CHAPTER VIII. AFTER SIX MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 13 March 1914

A year lias passed since the mysterious white cruiser snatched Captain Taul Vol borth .from the cargo steamer in the Pacific ; six months have rolled by since that March day when Dick Val entine disappeared from London with out leaving a trace behind him. And Dick recalls these facts as he comes out of a shabby lodging-house on the south side of Washington-square in the citj of New York-, and bends his steps towards Broadway. The history of those six months the pass they had brought him to wns not written on Dick's outward appearance. He was neatly dressed, and well groomed, liis linen was spotless, his boots and hat irre proachable. But his thouuhta were black- and hitter, and in his eyes was the hard, cynical-look of one who has lost faith in human nature. ! It was a brief and commonplace story.

KINDNESS PAYS. THE ADVANTAGE OF T[?]ENTING COWS HUMANELY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 13 March 1914
KINDNESS PAYS. THE ADVANTAGE OK 'lYKVI'INCI j' COWS HUMAN'IiLY. A writer says of the cow th:t "she is a mothrr once a. year anil, like all mothers, she raji!Ires ospreial care at the time if parturition." It. seems us it the writer had dis missed this question of motherhood in the cow too tiiiic-ly, limiting it, as lio did,.to the time of parturition. The function of motherhood extends for months, as lon.if as &lt;he cow is giving milk, and it is a wise, fir seeing policy that discerns the score and bearing of this-'continuing func tion, and so ministers to t.lio cow as to conduce to the greatest ;-.rolH of the owner.

Why Fat Kings Were So Popular. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 20 March 1914
_Why Fat Kings Were So Popular. There was for generations a cus tom In India of weighing the kind, or ruler, in gold, micl giving that gold to the poor. Tho custom pre vails to-day in sonic parls of In dia, and King George V. of Eng land would havo been weighed dur ing his visit there, in keeping with tho custom, had he been nil ordi nary Eastern monarch. . Perhaps this weighing in gold was because most Indian rulers were extremely fat gentlemen. At any rate, it was the fat monarch? who were the most popular in tho olden days, for on the "weighing days" every additional pound of king meant so many more rupees for the poor. A Maharajah who was recently crowned scatod himself in 0110 of the gold pans ol the bala:»:e, while into the other was thrown^-gold' coin-until""'royally rose in the scales. The Afahrarajah, by an unwritten law, did not become legally chief until he had been weighed in this manner. In olden times the custom prevailed of throwing the money into the air and letting ...
