CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
CYCLING. For years motorists in England liave suffered at the hands of the police on account of traps, alleged noise and other charges. To-day, side by side, drinking at the same bar,'fettling at the same table, mo toristF and police are "all out" for their country's welfare. Tlnra is not a trap on' the load now. The ' black list is dead, and the cut-out regulation is-a name rather than a . law,, attfl-'i'f. the war has done no other good , in England, it has at least seived to combine motorists and Ihe aulhcrities lo such an ex tent that it is highly improbable the old trapping posecution will ever bo renewed. The English War Office has taken over the entire out lit of several bf the large motor cycle manufacturers for use with its expeditionary forces on the continent, and it is evident that the motor cycle is no longer regarded as a luxury, for they have become part, and a valuable part of the-business of war. The pay of English motor cyclists on active service-has been fixed at ...

OLD SHOES FOR LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
OLD SHOES FOR LUCK. Few people are aware of the origin of the old custom of throwing shoes after a newly married couple. Many people are under the impression that it is done 'for luck," whereas it is merely a corruption of a very old pro-, ceeding, when the bride's father used to hand over a shoe to the bridegroom as a sign that he gave him full posses sion of his daughter. From all time shoes have denoted possession—as the old expression of "stepping into his shoes" shows. When a Bedouin chief is dying, one of his last acts is to hand over to his eldest son, or whoever his heir mar be, his shoes as a token of his taking his place. In many Eastern cities a pair of shoes placed outside a shut door mean that no one dare enter, and in Benares if a' woman wishes to turn her atten tion from her market bag for a mo ment, she makes sure that it will be untouched by leaving her shoes by it. Even in the Bible the shoe is used as a symbol of possession, for Ruth's relative handed over a shoe ...
The Place to Look. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
The Place to Look. Madame Sarah Grand, like many other literary people, is very absent minded, so much so, in fact, that the following story might be . doubted were it not told by a friend of herB. This lady one day called on the popular authoress and found her greatly agitated, with a large book open before her. "What is the' matter?" asked the caller, anxiously. "Oh, I've lost my pen," replied Ma dame Grand, "and I must find it in order to finish my story so that I can catch the post." Then she paused, and began to laugh. "Why," she exclaimed, apologetical ly, "I believe I was looking for it among the 'p'b* in the dictionary!"
THE HOUR OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
THE HOUR OF DEATH. Most people will tell you that moru persons die between the hours of mid night and five in the morning than at any other time, but this is a great mis take, though one which is believed in by doctors as well as the general pub lic. Recently, in one of the big hospi tals, statistics were collected of the hour at which patients died. If there had been any truth in the generally accepted belief that most people die in the early hours these statistics would have shown it, for the deaths of no fewer than 15,000 patients were re corded. It was found, indeed, that more peo ple died between six in the morning and six at night than during the other twelve hours of the day. Again, from two to six in the afternoon there -were sixty-six more deaths than from two to six in the morning. In the cases of people suffering from chronic diseases the greatest number died at four o'clock in the afternoon, closely followed by two and five in the afternoon. Six o'clock in the morning, w...
FALL OF THE CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
fall of the cards. When Ennerdale rose to depart with the last batch of guests, Johnson laid a hand on his shoulder and said in an undertone— "Don't go yet; I've something to sa> to you." The two men looked at one another. Piercing interrogation coupled wiih slight inquietude was expressed in En nerdale's face. He hesitated; tlie.i his white teeth showed in a faint, half disdainful smile, and he nodded assent. The clashing of the garden gate and the sound of the hall door closing were followed by Mrs. Johnson's reap pearance. She fluttered into this room, Mushed and radiant. The two men were standing by the window, which had been flung open to admit the cool night air. Johnson leaned against the frame and gazed out into the darkness. "Theie, thank goodness, they're ail gone!" she said, with a little sigh oC relief. "Your guests would scarcely fe^sl themselves complimented if they heard you," said Ennerdale. in Ills grave fashion. "Probably not, but the boredom of entertaining peo...
ON THE L. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
ON THE L. By W. B. BLAKE. Riding down-town on the elevated train, Jerome felt more sharply than ever how like one day was to another. The alarm clock awakened him—if not his own, then the next door lod ger's, that went off twenty minutes before. He knew the voice ol his neighbor's clock—but not his vox liu mana. After the alarm clock and dressing, and a snatch of breakfast in his room, it was a plunge into the streets. They were cold and grey in winter, tlioso streets; in summer, tepid, stale. After wards, the elevated railway for forty minutes befoie he reached the whole sale paper house where he was one of a dozen clerks—at the bottom of the proverbial ladder. When he had "nailed" that position how big the salary looked to him! Not only its inelasticity was impressive. By scrap ing, he just saved four dollars a week. Save he did, however, as every lonely man in a great city must try to da. Such as he find lil'e in the maelstrom too terrifying and too unfriendly, un less they can t...
OVERCOME BY HEAT, [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
OVERCOME BY HEAT, Horses are sometimes overcome by heat, and suffer much the same way that men do. They are never able to do quite a full day's work in hot weather after such an attack, hut improvement should follow appropri ate treatment. Work the horse in the cool of the morning and evening. Shade its head when at work, and allow drinking water often when working. Do not give any bulky feed at noon or work it soon after a meal. Darken and screen the stable. Put a sheet on the horse's body when working in the sun.

After the curtains had been drawn, and all was quiet in the car, thoBe near the couple heard the woman lean over and whisper to her husband; "Peter, dear, I hava found at last what I have looked for so many yearB." "What's that?' Inquired the bride groom. "A man under my 'bed." Watering the cowb once a day with a hurried sip will not do. They need all they can get. . .

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXVII. Hard Pressed. We must now return to Dr. Gil- I ray, whom we loft outside Here path's former lodgings, where he had been to seek the inventor, only to be told that he had gone away, leaving no address. Giiray turned away from Here path's flat with a foreboding o£ com ing trouble. He would have found it difficult to account for this, but there It was. And Dauiel Harley would not let this matter drop on the mere assurance that Herepath was not to be found. Harley was a hard man to ^ deal with. He did not appear to know his own mind for two days to _ getlier. Take this very matter of -Herepath's, for instance.
