MASTER OF ALL CHAPTER XX. Robert Has Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
MASTER OF ALL BY ALMAZ STOUT Author of "Copper Under the Gold," etc., etc. Published by Arrangement with Cassell's Colonial Press, Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XX. Robert Has Hope. A few afternoons later Robert call ed in for a cup of tea. "Has Mrs. Burnand been liere?" lie asked. "I met her a few yards down the street." "Yes; she is feeling a little low, and was good enough to say she thought I should cheer her up. You know Alec has gone abroad." "I knew he was going. Has he gone for long?" "For a year at least. He is going to make sketches of some of the South African battlefields." "What a weird subject for a man like Alec Burnand of all people in the world. Of course they'll be no earthly good!" "I'm not so sure," said Sydney. "He has been improving immensely in grip and power lately, in my opin ion. That's his—he brought it to me when he came to say good-bye yester day. She pointed to a little finished sketch of one of her favorite corners of the park, and the trees ...
II [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
II. The Reverend Harold Truscott walked gloomily along the White chapel-road, to Aldgate. Here he in tended to take the Underground to St. James' Park, the nearest station to his rooms in Artillery Place, but he passed Aldgate Station without no ticing that he had done so. He was a man sensitive to outside influence, and the cold sleet which was falling thinly depresesd him. And he was bitterly disappointed. Less, perhaps, at his rejection—for that he had al most expected—than because Beatrice Grahame's decision had had a finality which would render it impossible to ask her again. And to do him justice, though in his weak way he undoubt edly loved her, he was influenced not less by the immense power which he believed a union with her would give him in the furtherance of his work. For Miss Grahame was a compara tively rich woman and totally inde pendent. He wondered in a dim sort of way who the man was to whom she had j given her love. He was conscious of ; a feeling that in some way...
His Share. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
His Share. Jones had bought two cigars and had given Brown one of them. After a while Brown began making reflec tions on the character of the cigar, which caused Jones to exclaim: "Well, I don't know what you are making such a fuss about, I gave a shilling for the two." Whereupon Brown replied: "Ah, just my luck; you got the ten penny one and I got the other." At a recent election the candidate was "heckled" rather badly by the lo cal butcher. At last he grew rather tired of it, and hinted that the man was wasting time by asking silly questions. The butcher, enraged, retorted: "If I had you in my sausage-ma chine I'd make mincemeat of you." The candidate turned to him and asked gently: "Is thy servant a clog that thou shouldst do this thing?" He was a college professor, greatly beloved because of his kind heart, but "with the common scholastic failing of being very absent-minded. He visit ed his married niece, and listened to her praise of her firstjborn. When she paused for breath,...

Skipton News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
Sklptoii « There is, it seems, a remote possibility that the present recreation reserve will not be taken by the Railway depart ment. Either some friendly—and at present nnknown—influence has been exerted, or a doubt exists in the de partmental mind whether, after all, the reserve would be the cheapest and best site for the railway station. The fact remains that Messrs Heed and Lent re visited Skipton on Wednesday, and an other survey is being made which, if adopted, would put the station on Mr Vowles' block and the shunting yard through the properties of Messrs Perry, Angus and Jarvis, with the dead end across the Lismore road in front of Mr A. Wilkie's workshop. The result of the new survey will no doubt be made available in due course. About the last professional work dona in Skipton by Dr Barrett was to treat three cases of ptomaine poisoning, de veloped by Mr M'llveana, the local postmaster, his wife and eldest boy, after partaking of some corned meat. The patients put in a bad...

Kennedy presided over the an imal meeting of the Linton Public Lib rary on Monday night. There was a small attendance. The balance-sheet for the quarter showed a deficit ^ of £1 9s Id, bnt the membership had risen to 46, and an increased subsidy might be expected. Correspondence was received from the secretary of the Linton Boys' Club, stating that the club had been dis banded, and that it bad been decided to hand over the funds in hand (about 23s) to the Library. The offer was accepted with thanks. The Libarian forwarded a request that the veranda be repaired, and this matter was left in the hands of the president. The following office-b...
