CHAMPAGNE CORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 15 May 1914
CHAMPAGNE CORKS. "Of all corks, those used for bot tling champagne are the most expen sive," remarked a ".vino merchant. ' Only the very finest corkwood, that cmiing from Catalonia, is used. Some i lea of the value of this wood may bo t'.uncd from the following facts re jecting its growth: "Thirty years must elapse after the tree is planted before it is fit for the first stripi'in:; of tile bark, anu evin then the cork Is exceedingly coarse mid of no use -whatever. Afier eight years more a second cop v.ill arrive, but this again is of ].oor quality, and eight years more, making forty-six; years in all, must elapse before the grower of- the tree gets any bencfll from it. "Then the greatest care is neces ary in the manufacture of champagne cor!;s, for should they be defective in t!ze or shape the quality of the wint iy distinctly affected. For this reason they cannot be turned out by machine ery, like the ordinary cork, hut must be cut by hand. "After this they go through a pro cess o...

FORTY-EIGHT YARDS OF NAIL. The cutting of our Onger-nails is a matter on which most of us bestow very little time, although there is no douht that nicely-shaped nails make nil the difference in the world in the appearance of the hands. When we do cut them, however, we go through the operation without thought as to the remarkable provision which na ture makes for renewing these beauti ful adjuncts to our fingers, which look i-xceeilinsly hideous when accident has .i&lt;-|irIvod us of them. Our nails furnish us with a remark . lc idea of the importance of little ?ngs. I'hysicians say that they grow ;he rate of about one tliirty-secondth wrt of an inch a week, so that in eight v. ijeks they will have grown a quarter :if an inch.

Insult to Injury. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 15 May 1914
Insult to Injury. "That la what I call downright im pudence," said Mrs. Biggins. "What has occurred?" inquired her ..Jsband. "The neighbors who recently moved nest door are going to have company, so they sent in to borrow our drawing room rug. I let them have it, and In little while they came back and said they didn't think it was handsome enough to go with their furniture, and could I lend them the money to buy a new one." There are some people, wrote Mari on Crawford, who turn grey, but do not grow hoary; whose faces are fur rowed, but not wrinkled; wlicse hearts are sore wounded in many places, but are not dead.. There is a- ^outh thai bids defiance to age, and there is a kindness which laughs at the world's rough usage. These are they who have returned good for evil. . . . Whom the gods love die young, and they die .oung because they never grow old.

SOME OF MY DETESTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 15 May 1914
80ME OF MY DETESTATI0N8. I hava always believed that it is better to stimulate than to correct, to fortify rather than to punish, to help rather than to blame. If there is one attitude that I fear and hate more than another it la the attitude of the cynic. I believe with all my sou]' in ro mance; that is, in a certain high-heart ed, eager dealing with life. I think that one ought to expect to dnd things beautiful and people in teresting, not to take delight in detect ing meanness and failures. And there is yet another class ot temperament for which I have a deep detestation. I mean the assured, the positive, the Pharisaical temper, that believes itself to fce imprcgnably in tiie light and its opponents indubit ably in the wrong; the people who deal in axioms and certainties, who think that compromise is weak and original ity vulgar. In literature, In art, in life, I think that the only conclusions worth com ing to are one's own conclusions. If they march with the verdict of the conn...
UNIVERSITY OF HARD KNOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 15 May 1914
UNIVERSITY OF HARD KNOCK8. A great deal of mistaken sympathy la often expended upon those who start in life without social or monetary help. Those are most to he congrau lated who have at the beginning a rough tussle with circumstances. John Ruskin set It down as one of his calamities that in early life he "had nothing to endure." A petted and dandled eliildliood makes a weak and insipid man. No brawn of charac ter without compulsory erertlon. The men who sit strong in their so cial,, financial, and political elevations are those who 'did their own climbing. Misfortune is a rough nurse, .but she raises giants. Let our yonng people, instead of succumbing to the influences that would keep them back and down, take tliem as the parallel bars and dumb bells and weights of a gymnasium, by which they are to get muscle for the' strife. Consent not to beg your way to for tune, but achieve It.
JUDGES AND THEIR WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 15 May 1914
JUDGES AND THEIR WAYS. I 8omotlmos wonder (writes nn old Journalist) it judges have wives. And If judges liavo wives, how Ions do tliiy remain snne? Uecauso judges must be such helpless creaturoa in their own honiei. , Sometimes the reporter reports that the judpo asked in (N-art: *so is Connie llilchrist?" "What is tlie Der by?" "What is a 'bloke'?" and so on. I can't, set myself to tliinlc that a juilrre is a humbug. I put his ignorance and his questioning down to the fact that he won't accept anything except as spoken cvidcncu. He knows, but lie musln't know. He is an automatic schoolmaster. He can spell "cat," but he wants to know how you would spell it. If ho carried that kind of tiling home and asked his wife, "What is a shirt ?" when she told him she liafl laid out a clcan one on tlie bedside for him, or said' "What are socks?" when she snid, "You have pushed your big tOPS through them, and had -better change them in the morning,"®! can imagine the -poor woman shrieking in li...
