    1. Camp Starts In: 228 Days The chambermaid entered the bedroom and we could just hear her quiet voice as, a moment later, she half whispered:

So we left the little room in which we were sitting and moved to the large music-room at the far end of which was a grand piano. Frau Klindworth, Dawson and I sat in the semi-darkness near the door; Klindworths tall but rather shrunken figure moved down the room to the little light that hung above the keyboard. He played some almost unknown pieces of Liszt, interpreting them in a style at once noble and half-ruined. The excitement of playing seemed to increase rather than add strength to his physical weakness, and many wrong notes were struck.

      • Vivamus at justo ut urna porta pulvinar Not often does one find a man of Hall Caines very special gifts endowed with the abilities of a financier. He is as quick and as clever at driving a bargain as a 121Lancashire or Yorkshire mill-owner. There have always been and, I suppose, always will be a large percentage of writers who are constitutionally incapable of looking after their own affairs; they can produce, but they cannot sell. Mr Hall Caine does not belong to these. He, more than any man, contributed to the breakdown of the three-volume novel system. It was he who helped to formulate the Canadian Copyright Laws. With the assistance of Major Pond (who in these days remembers the great Major Pond?) he made tens of thousands of dollars by lecturing to the Americans. He had the acumen and the courage to issue one of his longest novels in two volumes at two shillings net each. He was the first eminent novelist to make a practice of publishing his works in the middle of the August holidaysthe supposed dead season in the publishing world. He has bought farms in the Isle of Man and made them pay. He has had commercial interests in seaside boarding-houses and has shown a bold but wise enterprise in many of his investments. In other words he has, to his honour, continually exhibited abilities that not one artist in a hundred possesses.

      • Pellentesque nunasidp adipiscing sollicitudin dolor id sagittis. There are in London two or three men, not known to the general public, whose influence on modern thought is most profound and most disturbing. Of these men A. R. Orage, the editor of The New Age, is quite the most distinguished. What circulation his paper enjoys, I do not know; it cannot be large; probably it is not more than two or three thousand; perhaps it is not even so much as that. But the men and women who read it are men and women who countpeople who welcome daring and original thought, who hold important positions in the civic, social, political and artistic worlds, and who eagerly disseminate the seeds of thought they pick up from the study of The New Age. Tens of thousands of people have been influenced by this paper who have never even heard its name. It does not educate the masses directly: it reaches them through the medium of its few but exceedingly able readers.

      • Donec sit amet felis a nibh ornare malesuada. Perhaps the most exquisite and the most fragile thing in the world at present is the Chopin playing of Vladimir de Pachmann. For more than a quarter of a century writers have been attempting to reproduce his coloured music in coloured words: they have all failed. De Pachmann is an exotic, a hothouse plant. Not a hothouse plant among many other plants, but a plant living luxuriously and solitarily and with exaggerated self-consciousness in its own hothouse.

      • Etiam et tellus mi, et semper lectus. Of course Im hot. Arent you?

      • Quisque in purus nec purus feugiat consectetur. As one who lives for a last carnival

      • Fusce et ipsum dolor lorem ante, at sollicitudin libero. So I am not among those who feel inclined to discourage him who hankers after Fleet Street. No matter if you live in the waste regions of Sutherland, if you have proved yourself by inducing a number of editors of repute to take your stuff, go in and win! Really, it is very easy.

      • Etiam et tellus mi, et semper lectus. There is a story, and I think the story is true, of a new and inexperienced reporter who was given a trial on the staff of a very famous halfpenny paper. He was not a success, for he bungled everything that was given him to do, and he had not an idea in his head concerning the invention and manufacture of stunts. So he was tried as a book-reviewer, and again failed miserably. They made a sub-editor of him, and once more he was slow and inaccurate. Said the news editor to the editor-in-chief: Im afraid I shall have to get rid of Jones; hes tried almost everything and failed. Oh! has he? returned the editor-in-chief. Well, put him on to writing leaders.

      • Vivamus at justo ut urna porta pulvinar. Really, he began, at length, I cant think of anything to say. Can you? If you can think of something very clever, put it in your article and say I said it. Yes, do say I said it. But, of course, it must be very clever.

        This is just a place holder, so you can see what the site would look like. I think, said he, yes, I believe we have met before somewhere. Where was it, Mr ... er ... Cumberland?

        Praesent quis nisl in velit imper diet suscipit a id quam. But even the halfpenny Press has, in recent years, come to regard its leader columns as one of the most important 106parts of its papers. Of this kind of work I have had little experience. A position as writer of leaderettes was offered me on The Globe, but I was not a success, for I was at the same time writing a great deal of stuff for The Daily Citizen, and, as both papers were equally violent in antagonistic political and social fields, I soon found myself writing solidly and regularly against my own convictions. It is true that a journalist, like a barrister, is generally but a hireling paid to express certain views, but there are few men so intellectually backboneless and ethically flabby that they can, day after day, say both yes and no to the various problems that face them.

        Nullam vulputate elementum consequat. Fusce leo felis, bibendum. I smiled deprecatingly, and produced from my card-case a card bearing the name Gerald Cumberland.
