Defendant, one William Paton, was charged with offensive behaviour, and the evidence of Constable Morris was to the effect that on January 15, at 10.30 p.m., Paton, with fourteen or fifteen other youths, rushed along Bay street like so many savages. They had been kicking at doors of residences and then bolting. Defendant denied kicking at any door, and William Collins called as a witness, said it was a "cobber" who kicked the door.

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 February 1914

CHAPTER X. Some men wlio leap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro ccd at once to indulge ill vulgar dis play. Michael Thome, however, in his private life remained more or less true to the habits of tlie plodding young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of busi ness rather than pleasure; but lie lived quite simply in uu unostenta tious flat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the housekeeper could have told one that .Air. Thorne wanted an accurate ac count of where every penny of the housckeping money went. But It did not follow that the man did not revel in the power of his money; ill his power to control the copper market; to raise and depress and baffle his rivals in the same market, in this way lie got joy of his money. More than that, it had purchased a whole family, made absolute -slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only one thing beyond its purchase power love, reciprocity. His chance of ob taini...

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 February 1914

CHAPTER IX. The individual may have a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public wero concerned, tho Hasted bank rob bery had ben consigned to the lim bo of forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would be enough to drag it forth. Men would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" Then they would recall the case more or less vaguely. " The fellow's name "was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten years? Ho was engaged to be .married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But there "was no oblivion for the man in the prison cell-he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every hour, every day, bit memories more deeply into heart and soul-as acid bites into metal. There were no bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army officer and a gentleman. But prison regula tions were prison...

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 February 1914

By HENRY FARMER, Author of "Tho Money-Lender,'' " Quiltry Street," "Bondage," eto. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.-Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting- Mi 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- j ily-her mother. She might have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, ! Beryl, and her brother to fend for i 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 Thorno. But her mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorne had supplied the wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earn her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty flve shillings a week. The rent of the r...

HOW THE PUBLIC PAYS [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 7 February 1914

HOW THE PUBLIC PAYS At Delhi the Government can give notice to a landowner that they are about to use his land. They are then empowered to buy that land if they need it at its value at the time of the notice. In this way the people of Delhi escape the sort of thing that happens to London when its suburbs are developed. Take one of th3 latest successes in London travel. The Golder's Green Tubo has multiplied by eight the value of land round Gol der's Green (says "The Nation.") And if any public authority has any town planning or development scheme in view, it has to pay some such huge and unjust tax.

The writer says: "When the fireguards clause was in corporated in tho Children Act it was piously hoped that the number of chil dren annually burned to death would be reduccd by half. So far as our records go, tho number of infantile mortalities has increased, for the Act Is practic ally a dead letter; few penalties are im posed in the comparatively few in stances where proceedings have beeu talu-n.
