The Herr Ober .Controlleur at the Custom House came forward, and, much to his in dignation, was received in a non chalant; wjiy\ The. Yankee was ungentlemanly enough not to get out of his carriage or even to take off his.-'hat. The Herr Ober sharp ly demanded the keys of the tour ist's trunks, ' which "his subordinate began handling roughly. s "Here, hands off!" shouted the Yankee. "I didn't come from the United States of America to be con trolled by you. Put those .trunks back. I'll not go through you at all. I'll turn back. I'm in no hurry, and don't, care for losing a day.

CHAPTER XXXVII. MAN'S PERFIDY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 11 July 1914
CHAPTER XXXVII. MAN'S PERFIDY. The Earl of Granthorpe was better than his expectation in the matter of returning home ; though, as be said ' to Lady Westall on leaving her, he was very much afraid that Violet would read his happiness in his face, and so learn his secret before he was ready to divulge it. He reached home late that night, and did not see Violet until the mornin". Then he avoided her, adjourning to his room immediately after breakfast, and ordering a carriage soon after, without saying anything to her as to where he was going-a very unusual thing for him to do ; but she was so full of her own miserable thoughts that she gave it almost no considera tion at all. " Rather late in life to be Cupid'a messenger," said the Earl of Gran thorpe to himself ; " but in my pre sent state, of mind I feel that it is far better to be late than never in the service of the little god. Drive to Darlington Castle, Robert," he said aloud to his coachman. When Lady Darlington, sitting in he...

CHAPTER XXXVI. . THE BLOOD OF THE LISLBS. In the afternoon alter his interview with Violet, the Earl of Grantho"e told her that he was called to Lon don on -important business, astmgat the same time if there was anything for him to do there for her. »» told Mm no, and he left her. ^ " I may not be home to-night, he said, as he drove away. Late that' same afternoon Lady West all sat at her piano, mur^Tin| her grief in music ; for indeed her heart was very heavy. It was only that she had lost Violet, who ZB bo dear to her, but that the man to whom she would have been willing to devote her remaining years seemed too indifferent even to learn why she remained aloof from him.
