FALL OF THE CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 Baid in an undertone— "Don't go yet; I've something to say j to you." The two men looked at one another. Piercing interrogation coupled with slight inquietude was expressed In En nerdale's face. He hesitated; the.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 the room, Hushed 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. j "Theie, thank goodness, they're ail gone!" she said, with a little sigh of relief. "Your guests would scarcely fe*l themselves complimented if they heard you," said Ennerdale in hio grave fashion. "Probably not, but the boredom of entertaining people ...
The Place to Look. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 fallowing story might be doubted were it not told by a friend of hers. 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's' in the dictionary!"
THE HOUR OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914
THE HOUR OF DEATH. Most people will tell you that more 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 othev* 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 th&l...
ON THE L. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 of his neighbor's clock—but not his vox hu mana. After the alarm clock and dressin„, and a snatch of breakfast in his room, it was a plunge into the streets. The} were cold and grey in winter, thos'i 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 o a dozen clerks—at the bottom of the proverbial ladder. When lie 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 do. Such as he find life in the maelstrom too .terrifying and too unfriendly, un less they can tak...

SAFETYS ON THE FARM. Some Precautions Worth Taking. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914
SAFETYS ON THE FARM. Some Precautions Worth Taking. By "Doc." Don't throw boards and bos covers that still have nails In them around promiscuously. They have an innate propensity to fall mischief-point up ward. Man or beast may be serious ly Injured by stepping on thom. Your barefoot boy may step on one and have a painful if not fatal wound. Vour horse may be rendered worth less by stepping on such a nail. It takes a little longer to drive the nails out when you rip off a box co ver, but it's worth while. I speak from experience on this point, as 1 have stepped on such a nail, and—it hurts. Don't drive short, stubby stakes in to the ground where anyone may trip over them. Use a stake tall enough to stand up in sight, and If it is to be a permanent marker, paint it white, that it may be seen and shun ned. Don't leave rakes on the ground teeth up. They may spike someone, or you yourself may be the unfortun ate one. Neither should hoes be thrown, down with the edge up. They stn~ng~'fnn...
CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914
CYCLING. In the bombardment of Antwerp, the famous works of the "Minerva" cars have been wrecked. This fac tory was one of the most complete up-to-date in Europe, whilst the car that bears this name is recog nised as being the finest and most successful sleeve-valve type of en gine made. All the leading automo bile factories of Bfcl.i'ium have now been practically destroyed. In France little has been heard as to whether the various motor factories have been wrecked, but one thing is certain, the industry is at a stand still, with the exception of those works employed manufacturing heavy waggons for transport pur poses.
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. How few there are who, in every* (lay life, profit by their own experi ence or their observation ol others, have many excellent rules for A1. Tl?n jJWidod down to us wbloh Wo easily ipfhCt; orr-at- »nr-c»t«>, practise. " For instance, we have often heard the maxim: "A place for everything and everything in Us place," and yet there is hardly one in a thousand who acts upon the suggestion. So much to the contrary, that it is more true of us that we have a place for nothing and nothing in place. Yet, when we think for a moment, we know that this old maxim Is a vastly important one in all departments of life, and can lose none of its import-1 ance from age. The more numerous and varied the departments of business, and tha more diversified our implements of work are, the more important it ia that we carry out the maxim, that we practise the rule. Time is too precious to be wasted, and a great deal of it is spent each day in hunt ing for articles which have been...

OVERCOME BY HEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914
OVERCOME BY HEAT; Horses are sometimes overcome hi 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, but improvement should follow approprl4 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.

"What's that?' .inquired the bride groom. "A man under my 'bed. Watering the cows once a day with a hurried sip will not do. They need all they can get. . .

We must now return to Dr. Gil ray, whom we left outside Here path's former lodgings, where he had been to seek the Inventor, only to be told that ho had gone away, leaving no address. Gilray turned away from Here path's flat with a foreboding of com ing trouble. He would have found It difficult to account for this, but there It was. And Daniel 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.
