CHAPTER XXXV. In the Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

CHAPTER XXXV, ' In the Gallery. Herepath reached towards the house with a strange feeling upon him I that he had been through all this'be fore. He wondered why he had half expected it to happen. It was very I absurd, of course; 'but there was no putting the sensation aside. But there was no time to waste on. self-analysis. The old house waa 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 was 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 be raced »long. The tot tenant was very ner...

JOY OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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'B worth" from to day! So long as the glad sum 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 flowers bloom in May, Let voices with laughter be ringing And work be the beBt form of "play"! Audacity is the path to lore

WHEN YOU GO INTO TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

WHEN YOU GO INTO TOWN. (By Llewellyn J. Williams.) When you go into town for supplies Do you always take Mandy along? Your little worn wife, with the dull tired eyes, Who sees little of laughter or song. Do you buy all the things Bhe needs— They are paltry and poor at the best; Do you grumble and frown as she argues or pleads, Do you growl—or agree with a jest? When you go. into town for supplies Vour tobacco you never forget; That's the first thing of all that your money e'er buys, While you ne'er have a pang of re gret. Do you ever take Mandy with kindly intent To the fountain to buy her a pop? Does it do your heart good as she smiles in content As she drinks to the last tasty drop? -■ .»urw>' Jj? -'ii-jvsa When you go into town lor supplies, H you haven't e'er done it before, Just take her along for a happy sur prise And turn her loose once in the store. You will bring a great joy to her heart, If she shares in the money's that spent. It's but right she should have a good part...

"I am making no mistake," I answer ed, with the calm assurance of the man who knows what lie is talking about. "Uunfortunately, X am only too sure. Otherwise, Bessie, I should not have mentioned the matter to j'ou." "But who can be doing it?" What can the motive buY' asked my wile, still incredulous. "It WuUld bo neitlie.* wise iini right to accuse, anyone," I replied; "but the person who is committing this terrible crime is o£ necessity one of three peo ple—either Mr. Selcott's sou, or his daughter, or old Hannah the servant. There is nobody else in the house with him. And as it would be ridiculous to suspect Hannah, I am forced to the conclusion that either Reginald or Mary Selcott is a secret poisoner." "Nonsense!

JOURNALISTIC GIANT. He Controls 534 Dallies. While the man who "runs" ten or I llfteen dally newspapers may be re garded as more or less of a Colossus, he is a pigmy compared with the geni us who manages and controls 534 stan dard size morning newspapers (re marks a London contemporary). Few readers are aware that such a man exists. Yet he is to be found very much alive in the person of Louis Hammerling, a naturalised American who has long been looked upon in his adopted country as the greatest news paper proprietor who has ever lived Mr. Hammerling, who is under 40 | years of age, is the president of what is known as the Association of For eign Newspapers, a corporation found ed for the purpose of providing Ameri can Immigrants with daily newspapers in the different languages with which they are familiar.

I was very poor, and making every sacri fice to enlarge my little shop. My only assistant was a boy of fourteen, faithful, willing and honest One day I heard him complaining, and with justice, that his clothes were so shab by that he was ashamed to go to any place of worship on Sunday. 'There is no chance of my getting a new suit this year,' he told me. 'Dad's out of work, and it takes all my wages to pay the rent.' "I thought the matter over, and then took a sovereign* from my carefully hoarded savings and bought the boy a stout, warm suit of blue cloth. He was so grateful that I felt repaid for my sacrifice. But the next day he didn't come to work. I met his moth er in the street and asked her the rea son.

THE AGRICULTURAL CYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

THE AGRICULTURAL CYCLE. The best system of agriculture is based upon good crops and well-bred live stock. Mr. C. \V. Burkott, in "The First Principles of Feeding Farm Animals," aptly describes the j cycle of life as the soil, the plant and the animal, each dependent on one« another, and giving to, or receiving from, the others the things vital to its very existence. Without soil there *" would be no animals, and without plants or animals there would be a useless barren soil. There are twelve important elements that enter into and are essential to plant and mimal growth. Animals, however, cannot gather them from either the soil or the air; nor would it be possible for the animals to use them if they couid, as these elements would be poison 10 animal life. It is necessary for plants to take these elements and build them into tissue first. Oa Uiis tissue the animal feeds. When the animal dies, with its decay ani de composition, comes the changes of animal tissue back to soil and air, t...

BATTLE OF THE PHOSPHATES. The Question of Citric Solubility. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

BATTLE OF THE PHOSPHATE8. The Question of Citric Solubility. Many farmers may remember the wordy war that occurred some years ago between the advocates of super phosphate, as representing water soluble phosphate, and the advocates of raw insoluble phosphate finely ground. Tho struggle between tho two forms of phosphate was of short duration, and ended in a decisive Vic tory for superphosphate. The battle of the phosphates has now been transferred to basic slag, and Is being hotly contested between those who advocate that slag should be sold only on Its percentage of cit ric-soluble (Wagner's test), and those who hold the opinion that the sale oi slag should not be restricted to this one method, which they characterise as arbitrary. The various champions of differeiu methods back up their views by ar guments, and farmers must be puz zled as to which combatapt deserves the prize—namely, the farmers' cus tom. So far no knock-out blow has been given, though to the onlooker the citric-so...
