THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER IV. VAL BERESFORD'S REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914
the master passion. (BY LILIAN ELLERTON.) CHAPTER IV. V Mi BERESFORD'S REWARD. The days passeil quickly at Belton Castle, flying on the wings of happi-. ness, full of fun, brightness, and sun shine; and Ida Hamilton, revelling in the present joy, forgot to ask if it were the halcyon gleam that precedes a storm. It was so hard to doubt the future when the man she loved best turned away from the charms of every other woman to throw his homage at her tiny feet, unwillingly perhaps, and not without an inward struggle with his pride, but nevertheless completely, be cause it was helf reluctant. Even Miss Brabazon grew more amicable, now that her niece seemed on the point of making so unexceptionable a marriage. The Hon. Cis. Deverel was all that co"uld be desired as a "parti," and if he chose Ida for his wife, the girl would have done very well for herself. "Xow play your cards well, aud I - think you have a chance of winning the game," said Miss Brabazon, taking advantage of the absence ...

PENSHURST GOLF TOURNAMENT ADVANCE TO TWO DAYS PROVED ADVANTAGEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 13 June 1914
PENSHURST GOLF TOURNAMENT ADVANCE TO TWO DAYS PROVED ADVANTAGEOUS. The annual event of the Penshurst Golf Club, in its open tournament, transpired on Saturday and Monday. This year Teas the first time in which the club has advanced from one -day to two in this direction and the popu larity of the club was once more proved beyond doubt by a large body of con testants,'keen on enjoying a function so well arranged as the Penshurst tourna ment-always is. The, greens committee - had spent a considerable amount of time and, trouble in getting the course in good going order, but although the course was in the pink of condition, and bore signs of many improvements on that of last tournament", the otaajis themselves were hardly up to the sa.-ne high standard as those of last year. This however is in no way detrimental to the efforts of the committee, because, in addition to haying the dryness of the season to cope with, they had a state . of perfection to come up to. On the whole, the greens...

The motion was seconded by Mr.' Carey. Mr. J: J. Collins regretted that a full-attendance of the committee was not present. This matter had been brought up-at a previous meeting, and notice was given of the motion- to give the full committee a chance to attend. It was only for the interest of ; +he club that such a step was being taken. Such poor support as the club was re ceiving made one feel that the best policy would be to get out, and it was .for that purpose-that he attended.

A very large attendance was present on the Recreation Ground op Satur day afternoon last, when the newly formed Terr:er' Coursing Club held its initial meeting; Entries in the three' stakes run were numerous, and in teresting courses were witnessed all through the afternoon. This form of sport has been.taken up with in terest wherever introduced, and the prospects of the new club are consid ered very rosy, , A large number of terriers are obtainable in this dis trict. and as the sport is .cheap com paratively, it is one-that will receive good patronage from those who would .look on the keeping of. greyhounds as too expensive. The President of the club, Mr. Thos. Tobin, was a liberal patron, as well as a helpful official, on Saturday last, the added trophy in the open stake being a beautiful brace let presented by him. Mr-. W. J. Archbold also kindly donated a medal for the maiden stake. With the help of a good working committee, the sec ...

—THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER IV (Continued.) | A look of delight shot across his sen sitive face. "And so did I. Don't you think that they would go very well together, not only now," dropping his voice,."but— "Deverel, where are you? I've been looking for you everywhere"; and Lord "Waverley put his hand on his shoulder. It was only to ask some stupid ques tion about the band, and Cis cursed him mentally as the most thundering idiot of his acquaintance. The other question on which so much depended was inter rupted, and the answer buried in a girl's quivering heart. The opportunity did not occur again, and Lord Waverley, as he went away wondering over his friend's wrathful scowl, might have thought there was some excuse for it, if he had known the circumstances. It was getting late when Captain Beresford led Ida Hamilton into the conservatory, and claimed his reward. "What is it to bo?" she asked list lessly, as she bent over the datura with small desire to admire its proportions. "Ca...
WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 13 June 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ainbrosine.") A housewife Mvriting in the "York shire Post? tells some of her methods of using up "odds and end." There is a vast difference between economy and parsimony, she says, and though I am sometimes laughed at by my mends for making use of various odds and etids in rather unusual ways, I have a great dislike to meanness in any form, and do not-at all approve of short commons in any direction, it realiy makes one's guests uncomfort able to leei that there is a scarcity of any household requisite, and yet 1 have stayed in houses where money need not have bet-n a great considera tion, and have ns-n from the table after a meal with a decided feeling of not having had enough .to eat. There should always, if possible, be plenty for a "cut and come again," when one invites a friend, and > on a day when this cannot be done it is better not to ask the guest. The following are a few of the ways in which I should contrive savoury dishes from remnants which ar...

THINKING OF HIMSELF. Two Irish soldiers stationed m the West Indies were accustomed .to bathe daily in a little bay whioh 'was gener ally supposed to be free from .harks. Though on good iterms with each other, they were not what might be called fast friends. One day, as they were swimming about one hundred' yards from che shore, Pat' observed Mike suddenly mak ing for. the land as hard as he "could without saying a -word. Wondering what was the matter, Pat struck ou vigorously after him; and landed at his companion's heels. "Is there anything wrong wid yel" inquired Pat, feelingly. "Nothing—nothing at all," replied the other. - "Thin what did ye make sick a sud dint retrate for an' lave me?" contin ued Pat. j "Bedad," answered Mike, coolly, "I spied the fin of a big shark about' twenty feet ahead,, an' I thought while" he was playin' wid you it vud giva me time to rachg the ihore 1"

ANIMAL TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 13 June 1914
ANIMAL TRAINING. Mcst people have heard of the cele brated calculating horses of Elberfeld, who can do anything up to calculating square roots, in addition to being ,pro fioient at spelling. It would now ap pear,'according to the Paris press, that although these feat® are actually per formed, they are due to a very clever device. An animal trainer has in formed the 'Matin.' that he has utilised a syptem of. wireless telegraphy for training animals to do ah sorts of tricks. The receiver is placed in the horse's bridle, while the trainer or an assistant manipulates the transmitter, and by a code of signals, which are not difficult to teach, the animals can be made to give any desired "answer." It is suggested that this system is used in the case of the celebrated Elberfield horses. Prior to the utilisation of wire less telegraphy, the trainer mentioned employed a method of signals by. means of a tooth-pick.
