The GreatMontaiiior £ase. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Heart**," . CHAPTER. XVIII/ THE GAUNTLET IS CAST. Jt was a sultry summer day ; the sun poured down 011 the pavements with merciless power. The grass in the parks was visibly browning. The busy thoroughfares were crowded in the shade-empty but for a few pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzled. Gwendolen 1-Iulldare sat at her writing-table in her shady drawing room, shady because o£ wetted tat ties and outside blinds. .Lilies and white sweet peas, with ferns, were in the bowls and vases. A little fountain fed with, rose-water played in the shaded balcony-a new idea of hers. Its trickling suggested cool ness, just as in the dining-room bo low the big lumps of ice among ferus not only suggested cold, but tem pered the heat. That day everything connected with Lord Alontamor seemed to her clear as the purest crystal. She was miserable. An active light was at ?wprjc within her betweeA^the :part of IvSr n...

An Knglinh nobieman who dieii re cently was frequently spoken of among | his fellows as being "t<iD good tor this earth." lie was excessively abson! niinded when in s.H-iuty, and passed ranch of his time in solitude and medi tation. "Ho was as pure and un worldly," says his biographer, "as a b<i ing of another snhere." Looking closely at his life, however, it appears, in spite of (he largo oppor tunities which his wealth and rank gava him, to have been of little use or value to his fellowmen. Aspirations and dreams, howevor high and noble, which never pass into words wr actions, do not weigh heavily in the world.

Australian Wool Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

Australian Wool Trade. 1 Messrs Gokisbrough, Mi rt & ; Co.

Outstanding features ot the season have been the incep tion of free wool into America,, and the greatly increased volume: of exports of frozen_ mutton and lamb. The former is one of the most important events for many j years, and although it has been much discussed throughout the | trade it is doubtful whether its far-reaching effects are yet suffi ciently appreciated.

This suggestion (says "Tho Daily Kxpm-ss") is put forwarji 1'V -Mr J. \.

Mr Maskelyne demonstrates tlie vir tual impossibility of deceiving modern conjurers in such matters 'by a detailed examination ot .the much-criticised photograph of Major-General Sir Alfred Turner, in which a mystic form, said to bo that of his mother, appears.

BEWARE THE AVALANCHE SOME PERILS OF WINTER SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 March 1914

BEWARE THE AVALANCHE . SOME PERILS OF WINTER SPORTS. So many people BO to the Alps every winter, and (ho proportion of serious accidents is apparently so small, that the novice undertakes his winter holi day in far too light-hearted a fashion. Let him (says a special correspondent in "The Daily Express"), however, try to insure himself against winter sports accidents, and he will find that com pany after company will either refuse or quote prohibitive rates. This brings matter for serious reflec tion. The apparently small percentage of accidents is explained in this way. Ninety out of every hundred visitors to Switzerland in winter scarcely get out of sight of the hotel. They spend much time on practice slopes, much time in dancing and picnicking. So that all the accidents that happen must bo put down to the debit of the ten per cent, who do more serious work. The danger point is reached when the novice becomes a little more am bitions. lie looks upon the Alps as a playground, forge...
