The wi--' nan who is on the alert .fer a him. -and to rher daughter is a subject for stale jokes arnd ill-considered laughter. For why should not the mother who loves her child and wishes the. best for her future be in a sense a match. maker?

"Yes." said Tom, with an angry liok, "so 1 was, and had the best chance, too." "So I heard. How did it happen that Townsend' got ahead of you?" "It was all a mistake,"' said Tom, with a groan.

ANOTHER ALPINE TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 February 1915

ANOTHER ALPINE TUNNEL The Lotschberg Tunnel, nine and a quarter miles long, is now very nearly finished, after six years labor.. Join ing the Kander Valley and the Rhone Valley in the Alps,, it will be the third .longest tunnel in Europe. The tunnel has been pierced with the greatest difficulty. In July, 1908, the River Kander entered the turnel. and drowned twenty-five workmen, and a new route had to -be devised at a greater cost. The whole of this new route, from Switzerland to Ttaly, has been bored through limestone and granite rock, and travellers will now be able to go from one valley to an other in twelve minutes. Formerly the journey took as-many hours. Part of the work had to be carried out amid great heat. A great deal of hot rock was met with, and the Italian Workmen were compelled to work in an atmosphere of 95 deg.
