The Power of Evil. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 September 1924

The Power of Evil. ?Y H It Av Ir;,T ., WhelQ Andy Jones was .nominated for the Position of President of the I'fardcasc Poker Club he hardly knew what was in store for him. Having imnmediately jumped into ponularity, he found the attention that wats given him, the notice that was taken of him, rather embarrassing. Did h6 go into a little restaurant for an afternoon cup of tea and a dozen curious folk would follow him in and gimlet-eye through the whole harrowing process. And so on. Wherever Andy went he was followed by the interested gaze of the multitude. Certainly he amounted to something. Presidents of l-lardcase Poker Clubs do not grow on every hush. One fatal Saturday morning, how over. Andy failed to turn up in his accustomed haunts, and a beetle browed barmaid said to one of his pals, "Where's Andy Jones this morn ing." "Haven't ye heard?" -aid this facetious youth. "Why it's all over the town. Andy arrived home last night from his country trip, gave his wife a hiding, and bla...

MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 September 1924

MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS. So much beautiful prose and verse has been written m paytnnt of homage to this sad queen that it seems "a work of supererogation" to include her in my modest series. Yet all history and romance have Iaid her the homage due to her beauty, her ac complishments, and the bitter sorrow of her short life, that 1 feel that I ought to follow in the track of my betters, however far behind. When I was a boy Mary Stewart was the radiant figure of history. Her t'agic. beautiful face seemed to light up rhe dull hours we spent over dates and lists of hopelessly uninteresting per. c'nages. She sat in her chamber at Ilolyrood dominating the whole science of history, putting in the ncce'sary rote of imagination, and making the job worth while. A science which hai! this full sweetness at its heart could not be wholly had, I thougit, and so I carried on, stuffing the dreary kings and dates into myself and acquiring what little knowledge I have of this history. I expect the lonely ...
