THE IDYLL OF DENVER'S GULCH. TELLING OF OPEN SPACES, A GRIM CONSPIRACY, AND A GREAT LOVE. "A girl—a pretty one! Con Itildare, it's a dream! Go on with it!" [ There was some excuse for the: young man's conclusion. A few min utes ago he had been riding under grey skies, over an undulating rlain, with no sign of a living creature save the horse lie bestrode. Now he found himself transported to a country where the air was a dazzling mass of green, yellow and blue light, where a roar of many waters was in his ears, and where a fair, unknown face lean ed over him, and an unknown voice ■ murmured inarticulately but entranc ingly. He closed his eyes, but instantly flashed them open again, shocked at liis own mundane conclusion. "It's an angel!" lie muttered apologetically, j Again his eyes closed, but the lights were vanishing, the. roar subsid- j ing, and the celestial visitant was now speaking intelligibly, witli most unangclic impatience. i "Oh, do wake!

AN OLD MAN'S CRADLE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 5 September 1914
I | AN OLD MAN'S CRADLE. There was a man o£ seventy in1 Paris, named Wallace Superneau, whQ slept in the cradle he was rocked in when a baby. He never slept one night of liis long life in any other bed. The youngest of a family of boys, Wallace retained his place in the cradle as he grew older. He soon be came too tall to lie in it full length, but ho overcame this difficulty by drawing his knees upward. Each night he rested his feet squarely on to the bottom of the cradle, swayed his knees to and fro, and rocked himself to sleep as he did when a small boy. The hab it was formed in babyhood and was never broken.

FODDER EQUIVALENTS. Comparative tables o£ the nutritive value of various foods, and the pro portions of proteids, fats, and carbo hydrates they contain, have long been available for students of human die tetics. That similar tables would be equally valuable to breeders of domes tic animals is obvious- According' to "La Ilevue" (Paris), such tables are now furnished by Prof. .Mallevie, who holds the chair of zootechnology in. the National Agronomic Institute of I France. "For the first time we are in pos session of fodder equivalents. We now have a precise knowledge of the value to horses or cattle of definite' quantities of hay, straw, clover, flax seed cake, and beets, in what mea sure they can be substituted for each other to attain the same result and what economy or other advantage may result from such substitution." .M. Mallevie shows that six pounds of meadow hay give the same alimen tary result as 2 pounds of wheat straw, 2% pounds of wheat bran, 22 pounds of beets, 5M: pound...

CARE AND WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 5 September 1914
CARE AND WORRY. You have heard of Care and Worry— dark visitors, they say, Who stalk about familiar as Hamlet's ghost at play. They come and tarry with you, un bidden and unasked, And flaunt their gaunt arms o'er you —add weight to every task. They watch the rays of sunshine, and guard your open door, Lest Light and Hope may enter and sing the songs of yore. Close friends are Care and Worry, they laugh and dance with glee, And pile the faggots higher at each white lock they see. Tlicy glory in the shadows their black robes lling about, And while the cloud is o'er you they laugh and dance and shout. Tliey ever walk before you, for should they fall behind, Their forms would vanish from you like mist before the wind But over on the other side wait Love and Hope and Joy, .Mother and wife and sister, and little Bob, your boy. The robin sings in the willow and the skylark chants his lay, And flowers blossom about you from the morn till close of day. I'iing back at Care and Worry their bla...

STONE AGE CEMETERY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 5 September 1914
STONE AGE CEMETERY. An important archaeological discov ery is announced in the shape of a burial place of the Stone Age which has just been found by Professor Dall Osso, of Ancona, in the Valle Vi'orata, in the Abruzzi, Central Italy. The bodies are not buried, but are all laid in small cabins containing froni two to eight each, and are rang ed on both sides of these little huts on low platforms sloping towards the centre. With one exception the bodies all rest on one side with the knees drawn up, and it is assumed that the dead were placed in this position to give them the attitude of prayer in their death chamber, for it has been established that the custom of praying on one's knees was already in exist ence in the Stone Age in Egypt.

"Never that to me," he declared, leaning forward a little nearer. "When Joe was taken home—the friend who since hoyliood had been closer than a brother—there was a gap in my life which you and the boy have helped to fill. Eighteen years since the dear chap charged me to look after you, Mary. We managed to straighten things out pretty well, and you've kept going very comfortably. The boy is now twenty-eight, and a fine fellow— Joe, as I knew liim at his age, over again." He noted the change of expression at the mention of the lad, and read be hind it the mother's anxiety. Joe was kicking over the traces. He knew that well enough. The night before he had seen him, fl...
