THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 December 1914
THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. Tliero are several groat divisions in the army of mankind, with innumer able sub-divisions. Roughly spoaking, wo may call them the unhappy, the apathetic, tho cynical, and the coura geous, or those who daro to faeo fate with a smile. If we may judge by appearances, the lirst division is far and away the larg est. It is astonishing, as we walk the streets, ride in the cars, or look from our windows upon the passing crowds, to find so many faces sober, sad or utterly devoid of life or radiancy. Chance conversations accidentally over heard, even those intended for our own ears, bear out this lugubrious testi mony. Jt is a truth which none of us eau gainsaj-, that the incidents and episodes of life are not as n rule con ducive to hilarity or happiness, if we take them at their face value. Sin gularly enough, the mass of humanity looks no more deeply into its enforced experiences, and so forfeits the rich kernel of tho hard nut. It is rather more hopeful, however, tha...

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXYIII. LORD BELGRAVE GOES TOO FAR. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 December 1914
THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXYII1. LORD BELGBAVE GOES TOO FAB. Whilst Val Beresford wan uniting to- I ?wards perdition on the bosom of the | Thames, Ida Duval was us surely drift ing anywhere but heavenward as eho strolled through the deepening shadows with Lord Belgrave by her side. She was not listening to him, not even thinking of him; her heart had sunk in deepest dejection, and her mind was fully occupied with wondering whether she hod been really an important fac tor in Boresford 's ruin. To say -good byo to a friend is always a trying pro; ceoding, especially if that friend hap pens to be the only one yau have, and he tells you that it is on yonr account that he "i» going into exile. Was he afraid for her- Tho colour deepened in her cheeks, whilst her heart boat fast, but not with love, He was very dear to her, as a truo comrade in mis fortune, but only one man had the power to star her pulses, and it waa not Beresford, nor yet her husband.

BALMATTUM. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 December 1914
BALMATTUM. Harvest is now almost concluded; is 0110 of the poorest in the history of tlio district, a good percentage being eaten oft with stock. Oats woro a com. pleto failure. Wheat y.'old is from one bag to three, as much as five bags have been stripped, but such are iso. lated eases, and on fallowed ground. Hay, from five to ten cwt. In most instances farmers will liavc suflicient grain for sowing purposes. Old residents aver that Hie present drought is the worst and severest in tho history of the settlement ot the district. Nothing is to be seen "but dried, parcl'.o.l country, resembling wind swept roads.

THE DENTIST. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 8 December 1914
THE DENTIST. He well deserves a laurel wreath, the man who tinkers with my teeth, when tlioy aro out of plum; ho plugs them ii]) with melted lead, and soothes my swelled and aching head, and heals the tortured gum. Upon his skill your com fort hangs when you have trouble with your fangs, and seldom does lio fail; his shining instrument he wags aud draws the old insurgent snags, then draws his slice of kale. No more you hear in dentist's room the shrieks of thoso who dread their doom, of tlioso whose souls are sick; the patient calm ly sits and smiles, the wliilo the den tist with his files and pincers does tho trick. TTow different in olden days! The dentist then had playful ways; lie sat upon a bench, and took your head between his knees, and, muttering. "Look pleasant, please," he plied his monkey wrench. It took six men to hold me down when he adjusted bridge and crown, or plugged a hollow fang, and travellers could hear me roar away ! upon the distant shore of Yang-tsc* kiang. B...

SEEN FROM AN OBSERVATORY. (By Old Father Time.) Yes, bat it is decidcdly different when tho romantic lover turns into a rheumatic husband. The dove of peace is flying high to get out of tho way of warring aoro planes. A poor compromise is usually better than n big lawsuit. When you and your neighbors all ogroo, 'tis tlien tho lawyer gets no fee. Tho girl with a pretty climplo sees a lot to smile at. Some of us can beat George Wash ington in one particular at least-he eouldn't tell a lie. If all work and no play maltos Jack a dull boy, then all play and 110 work makes him entirely too sharp.
