From Department of Agriculture, ask ing to be supplied with the area under wheat in the borough this season.—-The Mayor remarked that the area under wheat in the borough this year was de cidedly larger than last season, but at the most it was not very much.

Cr Williamson observed that cultivation was extending on all side3 of the bor ough, and, while Cr Elder led the way in onion-growing, the country should be brought under the notice of the fruit growers as being unsurpassed in any other part of the St...

Quite Right. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
Quite Right. The attitude, before tha Trar, ol the average Briton towards the "inraaloil bogey" is well illustrated by a dis cussion which took place in the smok ing-room of a Swiss hotel between a German and an Englishman as to the merits of their respective arm ies. The former "believed- in diaci plice and trained troops as thorough ly as he believed in the ultimate fate of Britain. The Englishman believed in train ing, too, but held that a lot depend ed upon the material trained. "Given," quoth he, "that brains ara lacking, no amount of physical train ing will make up for them. Take the British troops; they may not be bo oil trained as yours, but seei how ^y fight. It's because of their i ins." 'Nonsense," rejoined the aroused German. "Untrained troops can never stand against well-drilled oner. Take your country, for example. What would you do if Germany landed an army of two hundred and fifty thou sand perfectly-drilled and perfectly equipped men on your shores?" "Bury them," wa...

The Pianist Scored. M. Paderewski, the famous pianist, is interesting himself keenly in a scheme for succoring'the inhabitants of Poland who have suffered through the war. The great player is himself a Pole, and, therefore, takes a special interest in his latest task. Paderewski is such a wonderful pi anist that people are apt to forget that he is a composer of remarkable cleverness. Paderewski was once at the house of a noted Polish poet who gave it as his opinion that no living composer could compare with Mozart. Pader ewski said nothing, but the next day he again visited the poet, and said that he would like to play to him a little Mozartian piece which perhaps he did not know. The poet expressed his delight and was charmed with the music. "Ah!" he exclaimed, when the pian ist had finished. "Now you must surely acknowledge that that beauti ful piece could not have be&n com posed in our time?" "Perhaps," answered Paderewski drily; "only it happens that I com posed it mysel...

But the simple maiden was heiress to £20,000, was decidedly comely, and they were engaged. So he decided to plunge.

Three thousand Greek, Russian and Balkan monks occupy the ancient monasteries picturesquely situated on the slopes of Mount Athos, and from one year's end to another they -never set eyes on a woman—in fact, they are continually on the alert in case a member of the weaker sex should attempt to enter their do main.

Of course'his people murmured rrhen baulked of each destination, So William set his wits to work to give them consolation. His latest bill was placarded on hoarding, wall and panel; It ...
That Careless Sailor. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 29 May 1915
That Careless Sailor. For the first time in their lives Mr. and Mrs. Lopwig were on the sea. They had never even been for a row at South-end, and - now they were actually out on the broad At lantic, bound for America on a visit to their married daughter. An uneasy feeling that all was not well came over each of the old folks at the same moment. As is the way with people in that condition, they tried to hide their sensations from each other. Then they happened to yawn, a>nd a little late Mr. Lopwig developed nasty cough. That made Mrs. Lopwig feel worse. She 'began to grow peevish. "I wonder," said her husband, in a would-be casual voice, "what makes the ship roll so much, my dear?" Mrs. Lopwig's resentment flared up. "It's that fool of an officer up there on that little platform arrange ment! The - idiot keeps walking from one side of the ship to the other! I wonder he doesn't upset the boat, the brute!" i
