The Peer and the Woman. Published by arrangement with Messrs. Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd. [All Rights Reserved.] CHAPTER XIII. Her Last Visitor. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 16 October 1915
BY.E. PHILLIPS OPPENHEIM. Published by arrangement with Messrs. Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd. [All Rights Reserved.] CHAPTER XIII. - Her Last Visitor. For several moments after the car riage had passed out of sight Lord Alceston stood still on the pavement lost in astonishment. Then he slowly retraced his steps and met Thornton coming towards him. "There's something I don't quite un derstand about this," said the latter, musingly. "The woman is unidenti-' tied, friendless, penniless, and without relations. Yet she's being buried at some one's expense, and some one who has a bit of money, too, for although there was only one mourning carriage, everything was turned out in uncom monly nice style-not at all like an East-End funeral-and that some one, with a very well-dressed young lady, goe$ to the funeral too: That seems strange."

BACCHUS MARSH STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 16 October 1915
BACCHUS MARSH STATE SCHOOL. A transformation has been effec ted at the above 'building-from the old ill-ventilated; sombre looking place into a beautiful "White House." All the interior walls, which previously were only coloured brick-work in the rough (good germ gatherers) are .now snow-white plaster, with a 5 feet cement dado, which will not 'act as a finger print gallery so readily as the white, The pupils should take .a delight in preserving all the' rooms and ap pointments from damage, as it is to their interest and comfort- that they should work amid pleasant surround ings. The improvements were -really brought about by a visit the Director of Education (Mr. Frank Tate) made to an evening lecture of the Domes tic School of Economy, held some time ago in the school building, when he was so impressed with the inadequate ventilation, -&c., that he ordered a -report to be made on the building at once.

A Dull Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915
A Dull Boy. "Thomas, you have disobeyed your grandmother." "No, I didn't, mother." "Yes, you did. Have you not been in swimming?" "Yes, mother." "Didn't I hear her say to you not to go in swimming?" "Oh, she didn't tell me that. She only came 'out and said: 'Boys, I wouldn't go in swimming,' and.I should not think she would, an old rheumatic woman like her; but she didn't say anything about our going in swim ruing." "I like to go to church." "Why?" "Well, it's so comforting to see one man keep so many women quiet for an hour." It is a great misfortune that so many people think it a mark of saintliness to be easily shocked, whereas the greatest saints of all are the people -who are never shockecb; they may be distressed; they may wish things different; but to be shocked is often nothing btit a markpfr yanity, a self conscious desire that otheie should know how high one's standard, now sensitive one's conscience is.

ADVANTAGES OF DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 October 1915
AOVANTAGES OF DUST. That there is much evil in dust al most everyone knows. For a great many years now we have been warned against dust, and scieetisets and expert medical men have repeatedly proved why it is dangerous, says a writer in the "Graaff-Reinet Advertiser." They have shown how deadly germs get in to the dust from the sputum and from thousands of other things, till to-day almost every person avoids dust as much as possible. And while it is quite true that there is a great men ace to health in dust, and true also that thousands of people have taken infectious diseases through breathing germ-laden particles of dust, it is also true that dust is quite necessary. In the first place, to prove this. let it be stated that authorities agree that dust is the only thing that will bear up the evaporated moisture in the fom of clouds, and therefore, if it were not for dust there would be no rain. Not a drop of all the water evaporated from the oceane would come to earth on anything bu...
