MAXIMS FOR THE MARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

MAXIMS FOR THE MARRIED. Begin well and end better. If you give and take, no heart will break. Confession of a fault makes half amends. Silence is often the golden key of happiness. Trust in Providence, but keep the kettle boiling. Make no display of the sacrifices you make for each other. Never deceive; confidence once lost can never be wholly regained. Avoid "touchiness," and cultivate cheerfully the give-and-take spirit. Always remember it is better to hear the laughter of children than to see a tidy room. "Did you ever realise anytliing on that investment?" "Oh, yes." "What did you realise on it?" "What a fool I had been." Duty is a power which riS's with us in the morning and goes to rest with us at night. It is co-extensive with the action of our intelligence. It is the shadow which cleaves to us, go where we will, and which only leaves us when we leave the light of life. If women were perfect men would hate them.

DODGING THE BAILIFFS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

DODGING THE BAILIFFS. We hear of smart things done now adays in evasion of the law, but it is a long time since bailiffs were worsted in such a clever manner as told in this story. It happened in the days of the French war, at the close of the last century. There resided in Dublin an elderly gentleman, a colonel in the army, who, though having a decent fortune, was encum bered with more debts than he was able to immediately discharge. A number of writs were consequently taken out against him, and, as he was known to be exceedingly shy, the most ingenious bailiffs were employ ed to get him into their clutches. Various artifices were employed to entrap the old soldier, but they were all frustrated by the vigilance and ad dress he displayed. While this trial of skill was going forward, the bail iffs were by some means informed that the old gentleman had a son who was every day expected home from the Bast Indies. All their en deavors for getting admittance to his house had hitherto fail...

CHAPTER II. The Figure by the Gate. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

CHAPTER II. The Figure by the Gate. Tee butler, seeing something; was wrong, had by this time come out. "The lady's not come, Mr. Mur rell," said James, in whose face ac quired stolidity had given place to natural mystification. "What!" exclaimed Judd from the box, as the butler, with knit brows, stood at a loss looking into the car riage which contained nothing but a lady's gold-topped umbrella and a leather-covered jewel-case. "You haven't brought the Coun tess," he said severely. "You've never driven off without her?" By this time Judd had grasped the fact that the lady • was not there. "Well, I never!" he cried, almost pit eously. "She was in the broom right enough when I started from Fulbor ough station, and I've come straight home. What in the world can have become_ of her?" "I must go and tell the guv'nor," Murrell declared, in the tone of a man who announces an ungrateful duty. "You are sure you didn't start without the lady?" ~ "I'd take my oath to that," was the decisive r...

CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

CRITICISM. • Criticism is so easy a task that anyone, no matter how unskilled, can do it without effort. The man in the gutter can criticise the saint—but that does not lift him an inch out of the gutter. .W&en Thales, away back in classic times, was asked what was most difficult, he/replied, "To know one's self"; but when he was asked what was most easy, he answered, "1T0 advise another"

FORWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

FORWARD. let certain mountain passes of Aus tria are found sign-boards bearing, in Germian, the words "Return forbid den." These roads are so narrow and precipitous that there is not room for two carriages abreast; therefore, to attempt to retrace one's path might bring disaster upon one's self and upon those coming after. Once having started there, you must keep straight on until you have reached your destination. Torday's pressing duties call us forward, not backward. There are others coming after; we must push ahead for their sakes and for our own. Austria is not the only place where, there is need for the warning, "Return forbidden,"

CYRIL DANE'S SILENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

CYRIL DANE'S SILENCE* ! By H. J. Bickle. To the man who stumbled on with weary, faltering steps through _ the deepening shadows of mingled twi light and mist it seemed all unreal, this house that suddenly came within his vision, all its windows ablaze with light, like some glittering fairy pal ace. Was it only yesterday since he had made his wild dash for liberty, break ing away from the gangs working in the quarries and, under cover of fog, effecting his escape with an almost in credible success—an escape that had been prompted by a mad impulse to taste freedom once more, for it was only for one brief, hunted hour? The rifles of the civil guard had rung out, but no single bullet had touched him in his desperate headlong flight And so far he had baffled pursuit The night iad been passed in an empty barn that had provided proven der as well as shelter, for he had come upon some apples stored away—de licious food for a famished man. And the straw on which he had passed some hours of b...

