TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914

TOO LATE. On either side of a desk in a Lon don office sat a man and woman clerk. As the man put it, they "got on well together." Once, indeed, he confided to a friend that he rather believed the lady "quite liked him." But he be came engaged to another, and one day, when he unexpectedly announced that, to improve his position and get married, he was taking a fresh situ ation, the lady clerk went home early, "with a headache." The man did marry—the wrong 'woman. Ere long he had to sink all his sav ings in divorce proceedings, and, sad der and wiser, he thought of a scheme for happiness. In his old firm there was a vacancy; he would apply for it, and—for now he knew her worth— would woo and marry the lady clerk. The situation he obtained. Before time on Monday morning he was back in the familiar office. Per haps she would be there early, too! He found a smart stranger before him, a clerk who volunteered: "I ex pect we shall be a bit glumlike to day. We all attended our late lady cler...

A SHREWD MANDARIN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914

A SHREWD MANDARIN. A Governor of a Chinese province was taken very ill, and refused to ad mit any visitors into his house. This being told to a mandarin of his ac quaintance, the latter was very much concerned, and after many importun ities, obtained an interview with him. On his entrance, lie was surprised to find no signs of sickness in his friend, and asked what was the matter with him. The Governor at length told him that he had lost the Emperor's seal out of the cabinet where it used to be kept, and that as the lock remained uninjured he was sensible that the seal was stolen. Of course, he could transact no business, and must soon be deprived of his government, and probably also of his life. The mandarin inquired if he had any enemy in the city. The other an answered "Yes," and that that enemy was an officer of rank whom he had offended, and who was disposed to do him an injury. , "Away, then," replied the mandar in; "let your valuable goods be se cretly removed this evening, t...

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914

CHAPTER V. When Sheila came to Sunnyside it was precisely as though the entire house was lit up by'something joyful, something which strongly resembled sunshine. Sheila, whatever the Afri kanders thought of her, was only a child, and she behaved exactly like one on this occasion. Her face was wreathed in smiles,-; her eyes were more expressive even than usual, the gleam of her pearly teeth showed when she laughed and talked. She was particularly affec tionate to Peter Bellairs and to Mar garet, his wife. She ran gaily about the grounds picking the daffodils and violets, and altogether behaving like a young thing who had never before enjoyed the delights of full liberty. Sheila was very much interested in her new garments, and as she tried on each jacket, each skirt, each hat with its simple band of ribbon, she flew out to try to find her beloved Uncle Peter. She always called him Uncle Peter. He was her beloved, her darling. Peter Bellairs gazed cri tically at the frocks and hats. H...

GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. FubliBlied by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XV. - Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting her news, for i£ there were an up right, steadfast, high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might not like her having written to the hotel to invite Mr. Kruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law yer to Sunnyside. In the afternoon a letter arrived from Ralph. He implored his mother to let him have £100 without delay. "I have got into a little trouble over bridge," he wrote, "and must pay it at once. You'll manage, won't you, mums, dear, for you never failed a fellow yet." (No, and never shau," thought the mother.) Her hopes...

Scheme Interested Him. The "Black Hand" Society wrote a man a letter demanding that he put £1000 in a box at the corner of X and Z streets at nine o'clock on Fri day night, or they would blow up the beautiful home of his wife's mother.

HISTORIC STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914

HISTORIC STAINS. Visitors to the famous castle of Wartburg, in Germany, are always very carefully shown a big black patch upon the wall. The room where this stain upon the wall is shown was occupied by .Martin Luther when he was a prisoner in this castle, and hero he commenced his famous trans lation of the Bible. The tradition is that Satan appeared to him in this room in order to make certain plaus ible suggestions to the great Reform er. His reply was to take up his ink stand and throw it at his visitor's head. It crashed against the wall, leaving a stain which has been rever ently preserved ever since. Undoubtedly the most interesting room in Scotland is the (sleeping chamber of Mary Queen of Scots, in the Palace of llolyrood, which still stands as it was when she occupied it. The walls are hung with tapestry, and half-covered by it is a small door leading to Queen Mary's secret stair. It was by this secret stair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Italian secreta...

The Bare Canvas. A painter o£ the "impressionist" school is now confined in a lunatic asylum. To ail persons who visit his studio, he says, "Look here; this is the latest masterpiece of my compo sition." They look, and see nothing .but an expanse of bare canvas. They ask, "What does that represent?" "That? Why, that represents tho passage of the Jews through the Red Sea." "Beg pardon, but where is the sea? "It lias been driven back." "And where are the Jews?" "They have crossed over." "And the Egyptians?" "Will be here directly. That's the sort of painting i like: simple, sugges tive and unpretentious."

".My object in calling on you this evening, Gertrude," he began, and then he coughed and added in a trem bling voice, "I may call you Gertrude, may I not?" "Of course you can," answered the young girl. "I allow all of papa's eld erly friends to call me Gertrude. The oldest of them even call me Gert. You may say 'Gert,' if you wish. What was it you wanted to talk about?" He coughed again, and then talked about how the days were drawing in ndw.

Words of Wisdom. Dr. J. II. Buckley, who is writing his autobiography in the "Christian Advocate," relates that he once saw Tennyson in the South Kensington .Museum with two ladies and two chil dren. Mr. Buckley circumspectly drew near, hoping to overheat some words of wisdom from the great man. He continued these tactics for an hour, but without success. Tennyson kept right on, saying nothing. At last Mr. Buckley de'ected some premonitory .symptoms of speech, drew softly nearer, and heard these never-to-be forgotten words:— "You hold the children while I get a glass of beer."
