CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915
CHAPTER VI. "The strain on Lady Alicia's nerves was no imaginary one; and nothing could have been more helpful to her where her husband was concerned than the fact that she was ill. Margaret had left her mother's room in a very troubled condition of mind, and might have given way to real unhappiness if she had not chanced to meet her sister. Dolly Torrington was of quite a dif ferent calibre to Margaret; though there was a great deal of her. mother in her, yet she was at the same time too young to be hedged about with prejudices and pride as Lady Alicia was. She saw at once that something -was wrong with her sister, and in a very little while she had gat all the truth from Margaret. The two girls, had gone to Mar garet's bedroom, and Dolly sat on the bed swinging her pretty little feet as she sat listening to all that her sis ter had to tell her. "Look here, Meg, you must give mother time," she said. "0£ course, I have seen what' was coming. It has been as plain to me as a pike staf...
THE POULTRY YARD. POULTRY CRANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915
THE POULTRY' YARD. 1 POULTRY CRANKS. A poultry crank is a man who has a special liking for one kind of fowl. We owe a great deal to poultry cranks. They are the men who have improved the different breeds up to a point that makes poultry raising pro fitable. It would be difficult for any one to make money out of a mongrel flock,such as we were accustomed to seeing thirty or forty years ago. Cranks are the men who have bred up to the 200-egg hen. Cranks are the men who have spent their time and money building all sorts and fashions of poultry houses, until the different theories have been thoroughly worked out and the fallacies exploded. It may be that cranks have leaued a little too hard ia faddy directions at times; for instance, in the color of feathers. But plumage is improved by a close study of feathers. When a man stud ies the color of feathers he soon be gins to find out what makes feathers. He learns that feathers don't make the bird; it is the bird that makes the feathers; a...
WAR AND THE WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915
WAR AND THE WOMAN. The soldiers are away to war, the sailors to the sea, And we are proud of them and sure, as we have cause to be; But beneath, the pennons waving and the clamor of the start Are the weeping and the craving of the woman's breaking heart. ] We would not hold them if we could; I we glory in their cause, I They go to war as soldierB should, amid our brave applause; But beneath the din of leaving and the triumph of the start' Is the desolated grieving of the wo man's breaking heart. A time looms dim before us when our men return from war, From the bugles' broken chorus and ' tfie cruisers by the shore; To most, reunion spelling joy that drowns the early smart, But—the tears will still be welling in some woman's broken heart. . i —Agnes- M. Miall. What appear to be calamities are often the sources of good fortune.
Learning the Art. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915
Learning the Art. A commercial traveller had been talking his hardest, most eloquently, most persuasively, for nearly an hour to a shrewd old country business man. The old fellow seemed con vinced and pleased, and the traveller thought he was sure of an order. But the old man said: "There's ma lad Henry. Ah'd laike him to hear what ye have to say. Will ye coom this afternoon and go over your talk again?" "Certainly, sir—with pleasure!" re plied the traveller heartily, and at the hour appointed presented himself again for the interview with father and son. Again he went over the points of the article he had to sell— forcibly, eloquently, persuasively. Never had he acquitted himself of a finer "selling talk." Wheal he had finished, the old man turned to his son and said enthusias tically: "Do you hear that, Henry? Well, now, that's the way I want je to sell our goods when you go on the road!" Phelim O'Rourke had been married only a week when he discovered that his wife was inclined to...
THE DUM-DUM BULLET. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915
THE DUM-DUM BULLET. The dum-dum expanding bullet is named after Dum-Dum in India, where the bullets are manufactured for the Indian Army. Dum-Dum was the centre of the first open manifes tation against greased cartridges in the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. The use of such bullets is barred by Clause 5 of the Geneva Convention, which makes it illegal "to employ arms of a nature to cause unnecessary suffer ing," and by a Hague declaration which "renounces the use of bullets which expand or flatten easily in the human body."
SUNSET AND DAWN CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915
SUNSET AND DAWN By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER V. Madame Ducheron had gone back to her desk after Lady Alicia had left her, and she had sat there tapping the table with her fingers for a few moments in silence. She was con scious of having received a blow. Not until this moment had she realised how much she had built upon this interview with Lady Alicia. From the first, when she had re alised that this proud woman of so ciety was slipping gradually into her hands, the scheme she had proposed to Lady Alicia had taken shape, and each day it had grown a little more slowly defined. Of all the women she knew (and there were many of them as much in her power as Lady Alicia was) there was no one in Madame Ducheron's opinion who stood quite where Lady Alicia Tor rington stood. This other woman had everything which the world desired. She was of high birth, with splendid family connec...

