NEXT DOOR. By FERGUS HUME, Author of "The Mystery of a Hansom Cab," "The Yellow Holly," "The Silver Bullet," "The Spider," "Seen in the Shadow," etc. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., Ltd., Lon. & Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER I. Coming of Age. The guests in Dr. Warton's draw-' ing-room felt at peace with them selves and all their little world. Hav ing just finished a most excellent din ner they were enjoying that hour ot rumination so dear to the repleted animal. Men stood around smiling vaguely; women sat here and there chattering aimlessly, for the.mental powers of both sexes being in abey ance, there was a decided lack of concentration, which resulted in de sultory conversation. In prehistoric times everyone would have been fast asieep to assist digestion; but natur ally the conventionalism of modern days demanded that each guest should keep awake and endeavor to behave agreeably. As instinct was thus at war with training, those pres ent exer...

' Angelina was quarrelling with her husband's family, who were "up In arms" because she was '"spending all his money." "Good-bye, you silly people," sh® said, patronisingly. "I hope you'll have more sense by the next time I see you." - "I suppose she means that as a partin' shot," said the overworked and underfed eldest sister, who rejoiced in the name of Jemima. ' "Rather a good one; too, I fancy," remarked Angelina, airily. ' "It ought to be," saiti Jemima. "Spe; cially seein' the amount p! money ypu spends on powder." Mr. A,: "This is a very healthy town," Mr. B.: "I must say this town holds the record for health." Mr. A.: "My father died here at eighty-five, and my grandfather died at one hundred and forty." Mr. B.: "One hundred and forty?" Mr. A.: "Hight-street." As a woman was walking along a public street a man looked at and followed her. "W...
POODLES BUYS A SWARM OF BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
POODLES BUYS A SWARM OF BEES. "I have been reading Mr. Asquith's speech on economising in the home, and I believe we'd save money if wo kept bees and made our own honey," said Mr. Poddies, as he laid aside his paper. "That would be perfectly "grand. Can you buy some?"'Mrs. Poddies inquired. "Yes, Anna, I have already bought a swarm, and they will be delivered to-night." "Where will you put them?" she asked. "Under the tree in the backyard, my dear." "Can't you put them in the bicycle shed, Henry? I am afraid they will sting if you put them so close to the house." "Put them, in the bicycle shed," he exclaimed sneeringly. "Well, I'll be quartered. Mrs. Poddies, you are at the head of the class in the bee busi ness. Do you have an idea that we can drive them into the bicycle shed at night and tie them up as you do cows?" "No, I don't think any such thing; but I don't want to be chased into the house every time I step out of doors by a lot of ugly bees," she replied. "This stinging busi...
Of No Account. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
Of No Account. The young man who had been call ing so frequently on Mary at last came to see Mary's iather. There was a little hesitation as the two men met. Finally, he began: "It is a mere formality, I know, this asking for your daughter's hand; but we thought it would be pleasing to you if it were observed." Mary's father stiffened. "And may I inquire," he asked, "who suggested that 'asking my con ent to Mary's' mairia'ge was a mere formality?" '' "Ygs/sir," replied the young man, simply, "It was Mary's njdt^pr." "Papa, what do you call a man who runs a motor-car?" "It depends upon how near he comes to hitting me."

Too Late. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
Too Late. Dr. von Stephan, the German Post- j master-General, once took train from ! Konigsberg to enjoy a few days' deer stalking. Arrived at Dirschau, a town near his ■ destination, he stepped into the station telegraph-office to send news of his safety to his wife in Berlin. The official recognised his chief at" once; and with all obsequi-^ ousness began to write down his mes sage. Suddenly the Morse instru ment, used for service telegrams •only, began to work, and very shortly His Excellency pricked up his ears, for he distinguished the particular clicks that represented his own name. A glance at the clerk's face, now deathly pale, induced him to in quire further into the purport of this State telegram, and, when the click ing had ceased, he took up the paper ribbon and read as follows: — "liook out for squalls. Stephan is somewhere on the line., He will be ppking his nose everywhere." The Postmaster-General smiled sar donically, and" then went to the trans mitter and flashed ba...

