Excerpt from Quality Corner: A Study of Remorse

HE little town of Ringway sat huddled on its wood - crowned hill side like Puck on a leaf, and its ruler was the strong west wind that blew up from the Irish sea some twenty miles away. This warm wet sweeping wind clothed all the land with unfading green, as emerald in winter as in spring, and gave to Ringway a curious goblin beauty of sudden lights and transient glooms, of quick sparkling showers, of soft colouring of deep green moss and ashen-grey lichen and blue mist - a dusky Arcadia.

Excerpt from Quality Corner: A Study of Remorse

'What time is it?' asked the man at the window. 'Half-past twelve' carelessly answered the man in the street, walking on with leisurely step.

It was not until he had gone some little way that the strangeness of the question struck him. Why, indeed, should, a man indoors ask the time of a man without? And at past midnight? The stroller stopped, reflected a moment, then turned back.

He was an observant, idly inquisitive man; an artist, and the public was beginning to recognise him as such, honouring him after the fashion of Heliogabalus. with much feasting and final smother. Mark Parfitt liked the feasting, and sat tight, lest any should take his place. He meant to move up higher bye-and-bye, and he did. To-night, however, when he answered that curious question addressed to him from an open window, he was but a new-comer at the feast, a young man of three and twenty, who had had singular success with his first picture. His artist friends said that was owing to its being the apotheosis of ugliness. To which criticism Mark briefly replied, 'It pays.'
