III. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914

III. Oblivious of Dove's Walk. Glooms bury, and the bereaved Sally, Bill Moggins set himself to enjoy life over again. He had letters regularly from Henry Williams-in fact, a bit too regularly. Every letter contained a request for a small loan, which Bill had to pay up as cheerfully as he could. Sal, he was informed, was working away, and was seemingly in nowise troubled that she had become a \vidoiv. That indifference nettled Bill, but, as he said, "Yer can't pet yer liberty without payin' somethink fur it." After breakfast one morning Bill, happy and hilarious went forth into the Park for a quiet read. The show was touring the North and they were doing famously. He opened his pa per and began to read the pages. Suddenly he came upon something that made him open his eyes a bit wider and emit a low, thoughtful whis tle. He read it again and again. Finally he spread the journal across his knees and began to :hink volcanic ally. Once more he took up the paper, looked a long time at it...

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. By C. T. Capper. Artemus Graydon, editor and owner owner of take "Scrutineerswung round on his revolving-chair to greet his visitor. The latter politely ac cepted the implied invitation to be seated. Grasped in his hand, Mr. Lionel Bur ton, stockbroker and company promo ter, carried a copy of tliat week s "paper," and Graydon's eyes twinkled as he noted its deep green cover. It indicated in itself the purpose of i Mr. Burton's visit to the offices of that influential financial publication. Gray don had made his journal a power in the land. Commendation in its col umns spelt success-an adverse judg ment usually portended failure. Mr. Lionel Burton had tacitly admit ted this when a "par" in that week s number relating to himself caught his eye. It mattered little that the cri ticism levelled at his latest scheme was at the bottom unfounded. The in vesting public would not stop to dis criminate between himself and oth ers whom Graydon had run foul of. They would sh...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914

II. Long months of reflection convinc ed Lionel Burton that he had been foolish in flinging down the gage of battle to Graydon openly. A frontal attack on a powerfully-entrenched enemy might be grandly quixotic; but it was not war. He discovered that the rules of the game were elastic, al lowing many variations in tactics, and that men judged by results only. As he digested these cynical truths, as similating them to the hard facts of life, he found that back of all his ob servations lay an inflexible desire to get even with liis enemy. By slow stages he had drifted to New York, where he allowed his for mer clean shaven countenance to sport ah iron-grey growth of beard. Then chance, twelve months later, flung him on speaking terms with Graydon. It happened in the corridor of a fashionable hotel, where the great men merely inquired of Burton the lo cality of the manager's oflice. The desired information was. given readil^-almost before recognition be came definite; but the unexpected...

Not So Slow After All. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914

Not So Slow After All. At one time a German university developed the mania for conferring honorary degrees, and a Scottish doc tor named Mclntire, who had obtained his degree by diligent labor, becamo disgusted. I-Ie sent a poiite note to the faculty asking them to bestow a degree upon his- servant. The doctcj was a great man, and the jocose na ture of the request was not suspect ed, so the parchment was accordingly sent him. After acknowledging its receipt, the. physician added that, since they wore so kind as to give his servant a degree, it would add to his obligation if they would confer one upon his fav orite horse. But the faculty, the joke once fairly scented, rose to the occa sion. "We are obliged," they wrote, "re spectfully to decline granting so dis tinguished a favor. We have searched tho college records for a precedent, but the only one to be found lies in the fact that some years ago a de cree was conferred upon an ass named Mclntire."

They «-'ere tolling eacf: other (lie merits of their birds, which were to go in a show, and both were sure of winning the prize. At last one of them sail in a sorrowful tone: "Ah, Jim, it I had only got the one I had last week I should not have nmeh trouble in winning, but I had taught him to sing 'Home, Sweet Home' so much to perfection that the tears rolled down his breast till he got exhausted, fell off his perch, and was drowned in his own tears." "Oil," said Jim, "that's nothing. One night my bird was singing 'The Village r.lacksmith' so true that the sparks Hew out of his eyes, sot fire to the cagt and. before we had time to put the fbmf.s out the poor little wretch was roasted to death."

II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914

II. Bill Moggins, as we have seen, was a circus acrobat. Some of his many friends were wont to suggest that he was an acrobat 111 more ways than one. Henry Williams, and Bill strode along in the direction of the river, keeping as much as possible to the meaner streets and allpys. They en tered a pawnbroker's shop at a cor ner, and soon emerged from it. Bill now bore a parcel under his arm. When they came to the river they walked along the brnk, taking every precaution to obscure themselves as they went. After a full hour of this desultory progress, they halted at what seemed to be a likely spot for the end in view. There was not a soul to be seen anywhere. W.th his usual agility, Bill diverted himself of coat and vest, col lar and tie. These, along with liis hat, were placed in a heap on the fjiny wall. From the parcel he tnok some simi lar apparel, and in a fow moments was again fully dressed. A police man at this moment, to the plotters' consternation, mads his appearance round a ...
