PUBLISHERS' BLUNDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
PUBLISHERS' BLUNDERS. George Meredith, as publisher's reader to a well-known firm, gave an opinion emphatically against the ac ceptance of Mrs. Henry Wood's "East Lynne." The loss caused by this mis take has been estimated at £30,000 to the publishing linn, and, presuming that they had issued her other novels, at £100,000. James Payn declined "John Inglesant," as reader lor Smith, Elder and Co., and it became a valu able literary property in the hands at Macmillan and Co. Edna Lyall's "We Two" was rejected by half-a-dozen pi bii"' ers. A publisher's reader pronounced W. Clark Russell's "Wreck of the Grosvenor" a cdtaloguo of ship's fur niture. It is the boast of Mr. Hall Caine that no novel of his has been hawked from publishing house to publishin0 house. Mr. G. R. Sims re cords that a short story of his, "A Pleasant Evening," was declined by the "Family Herald," "Chambers' Journal," and "All the Year Round." Sir Rider Haggard's "Dawn" was de clined by five or six publishers. When N...

LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
LOVE CfF LITIGATION. A mania for going >o law seems to possess u) inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our eoiirls lengthen with every term, anil judges regard with dismay tlic frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that tlip im mense ntimli, of young lawyers turned loose upon the community evry year has some thing to ilo with the tremendous impulse thai. lias heen g' en to litigation within the last fev: yais. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have-heen known to incite idle hoys lo break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a deni:i:iu for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lotisly, perliaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged 011 to throw stones :Ct each other by newly-Hedged counsellors, who hope to profit by the damage.

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
To the Editor. , oir,—in low down despicable contro versy, for ways that are mean, and impu tations that are contemptible, your con tributor, ." A Straggler but a' Wide Awake," leads the. way. Ho misstates the case of Elijah. He quotes from the Old Testament and omits the teaching which is inculcated in it. He refers to tho Now Testament, playing upon a state ment about the Son of Man. He is in fitting company in the thirty second and thirty-third lines of his effusion, when ho uses almost the same words as Judas used once, in which we find the comment St. John 12-6. To what " plans and schemes carried on for religious purposes" does he allude? Church committees havo to pay accounts for church building, rates, in surance, lighting, cleaning, printing, re | pairs, etc., and because men such as he aro too mean spirited to give direct their legitimate share, does he blame them for taking another course of raising what is necessary'? Anothor contemptiblo piece is reference to " minister...

Sir,—Many and varied have been the j reasons given by your correspondents as to "Why People do not go to Church." I The Church would indeed bo a piebald, i ridiculous kind of thing if moulded ac- j cording to tho opinions and beliefs of your various correspondents. Some of your correspondents seem to bo sincere, but! many of them seem to bo merely canting hyprocites with unsatisfactory excuses for their own actions, rather than sincere I men whose actions are dictatod by loyal adherence to principle, after deep con sideration, deep reflection, and sound: study. For my own part, I am firmly convinced that there are clear reasons why, people do not go to church, and this knowledge has como to mo from wido ex perience and close contact with people in | every walk of life in many localities.

Mr. P. R. MILI 3, a well-known Interstate Traveller, REPRESENTING ONE OF THE LARGEST COMMERCIAL FIRMS IN AUSTRALASIA, WRITES A REMARKABLE LETTER TO CLEMENTS TONIC LTD.. IN WHICH HE DRAWS THE PUBLIC ATTENTION TO HIS WONDERFUL RECOVERY TO HEALTH AFTER ALL MEDI CINES FAILED HIM. MR. MILES EMPHATICALLY DECLARES HE CONSIDERS THIS TONIC THE GREATEST IN THE WORLD, BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT IT DID FOR HIM AND FOR HIS SYDNEY FRIEND WHO ADVISED HIM TO TAKE IT, AND WHOM IT CURED OF RHEUMATISM AFTER HE HAD BEEN CON SIDERED INCURABLE.

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
To the Editor. Sir,—The question why people do not go to church is causing a great deal of interest, and to some no doubt unpleasant feelings. It is a most lamentable fact that a large number of people do not go to church. I think if the following plan were carried out it would solve the problem -.— Select two ministers as candidates—a Baptist and a Con gregationalist. As there would be no parly feeling amongst the people who belong to any other denomina tion, I think that either of the pro posed two would stand daylight with any of the Protestant Churches, and therefore ought to meet the wishes of the people of Berringa. Many have expressed Chuichanity and not Christianity as the cause of why peo ple do not go to chinch. Personally speaking, I am a Salvationist, aud anything which will promote tha interest of Gid's Kingdom is the only desire of my heart. Go on the same lines as a politician in regards to nominating the ministers, and 1 propose representatives from each church have ...
PAMELA'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
PAMELA'S CHOICE. i J By FRANCES BROWN. "We've been engaged for five years, j Pamela, and I'm getting tired of wait- j ing. When are you going to marry ' me?" James Dawson, a stalwart young farmer of thirty, looked frowningly at the girl who stood bare-headed be fore him in the waning light of a chill November afternoon. He spoke with irritable impatience, and the girl sigh ed as she glanced back over her shoul der at a low-lying farmstead that nest led in the valley some hundred yards away. A few minutes since she had heard her lover riding by, and had run to the gate to give him a passing greeting. "In a year's time, Jim," she said, and there was a note of appeal in her sweet, low tones as she laid a well shaped but work-coarsened hand on his arm. "1 can't leave my mother until Tina is able to take my place, and—and a year will soon pass, dear." "A year!" she echoed scornfully. "You talk of years as lightly as of weeks! Has it ever occurred to you that Eoodlands has been waiting fo...
III. Roodlands, Glawith, December 31, 1910. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
III. Roodlauds, Glawitli, December 31, 1910. Dear l'amela,—I've tried to tell you the truth many times, but 1 could not lace the look 1 knew would come in your eyes. The fact is—Tina und 1 love one another, and by the time you receive this note, which we are post ing in London, we shall be man and wife. Most people would call me a cad for throwing you over after live years' courtship, and I suppose I am; but it is better that one should suffer than that three lives should be wreck ed through a mistaken sense of hon or. Tina and I hope that some day you will forgive both of us. Yours, James Dawson. Pamela Leigh folded tlie letter with trembling bauds and, thrusting it into her bosom, sat for a long time staring blankly before her. The blow that had been dealt her was as cruel as it was unexpected; for, although she had been aware of a change in Jim's attitude ever since Tina's coming a month ago, never for one moment had she believed it pos sible that he would so heartlessly be tray ...
THE INDOMITABLE SCOT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
THE INDOMITABLE SCOT. A West Country Scot, who liad en gaged in the manufacture of a cer tain description of goods then recent ly introduced into that part o£ the conntry, found it necessary, or' con jectured it might be profitable, to establish a permanent connection with some respectable house -in London. With this design he packed up a quan tity of goods, equipped himself for the journey, and departed. Upon his arrival he made diligent inquiry as to these who were likely to prove his best customers, and accordingly pro ceeded to call upon' one of the most opulent drapers, with whom he re solved to establish a regular corre spondence. When Saunders entered the shop in question he found it crowded with customers, and the salesmen all bustling about making sales, and displaying their wares to prospective purchasers. Saunders waited what lie considered a reason able time; then in a lull of business laid down his pack, his bonnet, and staff upon uie counter, and inquired for "the head...
