THE RECRUIT AND HIS BAYONET. How He Learns to Use It. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

THE RECRUIT AND HIS BAYONET. How He Learns to Use It. "They can't stand the bayonet," is what our soldiers say of the Turks, for cold steel in the hands of the Bri tishers soon makes the enemy break and run. The British soldier excels in this form of fighting because he is so thoroughly trained in the use of the bayonet. In tne army each bayon et instructor only trains four pupils at a time, so that he can give every man individual tuition. "Tommy's" first lesson with cold steel is to- prod a padded jacket hung on a wall. He thus learns to thrust or parry and to jump forward or back. It also instils in him the important rule of always keeping his foe outside his steel blade, for once the enemy gets "inside'' the point of the bayonet is practically helpless. In bayonet fighting, in fact, the whole of the rifle must be kept in front of the body, and the soldier never draws his weapon back before making a thrust. After learning to attack, the sol dier is taught how to defend himself ag...

IS THE KAISER INSANE? A Study of the Chief Hun's Brain. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

IS THE KAISER INSANE? 1 A Study of the Chief Hun's Brain. | Is the Kaiser insane? This is a question which many people have I asked since last August, when the ' War„ Lord recklessly issued ultima 1 turns to the most powerful nations in i I Europe, and his erratic behavior dur ing-the last six months has done much to answer it in the affirmative. For the Kaiser's inhuman orders to his troops to spread the gospel of "fright fulness," his blasphemous claims to be a partner of "My old Ally God," and, above all, his calamitous mis takes in conducting the war can hardly be regarded as the actions of a man in his right mind. It is interesting, therefore, to hear what doctors and those personally ac quainted with the Kaiser have to say concerning his sanity. Many physi cians consider that the War Lord's family tree is quite sufficient proof that he is a very suitable candidate for the mad-house. It is certain that, if an individual born outside royal circles possessed, so mentally afflict ...

DEADLY BRITISH RIFLES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

DEADLY BRITISH RIFLES. I Quite a number of people believe that cartridges are served out to the soldiers separated from one another. Cartridges are, however, usually given out fastened together in clips of five. The modern rifle used by the British Army is known as a magazine rifle, and holds two clips or ten cartridges in the magazine itself, as well as an extra cartridge above the magazine, eleven rounds in all. When the car tridge clip is forced into the magazine the fastening is removed, so that each cartridge, when it reaches the maga zine, is separate from the others. The magazine of the Army rifle is nothing more than a detachable box containing a spring. This spring forces up one cartridge at a time into its position ready for firing. As a rule the ten cartridges in the magazine are only used in great emergency, as when the order for rapid firing is given to stop an enemy's charge. In the ordin ary way the magazine, with its ten cartridges, is shut off from the rest of the r...

CHAPTER XX. A Second Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

■CHAPTER XX. A Second Mystery. Next day George Conway, walking through the village with his brother, saw a tbing which seemed rather to perplex him. It was the somewhat mysterious Madame Zarnow in close conference with the Austrian detec tive. Steinmarck, alias Johnson. They were pacing up arid down a short lane which ran outside the garden of 1 the White Lion. That they should be together was . natural enough, seeing they were 'practically compatriots and would have a common object— the discovery of Countess Mornay's murderer. Yet, somehow, the sight seemed to disturb George Conway. He had been greatly annoyed at the episode of the previous afternoon. Apart from a very natural objection to being caught love-making, the idea that this woman seemed to be spying upon him gave him keen annoyance, and for the remainder of his walk with Rosamund . Stanburgh he had seemed so upset by it that his fiancee rallied him a little on the subject. "It was provoking and absurd to be caught like th...

CHAPTER XIX. The Espial. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

CHAPTER XIX. The Espial. The sensational happenings and the consequent bustle at the Manor House had put a temporary stop to the lovers' meetings between Hubert Vaynor and Violet. Worst of all, their post-office had become in such awful fashion no longer available, and they had to wait for a chance meeting to be able to fix upon another. It came at last. On the day after Countess Mornay's funeral, Vaynor had made a point of spending as much time as he could in haunting Badger lane and the dell beyond, shrewdly guessing that on the first .chance of getting away unnoticed, Violet would resort there too. On this afternoon his patience and watchfulness were rewarded, and to his joy he saw Vio let coming across the Manor House field in the direction of the lane. He retreated down it till out of sight of the road, and was soon joined by Vio let. They had much to say to each other, and some of their news was not of a very hopeful character. Na turally, after the first rapturous greetings, ...

