Lucille joined him as quickly, and thrusting their hffads out they saw Leon Montejo running > like a deer-he was evidently not ? hurt-towards the right-hand angle. | He reached it and disappeared, though his excited voice could still be heard ; and at the other side of the house a clamour had already ?broken out. ! Dick, meanwhile, had stooped and lifted Mary from the floor. She was greatly agitated as she clung to him ' and between hysterical sobs she gasp- 1 cd : "Where is he ! Did you shoot him, Dick ? Oh, thank God that you came when you did !" "Compose yourself," Dick answer ed, hurriedly. "The scoundrel Is gone i -and worse luck.

Ho led his companions across the open space adjoining tho prison, and then went tortuously through tho darkest and "narrowest streets that could 1>C found. To rcacli Gov ernment House without encountering people on the way was, o! course, impossible ; out the daring three, trusting to the excitement and to tho fact that their faces were partly concealed, pushed on calmly and swiftly.

Too Great a Test. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 5 June 1914
Too Great a Test. The professor was giving a lecture on phrenology, and had asked a boy to stop forward to act as a sub ject. After a careful examination of the lad'B cranium, ho turned to the audicnco, and said : "Ladies anrl gentlemen, one pro tuberance on the boy's head is par ticularly well developed. It is the bump of philoprogenitiveness. In this case it doubtless proves that the dear lad has a deep affection for his parents." i Turning to the boy, ho asked, per suasively : "Isn't that true, my lad ?" The boy hesitated a moment before replying. Then ho blurted out : "Please, sir, I likes muvver all right ; hut I ain't sure of farver." "Why, my lad, how is that ?" nsked the professor.

KEEPING YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
KEEPING YOUNG. It seems to be the ambition of all women nowadays to keep young. Yof they defeat their own ends by worry ing over the matter. Nothing ages like worry. No amount of beauty cul ture, facial massage, or hair drill will stay the ravages of time if the woman who adopts those methods is fretting at the flight of youth. If Instead of clinging frantically to the fringe of fleeting youth's garments, women would expend their energies in grow-'* ing old gracefully they would be far happier. It is a great mistake for women no longer in their flrst voutli to dress like girls of eighteen and to. behave as such-they merely appear ridiciulous. Let the same woman dress suitably for her age-not dowdily-and keep her heart young; 110 one will then notice her age or think of her as elderly. There are women of seventy whose hearts are still young, although their hair Is silvery. Such women have not worried at the coming of old age, and consequently practically have none. Be always cheerful...
A HOUSEKEEPING GROOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
A HOUSEKEEPING GROOVE. Don't allow yourself to get into set ways in the matter of housekeeping, but be always on the lookout to learn new and improved methods of doing things, and to pick up new cookery re: cipes and dodges. In some houses tho same reclpcs are used year after year, until it is possible on almost any day of the week to prophesy exactly the kind of dinner that will be served. Variety is the sauce of life, and it is a great mistake to get into a rut of this kind. It is an excellent plan to make a rule that at least once a week some entirely new recipe shall be tried, and in other ways, such as cook ing and serving, vary the old ones as far as possible. There is an animal hospital near Calcutta, where there are usually about a thousand animals under treatment horses, oxen, mules, elephants, dogs, and even sheep, all comfortably housed and looked after by a staff of eighty native "nurses," under the or ders of a British veterinary surgeon. "My husband annoys me very much...

A FEW MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
A FEW MAXIMS. A penny held close to the eye will obscure a chest of sold ten feet away. Discern a need anil 1111 it-that's the way to build a big business. A man may work harder counting peanuts than signing treaties. When Paderewski is playing tho "Minuet," don't interrupt him to ask for his autograph. No man should be called great until Ue Is a gentleman. Sarcasm is the sour milk ol ouman kindness. The real secret of success must ever be, "Think right, do right."
FADDY APPETITES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
FADDY APPETITES. There is a duty that every mothei owes to. herself and to society in gen eral, and that is to train lier children to eat what is set before them. In too many cases the young people are allowed to indulge in all sorts of fads and fancies concerning their food. One does not like this, another cannot eat that, and they are humored in theso whims; in fact, some mothers seem to take a certain pride in the faddish ness of their children's appetite. By treating these whims as matters of great importance, the mother is lay ing up trouble for herself and for oth ers both in the near and more distant future. These spoilt children grow up to be-so far as catering for thein goes-a nuisance to every one. Of course, if a child is really made ill by a certain dish, he may be allowed to avoid it, but if ho merely says he doe« not care for it he should be encour aged to eat it, and his failure to enjoy it be deplored, not praised. "I don't like this," is a speech thnt ought never to...
IT'S WORK THAT WINS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
IT'S WORK. THAT WINS. A great many who have failed to make a success in life start a poultry business, thinking that there they can easily crown their efforts with succes; and wealth. They could not make ti greater mistake. As a rule, anyone who cannot make a comfortable living at anything else cannot do so at this. Sound business principles must be applied, along with plenty of hard work, to ensure a paying business. Farmer Jones was on a visit to his nephew in London, and the two wont to the Cafe Royal in Regent-street for dinner. They had given their order and were waiting for It to be brought when the younger man, who had been glancing at a menu card that lay on the table, said: ' "By the way, uncle, did you ever h.-ive cerebro-splnal-nnjfiingitis?" 'No," replied Uncle Jones, after a few moments' mental struggle with the question, "and I don't want any. I'd rather have fried liver and bacon env day."

A Bad Blizzard. -:--t One of the worst blizzards recorded for the Just 25 years recently swept tho Atlantic coast, and hundreds of streets in New York were rendered impassable.

"Best Beggar in London." [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
"Best Beggar in London." The Hon. Sydney Holland, chair man of the London Hospital, who has become Viscount Knutsford by the death of his father, hns been de scribed as "'tho best beggar in Lon don." The now Viscount is in his fifty-nintii year. His wife is a daughter of the fourth Earl of Ash burnliam, and they have two daugh ters. In his early years he was a famous swimmer, and in 1877 was fifth in the long-distance champion ship of . England. But it is for his tireless energy on behalf of the Lon don Hospital and other charities that he is chielly known. The ori ginality of his methods in securing the vast sums of money necessary to maintain his hospital has shown that he has no peer even . amongst professional agents. He once offer ed a guinea to anyone who would give him a lino to fill a certain hoarding. That, he pointed out, gave him six weeks' advertisement while lie was making up his mind which line to choose. On another occasion ho made good use of the fact that it is in t...
