(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN OF THE CZAR, OR, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. PART 9. CHAPTER XXIV.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN §0F THE CZAR,® O R, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. By St, George Rathborno, Author oj "Omar K&Bs&m," etc. PART 3. CHAPTER XXIV,-(Continued.) The man who wrote upon the wall was indeed the ill-fated officer who had. been led out to execution less than forty-eight hours before. Apparently he had Just learned that he had but a few hours to live, and his last act was to thus be queath his legacy to any unfortunate who might come after him. It was a noble deed, and worthy of being remembered, whether good came ot it or not. ,In the briefest possible way, the Russian, told that he had long been engaged in working a secret tunnel that.would give him a chance for liberty-that but six or eight hours work would complete the job ; and now ho had only one hour to live, as he was to die at sunrise. Dugdaie could not imagine anything more provoking than this. At the same timo he was struck with the dramatic qualities of the situation, which certainly e...
WHERE WAS THE PLEA? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
WHERE WAS THE TLE.V ? The ' superintendent of a ' Sunday school was illustrating for the chil dren the *text, "Arise and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt." Showing them a large picture, she asked, "Now, i«n't that splendid ? Hore is the mother. Here is the young child. There's Egypt in tho distance." The children, however, looked dis appointed, and finally a little hoy piped out "Teacher, where's tho flea?"
CHAPTER XXV. A HOT BIRD AND A COLD BOTTLE [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
CHAPTER XXV. v , A HOT BIRD AND A COLD BOTTLE . When the prisoner discovered the : identity of his visitor, his first "thought was in the line of congratu lation that he had been wise enough .to obliterate a part of the message upon the wall, for it was hardly pos . sible that it could escape the major if he remained in the cell any length of time. Dugdale wondered what had brought the governor of the citadel to his place of confinement. He remembered the airy way in which he had invited a call, without suspecting it would be accepted. When he discovered that Kickofl carried the old square lantern in one tiiand and had a basket on his arm, he sccnted dinner. Accordingly he sprang up and hur ried to meet the major, once moro assuming that jaunty, happy-go lucky air that had quite captivated the heart of this soldier of fortune. "Upon my soul, this is an unex pected, but doubly welcome, pleasure, major. The only thing X regret is that circumstances , over which I have no control effec...
King Alfonso's Outing. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
King Alfonso's Outing. King Alfonso is fond of taking motor trips incognito. H© motor ed recently through a wild region of Castle, and put up at a modest inn. ' "I am sure," he aaid, "that they w'on't know me hero 1" Well, they did not know him there. They treated him like an ordinary traveller. So much so that when he went to shave the next morning be found there was no mirror in his room. So he went into the inn yard in his shirt sleeves, and there a chambermaid brought him a broken piece of mirror which he set up beside the I well. The girl stood chatting with bim. Finally she said : "You are not just an ordinary traveller, are you ?" Why do you ask me that ?" "I don't know," said the maid ; "but there's something about you perhaps. you belong to the Royal Court at Madrid ?" "Yes, X do," he answered. "Perhaps you work for Hie Ma jesty himself ?" "Yes, I do." "And what do you do for him?" asked the chambermaid. "Oh, lots of things," the King re plied. "I'm shaving him jUBt now."
CHAPTER XXVI. SUNSHINE FOR ONCE IN A DUNGEON. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
CHAPTER XXVI. SUNSHINE FOR ONCE IN A DUNGEON. Ho certainly left something for Mr. I Dugdale to ponder over, something so pleasant as to tingle bis nerves, and cause him to laugh at times. So Isolde did not forget. She had even come to the prison - attended, of course, and with the grim old general'B reluctant consent-to bring him a supper. He had thought it good enough be foro when he had only, the governor in mind ; but now it bore the rela tion of a feast second to none, for her sweet fingers had touched that bird and that basket, sacred to him for ever more. It had come upon him swift and strong, but probably Owen in no other respect differed from the ma jority of fellows head over ears in love. Suppose he should manage to work his way out of this miserable holo, what should be his next movo ? He had enlisted in her cause, and even when the hope of saving her seemed to have fled, was it not his bounden duty to continuo tho strug gle to the very last ? So he pondered, and came to ...
The Bear's Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
The Bear's Mistake. While in winter quarters in Green land Captain Mikkelsen and his companion had an adventure with a bear. The captain was chopping wood on the floor of the house when an "exclamation from Iversen caused him to look up, and he ' found him self confronting a hear which was not.more., than twenty paces ofi. ' I sprang back hastily, with a sort of mentril snapshot of a big, white, furry lump,' with shining, teeth and flashing eyes, gliding . silently and swiftly, toward: me. in a moment we have shut and bolted the door, and Iversen puts his back against .it to further bar the ontranco against our unwel come guest. We are not exactly prepared. Iversen has but one' shot in his gun, and mine is empty; both weapons arc frozen, and it is doubtful if we can get them thaw ed in time. Bruin, however, has no sportsmanlike scruples about waiting until we are ready ; ho is hungry, and evidently determined to break in. A mighty thump of his heavy paw settles the matter. Iversen i...
CHAPTER XXVII. DUGDALE MAKES PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
CHAPTER XXVII. DUCrDALE MAKES PROGRESS. Isolde looked at the man who spoKn. The conditions were hardly in his favour. A stranger in a land where the strong arm of his Government could not reach him, confined in the mouldy dungeons of Smolensk, it really Beemed the height of absurdity to thus declare that if she so willed he was ready to venture even more than he had already done in her behalf. Perhaps she might even have smiled. But there was a Are of enthusiasm slumbering in his steady, eyes, a spirit of unquenchable determination that was somehow communicated to her also. She felt thrilled with his very nerve. Surely to a man who would not allow himself to be crushed by the disasters that had gathered about , bis head nothing might be impos 1 sible. Yes, sho began to (eel a return of the exuberant confidence that had marked their long rido over moun tain and valley, laughing the grim pursuit of Gratschefl to scorn. If he had outwitted that keenest soldier of all Russia, then why n...

