CHAPTER XXXVIII. THE END OF INFAMY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 July 1914
CHAPTER XXXVIII. THE END OF INFAMY. From profligacy and unbridled li cence in his youth, the Marquis of Coldenham had come to actual crime in his approach to old age. The sins of his youth had been scarcely more than the virtues of his class. Even the pursuit of an innocent and helpless girl to the very verge of death' Wd starvation would not have injured him' in reputation among his companions ; and a successful pursuit of her to her ruin would have re dounded to Wis credit. He had not had any really easy moments from the time he had re ceived from Lady Darlington the wages of his crime. He called ii that in his own mind. He told himself that he had lied for her and had broken an innocent young girl's heart for her, and that he was get ting no more than he had earned when he took from her the, twenty thousand pounds which he was sup posed to have paid'sto Violet. Be sides he considered Guy 'worth fully that much to him: The money carried him over his trying ordeals at the time, hut...

But there was. no luck about it on. Saturday with Rich mond and Essendon. j Both side had the same advantage J of the wind which blew fairly I strong up till half-time, but afterl that the weather became fairly calm. But Richmond seemed to play quite aB well against the wind as with it. . Certainly Essendon had not tht-ir strongest team in the absence of Baring and Ogden. but their places were filled by worthy substitutes. The runaway victory, nearly 2 to 1 in points. 69 to 37. was a splendid triumph for the Yellow and Black battlers against such a famous com bination as Essendon has so long proved to be There were two changes in Rich mond- team from the preyious Saturday, Farrell and Ohlsen taking J he -places of Arbrew- and Crohk.

FOSSIL MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 July 1914
FOSSIL MAN. i . It "is a striking fact that very fewj fossil remains of most ancient typesj of man have been found as yet, soj' that our knowledge of the origin ofl our prehistoric ancestors is most im-i perfect. A remarkable find was the', fossil man of La Chapellc aur-1 Saints in France, which showed a skull in a remarkable state of pre servation. The find attracted much attention at the time., but it remain-; ed to be seen what conclusions could be drawn from it. Scientists have been trying to reconstruct our an cient ancestors from this model, but there are many doubts still pre vailing. New light is thrown on the subject by the recent work of Profs.. Boule and Anthony of^Paiis. which brought out some \ striking facts. As the skull was in a very good state of preservation, they were able to obtain a plaster cast of the in side of the skull almost as tharp and complete as those made from modern skulls. Thus a very good idea could be gained of the shape of the brain, which could n...

SENSATIONS OF FLYING. . -4--1 Describing her experiences in an aeroplane, a lady writes in the I "Autocar" | Once seated, I tucked iny dress well under me, and felt prepared for any thing. "'Shall I hold on by these?" I asked. "Pas necessaire," replied the pilot. All the same, I did hold on. The engine was accelerated, and of! 'we glided. I did not know when we left the ground, all was so smooth. Very soon I loosed my hold of the. wooden uprights, and just placed my hands under the seat. It was too delightful ! Better even than I expected. Round again we swept, rising and dipping, but no sensation of sea-sickness. I only longed to pilot the machine myself, and watched every movement. There was no more wind than one feels in driving a car, the. propeller Being behind, as is also the engine ; the noise was not deafening,, as the air seemed to carry it off. We came down quite gently, the en gine slowed a little, then on again to roll a few paces to the starting place. Climbing down was...
