THE FALKLAND ISLANDS [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
rHE FALKLAND ISLANDS f By F. A, Newman. The sinking of the German cruisers ■Scharnhorst, Gsneisenau, Leipsig and Nuernberg by the British Squadron inder Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Sturdee off the Falkland Islands, has wrought into prominence a group of slets which to most people have been ;erra incognita. Until the publication of the news mnouncing the British victory which las so adequately avenged the Chil an disaster, how many grown-ups jould have correctly located the Falk-. lands? Schoolboys anu girls would, 10 doubt, have been able to put their elders right, but the fact remains :hat the inhabitants of this strange ;roup, if not "the world forgetting," have almost been "by the world for got." The islands lie about 250 miles east :>f the southernmost portion of Pata gonia, and N.E. of Cape Horn; or, more correctly speaking, in latitude 51 deg. to 52.31 deg. south, and long itude 57.40 deg. to 61.20 deg. west. In such an out-of-the-way corner of the world, with a somewhat inh...
A Fellow-Sufferer. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
A Fellow-Sufferer. He was a long-suffering traveller on one of the railway lines, and com plained bitterly to the guard about the lateness of the train and the ir regularity of the service. The guard began defending the company. "I've been on this here line, sir," said he, "upwards of eight years, and " "Have you, indeed?" interrupted the traveller, sympathetically. "At what station did you get on?" Young men sow wild oats and old ones grow sage.
The Clergyman Knew. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
The Clergyman Knew, Here is a good and true one of Kitchener's Army. During the recent heavy rains the men returned one evening from a route march to find their tents inches deep in water. They were disconsolately surveying the scene when the vicar of the adjacent village hustled up and offered the use of his church as temporary sleep ing quarters. The commanding offi cer thanked him, but remarked that he hardly liked the idea of using a sacred edifice for that purpose. "My dear sir," replied the good-natured cleric, "pray have no scruples on that point—not one of my parishioners ever has!"
The Farmer and the Phrenologist. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
The Farmer and the Phrenologist. A Southern man tells of an inno cent farmer who once sought out a phrenologist and asked that his "bumps be read." In revealing to the farmer his tem perament as shown by the aforesaid bumps, the professor said: "Your tastes are the simple, home ly ones of the farmer. You are a farmer, are you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, I am I not? You are sadly deficient in j judgment, and have little knowledge of human nature. Your innocent and ' trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or de frauding anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist bought a horse from the innocent farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, it had been made to appear .young and skit tish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £15 for the animal, he contrived without difficulty to unload him on the professor for £40. "It's wonderful," said the...

TO DEVELOP THE BUST. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
10 DTOP THE BUST, ' A simple* safe, aud harmless way in which any lady, no matter how thin of old, can increase her bust developments from 2 to 5 inches in a few weeks is to take 20 grains of phormoid, a standard concentrated food product, just before each meal. For convenience it is best to ask your chemist to supply yoa with the standard phormoid tablets> whioh contain 20 grains each. For a few ahil lings you can get enough to last yocl two weeks, during which time your bust should develop from 1 to 2 inches. Many ladies report 5 inches develop* ment in fotir Weeks, and at ths same time marked improvement in the general health. Phormoid is. pleasant to the taste.

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. A little more than a century ago Britain, with a population of about a third its present size, was maintain ing an immense army, scattered over the world. In ISOSi the local militia alone numbered two hundred thou sand, and these were kept in training' until the peace of 1815. More than half a million men were garrisoned in the United Kingdom, another twenty-two thousand Regulars were fighting in Portugal, while in India, Ceylon, the West Indies, North Amer ica, the Mediterranean, Cape of Good Hope, and Madeira were large bodies of British troops struggling to keep the Empire together. Thirteen hun dred Regulars guarded the convicts ot New South "Wales, and eighteen thousand more were 011 the high seas. And, in spite of a long war, costing one million pounds a week, the coun try managed to redeem millions of unfunded debt and show a brave front to the world, with bread at one shilling and tenpence a loaf.
JUICY TABLE POULTRY. How To Produce Them. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
JUICY TABLE POULTRY. How To Produce Them. There are a good many people who have not had the opportunity of test ing the relative qualities of table fowls which have been raised by the man who knows his business, and the ordinary cockerel killed because the bird was not required for breeding purposes, but the difference is ar rived at by the treatment the grow ing birds receive right from the time they' leave the chicken coop. Those who have been rearing fowls for years do not seem yet to have re alised that only the chickens which have grown quickly ever possess the flavor which results in repeat orders from those who consume the birds. There is a lot of ignorance, too, as to the fattening of the young cocker els for the table, for not only are they run on until they are past the proper age for fleshening, but the results achieved are very disappointing ow ing. to the birds having developed leg muscles, which prevent the full flavor being acquired even by the use of the finest "oods...
SUNSET AND DAWN CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER III. Dolly Torrington slept very late the next morning. She had given special orders that she was not to be roused for any reason, whatever. Margaret, on the contrary, rose un usually early. She had been too rest less. too excited, too nervous to sleep. Towards the dawn she had drop ped into a heavy kind of doze, hut from this she had heen roused with a jerk Something had happened the night before which had shown Mar garet very clearly that the lack of svmpathv between her mother and herself, 'which she had so often de plored, was likely to become even more pronounced. In her charming, frank, girlish fashion she had done her best to help her mother make the ball a great success, very often standing aside to provide partners for other girls. As a matter of fact, though she had been so happy, Margaret wanted to dance. She had longed to have been ...

