PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS is tne psycnic sense more ucvhujiv-u in. Americans than in Englishmen? The question is raised by the follow ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Hamp stead) to the editor of "The Express":— I have seen Mr G. K. Chesterton's play "Magic," and I am bound to ad mit that it interested and amused me as much as anything I have seen for years. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, I have a strong objection to raise. The play deals with a professional con jurer who, in addition to his trade, is well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, the conjurer is in love with a lady. The tly in the oint ment is the lady's brother, who repre sents all that is crass, cheeky, ignor ant and bumptious, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so im pervious in regard to spiritual matters is said to be that he has been livi...

"The Rainbow Argus" [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

"The Rainbow Arg*us". No Resident of the District CAN AFFORD to do without his District Newa paper. It is the only means by which the people of the district can keep in touch with the affairs in which they are personally interested. The City dailies and weeklies are all very well for tboso who wish to keep posted upon affairs of State and of tho world. But does not a comparatively trifling event in our own neighbourhood loom much larger in our eyes than tho downfall of a nation on the other side of the world? The local newspaper that gives all the news of its own town and District— all tho doings of its people and the hap penings—is therefore tho Newspaper that holds first place in tho regard of all who take a healthy interest in their surroundings. In addition to llio personal claim the district Newspaper possesses it gives very roal advantages from a business standpoint. "Whether in business in the town or on the J and it is of the utmost importance to have a knowledge of what is ...

"The Rainbow Argus" FULFILS ALL THESE REQUIREMENTS i?S A DISTRICT KEV.'SP APEn. Thi'rc is no Business 'that cannot bo Biv.-.cfited by live, judidous advertis ing. In country towns the pnple in business sometimes say, "U'liy should [ advertise ? Everybody knows where I am and what 1 sell." Rut that is an error. It can be proved erroneous by the Railway and Coach manifests ai:d the parcels post lists at any. provincial centre in which the 'lwnl business iron fail to realise the need for keeping the people in touoh with all they li.nve to sell and how they soil it.

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal ekies, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man bo far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that happy combination between 'business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the peac...

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

CHAPTER XV. The family was gathered together in the delightful sitting room at Southfoourne, overlooking the promen ade. Mr. Gordon Price, who had con sumed large quantities of champagne sincc the departure of the bride and bridegroom and the suppression of a telegram, was inclined to restlessness, and had just announced his intention of obtaining a breath of fresh air and nskc-d Philip to accompany. The shadows of evening were deepening. Mrs. Price was on the sofa. Al ready she had complained dolefully of missing Queenie, and had been told by her husband—with Intense irony —not to exhibit sel'flshness. She ought to be thankful that her daughter was happily married to a worthy fellow— Michael, to wit, God 'bless him! Beryl sat in a shadowed corner, thankful that no one as yet had sug gested turning on the lights. When the ne'er-do-well son and the ne'er-do-well father reached the front door, a man on the other side was rubout to ring the bell. When Mr. Price opened the door he found...

The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. IThorne drove his teeth into his ne ther lip. This woman -who ohranii from his touch was his wife. Her hor vor at this moment was of the pro phetic, anticipatory kind. The obliga tions of 'marriage, what marriage meant, had thrust themselves upon her. She was tempted suddenly to fling open the door, throw herself out &nd let the tralfic crush out her life. But the wild impulse yyas caught up an instant later iDy a realisation of its selfishness; the misery and grief, and possibly death, such an act would in flict on others. She must go through with it somehow. "It's a bit early to begin showing off, isn't it?" The words had been stung out of iThorne. "Don't touch me!' I've done all I have done for you and yours, and T suppose you take it for granted I shall go on in the same way in the future—but I mustn't touch you! What do ...

"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

"00 I MUST" call of the antarctic. (By Sir Ernest Shaekleton, in -The Dailv "Yonder the long horizon lies And there, by night and day, The old ships draw to port again. And the young ships sail away; And come I may, but go I must, And if men ask me why, You can lay the blame on the sun and stars, And the white road and the sky." I have often been asked, what can one see in the cold, inhospitable regions of the Antarctic? And, confronted ty a bald question such as that, it is hard to give an answer. The mere l'act that one feels what Keats calls " The dearth of human words, the roughness of moral speech," shows that there must tie an intangible something that draws one back to the wild wastes of the Antarctic. And it is thero, if those of us that know it could only set It down in so many words. Even since we were last there we have' thought and dreamed of the wide stretches of snow and ic-3, the silence of those places where men never trod before, the wonder of the unknown as it roll...

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSMAT [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT "That is one of the moat wonderful things in London," said a country visi tor, as he stood near the dell at the end of the Serpentine a.nd watched a man feeding real wild wood-pigeons with grain and peas. Not only (says "The Daily Telegraph") did the pigeons feed about his feet, but presently one of the boldest among them fluttered up and actually settled on fne feeder's wrist, suffering itself there to be gently stroked on the back as it took the food. The countryman stared in undisguised astonishment. He knew that out in his own plough lands, where the winter-proud wheat is just now spreading a delicate haze of green over the brown acres, and in the leafless beech woods through which you can see for a quarter of a mile, against the twenty yards that would limit the view in summer, these same pigeons are the most cautious of wild fowl. You need the cunning of a Red Indian to get near them in the day time, the patience of a Sioux to way lay them a...
