"A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914
,'A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." "I married you In order to love you in God and according to the need o£ my heart, and in order to have in tin? midst of the strange world a place for my heart, which all the world's bleak winds cannot chill, and where I may find the warmth of the homo fire, to which I eagerly betake myself when it Is stormy and cold without." Can you imagine whoso words ar-? these? Perhaps you might say they were written by some lovesick senti mentalist; but you would mistake. They are found in the "Love Letters of Prince Bismarck," which have just been published, and from their am ple pages you could cull a hundred similar passages. There are many different judgments of Prince Bis marck current in the world to-day, but there cannot 'be two opinions as to the purity and depth of his affec tion for his wife. Probably she was the greatest single force that ever entered his life. She does not seem to have been an intellectual or a brilliant woman, but she was clear-minded, sen...

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914
"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE.' Is it possible to provide the feeble minded with more 'brain until they are normal? Wild though the possi bility may seem to the lay mind, it ha.-, nevertheless, been seriously dis cussed at the Congress of Medicine in Paris. Furthermore, experiments in the science which is known as "or ganotherapy" have already been at tempted. This science really consists of treat ing diseased organs with medicines made from simils. organs. It is point ed out by medical experts that the building up or doctoring of one organ with extracts from a similar one was practised' 2000 years ago, although, of course, in a very crude fashion. It is 011 record that patients suffering from an alfe tion of any partitular part of their system were given the same part of an animal to eat, with the idea of repairing the local waste and dam age. Thus consumptives were order ed to eat sheep lungs, while for dys peptics was prescribe'! a diet in which the stomach of calves ranked as the chief ...

ALLOWANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 12 June 1914
ALLOWANCES. An excellent idea, and one that iB steadily growing In favor, is the CUB tom ot allowing quite young girls a fixed sum for their small current ex penses, permitting full liberty in th? expenditure, but requiring a strict ac counting In a business-like form at stated periods. , No better method could possibly be devised to teach tho true value of money and instil cor rect business habits; and practical financial ability will not como amisB, whatever the future lot may be, whe ther as a wife or a member of the maiden sisterhood.

WAS'HE BURIED ALIVE? The village of La Garde, In the Do partmeut of Arlege, France, became greatly agitated by persistent reports that a retired Toulhouse police olli- j cial named Carol, who died last month, , had been buried alive. The au thorities finally also became alarmed, and ordered an investigation, which established that the sexton of the graveyard whore the body was buried, a man named Delpech, while filling in the gravo, had been startled by tappings from the cofiln. He called a passer by, who also heard the noise. The family of the supposed dead man was then summoned, but, says Reutor, after waiting a long time without any repetition of the tapping the brother' in-law said that it was the sexton'a imagination, and that he was satis fied that Carol was dead. He ordered the grave to be filled up, which was done.
