CHEERS FOR THE WINNERS. -ENGLISH FOOTBALL FINAL. . DEFEATED TEAM DESERTED. As showing the grip the football mania lias on the English it is record ed that six thousand one hundred and thirty-four pounds were taken at the Cup Final at the Crystal Palace. Neither of the teams, Burnley nor Liverpool, was-"considered first-class, but each had fought its way resolute ly through the qualifying rounds, and will now be able to collect as good a team as- money can command. It is well worth while, says an English writer, for any club to gamble a lit tle in order'to secure the services"of players that will take them into the final. rounds. The Football jCssocia tion, when it shares out the money which was faken, will have to pay the Liverpool executive £90G5 and .the Burnley club £14,438.

EDISON'S FIRST INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 July 1914
EDISON'S FIRST INVENTION. I It Is stated that when Edison, was a telegraph operator much annoyance was caused by cockroaches getting into the . tin cans in which the boys carried their lunches. iVarious meth ods of getting rid of them were tried, ■but without success, and then Edison made a bet that he would exterminate the foe. The next day the dinner cans were piled in a heap, and the wizard sur rounded them with a circl of tinfoil ribbon about one, inch wide. About a quarter of an inch away he placed a similar circle, both ribbons being upright, and then connected them with a battery. Along came the cockroaches. To surmount the obstacles they had to place the hind-legs on the outer rib bon and their forelegs on- the inner one. The moment they did so, the circuit was completed and they-top pled over dead.
WOMAN'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 July 1914
WOMAN'S REVENGE. Bismarck had little regard for wo men who attempted to think for them selves In matters of State and poll tics. Moreover, he never took any pains to conceal his dislike for them. Occasionally, however, -when- his ad versary was a clever woman, he found the snub returned as effectively as he gave it. One day he paid a visit to the Russian Embassy at Berlin. Se veral women who were present join ed in the conversation, which turned on some of the political questions of the day. Bismarck was as gruff and surly to the women as usual; he Rout ed even the miftress of the house, the Countess Schouvaloff. At last, to the relief of everybody, Bismarck took his leave. A few mo ments later the family mastiff was heard barking at the great man in the courtyard. Immediately the CountesB ran to the open window and called, in tones of gentle entreaty: "Oh, .please, Monsieur le Chanceller, please don't bite my dog!"

_ CHAPTER XIII. The Baser Metal. Outside, the incessant growl of the busy London street, the occasional shrill cry if a newsboy, the louder "toot-toot" of a motor, the confused babble of voices—these were the sounds that reached the.ears of the girl as she flung herself down- on an arm-chair in a poky little room in Cur zon-street. The" brown London fog, thick and almost tangible, clung to her like a garment, and the beautiful face was marred by a look of irritability. A young man lurched.In after lier, and with unsteady hand, turned up the bare gas jet. "Give mo a cigarette, old boy," said the girl, leaning back in her chair, "this fog is choking me." He held out a lighted match, and she blew the cloud of fragment smoke playfully in his face. He blinked his eyes, but never smiled at the pleas antry. "Look here, Eric," said the girl, petulantly, "why can't you be happy?" And without a word Eric Galbraith poured himself out a glass of cham pagne and drank it at a gulp. "Happy?" he sa...

Armed only with his photo graphic apparatus, the latter pene trates jungles, scales precipices, dodges bullets and bludgeons in riots and revolutions, never hesitating to risk his life when there is a chance of obtaining a startling and unique picture.
