THE STONE IN THE ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
i THE STONE IN THE ROAD. I There once lived a king who ruled his subjects so wisely anti sn well that his fame spread near and far. »' But everything that wanted doing 5 was left by the people for someone :clse to do, and thc king decided to .teach them a lesson. f Now, it happened that one of the 'roads that led to the town passed "through a narrow cutting. To this ; spot the king went late one night, ; and scooped a hollow right in the 'i middle of the cart-tracks. When he [ had got it deep enough lie lined the ; sides and the bottom with pebbles. ! Then from the folds of his cloak he [ took a small bundle, and placed it lin the hole. Going to the side of ¡the road, he, with no little labor and j difficulty, loosened a large stone, ïwhich he carried to (lie hole he had \ made in thc road. There he dropp *etl it, so that it completely covered i the opening. I Next morning a farmer driving j his t art came that way. I "Ah," he cried, "the laziness of I those people is terrible! Hele...

The Mysterious Sword. "Next morning in reply to my tjuestions my landlady told me the packet had been handed in without any message.

A Woman's Sin [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
A Woman's Sin The Deloiaine Town Hall was fairly filled on Wednesday night last when the Woods Williamson Dramatic Company staged that emotional play of Hall Caine's, ''A Woman's Sin' in which Mr. Woods and Miss Williamson apptartd as Pete and Kate, In these characters the well known artists have made brilliant successes in most of the leading cities of the wotld. The artist from the outset were greeted with cheeis and although the nature of the play was not one, on account of its sadness, to bring foi th much applause, it was well appreciated by all. The fine acting ol Miss Will- iams'- u and Mr. Woods was a treat which far excetded the wildest imagination of the audience, and during that sad put where Pete re- turns heme to find his wife missing, the whole audience was perfectly spell bound. Such plays as" these i are few and far between and the I success achieved by the various artist speaks well for the company.

THE CHINESE ENIGMA. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
THE CHINESE ENIGMA. To lier death thc notorious Chi- nese Empress Tzu ITsi remained an enigma to thc world. It is very in- teresting, therefore, to find much about her in "China Under the Empress Dowager." Tho authors, Messrs. J. O. P. Uland and E. Backhouse, had access to the diary of a Manchu nobleman, kinsman of the Empress : From tho diary of Ching Shan we obtain an estimate of Tzu Ilsi's character, formed by one who had enjoyed for years continual nfipnr tunities of studying ber at close quarters-an estimate which was. and is, cniibimeil by Ino popular verdict, tho common report of the tea-houses and market-places cf tho capital. Despite her swiftly-chang- ing and uncontrolled mouds, her childish lack of moral sense, her unscrupulous lovo of power, her fierce passions and revenges, Tzu Hst was no more the savage monster described by "Wen Ching" than she was the benevolent fashion plate Lady Bountiful of tho Ameri- can magazines. She was simply a woman of uuuaual courage and vit...

A Complete Story. THE WAYS OF MAN. (By Arthur W. Marchmont.) "And I say you have Heil." Jack C'obbetfc's handsome face was stern and set, and his steady bluo eyes flashed angrily as he spoke. "Elsie's photograph proves it," ho added, pointing a strenuous finger nt the likeness uf a pretty girl -tho largo silver frame of which was the most conspicuous ornament on tho mantelboard of Richard Till- man's comfortably furnished, low ceilingcd farmhouse parkmr.

Pulman winced at tho opitbet, paling under Ilia tan, and frowned heavily, as his eyes slowly followed thc other man's gestures. "I won't take that from any man, not e^cn from you, Jack, old friends as wo arc." "Friends!" cried Cobbott bitter- ly. "Friends! When you've gone back on your word as you have !

A PERSIAN PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
A PERSIAN PARTY. Mite Ella C. Sykes, author of "Pordia and Its People," was able, during a three years' stay in Persia, to observe tho Court of tho Shah (tho recently-deposed Monarch) at close quarters. The scene was essen- tially Oriental: Thu writer had tho privilege of being present at a party given by ono of tho Royal favourites, and tho richness of tho ungraceful cos- tumes and tho profusion of the jewels that adorned the crowds of Court huhes who woro invited, were a wonderful sight. All were inter- ested in their European guests, lingering their furs, eyeing their clothes, and trying to engage them in conversation, during which liand somcly-clad women servants handed round relays of tea and sweet, meats. Then the Shah came in, and the busy hum of talk ceased entirely, every fair Persian preening herself, and doing her best to catch tTïc monarch's eye as he strode across tho room. However, ho paid no atten- tion to any of his countrywomen, but was eager to inspect the foreign ...

MEA CULPA—A MEMORY OF CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 1 April 1911
MEA CULPA-A MEMORY OF CHINA. Sonic years back, while travel- ling for amusement in the East, I found myself, writes "Old Mead" in the "Field," with two friends in China when matters were disturb- ed and when Europeans were not very welcome to the Chinese. It was in Shanghai one Sunday when somebody proposed we should ex- plore the native city. At the time I had a clever Tartar boy in my employment. The three of us took care to let it be known at our hotel where we were going, and I took the boy to act as guide. We went first through the part of the city where the population is densest, and as. the larger part of these natives live in sampans, or boats, moored close together along thc river bank, there is room for lively outbreaks between the people who live ashore and afloat. We happened to find a regular battle royal going on, i i which thousands on each side used guns, knives, swords, and all kinds of weapons, resulting in serious loss of life. While we were looking on the Chinese...
Random Readings. A REMARKABLE MONASTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 1 April 1911
! Random Readings. ] I -.- I I A REMARKABLE MONASTERY. I The following interesting extract is from an article, "A Week with the Monks of Walamo," by Ernest Young ll.Sc, P.R.G.S.. in "Travel and Exploration" : Walamo is a small island, or, to speak more correctly an archipelago of forty small islands, in Lake La doda. On five or six of these is- lands are situated .the buildings of a celebrated Russian monastery, lit- tle known to the English traveller, though within easy reach of St. Pet- ersburg. My own visit to the mon- astery was made, however, from Sertavala, a town in Finnish terri- tory, which stands on the northern shore of thc lake, in a bay so close- ly surrounded by hills that it appears to be a lake itself. The establishment consists of thirty priests, who arc not monks; fifteen deacons, who play an im- portant part in thc services of the Greek Church ; and 250 monks. These, with the novices and lay- men, make a total of from 1,200 to 1,300. There are other smaller monast...

For Young Folks. THE WIND BROOM, It happened that the Old Woman «.Im sweeps the sky with lier Wind Broom put it down for a few mom- ents while she had a chat with the Man in the Moon. A lively young Elf came Hying along, playing leap- frog over the clouds, and, as luck would have it, he espied the Wind Broom where it stood. "Oh, ho, herc's fun!" cried^the Elf, and he seized thc Broom, and then and there flew off with it. The Old Woman swept the sky, but he meant to sweep the earth. His ro- guish face was full of merriment at tlie thought. lt was a large Broom, and at first he could not manage it very well, being only a small Elf. But when he lound out the way, what sport it'was 1 Swish I The people in thc streets had to cling to the lamp- posts, while the babies were nearly blown out of their perambulators.