KAISER'S LOSS [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
KAISER'S LOSS Judged from a purely business standpoint, the Kaiser stands to lose a lot- over this little business with" the Allies. For instance, the great War Lord is also a great landlord. He owns some sixty residences in differ ent parts of Germany, and no fewer than ninety private estates. These bring him in about £400,000 a year. Then there is the cost and upkeep of the Imperial yacht, a palatial af fair, for which the Kaiser's loyal sub jects pay. One way and another Germany, judged as a going concern, means about £2,000,000 a year to its overlord. This, by the way, is just about four times the same total of King George's income, and more than forty times that of the French Presi dent.

£1000 PER SHOT. What Modern Artillery Costs. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
£1000 PER SHOT. What Modern Artiljery Costs. This is a war of artillery. Shells and shrapnel are being used on a scale far in excess of the calculations of the most far-seeing military ex perts of Europe. That is why Kitch ener and French, are asking for more shells, and still more shells; for a gre^-t proportion of the £24 a minute which this war is costing is being blown away by our big guns. To fire a single shot from our big gest guns costs £1000, and some idea of the expenditure of naval firing can be gathered from that fact that one famous battleship could use up rough ly £20,000 worth of ammunition per minute If she worked all her guns at full blast, as she would do if neces sary. And to this huge outlay must be added the cost of the gun, remem bering that the largest weapon has a very short life, and is soon worn out. The most expensive gun we use is the 15in., though other big guns run up heavy ammunition bills. For instance, £75 vanishes in flame and smoke every time a 13....

DO YOUR BIT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
DO YOUR BIT. Comrades, nobly play the man! don the khaki for a span, Help to swell the ranks of Britain's growing host. Pit your strength 'gainst "Kaiser Bill," he has treated Belgium ill; Help to bring his deeds of "Kultur" home to roost. Think of Belgian mothers', wives', maidens' desecrated lives; All the wanton deeds of horror and of shame. Gird ye quick the sword and gun, • fight until the victory's won And "Kultur's" noosed for deeds too foul to name. If through physical defect from the khaki line you're checked, Help to carry on and do your "bit" at home; Then your duty you'll have done, just the same as with a gun, ■Luckier comrades face the foe in trench, o'er foam. Whate'er the part you play, play it in the British way, And keep the name of Britain clean and bright. Do the best that in you lies and you'il win that greatest prize— The knowledge tha!t you've acted just and right. Keep the hammers on the swing, make the forge and workshop ring; There's an army growing bigger ...

POVERTY NO REPROACH. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
POVERTY NO REPROACH. That -wealth alone does not en title its possessor to any special de ference is shown by Miss Wyllie in her book, "Bight Years in Germany." The author says:—1 "The German's indifference to money amounts very nearly to con tempt. I am not speaking only of the aristocracy. The very shopkeepers themselves have the same feeling, qnd it has often amused me during ■ shopping to watch how poverty-strick en Baroness von X. js surrounded by courteous deferential attendants, eager to sell her the sixpenny knick knack she has come to buy, whereas wealthy Frau Rosenkrantz, making her expensive purchases, receives no particular attention. "In Germany you can be poor and live poorly without reproach. You can live in a garret and dress as your means allow, but you will not be judged by your garret aod your shab biness, but by yourself. If you have fin honored name or a spark of gen ius, the doors of the most exclusive circles are opened to you. Talent and birth are the only Da...

THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 27 November 1915
THE CONCERT. The hall was crowded in the evening, and a very enjoyable concert, interspersed with interesting speeches, was given. Mr G. G. Bennett, the new president, made an excellent chairman. Cr John Clarke gave some interesting reminiscences, dating from 1854, the year before the Linton gold field was opened up. He was an old colonist, hav ing arrived in 1840 as a little boy. He had seen a great many changes. Mr Clarke then related a bushranging inci dent, describing how he had been stuck up, bound and gagged, by two robbers. This was in 1855, when he was a lad of about 18 years. That lad must have had a good deal of pluck and determina tion, for he freed himself from his bonds several times. The station homestead was also stuck up, his father and mother, and all on the place, to the number of 14, being bound and gagged. Some wero bouud with dog chains, and one was seated on a three-legged pot. Eventu ally the bushrangers became alarmed by the approach of two men, and disguised...
