High Art Photography Display [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

High Art Photography Display High art photographs in every sense of the form 'aptly describos the new Easter I'.'^.iuii ell'ered to tho public recently at the famous studio of Richards and Co. Tho whole scheme of their spacious window lias been roniodelled, and the rcrdict, wc fcei assured, will be that u vlccided improvement in the elfec tivo display of each subject has been obtained. iTbe pictures themselves are quite up to tho high degreo of artistic excellence, for which tho firm of Rich ards and Co. has gained world fame. The large central studies are again a triumph, and collaboration of the artist, photograper and colorisi. Tho most pro minent is a life-size head study of a lovely litll# boy. The beautiful curls and chubby face of the little chap needed only the warm flesh tones to almost make tho picture lire. Very fine is the com panion picture a young girl gathering wood-riolflts. This is again a fitio achiovoment, tho expression of tho face being realistic, and the beauti...

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set tight your lips as if they speechless were, an' dumb. When some hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk of stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes the hardest knot, "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world; are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of stato perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hearty lau...

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. In the 1828 there appeared in the streets of Nuremburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se curely. Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. i Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, though, till his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— Lord Stanhope—and educated to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, 'who was now about twenty-one years old, according to...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at S p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before. Th...

Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box 111 front of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun; A passing tourist stopped to chat, and asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miics," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "iNo, I can't say as I do. You see. I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so tt-ey foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there arc thieving tramps and rattlesnakes: so this life is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, ...

I. - It was not dark when she went dawn the great drive towards the sea road, and the Forth Bridge could still be discerned far away at the narrows of tlie estuary. Beliind her lay the gloomy pile of Aberfeldy Castle; looking just the same s£s it had done at the hour of dawn just live days ago. Much had ■happened in those intervening hours.

II [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

II. The journey was dark and labori ous, as though material tilings were themselves conscious of fatigue. They roiled 1'roin station to station to the accompaniment of hissing steam and tired voices. There was no moon, but the northern lights shimmered upon ihe sleeping fields and discovered uu horizon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh should come with them, and lie got into the carriage manfully and eat down with an air of authority good to see. The excitement had waked liim thor oughly, and he asked them many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come iback? Was Lally still frightened of him? Hugh tried to tell him, but did not make much of a job of it. "You are going to Edinburgh, Desdy —to-morrow I will show you the shops and we will 'buy something good—you must not think of it now, old cha/p; you must try to sleep." The hoy looked at him in wide-eyed ■wonder. "Listen to the engine talkin'," he said. "Do you think it minds the dark, Lally? Is the man wlio dr...

III. The train was punctual at the ter minus; and it was just a quarter to twelve when the taxi-cab set them down at the Princes Hotel. Hugh was very -well known to the people there, and' he engaged a suite of rooms immediately and sent Leila up to them. His excited manner alarm ed her not a little, and when he told her that he must see some of his friends but would .be back before mid night, she knew that the true drama of her journey was about to be made kuown to her. Desdy was very tired by this time, and she put him to bed at once. The suite of rooms which Hugh had en gaged was the best in the hotel, and its magnificence sot the boy wonder ing. He prattled incessantly of what the engine had said to him, and what the ships had been doing—asked about the great cluster of electric lights in the sitting-room, and was delighted at the little lamp hy his bedside. When Leila had given him a drink of warm milk and some 'biscuits he fell asleep directly, and she sat by him, holding his h...
