THE TURMOIL Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. and Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
THE TURMOIL By PAUL URQUiAtrT. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. and Melbourne. All Rights RIeserved. CKIPTER I. A dirty wad of cotton waste pressed close between my teeth prevented me from giving expression to my feel Ings. To Judge from the exceedingly un pleasant taste. I should say that be fore doing duty as a gag, this material had been used for some months to mop up oil inl a maclhine-room. I had no palate for oils, however; I could not guarantee to distinguish whether the oleaginous fluid that exuded from the waste and trickled downi my throat. was vegetable or mineral. I know it was infernally disagreeable. Fortunately, I had retained my eye glass throughout the ridiculously brief struggle with the five masked bri gands. It enabled me to preserve some shred of self-respect. The very concentration of tile lmuscles neces sary to keep it in my eye helped me to retain that look of dignified calm which becomes a gentleman who is about to shake hlan...
"A HERO OF FRIENDSHIP." [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
"A HERO OF FRIENDSHIP."' It was Rossetti, his great friend, who thus once described Mr. Theodore Watts-Dunton, the famous poet, novel Ist and critic. Feelings of almost bro therly love existed between Watts Dunton and Tennyson, Browning, James Russell Lowell, George Borrow, Millafs, Holman Hunt, and Swilnburne, to mention but a few of the famous literary brotherhood. Indeed, the in timacy which existed between Swin burne and Watts-Dunton, which might well be described as one of the most bea'iiful frien-dships in tile history of literature and art, led to their being referred to as 'David and Jonathan." For many years they were never se parated. They lived together at the Pines, Putney, took their summer holi days In company, and practically spent every working hour together, discuss ing literary matters and affairs. All Swinburne's papers were left .to Mr. Watts-Dunton, and It was hoped that he would write the famous poet's biography. Like many other literary men, Mr. WVatts-Dunton ...

The Intelligent Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
The Intelligent Horse. A farmer was having trouble with his horse. It would start, walk twen ty yards or so, then stop for a few seconds and start again, to repeat the performance. After watching this ex hibition for some time a friend over took the farmer during one of the horse's long waits. "What's the mat ter? Is it lame?" he asked. "Not as I knows of," replied the farmer cross ly. "Then what's wrong with it?" "Oh, he's so feared I'll say tWhoa!' and he won't hear me," replied the far mer, "he stops every now and then to listen."
A Touching Appeal. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
A Touching Appear. A literary critic called one day to see a friend who was trying hard to establish a reputation as a novelist. "Read that!" said the novelist, push ing a manuscript into his guest's hand. "It's my latest story, and I want you to tell me what you think of it" A few minutes later he was surpris ed to see the visitor wiping tears from his eyes. "My dear chap, this is really the most patheteic thing you have ever done," said the critife. "What!" gasped the author. "I wrote it as humorously as I could!" He looked at the manuscript "Oh, I see; it's my mistake! I've given you the wrong thing. That is my letter to the Income-Tax Commissioners asking for a rebate."

AN IHTERESTIHC LETTER. In our last issue we published a letter from Mr Arthur Green wood giving his impressions of the Sussex show. On Monday last we received another letter from Mr Greenwood. dated London, 29th July. in which he gives interestino particulars of his visit to the Royal Yorkshire show. "This show is held at various centres," he says, "at Bradford this year, Hull next, and Blrminharm the following year. It certainly is a big show ar.d well arranged. Everythinmg is carefuly planned and the scew:ards seem most attentive to their onorous duties. I did not hear f a single h tch.

BIRD SAGACITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
BIRD SAGACITY. A frienc residing oan the shotre of L.och IJinnh telLs me. s;ys a cor respondent, of a curious instance of bird sagacity that came under his observation la.t year. in a neigh bour's garden a pair of redatarts had built their nest and hatched out their young. Before the birds were fully fledged. my friend happen ed to visit theowner of the gar den and to examine the nest and its contents. The fledglings num bered four, and, on handling thenm. he discovered that one of them had its leg newly broken. How the accident had occurred, it was impos sible to conjecture, but the fact remained that the unlucky birdl would not be able to fend for it self as soon as the other members of the brood. My correspondent ex pressed a desire to take the cripple home with him, so that he might provide for its well-being until the injured limb would heal. This ar rangement was agreed to, and the chick was deposited on a bed of dry grass within a snrmall basket. The receptacle was taken into...

ROMANTIC STORY OF A LADY'S FORTUNE. Why Miss Ryland Left Mr. Alston Smith £300,000. Beh;nd the recent announcement of the death of Mr. Charles Alston Smith-Ryland. of Barford Hall, War wickshire, lies a story of disappointed love which resulted in an Immense fortune ?being left to him a quarter of a century ago. Mr. Alston Smith Rvland was the only son of the late Mr. Henry Smith, who in 1845 and again In 1851 was Mayor of Birming ham.

It is said they were anxious to be married, but that Miss Ryland's father put his veto upon the matel, having in view a more ambitious a - iiance, which, however, never camr'e to pa...

HOW TO BE HAPPY THOUGH SEASICK. Do You Suffer From the "Ocean Blues"? [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
HOW TO BE HAPPY THOUGH SEA SICK. Do You Suffer From the "Ocean Blues"? Writing of an attack of sea-sick nos., .Mark Twain once said that first he feared lie was golng to die, and then lie feared he wasn't. But Mark Twain was a pretty good sailor usu ally, and was accustomed to regard silipmnnat..s who suffered from the "ocean blues" with unrepressed glee. "f tlhere is one thing in the worli that w'vl make a man peculiarly and 'n'suffrably se f-conceited," he wrote, "it is to hiave his stomach behave it elf rhe tirst day at sea,. when nearly .ll his cIomrade3 are sea-sick.

A Seal Story. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
A Seal Story. -4----- The following article on " Seals as pets" may be of interest, says a correspondent. While shoreshoot ing on one of the Orkney islands, I suddenly stumbled on a young seal which hadl evidently been enjoying a nap. Being anxious to capture it alive and uninjured, I was at a loss how to proceed until I re called some of the reminiscences of a near neighbour, an old Davis-Strait man. Profiting by this recollection I picked up a handy tangle-stalk and, ' ever so lightly, stlruck the seal over the snout. The effect was as tonishing. With a tremulous move ment of the entire body the animal rolled over on its back, the fore flippers waving pathetically for a moment as if deploring the inhu minanity of man. Catching sight of an old sack washed uip on the beach I then pulled it hastily over the head of the stunned anirnal, and slinging the burden on my hack soon had the satisfaction of feeling that my cap tive was very much alive. For over a week I kept him anchored by o...
