Fatty hail gono to Brighton after ths great misfortune, and she had the tidings there. When they told her that she had become a rich wo man—one of the richest in the coun try—she gavo way to hysterical tears, and seemed to insinuate that Heres ford hod done her a wrong in dying at all. The lie which she had told about the journey to New York should have been repeated by him on his deathbed out of simple loyalty to a woman. After ail there had been no wrong, and why should not he have done it? A woman's logic could not under»tand. Patty had cried for two days after Leila went to prison. Frequent tuarrels with her landlady and dramatic outbursts, in which sho declared that she would tear down the prison wails with her own "poor fingers," varied the monotony of tears and did her health much good. A promise to go Immediately to see her "dearest darling" whom a villain had sent to gaol was not fulfilled, partly because Leila herself hated scenes and did not wish it; partly be causo Patty...

"FIAT LUX I" Electric Light Installation at Northcote. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 30 May 1914

! " FIAT LUX I" Electric Light Installation at Northcote. In addition to being memorable on account of the city proclamation, Wed nesday last is to ho marked with a white stone as being the occasion of the illum ination of Northcote by electricity. The honors of the occasion fell to the lot of the Mayoress, who, from the singe of the town hall, in the presence of a large assemblage, by the mere pus)) of a button, caused lights to blaze through out all the streets in the area, the front of the town hall to become a fairy maze of color and brightness, and the interior of the hall to bring the guests to their feet in pleased surprise—yet some people say they cannot believe in miracles! True, in this itstance, miles of wires may be traced, but these merely correspond to holes bored through the non-conducting air. What is it that passes through these iron holes? Science replies "We do not j know "—nor does anyone else, yet the ' fact that electric lighting has become nn everyday event al...
