LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." From the time ho emigrated to Can* ada, at the age of eighteen, until ho was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath .cona spent all his time at various posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on tho Labrador. In all those thirty years among tho northern Indians and the Eskimos, Donald Smith, as he then was, held h'mself strictly to the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civilised life and the highest office in the gift of the Hud son Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to 'be overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the Labrador while he was governor of the compauy. It is a rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall 'be allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a string of white garments was seen stretched across deck. The watchers were amazed; for to them the wash-line suggested only the p...
GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914
GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. As a result of the hobby of a young resident in Hurstmonceaux, this pretty Sussex village now enjoys all the advantages of an electric light in stallation. Mr. C. W. Von Roemer, son of Baron Von Roemer, took up electrical engineering as a hobby a few years ago, fitting up his father's house with electric light. To-day, as the result of this early hobby, the vil lage at night resembles a patch of Piccadilly, and housewives tyrn on a switch to cook their husbands' din ners and heat their rooms. When I visited this "electric vil lage," says a writer, I found that nearly everybody, including the blacksmith, butcher and baker, were using electric power to help them in their work. Mr. Von Roemer explained how the "miraclo" hud been brought about. "After fitting up my father's house with electric light," lie said, "I though it would be a good idea to ex tend the plant to the village. "At first the villagers objected. They had never known any other light except candles and...

It would be diffi cult to find a sanctuary so near and perfect as this one undoubtedly is. A large and handsomely designed cross looks down on the sacred, glit tering shrine. In front of the altar —some distance away, and right tm rder the dome, and surrounded by a broad paved space upon which one's footsteps re-echo—is t'necrypt wheie | Napoleou's tomb stands.

II. Patty had gono to Brighton after the great misfortune, and aho had tho tidings there. When they told her that she had become a rich w> man—one of the richest in the coun try—she gave way to hysterical tear5?, and seemed to Insinuate that Heres ford had done her a wrong in dying at all. Tho lie which sho had told about the journey to New York should have been repeated by him on hi3 deathbed out of simple loyalty to a woman. After all there had been no wrong, and why should not he have done it? A woman's logic could not understand. Patty had cried for two days after Leila went to prison. Frequent quarrels with her landlady and dramatic outbursts, in which Bho declared that she would tear down the prison walls with her own "poor fingers," varied tho monotony of tears and did her health- much good. A promise to go immediately to see her "dearest darling" whom a villain had sent to gaol was not fulfilled, partly because Leila herself hated scenes and did not wish it; partly be cau...

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. : " Hugh bad a vaguo idea as to Mat Michel's reason for their voyage to Cherbourg: hut it was vorv indefinite and the philosopher no longer spoke about it. A brusque "Ye shall know when the time comes," was the best that could be got out of him, and even George Hedges, with a prime' clerical faculty of Interrogation, did next to nothing with such a secret oracle. Mat feared to disappoint h'.s friends and hold his tongue. The only person on board who seemed to un derstand him was Madame Adele. Cintra, all said and done, had been but a houso of captivity to her. 4 neurotic dream of love, dreamed by one who was doomed to die, had giv en place speedily to tbo darker houv when she bad come to understand tin tragic jest which Fate had planned for her. Taken from her home as by magic, now she turned wistful eyes to France again, desiring the little house by the railway, and the friends to whom she was flesh and blood and not the Madonna of a picture....
