There was mourning in tliu gipsy's oamp, where Oluebell cried her eyes out on a heap of straw, .mourning iu Jiel^raviM, where a girl with a whito late, and griot-sti-ickeu eyes, shut up her sorrow in her heart, like the Spar Uin with hie lox in his breast, and droopod like a flower shut out from the sun. When she died, they said it was ? consumption, and Lady Hilda had al ways bevn delicate; but under lier pil low thoro was a note, so worn that it fell to pieccs-tyrittcn in pencil-only n. few hasty words, and signed, "Your friend, lUymond Duval."

BACTERIA AND LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 11 May 1915

BACTERIA AND LIFE. In the courso of an address given by I'rofessor Emil Westgaard bfore tlie Itoyal Scottish Society of Arts on 'The Influence of Bacteria on Life." the speaker pointed out that the name ol "bacteria" was, in tho minds of most people, associated with a, feeling of danger, or at least, of something un pleasant, owing to the fact that these minute organisms were respousibio for many of tlio mc*>t dreaded diseases, and not infrequently attacked and destroyed their foodstuffs. bacteria had, how ever, other and far greater functions to carry out, and by decomposing and ul timately oxidising organic matter, tliov cleared theso dead substances away, and converted tlioiu into simple inorganic products, which might bo used again by plant*. In this manner tho carbon and nitrogen circulation was complete and the bacteria were thus responsible for what was tho foundation of the world's food supply. During the four wcokB ended 17th April, 1915, 17,107 tons of crude ore were mi...
