ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his pursuers ...

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS •Damages of £500 for breach of pro mise are claimed by Miss Emma Ma haney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. John Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a Civil War veteran, in a suit she lias-brought at Paterson, New Jersey. Miss Malianey says that the last she saw of lier fiance was in 1S63 as he was leaving for the Civil War. She never married, believing that some day the sweetheart of her youthful days would return to claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting with him, she was overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf, 'who informed her that he had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the spinster alleges the vet eran wooed her with ail the ardor which characterised him before the •war, and finally he proposed mar riage. She made all the preparatiohs for the ceremony at great expense. When everything iwas ready Sir. Wolf wrote saying that the marriage could never take place. Miss Mahaney bases her cla...

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, possujly in the same building, can toe found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine hair-brush was the flrBt Instrument used by man -for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's hair pen dipped in Ink. Next door probably Is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came into use for writing )in |the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, and Its use spread from th...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. n Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need, not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may 'be a feast, •but feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it diflicnlt to keep his head aibove water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling In or out of US. j Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. ^ About two-thirds of the- average man's laughter is inspired by hfs own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now de...

The Voyaj*. r The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and discussed it in awesome tones above the very cabin where Leila watched Desdy In his heavy sleep. This was a rare blow to thetn, for they perceived immediately that it meant the end of their holiday. Par from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they, had throughout the whole of the cruise Ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hugh Donald'himself to he a i)i.'i 11 who would never marry. His aversion to the 6ex had become a - 3y-word among them, and yet here was the very truth.

J". Meanwhile there* was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all Its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what he meant , to do, and she listened without protest. • His own ■ motor car would be waiting for them at Stran raer; his own launch would take them ashore.-. "They know me here," he said, "there will be no trouble. If your old sailorman has not been able to hold his tongue, I do not suppose the cackle of it has travelled so far. We shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be - time enough when we get there J for my sister and me to decide what is the best thing to be done." She looked up quickly at the word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," he said, "Ueraldine is one of the best little women, in the world; she doesn't always seem to ne, but that's her manner.

Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Chris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had beep to save the child from the ma chinations of thosfe whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an Immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with th^.i trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a month must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pittance...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. They put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told , her by that time just what ..he intended to do, and she had Ward iiim without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the north east kept them to the saloon and to the Archdeacon's humors. The- child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and tnat .fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of AJlsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and ' his knowledge of domestic juri3p1uder.ce intruded hap pily upon this curioiis situation. Of Leila he formed a truly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a little wild. It was quite possible | that this (beautiful siren' they had trapped at Newcastle was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of ...

"1 am trusting to my judgment," h'! said: "if we did that always, life would he rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do Is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. 1 am trusting to an instinct which says that 1 have met one of the best of women, and that s' e has need of :ne. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and 1 shall ask my sister to take up her case.
