WHITEHALL HOAX [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

WHITEHALL HOAX Between the hours of noon and threo on January 7, Whitehall and the neigh boring streets witnessed a rush for candles such as not been known within the memory of mortal man. : Banks, shops,, clubs, institutions great" and small, cried, in the words of the dying Goethe, for "Light, more light." And J all in vain. The cause of this unprecedented de-' mand (says "The Daily Mail") was a short, thick-set, clean-shaven man-a "respectable-looking man although wearing a brown overcoat," as one wit ness described him. Such was his ex terior, hut beneath the surface lurked the spirit of Theodore Hook, England's greatest practical joker. From noon till three this man made a careful pilgrimage down Whitehall and round about. Gravely and blandly he explained at all his houses of call that he represented the electric light ing company, and that the company re gretted to inform them that between the hours of three and six the electric light supply would unfortunately not be availabl...

MAGNET DRAWS NAIL FROM GIRL'S LUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

MAGNET DRAWS NAIL FROM GIRL'S LUNG. Odessa May, a four-year-old girl o£ Aldridge, Texas, is fast recovering from a remarkable surgical operation performed on her by Dr. R. C. Lynch, of New Orleans, La. A wire nail -was removed from the child's right lung after it had been embedded there for six -weeks. The child was rushed "by lier parents to Beaumont, eighty-five miles south of Aldridge. After two unsuccessful operations, surgeons de clared nothing could 6ave the child. Frantic in his efforts to save her, Odessa's father rushed her to a hospi tal at New Orleans, where two opera tions were performed and the nail re moved within a 'week. Dr. Lynch in serted a rubber tube into the child's throat. The end was -worked around while the physician watched through the X-ray, and when the tu'bing was fixed directly over the head of the wire nail a powerful -magnet iwas placed over the other end of the tubing and the nail was drawn out.

ODD THINGS ON TRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

ODD THINGS ON TRAINS. On a mountain railway near Salz burg a railway carriage is actually fit ted with a balloon. At the mountain top a tank below the car is filled -with water, sufficient to counteract the up ward pull of the gas bag, which the vehicle thus drags down with it upon the return journey. Trains are frequently being put to odd uses. The window of a railway saloon in Denmark forms a royal auto graph album. Royal visitors scratch their names on one of the panes, which now show, among other Royal autographs, those of King Edward and Queen Alexandra. The vestibule to the train belonging to the German Emperor holds several fine statues, the car (built for Presi dent Diaz of Mexico contains a com plete verandah, and that belonging to the Viceroy of India is roofed with water-tanks, which contribute towards coolness, and furnish water for do mestic purposes on the train. Russia's important trains carry a car, above which rises a little belfry containing a chime of bells.

PAINTING THE EIFFEL TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

PAINTING THE EIFFEL TOWER. The Eiffel Tower changes its dress every five or six years at a cost, of from £2800 to £3200. The date is at hand when fifty painters will find occupation for three or four months in covering the 180,000 square yards of its surface with a new coat of paint. The shade has yet to tie decided up on. The Eiffel Tower started twenty two years ago in orange, -wore red in 1893, golden yellow in 1899, and silver ?white on the summit and chrome yel low at the 'base in 1907. There are people -who would vote for an invisible shade of khaki for the coming renew al. The tower is now used as a wire less telegraph station, eb a post for an electric device to prevent hailstorms, and as a guid'ng mark for aviators.

A tender foot, looking on, saw one of the play ers deal himself four aces fromj the bottom of the pack. The tendeffoot whispered indignantly to another on looker: "Did you see that?" "What?" asked the other. "That swindler dealt himself four aces!" the tenderfoot hissed. "Waal," waa the astonished reply, "wasn't it his deal?"

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. The deposition of the mad kind, Otto o£ Bavaria, which has just been deci ded, recalls to the minds of all music lovers the genius of the greatest mo dern composer, Richard Wagner. For it was King Ludwrg, the brother of the poor madman, who befriended Wagner in the days of his greatest poverty, and whose patronage enabled him to produce his immortal works. King Ot to himself was a friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," "Tannhausc-r," and the other master pieces of his "Niebelungenlied," are now popular throughout the world. But when he produced them they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm of ridicule and contempt. He wrote some of them in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time- They reflect the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter, but they reveal also the nobility and idealism and tenderness which lay ...

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. One of the findings of science on the suhjecc of poultry-keeping is that a hen inquires one-fiftieth of her weight in food every day to maintain her 'bodily vigor. So, if a hen weighs Gib. ?loz. tin? daily allowance of food ought to be 3oz- But that allows noth ing for the manufacture ot the egg. A hen in full lay is asjmed to lay lOoz. in a wek. As 60 per cent, of an egg is water, that means that at least 4oz. more food must be allowed. A safe rule is to allow laying hens about 3oz. of food per day. In con fined runs, much more care has to toe taken to give a well-balanced ration than 'when the fowls run free. In the latter case the birds seldom toecome too fat, and they keep themselves in health toy eating a variety of green food, which acts as a corrective to all sorts of complaints to which other fowls are subject. Dennys Lascelles Limited, Geelong, notify that the vacancy on the Board of Directors caused by the death of Mr. David Strachan, has been filled...

