The first outbreak vas at the rear of the new post office and in close proximity to Salisbary house, and these places as well others were saved only by the strenuous exertions of the many willing fire fighters.

COSTLY ROYAL HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
COSTL. Y I?R.\l, II.\ITS The Bavarian Finance Minister. n supporting ;a motion for the Increase of the Bavarian King's Civil List to £O..270,000, observed, according to Dr MIullermelningen. who opposed the vote (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Mail"), that the expenses of the royal shoots were not excessive, and it was better that royalty should shoot and hunt than run after Venus. which was still a more expensive oc cuphtton.

FINGER=PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
FIN(iER PRINT SYSTEMI IDID:ETIFI t A.TION TL; EORD.tl . Englich det,'etives are astonished by the fact that. though the Paris police were in rcsse..ssion of an infallible clue, in thile form of a finger-print on the gl.ass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stole "La GLeo conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest- was made until last Frida?y (says 'The Daily Mail" of December lii). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police ta:lko finger-prints, they depend chielly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If they arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes. but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the chief form of identification: tilhe ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that -Drint has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out ...
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS (By Howard Evans In "The Dally News.") I always had a kindly feeling for the great Ducal House of Bedford, for I know no other house that occupies such a distinguished place In the annals of our country. It was a Russell who expended his labor and his wealth in draining the vast fen lands, known as the Bedford level: it was a Russell who laid down his life on the scaffold In Lincoln's Inn Fields in defence of English libeyty; it was a Russell who was one of the foremost in ridding the nation of the Stuart Kings: It was a Russell who commanded our fleet in the decisive victory of La Hogue. In moro recent times it was a Russell who carried the first Reform Bill, and throughout his long life was a staunch champion of civil and religious liberty. The present Duko of Bedford has done a public service by giving an ac coupt of the stewardship of himself and his predecessors by the book which he published a few years ago, called "The Story of a Gr...

Picking Pockets. The Bishop of Worcester told a capital story the other day in coo n?ttion with the efforts of tie Church in that part of the .euntr. to allevilate the lot of the h.oppers.

The hop-picker readily responded. tie said : "'In the summer months" " picks lpeans and -fruit; then whent autumn `comes round r picks hops, ; and in the winter, when the wen thler's dlrull, I picks pckets. Then, when I'm caught I picks oakuil. I'm kept uiice and w"arm dullring the cold months, and. then, when th, nice days come rolundl again. I start ea-picking, and so oin afresh."
"Nothing Venture, Nothing Have." [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
"Nothing Venture, Noth ing Have." t. This is a favourite motto of the 31.P. for lBattersean, and he Irhas. half a hundred stories to qiiite ir its favour. Once upon a time. h' was conducting a huges demonstra tion in Hyde PI'ark, and was him seif going round with the hat. A detachment of the Guards had Ibeer sent down to keepl) order,; and, prompted as much by a spirit,: o mischief as anything else. J.lohi. Burns marched up to the oflicer' in charge, and held out his hat. The oflicer put up an eyeglass; and stared from the hat to John. and back again. John stared no ler steadily at him. chinking the hatL suggestively. "Are you ii "ar nest ?" dlemanded the captain. " I amn." "Will this go to the womrnc anmd children ?" went on the oficcr. "It will," . was the brief reply. Tho glass dropped from the ofilcer. eye, and half a sovereigi dlroppel into the hat* at the same moment.
MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
MORALS OF THE NIURSERY OXFORD PRIOFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller In an article in the January "Ilbbert Jour THE FA~IILY The family Is the only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to bind the individuals caprice to travel in regul;ar orbits, and to build up an or derly society out of the gravitation of social units. It is a successful mech anism just because it Is so much more than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and of the factory, and of the Church, though all these institutions have sometimes grown into unnatural forms which in jure and repudiate their origin. "I remember that when I was an undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, the great Master of Balllol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on a great var iety of theories, without ple...
SEARCH FOR A "GRAVE" [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
SEARCH FOR A "GRAVE" The "confesrlon" of wife-murder made by George Hardy, of Eirming hanm, who is in custody at Dudley on . charge of stealln;g a bicycle, has proved to be baseless (says "The Daily Mai.," March 26). All d;ay yesterday Ipollce were scour ing the district fur the "grave" where tile mnt said he had buried his girl wife. Eventually he told the polCoe that the woman was alve, and this they found to be true. The wife returned to her mother's house at Birminsuhamn yesterday. NeIgh hers were in the suteet discussing the etipposted tragedy when the "murdered" woman ras ycoca walina down thei etreot.I She said she anew nothing about the! matter until that mornIni.

MR E. W. ALABONE DEATH OF SPECIALIST [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 18 February 1914
MR E. W. ALABONE DEIAT&I OF SPECIALIST I am sorry to see the death an nounced of Mr E. WV. Alabone, the well known specialist in pulmonary con sumption, whose name has often figured in the pages of 'Truth" (nays "Truth"). Mr Alabone's story is an in teresting and Instructive one. While still a young man he devised a treatment of consumption which had very remarkable success. He had, however, one or two indiscreet frlenda on the press who puffed his perform ances in a way that attracted the notice of the guardians of professional "ethics," and he was brought before the General Medical Council and stru.~k off the register. That generally means extinction and ruin, but Mr ALtbone fought on, and fought successfully. On the principle that you may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, he availed himself of his- freedom to start advertising in earnest; and he built up for hime f a largeo practice, which continued to flourish down to the time of his death. The trial of Mr Alabone b...

"?WVe must talk? it over-pull ours~!vesr together-if I lhave erred, it has been for Queenie-for my che-ild's sake!" But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension he would be entitled to as Michael's father-in-law, to say no thing of useful Information re copper. No marriage, no pension, nlo comfort able old age. Tad that telegram reached Queenie, there would have been no marriage on the morrow. Both men knew that. Even now "Come outside!" whispered Thorne. "Drlnk-no-you've had too much al ready!" They went out together, MIr. Price hatless. Thorne's car stood at the door, out they did not enter it, crossing over to the prom nade.
