STRANGE DINNER PARTY, A gang of brigands which has re sently gained notoriety by its ex ploits in the province of Palermo descended on the household of Sig ner Antonino Sileci, a wealthy landowner, at Crunnnichcle, while he was sitting at Hupper with his wife, his sister-in-law, and two friends. The brigands, who were masked, entered the dining-room with re volvers in their hands, and relieved the master of the house and his guests of their valuables. Two of the brigands tlv?n seated themselves at the tabic beside the ladies and made a hearty meal, while their companions ransacked the house.

A Remarkable Duel. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 19 June 1914

A Remarkable Duel. There is always something weirdly fascinating" in the accounts of des perate struggles to the death be tween duellists, when often chance, and not skill, settled the encounter. One such case w*s that in which Villcneuve, a noted duellist ol France, insulted the sister of a young ISnglishman named Talbot, who thereupon struck him. As a consequence a duel waa fought on March 5, 1805. The conditions that there should be two pistols-one loaded, the other not. They were to be put into a handkerchief and drawn out by chance by the parties, who were afterwards to take their stand at a distance of only one pace from each other. The first choice foil to the lot of the Frenchman, who endea voured to choose the heaviest; the other was given to Talbot. They took their respective grounds, and so close that the muzzle of each man's pistol touched his ad versary. When both combatants were ready the seconds advanced and took a last farewell. Talbot shook his friends' hands, and s...

A Dangerous Gyroscope. Tho gyroscope is constructed scien tifically, andv.is, while moving round its axle, oxocuttii? a circular inovo mont round a, strong pillar sup porting it ; a weight at tho back insures tho stability of tho appa ratus. Tlio diametor of the wheel is about 13ft,; it is built like a bicycle wheel, and bears on one sido a metallic fac ing joined to tho axlo by eight glr ders^ of iron ; on the facing Is fixed a track composed of small wooden bars, giving nioro "grip" to tho tyres.

, i ? _ The Only Way. Tile bell rang three times, and th« man at the deck hastily reached for a flannel bandage. This he put round his neck. Then he arranged a sling, in which he put one arm, disarranged ' his hair, drew down the corners o£ his mouth, got out of his chair, and painfully limped towards the door. "Mr. Jones?" inquired the well dressed caller who opened it «at that, moment. The man with the bandage half-sup pressed a groan. "Yes, that's my name. What can t do for you?" "You appear to be 8uft6.'ing," said the intelligent caller. "Suffering!" returned the other. "Do you think I'm doing this for fun? But Vho.t is your business, sir?" "Er-pardon me," stammered the caller. "I think I'll drop in some other time-eh?" "It's some trouble," soliloquised the man with the bandage, as he removed the paraphernalia and returned to his desk.

TAKE MORE SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 19 June 1914

TAKE MORE SALT. Health and good looks are insepar able, and in the exercise of methods and remedies for the "reservation of outward beauty it must not be forgot ten that a good digestion, rich red blood and well-knit flesh are essen tials in t'ne formula of beauty. I want to say a word about salt as a factor In the building of the house beautiful in which the woman beautiful re sides. The Russians are in the habit of beginning a meal with a slice of bread spread with salt. This for a relish and the stimulating effect it has on the gastric functions. A solution of salt and water taken early in the morning is an excellent tonic. Ono cause 'of Irish peasant' beauty is th6 use of salt on potatoes eaten three times a day in youth, resulting in complexions of red and white, won derful strong hair and perfect health. Centuries ago Pliny counted the sun and salt as the mosf life-giving things in the world. Salt has an important work aa one of the valuable constituents of strong, healthy blo...

HINTS FOR AMATEUR SINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 19 June 1914

HINTS FOR AMATEUR SINGERS. Tho great secret ot voice produc tion is relaxity; the great (lifllculty Is to get tlie relaxity by conscious mus cular control. The difference between the Latin, English and German lan guages must bo remembered. If a choir contains many English and few foreigners, tho voices of tho latter are always heard above the rest. A groat deal of harm is done by applying words before the tone is properly placed. First establish the proper and correct production, then npply words. Vocalisation Is essential in the beginning to get the voice out of the throat-to place it in the cavi ties of the face, or. as t'no French have it, dans le masque. The breath must come evenly, and the words lie on the tone without interrupting It. Do not rely on your temperament, but on your brains. Our pond singers do not bury their temperament, but with the temperament the mind must be used. For while the mode or laclt of inspiration of the moment may debar you from a full command of tem...
