LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
LOCAL AND GENEBAL. Mr W. T. Rowe, of Uaringlial Es tate, was waited on by a number of rate* payers of the West riding,. Shire of Grenville, on Tuesday, who presented a requisition numerously signed, asking him to become a candidate for the. seat rendered vacant by the retirement of Or Shepherd, who is not seeking re-election. Gr Kennedy, Messrs S. Woods, J. H. Morgan, and R. Wishart spoke in favor of the requisition, and Mr Rowe, in reply said that iu view of the large num ber of ratepayers who evidently wished him to have a seat at the council table, he would have pleasure in ^becoming a candidate for the position. Mr J. M. Kerr, who last week an nounced himself a candidate for the West riding seat in the Grenville Shire Council, has withdrawn iu favor of Mr W. T. Rowe, of Naringhal, as he feels that Mr Rowe, from his position in the riding, will be of more service to the ratepayers. The piano purchased by the Happy Valley Old Boys' and Girls' Association has been received and plac...
"EXCEPT ON STAMPS." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
"EXCEPT ON STAMPS." One of the most interesting mon archs in Europe at tlie present time is King Victor Emanuel of Italy. The King is extremely democratic, and it wds the remark of a -working man that first led him to be bo. For merly, he was very reserved, and was not often to be found mixing among his people. One day, however, he granted a private audience to a prom inent Socialist workman. His Ma jesty discussed many subjects with his guest, including the latter's work in a glass factory. At last, the King hinted that he might visit the factory himself one day, to which the workman, replied: "Your people have been a very long time without seeing your face, Sire—except on stamps." The King did not say anything at the time, but he thought the man's words over very carefully, and hence forth no Italians had cause for com plaint that His Majesty kept himself aloof from them in the seclusion of his palace.
DAIRYING. MILKING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
DAIRYING. MILKING MACHINES. While milking machines have prob ably .come to stay, yet it is apparent that the future of tne whole dairy industry is involved either for good or bad by their use.. Clean hand-milk ing is, of course, the ideal method, but there is no reason whatever why ma chines should not turn out an equally pure article. A dirty hand-milker is possibly preferable to a machine run Dy dirty people, but as, owing to1'labor, a large herd must necessarily in most cases be milked by machines, it is niost important in a paper like this that attention ?be directed to the ur gent necessity' which exists for the strictest cleanliness in everything con nected with, their use. I may say at once (writes a man of experience) that 1 blame makers of milking machines, and the mechanics who instal their machines, to some extent. In many cases important parts, such as vacuum tanks, are plac ed in odd corners, long lengths of pip ing are put up, both as releaser pipes and vacuum pipes, w...
AMERICA AND THE BRITISH EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
AMERICA AND THE BRITISH EMPIRE. A striking article on the attitude of the people of the United States to wards the other English-speaking na-_ tions is contributed by R. M. John ston to the "Century," under the title "Arms and the Race":— "The world cares far less than it did twenty-five or even ten years ago about what the terms empire, monar chy, republic, federation may be held to imply; but it cares more than ever it did about the economic conditions affecting the ordinary citizen under wha-tever form of government he may be living. . . It is along such lines as these that the advent of the Amer ican fleet into the Pacific should bring us Closer to the other English speaking states, and lay the founda tions ot a new and greater empire. "We surely have outgrown any. jealousy, any dislike, with which we formerly looked on the British flag. We surely have become too great to continue the country attorney poli cies that have too often done duty for statesmanship in the conduct of ou...
CHAPTER VI. Mystery Inexplicable. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
CHAPTER VI. Mystery Inexplicable. Tiie town of Cromer was agog, when, next day, the coroner held his [ inquiry. The afternoon was warm, and the little room usually used as the police court was packed to suffocation. The jury—the foreman of which was a , stout local ' butcher—having viewed the body, the inquest was for mally opened, and Mrs. Dean, the first witness, identified the remains as those of her visitor, Mr. Edward Craig. _ This, the first intimation to the pub lic that Mr. Gregory was not .dead after all, caused the greatest sensa tion. In answer to the coroner, Mrs. Dean explained how, with his uncle, old Mr. Gregory, Craig had taken apart ments with' her. She had always found him a quiet, well-conducted young gentleman. "Was he quite idle?" asked the grave-faced. coroner. "No. . Not exactly, sir," replied the witness, looking around the closely packed room. "He used to do a good deal of writing for his uncle, more especially after the young man, Mr. Gregory's private secr...
Naughty! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
Naughty! A certain blue-blooded family, in whose household there had been something in the way of a strike, were a short time ago perturbed to receive an intimation, at very short notice, that they were to receive a visit from some distinguished people whose acquaintance they had long sought. With great pluckiness, two of the three pretty daughters of the house turned to and cooked the luncheon, and the third, disguised in a cap and apron, posed as parlor-maidr Weeks after, at a, function in town, both families, met, and the head of the distinguished branch expressed to the third sister his regret that she had not been at home on the oc casion of his visit. "Ah! ibut I was at home," the little rogue admitted. "It was I who smacked your face when you tried to kiss me behind the hall door!" The National Society for the Pre vention of Cruelty to Children has fifty-six of its inspectors serving with the colors. We know, of course, that some of our new recruits are very young, hut we- re...
FARMING IN SIBERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
FARMING IN SIBERIA. We have inherited from the tradi tions of the past the idea that Siberia is a country with a not very fruitful soil. Yet in the last few years very decided advances in farming have been made there, as a result of the efforts of the Russian Government to arouse the native peasants and set tlers to a-, more intensive cultivation of the ground. In the western sec tion of the country, so the German journal "Prometheus" tells us, large associations of farmers have been or ganised for the export of their pro ducts. In 1912 butter to the value of 7,000,000 roubles (a rouble is about 51 cents) was exported. In 1913 this amount had doubled, for in this year butter to the value of 14,500,000 rou bles was .sold to Germany, Austria Hungary and England. In 1912 ex periments were made in the manufac ture of English Cheddar cheese. After several failures the cheese, which is very popular in Great Britain, was so successfully imitated that in 1913 England imported 65 tons of Sib...

