INTERESTING CLIPPINGS. fair play's a duel. A Frenchman (who had refused every pre vious; invitation to fight n duel, on the ground t'uvt he had never fought before, and was therefore most unlikely to prove a victor in ttny encounter) was at last compelled by his friends to meet an adversary who had grossly insulted him intlieUois do Boulogne, and fit very short notice. With his heart in his mouth, ho went to the spot indicated by -his second, and after a few passes, during which he remained unscathed, ho managed to peno* irate the right lung of his antagonist with a small but exceedingly sharp sword. Having duly certified the death of one of the comba feints, the surgeon in attendance escorted tha Conqueror to the railway station, remarking as he took his ticket for Brussels, " Don'tdis couuty our lickings before you're scratched."

OLD BONES. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 July 1914
OLD BONES. A'lout fifty years ago there were discovered by some labourers, who were digging in the ; gvavei in front of St. John's College, Oxford, ! Borne " giants ' bones." They were carefullj placed in a wheelbarrow, and trundled oil ta ■ the professor of geology, who had the rcpu» t Uion in that city of giving the best price fo't ' old bones. The discoverers of this osseous trensure trove presently returned to their matea : with' the information that the docter had de cided the bones to be not bones of giants, but of olephants, and that he had given them — ' although there was no brag about it in i hi* windows"—two sovereigns more per p jund than they oould have obtained at anj other place. But how came an elephant to have been buried in the middle of the street? Th$ ! oldest inhabitant at once decided that, al though the doctor, had, as was usual witl} him, his book-learned theory, the elephant was one that had died in Mr. Wombwcll'a 'menagerie when it was being exhibited in l....

SONNET. Canst thou not wait for Love one flying houS O heart of little faith? Are fields not green i Because their rdling bounty is not seen? Will beauty not return with the new ^ower.

Shall sunlight no more tliriil the world with power? j True love is patient ever; by the brooks [ He hath his winter-dreams, a fluent choir, ; , And waits for summer to revive again; j He knows that by-and-by the woodland-noolia j Will overflow with blossoming green fire, And swooping ewallown herald the warm raia. —Edmund Qo&sc.
A BEAUTIFUL SPONGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 July 1914
^ A BEAUTIFUL SPONGE. "Some of the most beautiful things that live in the ocean are the sponges oi the great depth,>, which have often very curious and interesting forms," said a naturalist. ."Not the least remarkable are the so-called ' sea . nests,' which arc in the form of spheres or sometimes egg shaped. The outer coat of one of these specimens is % complicated network, over which a delicate membrane is spread. An ornamental frill adorns the upper part while the lower portion throws out a maze of glossy filaments like fine white hairs. These hairs penetrate the semi-fluid mud in every direction, thus holding the sponge in its place, while a continuous current of water is drawn by waving ' cilia1 through all parts of the mass, passing out by a hote at the top. In this manner the animal absorbs jvhat* ever food may be afloat. ■Detroit Frte rrtts.

ROBERT FULTON'S FIRST PADDLE-WHEEL BOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 July 1914
■ROBERT FULTON'S FIRST PADDLE-WHE5L BOAT. It was said of the boy Robert Fulton ihat he was what might be called a duJ scholar, and once when chided by his teacher for his inattention to his studies he replied that his head was so full of original notions that there was no vacaut place to store away the contents of dusty books. One of the neighbours of hla father, one Denter Grumpp, was very fond of fishing, and he had built for this pur* pose a flat-bottomed boat or scow, and he used to avail himself of the labours of his son Christopher and his neighbour's son Robert to aid him in his pursuit, by getting them to pole the boat over the waters of the Concstoga, while b' /ish poled the perch and the bass imo thQ boat. As well may be imagined, this was not much amusement for th$ boys, but one of them put on his thinking cap is he pushed his way alo ig, and, as usual, pushing and thinking won in tbQ end. Tiring of pole-pushing, Robert Fulton concluded that he would go over the hills and...
