OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER A sensation has been caused in naval circles by the disappearance of Fleet Paymaster John Moffat Lowry from H.M.S. Ganges, which is stationed at Harwich (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). A large sum of Government money, believed to be between £10,000 and £15,000, has also disappeared, and the missing naval officer is "wanted" in connection with the matter by Scotland Yard. The mystery is being investigated by a senior detective- inspector, but as the keys of the safe have also disappeared, difficulty has been ex perienced in ascertaining the exact sum missing. Fleet Paymaster John Lowry is de scribed in the "Navy List" as an ad ditional officer of the Shotley Train ing Establishment. He is fifty-three years of age, 5ft. Sin. in height, and fresh complexioned, his eyes and moustache being grey. He is corpu lent, and has a swinging walk. He is believed to be wearing a blue suit and bowler hat, and he also has with him a rainproof overco...
VOLTURNO DISASTER [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
EMIGRANTS BEHAVE WBT.T, More stories of the final scenes in the burning emigrant ship Volturno were told at the resumed Board of Trade inquiry into the disaster yes terday (says the "Daily Mail" of De cember 2). Chief Engineer Dewar said that the deck was so hot ihat the water from the fire hoses boiled away to steam. Mr. Raeburn (counsel for the Board of Trade): How were the emigrants behaving?—Altogether very well. You saw none jump overboard through fright?—No. Did you hear of any having done so?—I only heard that two of the cabin passengers had done so. After the fires were drawn the witness asked the captain if the engineroom staff might have a chance with the passengers; they had worked very well, and there had been no shirk ing. When did the engineers leave the ship?—Between 11 o'clock and mid night, when we could not get any of the passengers to jump. Had efforts been made to induce the emigrants to go?—Yes; I said that it wanted somebody to give them a lead. One foreigner h...
FOOTBALL INCIDENT IDENTITY MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
FOOTBALL INCIDENT IDENTITY MYSTERY. The charge against a man giving the name of Frederick Pater of attempting to bribe a "West Bromwich Albion foot ball player was heard at Smethwick yesterday (reports the "Daily Mail" of December 2). Defendant, a man of medium height, apparently about 50,with grey hair and a sandy moustache, was well dressed. Mr Chapman, who appeared for him, said Pater was not his proper name. He did not desire his real name to be mentioned. Mr J. S. Sharpe; prosecuting on be half of the West Bromwich Albion Football Club directors, with the sup port of the Football Association, ox plained that Mr Jesse Pennington was captain of the Albion club, which cn Saturday played a match against Ever ton. On Friday afternoon the defen dant called on Mr Pennington at his shop, and made a proposal with regard to the match on the following day. " I must say," said Mr Sharpe, "Mr Pen nington acted very cleverly in the mat ter. He played with the defendant, and ultimately sugges...

A curiously distorted account of English municipal customs appeared in the responsible French journal "I/Opinion." Throughout England and Wales the newly elected mayors to the number of 327 were duly weighed in. They will again be weighed when they quit office, so that the electors may know if they have gained flesh during their term.

JSj HENRY FARMER, Author'i of'"The Money-Lender,'' '12a QnQtry Street," "Bondage," etc. - (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VII. (Continued). Hilary would understand, would hare been told why she had not stayed, why she was not present at the crucial mo ment of his ordeal to flash him a mes sage of love and faith with her eyes. He would understand—but why, oh, God, why had fate ordered things so cruelly? She moved again—hesitated. She was craving again for the solitude of her own room. Yet her sejise of the. fit nesG and the appropriateness of things was asserting itself. It had _ been brought home to her that specialised skill had saved her mother's life, and that Michael Thorne had provided it. A door opened, and as Beryl came out on the landing Queenie heard he> father's voice. H9 was saying some thing about Voile's, and a flood of sen sitive color swept ner face. She real ised that he was playing his old trick, making cadging appeals to Thorne for some benefit on her behalf. It ...

MILITARY ATTITUDE PROTECTION OF CITIZENS [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
MILITARY ATTITUDE PROTECTION OF CITIZENS The Kaiser last night summoned his new War Minister, General von Falken hayn, and the Chief of the Imperial Military Cabinet, General Baron von Lynckner, to Donaueschingen, where his Majesty is staying with his friend Prince Max Egon zu Furstenberg (says the Berlin correspondent of the "Daily Mail," December 2). To-day the inci dents at Zabern, in Lower Alsace, were the subject of an exhaustive discus sion between the Kaiser and his mill i tary chiefs. The incidents at Zabern originated in i a speech made by a twenty-year-old I subaltern, Lieutenant von Forstner, to his men. He advised them to stab any "wackes" (meaning rowdy) who at tacked them. The populace interpreted "wackes" as meaning Alsatian and made angry demonstrations against the military, who on Friday took control of the town for twenty-four hours. The incidents have now become an affair of national magnitude. The Reichstag to-day devoted most of its attention to Zabern instead o...
CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
CHAPTER Vni. The two rooms, bedroom and sit ting-room, were most delightfully situ ated. The airy, bow-windowed sitting room faced the sea-front. Southbourne —famous for its climate and pines, and sumnier and winter gardens, did not present the cheerless, empty aspect of some seaside resorts in the winter months, though perhaps the number of bath-chairs and invalids that consti tuted a feature of the place was a lit tle depressing. Every morning at noon, weather permitting—and at Southbourne weath er generally did permit—an easy-rolling bath-chair, well-sprung and pneumatic tyred, arrived at Bellevue House for Irs. Price, and for the rest Mrs. Price found it pleasant on the comfortable sofa in the bow-window, from which she commanded a panoramic view of sea and passers-by.. It was pleasant, also, contributing to peace of mind and so to convalescence, to have meals well served and regularly, without having to order or to consider expense. Queen ie's presence further contributed to Mr...

