KING AND SENTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
KING AND SENTRY. There is a scarcity of anecdotes about the unfortunate Prince William of Albania, who has found his throne a thorny one to sit 011. But when bio graphers fail to find a story of the man of the moment they either make ono to fit, filched from some other prominent personage who has 110 fur ther use for it. or give him a story to tell himself. The 0110 they give the Jlpret concerns a certain well-known European sovereign he accompanied during some army manoeuvres. During a stroll about the field of operations, attended only by Prince William, he was intensely annoyed because one sentry failed to salute him. The sentry, of course, simply did not know the sovereign by sight; but the King thought that a slight was intended, and he was furious, es pecially as he has the most splendid and autocratic notions of his own im portance in the scheme of things. "Why don't you present arms?" he demanded, indignantly. The sentry stared at him calmly. "Why should I present arms?" he ...

SETTLING A DISPUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
SETTLING A DISPUTE. A good story is told at the expense | of a certain farmer who let to a cric ket club one o£ his fields. Last year he hit upon a scheme for making his field still more profitable. Without consulting the old club, he let a por tion of the enclosure to a rival organi sation, and thus succeeded in doubling his receipts. As was only to be expected, the field being by no means large enough for two clubs, bickerings and disputes were of frequent occurrence. Depu tations, first from one club and then from the other, waited upon the far mer, who at length grew tired of these continual complaints. "It's a strange thing you can't agree," he remarked at length. 'Why don't you have a joint meeting of the two club3 and try to smooth over your little differences?" This advice was acted upon, though the result was scarcely what the grasping farmer anticipated or desir ed. "We've had that meeting, Mr. B— he was informed at the beginning of the present season, "and have agreed to ...
CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
CYCLING. Writing of the work done by cyclists in the war, an English war correspondent at tho front states that they " may be almost eaid to have scored a triumph." He adds that " the Commander o£ a force that embodies one or more cyclist battalions has an enormous advan tage in possession of the quickest known striking weapon. Of the English, Belgian, and French cyclists' he speaks in the highest termB, but the Germans he considers " typically Teutonic," and of less value than foot soldiers. He main tains that they have rendered caval ry more efficient by relieving them of a host of tedius duties involving a terrible wastage of horse-flesh. •' The spirit of military cycling," he says, " is essentially a twentieth century development. It is the per sonification of a perfect mechanical m chine capable of working con tinuously at high speed, while al lowing every man to retain his in dividuality." " The old spirit of the light cavalry—the quick moving troops for raiding, and the unex ...
ANIMAL BULLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
ANIMAL BULLIES. Many pretty tales are told in chil dren's books regarding the kindness of animals to each other, but prob ably most of these are nothing more than the products of the imagination, for there is very little kindness in the animal world when one of their num ber is sick. Wild birds and animals give no quarter to a weak or sickly comrade. This fact probably accounts for the mystery of never seeing a dead wild bird or animal, for immediately one falls sick it is done to death, and bur ied, no one knows where. The weakling dragging after a herd or flock is quickly put out of its mis ery, not for humane reasons, but for fear of the latter being revealed to a common foe. Nor are tame animals and birds less guilty in this respect. Healthy birds in an aviary will bully an ailing bird shamefully- A sickly hen in a poultry yard has a miserable time, and even cats which have been brought up together will "round on" one of their number if it falls sick. Lovers of pets should there...

HARD ON THE CREDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
HARD ON THE CREDITOR. When Mr. Dobbs reached the boot maker's shop where he had left his boots to be mended his heart sank. Although it was early in the evening, the shop was closed, and apparently deserted. He banged on the front door lustily, and at length Cobbs' thrust his head through an upper window. "What d'you want?" he asked. "My boots," said Mr. Dobbs. "You said you'd have them ready for me." "But haven't you heard?" said the cobbler. "I've failed—gone bankrupt." "I don't care! I want my boots!" said Dobbs angrily. Cobbs disappeared, and an instant later one boot clattered down at Dobbs' feet. "But Where's the other?" he cried. "That's all you'll get!" said Cobbs. "I'm only paying ten shillings In the pound!" " j *

