CHAPTER XXI. The Sunrise. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 14 January 1914
CHAPTER XXI. The 8unr!se. The first glow of dawn had just touched the eastern sky when Laura slipped out into the garden. She wanted to' be alone in the great sym pathetic heart of Nafure on this the first morning of her greatest happi ness. All Nature was waking to this day of all days. In the orchard, alm ond-trees stood white with snow blooms, and a stray daffodil put up its fairy head to welcome her. But it was out into the open fields beyond that Laura went,- where the igreat gum-trees and clumps of wattle, newly-crowned with their spring glory, had their way. She found a fallen log and sat down to watch the sunrise. A lamb bleated, a cow lowered in the distance, and a thrush in a neighbor ing wattle echoed a plaintive sweet note. Laura suddenly sat up. Another sound had reached her ears. A quick firm footstep was coming through the limber towards her. The next second a pair of brown hands were laid on the fence, and Richard leaped over. "Laura 1" "Dick I" Her voice came to him...
BARBARA. I. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 14 January 1914
BARBARA. Mark Tempest looked round the pretty flower-decked room, and then at the pale, proud face of a woman who stood at an open French window gazing into the sunlit garden beyond. A sense of unreality was on him. Tiie once ■ familiar room seemed strange and cold, as though merged into the emotions and feelings and personality of the woman, who Had just demanded freedom from her en gagement. "You cannot mean it, Helen. It is some hideous mistake." And Mark looked with pain-QUed eyes at the lovely profile. Helen Churton turned coldly ana lytical eyes upon him. "I do mean it," with cruel /jmphasis. "1 cannot marry a—a " "A thief," he concluded, bitterly, am mistaken." "N'o, I suppose not. But I certainly gave you, of all - people in the world, credit for believing in me. 1 see I am mistaken. A transient look, halt ;pain, half annoyance, passed over the beautiful "I have not yet said that I believe you gulity, but"—with a trace of irri tation—"cannot you see that it is im possible fo...

III. The Laurels, Albury Avenue, Chiswick, June 10, 1911. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 14 January 1914
The Laurels, Albury Avenue, Chiswick, June 10, 1911. Dear Mark,—1 am \vritins to renew our engagement and to say I'm sorry for the attitude I adopted towards you yesterday; but I think you'll agree with me that it was only natural in I he supposed circumstances. I know now who the culprit is, and I feel shamed to the earth. To think that a brother of mine should have degraded me so, and brought unjust suspicion on you 1 1 can never forgive him, anil have told him so. It was good of yau to act on Tils behalf and make things right with .Hart and Lea,, hut it was more than he de serves. 1 feel very bitter towards him for the suffering he has caused me. You will come as usual to-morrow, won't you? 1 shall be waiting yours, as ever, HELEN. Mark Tempest, in the solitude of his lodgings, read Helen's letter through once, twice, three times, and at the third perusal flung it impa tiently aside and fell into troubled thought. Why did the .letter not thrill him as a love letter from the write...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 14 January 1914
Barbara watched the Vail, athletic figure of Mark Tempest until a bend in the road hid him from sight and then turned swiftly on her brother. "It was you who stole those notes, she said, in a low, accusing voice. "You put them in Mark Tempest's coat—don't attempt to deny it, you mean, contemptible coward, you!" The young man's lace whitened. "For Heaven's sake, Barbara, don't look at me like that. T was mad with , misery. 1—1 . " "I suppose you've been losing at cards again?" she went on, relent lessly. He' gave a weary gesture or assent, and the girl's .lip curled. "I meant to put it hack," he cried, desperately. "Of course!" with biting sarcasm; "they all say that." "Don't rub it in, Babs," he implored. "1 swear 1 never thought it would come to this. I thought the luck would turn. If old Lea hadn't turned up so un expectedly 1 should have been safe for three weeks, and that would have given me time." The sirl eyed him scornfully. "Why didn't you face the music in stead of fastenin...
[?] THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 16 January 1914
90B THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. farmyard manure consists, of the solid and liquid excrements of ani mals and the litter with which these substances are mixed and absorbed. Its value for fertilising purposes de pends to a great extent upon the way in which it is handled in tin? dung stead. In this respect (says a writer in an English farm journal) its man agement too often leaves much to bo desired, and, taking the country all through, enormous quantities of valu able plant nourishment are last. The atmosphere is the chief agent which produces the decomposition of the ammonia in the manure and causes it to escape, and therefore the ; air must be shut out of the manure heap as much as possible. The freer the air can penetrate the heap the more rapid is the decomposition and consequent loss of ammonia; indeed, it may he said that a rational treat ment of the manure does not exist un less the heap is tightly compacted. "Keep it moist and tread it tight, And it will well your care le qu...

One very pretty girl said to mo, "It- seems al most a miracle to* mo that three-fourths of the bread-winners get husbands. Most of them have little or no oppor tunity to form the acquaintance of at tractive men. My ideal is a young man in ono of the professions—a young doc tor, or lawyer. I might wait until doomsday to bo introduced to such a one. "Of course," she went on. "a girl must bo too nice to flirt. The young men whom my girl friends know fall short of tlio mental picture enshrined in my heart of the man I. could love. Time rolls on, and I must take at last, for a lover, one whom I know full well . is not suited to me—or stand the chance o...
