Belgian Relief Fund. MEETING AT LINTON. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
MEETING AT LINTON. A well-attended meeting, convened by Cr Kennedy and Mr E. D. Hitchins, was held on Monday evening at the Shire Hall. Cr Kennedy was voted to the chair. The Chairman, in opening the meeting, drew a graphic picture of the privations and sufferings of the Belgian people, especially in the great cities. The Hans had sprang on the Belgian nation like a tiger on its prey. Belgium was not an aggressive country ; she only wanted to live under her own institutions and laws, There were said to be a million and a half actually starving. It would be a shame if Linton did not join in the general movement for the relief of these unhappy people. The question was how could, assistance best be rendered ? He thought direct giving would be better than getting up concerts, etc. Ho one in this district was suffering from hun ger, and all were comfortably clad. The Belgian army had stemmed the tide of invasion, and the Allies owed them a deep debt of gratitude. One course would be to p...
WOMAN'S WORLD. British Women's Emergency Corps. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
WOMAN'S WORLD. By "Celia." British Women's Emergency Corps. The women of England are astound ing their enemies and delighting their friends. They are doing man's part, and womnil's. The emergency corps has revealed a power of organisation that was never attributed to women. Within 24 hours of the declaration of war it sprang mto being, and com menced operations. It brought under control immense numbers of helpers whose energies might otherwise have run to sheer waste. Ten thousand are now enrolled. The first aim was to place at the national disposal women doctors, dispensers, trained nurses, in j terpreters, commissariat experts, j cooks, motorists, cyclists, motor-bus drivers and conductors, and women' to take the place of men where neces sary. Women constables were placed in the streets to look after women and children, and refugees. One of the proclaimed objects now is to prevent unemployment and its miseries, and to guard the interests of paid women workers by directing voluntar...
KNEW NO FEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
KNEW NO FEAR. A Prussian regiment, during the war of 1870, took possession of Bou gival, and put up a telegraph wire be tween that village and, Versailles. On the following day they found that this wire had been cut. It was repaired and again discovered to have been cut. This happened for five succes sive times. At last a gardener, sus pected of the dead, was brought be fore a military tribunal and was questioned. "Did you cut our wire?" "Yes, I did," was the reply. "Why did you do it?" "Because you are the enemy." "If we set you free, ■will you do it again?" • "Yes." "Why?" "Because I am a Frenchman." The gardener was condemned to death, and his fellow-citizens collect ed four hundred pounds for his ran som. "It is not worth it," said the man, "for I should begin again to-morrow." In 4 the following September he died for his country.
SUNSET AND DAWN CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
SUNSET AND DAWN *y EFFIE ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published, by arrangement with ^ard, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb..) All Rights Reserved. V CHAPTER X. Margaret was sitting out in one of her favorite corners of the old gar dens when her father arrived at the Cloisters. Sir John inquired for Spence; he was anxious to see Margaret, and yet, at the same time, he shrank from meeting his daughter. Even the charm of his well-beloved home had no power to soothe him in this mo ment. When Margaret's maid came to him, Sir John took her "^to one of the rooms and closed the door. '"I want to know if Miss Margaret has heard the news?" he asked. Spence looked at Sir John and be gan to feel herself tremble. "I don't know what you mean, sir," she said. "There has been no news, at least, I've" not heard of any; but the late letter-bag hasn't been brought up yet." Sir John almost groaned. Then he took from one of his pockets a news paper, and he gave it to Spence. "Read that," he said. He...
Only Natural [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
Only Natural Professor Sudbury, who was ex tremely near-sighted, went to the bar ber's, sat down in the barber's chair, took off his glasses, and allowed him self to be shaved. When the artist was done with him he did not move, and for a moment nobody disturbed him. But other customers began to arrive and the chair was needed. The heed barber, suspecting that his learn ed patron had fallen asleep, ashed his boy to waken him. The professor over | heard the order. "No, my good man," he said, "I am not asleep. The fact is, I am fright fully near-sighted. When I took off my glasses just now I was no longer able to see myself in the mirror oppo site. Naturally, I supposed I had al ready gone home." Wife. "What would you do, George, if you were left a widower?" Hub: "Oh, I suppose the same as you would if you were left a widow!" Wife: "You horrid wretch! And you told me you could never care for anybody else!" A girl, reading in a paper that fish was excellent brain food, wrote to the edit...
CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
CHAPTER XII. Quite unconsciously Leah "was a valuable ally in this position of af fairs to Lady Alicia. It was more than probable thatv if Petkoff had not been a little more than interested in the girl who had been brought to his notice so unexpectedly, matters would have been made extremely un pleasant to Lady Alicia; but though he never swerved in his determina tion to marry Margaret, though when he stopped to analyse his reasons he could give himself mo very satisfac tory ones for the curious infatuation which this girl had roused in him, he was by no means averse to amusing himself with Leah. "fears before, certain circumstan- ; ces had put it in the power of Rachel i Ducheron and her husband to render ; a very big service to this man. He j had not then laeen the great person- j age he now was; indeed, he had had little hope of holding such a high po sition in the social world and in the | world of wealth. It is justN possible that Petkoff might not have troubled himself about M...
CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
CHAPTER XI. The following day Leah had an in-! terview with her mother. Madame Ducheron called very early and ostensibly to attend on Ma dame Slivinski to take an order; and it was inot until she was alone with her daughter in her room that she ventured to let her professional man ner fall from her; then she took Leah in her arms and kissed her passion ately. , Rachel Ducheron did not deceive herself. She knew and she had al ways known that when Leah was launched in the social world the girl would be lost to herself; and a faint little smile that had something of bit terness in it curled about her lips now as she noticed that there was al ready a change in Leah. It almost seemed to the mother as though the girl half-resented being kissed by her; but such was the power of her love aiad. her ambition that she kept this locked in her heart. "I shall not be able to come and see you unless you come to the es tablishment to order new things." "I am going to Lady Alicia iTor rington's hous...
AN ADMISSION OF DEFEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
AN ADMISSION OF DEFEAT. Ever since flags were used in war, it has been the custom to have the emblem of the superior or conquering nation above that of the inferior or vanquished. When an army found it self hopelessly beaten it hauled its flag down far enough for the flag of the victors to be placed above it on the same pole. That was a token not only of submission, but of respect. In those days, when a famous soldier died flags were lowered out of respect to his memory. The custom long ago passed into common use. The flag flying at half-mast is a sign that one is dead who was worthy of universal respect. The space left above the flag is for the flag of the great con queror of all—the angel of death.
GERMANY'S MISSING QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
GERMANY'S MISSING QUALITY. Chivalry is a ■word to "which there seems to be nothing to correspond in the Teuton tongue. Perhaps because the Germans as a nation do not play games they cannot appreciate the niceties of the greatest game of all —-war. One can hardly imagine them acting as did the French on one oc casion in the Peninsular War. The British troops were compelled to retreat and place a river between themselves and their foes. The last man had got safely across, and they were about to march on, when, look ing across to the opposite bank, of which the foremost of the' French sharpshooters had already taken pos session, they saw a poor woman who had lost her way, and had been acci dentally left behind. There ehe stood, holding out her arms in en treaty, for her voice could not be heard. What was to be done? Who would venture across and invite al | most certain death? j Suddenly out came an officer from ! the ranks. He rode his horse into foaming river, and reaching the fur the...
GERMANY NOT PLAYING THE GAME. Where Her Hatred of Britain Is Leading Her To. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
GERMANY NOT PLAYING THE ! GAME. i Where Her Hatred of Britain Is Leading Her To. I By Sir A..Conan Doyle. j We have all, I suppose, read and . marvelled at the wonderful German . "Song of Hate." This has been .so I much admired over the water that j Prince Ruprecht of Bavaria—who had | just stated his bitter hatred of us in j a prose Army Order—distributed J copies of the verses to his Bavarians ; as a stimulant in their long unsuc- ! cessful tussle with our troops at , Ypres. In case the reader has for- . gotten its flavor, I append a typical verse:— We will never forgo our hate, We have all but a single hate, We love as one, we hate as one, We have one foe and one alone— Englaad. This sort of thing is, it must be admitted, very painful and odious. It fills us with a mixture of pity and disgust, and we feel as if instead of a man we were really fighting with a furious, screaming woman. Germany used to be a very great nation, men tally and morally as well as in mater ial ways, and m...

