CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

CHAPTER III. Before Peter Bellairs left Bloem fontein he had a Jong interview with the lawyers, Messrs. ICrux and Kru ger. They gave liim a copy of part of the will, which satisfied him that his friend 1 ad dealt fairly toy him. A ■ the rest of the money, which Paul Danvers called His pile, was secured for the maintenance of Sheila. It was to be hers -without let or hindrance. It was to be liers if she married even at seventeen, and it,was to toe hers if at the age of twenty-one she were still unmarried. But the sum of Paul Danvers' wealth was not mentioned. Peter ask ed Mr. Kruger what it amounted to, and to his astonishment was told that this was a secret which would not Ibe revealed until the money was hand ed over to the young heiress. All Kruger would permit himself to say was this: "It is a large sum—a very large sum, but'I am not allowed to mention the amount. That was one of my client's strictest injunctions.

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in a tiny villa in South Kensington. Even the smallest villars are expensive in that part of the world. She was a slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and a faintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, but 110 one could call Margaret Dale .beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was lialph, and his mother, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did come into her head, and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. She was very poor, very poor in deed, and did not like poverty. She was considered by her neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. She was still young, and when, some time ago, she had met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-eyed...

"I was the lucky one, in one sense," he added alter a pause. "We both made up our minds to be rich, but somehow I got the gold and—you?" "I am a poor man still," answered er Bellairs.

WHAT IS A GENIUS? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

WHAT IS A GENIUST We ofteu hear and read of what art called geniuses. It is generally sup [posed that they are men who stand [aside from the great mass o£ mankind 'and do things wi,th ease which other? 'can do or?jy by great painstaking. » I If that i3 tie idea of geniuses, there are none. Thare never was a man born ■with such power and exaltation that he could do anything without labor.

LAKES THAT WERE ONCE SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

LAKES THAT WERE ONCE SEAS. The Great Salt Lake, it has Just ■ been discovered, is gradually drying up, and the Inliabi^Jits of Salt Lake City seem quite surprised. They ought not to be. All salt lakes owe their salinity to the fact of their having no outlet, and such a lake without an outlet is a dying lake. Nor is death usually long delayed, speaking geologically. Lakes ICoko Nor and Lob Nor were undoubtedly extensive inland seas not so very many decades ago, yet Sven Hedin found them the other day reduced to mere acrid puddles, set in the midst of well-nigh .limitless salt deserts that once were their beds. The terrible Tsikla-malcan desert, too, in which Hedin nearly died of thirst, was once the bed of just such a lake. So also were the salt deserts •_ ot. Persia..-"Northern Tibet la studded \>r«3cc»» ot CesBlcn tion. -The, Aral and the Caspian "seas" were at one time far more ex tensive than Is now the case, proving that they, too, are undergoing the in evitable process of de...

BUSINESS COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

BUSINESS COURTSHIP. Ai) amusing case was once decided £ in a Frankfort police court. It ap- I pears that a cook, 110 longer quite I young, was courted by a tailor some- ■ what younger than she. On Sun- ' days, and occasionally during the I week, the gallant lover was in the habit of taking his lady for extended promenades and visits to restaurants, where the latter always paid the ex penses. She also provided him re gularly with his supper. Presently, however, the awful truth was brought home to the cook that she was not the only friend on whom the man of the scissors and the need le lavished his affections. Nothing loth, she went to the nearest police I court, suing the faithless one for all the expenses of the clandestine meals provided by her, anil all the money spent when "walking out" with hira. The tailor, however, was once again too much for her. Instead of appearing before the tribunal as a repentant sinner, he came nto court with a long bill in his hand, on which was an acc...

' THE WELL-KNOWN BORE. Swift's opinions on this subject are worth perusal:— "Nothing is more generally exploded than the folly of talking too much; yet I rarely remember to have seen five people together where some one among them hath not been predomin ant in that kind, to the great constraint and disgust of all the rest. But among such as deal in multitudes of words, none are comparable to the sober, de liberate talker, who "proceedeth with much thought and caution, maketh his preface, branclieth out into several di gressions, findeth a hint that putteth him in mind of another story, which he promisetli to tell you when this is done; cometli back regularly to .his subjcct, cannot readily call to mind some person's name, holdeth his head, complaineth-of his memory; the whole company all this while in suspense; at length, says he, it- is no matter, and so jjoes on.

THRIFT MEANS PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 April 1914

THRIFT MEANS PROGRESS. "The man wlio spends all the.money he earns Is like a mill-horse. He goe& round and round at his daily routing but he never gets forward or makes any real progress." Such is the dictum o£ a successful business man who dates his prosperity -from the time when he began to lay by money for the future. The habit of saving, he points out, is.a valuable one in several ways. Not only is- the thrifty man provided 'against adversity, but his conscious ness of the fact gives him the confi dence needed in embarking on new enterprises. Moreover, money has a way of at tracting money. It grows by the ad dition of interest, and also by the stimulus it gives its possessor to in crease it by constant contributions from his surplus. In his story, "The Clipper of the Clouds," Jules Verne gave us.an ac count of an air-ship which made thrill ing reading when we were younger. Persons of mature years might well read it now, as a foretaste of the mar vels which before long we...
