THE POULTRY YARD. SEX PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
THE POULTRY YARD. SEX PRODUCTION. It is difficult to say how many hun dreds or even thousands of years we should have to go back to trace the first suggestion that in some way it was possible to foretell the sex of a &lt;new-laid egg, such, for instance, as by shape of shell or portion of air vessel, but right down to the now ex ploded modern sexopho^ne all have been proved absolutely fallacious. It is, however, quite possible that a preponderance of one sex over the other may .to a certain extent be in fluenced in the offspring by certain ways of mating and feeding, though such results are by no means abso lutely certain. Export breeders often find that age has an influence in this direction, e.g., an adult cock mated to pullets fre quently tends to a plethora of cock erels, and vice versa. A cockerel with hens may bring most pullets, but in this contention season often steps in, and early in the breeding time it will often be found that most males will come, and later on m...
FROM THE FIRING LINE. The Gallant Sergeant-Major. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
| FROM THE FIRING LINE. I " I The Gallant Sergeant-Major. It was in amazing circumstances that Sergeant-Major Ravan, 1st Herts Territorials, rescued an officer of the King's Royal Rifles. In a "brave charge by the Rifles, a certain section got caught in a concealed German trench, over which was barbed wire covered with earth. At the same time the Germans opened a heavy fire from machine-guns upon them, and also shelled them with petrol bombs. Four days later the Herts relieved them. The officer of the Rifles rescued by Ravan had been wounded in the an kles and had been lying there four days. He had been seen during the day, but, although it was courting death to endeavor to get to him, Ra van went out at night and, at great risk from flying bullets, brought him in without hurt to himself.

IN THE BLOOD. Story of a Young Man's Resolve, and How It Was Upset by the Goddess Chance. There was a little valley between us where a stream wound. The terraced gardens of the great house rose up from the farther bank, flanked by plan tations of noble trees. Sombre, mas ' sive, grey, stately, above it all on the crest, stood Foynes. I stood there—staring. Till six months before I had been Ambrose Flint, son of Ambrose Flint, Canadian settler. All my. life I'd known hardship and poverty and pri vation. My father died. His papers re vealed a secret. The name of Flint was not his. He was Ambrose Foynes, who, after a scandal with a servant maid in his father's service in the great house I looked on, left the coun try with her, married her, and had by her a son—myself. He was the Ambrose Foynes, eldest son of the late Sir Am brose Kelley Foynes, of Foynes, in the county of Hants, for whom detec tives sought, and the papers of the world advertised, whose death was &lt; pronounced...
CHAPTER II Is Mainly Astonishing. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
CHAPTER II Is Mainly Astonishing. In virtue of the facts that I was well known in Cromer, on friendly terms with, the local superintendent of police, and, what was more to the purpose, known to be a close friend of the Chief Constable of Norwich— also that l was a recognised writer of some authority upon problems of crime—Inspector Treeton, of the Nor folk Constabulary, greeted me affa bly when, after a. very hasty break fast, I called at the police station. Treeton was a thin, grey-haired man, usually very quiet and thought ful in manner, but this staggering af fair had. quite upset his normal cool ness, "I expect the detectives over from Norwich • in Lalf-an-hou%" he said, with a distinct trace of excitement in | his tones, as we stood in his bare lit tle office discussing the morning's discovery. "You being such a close friend of the Chief Constable, I don't suppose there'll be any objection whatever to your being present dur ing our investigations." All the same, his tone was so...
WHAT JOHN DID! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
WHAT JOHN DID! The current issue of the "Australian Journalist" publishes the following as "an example of the 'don't-give-a-hang' American style of journalism":— JOHN, IT SEEMS, DOFFED HIS COAT. And the Merry Truckers Went Whither the Police Know Not. with a Safe. (Special Despatch to New York; "Herald"). Fort Wayne, Ind., Wednesday.— What Peter Tenis, of this city, thinks of his brother John to-night • would cause a stir if repeated aboard a pri vate brig 'in the days of old. Peter's idea of nothing in particular is that same John, and those who have heard why have not given him any serious argument regarding his atttitude. This afternoon John Tenis was standing in front of his brother's cigar store when two men came down the stairs to the right with a safe. It was a heavy lift, and they said in a tenor concert to John:— "Say, sport, give us a lift." John took off his coat. That's what sticks in his brother's mind more than anything else. He actually took off his coat to help them ...

"Curious affair, isn't it?" "Very." "Now, you're a bit of a mystery monger, Vidal. What's your theory —eh?" i "I haven't one," I replied with a smile. "I knew the old hoy quite well by sight. Didn't you?" asked my friend, Major Keppell, as we stood gossiping together in the doorway of the Hotel de Paris, high up on the cliff oppo site the pier at Cromer. "Perfectly. His habit was to go down t"'.e slope yonder, to the pier each morning at ten, and to remain there till eleven," I said. "I used to watch him every morning. He went as regularly as tie clock, wet or fine." "A bit eccentric, I thought," re marked the Major, standing astride in his rough golfing clothes, and puff ing at his briar pipe. "Quite a char acter for a novel—eh?" and "he laughed. "You'll do a book about this stra...

