Meunier, a French teacher in a Chicago school, resigned his post on the ground that it was too monoton ous, and became a travelling vendor of monkey nuts.

TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

TRUE ECONOMY. Economy and economise are two much-used words, but somotimes, we (car, they are falsely applied. Econo my as practised by some persons Is nothing but extravagance, although one might have much trouble in con vincing the porson of the truth of this statement. If one wastes time doing -work which might bo employed In doing something of more importance—oven though the work bo very necessary—It is not prac tising economy. He might better hlro some other person to have the work dono and employ his own time at the thing for which he Is fit ted. A housekeeper who Insists on wash ing, sewing, and doing other things for whioh she !b not physically able may think she Is very economical, but If Bhe getB sick, one visit from the doc tor would more than pay for several washings or hire several drosses made • by a dressmaker and save her the suffering beside. What Is the use of buying a cheap pair of shoes that cost possibly half as much as a good pair, and havo the soles drop off t...

A considerable portion of his chock and log fence was also flattened. Going through the Kite Mr James Kelly's paddock it looks as if a grubbing machine has been at work, many trees, which have resisted the storms in the past, being uprooted, and branches torn off in all directions.

is the complement ■ of heredity, for, as parents transmit their (acquired) characters to their offspring, so the offspring reflect, more so in their early stages, the original character of tlicii remoter ancestry. Breeding-liack is a well-known phrase, and such rever sion may occur even In the purest strains. Take sheep, for example, and it will be found that blac'c, and, hairy-coated lambs will occasionally appear in the best (locks. This showe two things—first, that the lamb has reverted (unless it is regarded as a sport or new departure) to an unim proved and remote ancestor; find, secondly,, that the original parti oloiircd and coarse-woolled ancestry have changed by long-continued care (uj breeding into quite a different type as pepfesentcd hy a modern Hoc!:.

She wore a black Bilk dress and looked the lady flown to the tips of her dainty toes or her soft white Angers lying now at ■peace on her-lap. But her eyes, al : ways restless, studied her daughter seated on the steps at her feet. . "It is too dark for you to - read, Laura," said she, presently. "Yes," and, Lauri closed the book she had been reading. The scent from a trlmly-cut lucerne hedge made the air heavy with sweet ness, and bright stars peeped out In a friendly way. All was at peace.

ELECTRIC GLOVES FOR POLICEMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

ELECTRIC GLOVES FOR POLICEMEN. Jeremiah Creedon, a resident of Philadelphia, and an engineer on the. Philadelphia Reading Railroad, ihas perfected and patented a device by which a policeman can control the most desperate and unruly prisoner. The inventor describes it as "an im proved electrical device for use of policemen and others1 in making ar rests, subduing unruly personB, and re sisting attacks." It consists essen t-ally of a pair of gloves provided electrodes which may be brought in contact with tjo perspn grasped by lhe- hand of the wearer. An electric circuit, "the terminals of which are formed by the electrodes, supplies an electric shock to the prisoner and effectually renders Mm unable to re sist arrest. The power for this instrument comes from a battery, worn either in a belt that is provided with it, or in the pocket of the policeman's coat. Connected with this device, also is a small lamp which can be held in" one hand and which receives Its light from the battery. Th...

A DESERTER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

A DESERTER. A private ot' an Infantry regiment deserted one night when he was on guard at tUe depot in England. For eight years afterwards he followed the sea as a fireman, and on his last voyage his ship put in at Bombay where he and his mates went ashore. They all imbibed, not wisely but too well, of fiery native- spirits, which, combining with the heat overcame them as they were making for the city and their ship after an excursion into the surrounding country, and they all fell into a drunken stupor by the! roadside. As they slumbered stertorously, a, European Infantry regiment marched by, the soldiers glancing curiously at the tipsy sleepers, and some of the Tommies shouted jokes at the oblivi ous firemen. One of the soldiers glancing at the seamen as he swung by, started, half halted, recovered himself, and march ed on, but looked back over his should der at one of the sleepers. ' "What's them atter?" asked a ser geant in the rank behind, seeing the look of half-doubting recog...

