PERMIT TO REMARRY. Because lie has lived "a uniformly good life" for at least five years, Mr. Charles R. Pelgram, & millionaire silk manufacturer of Paterson, a town six teen miles from New York, is to be allowed to remarry.

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death of its founder. It is well to remember that his" gen ius was great also In .other most last ingly fruitful fields. He was not only a great warrior, but also a great states-', man-and as such he did not fail to re alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences. Writing to the astronomer Orianl, from' Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for ?posterity, should be' especially honored under free govern ments. "... I Invite the scholars to meet and to give me their opinions as to the means that, should be taken, and the needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences and the fine arts. Those who wish to go to France will bo received with dis tinc...

The Etiquette Book. "Madam," he began, as the door opened, "I am selling a new book on 'Etiquette and Deportment.'" "Oh, you are," she responded. "Go down there on the grass and clean the mud off your feet!" "Yes'm. As I was saying, ma'am, I am sel " "Take of your hat. Never address a strange lady at her door without re moving your hat!

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
EPIDEMIC DISEASE. NIP IT IN THE BUD. "It's catching"--this is what people say when^ a malady spreads among them as fite spreads* in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, bccaue? if once you understand why " it's catching," you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it-cure is often impossible, and is expensive. ' Now you can understand the flafric running - through grass, but you can only sec the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread y by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them; the only way to prevent Disease Germs "catching" is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult; but in this case it is easy and chcap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation ...

Not So Green As He Looked. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
Not So Green As He«Uooked. A man witli a wife who has her own ways about doing things is lucky enough to catch, her now and then. "My dear," he' Baid the other morn ing as he was dressing, "I. think you were right when you toid me Inst night that there were burglars in the house." "Why?" sho asked nervously. "Because all the money that I had in my pockets when I went to beil is gone." "Well," she said, with an I-told-you so air, "if you had been brave and got up and shot the wretch you would have had your money this morn ing." "Possibly, my dear, possibly," he said. "But if I had done so I would have been a widower." She laughed softly then and gave half of it back to him.
HOTEL FOR "DOWN-AND-OUTS." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
HOTEL FOR "DOWN-AND-OUTS." An hotel for "down-and-outs," which lias just been opened in Chicago, by Mr. Charles Dawes, a millionaire bank president, is filled every night, while many are turned away for lack of accommodation. Mr. Dawes erecte I the house at a C03t of £20,000, in memory of his son Rufus, who was drowned. The hotel, the "Chronicle" says, provides a hath. and. a night's lodging for 2%d., while private rooms can be secured for 5d. The rules of the house are framed so as not to hu'-t the pride of any of the guests. Soup can be obtained for a penny, coffee al the same price, and other food in pro portion. The place is a godsend to Chicago's poor workers, many or whom are out of employment at pre sent. Every night the place is storm ed by those who. wish to get in out of the cold, a line o£ nearly 500 men awaiting entrance. The house ac commodates only 300, and the strug gles for priority of place in the line are pitiful to behold.

