Corrected Impressions. I. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 7 October 1911

Corrected Impressions, j By H. Carstairs. "A lady, slr. She refuses her name, but Insists on seeing you." John Kertly looked up from the writing-table in his sumptuous Park Lane homo. "Show her In." he said. A minute later tho door reopened and a woman entered. John Kertly forgot the conventionalities as he looked on lier. She was young, tall, and splendid- ly proportioned. lier dimpled cheeks seemed soft ns n child's, lier com- plexion was clear, despite the kiss of sun and ot zephyr. She lacked the primness of city dames. There wm something imperious, almost deflnnt, in her air. But, for the moment, John Kertly saw nothing of that. Ho was conscious of only ono fact. He was In the presence of a really heantiful woman, and his eyes revelled In the feast. "What can I do for you?" he said at last. "Moro than you will bo willing, but not less than I shall demand." It was neither tho tone nor thc speech for a suppliant. John Kertly was a self-made man. Ho had attain- ed to the altitude ...

CHAPTER. XIII. The Fugltlv». Darry Ingram plunged Into tho dark, noes of thc Tyrie woods, comforted by his hnlf-slstor's kindness, and moro substantially, perhaps, hy the know- ledge that twelve pounds of good money lay securely In his breast poc- ket. To that and to his mother-wit he must now trust if he would get clean away beyond the reach ot the tentacles of thc law stretching out to suck him in. To the slow workings or Sergeant Macfadyen's mind, which had long passed Into a proverb in the district, Barry trusted a good deal. While tho sergeant was evolving won- derful schemes In his mind, hided by study of his copious notes, his man hoped to make good his escape. It was no new situation in willoh Darry found himself, though this was lils first serious scrape. Always a bright, mischief-loving lad, n lnrge part of his school life had been occu- pied In ovndlng the consequences of sundry breaches of school law. Figur- atively speaking, he had nlwnys been a fugitive from justice, n...

IC yon have time to read, why don't you rend something worth while?" "Whnt would you suggest?" asked the barber politely. "Oh. a good book or poetry would have n refining inlliienro upon you. Try the works or Longfellow or Ten- nyson or Swinburne." "I think I see myself patronising such people," retorted tho barber In- dignantly. "If those men had harbor- ed a bitter personal grudge against barbers, they couldn't have done more to Injure my profession. I don't sup- pose that any one of them ever spent sixpence In a barber's shop In his Ute. You surely never have seen their pictures or you wouldn't have marlo such a recommendation.

CHAPTER XV. Morning Tea. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911

CHAPTER XV. j Morning Tea. | There was not much steep that night In Tyrie Castle; tho shadow ot the tragedy In Cardyke woods seem- ed to brood over tho whole household. Ingram was up the best part of the night, ministering to a half-hysterical wife; listening to her Wallings over the hnrdness of fate nnd her grumbl- ings over the shortcomings of various persons towards herself. The ironmaster, known Ja public life as one who would stand no non- sense, here showed a large and won- drous patience, which gave no sign of wearing out. His wife was his cross, which ho boro with exemplary ' fortitude. Christabel was wakeful, too. In tho ¡ room above, full of planning for her self nnd of pitiful concern for narry, ! whom she had last seen In such sad plight. It was characteristic of Chris- ' tahel that she could detach narry from his mother, and care for him whole-heartedly apart from his rela- tionship to her'.

TAKE YOURSELF CHEERFULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911

TAKE YOURSELF CHEERFULLY. Dy E. G. Owen. So many good folks talco themselves so seriously-so desperately seriously They get up In tho morning lu a darli brawn study winch gets darker and darker ns the day wears on, for already they are thinking-oh, BO seriously! about tho duties and pastimes of" the morrow. Youngish people are, as a rule, tho worst sinners In this respect, for tue older you grow the better perspective you get of your own tiny place lu the vast scheme of things, in time you realise that you and your affairs are not nenrly sp important as you were wont to Imagine, and that the wurld would whirl on juBt tho same without you and your big-little undertakings. Does that look like "cold water"? Well, "cold water" ls sometimes a needed restorative, and In these days of strain and stress, when everybody is trying to "get on" na fast as he or sho possibly can, a little douche ot cold water to damp excessive ardor and unhealthy eagerness ls very good for one.

Encore "Piece" to Speak. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911

Encore "Piece" to Speak. I stood on tho bridge nt midnight, It wns dark ns dark could be, When a man from tho country came And tied his horso to me. To make and keep friends is the great art of life, yet the easiest and simplest thing in the world. Every- body desires friends; though from shyness or pride-which is often the veil of shyness-few are ready to meet us half-way. Hut If we learn to ignore tho thin films of diversity in training, station, interest and n!m, and go straight to the heart rtf our fellow- man, we are sure of finding a cordial response. "He who finds he bas something to sell, "And goes and whispers lt down a well. Ts not so apt to collar the dollars. As he who climbs a tree and hollers." Little Willie: Say, pa, what ls busi- ness courtesy? Pa: There are two kinds of business enurtesy, my son. One is the kind ex- tended to people who pay cash, and the other is extended to people who don't.

A MARVELLOUS MEMORY. Antonio Mngllabecht was born at Florence, October 29, 1G33. Such was tho poverty of his parents that they thought themselves happy In getting him into the service of a man who Bold herbs and fruit. There lie took every opportunity, though he could not tell one letter from another, to pore over the leaves ot some old books, which served for waste paper, declar- ing that ho loved lt ot all things. A neighboring bookseller, who observed this, took him Into his service. Young Magllabechl soon learned to read, and his Inclination for reading became his ruling passion, and a prodigious mem- ory his distinguished talent. He retain, ed not only the sense of what he read, but often nil the wordB and the very manner of spelling. If singular. To make trial of the f.orco ot lils memory, a gentleman lent him a manu- script he wns going to print.
