MR E. W. ALABONE DEATIH OF SPECIALIST [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

MR E. W. ALABONE DEATIH OF SPECIALIST I am sorry to see the death an nounced of Mr E. W. Alabone, the well known specialist in pulmonary con sumption, whose name has often figured in the pages of "Truth" (says "Truth"). Mr Alabono's story is an in teresting' and instructive one. While still a young man he devised a treatment of consumption which had very remarkable success. He had, however, one or two indiscreet friends on the press who puffed his perform ances in a way that attracted the notice of the guardians of professional "ethics," and he was brought before the General Medical Council and stru-k off tho register. That generally means extinction and ruin, but Mr Alabone fought on, and fought successfully. On the principle that you may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, he availed himself of his freedom to start advertising in earnest; and he built up for himse f a largo practice, which continued to flourish down to the time of his death. jliiu li iiM ui j.»ir jvittuone uy m...

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

CHAPTER XIV. The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered outside, and a few had entered. A wedding, like a funeral, has a fascina tion for some, though they have no personal knowledge of those concern ed. But the wedding-party itself was composed only of the family a.nd the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenle. One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent, ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks were flushed hectically, and she shed tears at frequent intervals. The (bride and her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thorne and his hest man had | only just taken their place at the al tar rails. The nurse companion was seated beside Mrs. Price: Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other side of her mother. Next to her was Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too hig for him. He looked as if he would have ...

ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PLEASE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PLEASE Correspondence between Colonel See ly, the Secretary for War, and Lord Esher, chairman of the County of Lon don Territorial Force Association, on the supply of horses for the Army was made public by tho War Office (says "The Daily -.Mail"). Lord Esher maintains that "On a general mobilisation every available horse that could be purchased volun tarily would "be required for tno Army. None would remain for the use of the Territorials." This Colonel Seely de scribes as a "complete delusion." Colonel Seely denies that the increase in motor vehicles has led to such a decrease in horses as to jeopardise the success of a mobilisation. Arrange ments have been made for an annual military census of the "horse popula tion." This enables the War Office each year to watch the variations. "Tii meet the total requirements of ail the military forces on a general mobilisation," Colonel Seely says, "somo 140,000 horses of all kinds are required: in Great Britain a...

Hurry up! People want to get home to their tea. If I'd as much time as you seem to have to daudle about, I wouldn't stand here; I'd go right away and get a cup of Robur tea—that's what I'd do. "Come, move along there please!" A fool once said "a police man's life is not a happy one" —that fellow had some sense, any way, for it isn't much of a life except perhaps when he's off duty at home playing with the youngsters. "Move on!" "Move on, pleasel" What are you looking for? A place to buy a pound of tea to take home? Try at tliff next grocer's shop, and ask for Robur No. i Grade; if you've not tried it I'm sure you'll like it, and say it's the best tea you ever tasted for the money.

Queenle had not left her place beBlde her mother. Before Quit, . ting the room, Thorne had crossed to her and again kissed her. It was the eVe of their Wedding an8 only the fara ily were present. On the surface he had acted as if he counted himself al ready a member of the family. On the surface—to an uninitiated spectator— it would have appeared homely, human and unaffected. In reality, that kiss was almost an act of revenge. She had risen to her feet. She had not winced. She had not averted her lips. "Good-night, Michael!" she had said. "Mother's a little tared and excited." In that way she excused herseh from accompanying him from the room. "Mother," she said, breaking the si lence that followed his exit, "it's time you went to 'bed. I'm going to tuck you up." She gave Mrs...

PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGuAC.Hi. | Dr. E. A. Abbott, best Known 101 schoolboys as the author of the famous i 'Latin grammar "Via Latina,' and as part-author of "English .Lessons for English People," has given his adher ence to the Oxford movement for the encouragement of pure English, and (says "The Daily Mail") has discussed the possibilities of the new society which has been formed with Dr. Bridges, the Poet Laureate, at its head. "If all the schoolmasters and mis tresses at elementary and public schools." said Dr. Abbott, who was a senior classic at Cambridge and a j scholar and headmaster of the City of London School, "applied themselves to correcting certain obvious defects. I am sure a great improvement would re- i suit.

"Come out—and have a drink!" re peated Mr. Gordon Price, still mum bling. He, too, like Micliael Thorne, had broken out into a perspiration. "We must talk it over—pull ourselves together—if I have erred, it has been for Queenie—for my che-ild's sake!" But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension he would be entitled to as Michael's father-in-law, to say no thing of useful information re copper. No marriage, no pension, no comfort able old age. Tad that telegram reached Queenie, there would have been no marriage on the morrow. Both men knew that. Even now "Come outside!" whispered Thorne. "Drink—no—you've had too much al ready!" They went out together, Mr. Price hatless. Thome's car stood at the door, out they did not enter it, crossing over to the prom nade. "You share the responsibility of this!" said Thorne.
