III. In Perth, Macdonald found his fears amply confirmed, so to London he went, angry with himself that he had been so easily hoodwinked, 'but grimly determined to bring Blakeley to book. During the voyage he gained much useful knowledge of mining finance, and the working of the stock markets generally, through the'medium of the ship's library. So, when one fine after I noon he pushed open the ornate swing door which udmitted to the office of the company, he was fully primed for a stormy interview with Blakeley. He found himself in a large, lofty apart ment, furnished with highly-polished and obviously expensive office fittings. To his left was a glass-panelled door, labelled "Private," douDtless the en trance to Blakeley's sanctum. The sole occupant of the room was a young lady, dressed neatly in black, who was seated at a table with a typewriter in front of her anil a tele-1 pliQiie-receiver at her elbow. At! John's entrance she laid aside a news paper she had been reading and re ...

SUCCESS. Success shall come to him who waits; But not to him of folded hands— ,rl'o him who hopes, but hesitates, And simply by the roadside stands. Success is wou by effort strong, By unremitting, earnest stress. The way- it travels seems o'er-long? To haste its course, go, meet Suc cess! Why waste the time to drift and swing And watch the careless billows roll, Relying that some chance will bring You somehow some day to your goal? I-'ar 'better that, sails spread the while To catch the faintest favoring breeze, You man tiie sweeps, and mile by milo You still advance across the seas. Go. meet Success! For not enough That you should patience have alone. Up signal! On! Though fields be rough, 'Tis those shall reap who first have sown. Each day some little progress make; Lean not on trustful idleness, Another route. So meet Success! Lest, ere it reaches you, it take

II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
Blakely had departed for England weeks ago, with all the necessary documents for the prosecution of his 'big scheme in his possession, and .Macdonald, now with plenty of funds in hand, had thrown himself heart and soul into the task of developing the mine. He had engaged as his chief assistant a smart young engineer named Forrest, fresh from a famous mining school at home, whose lack of practical experience was fully com pensated for in John's eyes by a •boundless enthusiasm, which he had the faculty of imparting to the miners under his charge. So far, however, their united efforts at locating the reef had ibcen no more successful than Macdouald's previous ones. They had bored and tunnelled in various direc tions from the main shaft, and al though no hint of the precious ore had been revealed, at least the pass ages, under Forrest's skilful guidance, were .masterpieces of underground construction. The lad was justly proud of them. Blakeley cabled the news of his ar rival in London. ...
John Macdonald's Triumph. I. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
John Macdonald's Triumph. I. Within the ramshackle hut that was used as the office of Woolamuck Gold Muie two men sat facing each other across a plain deal table, upon which stood a half-filled 'bottle of whisky and two glasses. The men were an incongruous pair. John Macdonald, tlio owner of the mine, was a hard-bitten, uigular, clear-eyed Scot of about thirty-live, clad In earth-stained mole skins, patched here and there with all sorts and shades of odd material, making a tout ensemble of gaudy col or that would, perhaps, have appealed to an artist's fancy, though It would certainly have been rejected with dis dam by a self-respecting tramp. The other man seemed a decade old er, of a somewhat flabby stoutness, and was attired in the immaculate white duck and Panama hat favor*! of the opulent tourist in the sub tropics. A brilliant as big as a pea biased and twinkled from its nest of scarlet silk under his massive folds Df chin, and a fat black cigar protru ded from a corner of his ...
Deafening. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
Deafening. The youth was in danger of drifting into bad courses, when one of the noble people who interest themselves in such cases persuaded him to accept employment on a farm. Alas! a week later the lad reappeared in his old haunts. "What, James!" exclaimed his bene factor, reproachfully, "back again? Why didn't you stay ou the farm?" "I couldn't stand the country, sir," answered the bred-and-born gutter snipe. "Too quiet for ye—.eh?" "Quiet, not 'arf; much too noisy," cried James. . "Why, crikey, sir, it was fair deafenin'. Wot wi' the row of the birds in. the daytime, and the noise of tke silence at night, I very near went off my 'ead."

CHAPTER XX'Vir. A Bolt from the Blue. The trial began at the Old Baile; some months alter the magistrate: had decided to submit the charge t( a superior court. Within the court the atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly, shadows gathered in corners, ye\ there was little about the groups it: the well oC the court suggestive ot the fact that a man, and a peer ol the realm, was about to be tried fov his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to bo present at this cause celebre, were there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together like so many cauli flowers—some with their hands clasp ea utider their gowns looking vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and then a laugh nuide Gwendolen, seat ed in a corner o£ the court, Miss Durn fonl at her side, wince and quiver.

THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High and Noble Calling. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High and Noble Calling. Agriculture is the only life's job to which the Creator ever directly set a man. He put Adam in the garden of Eden "to dress and keep it." Conse quently, the Mayor of the English town of Windsor was not far wrong certainly he was not guilty of affecta tion—when, in the course of his open ing remarks at the Royal Counties Show the other day, he spoke of "the sacred cause of agriculture." We are not to confine the word I'sa cred" to matters that' touch upon man's future state merely. Anything so called. Anything that is high-and noble; anything'that can be exalted in the conception and the doing; any thing that conduces to the best in man and the best in his surroundings may be called sacred. All this may truly be said of the cultivation of the soil and husbandry at its best. It is not easy for a farmer always to remember this. Ont. is not always in a devotional frame,of mind in fly time or when on an afternoon ft "plough li...

Then He Was Somebody. "Yes, sir," said Philip, "I've come to the conclusion that I amount to something after all. There have been times when I was disposed to believe that I was a mere cipher in the world, but I can never have so small an opinion of myself again." "What has caused, this sudden change in your estimation of. your self?" "I have just been talking to a man who wants my vote."

PATIENCE. "To know how to wait," says Do Maistre, "is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time lie tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and when tliey grap pled it and brought it to the surface, il. slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of the inventor rewarded. In life's school one of the hardest lessons is to learn to wait patiently.
MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
MAKING FARMING PAY. We ure ah trying to make things pay, but we refuse to invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some must have an immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest 110 crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good bleeding stock, and so pro duc cows tlieat do not giv the most profitable result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm.

The man dropped into a pew with a sigh o£ relief. "Thank goodness," he said, "I've found my crowd at.last."
