*3 SLINSKFS ROMANCE. i: Ivan Slinski, bandmaster oE the Bigbeach Band, stood before the town clerk of Bigbeach in his solidly furnished, well-lighted room at the town hajl. His spare, erect figure was one of the familiar sights at this growing seaside resort, for twice a day throughout the season he con ducted his band either on the pier or at the cliffs' bandstand. "You wish to see me?" inquired the Pole, who spoke Excellent English. "Yes; pray sit down, monsieur." The town clerk leaned back and put his finger tips together. "At the meeting of the council that is to be held to-day, Monsieur Slinslti, a matter is to be debated' which, I i'ear, may affect you very materially. I thought you would prefer to hear of it from me rather than read of it in the papers." Slinski bowed. He had always found the town clerk to be a cultured and considerate gentleman.

This is a J very important occasion, you know, Meg. Now that I am settled, mother can give all her attention to your future." Meg colored sharply. "My future!" she said. "I hate the idea of anybody arranging my fu- | ture! Besides, I don't want a future just yet; I'm awfully happy as I am." i "I do believe you are!" said her sister.

Wheat and the War. AUSTRALIA'S OPPORTUNITY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 January 1915
AUSTRALIA'S OPPORTUNITY. • Under the above heading "Mr A. E. F. Richardson, Victoria's agricultural superintendent, contributed an exceed ingly interesting article to the Decem ber number of the " Journal of Agri culture." The writer proves, in a very convinc ing manner, that the war, if prolonged, must inevitably lead to a material and an unsatisfied demand in Europe for all kinds of imported food stuffs, and most particularly for wheat. If the wheat exporting countries of the world—the United States, Canada, Argentina, Australia and India—can rise to the occasion by cultivating greatly increased acreages, the shortage may possibly be made up. If, as is very probable, these countries fail to completely supply the shortage, prices must rise to a level highly profitable to the primary pro ducer in these exporting countries. Nor will prices drop immediately after the declaration of peace ; for experience of previous European wars tends to show that years elapse before normal agricultu...

"Here are your flowers, miss,'' she said; and I thought you'd like to know thai Sir John has just come in." "Oil!" .Miss Torrington threw down her pen, slipped the letter, which she was writing, into the sheets of her blotting-pad, and started to her feet. "Oh! Spence, how lovely they are!' She stooped to bury her face in the bowl of roses which the maid car ried. "Don't they seem to bring the dear old Cloisters actually before one's eyes?" "Yes, miss; we do have roses in the country, though I must say they ; make a fine show here in the shops." "Not the same thing, Spence, not a bit the same thing," said Miss Tor rington.

III [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 January 1915
III. The reward of Richard's unique powers and perseverance in his own particular line had by this time amounted to a sum on which he could reasonably allow himself a well-earn ed holiday, and circumstances, as well as inclination, counselled him to take a respite. Lately he had nearly over reached himself. In negotiating some securities he had allowed a slight clue to his identity to become known, and there was no knowing how soon tht clue might not prove his undoing. Only one little matter remained on his mind which he wished to dispose of before giving himself up to a life of luxurious idleness. The knowledge that it was Marian's home he had "cracked" that night in the suburbs, some months ago, had made him very uncomfortable; but what had caused him most mental un easiness had been, not so much the appropi'iation of some of her property, as the discovery among the haul of some little mementoes of their early wedded life. One of these was his wedding gift to her—a quaint pearl an...

From the Land of the Pyramids. A LINTON BOY WRITES HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 January 1915
ft—■———8——M from the Land of the Pyramids. A LINTON BOY WRITES HOME. Mr Stan. Wise, who is with the Australian Forces at Meaa Camp, in Egypt, has written several letters to his people at Linton, describing his sojourn in that ancient and interesting country. We have been permitted to make the following extracts:— 4' I suppose long before you get this you will have heard that we are in Egypt, so I am not to spend Christmas in cold and snow after all. We are camped right beside the Pyramids. The nearest one is about half a mile from the camp, and the Sphinx is about two miles away, They talk of the sands of the desert never growing cold, but I spent two nights oat in the open, and I nearly froze ; bnt it is warm enough in the daytime. This is Sunday evening and the first spell I have had. We have been working night and day since we landed in Alexandra on Tuesday. Tuesday night I worked all night till 2 a.m., and we had reveille at 4 a.m. We were unloading the boat. We had niggers to d...
A Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 January 1915
A Beauty. The draper's assistant was showing the lady some parasols. The assistant had a good command of language, and knew how to expatiate on , the good qualities, and show the best points of the goods. As lie picked up a parasol from a lot on the counter and opened it, he struck an attitude of admiration, and holding it up to the best light that could be had, said: "Now, there, isn't it lovely. Look at that silk. Particularly observe the quality, the anish, the general effect. Feel it. Pass your hand over it. No nonsense about that parasol, is there?" he said, as he handed it over to the lady. "Isn't ;t a beauty?" "Yes," said the lady; "that's any old one. I just kid it down there." IThe presentation of ideals and heroes from otjier ages is perhaps the most important among the educative functions of history. Another educa tive function of history is to enable the reader to comprehend the histori cal aspect of literature proper. A gifted, gentle, patient, valiant human soul, which...
SHOALS OF LOVE-LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 30 January 1915
SHOALS OF LOVE-LETTERS, In recent action for breach of pro mise of marriage it was stated in court that the defendant had written love-letters of amazing length to the plaintiff. One of these effusions had contained 110 fewer than 140 pages, and the lady who received it had to pay 1/3 excess postage on it. This is by no means a record in lengthy love letters, for during a case tried in America a few years ago a love-letter was produced in court that complete ly filled a large manuscript book con taining 300 pages. Probably the record number of love letters ever received by one woman from the same man was 3000. She was a Swiss girl, and her fiance wrote to her so often that his letters filled a large travelling trunk. Among the papers of a bachelor who died in Australia not long since 'were found 2300 love-letters, which had been written to him by six differ ent girls. The letters were contained in an elegant ivory casket, and were tied with jevelled chains in bundles of fifty. Durin...
