Xow. misfortune may have very varying influences on one's life: it may have the stimulus of bracing a slack man to endeavor; it has been known to make of some poets, who. smarting under the goad of obscurity, have risen up and flung a masterpiece in the face of an as tonished world: others, again, taking the tide at its turn, have found their hands filled with riches; but of Phillip Prescott. and that in spite of youth, courage, and high spirits, it made—a pauper. Such a contingency had certainjy never entered his thoughts when, twelve months ago. in a lit of disgust and indignation at a palpable injustice done him. he had thrown up his com fortable "...

Thurgood, the kneeling man, knew the other was there, though he gave no sign. His ears had detected the sound of a horse's feet among the fallen leaves of the bush. Deftly, and without lifting his head, he had cut from the hide a small section upon which two letters were branded. This piece by a quick movement he thrust into his pocket. Then he continued, ap parently imperturbably, his work of skinning. Once he lifted his hand to his pipe, affecting a glance at the horseman. He saw it was Bathurst. It may have been seconds, it may have been minutes, after that when the horse of the man in the bush gave a snort and lift of the foot that broke all pretence of secretiveness on the part of the rider. Bathurst reined the beast, now snorting in good ear nest, round a clump of saplings, urg...

Autumn [For "The Weekly Times Annual"] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times Annual — 7 November 1914

[For "The Weekly Times Annual"] (3 LITTLE wind from out the west Went past my door last night, And stirred the roses in their sleep, And touched, upon its flight, The leaves of all my orchard trees With fairy magic bright. The swallows gather from the eaves On swift, excited wings, Already in their little hearts A warning instinct rings, And bids them flit in summer's wake In quest of endless springs. The leaves come rustling, rustling down In splendid crimson showers, From trellis of wistaria And fair Virginia bowers; The garden wears an aureole Of summer's last bright flowers. And up and down the lucerne flats With whirring- song all day, The mower and the hay rake go Their steady chosen way; And twilight time is scented with The breath of new-cut hay. The daffodils impatiently Await their sign of birth; All nature sings a deeper song Than that of summer's mirth; And where the ploughs have passed there comes The smell of fresh-turned earth. And orchard trees in magic garbed, And s...

Nan/' he said, looking at the brown faced girl in the door way. Without answering, she gazed up the narrow road winding out of sight in a haze of heat. Her grey eyes were troubled as she came out and sat down near her brother. "If he doesn't come soon, he'll have to take the short cut by the Pinch or be late," went on Jim. "For the first time—he's never been even an hour late before. Perhaps one of the horses has gone lame." Nan wrinkled up. her eyes, trying hard to imagine she saw a puff of dust where the road dipped to the creek. Jim shook his head. "More likely something's happened to him. If one of the horses was lame, he'd leave it and come on with the others." There was silence between them for a while, then Jim dragged himself up. "Run up the cows, will you, kid?'' he said; "the pear-cutters want meat, so ...

And this the tale they told to me when the children were abed, And on the broad hearth merrily the little flames ran red, How in the old south room he lay and drove his coach and four As once he drove it every day, as he would drive no more. They tied the reins to his bed-foot, and in a land of dream He raced his horses neck and neck against a phantom team; Four blacks behind a leader pale as the white moo...

The Collaborators [For "The Weekly Times Annual"] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times Annual — 7 November 1914

^ictore^, D-m-souter [For "The Weekly Times Annual"] ETER was not receiving company, but Molly Seguin, who held the freedom of all the studios, bustled past him, weathered the door screen in two boards, and flopped into a lounge chair wholly indifferent to his barely polite protestations. "It's not a bit of good, Peter. I just had to come in," she explained, patting a rebellious curl back into place with her grey-gloved hand. Molly always wore grey; it suited her creamy complexion, her china-blue eyes and her fluffy flaxen hair. She was a newspaper woman, a pen lady —a "she-penpusher" the less polite of the studioites sometimes called her. But Molly didn't mind—they were privileged, and so was she; therefore, she invaded Peter's studio wholly in different whether she was welcome or not. "I know your time is more valuable than mine," she babbled; "but all the same mine is just as scarce, even if I'm not a popular painter and the most renowned heart-destroyer of the age." "But, Molly,...

MURTY'S NEW MATE [For "The Weekly Times Annual"] [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times Annual — 7 November 1914

% Gofccarcf gt. qjorenfoq [For "The Weekly Times Annual"] URTY Brown had drifted casually into Bill Tar kalson's service, as sisting him first in the building of a house, then in fencing a bit of farm land he had purchased, and burn ing off logs and stumps in preparation for plough ing. Being used to droving and station life, Murty found this kind of work anything but congenial. But he held on, principally on account of a chronic state of bankruptcy. Then Bill got married, and went away on the river boat for the honey moon. When Murtjr emerged from the excitement of the event he dis covered that he had a new mate. He had a hazy idea that Bill had put him on to assist in the heavy work of levering logs and grubbing and splitting, but he wouldn't condescend to ask. Murty had a little pride about him. To admit his ignorance of the engagement would be to lower his status on the plantation, if it didn't lead the stranger to regard himself as head man. He did seek enlighten ment from the ...
