FAREWELL TO THE FAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

FAREWELL TO THE FAN. With the coming into general use of 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 sontiment and faBhion is practically no more. There is no longer the excuse for it, and hence it has ceased boing 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 be 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] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

CHAPTER XXXII. An Eye For An Eye. The sudden defection of his child had been a bitter 'blow to Harley. There were reasons lor his rage and hiB seeming impotence in the matter far deeper than any that Qilray dreamt of. The miier gad betn taken toy surprise. Enid's rebellion ' was the last thing he would have ex pected. Hitherto the girl had teen docile enough. Certainly she had iprotested and argued, and that was all, and Harley did not mind that. She had found the task of go-between, which had been thrust on her, a hate ful one, and had speedily become sus picious that there was something very wrong about the business carried on 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 iiv and-by the old man calmed down, nnd seemed prepared to face ✓the situa tion. "...

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

BATTERY ROBBERY THIEVES VISIT BIRTHDAY TUNNEL. SIX PLATES REMOVED. H, is now some five or six years sinco an effort was previously made to roll the plates at tlio Birthday Tunnel battery, and it was duo to tlio vigilanco of tho watchman on duty at that time that the attempt was frustrated, and tho culprit was brought to book. On this occasion, however, the thieves were successful in entering the battery unobserved, and taking advantago no doubt of an oppor tunity when tho watchman was in an other part of tho buildings, they man aged to roiuovo and to get away with 110 fewer than six copper plates, having, it is understood, between 10 and 12 oz of gold attached to them.

WIT AND HUMOR. For Sail. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

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., "I'll see if he won't work! Hanging on to me for my hit o' cottage!" A party of students from a neigh boring college strolled past in the afternoon, anil laughed uproariously when they read the little sign: "For sail." .Mrs. .Meggin was stolidly cleaning her windows, and never cast an eye al the little gathering. "Hi, old woman," called out one sal low-looking youth, "when does this house sail!" "Wnenever the man comes along that can raise the wind!" tersely an swered the old dame, calmly getting on with her work.

Purity of the Law. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

Purity of the Law. At Bodmin Assizes once, a 'barris ter, while pleading, web interrupted by the judge:— "Mr. Carter, you are wasting the time of the Court." "Time of the Court," retorted the truculent v teran, glaring fiercely at the Bench. "Your lordBhip means— your lordship's dinner!" The judge threw up his hands in de spair, and Carter continued his har angue in peace. The same redoubtable advocate was on another occasion defending a man charged with obtaining money under_ false pretences. "False pretences!" said he, with fine scorn. "Why, we all make them every day, barristers and solicitors and judges—the whole lot of ua. Talk of the purity of the judicial ermine!" Here he pointed derisively to the learned judge, who sat cowering on the Bench. "Why, it's only rabbit skin!" Shouts of laughter greeted this ir reverent statement, which investiga tion would probably show to be liter*., ally true.

Putting It Nicely. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

Putting It Nicely. Lord Brassey is very £oud o£ yacht ing and cricket. Of a local match held in the grounds of his own house his lordship tells a good story. There was a scar city of available talent, with the re sult that Lord Brassey'a footman was pressed into service as umpire. In due course Lord Brassey him self went in, and a local bowler was put on. The second ball he stopped with his leg, and the cry was raised: "How's that?" Everybody looked towards the footman, who, turning to his master, remarked in an apologetic tone: "I'm afraid I must say, 'Not at home,' your lordship!" "Not at home!" Lord Brassey ex claimed. "What do you mean?" "Well, my lord, if you will have it," replied the worried footman, "I'm afraid you are out!"

THE KEY OF THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

THE KEY OF THE GARDEN. By A. G. Greenwood. 1' congratulated myself on getting an empty first at Waterloo. Had 1 been carrying a bucket of pearls of my own and a diamond-encrusted um brella I shouldn't have minded tra velling to Liss with a compartmeiu full of burglars. But what I carried—a sheaf of docu ments in a brown leather satchel— wasn't my own. I was on trial a pro bationer more or less—acting pro tem. (while Fenton was seedy) as private secretary to my second cousin (oncn removed), Lord Calverley, the then Home Secretary. I was, my relatives said, the fool of the family. I'd been plucked for the army and muffed the Bar-final. I had jibbed at the Church, and finally Cal verley had taken pity on me. For a fortnight 1 wrote his ponder ous, verbose and redundant letters. Then I was packed off to Liss with the "Opensliaw" dossier—very confi dential and very important documents relating to the prosecution of Homer Opensliaw, Paul Kufford and the rest of the Stratton Gold Mines gan...

SHAVES FOR GUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

SHAVES FOR GUESTS. Courtship and marriage are events that are hedged about with a multi tude of romantic customs in Sunny Spain. In Lagetcra, for instance, a "Times" Spanish supplement tells ub the "bride groom must have all the male guests shaved at his expense, and must pre sent all the women-folk of the hride's family with richly-embroidered shoes. Each guest in his turn offers the bride a piece of silver, which she. bur ies in an apple stuck on the point of a knife and holds in her hand -while dancing in front of the donor. Amongst the Maragatos the fiancee ought not to speak.to any man except j her lover, failing which she paid a forfeit; and even to-day (as also in some parts of Andalusia) she is fetched from her home by a large cor tege of friends, who fire off a musket as a sign of joy in the Arab fashion. The Spanish lover must be the very soul of patience, for it is not until after years of "walking out" (under the surveillance of the mother or some other trustworthy perso...
