THE LATEST WINDSOR MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
THE LA'TEST WINDSOR MAGA ZINE. The interest of the neiv features introduced in the previous issue is more than maintained in the August Magazine. The second complete story in Justus Miles Forman's new series of romance from diplomatic life is en titled The Duel by the Bosphorous, and is one of the most dramatic and impressive things that this master of the art of the short story has yet done. It is admirably illustrated by G. C. Wilmshurst. Sir H. Rider -laggard's absorbing romance from the career of Allan Quartermain, The Holy Flower, reaches a stage from which every read. er must eagerly pursue the remainder of that stirring narrative. Dornford Sates contributes another delightful little comedy, Edgar Wallace tells a further ingenious story from the ex periences of the irrepressible Carfew, and the historical romance of The White Horses is carried onward by Halliwell Sutcliffe in his most charm ing manner. Katharine Tynan, Al bert Kinross, R. S. Warren Bell, and other authors of v...

The matter will be attended to.
IN OTHER LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
IN OTHER LANDS. ----+- -- A German natural history authority calls attention to an interesting change in the habits of German wild rabbits. The animals are giving up their ancient habit of burrowing, and have commenced to imitate the hares, which nest only above ground." The German bares themselves were. once burrowers, and gradually went through the same change in habits in this particular that appears to characterise the rabbits at the pre sent day. In woods where the under growth is thick, the rabbits finding hiding places in plenty for their nests; and even in open country, unwooded-and they seem to be tak ing more and more to the open. The female makes little fortresses for her young, to protect them from the can, nibalistic propensities of the male, she lines the nest warmly with fur from her own breast, visits them se cretly at night, and perhaps suckles them once more during the 24 hours; but each time that she leaves she carefully piles rubbish before the opening.

NEW DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
NEW DISCOVERY. A discovery has been made by Dr Gwathmay, of New York, which should be of immeasurable value to surgeons. It is a new method of administering chloroform and ether, reducing the risk of death to ni!,, and eliminating the after nausea in 90 per cent. of the cases. The method, which has recently been used in 6,000 cases, consists in passing the anaesthetic (chloroform and ether) through water warmed slightly over blood heat before administering it to the patient. This is accomplish ed by a simple apparatus operated by a foot pump. The water removes certain impurities, mainly aldehyde, which tend to cause nausea. whilst the anaesthetic, being of the tem icrature of the body when inhaled, does not cause any shock to the sys tem as produced by the old method of breathing cold ether and chloro form. Dr. Gwathmay claims that an infant of three days old can be made completely unconscious in five minutes without seriously affecting the kidneys, heart, or lungs. "Wind," wrote a ...
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS I AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps, consigned to Bombay Town Hall, went to the bottom. The repoitconcluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in fact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent. were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.
WARM WORK. THE BODY-SNATCHERS AND THE DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
WARM WORK. THE BODY-SNATCHERS AND THE DOCTOR. An amusing story is told by an Indian Medical Service man, who, writing to the " British Medical Journal," states that the story was current in his student days. A country doctor, returning from a visit in the small hours of the morn ing, in the time of the " body snatchers," had to pass a secluded burial ground in which a deceased patient had been interred the day be fore. When he reached the wall he saw a horse and trap standing un attended on the road outside. Look ing cautiously over the wall he saw that two men had just disinterred the corpse. Standing in the shadow of the wall he saw them bring out the body and place at in a sitting position on the seat of the trap, so that? when they drove away the body, which they had wrapped in a dark cloak, would in the dim light look like a third man sitting between the other two. They then got over the wall again to fill in the grave. The docror lifted the body down from the trap, laid it und...

MACKEREL IN HEAPS. "NOT AT A GIFT." [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
MACKEREL IN HEAPS. " NOT AT A GIFT." Seen from a boat, looking down into the water, the mackerel were like a dark green river flowing along side in the flood-tide-a river within a river : and across the beach, in the glow of sunset, the hopping brit that had been chased out of the water were like an endless band of gems. Under the splash of an oar the mack erel scattered for a moment, but the smoother motion of the boat they took no notice of. Some had small fish in their mouths. Others worried the bait like a pack of dogs, snapping at it, shaking it. and being hustled out of the way by their fel lows. It was easy that evening to verify what we had long suspected namely, that mackerel take brit or bait not by the tail but by the head. Swiftest of fish, they swim up to and even past their prey, turn partly round, seize it from the side, and swallow it head-first. But there was small sport in catching fish that would not keep off the hook ;. no satisfaction in kill ing what would not ...

'A LADY AND A MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
'A LADY AND A MAN. A story, typical of those people who always know about yourself, is told by the great '"coster-artist," Mr. Albert Chevalier. At a friend's house he took a lady, a stranger, down to dinner. Their introduction had been very hurried, and she evidently had not caught Mr Chevalier's name. During dinner she began to talk about "'Chevalier," and for the fun of the thing the actor scouted any idea of his talent as a performer. Much to his amusement, the lady resented 'his "criticism." He was on the point of making his iden tity known, when, turning round suddenly after saying something es pecially complimentary about his work, she exclaimed, "'Ah I but he's a bad man-a really bad man. I know for a fact that some years ago he deserted his wife and three children-left them to starve 4" Then Chevalier gently explained to her that he was not, and never had been marr. .

The War of 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 28 August 1914
The War of 1870. (BY F. T. H1CKFORD.) The little village of Sadowa in ~Jo hernia became famous in 1866 by the decisive battle fought there on July 3rd between the Prussians and the Austrians. The Austrians were over wlemingly defeated and the result jus tified General Von Moltke's remark to the King of Prussia: 'Your Majesty has won not only the battle but the campaign.' On the 22nd July of 1866 n'eac w;- concluded between.. the. con-. tending notions. The battletof Sadova destroyed the power- of Austria in Ger many, and Prussia became at once a dominant power. The fate of a nation is sometimes decided by a. single bat tie. From the time of Sadown may be traced the unification of Germany, arid when in 1887 Bismarck organised the North German confederation the world at once felt the rise of a strong military power, which would compete o ith France for superiority. Prior to 1866 no foreign policy was possible o ithout, consideration for France at every turn. British statesmen had ac c...
