CHAPTER XXIV. The Trail of the Serpent. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

CHAPTER XXIV. I The Trail of the Serpent. Hitherto , Claude Novell had been more successful in his investigations tlian he could possibly have anticipat ed. He had not only been able to identify Boloski, but he had also ob tained some useful information with reference to the Oracle's latest intend ed victim. On the other hand, however, he had failed altogether to trace the unfor tunate lady on whose behalf, chiefly, he had undertaken the task, and' lie knew well that until he had discharg ed that important part of his trust he would not be in a position to take any active measures against Boloski. While, therefore, congratulating himself upon his wonderfully narrow escape trom failing into tho power of his enemy, he could not help regret ting that he was unable to take full advantage of the information which his correspondent in India had sent to him so mysteriously. The remarkable proof which he had obtained of Boloski's resolve to entrap liim in- the lonely house at Wimbledon made...

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE ORATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE . ORATOR. An Italian writer, Signor L. M. Pat rizi, has made a careful study of the phjBiology of the orator. He holds that eloquence is conditioned by pure ly physical laws. The structure of an orator's phrase depends on his respira tory rhythm and the capacity of his thorax. Thus the leanness of Demos thenes rattles through his rough and broken speech. The long-drawn-out periods of Cimero are explained as being the effect of a chest so con structed that, being obliged to suspend respiration at intervals, he could paune before taking in a fresh supply of oxygen. From the point of view of physique, the orator is pronounced to be mag nificent; next to the dancer, he is the most muscular of artists. Psycholo gically, he is related to the soldier rather than to the philosopher type. On the other hand, lie has no reflective power and little judgment; his intel ligence is scanty, and liis memory hy pertrcpliied. According to Signor Pat rizi, eloquence has scarcely a...

CHAPTER XXV. The Weakest Goes to the Wall. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

CHAPTER XXV. The Weakest Goes to the Wall. I Many people have terrible experi ences in their sleep, and when they awake to find that they have only been dreaming a sensation of wonderful : thankfulness comes over them. | With Claude Novell the feeling was just the reverse. When he came to himself he thought at firBt that he had been the victim of a hideous night mare, but ho soon discovered that his experiences had been only too real, i He "ound himself, bound hand and foot, lying in a large underground cel lar, which he soon recognised, by the light of the flickering lamp, to be that of Queensmere House, at IWlmbledpn. The discovery convinced him that he had been deliberately waylaid* and kidnapped, and that his captor was none other than Bolosltl. In vain, therefore, had he avoided the trap which had previously been so cunningly set for him in the same house. Boloski had succeeded in'-his object, and Claude had the terrible mortification of feeling that he was a prisoner at a time...

THE WEAPONS OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

THE WEAPONS OF PEACE. Popular education in ^Finland lias been very highly specialised. One of the features of its educational system is the establishment of schools for the children of the poor as distinguished from the upper and middle olasses. It is in relation to a school for the poor ■that Mr. Harry de Windt tells the fol lowing story in his book on .Finland: "It waB ralated to me Dy an Eng lishman who, while passing through Oulu some years ago, made the ac quaintance of a schoolmaster, now de ceased. The traveller expressed sur prise that Finland was permitted by Russia to retain her currency. " "Russia dare not take it from us,' was the schoolmaster's reply. "'Dare not! Why, you could net fight Russia?' " 'Oh, yes, we could! "We make guns, and very big guns, here in Ou lu. AVe have an important foundry. Do you care to see it?'

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

iLADJES' LEXTEB. By Cell*. One o£ the fashionable engagements which -was announced last year has been broken off, a piece of news which the girl in the case has been impart ing to her numerous friends, coupled with the announcement of her imme diate departure from Melbourne on a trip to England. . She has cheerfully communicated the fact without giving any detailed information on the sub ject. But numerous friends shrewdh' suspect that the fact of her being "over-young to marry yet" has somn thing to do with the case. The English papers have been full of detailed accounts of a drawing room play which was written by the youthful elder daughter of Lord anil Lady Huntingdon and produced at their country seat. Lady Huntingdon and her son and daughters took part in it. No mention is made in any of the accounts of Lady Huntingdon be ing an Australian girl, which she was, being the elder daughter of the lace Sir Samuel Wilson, of "Ereildoune," near Ballarat, and of "Oakleigh Hall," East St...

A BARGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 28 March 1913

A BARGAIN., A story of an old family relic in the shape of a picture bringing fortune to its owners when on the verge of star vation is told in "The Bargain Book," by C. E. W. Jerningham and Lewis Bettany:— A poor retailer of fruit could hardly earn enough even in good times to buy herself and her three small chil dren bread; her earnings were quite too small to pay the rent of the damp hole that her landlord called a room. The landlord at last distrained for his rent; he took her bed and her wretched furniture, and ordered them to be sold at auction. The widow and her children were present at the sale. Even the best things went for a trifle; it seemed as if not enough would be realised even to pay the rent. Among her belongings was a very small, smoke-dimmed picture of Saint Jerome, an inheritance from her grand mother, which hung over her bed, and to which she and her children offered up their pious prayers. As they were accustomed to do, the children me chanically raised their li...
