TO TRANSMIT VISION. rg«-f/: • * v - SIGHT by wireless. v"'-''V.' • cause op unrest. How far the ceaseless advance of science contributes to cause unrest in the social sphere we cannot say. But the disappearance of old land marks ; the intermingling of the world of "reality" and the world • of miracle cannot be without its influence. We have to look a very long way ahead to get beyond the state of universal flux. But we are entitled to believe that every step taken is a step towards the Eter nal Truth. Civilisation, which created privacy, is devouring its child (says " The Times"). The telegraph, quick traf fic, the telephone, have made their breaches of the castle wall; and now comes Dr. Low with the most dead ly siege-piece ever dreamed of. It is useless to argue that no one is compelled to nourish in his bosom the telephone or its more venomous offspring. One cannot live the modern life without the contrivances • of modern life; and they are few who have the strength of mind and n...

WRONG CARD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

WRONG CARD. It was a small railway station. The village was about a mile away. "May I leave this box here for an hour ?" asked the traveller of a por ter. "I want to make a call in the village." "Certainly, sir," replied the por ter ; "but could you give me a card to put on it ?" "I'm afraid I have not got one," replied the traveller. Pulling an old card from his poc ket, the king of hearts, he continued : "This will be a means of identifi cation." "Very good, sir," said the porter. In due time the traveller returned, and was looking about for his box, when he observed the porter comin? towards him, grinning. "My word, sir, that was a good trick." "What was a good trick ?" asked the traveller. * "Why, sir, a gentleman came alonr just after you had gone, took an ace of hearts out of his pocket, and put it on top of your king, and he went of! with your box, sir." Candles will last double the usual time if treated in the following way,: Take each candle by the wiok and give it a good c...

CHAPTER XXX. CONCLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

CHAPTER XXX. CONCLUSION. The operation was ever — a most successful one—but the doctors found J it impossible to bring their patient out of the chloroform. They worked hard and did their utmost—perhaps a little more than they would hare done for any but a millionaire, for, after all, doctors are human, and the almighty dollar is not 'without its attraction for them ; but they failed to bring even a flicker to the eyelids of the rich man, who, like Dives, had enjoyed his £©od things in this life, but like him, he had te lenve for others to enjoy. "Dead !" and the doctors went downstairs to tell Jack the sad news. Heart disease ; they hadn't detected it. There were some kinds that it was impossible to detect. Then thej left the Hall, and Jack went to tell Pat and Mrs. Hetherington. A little while later the blinds were drawn over the windows. the flag was hoisted at half-mast, then the church bells rang a dirge, and all Wynth shay knew that Joshua Hethering ton was dead.

CHAPTER XXIX. THE SECRET OF A LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

CHAPTER XXIX. THE SECRET OF A LIFE. Before Christmas Jack Carvill Het.herington brought his wife home to Inglewood, and never was there n brighter, happier bride than Pat. She seemed to have put the horrors through which she had lived behind her, and to be determined to take the best out of life. In her radiant happiness she was a contrast to Meg who sorrowed deeply for her mother, and all Laurie's loving attention could not quite banish the shadow that rested on her face ; but "as the spring dawned she became a little 7,I*1/ll1ac£; I'm going to London to see a doctor.

"I hope it's nothing much, and that he'll give you something to put you right quickly," replied .Tack, who had noticed that Mr. Hetherington had not looked well for some time.

THE SWEET TOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

"THE SWEET TOOTH. Very many adults, and children with no exception have a pronounced liking for sweets, metaphorically de scribed as having a "sweet tooth." We have our respective preferences, some of us like the flavour of pep permint, and others do not. Choco late is almost universally relished, but to a minority it is as "caviare to the general." Americans have, the sweet tooth in excess of ourselves. They include all varieties of sweets in the generic word "candy." Here is a recipe for making a cer tain candy capable of many varia tions to suit individual taste. In gredients required are : One pound of loaf sugar, one ounce of butter, half a pint of water, flavouring as \ou please. Boil sugar and water for two or three minutes till a soft hall is formed when rolled between the fin ger and thumb ; add the butter, and stir until it is dissolved ; put in the flavouring, remove the stewpan from the fire, and add the sugar by de grees until the misture becomes thick and white ; pour ...

THE ORCHARD. PEAR MITE (PHYTOPTUS PYRI). [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 25 September 1914

THE ORCHARD. k PEAR MITE (PHYTOPTUS PYRI). This tiny mite which is impercep tible to the naked eye, is a source of unlimited annoyance to the pear grtjwer. An examination of trees at tacked by the pest will disclose the fact that many of the young leaves are damaged by small brownish blis ters. These are produced by the in sect, which gnaws its way between the two outer skins of the leaf, and immediately commences to feed and multiply therein. The spots, though small at first, gradually extend, un til finally, owing to several blisters becoming confluent, the whole of the leaf may appear as a blackened blis tery mass. This is brought about by the rapid multiplication of the insects within, which burrow through the tissues, sucking up the juices. A bad infestation is usually followed bv premature shedding, of the foliage, to the ultimate detriment of both the tree and its fruit. Regarding the life history of this ■pest -the late Mr. Crairtorfl -pays "■— "There are two ways in which t...
