ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached hia fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's (light and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival thRt Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his pursuers ...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, There are few people responsible for more harm Hi the world than the thoughtless person; and his plea, when the damage is (lone, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," is poor eonsolation to those who have suffered from liis thoughtless act. When, forty years nnd more ago, an old woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may be sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The tire which was started by that over-turned lamp in the Chicago cow-shed swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to cha'rred ruins three and a-lialf square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings. were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to tile extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there are...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

III. Meanwhile there was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what lie meant to do, and slie listened without protest. Ills own motor-car would bo waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launch would take them ashore. "They know 1110 here," lie said, "there will bo 110 (rouble. If your old sailornian lias not been able to lioid his tongue, 1 do not suppose the cackle of it has travelled so far. We shall go aslioro when it is dark ami travel all night to Aborfeldy. it will be time enough when we get there for my sister and mo to decide what Is the best thing to be done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be ablo to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning lie understood.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Cliris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now bo sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastlo in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied tho worst threats of tho law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show, her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a month must pass be fore the trustees would send her tho miserable pittance ...

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, In the same block, possiBIy In the same building, can 'be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine hair-brush was the first Instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's linlr pen dipped In ink. Next door probably Is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and- in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came Into use for writing jin (the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened-ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, aiid its use spread from ...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Toq many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom h;:ve occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a feast, hut feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple nre always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described as...

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PE.MBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock ftnd Co. Ltd., Lond. and Mclb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER v. The Voya-jo, I. The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and discusse.i 5t' in awesome tones above the very -cabin where Leila watched Desdy iu Siis heavy sleep. This was a rare blow to tliem, for they perceived immediately that it meant the end of their holiday. Far from being misogynists, in- spite of the philosopher, they hnd throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hi:-3h Donald himself to be a man who would never marry. His aversion to the sex hnd become a by-word among them, and yet here was the very truth. "A girl aboard the Chxlsta'bel!" But for the light in the cabin, which was unoccupied yes terday, they never would have be lieved it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to tliem, and his tones...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914

CHAPTER VI. At Abcrfcldy Castle. I. They put inlo Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just wlint lie intended to do, and she had lieard him without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the north east kept them to the saloon and to the Archdeacon's humors. Tiie child alone revelled in the uncertainties ot the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and that fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Alien Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and his knowledge of domestic juri:»piudei;ce intruded hap pily upon this cilrious situation. Of Leila he fornled a trilly clerical opiil ioit. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a little wild. It was quite possible that this beautiful siren they had trapped at Newcastle was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted' to his own presence and to the majesty of th...

Not so the Archdeacon: he had de cided to Remain. Closeted with Hugh In the private cabin he forgot even "to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell -me, my dear fellow, that yon propose to take her iinto Scotland?" he asked. 'Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," lv; said; "if we did that always, life "would he rather easier. Just consider, 'George, how much that we do Is the 'result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the best of women, and that s' e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask ray sister to take up her case. After that it wili be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of it "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though they were oil upon ...
