Coleraine Albion PUBLISHED EVERY MONDAY and THURSDAY EVENING. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1914. NEWS AND NOTES. TAHARA BRIDGE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
©oImjum Jllriou PUBLISHED EVEHY MONDAY and THURSDAY EVENING. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1914. HEWS AND NOTES. TAIIARA BRIDGE SCHOOL. | Tlio Tahara Bridge State School, | which was erected privately on land belonging to Mr. E. Templeton, will in all probability be taken over by the Government. Mr. Templeton is generously donating the land, and all the Crown has to do is to pay the actual cost of the structure. So well has the school .been attended that it already requires enlargement. • •••SO FIRE AT SALTPANS'. On Tuesday a fire was noticed in one of the Bangwarriu paddocks, Saltpans, and everything being veiy dry it was not long before the con flagration obtained a wide-spread hold. Fortunately there was no hot wind blowing, otherwise it is hard to say what losses would have ensued. The outbreak attracted the attention of a team of men working on a thresher in the vicinity, and they and others worked at the flames till the fire was extinguished by which time about 15 acres had been burn...
PRISON PANTOMIME [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
PRISON PANTOMIME Strolling across tlie yard at Chelms ford Gaol (says the London "Evening News") a man decently dressed in nn overcoat and bowler hat requested the warder to open the gates for him, "as he had finished repairing the "organ." The warder remarked carefully, "What's your name?" turning to the visitors' book. "Griffin," said the man who had finished repairing the organ. But "Grif fin" was a name which did not seem to have been entered, and the warder thought he would keep the gates closed tor the moment. In the meantime to telephoned to the oflice, and the quick arrival of officials showed that his caution was justified. "Griffin" was at once recognised as ono of the prisoners. It was found that he * had slipped away unobserved during exercise, md passing through the kitchen garden, entered the probation warders' quar ters. There he had changed his clothes —and also secured a gold watch chala.
TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
TEN N1-8. A very pleasant afternoon was spent yesterday on the Presbyterian Tennis Court. The occasion was a match be tween the married and unmarried members of the club, arranged by Miss Ruby Cameron, and there was a con siderable attendance, equal to which was the very nice provision o£ refresh ments It would hardly do to serious ly take the le.sult >f the match as in dicating the respective advantages and disadvantages of single and married life, otherwise orange blossom would meet with a dead market for some time to come. Every game was con tested with spirit, but the unyoked were too good, and they were not only victors, but victors by a big niargi -. There was 110 handicapping, all play starting from scratch. The scores are as follow, the " singles " being men tioned first in each caso :— Mixed Douhles. Mr. Fletcher and Miss Jones beat Mr. Quartermanand Mrs.Dolman 6 — 1 Mr. Roper and Miss J.

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal ekies, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that ■happy combination between 'business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the pea...
"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
"GO I MUST" CALL Op THE ANTARCTIC. (By Sir Ernest Shackleton, in "The Daily Mail.") "Yonder the long horizon lies And there, by night and day, The old ships draw to port again, And tl\e young ships sail away; And come I may, but go I must, And if men ask me why, You can lay the blame on the sun and stars, And the white road and the sky." I have often been asked, what can one see in the cold, inhospitable regions of the Antarctic? And, confronted by a bald question such as that, it is hard to give an answer. The mere fact that one feels what Keats calls " The dearth of human words, the roughness of moral speech," shows that there must be an intangible something that draws one back to the wild wastes of the Antarctic. And it is there, if those of us that know it could only set it down in so many words. Even since- we were last there we have thought and dreamed of the wide stretches of snow and ice, the silence of those places where men never trod before, the wonder of the unknown as i...
"LADY" DEFINED [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
I' i "JuADY" DEFINED Lady Mabel Egerton yesterday (says "The Daily News," December 9) opened the Church Army labor depot In Walmer road, Notting Hill, and was afterwards thanked by several clergymen from the district, who spoke of the value of the depot. One clergyman said that many society ladles visited the depot each week. "They are ladies," he added, "because I they do this, and don't talk about it I afterwards for notoriety." In Grosvenor Square three whistles I sounded for a horso cab, and Arthur i Taverner, 55, drove up. He asked a | roadsweeper to assist him to lift some j luggage on to the cab, and remarked: 1 "It makes my heart jump for joy to j hear three whistles go." Then Tav erner fell from his box. An inquest was held on December S, ac cording to " The Daily News. " j Dr. Eweris, of St. George's Hos-1 pital, stated that there was a slight degeneration of the heart, and evi dently after the exertion of lifting the | luggage the man was overcome by an attack of giddines...