The man gave a weary smile and replied, "If you 'ad only been 'art the woman you are, I might 'ave 'ad. a try."
WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
WHICH END OF A P03T SHOULD BE UP. It is a common belief among farm ers that a post will last longer If sot In the ground tho reverse of the way n grew in the tree, in other words, with the butt end up, Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap In a tree is always ascending, or at leist that it is easier for tho sap to go up than down. Consequently, it Is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent tho rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it leas liable to de cay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to tho contrary Is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by tho Ohio Agricultural Experi ment Station (says tlie "Scientific American") and the above questioi. was considered. One fence in par ticular contained 150 black locust posts, of which 8G were set wi...
CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
CHAPTER XI. . While Sheila waB happy as girlcoull be, without, as she expressed it, a caro in the world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellalrs. It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed-as far as she could tell-to cease to exist. Bellalrs was kind to her, paying her every possible attention, but he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it In one of his, nor did he look into her eyes with the loying-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellalrs could not pet the pretty girl enough, but he never turned to liis wife with the old dearly longed-for look In his eyes. Moreover, there was no doubt but that Peter Bellairs, K.C., no longer absolutely trusted Margaret. It was he who paid the bills as they...
GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," otc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X. Those of ub who have not been pre sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but for the most part from newspapers and weekly periodicals. Sheila Danver's debut differed from that of other girls in two respects.- In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her dress-which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction-was remark able, and, in the second, she wore the most magnificent pearls of nny debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went off with the usual eclat, or perhaps one may say, want of eclat. The Duchess of Tewkesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered her presence, ana, without a moment's hesitation, removed the brooch ...
HONEYMOON TRAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
HONEYMOON TRAMPS. The average bride when she changes her orange blossoms anil her resplendent wedding dress for the more prosaic travelling costume, does not usually have to prepare for such a journey as that undertaken by Mr. and Mrs. Grantham, 01 Alberta. After walking 7000 miles and being held up a dozen times, Norman Grant ham, of Calgary, who, with his bride, formerly Miss Mabel Ryan, of Minne apolis, started last spring on a honey moon tramp around the world, is back in Calgary for a time. Mrs. Grantham's health broke down when the trampers reached Brindisi, on the Mediterranean, forcing the temporary abandonment of the trip. Mr. Grantham will resume the jour ney at once, as soon as his wife's health is restored. Mr. Grantham returns with a whole some respect for the ability of Eng lish pedestrians. He triri'l to break the record of ten hours and two min utes from London to Dover-sixty eight miles; but the best he could do waB eleven hours and twenty-one min utes.
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And nil things useless seem, - There's just ono thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind Someone to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." No one has over told just why Those words such comfort bring; . Nor why that whisper makes cur cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We leave them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt that so't caress The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease cornelr to you. But if the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm around. And whispers "Never mind." -

Something to Help. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
Something to Help. When the Kaiser announced to Prince von Euelow that he had deci ded to appoint him Chancellor of the Empire, Jie was surprised to see a shadow of disappointment crosB the statesman's face. "What's the matter?" he demanded. "Are you not satisfied?" "Pardon me, sire," replied the Prince, "I did not wish to appear un grateful, but I was thinking of my wife. I know that she detests the im mense Chancellor's palace, where we shall have to live, and she will want the whole of the interior thoroughly cleaned and redecorated. I am afraid, therefore, that we shall have to pass the next two or three months in the midst of cleaning operations/' "Don't worry about that, my dear von. Buelow," replied the Kaiser. "Present my best compliments to the Princess, and tell her that I shall have much pleasure in helping her to" make the task of cleaning easier for her." The new-made Chancellor thanked him, and retired, certain that the Kaiser would place, a regiment of cleaners at the...
A Persuasive Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
A Persuasive Tonaue. At school in Cornwall, Mr. Rudyard Kipling, never a brilliant scholar, was known as "Gigs" (i.e., "gig-lamps," meaning spectacles), and was esteem ed because he won the confidence of an austere spinster who kept the lo cal tuckshop, with the help of throe cats. She hated the college youths, grudgingly took their cash, and stern ly denied them credit. But "Gigs" went round one day, and, while his companions were bursting vita sub dued laughter, he blandly "talked cat" to the old lady, and succeeded in win ning her confidence to such an extent that his name-the only one-was .placed on her books.
A Wise Precaution. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
A Wise Precaution. Two seamen-an Irishman and a Scotsman-had been breaking leave and had been ordered to receive ten strokes of the "cat." They had pre viously held very good characters, and, taking this into consideration, the captain said that if they wished to wear anything to protect their backs a little they might do so. The Scotsman replied that he would like to have a strip of canvas on his back, and this request was granted. "What would you like to have, Pat?" asked the captain, turning to the second seaman. "Share, sir," was the reply, "if it's all the same to you, I'd like to have the Scotsman on my back!"
What It Meant. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 14 May 1914
What It Meant. A good story is being told of a Parliamentary candidate who is "nur sing" a Sussex constituency in view of the next election. He was earnest ly expounding the emancipation of the laborer to an agricultural audience, and was approaching the heart of the subject, when he noticed that the countrymen looked uneasily at one another. Could it be that he had not made the necessity of the great deliv erance clear to their minds. He re traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelinrnary points over again. The uneasiness of the audience visi bly increased. At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door. It was a sig nal for a general movement. The elec tors bore the candidate no ill-will they simply filed out. He wiped his brown, and turned in despair to the chairman. "What does it mean?" he asked. "I called them to liberty, and they turn their backs on me!" "It means," said the chairman, "that they fully appreciate your prin ciples, but it is nearly ten o'clock, a...
