AT THE PRICE OF HIS HAPPiiN£iS. By HARRY STONE. Derrick Hardane flung open tha door, and entered the room in his usual boisterous manner. "Hallo, Gilbert!" he cried. I won dered if you were still here. Coming along yet?" With a furtive and shifty look in his eyes, Gilbert Dexter rose to his feet, and stood backing against the desk, in an attitude which suggested a wild animal at bay. His hand fumb led about among the papers as he fev erishly tried to cover up something which lay there. "M-no," he stammered. "I'm busy— I'm busy.' Hardane strode towards him with a look of astonishment and concern on his frank countenance. -\Vliy, what's up, old chap?" he asked, sobering suddenly. "You look as if you'd seen a ghost." As he came nearer, Dexter's eyes , were riveted on him with a strained, unnatural fierceness. "I'm all right," he snapped out be tween his set teeth. "You don't look it, at any rate," re plied Hardane. I tell you I'm all right," retorted Dexter, stubbornly. For some moment...

II. Derrick Hardane, tanned and hard ened under sunlit skies, toiled up the long staircase of a block of L.C.C. dwellings near the Tate Gallery. For weeks he had been making unsuccess ful inquiries, and he feared that his present quest would prove equally fruitless. "This must be the flat," he reflected, as lie knocked at the door of a flat. Alter a long interval the door was opeued, and a decrepit old man appear ed. Derrick stared at him in astonish ment. The change in him in the seven years since the last meeting was as tounding.

CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914
CYCLING. There is a tendency towards special refinement in car equipment, main ly designed to save the owner-driver time aud labour. We have self starters, self-infiators, and electric light sets, all of which increase the price of production, and consequent ly the retail pi ice, and also add peiiou&ly to the weight, thus increas ing tyre wear, petrol consumption, and the wear ilnd tear of the car generally. No doubt in the case of those who are generously endowed with thin woil 1's goods these luxu ries are advisable ; but in the case of the man to whom economy is of importance, tln-y might easily be dispensed with. There is one re finement, however, that all motor ists are looking forward to, and would be willing to pay for, and t.hat is the automatic, change speed gear. Comparati vi ly few motorists change gear piri'ectly; practically all beginners do damage before they have learned the art. It is always more or less a matter of anxiety when touring in hsl y districts, fo...
