CHAPTER V. A Mysterlouc Disappearance. ifle sword it is said may have done more for the civilisation of the world than all other agensies put together. This is to a large extent true, for de spite the bloodshed and suffering fol lowing in the footsteps it brings out all that is manly or great in a nation or a race. At two o'clock on the shortening winter's day, Lily Clayton passed down the Castlehlll from her inter views with Jack Seaton and his su perior officer, Lieutenant Ellerton. She was nearing tlio foot of the steep street when a stylishly dressed lady accosted her, and explained that she was a stranger, and asked Lily if she would show her where the Guild Hall was situated. "I am a stranger myself," answer ed Lily, "and know very little about the place." "Such a pity," remarked the stranger. "May I ask how long you have been here."

CHAPTER IV. At the Barracks. After parting with his uncle. Jack Seaton was conducted by Sergeant Fussel to the orderly room, where several other new recruits were await ing the arrival o£ the orderly officer. Sitting next Jack was a lad in clean, working garb, Willie Beveridge, a native of Fife, who, with the charac teristic cuteness of the people of that county busied himself sizing up his companions. Laying a hand on Jack's shoulder, he whispered, "What are you hooking it from?" Jack, with his usual frankness, an swered:— "From the persecution of Colonel EUerton. I' thrashed his son for in sulting Lily—X mean, a friend of mine —and this is the result." At his words, Willie gave a whistlo and remarked: "A love affair?" "No, no!" replied Jack; "it was only a relation." "Maybe so," said the other. "I'll believe it was only a relation; but take a look at our new companions.

NEW WHEAT. Said to be Superior to Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 2 May 1913
NEW WHEAT. Said lo bo Superior to Federation:. The Hon. Georgo Graham, when open ing a flower show at Numurkah last week, drew attention to three new breeds of wheat amongst the Dookie College exhibits, and advised the farmers pre sent to make inquiries thereon. The wheats referred to are named Common wealth, Corowa and MoiriV. These were crosses of Federation, and, said Mr. Graham, each of them, and particularly, the Commonwealth, was infinitely super ior to Federation. All knew what the latter wheat had done for the State, and particularly for the northern dis tricts ,but it had been shown that when grown i side by side with Federation the latter was beaten " out of sight." The wheats had been sold out at Dookie, but next year, many farmers would doubtless have seed for sale, and ho advised farmers to give it a trial. During the show many farmers evinc ced considerable interest in the wheats mentioned, and several expressed their intention of trying one or other as early as possib...

TIRED MOTHERS. A little elbow leans upon your knee, Your'tired knee that has. so much to bear. •A child's dear eyes are looking lov ingly Prom underneath a thatoh of tan gled hair. Perhaps you do not need the velvet, touch Of.warm moist fingers-holding, yours so tight; You do not prize the blessing over much, You are almost too tired to pray to-night. But it is blessedness! A year ago I did not see it as I do to-day— 'We-are bo dull and thankless, and so slow To catch the eunsliice till it slips, away. And now it seems surpassing strange to me That while I wore the badge of motherhood, I did not kiss more oft and tenderly The little child that brought me only good. And if some night, when you sit down to rest, You miss this elbow from your tired1 knee, 'This restless curly head from off your breast, This lisping tongue that chatters constantly; I£ from your own the dimpled hand1 bad slipped, And ne'er would nestle in your palm; again; !

' "The Luck of / Jack Seaton." A" TALE OF MILITARY LIFE INDIA. By MAJOR R. STIRLING. . ' Author of "The Bonnie Belle of Watley." . (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III. A soldier full of strange oaths.0— Shakespeare. Lawyer Watson was not long in bringing pressure to bear on Mr. Bouncer; of the New Mill, as it was called. The lawyer knew the man he had to deal with, and felt his way very cautiously. He found that the tenant of the Mill was well versed in the pros and cons of the story, and also that Jack Seaton stood high in his esteem. When informed what the lord of the manor, the Colonel, desired, he posi tively declined to entertain such a proposal. Not for any Colonel in the army, no, not even for a Field-JIar shal would he yield. It was not until the lawyer informed him point blank that unless he agreed to dismiss Jack Seaton from his employment the Colonel would cut off the water sup ply and stop the Mill, that Bouncer realised the hopelessness of opposi tion, and yielded, and s...
A NEW TOTALISATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 2 May 1913
A NEW TOTALISATOR. . On the Ellerslie, Auckland, N.Z. race course, a new au'd somewhat marvellous tolalisator has boon erected. It is prac tically infallible. The tickets are only handled once, the mere withdrawal of theih from the machine being sufficient to cover the punching and registrationf. Before ' the ticket is handed to the investor the fact' that the bet lias been made is actually registered on the machine, and, by watching the figures as they revolve on the board, the public is able to gain an accurate idea of the way the belting is going. With 20 or 30 clerks operating the machine it is possible for them all to issue tickets on the same horse, and to record them at once and at the same time. At .the Eastor meeting at Ellerslie, on four out of the sixteen races run, the investments totalled over £6000, so that for each race over 12,000 separate bets had to be recorded, and the tote invest ments for the whole meeting amounted to £74,059—an average o£ £4628 per race. Yet in...

PASTURAGE FOR CALVES. DANISH FARMERS.

Mr. Smith is one of the American ovangellsts now attrac ing big audiences in Melbourne.
