TITLED LADIES AS NUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
TITLED LADIES AS NUNS. ] The announcement that the Hon. Albinia Brodriclc, sister of Viscount Midleton, has almost completed a hos pital in County Kerry at a cost of ■t: 5000 for the peasants, calls atten tion to the noble work of this lady, who tor several years has been living u life of self-sacrilice among the poor est of Ireland's poor. For their sakes she sold her beauti ful old furniture, her china and her jewellery, trained and became a cer tificated medical and surgical nurse, midwife, and sanitary inspector, and lived among the peasants in a little cottage at 5s. a week. Not only, how ever did she dispose of her effects in order to find money for the benefit of the Irish poor, but she saved the ex pense of having a foreman in connec tion with the building of the hospital by doing the work herself. Pending the opening of the hospital, Miss Brodrick keeps a supply of drugs and medicines in her cottage. Sometimes she is summoned to vislt her'patients, and tramps many miles ove...

£700 HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
£700 HUSBANDS. To those who imagine that the crim inal law under which British.rule has long since suppressed the Hindu prac tice of the burning of widows, known ^ "suttee,".. on thv,. funeral .uvrp.s of .. still observed among \ widows, who must not, according to tnelr native beliefs, take a second husband, and who, consequently, drift into a life of drudgery and unhappiness, but that tender Hindu girls have adopted this form of suicide because of the lack of husbands. Recently there has been quite an epidemic of suicides from this cause. It began a short time ago with the self-destruction of a young Hindu girl whose father was about to mortgage liis property in order to pay the price of a husband for her. The price of husbands in Bengal has risen, until to-day it ranges from about £50 to as much as £700—£300 being quite a usual price demanded by fath ers of eligible sons—whereas formerly husbands could be obtained for half these amounts. The increase is due in a measure to the req...

CRESSY. PLEASANT SUNDAY AFTERNOON. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
CltESSY. PLEASANT SUNDAY AFTER NOON. Mr J. G, Jobnstone, M.L.A., pre sided at a pleasant Sunday afternoon in the Mechanics' Il.dl last Suuday in connection with the local Me thodist Sunday school anniversary. The principal speaker was the Hon. W. H. Edgar, who delivered an in teresting address on " Our duty to the Empire." In the course of hiB address Mr Johnstone said he thought in regard to the man that it was the duty of people to show which side they werj on. He re ferred to a great sacrifice that had been made nearly 2000 years ago. To-day sacrifices were being made at the front on our behalf. It was not for vainglory or for fame that the Australian. and Canadian sol diers were sent, but to keep the enemy from our shores, and he be lieved if the Germans had succeeded in caching Paris, that Australia would have been the price of the indemniiy that would have to be paid by Great Britain. The keynote of the address was sac rifice and dutj- to home. The Hon. W. H. Edgar expressed p...

CHAPTER XXXVII. A Half-Confession. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
CHAPTER XXXVII. A Half-Confession, In spite of the sternness of his pur pose, Herepath -was feeling just a lit-, tie sorry for the poor old man •who was -wriggling like a ■worm on a hook. Here was not the chief conspirator 'by any m-ans, nor had old James benefited by the plot which Herepath hoped to lay hare. But he had gone too far now to draw back, even if he were disposed to do so. The old man stood there trembling and shaking .pitifully. It was useless for him to lie any longer. He glanced at Herepath's stern face as if hoping to find some trace of mircy there. The silence ■was growing intolerable. "I am ■wii.tirn: ior you to go on, JajKM," said. hI(J k^°w you be, sir," James mum bled. And tumble hard it be on ar old man. 'Tain't as if I'd got any thin to gain, sir." "There I am absolutely in agree ment with you," Herepath said drily am quite sure that you never ex pected a penny for that senseless folly. What I want to know is win } ou set fire to the house." Happens as I was ...

The old mail put up his hands as it to ward off a blow. Herepath took him tjy the arm and led him into the open. "Now listen to me," he said. "I am not goit g to injure you, and you are not going to suffer—that is, if you tell the truth. How did the firebreak out?" "Oh, lor', sir, I don't know, sir," the o'.d man stammered. "I just sniffed smoke, and my old 'ooman she snift ed smoke. And I ups an' gets along fust to the gallery " "Yes, I know you came first to the gallery. You said that before. But what I want to know, and what you have got to tell me, is viij you came first to the gallery. There are no fireplaces there; there is no hot water in the heating apparatus at this time o£ the year. And yet tlie fire starts in the gallery, and this is the spot you make for at once. Why?"

WOUNDS IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
WOUNDS IN WAR. A French doctor who went through the recent Balkan war gives the fol lowing interesting account of wounds and how they are got. Dr. Laurent's experience shows that in modern warfare, where the soldier fires under cover as much as possible, lying prone in a trench, bullets from the enemy either hit him on the head or catch his hands. The right hand is protected by the rifle, so that it is the left that gets hurt. Dr. Laurent suggests the use of a metallic shield, sufficiently ' light, yet resistant, to protect the head, another fixed to the left hand or on the rifle itself, and a third to protect the region of the heart. Many soldiers have had their lives saved by the chance pre sence of a pocket-book filled with papers, or even of a metallic cigarette case. In the left breast-pocket of their tunic. Superposed 6heets of paper have always constituted, even in an cient wars, an excellent shield. Dr. Laurent's statistics show from 82 to 84 per cent, of bullet wounds, trom...
CHAPTER XXXVIII. The Real Man. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
CHAPTER XXXVIII. The Real Man. Herepath was seeing daylight now with a'vengeance. In the next min ute or two a hundred things grew 'frain before him. All this had been in the light of a revelation, and on his side also he would have a revelation or two to make before many hours had elapsed. "Won't you enlighten me a little further?'' he asked. "Not for the present," Ninon said. "You would not have learnt this much had not I wanted to make you feel quite easy in your mind as to these jewels. I invented the whole pretty little play of the robbery, and it went from first to last without a hitch. The way we got hold of Zana and kidnapped him "was a stroke of genius. And Victor Player took his place. Oh, I dare say I should be ashamed of myself; perhaps I am, a little. But I like adventure and ex citement. I cannot get on without them. I was I who brought the Prin cess in contact with Daniel Harley and arranged for the sale of the stones. They had to change hands ■without anybody knowing...
Surface Men or Contract Work? DISCUSSED BY GRENVILLE COUNCIL. QUESTION STILL UNDECIDED [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
Surface leg or Gornraci WorR? DISCUSSED BY GRENVILLE COUNCIL. QUESTION STILL UNDECIDED When tbe question of the appoint ment of permanent surfacemen was brought forward at Thursday's meeting of the Grenville Shire Council, Cr Yaughan pbserved that if they wanted to spoil a good man put him oil as a sn placeman. It was the nature of the work that made them so. When travellers came along a road they would pull up and make a man stop his work while' they talked about the ejections or the war. From his observations in the past he was against the proposal, Cr Poynton said that Cr Yaughan had not advanced any reasonable argument why the proposal should not be given a trial. Really good men could be chostn, and by quot ing the cost of certain works in the shire by contract he proved that similar work had been carried out by day labor at a third of the cost. He maintained that if a man were in the permanent employ of the council he would take more interest in his work, and the sort of thing...
