CHAPTEB V. .Lord JD'Almaine'B shabby, disrepu- j table counterpart sat down to the: substantial repaufc presently brought in by Eenson and ate ravenously—he also did not forget to drink deeply. ' Some of the poor old governor's rare old stuff!' he said to himself, as he drained bi8 glass over and over again. / He smacked his lips with relish. The rich and generous wine seemed to put new life into hitu. The remar kable likeness of Geoffrey bccame if possible more apparent. Having satisfied the craving of the inner man -he leantd back in his chair. His dark eyes travelled round the handsome apartment with' all its evidences of wealth and taste. ' Geoff was always a tasty chap,' he muttered, below his breath. ' Crazy over art and music. By jove 1 what a voice the fellow had, too J Though not so good as mine, folks used to say.

TEH E- C- ANNUAL BALL. Tins fox turn was originally set down (or the 30th May, but the exceedingly wet weather which prevailed at that j time compelled the management to | abandon the date, aiid a postponement J to the 4th July was agreed upon. Up to the morning of Tuesday last it j looked as if a fine evening was going i to "reet the. ball, but the fates were n . - , again adverse, and heavy rain fell duiicg Tuesday and continued all 1 day Wednesday. During the evening the downfall was at its heaviest. Despite the unfavorable pi ale of the elements 45 couples put in an appear ance, and it is reasonable to suppose that had the weather been fine the hall wculd have-been packed, in fact, tiie tickets sold and outstanding were sufficient to do this.

That the midwinter vacation termi nates today and Echool duties will commence on Monday. That farmers and others are strong in the opinion that a suitable draught stallion for Oobargo would be a good spec next season.

Lord D'Almaine's Double. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 6 July 1900

Lord D'AImaine's Double. And then he turned away: some thing very like a groan escaped him. * My God! to think you are my brother.' he exclaimed, bitterly. •Not only your brother, but your twin brother, wbo but for an accident of birth and the matter of a few minutes might have been in your shoes at this very moment! Do you never think of that! Think how the in justice of the cursed law has rained me body and soul. I always envied you, Geoffrey, and sometimes I—I hated you! You were the good, the chosen one, I the black sheep. From our boyhood it was ever so. Faults which were forgiven in you as soon as committed, were in me vi>ited with the most rigorous punishment. .Small wonder that I loved you aot ?' Again the bitter mirthleES laugh. ' You are uvjuat, and you know it. answered the stem voice of Geoffrey. He had seated himself in the old oak •chair, and in the fading light his face loskrd grey and set. The .radiance of the dying sun had "vanished; the room was already in shado...

THE GAY WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 6 July 1900

THE GrkY WORLD 1 t is said that Mrs. Lyne refuses to be addressed ■as Lady Lyne. Site would take the title if site thought she had a right to it; but she claims she hasn't a riyht, that no knight's wife haB, and that she should set au example. What she saya she is entitled to is the prefix "madame," and hence, if this whimsi cality of "ray lady" is to bo respected, she will be known as Madame Lyne, which has a dibtiucUy French flavour ; and, where not French, a suggestion of "ciairvoyancy." But humbug, says the gay world humbug from start to finish. Lady Lyne, while her husband was a plain "tuisiev,'' didn't object to being addres sed as Mrs. Lyric, and, following her argument), the "Mrs." was nob correct, as "Mffl." is an abbreviation of mistress; aud miawese is, correctly speaking, the exclusive prefix of the wife of a squire of high degree, glorified by a coat-of at-ms extending over fourteen genera tions, nnd included in the "Talk of Precedency" among 'gentlemen entitled to bear...

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1900. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 6 July 1900

For the cause that lacie assistance. For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, ylmi the good that we can do. Cobargo, Fjudav, July 6, 1900. The war between Great Britain and the Boers has paused the acute stage, and the time of surprises and reverses for British arms, which punctuated the opening periods of the conflict, has disappeared. The rosult of the fight was never in doubt, but that the Empire had, all along, a bigger con tract on hand than was ever antici pated must be admitted oven by the most infatuated jiugo. And that there ia atill much hard work to bo done is obvious, for the Boers are not of the stuff to finally surronder until they are completely vanquished. Driven from town to town by the irresistible army under Field-Marshal Boberts, the enemy is fast being forced to his ultimate retreat—the wild fastnesses of bis native soil— there to cairy on a guerilla warfare ! until the want of provisions or the j force of superior numbers compols | s...

A Scale which Computes Value [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 July 1900

A Scale which Computes Value A new and ingenious system of weigh* ing goods ia being Introduced. The scale resembles what is known as the platform balance. Instead of mferely indicating the weight in pounds and ounces, as does that instrument* it ascertains and represents the money value of the article weighed. Say that a customer asks for six pounds of bacon at 7|d per lb. The assistant places the piece of bacon on the little marble platform, adjusts the scale to the price per lb by the movement of a little handle, and then poises the balance by sliding a small weight along it. The correct weight of the bacon is found wben the equilibrium is obtained, and the money value Is indicated underneath. 'Whether the bacon weighs more or lesB than six pounds depends upon the assistant who has cut it, but the machine makes no mistake. The exact monetary value, at the rate per lb. is shown; and the customer can see it (provided the scale is on the counter), for the figures are indicated at th...

HOW RICH IS KRUGER. Those who are in the habit of thinking of Mr. Ktuger as a mere farmer may bs surprised to hear tbat he is a millionaire at least-once. How many times over that nice round eum has accumulated in bis savings it is impos sible to say.
