Despite his busy life as a barrister, journalist, private secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Governor of the Cape of Good Hope, and member of the London Library, Sir Alfred Milner still found time to dispense wisdom. The turn of the past century was labeled "The Age of Hurry," and big thinkers like Milner gave invaluable advice on everything from dieting to how gentlewomen should go about trout-fishing—and how ill health could result from the modern craze of bicycling. His articles are still readable and enjoyable today, and at times surprisingly relevant—even if his exhortation to "never drink beer or spirits" has somehow failed to catch on.
