DOUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
DOUBLES. Tennyson, who resembled Dickens, had, despite disparity of years, an almost per feet "'double" in Sir Leslie Stephlen. Per haps it is similarity of occupation or in terests that breeds resemblance, for Pro fessor Schrader was so like Huxley that even their intimate friend Grant Duff mis took one for the other, and Sir Laurence Alma Tadema was scarcely distinguishable from his brother artist Du Maurier. The theory, however, hardly accounts for the ludicrous resemblance of Edmund Yates and the late Shah of Persia: As to doubles in appearance, Lord Airlie and Sir George Campbell-two prominent Liberals of thirty odd years ago--were so much'alike that even their intimates found it hard to distinguish one from the other. At a meeting in the Corn Exchange, Edin burgh, during the M-idlothian campaign of 1870 after Lord Airlie had proposed a vote of tianls to the candidate, 'Gladstone rose and expressed his.thanks to "my friend, Sit George Campbell, for the kind terms in which he ha...

THE TALKING MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
• • . --rt~~i~~~ ·k~u·;'~ THE TALKING MMOOi. "Flo does not bark at the moon only sometimes, and then she has some reason." I knew Ned Treves, Flo's master, well enough to be sure that, whether the dog had reason or not for barking at the moon, he had some reason for making the asser tion. Ned was not quite 16, but without being a "calculating bov" I had great're spect for his knowledge of arithmetic as superior to my 6wn,.and his total want of iniagination, in which respect I had the advantage. He was a dry, cold observer withlia philosophie turn of mind. 'This he proceeded to show by taking it for granted that I could not be expected to credit his assertion unless he gave some proof of it. Ic was sitting on a log withL the dog close to him. Hle took her up in his arms and held her head facing the full moon, patting her gently as I thought to incite her to bark at it. But Flo would not bark, but w:hen she could not turn her head aside she did her eyes, almost pain fully straining th...

All. the other. nind jammers had left the Australian coast months before, but she had gone into dry dock to be generally overhauled.- There her.rigging was condemned, and she had to wait two months before she couhld be ire fitted.

The Arranmore slugged away through it, fight ing her. hardcst to get round, and being blown back whenever she got so far, for more than a fortnight. that the hearts were fairly worn out of the mbn.

I am not slwprised at. this. In training .a p~ugilist or a jockey to .get off weight, the process is to make the sub: ject sweat as mudch as qossible. So -Mr. Watt's loss of weight is accounted 'for.
