PEBBLES ON THE SHORE
BY: ALPHA OF THE PLOUGH (ALFRD GEORGE GARDINER)
CATEGORY: LITERATURE -- SHORT STORIES

PEBBLES
ON THE SHORE
Alpha of the Plough

... collecting toys
And trifles for choice matters, worth a sponge;
As children gathering pebbles on the shore

TO
ALL WHO LOVE
THE COTTAGE IN THE

BEECHWOODS
1916
PREFACE

These papers were begun as a part of a causerie in _The Star_, the other
contributors to which--men whose names are household words in contemporary
literature--wrote under the pen names of "Aldebaran," "Arcturus" and
"Sirius." But the constellation, formed in the early days of the war, did
not long survive the agitations of that event, and when "Arcturus" left for
the battlefield it was finally dissolved and "Alpha of the Plough" alone
remained to continue the causerie. This selection from his papers is a sort
of informal diary of moods in a time of peril. They are pebbles gathered on
the shore of a wild sea.
