WONDER OF LIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914

WONDER OF LIGIIHTS "If you had gone to sleep seventy years ago anrid awoke to-day what would be the most astonishing thing? "In his 'Mild-Victorian Memories' Mr It. E. Francllon answers the question It is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, the paraffin lamp, which smelt horribly, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago the light of the home was a candli or two encouraged by snuffers. And this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzl??cd by the electric lights that turn midnight into noonday. Our housee and streets have abolished night," says "The Westminster," "and the coming of light would be the wonder of the man who had gone to sleep with a tal low candle and waked to-turn on the switch."

KAISER ON "OUR PROGRESS" [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914

KAISER ON "OUR PROIRESS" The Emperor and Empress to-day visited the Rathaus. and were wel comed with an address (says Reu ter's Mfunich correspondent on Decem ber 16.) In his reply the Emperor said: "Almighty God willed that It shonuld be vouchsafed to our fathers to sow on the blood-drenched battlefield the seed which has borne such glorious Iruit. The paths for all German races to un hindered development of their ideal and material forces were then made smooth for all the German tribes. In addition to these favorable preliminary conditions, the present generation had enjoyed the blessings of a long and un disturbed peace. 'Perhaps there is justification for asking seriously whether this favor of the times is being rightly used, whether the sons are worthy of the fathers, whether our patri mony is being properly developed even under the strong protection of our splendid defence force on land and water." The Emperor said a glance at the enormous progress of Munich was cal culated to...

QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914

QUININE OUTJPUT LIDITED Quinine. the price of which has Just been advanced, is one of a number of drugs whose values are not wholly gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. The drug is obtained from Cinchona bark. which is no named because It was introduced into medicine In 1638 by Countess Chinchon, the wife of the Viceroy of Peru. who was herself cured of a fever by Its aid. In the whole sale drug markets the bark is still call ed Chinchona. but the pharmacopoelal name is Cinchona. Until comparatively recent years the supply of bark was obtained from South America. and it is in fact still commonly known as Peruvian bark. But about fifty years ago an Eng lish traveller obtained some Cinchona seeds and brought them to England, where they were eventually bought by the Dutch Government. They were planted in the Island of Java, and af ter a long series of experiments the Dutch Government succeeded in cultt vating trees which will yield two or even three times as much quinine as theb...

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914

The Heart of a Girl By H?ENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.-Continued. Thorne's hand closed over the bank-note. The general public had con signed the Hasted bank robbery to the limbo of forgotten things. The police had pIgeon-holed it. Only a very small portion of the money stolen, in the shape of notes concealed In Stan more's bedroom, had been recovered at the time. The police theory had been, and was, that the bulk, composed mostly of notes, bonds and securities, the greater part being more or less negotiable with caution, might after a time filter back into circulation, probably on the Continent. The race course was another recognised place for the getting rid of stolen notes. The police were pretty sure on one sub jfect, whether Stanmore had invented the story of Roy Stannard to distract attention from his real confederate, or had worked the robbery single handed; when Stanmore had served his time h...

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 11 February 1914

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEIIMPLOEYMJENT THAN SINCB 1907. President Wilson expects to sign the Currency Bill in about a fortnight, so that the nation may have this long wished-for and much discussed mea sure for giving greater freedom and flu Idity to credit as its Christmas present Zor 1913 (says the New York correspon dent of "The Dally News," December 9). The delay in inducing the Senate to end Its dellberations due to the bank ers' fear that the Bill would estab lish too much political control, has been one of the chief obstacles to the general resumption of business activity. Indeed. industrial conditions, as indicated by the railway returns, the Investment market, and the number of laborers out of work, are extremely depressed. It is stated that there are more unem ployed in the Middle West as well as the Eastern States than in any year since 1907. This applies particularly to railways, in consequence of the re trenchment policy by most of the com panies, while reports from Chicag...
