CYCLING. What are the lnading Common wealth Cycling Bodies going to do in respect to their road racing pro grammes. At this juncture whilst everyone's att"ntion is focussed on the gigantic struggle now going on in Europe, it is doubtful if cyclists will throsv much heart into the sport, and furthermore, it they did whether tho trade wonld feel justi fied in expending money in that di rection just now, for no one dare venture an opinion as to how long the present upheaval of Europe will last. The cessation of long distant road racing, just when matters had been placed on a satisfactory footing is to be deeply regretted, but at the same time all other sports, that en tail heavy monetary expense, will perhaps (with the exception of horse racing, upon which so many depend for a livelihood) be partially sus pended. pending the continuance of the war. Short distance road rac ing events that entail little expense will no doult be continued, but where the outlay runs into between £100 and £...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914
COUGH GENTLY. Pew people know how to cough pro perly. It never occurs to the ordin ary individual that there is a right way and a wrong way of doing it. Yet it is a matier of no small import ance. If every sigh means a drop of blood out of the heart, as people say, every cough means some greater or less proportion of time knocked off one's life. Most people cough as loud ly and forcibly as they can. But it is rather costly noise, for the single reason that it tears and inflames the lungs. The lungs consist of an extra ordinary delicate sponge-like tissue, which sometimes gets inflamed and choked with phlegm. "When we try to ■,ret rid of this substance we cough. Rut obviously, if we remove It vio vntly, we must necessarily injure the ielicate lung tissue. Therefore train .ourself to cough as gently as pos sible.
SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914
SLEEP—ITS VALUE. Sloop, nature's most potent medi cine! How it brings peace to the troubled, rest to the weary, and rose3 to the cheeks, if we woo the power to lay aside all cares till tlir morrow. But sometimes the moment the head reaches the pillow seems to be the signal for each individual worry and care to present itself like an aveng ing angel. These mighty companions seem malicious in their intent. When the hours of the night go hand-in-Land with wakeful care, the dawn may bring fitful slumber, but on the face there is left a weary, worried expression, and dark circles under jthe_eyes_that_ When The system is depleted the physician prescribes a tonic which prevents the further wasting of tis sues, and creates an appetite, which is the foundation of recuperation for the system that needs nourishment, so sleep retores the lost strength, and fill us with vim for future exertions. As there is no ironclad rule governing the amount of food required, nsither can there be a rule which...

CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914
CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. Gliray nodded and walked as far as the inner consulting-room, where the telephone was placed. He was vaguely asking himself who this Here path was who wished to speak to him so urgently. The name was oddly j familiar, and yet for the moment he [ could not recall where he had heard it. j It seemed in some way to be directly I concerned with tho stirring events of the past few hours. But then there had been so much to think about and, in any case, what did it really mat ter? Probably Horepath was no more than a easual patient who would see him to day and would be gone to-mor row. There were hundreds of such, each regarding his or her own parti cular case as being of the first im portance. And yet Gilray was an noyed because for the moment he could not place the name. He took off the receiver and made the usual signal that lie was there. "Is that Doctor Everard Gilray?" a voice asked. "Oh, yes, I am Mr. Geoffrey Horepath speaking. We have met before at on...

GiJray shrugged his shoulders al most indifferently. He was getting accustomed to these dramatic epi sodes. Besides, he had nothing to be afraid of. Let liiin only get his money and he would not trouble this amazing household again. All the j same, Hi ere was something exceeding • ly striking about this remarkable old J man. He might have come straight . from a stage setting, so strange was his aspect. i ' He was "Gaspard"' and- "Shyloclc" in one—tall ajid lean, and high of fo: o —^he&d—from which the .leonine grey hair was tossed carelessly back, he ■ had thin, dark hatchet-like features j and eyes that glowed like stars behind I his gold-rimmed glasses. His keen, . clever face was lined and wrinkled, his skin the color of old parchment. | To strengthen the likeness to the : classical example of miserliness, he : wor...
CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914
CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. Most of the houses in Park Gardens | are small, and possess no gardens in the true sense or the word, but Num i uer 4 differs from the rest, inasmuch as it stands in its own compact grounds overlooking Regent's Park, ! and therefore in summer presents an outlook reminiscent of sylvan shades in the heart of a peaceful woodland country. At one time the house had belonged to a famous artist, with an income equal to his refined extrava gances, and the whole place had been remodelled according to his designs. At his death the house, with all de corations and furniture complete, had been offered for sale and was prompt ly secured by the present owner, known to hec~fr.icn&lt;ls an Madamc Nirion Desterre? ' The sale had caus ed some sensation at the time, and certain of the papers had striven to | learn something of the history of the fair purchaser. They had little to show as the result or their labors beyond the fact that Ninon Desterre was the y...
