Spring Song. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
Spring Song. Sitting entranced in my dear old arm chair, My thoughts turn to love, for spring'B in the air! .My blood rushes faster, and lain would I sing The rapture that comes with the pres ence of spring. But all of a sudden I yell (even swear). The cause of it all? Why, the spring in the chair. The old padding's gone, and a sudden sharp sting Unpleasantly heralds the presence of springy A certain politician has the happy knack of being able to parry incon venient interruptions with some smart retort that immediately squashes the opposition. He was speaking at a rather noisy meeting not long ago, and after a short time a big lump of wood was thrown at him. Fortunate ly, the aim was bad, and it fell harm lessly on the platform. The speaker picked it up and show ed it to the audience. "Good heavens!" he exclaimed 1h tones of mock anxiety, "one of our opponents has lost his head."
SAVED THE TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 October 1914
SAVED THE TOWN. It was in the year 1868, after a 'bat tle, and the streets of Madrid were iilled with angry crowds, bent on de stroying everything and everybody. Suddenly an unknown man, tall and dark and strong; appeared at the city hall. "Give me a band of musicians," he said, "and before nightfall I shall c ntrol all Madrid." He must have been a man of rare personality to have been able to per suade the authorities at all in that dark hour to give mm anything of the kind, but he did. Going out with the musicians he wandered through the city. While they played he sang—popular songs or some national air. When thes« bored the listeners he mounted old boxes and told funny tales, and by and-bye the people forgot to be angryt and followed their new leader wher ever he went, laughing over his stor ies and songs. - By nightfall peace reigned in the city, and the mob broke up and went home to bed. The man's name was Felipe Ducazel, and he was only twenty-two years old when he clev erly ac...

LIFE'S RECOMPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914
LIFE'S RECOMPENSE. When our hearts are oppressed by the troubles of life There is ever some Joy to. be found But we gaze on the brambles and grieve o'er the thorns When the roses are glowing around. O, the world is a sordid and joyless abode If our hearts have no time to be gay, If we see not the visions of laughter and love That illumine the commonplace way. In the struggle for fame and the passion for gold, Many dwell in the shadow of strife, Seeing naught of the glorious sun beams of hope That are bright with the lustre of life. They are dreaming of sorrow the mor row may bring And are blind to the joys of to-day. In their hearts is the mournful sigh of the trees When the songsters have fluttered away. But the souls who have learned of the magic and charm That is hid in the heart of a flower, That is" heard in the swell of the rap turous song , Of a bird in the eventide hour, Have a guerdon of comfort that fame cannot bring, And a pleasure no riches can give. They have learned th...

WHAT THEY LACKED. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914
WHAT THEY LACKED. Two men 011 a train were apparently old acquaintances, and they were in a jovial mood. Both were grey, but each had a luxuriant head of hair. Near them sat a stout party with » shining dome that was almost desti tute of hirsute covering. The two friends- exchanged face tious remarks about silver locks, then indulged in some pleasantries about the 'thinning of the thatch," with casual references to door knobs and billiard balls, much to the amusement of the passengers, but to the evident discomfiture of the bald-headed man. : The talk finally developed into an I argument of the cause of baldness, and after considerable jocularity, the pair turned to the pearly-pated man, and one said:— "My friend and I have been discuss ing the cause of baldness, but we can't seem to agree. Would you mind tell I ing us what you regard as the real cause of baldness?" | The stranger wheeled about, eyed ■ his questioner fiercely, and uttered just one word, "Brains!"

CHAPTER XXXI. On the Verge. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914
I CHAPTER XXXI. On the Verge. Herepath stood Tor some minutes outside that window of Camford House taking in the bent, crafty-lo iiig figure of Daniel Harley, and mak ing quite sure that he was not mis taken. His identification of the old miser did not surprise him; indeed, he had had so many surprises lately that they were losing their power to startle him. All the same, the puz zle or Harley's interest in Camford remained, and Herepath made up his mind that lie would loave nothing undone to solve it. He could see Harley looking here and there, as if in sfcarch of some thing. There was a scowl on the old man's face—his lips moved as if he were muttering something to him self. He appeared to have no fear of being discovered, but moved along as if lie were on absolutely familiar ground. Then the light of the candle became moro and more faint as the miser vanished in the distance. Evidently something .radically wrong was going 011 here, and pos sibly the old caretaker and his wife kno...

The Face Behind the Glass. ,. .1 fortunate perhaps for Jlere patn that he was alone just at that moment. He had quite recovered from Ills surprise by the time that Player returned with the tea. Heropath 'de emed that he would say nothing of his discovery to anybody; at least no ooay should know except Harold Gay. At any rate, he knew who the thief was now, and nothing would be gain ed by betraying his suddenly gained knowledge to Player. He would get away as soon as pos sible and return home. He had plenty of food for thought as he walked along. It was nearly seven o'clock by the time he reached the quaint aha changing old house near the lodge gates of Camford.