The War. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
o The war still drags on ia the depths of the European winter with varying for tunes. The Germans have surprised the French by a superior force at Soissons and scored a partial success at heavy cost. This has been counter-balanced by advances in Alsace, and by success ful British attacks. The Turks are de scribed as ill-fed, ill-clothed, and badly officered, and their stock seems to have fallen below par. Their invasion of Egypt, if it ever comes off, appears to be d.oomed to failure. The Russians are hammering away, but their progress is slow. Thez-e has been very little doing at sea, but an incident of the Falkland naval battle, when a number of German crasiers were sunk by the British, throws a lurid light upon the horrors of war. The German crusier Leipsig had stop ped firing, intending to surrender, and had actually formed in line 200 oE ■ her crew for rescue from their shattered ves sel. Unfortunately the flag was still flying, and the Glasgow fired, killing all but 12 of the ...
CYCLING HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
CYCLING HINTS. Having learnt to balance and con trol your machine, to mount and dis mount fearlessly", you should give some consideration to the manner of riding, not only in regard to the ap pearance, but also to acquiring a greater degree of speed with less ex penditure of nervous energy. Sit securely and comfortably on your machine, with the body upright, and pedal evenly, bringing both ankles into action at the same time. Knees and feet must be kept in a line, the toes straight on the pedals— not the instep, as to place the instep over the pedals causes loss of power, besides being extremely bad style. Do not grip your handles; it is not necessary, and looks very ugly; hold them just as lightly as you can. Many people think it safer to ride with the saddle low. This is quite a mistake, as on a low saddle you have less control over your machine. You should raise your saddle until, when sitting on it, your foot can just light ly rest its arch upon the pedal when depressed. Try to ...
He Had His Nerve. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
He Had His Nerve. Miss Neverstop, seating herself be tween two much-engrossed elderly gentlemen, exclaims: "A rose be tween two thorns." "Nay, madam," retorts one; "say rather a tongue sandwich." Two next-door neighbors quarrel led, and one of them exclaimed, ex citedly: "Call yourself a man of sense! Why, you're next door to an idiot." iSome women can't lose the married look even after they become widows.
A GOOD EAR FOR MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
/ A GOOD EAR FOR MUSIC. A quick ear for music is a very de lightful gift. Adelina Patti (Baron ess Cederstrom) herself is stated to be a poor reader of music; but her ear is quite extraordinary. This is how she learnt her part of Carmen —and there are no scores so difficult 1 to master as those of Bizet, so the artists declare. Well, Signor Bevig nani went down to Craig-y-Nos "and played the opera through at the piano once or twice a day. In a few days she knew every note from beginning to end, and sang the Intricate music, as we all know, with most perfect success. j Harking back to the past we learn how Napodeon had no ear whatever for music yet like a little gentle fid dling and piano-playing as an accom paniment to his thoughts. Paisello's i airs he preferred to any others, for he said they "interrupted" him not at all. And 'when not engaged in any very deep thought, he liked the stir ring air of "Vive He.iri Quatre." Frederick the Great was a "pretty" performer on the flute; an...

Why Germany Must Fail. THE FORCES AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
THE FORCES AT WORK. Mr Henri Bergson well justifies his optim istic philosophy by a triumphant message as to the issue of the war, published ia the " Figaro," of which the " Westminster " gives this translation :— " The issue of the conflict is not doubtful : Germany will succumb. ^Material and moral forces, everything which is sustaining her, will in the end fail her, because she is living on provision made, because she is exhausting that provision, and has no means of renew ing it. " Of her material resources, all has been told. She has money, but her credit fails, and no one can see where she is to borrow. She needs nitrates for her explosives, fuel for her motors, food for her 65,000,000 people ; for all this she has made provision, but the day will come when her granaries will be empty and her reservoirs dry ; how will she refill them ? " War as she is practising it entails a fear ful consumption of men. Yet even here re cuperation is quite impossible. No aid is coming to her f...
