One day the small boy of the house was looking at her very intently at the table. * What is it, Johnny V alie inquired, graciously, as do those who are receiving undeserved benefactions. . ' No part of your head gone, is there ?' he asked. 4 Of course not. Why do you ask such a queer question ?' * 'Cause I heard mamma say you were eatin' your head off, and I want to see if there was any marks of it.' The lady took the hint and left next morning, while Johnny is doing a week's penance for letting his tongue wag.

DONT ALWAYS TELL TUE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

DONT ALWAYS TELL TUE TRUTH. ' Editora don't always tell the truth.'A friend of ours announced in his paper : ' All contributions written on both sides of the paper will be thrown into the waste-paper basket.* The other day he got a letter from his best girl. We saw it. It was written on both cides, crossed and re-crossed, and a P.S. gracefully adorned the edges. It did not enter the basket. Oh, no ! He waded through it, smiled over it, hugged it, and would have done so again had not the "devil" banged in and yelled " more copy."

The Lake of Blood. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

The rab« of Blood, Every jiolar expedition and whaling .vessel which visits the Baffin Bay region puts in at Taureke Bank, so as to allow explorers and seamen to visit the cele brated I^ake of Blood. Of it the author of " My Summer in the North" says : *' It is a lake of considerable extent, lying only a few feet above the level of the sfia, and appears of a deep dark blood-red. . . . Careful examination proved, however, that the water itself was as pure and clear as possible ; the red effect being due to the fact that the bottom and sides of the lake, as well as the few stones which were scattered about tn It, were coated most perfectly ! with the red snow plant. In some placos where the water had evaporated tl»e withered red plants on the soil and neks looked exactly like dried spots of blood." (

Short Story. A Gift from the Waters. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

Short Story. A Gift from the Waters. There was every sign of a big " blow." The widow Ruddell shuddered as she heard the boom of the surf. The sea had taken her husband ; then Enoch, her darling, her " baby," had gone next, lost off the China coast Sam Ruddell clumped his way in with ! a smile of contentment on his honest face. " Whew !" he said. " It's going to be a regular terror of a night. Getting colder every minute." Such a smart, good son had never been given to a woman, the widow thought more than once that evening. And then there ran a thread across her mind that it was no more than she deserved of Providence. Presently Sam rose, and went upstairs to bed. It seemed to Mrs. Ruddell that she had only fairly closed her eyes when there came a tremendous rap at the door. She sprang from her bed in a panic. She could see the faint gleam of early daylight through her window, and she knew that there must be something wrong. . " What is it ?" she called. "Tell Sa-n to come out. Ther...
