II. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

Not so the Archdeacon; he had de cided to remain. Closeted "with Hugh in the private cabin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that you propose to take her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h'> said; "if we did that always, life would he rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes tlie prejudices are feminine—the argument is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the best of women, and that s'e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask iny 6ister to take up her case. After that it will be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repealed the words as- though they were oil upon h...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. Tliey put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what he intended to do, and she had heard him without protest. A rough passage with' almost a gale from the north east kept them to the saloon and to the ArcU-'ieacou's humors, "file child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and ttiat fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and his knowledge of domestic juriapiudence intruded hap pily upon this curious situation. Of Leila he formed a truly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a little -wild. It was quite possible that this beautiful siren they had trapped at Newcastle was in ■ some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

n. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on hoard the Chris tabel had brought with it a meas ure, of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to Save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she had defied the worst threats o£ the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a month must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pittanc...

Meanwhile there was Stranraer Harbor at dusk and all its terrors. Hugh told her at sunset just what he meant to do, and she listened without protest. His own motor car would be waiting for them at Stran raer; Ills own launch would take tliem ashore. "They know me here,"-he said, "there will be no trouble. If your; old .sailorman has not been able to hold his tongue, I do not suppose the; cackle of it has travelled so far. We shall go ashore when it is dark and travel all night to Aberfeldy. It will be time enough when we get there] for my sister and me to decide whav is the beBt thing to be done." : She looked up quickly at tlie word sister. "Do you think that I shall be able to abide by your decision?" she ask ed him—a vague question whose meaning he understood. "Oh," he said, "Ueraldine is one 6l the best little women in the world; she doesn't always seem to he, but that's her manner.

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named' Dreher, an employe o£ a large Lancashire firm, threw lip his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon 'became very anxious, "When her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling lier of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. , Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where lie was found in. Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, he con sented 'o accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his'...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS 1 MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, There are few people responsible tor more harm in the world than the thoughtless person; anil his plea, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "1 didn't think," is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old woman of Chicago left u lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may be sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started by that over-turned Ininp in the Chicago cow-shed swept In tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to the extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there are s...

The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and discnssei it in awesome tones above the very cabin 'where Leila watched Desdv in his heavy sleep. This <was a rare blow to them, for they perceived immediately that it meant the end of their holiday. I'ar from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they had throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hu-gh Donald hinveir to be a man who would never marry. His aversion to the sex had become a S>y-word among them, and yet here was the very truth. "A girl aboard the Christa'bel!" But for the light in the cabin, which was unoccupied ves terday, they never would have be lieved it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to them, and h...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he Is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a feast, •but feasts are indigestible things, j Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, Belect a tousy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of ft. Although otherwise stingy, a man may tie willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter Is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says Bhe does not care' for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now describ...
