NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 14 January 1914

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl Is a thorn in the flesli to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin with—observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until.you feel almost ready to | accept anyone. When "she isn't irritating you, the I newly-engaged girl is rather funny— over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar sntly occupies the place o£ sun, moon, stars and all light. * If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. and then, in other ways, she is so lifelessly selfish. \Jut perhaps the personal vanity of ! tie engaged girl enrages her femin i irej acquaintances more than any of ; hif numerous failings. To have to stand by and behold an in...

IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

IF WE KNEW. Could we 'but draw back the curtains' That surround each other's lives, See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Ofteu we should find it better, Purer than wo judge we should— We should love each- other tetter, If we only understood. Could wo judge all deeds by motives, See the good and bad within. Often we should love the sinner. All the while we loathe the sin. Could we know the powers -working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. It we knew che care and trials. Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seen), I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hinder? Would we pity where we blame? Ah! we judge each other harshly. Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action f Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good; Oh! we'd love each other better. ...

Knew Him Well. It was a contested will case, ana J one o£ the witnesses, in tho course of giving evidence, described the tes tator minutely. "Now, sir," said counsel for the de I fence, "I suppose we may take it, from tho flattering description you Uavo given of the testator, his good points, and his personal appearanca generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "Ho was no acquaintance of mine!" "Indeed! Well, then, you must have observed him very carefully , whenover you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. "Now, now, don't trifle with the Court, please!

WIT AND HUMOR. The Colonel's Moral Sense. Apropos of a scandal in the new lork Bar, Bishop Winston C. Ruther torci told the following story:-— Tip morals of the New York Bar seem to be about like the morals of Colonel Byrne, no better and no worse. Colonel Byrne, a Iventuckian, de fended a man for' murder. U was tes tified that this man murdered a wo man on the night of August 20. Two or three witnesses saw the deed. It I was committed under the inilky light i °f a full moon. The witnesses were able to iden tify the defendant on account of the 'brilliance of the moonlight. The de fendant could not prove a'J alibi, and things looked pretty 'had for him. Nut at this point Colonel Byrne pro duced an almanac showing that on the night in question there had been no moon whatever. Thereupon a great laugh resounded through the court room, and the defendant was speedily acquitted. "Colonel," said the defendant, after wards, "how much do I owe you?"

Presence of Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 21 January 1914

Presence of Mind. In front, of his Chelsea (Eng.) House Sir Thomas Moro had a garden and gatehouse,, ami, as there was a pleas ant view from the summit of the gate house, he used frequently to sit there, accompanied only by his dog. Here it -was that he was found one after noon by a wandering maniac, who crept upstairs and saw the feeble old man dozing. "Leap, Tom, leap!" he cried, and at the same time tried to throw him over the battlements. .More had not physical strength enough to resist, but he had the wit to say: "Let us first throw this little dog over." The man immediately throw down the dog. "Pretty sport," said the Lord Chan cellor. "Now, go down and bring him up again." While the madman went down for the dog, More made fast the door be hind him, and so managed to hold the fort until deliverance came.
