DETECTING FORGERY. How Experts Work. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
DETECTING FORGERY. How Experts Work. It is a very clever forger -"who can deceive the up-to-date expert chirc graphy. Many experts base their in vestigations; of possible forgery on the belief that everyone has a pen scope, just as thdy have a special finger-print. This technical term de scribes the average stretch of paper that one may cover without lifting the pen off the paper and shifting the hand to continue the line. It is a pe culiarity of handwriting that in a written letter, for instance, the pen scope throughout may show an aver age stretch of one inch for the text of the letter, while in the signature, if the whole length of the name, twice as long may be covered. If the writer covers the full stretch of his name in this way, the expert may prove by the shorter pen-scope of the copyist that the studied copy is a forgery. On its face, therefore, however free of stroke a forger may naturally be, his effort to produce a facsimile of another signature will render his scope sh...
A SECRET PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
A SECRET PAST. By H. J. Bickle. The big dining saloon at the Coron ation Hotel was filled with its usual crowd of fashionable men and women. Seated a little apart from others, at a small table almost hidden away from sight by a screen of growing palms, a man and a woman had just reached the dessert stage of dinner, and as the latter's hand stretched out for some grapes, the man's fingers .touch ed hers for a moment, with a little, unobserved movement of tenderness. She glanced up at him, the soft color creeping into her face, and for a mo ment these two seemed to dwell alone in their own kingdom, the kingdom of love, forgetful of the gay scene sur rounding them. How long a time it will appear," he whispered, "and yet actually it is but a few days now, and then our se parate lives will be united, woven to gether in one single strand." Robert Strode's face was very ten der, his strong, clean-cut face alight with ardent feeling—good for the wo man who loved him to see. _ Her own face w...
Lost Property. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
Lost Property. A taxi-driver was standing off a cab-rank in London when a special constable went up to him and said: "Look here, my man, you must get into position on the rank." "And who are you?" was th3 ques tion. "I'm a special constable," answer ed the traffic director, displaying his badge. "Oh, you're the very bloke I'm look ing for. Why, about 'art an hour ago a passenger went off and left a bloom in* kid on the seat of my cab; now what am I to do about it?" "Wait a minute—wait a minute," re plied the special, turning up his note book. "Ah, here it is. Rule 49—Pro perty found in cabs must be taken to the nearest police-station, and if not claimed in six months it becomes the property of the finder."

