TOOK HIS EMPLOYER'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 30 March 1914

TOOK HIS EMPLOYER'S ADVICE. The proprietor of one of the prin cipal firms in the city had remarked that his head clerk, for whom he had a real liking, had for some reason fall en into a great melancholy, and though he tried his best, he could not find out what was the matter with the young man. One day at last the sufferer owned that he was in love. "Well, marry her," said the chief. "Oh, but," here the young man near ly broke down, "she belongs to one of the best families in the town.—the par ents will never consent." "Pooh! your position is good, your name honorable; they won't refuse. X will demand the girl for you. Does she love you?" "Yes, but it's no use; her parents won't listen." "Well, then, elope with her. • Do, I know the girl?" "Yes. -sShe will he at your ball next Tuesday; awfully pretty." "Perfect! Now, listen to me," said the employer. "Leave the ball quietly with her.

THE CAT'S WHISKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 30 March 1914

THE CAT'S WHISKERS. Those sensitive organs, the cat's whiskers, are a relic o£ jungle days. It is perhaps not generally known that a cat's power of discernment, especially at night, is due almost as much to his whiskers as to his eyes. To anyone who goes to a menagerie and locks at the giant cats of the forest—the lion and his like—the purpose of these vi. . brassae, as science names the hairs which project from the muzzle and from above the eyes, is evident enough. They are delicate organs of touch, wonderful mechanisms of warning. Each one grows from a follicle or gland, nerved to exquisite sensibility. Its slightest contact with an obstacle is distinctly felt by the animal, though the hair itself is tongli and insensible. These exaggerated whiskers on the t'ftwj /uvjeiit ti> triicM at tio or tho animal so far that from point to point they stretch to just the width of his body.

The read er of this fine monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee of great excellence. Jus tus Miles Forman, Mrs. Baillie Rey nolds, Warwick Deeping, I. A. R.

Besides the above writers H. de Vere Stac poole, author of "The Blue Lagoon," writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation." With all these attractions, it is no wonder that the "Storyteller" is so great a favorite with magizino readers.

ABOUT THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 2 April 1914

ABOUT THE HORSE. The Arabian National Stud Book, Vol. 1, lias been published in Amer ica, and Sir Walter Gilbey has writ ten the preface, in which he states that up to the present time more than 40-90 distinct works, in various lan guages, have been devoted to the horse, and among these are nearly ninety in Arabic and Persian, which are specially devoted to the Arab breed. The history of the horse shows that there have been two distinct types in Britain since the time of Julius Caesar. This breed of horse was the anxious care of Parliament from a date prior to the time of King John; and it is noted that the weight a riding horse of this type had to bear, with its mail-clad rider and the plate armor .with which it was protected, might be upwards of 4ewt„ or 32 6tone.
