THE ANT PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
THE ANT PEST. A writer in the "Farmers' Gazette" vouches for the efficacy of castor oil as an ant scarer. He says:-"Here is an absolute and simple preventive against the incursion of ants into safes and cupboards which is guaran teed to give immunity from ant plngue, and lias never been known to fail:-Take a strip of ordinary tape, say, an inch wide, and, after smearing with castor oil, tie neatly around the legs of safes, tables, etc., where ants are troublesome, and an ant will never be seen to cross the tape, which must be placed two or three inches from the floor, and the oil renewed occasionally, say, very month or even at longer intervals of two or three months, care being taken to prevent the tape becoming coated with. dust. Ordinary prepared or crude castor oil is all that is needed. No other kind of oil must be applied to the tapes." "What a strong, shrill voice Miss Mellow has." "Yes. I would advise her to devote herself to Christmas carols." "Why?" "Because they are only ...
THE WATCH AS A COMPASS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
THE WATCH AS A COMPASS. It may not be generally known that n watch makes an excellent compass Hold _ the watch with the hour hand pointing to the sun; midway between the hour hand and the twelve is due south, and of course a line drawn dia metrically across the watch from this points due north. For example, when it is three o'clock, and the hour hand is pointed at the sun, the line due south and north runs across the watch from one-thirty to seven-thirty, one-thirty being to the south and seven-thirty being to the north
THE LOVE THAT COUNTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
' THE LOVE THAT COUNTS. Whatever differences of opinion there may be about the practical value of teachings of the great Rus sian, Leo Tolstoy, no one can ques tion the noble common sense of these words, which Monsieur Roraain. Rol Jand heard him say and has recorded in his life of Tolstoy: "The greatest modern sin is the abstract love of humanity, impersonal love of those who are-somewhere out of sight. "To love those we do not know, those whom we shall never meet, is so easy a thing. There is no need to sacrifice anything; and at the same time we are so pleased with ourselves. The conscience is fooled. ' "No. We must iove our neighbors -those we live with and who are in i our way and embarrass us."
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XIII). THE DOWNFALL OF ABSOLUTISM [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GA' (No. XIII). THE DOWNFALL OF ABSOLUTISM This vast war, absorbing all the thought, il' not all the energies, of mankind, cannot fail to bring about radical changes in the structure of society. What is inherently weak, or rotten with tho decay of ages, must pass away, and only what is good and strong and true cau hope to sur vive the ordeal by fire. In tho Rus sian Revolution we have the first fruits of the psyschological influ ences at work, unseen and unheard, but much more powerful and effective in results than the mammoth can nons which roar out on tho field of battle. For generations the Russians have worked for a. free form of gov ernment suitable to the forward push anil striving of the'inational character, but it has remained, for the Great War to make them almost a free gift of it. Absolutism clung to its power up to the last ditch, and this was what real ly accomplished its final destruction. Out of the revolutionary movements which followed upon the d...
CARPENTER'S LOVEMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
CARPENTER'S LOVEMAKING. I "It is 'plane' that I Jove you," he ? began. "Is that on the 'level'?" she asked, j I "Haven't I always been on the' .'square' with yon?" he urged. j | "But you have many 'vices,'" she , remonstrated.t j ' "Not a 'bit''of it," he asserted. I "What made you 'brace' up?" she! | queried, coquettishly. f "The fact that I 'saw' you," he re plied, with a bow. "I ought to 'hammer' you for that." she answered, saucily. "Come and sit by me on the , 'bench,' " ho urged. | "Suppose the others, should 'file' in?" she murmured. I "You shouldn't let your arms 'com | pass' me," she continued. "I know a preacher who is a good I 'joiner,' " he suggested. ? "Promise not to 'chisel' him out of his fee," she requested. "That wouldn't 'augur' well for us,'' he answered. "Shall I wear the 'blue print'?" she asked, as they started for the licence.

