THE TRAVELLER in THE TALEGA A novice might not have found much pleasure about the long jour ney in a Russian telega drawn by two horses under the control of a daring Don Cossack driver-a journey that had carried Owen Dugdale, a journalist, artist, and idler, over tho vast steppes, with their feathery grasses, and now brought, him amid the wild gorges of the southern moun tain border of the White Ozar's vast dominions. Dugdalo had enough Irish blood in his veins to lovo moro or less ox citcmcnt, and his main purpose in visiting this domain, upon which a subject of the good Queen had sel dom set eyes, was to discover new objects of -interest- for his- brush and pen, as well as to amuse himself.

CHAPTER III. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 16 October 1914
CHAPTER III. DEEPER INTO THE TOILS. Dugdale had not changed his mind an iota. A dozen things-the exqui site white hands on which valuable rings glowed, the delicate features, the style of her whole attire-these and other evidences told him plainly this strange beauty belonged to the select upper circle of Russia, even that which Is very near to the throne itself. The mystery of it all piqued him. Ho felt somehow as though he had a personal interest in her matters that her enemies were also his foes ; in fact, that she was being Bhame I fully treated by the powers that were in control of qjich affairs as banish ment. This was pretty quick work, and almost took his breath away when be came to reflect upon its nature. I He had prayed for a chance to feel himself aroused from the "doldrums" and behold, the opportunity had ap peared with a vengeance.. Here he was bowling along the mountain road, beading for the next village or town, and seated beside the most fascina ting woman he bad ev...

A NEW CARD GAME. " WOMEN ARE TRUMPS." Tho Inst word in card games is ( "Women Are Trumps" (says the "New York World). Have you tried it ? No ? Well, you will find it simple, absorbing, entertain* ing, instructive. It is played with fifty-two cards, the same number as in the ordinary pack, but there all similitude .ceases. Spades, hearts, clubs, and dia monds are dono away with; into tho discord with them go kings, knaves, and :aces. Only the queens are left, and of these are a* plenty, for this is a suffrage game intended to, advance the cause of votes for women; likewise the ex chequer of the saino-price, one dol lar per pack. And who wants kings, to say no thing of idle knaves, with their well-known pernicious habit of stealing from queens, in a strictly feminine pack. Mrs. John King Van Rensselaer hns mothered the new game ; Phila delphia is its birthplace. The lady is one of the foremost social leaders of the Quaker City ; also an ardent exponent of suftragism.

THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 16 October 1914
THE DAIRY PROPERLY MATURING CHEESE. For several weal® Cheddar cheese. is practically tasteless ; at two moj^ha it is beginning to develop its nutty flavour, and a month' later this is distinct enough to meet the tastes of many consumers. The ren-* not, however, having had a better chance than would be possible with higher proportions of retained whey, the cheese is proportionately more digestible ; and, so far as the con sumer's advantage is concerned, he may use it then without either the effects of indigestibility on the one hand, or of pungency of flavour on the other. For those who- desire, a stronger flavour, it will have to be kept two months more or upwards ; J and if made on correct, lines and- as ! perfectly as it may be from 6ound I milk, it will be at its best from eighteen months to two yearn old. If ] such " longM keeping -is -sought,-. it should be stored, after four months' I age, in a temperature never exceed ing 62 deg. Fahr. nor.falling below. 55 deg. Fahr., with t...
The Best Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 16 October 1914
The Best Letters. A letter that shall be worth keep ing for other than purely practical or sentimental reasons takes., time and that rarest of all kinds of time, loisure. It needs some mind and at least & fraction of a heart. And, abovo'all, two real human bo* ings, and two alone, are essontial. For the correspondence that anybody may road is worth nobody's trouble. The best letters, therefore, are those botween two friends (friends, of course, who may al?o be brothors or mother and son), and probably tho beat of tho best are those hetweon friends of & different sex. That difference is a kind of leaven. It is like a flicker of summer lightning in tho quiet night. It adds the salt of unconscious antagonism, the sweetness of a baffling sympathy. It is a thing of quite extraordinary rotontialities. And so long as love nods his small head over hta arrows, and, for dreaming, for bears to shoot, all is tfell. For love-letters are truly not let tors" at all but lyrics In pr...

Hanged for Signing Four Names. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 16 October 1914
Hanged for Signing' Four Names. People have not always been allow ed the pleasure of having as many names as they wish. Four hun dred years ago not even a middle name was allowed in England. It was illegal. The old English law was (lefmito and admitted of no infraction of its ruling. The only exception made to this regulation was in the case of per sons of Royal rank. If they wish ed, they could boast a middle name, but woe to the person of ordinary rank who was sufficiently unwise or obstinate to insist on having more than two appellations. For the first offence he would likely be tied to a whipping-post and severely lashed. For a second of fenco he would endure some more lasting punishment, perhaps the re moval of his thumbs or his ears, and if he persisted in his stubborn ness he would bo hanged. There is a case on record of a man who insisted on signing four names every time ho wrote his sig nature. He p&Hsed through all the legal stages of punishment until he was finall...
A Remarkable Monk. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 16 October 1914
A Remarkable Monk. June 11, 121)4, is the reputed dato of the death of Roger Bacon a philosopher whose influence on Mediaeval thought was of the first importance. Born of a well-to-do family at Ilchester, Somerset, about 1214, he lived to the age of eighty, in spite of the dangers -which his superior attainments brought upon him, dangers incurred on the one hand from the idea held by the ignorant that he was a magi cian, and on the other by the accu sations brought against bim of heresy by the more lciirned4 but not less bigoted, churchmen. He studied at Oxford and Paris, and entered the Franciscan Order of Friars. He was ejected from Ox ford by the authorities, who attri buted his proficiency in natural science to dealings with tbe Evil One. Thus it was that only dur ing the Papacy of Clement IV., who made his acquaintance in 1299, was Bacon enabled to give his scientific knowledge to the world, for in the days of his early manhood the jealousy of his superiors in the Order he belo...
