CHAPTER XI. . While Slieila was happy as girlcouli be, without, as she expressed it, a care in the world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellairs. It «was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that lie never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed—as far as she could tell—to cease to exist. Bellairs was kind to her, paying lier every possible attention, "but he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it in one of his, nor did he look into her eyes with the loving-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed ivere reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone.

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the -eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind— Someone to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why Those words such comfort bring; Nor why that whisper malces cur cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We leave them far behind When someone slips aii arm around, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt ■ that soft caress— The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But il the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm around. And whispers ."Never mind."

Those of us wlio have not been pre-1 sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but for the most part from newspapers and weekly periodicals. Sheila Dauver's debut differed from that of other girls in two respects. In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her dress—which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction—was remark able, and, in the second, she wore the most magnificent pearls of any debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went off with the usual eclat, or perhaps one may say, want of eclat. The Duchess of Tewkesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered her presence, ana, without a moment's hesitation, removed the brooc...
