CHAPTER XVIII. CONTRAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 13 September 1892

CHAPTER XVIII. CONTRAST. " Lady Theobald will put a stop to it," was the general remark. " It will certainly not occur again." Tbis was said upon the evening of the first gathering upon Miss Belinda's grass plot, and at the same time it was prophecied that Mr. Barold would soon go away. Bat neither of the prophecies proved true. Mr. Francis Barold did not return to London, and, strange to say, Lucia was seen, again and again playing croquet with Octavia Bassett, and was even known to spend evenings witli her. Perhaps it might have been that an appeal made by Miss Belinda to her ladyship had .caused her to allow of these things. Miss Belinda had, in fact made a private call upon my lady, to lay her case before lier. "I feel so very timid about everything,"] she said, almost with tears, "and so fearful of trusting myself, that I, rAaV/r find it quite a trial*.. Tbe_ dearWuud has such a kind -"ftSart-I assure you she has a kind heart, dear Lady Theobald, and is so innocent of any inten...

"You are very like Aunt Belinda," she said. He drew himself up. He did not think there was any point o£ resemblance at all between himself ana Miss Belinda. She went on without observing his move ment. " You think everything means something, <ir 5s of some importance. You said that just as Aunt Belinda says ' What will they think ? It never occurs to me that they trill think at all. Gracious! Why should they?" " i'ou will find they do." lie said.

Original Poetry. WHY? [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 13 September 1892

WHY? Why do you sigh ? Life is too brief for sighs; Life lauglis and flashes by Blushes and flies. Why do you weep ? Life is not meet for tears. Try love your youth to keep From pain and fears. I weep and sigh For other lives than minp ; For hopes that breathe to die In sobs divine. My wistful eyes Brim o'er with tears so deep ; My heart's hid core with sighs. For Life I weep ! Hockhampton, Aug. It.