Australia Day. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
" Anstralia Day " was celebrated throughout the Commonwealth yesterday (Friday) and splendid results were ob tained in Melbourne and other large | cities. Smaller places also did their part, innumerable committees working hard and unselfishly for the sick and wounded Australian soldiers. In Lin ton the effort took the form oE a jumble sale in front of the Shire Hall, a large ntimber of gifts of all kinds being ar rayed on stalls. During the afternoon and evening these found a ready sale, and it is expected that a substantial sura will be realised. A number of young girls, costumed as nurses, were busy sell ing flowers, postcards, " golliwogs," etc., which helped in no small decree to swell the funds. The ladies' committee worked hard to make the effort a success, and deserve all praise.

STOPPING A BANK-NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
STOPPING A BANK-NOTE. From time to time you read of bank notes being "stopped," and it is a popular impression that the Bank of England, having been notified not to pay a note that has gone astray, the bank has no choice but to refuse pay ment of that note if it should be pre sented. This is, however, quite an erroneous idea, for such a note is a promise by the bank to pay the bearer a certain sum on demand, a negotiable instrument transferable by mere de livery. The Bank of England has legally no power to refuse payment, and if it had such power it would be a serious thing, for a Bank of England note is legal tender to any amount, and unless it were in fact as good as money it would be impossible to carry on busi ness. Bu: what the bank will do is to de lay as long as possible the payment of the note, thereby giving the loser an opportunity of establishing, if he can, his title to it as against the person pre senting it, but if the bank should re fuse to pay a note on demand, and t...
Beautiful Photographs. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
Miftil Plotogreils. Richards and Co's display is slightly later than usual at this period of the year. Various causes have occasioned the delay, the princi pal one being ihe large number of orders dealt with by the firm from officers and men leaving for the front disturbing the usual, routine of business. However, the show of new; portraits opened to view yesterday amply compensates for the delay, for no finer ex hibit has previously been made at this studio; One of the most striking features will be found in the very fine exhibition of portraits of our gallant boys who have answered the call of the Empire, Messrs Richards and Co. introduced a special, new size for these, so that the photos could be enclosed in an ordinary pocket wallet. An extensive dis play of. these portraits are shown in the vistibule. A notable example of modern portraiture is shown in the two large studies forming the centre of the wiudpw display. A young girl, draped, is the subject. The re fined handling of ...

A temperance advocate once ex claimed: "Let us take our guns on our shoulders and plough the waste places till the good ship Temperance sails over the land!" A well-known preacher is credited with the declaration that "William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, never made a treaty with the Indians and never broke one."

Absent-Minded Vicar. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
Absent-Minded Vicar. The vicar of S is very patriotic and has done a great deal of recruit ing in his own and the adjoining par ishes. He is also very absent-mind ed. This was never so forcibly brought home to him as on the occa sion of the young squire's -wedding. The squire's regiment was leaving al most immediately for the Front, con sequently the wedding attracted more than ordinary interest, and the little church was crowded to its ut most capacity. The ceremony proceeded without a hitch, the momentous words had been spoken/by the vicar, and repeated by the bridegroom . . .

PRETTY WOMEN AND WAR. Secret Intrigues of the Courts of Europe. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
PRETTY WOMEN AND WAR. Secret Intrigues of the Courts of Europe. To the secret intrigues of women the "world owes many of its great wars. There are European statesmen still living who attribute to the actions of three noble dames the Franco-German War of 1870. Two of these ladies were Frenchwomen, the Countess de Cas tiglione and the Duchess de Litta, who enjoyed great power and fame in the days of the Tuileries. The other womak was the wonderful Baroness de Kaula, who was employed ] by the German Government to move 'in the high places of the French capi I tal. The Baroness was a most beauti ful, captivating, woman, and she re sided as long as her country thought | it necessary near the Presidential pal- ! ace at the Elysee in Paris. She set herself out deliberately to win the ad miration of the Minister of "War, General de Cissy, and ere long had the satisfaction of receiving him at midday breakfast once a week. So cleverly and thoroughly did the Baroness manipulate matters that the...
A DESERT LIGHTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 31 July 1915
A DESERT LIGHTHOUSE. Amidst the great arid -wastes of Arizona stands a lighthouse, which marks the position of a well—the only spot where water caai be found for fifty-three miles to the eastward and thirty miles in any other direc tion. The old Ehrenberg road, once the great highway through Arizona, passes close by, and at the same spot another important road branches off to a mining district further west. Many a wayfarer in this vast water less region has perished practically within sight of the well, the where abouts of which he was ignorant. It was a tragedy of this sort that led to the erection of the beacon. A German lad, dying from thirst, lay down in the last stages of exhaus tion. When night fell he noticod a light burning in the distance. It came from the wellkeeper's cabin, which, with a last grim effort, the lad managed to reach. This gave the wellkeeper an idea, and now every night a light flashes out of the only desert lighthouse in the world.
