Poor pa! [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 November 1911

"Ynii have neted In a decidedly un- gentlemanly way, Augustus." Thus spoke the father of Augus- tus, when he found his son had stolen jam from the larder. "It may not seem a very great crime to you, Augustus," continued his parent, "but little things lead to big things. Tho child ls 'father to the man,' my boy, and the little petty theft of to-day may be the prent crime of to-morrow. Resilles, Augustus, you were disobedient. You were forbid- den to take jam, and you took it. Dis- obedience, Augustus, ts the root of all evil. Remember that, my boy, and yon will rise in tho world to east off the slur of commonplace duplicity." As his father paused for breath Au- gustus turned a beaming face to lils mother.

She Scored, Once they were sweethearts, hut they quarrelled, and, as usual in such eases, each wished to show to all in general, and to each other In particu- lar, that they wore not, and never had been, aware of each other's exist- ence. One flay the young man had to make a business call on her father, on behalf of his employer, and, as luck would have lt, she answered the bell. The young man did not lose his head, "Í beg pardon," he said, politely. "Miss Robinson, I think? Is your father In?" Without showing tho least sign that she had ever seen him before, the maiden replied: "No, ho's not, I'm sorry to say. Did you wish to see him personally?" "Yes; but It will do to-morrow. I will rall again. Thank you. Good afternoon." As he reached the bottom step, she asked, casually: "1 bog your pardon; who shall I say called?"

AN IRISH LEGEND. Among tho oldest families In Ireland aro the Gormanstons. It Is said that when tho head of the house dies and for some days boTore the foxes leave all the neighboring coverts and col- lect at tile door of the castle. This strange phenomenon (writes E. T. Humphries in tho ''National Review") occurred when the twelfth Viscount Gormanston died In 18G0, and again In 1S7G, when the thirteenth Viscount shook off this mortal coil. Tho four- teenth holder of the title died In 1007; Inquiry was then made to test thc truth or otherwise of tho weird le- gend.

WEDLOCK SHOULD NOT BE SLAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 November 1911

WEDLOCK SHOULD NOT BE SLAVERY. By Laura J. Libbey. Many people look upon matrimony with a certain amount of distrust. They aro wont to imagine wedlock cither mastery or slavery. < Those who hnvo this notion know not true Ideal affection. Love crowns Its object in a wreath of roses-not ono of briars. The despotic \pvcr makes a tyrannical husband; tho girl who weds him is either a slnve to lils whims and caprices or she leads a continuous life of contention and war- fare. The kernol of love ls self-denial. He who truly loves does not make a slave of tho object beloved, but he raises her to the throne of a queen in his heart. Tho wife who truly loves will not mako the partner of her bosom a 3lave to her capricious whims. Many wed who were never intended for either love or wedlock. Their ex- perience, or view's, cannot lie taken as a picture of wedded bliss-or its un- happiness. A house divided against Itself ennnot stand. When husband and wife are In constant turmoil In stri...

THE PRODIGAL'S .v-INTERVENTION. His farewell night; hts Inst ap- pearance. Waiting In the wings tor his cue, the thought hammered itself Into Archer Lesley's brain; and once more lt swept over him, like a salt sea that lett waters of bitterness behind, when tho audience greeted him with a wel- come that sounded through the groat building, echoing from stalls to crowd- ed gallery. Not a soul knew that this was to be his final London appearance. His exit was to be n Bilent one, with no telling line ringing from his Hps. Ah, well, It was useless quarrelling with tho Inevitable. The voice of Fate hud spoken; the stars had cast their Bpeil; the web was spun, Detter this than to remain and await ruin-ruin In its uglest aspect, carrying with It loss of honor and name and standing-loss of all. His drifting thoughts centred on the girl ho had hoped to call his own. Perhaps it was the recolleqtlon of her that lent such a note of moving sad- ness to his voice-the voice that was trained to thri...
