"Oh, I know that. Tell me." " It makes her kind care of you -more than ever remarkable," said the doctor, rubbing his hands with the glee of having a secret worth some thing. " Do you know her name?" Guy went to the window and drummed impatiently. The' infatua tion of all these people irritated him bejond endurance. It was then that he decided he would come to detest her. "Do you know that I never learned what it was?" said Lady Darlington. I asked her, too; several times and finally she told me she was sel dom called by it-and I never asked agai#i." "Of course, of-course," chuckled the doctor, "it would have betrav. ed her at once if she had told you." ." I shall fall ill again if y.ou do not tell me at once," said Lady Dar lington.

CARS DE LUXE. THE GRAND DUKES' EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
CARS DE LUXE. 4 THE GRAND DUKES' EXPRESS. The last word in luxurious railroad travelling is the new service from Paris to the Riviera by what is al ready known on the boulevards as the '. Grand Dukes' express." This is a sly dig at the numbers of wealthy and extravagant Russian aristocrats who make their headquarters in Paris and whoi flit south with unfailing regularity as soon as the grand ses sion at Monte Carlo commences. The new cars, of which so far there are only three, look unpretentious enough from the outside ; they are of polished) wood of a light-brown shade with a dull finish. It is in side that the greatest luxury is dis played. For patriotic reasons every thing is of French manufacture. The sides are panelled with the rarest kind of inlaid French woodwork : heavy curtains and deep pile carpets come from the famous Lyons silk looms and velvet factories. Valuable paintings adorn the walls. Each car is a complete self-contained flat on wheels, consisting of a drawing roo...
THE DRAWBACK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
THE DRAWBACK. In a certain town are two brothers who are engaged in the retail coal business. A noted evangelist visit ed, the town,, and the elder brother was converted. For weeks after his conversion he endeavoured to persuade his brother to join the church. One ,day he said toi him, "'Why can't you, Richard, join the church, as I did ?" ".'It's, all right for you. to be a member of the church," replied Richard,-?'.'but if I join who's going to weigh the coals ?" Professor : "Young man, I am 79 years old, and I never smoked a shred of tobacco in my life." Student (puffing cigar) : "Well, sir, you're not too old to learn, I as sure you.

DUELLING. ITS COMIC SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
DUELLING. ITS COMIC SIDE. There were some festivities taking place in a church in an Ohio village, when one of the villagers, who was noted throughout the countryside aq a bully, entered the church and creat-i ed some disturbance. 1 he pastor, a square-jawed man from Maine, re quested him to leave the place,t and when he refused, escorted him rather forcibly to the door. The next day the minister received a challenge. He was not the fy'nd of man to refuse and his acceptance was sent promptly. By. the code of duelling the choice of weapons remained with the pas tor, and he chose a basket of pota toes at five paces. It was a hot bat tle, and lasted for five minutes ; but the divine was an ex-baseba'l pit cher, and his adversary was carried from the field of combat' in a badly battered condition. The choice of weapons falling to the challenged occasionally leads to some curious encounters. During the strong anti-British fever at .Marseil les, in the early stages of the Bosr war, a note...
MECCA'S PILGRIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
MECCA'S PILGRIMS. Although one of the most inacces sibly cities on earth, Mecca each year has visitors in such number that it must be ranked in this par ticular with London and New York. Even the world's metropolis on the Thames can boast no such cosmo politan character as is imparted to this mysterious city in the wil derness of Arabia by the pyramids cf pilgrims, who at the cost of incre dible pains annually crowd into its confines. This city is the oldest place of resort in existence, yet of all the millions who have visited it not a score of 'Christians are known to have come out alive. No flag of citizenship would save a man's life were he known to be a Christian within the sacred precincts of tha city, where the prophet himself de creed that no unbeliever should set foot. Of the 225,000,000 Moslems in the world only 15,500,000 live under the Turkish flag, yet most of them acknowledge the Sultan of Turkey as theiri caliph, the successor of the Prophet. As Mahammed shrewdly fore...
SECTIONAL GARMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
SECTIONAL GARMENTS. The use of sewing machines ccn-. tinues to increase in Japan, accord ing to an American Consular re port. The adoption of occidcncal clothing and styles, which is espe cially noticeable in the cities, will naturally enlarge the demand for sewing machines. If the native pre judice against stitchcs showing, could be overcome, or a ma'h"n3 could be devised for invisible stitch ing, the making of kimonos alone would add wonderfully to the de mand for machines. Most Japan:se garments are basted together so that they may be taken apart for washing, and the threads are saved for use over and over aira'n. Iha probability is that Japan will not attempt the manufacture of sewing machines for several years at least.
MOTOR-CYCLISTS AMAZING FEAT [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
MOTOR-CYCLISTS AMAZING.PEAT :A striking illustration of 1h city of the motor-cycle is luml-lied by the record recently set &lt;!p by Mr. Ha'-ry Long, tha well-krowii Yorkshire cycling champion, who has just completed a jouinjy of 40,000 miles on a mot'-r-cycle in ten months. To accomplish his ride he went round the whole of the coast line of Great Britain, in addition to other mill-age ; and, carrying no head-light, he had necessai'Ily to ride only between dawn and dusk. V, Int makes the ti ip more note worthy is the fact that prior to set ting out on his journey, which he anticipated would orc'.'py twelve months.Mr. Long had only a wcec's tuition in looting after his mo. nt. He had only ten punctures during hia ride, but had the unpleasant exper ience of having to sleep twice in the the open and to ride through a ten day's downpour of rain while in Stotl&tid. Once, in the North of Scotland, Mr. Long almost had bis attempt brought to a sudden end. Riding along a road...
WORLD-WIDE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
WORLD-WIDE NOTES. ±-?-. Even people who take no .interest in, other animals acknowledge the fasci nation of the very word badger; may Ue they have never seen one, stuffed, still less the creature in the flesh, yet they will generally pause to look at a drawing or photograph of one, for they feel this is the last of the really wild animals of the British Isles, or perhaps^ I should say the last big one. The red deer, the fox, and so on, live and thrive because man permits them to, because they provide sport for him ; therefore he extends them his protection. But Brock knows well that every hand is against him, that little sha dow of mercy is ever extended to him, and ever since those long: gone by days when wolves and beavers made their homes among these hills and valleys he has struggled, grimly and gamely, against overwhelming odds for mere existence, but in ever d'imia'ishingi numbers. .Franois rit\ in the "Badmibton Magazine/1

