CHAPTER XIV. A Missing Link. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 5 September 1914
CHAPTER XIV. A Missing Link. There was to be 110 interruption ol the festivities, that, the Duke had in sisted upon. But all the pleasure and healthy excitement had vanished. Al ready more than one guest had sud denly developed a thoughtfulness for his chauffeur, whose very existence he had previously forgotten. It was all very well for the bands to play, for the younger people to fling themselves into the pleasure of the dance, but the chill breatli of suspicion lay over all, like an unexpected frost in a garden of flowers. The police were expected now at any moment. Even in so brilliant a house as Glenday Castle it was im possible to feel gay and light-hearted with the advent of a detective from Scotland Yard. Somehow the thought of their coming disturbed the Princess much more than the loss of the dia monds. Meanwhile she was consoling her self with a cigarette before the cheery flickering of a wood fire in her bed room. She lay back, with one hand thrown behind her dark head, li...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. - Ltd., Loudon and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIII. "Stop Thief!" For a moment Princess Helena made no reply. It struck Gilray tliat she looked a little pale and distrait, mucli as it she had been suddenly aroused frpm sleep. The pupils of her eyes were dilated, and Gilray suspect ed drugs. As a fashionable doctor, lie knew the symptoms. Certainly the Princess liad disap peared into the fortune-teller's tent a ./Off. minutes before in full possession of all her faculties, and wearing all those magnificent jewels. And liere she was now with not a single stone . in her hair or on her corsage. It was no time to stand 011 ceremony. Gil ray laid his hand on the Princess's shoulder and shook lvev sharply. "Tell what has happened," he de manded. "It may be nothing but a joke, but it is possible to carry such jokes too far. Where are your dia monds?" The Princess lifted her hands to h...
HOW WIRELESS RECOVERED £20 A Post-Office Clerk's Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 5 September 1914
HOW WIRELESS RECOVERED £20 A Post-Office Clerk's Experience. : A few minutes before eight on a re cent Saturday night a stranger called at Londonderry Post Office and asked for gold for four .Go Bank of Ireland notes. He explained that ho was just leaving for Canada, a tender at. the quay, close to the post-office, being timed to start at eight for the liner, which was lying at the mouth-of the Lough Foyle. The post-ofllce clerk courteously took the notes, and handed in exchange four little piles of gold which were in front of him. Without counting the money the stranger emp tied it into the pouch of his emigrant's belt, which he thereupon strapped around his waist and departed. An hour later, when he came to bal ance up for the night, the post-office clerk discovered his cash to be £20 short. No amount of checking made any difference^ "the figures' would not ' ••••' come right. Later on in the night lie sought the help of a senior official. Together they worked at the problem until...
CHAPTER XV. Harley Asks a Favor [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 5 September 1914
CHAPTER XV. Harley Asks a Favor Following the disappearance of Van tier Knoot's miniatures, the loss of Princess Helena's diamonds created something like a sensation of dismay. It had, of course, been impossible to keep the matter private, there are far too many society people dabbling in journalism to make such a thing practicable. The first edition of the evening papers had the news display ed with a score or so of "scare lieadB." There was not one of the journals but had Its speoial account by "one who was present." A great many of them had also reached the theory stage. According to one writer this was the work of a daring and audacious gang of international thieves. The dia monds had vanished in the capacious maw that had swallowed the minia tures. The police "already" had a ! clue."- According to another author ity this latest outrage was a political move on the part of certain foreign revolutionists to obtain' possession of what they rightly or wrongly regarded as crown jewel...
