CHAPTER XI. A Social Function. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
CHAPTER XI. A Social Function. Gilray was amazed at his reception, but he steadied himself with, one hand upon the1 table. He must not betray hjmself before thiB stranger who so kindly toolc his presence for granted. There would be plenty of time for an explanation later on. It would be as well, too, if he followed the other man's suggestion. Ho was feeling jumpy and nervy, as well he might, when all the circumstances were taken into consideration. So he quickly helped himself to a whisky and soda and gulped it down. The generous old cordial warmed his blood and restored his (lagging spirit. Whore was he, and what was going on? That he would have to find out as quickly as possible. To try to ex plain iiis presence there by a bold recital of the plain truth was out of tlie question. His host or hostess, as the case might be, would rightly re fuse to believe liini. Tlicy would probably hand him over to the police, and then a ruinous scandal would bo caused. He had 110 desire that his ...

True, the door was open and he could hear a chatter of voices, but he had darted into the shadow that lay blaclc on one side of the cor ridor so that only a glimpse into the bedroom was afforded him. He could make out a portion of the panelled \sall with a picture or two upon it there was the outline of a Chippen dale cabinet lull of old china.

HOW AUTHORS GET IDEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
HOW AUTHORS GET IDEAS. Writing is ail art that almost any . educated person may learn—that is if they have enough industry in their make up. But it is of little use to learn composition if you have not got ideas. You must have a plot before you can write a story, and plots are tlvo grout HlumUUliK lilocli to thu aver age writer. Mr. Charles Garvice, the novelist, says that it is while shaving that most of his plots come to him. Lucky man! Most people are too intent on seeing that they do not gash their chins to think of anything else at that particu lar stage of their toilet. But, perhaps, Air. Garvice uses a safety razor. A gi\jat many people think best ill bed, and many writers sleep with a pad and pencil beside them. Nothing is more annoying than to think of some gorgeous situation just before go ing to sleep, and then find in the morn ing that the brilliant idea has faded like a dream. Mr. II. G. Wells is one of those for tunate men who brim with ideas. He is said to have a coll...
CHAPTER XII. The Fortune Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
CHAPTER XII. The Fortune Teller. Gilray smiled. After all, it was a difficult matter to be angry long with Ninon Desterre. "I know my fortune already," he said. "Most men of ambition do. We make our own, Madame Desterre. It is a mere matter of selection." "Really! But is there not a popular saying to the effect that nothing hap pens but the unexpected? Man may propose, you know, kut the power of disposing lies elsewhere. All, you are ambitious for political honors and a seat in the Cabinet. To reach that goal you must give all your time to the game and be independent of your profession. Therefore you follow the lines of the least resistance and look . for a rich wife " Gilray smiled again. He was not ! going to be drawn any more. On i the contrary, he was here to find out I what Ninon Desterre was doing, rt I amused and flattered his egregious , self-conceit to imagine that he had 1 utterly deceived the pretty French woman and that she was in blissful ignorance of the fact that he h...
How to Keep Slender. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
How to Keep Slender. The following suggestions have been I recommended to those who are de veloping a tendency to obesity— Take as many meals as you like, but always at regular hours.

Only drink between meals, and then take hot drinks, such as tea or coffee, without sugar. Avoid beers and liqueurs. At least twice a day take a sharp walk of a quarter to half an hour. Do not sleep more than seven hours. Go1', up as soon as you wake in the morning and do not Indulge in siestas.
The European War. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
He Europaan War. The big engagement between the allied forces and the Germans is de veloping. The British repulsed six distinct attacks by the Germans. The Brit ish artillery fire was more effective than the German, and their bayonet charges were superior. The Gei mao attack was repulsed. The advance of the Russian armies continues unchecked. Four big .irmit s ara in the ti.Ll, two in Germany anil two in Austria. It is quite evident the Germans intended fo giv« tlie -French and British forces a dt ath blow, and then return on the Russians.

MEDICAL MEMS. Cathing Cold. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
MEDICAL MEMS. Cathing Cold. You should never surrender to the habit of "catching cold." The habit often yields with surprising sudden ness, for it is quite unable to get the better of those who are in really good health. To fight.a cold after you have caught it is a good thing—you can scarcely do less; but it is much bet ter to malcc yourself so formidable that it will not dare to attack you. In carrying on the battle you may have to form a complete set of new habits and break off many cherished . old ones. The place to begin is in the bedroom at night. If you sleep with your window shut you simply deliver yourself, bound hand and foot, to your enemy. If you open it two or three inches you are a little better off, but not much. Insist upon sleeping in the open air as far as possible. If there is such a thing as a specific against colds it is to be found in the sleeping porch or tjie open bedroom. Next to that comes the cold sponge bath in the morning. If the victim of colds js a you...

ACCIDENTAL RECOVERIES OF LITERARY TREASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
ACCIDENTAL RECOVERIES OF LITERARY TREASURES. A- page of valuable Greek manu script once came into the possession 01 the Bishop of Ugento wrapped round a flsh that was brought to him. By the merest chance he examined the wrapping and found it to be part of a treatise thought for many cen turies to be lost. He hastened to the stall of the dealer where the fish had been bought, and arrived just in time I to save the remaining pages of the ! treasure. " I Quite as lucky as this was the chance that led to the preservation of the Magna Charta. The story runs ] that Sir Robert Cotton one day enter ed his tailor's shop as the tailor was about to cut up for patterns an an cient document to which were attach ed many large and imposing seals. Sir Robert arrested tbe hand of the tailor, even though he did not lmhie diately recognise the-value of the document, which he purchased for a few pence. The journal that Montaigne, the great French essayist, kept during his Italian travels was discovered...
Nightmare. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
Nightmare. Nightmare, according to one theory, is due to a suspension of power in the muscles of inspiration. The weight, the want of breathing, and the sense of suffocation seem to prove this; and a still greater proof is that, after the sufferer can speak only one syl lable, the paroxysm is at an end. The word cannot be spoken without breath -■-breath cannot come out of the lungs until it is brought in, nor brought in without the action of. the muscles of the breast and ribs. Nothing can .be more simple than the cause; it is the temporary paralysis of the pector al muscles, through the medium of the nerves which supply them with feeling.
