CHAPTER XIX. SECOND FIDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 2 June 1916

CHAPTER XIX. Second Fiddle. 'No ; of course that is a mere detail,' agreed Sybil, 'and I have not mentioned, it because—well, because. I thought that so long as I apologised to you that ■was enough, and there was no need to make any further fuss about it.' Ho was not at all sure that he liked having the matter presented in this verv practical fashion. He had not wished to be troubled by the thought that he was having too marked a flirta-: tion. with Captain Desmond's young and only duughtor, because he had an idea that that gentleman might very reasonably object to such a proceeding; all the same, a little flirtation had certainly been agreeable, and he was not willing to give it up altogether. ' Apologise to me!' he protested. ' My dear. Miss Sybil, do think what you are saying ! I was so pleased when I received that kind, thoughtful little letter of yours that it would'be almost impossible to tell you quite how pleased I was. And now you; talk to me about" apologising to nie for i...

CHAPTER XVIII. RIDING TO THE MEET. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 2 June 1916

CHAPTER XVIII. lilPCNG TO THK MkHT. A.PTAIN' DESMOND had mounted Captain Darrington on one of his best hunters; and he had some very good hunters indeed, as Captain Harrington was perfectly aware. So that gentleman was well satisfied and pleased, and disposed to look at things in general from a sunny point of view. Tie, also, considered that Colonel Congrevc's appearance on the scene had been well timed, and that a tete-a-tete ride with Miss-Sybil Desmond would be more enjoyable than a long jog to the meet in the company of that young lady and her father. Ho had boon quite inclined to admire Sybil when he had been at Winipton in the snmmor, and although it would bo going too far to say that he had bestowed any great amount of thought upon her since then, ho had been very ready to accept Captain Desmond's invitation to return there for a few weeks' hunting. And although his readiness had been chiefly due to lie fact that sport in ..Mudshire was nearly sure to be good, and Captain Des...

Commonwealth was Le[?], Further Issue Placed on Market. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 2 June 1916

Gonmoflwtaftli War Ua, Farther Issue Placed on Market. Another issue of the Common wealth War I,ota h«s been launched on the Australian money market, and the full terms ot the prospect us are given in another column; A perusal of the terms will show that generally speaking the issue is similar to the two previous issues as regards rates of In'erest and other conditions, the loan being repayable in 9}£ vears at par and bearing interest at the rate of per cent. A full six months inter" est is payable on the 15th Decem ber next, and as instalments are spread over a period' extending to the 15th. November this represents a substantial bonus to investors. If looked at simply as a gilt" edged investment the issue is again highly attractive, but at this critical juncture in the his tory of the British Empire there are more vital considerations to be borne in mind than the mere qaes. 'ion of the attractiveness of the j Loan as an investment, In a recent British manifesto signed by many of t...

The annual meeting of members of the Maldon Junior Football Club will be held at the Grand Hotel on Wednesday evening next, commen cing at 7.30 sharp : good attendance desired.—H. Nesbitt and F. Baker Joint Hon. Sees,—Advt. It Is hardly necessary to remind the public of the football match to be played in the shire reserve to morrow (Saturday) between the local miners and fire brigade, the ! profits of which will be devoted to the Maldon Hospital and Worn Out Miners' Pund, Both teams are being strongly represented, and a ding-dong contest should even tuate. As there will be no compe tition either in second-rate or senior football this year, Saturday's fixture may be regarded as a novelty, ; and as the public have responded nobly in the past to any appeal made for charity we fee] sure that on thia occasion they will keep up their reputation by attending in large numbers, Keen rivalry exists between the two clsbs, each of which will strain every nerve to win, t...
