Purity of the Law. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

Purity of the Law. At Ikidmin Assizes once, a 'barris ter, "while pleading, was interrupted by the judge:— "Mr. Carter, you are wasting the time ol the Court." "Time of the Court," retorted the truculent v teran, glaring fiercely at the Bench. "Your lordship means— your lordship's dinner!" The judge threw up his hands in de spair, and Carter continued his har angue in peace. The same redoubtable advocate was on another occasion defending a man charged with obtaining money under false pretences. "False pretences!" gaid he, with line scorn. "Why, we all make them every day, barristers and solicitors and judges—the whole lot of us. Talk of the purity of the judicial ermine!" Here he pointed derisively to the learned judge, who sat cowering on the Bench. "Why, it's only rabbit skin!" Shouts of laughter greeted this ir reverent statement, which investiga tion would probably show to be liter ally true.

Putting It Nicely. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

Putting It Nicely. Lord Brassey is very fond of yacht ing and cricket. Of a local match held in the grounds of his own house his lordship tells a good story. There was a scar city of available talent, with the re sult that Lord Brassey'a footman was pressed into service as umpire. In due course Lord Brassey him self went in, and a local bowler was put on. The second ball he stopped with his leg, and the cry was raised: "How's that?" Everybody looked towards the footman, who, turning to his master, remarked in an apologetic tone: "I'm afraid I muBt Bay, 'Not at home,' your lordship!" "Not at home!" Lord Brassey ex claimed. "What do you mean?" "Well, my lord, if you will have it," replied the worried footman, "I'm afraid you are out!"

THE KEY OF THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

THE KEY OF THE GARDEN. By A. G. Greenwood. I congratulated myself on gettin;; an empty first at Waterloo. Had 1 been carrying a bucket of pearls of my own and a diamond-encrusted um brella I shouldn't have minded tra velling to Liss with a compartment full of burglars. But what I carried—a sheaf of docu ments in a brown leather satchel— wasn't my own. 1 was on trial—a pro bationer more or less—acting pro tem. (while Fenton was seedy) as private secretary to my second cousin (one removed), Lord Calverley, the then Home Secretary. I was, my relatives said, the fool of the family. I'd been plucked for the army and muffed the Bar-final. I had jibbed at the Church, and finally Cal verley had taken pity on me. For a fortnight I wrote his ponder ous, verbose and redundant letters. Then I was packed off to Liss with the "Openshaw" dossier—very comi ■Jential and very important documenls relating to the prosecution of Homer Openshaw, Paul Rufford and the rest of the Stratton Gold Mines gang. ...

MENTAL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

MENTAL SYSTEM. The faculty of concentrating the mind on the matter in hand, to the exclusion of all other things, is one <K' the rarest and most valuable gifts with which a man can be endowed. To commence with a theory, to think it out to its legitimate results, to re duce those results to a cofacrete form; and, if it be in material science, to proceed to experiment and practise, without diverging in any direction from the purpose, is possible to very few men. A woman always feels sorry for a man who has trouble with his -wife— unless she happens to be the wife. Many a damsel who is a kitten with men is a cat with women.

SHAVES FOR GUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

SHAVES FOR GUESTS. Courtship and marriage are events that are hedged about with a multi tude of romantic customs in Sunny Spain. In Lagetera, for instance, a "Times" Spanish supplement tells us the bride groom must have all the male guests shaved -at his expense, and must Dre. sent all the women-folk of the bride's family -with richly-embroidered Bhoes. Each guest in his turn offers the bride a piece of silver, which she'tour ies in an apple stuck on the point of a knife and holds in her hand while dancing in front of the donor. Amongst the Maragatos the fiancee ought not to speak to any man except her lover, failing which she paid a forfeit; and even to-day (as also in some parts of Andalusia) she is fetched from her home by a large cor tege of friends, who fire off a musket as a sign of joy In the Arab fashion. The Spanish lover must be the very soul of patience, for it is not until after years of "walking out" (under the surveillance of the mother or some other trustworthy person...

PIG POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

PIG POINTS. It pays in hard cash to keep the sows healthy and hearty, both before and after furrowing. At this time of the year the place for . the pigs is in the pasture. The shelters must be kept in good order. A little pig takes cold easily and recovers slowly. To prevent this the shelters must be kept dry. The sow on pasture will seldom lose any pigs at farrowing time. Young pigs never have thumps when running in pasture. Gains are made much more econ omically on pasture. Lucerne makes an excellent pig pasture. Every pig raiser should have a patch of rape. When it is eaten down the pigs should be taken off until the new growth starts up sufficiently. Cow-peas are also a fine supple mentary pasture for pigs. Pigs like variety, and make much more satisfactory and profitable growth when this fact is kept in mind. The boar needs good food and plenty of exercise. Keep him in his own strong quar ters, .away from the sows, and don't neglect him. Son: Papa, what 16 a safety match? Mr. H...

DOMESTIC PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914

DOMESTIC PETS. I I By Muriel Mathias. j "I am sorry, my dear," I said in a low tone o£ mingled kindness and de cision. "but I really cannot counten ance such an idea for a moment." "But, Dick, dearest, they are a birthday present; the only one I've had so far." My wife paused, in or der to give this reminder its due ef fect, and I flushed guiltily as I cursed my deflcient memory. "I did not forget, Lena," I assurel her with prompt mendaciousness, "only I've been having mine made for you, and it wasn't finished last night wlien I—called. I'm sure you will like it so much that you'll willingly give up this idea of keeping " "Rabbits—really, I love them, Dick." "I do not," I replied with an air ol" finality which is indispensable in the head of a household. "Therefore pleaso consider the scheme at an end." Lena looked at me despairingly, and subsided into sobs; that added to my annoyance. 1 went to the city. On returning home many hours lat er with a pretty ring and a certain amount of...