A MAN'S FAVORITE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

A MAN'8 FAVORITE. ...A man may not acknowledge it, but he Booretly admires the girl who is her mother's right hand in house hold matters, and who is not above taking an interest in the most trivial things In connection with home du ■ties. He likes to think that the "girl he .hopes to marry can) in an emer gency, turn her hand to anything, from cooking the family dinner to making her own clothes. He, wants her also to be unselfish enough to give up her own pleasures to benefit an other, and not consider herself Ill used at having to do so. This girl can. sometimes talk ot more import ant: things than dress, and can listen Intelligently when deeper subjects are Introduced. Matrimony has Its storms and trials, and to weather these storms something more than a merry heart and a nice complexion are need ful.

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. A great deal of talent is lost In the world for the want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves a num ber of obscure men who have only re malned In obscurity because of their' timidity, which has grevented them from making a first effort, and'who, .if they could have been induced to begin, would in all probability have gone great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that, to do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well aB we can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating rlslcs and adjusting nice chances; it did well before the Flood, when a man could consult his friends.upon an in tended publication for 150 years, and then live to see his success afterwards, but at present a man waits, and doubts and consults his brother and his par ticular friends, till one fine day he finds that he is sixty years of age; that he has-lost so much time In ...

Mr.- Price bad taken & single-room office in the city, and waB speculating In copper with some apparent suc cess. A man cannot speculate without some capital. It was the knowledge of the source of her father's borrow ed capital that helped to keep Queenie awake at night. Michael Thorne had lent him the money, but, as Mr. Price put it airily, on a purely business basis;' Michael Thorne, who, since the night of his unsuccessful proposal to Queenie, seemed to have discarded all human emotions and turned himself into a money-making machine; who; had justified his boast, "Nothing can stop' me!"

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

CHAPTER II. The Prices occupied the half of a house, classically termed "maison ette" In advertisements. They had a front door to themselves, and also a flight of stairs •with a Bharp turn be fore the premises commencing on the first floor were reached. It was late. When sales were on at Voile and Co., Queenle's hour of re turn was quite uncertain. She had a latchkey, and the gas was left burning in the hall passage for her. As Queenie stepped Into the pass age, Michael Thorne had reached the foot of the stairs, and she heard the retreating shuffle of her father's car pet slippers as he "reached the landing above. Mr. Price wore a loud-checked suit, white spats, and a rakish bowler hat at an angle by day; but at night— when he was at home—collapsed into a dressing-gown and carpet Bllppers. He rarely exhibited open signs of drunkenness, but he 'became very weary after an excess of whisky. That was why, instead o'f seeing Michael Thorne to the front door, he had "God blessed" him on t...

HEART PALPITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

HEART PALPITATION.. It is rarely, it ever, that palpitation is due to any disease or weakness o£ the heart. It is almost invariably the result of nervous or digestive trouble, j The beat of the heart arises ■within itself. There are nerves in the mus cles of the heart, and they regulate Its bating, although the speed or rate of the beating is not of their choosing. If they were not held in check they would set a rate about double that which is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from the brain with two pairs of regulating nerves. One pair, the cardio-motor nerves, act only lo spur up the heart to quicker action. They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-inbibitory nerves, are alwayB in action. It has been said that the heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the simile is true, for these nerves check the speed. Pear, worry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-inhlbitory nerves to re lax; ...

TO' SWEETEN THE BREATH. Children should be taught to use a tootli-bruaU and some good dentriflce after every imeal,' and especially bo fore going to bed at night. There are few things more offensive than an un pleasant breath, and few things easier to avoid, if proper care is given the teeth. One of the cheapest and most euective dentrillces is common table salt, and 'if used with a good brush re gularly very little else will be needed. There are many dentriflces in the mar ket at reasonable prices, and many of them are very good, but some of them, are harmful, and it is -well to make one's own dentrifice. If the gums are tender and inclined to bleed easily, select n brush adapted to their tender condition, aad do not give them excessive friction.
