CHAPTER XL. THE HEAD IN THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

I CHAPTER XL. THE HEAD IN THE WALL. To be handed at sunrise next morn ing ! Over and over Dick repeated the words to himself. They throbbed unceasingly through Ms brain w en he sat down on the bench, with his back to the wall, and tried to rea lize what it all meant. At the time of his capture he had anticipated the worst, but somehow it was different now, with the reality staring him in the face. He had heard the sentence and he shrank from death with hor ror and rebellion. He was not a coward, but it seem ed to him bitterly hard to die just when the future had turned bright. He had not valued life very much in the past, but it was a thing to be . prized with Lucille to share it. And , to lose her ! To be hurried out of the | world leaving behind him the woman ; he loved so passionately - it was a black and torturing thought. He did not utterly despair, it is true ; but at present, while the im pression left by Gore's visit was so keen, he was in no mood to consider his situation f...

CHAPTER XXXIX. THE SENTENCE OF THE COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

CHAPTER XXXIX. THE SENTENCE OF THE COUNCIL It was about two o'clock in the morning, and. the lower town was comparatively quiet ; at intervals a distant voice, or an echoing footstep broke the silence. This state of peace fulness, the Russian assured Dick, was a sure sign that Carlos had not yet been missed or discovered ; otherwise there would have been a widespread alarm. So the two pushed on hopeful! y through the dark and deserted streets, aiming straight lor tho ap proach to the upper town. Tbey were half way to it when a significant thing occurred. A man stepped from 0 cross passage, tapped Yolbortlx on the shoulder, and drew him to one side.' Dick waited in some alarm, while the two held a brief and whispered conversation. Then the stranger hur ried off, and Volborth returned to his companion. "It is bad news," he announced, gravely. "There is a warrant out for my arrest, and a lot of Gore's men have been quietly searching for me. They, are in the neighbourhood now, Valentine...

(All Rights Reserved.) T H E « A- Story of a Strange and Exciting Adventure. By W. Murray Graydon, Author of "Matthew Quin," "The Curse of the Oardews," etc., etc. PART 14. CHAPTER XXXVIII. A THRILLING MEETING. The Russian was brief and to the point, explaining what he had to say very clearly. Dick was to swim out to the Malta, and through Grenville obtain an interview with the com manders of the two cruisers. This conference, it was hoped, would re sult in a speedy, settlement as pro posed in behalf of the conspirators ; which, in substance, was as follows : At 12 o'clock on the ne^t night, by means of a previously-laid torpedo, the thin shell of rock on the seaward side of the cliff was to be blown up. Through the passage which was cer tain to be opened a hundred marines in boats were ' to advance at once and make a landing straight across the lagoon. Here thej would be join ed by a few of Volborth's men, and led without delay to the forcing of the North Gate. The other conspira t...

Ladies' Column. TO WHITEN THE HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

TO WHITEN THE HANDS, A mixture to whiten arid soften, the ' hands is composed of twenty parts each of lanolino and gly cerino, ten parts of borate of soda, two parts of eucalyptus oil, and 25 drops of essence of bitter almonds. These must be mixed well together and after application the hands should bo covered with loose gloves.' Professionals playing at concerts sometimes use the following lotion just before their appearance in pub lic : Oxide of zinc, half an ounco ; glycerine ami rose water, four oun ces. ' Apply with a small sponge, then gently wipe off the moisture, and dust the hands with boracic acid and starch powder. It is best to apply it witli a piece of wash leather. Warts on the hands are disfiguring, but it is easy to get rid of them, and they will soon disappear if touched daily with a fine camel hair brush, dipped in glacial acetic acid. Be careful, however, not to touch the skin at t-he base of the wart.. A beautifully proportioned hand is far rarer than a beautiful...

SOPHISTICATED PARSNIPS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

;SOPHISTIC-ATED PARSNIPS. When just plain, boiled, this vege table is rarely appreciated, except by persons who have a strong lilt ing for it. .Dressed as follows, it will prove very relisliablc. Peel and boil the parsnips, putting a little fat in the water they are. cooked in. Then cut them into slices, spread a little butter on each slice. Put. the slices into n hot vege table dish, and .pour over a cupful of white sauce made with milk, two dessertspoonfuls of flour, rubbed in butter, pepper, and salt to taste. Boil for a minute or two to take off the rawness of the Hour. Serve very hot. Curtain-rings sometimes run w'ith great difficulty, and seem to stick to the pole. To remedy this, take all the rings oil and weil rub the pole with tiara/tin until it is quite smooth, when the rings may lie re placed ; they will then glide along with the greatest ease.

V, NATIMUK, The first matches under the aus pices of the Arapiles District Football Association for the Wh«lan medals were played on Saturday, Natimiak meeting Noradjuha at Nora ljuha and Nurrabiel meeting Lowan at Lowan It is a coincidence that the visiting teams won.

Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 29 May 1914

Then the Judge Laughed. 9 HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is tha oratory of counsel at times, but one would have sorae difliculty, perhaps, in finding a more amusing' example of highfalutin legal language than the following, which is quoted from "Law and Laughter" : " ' Slander, gentlemen,' said the learned counsel, in a libel action, ' like a boa-constrictor of gigantic sizo and immeasurable proportions, wraps the coil of its unwieldy body about its unfortunate victim, and, heedless of the shrieks of agony that come from the utmost depths 01" its victim's soul, loud and reverbe rating as the night thunder that rolls in the lieavens, it finally breaks its unlucky neck upon the iron wheel of public opinion ; forcing him to desperation, then to madness, and finally crushing him in the hideous iaws of mortal death.1 " No less amusing was the address of the American Judge Rodgers to a prisoner who had been convicted in his court in Louisiana. " Pri soner. stand up !" he said...
