CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
CYCLING. In the bombardment of Antwerp, the famotJB works of the " Minerva" cars have been wrecked. This fac tory was one of the moat 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 Belgium 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 waggonB for transport pur poses.
CHAPTER XXIX. A Grave Suspicion. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
• CHAPTER XXIX. A Grave Suspicion. At the end of a week Gay and Herepath were no nearer to a solu tion of the mystery of the missing pictures. It was annoying and dis turbing, and none the less bo be cause they had said nothing to the police. True, Gay had communicated the loss to the solicitors to the es tate, and asked tor instructions, but bad received no satisfactory reply. The matter, he was informed, had beon reported to the trustees, who were "taking steps." Meanwhile, would Mr. Gay be so kind as to keep the matter a secret till ho heard from them again. "Very far from satisfactory," Gay commented. "Still, I've done my duty in the matter. Perhaps those chaps know something aud are keep ing it to themselves." "Perhaps it has happened before," Herepath suggested. "Perhaps I have stumbled upon some family scandal. Well, we have done all we can, Har old. But I've still got the idea tti, the thief will turn up again. It will amuse me to look out for him." For the moment there was ...

CHAPTER XXVIII. Enid Speaks Out. I-Iarloy bent his head parrot-like again. He and Gilray were coming to grips now. "Go on!*' he croaked. "Don't minco your words. So I am a party to iraud, am I?" "Yes, and I am another. Hero path lias beaten you. Ho did not turn out to be the average inventcr who does nothing but dream of on told gold So long as he 'has a sove reign in bis pocket. He pushed his machine on. He satisfied Brigden that he had only to go to the irade to get all the money he needed. In that case you would only have had a share of the profits for your thou sand pounds. That share was a l.uge fortune in itself, and would hava more than satisfied an average man. But you are not an average man. Vo»i cast about In your avaricious mind' for some^ scheme whereby you^ coulJ pet everything." - " "1 am-not admitting a word of this, Dr. Gilray.

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. Plow few there are who. In every day life, profit by their own experi ence or their observation of others. We have many excellent rules for action handed down to us which we easily forget, or, at any rate, fail to practise. For instance, we have often heard the maxim: "A place for everything and everything In its 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 ance from age. The more numerous and varied the departments of business, and the more diversified our implements of work are, the more important it is 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...
SAFETYS ON THE FARM. Some Precautions Worth Taking. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
SAFETYS ON THE FARM. Some Precautions Worth Taking. . By "Doc." Don't throw boards and box 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 them. Your barefoot boy may step on one and have a painful if not fatal wound. Your 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 iljay spike someone, or you yourself may be the unfortun ate one. Neither should hoes be thrown down with the edge up. They may cut ...

THE MACHINE GUN. A Deadly Instrument of War. Something About It. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
' ^ THE MACHINE GUN. A Deadly Instrument of War. Something About It. (By "Barclay.") i We have all heard and read so mucli about the machine gun of late that wo want to know something more about it. This comparatively little weapon has played an important and terrible part in the present war. We have read on several occasions lately that "machine guns mowed the oncom ing Germans down like corn," or some thing equally descriptive. There are several types of machine guns. There is, for instance, the ] iuaxim, llotchkiss, Gatling, Krupp. Gardner, Nordeufeldt, and the Ebr hardt. Each gun ia constructed much on the same principle, although there is a quick liriug gun that fires small shells, and not the usual riile ammuni tion. 1 The French and Germans some times call a machine gun a mitrail leuse. The only one I am acquainted with is the Maxim, invented by Sir Hiram Maxim, and it is a marvel of human inventive power. i The Maxim has to be seen to bo appreciated. It has to be heard to be...
