CROSS-CHANNEL HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
CROSS-CHANNEL HUMOR. You can laugh when trouble hits you, You can smile when clouds appear. You can grin when worry "gits you," And when disappointment's near; You can laugh when rain is falling, If you are a cheerful soul, But you cannot do much laughing When the boat begins to roll. You can bear up under sorrow, You can calmly shoulder woe; And perhaps no sign of anguish Will your visage ever show; You may hide all sign of weakness. Though your hopes are in the ditch; Gut you cannot hide your feelings When the boat begins to pitch. Yet the cheer-up poet tells you To present a cheerful face, And to smile at all your troubles, And to never show a trace Of the petty griefs that fret you, But y u'd lose your self-control, And you will not smile, I'll bet you, When the boat begins to roll.

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
CHAPTER XXI. So Daiiiel Harley was Brigden's mysterious client. Herepath was not in the least surprised to make the discovery. Enid had more or less prepared him for it. rie recalled lier strange agitation at tho mention of Oi'igdat.'B -'ixtiatv; This was the con spiracy she hinted at, and he could see her reasons now for not being p'ainer with him. It was one more turn in the maze of mystery in which Enid's life was involved, and she had not been more explicit because she was afraid of her father's part in it. He could not hear what those men were saying. They were muttering to themselves in whispers; they seemed to be dissatisfied about some thing. Herepath smiled grimly. They should have much greater cause for dissatisfaction before he had finished with them. He came forward and addressed them by name. "This is quite an unexpected plea sure, gentlemen," he said. "Good evening, Mr. Brigden. Mr. Harley, ) am delighted to see you here. But just one question. How did you get here, an...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTE XX. Smash! Herepath determined that Blanche should not know—at least, not yet— of his terrible misfortune. There was 110 need to spoil her life with his trou bles. It would be good at any rate to know that she was provided for. Harold Gay was a fine fellow, who had had more than his share of mis fortunes, most of which had been made for him by other people. Doubt less he would be over from Camford in a day or two, and then all the news could be discussed. But Gay was over already. Here path found him there when he got home. He seemed to fill the little sit tiug-room in the flat—a long, lean, bronzed man, ha"rd as nails, and clear of eye as a child. Not a handsome man, perhaps, but good to look upon, and a face that invited confidence at the first glance. "Well, here you are, old man," he cried with a hand-grip that made Geof frey winc...

Rising to the Occasion. Private Pat O'Flynn, one of a r'atigue party, had just finished taking in the coloncl's luggage when, that omnipotent person's lady ques tioning him, he made it appear that lie had been the only one engaged in the work. "You must be quite exhausted," she cried. "What will you have to drink—a glass of sherry, a glass of port, or some hot rum?" "Why, plaze yet ladyship," answered Pat, as a mark of decorum, "I'm not thirsty." "That may be," rejoined her lady ship; "but a man of my husband's distinguished regiment rendering a service must drink with me." "Sure, in that case, ycr honoress," replied 'Pat, "it's rude to be back ward, so I'll have the sherry now. and will be drinking the port while ycr honoress is mixing the rum."
CHAPTER XXII. A Check. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
CHAPTER XXII. A Check. Daniel Harley, with Brigden by his side, shuffled along the road mutter ing angrily to himself, eager to find anybody upon whom to put the blame for this unexpected reverse. He had been beaten by an honest man in a perfectly legitimate way, and this fact angered the old rogue more than the loss of his money. He had looked for ward to a fortune from the great in vention, and had made up his avari cious mind that Geoffrey Herepath should benefit nothing by it, and here in a moment the whole thing had slip ped through his fingers. Oh, some body should pay dearly for this wretched fiasco. "It's rather awkward," Brigden ven tured at last, Somewhat nervously. "Who would have guessed that Here path would show fight like that?" "You should have guessed it," Har ley grunted wrathfully. "Nobo'dy but an idiot would have put his head into a trap like that. If I hadn't been de luded into going to Long Acre every thing would have gone right." "But you wanted to go to Long A...
PREPARATION OF TALLOW FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
i PREPARATION OF TALLOW FOR MARKET. Cleanliness should be the predom inating feature in preparing tallow for market. This is essential, in the first place, to secure a good color, and the fat should not be allowed to go rancid. The tallow should be stirred in the casks as it is poured in, as this will ensure a thorough mixing of the oils and solids. Generally speaking, it is customary to boil the fat for about six hours, and care has to bo taken to avoid streaks of dust or dregs. The casks must be weighed ' before filling and the weight marked I on the head. Then, ufter filling it is ] necessary to mark the gross weight ' of cask and tallow, and also the brand ' and number. It is always advisable I to use sound casks, either new or good ' secondhand, and to see that all the hoops are tightly driven, also that nails are driven through the hoops. The custom of selling tallow by auction may not be well known. Samples are drawn in the selling brokers stores, and those of each lot placed...

Evened Up. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
Evened Up. "Before I agree to undertake your defence," said the eminent criminal lawyer who had 'been called in, "you will have-to be perfectly frank witii mc and tell me the whole truth. Did you embezzle the twenty thousand pounds you are accused of having taken?" "Yes, sir," replied the accused man. "I'll not attempt to conceal the. fact from you. I stole every penny of it." "IIow much of it have you still?" "It's all gone but about a coup'.e of guineas." "Young man," said the eminent lawyer, buttoning his coat about him and putting on his gloves, "you d better plead guilty and throw your self 011 the mercy of the Court." "I'll do it if you say so, sir. What arc you going to charge me for the advice?" "Two guineas." It takes a good .deal of grief to kill a woman after she has got a dia mond necklace.

SUCCESSFUL DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
SUCCESSFUL DAIRYING. According to Mr. P. C. Lucas, an ex perienced dairy farmer, tlie three fundamentals to successful dairying are the man,..the herd and the farm. Anyone who does but even a meagre amount of travelling, and does this small amount with open eyes, is at once Impressed with the signs of pros perity upon entering a dairy section. And upon closcr inspection of the farms in that section he must hd im pressed with the varying degrees o£ prosperity, many of the dairymen so curing a greater return from a small herd than a majority of the others se cure from large and apparently equal ly good herds: And for all this there is ample reason. Still closer inspection will always show a lack of one or more of the three fundamental factors making for success in dairying—either ihe man, the herd or the farm. They are the three links which determine iuecess. The Man. if I were to name the all in all im portant item on the dairy farm, it would unquestionably be the dairy farmer himsel...
