Sheila Danvers' gay season did not end a day too soon. The weather was very sultry, and the girl's pretty rounded cheeks, never highly colored, became paler and paler. She longed for the country; she pined to see Dearrua again, and, above all, she wanted to be in the hour'y ami dailv presence of Shamus O'Doyle. By Bellairs' request, his wife told Sheila nothing of her intended visit to Melbourne, and the girl naturally supp sed t'..at Aunt Margaret was go ing for a short time to Sunnyside un til Uncle Peter was able to take his holiday. Little did she guess what Jad actually taken place, and Mrs. Bellairs, notwithstanding that queer mingling of pain aud rejoicing which lilled lier heart, did not dare to tell her.

PUZZLING TRANSACTION. Xow am! atrain one comes across a problem which is decidedly puzzling. Here is one which may cause some of our readers to wonder why sucli an innocent-looking transaction should be so difficult to explain. It is the custom of ten employes at a certain firm to have drinks all round on the understanding that each man on pay-day before separating, always has to stand a round of twopenny drinks or twopenny smokes. For con venience. they at first separatee! into parties of five, which meant that the. members of each party spent lOd. eacli oil drinks or smokes, tho total for each party thus being -1/2, or S/4 altogether. On one occasion, however, the ten men divided into one party of six and one of four, with the result' that the six c> ponded 6/-1/- each-while tho cost to the four was 2/8-8d. each making a total o£ 8/Sv

CRETA HUNGERFORD'S SACRIFICE. By Mildred Relphe. If ever a girl's hair could be de scribed as lier crowning glory, it was so in the case o£ Greta Hungerford.

It waved .jlf from her broad, low forehead it heavy, shining masses, and was fifth . ered into a great silken mass at the back of her graceful little head, the thick coils wound in and about until it covered it from the crown to the nape of the slender neck. This perfect June afternoon the brilliant sunbeams stole warmb" through the open window of the cosy sitting-room, and burnished into n golden glory Greta's magnificent tresses as she stood before her you us sister, Madge, engaged in animate', discussion.

MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLE [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914

MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLE By P. Beaufoy. Harold Ingram was not very popu lar at the office in Redfriars-strect, K.C.'. Ho was quite an excellent young follow, but lie had a certain shyness and reserve which the other men mis took for what is called "stand-offish ness." In the E.C. district, as in other regions, young men are apt to be su perficial, and the office staff at 27 Red friars-street, was no exception to the rule. They called him "Hamlet," because he was addicted to the reading of Shakespeare in his luncheon-hour, and also because ho possessed a certain melancholy aspect which the 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 Pargi ter to his clium 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 hei" laughed the other. "...
