Tom Dawson cuused considerable comment, Tiloso who suspected him before nodded their hoads ns though their suspicions lind been tully con- firmed; many who had believed in him began to doubt; and even those who persisted that he could not know anything about Miss Ashworth's dis- appearance called him a fool. Colonel Grainger called him quixotic, and was evidently greatly annoyed. To take up Dawson in this ostentatious fash- ion was tantamount to declaring that tho boy had been unfairly dealt with, but tho Colonel found some excuse for Bannister in the fact that Hickson had treated him badly.

The animals ealloped past the "Advertiser'' office, towards the bridge.

Smoking in Winter. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911
Smoking In Winter. A physician of note asserts that smoking has a worse effect on most people In winter than In summer, and he advises all smokers who fin«l their health and mental faculties Impaired In winter for no apparent reason to aceept tobneco ns the explanation, and to cut down their smoking dur- ing the colder months. Tobacco, lie saya, is a very powerful dru?;, and cannot he consumed in larj-e quanti- ties without affecting the heart. It must be remembered that tl.iring the winter the heart has a great deal more "work to do than In summer, for the cold causes the blood vessels to become small and pinched. It is thus less able to bear tho extra strain put on it by smoking. A ship built oF iron weighs about foiif-flfth les» than a wooden vessel nf Hie sanie dimensions. TTapninot-p. ;\t leapt. not solitary: lt joys to ronnniMiirntr; it loves oth- ers, for it depends cu them for its existence. Women succeed best with poultry because they are more careful than men.