THE DANGER OF WORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
THE DANGER OF WORMS. .-Stomach and Intestinal Works are one of the most common complaiuts through out Australasia. Indigestion is a primary cause, or they may be produced by Con stipation, or through the eating of tainted food or food improperly cooked. There -is'also the possibility of their introduc tion into the system in the form of cysts or germs in fruit' and meat, so that all classes of the community, irrespective of age, are liable to this complaint. It is not.alone theirritation and annoyance caused by these parasitical animals that infest the stomach and bowels, but the more serious consequences which follow th&t must be kept in view. From the highly organised and sensitive parts which they occupy, worms give rise to great constitutional derangements, and produce a variety of symptoms, more particularly affecting the stomach and head. Many cases of Convulsions, Epi lepsy, Hysteria, St. Vitus' Dance, Melon cholia, Nervous Diseases, and even In .canity, .have resulte...

AN ADULTERATION ALLEGORY. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
AN ADULTERATION ALLEGORY. This fanciful story is suggested by the widespread practice of food adul teration. There were once four ro dents which made their way into a certain pantry and determined to have a feast. One flew to the sugar and ate heartily, but he soon died, tor the sugar was full of white lead. The second chose the flour as his diet, but he fared no better, for the flour "was loaded with plaster-of-Paris. - The third sampled the syrup, and his legs were presently raised in the air, for the syrup was colored with aniline dyes. The fourth, seeing all his friends dead, determined to end his life also, ana drank deeply of the rat poison whicn he found convenient to his desire. He is still alive and in good health. That too was adultera ted!
SOME SINGULAR SUCCESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
bOME SINGULAR SUCCESSES. Tne writer or the ''Peint of View" In "Scribntr," taking for his text the advice of Dean Hook, "Be thankful ior your successes, ignore your fail ures, and always be attempting some thing new," discourses on the • sub ject of what can be achieved by earn estness of purpose, and relates some i-mous instances of success: — "The mother of Henry Charles Fleeming Jenkin, a celebrated engin eer, was over forty years old when she lost a beautiful voice. She at once set herself to learn the piano, working eight hours a day, and at tained to such proficiency that her collaboration in chamber music was courted by professionals. "Young Lady Burton asked a-friend to teach her to fence, declaring that she wished to defend her husband when they were in the wilderness to gether. She set herself to learn" everything which might fit her for a roving life, so that in desert or woods, with or without servants, she might be qualified for any emergency. She went to a farm-house, ...
LOVE AMONG THE WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
LOVE AMONG THE WHEAT In the absence of an aeroplane to soar heavenwards, two lovers at Donald are reported to have climbed on to the highest stack of wheat at the railway station. Next day, according to the "Mail," certain articles were discovered, among them a lady's bangle, a small and daintily embroidered handkerchief, an ornamental bat pin, and a number of hair-pins. It is said that the likelihood of the articles being claimed is very remote. Love among the roses is a familiar expression, but love on a wheat stack, which must have been exceedingly difficult to climb, is something of a novelty. The " Mail " explains the depar ture by suggesting that a wheat stack is closely associated with "husbandry."
Traced by His Hat. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 31 January 1914
Traced by His Hat. A gentleman who was remarkable for his eccentricity in dress, on one occasion on his way home stepped into a wine-merchant's and ordered a doz en bottles of claret of a special vin tage to be sent to his house. The lad who brought it arrived at the house about an hour after the gentleman had got home. "Some wine," he said curtly. The maid, knowing there was plenty in the cellar and believing the boy had made a mistake, said she. was sure it was not for that house—did the lad remember the name of the gentleman who ordered it? The boy did not. "Then," said the servant, "you've come to the wrong place." At this moment the boy spied the customer's famous hat on the hall table. "I say," he asked, "does that hat live here?" "Yes," replied the amused maid. "Then," said the boy, "so does this wine!" Cynicus: It is impossible for a wo man to keep a secret. , Henpecke: I don't know about that; my wife and I were engaged for sev eral weeks before she said anything to me abou...
