It is popu lated by the least pleasing of black ra.ces, and has also a population of witches, wizards, gnomes, goblins, and 3. large and varied assortment of de vils. Even if you refuse to believe in fairies, good or bad, you will believe, when you have travelled in Menelek's land, in the devils of Abyssinia. You can see and smell and hear some of them; and I have even shot one. He was a dust devil, and I shot him four days ago.

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 5 February 1914
I HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES FAID. (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in "Ths Daily News.") The death-rate of the United K'ng dom is 14,000 a year of the population. This rate expresses the averaging or --ome wide variations—variations whicn express the difference between good housing and bad housing. There are places where the death-rate is about 20 per 1000; there are other places where it falls below 10 per 1000. It is easier to -state these things than to bring home to the mind the full re alisation of their meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrible Import. To show what a death-rate may be under decent conditions, that of East bourne Is about 10 to 1000. That also Is about the death-rate of Hampstead. It is also the death-rate of New Zealand. What would it mean to the United kingdom if the deatli-rate of the whole country could be reducod to this figure, shown to be a possible figure by actual experience? It would mean a saving in the United Kingdom of 184,000 lives. That is to s...

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 5 February 1914
CHAPTER IX. The individual may havo a long me mory, but the general public has a short one. Where the general public ■were concerned, the Hasted bank rob bery had ben consigned to the lim bo of forgotten things, though ail un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, .would be enough to drag it forth. Men would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" Then they would recall the case more or less vaguely. "The fellow's name was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was the sen tence? Five or ten years? He was engaged to be married, wasn't he? Didn't she faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't she?" But there was no oblivion for the mau in the prison cell—he could not consign memories to a limbo. Every. hour, every day, bit memories more deeply into heart and soul—as acid bites into .metal. There were no bru tal warders at Stilchester gaol. The governor was a former army officer and a gentleman. But prison regula tions were priso...
The Heart of a Girl CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 5 February 1914
By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender,'' "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Thome's offer of marriage was indeed unconventional. She had im molated herself on the family altar— for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam ily—her mother. She might have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty of his theft Quite frankly, she had grown, to tjate her father; she 'despised her brother. Beryl she loved; but Beryl with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorne. But her mother's life depended on freedon^ from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorne had supplied the -wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earn her living she "would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a week. The rent of the ro...
AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE RECONSTRUCTION OF NAVAL BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 5 February 1914
AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE RECONSTRUCTION OF NAVAL BOARD. The completion of tlie Australlai Fleet Unit and the enlarged responsi bilities -which have been assumed bj the Commonwealth Government with regard to naval defence (writes an Australian correspondent to " The Westminster Gazette" on December 17). The personnel that was needed to deal with naval matters during the building up of the fleet and in the initial stages of the organisation o£ Admiral Henderson's scheme was of quite a different character from that which is necessary now that Admiral Patey has arrived in Australian waters and the serious business of training the officers and men of the Royal Aus tralian Navy has been commenced in real earnest. Among the changes which are in contemplation is the reconstruction of the Naval Board. The Government hopes to obtain the services as first naval member of a British Admiral of high standing, who will be willing, for a limited period, at all events, to su pervise the important work of ...
CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 5 February 1914
CHAPTER X. Some meu who leap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro ced at once to indulge in vulgar dis play. .Michael Thorne, however, in. his private life remained more or loss true to the habits of the plodding young clerk. He dressed better; he kept a motor-car as a thing of busi ness rather than pleasure; hut he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious flat with an elderly house keeper and one servant; and the housekeeper could have told one that Mr. Thome wanted an accurate ac count of where every penny of the houselceping money went. But it did not follow that the man did not revel in the power of his money; in his power to control the copper market; to raise and depress and 'baffle his rivals in the same market. In thiB way he got joy o£ his money. More than that. It had purchased a whole family, made absolute slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased htm revenge and a woman. Only one thing beyond its purchase power— love, reciprocity. His chance oX ob taining t...
