On Account. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
On Account. Peggy Newton had been a faithfu" household domestic for years, and did not grumble much when her wages were occasionally passed over. But as time went on and her wages fell more and more into arrears, she ventured to ask something "on ac count." "Why, haven't I paid your ivage? lately, Peg? How careless of me!" her mistress said. "I'm sorry I have no money in the house just now, bat here's a smart cloak which I've ceascd to wear and which is only ,i wee bit out of fashion. You'll take it in lieu of wages, won't you?" "No, ma'am, I'm sure I sha'n't," said Peg, wrathfully, eyeing the faded cloak. "A Peg I may be by name, but I won't be that sort of peg that people hang cast-off clothes on —not if I know it." There arc two reasons why some people don't mind their own busi ness. One is that they haven't any mind, the other that they haven't any business.

AN INDIAN SAND STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
AN INDIAN SAND STORM. Since sunset it had been growing gradually hotter until at last when we finally settled down to bed after a few envious remarks, in which Es quimaux and polar bears figured largely, there was none r>f us but would have gladly exchanged places with any furnace tonier in England, it was far too hot to sleep under bed clothes, and we had for some time used f.hcm t supplement the pillow. After opening all doors and win dows to their full3">t extent and ex plaining to the punkah-wallah that the stopping oi the punkahs was the signal for his immediate assassina tion, we gradually dropped asleep. Two or three hours later I was aroused by what at first seemed to be three or four batteries of artillery firing off at close range. Upon sitting up under my mosquito net I discover ed the noise to be caused by the doors and windows-banging to and fro. Wo who had not long been in the country were all the more astonished when we realised that all the time there was hardl...

REARING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
REARING CALVES. A noted Jersey breeder and impor ter, in giving his opinion on tiie rear ing of calves, says that the calf that is fed lots o£ whole milk and rich grains, while it looks good and is mak ing the growth so much desired by the progressive owner, will invariably lay on excessive flesh, develop a thick neck, heavy dewlap, coarse bones, and a heavy hide. On the other hand, the scrawny call', with a pot-belly, wbilo it does not show up well in the show ing, is the one that gets admiration when it comes into milk. It has been his observation that calves that suffer from scours aiv in variably the ones that give a good r e count of themselves when mature*!, for the simple reason that in tryi:.t to check the bowel trouble he feeds L--t a light grain ration, and the milk i;:v en. does not contain much butter-tut. Most dairymen work for thrift and growth, but where is the experienced dairyman who has not observed that the suffering, pot-bellied, skim-milk fed calf often turns ou...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. True manhood comes from self-con trol—from subjection of the lower powers to the higher conditions of our being. The road ambition travels is too narrow for friendship, too crooked for love, too rugged for honesty, too dark for science. iJo tiot make tlio mistake of trying to forget your mistakes. Keep them in mind, study them, and use them as helps to success. If you would touch a nettle without being stung by it take hold of it stout ly. Do the same to other annoyances and few things will ever disturb you. Music helps soldiers to drill and march. The tunes which the bands play are lively and merry, for a9 the music is so will be the march. It is possible to travel through life to the tune of praise. The lmbit of counting our mercies is as easy to form as the habit of grumbling. What a man loves colors his lue as surely as a dye colors what is plunged into it. A man who loves money is colored in all his being by that love. His whole nature daily grows differ ent ...

CROSS-CHANNEL HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
CROSS-CHANNEL HUMOR. You can laugh when trouble hits you, You can smile when clouds appear, You can grin when worry "gits you," And when disappointment's near; You can laugh when rain is falling. It you are a cheerful soul, But you cannot do much laughing When the boat begins to roll. You can bear up under sorrow, You can calmly shoulder woe; And perhaps no sign o£ anguish Will your visage ever show; You may hide all sign of weakness, Though your hopes are in the ditch; But you cannot hide your feelings When the boat begins to pitch. Yet the cheer-up poet tells you To present a cheerful face, And to smile at all your troubles, And to never show a trace Of the petty griefs that fret you, But y u'd lose your self-control. And you will not smile, I'll bet you, When the boat begins to roll.

CHAPTER XXI. so Daniel Harley was Brigden's mysterious client. Ilerepath was not in the least surprised to make the discover1'. Enid had more or less i'rjparjd him for it. rio recalled her strange agitation at the mention of Brigden's name. This was the con spiracy she hinted at, and he could see her reasons now for not being p'ainer with him. It was one more turn in the maze of mystery in which Enid's life was involved, and she had not been more explicit because she was afraid of her father's part in it. He could not hear what those men were saying. They were muttering to themselves in whispers; they sesmed to he dissatisfied about some thing. Herepath smiled grimly. They should have much greater cause for dissatisfaction before he had finished with them. He came forward and addressed them by name. "This is quite an unexpected plea sure, gentlemen," he said. "Good evening, .Mr. Brigden. .Mr. Harley, J s'.i) delighted to see you here. But just one question. How did you gei here, and...
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. CHAPTE XX. Smash! [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTE XX. Smash! ; Herepath determined that Blanche should not know—at least, not yet— of his terrible misfortune. There was uo need to spoil her life with his trou bles. It would be good at any rate to know that she was provided for. Harold Gay was a line fellow, -who had had more than his share of mis fortunes, most of which had been . . made for him by other people. Doubt less he would be over from Camford in a day or two, and then all the news could be discussed. But' Gay was over already. Here path found him there when he got , home. He seemed to ail the little ; :t — —tlrig-room in the flat—a long, lean, bronzed man, hard as nails, and clear of eye as a child. Not a handsome man, perhaps, buc good to look upon, and a face that invited confidence at the first glance. "Well, here you are, old man," he cried with a hand-grip that made Ge...

Private Pat OTlynn, 011c of a latigue party, had just finished taking in tlic coloncl's luggage when, that omnipotent person's lady ques tioning him, he made it appear that he had been the only one engaged in the work. "You must be quite exhausted," she cried. "What will you have to drink—a glass of sherry, a glass of port, or some hot rum?" "Why, plaze yet ladyship," answered Pat, as a mark of decorum, "I'm not thirsty." "That may be," rejoined her lady ship; "but a man of my husband's distinguished regiment rendering a service must drink with me." "Sure, in that case, yer honoress," replied Pat, "it's rude to be back ward, so I'll have the sherry now. and will be drinking the port while ycr honortfss is mixing the rum."
CHAPTER XXII. A Check. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 26 September 1914
CHAPTER XXII. A Check. Daniel Harley, with Brigden by his side, shuffled along the road mutter ing angrily to himself, eager to find anybody upon whom to put the blame for this unexpected reverse. He had been beaten by an honest man in a perfectly legitimate way, and this fact angered the old rogue more than the loss of his money. He had looked for ward to a fortune from the great in vention, and had made up his avari cious mind that Geoffrey Herepath should benefit nothing by it, and here in a moment the whole thing had slip ped through his fingers. Oh, some body should pay dearly for this wretched fiasco. "It's rather awkward," Brigden ven tured at last, somewhat nervously. "Who would have guessed that Here path would show fight like that?" "You should have guessed it,'' Har ley grunted wrathfully. "Nobody but an idiot would have put his head into a trap like that. If I hadn't been de luded into going to Long Acre every thing would have gone right." "But you wanted to go to Long A...
