THE STORY OF A COFFIN. The PariB correspondents are tell ing the story of what happened to a magnificent coffin which a. widow named .Mine. Lesserde had made to measure for her thirty years ago. It was in Tarnished oak, with ail Ycr handles and silver fittings, lined with lead, with a covering of blue satin over the head. Pinned to the bluo satin were crosses, images and chaplets.

Then she died, at the age of eighty three. A municipal inspector was called in, Jor the old lady had no rela tives to make ararngemonts for her funeral. The inspector examined the coffin carefully. It was of the regulation size, and bore the requisite Beal o£ the police commissary. All the same, there was something wrong.

KELLEWAY'S OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
KELLEWAY'S OPERATION When Kelleway first came to Kirta pur lie was as raw as they make them. Two years with a healthy regiment and six months o£ general duty at one of the large Presidency hospitals was not lilcely to teach hitu much ahout the country ho was to spend his lifo in. But, like the rest of us, he suffered from the delusion that he knew it inside and out. To him the native mind was as an open book with the springs and motives of its actions re corded in the clearest print. Tha', at any rate, was his idea. In this he was not singular. I lrnve suffered from . the same disease myself, and know the ] symptoms. It is the fixed idea of the Indian official, and lie does not even hold a monopoly of it. American tour ists, travelling members of Parliament, reporters, judges, merchant princes, policemen, and, in fact, any and every European who visits these shores car ries within himself the knowledge that he and he alone properly understands the workings of the Eastern mind.

JOHN LEE'S DREAM. Sentenced to death for the murder of Emma Keyse, lady-in-waiting to the lato Queen Victoria, at Babbicombe, near Torquay, John Lee was brought out for execution in Exeter Gaol on February 25, 1885. Overnight Lee had dreamt that three attempts would be made to carry out the sentence, but that all three would prove unsuccess ful, and his life be preserYed. He re vealed this to Warder Bennett, who reported the circumstance to the go vernor of the prison. All possible pre caution was taken; but, nevertheless, Lee escaped the gallows. Everything having been made ready, Lee stood on the trap of the gallows, which had just recently been erected. The signal was given, and Berry, the executioner, pulled the lever—but the trap refused to fall! The faces of all present expressed be wilderment. Berry gave the lever an other feverish pull, and the warders on either side stamped upon the trap; but it would not move. Lee was then marched off, with the cap still over his face, and...

WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. If neither husband nor wife has married for love, tout merely for mon ey, or any other mundane motive. II meals are ill-cooked and badly served. if two young people rush into matri mony, they take upon themselves all the burden of married life when too young to realise the responsibility of it If the income, though well managed and made the most of, cannot cover the expenditure. If the husband be a faddy, fidgetty man, perpetually prying into house hold matters, and if he thinks he knows more about them than anybody else. If both parties are absolutely re solved to see only the worst side of each other's character.

If, when dark_ days come, husband and wife forget 'they took each other for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer. If tho wife is totally ignorant of even tho rudiments of domestic econ omy, and thinks more of her dress t...

Solemn Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince me of one thing." "What's that?" "That there are mighty few days in the year on which a man does any thing really worth recording." Friendship can sometimes show its strength as much by the readiness with which it accepts benefits as :by the freedom with which it gives them. It proves by this its confidence in the love of the other side. Life, upon the -whole, is much more pleas.arable than painful, otherwise •we should not feel pain so impatient ly when it comes.
