DO WE LIVE LONGER? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 23 April 1914

DO WE 'CIVE. LONGER? It is generally maintained that we live longer than the ancients did. But researches atnong the tombs of Ro man times in Italy and Spain are tar from proving this. There was certainly a larger infant mortality^ but the expectation of life between fifty and sixty in ancient Rome was equal to our own, and after sixty the Romans had the advantage. Soldiers, in particular, lived to an extreme old age, in some cases reach ing 100 years. The longevity of the Romans was tlue to a high infant mortality. Only the fit survive ' By taking great care of the young we have reduced thf mortality, 'but at the same time we have not added to the average length of life. This is not difficult to under stand, for if the weakly and the deli cate" survive childhood, tliey do not ai> a rule live to old age. A high rate of infant mortality means, in fact, a low -death-rate after sixty, and vice-versa. The ancient Roman had a less chance of living to twenty, but if he survived he had ...

THE DEADS CARE FOR THE LIVING SOU[?] A Strange Story With a Strange. Sequel. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 23 April 1914

THE DEADS CARE' ?OR THE | LIVING SOU iJ I A Strange Story With a Strange. Sequel. A strange ghost story, in which the principals are said to be people of the highest social position, is, according to the "Express," engaging the atten tion of London society. A Kensington vicar was leaving the church after choir practice when a lady stepped out of the aisle and ask ed him in agitated tones to come with her at once to an address near by. "A gentleman is dying there," she said. "He is extremely concerned aibout the state of his soul and anx ious to se you oefore he dies." The clergyman followed her to a waiting taxi-cab, and a short drive round the corner brought them to a mansion. The lady, who seemed to be extremely agitated, urged the vicar to hurry. He sprang out of the ca>b, rang the bell, and a butler appeared. "Does Mr. live here?" "Yes, sir." "I hear he is seriously ill and has sent for me." The butler seemed astonished al most beyond words. He expostulated that his master wa...

He is only twenty-four years ot j age, and the operations have all been j performed within the last ten years. He has had one leg, one hand, one eye, the appendix, and arm bones removed.

He had both arms, both legs, one ear, his nose, his appendix, one kidney, and a portion of his skull removed. He was In three railroad smash-ups, and then contracted cancer.

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T, MEADE, Author o£ "The Soul of Margaret i Rand," etc. . Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. .. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER IV. Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted to tell him . what she had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting her news, for if there were an up right, steadfast, high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might not like her having written to the hotel to invite Mr. Ivruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law yer to Sunnyside. In the afternoon a letter arrived from Ralph. He implored his mother to let him have £100 without, delay. "1 have got into a little trouble over bridge," he wrote, "and must pay it at once. You'll manage, won't you, mums, dear, for you never failed a fellow yet." (No, and never shan," thought the mother.) H...

But one man in the pit irrita ted his neighbors excessively by re fusing to take the performance in the proper spirit. Instead of weeping, he laughed. While others were mopping their eyes and endeavoring to stifle "I d-don't know what brought y-you li-here," she sobbed, with streaming eyes, and pressing her hand against her aching heart: "but if y-you don't like the p-play. you might 1-let other' p-people enjoy it!" ^ Plenty of youpg men who start out into the "World'never get any farther than the city.