Voltaire's Bite. One night Voltairo wns enjoying a performance at the opera, when the Due do Lair/Aim, a favourito of Louis XV. noisily entered the foyer with a crowd of friends, and de manded a box. "Alas, monsieur," said the attend* nnt, "the boxes aro nil gono !" "That may be," said tho duke, "but 1 seo. tho scribbler Voltairo over there in a very good box. Turn him out I" Anxious, to please the Court favourite, tho attendants ejected Voltaire from the box for which he had paid, and the Due do Lauzun took, hh; place. Voltaire, enraged at the injustice , of the affair, brought a suit against the duke to recover the price he had paid for tho box. At the opening session of the Court, the duke's lawyer rose, and in a scornful voice, said ' "What . Jh it Monsieur Voltaire, a petty ink splasher, who dares to I lend against the Due de .Lnuztin, whose greatgrandfather was the first to scale tho walls of "La Ro chelle, whose grandfather took twelve cannon from the Dutch at Utrecht, whose ...

Echoes Made to Order. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
Echoes Made to Order. Are. you-aware that it is possible to muko - cchocs ? It is, indeed, easier to make than to destroy them. In the past men built their . great temples and . cathedrals with no thought of acoustics. Hence, when the preacher, preached, echoes rolled freely amid the groining*) of the roof down the rows of sculptured col umns, and round and round # the nave. With wires strung here and with tapestries spread there, many of the echoes of tho old-world buildings havo been obliterated. There are echo experts-builders acquainted with the sciencc of acoustics, whose speciality is echoes' destruction. Sometimes their tasks are hard. To-day an architect takes thought of tho echo. His building is con structed so as to exclude this in truder. And,, knowing how to ex clude it,., ho knowB how to welccme it also. Architects are frequently, called upon in landscape work to put up summer-houses and arrange rocks around them so as to create an echo there. And this they can satisfac...
KNEW THIS RIGHT END ANYWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
KNEW THIS RIGHT END ANY WAY. It was harvesting time, and two Irishmen were looking for a job, and going to tho farmer, asked him for a few days' work. After look ing them up and down he gave the bigger and taller one leave to start work, and waved the shorter man away. "Sure, sor," he burst out, "what's the (matter ivid me?" "You are too short," replied the farmer. Quickly camo the- retort : "Arrah, now, does yer honour cut yer corn at the top ?" Ho got the job. An American who desired to go to Mexico as a soldier was re jected on account, of bis poor toeth. "What's the idea?" he said to tho recruiting oflioor. "Have we got to eat the grecuiers alter we kill j 'an ?". I
The Art of Summer Living. WHAT TO EAT—AND WHY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
the Art of Summer Living. WHAT TO EAT-AND WHY. (By IJ. G. H.) "If pooplo would only observe a few simple rules in regard to their diet, they would really enjoy a heat wave." Such was the surprising statement ntado to mc a short tinio ago by a well-known doctor, when I com plained of tho inconveniences of sum mer heat and the difficulty of feed ing oneself with tho thermometer in the region of lOOdeg. in the shade. "That is simply because," ho continued, "you, like the majority1 of other people, will not take tho trou ble to regulate your living accord ing to the weather." I protested, and explained that Z had been taking lighter foods. "Just so," replied the doctor; "but I expect you had what you fancied," 1 was obliged to confess that I had. "That is the cause of all thotrou-;; ble," he said. "What you want to do is to take care that you only eat and drink those things which afford least heat to the body, while nourishing the system and repairing the wasto expenjried through work."...

To Boil Water in a Cask. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
To Boil Water in a Cask. Sometimes hot water is required in considerable quantities, as, for in stance, at pig-killing time, but kero sene-tin boilers may bo scarce, and the copper may bo too far away. The device illustrated enables one to boil water in a cask without putting a 1 fire underneath. The cask, in fact, may be inside a shed, and the (Ire outside. ' And one of the advantages of the method is that a person can' have hot water all the time available without the discomfort of working close to a big iiro. two holes are bored, one above the other, in ono side of the cask, and into these holes are inserted the ends of a long pipe that has been doubled back into the WOODEN BOILER. shnpo of the letter U. The longer tho pipe, tho further away the fire can be, though it has to be remem ; bered that on a very long pipe the atmosphere would have considerable cooling clTect. If a Sin. pipe is used 1 a barrel of water will be heated to boiling, point in a comparatively ; short rime. Th...

Few people reailso what an almost perfect condition prevails along a large part of the great wall of China; The bricks of the parapet are as firm af? ever, and their origes havo stood the scvero climatic con dittons of North China with scar cely a break. The paving along the top of tho wall is so smooth that one may ride over it with a bicyclc, and the great granite blocks with which it is faccd are smooth and ns closely-fitted as when put in plnce over two thousand years ngo. The entire length of this wall is 1,400 miles, it i« 22 feet high, and 20 foot in thickness. At intervals of 100 3'ards or so, there are towers some 40 feet in height. *
