The Tories, lie wrote, were expecting to see a rough and shaggy man, dressed with an un couth disregard for the ways of society, a sort of Birmingham Orson who would probably scowl fiercely at his opponents and would deliver his opinions in tones cf-thunder.

CHAPTER IV. LEILA IS AFRAID. I. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 March 1914

CHAPTER IV. LEILA IS AFRAID., I. A seaman would have helped Leila up the ladder, but Hugh pushed him aside, almost savagely. There was a good electric light just above the gangway, and it showed him the figure of a woman wrapped in a long Shetland coat : of a child whose face could hardly be seen for the-fur cap which covered his black curls. And yet he would have known Leila and Desdy had the place been black as night. She had come to him—ho never doubted that she would not return. * A small kit-bag was all the lug gage she carried, and he perceived that her hand trembled very much, and closed so nervously upon its handle that the seaman could hardly take it from her. When Hugh had I led her to the upper deck, she stared about her with the haunted look of a woman pursued, but chiefly over towards the town of Newcastle, from which she had fled. What he said to her he never knew ; lie tried to tell her that she was welcome to the ship, but it was many minutes be fore the man himself ...

Complaint was last week made to the Prime Minister and the Federal Treasurer by a deputa tion representing the Chamber of Agriculture against the duplica tion which at present took place iii regard to tne valuation of land for taxation purposes.
