PICTURES THAT SELL IN I MILLIONS. j An nrtlst's life ls not a happy ono. Thc Into Holman Hunt struggled for 1 years against adverse criticism in his effort to simplify, purify, and beau- tify British art. At one time his pov- erty was so great that he made up his mind to emigrate to Canada; but, fortunntely, Millnls came to bis bro- ther artist's rescue, and persuaded him to go down to Surrey and con- tinue bis work. It was here that he painted the background for his famous picture, "Tire Light of the World." For three months Holman Hunt painted all night In the open air by the aid of the full moon and a solitary candle, and during that time he placed upon the I the canvas his immortal work. All over the world "The Light of the World" was exhibited, and caused a great sensation. Reproductions sold In every town and country village. Its sales up to tho present time can- not fall far short of a million. The original picture was placed in a chapel at Oxford, but later the artist spent ...
Branxholm Railway [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 5 August 1911
Branxholm Railway The feeling of dissatisfaction in re- tía rd to the working of the new line ie general, all parts of the North East Coast uniting in condemnation of tilt; present state of affaire. Residents along the route do not appreciate tho fact of three days being required if they nish to ran into Launceston as is the case at present and there is an evident desire tj obtain an altered service. At the same time if the order of running was reversed no great benefit would accrue, as the advantage in passenger service would not compensate for the dislocation of the mail arrangements. Two trains per da; will come in time if the Coast continues to advance but just at present there is not much chance of this. Per- haps as a temporary compromise it might he well it a morning train was run from each end. This would not bi) a perfect scheme, but possibly wuuld be the best under all circumstances. At any rate it would reduce the 3 days necessary for a city run to two and no very con- si...

"We cannot get to town to-night." said the Colonel, still with his watch in his hand. "I wonder whether this fellow Bunco has played the fool with us." "Is thero something wrong, or everything, as Mr. Hickson says which maybe Is a little exaggeration, sir, begging your pardon-perhaps I ought to know who Bunco Is," said Purkls, "A man who brought mo news of Miss Ashworth," Hickson answered; "news that Mr. Untmlster had carried her off and was keeping her a pri- soner.

"Yours Sincerely." [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 5 August 1911
"Yours Sincerely." Perhaps you have no Mea when you sign yourself "Yours sincerely" that this phrase has anything to do with tho marble trade of ancient Home Hut the fact ls that thc old Roman jerry-builders used up defective slabs of Ularbie In the erection of residen- ces to sell nt a lower figure, nnd cov- ered up tho defective work with a ce- ment of which wax formed the chief Ingredient. The house would then look quite ns stately and genrdne as the other till nn exceptionally hot sun melted tho wax and revealed the fraud. Hence n perfect building was said to he "Sine eera," or "without ce- ment," and a friendship which would stand thc trial of ndversity was said to he "without cement." The signature "Sine eera," ns a symbol of genuino affection nnd pro- bity, has been used ever since, and Is perpetuated In the English word "sincerely."_

KING GEORGE'S REAL NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 5 August 1911
KINO GEORGE'S REAL NAME. If Illa Majesty King George were to be deprived of nil lils titles and re- duced to the nmk of a commoner, lie would be known simply as Mr. Wettln. The Counts of Wettln wore tho foun- ders of tho l'rlnce Consort's ancient houso ot Saxe-Coburg. The Prince Consort's name was Wettln Just as Queen Victoria was by hirth a Guelph, lind she became a Wettin on her mar- riage. Thus the present King's real name Is George Wettin. However, the nanto and title given to His Majesty on tho new coinage were "Georgias V., Del Grulla, tiritan nlailuni Ilex, Kittel Defensor, Indao Imperator." lt ls too long for tho coin- age, but this ls how the King's full style and title go as corrected to date: "George thc Filth, hy the Grace of God of tho United Kingdom or Great Tlrit aln and Ireland and thu British Dom- inions Uoyond the Sens, King, Defen- der of the Faith, Emperor of India."
