Root of the Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
Root of the Complaint. Bellingham was a long-suffering man and a patient one. Never had he tried to interrupt the continuous flow of conversation which Mrs. Bellingham provided. At last, however, his i nerves gave out, and the doctor was | called in. I "He must have sleep and rest," was the doctor's verdict. He looked at Mrs. Bellingham thoughtfully. "Ma dam, I will send you some sleeping powders which must be used exactly as written on the box. Will you promise to do this, or must I order him to the hospital?" "I promise," said Mrs. Bellingham, roodily enough, although wondering why he made so odd a request. She learned when the box came from the druggist's, and she read on the label: "Sleeuins: powders, to be taken night and morning -by Mrs. B."

PRIDE OF INTELLECT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
PRIDE OF INTELLECT. | There is a kind of pride which occa ' sionally obtrudes itself upon our no tice, and which claims to be of a high order—namely, the pride of in tellect. For this there might seem to be some degree of excuse. Mental I endowments are at least a part of the man himself, and not a mere accident of external surroundings. Yet, when we come to examine claims of this kind, do we find them valid? It is only the man of very limited know ledge who desires to air it on every occasion. The intellect that is vain of itself must be a small one indeed— so small that it cannot even see the , wealth of mind and the treasures of knowledge that are beyond its present grasp. i Fallon (who has bought a small farm): "Tell me the truth, Mr. Garney, i is the soil rich or poor?" | Expert Gardener: "Well, sor, I should say it wor wanst rich, but it's now la raydooced circumstances."
VALUABLE SWORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
VALUABLE SWORDS. Among the royal treasures of Per sia is a pipe set with diamonds, rubies and emeralds to the value, it is estim ated, of no less than £100,000. This pipe was made for the late Shah, and is said to he oven more valuable! than his famous sword. In the matter of swords it is said that the Gaekwar of Baroda possesses the most precious blade in existence. Its hilt and belt are encrusted with dia monds, rubies, sapphires and emer alds, and its value has been put at £200,000. There are many costly swords in the treasure rooms of Eastern and European rulers, notably those of the Czar of Russia, the Sultan of Turkey, and the King of Siam, but the sword of the Gaekwar outshines them all. The most valuable sword in Europe is that presented by the Egyptians to Lord Wolseley. The hilt is set with brilliants, and the whole sabre is es timated to be worth £2,000. The Maharajah of Ghened is the owner of the most costly brougham in the world. The handles of the doors are of solid go...
ED[?]BLE DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
EDH3LE DOGS. Quite unlike the quadruped to which we are accustomed is the Chinese ed ible dog, which is destined from the beginning for the table. Like the ed ible rat of the same country, he is fed mainly upon vegetable food, which i3 often delicately prepared, and specially devised in order to give the dog's flesh a peculiar flavor and aroma. The result is something quite differ ent from the flesh of the ordinary dog of the Western world, which feeds gen erally in a very miscellaneous way, and never with a view to the suitabil ity of his flesh for human consumption. The genuine Chinese edible dog is known by his bluish-black tongue, which is a peculiar mark of his vari ety. In his infancy and early youth the dog's tongue is red; and upon reaching maturity and tlie edible age it suddenly becomes black, sometimes within a single fortnight. Another peculiarity of this dog is his lack of the barking faculty. It is said that the dog can bark, and on rare occasions does so; but these oc...

The Touch of Genius. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
The Touch of Genius. Sandy jVIacpherson started to build a small outhouse of bricks. After the usual plan of bricklayers, he worked I from the inside, and, as he had the I material close 'beside him, the walls were rising fast when noon arrived, and with it his son Jock, who brought his father's dinner. With honest pride in his eyes, Sandy looked at Jock over the wall on which he was engaged, and asked: "Hoo d'ye think I'm gettin' on?" "Famous, feytlier; but hoo dae ye get oot? You've forgot the door!" One glance around him showed " Sandy that his son was right; but, I looking kindly at him, he said: "Man, Jock, you've got a gran' heid ( on ye! Ve'll be an architect yet, as ■ sure's yer feyther's a builder." |
SWITZERS MUST WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
SWITZERS MUST WORK. Switzerland is a country that lias a I short and easy method of dealing with I the lazy man who is work-shy. The I Swiss act upon the theory that a man I who is unemployed is, if left to him self, prone to become unemployable, j and that for a community to allow any one of its members who is cap able of work to remain unemployed is ' a public waste. In industrial Swit zerland there is no place for the idle. It is considered the duty of the authorities to assist in every way pos- | sible persons honestly seeking em ployment, and it is also held to be their duty to punish the work shirker nnd to force him to earn his bread before he may eat it. No toleration is shown to the loafer, begging is pro hibited by law, and vagrancy is classi fied as a crime in the legal code of the Confederation. In Switzerland a man may not de liberately join the army of the i employed and remain indefinitely the ranks without even making an ef fort to secure employment and in the interv...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To keep suet fresh, chop rough'.v and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.

