This story, the first instalment of which will appear in our next issue, is a typically Australian one, dealing with life in the country from a woman's point of view. In it Miss Morris tells how Rosetta Marriot, a girl used only to city life, marries a man on an up-country farm whose life and thoughts are devoted to the land and his work. He fails to realise in his absorption in his work the dreary drudgery of his wife's lot, unrelieved, as it is, by any variety or the small entertainments and comforts of life for which most women long. Only Rosetta's pluck and endurance and her husband's sudden enlightenment carry them over the crisis that arose from his thoughtless selfishness.'
