FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 31 October 1913
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES I guess I can put in a fair claim to having Hg.lited on the Absolute Last Word in juror'e sagacity. Twelve of us had been engaged in hearing a charge of larceny, from a dwelling. The Sagacious One'and I had held out for nearly two hours against our ten opponents', who wei;e in favor of an acquittal. I had lharangued our ad versaries at grsat length, but, in spite of my most persistent entreaties, was unable to induce my comrade to utter anything more tha-n a monosyllable. The result was disagreement. I se lected my friend as the only fit per son in the crowd to accompany me from the court to the nearest tea rooms. During the a troll, talk natur ally reverted to the "ease," and the ten mugs with whom we had been clo seted. "I think I put it plainly enough to them, eh?" I ventured. "Why, dam mit, ths evidence was clear enough, and the summing-up was all against the poor devil." "Oh, yes, you didn't do bad," he returned; "but I never take much notice o' the bloomm'...

Boy Accidentally Shoots His Aunt. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 31 October 1913
Boy ilccidentally Shoots His Aunt. A sad shooting tragedy occur red at Lockhart on Monday last, when a young lad named Spiro Katsoulis son of Mr N. Katsoulis of that town, accidentally shot his aunt, Mrs Margaret Veneris, dead with a breech loading gun. It appears, from the evidence given at the inquest that John Veneris, husband of the deceased, had been out shooting rabbits and in his hurry in getting inside the house from the dust storm, had forgotten to take the cartridge out of the gun. The boy picked up the fire arm, and thinking it was not loaded, pointed it at the doorway and pulled the trigger. The gun went off, and his aunt, who was sitting near the door rose up at the .time, and received the full charge in her side. She fell to the floor an"d never spoke after wards. Dr Davies was immedi ately sent for, but medical aid was ■of no avail, as the unfortunate woman,had been killed instantly. Much sympathy is expressed for tlie relatives of the deceased.

CHAPTER XVII. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 31 October 1913
CHAPTER XVII. Out of two hundred and forty-five letters Sibstone considered that about thirty only were suitable to his pur pose; when he came to interview them, even the .writers of these proved disappointing. Among them was the cheerful blighter who appears to have tried every profession and to have ex tracted a slowing testimonial out of each and nothing else. There was the . bluff, you-leave-it-to-me applicant, who would settle the affairs of his client .with guste of diplomatic wind; hut thiB kind of ne'er-do-well soon be came a less self-eufficlent person in the presence of SibBtone'e gloomy per sonality. Then there was the 'Varsity boy, who considered that he was con ferring a favor on Mr. SibBtone by applying for the post. There was that creature who is ever ready to tackle anything, with out reflection. He always answers cheerfully in the aflirma.Uve, even when asked to do impossible things; he backs up the affirmative by recapi tulating the still more impossible things he ...

Confidential agents, private detectives, clerks with port folios of testimonials need not ap ply to E.S., Box 332, Willings, 125 Strand." That was Sibstone'e advertisement;.. you will remarks the initials, E.S. There can be no doubt about its be ing the one Slbstone inserted. He received exactly two hundred and forty-five replies, and irrefutable proof exists that Messrs, Willings, becoming suspicious, opened one or two of the letters. Go to the office of Willings, in the. Strand, and ask the pleasant-spoken, little, grey-hair ed, grey-hearded man who officiates behind the counter if he remembers the occasion. ...

BALDNESS CURED BY FREEZING. Can baldness bo cured by cold at mospheric treatment? This Is a ques-1 Hon that haB been occupying the at tention of scientists'. . ; Sir Ernest -Shackleton, tho explorer,! laid streaB upon the fact that many of the men' in Ills expedition before their sojourn In the Antarctic regions were remarkable for tho thinness of their locks.
