A KINGSTON ROMANCE. The wedding which recently took place at the Kew-road Wesleyan Church, Richmond, between Miss E. J.

Mr. Tame left Kingston and settled in Bournemouth, where he ultimately became a member of the corporation. He married and brought up a fam ily, hut two years ago his wife died. Last year his daughter, who had been taking care of the home, married, and went to live at Surbiton.

WHAT POULTRY RAISERS SHOULD AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 16 January 1915
WHAT POULTRY RAISERS SHOULD AVOID. By II. V. Hawkins, in "Victorian Poultry Journal." ' Low-lying ground—it is difficult to drain. Secondhand material—risk of di sease. Fixing perches too high. Buying mixed lots of fowls — they may be past the laying stage. Leaving eggs in the nest—gather [ twice daily. | Keeping cockerels with laying pul j lets—infertile eggs keep better. Kitchen scraps from hospitals. Late hatching—means lack of sta mina. ' Too much grain—causes liver di i sease. Giving water to birds suffering from diarrhoea—skim milk is better. Overcrowding the pens. Feeding grain to sick fowls. Setting hens with cut wings—eggs get chilled. The leggy sitter (such as the Langshan) too clumsy, and often breaks eggs. The hen covered with vermin— | chicks will also have them. Using a broody hen twice in sue- J cession—her temperature is too low. Breeding from deformed stock— | like begets like.

IS THE KAISER DOOMED? Amazing Prediction of Germany's Fall. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
IS THE KAISER DOOMED? j I Amazing Prediction of Germany's Fall. William, the second of the name, will be the last King of Prussia; lie will have no other successors than a King of Poland, a King of Saxony, and a King of Hanover." More than 600 years ago this pro phecy was made hy an obscure monk of Mayence. Since then it has been handed down from father to son, through the centuries, until to-day it possesses a startling significance. By plunging all Europe into bloodshed/ Wilhelm II., the Kaiser, must stand or fall by the issue. The defeat of Germany will mean his virtual disap pearance as a world's dictator; it may even mean the disruption of the German Empire. Well may one ask whether the prediction of the clair voyant monk of bygone years will come true. Other predictions made by this ancient seer have proved amazingly correct. The prophet : mentions William I. by name, de scribes him as marching against Aus tria from victory to victory between "the earing and harvesting of bar ...
A Good Opportunity. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
A Good Opportunity. A delightful story is told of Dr. J. E. Watts-Ditchfield, the recently-ap pointed Bishop of Chelmsford. On one occasion he was very anx ious to get a certain man, a shoe maker, to come to church, and he was arguing with him in the shop one day. The shoemaker met his argu ments with the remark that he would not come to church to hear the Ten Commandments read out and have to make the responses, "for," said he, "the Ten Commandments were abol ished long ago." "To argue with euch a man was useless," says Dr. Watts-Ditchfield, "hut, acting on a sudden thought, I said, 'Oh, I am very glad to hear that the Eighth Commandment (thou shalt not steal) is abolished, for I am in need of a pair of shoes, and I think these are just my size!' And, snatch ing up a pair of shoes as I spoke, I tucked them under my arm and hur ried out." Needless to say, the shoemaker changed his mind about the Eighth Commandment and rushed out after the Bishop to rescue his property.
The Landlord Was Suspicious. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
The Landlord Was Suspicious. A tall, gaunt-looking man entered a hotel not long ago and applied for a room. The price he was willing to pay entitled him to lodgings on the top floor of the house. Among his belongings the proprietor noticed a coil of rope. Upon being asked what the rope was for, the man replied: "That's a fire-escape. 1 always carry at with me, and in case of fire I let myself down from the window." "Yes," replied the landlord, strok ing his chin reflectively, "seems like a pretty good 19ea; but guests with fire-escapes pay in advance at this I hotel."
Monotonous. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
Monotonous. A story is told of a well-known Bishop -who complained bitterly once that he was always being asked to go to lay foundation stones of new churches and on to the vicarage after wards to luncheon. "And the two things I am most tired of in life," he said wearily, "are the hymn, 'The Church's One Founda tion' and cold chicken for lunch!"
Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
The official result of the reoently held Melboure-Sydney Motor Cycle Relia bility trial has been announced, and shows that expert examination of ma chines at the conclusion of the 565 miles run resulted in 13 of the 19 contestants who reached Sydney with full control points being penalised for machine troubles. Considering the heavy nature of this interstate route, and the minute expert examination every machine .. had to undergo, the result is rery satisfac tory, for although only six riders lost no "machine" points, the deductions made —whilst very necessary in a trial of this description—were mostly for very trivial causes. The successful six were :—N. 0. Berry (6 h.p. A.J.S. and side car) ; F. S. Roberts (6 h.p. Harley-David son") ; J. Booth (7 h.p. Indian) ; W. W. Reynolds (3£ h.p. « B.S.A.") ; F. Delando (2| h.p. "Douglas"); and W. King (4 h.p. Indian). Of the thirteen riders who recached Sydaev with a clean score card, but had machine deductions madej three only lost one poin...

WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
| WIT AND HUMOUR. I | Professor: Too ;bad! One of my : pupils, to whom I have given two I courses of instruction in the cultiva | tion of the memory, has forgotten to ( pay me, and the worst of it is I can't remember his name. He was a member of a regimental band, and he did not forget to brag about it. "Why, man, we can play the most intricate airs at sight," he was say ing. "Indeed!" said the unbelieving lis tener. "I should like to hear you play the airs the drum-major puts on." Young Clubman: Now, I'll tell you chaps the difference between life and love. Everybody immediately expressed eagerness to know the difference. Young Clubman: Life is just one foolish thing after another. Love is just two foolisl? things after each other. Mrs. Murphy was reproving her lit tle boy, Jerry, the other day. "Why can't you be good?" she asked. "Shure, mother," Jerry replied, "I'll be good for a penny." "Oh, indeed," said the mother, "you want to be bribed. You should copy your father, and be go...

GENERAL GRANT'S KINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
GENERAL GRANT'S KINDNESS. General Grant was a kind and warm-hearted man in spite of a cer tain brusqueness of manner. There are many war-time incidents that prove it, and the "Youth's Compan ion" publishes a story that General Logan used often to tell. At the time General Logan was with General Grant at Holly Springs, Miss., and many people without money to buy provisions were forced to apply to the 'Northern Army in their distress. Food was always given them it they would take the oath of allegiance to_ the United States. One day a rickety carriage drew up before General Grant's headquarters, arid from it alighted a woman and her negro driver. The woman was admitted to the tent, and the ser vant stood just inside the tent flap. Only a few words /were necessary to explain matters. An officer who had charge of such cases told the woman that she should have food if she would sign the oath of allegiance. "I cannot do that," she said. "My hus band and three sons are lighting un der the ...

0 It was our representative's pleasure to visit, the re-modelled warehouse of Mr W. F. Coltman, timber merchant, Ofeswick Road, Ballarat.

CHAPTER XXI. Dick's Return. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
CHAPTER XXI. Dick's Return. At last the decision was made, and Sydney sat down to write her an swer to Robert, and the answer was "Yes." It had taken her three days to make up her mind. Twenty times during those three days she had deci ded it was impossible, and twenty times she had reconsidered the im possibility. What had given the fin ishing point to the decision was a visit to,Maggie. The children had a holiday, and were both at home, and the sight of the happy contentment of Maggie in her home, surrounded by husband and children, had brought home to Sydney for the hundredth time her own looely and isolated life. She was now verging on thirty; there were silver threads in the beau tiful hair, and she grew tired more easily than she did a few years ago. Sydney had always had a faculty for looking forward, and seeing clearly— too clearly for her own comfort—in to the future. She saw herself middle aged, old maidish, solitary, left be hind, first with no one and no one first with h...
AFTER SEVEN YEARS. The Story of a Man who Came Back from the Shadows into the Lovelight. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
AFTER SEVEN YEARS. The Story of a Man who Camfc Back from the Shadows Into the Lovelight. The large barn-like hall slowly emp tied. A man and a woman stood al one end watching the departure oi their guests. A motley crowd thej were—men, brutal-faced, furtive-eyed., lads, thin, pallid of cheek, with the alert, shrinking look of those to whom the touch of the policeman's hand on their shoulder is familiar and im minent; old women, filthy and drink sodden young girls, flaunting bedrag gled finery with blatant abandon. When the lact of the visitors had lurched from the hall the man turned to the woman. He was about forty years of age, a good-looking man de spite the weakness of his mouth and chin. He wore the short black jacket and round collar bf a clergyman. "Well, Miss Grahame," he said, "1 think we can congratulate ourselves on a distinct advance to-night. They are becoming more human, less like wild beasts." The woman dabbed at her moist eyes with her handkerchief, then she faced h...
