The Sau Mountains (British Somaliland). Nov. S. Abyssinia-I am glad to be out of it-is a Christian country. It is popu lated by the least pleasing of black races, and has also a population of witches. wizards. gnomes, goblins, and a large and varied assortment of de vils. Even if you refuse to believe in fairies, good or bad, you wilt believe. when you have travelled in ,Menelek's land. in the devils of Abyssinia. You can see and smell and hear some of them; and I have even shot one. elo was a dust devil, and I shot him four days ago. Do you remember, in the travellers' tales you read as a child (the Bruce and Mungo Park and Dr. Livingstone kind of book. Lmean), stories of huge pillars of sand, seeming to reach from elrth to sky. which whirled across the face of the land; and how, when these appear. people must muffle their faces in their cloaks and cast themselves down upon the ground tiII they are gone ? Well. Abyssinla seems to be the very home and breeding-place of these sand-pi...

FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMIAN CHALLENGE? The French Cabinet, with faith in its strength, proposed a vote of confidence this evening on the question of the £52,00000000 mllitary loan to meet the German Challenge, and the measure was passed by 291 votes to 270 (says the Paris correspondent of "Tho Daily Express" of December 2).

"If the Chamber does not vote it," he said, "it will be another Govern ment which will make the same de mand." Finally the Brousese amndment wrs rejected by . large majorlty, and just befo...
HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 4 February 1914
IlOUSES AND LIYES PENALTIES PAID. (By L. G. Chlozza Money, in "The Daily News.") The death-rate of the United King lom Is 14,000 a year o.f the population, rhls rate expresses the averaging of ome wide variatlions-variations which express the difference between good sousing and bad housing. There are places where the death-rate is about 20 per 1000: there are other places where it falls below 10 per 1000. !t is easier to state these things than to bring home to the mind the full re llcsation of their meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrible import. To show what a death-rate may be under decent conditions, that of East hourne is about 10 to 1000. That also is sbout the death-rate of Hampstead. It is also the death-rate of New Zealand. WVhat would it mean to the United ?ingdom if the death-rate of the whole country could be reduced to this figure. shown to be a possible figure by actual experience? It would mean a saving in the United Kingdom of 184,000 lives. That is to say...

The personnel that was needed ito deal with naval matters during the building up of the fleet and in the initial stages of the organisation of Admiral Henderson's scheme was of quite a different character from that which is necessary now that Admiral Patcy has arrived in Australian waters and the serious business of training the officers'and men of the Royal Aus trallan Navy has been commenced in real earnest. Among the changes which are in contemplation is the reconstruction of the Naval Board. The Government hopes to obtain the services as first naval member of a British Admiral of high standing, who will be willing, for a limited period, at all events, to su pervise the important work of ...

IThe Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of '"Theo MIoney-Lender," "l1a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserred.) CHAPTER VIII.-Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting M1i chael Thorne's offer of marriage was Indeed unconventional. She had im molated herself on the family altar for the family's sake. or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam fly--her motiler. She might have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty of his theft. Quite frankly, she had grown to hate her father; .she despised her brother. Beryl she loved; but Beryl with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorne. But her mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorneme had suppliedl the wherewithal. Had Queenle been free to earn her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a...
