INTERVIEWING AN ORGANIST. An Ordeal For Him. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

INTERVIEWING AN ORGANI8T.V An Ordeal For Him. She. tm an inquisitive - old lady (writes "H." in the "Musical World"), and-as the organist, through the mir ror, saw her adjust her gold pince-nei w'tb an air ot determined investigation, vet withal of critical appreciation, ha ibruptly closed his improvised fanta jia with a few crashing chords on the full organ, in the faint hope of escap ng the horror of the threatened inter view by scaring awav the apparition he saw in the glass. Scarcely daring to turu round, he was about to quit his seat, when he was arrested by what he thought to be a ciphering in the upper register of the Swell. Ha' istened attentively. "Nice, very nice indeed, Mr. Organ ist—superb! Why, it nearly shook oiy glasses off! Dear me, what was it, may I ask?" The poor organist shuddered, and •.urning round, he encountered a beam ing smile from behind the shining •ince-nez. He bowed politely and ro .igned himself to his fate. It was evi lent from his air that he had had...

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XXVI. "Rex v. James Gilbert. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XXVI. "Rex v. James Gilbert. Before many hours were over the 'Press blazed with paragraphs relating lo the arrest of Robert, Lord Monta iijor, on a charge of murder. Sensa tional headings met the public eye from the boards which set forth the contents of the many newspapers. "The claimant arrested on a charge oi murder," ran one. "Tragic de velopment of the -Montamor Case," was the heading of another. "The Montamor arrest for a crime," was the dark hint of an evening paper. Robert, standing white, motionless, while the cab was being fetched to convey him to Bow-street, thought with a shuddering horror of Netta and bis mother. He must send a tele gram. In his first interview with his solicitor he would give no account of the substance or' his defence until a telegram had been despatched. / "I am detained for a time on an {absurd charge, which I can absolute 7 ij^dfsprove," he wired to his darling....

CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

. CHAPTER XXVIII. The Cause Celebre Ends. Public curiosity had been whetted by the first days of the trial. The whole story, from first to last, was so extraordinary and romantic a one. Hot arguments and altercations oc cupied those of the public who had sufficient leisure to discuss the events of the passing hour. Such a ro mance had not been crystallised into actual, real fact for many a long day. Wars and rumors of wars were in abeyance for the time being. Over the family meals, from the highest to the lowest in society, the Montamvr case was excitedly, sometimes pas sionately discussed. Many espoused the cause of the supposed murderer, and, against all moral or religious law, upheld that justifiable homicide, if in t deed Charles Daunce were actually dead, was to be lauded rather than condemned. Others, rigid in their ac cepted canons of right and wrong, de fended the victim of Lord Montamor's summary revenge—held that evevy unit had the right to act for his or her own benefit—t...

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from the Blue. The trial began at the Old Bailey some months after the magistrates had decided to submit the charge to a superior court. Within the court the atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly,. shadows gathered in corners, yet there was little about the groups in the well of the court suggestive of the fact that a man, and a peer of the realm, was about to be tried for his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to be present at this cause celebre, were there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together like so many cauli flowers—some with their hands clasp ed under their gowns looking vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and then a laugh made Gwendolen, seal ed in a corner of the court, Miss Burn ford at her side, wince and quiver. Ronald, who was somewhere on the back • benches, had trie'd to prevent her from being present. But she was firm. Her anguish that she had been the actual ca...

SUCCESS. Success shall come to bim who waits; But not to him of folded hands— To him who hopes, but hesitates, And. simply hy the roadside stands.

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

A PARABLE OF MODERN .BABYLON. There was a boy, and his father said unto him, "My son, . work to day, for the time cometh when you must leave school." And he said, "Yea, father I will study this even ing." But a chum came round, and in the heat of "knuckle-up" the les sons were forgotten. So on the mor row he broke down in translation, and was soundly swished; and more over, at the year"s end he got no prize. Years passed, and a great man said to him, "Young man, come round to my office in the morning and I will make you my hireling, and you shall amass much wealth." But on the morrow the youth said, "I'will go after lunch, for my stomach crieth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.30. And when ho showed himself at the office, behold the vacancy waB filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach—yea, even one who bore on his 'scutcheon, "Do lfc> now." ' Then in the fulness of. time the young man loved a maid, and he said: "Behold, she Is very beautiful,...

He then poured the contents of one •'umbler into the other, and drank the lot, saying: "That's a great improvement. I'll call In and see ye some other day."

How Jones Was "Bowled." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

How Jones Was "Bowled." It was the occasion of the annual cricket match, Married v. Single, and the bachelor brow of Bailer, the cai^ tain of the "single" team, was dark with care, for Jones, the married men's crack bat, was piling up runs at an enormous rate. "If we could only get Jones out," murmured Bailer, "we could win the match bands down." And then'an evil thought struck him, and he chuckled. "Billy Tompkins," he whispered to a lad among the spectators, "run round and tell Mrs. Jones that her husband is playing cricket instead of going to work. Here's a penny. Now run!" In Ave minutes' time, a lk-ry-headed woman rushed upon the field, and as soon as he saw her. Jones was "out," and making a record sprint for safety. As his I rata spouse passed the wic kets, she borrowed a stump, an I re port says that she continued tho gama when she caught Joues—aiid won. " So did the bachelors.

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody'want to get rich in a hurry? If so, here is a recipe—'buy wrecks. . A beach boat which cost about £200 to 'build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a large quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally consisted...

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

OLD POETS. If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath a tree,. No grove o£ whispering - saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where the old oaks gather, Serene and good and strong, ' And they would not sigh and tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort o£ poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyeB. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rhyming their hours away, They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes' its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young. For they worry about the wars to be fought And...

Pluck in Defeat. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

Pluck in Defeat. A recent Socialist candidate said of his defeat: "At any rate we put up, we Social ists, a 'brave if hopeless fight. And now, in our defeat, we are as cheery as the traveller. He ibought a ticket, end then, going out on the platform, said: " 'How soon does the train start?' " " 'Why, there she goes now,' said a station hand. 'You've just missed her.' „ "The traveller leapt on to the line and set out in pursuit of the train with all his might. But in two or three minutes he came trudging Iback over the ties. "A laughing crowd had gathered, and the station hand said: " 'Well, did you catch her?' '" 'No,' • said the traveller; 'but, by jingo, I made her puff.'" "Cassell's" for April—the largest magazine in the world—is just issued. There is the same wonderful value, the repeated wonder of fine subjects and favorite writers as in previous numbers.

PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, with its silent melodrama under the dawning heaven's—or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue iUouffetard—or, in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of the drabs in the Place Plpralle? Do we know the romance of your peoples—or the ro manco of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Paquer ettc, little Easter daisy, little flower of Franco—little Paquerette is (lead.

WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it months or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall), And our wand'ring footsteps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall?' When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly soblTmg through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the ■bottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned-the willows with its golden aftermath; And 'we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; ('Tis' the summer-house a-cruising up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the hours 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gotie crashing :by the tieam). ~ But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morrow we'll >be wading.