III. The next morning, when Maldwick called at Lyle's office, the moneylend er invited him to dinner that evening at his private residence. "Then you'll be able to make the acquaintance of your future wife," he said. "Thanks," Maldwick replied; "but I have an important appointment away from London to-day, and don't know exactly when I shall be back. Perhaps it would be as well if—er, Miss Lyle and' I first met at the church." "As you will," Lyle replied indiffer ently. "May I inquire what are Miss Lyle's views on the subject of her marriage to me!1' "My daughter is accustomed to obey me without question," was the harsh reply. Having agreed in listless fashion with the arrangements the money lender suggested, Maldwick left him, and took the first available train to the place which had been the scene of his romance. At the same hour as before he climbed the wall; but Zena was not to be seen. He waited fully half, an hour, in a tumult of suspense. He wondered what had happened to pre v...
HUMORS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
HUMORS OF THE LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is the oratory of counsel at times, but one would have some difficulty, perhaps, in finding a more amusing example of highfalu tin legal language than the following, which is quoted from "Law and Laughter": — "Slander, gentleman," said the learned counsel, in a libel action, "like a boa-constrictor of gigantic size and immeasurable proportions, wraps, the coil of its unwieldy body about" its unfortunate victim, and, heedless of the shrieks of agony that come from the utmost depths of its victim's soul, loud and reverberating as the night thunder that rolls in the I heavens, it finally breaks its unlucky ! neck upon the iron wheel of public opinion; forcing him first to despera tion, then to madness, and finally crushing him in the hideous jaws of mortal death." No less amusing was the address ; of the American Judge Rodgers to a prisoner -who had been convicted in his court in Louisiana. "Prisoner, stand up!" he said. "Mr. Kettles, this cou...
CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
CHAPTER IV. So still did Lady Alicia stand, so frozen was her manner, that the girl's overcharged heart at once realised that something was wrong. She drew away from her mother and trembled a little, and in that mo ment Lady . Alicia became mistress of hersef again. "Why do you rush at me in this ab surdly emotional manner?" she ask ed; "and what nonsense is this you are talking?" Every scrap of color faded out of Margaret Torrington's face. "I thought you had seen daddy," she said. Prom purest, most splen did joy (a joy like the golden glory of a hot sunshine) she felt plunged into an icy atmosphere in which it was difficult to draw breath. "I've only just come in," said Lady Alicia. "I have not seen your father." She rang for her maid, and Mar garet stood trembling with fear and with a sensation of impending sor row, whilst her mother's maid was removing Lady Alicia's hat. Sundry little commands were given to the maid, and Margaret was seemingly ignored. When they were alone again...
No Near Right Yet. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
No Near Richt Yet. Two inmates of a Scotch asylum, working in the garden, decided on an attempt to escape. Watching their opportunity when their keeper was absent, they approached the wall. "Noo, hend doon, Sandy," said the one, "and I'll climb up your shouther to the top, and then I'll gie a hand up tae." Sandy, of course, bent down. Tom, mounting his back, gained the top of the wall and, dropping over on the other side, shouted, as he prepared to make off: "I'm thinking, Sandy, you'll be bet ter bide another fortnicht, for you're no near richt yet."
II. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
II. Blanche Descartes was a tall, sen-1 sitive-looking, pale-faced girl, whose features bore the unmistakable im print of mental trouble. She had mar ried the handsome fascinating French man after a brief engagement, and, though she had nothing to complain of in his treatment of her, she had discovered, too late, that he was un scrupulous, and devoid of any sense of business honor. "Yes, Cuthbert, it's Lucien again," she said wearily, in answer to her brother's query. Maldwick frowned. "Why don't you leave him?" he ask ed, sharply. "He is utterly unworthy of you."' The girl shook her head. "He is my husband," she sairl slow ly, "and—and, despite his faults, I— I love him." "What is it this time?" Maldwick demanded, after a brief silence. "He has been speculating with some of the firm's money, in the hopes of recovering enough to pay what he owes to the moneylenders, and he has lost everything. It—it. amounts to—to, oh! how can I say it?—five thousand pounds! Can you—could you help? ...
THE MONEYLENDER'S DAUGHTER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 February 1915
THE MONEYLENDER'S DAUGHTER. i. Beneath the shadow of a high, moss grown wall Maldwick paused to light a cigarette. A strong breeze swept along the country road, and he had to make three attempts before he ac complished 'his object. A slight sound from above him caused him to stall and look up. He had no idea that anyone was near. His upward glance encountered a lovely, startled face with a pair of wonderful violet eyes, in which laugh ter was swiftly changing to embar rassment. The girl was slim and graceful; her long, ripe-corn hair, not yet done up, was only restrained by a bow of white ribbon from floating over her shoulders in careless profu sion. She had been perched on a bough of a convenient elm on the other side of the wall. . Now, in sudden confu sion, she began to clamber hurriedly down. Maldwick experienced a sense of regret that the wall intervened. He would have liked another glimpse of that charming face. He liovered where he stood, await ing the sound of her light foo...
