Confessions of a Coiner. SOME THRILLS IN THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
Confessions of a Coiner. SOME THRILLS IN" THE GAME. Every coiner becomes a. convict. Put that down as absolute certain. I've just done my five years' penal. You're certain to be lagged. The game isn't worth the candle, and I've done with it. The profits are enormous, but so are the risks. Forty pounds a week I made for tw'o months. Easy come, easy go. And then five years inside the big gates ! Never again. How did I make my coins? I'll tell j'ou something—but not ail about it. I don't want you to try the game on. You might hav« a short or a long run, but as sure as night follows day, you'd find your self in the dock. The first requisite is a coin of an old date, but not worn. I've given ten shillings—good ones—for a half crown that had been lying in a drawer for a dozen years. 1 gave a woman the same amount—in bad money—for a coin mounted as a brooch. Coiners never make now coins. Tradesmen will look suspi ciously - at a genuine new five-shil ling piece, but a counterfeit, dated, sa...

FEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 24 July 1914
F E A R 1 A large majority ef men and wo men, especially among- the uneducat ed, know very little about apprehen sion in nnv form. They feel it sel dom and forget it soon. They do not even fear death so long as it comes to them in bed. We arc continually told nowadays that th® place of the poor is out of the sun. Possibly this is true, but on this very account the darkest shadow's are not seen by them. For thinking men and women, however, apprehension does darken life—more than most of thein care to say. It begins early, often with the awakening of the memory, and they are never entirely freo of it. The amount of fear which besets many of us out of all proportion to the amount of misfortune which wo have had to endure, or even to that which in our rational mo ments we expect.

meshes! fate. O R, THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS. ( By Hedley Richards, Author of "Thf Mine Master's Heir," "Time, the Avenger," etc., etc. PART r. CHAPTER m A PIECE OF IVORY. Dr. Fitzpatrick had dine3, and he was seated over the fire enjoying a pipe. All his ill-temper had vanished; a good, dinner had made him look more hopefully on his chances of win ning Meg for his own. Later he would have to visit a patient, who was seriously ill.; but this interval was his own, in which to dream of the girl he loved, and it was with some annoyance he turned his head when there was a tap on the door, and the parlourmaid informed him that Miss Morris wished to see him. But ths girl had scarcely uttered the words when Thercse Morris pushed past her into the room, in time to bear Fitzpatrick's muttered "Con found her I" Then he recovered him self, and advancing held out his hand, saying : "Good evening, Miss Morris, Will you sit here ?" and he drew a low chair forward. J "I didn't come to pay a c...

CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
CHAPTER XIII. A CASE OF BARTER. Joshua Hetherington sat quite still, looking, with blanched face at the man opposite to him, whose ut terance had come like an avalanche, bringing1, that past, which had seem ed so far away, so securely buried, back to him, and revealing in all its baldness the crime he had commit ted. "I know all about the blue dia monds," repeated Fitzpatrick. For a moment longer there was silence, the two men sat and looked at ea-ch other, and as he gazed at his companion Hetherington realised that he was a man whose silence coukl be bought, and the thought braced him up, so that his voice never faltered as he said : "What do you kraow about the blue diamonds ?" Fitzpatrick looked at him admir ingly. He admired pluck, and this" man was showing it in the face of a great danger. Yes, he was showing pluck and a business capacity. One thing was certain—Mr. Hetherington did not mean to give himself away, and lie would have to be careful or he would be outwitted. "I know...

CHAPTER XIV. PAYING THE PRICE OF HER FATHER'S SIN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
CHAPTER XIV. FATING THE PRICE OF HER I FATHER'S SIN. A couple of "weeks elapsed ; then one afternoon Fitzpatrick went up to the Hall and told Hetherington that it was about time his daugh ter was told he wished to marry her. "You can say that I've more money than I gave people the im pression of having — quite a decent little fortune," said the doctor, with a slight sneer, as he left the room ; and Josh, who hated to feel that he was in any man's power, felt that he would like to kill him, but as there was no alternative, he decided to speak to Pat that evening. Accordingly, after dinner, wfieh he entered the drawing room, he was glad to find his wife was not there ; but knowing she might return any minute, he told Patricia i,hat he wished to speak to her in the li brary. Wondering what he had to say the girl followed him there, and when her father had shut the door, he came and sat down opposite to her, sajing, in a voice that was g.entler than usual : "Patricia, I have received an...
ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 31 July 1914
ARB YOU LEFT-HANDED ? ! Why. don't you make more use of your left hand ? It has been estimated that 97 per cent, of the English-speaking people are right-handed when they grow up. ' Seventeen out of every hundred are born right-handed, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any in clination to use one hand more than the other, and, therefore, become right-handed owing to influences brought to bear on them during their childhood days. It is impossible to calculate how much men lose by neglecting, their left hands. Formerly — in primitive times, that is to say—everyone was ambidextrous ; and the sooner people 'become ambidextrous again the bet ter. I In Japan, for many years past, soldiers and schoolboys have been . taught to use both hands. And this ! wise example is now being followed i in Germany.

Selling Old Guns. ♦ Huge profits and a spico of dan ger are the, chief attractions of gun-running. • A market for the arms' and ammunition that important countries • discard as obsolete can be found in partly-civilised districts and amongst rebel societies.

LUMINOSITIES. I There arc always times when we wish we could see something; which the darkness hides.
