A HUGE PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 29 May 1914

A HUGE PROFIT. Sir James Yoxall tells, In his now book about collecting, another story of a collector's handsome profit "A bookseller purchased for £200 the MS. of one of Dickens' best works. For a long time that interesting manu script had lain neglected. I am told that it had been left on tho mantel piece of an empty house formerly in habited by a person connected with Charles Dickens in business. The bookseller tried to sell it for £500, and failed; £100, and failed; £300, and failed. "A few years later, having to meet a sudden demand for cash, he parted with the MS. for tho sum ho gave for it, £200. The purchaser at that price kept the MS. for some years, un til ono morning a bookseller, tho agent of a now famous but at that time unknown collector of rarities, came to tho owner of the MS. and of fered to buy it. '"My price is £2000,' said the owner. A cheque was written on the spot."

The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 29 May 1914

The Difference. "If you \vi$h to distinguish between the death of a barber and the death of a sculptor, how would you do It?" aMtcri Jack Mcrrilcss. "I don't know. Perhaps you will en lighten me," said his pal, Bob Synu» slick. "Well, to put it concisely. I should sum it up like this. The barber curls up and dves, while the sculptor makes faces and busts." A lively Irishman was once invited to a large dinner party in Dublin iu the hope that he would amuse and di vert his host's guests. But from the beginning to the end of the dinner he preserved a solemn and serious face. The host thought this very strange. "Why, old fellow," he remarked, "I don't believe the -biggest fool in Ire land could make you laugh to-night." "Try," -was the wit's cutting rejoin der.

GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 29 May 1914

GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American currency is printed with green backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency it has been the constant study o£ banlc-note engravers to get up some plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly succeeded till as lute as 1S57, when a man named Stacy J. Edson invented a lcind of green ink, which he patent ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-pliotograpliic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by counterfei ters to get a complete facsimile of the bills. . As it Is a secret known only to the American Bank Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if the composition of the ink wis known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.

THE END OF HIS TETHER [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 29 May 1914

THE END OF HIS TETHER By IAN GROSVENOIl. A Failure! . The reflection was tor from being a pleasant one to Roderick Massing liam. As a matter of fact, it came near to irritating him into a complete ioss of temper, as, lounging in the seat of a deck chair, he -watched the blue ontlir.es of Table Mountain fade away on the horizon. "Two years wasted," he muttered viciously out from between his teeth. "T:.o years all but a month, it's the first time in my life I've been so com pletely up against i\ rock." "frankly, i luul expected better luck at. your hands. When 1 told you the nature of the task confronting you 1 liad excellent hopes of your succcss. Yon have helped tltn Yard on so many occasions and so brilliantly, that I believed you would have won through when so much depended on it." Massingham flung his cigarette im patiently over the side of the liner. Unconsciously, he had uttered his thoughts aloud. As a result, he had been more than a little surprised on hearing the quietly spo...

At the Fire Station. He was undeniably from far beyoml the suburbs, and as he was walking along a City street ho stopped in front cf the fire-engine house and looked in. "Have many (Ires in town?" he asked. "Yes, we have them pretty often," replied the fireman. "Ever try to see how quick you can liitch-up?" "Oh, yes." At that moment an alarm came in. At the first stroke of the gong the men rushed to their posts, the doors of the stalls opened, and within a few seconds men, horses, and engine were speeding down the street. The young man watched the pro ceedings with admiration. "Well!" he exclaimed, when speech returned. "There ain't many places where they'd go to all that trouble to show a stranger what they can do."

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 29 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder the insides of new gloves to make them easier to slip on, and also, in the case of colored kid cncs, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler eggs are the quicker they will froth when whipped, so they should be beaten hi a cool place. A pinch of salt always cools and fresh ens them. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. If bright saucepans and kettles have to be used over a smoky fire, smearing a little grease over the bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash ed after use in hot water, the pan will be as bright as ever. When usiug dripping for making a cake, add a few drops of essence of lemon or the juice of a lemon, and it will be found that this wi.« not oniy remove the fatty flavor which cakes so often have when made with drip ping-especially mutton - but will ;very greatly improve the flavo...

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 29 May 1914

THE OLFACTORY NERVE OF INSECTS. A great number of facta of tho lifo o.' insects can hardly bo explained ex cepting by admitting a particularly powerful olfactory sense in these ani mals. The examples are numerous; if in an ant-hill, an ant of the «amo species as those that inhabit it, but belonging to another swarm, tries to penetrate, it will immediately be ex pelled. Sometimes the hypothesis has been supposed of a sort of lan guage allowing each individual to make itself known, but deafness is general in tho class of insects, and ants in particular are absolutely deaf. i?c then there only remains tho odor special to each swarm which appears to constitute a mode of identification. In the same way, when the corpse of i\ small mainmiferous animal is be coming decomposed in a field, a legion of sylphs and necrophors, strangers :o the immediate neighborhood, com ing sometimes from a distance of several kilometres, arrive to lay their eggs there, guided, it would seem, merely by their s...
