Then in an accjss of politeness, the attendant projeded with the tea to the guard, stiffly drawn up in the courtyard, the men with rifles shouldered.. " The sergeant looked round dis tractedly for guidance, he had no precedent for a: tea-paTty on duty. The men stared with cool contempt at the spoonful' of acid tea. Fearing lest a refusal migh^.jbe an offence, I hastily said " Sergeant, let the men take it.' He looked at me for an instant with a long, horrified look of remonstrance ; then, stepping to the front, as if drilling, he gave the word : ' Order arms ! Ground arms! Take the cups !

CHAPTER VI. GUY'S PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 24 January 1914
CHAPTER VI. GUY'S PLAN. Guy knew his mother better than Bhe knew him, and that knowledge told him that she would never yield her position as long as there was any hope that he would yield his. And he felt that she misjudged him so much that she would not be con vinced that he was in earnest until he had put it out of the reach of doubt. But how was that to be accom plished ?
