THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BORDER A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. By TOM GILL. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL. RIGHTS RESERVED.] .. CHAPTER LIV.— (Continued.) , For a '* time in the gloom of that granite recess he looked at them. Fear less, impulsive, doglike in their loy alty_ Each of them he had known— the 'history and hopes of each. They had faced death together, had kept back- the power of Morales. Yes, it had been a good game, and a little glow of pride and of affection for these strangely assorted men showed now in Don Bob's troubled eyes. They stood silent, helpless before the disaster -that had overtaken their leader. Uneasily they looked at one another, like dumb animals in pain. He had been their protector. He had led them in revolt. He had taught them to hope, and now he was going away to face — none dared even guess. Manuel's voice trembled. 'Must it be this, amigo? Is it not better to fight our ,way out? Come, stay with us and together, when dark...

SLIMMING ON THE FAT OF THE LAND. QUEER FACTS ABOUT FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 24 May 1934
SLIMMING ON THE FAT OF THE LAND. QUEER FACTS ABOUT FOOD. When an anxious mother makes beef tea for a sick child, she gives the in valid a watery fluid and the solid mat ter to the dbg. That solid matter con tains 99 per cent, of the nourishment! A well-to-do person spends, say, six shillings on oysters in the belief that I they are exceptionally nourishing, yet the slice of brown bread and butter which he eats with them contains the higher food value. Many people believe that toast helps;, to keep them slim. Yet, weight' for weight, toast is more nourishing than bread. Others think that a soup which sets to a jelly when cold must be ex ceptionally nourishing. The truth is that gelatin is one of the few proteins which Will not support life.
