EDIBLE DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
EDIBLE 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 is 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 the 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 occ...
WAR AND THE MONK. History Being Repeated. Threatening the Fabric of Civilisation [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
WAR AND THE MONK. History Being Repeated. Threatening the Tabric cf Civilisation It is recorded that in a monastery thj.;. once crownc.l i!ia summit of a:. Uil but inaccessible peak in the \iosges luouuiains an aged monk named Jo hannes Talpa, noted both for liis piety and his learning, had lor many years been engaged :n the compilation" o£ a history in twelve volumes, when a frightful war broke out and devastated all the surrounding region. That was centuries ago, even before the memor able clashes at Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt—quite unremembered in these di.ys of Anglo-French fraternity. Coming to the defence of the abLey against the invading enemy, the sol diers sought to make it an impreg nable fortress. They pierced port holes in the walls. They melted the lead of the chapel roof into balls to be hurled with their slings. The ene my at last succeeded in reaching the abbey and in laying siege. They at tached long ropes to the stone walls, but the ropes broke from the weight u...
The Touch of Genius. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
The Touch of Genius. Sandy Macpherson started to build a small outhouse of bricks. After the usual plan of bricklayers, lio worked from the inside, and, as he had the material close beside him, the walls were rising fast when noou arrived, and with it his sou 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: "IIoo d'ye think I'm gettin' on?" "Famous, l'eyther; 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, ho said: ".Man, Jock, you've got a gran' lieid [ on ye! Ye'll be an architect yet, as i sure's yer feyther's a builder." | i
SWITZERS MUST WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
SWITZERS MUST WORK. I Switzerland is a country tliat has a , short and easy method of dealing with , the lazy man who is work-shy. The Swiss act upon the theory that a man who is unemployed is, if left to him self, prone to become unemployable, . and that for a community to allow any one of its members who is cap I able of work to remain unemployed is . a public waste. In industrial Swit : zerland there is no place for the idle, i It is considered the duty of the ] authorities to assist in every way pos j sible persons honestly seeking em i ployment, and it is also held to be I their duty to punish the work shirker j and to force him to earn his bread | before he may cat it. No toleration is I shown to the loafer, begging is pro I 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 un employed and remain indefinitely in the ranks without even making an ef fort to secure employm...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To keep suet fresh, cliop rough::, ami sprinkle with a little granulate0 sugar. A pinch of salt on the tongue, fol lowed ten minutes after by a drill's of cold water, often cures a headache When baking potatoes, cut a snir from the end of each. This will hi out the moisture and make them av pear mealy. When cooking vegetables never al low the water to stop boiling all tin time they are in the saucepan. To dj so will make them sodden. After washing lamp-chimneys, try polishing them with dry salt. ThL: gives the glass,a brilliant shine and prevents it from cracking. A good treatment for unduly moist hands is to bathe them frequently i:i warm water to which a little alum or vinegar has been added. When you'desire to keep meat an.l have no ice on which to keep it, wrap it in a cloth wet with vinegar. Wash the vinegar off before cooking tlr? meat. When ink is spilt on the carpet rub a cut lemon over the stain immediate ly, and it will entirely disappear and not injure t...
IV. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
IV. Sir John Woodstock, having dis posed of his entire business as a go ing concern, stood for the last time in the snug private room where his millions had 'been made. He had no one now to work for, no interest in life; all his dreams and hopes and plans had gone awry—only the money was left, and for that he did not care one iota. He was a man of 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 all 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 of his working life had beeii spent. With indescribable 'bitterness he re alised that none of the large staff of clerks felt regret at parting with him. Instead, they tri...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
III. As Sir Jolin read the letter his face paled with emotion; then his 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 on 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 'nterest 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. Consternation reigned throughout the whole office when the news of the loss was made known, tout 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 tlieir recovery." An hour later, as no trace of them could 'be 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 stopping on the gangway of the Ostend 'boat, in spite or his indignation and vehement de nials that he had stolen anything. At the first...
Appropriate Part. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 fo...
"THANK HEAVEN, THERE IS NO NAPOLEON." Mr. Bonar Law's Patriotic Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
"THANK HEAVEN, THERE IS NO NAPOLEON." Mr. Bonar Law's Patriotic Speech. "If you ask me what we are fight ing for," said Mr. Bonar Law, "I re ply that we are fighting for the hon or and, what with the honor is bound up always, the interest o£ 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 he 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 be 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 woifld have this to face; and tha...
CAUSES OF GREAT WARS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
CAUSES OF GREAT WARS. The Austro-Servian war was no doubt largely due to tho murder of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his consort at Serajovo. Similarly it was the assassination, in March, 1S97, of tile Turkish chief of gendarmie by tho Macedonian brigand leader, Nicholas Martinovitch, coupled with the fact of his being shielded by the Greek Government after he had taken refuge in Thessaly, 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 1350, 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 tal...

THE PEACEMAKER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
THE PEACEMAKER. i. Sir John Woodstock frowned as he read the name on the card in his hand, bit his lip and hesitated beCore 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 lie 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. Hushed 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 Mr. Royal Drummond?" lie said in a harsh, almost fierce t...
