Dr. Lynch in sorted a rubber tube into the child's throat.

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement Into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her -re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon 'became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymoUB com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find 'on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, hut Dreher managed to reach New York with his pursue...
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. Ono of the . findings of science on the subject of poultry-keeping is that a hen requires one-fiftieth of her weight in food every day to maintain her bodily vigor. So, If a hen weighs 61b. 4oz. thu daily allowance of food ought to bo 2oz. But that allows noth ing for the manufacture of the egg. A hen in full lay is asumed to lay lOoz. in a wck. 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 ibe taken to give a well-balanced ration than when the fowls run free. In the ;. latter case the birds seldom ibecome too fat, and they keep themselves in health iby eating a variety of green food, which acts as n corrective to all sortB of complaintB to which other fowls are subject.

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of tho cheapest, simplest, yet moat effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium Bulphate.

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914
LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. .According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of It, and cpn Beemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or lood or light. He Ib neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet no nas um uuuruuiuma'iiwa w ail three. As for his eating, it seems quite euperflouous, for he can remain shut lip In a tiarrel for a numiber of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the .worse for the lack ot food and light and air. ,T (Tile baby turtle seems also just as: Indifferent to Its surroundings as its. parents are. As soon as It comes forth from Its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to 'teach or guldfi jt. In its ibraln seems implanted the Idea that -unltii Its armor becomes hard It has no defence against hungry flsh, apd so it seeks shelter In gulf tveeH" and feeds unmolested until its armor gpts hard. By th...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914
CARELESSNE8S THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, There arc tow people responsible for more harm In tlfe world than the thoughtless person; and his plea, when the damage Is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," Is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago; an old woman of Chicago left n lighted lamp In dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, wo may bo sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The lire which was started iby that over-turned lamp in the Chicago. cow-shed swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before tho last ember was quenched It had reduced to charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in tho inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damago was done to the extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there ore st...

Meanwhile thoro was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all Its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what he meant to do, and Bhe listened without protest. His own motor-car would be waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launolr would take them ashore. "They know mo here," he said, "there will bo no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to hold his tongue, I do not suppose the cacklo of it has travelled so far., Wo shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will bo time enough when we got there for my sister and mo to decide what Is the best thing to bo done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed liim—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," hp said, "Ueraidine is one ot the best little women in the world; she doesn't always seem to be, but that's her manner. As I am her principal divinity I shall bo very much surprised if she does not share my views. The great...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914
II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Ghris tabel had brought with it a meas ure o£ reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to bo her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when Bhe had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and-a successful flight.. Despair had car vied her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a montll must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pittan...
THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914
• THE FIRST PEN. ! In any large city, in the same block, possiBIy in the same building, can 'be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine : liair*hrush "was the first Instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts 'with a camel's hair pen dipped in Ink. Next door probaibly is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. , Between the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair .brush tor a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came linto use for Writing [in |the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was disco^ ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, and its use s...
WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914
WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when lie Is doing good. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he Is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may 'be a feast, but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds It difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a, 'busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling In or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that Is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct Is now described...

"Why, where are you going?".^ehe asked, in surprise. "To the—er—florist for more roses," he'called from the front door.

CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914
•CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. There was a close bond between the 1 lovers now, and its golden shackles were the music of their day. Hugh knew that she would speak presently, and tell him the whole truth of the tragic circumstance which had made or her an outcast. He -waited confi dently for her to speak, proud that she should be his guest, grateful for every glance which fell from lier eloquent eyes. To be sure, there were difficulties for them both—and not the least for midable was Geraldine. This shrewd Scotchwoman could snake little of the simple Irish girl who gave so poor a clue to lier trouble. Leila had made up her mind from the first to tell Geraldine nothing, and she did not lell her less. Her ingenuity took re fuge in vague bints and odd phrases which foiled her antagonist and left her powerless. Geraldine turned to the Archdeacon and- found in him a wor thy ark. "Something must be done at once," she said. The man agreed— though what the nature of that some thing should be,...
