CHAPTER XI. The Inquest. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

CHAPTER XI. The Inquest. At the sight of the weapon held by Burval, both Hector and Hilda rose as if moved by springs. The man stared with dread in his heart; but the woman looked as though she was merely surprised, as indeed she was. There was no sign of guilt either in her expression or in her reply. "I don't know how Mr. Jade's re volver comes to be here," 6he said, when amazement permitted speech. "This is the first time I have seen it." ' "I think not," said Burval swiftly. "You saw it when Jade drew it out of his pocket at Card-crescent." Hilda nodded calmly. "I remem ber; I took the revolver from him and threw it on the ground." "Did you pick it up again?" t "No." "Then how does it come to be here?" "I can't say. I am as surprised as you are. Mr. Rayburn asked me who picked up the revolver after you took Mr. Jade home. I said then what I say now, that I did not know." She turned to Rayburn for confirmation. "Yes; I remember asking Miss Par ker that question and receiving that...

Warton shrugged his shoulders pon derously. "I am only suggesting a possible motive why Colin should have been shot. You lcnow what took place in this very house when Colin appeared in a disgraceful state of in toxication. Now it appears that lie has been shot in Sheen-street, and it is there that the woman who threat ened him lives. Also she was at home last night, for you allowed her to go. On the face of it, the affair looks suggestive." "It is all rubbish," said Miss Tre vor, lying down again with a look of contempt, "for Hilda is not the wo man to commit a crime. She did talk ...

A MARSHAL OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

A MARSHAL OF FRANCE, In the last desperate scenes of Wat erloo there was no more outstanding figure than Marshal Ney as, on foot, his clothes torn with, bullets, his face black with powder, he called vainly on the fugitives to "Come and see how a marshal of France could die on the field of battle." He was soon to show how a marshal of France could die—but not on the field of battle. For his desertion at the critical point Or Napoleon's ad vance from Grenoble the Bourbons had no forgiveness. Arrested after the occupation o£ Paris by the Allies, he was tried, con victed, and condemned to be shot. On December 7, 1815, all efforts to procure a pardon having failed, he was led to execution in the Place de Chevreuse. The time was early morn ing, and the Marshal—"plain Michel Ney, soon to be a little dust," as tie remarked when the official appointed to read his sentence began to recite his high-sounding titles—was dressed in a blue overcoat and felt hat. He was himself—"courage, self-resp...

A GIRL'S DEVOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

A GIRL'S DEVOTION. While the last Franco-Prussian war was at its height a young French peasant girl heard that her brother was ill with typhoid fever at Sois 601)s, which was fifty miles from her home. She decided to go and nurse him, notwithstanding that the enemy swarmed in the district and she would have to walk every yard of the way. Soon after her arrival at Sois sons the Germans surrounded the place, and during their bombardment a shell crashed through the room in which the patient lay. This so alarm ed the girl that she determined to take her brother home—to carry him iiflj miles, a cart or other vehicle being unprocurable. So, taking the sick man on her back, she set out on her long and arduous journey. Immediately she came to the Ger man lines she was stopped, but on hearing her story, and seeing ample proof of its truth, the besiegers al lowed her. to pass. Strapped round her waist the brave girl also carried additional blankets for her brother's comfort at night, it being...

DECEPTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

DECEPTIVE. "Appearances are strangely decep ti\ i?," remarked an old farmer, who held the position of superintendent of a village Sunday school. "I remember a family taking up their residence in the village some years ago, and in it were three of the best-behaved lads it has ever . been my fortune to know. That is, they appeared to be well behaved. - They attended Sunday school, were gener ally first there, and won illuminated texts for reciting 'Dare to be a Daniel' and other hymns. They were really model youngsters. "One Saturday afternoon I was turning some cart-horses out into a meadow some bit away from my house, and, as usual, left the bridles in the hedge ready to fetch the horses away on Monday morning. I noticed one of my model scholars, who was; blackberrying near by, watching me intently, but gave no particular thought to the matter. "On the next afternoon only about a dozen children were present at Sun day school, whereas the normal at tendance was at least seventy. 1 ma...

MANURING FOR IRRIGATED LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

MANURING FOR IRRIGATED LANDS. Artificially-applied fertilisers are more necessary for, and play a larger part in, the development and success of an irrigation farm than in the case of farms dependent on the rain fall, because—(1) An irrigation farm produces larger crops, and the soil consequently becomes more quickly exhausted if the supply of plant-food is not replenished. (2) The soil of an irrigation farm also loses a cer tain amount of plant food through leaching by the water. (3) There is no risk of the manure lying unavail able as plant-food or blighting off crops through lack of moisture. Of the chemical constituents which go to form plant-food, there are many which are present "in the soil in such quantities that they never become ex hausted. There are others, however, which are liable to be used up, and with an artificial supply, of which most soils need to be replenished from time to time. They are nitro gen, phosphoric acid, potash, and lime. The cheapest method of sup pl...

WHY HUSBANDS LEAVE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

WHY HUSBANDS LEAVE HOME. Wliy do so many husbands run away? A Chicago statistician, con nected with the Bureau of Public Welfare in that city, has been trying to answer the question. After investigating thousands of cases of desertions he finds that the Husband's action can usually be ascribed to one of the following four causes:— Ill-health and' peevishness of the wife. Slouchiness of the wife either in her own person or in her housekeep ing methods, or both. . The wife's habit of nagging or gos siping. Dislike for children on the wife's part. This statistician found that the strongest incentive to reconciliation in cases of family discord is almost invariably the child. He also found that very few wives are deserted who are.— Physically big and mentally cheer ful. Able to contribute to, the family in come either by outside labor or by frugality in home management. Affectionate and home-loving. Sympathetic, and considerate of their husbands. The very interesting and valuable statis...

EAT ONIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

EAT ONIONS. Eight persons out of every ten eat too much, and thereby die too early. Nine persons out of every ten eat too much meat, and thereby suffer in; health and pocket. And nowadays ten persons out of every ten—for financial if not for stomachic reasons—are searching for a substitute for meat. The subtsitute is—onions. Like other things, they ai'e dearer now, but are still from one-fifth to one-seventh the price of meat. And —note this—71b. of onions are worth in food value—that is, in nutriment and sustaining power—ll^lb. of meat. You can pay 11/3 for meat or 9d. for onions, and in the latter you have all the food value there is in the former. Regular onion-eaters rarely, if ever, fall ill from infectious diseases, and they are singularly immune from prac tically all ailments. Onions, too, are a good specific for the complexion. They should be boil ed whole in milk—drink the latter— or steamed, and eaten with bread and butter and cheese. Then they make a satisfying and nutrit...

FACTS ABOUT TWINS. Do They Always Resemble Each Other? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

FACTS ABOUT TWINS. Do They Always Resemble Each Other? Take 900 average babies. There wll be ten pairs of twins among them. This remark applies to England and the United States. In Italy or Brazil the proportion of twins would be much less. For some reason that nobody knows, infants in duplicate are not nearly so common in warm latitudes : as in cold countries. Relatively to population, twins come into the world in Russia three times as often as in Spain. The tendency to produce more than one child at a birth runs in families. It is handed down from mother to daughter. If the former has given birth to one or more sets of twins, the latter is rather likely to do the same thing. Triplets in the United States occur once in every 7,910 births. Once in every 371,125 births the proud—or per haps indignant father—is informed that his family has been suddenly aug mented by four simultaneous offspring. There are in medical history authentic records of twenty-nine instances in which quintuple...