The Empty Brougham. The story of tile amazing mystery surrounding certain tragic happen ings which occurred some years ago in a quiet English village, and—so far-reaching were they—went near to involving the Ministry of the day, has never been given to the world, al though a few men and women who necessarily came into the secret have whispered it to their friends, and these presently dressed up the extra ordinary facts, according to their half-knowledge and imagination, for the edification of country-house smok ing-rooms, and by way of proclaim ing their own enviable position as being in the "know" of contemporary secret history, political and social.

THE SCAPEGOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915

THE SCAPEGOAT. By Phyllis Martin. With, angry resolution the old man stretched out a hand to the bell, hut before he could ring a fist shot out ; to the back of his head with a sicken- , ing sound and he dropped. Peter Austin stood for a few mo ments in the attitude from which he had struck the blow, with a sudden . look of wild regret, then he fell on his knees beside the still form, a vague, indefinable fear filling his pale blue ; eyes. J No movement! He shook the limp ! body frenziedly, then he bent his head. I Not the faintest heart-beat stirred to ■ alleviate his anguish. ' j "Father—father!" he burst out at ; last, chokingly. "I didn't mean it!— ( I didn't mean it!" j Tragic terror dilated his eyes as he stared in dreadful fascination; his twitching fingers buried themselves with a frantic clutch in his tawny hair, and he remained transfixed, powerless to withdraw that horrified gaze or , move a limb; unconscious of his perilous situation, conscious only of a white, set face,...

The Skipton Football club sent a team to Linton on Saturday, and a match with the locals wa3 played on the reserve. It was a very one-sided game, the visitors failing to score a point till the last quarter, when they got a gqa,l and one behind. The scores weref Linton, 6 goals 9 bhds ; Skipton, '1 goal 1 bhd. E. Sandow captained the Linton team, and W. Cairns was the Skipton captain. Sandow, E. Ching, Bonthorne, W. Grigg, 0. Ball, and one or two others played well for Linton, and Cairns.'Wilkie, Grist, and Millest were prominent amongst the visitors. The Linton ruck men were too good for their opponents, and scored over them repeatedly. Two or three juniors were tried out in the Linton team, and showed some promise, The Linton and Scarsdale teams were to meet at Linton to-day for the first association game, but Scarsdale are unable to come, and have forfeited the match.

AS WE FORGIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915

AS WE FORGIVE. By Ramsay Calder. "Look here, Barclay, you are not playing tlie game. "We all know that Miss MacLaren is practically engag ed to Oliphant, and yet you are con stantly with her, wooing her quite openly, quite as if Oliphant did not exist! Your behavior at the regi mental ball was little short of dis • graceful." And Captain Douglas glared angrily at the laughing subaltern as he spoke, for Captain Oliphant was his closest friend, and it cut him to the quick to see how he was suffering at uie hands of a brother officer and the little society butterfly who did not know the worth of the man who wor shipped the very ground on which she trod. "All is fair in love and war, sir," answered Barclay, lightly. "If Oli phant can't hold the girl's affection that is his misfortune, not my fault! And why should she waste the bet ter part of her life waiting for a man who may never be able to marry, or if he dees will take his wife into a constant struggle to make ends meet? 1 can marr...

MEDALS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915

MEDALS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. Ia the Army supreme bravery in either an officer or a soldier is re warded with the Victoria Cross, and both are entitled to put the letters "V.C." after their names. But for I what might be called a second-class act of valor the officer gets the Dis tinguished Service Order (entitling him to place "D.S.O." after his name), and the soldier gets the distinguished conduct medal. The initials of the latter do not appear after a soldier recipient's name, but it brings him a gratuity of £20 on discharge, or, if ! he prefers it instead, an addition of 6d. a day to his pension. •{There is, in addition, a silver medal for meritorious service, which may .be awarded to any soldier above the rank of corporal who has been select ed for an annuity for "long, valuable and meritorious service, or who has been mentioned in despatches for val uable and meritorious service during a campaign." The number of recipi ents of this decoration is limited by 'the sum allowed for an...