IV. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
Sir John Woodstock, having dis posed of his entire business as a go ing concern, stood for the lust time in the snug private room where his millions had been made. He had 110 one now to work for, 110 interest in life; all his dreams and liopes and plans had gone awry—only the money was left, and for that iie did not care one iota. He was a man or few but deep af fections, and those he had concentra ted his love upon had always failed him. Of friends he had none. While absolutely just and honorable in all his dealings with his fellow-men, he judged everybody by his own stan dard, and found ail wanting! When he tore the memory of his only child from his heart, in spite of his great wealth he was poor indeed! So lonely was he that now it came to the last it hurt him to say good bye to that room in which so many hours ot' his working life had been spent. With indescribable 'bitterness he re alised that none of the large staff of clerks Celt regret at parting with him. Instead, they trie...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
III. As Sir John read the letter his face paled with emotion; then liis expres sion became anxious and disturbed: "Dear Sir John,—We have faith fully obeyed your instructions regard ing your daughter, who has not been allowed to form acquaintances of any kind, until circumstances arose over which we had no control—to put the matter briefly, a boat in which your daughter went ou the river a short time ago was capsized, and her life was in danger, when a gentleman, standing on the bank, plunged in and rescued her, since when he has shown ■ considerable interest in dear Irene, who seems inclined to 'be very friend ly with him. We have remonstrated but she proves just a little self-willed, and so we think it better to place all the circumstances before you.—I am, yours truly, "MARIA STONE. "P.S.—There is not the slightest cause for anxiety; naturally the dear child feels grateful to her preserver." Sir John frowned perplexedly, then his eye caught the letters "P.T.O.," and he hastily ob...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
II. Consternation reigned throughout the whole office when the news of the loss was .made known, hut Sir John very quickly quietened the alarm of those who feared they might (be sus pected. "I put the notes on the table my self," he stated, firmly, "and no one entered this room except one gentle man, who called to see'me on busi ness, and -whom I left alone here for some five or ten minutes. If the notes are stolen, he is the thief. It is hard ly possible that I have overlooked them, but I offer a reward of fifty pounds for their recovery." An hour later, as no trace of tliem could foe found, the matter was placed in the hands of the police, who, act ing on information given and instruc tions received, took out a warrant for the arrest of Royal Drummond, and executed it on. the Admiralty Pier, Dover, in the early hours of the morn ing, just as he was stepping on the gangway of the Ostend 'boat, in spite of his indignation and vehement de nials that he had' stolen anything. At the fi...
Appropriate Part. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
Appropriate Part. "What pawt have you—aw—reserv ed for me, Miss Coachem?" asked young Sapleigh of the fair manageress of the amateur theatricals. "Why, really, Mr. Sapleigh," she re plied—Miss Coachem, it will be ob served, -was a very tactful young lady —I'm afraid we quite forgot about you, and now—how very unfortunate! —all the parts have been assigned." Young Sapleigh's eyeglass clatter ed to the floor, and so dejected became his mien that even Miss Coachem's cunning heart melted somewhat. "By the way," she continued, "I be lieve the part of the heroine's father is still vacant. Perhaps that would suit you?" Young Sapleigh's face brightened visibly. "The pawt," he said, "is really of little—aw—consequence, doncher know —provided that I'm one of the—aw— actahs. Er—aw—what am I—aw— supposed to do in the pawt?" "Well," replied the manageress, who had hoped to steer clear of this ques tion, "since the whole plot depends on the heroine being an orphan, I'm afraid it'll be necessary f...
"THANK HEAVEN, THERE IS NO NAPOLEON." Mr. Bonar Law's Patriotic Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
"THANK HEAVEN, THERE IS NO NAPOLEON." Mr. Bonar Law's Patriotic Speech. "It you ask me what we are fight ing for," said Mr. Bonar Law, "I re ply that we are fighting tor the hon or and,- what with tho honor is bound up always, the interest of our nation. But we are fighting also for the whole basis of the civilisation for which we stand and for which Europe stands. I do not wish, any more than the Prime Minister, to inflame passion. I only ask the House to consider one aspect. Look at the way Belgium is being treated to-day. There is a re port—if it is not true now it may be true to-morrow—that the city of Liege is invaded by German troops and that civilians, as in the days of the Mid dle Ages, are fighting for their hearths and homes against trained troops. How has that been brought about? In a state of war, war must he waged. But remember that this plan is not of to-day or of yesterday; that it has been long matured; that the Germans knew that they would have this to face; and tha...
CAUSES OF GREA[?] WARS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
CAUSES OF GREk. WARS. The Austro-Servian war was no doubt largely due to the murder of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his consort at Serajevo. Similarly it was the assassination, in March, 1897, of the Turkish chief of gendarmie by the Macedonian brigand leader, Nicholas Martinovitch, coupled with the fact of his being shielded by the Greek Government after he had taken refuge in Tliessaly, that brought about the Graeco-Turkish war of that year. Upon two occasions at all events has the murder of a British subject been summarily avenged by armed force. The first was in 185G, when the murder by Chinese officials of the cap tain of the British ship Arrow was followed almost immediately by a de claration of war, in the course of which the Chinese fleet was practic ally annihilated and Canton was bom barded and' partially destroyed. Six years later we were at war with Ja pan over a somewhat similar incident, a Mr. Richardson, an English merchant living in Yokohama, having been bru ta...

THE PEACEMAKER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914
THE PEACEMAKER. i. Sir John Woodstock frowned as lie read the name on the card in his hand, bit his lip and hesitated before speaking. How he hated it, and how n uch he had suffered through one who once had 'borne it! If he lived for a hundred years he would never forget or forgive. Then he pulled himself together again and said, reluctantly: "Show him in—I'll see him!" The next minute the door opened to admit a singularly attractive young man of about twenty-five years of age, at sight of whose face the baronet flushed darkly, for memories of the strongest emotions human beings can feel were called up by it, viz., love and hate, separate at first, then,, in his case, finally resolving themselves in to a fixed and bitter hate—hate—hate! ' His hands toyed with the papers spread out on the table 'before him— share certificates of his latest and most profitable speculation, and a roll of banknotes of the value of £1000. "You are Sir. Royal Drummond?" lie said in a harsh, almost fierce ...
