THE BOTTLE-MAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

THE BOTTLE-MAKERS. How many people, when they take' up a cruet bottle, or some beautifully colored article of glassware, stop to ask how it was made? - ' In many glassworks, especially those equipped for the manufacture of medicine bottles and similar small goods, the old-fasliioned type of fur nace is still in use. This furnace con sists of a series of smelting-pots, ar ranged symmetrically in a fireproof brick casing, and heated from all sides by direct fire. These pots are charged and used successively. When the glass in any given pot has attained a sufficiently high temperature, each workman on the shift in turn inserts a long hollow iron rod, called a blow-pipe, into the mouth of the pot, and by a peculiar twisting motion extracts a sufficient quantity of the molten metal for the manufacture of a bottle. The glass is inserted into the neck of a mould, and the bottle is blown into the re quired shape. As the bottles, are made they are placed in the "lear," or annealing stove. Th...

NEWSPAPERS AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

NEWSPAPERS AND THE WAR. "A Newspaper in Time of War" is tlie titlo of a very readable article by "An Editor" in the March "Cornhill," which Lets forth how the world-wide struggle in its earlier phases was re garded from the Fleet-street point of view. The writer, in deciding to share iu the expenses of sending 1G war correspondents to France and Belgium, predicted-accurateiy enough, as it turned out-that it was stories they would get, not news. So long1 as Belgium was unconquered the 16 war correspondents had freedom to come and go, and even to telegraph. Up to the fall of Ant werp he received daily many stories. "My 16 gallant ones," continued the editor, "chivied from village to vil lage in Belgium, and, coldly frowned upon by authority in France, kept up their supply of stories with dauotless courage and persistence. Until-as happened a little later-most of them were deported from France as an un bearable nuisance, they kept up the appearance, if not quite the reality, of exhaust...

MORE BOYS AFTER BATTLES. Curious Results of Great Wars. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

MORE BOYS AFTER BATTLES, Curious Results of. Great Wars. Ia England there are, according to the last census, 1068 females to every lOiW males. In other words, women in these islands outnumber men by nearly 1,000,000. In most civilised countries the case is similar. Women are in a consid erable majority. Among the few European exceptions are the Alban ians and Montenegrins. Both these are warlike races, which, even in times of peace, constantly carry arms. In both cases men are slight ly more numerous than women. Among the Afghans and the hill tribes of Northern India, where tribal vendettas are always raging, the case is the same. There, where men are constantly meeting with violent ends, it might well be supposed that women would be in a considerable majority. This is not the fact, for Mother Nature balances matters, and the proportion of boy babies born ex ceeds girl babies by nearly five to four. After the Franco-German War of 1870, it was noticed that in both countries for some ...

THE RUSSIAN LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 June 1915

THE RUSSIAN LEGEND. The editor's reminiscences of the famous legend of the Russians go far to explain why the canard "caught on" so amazingly. "For we were," he says, "just then desperately anx ious about the safety of our great little army, driven struggling upon the forts of Paris. The landing of 60,000 Russians at Ostend seemed just the diversion which strategical justice demanded, and we believed what we desperately wished to be lieve. Again and again I thought I had confirmation of the great Rus sian legend. The railways encour aged it, the censorship encouraged it. True or untrue, we wanted the Ger mans to believe it. Perhaps sone-8 day, when the inner history of this war comes to be written, we shall know what part the Russian legend played in the swerve of Von Kluck from the very outskirts of Paris, which was the turning-point of the western campaign." Doctor: The increasing deafness of your wife is merely an indication of advancing years, and you can tell her that. Husband:...

WEATHER-PROOF. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

WEATHER-PROOF. By Wm. North. To those who are strong on theor ies, winter is a beneficent giant who killa aii the naughty imps, and keeps all the good little people, both ani mal and vegetable, safe. To hear such wiseacres hold forth would lead one to suppose that the elements in this matter were all on the side of man. They talk about the frost kill ing the weeds and the harmful In sects. ll'yes. The leatherjaeket grab, about the gardener's and farmer's worst foe, may literally bo frozen stiff, but is none the worse when the weather changes. The greenfly, so far from being wiped out by a severe winter, is more plentiful than ever because the early shoots of the rosea are apt to be sickly, and therefore an easier prey. There are plenty of other eggs be sides those of the apltidae which sur vive the keenest frost, just as the seeds do which lie on the very surface of the earth. Did you ever know of a scarcity of weeds after a severe winter? If you are a bird fancier have you ever exp...

You Never Can Tell. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

You Never Can Tell. You never can tell what your thoughts will do, In bringing you hate or love, For thoughts are things, and their airy wings Are swift as a carrier dove. They follow the law of the universe Each thing must create its kind And they speed o'er the track to bring you back Whatever went out from your mind. No secret is so insignificant that a woman doesn't consider it worth tell ing. "Speaking of hens," said an Ameri can traveller, "reminds me of an old hen my dad had on a farm in Dakota. She would hatch out anything from a tennis-ball to a lemon. Why, one day she sat on a piece of ice and hatched out two quarts of water!" "That doesn't come up to a club footed hen my old mother once had," said one of his hearers. "They had been feeding her by mistake on saw dust instead of oatmeal. Well, she laid twelve eggs and sat 011 them, and when they were hatched eleven of the chicks had wooden legs and the twelfth was a wood-pecker!" Too many of us are gardeners to our temptati...

