THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS (By Howard Evans In "Tho Daily News.") I always had a kindly feeling tov the great Ducal Houso of Bedford, for I know no other houso that occupies *uch a distinguished place In tho annals of our country. It was a Russell who expendod his labor and his wealth In draining tho vast fen landy, known as tho Bedford level; It was a Russell who laid down his life on tho scaffold in Lincoln's Inn Fields in defence of English liberty; It was a Russell who was ono of the foremost in ridding the nation of the Stuart Kings; it was a Russell who commanded our fleet in tho decisive victory of La llogue.

Tho present Duko of Bedford has dono a public service by giving an ac count of the stewardship of himself und his predecessors by tho book which ho published a few years ago, called "The Story of a G...

But Mr. Gordon Price was thinking of the pension ho would be entitled to as Mlclmel's father-in-law, to say no thing of useful Information ro copper.

MR E. W. ALABONE DEATH OF SPECIALIST I am sorry to see the death an nounced of Mr E. "W. Alabone, the well known specialist in pulmonary con sumption, whose name has often figured in the page3 of "Truth" (says "Truth"). Mr Alabono's story ia an in i teresting and Instructive one.

He had, ■ however, one or two indiscreet friends 1 on the press who puffed his perform I ances in a way that attracted the I notice of the guardians of professional : "othics." and he was brought before j the General Medical Council and stru-.lt I off the register.

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 20 February 1914
CHAPTER XIV. The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered j outside, and a few had entered. A wedding, like a funeral, has a fascina tion for some, though they have no ' personal knowledge of those concern ed. But the wedding-party itself was composed only of the family and the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufficed for tliem. Mrs. \ Price, who had spent tea pounds to advantage on Jier clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks were (lushed hectically, and she shed tears at frequent intervals. The ibride and . her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thorne and his beBt man had only just taken their place at the al tar rails. i The nurse companion was seated beside Mrs. Price; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other side of her mother. Next 1 to her was Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too big for him. He looked as If he w...

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 20 February 1914
DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story cornea from Baltimore about a family servant, says the New York "Nation." She came from Germany twunly neven years ago. has lived with one Baltimore family ever since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady saving. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but it la evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated in the household in which she lived. It 13 not improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that sho has received pre sents that have helped her to economlso in the matter of dross. But It Is to be noted at once that there is nothing In tho least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing tho requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could put by ...
