DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. Most writers of fiction unnecessari ly tax their imagination. If they would only Keep a scrap-book fllle.1 . with cuttings from the daily press they would never have to think out good plots or dramatic situations. John Frederick Wilson, a traveller, of Angel-road, Brixton, was married in lo97, poBslbly to celebrate the golden, jubilee, when he was only 22 years of age. In three years he had wearied of his marital responsibilities, and, according to the custom of some partB 01 Brixton, he left home one morning, and forgot to return. After eight years of single blessedness he had doubts about the joys of bachelorhood, and, recking nothing of the law relating . to bigamy, he led another lady to the altar. Meantime his first wife ha-1 been drifting down the road that leads to the police station and His Majes ty's gaols.. She was arrested on Mon-1 day for some minor offence, and tak 'en to the Kensington-road Police Sta tion. Every self-reBpecting woman in Brixton car...
"MAD GALLOP TO DISASTER." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
"MAD GALLOP TO DISASTER." "The wages of rural workers have gone up 100 per cont. in the last ten years. Their hours are often short er, for they don't begin as early. Their work is not as good. We have to pay that much more for less and worse work." This, In brief, is the opinion of Mr. W. J. Cartwright, Temora, one of the best farmers in Australia. Yet the Labor press, *pd the union agita tors who depends on strikes for a liv ing, try to drive down the throats of the community that the rural worker Is a poor, underpaid, overworked, shockingly-sweated creature! Mr. Holman, as Premier, has promised wages boards for the country. Yet, on the word of Mr. Cartwright, there is no trouble with the farm hands. Under conditions as they are, if the wages boards are forced on the coun try it will be the farmer who will be sweated and the farm hand will ride the high horse. It will bo a mad gal lup 10 disaster, agriculturally. -"Svd | ney Stock and Station Journal."

LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. Riches, whatever their charm and their value, are not a panacea for the evils or life. . . . Happiness depends on work, health, character, disposi tion, training, and a great many other things besides Income, and so far as happiness is concerned, enough monoy, or somewhat less than enough, puts us in just about as good a case to achieve ft as though wo were rich. To live our lives, to get out what is lii us, to do our share of the world's work and live brotherly with our fel lows—that is what we are here for. If riches are an Incident of that course of life, they are a good inci dent. If the chase after them lures us away from the fulfilment of our pri mary obligations to our Maker, our ncjghhsr, and ourselves, we are cer tainly losers by it, losers not less if, succeeding, we lose the Christmas out of our year, the Christmas spirit out of our lives.
THE TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
THE TRAVELLER. A reply to Rudyard Kipling's "Ho Travels Fastest Who Travols Alone," Who travels alone with I1I9 eyo on tlie heights, Though ho laughs In the daytime, oft weepa through the nights For courage goes down with the set ot tlio sun, When tho toil of the journoy is all borne by one. He speeds but to grief, though full gaily he ride, Who travels alone without Love by his side. Who travels alone, without lover or friend, But hurries from nothing, to nought at the end; Though great bo his winnings, and high bo his goal, Ho is bankrupt in wisdom, and beg gared in soul. Lifo's one gift o£ value to him is de nied Art'ho travels alone without Love at his aide. It is easy enough in this world to make haste If we llvo for that purpose; but think o£ the waste! For life Is a poem to leisurely road, Add the joy of a journey lies not in its speed. Oh! vain liis achievement, and potty his pride, Who travels alone without Love at his side.

THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with money In hand can select end purchase furniture, and any ! hands can p'i">.e said furniture around the four walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom; but there is furniture and Curnilure, furnishing and furnishing, and therein lies the philosophy we write of; not thut lnnnlmato wood has tliis of Itself, but the maker of each piece of furniture, bo It of sim ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into It, with each planing and chiselling, each Lwist and curve, tho mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as Hia eye Is artistic and delights Itself In the beautiful, so he wills the block of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chastenoss. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for tho purchaser, tho household er Is not by this assured a tastefully furnished home. A taste to fashion Is one thing, ami a taste to select and arrange another. The buye...

St. Denys was the most amazed man in Suffolk when Ills sister told him to have lils clothes packed and to take himself off from Datton. He really thought that a usually clever woman was losing her wits. "What, Minnie, but you said your self that it- was doing me a dovllish lot of good, now, didn't you?" ."You are certainly better for a few days qf sobriety, Desmond . . I think if you continue, that you may live some years longer. But I cannot have you here next week; I am ex pecting guests." "Guests—good Gotl—aren't I a guest? Do you turn me out foj strangers, Minnie?" "Exactly what I am proposing to do . . . In vory plain words, Desmond. When It Is convenient, I will sondj for you again."

II. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
II. Patty had gone to Brighton after the great misfortune, and she had the tidings there. When they told - her that she had become a rich wa rn an—one of the richest in the coun ' try—she gave way to hysterical tears, ■ and seemed to insinuate that Ileres ford had done her a wrong in dying at all. The lie which she had told about the journey to New Yorlt should have been repeated by him on his deathbed out- of simple loyalty to a woman. After all there had been no wrong, and why should not he have e done it? A woman's logic could not understand. Patty had cried for two days after Leila went to prison. Frequent quarrels with her landlady and dramatic outbursts, in which she declared that she would tear down the prison walls with her own "poor fingers," varied the monotony of tears and did her health much good. A promise to go immediately to see her "dearest darling" whom a villain had sent to gaol was not fulfilled, partly because Leila herself hated scenes and did not wish it; partl...
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." &lt;■ From the time he emigrated to Can ada, at the age of eighteen, until lie was forty-eight, the late Lord Stratli cona spent all his time at various •posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all those thirty years among the northern Indians and tlie Eskimos, Donald Smith, as he then was, hold h'mself strictly to the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civilised life and the highest ofllce in the gift of the Hud soji Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to 'be overcome. Nothing shows' this better than a story told on the Labrador while he was governor of the company. It is a rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall 'be allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a string of white garments was seen stretched across dock. The watchers were amazed; for to them the wash-line su...
CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914
CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. Hugh had a vague idea as to Mat ■Michel's reason for tlielr voyage to niiorhoure: hut. It. was very Indeflnitp and the philosopher no longer spoke about It. A brusque "Ye shall know when the time comes," was the best that could be got out of him, and even George Hedges, with a prime clerical. faculty of Interrogation, did next to nothing with such a secr».t oracle. Mat feared to disappoint li'.s friends and held his tongue. The only person on board who seemed to un derstand liim was Madame Adele. Cintra, all said and done, had been but a house' of captivity to her. A neurotic dream of love, dreamed by one who was doomed to die, had giv en place speedily to the darker liou* when she had come to understand tin tragic jest which Fate had planned for her. Taken from her homo as'by magic, now she turned wistful eyes to France again, desiring the little house by the railway, and the" friends to whom she was flesh and blood and not the Madonna of a p...
