Bulls and Blunders. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Bulls and Blunders. I Like the Irishman who saitl that 1 his ropo had only one end because the other had been cut away, Mr. John Burns said, "I should like to i throw the honourable member a life line, so that I might pluck him as a brand from the burning." It recoils the fnmous "hull " made by Sir William ITart-lJyke, the Unionist ex-Minister, who caused uproarious laughter in the Houso of Commons one day by remarking', i "The right honourable gentleman j has caught big fish in his time. He j has gone to the, top of the tree to find them." Alluding to an item of £2,000, 000 in the Army Estimates one year, a certain member described it as "a flea-bito in the ocean," while : another, advocating an in:rcaso in I the European troops employed in , India, remarked, "You may depend i upon it, sir, the pale lace of the British soldier is the backbone of tho Indian Army." An Irish member, speaking of sui cido, said, "The only way to stO;> it is to make it a capital offence, ] punishablo ...

A FORTUNE IN HOLSTEINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
A FORTUNE IN HOLSTEINS. A few years ago, T. W. Sprague, of Battle Creek, Mich., decided to in vest in a herd of registered Holstein Friesian cattle. With this end in view he went to New York and pur chased a yearling bull for £.120, and ten young cows,/'.yearling heifers, and heifer calves. A jear later he purchased four more y.oung cows and heifers of good breeding, making a foundation herd of 14 females and the yearling herd bull. The 15 head cost Mr. Sprague just a little less than .C300. T. W. Spragufc soon became well known among Mi chigan Holstein breeders- and his Wolverine stock farm, with well-kept herd of Holsteins, was often visited by buyers looking . for high-class cat tle. During the past three years Mr. Sprague has sold over £600 worth, of females and young bulls which paid over 20 per cent, interest on the £800 investment. Owing to the failing health, of Mrs. Sprague, Mr. Sprague was forced to sell out his stock farm and the Wol verine Holstein herd, nnd on 2nd April...

CHAPTER III. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
CHAPTER in. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. Dugdale had not changed his mind an iota. A dozen things—the exqui site white hands on which valuable rings glowed, the delicate features, the style of her whole attire—these and other evidences told him plainly this strange beauty belonged to the select upper circle of Russia, even that which is very near to the throne itself. The mystery of it all piqued him. He felt somehow as though he had a personal interest in her matters— that her enemies were also his foes in fact, that she was being shame fully treated by the powers that were in control of such affairs as banish ment. This was pretty quick work, and almost took his breath away when be came to reHcct upon its nature. He had prayed for a chance to feel | himself aroused from the "doldrums" j and behold, the opportunity had ap- j peared with a vengeance. Here he was bowling along the mountain road, heading for the next village or town, and seated beside the most fascina ting woman he had ever...

CHAPTER II. DUGDALE FORGETS THE BLUES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
CHAPTER II. IDUGDALE FORGETS THE BLUES. Of course, the wise reader has anti cipated just this thing, but Dugdale had not been granted the same privi lege and hints, so that he was fairly staggered. It breathed of romance on the spot —and he had just been seriously con sidering the wisdom of deserting the army of bachelors, too. He had seen some pretty faces in his day, this young-old disciple of 6ingle blessedness, but never one that had struck him as quite so arch and charming as the countenance upon which he now gazed so like a boor. And somehow he imagined he saw what might be a frown give way to a look of genuine pleasure. She ap peared pleased to find that the tram pling horses had brought him to the scene and not others—perhaps the mounted soldiers who waited there on the hillside above. Dugdale pulled himself together. He made no pretence of being a ladies' man, thougjh always at home In society. "Pardon mo, madam, you are In trouble. Hy surprise made me rude. Allow me to ass...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN OF THE CZAR, OR, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. CHAPTER I. THE TRAVELLER in THE TALEGA [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
(AIjL BIGHTS RESERVED.) «■ UNDER THE BAN #0F THE CZAR,® 0 R, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. 1 4y St. George Rathborne, Author at "Omar Kasaam," etc. CHAPTER I. THE TRAVELLER in THE TALEGA A novice might not have found much pleasure about the long jour ney in a Russian telega drawn by two horses under the control of a daring Don Cossack driver—a journey that had carried Owen Dugdale, a journalist, artist, and idler, over the vast steppes, with their feathery grasses, and now brought him amid the wild gorges of the southern moun tain border of the White Czar's vast . dominions. Dugdale had enough Irish blood in his veins to love more or less ex citement, andi his main purpose in visiting this domain, upon which a subject of the good Queen had sel dom set eyes, was to discover new' objects of interest for his brush and pen, as well as to amuse himself. A man with plenty of money &nd an artistic taste is very apt to grow weary of such ordinary things as lie in the beaten track ; and acc...
The Saveloy Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
The Saveloy Case. Win. Stredwick y. C. Coraino was the adjourned case by which the defendant sued under the Pure Foods Act was concluded yesterday at the local Courthouse. Mr. W. \V. Beaven P.M. adjudi cated, and Mr. T. T. Clarke ap peared for plaintitf and Mr. P. P King for defendant. Mr. Clarke said they proceeded under the regulation of 1908, and produced the Gazette. Mr. P. King said the case was unfinished in order to serve notice ' on Hutton as Sec. 33 would appear to bar the way. He now relied on Sec. -32, and it in effect said that if defendant had taken all reasonable precautions defendant should not be penalised. He quoted a case in which butter was the com modity. In this case the saveloys were sent up in a sealed tin froin Hutton's—a reputable firm. The saveloys were in a pickle, and they are fished out by a picker or tongs. P.M.—The opening must be on the top of the liquid. Mr» King produced the tin. On thisi occasion the inspector asked for 3 saveloys and cut the three...

The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Mail with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said : "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go innrk him well, For him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, Heads let no rude sottnd Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved bo well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise."

MOTOR-CAR WINDOW OPENER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
MOTOR-CAR WINDOW OPENER. The cumbrous method of raising antl lowering the windows of mo tor-cars and other carriages by means of a strap will soon be suporseded by a German invention. By the new device the inmate c> the carriage presses upwards or down- j wards a handle, and the window rises or falls accordingly. More over, the window can be raised or lowered to any required height, and will automatically stay Where it is placed. This ingenious device has been brought before the notice of motor-car body builders and its | practical 'use demonstrated by means 1 of a working model. j The haughty, imperious beauty j handed him back his ring. "Now that all is over between us," she said, "I suppose you wiU i buy a revolver and put an end to ; your wretched existence ?" j "Worse than that !" he hissed, be- j ing careful to introduce the neces- 1 sary tone—"far wor-s-se ! I shall steal a revolver, and I shall shoot your measly little poodle !" j A wild shriek burst from her lips, j She ...
