CHAPTER XVIII. Done in the Night. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
CHAPTER XVni. Done in the Night. I heard the stranger's voice call: "Lola! Lola! Come here. We want you." I heard her rather impatient reply, and then, a few moments later, she descended the stairs and entered the room where the gang had been dis cussing me. Some quick words in French were exchanged. Then I heard her cry: "I tell you, I refuse!" A man's voice protested. "No. You shall not!" she declared in a loud, defiant voice. "If you do, then the police shall know!" "Oh!" exclaimed' old Gregory, whose voice I recognised. "Then you | object, Mademoiselle, eh?" "Yes. I do object, M'sieur!" she cried. "If any attempt is made against him, then I shall myself in form the police. Remember, M'sieur Vidal is my friend." "Your lover, perhaps," sneered the old man." "No," she cried, in loud, angry pro test. "He is not my lover! Would he love a girl like myself—a girl who has been brought by you, and your friends, to what I am?" "Well, you are a very pretty girl, and sometimes uncommonly us...

The Place of Dragons CHAPTER XVII. Reveals Another Plot. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
The Place of Dragons By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London. & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XVII. Reveals Another Plot. Approaching from Ealing Broad way the liuge electric-light standard, which was also a sign-post, shed a bright glow across the junction of the iwo roads. The thoroughfare on the iviit was Castlebar-road and on the Carlton-road. In the latter read stood half-a-dozen big old trees, re lics of a day when Ealing was a rural village and those trees formed a leafy way. Beyond the signpost, placed at the end of the triangle, lay a small open tpjace of grass, and behind it a pleas ant house with many trees in its spa cious grounds. . At that hour silence reigned m that highly respectable suburban neigh borhood, and as I went forward I no ticed that the figure beneath the trees was that of a man who, emerg ing from the shadow, crossed the road leisurely and passed across the grass into the Castlebar-road, on the r...

A Lucid Reply. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
A Lucid Reply. "I'll not take 'No' for an answer, Miss Fallowby—Priscilla!" declared her lover bravely. "Then, sir," replied the cold and cultured girl, rising to the occasion, "will you, in lieu of that much-hack neyed negative assertion, accept my positive declination to respond con currently to the query propounded?" And he did. A well-to-do Scottish lady one day said to her gardener: "Man Tammas, I wonder you don't get married. You've a nice house, and all you want to complete it is a wife. You know the first gardener that ever lived had a wife." "Quite right, missus, quite right," said Tammas, "but he didna keep his job lang after he got the wife." John (after drinking a glass of stout with evident appreciation): Really, this is splendid stuff! They say that it is both meat and drink. Pat: Sure, it's roight y© are, sor; an 'if ye take plenty av it it'll foind ye lodgings! A man is with no enemy so much at a loss as with a laughing one, since it wrongs his own bravery to meet sm...
War and Women's Dress. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
— — Has th& war affected women's dress ? This is a question that will interest all our women readers, and it is fully an^ swered ici the pages of" Everylady's Journal " for September. This is the semi-annual fashion number, and con tains over fifty new spring and summer pattern designs, exclusive of the four se lected paper patterns which are given free with the magazine. One noticeable effect of the war is that there has been an inoreased demand for up-to-date and reliable paper patterns. " Everylady's Journal "—always a live and up-to-date periodical—offers any of our readers, free of cost, a summer pat tern catalogue of 250 designs. The coupon in September issue should be used to secure the free catalogue. While this care for fashions of the day is a particularly strong feature in " Everylady's Journal," there are other conspicuous items. For instance, an ex pert in poultry tells how the world's records in egg-laying were recently brokenj and gives instructions so that th...
A Slip of the Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
A Slip of the Tongue. Professor Sigmond Freud, an emin ent scholar, has made a study of lin gual blunders, spoken and printed, and has embodied the result in his book "Psycho,pathology." As an ex ample of blundering speech, caused by subconscious cerebration, he gives the following: — "A wealthy but not very generous American host invited his friends to an evening party. Everything went well until about midnight, when there was an intermission for supper. To the disappointment of many of the guests, there was no real supper; in stead, they were regaled with thin sandwiches and lemonade. "As it was during a Presidential campaign, the conversation turned upon the different candidates, and as the discussion grew warmer one of the guests, an ardent Progressive, re marked to the host: — " 'Yon may say what you please about Roosevelt, but there is one thing he can always be relied upon to do—he always gives you a square meal.' "He meant, of course, to' say, a 'square deal.' The assembled ...
LIFE IN DUG-OUTS. Experiences of a Colonel in the Dardanelles. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
LIFE IN DUG-0U1S. Experiences of a Colonel in the Dardanelles. Colonel Lindsay, commanding the 89th Field Ambulance in the Dardan elles, writing to relatives, says— "Life and death are such common place things now one does not give much thought to them. . . . Food is plentiful, but fuel and water are diffi cult to procure. "There are no houses on this part of the peninsula, and life in dug-outs is a funny existence, but one gets used to it. We will have finished here soon, I hope, and be given a chance in France. We are well look ed after, all light-hearted, and full of fight, and the general health of our' troops is excellent." Colonel Lindsay was one of a group of whom two were killed and four wounded while he was carrying out an amputation case under a murder ous shell and rifle-fire.
