He gave the finest entertainments to his friends, in the course of which mirrors in the restaurants were fre quently broken by champagne bottles' and glasses being thrown about, but he invarlaibly paid the bill cheerfully. Recently, discovering that he had come to the end of his money, he in v'ted all his friends to a fete on an island, whither they were taken in his yacht. They epent the day in revelry, but when the last visitor had boon landed on his way home, the owner of the yacht sank her, and the next day applied to the municipality of St. Petersburg for a job as cross ing sweeper at 16/- a week, and got It. A short time ago a man was arrest ed on Broadway, New York, as a va grant and a beggar, and sent to gaol for ten days. In this way a sad story of fortune nnd folly came to light. The man was an...

No Real Change. A well-known M.P. at a dinner-party' the other day said of a Bill that he disliked: - "I object V3 this bill because it ■w®ild accomplish nothing. It would. ;malce no real change. It would be ilike the case of the actor and the ;canal boat-captain.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. When boiling potatoes, add just u little sugar, as well as salt. Thoy are far more floury than It only salt is added. The white of n raw egg applied to a burn or scald will provent inflam mation, bo soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a flsh-kettle is not available for boiling the Dsh, place an old plate at .the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when cooking them. Should the onion turn black, the mussels should not be eat en, as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place a few un used matches, heads downwards, in the pots. The sulphur will kill the worms and the plants will be quite healthy again.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

Hugh, of course, was much dejected, and lie would not deny it. To him it seemed monstrous that they must he sitting taere in that busy hotel, cheek by jowl with tourists who had come to see the citadel and to tear orange blossom from unoffending trees. The stories told of Dan Heresford by his American friends were justified be yond cavil. The man was an eccen tric, who shut his doors upon his fel lows when the whim took him, and would not open them even at the call of a woman's honor. It seemed in credible, but it was true. "He must have got my telegram," he said at the table—"it would have been returned to me, sure];', if he re fused delivery." Mat settled that doubt by sending Legarre immediate ly to the post ofllce. The follow re turned in ten minutes with the desir ed information. The telegram had been delivered "The nigger man, lie got him, mi lord. The peoples at the bureau say, Sir 'Eresford, he Is ill, and no mis take. His doctor, Mister Smeeth, ho gone away to America long ...

CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock House. I [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

CHAPTER XVL At the Rock House. T It was just twelve o'clock on the following morning when tho train put them down at the station of Cintra, and they passed out to find a car riage "with three springs and a rope," as Mat Michel put it, waiting for them at the door. Here, also, was the interpreter whom Elkington obliging ly sent to them—the broth of a man whose speech brought tears to their eyes. There had been an early thunder storm down in Lisbon: but the air was glorious hero upon the height, and so redolent of sweet perfumes that they might have been set down suddenly in an Oriental garden. Per fume of orange and lemon trees, of roses which made a bower of. every house, of great gardenias and flower ing shrubs—rocks which were hidden by blossoms, a vista of mountain and of sea beautiful beyond imagination, justified in an instant all that had been said of this Incomparable re treat. And dominating all upon the proud crest was the oid palace of tho R!»-.t1sU kings - now flying the ...

They watched their guest ashore, and then fell to the discussion of a plan. Hugh had already dispatched u telegram to Heresford, and he paced the deck Impatiently as though a re ply must reach him before he slept. George Hedges, a little frightenod by the night air, and quite without an eye for the beauties of Lisbon as the darkness revealed them, said that he did not believe a word of what lie had heard, and that the morning would justify him. "If the man has any conscience at all, he •will see you," said he. "Let us all go to bed and sleep upon it— quite assured that we shall laugh at our credulity. My dear Hugh, Is it either possible or probable that the man who proved himself ao good a friend to Lady St. Denys in the hour of her necessity, will now try to con vince us that he is a scoundrel? I say that it is preposterous—absolutely pre posterous. There is no other word 1n the language." "Except the Portuguese for whisky and soda," said Mat, as a sudden freshet of hope came to hi...

TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

TO MAKE COAL LA8T LONGER. Coal 1b not used as carefully as It might be. When breaking up a large lump of coal It is generally done by striking it vigorously in a haphazard fashion with the back of the axe, which wastes the coal by pounding ft to a dust. Now a coal chisel costs but a few ponce and this applied to the lump of coal along the grain or seam a- once splits .It cleanly and without ' any waste of dust. The judge looked at the prisoner keenly for. a few moments, and then said:— "It strikes me forcibly I. have seen your face before." '* "That's where I always wear it," re plied the prisoner, sullenly. * Then the Court laughed, and • It took some time to restore order. Biggs: Halloa, old man! How are you?

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 16 May 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. Handsome men are generally only clothes-props. Cryin' over spilt milk ain't no good —it on'y makes it skimmler. A man may find a woman's eyes beautiful and never know the exact color o£ them. The real man-hater doesn't exist, and the sham one gives up directly her lips are kissed. The- capable woman will always have a baby to nurse, and the baby •will be her UuBband. Poetry is a charming hobby, but there's no money in it, and it has a shocking effect on the hair. The happiest woman is the one who does not marry the man she loves; then she can go on loving him. Most women regard men as they do the Ten Commandments—something to be studied, but not obeyed. It's easiest to get a man to marry you when he first loses Mb head; then he'll do anything, and not know he's doing it. A platonlc friendship usually end3 in the woman losing her heart and the man his temper ... or the man his appetite and the woman her complexion. Modest demeanor is not only becom ing but discree...

That Heresford was just the man to be* uttractod by the Portuguese revo lution, and to wish to soe it out, all agreed.
