The Double Clionce, BY J. S. FLETCHER, Author of "The GoMcn Hope," &c. (Published by Special Arrangement.) CU.VTKIU' XX. In the whole course of his pro fessional carecr Inspector Cortelyou had very seldom lost his temper and allowed himself to be startled out of an equanimity which came naturally to liini, but. when he fairly under- | stood I'errett's news, and grasped the fact that Stead had made good j his escape, he became so angry that his subordinate felt thankful that he j himself was not to blame. j "Knocked down the man who car- j ried in his dinner, locked the cell I door on him, and walked quietly i out!" vociferated the little man. "Fools—asses—idiots! Where had they all gone to?" "Don't know, sir," answered , Pcrrett, with a discreet cough. "I j heard something about them being i awav at their dinners—they do things so queerly in these country | places, sir." "Dinners'." exclaimed the inspec- \ tor, with deep scorn.

THE UPAS TREE. Tho bark of the upas tree of Java is over an inch thick, and full of strong juice, tho merest' touch of which upon tho skin produces a most painful and irritating rash. Tho Java natives use this juice for getting rid of their enemies. To satisfy a privat-e revenge, they hide a bowl of it in the room of , a sleeper, and by the morning the victim has succumbed to its cvil'effGcts. The fluid gives off a most poisonous gas, which produeos stupor, and finally death.

THE AZTEC IDOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 March 1914

THE AZTEC IDOLS. Mexico is one of the oldest coun tries in the world, and one of the most unquiet. According: to the Mexican legend, the ancestors of this people came from Asia by a land-bridge over the Behring Straits (look at the map please 1), and originally lived in TaT tary. Consequently many who have tried to handle the Mexicans since have discovered that they have caught I a Tartar. But there came a time when the ancient race settled down to a great and placid civilisation, and built" great temples, and worshipped great gods, besides collecting great stores of gold and gems. While doing so they lost their warlike power; and when Cortes, the great Spanish .filibuster discovered them they were unable to resist him, especially as he had brought horses, | which completely disconcerted them. So, as perhaps every schoolboy knows, the ancient races of Mexico were conquered, plundered and en slaved; and the Aztecs dwindled and I dwindled till they disappeared. A few are still living ...

RANDOM READINGS. HOW MUCH SLEEP? [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 March 1914

RANDOM READINGS. .// HOW MUCH SLEEP? When a man is in perfcct health he wakes up naturally when lie lias had enough sleep. What is enough sleep is entirely a matter of habit and of individuality. One man may have had enough when lie has slept four hours. It is not well for a man who is in the habit of sleeping eight or nine hours to cut down his night's rest suddenly to four or five. The healthy man wakes up ready to get up, ready to leave his bed. This is liccause he is too full of vigour to be idle. The man in perfect health must be active. But his awakening need not tieccssarily he sudden. Many men wake up gradually. Such an awakening is pleasant, and is often accompanied by the greatest mental activity of the day. Poets have found themselves composing their most beautiful of verses, musicians imagining tlie love liest of melodies, when in that condi tion of perfect physical rest, with the mind refreshed by a night of sleep. Nor has the healthy man any recollections of his night....

FORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 March 1914

FORKS. "Fingers wore made before forks," says an old adage, although few people know how very modern the fork really is. Compared to it, the knife and spoon are patriarchal. "It is not much raoro than 300 years since the fork became a common object to the table,*' says an antiquary, "and oven to-day I can point you to little customs which sur vive amongst us from the days before forks were used. Think of the paper frills cooks put on joints of meat. Why aro they there? Simply because in ancient times there were no forks, and the host or carver held tho point by the paper while ho carved it. At old fashioned boardiug-scbools it was tho custom to make tho pupils each bring their own knife, fork, and spoon. This is simply a relic of ancient days when, at a feast, every man used his own personal knife. When people got daintier, and used spoon and fork, theso also were added to tho personal equipment, every guest bringing bis own."
