CHAPTER IX (Continued). In silence Phyllis left the room, without another glance at the angry woman, who laughed sneeringly, then collapsed into a chair as Hector closed the door upon her. "What does it all mean?" asked Phyllis, as Hector opened the hall door. "How does she know about the-the murder?" '"Guesswork," answered Hector in a low voice; "she was in the conser vatory at Dartmoor House; she saw us together, and overheard me quar relling with Jenkins. She means mischief and threatened before to go to the police, but I will try to bring her to her senses. I am deeply sorry, Phyllis." "She is vindictive; she will go to the police and tell them-oh, I am -ure she will!" exclaimed Phyllis in sudden alarm.

THE WINNING SMILE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
THE WINNING SMILE. A winning smile we ought to wear, regardless of expenses, e'en though the burden of despair we labor under dense is. A kindly word for every skate, a smile for every neighbor such things will make us truly great and sanctify our labor. But now and then it's hard to spring the sunny smiles and glances! It's difficult to beam and sing in awkward circumstances! Last night I had a corking book, a book to make one chortle, in which a sleuth pursues a crook clear to the prison's portal. And when the even ing meal was done, I said, my sweet smil3 keeping, "Now I can read and have some fun, until it's time for sleeping." I placed my chair before the fire, the tempest little heeding; and at the tomcat threw my lyre, and settled down to reading. And I was deep in JChapter One, whereii the vile destroy= or, the lurid villain with his gun, shoots down .the,- illage lawyers and then the brazen door-bell rang; my wife obeyed the summons, and in there stepped a dreary gang of bo...

DANISH CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
DANISH CULTURE. "Denmark, although one of the sniallest countries in Europe, lihas dur ing the last half-century contributed an imposing array of illustrious names to the records of original work in science, philosophy, literature and sit. The recital of a few names only is quite sufficient to prove this state ment," writes WV.. J. Harvey and Christian Reppien in..the "Miillgate Monthly." "Some of Thorwaidsen's statues. may be-regarded as amon-? the most exquisite and beautiful pieces of sculpture wrought in mod ern times.

The Very Place. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
The Very Place. "Is the house very quiet?" he ask ed, as he inspected the room that had been advertised to let. "No," said the landlady,: wearily, "1 can't truthfully say that it is. The four babies don't 'iiiake much noise, for they never cry' at once, and the three pianos one gets used to, and the parrot is quiet sometimes; but the man with the clarionet and the boy that's learning the flute do make it noisier than. I wish it was." "That's all right," said the.-man cheerflilly. "Live and let live is ramy motto! I'll take the room.and moive in to-morrow,. and the little thingz you mention will never disturb me. Good morning." And it .was not till he was moved in and was settled that they learned his occupation. He played a trombone in an orchestra.

An Expensive Jobl A man who had: been three times married, and as often left. a widower, was reported... to be thinking of a fourth time entering into the blessed and comfortable estate of holy matri mony. A friend ventured to ask whether there was any truth in the rumor, and received this sagacious reply: * "Na, na; what wi' mairryin' them, and what wi' buryin' them, it's. ower expensive.. Eva: Yes, I a ma great believer in onions as beautifiers. Why, wvhen a girl diets on onions she is pretty enough to kiss; Jack: But who wants to kiss a girl who diets on onions? The sad defect about the. progress of the human race is that while we are occupied in learning one thing we are almost always engaged in for getting another.

He's whistling like a lark!" "I'm afraid I'm to biame, 'mum. I got the packages mixed th...

A FAMOUS JEWELLER'S ROMANCE. Adventures in Search of Precious Stones. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
A FAMOUS JEWELLER'S ROMANCE. Adventures in Search of Precious Stones. Few jewellers in London were bet ter known a year or two ago than Mr. Edwin W. Streeter, of Bond-street, whose shop was one of the centres of fashion and aristocracy in this par ticular connection. And when Mr. Streeter was retiring from business the writer had the pleasure and privi lege of a conversation with him on some of the romances of his life. The famous jeweller had many curi ous .nd thrilling stories to recount as he looked back over the years, and it is not easy to make a selection from them and assert that those chosen are the best ones available. But some of these may not be unacceptable to the readers of this paper, and may prove new and interesting, at any rate to them. "One of my ancestors," said the jeweller, "was Robert Streeter, who was jeweller to Queen Anne. I my self in my early career was in partner ship with one Harry Emmanuel, and I our place of business was at that time I in Fevis Marks, ...

First Richmond School Sold Last Week at Auction-Derrick's Old Establishment Now a Dwelling Place. Memories of the years ago must have recurred to some old Richmond residents when they read an auction eer's notice last week announcing the sale of property at the corner of Brighton-street and James-street. The old-fashioned brick house, built right out to the footway, which stands on that corner, is the same building, somewhat transformed, that served as the first National school in Richmond. It was known as Derrick's School, and most South Richmond boys-of fifty years ago attended there. Subsequent ly it became a Board school, and later, when the present State education sys tem was established, the Brighton street State School was built, and Der rick's old school passed' out. The property changed hands at the sale by i 3Ir. R. W. E. Hooke, auctioneer, last week, for £420.
HELENE. A Trench Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
HELENE. A Trench Tale. Though I have been in action often, in attacks and counter-attacks, bomb ing raids and bayonet charges, the clearest and saddest of all my war memories is of none of these, but of a girl-one of the bravest souls I ever knew-poor, blessed Helene De lacourt. Before trench systems were so complicated as they are now we were in reserve in a little village just be hind the firing-line. In the house in which I and others were billeted there lived Helene and her mother. It *as a pretty, creeper clad cottage with a trim garden in which a profusion dcif flowers bloomed. At night, the windows closely shut tered so that from outside no light could be seen. we would dance to the u music of an old polyphone, or stand in the garden and watch the flare lights bursting above the trenches and listen to the popping of rifles. Helene was liberally endowed with the eternal "mother" spirit, and she cared tenderly for the boys when they came out of the trenches to rest, washing the...
TOO OFFICIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
S TOO OFF!CIOUS. I was standing just outside a rail way station in Glasgow (writes an American), when a woman walked up to a man who was standing near me, and without a word pulled a white feather through his buttonhole. He smiled when he saw what she had done, and said "Thank you, madam!" very politely. She. grew crimson and started to tel!l him what she thought of him. He listened until she had finished, and then he asked, "Have you another of these feathers?" "Yes, I have, you coward!" she snapped!, and she put another feather on him. As she did so he pulled a Victoria Cross from his pocket and pinned it right under the feathers. That woman gasped and stuttered and stammered, trying to make an apology, and she reached out to take the_ feathers back, but he stopped her. "No, madam," he said, "I'll keep these as souvenirs, if you don't mind; but I'd like to say a few words to you about what you are doing. The fact that I'm in civilian clothes does not necessarily mean that I am a c...