WHEN AUTHORS WRITE BEST. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
WHEN AUTHORS WRITE BEST. The time when ail author may do his best work is a much-disputed question and an interesting, one. It depends, of course, largely upon the moods and temperament of the in dividual, but perhaps more largely still upon liis habits. The common belief of many, authors, however, has been that their best work is done at night. Longfellow frequently worked until two or three o'clock in the morning. In the quiet hours of the night, when all the world about him lay asleep, ho could better concentrate his ideas and guide his thoughts more exactly as he wished. Mrs. Olipliant stated that it wns her custom for many years to write until two o'clock in the morning, and Southey always said that he worked best by candle-light. Quite the opposite was true with Thackeray, for he always did his best work, he said, before ten o'clock in the morning. But Thackeray's greatest ideas, like those of Emerson, were conceived dining the night. The story of his conception of "Vanity Fai...
Angler or Schoolmaster? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
Angler or Schoolmaster? Dr. John Kerr, who has just died at the age of eighty-six, had many amus ing stories to tell of his experiences during thirty years as inspector of Scottish schools. Of the queer specimens he came across in his early days a good exam ale was a hale old man in a Suther land village who had held a position as master for forty years, and for twenty had not had a scholar. His scholars had simply left him, he ex plained to Dr. Kerr, who was sent to mate inquiries, hut a little cross-ex amination revealed the true cause he was an ardent fisherman, and "I did fush too much," he admitted. "When the river wud he in guid trim I wild often be giving the boys a holi day or twa. Oh, yes, I did fush too much, that's the God's truth." One of the greatest improvements Dr. Kerr noted in the educational sys tem in his time was in regard to the teaching of infants. In a "damo's school" in the old days he heard a little girl stumble over the proper names in reading from the Old ...
WHAT SOLDIERS MAY AND MAY NOT DO. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
WHAT SOLDIERS MAY AND MAY NOT DO. I Imitating the bugle-calls ot tlie enemy is quite legitimate; so is the wearing of their uniform, . with one reservation. A soldier may not fire on the enemy while so attired. But i he may advance or retreat, build bridges, and perform any other mili tary operation short of actual fighting, using the uniform as a means of de ception. A soldier may spy as much as he likes. If he worms his way into the enemy's lines he is only doing his duty and. if captured there, may not be punished beyond being taken an or dinary prisoner, provided he is wear ing uniform. If he is in any kind of disguise he may be shot. In the course of his spying he may kill as many of the enemy as he can. When he approaches the sentries he 1 may stab them in the dark, or use nny trick to throw them off their guard except one. He may not say "friend" if the sentry challenges him (unless, of course, he intends to surrender). Similarly, if suddenly attacked, he may not use any word...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 April 1917
CHAPTER II. The audience at the Harlequin was a large one. Other theatres mig'.it ' complain of bad business and All their stalls with "dead heads," but "House Full" was a nightly legend at the Har lequin. This evening was no exception, though the piece had had a long run.> It was a modern problem play: "A Sinner Who Was Loved." Cicely, as a woman with a past, played the title role. To herself she scarcely seemed to be repeating the words at all; she' hardly knew what she was doing; but ( to the audience she had never been j more fascinating. Her trouble had only lent a deeper softness to her eyes, a new note of pathos to her beau tiful voice. I Stephen Elstree sat In the front: row of the stalls. He was a familiar figure to the Harlequin playgoers, who! took the liveliest interest in Cicely's; romance, and regarded the pretty ac-i tress and her tall, broad-shouldered lover with kindly eyes. All the world loves a lover, and El stree was obviously very much in love. They knew so m...

' * "Why should I."alter my,' decision? Your brother is a forger and a thief. Why should he not suffer the penalty of his crime?", . Alaric Bearmain spoke slowly and forcefully. His tone was cold and in cisive. There was a bitter sneer in the glance of his light eyes, in the curve of his ; well-cut mouth. Owner of a racing' stud which had supplied the winner of the Derby, and the winner of the Oaks in the same year, editor of one of the most popu lar of the morning papers, Alaric Bearmain was one of the best-known personalities about' town. Barely middle-aged, he had acquired a unique position in the eyes of the Brit ish public. As a sportsman he was the idol of the man in the street, his paper could be relied on to provide the earliest and most exclusive rac ing information; while as a dramatic critic, his experienc...