AN EARLY RISE. , '''So you aro looking for a situa tion," said the riferchant to the youth with high collar and creased trousers. "What can you do ?" '"Oh, anything," replied the youth.

You will rise at four o'clock every morning and sweep the floors."
PETER MARRIED LOUISE. WHAT YOU EAT DOESN'T COUNT FOR VERY MUCH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
PETER MARRIED LOUISE. &lt;-;-? WHAT YOU BAT DOESN'T COUNT FOR VERY MUCH. In high social circles the girl who wants to cut put another girl orders new dresses and more hats. Among savages she sticks on a few more beads and feathers. But in small, Middle Western towns she rolls up her. sleeves, opens the flour bin, and makes something calculated to knock! the spots ofl anything culinary the other girl ever dared dream of. That was why Mrs. Fruby said to her daughter with a hint of excite lr.cnt in her voice, "'Try him on bea ten biscuits, Sadie J And your cho colate marshm allow pudding !" It had been hard enough all her life for Mrs. Fruby to be outdone by Mary Sandler without having to en dure seeing Mary Sandler's daughter get ahead of her own Sadie. And of late Rosa Sandler had asked ? Peter Vernon to dinner entirely too often to suit Mrs. Fruby's plans. So had half a dozen other girls. For Peter Vernon was a matrimonial prize, the like of wtyich a small town .^oss not see...
ORIGIN OF THE THIMBLE. FIRST ONE MADE BY A DUTCH GOLDSMITH FOR A LADY FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 30 May 1914
ORIGIN OF THE THIMBLE. FIRST ONE MADE BY A DUTCH GOLDSMITH FOR A LADY - FRIEND. The modern \ thimble dates from 1684, when ? the . goldsmith Nicholas Benschoten, of Amsterdam, sent one as a birthday present to a lady friend, with the benediction-"To My frouw van Rensclaer this little ob ject which I have invented and exe cuted as a protective covering for her industrious fingers." The invention proved such a suc cess that all who saw it tried to ob tain similar ones, and the goldsmith had enough to do to supply them. An Englishman named John Lotting took one specimen home with him and copied it by thousands. At first thimbles were rather cost ly, and only well-tordo people could afford them, but afterward, when made of lead and other common metals by machinery, they becama very cheap. Their use was a great relief to all who had much sewing to do, and blessings were invoked oa the inventor. The Dutch tingerhat (finger hood), hecame in England the '.'thumb bell," from its bell-like sh...
