CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
CHAPTER VIII. The High' Road of Adventure. Hero at last it appeared to Gilray \vas"iorciir.c".or.»...0 —tp.-. liim. He had formed a compact with Enid, showing that she was more or less under an obligation to him. It wculd have been a difficult matter t.? state precisely what that obligation was, but no doubt time would help him to give it some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lest he should speak, lest he should say something th? t. might put Van der Knoot on the track of his missing miniatures. Gii ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel Har ley. Whether they had been stolen or not it did not in the least matter —perhaps there was some Btrange story atached to their appearance in the queer dock-house, some plausible explanation. Even the blackest evi dence sometimes becomes common place when the witnesses for the de fence enter the witness-box. What did it matter? Suppose Dan iel I-Iarley was a thief, what then? At any r...

He war. &lt; doing now what he would have scoriied 10 do a year or so ago. , His uebtr, and his desperate troudies v. ere sapping the moral fibre of the man. He was so nervously eager to get to the bottom of this mystery that his gen tlemanly instincts were crushed out. Apparently he stood raptly contem plating one of the pictures on the wall. Ever and again words came to him, but he could make very little of them! Then he started. Ninon Desterre was talking. Just for a moment she seemed to forget herself for her voice was raised eager ly "Your esteemed father will never have enough," she explained. "It isi a growing disease, this money-malting.

BOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
HOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. An amusing practical joke has just been played upon French members of Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of an opportunity to bring his name be fore the notice of his constituents and no method is simpler than that ol subscribing for the erection of n sta tue to some dead and gone French ce lebrity who is in danger of being for gotten. Knowing this, says the "Times " cor respondent, a clever newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegesippe Simon. Then he sent i printed circular to over a hundred De puties., in^itinfj them to become hon orary members-oi'-tti-e comtrutte-j which was being organised to celebrate the centenary of the illustrious Hege slppo. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant, he added a quotation from his works, "When the sun arises, the darkness vanishes away." The Deputies, who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the great man or to l...

It seemed a ridicul- ' ous tiling for a prominent I-Iarlev-st specialist .to be setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with no ogical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lend him. Madam.> ?,?? ha(^ annoyed and piqued him. wift ,i - ®po,c&lt;;" of. h«s private affairs with thinly-veiled insolence, and she Had, moreover, threatened him. Who was this giddy, glittering society but terfly who ventured to pit her wits against his? He would show her that this sort of thing wafi not to be toler ated! Gilray's blood was up now, and he was determined to see the matter through. The more knowledge iie gained the better armed would he bo for the fray, if fray there was eventu ally to be. He had been warned to " . c,° "° further advances towards I Enid Harley—he had been threaten- | ea with serious consequences if ho m i...
