GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret < Rand," etc. Published by arrangefnent with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER IV. Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting lier news, for il' there were an up _ right, steadfast, high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might not like her having written to the hotel to invite Mr. Kruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law yer to Sunnyside.

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 29 April 1914

CHAPTER V: When Sheila came to Sunnyside it was precisely as though the entire liouse was lit up by something joyful, something which strongly resembled sunshine. Sheila, whatever the Afri kanders thought of her, was only a child, and she behaved exactly like one on this occasion. Her face was wreathed in smile?, her eyes were more expressive even than usual, the gleam of her pearly teeth showed when she laughed and talked. She was particularly affec tionate to Peter Bellairs and to Mar garet, his wife. She ran gaily about the grounds picking the daffodils and violets, and altogether behaving like a young thing who had never before enjoyed the delights of full -liberty. Sheila was very much interested in her new garments, and as she tried on each jacket, each skirt, each hat with its simple band of ribbon, she flew out to try to find her beloved Uncle Peter. She always called him Uncle Peter. ■ Ho was her beloved, her darling. Peter Bellairs gazed cri tically at the frocks and hats....

There was a slight falling off in entries and attendance, owing principally, io a counter attraction and the day not being a public holiday.

My digestion was affected •also. I wont to a doctor, but had no Caitli in his treatment. Then I was advised to try Warner's Safe Cure, and after taking that medicine for a short time I found that it was doing me so much gool that I continued to take it. Now I am in the best of health."

. A MILK-WHITE STEED. A school teacher once set his class of boys a composition on the "horse," the following being'elven:— "The horse is a very noble beast, he eats oats and sawdust. He goes on four legs. He does not stay out late at night, nor pull faces at his little sister, nor tease his grandmother, things which I think is bully for the horse. He does not have to wash his face in the morning. (I wish I was a horse.) There is many differ ent kinds of horses: saw horse, omni-, bus horse, war horse, hoss-radisli, hoss pistol, Colt's revolver and a donkey > (he ain't got nothing to do-.with the subject, but we'll throw him in). There's only one kind that's good to eat, and that's hoss-pistol—I mean, hoss-radish. Some folks like a reddish horse, then again, some like a milk-white steed,—with flowin' tail and main erect, but for me, give me a coal-black steed with fiery-red nos trils and flashin' eye, or gimme death.

DO WE LIVE LONGER? [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 29 April 1914

DO WE LIVE LONGER? It is generally maintained that we live longer than the ancients did. But researches among the tombs of Ro man times in Italy and Spain are far from proving this. There was certainly a larger infant mortality, but the expectation of life between fifty and sixty in ancient Rome was equcii to our own, an'd after sixty the Romans had the advantage. I Soldiers, in particular, lived to an extreme old age, in some cases reach ing 100 years. The longevity of the Romans was due to a high Infant mortality. Only 1 the fit survive By taking great care of the young we have reduced tlii mortality, 'but at the same time we have not added to the average length of life. This is not difficult to under stand, for if the weakly and the deli cate survive childhood, they do not as a rule live to old age. A high rate of infant mortality means, in fact, a low death-rate after sixty, and vice-versa. The ancient Roman hat; a lesk chance of living to twenty, but if he survived he had a gre...

the deads care for the i - living soul. , A StranQe Story With a Strange Sequel. A strange ghost story, in which the principals are said to be people of the highest social position, is, according to the "Express," engaging the atten tion of London society. A Kensington vicar was leaving the church after choir practice when a lady stepped out of the aisle and ask ed him in agitated tones to come with her at onee to an address near by. •'A gentleman is dying there," she said. "He is extremely concerned aibout the state of his soul and anx ious to se you uefore he dies." The clergyman followed her to a waiting taxi-cab, and a short drive round the corner brought them to a mansion. The lady, who seemed to be extremely agitated, urged the vicar to hurry. He sprang out of the cab, rang the hell, and a butler appeared. "Does Mr. live here?" "Yes, sir." "I hear he is seriously ill ^nd has sent for me." The butler seemed astonished al most beyond words.