He arrived late last evening, and I have posted him in all the ascertained facts.'' "And you have not yet arrived at a definite theory?" "Scarcely," Rolt answered.

WEATHER-PROOF. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

WEATHER-PROOF. By Win. North. To those who are strong on theor ies, winter is a beneficent giant who kills all the naughty imps, and keeps all the good little people, both ani mal and vegetable, safe. To bear such wiseacres hold forth would lead one to suppose that the elements in this matter were all on the side of man. They talk about the frost kill ing the weeds and the harmful in spcts. The leatherjacket grub, about the gardener's and farmer's worst foe, may literally be frozen stiff, but is none the worse when the weather changes. The greenfly, so far from being wiped out by a severe winter, is more plentiful than ever because Liie early shoots of the roses are apt 10 be sickly, and therefore an easier prey. , There are plenty of other e_ggs be sides those of the aphidae which sur vive the keenest frost, just as tne seeds do which lie on the very surface of the earth. ' Did you ever know of a scarcity of weeds after a severe winter? "if you are a bird fancier have vou ever expe...

IV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

IV. A fortnight went by. During that time Howard's bride had full power at Arbuthnot; but she was rery un happy. The servants' curious glances, and their first very natural surprise at her solitary coming, hurt Eleanor like a series of blows. The days were unutterably long and silent; she yearned even for her busy office life. The security of regular meals, the warmth and spaces of the , big rooms, could not appease Eleanor. She knew now that all the luxury she had craved so dearly was nothing with out human companship, and she began to yearn for Howard's step and How ard's voice. To her loneliness was added the sting of an ugly self-re proach. How. disloyal, how unkind, she had been to the man who had lav ished so much upon her. How hard she had made it for him to perform what he believed was his duty. "If only I had acted differently; if | only " She strode the beautiful rooms in a passion of self-disgust. { Could Howard ever forget or forgive j those horrible words of hers? He ha...

in. Wlien Howard returned an hour later there was no sign of his brother, but a little pencilled note lay on the table. "I know you can't succeed, Howie, thanks ail the same. I'm off, for my instincts tell me to vanish. I've got a bit of money; when-that's done I'll let you know at Arbuthnot. My idea is to get abroad when the track's .clear." Howard crushed the paper in his hand. His interview with Wilwood had been one of the worst he had ever experienced. The man .showed a vio- . lent hostility to Jim. The affair should ; be made public, and detectives set to work. Jim was to suffer the full pen alty of the law. All Howard's rap cure for which Eleanor Rave was re sponsible, left him, an overwhelming nausea and hopelessness came in its place, yet his deep-seated love and pity for Jim, that readiness to sacrifice all for his needs, which had made of him a protecting and selfish guardian, were mingled with ,.his aching con tempt.

You Never Can Tell. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

You Never Can Tell. You never can tell what your I thoughts will do, In bringing you hate or love, For thoughts are things, and their airy wings Are swift as a carrier dove. They follow the law of the universe— Each thing ..must create its kind— And they speed o'er the track to bring you back Whatever went out from your mind. No secret is so insignificant that a woman doesn't consider it worth tell ing. "Speaking of hens." said an Ameri can traveller, "reminds me of an old hen my dad had on a farm in Dakota. She would hatch out anything from a tennis-ball to a lemon. Why, one day she sat on a piece of ice and hatched out two quarts of water!" "That doesn't come up to a club footed hen my old mother once had.'' said one of his hearers. "They had been feeding her by mistake on saw dust instead of oatmeal. Well, she laid twelve eggs and sat on them, and when they were hatched eleven of the chicks had wooden legs and the twelfth was a wood-pecker!" Too many of us are gardeners to our te...

HYPNOTISM FOR SHELL SHOCK. CURES BY ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 19 June 1915

HYPNOTISM FOR SHELL SHOCK. CURES BY ORDERS. One of the most interesting of the medical discoveries which have re sulted from the tending of the wounded and disabled is the value of hj-pnotic suggestion in the cure of men broken down under the constant physical and nervous strain of mod ern warfare. In the condition known as shell shock, in which the sufferer, though not actually hit by a shell, has suffer ed from temporary loss of memory, sight, smell, and taste, as the result of concussion, hypnotic suggestion has been the most potent remedy of the physicians in charge. Describing the treatment of one of these shell-shock cases, a physician at one of the Army hospitals stated: "The patient is seated in a chair and is brought by the operator into a slight degree of hypnosis in the ordin ary way. He is told to clear his mind of all other thoughts and to concentrate on the single subject of his cure. "If, as often happe'ns, his vision is affected, he is told quietly and firmly by the ...
