HIS OWN MESSENGER. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 7 January 1914

Mlft OWN MFftfcFNftFR. No one enjoys feeling that ho. lias been the object of a clover trick; •yet tlioro nro circumstances in rtlcll pique muat yield ,to the humor o£ the situation. In the" days when Califor nia did not seem as near the East as travelling by rail has since made it, a man entered the office o£ a San FranciBco banker, and said— "I want exchange for this on New York." v "All right, what is it?" The man looked around him fear fully and then Brought out a packet. "It's twenty-flVe thousand dollars in greenbacks." "I guetfs I can do it! Going East?" "Yes; I'm going to-morrow. I don't want to carry all this with me. Could not do it. Sure to get robbed. So give me a draft." "Oh, seeing it's you, one per cent.— two hundred and fifty dollars." "It goes."

SWIMMING AT EIGHTY-TWO. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 7 January 1914

SWIMMING AT EIGHTY-TWO. Mrs. Blackie, the Yorkshire woman of eighty-two, whose swims near Llan dudno have created a mild sensation, cannot understand what there is to make a fuss about. • "Why do people go to the seaside,", sho asked an interviewer,not, Jo.; • bathe?*'- ■' ' .-""•In'^lier youth she took a delight in 'bathing, but before last week she had not had a dip in the sea for fifteen years. She made her own costume for this occasion, and it was not one of the costumes of to-day, but one. "such as girls used to wear in my youth." Her keenness is the more remarkable seeing that she is lame and nad to be helped into the water. Mrs. Blackie, who lives in a fine old house at Mirfield, has views on bathing. Once she wore a cap in the water, but "it was so funny," she says, "feeling the water running over my head that I flung the cap away. And then there is all this talk," she added, "about rubbing yourself with a hard, rough towel, and drying your self thoroughly. What is the use, ...

CHAPTER XXXVI. The Fawn Coat Again. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 7 January 1914

CHAPTER XXXVr. The Fawn Coat Again. The file fell from Avis's nerveless hand, and the paste gems lay neglect ed 011 the table. Israels liad struck home with a vengeance. 'The whole thing was so dramatic, so swiftly un expected and so disconcerting, that Avis could only groan and look to his partner for support. But if possible Vanstono was in rather worse condi tion than Avis. It seemed as if the Uaron had stretched a long arm out from the blue and caught them both in a vice-like grip. How had he work ed it? How had he brought this strange thing to pass. Undoubtedly this was the very case which Arnold Gray had brought from Berlin on be half of the Princess Zena Victoria of Bohn. This was the very case which had been stolen from the diplomatist when on liis way from Dover to Char ing Cross. And, of course, it was the same case which Jim Farrant had handed over to his allies..Either some one had played a cruel hoax, or the Princess had pawned or sold her jew els, and had tliem replace...

CHAPTER XXXV. "When Thieves Fall Out—" [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 7 January 1914

CHAPTER XXXV. I "When Thieves Fall Out " It was a favorite expression of Avis's, based upon a good deal of painful experience, tliat you never can tell what the public will do where money is in question. There are good things they w ill ,-neyer toucb anrt^0^ thiiww: #»>»■'* —■; " , . wo"r I'generally good things, and his great Oil Issue had been subscribed half-a dozen times over. Having assumed that those all-Important letters itere positively lost beyond recovery, Avis and his partner had proceeded boldly, and when Ruperra's death had been announced, the Mediterranean Com pany ought to have collapsed like a house of cards. But, strange to say, it did nothing of the sort. In the face of heavy selling the ordinary share holders remained in a state of stolid indifference. They refused to part with holdings, and by the end of the week Vanstone and Avis were forced to look matters in the face. Gener ally it was their rule to avoid the city on a Saturday, but they were there on that ...
