\ - ■ . - ^ > I 11 80ABSDALE BOROUGH'S POSITION. At the meeting of the Scarsdale Bor ough Ooancil oa Monday a question arose as to the validity of electing a Mayor in view of the early absorption of the boroagh by the Shire of Grenville. It was considered that the proper coarse to pursue was to elect a chairman. Iu re ply to questions asked by Or Statton, it was elicited that when the representatives of the amalgamated boroughs sat for the first time it would be necessary to ap point a president of the shire, although councillors expressed their opinion that it would be simply a matter oE form to re-elect the newly-appointed president of Grenville Shire (Cr Wallis) to the posi tion. It was also elicited that the repre sentatives of the two boroughs would have equal voting power on all questions with the other councillors of the Shire. After further discussion it was decided, on the motion of Crs Aisbett and Wil kinson, that Cr A. A. Edgar be appoin ted chairman. The retiring Mayo...

His Lordship Didn't Count. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
His Lordship Didn't Count. It is not generally known that Lord Alverstone has a good singing voice, and at one time he used to sing in the choir of a fashionable church in the West of London. One Sunday an American lady visi tor to the church drew one of the vergers aside and asked which of the choir was Lord Alverstone, as she was very anxious to see such a dis tinguished man. "Well, mum," replied the verger, "that's the vicar, them's the curates, and I'm the verger, hut as for the choir—as long as they behaves themselves decent, we don't inquire into their antecedents."

CHAPTER XVI. "Where the Two C's Meet." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
flH A PTTCR "5TVT "Where the Two C's Meet." So Lola's portrait was in. the hands of the French police. The fact jarred | upon me. But I was careful not to betray any of the agitation I felt, and after gaz ing upon it in silence I remarked in a light tone to Jonet: "That is the only portrait you've got, eh? Rather good-looking, isn't she?" "Good-looking! Ah, mon cher Vi dal, extremely beautiful, I call her," declared the Inspector, taking the pic ture and gazing upon it. "Really," he added, "it hardly seems possible that such a pretty girl should be such a hardened and expert thief as she is reported to be." "I thought Jeanjean was the thief," I said, with a pretence of surprise. Jonet lit a fresh cigarette, after offering me one. Then he said: "It is on record here," and he tap ped the portfolio that lay under his hand, "that in at least half-a-dozen cases the methods have been the same. The Nightingale—as the girl, whose real name is Lola Sorel, but who has a dozen aliases—is calle...

By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XV. Confirms Certain Suspicions. For yet another hour we sat to gether, but Lola would reveal noth ing further. She only repeated that serious warning, urging . me to abandon this investigation of the strange affair at Cromer. She refused to tell me the name under which old Gregory was known in Hatton Garden, and she likewise firmly declined to give me any infor mation concerning the curious code which had been found in Gregory's room. Indeed, slie affected ignorance of it, as well as of the mysterious spot in Ealing "where the two C's meet." ■ "My uncle is in Antwerp, she told me in reply to a question. "I join him to-morrow, and then we go travel ling—where, 1 have no idea. But you know how erratic and sudden our movements necessarily are.

