MORAL REFLECTIONS. Ill order to raise me, it is necessary to be abeve them. j A little word we cannot withdraw i is often life's greatest thorn. To gain " poo dreputation, endeavor to be what you desire to appear. | The way to avoid evil is not by; maiming our passionB, but by compel-; ling them to yield their vigor to our moral nature. We should make it our ckie£ care I neither to ridicule, nor to deplore, nor ] to execrate, but t'o understand the ac tions of mankind. I A mistake made on one's own some times does more for one than a sue-, cess ono o«'es to somebody else. Men's lives are as thoroughly blend- j ed with each other as the air they j breathe: evil spreads as necessarily) as disease. ! To sin against knowledge is a much! greater crime than an ignorant tres-! pass; as the crime which is capable of 110 excuse is more heinous than the fault which admits of a tolerable plea.

THE SONG OF THE KETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 12 August 1914

THE SONG OF THE KETTLE. Sweet are the songs by lovers sung As they the old, old story tell, And sweet the croon the bees among The clover blooms and asphodel. And glad the notes the skylarks trill, At dawn upon their buoyant wings; But dearer, softer, better still, The low, sweet song the kettle sings. How strangely come to us again The pleasant scenes of other (lays, The happy golden moments when We went our simple childish ways; When all life's journey went before And gaily beckoned us with Ere we had left our father's door \ t To go the many weary miles. ; There by the broad, deep fireplace sit j The aged ones with silvered hair; Across each face the flashes flit, | And faded cheeks grow flushed ur.d fair: And strangely mingle smile and tear As memory in fondness brings The old, old days, the while they hoir Tlio low, sweet song the kettle sinc3. The embers throw their ruddy gleam On childish figures blithe and froo That watch the changing glow, and dream Of wondrous things that ...

' This is our chief bane, that we live not according to the light of reason but after the fashion of others. The pretence that women, do not take the initiative is a farce. Why, the whole world's strewn with snares, traps and pitfalls for the capture of men by women.

CHAPTER XXIII. The Bullet of the Assassin. Elsie had only time to run to the table and snatch up the letter of fare well she had written to Eric, wlien the door was opened and the gentle man entered.

CHAPTER XXII. The First Angry Word. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 12 August 1914

CHAPTER XXII. The First Angry Word. No sooner liad Eric slammed the door 5n Elsie's face than the girl, white and trembling, sprang to her feet. With palsied fingers she groped for the handle, and in her agitation it was a few seconds before she was able to open the door. When next she stood 011 the pavement her hus band was nowhere to be seen, and she shivered and staggered back into the hall. For a few moments she stood as one carved in stone; then, wilted and drooping and ready to die, she crept to her room and cast herself upon her bed. But the heart of a young and healthy girl is not so easily broken, and gradually the spirit that was in her began to assert itself. ^She wondered at her own fixity of purpose, forgetting the long line of stern Scottish stock from which she had sprung. One thing was plain to her—she could not re main another night under this roof. She could never look her husband in the face again—after this. But whither? That was the ques tion upon which she now ...

CHAPTER XXI. Six Months After. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 12 August 1914

CHAPTER XXI. Six Months After. For three months Ijjlsie Galbraith was happy beyond words. The long, glowing, glorious days of summer merged into the mellow autumn," and no flower bloomed in the hedge-rows with a greater beauty and grace than this shy, sweet little "Flower o' the Sea." She lived with her- husband in a tiny, white-walled cottage within a stone's throw of her old home, and the soul of Angus Galbraith was over charged with a great thankfulness as he looked at the fresh, young face, suffused with radiant light, and lis tened to the merry peal of laughter which was never far from her lips. Under the sunshine of it he • became a new man. In her happiness his own was found. And 110 young wife over joyed with more cause. Eric was as tender, as devoted, as adoring as any woman could hope for. It was no forced ten derness, uo make-believe adoration, but the genuine welling-up of a heart surcharged with love. ; Eric's -happi ness was uuclouded by regret of the past. Only on rar...

QUESTION OF PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 12 August 1914

QUESTION OF PROFIT. "One can often do more by diplom acy than by brandishing a club," said a man in the smokeroom of a Mid land Counties club recently. "Some years ago my next door neighbors on either side took the vain notion into their heads that keeping fouls was as profitable as running a distillery. They bought buff Orping tons and Rhode Island reds at famine prices, and awaited results with an ear-to-ear smile of optimism. "Their fences were not exactly hen proof, and my garden suffered. One morning my begonia bed was wreck ed, the next my carnations were ruin ed; but, though naturally cross, I re frained from challenging the poultry farmers to a couple of rounds in the woodshed. " 'Here's a joke,' I said to Wiggs, at No. 21, 'Clumpkins at No. 25 has start ed keeping fowls, and doesn't keep his fence in repair. The blessed things get through, and every morning I find about half a dozen new laid eggs de posited in an old top liat in my out house.' And I brought out for bis in s...
