CIGARETTE SMOKING A MENTAL DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 March 1914

CIGARETTE SMOKING A MENTAL DUU«. A few days ago I was having an argument, In which the (|Ucstion of the cigarette habit arose. For a while the pleasures and harm of Kuch smoking were discussed, and then one .sold, "Well, my cigarettes are a groat cdih fort to me. I cannot do anything with out them." And another, ait ominenL medical man, answered, "Yes, Ihey are a mild , drug. Prohably they will do you but little harm; but they translate action Into thoughts of action, and thoughts of action into dreaming!" Ills words remained U\ my head and refused to bo ousted. And now, a.s I sit down to write this, they have re turned to mo with greater force and clearer import than ever. ►So many of us are mental cigarette Honda! Do you understand what I mean?

ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 March 1914

ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. Anxiety for the safety of Captain Bartlett and his party, who are adrift In tho Polar pack Ice, separated from Mr Stefansson, who is on the mainland, Is greatly stimulated because it is known by his intimates that Bartlett's ship, the ICarluk, was worn out and condemned as a whaler before the ex pedition started (says the Now York correspondent of "Tho Daily Tele graph," December 11). This statement will be questioned probably, but I have seen a letter to-day penned by Cap tain Bartlett himself, and never hither to published, severely indicting the old craft, and gravely questioning her fit ness for the work in hand. Writing ; from Nome, Alaska, to "The Daily Telegraph's" informant at New York, Captain Bartlett, who Is a British subject, and was captain for Peary on his successful trip to the North Pole, says: "I only wish we had tho Roosevelt (Peary's old ship). Then we could (to something. This boat, the Kurluk, Is a poor 'tooth.' She has 110 stre...

MAN IN THE FUTURE "That man is formed for tho futures, that tho very structure and shape ol his soul points and urges him onward, , is, perhaps, the surest of all pledges about his future" (writes In "The Christian "World").

GARDENER WANTED QUALIFICATION CONSIDERED [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 March 1914

GARDENER WANTED QUALIFICATION CONSIDERED A few days ago I .saw a very attrac tive) advertisement in "The Church Times," and T reproduce it so that my readers may join in the wild rush that is sure to follow so tempting an offer (writes in "The Daily News") WANTED, GARDENER, gentleman by birth and education.

In order to prevent disappoint I think tho advertiser should explain dearly all that is meant by the phrase "geutlo inan by birth and education," as .some applicants for this remarkably good thin*? might be able to pass the test in regard to gentle birth and then fail owing to insufficient education.

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SOTTO VOCE (From "The Westminster Gazette") [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 March 1914

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SOTTO VOCE (l«"rom "The Westminster Gazette") A king of Sotto Vocc once had the misfortune to offend a wizard of his acquaintance, with the result that he was visited with the Curse of the Six Categories. This was quite as bis a llilng as It looks, for it meant that six attempts would be made upon the king's person by a specially chosen demon. At the first atompt the Icing would lose his right hand; at the sec ond, his arm; third, his left hand; fourth, his left arm; fifth, his right leg; and last, his left leg. The Icing, having had some experi ence of wizards and their pet curses knew that his only chance was to make the demon-in-oharge aim his Hhafts crookedly. This can done by a smart mortal, but It is necessary to de cide upon a plan quickly, for demons are always very keen to begin their work. They are, however, not al lowed to aim until they have sent a letter to their intcnucu victims; mat one of the laws relating to curses which vou will find in Sta...

"When arrested he handed the detective a list of his de falcations, amounting to £193/12/G. The prisoner now said that the money was taken to meet the instal ments due to three money-lenders. The trouble arose when he took a house at Maidenhead five years ago. Ho then owed £50, and went to the money-lenders to prevent his goods from being seized.

BLIND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 13 March 1914

BUND MUSICIANS CHILDREN AS COMPOSERS Those who attended yesterday morn ing's sitting: at the St. Paul's 'Girl's School, Hammersmith, of the Vacation Conference on Musical Education (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 8), saw and heard a remarkable demon stration. It was given by a group of boy. .and girl pupils from the Royal Normal College for the Blind, under the direction of Mr Horace Watling, one of the professors, himself deprived of sight, at that famous institution. Primarily, the performance of these blind juveniles was intended to illus trate a lecture by Miss Nancy Gilford on "The Creativo Faculty in the Pupil: How to Make Use of it as a Valuable lAgent in Teaching." Certainly, the demonstration achieved that purpose, but it did much more. It showed the marvellous Intensification, as it were, of the faculty of hearing, and the ex treme sensitiveness to niceties of rhythm and to tonal distinctions that seem tc compensate many of those born blind for their lack of vision....
