Dear Dr. Egan, It has come to my knowledge that my wife was reading the enclosed scrap book kept by her old father for many years 2 days before the collapse, she told my sister when visiting the hospital last weekend that she thought she had been reading too much about the deaths in the family connection. I spoke to Dr. McElderry to-day and he thought you might like to see it in case it might have any bearing on my wife's condition. She seemed according to my sister to have been trying to read it when I would not be around but over what length of time she had been reading it I do not know.  It came into her possession about 4 months ago from her sister-in-law who wanted it out of her house. Yours sincerely David Mahood

February 1888 - Interesting Proceedings at Drumbeg
The good feeling which exists amongst the tenants on the various estates in the North of Ireland is proverbial, and was fittingly illustrated this week on the extensive farm of Mr. Alexander Graham, at Drumbeg, County Down. It having become known that Mr. Graham had received possession of the farm which he purchased a short time ago from the representatives of the late Mr. Kirkwood, his new neighbours determined to give him a practical greeting, and on Wednesday last appeared on the premises with at least thirty-six ploughs, which, after a few preliminaries, were in the hands of a like number of sturdy sons of the soil doing "active service."  The arrangements made were capital, and in a short time a great many acres had been broken.  After Mr. Graham had in suitable terms thanked his friends, and mutual expressions of good-will had been exchanged, the company departed to their several homes.


Missing Word Competition No. 44
Few people know that there is a kind of spider which spins no web.  It is called "the hunting spider," and its favourite hunting grounds are alls, the surfaces of which are well exposed to the sun.  It is a most interesting sight to see one of these savage little creatures in search of a dinner.  It prowls along for all the world like a little lion, until it catches sight of a fly.  Then there is a moment's pause, while the attacker surveys the ground with a view to deciding the best course to take.  As soon as his mind is made up at this point he pulls himself together and advances on his prey ----

Brothers Receive "Calls."  March 1912?
The Rev. J. Stanley Pyper, of Dervock, who has received a call to the well-known Irish seaside resort of Portrush, and his brother, the Rev. James Pyper, of Londonderry, who is going to Duncairn, Belfast, to succeed the Rev. Dr. George Hanson, who has accepted a call to Montreal.  The brothers represented Ireland many times in International football matches

Say it Quickly
The following tongue-twister appeared in a Cumberland newspaper, and is quoted by "Men's Wear" :-
Tom Rye tried his tie twice to tie,
But, tugging too tight, tore the tie,
Tom turned to Ted Tye,
Then told Ted to try
To tie the tie Tom tried to tie.
