The coach man, who had seen only one man get in, saw two get out, but almost before he could ask himself anew how that was, his attention was all drawai off from this question by the strange con duct of a mastiff—a large, buff watch dog, named "Bull"—which had bound ed from the outer hall, as the carriage entered the drive. Bull had been a great friend of Drayton's, and the mo ment Hartwell appeared at the car riage door, the hound ran to fondle him and be fondled by him; but tufff wav to the carriage the dog stopped short, uttered a yelp, then a growl, and now was apparently about to spring with a bristling neck and no tail between his legs, round the house to the back. The coachman, seei...

COUNTRY SOCIALS. To the Editor of the News. Stn.—I was simply delighted when I read the letter in your last paper as to the manner ih which dances are 'con ducted in country districts, and I think all the girls in this district ought to subscribe a silver coin and liand it to you to purchase a souvenir for dear old .'.'Cctioanut," who has so truthfully pourtray A the inside of our dance rooms.

My sister iio,d a white silk blouse ruined by the dirty hands of the partners she danced with. I would suggest that the number of ladies to socials be regulated so as to avoid so many wallflowers always being present.

Mrs Wicks on Mothers-in-Law. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
Mrs Wicks on Mothers-in-j Law. Of course, there's two aides to every thing', as the boy said -when the doc tor a$ked him if hia Christmas din ner'd been -worth it. Mothers-in-law aren't no exception, though, from the nonsense talked about tnem, you'd Avonder anybody but orphans ever got married. I don't hold, myself, with their liv in' iii the same house with theix child ren-in-law. Every bride should have her own front door to my thinkin'. Wick's mother was alive when we were married, an' he put out a feeler, as you might say, about her comin' to us; but I said firm that I'd only en gaged to marry one person; an' she settled in a town a few miles away, an' I went over to see her twice a week reg'Iar till we buried her com fortable, an' no two women could have been better friends. But I doubt if it would have , work ed out the same if she'd, been opposite one of us at every meal. A bride's got to make her own mis takes, an' the proper person to be on the spot to see them is the man ...
CHAPTER IX. HARTWELL IS IN GREAT PERIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
CHAPTER IX. Meantime, as was said, before, Os wald had slept a night at the "Anchor . Inn" in exile from Pall Mall and from those two rooms behind Piccadilly where his man, Magee, made Irish bulls, and told to Oswald whatever 1 Oswald did not already know of the doings and movements of people in : the great world. Precise",; ivhy he had slept a night ii- a'uijh a "hole," as Oswald called the "Anchor," he could not have told; but he had wished to be on the spot; something very odd in "James's" de nial to him that he knew Letty Barnes, when he certainly did, and in her strange disappearance, without taking any hat with her, stirred up some in terest in Oswald's rather dull mind. It was not like him to be there in a bed of that "Anchor" tavern, but no one is always a fossil and there Os wald was. By the next morning the country side was eagerly talking about the girl; Letty's appearance, dress, ha bits, were described in th« Norfolk papers, with comments on her good name, her "walk and...
For the Children. TWO COLLEGE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
For the Children. rWO COLLEGE BOYS. Two boys left home with just enough money to take them through college, after which they must depeadj^ntiiely upon their own efforts. They at tacked the college problems success ively, passed the graduation, received their diplomas from the faculty, also commendatory letters to a large ship building firm with which they de sired employment. TJshered into the waiting-room of the head of the firm, the first was given an audience. He presented his letterB. "What can you do?" asked the man of millions. " I should like some sort of a clerk " well, sir, I will take your name and address, and should we have any thing of the kind open will correspond with you." Aa he passed out, he remarked'to his waiting companion—"You can go in . and leave your address." The other presented himself and his I ^ '^Wfoat can you do?" was asked. 1 "I can do anything that a green hand can do,vsir," was the reply. The magnate touched a bell which called the superintendent.

People Like Celebrities. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
People Like Celebrities. Some years ago the writer met a posi tively startling representation of Lord Beaconsfield. It -was in a small chand ler's shop in Hoxton, and so close was the resemblance of the old man to the statesman that he was nick-named "Dizzy." He liked it, too, and en couraged the little conceit by having the well-remembered curling lock on the forehead. A frhin edition of Mr. Charles Brad laugh might have been recently seen wandering about the British Museum; and George Grossmith, though he may not be'aware of it, may almost any day meet a duplicate of himself in Bi shopsgate-street. " HeyStapny! Stanny fu ■ shouted 'a friend of fee painter Stanfield. And who should respond to the call but Lord Derby, the one who was Prime Minister? Ha had before been taken for Stanfield. Sunny, too, in sound, is riot unlike Stanley, the name of the Derbys. "When an ordinary man bears some similarity in feature or manner to a celebrity, he usually takes it as a com pliment to be rem...

Electricity. CURIOUS FREAKS OF LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904
Electricity. CURIOUS FREAKS OF LIGHT NING. In a park in one of the Eastern counties of England, there is a large lake. The park contains more trees struck by lightning than the whole of the rest of the estate. Some miles away is a road, called locally the "lightning road," from the frequency with which accidents have occurred there, either to trees^ horses, cattle, ir passengers. In this park there re cently occurred an instance of the ex plosive effect of lightning when trees are struck in certain circumstances not perfectly known. A very tall spruce, probably a hundred feet high, was "exploded from top to bottom into pieces of the size of the wood us ed in making chairs. Every shred of bark was stripped from them, and the wood looked as if it had been shred ded up for firing. A similar instance occurred some years ago, when an oak i in the grove below the front of the ; White Lodge in Richmond Park ex Eloded under lightning shock. The ark flew o2 and eimply disappeared i in small ...

THE CULTURED CROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904
THE CULTURED CROW. Once upon a time a crow sat upon a high branch of a tree with a large hit of cheese in her mouth, when an envious and hungry fox came prowl ing along and espied the choice mor "You are a beautiful bird," said the cunning fox, and yet your grea* beauty is not equal to your marvel lous voice, which charms all the' beasts of the forest. Pray, Mrs Crow, do let,me hear you sing." The crow turned her head to one side, as is the habit with such birds, and looked at Mr Fox.' Then she de liberately ate the cheese, and after clearing her voioe spoke. "Thank you for your compliment, Mr Fox," she said. "If you will wait a minute I will sing for you. I never sing or speak until after dinner since I have been reading ancient fables." The fox did not wait but trotted on his way.
