CHAPTER XXI. The commotion at Castle O'Doyle when Sheila did not appear can be better imagined than described. Dear ma expected her at the end* of an hour, but knowing Sheila's passion for walking, took no notice until two and even three hours had gone by. Then she gave the alarm and the entire family, including Nanny and the ser vants, got into a state o£ uproar. As to The O'Doyle, his voice sounded all over the great house. Every man, wo man and child was sent to search for Mifis Danvers, and The O'Doyle aid ed in the hunt, but there was no sign of the missing girl.

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 July 1914
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions were merely the result of accident An al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele-, scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. He found that it corroded and softened the glass, and he conceived the. idea of ! etching. He drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about the drawing. When he removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. j The process of whitening sugar • was never known until a hen. -walk-1 ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a' sugar-house.

III. Roodlauds, Glawitli, - December 31, 1910. Dear I'amela,—I've tried to tell you the truth many times, but 1 could not lace the look I knew would come in your1 eyes. The l'act is—Tina and 1 love one another, and by Lhe 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 alter live years' courtship, and I suppose 1 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 the letter with trembling hands 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 t...

THE HAND OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 July 1914
THE HAND OF FATE. | By MRS. CORNOCK. When the prison gates clanged be hind him, and Steven Grendon step ped out a free man into the April sunshine, his first coherent thought was one that ill accorded with the calm beauty of the world, waking to her livery o£ spring. A warder eon dueled him to the station, bade him a iriendly farewell with a lew kindly words, and loft him. He was a free man. He hardly realised it as the train steamed away from the little station, and he left frowning Port land, with its bleak rocks, its quar ries, its outlook over illimitable sea, behind him. The one all-pervading thought in his mitul was one of re venge. Wasn't it natural? Was lie to be blamed lor wishing witli all his heart and strength that the man who, had deliberately left him to suffer for live hideous years in a convict pri son, for u crime he had never com mitted, should be confronted with his own villainy find brought to hook? He was not even sure of the man, yet ho had suspicions. Who else...

LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 July 1914
LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania for going to law seems to possess 1.0 inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, ami judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense numb^ - of young lawyers turned loose upon the community ev^ry year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that has been g:-en to litigation within the last few years. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a demann lor the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other -by couhaciiora, -who hope to profit by the damage. However this inay be, it is quite certain that tl - proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To bo sure, the demand for all cos...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 July 1914
.' To the Editor. . Sir,—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. He misstates the case of Elijah. Ho quotes from the Old Testament and omits the teaching which is inculcated in it. He refers to the Now Tostament, playing upon a state ment about the Son of Man. He is in fitting -company in the thirty second arid thirty-third lines of his effusion, when he uses almost the samo words as Judas used once, in which wo find the comment St. John 12-6. To what " plans and schemes carried on for religious purposes" does ho allude? Church committees have to pay accounts for church building, rates, in surance, lighting, cleaning, printing, re pairs, etc., and because men such as ho are too mean spirited to givo direct their legitimate share, does liq- blame them for taking anothor course of raising what is nece83»ty ? Another contnmptiblo piece is reference to " minis...
