A Successful Conference Fecehal Ministers must lie warmly congratulated on (he outcome of the Premiers' conference. It 19 on thoir administrative doings rather thin on any measures th'-y can hope to p*S8 limb tliey must) rely. And, by the display of tact, mastery of detail, and 1 conciliatory spirit, they have got out of the Premiers' conference the bust it is possible for that body to i-ive. It must ho admitlod, further, that the tonoof the conference was, on the whole, admirable. The display of party feeling wa9 natural enough, but when big issues cama under consider ation there was a growing inclination to pub Australian intorssta first, and the scoring of party points second.

Bumptious Cecil. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Bumptious Cecil. Cecil Rhodes's masterfulness and sense of importance met with littlo opposition as a rule, but a little Ger man clerk in the Transvaal Govern ment offices at Johannesburg before the war taught him a lesson. "Please attend to me at once," thun dered the Colossus, "I can't wait." "When your turn comes, mister," replied the clerk. "Confound you, man! Don't you know who I am?" asked Rhodes. "Oh, yes, I know you; ibut don't you worry about me," was the clerk's un ruffled reply. "If you were in Cape Town I would have you discharged at once!" roared the great man. "Yes," said the clerk, very cooily, "I've .heard they discharge people in Cape Town for doing their duty. But this isn't Cape Town-this is a Re public."

An Eye-Opener. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Eye-Opener. A workman was pushing a loaded truck near a small village in Bedford shire, when upon neariug the foot or a steep hill lie was overtaken by a pedestrian whom the workman ac costed with the words, "Here, mate, take hold of this, quick. I've got something in my eye." The walker did so, upon which the workman walked 011, and, pulling out his hand kerchief, commenced to wipe his eye, making great faces and grumbling about "the confounded thing," and hoping he would soon get it out. This continued until they reached the top of the hill, when his compan ion asked him what it was he had in liis eye. He replied, "That hill." Whistler had a French poodle o£ which he was extravagantly fond. This poodle was seized with an affec tion of the throat, and Whistler had the audacity to send for the great throat specialist, Mackenzie. Sir Morel!, when lie saw that he had been called to treat a dog, didn't like it much, it was plain. But he prescribed, pocketed a big fee, and drove away. T...
WOMEN TO CACKLE 1000 YEARS HENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
WOMEN TO CACKLE 1000 YEARS HENCE. An English scientist lias predicted a dire calamity for the woman of a thousand years from now. She will cackle Instead of talk! A man of 1913 could not possibly understand a woman of 3013. But man in general will have been slowly accustomed to the change in the course of centuries, so that the dreadful catastrophe will not burst upon a society entirely un prepared. H. A. Henderson, of London, is the sponsor for tho dismal forecast. And he b&lt;ames the modern woman, claim ing that she is paving the way, slow ly but steadily. She is wrecking the vocal cords of her sex by abusing them shamefully. Even now, he says, tc overhear any feminines chat at random is to be conscious of a cackle that could give points to the noisest of lien yards. And it is towards that same cackle that the voice of the soft er sex is drifting. A number of different causes are given as responsible for this change. Our soft-voiced mothers and grand mothers did not have ...

He Came to See the Moon. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
He Came to See the Moon. The death of Sir Robert Ball, the famous astronomor, will be regretted by every one of the many thousands who have heard him lecture, for as a lecturer he had an unusually intim ate and friendly manner that put him on good terms with his audience the moment he began to speak. His fund of good stories, too, was apparently limitless. Among the anecdotes lie enjoyed telling was one relating to the time he was at the Dunsink Observatory. A working man called to see him one day, and in reply to Sir Robert's question, he said he wanted to see the moon through the telescope. "Certainly!" replied Sir Robert; "and if you'll come back this evening I'll be glad to let you use the tele scope." "Can't I see it now?" asked the man in evident astonishment. "No, I'm afraid not," said Sir Ro bert. "You must wait till the even ing." "But, lor' bless ye!" exclaimed the man, "I can seo it myself at night without any old telescope." And he walked off with an air of great disgust...

Deafening. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Deafening. The youth was In danger of drifting into bad courses, when one of the noble people who interest themselves in such cases persuaded him to accept employment on a farm. Alas! a week later the lad reappeared in his old haunts. "What, James!" exclaimed his bene factor, reproachfully, "back again? Why didn't you stay on the farm?" "I couldn't stand the country, sir," answered the bred-and-born gutter snipe. "Too quiet for ye-eh?" "Quiet, not 'art; much too noisy," cried James. "Why, crikey, sir, it was fair deafenin*. Wot wi' the. row of the birds in the daytime, and the noise of the silence at night, I' very near went off my 'ead."
Then He Was Somebody. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Then He Was Somebody. "Yes, sir," said Philip, "I've come to the conclusion that I amount to something after all. There have been times when I was disposed to believe that I was a mere cipher in the world, but I can never have so small an opinion of myself again." "What has caused this sudden change in your estimation of votir self?" "I have just been talking to a man who wants my vote." Forty women are a delusion: one woman is a snare. Beauty is as inseparable from truth as fragrance from a rose.
