WINTER IN ARCADY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it months or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall), And our wand'ring footsteps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall? When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly sobbing through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the ibottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; ('Tis the summer-house a-cruising up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the hours 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing .'by the beam). But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morrow we'll be wading To the city through the pathway at the bottom ...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

CHAPTER III. Before Peter Bellairs left Bloem fontein he had a long interview with the lawyers, Messrs. Krux and Kru ger. They gave liim ai copy of part of the will, which satisfied him that his friend 1 ad dealt fairly 'by him. A the rest of the money, which Paul Danvers called his pile, was secured for the maintenance of Sheila. It was to be hers without let or hindrance. It was to be hers if she married even at seventeen, and it "was to be hers if at the age of. twenty-one she were still unmarried. But the sum of Paul Danvers' wealth was not mentioned. Peter ask ed Mr. Kruger what it amounted to, and to hjs astonishment was told that this was a secret which would not foe revealed until the money was hand ed over to the young heiress. All Kruger would permit himself to say was this: "It is a large sum—a very large sum, but I am not allowed to mention the amount. That was one of my client's strictest injunctions. You may take it for granted, however, Mr. Bellairs, that your little ...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in. a tiny villa in South Kensington. Even the smallest villars are expensive In that part of the world. She was a slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and ajfaintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, 'but no one could call Margaret Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was Ralph, and his mother, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did come into her head and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. She was very poor, very poor in deed, and did not like poverty. She was considered by her neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. She was still young, and when, some time ago, she lia'l met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-eyed...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

II. Blakely had departed for England weeks ago, with all the necessary documents for the prosecution of his big scheme in his possession, and Macdonald, now with plenty of fnnds in hand, had thrown himself heart and soul into the task of developing the mine. He had engaged as his chief assistant a smart young engineer named Forrest, fresh from a famous mining school at home, whose lack of practical experience was fully com pensated for in John's eyes by a boundless enthusiasm, which he had the faculty of imparting to the miners under his charge. So far, however, their united efforts at locating the reef had ibeen .no more successful than Macdonald's previous ones. They had bored and tunnelled in various direc tions from the main shaft, and al though no hint of the precious ore had been revealed, at' least the pass ages, under Forrest's skilful guidance, were masterpieces of underground construction. The lad -was justly proud of them. Blakeley'Cabled the news of his ar rival in L"5lf...

John Macdonald's Triumph. I. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

John Macdonald's Triumph. Within the ramshackle hut that was used as the office of Woolamuck Gold Jline two men sat facing each other across a plain deal table, upon which stood a half-filled .bottle of whisky anil two glasses. The men were an ■incongruous pair. John Macdonald, the owner ot the mine, was a hard-bitten angular, clear-eyed Scot of about thirty-five, clad in earth-stained mole skins, patched here and there with all sorts and shades of odd material, making a tout ensemble of gaudy col or that would, perhaps, have appealed to an. artist's fancy, though it would certainly have been rejected with dis dain by a self-respecting tramp. file other man seemed a decade old- I er of a somewhat .flabby stoutness, U:,iS ,attired the immaculate while duck and Panama hat favored of tue opulent tourist In the sub tropics.

Deafening. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

Deafening. The youth was in danger of drifting into bad courses, when one of the noble people who interest themselves in such cases persuaded him to accept employment on a farm.- Alas! a week later the lad reappeared in his old haunts. "What, James!" exclaimed his bene factor, reproachfully, "back again? Why didn't you stay on the farm?" "I couldn't stand the country, sir," answered the bred-and-born gutter snipe. "Too quiet for ye—eh?" "Quiet, not 'arf; much too noisy," cried James. "Why, crikey, sir, it was fair deafenin'. Wot wi* the row of the birds in the daytime, and the noise of the silence at night, I very near went off my 'ead."

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER I. . "Is that you, Peter?" ' T&® eyes of Paul Danvers were raised with difficulty, his breath was coming fast, he looked through the dim shadow o£ death at Peter Bel lairs, the friend o£ his life. "You have come. You are good," said Paul, and he smiled faintly as he moved one very thin hand until it touched the hand, firm, brown and strong, of his comrade. "I was the lucky one, in one sense," he added after a pause. "We both made up our minds to be rich, but somehow I got the gold and—you?" "I am a poor man still," answered I'd er Bellairs. "Well, never mind, never mind," said Paul. "You are not dying in > your youth and I am. I have made my Pile.

Since Macdonald left the mine a brief weekly cablegram had arrived at the office, reporting the progress chat had beeli made, but indicating nothing calculated to cheer the hearts ot BixnrolioidorB. TUo latest one had been received five days preceding Macdonald's appearance in London, aud he had immediately wired hack to Forrest for further news. Three days after the spurt in the market there was still no reply to his mess age. He was beginning to despond, and said s to Emma; but she bad somehow developed a profound and cheerful optimism regarding the mine's future. "I'm perfectly sure, Mr. Macdon ald," she said, "that it will come all right before long. I know it will." "1 'believed it once, too; but at that time I had only my own little "wor ries to shoulder.

