WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If bo, here Is a recipe-buy wrecks. A beach boat which cost about £200 to build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" Was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. He obtained. from it nearly eighty tons of copper; fittings and sheathing. This alone re*-' turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a large quantity of'copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally consisted...

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

OLD POETS. If I should live In a forest I And sleep underneath a tree, No grove of whispering saplings . Would make a home for me. | I'd go where the old oaks gather, Serene and Rood and strong, And they would not sigh and tremble ! And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet j Is the poet who's old and wise, I With an old white beard, and wrinkles | About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets | A-rhyming their hours away, They won't bo still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet Bcreams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And Bilence rich and sweet. There iB no peace to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about the wars to be ...

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. In the deep pine forests of Norway the wood-cutters sometimes And a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was made up of millions of little worms, they might be frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August in large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on tliis journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or Btone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this purpose...

A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. The completion of the Los Angeles aqueduct.

Tho ten aqueducts of ancicnt Homo were marvels of engineering skill and durability; but their construction stretched over a period of five cen turies, against the eight years that have elapsed since the Los Angeles aqueduct was firBt proposed, and tho length and dimensions of the auclent Roman aqueducts bear no comparison with that of modern Los Angeles, The longest of tho Roman aqueducts was 62 miles, while the Los Angeles aque duct is 254 miles in length, from tho mtake on Owens River to the city limits of Los Angeles.

THE DRINKING VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

THE DRINKING VESSEL. When birds are entirely confined to scratching-sheds tho drinking vessel Is often a source of a good deal of trouble and loss ot time, lor tho water gets fouled by the birds scratch ing litter into it, and a wide area round about tho vessel Is otten made sodden and offensive by tho splash ings. To removo or avoid theso evils is a simple matter. Take a half-bar rel, place it upside down In the shed, and put the drinking vessel on the top of it. Thus elevated, tho water will not get fouled, nor will the litter bo made wet. And the birds, being confined, will rather enjoy than other wise the diversion of hopping up to the liquor table when so inclined.

THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. The real art of dressing well does not He In slavishly following the {qbIi Ion, but In choosing styles and colors to suit oneself, nnd in this wny em phasising one's best points. A gown, however, simple, should 4>e chosen with due regard to one's own personality, but to do this it is neces sary to spend more than one can afford. iThe great mistake so many women .nake in the matter of dress is in not pausing to consider whether the gown or hat they intend having will suit their own particular style of beauty. Because a hat or frock looks well upon your friend it does not follow that it will look equally well on you. Your coloring and figure may be dif ferent, and In that case the same dress cannot suit you equally well. To be well dressed a woman must too suitably dressed, and all the ac cessories, which make so great a dif ference to the effect, must be care fully chosen.

THE OLD SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

THE OLD SONGS. I'm fond of "Annto Laurie"; To hoar it Is a boon. Nobody in that BOIIK declares That he's n Zulu coon. "Wnslilngton Herald.'

Taught by Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

Taught by Experience. Ho entered the shop of a fashionable bootmaker, a look of determination on his face. It was such a look as one sees on the face ot a man who Is firmly resolved to carry out, at all ha zards, a decision which will change the whole course of his life. "H'm!" he began, as the assistant stepped forward and politely question ed him as to his requirements in feet beautifiers. "I want a pair of shoes for my wife, Mrs. Drown." "Yes, sir, certainly," said the young man, briskly. "Same stylo and size as last week?" "Same style. Size, fives-wide lives," replied Brown, decidedly. "But-er-oxcuse me, Mrs. Brown only takes-that 1B, she usually has three-and-a-half," exclaimed tho assist ant, who knew the lady well. "Are you married, young man?" queried Brown, sternly, tho look of de termination deepening on his care worn features. "Er-not yet, sir,", answered the shopman, blushing. "I thought not," returned Brown. "I am! 1 am not going to suffer half an liour'B purgatory evey...

PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married and in the prime of their maturity, are apt to Bmlle at the remembranco of their dreams of the Ideal lover. They would not exchange the hum drum husband who perhapB goes to Bleep after dinner regardlcsB of a wife's presence for the most perfect lover who loved merely in their im agination. Perhaps they have discovered that, for their own part, they, too, may dif fer strongly from the ideal wife of which the husband dreamed. There may be shortcomings oa 'both Bides. But both husband and -wife have grown to love tho imperfect human being who has lived with them for so many years, and who lins long taken the place in their hearts of tho moBt fascinating but unreal man or woman who went by tho name of their Ideal.

The owner of the estate upon which the tower stands was Lord de Freston, whose beautiful daughter, Ellen, possesed intellectual abilities or a high order.

BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create It. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create It. To bo beautiful anil to retain that beauty for any length of time, you must have "No heart and a good di gestion." That sounds dreadful, does it not. It does not mean, however, that you must be crfilous and indiffer ent to the suffering of others, only that you should not needlessly grieve and worry over your own sorrows. You should cultivate the feeling, "Well, it can't be helped 1 must make the best of it." A smile is always more acceptable than a tear; smiles belong to youth, and joy, and content, and are aids to beauty. It is part of every woman's business to look her best. Here are a few hints to assist you. Ward off indigestion 'by proper at tention to food, and exorcise all your muscles every day for at least ten minutes. Absolute cleanliness is essential to beauty.

III. "My own darling Nance, I " "Stop a bit," interrupted Ferrer3, shrewdly, "I'm not so sure that her name is Nance and, anyway, that's a sight too familiar an' hopeful to please a girl of her spl/'t. What's the name sho were chris-ou?d In? You can't be too partic'Iar when you're a-dealing with magic, and what's a charm 'cept a bit of black art?" "There's something in that," re plied Brace, slowly nibbling at I ho end of the penholder. "But I'm blessed if I know what she was sprin kled under." "Here's Tom Wood; he's pretty cuto about gals," said Ferrers. "We'll a6k him." And before Brace could enter ; a protest, Wood was hailed and seat ed at the table, making the (unwel come) third. Brace, who was the soul of selfish ness, had no further use for Wood, since he was taken up so much with Ferrers, so he had dropped him like a hot potato, not feeling inclined to stand drinks for two thirsty, penni less friends at the same time. His friendship for Ferrers was fev erishly hot, and since...

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 1 May 1914

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. Just as the chin gives qualities to the face, so the thumb marks tne personality of the hand, and Is an unerring index to a man's natural strength or weakness of character. Tho man with a long, straight thumb, Bquare at the tip, possesses good mental capacity, and can al ways be relied upon to carry out successfully any work with which he may be entrusted. His temperament is eron and judicial; he is a born governor of men, overcomes difficul ties, carries himself with dignity, and by his ability to concentrate all his faculties upon the matter in hand, combined with his tenacity of pur pose, rapidly becomes a powor among his fellows. If the thumbs be long, thick, and heavy at the tip, with the joints prom inent, a tyrannical and cruel nature is indicated, everything being viewed from an intensely selfish standpoint. A Bhort, straight thumb shows ob stinacy and driving power. If very thick and heavy at the tip, a brutish, unreasoning disposition will bo no t...

CHINESE FUNERAL. A most curious sight Is th> amoral of n Chinee, and In describing i'w» samo It is necessary briefly to relnte the mode of procedure just prior to and after death. When a Chinese becomes danger ously ill, if tho relatives coiisidor there is no hope of Ills recovery, Ills face is turned towards tho window, and once thus turned, ho seldom re covers. In passing, I think it just as well to mention that in China It is not necessary to have any medical train ing or pass any qualifying examina tion to become a doctor, but tho aver age Chinese medico has usually pre pared himself by careful perusal of books written for that purpose pre vious to establishing himself as a curer of Ills. Of course tho success of his practice depends largely on his ability to cure. But there Is no law In China to prevent an unqualified man from practising. After death, the body Is taken into tho parlor, whero the corpse is dress ed in special clothes-the best tho family are able to procuro - ...
