The news of the demise came as a painful >hcck to Mr Gray's many per sonal friends throughout the Korong shire and in the adjoin ing distrcits, as though it was known last week that his condi tion was a serious one, it was lifllcult to realise that the end ,iad followed so quickly.

Philip Slade drew a deep, sileut breath, and the color ebbed away from beneath tho Biin blackoned features. He could fool It rush to his heart, with a swift, bewildering emotion that shook his whole being. What face was this, so like the face of a woman belonging to the past this lovely, childish face that, even as ho • v.atched, himself unseen, Beemed slowly to whiten, and surely that slight, frail form swayed unsteadily? Slado strode across tho room, just in time to catch the little girl as she collapsed in ...

Their master one morning called them both before him that he might hear what they had to say. The cook pleaded that the coach man was lounging about the kitchen the best part of the morning, yet he was so ill-natured that he would not fetch the cream for her, though he saw Bhe had not a moment to spare. Th coachman said It was not his busi ness. "Very well," said the master; "but what do you call your business?" "To take care of the horses and clean and drive the carriage,-" replied the coachman. "Yon say right," answered the mas ter, '"'and I do not expect you to do more than that for whlcl|..I pay you; but this Z Insist upon—that every morning before breakfast you get'the carriage ready, and drive the cook to the farmer's for the cream; and I hope that you will allow that to be part of your business."

WBALTH FROM SAWDUST. Oai and Braad Made' From It. American and Canadian sawmills have discovered- that the sawdust which they have been perplexed liow to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbranco Is worth at least £8 per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city llUe Ottawa with light and heat at 5d. por 1000ft. This Is thought to portend that around the ,great sawmills, which havo boon emp tying their dUBt Into the Ottawa River, a variety of hew Industries subsisting on it are likely to grow up.

WHY WE SHAKE HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914
WHY WE SHAKE HANDS. When a gentleman meets a lady of his acquaintance In tlio street, he In variably raises his hat by way o£ recognition. This form of salute is a relic of by-gone days o£ chivalry, when knights rode and walked about clad in steel armor to preserve them selves from the sword-cuts and spear thrusts of their enemies. When such a ltnight entered any house as a guest he at once discard ed his helmet to show that he. trusted to the protection of his host, and wa3 not afraid. For the same reason he bared his head when talking with a lady ho knew, and the custom has been continued to the present day. A good many years ago there was most certainly a reason why two men Bliouid shake hands when they met. If they did not recognise each other they would each grasp the other's weapon-hand as a precaution against treachery. From this It became cus tomary to surrender their fighting 1 hands freely to one another.

CRANKS WHO HIDE MONEY. Bank-notes Concealed In Books! Among the eccentricities of the rlcli, the paBSiou lor always possessing enormous sums of ready cash is sure ly one of the most extraordinary. A former Lord Dysart one day asked a companion-nui'Be to go to town and get u cheque cashed for him at the Bank of England. When she was ready to start the old peer sat down and wrote a cliequo for £100,000, and told her to be suro and see that Bho got one note for the whole amount. The cliequo was duly presented, and the Banlt, having satisfied themselves hs to the nurse's authority for making such a request, suggested that a clerk should accompany her and l-and the £100,000 note In person to his lordrililp. After having done so the clerk told the peer that only three such notes were in existence. "One," he said, "we have at the Bank, an other I have Just handed to your lord Bhlp, and the third, which some time ago disappeared from circulation, we have never been able to trace." "Per haps...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent window-blind cordB breaking, dust the cords, and then rub them over with a well-greased rag. The snapping Is caused .by friction, which Impoverishes the cordB, and il ey aro further weakened by the sun and weather. It is an excellent plan to keep In the kitchen a bottle filled with equal parts of llnaeed oil and lime-water, to alleviate the pain of burns. Shake the bottle well before using the lo tion,. and keep the burned parts from the air by covering with lint. The best way to teBl BilK is to cut off a small piece and burn It. If It burns out quickly, leaving a clear, crisp, grey ash, the flllk is pure; but If it smoulders and leaves a heavy reddish-brown o.sh it has 'been treated with chemicals, and will not wear well. A very good way to prevent a crack ed "wash-hand basin' from, breaking Is to paint along the" crack with white paint; then place along it a piece of wide tape, the length of the crack. Paint well over this, and when dry it will .be as ...

The Hypothetical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914
The Hypothetical Question. "MiSB Prlttly," Buid the young law yer with the high brow and the Henry Clay forelock, "let me ask you a hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and increasing Income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to- appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair of the texture and glory of spun gold, whose lips were more perfect than Hogarth's line of beauty, whoa'j cheeks held a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink ' of the - rose petal—a young woman whose'culturo and charm easily placed^her,.immea surably above all otherwomen" in the world—and he were to ask this young woman if Blie would- " "Oh, Mr. Blackstone!" she whisper ed, sinking into his arms.

No More Questions Asked. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914
No More Questions Aaked. The inhabitants of a certain county in England—we will not specify which —are especially distinguished by an inordinate desire to. become familiar with details of the private concerns of everyone with whom they come in to contact. Recently a stranger journeyed into a village in this county known as MIrgvllle, entered the local inn, or dered refreshment, and sat down. "Staying here, sir?"~asked the land lord. A brief nod was the reply. "Business good, sir?" "I don't know what to make of it," suid the stranger: ' And then the usual angling for In formation began, till at last came the point-blank question: ."What is your (business, may 1 ask, sir?" 'The stranger rose, looked carefully around, and put his Hps to the earB of the landlord. "I'm an AnarchiBt!" he said. "Wh-a-t!" said the startled laud lord, "one of them that coom fra Rub ela?"

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 9 May 1914
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It is well known that colors have different effects upon health. Some colors , may soothe—green, for " in stance—and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which Is noted for its healing qualities. Red has always •been a color that has "made Itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed, those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people, of Tongkln actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone In this respect. The Spaniards make a , point not only of attiring victims of measles In a red "shirt," but also of feeding them with red syrupi. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per In which the main color Is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. . Red is not only good for human be ings, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people of Hol...
