THE SIGHT OF THE BLIND. SOME EXAMPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 1 April 1910

THE SIGHT OF THE BLIND. SOME EXAJVIPLES. The story that Mine. Calve may matrry a man who has recently lost his sight recalls. Instances o£ unions between the sighted and the blind which have Had the happiest results. The Inundation of our knowledge o£ the habits of the bee, says the "Evening Standard," was laid by a blind man and his wife. Francois Huber began to lose his eight at fifteen, and eventually became quite blind, but the devoted woman to whom he had becomo engaged married him, and was sight to bis eyes. Doctor F. J. Campbell, the, lion-hearted Principal of the Normal, School for the Blind at Upper Norwood, never finds his blindness an hindrance. Ho rides, rows, cycles, and climbs moun-' tains, and describes his adventures with all the picturesque: enthusiasm o£ a man who has seen for himself. "How old So-and-So is looking!

THE HOME OF ELAINE. ST. MICHEL'S MOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 1 April 1910

THE HOME OF ELAINE. ST. MICHEL'S MOUNT. It is very good, after being in city pent, to lie on soft heather at M—— and see, if not all the kingdoms of Uie earth, at least a goodly portion of a fair country. It strtatches from left to right, a 'vast flat -vcll-tiin bored land, broken here and there by a village spire and cluster of slate or wood-tiled roofs. Immediately below lies the town of M , perched on a sharp incline, culminating in the val ley of a swirling little river of pretty falls , which wiinds its casual way through broken rocks, and shady trees. Straight ahead, a score of miles away, one sees St. Michel's Mount clearly silhouetted against a silver streak of sen, its tapering spire and rocky basements forming a re markable 'landmark in so fiat a country. ■ 3T—:— is served by more than one station.

That's hard lines on you. ; Cannot you Induce him to take a little pill or a little powder. If I were in your shoes I would try to persuade him -by offering to stand the treat. He couldn't resist that, and the bigger you made the dose the gladder he'd be.to swallow it! But will you have a weed?" said Frede rick, passing a box of tigars over to Jacob. Then as the latter declined the offer, he laughed and said, "Oh! for the moment I forgot! You daren't for fear of the old man cutting you off." I "Well, I don't think lie is likely to do ' that, even though I should take to, smok ing. But to me smoking, besides being i j a filthy habit, eeems a gross waste of good money."

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 1 April 1910

CHAPTER II. As Jacob. Carker paced the floor of his room,' after leaving his uncle, two facts occupied his mind. The first was the un doubted impression left upon his uncle's imagination by the dreani; the second .was that a new and hitherto unthought of meaning, sinister to his expectations, could be found in the lawyer's recent visits. On the previous day he had been for several hours closeted with the old man, the same had occurred that day, and now again they were together. As the ominousness of the situation forced itself upon Jacob he ground his teeth in rage and vexation at the threatened shattering of hopes which, an hour ago, appeared on the verge of rea lisation. Gradually, however, his apprehensions began to subside slightly. He recalled his uncle's assurance that the will would be a pleasant surprise, and his further em phatic assertion that he had not left his money to' be squandered by Frederick. But his nerves were too rudely shaken to allow ^him any peace of mind for...

JONATHAN HANBURY'S WILL CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 1 April 1910

JONATHAN HAHBURY'S WILL By A. WILSON BWXNG. CHAPTER i; "Nephew, turn down the light a little. I don't need so much to see to die by!" The querulous voice was that of old Jonathan Haribury, who lay on the huge tester bed Jn the centre of the room. His nephew, Jacob Carker, rose, ad justed the light, and then, without even looking in the direction of his uncle, re sumed his seat. The action was typical of the relations existing between the two men. Their Intercourse was devoid of any sign of sympathy, respect, or esteem Indeed, there was at times an . antipa. so pronounced that it could not be hidden. This was the most remarkable, inas much as the uncle had voluntarily selected his nephew to be heir to his considerable fortune. The reason for the choice was a characteristic, one. Being a miser by habit and instinct, • Jonathan deemed it essential that the same trait should be strongly developed In whoever succeeded him. His only relatives were the two sons of a de ceased sister, Frede...
