MR E. W. ALABONE DEATH OF SPECIALIST [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
MR E. W. ALABONE DBATdEI OF SPECIALIST I am sorry to see the death an nounced of Mr E. W. Alabono, the well known specialist in pulmonary con sumption, whoso name has often figured in tho pages of "Truth" (says "Truth"). Mr Al&bone's story iB an in teresting and instructive one. While still a young man he devised a treatment of consumption whicH had very remarkable success. He had, however, one' or two Indiscreet friends on the press who puffed his perform ances in a way that attraoted the notice of the guardians of professional "ethics," and he was brought before tho General Medical Council and struck off the register. That generally means extinction and ruin, but Mr Alabone fought on, and fought successfully. On the principle that you may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, he availed himself of his freedom to start advertising in earnest; and he built up for himse f a large practice, which continued to flourish down to the time of his death. i The trial of Mr Alabone b...
CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
CHAPTER XIV. The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered 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 und the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked frail and 'excited. Her wan cheeks were flushed hectically, and she shed tears at frequent intervals. The ibride and her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thorne and his best man had only just taken their place at the al tar rails. The nurse companion was seated •beside Mrs. Price; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, -was oji the other side of her mother. Next to her was Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too hig for him. He looked as if he -would hav...
MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller in an article in the January "Hibbert Journal" says:— THE FAMILY [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
MORALS OF THE NURSERY OXFORD PROFESSOR'S VIEWS Professor F. C. S. Schiller in an article in the January "Hibbert Jour nal" savs:— THE FAMILY The family is the only mechanism which human wit has ever contrived that has attractiveness enough to bind the individual's caprice to travel in regular orbits, and to build up an or derly society out of tile gravitation of social units. It is a successful mech anism just because it is so much more than a mechanism. It is a biological necessity and a psychological craving, and a training ground for every de velopment of ethical, spiritual, and economic life. The family lies at the roots both of the school and of the factory, and of the Church, though all these institutions have sometimes grown into unnatural forms which in jure and repudiate their origin. "I remember that when I was an undergraduate we were once set an essay by Jowett, the great Master of Balliol, on the Origin of our Moral Ideas, and embarked on a great var iety of theories, v...
SEARCH FOR A "GRAVE" [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
SEARCH FOR A "GRAVE" The "confession" of wife-murder made by George Hardy, of Birming ham, who is in custody at Dudley on a charge of stealing a bicycle, has proved to be baseless (says "The Dally Mail," March 26). All day yesterday police were scour ing the district for the "grave" where the man said he had burled his girl wife. Eventually he told the police that the woman was alive, and this they found to be true. The wife returned to her mother's houso at Birmingham yesterday. Neigh, bors were in the street discussing the supposed tragedy when the "murdered" woman was seen walking down the street She said she knew nothing about the matter until that morning. Her land lord at "Wolverhampton had said to her, "Look here, this paper says your husband has confessed to murdering and burying you." "That upset me awfully," she added, "and I left my breakfast and decided to come to Birmingham to see what it is all ab'o'ut."

CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
CHAPTER XIII. After Thome's departure a silence fell on the family, during which Mr. Price, absent-mindedly, drained the dregs of the champagne bottle into the gladd that had done duty for the bro ken one. Queenle had not left her place beside her mother. Before quit ting the room, Thorne had crossed to her and again kissed her. It was the eve of their wedding and only the fam J ily were present. On the surface lie had acted as if he counted himself al ready a member of the family. On the surface—to an uninitiated spectator— it would have appeared homely, human , and unaffected. In reality, that kiss was almost an act of revenge. She had risen to her feet. She had not winced. She had not averted her lips. "Good-night, Michael!" she had said. "Mother's a little tired and excited." In that way she excused hersek from accompanying him from the , room. "Mother," she said, breaking the si- ! lence that followed his exit, "it's time j you went to"&lt;bed. I'm going to tuck I you u...
