Advising the Prophet. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 13 May 1914

Advising the Prophet. He entered tlie meteorological office, and said, in his jerky way: "This 'ere's where you give out weather predictions, ain't it?" The clerk nodded. "Well," continued the old man, "1 thought as how I would come up and give you some useful tips." "Yes?" said the clerk, politely. . "I've watched very carefully, an' I find that ye ain't always right." "No; we sometimes make mis takes." "Course you do. We all do some times. Now, I was thinkin' as how a line that uaed to be oil the auction handbills down in our county might da fust-rate on your weather predic tions, and save you a lot of explain in'." "What was the line?" "Wind an' weather permittin'." He wonL down without waiting to say good-bye. The finger of suspicion generally wears a wedding ring. Love is only an explanation—never an excuse. A woman never cares how good a man is If he'll only pretend to be bad.

THE BRIGHT SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 13 May 1914

I | THE BRIGHT SIDE. "He an optimist!" The speaker was ex-President Taft, the scene a New Haven dinner "Be an optimist! Emulate the poor old tramp! "A poor old tramp was plodding along during the first snow of the sea son. The gelid and moist air pierced through his flimsy rags. ' His hands were blue with cold. Nevertheless he shuffled along cheerily enough, through the two inches of snow that covered the footpath! "And this poor old tramp, thus shuffling along, smiled optimistically and remarked: 'There's one good thing about snow: it hides the holes in yer shoes.' "

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 13 May 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. | Be good and you'll be happy—and probably poor. A well-torcd child never reproves its parents in public. Give some men an inch of rope and they'll rope you in. To make tilings come your way it is necessary to go after them. Blessed is the man who doesn't give offence. Also he's unusual. Some married men make ideal com panions—away from home. Flirtation is the best game for two tnat lias ever been invented. There is no woman who does not believe herself an exception to a rule. Marriage means a constant obliter ation of self, a constant "give up." Most people are iikc eggs—too full of themselves to hold anything else. A woman resents hearing her hus band abused. It is usurping lier pri vilege. Delusions are like girls; we don't care to hug them unless they are at tractive. Love, is the only thing in tho world, and women who can't get it have tea instead. It is no use bluffing unless you have something to bluff with; and then you have no need to. Happy indeed is th...

"Some ladies is fearful stingy. 1 had one t'other day"—here Tom Whip pem, the caibman, smiled affectedly at his companion, drew an imaginary skirt, toyed with an invisible ijug dog and took two or three steps "with a mincing gait. "'Is your 'ansom disengaged:' says she. ' " 'Yes'm,' I answers. "'I trust your springs are in bor der?' she says again. " 'Ex'lent—Al,' I says. " 'Well, then, cabman, you may drive me to Regent place, No. 901; but be a-awful careful, for pooah deah King Charlie has been so bad late ly.'

NEVER MIND OUR TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 13 May 1914

NEVER MIND OUR TROUBLES. Learn ho\v to tell a story. A well told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick-roonr: Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself. The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows. Learn to stop croaking. If i'ou cannot see any good in the world, keep the' bad to yourself. Learn to hide your pains and aches under a pleasant smile. Learn to meet your friends with a smile. The good-hu mored man or woman is always wel come, but the dyspeptic wr hypochon driac is not wanted anyfherc, and is a nuisance as well.

A Pill Story. A farmer's wife laid down the mag azine that she had been reading and soulfully sighed. Her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man.

KEEP ON KICKING! [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 13 May 1914

KEEP ON KICKING! Two frogs one day—so runs the tale Went. out to reconnoitre; Wanting something to commandeer . To make their 'belts feel tighter. They fell—but how I cannot tell (I did not see them do it)— Into a pail of buttermilk, And soon began to rue "it. They kick'd, and kick'd, and kick'd again, But all their strength seemed wasted. : Tliey thougnt of liome, out in the fields. And all the joys they'd tasted. They slipped and climbed, they climb ed and slipped, They spluttered execration; Till one cried out, "I'll jack it up!" 'Twas his last exclamation. He lost all hope, gave up the fight, And sank 'neath milky waters; His mate kick'd on, resolved to see Again his wife and daughters. He jump'd and kick'd till he could feel The milk around him churning;' And in his breast, though cold his blood, The hope of freedom burning. The milk grew hard, the 'butter set; On it his feet he rested; Climib'd to the top. Success at last! Through pluck he'd not ibeen bested! Moral. When thing...