Not Appreciated. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
Not Appreciated. A commercial for a well-known firm secured an order xor £1000 in the West of England, and, as it was not duly acknowledged, wrote a letter to the firm, calling special attention to it and saying: "I thought you would consider such an order a feather in my cap." In reply he received this note from his principal: "We have filed your order, and en close for your cap the one feather you require." After about a fortnight came an other letter from the firm: '"The peo ple who gave you the £1000 order have failed, and we lose our goods. We have this day sent you a bagful of feathers for you to fly home with, as we 3o not want you out on the road for as any more "
A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. 534lbs. Fat in a Year. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. 534lbs. Fat in a Year. The owner of Lady Peggy (Mr. E. Griffiths, of Honey field Jersey Farm, .New Plymouth, N.Z.) always expected a good account of the heifer, and has oeen well rewarded for placing her un der the Government semi-official test for the past season. In detailed month ly record of her work a remarkable uniformity is seen. She produced as much fat during the-last months as during the first, and ior the whole period the average test was 6.51. The total of 5341bs. fat in the year is a line performance, and places her at the top of the . list of semi-ofiicially tested heifers starting their test when under two years of age in Australasia. Lady Peggy had the misfortune to slip her calf when 1 year 311 days old, and started her test under this serious dis ability. The fact that she was milked by seven different milkers during the test did not help her production, and by carrying a calf during l1/* months of the test she added further great ness to her...
X-BAYS FOR STAMMERERS. A Successful Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
X-BAYS FOR STAMMERERS. A Successful Cure. That distressing complaint stam mering is now receiving special at tention at St. Thomas' Hospital, Lon don. In former years the work of combating stammering was for the most part confined to home treat ment; but what is called a speech clinic has now been established as part of the children's out-patients' de partment of St. Thomas' Hospital, where cases are specially treated. Under the superintendence of a highly-qualified specialist, children who suffer from stammering are treated twice a week in what are known as instructional classes. Cases are diagnosed and classified by the help of the X-rays, which frequently disclose the imperfect character of the respiratory movements which are the chief cause of stammering. Some children are found to stammer be cause of defective chest formation, others because of the ignorance, ne glect, or example of their parents,, and others on account of nervous ness. In the first stages of the treatment a ch...
Surprise for Samuel. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
Surprise for Samuel. "Clara!" tie exclaimed, laying Ms hand upon his cardiac region, "I have long looked forward to this opportun ity to tell you that I love you with all the ardor of a nature free from guile and duplicity. Say the little word, Clara, which shall make me the hap piest of men. Or, if your maiden mo desty seals your ruby lips, give me some little keepsake which shall mute ly say that my love is returned, and which shall be a constant reminder of this my hour of happiness. Stay, let it be one of your golden tresses, just one little lock of your golden hair." Clara blushed, and, seeing that Sam uel took up the scissors from the table, she murmured: — "Nay, Samuel, never mind the scis sors; here it is" (and she removed a flowing switch); "take it. It cost me 40s.; but such love as yours is worth more than that."
THE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 October 1915
THE PUBLIC MEETING. After the tea a large congregation assem- bled in the church for the public meeting, over which the Rev. R. L. Seed presided. The congregation sang heartily that grand old hymn, " O for a Thousand Tongues," to the tune Nativity. It was indeed a song of praise, after which the Rev. H. Saloway offered prayer. The choir then most effect- ively rendered the anthem, " Break Forth into Joy," and were highly applauded. The Chairman then proceeded with a de- scription of the early and subsequent history of the church and Sunday school, which had really been founded at Gemini in 1862. The congregations soon became so large that it was decided to erect a larger church, and the present church was built, being opened on the 22nd March, 1861. The Rev. Joseph &nbsp; Dare (afterwards Dr Dare) conducted the opening service, selecting as his text the words, " In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matt.. 28, 19), and preaching to a crowded cong...
SALT FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 October 1915
SALT FOR COWS. Cows that are good producers use approximately three ounces of salt per day; and that dairy cattle should have salt is . one of the very important questions many of us do not under stand, and therefore neglect, writes a Canadian dairy farmer. All ani mals which consume large quantities of vegetable matter require salt. Salt is required to expel the excess of potash from the animal body which is taken in with the vegetable food. Cows which do not get sufficient salt gradually change to a condition of low vitality, indicated by rough coat, which results in a final breakdown. If salt is supplied when in this condition, recovery is possible. There is no question that salt is absolutely essential to the preserva tion of the health of milk-producing herds, while the expense of salting cows is so trifling that it cannot be used as an excuse for not attending to such a weighty consideration.
THE POULTRY YARD. SEASONABLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 October 1915
THE POULTRY YARD. SEASONABLE HINTS. To be successful in raising chickens it is absolutely necessary to have healthy and vigorous breeding stock, for to weak parents lack of vigor in the newly-hatched chicks can,' in many instances, be traced. Only the most vigorous and the best-grown birds should be allowed to enter the breeding pen. Each bird should be lull of life and energy, and quite free from any deformity. It is generally acknowledged that yearling hens make better breeders than pullets. Yearling hens are more mature. They do not lay so many eggs during the early winter, and consequently do not reduce their vitality so much before the breeding season. Vigorous two-year-old hens are often useful in the breeding pen. It is essential to give the hens the best care possible. Provide large runs for them, and on no account must they be forced for heavy egg produc tion. Good and bad layers are found in all breeds, and good laying is the re sult of selection. Most poultry-keepers usua...

CHAPTER XXVI. Hot-Foot Across Europe. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 October 1915
CHAPTER XXVI. Hot-Foot Across Europe. By Lola's attitude I "became more 1 than ever mystified. I tried to induce her to tell me the exact position of affairs, but she seemed far too nervous and un strung. The fact that Craig had found out her hiding-place seemed- to cause her the most breathless anx iety. That he knew some guilty secret of hers seemed plain. , It was eleven o'clock before I rose to go, after begging her many times in vain to tell me the truth. I felt confident that she could reveal the strange mystery of Cromer, yet she steadfastly refused. "You surely see, Lola, that we are both in serious peril," I said^ stand ing before the chair upon which she had sunk in deep dejection. "These daring, unscrupulous people must, sooner or later, make a fatal attack upon us, if we do not deliver our > blow against them. To invoke the | aid or protection of tne police is use-1 less. They set all authority at defi-1 ance, for they are wealthy, and the ramifications of their socie...

The Place of Dragons Bv WILLIAM LE QUEUX. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXV. Is More Mysterious. I stood there aghast, staggered, open-mouthed. The man was walking slowly to wards the house whence issued the gay chanson, the house where, in the •rreat bav window, sh-one a bright light across the tiny strip of lawn which separated it from the roadway. I watched birn likG a man in a dream. As he approached the house he trod lightly on tip-toe, unaware of my presence behind the bushes. In a "flash the recollections of that strange affair by the North Sea, in Prom or, recurred to me. I remem bered that green-painted seat upon (he cliff, where the coast-guard, in the early dawn, had found him lying dead, of bis strange disguise, and of the coroner's inquiry which followed. I remembered, too, all too well, the puzzling incidents which followed; the presence of the notorious Jean jean in that quiet little cliff-re...

Since the outbreak of war 165,964 men have been enrolled in Australia for service with the Expeditionary Forces. Nearly 96,000 have been sent abroad, and close on 70,000 are in training in Australia.
