A BROTHER'S LOVE By GRAiilAM IIBRO\VN, Author of "The Soul of Iuclle," "The League of the Sacred Scarab,". etc. Published by arrangement with Cassoll & Co. All Rights Reserved, CIIAPTERI VI. The Poisoned Arrows. Angus Galbraith sat down by the little stove with the words of Eric, his brother, ringing in his ears. "I love Elsie Bisset." He passed his hand across his brow as if to free himself from some op. pressive incubus, For the moment he was too stunned to think, Never for a moment did a doubt of Elsie enter his mind. She had looked him in the face and said, "Angus, I love you," and that was enough, Angus Galbraith, the silent fisher man, was a largo-souled man. Yet lihe had a nature as simple as a child's, and he would as soon have thought of doubting the word of the girl he loved as of doubting his own exist ence. And lie loved his brother with a mighty affection. To him Eric was the perfection of manhood, and lihe had seen nothing of the feet of clay. "Oh, Why did Elsi...
GREAT FAMINES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
GREAT FAMINES. Since history began there have been 350 mighty famines, each of which killed thousands, and most of which carried off people by millions. The Scriptures speak of famines in the imen of Abraham, and the story of tie steven years' famine which pro vailed when Joseph was secretary of Pharaoh's treasury is a matter of Bib lical history. Rome had its famines hundreds of years hefor? Christ, and about 300 years after Christ wheat was worth 400 pieces of silver a bushel in An tioch, and about 100 years later par outs were eating their children in Italy to keep themselves from starv ing. Great Blritain has had famines back to the earliest of her records, and about the time that the Normans cane over it is said there was such a fanmiHe' o':er the Northern country that many of the Inhabitants sold themselves for slaves, and that the fief:h of horses, dogs, cats and rats had fixed prices in the market, and soine even ate human flesh.

HERE'S TO THE HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
HERE'S TO THE HEROES. \Ve give unstinted praise,to the man Who is brave enough to die; But the man who struggles unflinch. ingly Against the currents of destiny And bears the storm of adversity We pass unnoticed by, We've plaudits and tears for him who falls, Borne down in the shock of strife; 13ut a word of cheer we neglect to say To him who plods on his dreary way And tights in silence from day to day The unseen battles of life. There's courage, I grant, required to face Grim death on the gory field, There's also courage required to meet Life's burden and sorrow; to brave defeat; To strive with evil and not retreat; To suffer and not to yield. Some moments are there in every life When the spirit longs for rest; When the heart is filled with a bleak despair, When the weight of trouble, remorse, and care, Seems really greater than we can bear, And death were a welcome guest. But we crush it down and we go our way To the duties that lie in wait, From day to day we renew the fight To ...

THE GAME OF POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
THE GAME OF POLITICS. TuL? Governor-General having replied in the negative to the Senate's request for reasons on which the double dissolution was granted, it is anticipated that arrangements for the Federal elections will be at once made and the electors given the opportunity to put an end to the conditions that have ruled during the past parliamentary term. Little or nothing has been done for the welfare of the Commonwealth, for the reason that parties have been so evenly bal anced in the Lower House, and so un evenly divided in the House of Review, that an impasse resulted. Salaries have been paid to legislators for the work of sitting down and making faces at each other.' With their tongues in their cheeks, parties have played shuttlecock with national interests, while the elec tors looked on with amazement or amusement, according to their particular moods. To those who regard present day politics as "a reasonable game for a man to play," there should be matter for interest in t...

"TROUBLE." [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
"TROUBLE," Did .you meet that trouble, that came your way With a smiling heart, and cheerful; Or hide your face from the light o' day, .With a Craven Soul, and fearful? Oh! trouble's an ounce, or trouble's a ton, Yes, trouble is just what-you make it, And it isn't the fact that you're hurt that counts, But only, "How did you take it?" You are beaten to earth, well! well! what's that? Come up with a smiling face; It's nothing against you to fall down flat, But to lie there, that's a disgrace, The harder you're thrown, the higher you bounce, Be proud of your blackened eye, For it isn't the fact that you're licked that counts, Uit "fIow did you fight, and why?" And though you be hone too he death, whllt then. If you'vo battled the best you could, If you've played your part in the world O' men, The Critic will call it "Good!" Death comes with a crawl, or he comes with a pounce, And, whether ho be slow or spry, hL' never the fact that you're dead that counts, But only "How did you die?"<...
BASEBALL. A GRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
BASEBALL. A GRADE. Northcote played St. Kilda at North cote on Saturday, and were defeated by 5 runs to 0. St. Kilda played a good game, Nelson pitching, in his best form, and proved to be the best pitcher the locals have met. Northcote-tried a new pitcher in Elliot, and he put uip a very good performance in keepinmg St. Kilda down to 5 runs. With a little practice he should develop into a fine pitcher. In the first two innings Northcote's fielding was weak, but it improved as the game progressed. Begg was the only local batsman to reach first base twice, Gibaud filled the catcher's position with credit, although he had a rather rough time in the mask. Billings took a fine catch in the outfield, and Crawley put in some fine work at third base. St. Kilda-0, 3, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1-5. Northcote-0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0-0. To-day's match is against Fitzroy at Fitzroy. Team-Begg, Billings, Bol ton, Brown, Bailey, Crawley, Elliot, Froebel, Gibaud, Yecomans, Robinson.
