GRAVE OF, CAPTAIN BACOHUS To the Editor o/ the, Express. Sir,-In the last issue of your ; paper, y ou drew attention to the "mournful state" of some of the.: graves 'in the graveyard at Holy Trinity Church, and particularly' ~:5: mentionied the grave of Captain Bacchus, "who," as you said, "may: be termed the god-father of the: town," and who thoughtfully a ind kindly gave nearly three acres of > land for Church purposes. Several months ago the Vestrjy decided to renovate the grave of the late Captain Bacchus, and aiu thorised one of the vestryinen wtoget':-. the work done.

NOTES FOR PIG BREEDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
IOTES FOR PIG BREEDERS. Fest the sows well; Give'lhe little pigs a chance: Young stock should always be thrifty. As a* rule, a short. chubby sow .-will make a poor breeding anjmal. Bran is .harsh,, and oft. causes .Jr r!ltation" of the bowels. I' I hardlys a safe food for pigs under three months old. " When the pigs are weaned the dry sows should be turned oit on pasture by: themselves and given a-little grain. Unless a sow is pure-bred, of an exceptional type, it will not .pay to keep her if she cannot produce large litters. Whether bred directly after the pigs are weaned or not, the sows should be fed a comparatively light diet until it is certain that they are .again with pig. When the litter is three weeks old both the sow and pigs should have the run of a paddock where they can get sunshine, exercise and, if possible, fresh grazing.. Filth breeds disease in the pig pen, the same as in the poultry yard. If dirt and trash are allowed to accumu late, disease is sure to be the re s...

THE BIGGEST ROSEBUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
THE BIGGEST ROSEBUSH. Probably the largest i rosebush :in Europe, is one in Frieburg, Germany, which towers to a height of no less than 115ft. It was raised from a wild rose stock, grafted with one of the varieties of tea-roses. There is. an other huge bush in the Marine Gar dens of Toulon, France, which occu pies a space 80ft. wide and 15ft. high. So enormous is the surface presented by this bush that it is said to have borne 50;000 flowers at one time. Though by no means so large, an equally interesting bush is one on the wall on the cathedral of Hildesheim, Germany, which is known to have been in existence in the eleventh century. Further than that it cannot be traced with. certainty, but there is every probability of its being older still.
PROFESSIONAL STORY-TELLERS [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
PROFESSIONAL STOiRY-TELLERS Those in Ireland whB labor to keep the old stories and the Gaelic art of story-telling alive in Ireland have to meet many- a- reprodach. Especially they are warned that they are behind the times, oilt of touch with the.spirit of a practical age, and the like. Well, America is supposed to be a practical country, not behind the procession. The Boston municipal authorities have bade provision for an official story teller, whose function it will be to at tend in. a room of theýpublic library. Sappropriated for the purpose, and there to tell stories to all:the children that care to look in. Instead of turn ing over books, which is a dull and impersonal way at best, the,young things will get the story from living lips. as the Greeks and Romans got theirs, and their philosophy, too. The story-telling, room has 'been fitted up in the right imagination-stirring fash ion, "hung," a correspondent writes to an English paper, "with mediaeval weapons and trophies an -c...

"I fancy so," Abell replied .thought fully. "You: are interested in the Ra venspur case?" - A lurid light leapt -into the Rus sian'.s eyes. He seemed to be strange ly moved. He paced up and down the room, diagging his maimed limb after him. "Never more interested in anything in my life," he said. "You know as much of. my past as any man, but there are matters, experiences un speakable. My face, my ruined. frame! Whence come these cruel misfortunes? That secret will go down with me to the grave. Of that I could speak to one man alone, and I know not whether that man is alive, or dead." Tchigorsky's words trailed off into a rambling, incoherent murmur. He .was far away with his own gloomy and painful thoughts. Then he came back to earth with a start. He stood with his back to the fireplace, ...

LEARNING TO SWIM. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
LaARNING T W,,,,. Mr. William Henry, the famouu swimmer, says:-I remember that when I first advocated the teaching of swimming movements e,.,nildren be-. fore they entered the water, I was written down as the hapless victim of a mental kink. Sufficient official support was forthcoming, to outlive the era of ridicule, and now the land drill ::is" taught throughout the world. The idea was not my own. It had 1ts origin in ages long past. ' There are a few rules that should be borne inr mind when commencing to learn to swim. Every movement should be slowly and carefully made. There is a tendency in beginners to make all the haste they can, to get flurried, to bend the back and take little, short, jerky movements, all of which defeats the object in view. The pupil becomes both exhausted and dis couraged. Adhere strictly to the land drill movements and correct incidental faults, and the breast stroke will be readily acquired. If greater progression through the water is desired, after the ...
RUNAWAY MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
RUNAWAY MATCHES. Runaway matches in these days are few and far between, for the good and sufficient reason that the modern par ent knows his business better than to interfere when his daughter has made up her mind to choose her own hus band, with the parental consent, if it be forthcoming, but quite cheerfully without it should it be withheld. Parental authority was much more puissant in ye olden time than to. day. SThe modern girl makes her lover's path far more easy for him than by any possibility the 'girl of the past could do. Men were, really and truly. masters in their own homes. Supposing a father of a century ago objected to his daughter being mar ried, he might refuse to allow young men to visit at his house, or when he preferred to be courteous he had only to assume that the calls were for him. self, and take the callers to his office, to smoke, and drink, and talk politics or neighborhood news, away from the ladles, who never committed the social crime of Invading the pre...
