A Mark of Nationality. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
A Mark of Nationality. Sir David Gill, the famous astrono mer, was once emphasising the extra ordinary care and minuteness with which astronomical observations were taken. One observation, he said, was rather similar in its extreme minuteness to attempting to see - the hundredth part of the diameter of a threepenny-bit that was a mile away. "One can see that you're a Scots man, retorted one of his hearers. "Nobody else womd bother about the hundredth part o£ a threepenny-bit a mile away!"

Not a Secretary. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
Not a Secretary. Sam had worked on the farm for nine years, and until his master took to poultry-farming he was quite satis fied with life. But this poultry busi ness was.a bit too much. He had to take the eggs as they were laid and write the date on them with an in delible pencil. And worse than that, he had also to write on the eggs the breed of the hen that laid them. So one day he marched up to the farmer. "I'm about fed up," said he, "and I'm going to leave. The farmer was astounded. "Surely, Sam, you're not going to leave me after all these years'." "Yes, but I am," retorted Sam. "I've done every kind of rotten job on this here farm, but I'd sooner starve than go on being secretary to your old hens!" People who marry for fun haye a most perverted sense of huiror.
CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
CHAPTER XI. . While Sheila, was happy as girl could bo. without, as she- expressed it, a care ia the "world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellairs. It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed—as far as she could tell—to cease to exist. Bellairs was kind to her, paying her every possible attention, but he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it in one of his, nor did he look into her eyes with the loving-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellairs could not pet the pretty girl enough, but he never turned to his w.Te with the old dearly longed-for 'ook in his eyes. Moreover, there was no dou'bt but that Peter Bellairs, K.C., no longer absolutely trusted Margaret. It was he who paid the bills as ...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "Tlie Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X. Those of us who have not been pre sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but lor the most part from newspapers and weekly periodicals. Sheila Danver'ss debut' differed l'rom that o£ other girls in two respects. In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her dress—which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction—was remark able, and, in the second', she wore the most magnificent pearls of any debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went off with the usual eclat, or perhaps one may say, want of eclat. The ' Duchess of Tewkesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered her presence, ana, without a moment's ;.nesitation, removed the...
Something to Help. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
Something to Help. When the Kaiser announced to Prince von Buelow that he had deci ded to appoint h" i Chancellor o£ the Empire, he was surprised to see a shadow of disappointment cross the statesman's face. ' What's the matter?" he demanded. "Are you nol satisfied?" "Pardon me, sire,'' replied the Prince, "I did not wish to, appear un grateful, but I was thinking of my wife. I know that she detests the im mense Chancellor's palace, where we shall have to live, and she will want the whole of "the interior thoroughly cleaned and redecorated. I am afraid, therefore, that we shall have to pass the next two or three months in the midst of cleaning operations." "Don't • worry about that, my dear von Buelow," replied the Kaiser. "Present my best compliments to the Princess, and tell her that I shall have much pleasure in helping her to make the task of cleaning easier for her." The new-made Chancellor thanked him, and retired, certain that the Kaiser would place, a regiment of cleaners at...
What It Meant. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
What It Meant. A good story is being told of a Padiametfiaviyi -i& of the next election. He was earnest ly expounding the emancipation of the laborer to an agricultural audience, and was approaching the heart of the subject, when he noticed that the countrymen lool'cu uneasily at one another. Could it be that he had not made the necessity of the great deliv erance clear to their minds. He re traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelinriary points over again. The uneasiness of the audience visi bly increased. At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door. It was a sig nal for a general movement. The elec tors oore the candidate no ill-will— they simply filed out. He wiped his brown, and turned in despair to the chairman. "What does it mean?" he asked. "I callqd them to liberty, and they turn their backs on me!" "It means," said the chairman, "that they fully appreciate your prin ciples, but it is nearly ten o'clock, and when that fatal hour has struck, they c...

CUPID FLIES TO FLYNTON HOW A MAN AND A MAID TRIED THE REST CURE WITH UNFORE , SEEN CONSEQUENCES. By William Freeman. They signed their names, one be neath the other, in the visitors' book —"Mary Nugent, London" . , . "John Weald, Ealing." It being now live o'clock in the afternoon, they were sitting on the hdlel verandah, star ing over their magazines at the sea. Flynton Regis is a small place. Fur ther—this is as remarkable as it is delightful—it is a place with small ambitions. For the fact that it does not advertise sulliciently to attract the casual tripper its regular visitors are profoundly grateful. Except at the height ot the summer, you will not meet a dozen unfamiliar faces on its microscopic parade. Jt was now April. The slopes be hind the town were lemon-colored with a carpet of primroses. The short grass on the uplands beyond was of the purest, deepest emerald. The sea vas still ruffled—for there liad been the very dickens of a storm the day before—but vividly blue unde...

EAR-WAGG[?]RS NEVER DEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 30 May 1914
EAR-WAGG-R^ NEVER DEAF. You will rarely find a man who can Wag his ears suffers from deafness. The reason for this is very simple, Wagging one's. ears exercises them ju'st as much as walking exercises the muscles of the legs. A greht deal of deafness Is caused -jy the muscles of the ears becoming stiff and refusing to respond quickly to the sound waveB. Quite a large proportion of children can move their ears, just as they can m6ve the skin on their forehead up and down, but as they grow up they lose their powpr through want of prac-, tice. It Is a mistake to let a child lose this power, for it may mean the difference between good and bad hearing in after-yoars. •Dr. M. Fernet, the famous Paris doctor, has e/en gone so far as to suggest that people should be trained to wag their ears- just as much ne they are trained to exercise .any other muscles of the body. Every woman wants to be loved in a particular way, and if a man knoWB his business he finds out what it is, and behaves acco...

A Wise Precaution. Two seamen—an Irishman and a Scotsman—had been breaking leave anil had been ordered to receive ten strokes of the "cat." They had pre viously held very good characters, and, taking this into consideration, the captain said that if they wished to wear anything to protect their backs a little they might do so. The Scotsman replied that he would like to have a strip of canvas on his back, and this request was granted. "What would you like to have, Pat?" asked the captain, turning to the second seaman. "Shure, sir," was the reply, "if it's all the same to you, I'd like to have the Scotsman ou my back!"

ROKEWOOU JIIACTIOS. EMPIRE DAY. Empire Day was enthusiastically celebrated on 22ud in&t. at the local State school.
