His brother, Prince Henri of Broglic-Rovel, and his uncle, Count Robert of Clermont-Ton nerre, tho well-known sportsman, were, it appears, annoyed by the mar riage and the family broke oft all re lations with Prince Auguste and his bride.

AUSTRALIA'S EXAMPLE FIELD OF EDUCATION. In "The Manchester Guardian" of Do -omber 17 Mr Charles Peach, secretary of the Northern Counties Education League, wrote:—Tho letter of Bishop Frodshajn In your issuo of to-day's date !h a direct challengo to tho North ern Counties Education League. Bishop Frodsham appeals, not for tho first time, for the ending of the religious difficulty. This he does in tho sacred names of liberty and religion. Need I say that I am heartily with him in his desire, though 1 pauso to oxamlno his methods? Bishop Frodsham irankly confesses thnt the difficulties we deplore havo been largely due to tho narrowness of Anglican school managers, but ho sug gests that the situation has been ag gravated by a similar spirit of narrow ness in tho Council schools. In that a Just comparison? In tho Anglican schools only Anglicans are appointed as teachers, although their salaries are paid by tho public.

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 February 1914

, HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. (By Jj, G. Chiozza Monoy, in "Tho Dally Newa.M) The death-rate of the United King dom Is 14,000 a year cf the population. Thin rate expresses tho avoraging of some wide variations—variations which express tho difference between good JioubIng and had housing. There are places whero tho death-rato Is about 20 per 1000;. there arc other places where it falls bolow JO per 1000. It Is easier to state theso things than to bring homo to tho mind the full re alisation of tholr meaning. Let me en deavor to convoy their terrlblo Import. To show what a dcath-rato may ho under decent conditions, that of East bourne Is about 10 to 1000. That also lo about the death-rate of Hampstead. It Is altfo the death-rato of New Zealand. ^What would It mean to tho United '•kingdom If tho death-rate of tho whole country could be reduced to this figure, shown to be a possible figtiro by actual experience? Tt would mean a saving .in tho United Kingdom of 184.000 lives. That I...

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 February 1914

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT . In a recent lssuo of the "Lancet it Is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as have from time to time been made and published have referred to an examination of the entire coffee berry, and not to the infusion as it reaches tho con sumer. Tho results are now set forth of an investigation into the composition of the infusion to be drunk, the chemistry of tho "grounds"' having been left out of consideration. In drawing a comparison between coffee and tea the results show that while the alkaloid caffeine in coffee is identical with that in tea, yet its as sociations in coffee are different. In Lea infusions tho alkaloid occurs chiefly as a tannate, which is a coin pound insoluble in tho acid juices of the stomach. In coffee it occurs in an easily soluble compound. Here would ap pear to be the explanation of the prompt action of coffee as a restora- j tive and stimulant, particularly when I employed as an antidote to narcotic I poisons. I...

The arrangement (says tho Vienna correspondent of "Tho Dally Express'" Docembor 6), was made with Dr. von Lukacs, Count Tisza's predecessor in tho Premiership, and tho scandal which it gavo rise to caused von Lukacs' fall. Count Tisza, whon he took office, refused to recogniBo tho bargain, and tho bank threatened to bring- an action against tho party or ganisation if tho money were not re funded. , This was impossible, however, as the monoy was spent at tho lust election, and tho party chest Is now empty.

TRAINED ANIMALS MR. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 February 1914

TRAINED ANIMALS MR. THOMAS HARDY'S VIEWS Mr. Thomas Hardy, In the course of a letter to "The Times," says that possibly somo animals may be, and are, trained for performances without discomfort to themselves, but there Is ample evidence to show that many trainers prefer short cuts to attain their ends, and that theso short, cuts are by the way of cruelty. I have been present, continues Mr. Hardy, at dog- performances at country fairs, where the wretched animals so trembled with terror when they failed to execute the feat required of them that they could scarcely stand, and remained with eyes of misery fixed upon their master, paralysed at the knowledge of what was In store for them behind the scenes, whence their shrieks could afterwards be heard through the canvas. And there are cruelties of a more insidious kind produced by drugs. As to the caging of birds, the assertion that a caged skylark experiences none of the misery of a caged man makes demands upon our credulity. Any how, a...

CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 February 1914

CHAPTER X. Some men who leap suddenly from comparative poverty to wealth pro* ced at once to indulge in vulgar die* play. Michael Thome, however, In his private life remained more or less 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; but he lived quite simply in an unostenta tious flat with an elderly toouBo keeper and one servant; and the housekeeper could have told one that Mr. Thorne wanted an accurate ac count of where every "penny of the housekeping money went. But it did not follow that the man did not revel in the "power of Ms money; in his power to control the copper market; to raise- and depress and 'baffle his rivals in the same market. In this way ho got joy of his money. More than that. It had purchased a whole family, made absolute slaves and sponges of them; it had purchased him revenge and a woman. Only one thing" beyond 'its purchase power— love, reciprocity. His chance of ob taini...

Where the general public •were concerned, the Haated bank rob bery had ben consigned to the lira bo of forgotten things, though an un expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line,' mould be enough to drag It forth.

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 man 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.
