CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

CHAPTER XII. Queenie was alone in her ■bedroom. The morrow was her wedding-day. She was to be married in toer travelling gown, and it lay outspread on her bed. A large box, ibranded Voile and Co contained her hat. Two large travel ling trunks occupied further space. The family were gathered together at Southbourne. Mr. Gordon Price and Philip, were staying at an hotel hard by, and Beryl, who seemed affected with a chronic redness of her eyelids, had obtained a room in the same house as her mother and Queenie. I Mluliacl Thornc was bearing a"\ ex | penses—it was his party—though the j fact was transparently glazed' over ' by the fiction that Mr. Price had been recently successful in business opera tions in the city. Early that afternoon Michael Thorne, accompanied by the friend who was to figure as best ma'n, had motored down from London. Queenie was alone in her bedroom, though the rest of the family were gathered together in Mrs. Price's pleasant sitting-room overlooking the sea. M...

WONDER OF LIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

"WONDER OF LIGHTS "If you had gone to sleep seventy years ago and awoke to-day what would be the most astonishing thing? "In his 'Mid-Victorian Memories' Mi R. E. Francillon answers the question It is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light. The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, the paraffin lamp, which smelt horribly, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago the light of the home was a candle or two encouraged by snuffers. And this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzled by the electric lights that turn midnight into noonday. Our houses and streets have abolished night," says "The Westminster," "and the coming of light would be the wonder of the man who had gone to sleep with a tal low candle and waked to—turn on the switch."

THE LEXTON SHIRE GRAZING BY-LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

. . THE LEXTON SHIRE GRAZ ' , ING BY-LAW. At the January meeting of the Lexton Shire Council it was de -- cided to obtain opinion from the legal advisers of the Municipal Association as to the legality of a by-law the council had passed charging a fee for stock grazing on shire roads. Counsels' opinion was before Monday's meeting of the council, and said :— " We are of opinion that by law No. 15, as made by the coun cil, is wholly inoperative as a by law, the council not having, in our opinion, the power to make it. But the substance of it, if carried into effect by the officers of the council, treating the by law simply as a resolution of the council, and thus a direction to them, would probably be effective, except as to the rate of travel ling siock. which conflicts with an" Act of Parliament. Clause 15, also respecting the exclusive right of the council to remove diseased stock, is, itr our opinion, ultra virus. We think that coun cils may legally charge and col lect a fee for t...

PAID IN FULL [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

PAID IN FULL Nineteen years ago, on December 1/, 1894, Mr J. W. Cook, an ambitious young man of twenty-six, was dismiss ed from an office in Wolverhampton, where he was engaged in the railway contracting business. His dismissal was followed by his being declared a bankrupt. On Wednesday last, December 17 (says "The Daily Mail")Mr Cook,middle aged and prosperous, entered the Of ficial Receiver's office at Wolverhamp ton and presented the Receiver with a cheque for £800, which will pay his creditors twenty shillings in the pound and all the cost in connection with the bankruptcy proceedings. The £800 represents not a sudden, windfall, but money saved bit by bit by a man with a fine respect for his good name and that of his wife and children. "The day I was dismissed is very vivid in my merory," said Mr Cook. "We were all looking forward to Christ mas Day. I was earning gnnd monov and -?v-o wcit; eApcrutins an addition to our family.

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

AMERICAN TRADE MORE UNEMPLOYMENT THAN SINCE 1907. President Wilson expects to sign tne Currency Bill in about a fortnight, so that the nation may have this long wished-for and much discussed mea sure for giving: greater freedom and flu idity to credit as its Christmas present for 1913 (says the New York correspon dent of "The Daily News," December 9). The delay in inducing the Senate^, to end its deliberations, due to the bank ers' fear, that the Bill would estab lish too much political control, has been one of the chief obstacles to the general resumption of business activity. Indeed, industrial conditions, as indicated by the railway returns, the investment market, and the number of laborers out of work, are extremely depressed. It is stated that there are more unem ployed in the Middle West a3 well as the Eastern States than in any year : since 1907. This applies particularly to railways, in consequence of the re trenchment policy by most of the com panies, while reports from Chi...

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE Drastic regulations to meet the eel- i luloid danger are made in the report | of the Departmental Committee (Eng land) which has .been considering the j matter. The proposals (says "The i Daily News") are calculated to excite I alarm among the public and to re volutionise the trade. The danger to the purchasirg pub lic, it is pointed out, is increased by the fact that in many cases the na ture of the substance is not apparent, and the committee urge that some such words as "Celluloid, inflam mable," should be marked on or at tached to such articles and toys. Boots and shoes, parts of which other than the eyelets and hooks are coated with sheet celluloid, or to which celluloid buckles are attached, should .not be sold without an indi cation to this effect. Special risks attach to wearing celluloid in the hair. It is recommended that local autho rities should issue warnings to shop keepers as to the dangerous proper ties of celluloid. T...

THE DANGER OF WORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 14 February 1914

THE DANGER OF WORMS. :0: Stomach and intestinal worms are one of the mo«t common complaints 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 in troduction 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 alono the irritation and annoyance caused by these parasitical animals that infest the stomach and bowels, but the more serious consequences which follow that 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, melan cholia, nervous diseasesj and even in sanity, have resulted from t...

Appearing for his public examination at Wandsworth Bankruptcy Court yes terday (reports "The Daily Mail" of De cember 21), Mr Herbert Bray, formerly manager of the Tooting-broadway branch of the London Joint Stock Bank, attributed his insolvency to a judgment for £1000 and costs obtained against him by Miss S.

The debtor said that Miss Bool, a cus tomer of the bank, told him that she wanted to invest £1000 to bring her about £70 a year. He recommended her to a solicitor, and the securities he ad vised her to invest in proved worthless. The solicitor afterwards left the coun try. After failing in an action against the bank Miss Bool issued a writ against che debtor, but, on the advice of his solicitors, he did not defend it, He was now living on the charity of his friends.
