CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 April 1914
CYCLING. The gigantic dimensions of the motoring industry in Great Britain can be gathered from ree9nt figures compiled in England by Mr M, Sturmey, who is an authority on such subjects. During the year l'.)13 £11,057,250 worth of British built cars were bought in Great Bri tain, £1.5G8.87'.> of foreign-built cats, £1,'.178,1181 worth of foreign built chassis, and £600,802 was ex pended for bodies and equipment for foreign chassis—making a total of £15,105,012. These figures do not take into account either tyres, accessories or motor-cycle's, the im port of the former two items total ling .13.013,703, The increase of registration of motor cycles in 11>13 amounted to 38,770. It is therefore evident that the moiuy spent in Great Britain during last year on the purchase of cars, motor cycles, tyres and accessoiies must have ex ceeded £25,000,000. That the efficiency of the present day motor cycle is still on the up grade was recently demonstrated at the opening of the Brooklands ...

Jjiwty Aiontamor was ciniiv rejuven ating as she trok 1111 active part in the young lives of her son and the innocent, charming girl who was so soon to be his wife. There was a sympathetic ulTcction between the excitable, energetic old ludv, who never admitted that there could be obstacles to anything she willed or wished, and the tranquil, saddened Netta. "Netta , is so naturally high-class, so tactful ; she always instinctively knows what she ougiit to do, and does it," the old lady told her son. ' V on should have' seen her at Ame lia's. Not n bit put out by the quantities of lovely things—not •staring, goggle-eyed, as I have seen duchess's daughters stare when they were taken to be fitted for their com ing-out. things, but just having the right taste—liking what I liked bo fore she could possibly have guessed it—oh, and all that sort of thing. My dear, she is a gem ! You are a lucky man." "I suppose I am," he grimly re plied. "X don't think...

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of .Hoart6," CMAI'TEU XVIII. THE CiAUNTJjET IS OAST. It was a sultry summer day ; the sun poured down on tne pavements with merciless power. The grass in tlie pants was visibly browning. The busy thoroughfares were crowded in the shade—empty but for a fovv pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzled. Gwendolen llalldare sat at' her writing-table "in her shady drawing room, shady because of wetted tat-1 ties and outside blinds, l.ilies and white sweet peas, with ferns, wen: in the bowls and vases.

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 April 1914
STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Roar-Admiral A. T. Mahan, in "Tho Daily Mail.") Tho naval position of Great Britain is a composite ot two distinct factors. These are the general international situation, in so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter ests or her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent the defensive and offensive elements oT a military situation. At the present moment tho mere security of tlio British Islands is con ceived to bo so far imperilled that it has prompted a radical change in the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around tho islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related to it. has been the withdrawal—the drawing back—of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its definite headquarters. Students of military history w...

■Silt AKTIll 1! SV'I.IjIVAN'S OKUJSAIi Tlic death of Mr Francois Cellier, the Savoy conductor (says "The Westmin ster Gazette") retails a dramatic epi sode associated with tlie production of "iolanthe" in 1SS2. That opera was the llrst of the Gilbert and Suliivan series produced at the Savoy, ana Sir Arthur Sullivan had arranged with Mr Cellier personally to conduct the first perform ance. On the morning of the tiny fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich man, so successful had been the four operas which had preceded "Jolanthe"; but just as he was about to leave hyme for the Savoy news reached him of the bankruptcy of tho firm entrusted with his investments, and with that bankruptcy the whole or his savings disappeared. Hut in spite Of this heavy blow he went to the theatre and conducted "lolanthe" be fore a crowded audience, which little knew that the famous composer was then as poor as the lowliest scena ehlfter behind the scenes.

Can We Acquire Beauty? [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
Can We Hcpiie Rebuih? This is a question that will touch the heart of every lady reader, and, ifaough it may not be answered to ©rery laiJy's entire satisfaction, there is certainly a good ileal of interest ia knowing how oilier woman have done it or imagine they have. So ±hat " Everylady's Journal" for April hits upon a live topic when it gives the views—and the portraits— of a number of leading women'on *' How to Be Beautiful." It seems ihat beauty of figure is the great .■consideration rather than the beauty' that is skin-deep, and we learn from tho ladies who have given their, -views to " Everylady's Journal" that beauty of both body and face -will follow perfect health. This, therefore, is the object te aim ar, ■and the means suggested are many and various. MirS De Vere, the sprightly comedienne of " The Dan dies," for example, advocates danc and says that even the oft-con* 'derailed Tango has its advantages as a health-exerciser. Miss Murray, a .Scottish champion, votes for sw...
