The STORY-TELLER A SEVEN YEARS' SENTENCE. A SEVEN YEARS' SENTENCE. CHAPTER XXIV.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
A SEVEN YEARS' SENTENCE. By T. C. BRIDGES. CHAPTER XXIV.-Continued. "Oh, Jill is like thai, I know," said Jerry half angrily. "That's just why I wouldn't tell her. But you're more sen- sible, Fay. That's why I'm asking your advice." "You mean you want me to be your accomplice in cheating yourself-isthat It, Jerry?" asked Fay. "Do be serious," begged Jerry. "I don't want Jill io know anything about it if it can possibly be helped. On the other hand, I don't see how I can avoid telling her, because if I don't she will go on believing in this blackmailing business of Faul's." Fay nodded. She was serious enough again now, and at once went right to ths heart of the matter. "You've got to tell her, Jerry. There's absolutely no help for it. But why worry? You" love Jill and she loves you. When you are married what does it matter who owns Stort End?" "But we can't get married," return- ed Jerry quickly.

DISTANT VIEW. LESSON FROM PSALMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
DISTANT VIEW. LESSON FROM PSALMS. A study of the 73rd psalm formed the basis of the address by the Rev, H. M. Wheller in his lunch-time ad- dress at the Albert Street Methodist Church yesterday, when he had an en- couraging increase in public attend- ance. The Psalm, explained the preacher, explained the confusion of mind caused by the misfortunes of life, and the problem had been intensified by the prosperity of those who cared nothing for truth. To appreciate the city, he said, one must see It from a vantage point. One saw little of the beauty of the City Hall If right against Its walls, but from a little distance away Its architecture was very apparent. Similarly the view of Brisbane as seen from Mount Coot-tha was charming and more embracing than one could gain from Inside the city Itself. This also was the position with life, and to get It In Its right perspective, one must rise above the confusion of the moment. One of the most important contributions of religion was that it g...
TRADE AND FINANCE. The Foreign Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
TRADE AND FINANCE. ffThe Foreign Exchanges. Our cable message to-day rather anticipates an accentuation of the for- eign exchanges situation. The London Daily Mail correspondent considers that the policy of the authorities Is to ' allow sterling io follow the dollar and not the franc. That was suggested in "this column last week in the reference to the inaction of the Exchange Equalisation Committee In Britain. The implication is that such following would mean depreciation of sterling in . relation to the currency of countries still on the gold standard and appre- ciation in relation to the dollar. That ' would be a serious thing in a trading sense for tlie gold adherents. It lias been said that the depreciation side . favours British trade very materially, but as Professor Gregory, - the very eminent British economist and bank- ing authority, pointed out a little while since the continental countries would be encouraged to proceed with their ' quota schemes and "the higher tariff r...
