Cicely Vibart's Love. (Published by Special Arrangement.) (Copyright.) CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

I Cicely Vibarl's Love. By ANNIE HAYNES Author of "Lady Carew's Secret," "Footprints of Fate," Etc., Etc. (I'ublisliod by Special Arrangemen (Copyright.) CHAPTER III., For a moment Cicely stood as if pet rified, then she bent over thaE silent : figure, tried to raise it, to move it, but it was impossible to touch the big in ert form, to look into the ghastly, face, and not to see that all human help was in vain. "What-what could have ? killed him?" Cicely asked herself, glancing around. She remembered hearing him say that his heart was weak; he must have had an attack and died there with help close at hand. The receiver of the telephone hung down as though Bearmain had been in the act of speaking, and on the table lay a piece of paper. Cicely caught sight of her brother's name, "Eric Vibart," of a big careless "Ala ric Bearmain" scrawled across, and' realised that this was the bill-the signature that would ruin Eric." Even that LOW seemed of small importance beside the stupendous fa...

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XIV. THE WRONGS OF PRUSSIAN POLAND. STORY TOLD BY A POLISH WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

' AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XIV. THE WRONGS OF PRUSSIAN POLAND. STORY TOLD BY A POLISH WOMAN. ' In 1760 Prussia seized valuable and extensive Polish provinces. Ever since then the Poles, in these provin ces, have been persecuted, but they, nevertheless, remain to this day, in spirit and aspirations, Polish to their hearts' core. It is impossible to dis possess the Poles of their passionate love: of country. They are proud of their heroic ancestors; they have proved their Wonderful bravery against fearful odds, and the warrior spirit burns so ardently in their breasts that they have not relinquish ed the hope of again existing as an independent kingdom, and this in spite of having been subjected to every possible humiliation, scorn, in sult and tyranny by their Prussian conquerors. As usual with the Prus sians, they started at once, after their victory, to Prussianise the coun try and the people. Prussian State schools were established in every town and village, and the Polish chi...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

CHAPTER IV. Cicely lay tossing from side to side in lier little white bed all that live long night. She heard every hour strike from the old church in the square hard by. When the dawn broke she sat up among her pillows, clasp ing her arms round her knees, and stared at the grey streak that filtered through her blinds. It had been a wild night, the wind had howled round the house, making the doors creak and the windows rattle; now it had subsided to some extent, and the rain was pouring down in tor rents. Cicely could hear it beating against the window panes; it all seemed Part of her general misery. What had happened at Bearmain's last night? How soon had Alaric Bearmain been found? And-most terrible thought of all-one that drove the blood from her cheeks, that had only occurred to her this last hour. I What if Bearmain had not been really I dead-if her leaving him without get ting help for him should have made that help come too late? She shivered 'as If with ague as she pictured ...

ANOTHER MAN'S. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

ANOTHER MAN'S. By H. Merriman. lly wife is good. She is sweet and wholesome. So is bread and butter. But I cannot live on bread and but ter. I must have steak and mushrooms and oysters. I must have dishes the composition of which is a mystery. There is nothing n.ysterlous or tantal ising about good bread and butter. I must have cake-cake with rais ins and citron and spices. I cannot live on bread and butter, however sweet and good and wholesome. But one cannot explain this to the bread and butter. Therefore I explained to my wife that there was a great deal of busi ness to attend to evenings at the of fice. She was sorry. She said so. I said so too. One evening I happened to glance in through the door of a private dining room which had carelessly been left open. Within was the husband of a woman I know-very well. He was leaning across the tiny table under the rose-red lights, hir dark, expressive eyes glowing out of his handsome face at the woman who sat opposite him. I glanced at t...

Federal Elections. MR. HUGHES AND THE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

Federal Elections. MR. HUGHES AND THE FARMERS. There is one plain meaning in the Labor manifesto to the electors of Australia. It is, "Do not trust Mr. Hughes, and fear Conscription." To such a poor thing has the Labor pol icy for Australia come. Mr. HugheS, in his great speech at Bendigo, gave abundant reasons why he should be trusted. First, he is with the Empire in this grave Nation al crisis. There is not a corner of the Empire where loyal people do not know Mr. Hughes as one of the stal warts of the Empire, pledged by word and action to see the war through in such a way that the German military machine will no longer be a menace to tlie peaceful development of the British Empire, and, especially, will 110 longer be a grave menace to the freedom of Australia. Ho is pledged by word and action to see, as lie says, "that Australia shoulders her full re sponsibilities, as well as privileges, as a full partner in the British Em pire." For that reason he is to be fully trusted to lead...

THE MIDDLE-AGED MAN. Can His Ailments Be Cured? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 April 1917

THE MIDDLE-AGED MAN. Can His Ailments Be Cured? The medical correspondent of "The Times" comments on .two statements bearing on the prospects of life of middle-aged men. The first is made by Dr. Charles F. Bolduan, director of the Bureau of . Public Health Education in New York, who, in the "Monthly Bulletin of the Department of Health pf the City of New York," affords a compar ison of the city's life tables of the two triennia 1879-81 and 1909-11. This comparison makes it evident that the man of forty years or over has now actually a shorter expectation of life than he used to have, the decrease amounting to a year or more accord ing to age. In the same period the expectation of life at birth has been increased ten times. Further, the fall in the life expecta tion of the middle-aged man is gen eral throughout the United States, and the death-rate per 1000 at the age period 45 to 54 has increased by nearly two per cent, during the last ten years, and between 54 and 63 by nearly seve...

War Savings Certificates. ARRANGEMENTS are now in full swing for the sale of War Savings Certificates to all members of the public who have money to invest, or, who can, by the exercise of thrift and saving, make money available for that purpose, and it cannot be too strongly impressed on all classes of the community that it is their duty to assist to the fullest extent possible in providing the funds necessary for the prosecution of the war. The principle of War Savings Certificates which has been adopted gives an unusual oppor tunity to the small investor, in fact it is the poor man's chance to render a patriotic service to his country, while at the same time bettering himself No better gilt edged investment has been offered to the man of small means, and he should not neglect to take advantage of it. An amount of 17/6 will purchase a certificate for £1, payable 3 years after the date of purchase, the difference 17/6 and £1 representing compound interest for the period at the rate...
