Jones Denounced. Mr. and Mrs. Jones were having their usual wrangle over the difficulty of getting along without running into debt. "I must have more money for house keeping expenses," asserted Mrs. Jones. "Well, that's impossible!" cried Jones. "Try as I will, I can't make both ends meet." "But that's easily explained," re torted Mrs. Jones-"it's because you I are so busy making one end drink!" I

THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD CONFLICT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD CONFLICT. What is believed to have been the origin of the present war occurred on February 8, 1SG4, when Lord Russell was summoned from bed, during a cruel night blizzard in St. Petersburg, by Lord Napier to decipher a tele gram from London, which contained instructions that dismayed both. The Ambassador was to tell Prince Gort chaktoff that England would not in terfere on behalf of Denmark, and the supposition was then put on one side that England would ever make war for a question of honor. That is why the keel of the first Dreadnought was really laid at St. Petersburg. Thenceforward Germany had an ambi tion, and determined to strain every nerve to wrest the trident from the hands of Great Britain, wherefore the tragedy of 1914 was bound to be enacted sooner or later. Coming to October 1913, Lord Redesdale tells us in his book of reminiscences how he visited Berlin as one of a mission in connection with the Anglo-German Foundation, being royally treated...
The End in View. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
The End in View. Donald McLanny, as behoved his reputation as the strong man and athlete in the district, entered .his ' name .for all the events in the village spprts; and, as a matter of fact, was a hot favorite for most of them. In short, great things were' expect ed of him, but expectations were hard ly realised. The first event on the programme was the quarter-mile; and of eight runners Donald finished eighth. "Donald, Donald," said a fellow - Scot, "why did ye no run faster?" - The strong man sneered. "Run faster!" he said contemptu ously. "An' me reservin' meself for the bagpipe competition!"
Hard to Say. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
Hard to Say. I At the trial of two alleged pick pockets recently, a detective was in the witness-box, and the examination ran something like this: i "Well," said the lawyer, "what made you suspect them?" , | "One of them had on his arm a lightweight alpaca overcoat, , with - a slit in the lining, in order that he ; might operate easier." r i "Now-, if you saw me walking along the street with such an overcoat on my arm, would you arrest me?" "No, I.know you. You are Mr. , the lawyer." "Well, what's -the..llifference be tween a lawyer and a pickpocket?" To this question the witness made no reply for a moment, but a ripple of laughter ran around the room as he was heard to say: "Well, I can hardly tell you, sir."

ONLY WOMAN GAOLER. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
ONLY WOMAN GAOLER. Although prisons are to be found in every corner of the globe, it is a re markable fact that there is only one official woman-gaoler. Her name is Jenny Porchet, and she lives in Switz erland. She is governor and warder in the prison of Aigle, in the Rhine valley. A good many years ago she married the chief warder of the prison, and soon proved to be a helpmeet indeed, for, being a strongly-built woman, and with proper notions of discipline, she made as good a gaoler as her hus band, and more than once did his work when he was away. When he died the authorities ask ed her to take his place permanently, and she accepted. All the year around the Aigle prison contains from twelve to twenty male prisoners, sentenced to terms of im prisonment ranging from three months to three years, and although the woman-gaoler has no assistants, she has never had any trouble with the prisoners. Strict disciplinarian though she is, the woman-gaoler has the kindliest of hearts, and tak...
Poultry Hints. "In the Pink." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
Poultrj Hints;1 By William North. "In the Pink." Never forget that it is not a hen's nature to lay eggs in mid-whiter. Not much fear of forgetting? Oh, but ap parently there is. Lots of people grumble because their birds fail to fill the egg-basket at this time of tie year, and, bent upon making them do so, they use all sorts of strange and often injurious mixtures, spices and heating food, which are more liable to upset the egg-making machine than to start it working smoothly. Only tho bird which has moulted well, has had a rest, and now, to quote our friends in Franv~, "in the pink," can be expected to do such an extraordinary thing as to produce eggs at a time when Nature has no use for them. Eggs are laid in order that from them chickens may be hatched, but the hen which went off and "stole" her .nest in June would l:e wasting her time. Every natural law tells the bird to save her energies for the spring, so that there may be a nice brood of chickens in, say, Oc tober. She does ...
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XVIII.) DOOM OF THE HOHENZOLLERNS [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
AUSTRALIA . PLAY,® THE GAME (No. XVIII.) DOOM OF -THE HOHENZOLLERNS Is the House of the Hohenzollerns doomed? Even in Germany it is said that the Crown Prince, owing to his character, would, not be welcome as German_ Emperor, while the Kaiser has been weighed In the balance by the Allied nations and found wanting in -every particular in which a sover eign may expect to win and hold the respect of a civilised world. He has brolcen his word, treaties have been no more than waste paper to him, and in^ill questions where national honor is concerned, he has calmly followed the cold-blooded example of his an cestor, misnamed Frederick the Great, who laid down the law that might was always right. One form ol frightfulness follows another in this awful war. It started when, before the war began, the German Chancel lor, Dr. Bethmann-Ilollweg, stated that a solemn treaty was 110 more than a scrap of paper. A few days afterwards frightfulness developed on a large scale when the German Army bur...

