Correspondence. [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
comspwiiEe. MYa do not. identify omrulves with tbo opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. Sir,—I was amused to read a note In your paper that foot-warmers,etc,, would be ai.- inducement for people to go to church. But I contend that all the foot-warmers in the world, would not in the slightest degree solve the problem. My last wish would be no; to injure my own old •Church or any other body of Christ ian people. I look to tbern for great work as tho'years go on. work get; ting'year by year more important and more effective. I can foresee 210 state 'of society in which there •will not he a place for churches and ministers and sacraments, and all ibt> other paraphernalia of inystic ■communion with the unseen pow ers, greater, higher, nobler than ourselves. But their value is dini -;£%■ jjushed,-their usefulness impaired, their prospects diaime&lt;), exactly in proportion as their honesty is under suspicion. I do not look with a...
CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
CHAPTER XV. During the short remainder of the night of Sheila's hall, Peter Bellalrs did not retire to rest. He was deadly weary, but his mind' was so full of agitation that sleep was impossible. He had done fairly, well in Paris, and had secured at the price of ten thou sand pounds the greater number of the diamonds which had been in the bracelet, but by no means all, for Le Fevre had sold some at a price which lie took care not to mention. Bel lairs, Holman, and young Mordecai felt that nothing more could ibe done, and the unhappy K.C. returned to his home stricken to the heart's core. He put the diamonds which he had secured at so vast a sum into bis cafe, intending to take them in the morn ing to Mordecai to rerify. He found himself tired and depressed In a scene of brilliant gaiety, and, what was worst of all, he knew that, owlug to his wife's theft, he w&f again a comparatively poor man. But Bellalrs thought very little dur tag the remnant of that short night either of...
GREATER THAN GOLD CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIV. The manBion was gay with the flowers of the season—roses, of course, mixed with innumerable tall white lilies, which were in the per fection of their bloom. The best flor ists, the best decorator* had been all day at Hansell House, and, under the directions of the Duchess o£ Tewkes bury, had'made »uch a marked change in its appearance that Sheila felt she would scarcely know it. By the Duchess's orders she wore her lovely presentation dress and the magnifi cent rope of well-known pearls. Mrs. Bellairs was garbed in a gown of pale grey velvet in the very latest style, and her husband's narrow chain of diamonds, with its glittering pen • darrt, .hung from her neck. Beyond his message to Sheila, no wo^d had ibeen heard as to Bellairs, and the Duchess felt Blightly annoyed at his absence on such an a...
EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD BOOKED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD BOOKED. The first thing that strikes the liberty-loving person when he settles down in Berlin, or even puts up at a boarding-house for a short stay, is the "Anmeldungspflicht," or duty of re porting oneself to the police. Before he has been in the house many hours he is presented with a printed form on which he is compelled to fill in all kinds of particulars about himself under penalty of a heavy fine and eventually imprisonment if he fails to do so, or if he writes down de tails which the police afterwards as certain to be untrue. First of all the newcomer has to write down his full name, the exact date of his birthday, the name of the place in which he was 'born, and the nature of his occupation. Then he must state what his religion is, and if he believes in none at all he must duly enter himself as an infidel. Fur ther, be must state what his nation ality is, and whether he is in posses sion of a passport to prove his iden tity. These particulars are ...
WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
| WOMAN'S WORLD. I ^ i " WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It is a strange but undeniable fact that most people hardly ever hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you will sup pose that you can't help hearing your self when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise tha; it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly 5top talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a grea*. start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a very great surprise to bear yourself mimicked. You are al most certain to exclaim, "Wiio is that meant for?" and other people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you—don't you re cognise it?" and then you rcallbe how deaf to your own voice you have been for many years You never see your own face ei ther, except in a photograph ,and that is why a photograph'is always some ...

LOCATION OF THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 20 June 1914
LOCATION OF THE ORCHARD. ! While many who claim to speak j with the voice of authority assert [ that an orchard should always be upon land which slopes in a' given (.irection, we have seen many a gooil orchard in which the slope was in other directions. A belt of wood or other windbreak may be sufficient protection for it even if it does blos som early. TFhat is of mora import ance is that it should be well drain ed. As an old orchardist once told' us, "trees will not stand it to have wet feet all the time any better than you and I would." We think he said apple trees should not be where the water wes within four feet of the surface, while pear trees might be set within three feet of the water level if the water was not stagnant, and quinces within one foot. Pears will do well in a clay soil, while apples and peaches will not unless it is thoroughly underdrained, and even then peach?*, will not do as well as on light sandy or gravelly soil. In [ setting an orchard avoid spots that a...
SPOKEN BY ADAM AND EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 27 June 1914
SPOKEN BY ADAM AND EVE. Few subjects lu.ve given rise to more [speculation then the language spoken by our iirst parents in the garden ot" Eden. The Jews claim that the Hebrew tongue was the earliest language, and spoken by Adam and Eve. The Arabs, Howeve •, dispute the point. Of all the languages, except the Hebrew, the Sy rian lias lmd the greatest number of advocates, especially among Eastern authors. ilauy maintain that the language spoken by Adam is lost. Goropius publisheu u work in 1850 to prove that Dutch was the language spoken in Paradise. Andre Kemp maintained that God spoke to Adam in Swedish, Adam an swered in Danish, and Eve spoke in French, while the Persians r.lso be lieve three languages were spoken in Paradise- Arabic, the most persua sive, by the serpent; Persian, the most poetic, by Adan. and Eve; and Turkish, the most threatening, by the Angel Gabriel

DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 27 June 1914
DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anyone who has not the nature of a cabbage is neurotic," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture on "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Society. He gave 110 definite advice as to what should be done with ner vous children, but he asked that they should be treated with sympathy, and that their parents should not put down all the children's troubles to some form of organic disease. He de scribed the night-terrors of nervous children as occurring between the years of three and eight. If the child suffers from slight indigestion, he he said, it is seldom terrified by pain, 'but by horrible faces. A stuffy bed room \xill make it dream of being strangled. Cold limbs often cause a child to get terrors of icebergs or ava anches, and lying in an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re sponses to sensations are quadrupled in its. dreams, and they bring on in tensified memories of past troubles only faintly connected with ...
