CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness* There are few people responsible for more harm in. the, ■■world than, the1 thoughtless person; and his plea, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I -didn't think," is poor consolation to those, who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty" years: and more ago, an old woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt,, we may foe sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started 'by that over-turned lamp in the Chicago cow-shed, swept ia tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred, ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in tire: inferno of fire, 98,500. persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to. the extent of £38,000,000. In Kan...

MAN-EATING FOXES, That the fox may be a man-eater ap pears from experience in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, accus tomed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to her, surrounded with.- footprints of foxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile albove sea-level.

Finally she decided it was up to h.er to start some thing, so the next time lie called she pointed to the rose in. his buttonhole and said, "I'll give you a kiss for that rose."

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, possibly in the same building, can 'be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine hair-brush -was the first instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts •with a camel's hair pen dipped in ink. Next door probably is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between the two, in the long, his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came into use for TVTiting Sn (the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, and its use spread from ...

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living' things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air of food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superfluous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. /The baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guidejt. In its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the time it weighs ...

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS. 'Damages of £500 for breach of pro mise are claimed toy Miss Emma Ma haney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. John Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a Civil War veteran, in a suit she has brought at Paterson, New Jersey. Mass Mahaney says that the last she saw of her fiance was in 1863 as he was. leaving for the Civil War. She never married, believing that same day the sweetheart of her youthful, days would return to claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting with him, she was^overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. * Wolf, who informed her that he had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the spunsiter alleges the vet eran wooed her with all the ardor which characterised him before the •war, and finally he proposed mar riage. She made all the preparations for the ceremony at great expense. When everything, iwas ready Mr. Wolf wrote saying that the marriage could never take place. Miss Mahaney bases her ...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a. young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire- firm,, threw -up his situation and. left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means> and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon 'became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave, place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling; her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find, on her arrival that Dreher, no , doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she. traced him to Italy, where he was. found in Rome, . employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed toy the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived", on landing at Dover, to give them the slip.

II [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of Questioning. The long day on board the Chris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a month must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pittanc...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. Tliey put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what he intended to do, and she had lieard him without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the- north east kept them to the saloon and to Ihe Archdeacon's humors. The child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and that fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and his knowledge of domestic jurispiudetice intruded hap pily upon this, curious situation. Of j Leila he formed a truly clerical opin | ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was i o. little wild. It 'Was quite possible that this ibeautiful siren they had. trapped at Newcastle was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Too. many strings- to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition . wheir he is. in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change, them. A contented mind, may toe a 'feast, •but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult, to keep his head- above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may toe willing to lend~a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is 'why the young folk, are so giddy.. The man that a woman, says 6he does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the' best families. Instinct i...

m. Meanwhile tlxere. was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what: he meant to do, and she listened; without protest. His own motor car would, be waiting for them at Stran raer*- his: own launch would take' them ashore, "They know me here," he said„ "there will be no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to. hold his tongue, I do not suppose the cackle of it. has travelled so far. We shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be time enough when we get there for my sister and me to decide what is the best thing; to be done." She looked up quickly at the word: sister. "Do you: think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," he said, "Geraldine- is one ot the best little women in the world; she doesn't always, seem to be, but that's her manner. As I am: her principal divinity I shall be very much surprised if she does not share my ...

IN DIGESTION. CAN IT BE BANISHED? [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

IN DIGESTION. —: :o: , CAN IT BE BANISHED? Now, can it? Must a woman goon suffering from headaches, biliousness, flatulence, pains after eating, langour, or any of the other distressing symptoms that arise from faulty action of the stomach or the liver? Must men ba made less fit for work, less able to keep pace with their competitors, because in digestion is sapping their energies,'and clogging their minds? Have men and women to go on enduring these things without hope of recovery? Assuredly not! Most cases of acute indigestion are the result of neglect or of indifference. People get into a foolish habit of think ing that they will be better on the mor row, or in a week or two, and so the complaint gets hold and the sufferer goes from bad to worse. Food ought to give up its life-sustain ing elements for every nerve and muscle iD your body ; it ought to replenish the rich, red stream of blood flowing through your reins, and help you to think, to act, and to work with the vim of the h...

A HOME-MADE HAIK G "ROWER THAT DOES MARVELS. :o: During the last few years announce ments have appeared occasionally tell ing how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have tried it have ob tained such remarkable results. One lady writes that immediately aftor read ing the formula, she went to her chemist and had him put up as directed, 1 ounce of Lavona de Composee, J dram Menthol Crystals, and 3 ounces Bay Rum. She took this home, and although her hair had been falling out terribly and she was threatened with baldness, she was aston ished and delighted to note that the fall ing out of the hair stopped immediately, and the hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact, . she Btates i that it has already grown nearly 8 inches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier, and more luxuriant than ever, and is still growing. She rubbed the tonic into the ro...

II. Not so the. Archdeacon; he had de cided to remain. Closeted -with Hugh in the private caibin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that you propose to take her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h=> said; "if we did that always, life would be rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that 1 have met one of the "best of women, and that s1 e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask my sister to take up her case. After that it will be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though they were oil u...

The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and discussed it 3n awesome tones above the very cabin where Leila -watched Desdy in his heayy sleep. This was a rare "blow to them, for they perceived immediately that It meant the end of their holiday. Far from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they had throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hugh Donald himself to be a man who would never marry. His aversion to the sex had become a 2)y-word among them, and -yet here was the very, truth. "A girl aboard the ChristaJbel!" But for the light in the cabin, which was unoccupied yes terday, they never would have be lieved it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to them, and hi...
