CHAPTER III. The Long Night. [Newspaper Article] — Castlemaine Mail — 3 October 1917
CHAPTER in. The Long Night. The deed was done, done beyond re call. It seemed to Ralph as if he had been the victim of some hypnotic force. Surely, with his own hand he had never struck a fellow-creature down like that! And there had been no provocation, no battling of one life against another, no mere struggle for existence. It seemed impossible —but there it was. And ail in the twinkling of an oy&. A red patch had blazed and burned J before him. As to the rest, he could feel the handle of the paper-knife in his grasp, a grasp so painful that the llesh of hjs palm was bruised. There was crimson' on his right hand, dull, glowing patches like carbuncles on the shining surface of the dining tablo. On the carpet, Stephen Holt lay stretched at length, face down wards, his hands flung over his head. A great band of crimson stained the delicate, cream and gold and blue of the priceless Persian carpet; there were specks of horrid red on the greac bowj of tea-roses on the table. All...

Many people do not happen to know it by that name, and are a 'bit hazy as to | the exact requirement of the Associa tion. 'Webster answers the question in this way. "Slogan : 'In Gaelic, sluagh-ghairm, meaning an army cry. The war cry or gathering word of a I Highland elan in 'Scotland; hence any | rallying cry."

ENTERTAINMENTS ? 'FOYiLEIS iPA-RAMOU.XT PICTURES. GOD'S 'CRUOIiBLE TO-A'IGHT. A comedy drama always 'sends an audience tome well satisfied, so thai God's Crucible, the .big 'Blue IBird mas terpiece to 'be shown at the Town Hall to-night 'by Foyle's Paramount Pic tures is sure to attract a very big at tendance, as the 'lighter vein introduc ed into this subject by clever child performers relieves as well as accen tuates the s,plendid character work of George .Fernandez as the old groucli, or as one critic savs, "the man with a shrivelled soul." God's Crucible is the story of a ■young man with stern par ents. His lover deserts him, and he becomes morose and grouchy. Hav ing been crossed in love himself, he cannot bear seeing young people happy and tries to influence his young ward. >But she is a iwilful young lady, and the old man's antagonism only makes her more determined than over to marry her lover.