Next .day tho market Iri Woola* mucks experienced some thrilling hours. At ten o'clock a 2/- bid pro duced a thousand shares, which were instantly absorbed. A few odd lots followed at the same figure. Then came a pause. Two-and-threepence railed to uncover more than fifty shares, but 2/6 brought out five hun dred. Then the fun commenced. It was known that Blakeley had vanish ed, and that circumstances had satis fled the market that Woolamucks, as speculative counters, were dead aa doornails. All 6orts of rumors were Hying around, but as yet the unknown buyer's identity had not been dis closed. Shrewd dealers argued that, whoever he might be, he waB not out for mere frolic. There wbb too much steady, dogged persistence about tha buying for that, and here and there they, too, 'began to nibble. By noon the quotation had risen to 5/3, eell ers, and every parcel was instantly snapped up. In the office at Cheapside the au thor of all the commotion sat quietly by Emma's sice, with pencil a...

In Perth, Macdonald found his rears amply confirmed, so to London he went, angry with himself that he had been so easily hoodwinked, ibut grimly determined to bring Blakeley to book. Dunns' the voyage he gained much useful knowledge of mining finance, ami the working of the stock markets generally, through the medium of the ship s library. So, when one fine after noon he pushed open the ornate swing door which admitted to the office of the company, he was fully primed for a stormy interview with Blakeley. He lound himself in a large, lofty apart ment, furnished with highly-polished and obviously expensive office fittings. la his left was a glass-panelled" door, labelled 'Private," doubtless the'en trance to Blakeley'e sanctum. The sole occupant of the room was a young lady, dressed neatly in blaclt, who was seated at a table with a typewriter in front of her and a tele phone-receiver at her eibow. At John's entrance she laid aside a news paper she had been reading and re garded him ...

TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. Tliere is a mode o£ using hot wa ter, which is an exceedingly valuable one, according to the late Sir Hen ry Thompson in "Diet in Relation to Ago and Activity." It is the habit ot taking a iiot foot-bath every night before going to bed, for about ten or Lwelve minutes as hot as it can be borne. The effect of this 011 the feet, which should be immersed over the ankle, is to fill their vessels with blood— rendered apparent by their deep red color—and this affords relief, by withdrawing it from the brain.

BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [ It has been often asserted by those who know that scarcely one royal lady iu Europe is really well dressed. Some of the younger royalties wear dresses too old for their years, and some of the older garb themselves in a fashion that is too young. The Empress of Germany is the best-dressed woman on a European throne, bne does not buy her dresses in Paris, 'but in Berlin, London aad Vienna. Counting every item, the Kaiserin spends about £2000 a year on dress. The Queen of Holland is said to be the worst-dressed sove reign. In spite of this, she manages to spend about twice as much on her clothes as does Queen Mary. The former spends about £4000 a year, whilst the latter spends, on an aver age, about £2000. Queen Wilhelmina is accused of showing very bad taste in the choice of her frocks and hats. However, she has some excuse, for in loyalty to her own country she only e ploys Dutch dressmakers, and who ever heard of a noted Dutch modiste? The costumes and hats o...

STRANGE HONEYMOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

STRANGE HONEYMOONS. Surely one of the strangest was I that of an American couple who, in I June of last year, set out from New York harbor on a honeymoon trip to the Bermuda Islands in a tiny "cockle-' shell" boat some 12ft. long by 3ft. broad. No less thrilling a honeymoon ex perience was that of a Mr. and Mrs. Edgar, who were married in Peking in the Legation chapel, oil the day preceding that on which the Boxer riots broke out, and who, perforce, had to spend the first few weeks of their married life prisoners ill the in vested city, witnessing many of the horrors of the rebellion, and going in daily fear of assassination. Another couple 011 the Continent, immediately after the marriage knot was tied, started off by balloon for England. Leaving. Paris at four o'clock in the afternoon, they man aged to land across the Chan nel the following morning, after a somewhat exciting time among the clouds.

II. 26 Argyle Mansions, Battersea. August 2nd, 1910. Dear Betty,—William, Alt and I think it only right that you should know about father and mother. The farm's been doing very badly of late, and they can't keep up the interest on the mortgage. I'm very much afraid it will mean the workhouse for them unless you can afford to do something really substantial. If so, you'd better meet us at Rosedale Farm to-morrow afternoon at five o'clock. If you're not there I shall take it you're not willing, but I may aa well tell you than I can do nothing to help the old people, and I expect Prudence keeps a tight hold on Wil liam's money, and I don't see what Alf can do; so that you seem to be the only hope. And as, judging by all accounts, you must be coining money, I hope you'll do your duty. We've seen very little of one another, you and I, of late years, but I think you know what a strong objection poor Bert always had to play-actresses, and it was only natural I should side with bim.

The friend was rich and ibenevolent, land his means were put in frequent requisition for purposes of local char | ity or usefulness. The townspople wanted to rebuild their parish church and a committee was appointed to raise funds. It was agreed that the Quaker could not be asked to sub scribe towards an object so contrary to his principles; ibut then, on the other hand, so true a friend to the town might take it amiss if he "were not at least consulted on a matter of such general interest. So one of their number went and explained to him their project the old church was to be removed, and such and such steps -taken towards the construction cf a new one. "Thee' wast right," sald'tho' Quak er, "In supposing that my principles would not allow me to assist in buiM ing a church. But didst thee not' say something about pulling down a church?
