A Modern Solomon. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914

A Modern Solomon; Another good story is told of Mene lik, by which it would appear he had studied the judicial methods o£ King Solomon. Two Abyssinians were gathering fruit, one up a tree shaking the branch es, and the other below collecting the fruit as it fell. A branch snapped sud denly, and the man up the tree slipped and fell. He landed on his companion on the ground, breaking the unfortun ate man's neck, but himself escaping without fatal inuries. The family o£ the dead nuin demand ed blood-money, and when the acciden tal murderer replied that he had no money they demanded his life. This the man declined to part with, and the case went before the judges, finally working its way up to the supreme tri bunal of Menelik himself. The claimants by this time refused to accept blood money even if offered, and demanded their l'ul right of a life for a life. "Very well," said Menelik in deliver ing judgment, "you have undoubtedly the right to claim this man's life, but the law says that...

Before liim appeared for trial a tough youth charged with getting drunk and firing his revolver in a crowded street. "Twenty shillings and costs," said the judge. "But, your honor," interposed coun sel for the prisoner, "ray client did not hit anybody." "Why, you admit that he fired the gun?" "Yes; but lie fired it into the air," explained the lawyer.

A Boomerang Rebuke. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914

A Boomerang Rebuke. A certain careless student in a small college suffered from obesity, and it appears that even college professors do not love a fat man. One day, after a particularly unsuccessful recitation in mathematics, the instructor said scornfully: "Well, Jlr. Blank, you are better fed than taught." "That's right, Professor," said the youth, subsiding heavily into his chair, "you teach me-I feed myself."

II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914

II. The dusk had fallen some time, and had almost turned to decided dark ness, as Cranleigh's wife stood by the open studio window, waiting for Cur tis to come up to dinner. She hated having her meals alone, and since her husband's departure Dick and 6he usually dined together, either at home or out at a restaurant. They had been very pleasant, all those little tete-a-tete meals, and the little jaunts that had ibeen the order of things dur ing this past two monhs o*t Cranleigh's absence. And it was wonderful, now she came to think of it, how quickly the time had passed. Two days later her husband would be bade-dear, good-natured, easy-going old John. And Dick-to-morrow Dick would be gone. She wondered curiously, as she leaned her arms on the window-sill, watching the twinkling lights on the river, that turn it by night into a won derful enchanted land, full of mystery and fascination, just why he was go ing off to Algiers on this trip; and she realised with somewhat startling sudden...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914

III. Someone in the flat below was play ing a violin, exquisitely, tenderly, and the long-drawn notes of "Salut d'Am our" came floating up. "Does anything, even 'playing the game,' matter in a case like yours aud mine?" asked Curtis. i"I-'oh, 'I don't It now," she mur mured weakly. "I-I've always 'play ed the game,' Dick; and now-it's so madly difficult. He has been good to me." "Good!" echoed her companion, his voice tense with passion. "D'you think that's love? If he loved you, or you him, I might have gone away and said nothing. But in your heart of hearts you must know it's me you love. And to a woman like you, isn't -Jove-love, I say-the only thing that matters?" She shivered. "John," he went on-and his tone was contemptuous almost-"is a good sort. And"-for a second the best in him rose-"it's because he's been my pal that I've held back as long as this, but he's a good deal to blame himself, for all the world would say, my dear, that he has simply thrust matters in to my hands;...

IV. The woman shrank back with a cry of fear, and Dick Curtis flung a pos sessive arm about her shoulders-an action -which maddened the man con fronting them. "Take your vile hand from my wife, you ibrute!" he said violently. "Since you've turned up at this in opportune moment," said. Curtis slo\v\ ]y, "you,may as well learn the truth once and for ever. If you hadn't-been a blind fool-surely the simplest God ever allowed to live in this topsy turvy world-you would have known better than to go away aud leave me in charge, so to speak, of your wife. I tried to blind myself to things, 'but I was not quite strong enough; that's all.

Taking Him Down. To a certain Southern town, on le gal business, came.a most pompous young lawyer, who, notwithstanding his name was McNaught, liad an ex cellent opinion of himself. He found it necessary to talk with Squire Gard ner, an xinpolished justice, who had no good opinion of anything, and es pecially of anyone who had a good opinion or himself. The squire had never heard of his visitor till he call ed, and he was a poor hand at re membering names, but he was an ex pert in human measurements. The young lawyer proceeded promptly to say what he had to say, the squire listening, -but watching. Presently he thought it was time for him to say something. "Hold on, Mr. McCipher," he began. ".My name is McNaught," the lawyer stiffly corrected him. "Excuse me, excuse me," apologised the squire, and finished his remarks. It was not long before the squire again felt called upon to speak. "Well, now, Mr. McZero-he started in. "I said my name was McNaught," the lawyer interrupted sharply...