REAL BEARDED WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
REAL BEARDED WOMAN. The professors and surgeons of the French Academy of Sciences have been confronted with a most remark able case of what is known as "viril ism." Professor Tuffier, an eminent Par isian surgeon, presented a woman of sixty-two years whose face and hands have become those of a man. She is something more than the bearded wo man of the old circus days (the "Ex press" says). When she was forty years old she was attacked with an extraordinary hypertrophy of certain glands, and since then her whole be ing has changed. Her biceps have at tained the strength of a healthy man's biceps, her shoulders have broadened, and she'has become pecu liarly muscular. Most extraordinary of all, she has grown bald, and at the same time has developed a long black beard, which reaches to her waist. When she first went to the professor's clinic, she shaved her beard out of modesty, but in the interests of science she was persuaded to let it grow again.
MY ANNUAL FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
MY ANNUAL FIRE. By a Countrywoman. A few years ago I visited a home where the clutter and confusion of everything was so great that the en tire family were perpetually miser able. Alas! none of them knew what the matter was. I shall never forget the uncomfort ableness of that visit, nor the look of that house. The father was a pros perous farmer who bought many things in the course of the year. Every article he brought home was kept for ever after, even though its usefulness had passed. The result was that every room overflowed and the mantles were piled high with pho tographs, old almanacs, calendars'; magazines, newspapers, empty paste board boxes and bottles. Every cup board, closet and bureau was jammed until it could hardly be shut. The kitchen shelves, sinks and tables were past all description. I laid my knife down upon a table just once, and I had to come away without it two days later; it could not be found. When a pencil or a post-card was wanted, or the gloves that were w...
A Wise Dutchman. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
A Wise Dutchman. "What is the matter with you?" said a gentleman to an old Dutchman who was limping along. "I got the rheumatis," was the re ply. "You ought to rub yourself with brandy until it penetrates well into your system," advised the gentleman. "I dosh better than dat," said the Dutchman, winking his eye, "I drinks the prandy, mynheer, and then I rubs my leg mit te pottle!" An Oklahoma editor was much in terested in a scientific note he en countered in a New York paper to the effect that if the earth were flattened the sea would be two miles deep all over the world. The editor reprinted the note with the following comment:— "If any man is caught flattening the earth, shoot him on the spot. There's a whole lot of us in this State that can't srwlm." An American girl was taking a Liv erpool girl home to the States with her, and towards the end of the jour ney remarked: "It is delightful to feel that one is so near home. We ought to sight Sandy Hook this afternoon." "Shall we?" e...
Hardly Worth It. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
Hardly Worth It. "So you saw the woman, drop her purse," said Mr. Marks to his friend, "but lost her in the crowd. Did you advertise?" "Oh, yes," said Mr. Parks; "but I didn't get an ans-er. I put this in the papers: -'If the plain ■woman about forty-five years of age, wearing a dress and a hat of last year's style, who lost a purse containing five pounds on Saturday will apply to , the property will be returned.'" "Good heavens, man!" said Mr. Marks. "No wonder you didn't get an answer. No woman in the world would own up to that description for five pounds."
SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR FINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 23 January 1915
SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR FINGERS. The cutting of the finger-nails is one of those little tasks from which we are relieved only by the grave. It is computed that their average growth, in sickness and in health, is l-32nd of an inch a week, a little more than an inch and a-half a year. This rate of growth, however, is not the same for all the fingers, the thumb and the little finger being the ones whose nails grow more slowly than the others, while the middle finger is the fastest of the lot. In summer it has been observed that they grow quicker than in winter, and some authorities hold that the nails on the right hand lengthen more rapidly than those on the left. In either case they grow four times as fast as the nails on our toes.