SMUGGLERS' DEVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
SMUGGLERS' DEVICES. Why women with, good heads of hair are cherished as smugglers' con federates leaked out at Toulon some time ago, when a woman, on being arrested, was found to have a large pot of opium hidden in her long golden tresses. Further searching also revealed smaller quantities of the drug in each of the high heels of her shoes. America was once defrauded of £10,000 by mineral water being smuggled as ice. For a long time the Customs au thorities at New York had handled large consignments of ice, the strange thing being that the freight made the price of the imported ice greater than the local ice. After a long time a sample was melted, which proved itself not sim ply plain water, but mineral water, which, if entering the country in its true form, would have been subject ed to heavy duty. Russia was once overrun with counterfeit notes. The police felt certain that the notes were Imported, which proved to be the case. One day an; accident solved the mystery. Some packages ...
GAS POISON FOR SOLDIERS. Who Invented It. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
GAS POISON FOR SOLDIERS. Who Invented It. Whether we are justified in copy ing the German example in regard to the use of asphyxiating gases is a matter on which the British army will soon give an answer to the Huns in the field. It is interesting to note that there is no difficulty about producing chlorine gas—which is that mainly employed by the Germans—and dis charging it at the enemy's trenches when the wind is favorable. Any of our manufacturing chemists could pro duce enough chlorine in a day or two to suffocate the whole German army from the Yser to the Vistula, for chlorine is familiar to English chem ical manufacturers, who, until a few years ago, were the onlj makers of this chemical. Chlorine is a greenish-yellow gas with a peculiarly unpleasant and suf focating smell, and with those terrible effects on the lungs, throat and mem branes of its victims which have been described by Dr. Haldane and Sir John French. The cost of suffocating our troops by the Germans is not heav...
NEW ARMY IN THE FIELD. A FINE BODY OF MEN. Anxious to Get at the Germans. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
NEW ARMY IN THE FIELD. A FINE BODY OF MEN. Anxious to Get at the Germans. From G. Valentine Williams, General Headquarters, British Expeditionary Force, July 12. Sir John French has answered Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria's eager question: "Where is England's New Army?" In his latest despatch the British Commander-in-Chief makes the public announcement that some divisions of the New Army are at the front. I am therefore at liberty to tell you now something of the ap pearance and experiences of the new levies—England's citizen army—and of the impression they have produced during the two months they have been out here, on the seasoned veterans of our Army in the field. I remember very well my first meet ing with the first battalions of the New Army to take the field, realising, as I caught sight of the number of ..he battalion painted on their trans port carts, that here we had men of the New Army. It .was a soaking ■wet day and the roads 'were sloughs of mud. I came upon this battalion ...

| SEEN FROM A ZEPPELIN. "ATTACK ON A BRITISH DOCKYARD." GERMAN NARRATIVE. A German writer in the "Cologne Gazette" gives an interesting, if pos sibly a somewhat imaginative, descrip tion of a raic by a Zeppelin upon the British coast He says: It is barely growing dusk when Lieut«.-uant-Commander X., in command of L , receives an or der through the telephone to cruise on the morr':>w in a north-westerly di rection. gives the necessary or ders and next morning early enters the airship shed. The crew of two deck officers and twelve non-commis sioned officers is already at work. > One of tiie officers satisfies him self that the supply of petrol is com plete, while the other superintends the cairiage of bombs and incendiary missiles into the gondolas. The skip per after a brief inspection expresses his satisfaction. He is very particu lar to know that light refreshments— ! warm tea in thermos flasks and bread and butter—have been shipped. There is silence in the great hall, of whi...

Couldn't Be Done. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
Couldn't Be Done. Men are curious creatures. They will notice the most insignificant de tail or they will fail to observe what seems patent to everybody. Neither attitude, however, can be depended upo-n, and in any and all circumstan ces they will be unable to give a why or wherefore for their conduct. It was only the other day that a certa.n man observed to his wife: — "I do wish, my dear, that you'd get a veil like one Mrs. Blank wears. It is so pretty. I saw her to-day. and I noticed her veil at once; it was so different, somehow, from what most women wear. I can't describe it, you know, but it seems to me it was black. I know it wasn't one of your flimsy, floppy sort of veils, but quite thick, and it was draped so grace fully upon her bonnet. I'm sure it would be becoming to you." "Very likely," returned the wife, as soon as she had recovered herself. "But the only way you could make it possible for me to wear such a veil would be for yon to die. Mrs. Blank lost her husband only...

WHEN THE WORM TURNED [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
i WHEN THE WORM TURNED By Felix Claire. Sebastian Knojent, secretary of the Beatall Motor Accessories Com pany, leaned back in his office arm chair and yawned. "A beautiful day," he mused. "Think I'll chuck it and have a few hours on the river. Let me see, I can just catch the three-ten to Kew. Good!" The great man slowly shifted his aldermanic body until he could reach a bell-push, and a moment later the office-boy, Johnnie Carter, appeared in answer to the summons. "Tell Mr. Finch I want him." "Yes, sir." The door opened again, and Rich ard Pinch entered. Pinch was tall and slim, and some what ungainly in his walk, but he was an excellent worker. For fifteen years out of his thirty he had spent all his working houis on a stool in the Beatall Company's office, and. as senior clerk he had every detail of tne work-at his finger-tips, and knew far more of the routine work than anyone else. The contrast between the two men Was very noticeable as they stood there facing each other. Mr. ...
