WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If so, here is a recipe—'buy wrecks. A beach boat which cost about £200 to build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! _ . Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, anu yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a large quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally consiste...

Taught by Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
Taught by Experience. He entered the shop of a fashionable bootmaker; a look of determination 011 his face. It was such a look as one sees on the face of a man who is firmly resolved to carry out, at all ha zards, a decision which will change the whole course of his life. "h'm!" he began, as the assistant stepped forward and politely question ed him as to his requirements in feet beautifiers. "I want a pair of shoes for my wife, Mrs. Brown." "Yes, sir, certainly," said the young man, briskly. "Same style and size as last week?" "Same style. Size, fives—wide fives," replied Brown, decidedly. "But—er—excuse me, Mrs. Brown only takes—that is, she usually has three-and-a-half," exclaimed the assist ant, who knew the lady well. "Are you married, young man?" queried Brown, sternly, the look of de termination deepening 011 his care worn features. "Er—not yet, sir," answered the shopman, blushing. "I thought not," returned Brown. "I am! I am not going to suffer half an hour's purgatory , ev...
A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
A CURIOUS PROCESSION. In the deep pine forests of Norway the wood-cutters sometimes And a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was made up of millions of little worms, they might be frightened by its peculiar appearance, ■ ■.» These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August in large numbers, preparatory-to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an.inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace is very slow,., and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they' will either writhe over or around it, sometimes Tjrbaking into bodies for. th...

START. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
START. There's art in a start. Every good thing has waited for years, perhaps for ages, and only for a starter. The good things in our life have waited in the same way, perhaps are ' waiting still. The art of start is this: Just begin. "Don't wait to feel like it, for you won't. * Don't wait till • it is easier, for it never will be. ' If the thing ought to be done, start It, and start it now.

PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, with its silent melodrama under the dawning heavens—or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue Mouffetard—or. in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of the drabs in the Place Pigalle? Do we know the romance or your peoples—or the ro mance of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Parjuer ette, little Easter daisy, little flower of France—little Patiuerette is dead. And you are old now and married, and there are the children to look out for—they're at the school age — and life's quondam melody is full of rests and skies are not always as blue as once they were. And Paris, four thousand miles beyond the seas— Paris isn't what it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is not a city—it is Youth. And Youth never dies. To...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in a tiny villa in South Kensington. Even the smallest villars are expensive in that part of the world. She was a slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and a faintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, ibut no one could call Margaret Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was Ralph, and his n.other, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did come into her head and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. She was very poor, very poor in deed, and did not like poverty. She was considered by her neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. She was still young, aud when, some time ago, she ha'l met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-eyed ...

"Is that you, Peter?" The eyes of Paul Danvers were raised with1 difficulty, his breath was • coming fast, he looked through the dim shadow of death at Peter Bel lairs, the friend of his life. "You have come. You are good," , said Paul, and he smiled faintly as he moved one very thin hand until it touched the hand, firm, brown and strong, o£ his comrade. "I was the lucky one, in one sense," he added after a pause. "We both made up our minds to be rich, but somehow X got the gold and—you?" "I. am a poor man &M11," answered 1'uter Bellairs. ' "Well, never mind, never mind," said Paul. "You are not dying in your youth and I am. I have made my pile.

WINTER IN ARCADY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it months or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall), And our wand'ring foototeps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall? When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly-sobbing through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to. your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the bottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers 6hiver; ('Tis the summer-house a-cruising up • and down the garden path.) How we -dallied with the hours 'Neath a° canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing :by the beam). . But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morro\v we'll 'be wading To the city through the pathway at the ...
CHAPTER III., [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
CHAPTER nr., Before Peter Bellairs left Bloem fontein he liad :i long interview with the lawyers, Messrs. Krux and Km ger. They gave him a copy of part of the will, which satisfied him that his friend 1 ad dealt fairly by him. i\ the rest of the money, which Paul Danvers called his pile, was secured for the maihtenarice of Sheila. It was to be hers without let or hindrance. It was to be hers if she married even at seventeen, and it was to be hers if at the age of twenty-one she were still unmarried. But the sum of Paul Danvers' wealth was not mentioned. Peter ask ed Mr. Kruger wliat it amounted to, and to his astonishment was told that this was a secret which would not fbe revealed until the. money was hand ed over to the young heiress. All Kruger would permit himself to.say was this: "It is a large sum—a very large sum, but I am not allowed to mention the amount. That was one of my client's strictest injunctions. You may take it for granted, however, Mr, Bellairs, that your little ...
THE DRINKING VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
THE DRINKING VESSEL. When birds are entirely confined to Bcratching-sheds the drinking vessel is often a source of a good deal ol trouble and losa of time, for the water gets fouled by the birds scratch ing litter into it, and a wide area round about the vessel ia often made tsoddeu and offensive by the splash ings. To remove or avoid these evils IB a simple matter. Take a half-bar rel, place it upside down in the ehed, and put the drinking vessel on tho top of if. Thus elevated, the water will not get fouled, nor will the litter be made wet. And the birds, being confined, will rather enjoy than other wise the diversion of hopping up to tho liquor table when so Inclined.

THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. IThe real art of dressing well does not lie in slavishly following the fash ion, 'but in choosing styles and colors to suit oneself, and in this way em phasising one's .best points. A gown, however, simple, should >be chosen with due regard to one's own personality, but to do this it is neces sary to spend more than one can afford. il'he great mistake so tnany women .nake in the matter of dress is in not pausiug to consider whether the gown or hat they intend having will suit their own particular style of beauty. Uecause a hat or frock looks well upon your friend it does not follow that it will look equally well on. you. Your coloring and figure may be dif ferent, and in that case the same dresb cannot suit you equally well. To be well dressed a woman must 'bo suitably dressed, and all the ac cessories, which make so great a dif ference to the effect, must 'be care fully chosen. •
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married and in the prime of their maturity, are apt to smile at the remembrance of their dreams of the ideal lover. They would not exchange the hum drum husband who perhaps goes to sleep after dinner regardless of a wife's presence for the most perfect lover who loved merely in their im agination. Perhaps they have discovered that, for their own part, they, too, may dif fer strongly from the ideal wife of which the husband dreamed. There may be shortcomings on iboth sides. But both husband and ivife have grown to love the imperfect human being who has lived with them for so many years, and who has long taken the place in their hearts of the most fascinating but unreal man or woman who went by the name of their ideal.
FRESTON TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
FRESTON TOWER. At Freston, near Ipswich, stands a picturesque building known as Fres ton 'Tower, which was constructed un der somewhat romantic circumstan ces. The owner of the estate upon which the tower stands was Lord de Freston, whose beautiful daughter, Ellen, possesed intellectual abilities of a high order. Fearing that intel lectual achievements would oe attain ed at the expense, of her natural graces and beauty, advice was tender ed to the anxious Lord de Freston to "build a tower six storeys high, each one with purpose known." Accord ingly Freston Tower was erected as a place of study and recreation for the gentle Ellen de Freston.