When Music Was Needed. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
When Music Was Needed. It was a beautiful New Year's morning in the Stone Age. "Hey, Strougarm," said Hairyhead, "lend me your crowbar, will you?" "Whatty ye want with it?" asked Strongarm. "I want to take it home," informed Hairyhead, "to turn over a new leaf." A benevolent old gentleman was passing down a baclc street In one of our football-loving towns, when he saw a number of boys playing the great game. One of the boys was far smarter than his companions with the ball, and at last scored a good goal by kicking the ball through a space marked by two tin cans. The old gentleman thought he would like to reward the boy for his smartness, and with this intention called the boy to him, and asked whether he would like sixpence or a box of sweets. "Let's have the sweets, mister, please," he said; "for if I take the 'tanner' J shall be a professional, and I don't want to be one of them for a bit." Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep-it from themselves. There is s...
POWER OF WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
POWER OF WILL. Many a man -who pride3 himself on his will-power is failing to use it in the really- critical issues of life. He will set a high standard for himself in some important detail of every-day living, such as rigid punctuality, or scrupulous care in his person or dress; or persistent physical exer cise; it takes character and it makes character. But when it comes to moral self-conquest, that same man is ohen the veriest w'eakling. He may know that a certain indulgence is wrong and harmful, yet the idea of summoning against it that iron- will of his, on which he rightly prides himself in secular affairs, seems not to occur to him. Will-power is one of man's richest gifts. What a la mentable waste of wealth it is when we do not use this power for spiritual victories! "Now, then, young man," said the angry farmer, "didn't you see that board when you came trespassing in these woods?" "Yes, sir," said the culprit meekly. "Well, what did it say?" "I dunno. I was too polite to re...
FACTS FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
FACTS FOR FARMERS. No one can "tell what a power there is in imitation. Every good farmer leaves his mark on all the folks around him. Young, growing animals have more hearty appetites than mature ones, but this is because the impulse of their natures " is to grow. To stand still is unnatural for the young. To sell all the hay and chaff off the farm is to sell the fertility off the place; fed to stock it returns a double profit in milk, thrifty stock, and in manure. The large numbers of unskilled laborers who drift from the country districts to the large towns waste and vanish in a whirlpool of misery, and their children grow up stunted and emaciated. A laborer m the country is unquestionably better off than a laborer in a large town or city. No money spent upon the farm is so profitable as that which makes the wife and children fond and proud of their home. Every farmer ought to have a small experiment station on his farm. Thus, at small cost, he can measure results with much or li...
Coming Into Line. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
Coming Into Line. Two smartly-dressed young men were discussing the present economic situation with a third whose holiday suit, straggling hair, and grimy hands betokened a holiday at some distance from a hairdresser's and a hasty journey home. "Well," observed number one, "the pater says it's not only sensible but it's patriotic to economise just mow, so he and I have given up the two 'B's' and the mater the two Ts.'" His hearers looked puzzled till he 1 explained that the initial letters indi cated respectively "beer and baccy" and "tea and toast." "Since you put it that way," said number two, "I've dropped the two 'C's'—coffee and cigarettes." (The third man, evidently feeling out of it, began to explain that he had only just got back from the North of Scotland and hadn't really had time, you know, to think it out, but of course he'd have to come into line, etc. "Don't you worry, old chap," inter posed number one. "You go on just as you are, and everybody'll know that you're econ...
CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
CHAPTER VIII. Rupert Kentley and Margaret met the following day as the girl had de creed. They made no secret of this meeting, but strolled up and down under the trees and sat and talked almost within eight of Lady Alicia's bedroom window. As a matter of fact, the mother knew at once that Kentley had come. She sent for her husband when her maid brought her this information. She was lying on a couch, and in|the shadowed light she looked ^ery white and ill. Sir John sat beside her holding her delicate hand and devouring her face with anxious eyes. "You are better, dearest? Tell me you are better?" he asked. She smiled faintly. "Yes, I am better; but I am still very much upset. John, dear, you must be firm. You must stand with me." He caressed her hand and kissed it and nodded his head. "Yes, Alicia, darling, I will be strong. I will stand with you. What am I to do?" "Rupert Kentley is here now. He and Margaret are in the garden. I don't want any scene. Don't put any definite obstacle ...

By EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) , AH Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. Leah noticed quickly that her mother was very quiet that night. Madame Ducheron was late in driving' up from town, aind, in fact, had tele graphed through telling her girl not to wait for her dinner. But Leah for once had lost her appetite, and there fore she had not obeyed her mother. She was sitting listlessly by the long open window in the drawing room when the car arrived and Ma dame Ducheron got out. The hard face of the woman of business soften ed perceptibly as she met her child and kissed her tenderly. "Dearest," she said, "I am very sorry to be so late, but Pauline, my head woman, is -not well; she had to go home this afternoon, and I had to take on all her duties." "I have waited dinner for you," said Leah. She never took the faint est interest in her mother's business; in fact, she had commenced to resent the existence of that ...

NO MORE FAT PEOPLF. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
HO MORE FAT PEOPlf. Most fat people seem to think that the only way to take off fat is to use dangerous drags, follow a starvation diet or take strenuous excercise. But all this is nonsence, and, thanks to the recent discovery of an eminent scientist, thousands of men abd women are taking off several pounds of useless fat a week, by simply rubbiag on to the fat part —hips, arms, chin, or abdomen—-a simple lotion made by pouring a cnp of j hot water over a dram of quassia chips *, let it stand for a minute, then strain through a cloth, and add 8 ounces of Girola Bark Extract. Pour the mixture into a bottle and apply night and morn ing, rubbing it in with the hands for about 10 minutes, using a circular mo tion, and the fat will almost seem to melt away before your very eyes. The ingredients, which are inexpensive, may be had of any chemist,- and the results obtained are really remarkable.
Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 20 February 1915
In their keen rivalry to make the modern motor-cycle even more perfect than it is at-the pesent there is one ob vious improvement that the British manufacturers seem to overlook, and that is automatic lubrication. It is true that some makers have shown enterprise in this direction, bat the fact remains that the great majority still provide en gines that are lubricated by guesswork. In the hands of experienced riders the present hand-pump or drip-feeds are; quite satisfactory, but the new fider can not possibly, - judge the exact amount jot- oil retjuirea, and' consequently he either under lubricates or swamps" his •^nk : caae with oily which Tesults in worn: bearings . or a badly carbonised engine. Nearly every rider, including those who have owned machines for some years, over-oil merely because they want to be on the safe side, and quite a number do not feel comfortable unless they can see blue smoke from the ex haust. This is regrettable, for the somewhat evil smelling smoke does...
