SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." : That Christmas is no longer a fes tival, but a nulsanne, has long been a heresy privately held by many.

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 March 1914
PRICES AND WAiES FOOD PRICES INDEPINDINT OF PAY (By L. 0. Chlozza Money, in "Daily News and Leader.") Staring out at me from the columns of a daily newspaper, publ!shed as the consIdered utterance of a member .o Parliament, I see a statement to the offect that if the wages of British work mon were doubled to-morrow, .the change would be of no value to them because the prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they woold be no better of than before. It Is necessary to take serious note of this statement, because I find it Is the expression of an opinion which Is widely held up and down the United fingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because of the reaction in prices which has taken place during the last half generation. Because that rise in prices has can celled the value of the rise in wages in the same period, people have Jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and higher prices are necessary coucomi tants of each other. It is...

She had loved him before the great shock of a contest for her, more un :scrupulous, more terrible than the struggle of two men loving one girl :ls'wont to be in civilised times. 8he had loved him still when he had to make his confession-a confession not only.of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she ever been again the same bright, lovely Notta of the first happy. days at the farm? -- "Never," he thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shock ,of his revoeations. In any case, she :had 'submitted to his wishes-had given her promise to be his wife; nor had she-spotless, innocent of all ,worldly desires-been In the ...

ST. PANCRAS Mrs H. B3. Irving, famous as the crea tor of the part of "Trllby" on the stage. has played nmany popular roles, but none Inmore popular than that of "pud dling lady" down St. Pancras way. Tile name is an invention of the chil dren, and it has stuck.

She related some of her experiences to a "Daliy News" representative: "I may lnd tile mother Ill in bed when I visit a home." she said.'
