CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
CHAPTER VIII. i r.e High Koad of Adventure. Here at last it appeared to Gilray was fortune holding out both hands to Lim. He had formed a compact with Enid, showing that- pho was more or less under au obligation to him. It wculd have been a ciifflrult matter t.> state precisely what that obligation was, but ao, tloisbi'. timo - 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 tlu.t might put Van der Knoot on the track of his missing miniatures. Gil 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 strange story ataclied 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 Harley was a thief, w...
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. A Compact. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co: Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. A Compact. Gilray pressed a litle closer to the two women, he was anxious to hear what was passing between them. He .was doing how what he would have scorned to do a year or so ago. His debts and his desperate troubles were sapping the moral libre 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 tlu; 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 a growing disease, this money-making. He told me that when he had made a million . . . more than that was. . . . a profit of...
HOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 o? subscribing for the erection of a 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 a printed circular to over a hundred De puties, inviting them to become hon orary members of the comu»5itei> which was being organised to celebrate the centenary of the illustrious Hege-' sippo. 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 ...
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. It was done rashly and on the spur of the moment. Exactly what he wag going to discover Gilray had not the faintest notion. ' It seemed a ridicul ous thing for a prominent Harley-st. specialist to be setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with no logical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lead him. Madame Desterre had annoyed and piqued him. She had spoken of his 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 was not to be toler ated! Gilray's blood was up now, and he was determined to see the matter through. The more knowledge he gained the better armed would he be for the fray, if fray there was eventu ally to be. He had been warned to make no further advances towards Enid Harley—he had been threaten ed with serious consequences if ho did so. Indeed, it seemed...

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. The enthusiasm of genius leads to strange and curious happenings at times, and the story which is told by Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous artist, about his friend Rossetti in his "Re miniscences" illustrates in an amusing manuer the later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused his interest. At one time Rossetti had all the en thusiasm of the beginner for collect ing china. "He dined one evening with friends who followed his lead in the matter of china, to such good pur pose that the whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for tli3 better display of these was set out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a precious example. When the cover was re moved, Rossetti started, leaned over to examine the dish, took it in both hands, turned it upside down to see the marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and exclaime-.l, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow!' " The famous physi...

VAIN DIPLOMATS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out by H.R.H. the Infanta Eulalia of Spain, aunt of King Alfonso, and she pre sents to us in "The Strand Magazine." whore her memoirs are appearing, a picture of scandals, intrigues, and jeal ousies which is astonishing. Some of her most piquant remarks are reserv ed for diplomats, whose ears must surely be tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modern Courts, the diplomat is the most ab surd. After remarking that they aro "a useless survival of the days when the relations between nations depend ed on the feelings between Sovereigns, and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing, over misunderstandings or exasperat ing offences," the Princess points out that nowadays the Court diplomat has no power, except to deliver the mes sage of his home Government. "He is not entrusted with secrets," she says, "any more than an errand boy. And he is usually stupid. If a family of position has a son who is not iuite bright, t...

Far-Fetched. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
Far-Fetched. Two men were drinking together when the conversation turned on how to feed and train canaries, which hap pened to be their profession. They were telling each other the merits of their birds, which were to go in a show, and both were sure of winning the prize. At last one of them said in a sorrowful tone: ' "Ah, Jim, if I had only got the one I had last week I should not have much trouble in winning, but I had taught him to sing 'Home, Sweet Home' so much to perfection that the tears rolled down his breast till he goc exhausted, fell off his perch, and was drowned in his own tears." "Oh," said Jim, "that's nothing. One night my bird was singing 'The Village Blacksmith' so true that the sparks flew out of his eyes, set Are to the cage and before we had time to put the flames out the poor' little wretch was roasted to death." A crust and a kind word are better than a feast an indigestion. Neither speak well nor ill of your self. If well, men will not believe you; if ill, t...