Turning Things Around. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
Turning Things Around. It was the sma' hours, and as Geor die struggled homewards the foreadtL of the pavement bothered him. He was likewise .perturbed by the sill} way the houses had of turning around and around. Clinging to a lamp-post waiting Jbr his own street to come around, his eye fell on a man from the water board who was engaged in turning on a street water-tap with a large turnkey. Geordie's wrath almost sobered him and, staggering up to the aston ished workman, he gripped him by the collar. "What dae ye mean, ye scoundrel? A fine dance ye hiv led me this nicht, turning the streets roun' an' roun' like that."
Effective. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
Effective. He was a canvasser in the chaap musical instrument line, and was not easily discouraged. As he knocked at this particular door he remember ed that he had called before, and had received a point-blank "No." "Oh," remarked the lady of the house, "it's you again, is it? Come in." Hopefully he accepted the invita tion, &lt;ind followed his guide down a dimly-lighted passage. Suddenly a door opened on his right, and before he was aware he was ushered into a room full of howling bairns, who re doubled their efforts at the sight of a stranger. The canvasser turned to find his retreat cut off. The door was locked behind him. The woman went on with her washing, and an hour or so later she went to the door. "Now," she remarked, sweetly, "if you still feel convinced that I require a little more music in the house you might call again." The man has not been seen in that street since.
INVISIBLE PEOPLE Explorer's Discovery in Congo Forest. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
INVISIBLE PEOPLE Explorer's Discovery in Congo Forest. Reuter's Agency states that Dr. I Cuthbert Christy, the well-known tra- | veller and authority on sleeping sick- , ness, has returned from a three years' | scientific expedition in the Congo, I undertaken for the Belgian Govern ment. He was the only white man on the journey, as his European assist ants fell sick and had to turn back. Dr. Christy spent eighteen months in a part of the Ituri forest hitherto practically unknown. It was only by the help of the Bambuti dwarfs, with whom the traveller lived, that it was possible to penetrate to the haunts of the okapi. Dr. Christy himself, shot one of these animals, and sue- ■ ceeded in collecting iour altogether. He began his expedition at Boma, the mouth of the Congo, at the com mencement of 1912, and went right up to Stanleyville, thence trekking across to the Ituri and into the forest. In the unknown portion of the Ituri he came across some remarkable peo ple, who, by means of dul...
THE SHADOW of DISHONOR [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
THE SHADOW of DISHONOR By Oswald Clifford. Laurence Brail looked up with a swift, abrupt movement of the head, bending forward in a listening atti tude. He gazed down on to the sleep ing garden below from the open win dow where he had been seated in the darkness for the past five minutes, with the light switched off to rest his tired eyes that were aching from close application-that had been given to the intricate designs now resting upon the table before him — designs lor a new submarine, embodying vari ous wonderful improvements invented by his chief, Sir Kato Rampayne, to whom he acted as confidential secre tary, occupying as well an official post at the Admiralty. He thought he had heard a foot step upon the gravel path beneath his window, but told himself it must be fancy, for who could be abroad at this hour, long after midnight? And, fatigued yet not sleepy, he fell to dreaming, his thoughts wandering to the girl he loved, Sir Kato's adopted daughter. How sweet she had looked...
The Umbrella. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
The Umbrella. Little things can be very trying at times, Mr. Fowler thought, when, one wet morning, he could not find his umbrella. Like many married men, he believed in the maxim, "When in trouble blame your wife." "I say, El len," ie shouted, "what on earth has happened to my new umbrella? I brought it home last night, and now it's gone; and of course it's raining furiously!" "Why, it's scarcely rain ing at all!" said his wife. "But last night it was simply pouring when the vicar left, and so I lent him your um brella!" "What an asinine thing to do! I shall never see it again now, so I may as well buy another one to-day." "How can you be so wicked, Aaolphus! As if the vicar would stoop to stealing your umbrella!" "Stoop to stealing it be hanged! I borrowed it from him a couple of months ago!'7
DRILL AIDS SOLDIERS' PLUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
DRILL AIDS SOLDIERS' PLUCK. The world has not waited for theor ists to tell it how emotion follows the bodily state and how the mind's tone and action take measure from the body's attitude and tension; for cen turies observers have known that courage rises with muscular effort and that mental poise grows steady as breathing deepens. The same rea son, then, that led our own drill mas ters, four and five generations ago, to direct particularly that the soldier stand "straight and firm upon his feet" is to-day the reason why the German officers train their soldiers in these leg movements with knees straight or preferably bent back. The ues of the unflexed leg in the goose step is but incidental; the main pur pose of the step is to bring into con sciousness and under immediate con trol the soldiers' physical support. The general who told his wobbling legs that they would shake still hard er if they knew where he was taking them illustrated the lack of just that bodily team-play that the...
A True Philosopher. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
A True Philosopher. Mr. Jephson is a calm man, not eas ily upset. On one occasion, as his motor car had come to a sudden stop, he crawled underneath it to see what was the matter. Somehow or other some petrol ig nited. A fierce burst of flame and smoke came forth, enveloping Mr. Jephson. In the midst of the excite ment he walked to one side with his usual slow and regular step. His face was black, his eyebrows and eyelashes were singed, and what was left of his hair and beard was a sight to behold. Someone brought a mirror, and he had a look at himself. As usual, how ever, he took matters philosophically. "Well," he said slowly and deliber ately, "I was in need of a shave and hair-cut, anyway."
