AN EASTERN FABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
AN EASTERN FABLE. The Suniassi had no companion in his gloomy cave save -his faithful servant Bul wunt, w'ho was the sole witness of those pious nortifications and self-tortures which were the glory of India. and. which left the Suniaesi a .mere bundle of suffering nerves and bones, a living skeleton held to gether by the discolored and lacerated skin. Far and near, the people worshiped the Suniaasi, and the diseased and miserable flocked to him for healing. A saint holy as he had never been known in the land before, which waxed proud and happy to be is dwelling-place. But as the great Haman of Persia in the lHebrew Bible was humiliated 'because Mordecai alone refused to bow 'before 'himi, so the mind of the Suniassi was troubled on account of Bul wuit, Bulwunt w'ho stayed with him in h:R cave to guard. his lifeless body when his soul left it for those brief foretastes of the joys of Swerga which were granted it by the Gods as a reward for his devo tion.

THE JOURN.rL:- OF AURA LOVEL. BY BARRY PAIN. rCOPYRIGHT.] CHAPTER I. Yesterday I got a feeling I never had before-a feeling of complete satisfaction not wanting anything to be diffeent. It was not enjoyment, for most days I think I enjoy myself. It was something more quiet. and subtle. It was a kind of glow of contentment all over me. There was no reason for it that I could find out, and it lasted from somewhere about the middle of luncheon until I fell asleep at night.

He is really an ugly man, but I think...
