A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. Somo years ago (saya a reader) I was employed as "general" In Scot land. We -were having exceedingly cold weather, so coin indeed, that every night I carried my bed from my bedroom to the kitchen floor, It being much warmer there. 1 had just retired, about midnight, one night, feeling rather tired after a long day's work, when clang, clang, clang! went my master's and mis tress's bedroom bell. Now, I had just begun to feel warm, and as the hour was so late, I did not intend to an swer it; 'but in a few seconds, clang, "lang, clang! went that bell again. I hastily rose, and slipped on a skirt, threw a sliawl round my shoulders, and opened the kitchen door. My mistress, who was standing up stairs on the landing, called down: "Annie, where did you put Mr. A's. nightshirt?" "Isn't it under the pillow?" 1 a6ked. Then Jfr. A. roared: "No; and you'd better come and find it!" Upstairs T went and searched every where, but all in vain, and "wasn't Mr. A. cross, and didn't h...

It will be opened in the afternoon and will continue at night and Thursday afternoon, con cluding on Thursday evening.

0WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a feast, but feasts nre indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of It. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she ories over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described' as that which tells a woman she Is right, whether she Is...

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

I THE POULTRY YARD. [saline remedies for poultry One of the cheapest, 6lmplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it ia in valuable, !;iid no poultry-keeper can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is often remedied iby a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful per bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline treatment is ■wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the int...

4. ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

4. ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, au employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, slie soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the ibrother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his purs...

JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

| JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUBLED LAND. (By E. Bruce Mltford. F.R.G.S., in "Th« , Dally Telegraph.") I With characteristic suddenness the i islands of Japan have added one more i to the already long list of their vol- j canic disasters. The unexpected and destructive outburst of the Sakuras hima volcano will serve to remind us that the land which the passing tourist is wont to apostrophise as that of the lotus—"where it is always afternoon"— is one of the moat troubled on the face of this planet. Japan has 160 separate volcanoes. Three-fourths of these are "dead." That is to say, they are so regarded official ly—in the maps of the Tokio geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the lie to the recorders of their history. Sakurashima, though not "dead," was generally thought to be "dying." Some ten years ago the . present writer was taken to task by a local pundit for describing this volcano, in a little work of reference, as fitill active. Two years before the great...

Avoiding Comparisons. "What is your objection to me as I a son-in-law? My character is be-, yond reproach." "That's just it," said Mr. Olsport. "You don't suppose I want to go through the rest of my life having ample!" In an asylum two worthies named Sandie and Tnm C rmed a plan to make their escape. Sandie Bays to Tam:— "Bend doon and I'll get on your back and get on the tap o' the wall and haul you up." Sandie gets on the top of the wall and slides down the other side, say ing: "Tarn, I think you'll toe better to stay anither fortnicht, for you're no near sane yet." A clever law3'er succeeded iu win ning his client's case and getting the better of n rather .bumptious barris fer. The latter couldn't conceal his > chagrin, and, meeting his victorious opponent in the Bmoke-room of the hotel nt which they were staying, he remarked, in a loud and spiteful tone: "Sir, is there any case too dirty for you, or any criminal so much dyed in crime that you won't defend?" "No," said the oth...

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 April 1914

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than -worry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty oC wrinkles on her brow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness to the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they see her. Her character is written in her face in wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could ob literate.
