Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for lier husband. She wanted to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting her news, for if 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 toiling liim 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. "1 have got into a little trpuble .oyer v bridge," he wrote, ''aiid must pay it at once. You'll manage, won't you, mums, dear, for you never failed a fellow yet" (No, and never shall," thought the mother....

Scheme Interested Him. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 May 1914
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. Instead of the money the man put a note in the box, "Nothing doing in the money line, but the scheme you suggest interests me." It is curious that a man and a girl Mio have found room in the same chair before they marry often find there is scarcely room for them in the same house after they are mar ried. Maude: "She's such a quiet little person that I'm surprised to hear she's wearing a diaphanous skirt." Edna: "Perhaps she believes in the old saying that little girls should be but not Jicard."

CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 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 facc 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 ha...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 9 May 1914
II. The dusk had fallen some time, and had almost turned to decided dark ness, as Cranleigh's wife stood by the open studio window, waiting for Cur tis to come up to dinner. She hated having her meals alone, and since her husband's departure Dick and she usually dined together, either at home or out at a restaurant. They had been very pleasant, all those little tete-a-tete meals, and the little jaunts that had been the order of things dur ing this past two monhs of Cranleigh's absence. And it was wonderful, now she came to think of it, how quickly the time had passed. Two days later her husband would tie back—dear, good-natured, easy-going old John. And Dick—to-morrow Dick would be gone. She wondered curiously, as sho leaned her arms on the window-sill, watching the twinkling lights on the river, that turn it by night into a won derful enchanted land, full of mystery and fascination, just why he was go ing off to Algiers on this trip; and she realised with somewhat startling .sudden...

THE TEST. STORY OF A WOMAN'S AWAKENING. By Constance Eune. Cranleigli, on hie aide o£ the break fast table, looked up witii a sudden exclamation of dismay from the letter he was reading—a 'biff, official-looking document. "Little woman," lie said, regret fully, watching his wife's face, "I'Ve got to leave you," She put down a morsel or toast and smred at lum in pretty consternation. •"Leave me?" she echoed. Then sho flashed all the armor of her dimpling smile at him. "Tired of me at last, John?" she asked lightly. Ho laid a strong-looking brown hand over one of hers as an answer to her query. "I'm afraid it's going to be more than the usual few days this time, Midge," he said; "and I cau't take you out with me—Cairo. It means a couple of months, I expect. The Chief"—he turned to the big, import ant-looking sheet again, headed Down ing-street—"The Chief says I'm to hold myself in readiness to start to day, it necessary." Her brow puckered into a frown. "But I don i see in tho least w...