HYPNOTISM FOR SHELL SHOCK. CURES BY ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

HYPNOTISM FOR SHELL SHOCK. CURES BY ORDERS. 0*e of the most interesting of the medical discoveries which have re sulted from the tending of the wounded and disabled is the value of hypnotic suggestion in the cure of men broken down under the constant physical and nervous strain of mod ern warfare. In the condition known as shell shock, in which the sufferer, though not actually hit by a shell, has suffer ed from temporary loss of memory, sight, smell, and taste, as the result of concussion, hypnotic suggestion has been tke most potent remedy of the physicians in charge. Describing the treatment of one of these shell-shock cases, a physician at one of the Army hospitals stated: "The patient is seated in a chair and is brought by the operator into a slight degree of hypnosis in the ordin ary way. He is told to clear his mind of all other thoughts and to concentrate on the single subject of his cure. "If, as often happens, his vision is affected, he is told quietly and firmly by the op...

IV. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

A fortnight went by. During that tiino Howard's bride had full power | at Arbutlinot; but she- was very un happy. The servants' curious glances, and their first very natural surprise at her solitary coming, hurt Eleanor like a series ot blows. The days were unutterably long and silent; she yearned even for her busy office life. The security of regular meals, the warmth and spaces of the big rooms, could not appease Eleanor. She knew now that all the luxury she had craved so dearly was nothing with out human companship, and she began to yearn for Howard's step and How ard'<5 voice. To her loneliness was added the sting of an ugly self-re proach. How disloyal, how unkind, she had been to the man who had lav ished so much upon her. How hard she had made it for him to perform what he believed was his duty, i "If only I had acted differently; it oniy " she strode the beautiful rooms in a passion of self-disgust. Could Howard ever forget or forgive those horrible words of hers?...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

When Howard returned an hour later there was no sign of his brother, but a little pencilled note lay on the table. "I know you can't succeed, Howie, thanks all the same. I'm off, for my instincts tell me to vanish. I've got a bit of money; when that's done I'll let you know at Arbuthnot. My idea is to get abroad when the track's ' .clear." ( Howard crushed the paper in his hand. His interview with Wilwood had been one of the worst he had ever experienced. The man showed a vio lent hostility to Jim. The affair should be made public, and detectives set to work. Jim was to suffer the full pen alty of the law. All Howard's rap ture for which Eleanor Raye was re sponsible, left him, an overwhelming nausea and hopelessness came in its place, yet his deep-seated love and pity for Jim, that readiness to sacrifice all for his needs, which had made of him a protecting and selfish guardian, were mingled with his aching con tempt. The fowler had seized his prey, and he, Howard, who would have d...

DISTRICT NEWS. STRATHBOGIE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

DISTRICT NEWS. STRATHB0G1E. On Sunday last Mr. Morsley, the home missionary, had thd mis fortune, whilst closing a gate, to lot his horse bolt with the jinker. After careering for about a mile along tho road it collided with a tree, doing considerable damage to tho jinker, but, fortunately, the horso (a borrowed one), came off unhurt. Mr. Morsley seems very unfortunate, as only three weeks ago one horse ran away with him. This time this one ran awaj- with out him. The newly-formed debating so. ciety at Bolio South held its first meeting on Wednesday last, the subject being: 'Which is tho most bcneficial for a young mail, a bi cycle or a riding horse?' After some good arguments had been put forth on both side, the judge, ill'. Trewin. gave liis verdict in favor of tho bicycle by the narrow ma jority of seven points. The sides were: For the horso, Messrs Hut | cliinson, M. and 0. James; and | that of the bicycle, Messrs ft. ,T.° Kussell, A. Crosbie and E. James. Tho next debate will t...

THE HOME COMING. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 June 1915

j THE HOME COMING. By Yelva Burnett. "Howie, if you could know what this means to me!" Eleanor Raye lifted her head; lie saw how her bronze curls shone from against the snowy curve of her throat, which was to him like the body of a little white dove. Howard drew her. to him. "When, Nell? I can't wait for you too long. You're so sweet." His arms went around her. She felt his breath on her cheelf, the little cramped belt of green beneath their feet, overlooked by those mean win dows with yellow blinds, became for ' him a beautiful, sacred spot; it would have a place in his memory for ever and ever. "Soon, very soon please, my sweet." "There is no reason to wait," she mumbled against his shoulder. "On my side there is no one to ask, no 'one to advise." | . Then at once, Nell uarling. 1 will tget a special licence to-morrow. We will be married quietly in London, and then away to Arbuthnot; you the dear little mistress of the Manor House.
