Channel Tunnel Cost. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
Channel Tunnel Cost. 4 "Trains could bo running through Uto Channel Tunnel by. about- Christ inas, HJliO," sai&lt;l Mr. Arthur Veil in a lccturo at the, Koynl Socinty of Arts. Engineers now consider that the tunnels could bc&lt; completed at a cost estimated at £1(5,000,000 to bo raised over about six or eight years, one-half to be found by England, one-half by France. The £8,000,000 to be raised by- Kngland would probably bo m £1,000,000 of debentures and £1,000,000 of shares. If the same fares which arc now charged by the steamers were char ged by the tunnel company," ho added, "the shares should pay very large dividends."

The mere mention of worms makes one feol uncomfortable, and their pre sence in the system must assuredly c»uso such torture and agony that there i'b little wonder ab the irritable disposition which is so often developed, not only in children, bub frequently in ndulls. Worms require n specific medicine, and there is no better remedy tlian Comsto:k's "Dead Shot" Worm Pellets, as used by Mrs Will, mott, (Dooms, N S W, who states : "Hearing about the wonderful aucoess of your Worm Pellets, I decided to give them a trial.

WELCOME GUESTS. "The people whom I most read among gucsls," remarked a woman no ted for her generous hospitality, "arc those who have 110 capacity for small pleasures." Anyone who is accus tomeil lo entertrin much will easily recognise the cluss to which the speak er referred.

Cabby Found Out. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
Cabby Found Out. Cabby is very often a most sagacious person. One night the Rev. John Wil liams, a newly-returned missionary, took a cab in a dubious frame of mind. Ho had been invited to dine.with some friends at the house of an acquaintance whose name he had forgotten. He only knew that his host lived in Har court-street. "What am I to do?" he asked of his driver. "Never mind, Bir," was the reply. "I'll find him for you." "But you can't! you don't know his name." "Leave it to me, sir-leave It to me; I'll find him." They drove to Harcourt-street, and the man, beginning at the top, knocked at every door and made an inquiry. Half-way down the street he gaily re joined his employer and said, "It's, nil right, air; It's here." "How do you know?" "I asked, sir, 'Does the Reverend Mister Williams live here?' And the maid said, 'No; but he's dining here to-night.' " ? Tv>o wise people-those who do the ; best work In tho world and. leave It tho better for their presence-dn not trouble t...

ENTERPRISING AND—OTHERWISE [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
ENTERPRISING AND-OTHErv.VISE The following amusing anecdote clearly demonstrates the relative char acteristics of tlie Russian and Japan ese naval authorities. In 10u-t a ma chine for a certain class of marine work was brought out, and a sample machine was sold to the Russian ami Japanese Governments. As it did its work very satisraclorll) its well as economically, the manufac turer 'was chagrined to lind iis vuluo unappreciated, no further orders coin ing from either country. Upon investigation by a representa tive o£ the builders, in a storehouse in a Russian navy yard, was found the sample machine sold to tiie Russian Government, not only rusty and un serviceable, but showing by its dilapi dated condition that it had never been put to actual use. In Japan- the sample machine was not.found, but in a navy yard visited were at work a large number of simi lar machines, which had been con structed by ?lie ingenious Japanese ac cording to the sample model.