Good Advice. There are thousands of people who suffer from common ailments, such as Rheumatism, Indigestion, Gout, 'liousncis, Neuralgia, Jaundice, Lumbago, Sick Headache, Sciatica, Gravel, Backache, General Debility, Blood Disorders Stone, Anaemia, Bladder Troubles, who have no idea that their suffering is due to a diseased or inactive con dition of the kidneys and liver. The reason that treatment by Warner's Safe Cure has been so successful in cases of the disorders named is that Warner's Safe Cure exercises a spe cific healing and stimulating influ ence upon the kidneys and liver. Once the kidneys and liver are re stored to health and activity, the uric and 'biliary poisons, which cause the disorder, are removed from the system by the natural channels, and pain, due to the retention of the poi sons, ceases. A descriptive pamphlet will 'be sent post free by H. H. Warner and Co. Ltd., Melbourne, Vic. Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists and storekeepers everywhere, both iu the o...

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE A singular thing concerning mistle toe, called attention to by "The Gar den," is that, although it occurs on a wide range of trees and is so very common on the apple, yet it is never found on the pear. Some attempts to grow mistletoes on pear trees were made last year in Messrs James Veitch and Sons' nursery at Langley, and the results were so remarkable that the subject has since been brought before the scientific committee of the Royal Horticultural Society. Mistletoe seed was sown on a number of pear trees, and in many instances germination took place. In no case, however, did the mistletoe get beyond the stage of germination, and no leaves were de veloped. The effect upon (lie pear was very noticeable1, for the mistletoe, in its attempt to establish itself, killed all the tissue of the tree-stem just within the bark, completely encirc ling the stem. All growth was killed above the point where the mistletoe had germinated.
PUNISHED BY KAISER MILITARY DESPOTS LOSE POSTS [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
PUNISHED BY KAISER MILITARY DESPOTS LOSE POSTS The Kaiser to-day had a long con ference at Donaueschingen with the Minister of War and the chief of hia military cabinet, at which it Is stated (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Express," December 2\ that the Emperor did some extremely plain talking about the events at Zabern, in Alsace, where the popu lation is in revolt against the ex cesses of the Prussian garrison. The trouble began, as has been told in "The Express," with an offer by Lieutenant von Foerstner, of the 99th Regiment, of 10/ for every "Alsatian vagabond" bayoneted by a sentry. This was resented by the peo ple of Zabern, and a series of inci dents followed, culminating on Fri day last in an outbreak by the mili tary and the arrest of twenty-six citi zens. Complaints of brutal treatment by the soldiers were made by the pri soners, many of whom were citizens of standing. A number of German newspapers to-night state that the Kaiser has ordered drastic punishmen...
AFRICAN KING DEAD [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
AFRICAN KING BEAD t \ It may bo assumed with some confi dence that the persistent rumors of Menelek's death which have been cir culated periodically since his paralytic j seizure in 1908 are, on this occasion, well founded, says "The Times." The extent of the change in Abyssinian and ; North-East African politics involved by his death cannot yet be appraised. Menelek has been dead to the outer world and possibly oven to Abyssinia for some years. His stripling grand son and heir, Lidj Yasou, is little known, and has still to prove his ability to cope with the peculiar prob lems of Abyssinian statecraft. During Menelek's reign of 20 years the extremely primitive civilisation of Abyssinia has been overlaid with a Western veneer, though it has not lost its original characteristics. The coun try has telegraphs and telephones, and a railway, which stops short at a point near Harrar. It has a limited but In creasing trade in which India shares. The main industries of Abyssinia are, however...
The Heapt of a Girl CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 26 February 1914
By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender,'' "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (AH Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. iThorne drove his teeth into his ne ther lip. This woman who jhraiiit from his touch was his wife. Her hor ror at this moment was of the pro phetic, anticipatory kind. The 0bliga tions of marriage, what marriage meant, had thrust themselves upon her. She was tempted suddenly to iling open the door, throw herself out and let the traffic crush out her life. But the wild impulse \vas caught up an instant later ®y a realisation of its selfishness; the misery and grie-", and possibly death, such an act would in flict on others. She must go through with it somehow. "It's a bit early to begin showing off, isn't it?" The words had been stung out of Thome. "Don't touch me!' I've done all I have done for you and yours, and 1 suppose you take it for granted I shall go on in the same way in the future—but I mustn't touch you! What do you think I married you for, Qu...
