Here he met another friend, a master mariner: After an Informal introduction his two compan lons talked of things in which hoetook no interest, and he joined In another conversation. Half-an-hour had elapsed when they informed him-profusely grateful for the introduction-that he had intro duced two brothers! They had been separated, not ,by quarrel, but by the estrhinging yeare. - The mariner, as a weakly boy whose I:le was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived mean counties away, by the sea. fle had never re visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met. Trile world doesn't judge a man by hl!s own clothes, but by his wife's.

For it was King Ludwig, th. brother of the i poor madman, who befriended Wagner in to.the' days of his; greatest poverty, I all whose patronage enabled him to produce Ills immortal works. King Ot to himself 'Is a friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," "Tannhauasar," and the other master pieces of his "Nlebelungenlied," are now popular throughout the world.

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XX. Suspense. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 26 March 1914
ýýrii3 oraý: MttNainor ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XX. Suspense. A veiled woman, finely developed, in black, stobd to the lett of the vicar, who gazed at her in mild as tonishment. Netta stared at her, won dering rather than alarmed. Lady Montamor's groat eyes- flashed scorn. She 'had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out of the shadow cast by a stone pillar. And Robert. drew hlimself up and looked at the spot in the veil where the eyes of the Internmeddler should be. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as well as of determination was expressed by every feature of his comely face. He recognised Gwen dolon-but also recognised that she bhad no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, on a par with the fact that she had hune;. ed him down, probably by detectives In her pay. Indignant, his first instinct was to protect Netta. "After that, the de luge," he thought, as, turning...

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 26 March 1914
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. - It is notew rthy that two murderer have, recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent. of capital sen tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain being ovel 50;per Gent. R'he newspapers conunmon ly~speak of these German criminals as vlctimis of the axe or block, withoul much 'discriminatlon. By the German law all:capital punslumoents must bc carried out by beheading, abut it is.lefl to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon'I. the gull latine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus slan. method is that, the victim sit tlng in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.
FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 26 March 1914
FORTUNES REFUSEU. It is said that when it became known that the letters of the greal lilsh leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, weere to be published, offers to pur chase them. were received from all over the world, and that one great newspaper proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque,.upon which she anmght inscrlbe i?er own price. The offer was refused. Robert Browning constantly refused ip' write for the magazines and re. vews. He, only' departed from his splf-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. in his later days, when Browning so. cJeties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices yere offered to him even Ifor a short Roem. He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck'-to' his text" ip his dying day. Bult- this:-determination to refuse mponey when it is offered is evidently not the attribute of the well-to-do oany, for a. laborer in Pennsylvania has just refused two fortunes amounting to £20,000, which ...

The ulcers got bigger and. bigger, aaid the constant pain made my existence a misery.' At night I- would toss about in fear ful agony, wishing for the end of of everything.