"I see it /"was taken in London. We ought to have no great difficulty in discovering the original —'eh, Treeton—if we find it neces sary?" - I smiled to. myself, for well I knew that the police would experience con siderable difficulty in ascertaining the identity ■ of the original of that picture. "Are you quite cure, Mrs. Dean, that it was the same lady who came to visit Mr. Gregory?" I asked the landlady. "Quite positive, sir. That funny little pendant she is wearing in the photograph, she was wearing when she came to see trie old gentleman— a funny littie green stone thing shaped like one of them heathen idols." 1 knew to what she referred—the small green figure of Maat, the God dess of Truth—an ancient amulet I had found while prying about in the ruins of a temple on the lef...

IN THE FIRING LINE. The Snipers' Corner. Men From Wigan. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 14 August 1915
IN THE FIRING LINE, "i The Snipers' Corner. Men From Wigan. By G. Valentine Williams. The moon gleaming fitfully througn a misty wreath had once looked down upon a peaceful Flemish hamlet stand ing on the scene of desolation through which our trench-line now threaded its way. A great slab of ancient red brick masonry, the last remnant of some rambling barn, stood up black against the sky-line, shelter against the unseen eyes that watched us day and night from the long, low line of breastworks a hundred and fifty yards away.' Liike the skeleton of some prehis toric monster, the blackened frame work of a high roof thrust itself put against the moon from a dark mass of ruins. All around the sombre wrecks of cottages seemed to be keeping vigil over the dead hamlet. The rats , scur ried fearlessly about the black and stagnant moat in which the red-tiled roofs and stately poplars of the farm had once mirrored themselves. Now the roofs, had been blown away, the walls battered, down, the tr...

Just in Time. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
Just in Time. "Bow-wow!" growled the dog. "Chv-ow!" howled the butcher's boy. . There was a scramble and a scuf fle. But human wit was not equal to canine grit, and in a trice the butch er's boy was pinned against a wall. "Help!" he cried. Help came. It came in the bulky shape of the dog's owner, who hur ried out of her house to the scene of the battle. "Naughty little Towser! Down, down!" she exclaimed. ":I do hope he hasn't bitten you." "No; I've kept him off by giving him your steak," replied the lad, tear fully; "but you're just in time to save the suet!"
