FEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
FEAR. A large majority of men ami wo men, especially among the uneducat ed, know very little about apprehen sion in any form. They feel it sel dom and forgot it soon. They do not even fi»nr death so long as it comes to them in bed. We are continually told nowadays that the place of the poor is out of the sun. Possibly this is true, but on this very account the darkest shadow's: aro not seen by them. For thinking men and womon, however, apprehension does darken 'life-more than most of them care to say. It begins early, often with the awakening; of the memory, and they are never ontirply freo of it. The amount of fear which besets, many of us out of all proportion to the amount of misfortune which wo have had to endure, or even to that which in our rational mo ments we expect. I

DIPPING THE FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
DIPPING THE FLAG. I The salutation given when a vessel lowers or "clips" its flag is one of the oiliest and most honourable of1 all'forms of marine greeting. ] This form of salute has always been demanded by English-speaking seamen, arid its oxnetion has warmed up the hearts nnd used up tho pow der of generations of naval comman ders. ! In the old days, tor a foreign ship, whether merchant or naval, to enter an English port without veiling top Rails or dipping its national flag was to run the risk of war, although tbo profoundest pence; existed. Without warning or argument, the Bhore defences of. a man-of-war would, send a round, shot across the bows or botween the masts of the foreign er and if the offending flag did not instantly como down the insolent in truder was. brought to her sensrs by being raked through and through. ! Such was the reception accorded by Sir John Hawkins in the sixteenth century to tho Spanish admiral who, in time of peace, sailed into Ports mouth Sound witl...

CHAPTER XX. STILL THE DEVIL'S OWN DARLING. The sun was shining brightly the next morning when Mr. Hetherington passed out of the park gates on his way to see Dr. Fitzpatrick. This time he did not choose the little door in the wall, feeling it was more prudent to give it a wide berth. | Before he had gone many yards he I heard the sound of wheels, and, look I ing round, ho saw the doctor's dog 1 cart, with the doctor in it, coming towards him. J Mr. Hetherington paused, and when the dogcart came alongside of him, jthe doctor pulled up. I "I was coming to see you about a : temporary hospital for the fever cases," said Mr. Hetherington. | "All right. I'll get out and walk 'with you as far as my house." the doctor said, flinging tho reins to his groom, and telling him to drive on ; then, as he joined the other man, ho said : "Have you heard that Mr. CarviU's siater-ln-law, Mrs, Wedmoro, has ' been assaulted and seriously injured, Mr. Hetherington V" ' !

THE LARGEST TORPEDO. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
THE.LARGEST TORPEDO. The largest size of torpedo at pre sent manufactured by tho principal naval powers is the 18in. White head. Its length is 16ft. ljin. ; its weight about two tons, and- its . dia meter 18in. It is not of cigar shape, but is spindle-shaped, and it gets its namo from the ray fish named, tor pedo. > Its cffectivo range depends on the object at which it i6 discharged, be ing from 1,500 sards at a rapidly moving object, such as a swift crui ser or torpedo-boat destroyer, up to G,000 yard* at a breakwater or fleet in mooring. The latest form of- tor pedo, guided by an instrument called a gyroscope, travols at a rato of thirty knots.-" 'Ireland's Own." "Do you think Skinner can make a living out there ?"

THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
THE FARM ARD DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OP CHKESB IN BBLATION TO QUALITY. In a report of the New York Dairymen's Association for 1891, wo find the following statement in an address given \>y Dr. Robertson "In every case thero was a. gradual reduction in th« quality of cheese when there was a less quantity of butter-fat in milk. . . . However, this is true also that the increased yield of chccse is not in direct pro portion to the increased percentage of butter-fat ; that is, milk contain ing 3 per cent of butter-fat will yield Q certain quantity of cheese, but if you take milk having one third more fat (4 per cent.) it will not yield one-third more cheese. At the same time, such milk is worth one-third moro for cheesemaking, and thereby hangs a tale. You see, if it does not yield so much chccse, it yields a quality of cheese so much, better that the market value of the cheese from 100 lb. of milk is a third greater than the market value of the cheese in the other case. "Every two-ten...

CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 31 July 1914
CHAPTER XXIX. A CASE OF BARTER. Joshua.Hetherington sat quite still, looking, with -blanched face at the man opposite to him, whose ut terance had come like an avalanche, bringing, that past, which had seem ed so far away, so securely buried, back to him, and revealing in all its baldness the crime he had commit* ted. "I know all about the blue dia monds," repeated Fitzpatrick. w | For a moment longer there- was : silence, the two men sat and looked I at each other, and as he gazed at his companion Hethcrington realised that he was a man whose silence could be bought, and the thought braced him up, so that bis voice never faltered as be said : "What ilo you kaiow about the blue diamonds ?" I Fitzjmtrlck looked at him admir- | ingly. He admired pluck, and this man was showing it in the faco of a great danger. Yes, he was showiug pluck and a business capacity. One thing was certain-Mr. Hetherington did not mean to give himself away, and he would have to be careful or he would be outwi...
