The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE 31. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER III. England-in all the glorious greenery of a sunny May. The Grange, as the late General Halldare's old-fashioned country house in a home county was called, was ablaze with early roses, which climbed over the wide lattices of the lower storey of the south frontage, to festoon themselves about the white curtained dormer windows of the low ceiled bed-chambers. An atmosphere of peace lingered about the square lawns and straight, gravelled walks with their pergolas of thick-foliaged creepers, beyond which was an old, low wall, where a peacock perched and spread his tail in the sun shine, a peahen meekly ambling on the grass at his feet. But within the house, in the old-world boudoir, the room sac red to its mistress, the late General's only dhughter, there was no sign of the restfulness without. A beautiful woman-dark, stately was pacing the floor, watch in hand. with wide shoulders, yet a slender ...

I had been hath ing the child near the fire. atnl had just gone out to empty the water when I heard screams. I rushed in and found that he had pulled the ket tle over and fearfully scalded his neck. The skin was dreadfully blistered and inflamed, and the poor child's agony was dreadful to witness. At the Prince Alfred Hospital they lanced the blisters and dressed the scalds with an oil.

SENTIMENTAL CHARITY DEAN'S CRITICISM [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 30 January 1914
SENTIMENTAL CHARITY DEAN'S CRITICISM The problem of pain and suffering, considered In connection with Chris tlan charity, was the subject of an ad dress by the Dean of St Paul's (Rev. Dr. Inge) at the annual meeting of the St Saviour's, Southwark, Commit tee of the Charity Organisation So ciety, held yesterday under the presi dency of Sir William Chance (reports the "Daily Telegraph" of December 11). One of the most prominent fea tures in our present-day life, he said, was the revolt against pain. But pain was part of God's ordering of the world, meant to show us our faults and blunders, and as a punishment for our ignorance of His laws so far as they concerned us. There was no lesson which we in England needed more to learn than that evil was wrought by want of head as well as want of heart-that pre vention, which called for a cool head, was better than cure, which appealed to the warm heart. It would be much more difficult for a vicar to collect money from his congregation for can...
