Not a Banquet. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
Not a Banquet. A story Mr. Taft tells is about a number of old men who, having been schoolboys together, thought it would be an excellent plan to have a New Year banquet together in memory of old times. The most enthusiastic "old hoy" among them went to the banquet ex pecting to have a pleasant evening talking over schooldays, but he was bitterly disappointed. One man had a troublesome heart, and he would talk of nothing else; another had gout; another had a bad liver; another was worried about his kidneys; another's indigestion mono polised his attention; and so on, each had trouble with some organ or other. When he returned home somebody asked the enthusiastic man how he had enjoyed the banquet. "Banquet!" he exclaimed bitterly. "It wasn't a banquet, it was an organ recital!"
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. A malign passion may be the effect of a disease; if not, it will tend di rectly to produce that disease (says a physician). Avarice, long indulged, destroys the normal balance o£ the brain, and ftt length shrivels it up by concentrating nourishment on the part which is concerned with getting and holding. Outbursts of anger strike at the heart. Many a man has dropped dead in the heat of rage. Moroseness is very effectual in pro ducing disease. It acts specially up on the liver and the digestive organs. The seat of the affections is in the brain. This suffers first; afterwards, in course of time, the organs which il controls. To the vain man 0110 can only ex | tend pity or contempt, writing ol vain-glory, Bacon said: "Glorious (i.e. boastful) men are the scorn of wis&lt; men, the abomination of f00]s, the ido ! of parasites, and the slaves'of theii : own vaunts." But Bacon did not coi. i fuse vain-glory with pride in its bes • sense. i Money can't buy the l...
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
: the poultry yard. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. ] a laying hen requires daily about ( three to four ounces of food, accord ing to size. A bird in a wild state , feeds on all kinds of food, many var , ieties often in a meal, and seldom two meals alike. Hence we seldom see a sickly wild bird. Poultry, if fed long on one kind of food, will soon contract some disease or other, either directly from organs being thrown out of working or from an enfeebled constitution, whereby they catch any thing that may 'be going. Rations for laying hens should be made from bran, pollard, pea-meal, maize-meal, crushed oats, chopped cabbage, chaff ed lucerne, boiled potatoes, and other vegetables, fresh-cut green bone, lean meant, cut green grass, etc. Any four of these may be combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat. About twelve ounces per weight in the morning for ten laying fowls with about one pound to fifteen ounces of grain in the eve...

CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered—say, about five or six weeks old—they will need to he put upon a different food regime, accord ing to the breed. Those that are short of leg and very feathery will need plenty of rice, which, although it does not produce bone, does influ ence feather considerably, not alto gether because of its own nutritive qualities, so much as it does by its ac tion in keeping the blood cool, and thus allowing the other foods given to be assimilated with ease and com fort without the skin become dry and irritated, and thus acting as a deter rent upon feather growth. H stimu lative and nourishing foods are given, the blood becomes over-heated, and the skin is apt to become dry and harsh, and when this is the case the feathers do not break nicely.
VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. Open your bedroom windows wide, or sleep out on the verandah, and you wake up in the morning feeling like a fighting-cock. You have had ventila tion. Open your window an inch and your door an inch, and morning will find you sniffling like an old nag with the heaves. A draught is a thin stream of cold air sneaking in through a warmer body of air without mixing. Ventilation is a body of air that, how ever cold, comes in a bunch, and has volume enough to regulate its own temperature. You might think of these things in regard to your hen house, for a fow. is more susceptible to a draught than any living thing. A fowl's body is a regular little en gine. Did you know that fowls don't sweat? You didn't! Why, they have no sweat glands. A fowl's natural temperature is away above the fever heat o all other living creatures, and that makes a draught of air their death warrant.

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, • ck and Co. Ltd., Loud. and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVII. The Trance Passes. I. Father Dominic, the priest, came to dine at the little hotel and brought the Captain of the garrison with him. There had been no change in Heres ford's condition, he said, and the doc tor did not give them any hope oi better tidings. No man could say when the sleeper would awake— there would hardly be a warning, and life would return capriciously as it had left him. This was all that could be said, and the three nion heard it with much real grief—while to-Hugh it was the most pathetic dis appointment he had known in all his life. Of course, the priest had not been informed of the nature of their mis sion, and he regarded them simply as the sick man's friends who had come across the seas to visit him. Suppos iug an interest which would be natur al, he spoke of Mademoiselle Adelc— as they had been calling her—ami astonish...

II [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
II. A trained nurse bad been sent from Lisbon by the evening train, and she watched the sleeping man at this hour. Hugh saw the light in the window of his bedroom, and it seem ed to say that he still lived. When he rang at the bell, Adele herself an swered him, her fleet foot speaking of her expectancy. She had thought it was the doctor who returned, and she did not conceal her disappoint ment when she discovered? the Eng lish stranger. Hugh made his apologies gracefully and said that he liad come to learn how Mr. Heresford did. His mannet reassured her, and she invited him to come in, explaining that the "ne gro" had gone down to the village and that she was quite alone. A prettier, more helpless creature he had not seen for many a long day —she was just a little school-girl call ed suddenly, to look upon the face of death, he said, and all his pity went out to her. "You have not been at Cintra long, Madam Adele?" She shook her head. "So many days, so many weeks, 1 have forgotten t...
III [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 23 May 1914
Tlie bruit of death stirred the vil lage, and sent many of its poorest people to the doors of the Rock House that night They owed much to the generosity of the rich Ameri can who had dwelt among them so mysteriously, and they paid the last homage with a devotion which was very real. To all these Father Domi nic gave liis blessing when lie left the house with Vaguna at midnight. "He is dead, my friends—God rest his soul." So truly had the child-wife dreamed—so were lier words justi fied. Down at the hotel where the three strangers waited for the tidings, the doctor excused himself with what fair pleas he could, and said that it was a case of Byncope and should have been expected. Tlio terror of the trance might have contributed to it, but the drug had been the active agent. The stricken man would have burst the unseen bonds which robbed him of life, but the effort had culmin ated in death. There could bo no doubt of that—the scalpel answered for it beyond all question. He. whose rich...
