CHAPTER XXXVI. WHAT VLADIMIR DID. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 19 December 1914

CHAPTER XXXVI. WHAT VLADIMIR DID. A gradual descent was necessary to ensure success while the two com rades were thus lowering the Princess Isolde from the citadel roof. Too slow a pace would prolong the agony while, on the other hand, should they allow the rope to slip through their hands more rapidly than was wise, a disaster of some sort migjit occur. Perhaps in all it took less than a minute to accomplish the business, yet that was the longest aggregation of seconds in the whole lifelong ex perience of Owen Dugdale. When the weight suddenly ceased to drag upon the rope, Dugdale was overjoyed, for he realised that at least the dainty Princess had been safely landed below. She must be given time to disen gage the noose of the rope and stand aside. "You next, little master." Dugdale might have. protested, but he knew too much time had already been spent in crouching upon the roof. So over he went. To an ath letic man the task of descending a rope for thirty odd feet was no ex traor...

TO QUIETEN A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 19 December 1914

TO QUIETEN A HORSE. j Tennyson once arrived at Hasle J Were Station carrying a heavy parcel I of books ; and his own carriage not j having arrived to meet him, he was £lad to accept the offer of a lift. j Going up the steep hills to Black I down, Tennyson, with his character istic consideration for animals, sug gested that they and the books were heavy for the pony to drag They therefore got out and walked for some distance in front of the trap, until suddenly it was discover ed that the books had dropped out. Tennyson was asked to stand by the pony's head while its oivoer went back for the books. These were-found a hundred yards or more down hill, and on his return he found the pony, had been restive. Knowing its dislike to strangers, he wondered how it had been kept Quiet, and was astonished to ^ that this had been effectually accom plished by holding a watch close to the animal's ear. - In the palm of the hand there 2,500 pores to the square inch. > these pores were united end...

the white man and the BAB) | Wbrte men on the Rand, including /I miners, never work as wortoiflii'trorfc in Bng-Jand. It is one of the mrrit ten laws of the reef that a matrwith a white skin must be a "boss" (pro noun ce<1 "baas").

THE FARM. THE MANY USES OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 26 December 1914

THE FARM. the many uses op uhj. From, a, prize esaay read, by G. s Van Nuis at the Short Course exer cises at Rutger's College, New Bruns wick, we glean the following ex tracts on this important topic "All the higher order 0f plants contain lime, and lime is an impor tant factor in the structure of all vertebrates and shell-bearing animals. Our daily food should, therefore, contain somewhat of lime, to provide against natural bone waste. All farm stock, more especially young animals require a daily supply 0f lime in their food to maintain properly or to build up a normal bony framework. "No material lends itself to s0 cheaply purify the air of such build ings as lime, applied to walls and ceilings as, whitewash and to floors as ground limestone. On the walls it gradually dries into a carbonate of lime, which offers a hard, germ resis ting surface. The pulverised lime floor covering is an excellent absor bent, which is easily removed and as easily preserved for future application to ...

CHARLOTTE BRONTE'S "GRAND ERROR." [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 26 December 1914

CHARLOTTE BRONTE'S "GRAND ERROR." A document, said to be the longest letter ever written by Charlotte Bronte,.is dated July 31, 1848, and is addressed to Mr. W. S. Williams, reader in the employ of Messrs. Smith and Elder, who chanced to discover the potentialities of "Jane Eyre." It is apparent in the letter that Charlotte Bronte's identity and that of her two sisters—who wrote "Ag nes Grey" and "Wuthering Heights" —was revealed to Mr. Williams at a j time when she was supposed to have I confided solely in her father, for she I Vrites as follows :— i Permit me to caution jou not to speak 0f my sister when you write to me. ...

PASTURING LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 26 December 1914

PASTURING LUCERNE. That lucerne is not a pasture plant has long been recognised by our far mers, and it is only as a rule indif ferent landlords and rapacious ten ants that take chances on grazing it. Its intimate relation to the mower and the rake is coming to be appre ciated and either as hay or as soil ing crop it finds its highest efficiency. This, however, need not imply that lucerne cannot be successfully grazed. It's rather a question as to how this is done and if certain precautions are followed grazing is not injurious. A primary rule should be not to let stock on lucerne when there is no growth to feed on. A lucerne field should not be a loafing place for stock. Tramping is injurious to the crown and to the soil, as is also the eating of the tender shoots just as they start from the crown. These shoots appeal to the taste of stock, and in eating them, growth is not only stopped, but the older stalks tand leaves are refused. Secondly, keep stock out of lucerne while the soi...

CHAPTER XL. CONCLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 26 December 1914

CHAPTER XL. CONCLUSION. Dugxlale was not alarmed. He re alised that this swoon on the part of the Princess Isolde was not serious, and their first thought must be to get beyond the reach of the treacher ous flood. Vladimir kept t>n as guide — Vladi mir who had done so nobly that Dug dale could never forget it during the remainder of his life—Vladimir, who ( had thought it not unworthy to cast : all he had on earth upon the altar l of friendship. j Such devotion is too rare in this I sordid world not to arouse the deep , •est admiration and gratitude. If j Vladimir were compelled to be an j exile from Russia because of this ! night's work, Dugdale had sworn ; that while he drew breath the brave Cossack would never want for aught that wealth could purchase. I When at length there was no lon , ger any danger, when the fearful tor , rent was many yards below them, ! Owen believed it time that he called a halt in order to attend to his pre cious charge. i So he shouted to the guide, a...

CHAPTER XXXIX. THROUGH PURGATORY TO PARADISE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 26 December 1914

CHAPTER XXXIX. . THROUGH PURGATORY TO PARA DISE. ! It seemed interminable to Dugdale | that awful journej; through the val- j ley, with the seething waters rising | round them like hungry monsters i seeking their prey. j When seconds count for hours, it is plainly manifest that one is living J exceedingly fast. No wonder, then, \ that sometimes a night of horror and I suspense, when life and death trem- j bled in the balance, will whiten hair that had erstwhile been as black as the raven's wing. 1 To Owen it seemed as though the fate of the whole world hung upon the next minute or two, and his uni verse undoubtedly did, since it was bound up in this girl with the golden r tresses, now the sport of the storm. Fortunate, indeed, that he was on the alert against mishap. Suddenly, her horse seemed to put his fore feet into a hole, or else he stumbled over some more than ordinarily dangerous obstruction that lay out of sight under the boiling flood. Down went the beast, and yet not i tqu...
