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 IV.—Continued. Miss Sadje Stone, .... Dick was not disappointed. Sadie danced better even than he had ex pected. There is something in au American woman's movements that makes her dancing, when it . is good, a better thing than an Englishwo man's, even when that is good. After some time they stopped, and Dick ask'cd Sydney to take a turn with him. She shook her head. "Not after Miss Stone. You've no idea how bad ly 1 dance." "Nonsense, dear. come. 1 can make anyone dance." And, answering the master's look in his eyes, Sydney rose, and Maggie took her place at the piano. Two minutes later, hot, mortified, and shaken, Sydney stopped dead. "I told you how, it would be," she said." "I am sure you have not an un brulsed toe on either foot!"

WASTE OF TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 26 November 1914

WASTE OF TIME. Idleness is a fault we all condemn in the young, and too often Indulge in without remorse ourselves. There is a busy idleness, which sometimes •blinds us to its nature; we seem to ourselves and others to be occupied, but what is the result of it all? What Hannah More calls ^'a quiet and dull frittering away of time," whether' it be in unprofitable small talk, or in constant idle reading, or sauntering over some useless piece of work, is surely not "redeeming the time," and yet how many days and hours are thus wasted; we -benefit neither our selves nor others! Those who have their time entire ly at their own disposal, with perhaps •10 definite duty to occupy them, should guard resolutely against was;'- of lime. Make duties lor your seiv:Ii.\ aoiirs for your different, oc cupations. do wit!i your mighl what soever your hand lindelli to do; and can fully, conscientiously ascertain which of your employments is not worth till this care.

Hut to Lady Folent, his em ployer, on her rare visit;;, he was meekness itself. John Blunt sat in his morocco Swiv el chair, with John Blunt, junior, at his right hand, a rather weedy fellow of twenty-four, with the promise of a flaxen moustache 011 his lip and a very supercilious expression. Facing these two stood the works manager, the head bookkeeper, and ihe chief engineer, three typically North-coun try wen, with lean faces and virile, muscular figures. "I tell you it's none of the works sitaft!" roared the works manager. "And' I do know it's none o' my men!" insisted the engineer. John Blunt turned with a growl ...

The hearse, follow ed by a mourning coach, proceeded towards Wexford, and passed through 'the town in the direction of an out lying graveyard. The supposed funeral procession did not excito the least curiosity along the route, and even the drivers in charge of the hearse and coach were r.nware of the contents of the coffin. When the news of this exploit was circulated many were in doubt as to its genuineness, but from inquiries in a source regarded as reliable the re port has been confirmed.