Wasted Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

Wasted Economy. A tourist was stranded in Norway with only enough money in his pocket to pay liis passage back to England. He thought the matter over, and came to the conclusion that ho would buy the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he yould go without food that length of time. lie realised that if he stayed in Norway till his money was spent he would never bo able to get back home. So lie went on board the steamer and bought his ticket. He closed his ears to the sound of the luncheon bell, and when dinner-time came, and a fellow passenger asked him to accompany him to the dining-room, he politely de clined 011 the ground that he felt somewhat unwell. The next morning he skipped break fast by getting up late, and at lunch time he kept to his room. At dinner time that evening, however, he was so hungry that he could have eaten a pair of shoes. "I am going to oat," he said, "even if I am thrown overboard afterwards. I might as well bo drowned as starved tc d...

JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. A Little Joke Which Failed. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE, f A Little Joke Which Failed. Jopkins had read somewhere that if a woman got hold of a newspaper with a clipping cut out of it she would never rest until she had pro cured a complete paper and read the missing item. This struck Jopkins as a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness ol' lovely woman and ho resolved to put it into practice. So that night when he went homo from the ollice there ostentatiously protruded from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which he had neat ly cut a paragraph referring to the rings of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw the paper to one side in a careless way, and after supper not ed with an unholy glee that Mrs. Jop kins had secured it and was running her eye over the bargain ads., and working her way, after the manner of her sex, through the personals, marriage notices, and locals, back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopkins observed a sud den and suspicious frown overcast her ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

The letter staggered Hugh, and his perplexity increased the more he thought upon it. Well done or Ill-done, ho felt it his duty to let Leila know exactly what had happened, and to let her know immediately, If she charged him with a breach of trust, ■he knew he would not defend him self with success, for had he not pledged his word to her, and would a woman believe him? Upon the oth er Bide was the wisdom of Geraldine. How shrewd she had been; how Quick to do the right thing! He began to see that all his hcroics in the prison were so much vain-glorious nonsense, and would never have stood the test of reason. It would have been mad ness to have carried away the lad upon the yacht, and opinion would have condemned both man and wife. Geraldine had solved the riddle. H' had yet to learn what pri-e of Leila's affections he must pay for her wit. Would Leila condemn him. He re membered her sweetness, her despair, the gentle sorrow she had made so brave an effort to hide from him. And he had...

Not Her Sort. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

Not Her Sort. After he had fallen upon his knees and kissed her hand she said: "Before I answer 'Yes' or 'No,' there are some things I would like to ask you. Do you ever drink or gamble?" "No," he eagerly replied. i"I do not know what the taste of liquor is; I have never defiled my lips with to bacco. I have never uttered a profane word in my life. I have never even played bridge where a prize was at stake." She looked at him thoughtfully for a moment, drew a long sigh, and then asked: "Have you ever broken a woman's heart?" "Ah, how can you ask me that?" he almost reproachfully answered. "If I had ever spoken words of love to another I. would lipt deem myself worthy to touch the hem of your gar ment. I have never cared for anyone I but you. I have never kissed any wo man except my mother. I have never given any girl cause to utter one sor : rowful sigh. Yours is the first dear, ! soft little hand that I have ever held in my own. Never before to-night have I looked into any girl's e...

CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

CHAPTER XIII-. The Price of Silence. I Hugh returned to the Carlton Ho tel at a quarter to five. He was a little surprised not to find Geraldine there; but he imagined that she might have taken Desdy to the Hippodrome or to Maskelyne's—she who had such little taste for all theatrical shows herself. Had she- done so, it would have been a new victory: for this ama zing child, who seemed able to bring anybody to his feet, and had already conquered naif the staff at the Carlton —while he was an eternal source of wonder to the matchless Joseph. Hugh was well aware of Geraldine's real affection for him, but he. began to think that never would he have her favor for Leila, but for the untoward circumstances of these later days. There are some women who can live a whole lifetime upon a volcano of profound emotions, and yet never let the world see so much as a wraith of smoke above the inscrutable mount. Geraldine was just such a woman. There were circumstances whereun der she would have give...
