CONDITION OF CROPS. Alihough there is a gloomy agri cultural outlook in this district, it is jirobable that a majcriiy of the oat «rops will be high enough to cut with the reaper and binder. A large proportion of the wheat crops "will possibly be cut fGr hay, if the •drought is not broken up, as the jurospect of the grain coming to maturity is very doubtful, and far mers will not be inclined to take the
LIFE'S RECOMPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 ive 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 the g...

WHAT THEY LACKED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914
WHAT THEY LACKED. Two men on a train were apparently old acquaintances, antf they were In a jovial mood. Both were grey, but each had a luxuriant head of hair. Near them sat a stout party with i 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 argument of the cause of baldness, and after considerable jocularity, the pair turned to the peariy-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 ing us what you regard as the real cause of baldness?" The stranger wheeled about, eyed his questioner fiercely, and uttered juBt one word, "Brains!"

The Arrows of Outrageous Fortune. Rastus was sorely wounded. He had been the victim of a brutal as sault. The physician who treated him for his wounds was sympathetic. "Great heavens!" he said. "Some body has beaten you up in a terrific manner. You must have been hit at least nine or ten times." "Dat aint no joke," said Rastus, who was still trembling. "I don't be lieve I wus able to git out ob de way ob anything dat wuz throwed at me." "Then you ought to learn a lesson from it," suggested the doctor. "Here after, you ought to stay far away from people who indulge in thiB sort o£ thing.'' ,:Dar ain't no chance," Rastus ob jected gloomily. "You know I ain't got de price of no divo'ce."

' CffA'P.T BHl, LXXXI. On the Verae. Herepath stood lor some minuteB outside that window of Camford House taking in the bent, crafty-lo- i ing figure ol' Daniel Harley, and mak ing quite sure that he was not mis taken. His identification of the old miser did not surprise hinj; indeed, he had had so many surprises lately that they were losing their power to startle him. All the same, the puz zle of Harley's interest in Camford remained, and Herepath made up his mind that he would leave nothing undorc to solve it. Ho could see Harley looking here and there, as ir in search of some thing. There was a scowl on the old man's face—his lips moved as if ho were muttering something to him self. He appeared to have no /ear of being discovered, but moved along as if he were on absolutely familiar ground. Then the light of the candle became more and more faint as the miser vanished in the distance Evidently something .radically wrong was going^on here, and pos sibly the oId3ix> „iaker and hi...

FAREWELL TO THE FAN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914
FAREWELL TO THE FAN. With the coming info general use ot the electric fan and elaborate scien tific systems of ventilation in assem bly hall, church, theatre, and ball room, the fan of history and romance, wielded for close on four centuries by feminine hands, is rapidly passing. The art of fan-making, in which distin guished painters once joined, has nowadays become a prosaic trade. Machines turn them out by tens of thousands; Japan is said to export 11 millions a year. But the real fan of sentiment and fashion is practically no more. There is no longer the excuse for it, and hence it has ceased being part of the feminine costume. As the wo man's weapon of coquetry and influ ence it has been discarded. Fans are not to-day the romantic presents they once were, and in social life they have come to bo less and less seen. The modern woman does not seem to need them at all, or want them. The fan is no longer a personal posses sion. Any fan will do, the most insig nificant little affair,...
CHAPTER XXXII. An Eye For An Eye. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 October 1914
CHAPTER XXXII. An Eye For An Eye. The.sudden defection of hiB child had been a bitter 'blow to Harley. There were reasons for his rage and hie seeming impotence In the matter far deeper than any that Gilray dreamt of. The miner had been taken 'by surprise. Enid's rebellion was the last thing he ■would have ex pected. Hitherto the girl had been docile enough. Certainly she had protested and argued, and that was all, and Harley did not mind that. She had round the task of go-between, which had been thrust on her, a hate ful one, and had speedily become sus picious that thero was something very wrong about the business carried 011 so secretly, but so far she had never before dared to set that stern old father of hers at defiance. When Gilray brought him the news • of Enid's flight so dramatically, Har ley raged and fumed for some time like a lunatic, and the doctor deem ed it prudent not to interfere. But oy and-by the old man calmed down, and seemed prepared to face the situa tion. "Y...

Better Got Rid Of. A physician culling one day on a gentleman who had been severely af nicted -with gout, found, to his sur prise, the disease gone, and the gen tleman rejoicing in his recovery over a bottle ot wine. "Come along, doctor," exclaimed the patient, "you are just in time to taste mis bottle of Madeira. It is the first of a pipe that has just been broached."

"Well, then," answered the gay in curable, "fill your glass, for now that we hrve found out the cause, the sooner we get rid of it the better."

WIT AND HUMOR. For Sail. Two rows in one morning with her better half had decided Mrs. Meggin. "There, that'll do," she murmured to herself, as she surveyed the crude ly-painted signboard in her cottage. "HI see if he won't work! Hanging on to me for my bit o' cottage!" A party of students from a neigh boring college strolled past in the afternoon, and laughed uproariously when they read the little sign: "For sail." .Mrs. Meggin was stolidly cleaning her windows, and never cast an eye ac the little gathering. "Hi, old woman," called out one sal low-looking youth, "when does this house sail!" "Wneuever the man conies along 1 that can raise the wind!" tersely an swered the old dame, calmly getting on with her work.
