III. Roodlands, Glawith, December 31, 1910. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
III. .Boodlands, Glawith, December 31, 1910. Dear Pamela,-I've tried to tell you the truth many times, but I could not face the look I knew would come in your eyes. The fact is-Tina and I love one another, and by the time you receive this note, which we are post ing in London, we shall be man and wife. Most people would call me a cad for. throwing you over after five years' courtship, and I suppose I am; but it is better that one should suffer than" that three lives should be wreck ed through a mistaken sense of hon or. Tina "and I hope that some day you will forgive both of us. ? Yours, James Dawson. Pamela Leigh folded tlie letter with 1 trembling hands and, thrusting it into her bosom, sat for a long time staring blankly before lier. The blow that had been dealt her was as cruel as it was unexpected; for, although she had been aware of a change in Jim's attitude ever since Tina's coming a month ago, never for ! one moment had she believed it pos sible that he would so heartlessly...

SOME THINGS TO AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
SOME THINGS TO AVOID. There are a few things that a wom an sho;iltl never be guilty. of doing. She should never laugh when slight ing remarks are made about one of her own sex. She should never speak of her efforts as "very well for a woman." She should never belittle her own sex by assuming ignorance of or a lack of interest in questions t":at are of vital importance to thou sands of other women. A woman with m assured place in society can help 'hese loss happily situated by a frank ii- of comradeship. She can help Vse who are struggling for a liveli ' ;ird by giving work and spe&lt;i>.ir.g of «'Oiuan can find ways constantly to 1 :.!P other women in one way or aa (/.her.

HELPFUL WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
HELPFUL WIVES. It is not always the wife who stands behind her husband's counter, or shares his office or labors with him, shoulder to shoulder, who is the great est help to a man. Many women, dis tinctly feminine, and to all appearan ces hopelessly unbusinesslike, are first aids to the busy husband, and they seldom or never enter the shops, offices, or factories over which their husbands rule. A woman blessed with the faculty of saying or doing the right thing at the right minute is bound to bo a help to her husband. The woman v. ho can make herself indispensable c&lt;> >".vr hus band as his social mentor tu'd co entertainer has many pleasures which the less tactful sisters miss.

IE "I'm sorry, Pamela-will you for-, give me? ' I was a 6ad to.speak such .words 'to you'."'' ; it "was tile' next day, arid Pamela, was taking some cakes'out of tlie oven, lifted a liot; flushed face and smiled into her lover's face. The smile told James Dawson all ?>e wanted to know, and, moving im petuously forward, he clasped Pamela in his arms and gave her a fervent! kiss. ? ' . . "Mind the cakes,'" she --laughed; ihen, as he released her, "now you i:iust come and see Tina." With Jight, deft touch, she first, re moved the cakes .on to a wooden board, then, beckoning to Jim, led the way into a long, low parlor. " The man followed indifferently. The .ast time he had seen Tina she had neen in the pig-tail stage; aud, hav .ng ragarded her then as a tiresome necessity to be endured, he did not expect to be particularly thrilled by Llie sight of her now.. But when he .?eached the threshold he paused in wondering admiration- for lying in a graceful attitude on a couch near the -.vi...
PAMELA'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
PAMELA'S CHOICE. By FRANCES BROWN. "We've been engaged for five years, Pamela, and I'm getting tired of wait ing. When are you going to marry me?" James Dawson, a stalwart young farmer of thirtyi - looked frowningly at tlic girl who stood bare-headed be fore him in the waning light of a chill November afternoon. He spoke with irritable impatience, and the girl sigh ed as she glanced back over her shoul der at a low-lying farmstead that nest led in the valley some hundred yards away. A few minutes since she had heard her lover riding by, and had run to the' gate to give "him a passing greeting. "In a year's time, Jim," she said, and 'there was a note of appeal in her sweet, low tones as she laid' a. well shaped but worlc-coarsened hand on his arm. "I can't leave my mother until Tina is able to take my place, and-and a year will soon pass, dear." "A year!" she echoed scornfully. "You talk of years as lightly as of weeks!

SHE WAS THE NECK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
SHE WAS THE NECK. There are husbands who, among their male companions, like to have it supposed that they are just a lit tle tyrannical at home. One such man, who had two or three friends at his house one evening, remarked, as they were chatting together com fortably at a rather late hour: "Yes, I do what I like at home. My wife, she has to bend to my will, I can toll you. In my own house I'm a re gular Julius Caesar." His wife came .into the room in time to hear this last sentence. The tyrant of his household looked..a lit Lle uneasy, but his wife neither frowned nor, apparently, paid any at tention to the remark. But, after a moment, she remarked, very positive >>" "Centlemen, it is late.v and Julius Caesar has got to go to bed." Whereupon the husband arose, stammered his excuses, and retired, leaving his guests to find their way o t as best they could. It was in another household that the husband once remarked to his wife: "You know, my dear, that I'm the bend of the house....
LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania tor going to law seeilis to possess no inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, and judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense numb^,- of young lawyers turned '.oose upon the community ev*>ry year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that has been g:ven to litigation within the last few years. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a demand for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lotisly, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other by newly-fledged counsellors, who hope to profit by the damage. However this may be, it is quite certain that tl . proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To be sure, the ...

Correcting a Gusher. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914
Correcting a Gusher. Bret Hartc was so frequently com-. piimented as the author of "Little Breeches" that he was almost as sorry as was Colonel John Hay, the' teal author of the verses, who preferred his fame to rest on more ambitious works. A gushing lady who prided herself upon her literary taste said to him one : "My dear Mr. Ifarte, I am so de lighted to meet you. I have read everything you ever wrote, but of all your dialect verse there is none that compares with your 'Little Breeches.' " "I quite agree with you madam," said Mr. Harte; "but you have put the little Creeches on the wrong man."
