THE HAUNTED HOUSE. [COPYRIGHT.] [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
BY-E . IBiTAND. .[COPYRIGHT.] It wvis by the merest accident that Des mond ever wVent to the Haunted. House. He had been away from England for six years, and the nine months' leave taught him how easily one drops but of one's. place. He had taken rooms at the Greyhound before lie found that there was no rcasoh-r why he should stay in Elmstead rafher than in any other of London's dismal ouf posts. He wrote to all the friends whose. addresses he could remember; and; settled himself to await their answers. He wanted somieone to talk to, ,ind there was no. one. Meantime lie lounged on the horsehair sofa with the advertisements, and his plasant grey cyes followed line after' line .with. intoleiable boredom. Then, sud denly, "Halloa !" he said, and sat up. This is what he read: A Haunted 1louse.-Advertiser is auxious to have phenomena investigated. Any properly-accredited investigator will be given full facilities.

COURSING COURSING GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
. COUR~BIC iSOSSP. BY HOTSPUR. Souclhing on the death- of Mr. R. A. Brice, tihe English coursing judge, a local writer. says: Those who know public coursing cannot but re-. griet the deathof its many years'- principal judge. Thle late Mr. Robert Alfred 3rice died at Withani, in Essex, at the age of 60. As judge of the Waterloo Cup for many years, he took top rank, and must :be regarded as an exceedingly lucky mnan. To .judge one near thing to the satisfac tion of the owners of both dogs is almnost im piosible to a novice; it neecds more confidence in the judge's eyes than in one's own to lose w.ithout a hostile thought. HIow muchl confidence in excess of this does it needl to bie allowed to decide 51,326 courses? The answer to that ques tion is thle measure of the confidence reposed in Mr. Bries. The measure of the man is not even fairly thaken at that, for one previous Waterloo judge hadaretired :ot so ma?~a years before Me:r. Brice's first appoinfmnrnt with the voice ol a Iostile ...

A ROYAL REPUBLICAN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
A ROYtA firgP.icGAN, Does King Alfonso remember the time when he actually cheeredl the advent of a republic, and that in the royal palace it self? Spain's cheerful young Kiing may be unconventi6nal, and even indiscreet at times, but he is hardly likely to equal this indiscretion of his very early youth. IHIe had been locked in a room in the palace at Madrid, as a punishment for un ruly behavior, by his motlher,'Queen Maria Christina. When he found that his-appeals for release were not heeded, he Went to the window and shouted at the' top of his shrill little voice, "Viv\a la Repub lica!" A bomb could hardly have caused more surprise than such a revolutionary cry in the palace itself. "Vamois terminar el escandalo." (Let us put an end to this scandal), cied the Queen Mother, surren dering unconditionally; and before the Arts and Crafts IHouse, built by teachir and his wife. royal rebel could repeat his cry three times he had regained his liberty.

CURVED GLASS IN SHOP WINDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
CURVED CLASS IN SHOP WINDOWS. A sho'v window which rendcers objects on display as clearly visible as though there were no glass at all has recently been in stalled, in one of the big New York de partment stores. The new "shadow box"' window eliminates all reflection and thus avoids the common and annoying fault in the ordinry display window which reflects sky, buildhiigs, street traffic, &c., more lbril liantly than it displays the merchandise the store offers for sale. The new type of window, which is patented, is divided into an upper and a lower light, the latter extending to a. height well above the head of a very tall persen., and each glass is curved inward. The curve, which has been determined after careful study of optical Plain Window Shows Cbnfursing Pflections. laws, diverts the rays of light from the street, downward or upward, at an angle at which the diverted light rays strike a .black plate which absorbs them. In the ordinary window on brilght sunshiny ldays i...
AN EXCELLENT GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
AN EXCELLENT. CAME. "Grarb Croq-uet" is an xcellent outdoor game. It can be played in a field, not necessarily on a smooth lawn. IThe object in this, croquet is to keep grabbing a score from any one of the other players, five or seveni making a good numberfor the game. Each person pilays alone, no Ipartners be ing allowed, therefore eadh player must necessarily have a difflerent colored ball and mallet. The hoops, &c., are laid as for ordinary croquet, but the playing is ut terly different. The game is commeneced by going tlhfrough a hoop or else knooking the peg, which coumts as one. Each player is'only allowed one stroke at a time, un less he or #he hits another ball, and can then add his or her opponent's score to her own up to ten, but when a person has reached ten, that number is "'banked," and cannot be appropriated by aaayone, and t:he pl?ayer proceeds to make another ten. W'ben a player has been thfough t~he hoop or hit the peg (standilig a fair distance away), shle ...

A TOUCH O' THE BROGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
A TOUoH O' THE BROCUE.. It is suggested that the fact tChat; Sir Edward Carson lhas a wieighlity broue is a drawback to ihim in Uistei'. This is non. sense. The B3el'ast brogue is the most pronounced in the whole of Irclan~d, for the vowels are shorter than in Cork, and the hard consonants harder than in' Glas gow.. In ,Diublin, where;,tihcy th.ink tbhy spealk the most perfcc? English in the world -tfhey call it Dwbid-there is little or no accent, only an inflection, which alwvays betrays tihe speaker's rirgin. Diblin people are coiuitcd affected and Anglicised in Cork and Galway. The IriSh accint, as a matter of fact, is very elusive. Irishmen -aho have been at sdhool in England generally lose it in' their youth, as, for instance, Mr. Stephen Givynn, one of the Nationalist M's.P., who was at Oxford. Parinell lost lhis ot Cam Ibridge, and it never came back to him. On t:he other hand tihere are men who have never been in Iieland w'ho minghtl hae come straigh1t from the quays of Cork...
