Sometimes It Is. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
Sometimes It was the liour of the spelling les son, and the teacher was pronouncing the words while the small persons in front of her laboriously wrote them down. According to tire usual cus tom, she called for volunteers to de fine each word as it was written down. "Lunch," she said. "Now, who can tell me what 'lunch' means?" There was a long period of silence, then a hand went up. "Well, Johnny, you may tell us what lunch is." "A lunch." said Johnny, "is what you have for dinner when your father is away."
The Old Man and the Judge. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 April 1914
The Old Man and the Judge. In an Irish court recently an olil man was called into the witness-box ond, being infirm and just a little blind, he went too far in more than one sense. Instead of going up the stairs that led to the box, he mount ed those that led to the Bench. Said the Judge, good-humoredly: "Is it a judge you want to be, mv good man?" "Ah, sure, your honor," was the re ply, "I'm an ould man now, atul rnebbe it's all I'm lit for." . The Judge had no ready retort. By being handled kindly, coit.? soon become gentle, and are mucli more easily handled when they become horses.

Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her- husband. . She wanted to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting her news, for if there were an up right, steadfast, high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might not like her having written to the hotel io invite Mr. Kruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law yer to Sunnyside.

Ways of Water-Wizards. & TACTS ABOUT AN EXTRAORDI NARY PHENOMENON. _ Although the art of the water -di riner has beon condemned as witch craft and, in some coses, the power ho claims has been denied, yet it is a. fact that certain men possess an inexplicable power which enables them, by tlio use of a twig. to loll whether water is running beneath the surface of the ground. The twig Is V-shaped, and is held between the thumb and the forefinger of each hand by the ends, the apex of the V pointing downwards. A hazel twig is generally used, but a fork ed twig of almost any living tree will suffice, if the bearer possesses this strnnge power. . That it is a power is undeniable, for one well-known water-diviner has said that he feels a thrill through hie arras when the twig is over water, and, after he lias been water-finding all day, often cannot sleep at night, and is thoroughly exhausted, When the twig is ovor running Water-slafiiiaitt wotcr has not the slightest effect upon it...
