CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 22 August 1914
CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. Joshua Hethermgton sat, to all appearances, composed and quiet. In reality he was simply, wild with ap prehension. "The strongest piece of evidence against your nephew is that fact that a dagger, such as would have inflict ed the wound that killed the doctor, was in his possession at the time of the murder. It seems the housemaid at Mount House is engaged to the village constable, and when they were discussing the murder, she told him that Mr. Jack had a dagger in his room, and she, at her lover's re quest, handed it to him. Then of course, there were the threatening words he used. But personally I do not believe him guilty," he said. "You are rignt ; he is innocent. Dr. Fitzpatrick may have had enemies, bitter enemies, who had even greater reason to wish him out of the way than Jack had. You knew him in timately ; do you know of any such person ?" she asked, fixing her eyes keenly on him. "No, but it is possible he had an enemy, as you suggest. He had...

CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 22 August 1914
CHAPTER XIX. BROiUGHT BACK. "Qall Margaret Wedmore." As the name fell on his ears Josh Hetherington started and looked round in time to see her enter, and he was; struck afresh by, her loveli ness and grace, which was not mar red by the sad expression her face wore. As he looked he scarcely mar velled that the dead man had loved her, rather than his richly-dowered daughter. "Miss Wedmore, is it true that the dead man asked you to be his wife on the afternoon previous to his death, when he was on the eve of marriage with another lady ?" "It is quite true, and I thought he must have been out of his mind, or he would never have spoken such words. Indeed, when I heard that be had died a violent death, I came to the conclusion that he had commit ted suicide while out of his mind," she said, speaking in a clear, ' dis tinct tone. ■or:. The coroner shook his tread. "A man cannot stab himself in 'the j back. And now, Miss Wedmore, I: want you to tell us about this quar rel between your cous...

DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 29 August 1914
DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. I In locating a cowshed care should ' be taken to have a gentle slope from the shed in at least one direction af j fording good natural drainage to i both shed and yard. If the shed is al I ready built and poorly located, grad ' ing and draining will do much to remedy the evil. In most cases it . would take but a small amount of ' labour with a scraper when the | ground is in suitable condition to handle to give the surface of the I yard a slope from the shed sufficient to carry off the surplus water. Even if dirt has to be hauled in from out side the yard to accomplish this, it will not be expensive. Tile drainage alone will not be sufficient as the tramping of the cattle soon covers the surface, preventing the water I from passing down the tile.
