Sir Gilbert had been pointing out that ill many cases, owing to the in ability of literary men to look after themselves, publishers made far more money out of books than their authors did. The publisher remarked that what Lord ltosebery should have said was that, "It was not most books, but most authors who should bo burned." "That, may be true," retorted Sir Gilbert, "but judging from the pub lishers' share of the prollts of the au thors' labors, most of the authors were too green to be burned!"

WONDERFUL POWER OF THE WIFE. No married man over prospered in tlio true sense ot Iho word without the co-operation anil help of his wife.

Fen ley V" quavered Jlr. Topper. The vicar's penetrating eyes stared coldly at Mr. Topper, and the baffled scientist quailed before them.

CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 5 June 1914
CHAPTER I. When Mr. Topper determined upon Ilia history-making demonstration, lie took it for granted that the supply o£ specimens was unlimited. So much was this tho case that ho intended an almost fastidious choice of a thor ough-going villain; one from \vl10s2 breast every human sympathy had died, every decent motive was miss ing, every aspiration lost. The works of fiction told him of the existence of numbers of such men; no popular work was complete without the ebony hearted scoundrel. And Mr. Topper had determined that his villain must be the genuine article, as otherwise hi3 demonstration would prove no thing. "What's the use of me getting a mail who has liugering hopes of reform or who has redeeming qualities?" ho told himself sternly, "in such a man I should only succeed in awaking tlu good that was asleep in the man's mind. No, I want a thorough-paced villain." His morning post tho next day brought him, amongst tho rest, two begging letters. One was from a man with a famil...

Comfortably oil, as the phrase goes; untroubled by the cares ot' business or family, Mr. Topper beamed at the world through his rimless spectacles and passed his long hours dabbling eagerly with tho science of sociology.

FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily Handicap to Success. It is really wonderful what the ?Ijllnd can learn to do for themselves. Quite lately, a blind, deaf and dumb girl wrote to the secretary of the in stitution where she had been trained to tell her thnt ehe was staying In the country, and was greatly enjoying the games of tennis and croquet. It is well known, of course, that El len Keller is Bimilarly handicapped, yet she is one of the most learned women in the world, and Jior books are not only read in Amorica, Britain and the Colonies, but are translated Into many foreign languages.

AGRICULTURE. THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. This is what the farm manager should be:-Systematic, persistent, and methodical, but ever cheerful and hopeful.

The instant artor Alfred hud got out of the train ill Swakeleys June lion a lady had entered Mary's com partment. She %vau stout, grey-haired, and wheezy, and the first thing siio did was to shut tho windows. Alfred detested shut windows, so Mary took a hasty prowl down the corridor to see if there wore an empty compart ment into which she could move their belongings. She quickly ascertained that thero was no room elsewhere, and, sudden ly remembering that sho had left her handbag 011 the seat unprotected, hur ried back. The stout lady was stop ping down on to the platform, but apparently she was returning, for her wraps were piled up 011 the seat she had chosen. She had not a pleasing face. Mary snatched up her bag, feeling she had been rash to leave It there unguarded. "1 hope my live-pound note is safe," she thought, utterly forgetting that Alfred had taken charge of it. Sho searched for the note, naturally failed to liml it, and grew crimson with an ger and distrust. "The wretch...