CHEERFUL EVER! [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

CHEERFUL EVER! It's good we can say, -with a sigh and a smile: "Times will be better after awhile! " The light will 6tream through tho clouds o'erhead, And flowers -will bloom where the thorns were red!" What of the sigh, if we say .with a smile: "Times will toe better after awhile?" It's a long, long way to the light of day; But winter gives ever a promise of May, And ever we dream, in the darkest night: "The joy will come with the morning light!" Even in our sorrow we say -with a smile: "Times will ibe better after awhile!" "Times will be Ijetter!" In joy and woe Is it not sweeter to sing them so? Sweeter to dream, when the dark's o'er the blue. The eyes of the angels are looking at you? Away with 'the sigh, then, and sweet toe the smile, "Times will be 'better after awhile!"

REMARKABLE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

REMARKABLE MEETING., 1 A strange adventure is recorded by a correspondent o£ a London paper who, meeting a medical friend, looked in at a Fleet-street tavern to talk things over. Here he met another friend, a master mariner. After an informal introduction his two compan ions talked of things in which he took no interest, and he joined in another conversation. Half-an-hour had elaipsed when they informed him-profusely grateful for the introduction-that he had intro duced two brothers! They had been separated, not 'by quarrel, but by the estranging years. The mariner, as a weakly boy whose li'fe was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived mean counties away, by the sea. He had never re visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met.

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

-- PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murderers liave recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent, of capital sen tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain being over 50 per cent. iTlie newspapers common ly &peak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beheading, but it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.

FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

FORTUNES REFUSED. it is said that when it .became known that the letters of the great Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, were to be published, offers to pur chase them were received from all over the world, and that one great newspaper proprietor in the United States sent Mrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon which she 'might inscribe her own price. The offer was refused. Robert Browning constantly refused to 'write 'for the magazines and re views. He only departed from his self-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were offered to him even for a short .poem. He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying day. But this determination to refuse money when it is offered is evidently not the attribute of the well-to-do onfy> for a laborer in Pennsylvania has just refused two fortunes amounting to £20,000, which actually...

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

Household Hints. In washing paint, always remember to wet the wider-part first, so, when washing the upper, any water running down will leave no streaky marks. Save all the orange peel you liave. Dry it in a cool oven and store away in paper hags. Then some morning, when your fire will not burn, throw a bit of peel on and watch the effect. If you want to clean rusty fireirons you should rub them well with sweet oil, and leave them wet for a day or two. Then rub them with unslacked lime. This will remove the rust, and then you may polish your irons just as usual. "Wlien making Yorkshire spudding and pancakes, mix the flour with water instead of millc, break the egg into the basin, and 'beat all together thoroughly. It will toe found much lighter and cheaper, less milk being required. Before baking apples, pour boiling water over them. Put a little water in the dish they are b -ked in. Cook slowly. When ready, the skin can be taken off so thinly as to be transpar ent. . To keep onions...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XX. Suspense. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, A'uthoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XX. Suspense. A veiled woman, finely developed, in black, stood to the left of the vicar, who gazed at her in mild as tonishment. Netta stared at her, won dering rather than alarmed. Lady Montamor's great eyes flashed scorn. She had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out of the shadow cast by a stone pillar. And Robert drew himself up and looked at the spot in the veil where the eyes of the internteddler should be. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as well as of determination was expressed by every feature of his comely face. He recognised Gwen dolen-but also recognised that she had no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, 011 a par with the fact that she had hun: ed him down, probably by detectives in her pay. Indignant, his first instinct was to protect Netta. "After that, the de luge," he thought, as, turning...

CHAPTER XXII. Dark Hours. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 April 1914

CHAPTER XXII. Dark Hours. The stormy gusts of wind and oc casional showers had ceased. With I he night a great stillness came iipon the lonely heath. The inoon rose, and from among the neetlng clouds shone down upon the pools of watex -upon the dripping foliage of the few deciduous trees. What a lonely spot, thought Netta, was this chosen by her betrothed as her domicile be fore her marriage! Not a human soul seemed astir; and as ten o'clock struck, and the minutes were ticked away-first it was the quarter-past, then the half-hour then the minute hand first crept to the third quarter, then passed it-her nerves were strung to the highest pitch. It would not bo ten minutes' walk for him from the station-if he had not tak en a fly, as he naturally might At last! A sound of footsteps the garden gate opened and clanged to-she sprang up-then could hard ly believe she saw aright-it was only the doctor. She had sent the maids to bed; she opened the door herself. "He has not come doctor," sh...