EXPLAINING THE QUOTATION. "Man wants but little liere below." He wants liis meals coOfted just right, and composed o£ the particular ?things he likes to eat. He wants his clothes kept in perfect order, and the buttons sewed on. He wants to get up when he gets-ready, and-then lie "wants to swear because" he misses his car' to the office. He wants to be cross when he comes home and not have it mentioned. . He wants to leave his coat and hat and shoes just where he happens to take them oil when he comes in. He wants his slip pers right in a certain place where he can find them without effort. He wants to put the ashes from his cigar in the ri?ost convenfent place while lie smokes. 1-Ie wants to yawn and go to bed when his wife wants him to go out with her and make a call. He wants everything just as he wants it, and he wants no talk about it. -Wil nam sanciford.
Trade After the War. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
Trade After'the War. By Harold Storey. What is it we desire when the war is over? There is great need for clear and honest thinking- Which of tlio two ideals are we to follow -a partnership of nations or a trade war? Do we want the League of Peace or the policy of the Paris Con ference? We must make up our minds; because it is impossible to have both. It is on this high ground that the issue should be finally judged. There is no question of treating Germany gently or generously. ' Nobody pro poses to fall on Germany's neck. If we make a genuine peace it will not be for Germany's sake, but for our own, and for the"sake of the future of the world. Nor is this at all a ques tion of our sentiments or emotions; it is a matter of high State action, full of consequences; and the decision should be taken with deliberate fore sight and on the broadest grounds of reason. The stake is civilisation. There have been other civilisations before ours, before that of Itome or Greece or Egypt or Pers...

CHAPTER X The flower garden at Norcaster Towers was a blaze of color. The beds that were cut out and arranged in geomefrical fashion and set like jewels in the velvet, turf, were full ol bloom. The old south wall that gave oil to the terrace aliove was cov ered with gorgeous creepers, canar iensis, lemon-leaved geranium, sweet scented hydrangea; the border at the foot was gay with herbaceous plants. Opposite, below the Ha-ha in which the garden ended, a wide bell of many-lmed roses made a riotous wealth of colors. In the very centre of the garden a fountain splashed down, reflecting in the sunshine a hundred prismatic tints. In and out among the flower-beds a tall girl was pacing, her black gown looking sombre ? against its brilliant background. Alma Beresford did not seem to fear the sun, its beams found no flaw i;i her perfec...

Very Convincing. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
Very Convincing. As he disliked motor-cars, a coun try squire always kept good horses. Recently he bought a particularly handsome mare, and a Jew days later asked his groom what he thought of the new arrival. "She's a fine-looking animal, . sir," replied the man, "but I'm afraid she's a bit touchy." "Why do you think so?" questioned the squire. "She doesn't seem to tak^ to no one, sir. She can't bear mo to go in to her box to groom her." "Oh, she'll settle down in a few days,", the squire reassured him. "Everything's strange to her, you know. I don't think there's much wrong with her temper." "Nor didn't I at first, sir," replied the groom. "But, you see, she's kick ed me out o' that there box twice al ready, and when you come to think of it that's very convlncin'." Sixty thousand people in Ireland speak Irish only. : A traveller can journey around the world in fifty days.
CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 11 May 1917
CHAPTER XI. Captain Eric Vibart came down the staircase at the Towers, looking in his immaculate evening dress, with the white gardenia In his button-hole, a thoroughly well-groomed, well set-up young Englishman. He had aged considerably in the past two years. His face had lost its 'youthful outlines; it was graver and sterner. There was still that hint of weakness about the mouth, but the eyes were steadier, the whole expression had gained in character. .- His lips were set closely together to-day. His meeting with his sister and her husband had not been alto gether a pleasure-it had been fraught with memories, of old memor ies that held much pain. He was telling himself now that lie had been a fool to come to the Tow ers; a fool and worse, to dwell on the thought of, meeting pretty Barbara Barrington again. A soldier with nothing but his pay, he was no match for General Barrington's daughter, even if liis past record had been clean. But, as he thought of that, Eric's head sank low...
