CHAPTER XLIII. IN THE NICK OF TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
CHAPTER XLIII. IN THE NICK OP TIME. Scarcely a second after he fired j Volborth was at the window, which faced north from very nearly the mid dle of the house. Lucille joined him as quickly, and thrusting their heads out they saw Leon Montejo running like a deer—he was evidently not hurt—towards the right-hand angle. He reached it and disappeared, though his excited voice could still be heard ; and at the other side of the house a clamour had already broken out. Dick, meanwhile, had stooped and lifted Mary from the floor. She was greatly agitated as she clung to him and between hysterical sobs she gasp ed : "Where is he ! Did you shoot him, Dick ? Oh, thank God that you came when you did !" "Compose yourself," Dick answer ed, hurriedly. "The scoundrel is/gong —and worse luck. We must leave here at once to join the marines who are on their waj to help to take the town. And one whom you know, Mary—an old friend of both of us— will be leading them !" "Who?" the girl asked, breathless l...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosiue.") A housewife writing in the "York shire Post" tells some of her methods of us-ng up "ouds ami end." There is a vast difference between 'economy and parsimony, sue says, and though 1 am sometimes laughed at by my mends for making use of various odds and ends in rather unusual ways, I have a great dislike to meanness in any iorm, and do not at all approve, of snort commons in any direction. It really makes one's guests unoomfort able to feokithat there is a scarcity of any household requisite, and yet 1 . have stayed in houses where money need not- have been 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.

The following are a lew of the ways in wnich I sUould contrive savoury dishes from remnants which are oft...

t^-—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 1! "Deverel, where .are you? I've been looking for you everywhere"; and Lord Waverley put his hand on his skoulUei. It was only'to ask some stupid ques tion about the band, and C'is 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 m 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.

PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
PROCRASTINATION. You are merely storing sorrow jr the future, sages say, if you put off till to-morrow things which should be done to-day. When there is a job unpleasant that it's up to me to do, I attack it in the present, give a whoop and push it through; then my mind is free from troubles, and I sit before the fire pop ping corn or blowing bubbles, or a whanging at my lyre. If I said: "There is no hurry—that old job will do next week," there would be a con stant worry making my old brain-pan creak. For a man knows no enjoy ment resting at the close of day, if he knows that some employment is neg lected in that way. There is nothing more consoling at the setting of the .sun, when the evening bells are toll ing, than the sense of duty done. And fchat^solace cometh never to the man of backbone weak who postpones all sane endeavor till the middle of next week. Let us then be up and doing, with a heart for any fate, as the poet said, when shooing agents from his garden gate. .Let us s...
ALL THE DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
ALL THE DIFFERENCE. The sort of sentiment which 1 the French system of "manages de con venance, or, in plain English, of mar riage for' money, produces is well il lustrated by a story which a French paper-tells. Marie, a young lady, announces to her parents that she has accepted the hand of Monsieur X. -* / "Child, you are orazy 1" exclaims' Marie's mother. "But why, mamma?" "Young X. will have no money for many years, because' it all belongs to . his grandfather, and after that comes his father, and you will be old before you get the property.*.' "But, mamma " " "No buts about it—you • are a bad and undutiful child I" "But, mamma, it is the granfather whom I're accepted!" "The grandfather! Oh, you little angel!"
TINKERING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
TINKERING. Jim Blinkenshoot is always busy, he never knows an idle hour; but all he does is weird and dizzy, and brings him neither wealth nor power. He starts a job with fiery ardor, and tires when it's three-quarters done; And so there's little in his larder, and he is always short of mon. He always has a scheme so splendid it makes all other projects wilt; "you'll see me classed, when all is ended," he tella his friends, "with Astorbilt." He has no lazy bones within him, , with energy he's all athrob, but it' impossible to pin him down to a sane and steady job. And so his wife is doing washing, or beat ing carpets in the sun, while Blinkeu shoot goes wildly sloshing from one fod scheme to t'other one. He sees his neighbors going sanely to do their tasks from day to day ; , tliey prosper well, while he is vainly inventing projects "bound , to. pay." The Blinkenshoots, in endless numbers, we see around us year by. year; the cheery, futile tribe encumbers the wliole.blamed surface o...
A SCATTERED RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
A SCATTERED RACE. Every few years someone makes the suggestion to collect all the Jews to gether into one land and found a Jew ish colony—a new Judea; but snch sug gestions never materialise. Few people realise how greatly the Jewish race is scattered in various parts of the world. Recent statistics: "show that there are nearly twelve million Jews in the popu lation of th© world, of which some three million reside in America; in New York alone there are estimated to be 1,062,000 Jews.' .The Jews in Africa roughly number a quarter of a million; while Asia has twice as many, and Aus tralia gives shelter to only 17,000. The bulk of the Jewish nation live in Europe, where there are about eight million Jews, of whom no fewer than five millions belong to Russia and a million to Austria. Hungary and Germany have about a million Jews in their united population; while latest statistics return the Jews in Turkey in Europe and Roumauia as 240,000 for «ach country. —'Answers.'
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? How do we know that a man is a good farmer? He will not tell you ho is; lie is too modest for that. But let's lock arms with him and take a little cramp across his farm this afternoon; for seeing is believing. He is doing to-day's work to-day. Tiiat is a pretty good sign of a thor ough farmer. Things are kept picked up around his buildings. That we like, coo.. He takes us around where the cattle run against the line fences, and every rail that is out of place he puts hack where it belongs. On the way through bhe pasture he stops to rub the nose of the little heifer. She likes it and shows that she is on speaking terms with her master. Coming home from school the boys and girls call out as soon as" they are in sight: "Hello, daddy!" And with a smile on her face the good wife says : "I'm glad to have you home again, husbaud !" The neighbor, passing, halts at the gate to talk over the crops and the weather. " On his tabl© l&lt;e the best farm paper...
THINKING OF HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
THINKING OF HIMSELF. Two Irish soldiers stationed m the . West Indies were accustomed to bathe daily in a little bay which was gener ally supposed to be free from sharks. Though on good .terms with each other, they were not what might be called fast friends. One day, as they were swimming about one hundred yards from the shore, Pat observed Mike suddenly mak ing for the land as hard as he could without s-aying a word. Wondering what was the matter, Pat struck ou rigorously "after him, and landed at his companion's heels, •'Is there anything wrong wid ye!" inquired Pat, feelingly. "Nothing—nothing- at all," replied the other. y '■'Thin what did ye make sich a sud dint retrate for-an' lave me?" contin ued Pat. •'Bedad," answered Mike, coolly, "1 spied the fin of a big shark about twenty feet ahead, an' I thought while he was playin' wid you it wud give me time to rache the shore 1"
THE OLD RAIL FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
THE,OLD RAIL FENCE. , It fitted well each rural scene and lent it half its charm, The old rail fence, the ragged fence, that stalked across the farm. . It took its zigzag course along—ran on without an end. There cross-vines found a place to ; * cling, the birds knew it as friend; The lizards stretched themselves along its old gray rails to siin, « And there the quail piped up his call when each long day was done. This mossy-bearded pioneer has almost passed away, Where'er we go we seldom see the oM rail fence to-day. Tt played its part and played it well— another has its plaoe, The new wire fence that stretches on in slenderness and grace, But we who loved it still shall miss, its rugged, quiet charm, The. old rail fence, the ragged fence, that stalked across the farm.
AN OBSCURE MILLIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
AN OBSCURE MILLIONAIRE. Tlie English public knows much less about its' wealthy man than ithe Ameri can public does about its millionaires. Some time ago a Mr. Birch Crisp ar ranged the £(3,000,000 loan for China, and the London Press had to hunt up some facts about this unknown finan cier. Notf tiiere is the case of Mr. Mallaby-Deeley, who by purchasing a large portion of the Duke of Bedford's London property for three millions brought off the largest private land deal in the history of London. In Am erica Mr. Mallaby-Deelev would have been brought prominently before the I public's notice before he bought the Bedford property, for he had been con cerned in such trifling deals as the purchase of the-Piccadilly Hotel for £500,000, and another London property for £400,000. But in spite of the magnitude of the dealings lie lias car ried through, Mr. Mallaby-Deeley is not a prominent or even a' well-known fig ure in business" circles, and he is said to be one of the hardest men in London...
THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOY [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
I THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOY I | When I com© to think- it over I can I reoall a good many things that happen to a boy to wound his pride and: to re mind him that no matter how manly he may feel is but a small boy after all, and must be treated as such. One of the earliest humiliations to which he is subjected is not being allowed" to fish with a leal hook. Sometimes a bent pin is substituted, the head of which is constantly slipping through the knot and losing itself in the water; or> if the real hook is used, father first carefully files off the barb to pre vent the possibility of its getting into the boy's hand or leg and requiring it to be cut out. IMow nobody ever saw n boy catoh a fish with a bent pin or a barbless hook, and' when a boy is seen fishing with either it is a sure sign that he is regarded as still being in the infant class. Another notice to a small boy that lie is only a small boy is making him ride a horse-with a grain bag for a saddle, this precaution being t...

HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 18 June 1914
HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING Many valuable animals are spoiled by improper or liarsh treatment. A man who is incapable of understanding the disposition of the horse is certainly in capable of training him; for the horse is endowed by the Creator with rare intelligence. Therefore, in his tender age,, he should have good care and proper training by being used with kindness and good judgment; af5, the same time, he must be given to under stand that although frightened or ex cited, he is to obey. \ The horse being moi'e nearly human than any other animal, you can get along much better if you hold a con sultation with him to a certain degree. For instance, if you were going to ask a favor of a crank, would you_go to him and say, "I need help and you have got to help me or I slifill force you to do it?" Would' the man do it or no£? Yet "that is the way the so oalled horse-breaker does. In my ex perience of training colts and older hor ses, two-thirds of those I have handled have been called...
