I OM E yea« ago f"^ J more than I care * to count when I rremember tba I waa a girl of twenty at the time - circum- stances render- ed it necessary that I should spend several mouths in the heme of one of my father's sisters, who lived with her hus- band, on the outskirts of an obscure little Iowa in the North of England. Bitter as my regret was at leaving my London home, I was not naturally of a db* contented disposition, and I was honestly anxious to rrake the best of my new home ; bat I soon found that there was very little fco please or interest me in the household and surroundings in which I found myself 'placed. My aunt had never, at the best of times, been a person of particular depth of feeling or warmth of character, but the lonely, Isolated life she had led for many years had 60 dwarfed her mind and narrowed her in- terests, that it took neither of UB avery long time to discov. r that we had not a single thought or taste in common...

Modern Fiction. As Found in Spain. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899

Modern Fiction.     As Found in Spain. Contemporary Spanish writers, says Mr. D. F. Hannigan in an interesting article in the current " New Ireland Re- view," may be divided into two groups one whose views may be broadly de- scribed as Liberal, whose inspiration is direct from France ; the other of ultra-Conservative tendencies, whose dream is to restore the Spain of the past. Few of the latter class are novelists ; and, indeed, their only fiction writer of eminence is Jean Valera. After the days of Cervantes, Quevedo, and Ribera, Mr. Hannigan points out that fiction be- came a lost art in the Peninsula ; but early in the present century arose a class of romancists whom their country- men style the "Walter Scotistas," though after all they were far from being kin to the Wizard of the North. Fernán Caballero was the first of these, and the chief foreign influence to be detected in his work was that of the French roman- cists. In fact, a very great deal of mo...

CHAPTER XXXIX. A SAILOR ON LEAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899

CHAPTER XXXIX. A SAILOR ON LEAVE. Several months after the second meeting of Rodney Randolph with Basil Barton in the West Indies, the sloop-of-war to which the young officer was attached put into the harbour of Baltimore. She had been upon a long cruise, and Lieutenant Randolph, who had been constantly on sea duty for five years, bade his brother officers fare- well, and having had a leave of absence granted him tor several months, started upon his way to his home. He was a Marylander, and his home was upon the " eastern shore " of the Chesapeake, where his father owned a large plantation. The sailing-packet had already de- parted for the little port near which was the plantation of Colonel Ran- dolph, and, rather than wait for several days for the departure of the next one, Rodney Randolph deter- mined to charter a small sloop to take him and his traps over to his home. He secured a trim little vessel of twenty tons, with a negro crew, and loading her with the many souvenirs cf ot...

CHAPTER XL. THE THIRD MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899

CHAPTER XL.   THE THIRD MEETING.       The schooner seemed inclined to continue on her course up to the town without further notice of the sloop. But Lieutenant Randolph, going forward, put his hands up to his mouth to better throw the sound of voice, and hailed in stentorian tones : ' Ho, the schooner, ahoy ! Ahoy, the sloop !'   The answer came back in a deep voice that was distinctly heard. 'ls Captain Basil Barton on board?'   The lieutenant saw the officer in foll uniform start and at once level his glass upon the sloop. He at once took off his cap and waved it. In- stantly came the command to lay the schooner to, and then followed : ' Ahoy, Lieutenant Randolph !' ' Come on board, won't you ?' ' Ay, ay, sir,' was-the cheery reply. Rodney Randolph was in his un- dress uniform, anet had been readily recognised by the captain of the schooner. He at once gave the order to lay the sloop to, and was about t...

A Stone for a Throne. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899

A Stone for a Throne. The throne of Britain, splendid in its trappings of silk, velvet, and   gold-wire, lace and tassels, is simply   an old-fashioned high-backed chair. It has been in use for more than six hundred years, but its early history and the name of its maker are unknown. The wood is very hard. The back and sides were formerly painted in various colours. The seat is made of rough sand- stone. This stone, which is believed to possess talismanic powers, is 26m. in length, 17 in.. in breadth, and 19½in. in thickness. Legends are told in connection with it, but the truth probably is that it was originally used in Scotland as a coronation-stone upon which the Scottish kings were seated while undergoing the ceremonies con- nected with being crowned King of Scotland.
