I ECZEMA. Mrs. ELIZABETH ROBINS, of 256 Gougcr Street. Adelaide. S.A.* writes the story of her terrible *ulTer ings, 24/12/12. Eight years she was a martyr to the agony of Eczcma, until she received relief from the almost ceaseless pain of this awful affliction through the use of The voluntary offering of tliitf remark able letter by Mm. Kohins is evidence itself ot her gratitude, and it is a!>u proof that in case* where the blood ts impure and stia disease is i:i tcnaifnd by this condition, the blood pnrifyinK powe: s of Clements Tonic nre rapidly asserted. CLEKEHTS TONIC LTD., "Year medicine has been a great blessing to me. I suffered with Eczema for eight years ; my legs were swollen to an awful siit and covered with watery ^blisters that would keep on breaking.

IV. The woman shrank 'back with a cry of fear, and Dick Curtis flung a pos sessive arm about her shoulders—an action which maddened the man con fronting them. "Take your vile hand from my wife, you ibrute!" he said violently. "Since you've turned up at this in opportune moment," 6aid Curtis slow ly, "you may as well learn the truth once and for ever. II you hadn't been a blind fool—surely the simplest God ever allowed to live in this topsy turvy world—you would have known better than to go away and leave mo in charge, so to speak, of your wife. I tried to blind myself to thingB, 'but I was not quite strong enough; that's all. I'm only a very human, ordinary flesh-and-blood chap, you see—not a 6aint. not even a level-headed old slosv-coach like yourself, without any thing like real deep feeling.

III. Someone in the flat below was play ing a violin, exquisitely, teuderly, and the long-drawn notes of "Salut d'Ani our" came floating up. "Does anything, even 'playing the game,' matter in a case like yours and mine?" asked Curtis. "I—oh, I don't know," she mur mured weakly. "I—I've always 'play ed the game,' Dick; and now—it's so madly diflicult. He has been good to me." "Good!" echoed her companion, his voice tense with passion. "D'you think that's love? If he loved you, or you him, I might have gone away and said nothing. But in your heart of hearts you must know it's me you love. And to a woman liko you, isn't love—love, I say—the only thing that matters?" She shivered. "John," he went on—and liiB tone was contemptuous almost—"is a good sort. And"—for a second the beBt in him rose—"it's because he's 'been my pal that I've held back as long as this, but he's a good deal to iblame himself, for all the world would say, my dear, that he has simply thrust matters in to my hands; a...

WINDMILL WIRELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 May 1914
WINDMILL WIRELESS. Holland is so flat that the wind mills with which it is studded are landmarks that can be seen for miles. So for centurics the windmill arms have been used as convenient signals. Births, deaths and marriages are often announced by this method in stead of by newspaper. The whole neighborhood knows that there has been a birth in the miller's family if the arms are seen in the po sition of a narow capital X, and with the two upper sails unfurled. If the miller is being married, the arms form a broader X, with all the sails unfurled. A death in the miller's family is announced by the wheel being turned till the arms form an upright cross, with all the sails unfurled. When this signal is shown all the other mills of the region show their sympathy by following suit. The code of windmill "wireless" ia quite a lengthy one. The doctor can be called, an appointment postponed, and the message read miles away.

A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 May 1914
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyone wlio lias watched ants has wondered how they find their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist, M. Cornetz, who watched ants in Algeria, tells tho results of his observations. The ant, ho says, in its outward jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places itB body at the same angle, and walks in the opposite di rection. The body of the ant would, there fore, act as a kind of compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite incapable of finding ita way back. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The case is quite different if an ant iB allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. • On leaving the nest it places Itself in a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet en route, and no matter what aide tracks it may ...

"Well, most excellent, Mrs. Moggs!"' he said, cheerily. "Quite ready for Christmas?" "Christmas don't mean much to me these times," returned the thin-faced landlady.

HISTORIC STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 May 1914
HISTORIC STAINS. Visitors to the famous castle of Wartburg, in Germany, are always very carefully shown a big black patch upon the wall. The room where this stain upon the wall is shown was occupied by Martin Luther when he ' was a prisoner in this castle, and here he commenced his famous trans lation of the Bible. The tradition is that Satan appeared to him in this room in order to make certain plaus ible suggestions to the great Reform er. His reply was to take up his ink stand and throw it at his visitor's hrad. It crashed against the wall, leaving a stain which has been rever ently preserved ever 6ince. Undoubtedly the most interesting room in Scotland is the pleeping chamber of Alary Queen of Scots, in the Palace of Holvrood, which etill stands as it was when she occupied it. The walls are hung with tapestry, and half-covered by it is a small door leading to Queen Mary's secret stair. It was by this secret stair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Italian secreta...
BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 May 1914
BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. A delightful story Is told of the grand old professor of whom Edin I burgh is so proud. Professor Blackie was lecturing to a new class with whose personnel he was very imperfectly acquainted. In answer to some direction given by the lecturer, a student rose to read a paragraph, his book in his left hand. "Sir!" thundered Blackie, "hold ' your book in your right hand." And as the student would have spoken, "No words, sir! Your right hand, I say!" | The student held up his right arm, ending piteously at the stump of its wrist. "Sir, I hae nae richt hand," he said, and his voice was unsteady. Before Blackie could open his lips, there arose from the class 6Uch a ter rific storm of hisses as one perhaps must go to Edinburgh to hear, and by ; if his voice was overborne as 'by a wild eea. Then the professor left his place and went down to the student he had unwitfingly so hurt. He put his arm about the lad's shoulders and drew him close, and the lad leaned up against hi...