Commercial. GEELONG WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
Commercial. ;o: : GEELONG WOOL SALES. Dennys Lascelles, Ltd., report:— Opening sales in the various selling centres, havebeen looked forward to with more or less trepidation by those inter ested in the prices of our staple product. Geelong from the fact of its catalogues comprising a greater proportion of cross breds was in a better position than other markets. The offerings here were 708(5 bales, our catalogue comprising 3093 bales, the groat bulk being crossbreds from Northern districts which showed more or less dust and earth, but were in dry light condition and most of them fair ly grown. Competition for this kind of wool was practically confined to York shire, who were keen- bidders for well grown, fairly free lots and such sold at prices 10 per cent, to 15 per cen. over last year's opening rates, but those lots falling short of the Yorkshire standard, were bid for irregularly and our buying in was on a larger scale than usual. This was specially the case also, with earthy and ...

Dr. Gilray, you are guilty 0f one or 'lungs—either you are a cheat and a liar, or you have deliberately deprned a fellow-creature of his sight. In.?"0 frt \erdict ia true I accuse jou of tampering with Mr. Herepath's ejes so that you could get a rival out of the way.

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. "WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Look & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXXIII. Plain Words. Gilray's face flushed a dull red. *. was no easy task he saw before him, and lie braced himself for the ordeal. In the ordinary way he would not have cared, but then this slip of a girl knew too much. He had had it from her own lips that she had heard most of the conspiracy whereby Geof frey Herepath had been deprived of the most precious possession a man can have. How far was she prepared to go? What sacrifice would she make to save her father? If only Gilray coulu ---|- this .would h-. ■■asifc". for him. He had expected tears, anif would" have known how to deal with them. He had hoped Enid would make an appeal to him, in which case he could have dictated terms. But he saw no suggestion of tears in her eyes, no desire to throw herself on his mercy. "I am afraid I don't quite under stand you," he said. "Yet I tr...
CITRUS GROWING IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
CITRUS GROWING IN ITALY. The importation into the Common wealth of large quantities of Italian oranges and lemons is reason enough for one to be interested in the con ditions of their cultivation, and the country of their origin. Oranges and lemons uegan to be cul tivated in Italy at the beginning of the sixteenth century, and the plantations increased rapidly until the citrus trade is now one of tho most important in dustries of southern Italy. As far back as the year 1200, a bitter orange tree is said to have been planted in the garden of the monastery of St. Sabina at Rome by a friar named St. Dominic, and following up the old traditions, visitors to the monastery are shown a tree still alive in the gar den supposed to be a direct descend ant from the first orange tree planted by the monk. In the autumn the Ita lians cover the whole of the trees with straw to protect them from the frosts. It is said to make amost ef fective covering. The fruit is picked by girls, who perform the ...
CHAPTER XXXV. In the Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
CHAPTER XXXV. In the Gallery. Herepath reached towards the house with a strange feeling upon him that he had been through all this 'be fore. He wondered -why he had half expected it to happen. It was very absurd, of course; 'but there was no putting the sensation aside. But there was no time to waste on self-analysis. The old house was on fire, and willing hands were needed to cope with the disaster. At Herepath's call Gay came running into the gar den. "What on earth is wrong?" he de manded. "Camford Is on fire," Herepath ex plained. "A man on a horse yelled the news as he passed. Probably he is on his way to Castleton for the engines. But hadn't we better run across and see what we can do?" The suggestion waB so obvious that Gay made no reply except to dash across the garden in the direction of the road. The glow in the sky told its own tale; indeed, it looked as if Camford were well alight. "I can't understand it," Gay gasp ed, as he raced alone. The last tenant | was very nervou...

JOY OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914
JOY OF LIFE. When life is all sunshine and laughter. And happiness sparkles like wine. Why fret about what may come after, Or dwell with regret on "lang syne"? Drink deep of the goblet of gladness, Let youth have its fling while you may; To-morrow may bring with It sadness, So take "all it's worth" from to day! I So long as the glad sua is shining, So long as the stars glimmer bright, 'Twere folly to waste in repining The hours that were made for de light. So long as you hear the birds singing, So long as fair flower? bloom in May, [ Let voices with laughter be ringing And work be the best form ot I "play"! Audacity is the path to love
