PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. | i Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst lie was incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Uyron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures oi Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been suflicient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whoso life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The ...

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a mau something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict: morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not tho same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never I appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree ot life ...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there'.' says 'Dobs,' 'What's the matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppose yo...

Leila and Her Lover. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. III. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

* Leila and Her Lover. By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. III. It was almost dusk when they re turned to the Castle, so altruistic had been their motives of delay. Lights shone from all the \pper windows o£ that venerable pile. Footmen in the halls below walked with the measured step of those who have found an oc cupation again after many days. Leila had begged that she might retire to her own cell during these hours of prescribed carnival, but he would not hear of it. "You owe me that much," he said. "Yau must save me from the tigers." She made no answer, and they en tered the'great hall together. There were guests already arrived—and a bruit of events which was ominous. She had not seen Desdy since lunch, and was pleased enough to hear his voice as she went up the great stair case from' the garden. He had been playing at tramways with the Archdeacon, and that vener able functionary, rose from the floor with knees which bore wi...

When She Began To Think. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

When She Began To Think. "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye iver think o' rnarryin'l" ! "Sliurc now," said Biddy, looking de- 1 murcly at her shoe—"shure now, the subject has niver entered me mind at all, at all." "It's 6orry, 01 am," said Pat, and he turned away. "Wan minute. Pat," said Biddy soft ly. "Ye've set me thinkin'." The ignorance of the masses on ar tistic inatters is appalling (said Mr. Walter Emanuel, speaking at a dis cussion on "Execution in Literature and Painting" at the Authors' Club recently). He was passing through one exhi bition recently when he saw a group of persons. One of them said, "Is it a droring?" The reply was, "No, stupid, it's an itching." A third person interrupted and said, "No, you are both wrong; it's a pas tille."

He knocks at the door, and you keep aw ful quiet In the hope that he will think there is nobody in, and go away."

Going Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

Going Cheap. ■ Some time ago a man was awaken- J ed in tlie uight to find his wife weep- . ing uncontrollably. j "My darling!" he exclaimed, "what 9 is tho matter?" i "A dream!" she gasped. "I hare g had such a horrible dream." V Her husband begged her to tell it j to him, in order that he might com- I fort her. After long persuasion she I was induced to say this:— « "I thought I was walking down the street, and I came to a warohouse where there was a large placard, 'Husbands for sale.' You could get beautiful ones for fifteen hundred pounds, or even for twelve hundred, and very nice-looking ones for as low as a hundred." Tho husband asked innocently: — "Did you see any that looked like me'" The sobs became strangling. "Dozens o£ them," gasped the wife, "done up in bunches like asparagus, and sold for ten shillings a bunch."

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever paid to the fair sex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop of New York, who was once asked by a lady wliy, in the many pictures and studies of^jingels exhibited, the angels were always de picted either as women or as young men without beardB or moustaches. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." This story is related by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey, -Ucar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines. He tells a story of the late Dr. Creighton, who once received a book from a second-rate author, to whom he replied by post, "I thank you very much for forwarding to me your book, and I promise you faithfully that I will not lose any time u...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 6 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. A strong solution of borax poured down sinks and drains will banish of fensive smells. A little ground aimonds mixed through a fruit cake will prevent the fruit sinking to the bottom. If you want to beat a flat-iron in your room, a tin plate over the pas jet will enable you to heat the iron twice aa quickly. Before blanching almond* soak thow for two or three minutes in boiling water; the skin will then slip 0j-f quite easily. Scorch marks on linen may be re moved by rubbing with a l'res'acut onion, the garment being after-yards soaked in cold water. To stop hiccough, givo the putient a teaspoonful of granulated sugar and vinegar. If this does not afford in stant relief, repeat the dose. When boiling any kind of greens, use sugar in place of soda, which gives the greens a much better fluvor, but they then require a little longer cooking.

The drawbacks of a chemists' profession are the Jong hours, and having to listen all day long to other peoples' aches and pains —and no matter how dog fired we may get we cannot take a glass of anything, having always to keep a clear brain. Perhaps, after all, it's a good thing for us that we've to be so very careful, because it makes us turn to tea, and tea's as goad a thing as an>body can drink— of course, when I say tea, I mean pure tea, and presume that it's not overdrawn in the making—now, as nice a cup of tea as anybody need ask fbr is Robur No. 1 Grade — don't stew it — let it draw just " five minutes "—no longer—that's the secret of a good cup of tea — you'll remember that, won't you?