The Deaf, the Lame and the Dumb. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915
The Deaf, the Lame and the Dumb. Dean Inge, who is known as the "Gloomy Dean," stated in a sermon at Westminster Abbey the other day that "it may depend upon America, Britain and France, to maintain the ideals of liberty, justice, fair play, and gentleness until the tyranny of militarism is overthrown." The Dean, in spite of his reputation for gloominess, has a very caustic wit, and shortly after he was made Dean of St. Paul's he administered a sharp rebuke to a garrulous young man who was criticising his appoint ment. Dean Inge is somewhat deaf, and the young man observed, with a curl of his lip: "They have sent a lame bishop to Winchester and a deaf &lt;lean to St. Paul's." "Yes," replied the Dean icily, "and it only needs a dumb layman to make it complete!" Alice, an enthusiastic motorist, was speaking to her friend Maude, in re lation to the slowness of a certain young man at proposing. "Charley seems to start easy," she remarked, "and he speeds up well; but just at the ...

SPECIALIST EXPLIANS CAUSE OF STOMACH TROUBLE. VALUABLE ADVICE TO SUFFERERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915
SPECIALIST EXPLIANS CAUSE 0E STOMACH TROUBLL VALUABLE ADVICE TO SUFFERERS. " There are many different forms of stomach tronble," said a well-known stomack specialist recently, " but prac tically all are traceable to excessive acidity and food fermentation. That is why the results obtained from the use of drugs are usually so disappointing. Admitting fermentation and consequent acidity of the food contents to be the underlyiug cause of most forms of in digestion, it naturally follows that the use of a reliable antacid, such as the pure bisurated magnesia which is so fre quently prescribed by physicians, will produce better results than any known drug or combination of drugs. Ac cordingly I almost invariably advise those who complain of digestive trouble to get some bisurated magnesia (note the name carefully, as other forms are unsuitable for this purpose,) from their chemist, and take halF a teaspoonful of the powder, or two 5-grain compressed tablets, with a little water after meal...
CHINESE OATH. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915
CHINESE OATH. A Chinese oath was recently admin istered in British Columbia with all the ceremonial accompaniments that are observed in China when an oath is taken in court. Seven Chinamen were charged with rioting, and a wit ness was to testify. The oath was taken on the lawn at the rear of the courthouse in presence of the full court and many interested spectators. It was written in the Chinese language, to which the wit ness affixed his signature. The charge against the seven men was read to the witness by the interpreter, whereupon the witness took the fol lowing oath:—■ "Being a true witness, I shall enjoy happiness and my sons and grand sons will prosper forever. If I falsely accuse, I shall die on the street, heaven will punish me, earth will" destroy me. I shall suffer ad versity, and all my offspring will be exterminated. In burning this oath, I humbly submit to the will of hea ven, which has brilliant eyes to see." After the witness had signed his" name to the oath, a youn...

Skipton News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 March 1915
Two yonng motorists met with a double misfortune while journeying to Hamilton on Wednesday night. At about 11 o'clock, when a couple of miles past Streatham, the car went into a rut, and the bump bent the front axle so much that the wheels were forced agaiust the body of the car and would not re volve. Leaving all their chattels iu the car, they walked back to Streatham and staved the night at the hotel. Gu re turning in the morning, they found that practically everything movable in the car had disappeared. Rugs, a coat valued at £3, a hat, and even the tag of tools were gone. The theft was re ported to Constable Cawsey at Skipton. He went to Streatham to investigate. The bent axle was repaired by the local blacksmith, and the motorists resumed their journey. At a meeting of the Progress Asso ciation on Saturday night, it was de cided to ask the Hampdenshire Council to connect the creek with the local tank to provide a temporary- supply of water. Both the Hampden and the Riponshire ...
