Of tiie two runs the Sydney Record ou £gares looks to be a far easier pro j>oeition than the "Adelaide" re rfsord.

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
THE POTJbSa^. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY Olio of Ihe cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known us Epsom sails, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in- : valuable, and no poultry-keeper can ' atford to, bo without it, for its use as a first aid in niauy instances will ward oft' serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is often remedied by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful per bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This salinr > treatment is wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the ...

[ JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A 'J'KOUBIjIOD LAND. (Uy 15. Lirtii'C Mitford. F.R.G.S., in "The Daily Telegraph.") Willi characteristic .suddenness the islands of Japan have added one more to ilie already long list of tlicir vol eauie disasters. Tin: unexpected and destructive outburst of the Saki'ras liima volcano will serve to remind us that the land which the passing tourist is wont U> apostrophise as that of the lotus—"where it is always afternoon"— i.s one of the most troubled on the faco of this planet. Japan has 1G0 separate volcanoes. Three-fourths of these arc "dead." That i.s to say, they are so regarded official ly—in the maps of the Tokio geologists; though, now and again, one of tliem violently gives the lio to the recorders of their history.

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
WIT AND WISDOM. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A mail need not Cear competition when ho is in love with himself. People with small nnnds seldom have occasion to change tliein. A contented mind may be a feast, but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it dilficult to keep his head above water. I If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind lias uo time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise Btingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the youug folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for its generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described as that which tolls a woman she is right, whether ...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting uu engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Drelier, an employe of a large Lancashire linn, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, us her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to lintf on her arrival that Drelier, 110 doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, I10 con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, 011 lauding at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, "but Dreher managed to reach New York with his pu...

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
CHAPTER XXI. Perhaps it was well for Netta, that the old lady, bo severely tried of late, collapsed as she was intending to en ter the house, full of resolve to "see the disappointed young bride whose wedding had been so roughly inter rupted by her relative, Gwendolen Halldare, through." Netta, forgetting herself and the crisis in her life, summoned the ser vants and the confectioner's man to her rescue—herself assisting to carry Lady Montamor to her bedroom and ■ undressing her with tenderest solid • tude while Annie rushed for the doc tor. "Oh mem! That there gipsy—'ere i are 'er words hout! If it ain't haw ' full 'Is lordship called away sud • dint, 'er ladyship took ill no weddin' ■ breakfis, no nuthink!

The Great Montamoi Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knavo of Hearte,' CHAPTER XX. Suspense. A veiled woman, finely developed, in black, stood to the iel't ot' the vicar, who gazed at tier in mild as lonishmeut. Netta stared at her, won dering rather than alarmed. Lady Montamor's great eyes Hashed scorn She had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out ol' the shadow cast by a stone pillar. And Robert drew himself up and looked at the spot in the veil where the eyes of the intermeddler should bo. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as weli as of determination was expressed by every feature of Uis comely face. He recognised Gwen dolen—but also recognised that she had no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, on a par with the fact that she had liuu; ed him down, probably by detectives in her pay. indignant, his first instinct was to piotect Netta. "After that, the de luge," he thought, as, turning...
IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. •Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day war will become a thing of the past, and universal peace will ibe establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have been given to the cause; but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that It ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances • which tell, but factB. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with tho ideal? As far ibaclc in the history of the world as time will allow us to see tho whole living things have been lighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. Tho lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine clas...

CHAPTER XXII. Dark Hours. The stormy gusts or wind and oc casional showers had ceascd. Willi the night a great stillness came upon the lonely heath. The moon rose, and l'rom among the Reeling clouds shono down upon die pools of watei .—upon the dripping toliage of the lew deciduous trees.

BITER BIT PASSENGER AND PORTER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
BITER BIT PASSENGER AND PORTER. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which are sometimes made against railway servants, Mr W. F. Jackson, the general manager of the North British Railway Company (Eng land), has been telling a good story, the facts of which he said, were ascer tained in the investigation of a com plaint made by the principal actor. An old lady turned up at one of the Glasgow stations, and, going up to a porter, said, "X say, porter, can you tell - 1110 where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" he asked. "What have you got to do with that? Can you tell me where I will get my train?" "But I cannot tell with out " "Well, I'm not going to tell you where I'm going. I'll get some one else to help me." With that the old lady toddled far ther up the platform, and, meeting another porter, propounded her con undrum to him. "Where are you go ing, madam?" was his natural ques tion. "Oh," she retorted, "you are just as impertinent as your mate. I'm not going ...
