Hugh was very well known to the people there, and he engaged a suite of rooms immediately and sent Leila up j to them. Hie excited manner alarm ed her not a little, and when he told her that he must see some of his friends but would .be back before mid night, she knew that the true drama of her journey was about to be made known to her. Desdy was very tired by this time, and she put him to bed at once. The suite of rooms which Hugh had en gaged was the best in the hotel, and its magnificence set the boy wonder ing. Pie prattled incessantly of what the engine had said to him, and what the ships bad been doing—asked about the great cluster of electric lights in the sitting-room, ana was delighted at the little lamp by his bedside.

II. The journey was dark and labori ous, as though material things were themselves conscious of fatigue. iThey rolled from station to station to the accompaniment of hissing steam and tired voices. There was no moon, but the northern lights shimmered upon the sleeping fields and discovered an horizon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh should come with them, and he got into the carriage manfully and sat down with an air of authority good to see. The excitement had waked him thor oughly, and he asked thein many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come 'back? Was Lally still frightened of him? Hugh tried to tell him, but did not make much of a job of it. "You are going to Edinburgh, Desdy —te-morrow I will show you the shops and we will 'buy something good—you must not think of it now, old chap; you must try to sleep." The boy looked at him in wide-eyed wonder. said «n„ v t!ie engine talkin'," he j dark l,i?uU ? !lmk lL minds the ft afraW?" thG mn Wbo drh'es Leila...

Behind her lay the gloomy pile of Aberfeldy Castle; looking just the same as it had done at the hour of «awn just live days ago. Much had happened in those intervening hours. She liad heard and answered the story of a man's love; had heen ottered a home and had refused it; had heen in ^ 'ted to become the mistress of all that splendid domain and had answered that she dare not. Now she was just Leila_ Shane again, going out friend .•p into the world, and knowing not wv-Wrtte® would; rharfoor. her. Oesdy was greaily excited by this journey at nightfall, just as he had been at Newcastle when they went aboard the yacht. His childish prat tle perplexed her and was not the least of her troubles.

When She Began To Think. "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye iver think o' marryin'?" "Shure now," said Biddy, looking de murely at her shoe—"shure now, the subject has niver entered me mind at all, at all." "It's sorry, Oi am," said Pat, and he turned away. ✓ "Wan minute, Pat," said Biddy soft ly. "Ye've set me thinkin'."

Going Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914
Going Cheap. Some time ago a man was awaken- j ed in the night to find his wife weep- j ing uncontrollably. "My darling!" he exclaimed, "what | is the matter?" ■ "A dream!" she gasped. "I have had such a horrible dream." Her husband begged her to tell it to him, in order that he might com fort her. After long persuasion she was induced to say this:— "I thought I was walking down the street, and I came to a warehouse where there was a large placard, 'Husbands for sale.' You could get beautiful ones for fifteen hundred pounds, or even for twelve hundred, and very nfce-IookJng ones for as low as a hundred." The husband asked innocently:— "Did you see any that looked like me?" The sobs became strangling. "Dozens of them," gasped the wife, "done up in bunches like asparagus, and sold for ten shillings a bunch."
