II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 13 June 1914
A little kick, a shudder, and the great Gneugeot swept rushing over the grass of the aerodrome. Traill keyed the snoring engine up and up. then, with the easy lift of an athlete taking a hurdle, the plane was off the ground. Traill's machine banked sharply, and the plane swung up in lyric cir cles en spiral. In a moment they were above the highest lace-work of trees, and before them in the clarity of the morning lay, like a pattern of bright jewellery, the valley that is the centre of Pomerannia. Train hoicked his machine up quickly to avoid the down-trend of the trees, swept gently to the left, and in an instant had opened out, and they were skimming in their ef-. fortless and Irresistible rush north wards. The Baronessa leant forward from I the passenger seat and shouted in his ear. "Thirty-one minutes' start. Can we catch him?" Traill nodded to a trembling steel finger on a dial. As the woman look ed, the finger crept round from figure to figure. Now it was 63, now it was 70; in ...
THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. I. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 13 June 1914
THE AIRMAN AND THE ANARCHIST. AN AVIATOR'S MAD FLIGHT AND FIGHT FOR THE LIFE OF A KING. I. Three perspiring and explosive men and a woman as calmly beautiful and as regal as one of Bouguereau's Madonnas, called Frazer Traill out of bed in the bitter grey of the morning. Frazer Traill had been working late into the night, putting the final touches to his monoplane for the big £5000 duration flight. He was in an irritable mood. He refused to per form the ceremony of donning an ade quate costume, and, in pyjamas and dressing gown, went down at the heels of the night-porter to the hotel lounge. When he looked into the calm eyes of the woman, he wished at least he had brushed his hair. The men annoyed him. They were excitable creatures, true Latin sons 01 the Pomerannia principality, in which they all were at that moment. They all talked together. They as saulted him with their visiting cards. From the wild and eddying cloud of their conversation Frazer Traill un derstood that they wante...
Surprising the Parson. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 13 June 1914
Surprising the Parson. A provincial laborer recently lost the greater part of his furniture through a lire. The vicar of the par ish headed a subscription list, and the sum of nine pounds was raised for the benefit of the family. Fearing, as is often the case, that the money would not be laid out to the best ad vantage, the reverend gentleman ac companied the man and his wife to the furniturp. stores,, and advised them in their purchases. They totalled to seven-and-slx above the amount collected, which sum the generous vicar paid himself. "There, now, I think we've finished," he remarked to the couple. A whispered consultation between the man and wife followed. "The mis sus was wonderin' whether you un derstood bicycles, sir," explained the man, "and she thought. If you did, maybe you wouldn't mind giving me a hint about what sort of a machine I'd better buy." "You surely can't afford to 'buy a bi cycle, James?" remarked the amazed vicar. "Oh, yes, air!" chimed the woman, proudly ex...

III. The country Hung past beneath them, 'blurred like a film. The De Bolli mono grew larger before tnem, but before them, too, grew tho massy and sombre magnificence of the foyal forest. j The plane was but two miles away, tne Venne Forest less than twelve." | Traill cajoled his machine yet high er. He wanted to be above the De Polli in the test of skill and daring I that was presently to come. Ho was balancing himself even against the wind pressure like a thing of springs and wire. His handsome face was strained and tense, all his muscleB braced taut, his quick hands flngerel I the controls with exquisite delicacy, and under him the great plane respon ded like a thing vibrant and alive. The De Bolli came nearer and near er in perceptible degrees. They could see the back of the anarchist FrasN naic as he sat rigid, concentrated on the working of his machine, totally unaware, thanks to the noise of his own tractor, of their approach. They could see the play of his hands as he nursed...
