Just as he was- laving the stamp care fully on the precious' envelope, however, She stopped him. 'Put it upside down,' she requested. 'Why?' he asked. 'Oh, she replied, 'that means some thing to Charlie!'' - ' And the clerk's interest vanished, as the clouds of monotony oace more gathered on his horizon.

CHAPTER H. - '. When Basil went to his room it was not with the intention of sleeping, ? for his father's disclosure had moved him deeply, \ and te was determined -to: find out how far 'his tuture might be- affected by what he tad heard, it had never been his nature to put on one side difficulties which required facing, and he was not the man to be reassured by specious arguments. There-, could be no doubt that Sir Ste phen firmly believed that their family was enrsed with this fierce passion, whicn might iie .dormant for years, but which was' liable to spring into being without a momehtfs. warning. And -yet Basil could never remember Having, seen his fat-her lose ' control' of himself. To 'all appear ance he was a man of cairn, even temper, and the last person who might be liable to a sudden lust for blood: It was that fact that caused Basil to take the matter more seriously, for' he himself had never been stirred by any deep anger, and. had never raised bis. hand' with the intenti...

THE HAH WHO SATES BABIES. HIS CURE BT SEA WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

THE MAN WHO SAVES BABIES. IIS CURE BT SEI WBBH. One summer day a poor woman with a tiny child in her arms— a poor, white faced little creature almost at the point of death— arrived at the Montparnasse Station, in Paris, and immediately began asking for 'the man who raves babies.' And, strange as it may Beein, every one knew whom she meant. 'Ah, ah,' they said, 'she means, without doubt, that good M. Quinton,' and she was directed to the Sea-water Dispensary dose by. There, by injections of sea water, her baby was soon saved. It is' not quite a year since the 'Daily Mail' (says a writer in that paper) published an article about the wonderful results of M. Rene Quintan's treatment. Shortly afterwards, through the initiative of Dr. George Bur ford and the generosity of Mr. Otto. Beit, a dispensary similar to me two in Paris was opened in Poland street, Soho. The first year's working has given excellent re sulto. At the outset the medical pro fession naturally opposed the hew treat ment...

BROWNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912

BROWNING. Browning was a mystic of the mystics. His plummet dipped deepest into the pro- fundities of immensity and infinitude, of good and evil, life and death, here and   hereafter. An iconoclast, he yet had a gospel— a vision beautiful. He saw the world's misery, and still believed in good- ness. He was no stranger to modern science and criticism, and then he dared to indentify the deity with suffering; in- deed, he proclaimed the miracle perpetual of incarnation — God in every man, and he was ready in this term and that of the largest charity to explain sinners and out- casts and pharisees, and apologise for shams and humbugs. He never, however, confounded right and wrong, or neutral- ised good and evil, but he dwelt in the conviction that truth would ultimately prevail. His magnificent optimism — 'God's in the heavens, all's right on the earth" — was based on the view that life is a probation, and that man must be estimated not by what he is, but what he may be.

HYDE , PARK ESTATE. 'At -Hyde. Park Estate, 'the new garden suburb; recently subdivided by Messrs. Person &. Wilcox, a number of fine resi dences have been erected, very much re sembung in design, the charming homes so much admired at Mosman's Bay and other residential suburbs of Sydney.'

We (understand that the proprietors rxe ' not selling any of the land, but intend to build about 40 . superior homes on the estate, there by effectually preventing any poor houses, business premises, or any other building derogatorjr to the general appearance being' built. If this intention is car ried' out Hyde Park Estate must un doubtedly become one of the most desir able-residential spots in the environs of the city, and will reflect much credit on the 'proprietors.

Bince the time— not bo long ago— that Margaret Cooper broke down all the con ventialities of the prosaic concert platform, and introduced the English nubhc to her inimitable and delightful song pictures at the piano her career has been one me teoric success. Her name and fame have Jong been established in London and khroad, and now Australia, is fortunate enough to hear her at the very zenith of her popularity. The peculiar form of en tertainment known as 'songs at the piano,' was purely a male creation, and tnany distinguished artists have made for themselves ' lasting names in the mono logue form of song and story.

issulies art the Goodwood A glorious sunshine, a bine sky, a green lawn, dotted with bright dresses, an eagrer crowd, and a line of beautiful thoroughbreds facing the barrier — Morphettville on Goodwood Day. It is an exciting moment when the horses are waiting to be off, and still more exciting when they race up the straight to the finish. The pleas ures of a race day are not confined to the events themselves. All Adelaide seemed to be there, on enjoyment bent. The picturesqne racecourse was certainly an ideal place for a pleasant afternoon's outing. These big meet ings are a red-letter day as far as the ladies are concerned. They meet their friends, wear their glad-rags, stroll about the lawns, and even plange desperately- on the special tote thoughtfully provided by the dub to enable them to make moderate five shilling bets.
