MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLE [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 3 July 1914
MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLE i By P. Beaufoy. Harold Ingram was not very popu lar at tlio olllce in Kcdfriars-street, W.C. He was quite an excellent young fellow, but lie had a curtain shyness and reserve which the other men mis took for what is called "stand-ollish noss." In the li.C. district, as in other regions, young men are apt to be su perficial, ami the oflice staff at 11 Kcd friars-strect, was no exception to the rule. They called him "Hamlet," because lie was addicted to the reading of Shakespeare in his luncheon-hour, ami also becausc he possessed a certain melancholy aspect which Hie name suited. It must be said for Ingram that he 'bore the chaff of his associ ates with perfect good humor, and did not seem to mind much. "Have you heard the latest about Hamlet?" said young Charlie Pargl ter to his chum Harris, on a certain afternoon in early spring, as they sat over their dominoes in a city cafe. "It is rather funny." "Not been seen at a music-hall, has he.'' laughed the other. ...

This Is in spito ot tho In crease in sheep values and u gonoral disorganisation o[ trade through In dustrial dllferoncoa. That tho trado in tro7.cn meat will 80 011 improving is pretty curtain, for tlio reason that other markets besides London aro awakening to the fact that Australian frozen meat is o£ the quality to build up anil maintain trade. America, by reason of her new tariff should, In tho near future, be a very valuablo ad junct to tho London market. I'crliaps one reason for the buoyancy of tho market and tho promising expauaion of trade is I lie increasing application of frozen meat both ill Jingland aud on tho Continent. As regards tho lattor market, however, a doubt exists aa to tho probable duration of profitable markets, for tho reason that vostod agrarian interests aro suro to active ly eng...
