CHAPTER XII. Lola. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915
CHAPTER XII. Lola. Several times I re-read the account of the dastardly outrage. Too well I knew how dangerous and desperate a man was Jules Jean jean, the studious and apparently harmless Belgian doctor, who had lodged in the Overstrand road and had strolled about the pier and prom enade of Cromer. His name, during the last three years or so, had become so well known from end to end of Europe as an anarchist who defied all the powers of law and order; a man who moved from place to place with n arvellous swiftness, and who pass ed from frontier to frontier under the very noses of the commissaries of po lice stationed there. His narrowest escape of capture had been one day in Charleroi, where, while sitting before the Cafe des XXV., he had been recognised 'by an inspector of the French Surete, who was in Belgium upon another matter. The inspector called a local agent of police, who suddenly pounced upon him, but in an instant Jeanjean had drawn a revolver, with which he shot the unfo...
The Place of Dragons CHAPTER XI. The Affair on the Seventeenth. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915
By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XI. The Affair on the Seventeenth. I The ingenious theft of old Gre- I sory's treasure created tlie greatest | consternation amongst the police, though the truth was carefully con cealed from the public. Trseton pledged Mr. and Mrs. Dean and their servant to secrecy, there fore all that was known in Cromer was that there had been an attempt ed burglary at Beacon House. Cromer is a quiet, law-abiding town and burglars had not been there for years. Therefore the inhabitants were naturally alarmed and now care fully locked and bolted their doors at night. I leturned the shoe to the police station, but made no mention of the result of my test. From the first 1 had guessed that old Gregory would not leave his trea sure behind. Yet, if he were not guilty of Craig's murder, why had he fled? Lola had v'site'd him, and Jeanjean had been in Cromer. Those two facts...

FOR HOME AND FIRESIDE. •'My Country Needs Them All." For Home and Fireside we fight, For all that's brave and true. For right against the foeman's might Who would not dare and do? Is there a man of British breed But answers to the call: "Here am I—heart, and brain, and hand, My country needs them all!"? For wife and weans we gladly march Against the ruthless foe, One upward glance to heaven's blue arch To' strengthen every blow! Where is the husband, father, son, Who does not cry to-day: "I'm ready, for the home I love To fight as well as pray"? Yes, and for one whose plighted troth Still echoes in the heart, The boys have sworn a sacred oath To play a hero's part. Where is the girl between the seas But bids this last adieu: "God keep you lad; you're doubly dear Because you're doubly true"? For King and country, aye, for these! For Freedom, best of all! On alien soil, on stormy seas, We'll fight, and, if we fall, The hearts we love, the lips we kiss, Are shielded with our breast Bet...

REDUCE FIESH WITH SEA IEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915
REDUCE flESH WITH SEA IEAVES. Any man or woman who is troubled with a burden of excessive fat can easily reduce to Any desired"amount by follow ing the simple, harmless plan of eating sea leaves obtained from plants growing in the sea off the coast of France. Natives of this part of the coast readily get the plant itself, but for the conveni ence of those not so fortunatly situated, most chemists keep them in compressed or tablet form under the chemical name of Salith leaves, and if taken according to the simple directions that accompany them, will invariably reduce flesh at the rate of two or three pounds a week, and at the same time greatly improve the general health. It is interesting to note that when salith leaves are used the skin remains firm without any tendency to become flabby and wrinkled.
RECORDING FAMOUS VOICES. "Stars" Sing to Talking-Machines. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915
RECORDING FAMOUS VOICES. "Stars" Sing to Talking-Machines. "Billy" Williams, the well-known, music-iall comedian who died re cently, possessed a beautiful singing voice which, .produced remarkably clear gramophone records. The re productions of his songs were so life like ttat they sold in thousands, aaid the comedian must have drawn large sums in royalties. Famous artists, such as Caruso, Melba and Tetraz zini, make many thousands of pounds by records of their voices, and even the less-famed performers find it a lucrative side-line. Singers' voices are recorded on phonographic discs with the aid of several ingenious devices. The per former is ushered into a barn-like hall, at one end of which a monstrous brass born extends out into the room. In front of this is a platform on which the singer stands. Grouped around are a strange assembly of musicians.. They are equipped with instruments especially designed to produce soft, melodious music which will not drown the singer's voice. The...

It would only require a few days of. warm tempera-^ ture to put the new growth into such good heart that stock generally would be materially benefited. It was unfortunate in some degree that in...

"FORBIDDEN FRUIT." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 4 September 1915
"FORBIDDEN FRUIT." A tree known as "Eve's Apple Tree" grows in Ceylon. The blossom has a very pleasant scent, b.ut the really remarkable feature of the tre.e —the o&e to which it owes its name —lis the fruit. It is beautiful, and hangs from the tree in a peculiar manner. The apple has an orange tint on the outside, and is deep crim son within, and e&ch one has the ap pearance of having had a piece "bit ten out of it. This fact, together with its poisonous quality, led the Mohammedans to represent it as the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden, and to warn men against ite noxious properties.

On Wednesday (Wattle Day) the senior girls of the State school made a tour of Happy "Valley and Lucky Womans, selling wattle. Their takings for the day amounted to £1 4s, which sum is to be expended in the purchase of wool to be made up for the soldiers. For some time past the Education De partment has been unable to supply the schools with wool, so the effort of the girls will keep them occupied till Eurther supplies are available.
