ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY, In the ear 1323 there uppeared in the streets of NSremb?rg a youth who could apuarently not even stand se curely. Utpon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth In absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thling. Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, though, till his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the ncame of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dlark "hole," where lihe w.as fed by a mran every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which be had always seen him. At last KasDper Ilauser was taken in charge by an i-nglisb no'l',mran- Lord Stanhope-and educated to take the place of a clerk: but on.' day, while out walking, thle young man, who was now about twenty-one years o...
A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord" The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an homur. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "'garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before. T...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
VARIETIES. A man natirrally believes in the sur vival of the littest as long as he lives. Sonme preople are so sensitive that tlhey seemr to have corns all over them. Charity beins at homo, and often ruins its health by staying there too much. Constant rebuffs are the kicks of fate, and hope dies under them. It's not runtil a man wants to hbr row a sovereign that he discovers that he has so many close friends. However practical we deem it, that life loses itself which fails to keep in touch with thie invisible. Of all the dliscorerices which men need to make, thie miost inmportant at the present nmoment is that of thIe self forming power, treasured up in them selves. It is not so very long ago that cop per was uised in Swedenr as the chief mediumll of exchange, and at times erclrhanfs hadl to take wheelbarrows urith theim when they went to receive payments of large sums. Artificial eyes were first used by the Egyvptians, long before the Christian ara. They were fashioned of gold, il...
IT DIDN'T WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
IT DIDN T WORK. A man stood at the corner oa a atreet in a crowded thoroughfare, and after performing a few asmplo con juring tricks to attract the passers by, proceeded to his real business. ".ly friends," he began, "I have an article here to relieve suffering hiu smanity, thatia to say, all who soffer from coughs. I don't care ,whether the cough is chronic or tetiporary, whether it is a spring, summer, aui tumn, or winter cough, I will guar antee that one box of my 'kill-cough dropa'.will cure it, mand they're only 6d. a box. If you haven't a cough now, invest in a box and provide against one. You never know when a cough may seize you, so be in time. I tell you that I guarn guaran- Ought! ough!" Here the man broke into such a violent fit of coughing that it made his false teeth rattle. The crowd burst into a chorus of derisive yells, and someone shouted: "Why don't you take a box of your "kill-cough drops" and slaughter that there barking, you old fraud?" The manl held up his hand...
Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box in front of a log cabin In the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, mand asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "No, I can't say as I do. You see I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so tley foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise,. "hat was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week. and we have a shot at each other: and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to lnow if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel tourne, rep...
PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's tamo?n?s poem. "The Prison er of Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivrd. the Genev-an pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chatean of Chllon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Byron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhcod. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol. undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belIonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whles life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem 'hilst he was lylng in prison on ac countt of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "'The P...
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict: morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinlons weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ir Forant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so "f fectual. Everything that thou reprorest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.-Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can 1do in an hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles wh-n we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.-Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fall in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree of life b...
Going Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 April 1914
Going Cheap. Sotlm time ago a man was awaken id in thle night to find his wife weep Ing uncontrollably. "My darling!" he exclaimed, "wha. is the matter?" "A dream!" she gasped. "I have had such a horrible dream." Her husband begged her to tell it to him, in order that he might corn fort her. After long Dersuasion she was induced to say this: "I thought I was walking down the street, and I came to a warehouse where there was a large placard, 'Husbands for sale.' You could get beautiful ones for flifteen hundred pounds, or even for twelve hundred, and very nice-looking ones for as low as a hundred." The husband asked Innocently: "Did you see any that looked like me?" The sobs became strangling. "Dozens of them," gasped the wilfe, "done up in bunches like asparagus, and sold for ten shillings a bunch."
