SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS IN THE DARK. The death has juat tsken placo at Stockholm o£ Mita Christinu Wltlund, an eccentric and wealthy woman.

Miss Witluud, it is said, nearly lolt her reason, from the effects of the shock, and when she linaiiy recovered made a solemn vow never to look upon treacherous man again. Her parents being dead, she had sole control of her own affairs, and she shut herself up in the house, where she remained for the whole of her life without ever going out. For seventy-five years she saw no other human being tjian her servant girls. Living as one dead in the midst of the bustle of modern civilisation, she had never seen trains, steamships, tramway cars, taxlcabs, airahipa, or aeroplanes. Even...

TYPEWRITING MUSICAL SCORES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
TYPEWRITING MUSICAL SCORES. The typewriting of musical scores is now made possible by a machine that has appeared on the French mar ket. The same machine may be used tor ordinary typewriting in several languages, the letters and numerals, and the musical characters or signs uemg carried on small drums. The drum lor writing music contains eighty-tour signs which, singly or in combination, produce all the charac ters necessary to write a complete score within a range of sts and a hall octaves. The treble or violin clef, for instance, is written by four operations, the bass clef in three, etc., even the staff Itself being written 011 the machine.

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to Mr. Gilbert, author 01 "Fortunes for Farmers." spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do tho work o£ ten men, and be worth a hundred. If this bo the typo of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere—only on better soils can tU&lt;sy succeed."

correspiiep. (We do not identify naraulvea with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. Sir, —I notice " Only a Philistine'* does not agree with me. He prac tically states that a preacher's object should be to appeal to the best in man. That is right. But why are the pews empty? Is not that tha poiui ? It is too thin for "Only a Philistine " to say that the churches have lost their influence because oE amusementand as far as his state went goes about the present officer* of the Salvation Army patting hio foot down on it the result is reflect ed in the fact that the Army is lan guishing at Beriinga. The corps is not imbued with the spirit the lat® General Booth endeavored to foster. Too much ctiurchauity will wreck the Army's objective. I believe ia the babbath D*y beiug kept holy in the truest since of the word; but on any other day I fail to see any harm in young people tnjoying them selves by singing "A bunting we will go " to tue ...
VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
V!M OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at tho work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way ho pushes that work. One day on and two days oil point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Seme men show by their very faceB that they love their work and aro bound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became chpked, and, with a view of blowing it clear/a number of iron drums full of nltro-glycerine were brought down by rail froffi Derbend, a.ul deposited over-night in a large shed, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment, a Greek named Darios, opened one of the drums for some reason best known to himnelf, and "decanted" a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin glass used for mixing Tod ka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterward* there entered a workman named Borko vitcli, who. was famous for the bois terous hilarity o£ his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh ter. The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of sten toria...

Sheila Danvers' gay seuscn did not end a day too soon. The weather was very sultry, and the girl's pretty rounded cheeks, never highly colored, became paler and paler. She longed for the country; she piii9d to see Dearma again, and, above all, she wanted to be in the hour'y and daily presence of Shainus O'Doyle. By IBellairs' request, his wife told Slieila nothing of her intended visit to Melbourne, and the girl iiaiurally supp sed C at Aunt Margaret was. go JnSr?0ria !*10rt time to Sunnyside un til Uncle Peter was able to take his ..holiday.

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When wo have a special work to do -we first "clear the decks for action." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a largo undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of smail appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the store, to show a new lino of. goods, clears his counter of everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time coi«nt, needs to be relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which are on ail sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and clea...

CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
CYCLING. There is a tendency towards special refinement in car equipment, main ly designed to save the owner-driver time and labour. We have self starters, self-inflators, and electric light *ets, all of which increase the price of production, and consequent i ly the retail price, and also add seiiously to the weight, thus increas [ ing tyre wear, petrol consumption, and the wear and tear of the car generally. No doubt in the case of those who are generously endowe'd with this wotlvl's goods these luxu ries are advisable ; but in the case of the man to whom economy is of importance, they might easily be dispensed with. There is one re finement, however, that all motor ists are looking forward to, and would be willing to pay for, and that' is the automatic change speed gear. Comparatively few motorists change gear perfectly ; practically all beginners do damage before they have learned the art. It is always more or less a matter of anxiety 'when touring in hil'y districts, for to bnn...
