CHAPTER XLIV. THE PRISONER. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 24 October 1879
CHAPTER XLIY. THB feBUOHBB. The sudden noise overoead and tbe hurried trampling of the men on deck were startling enough ; but surely there was nothing to alarm ha* in thn calm and eerioni face of thia man who stcoa oetore ner. jie uiu not advance 10 ber. He regarded her with a sad tenderness, as if he were looking at one far away. When the beloved dead come back to us in the wonder-balls of sleep, there is no wild joy of meeting: there is something strange. And when they disappear again, the is no surprise : only the dull aching returns to the heart. « Gertrude,' said he, ' you are as sab here as ever you were in your mother's arms. No one will harm you.' ' What is it? What do you mean ?' said she, quickly. She was somewhat bewildered. She had not expected to meet him thus suddenly face to face. And then she became aware that the companionway by which she had descended into the saloon bad grown dark: that was tbe meaning of the harsh noise. 'I want to go ashora, Keith,' said she hu...

In Auburn, Stockport and Saddleworth Shows uavc oeeu an insutuiion lor a numoer 01 jears past and at last eur little sleepy hollow woke np the necessity of emulating these places. When the idea was first mooted many of tbe inhabitants etoad aghast at the darin*ncss of the proposal as it wa9 the prevalent ides that we had very little to .exhibit in t!ie shape of flowers or dairy produce. But that fear was speedily dispelled when the entries began to roll in in overwhelming numbers and of remarkably, superior quality. Indeed the difficulty .was not to get articles to ehow, but to* find room to ehow them. Vatil lately our lustitute Hall has always been considered if anything too large a room for the place, but yesterday it was crowded to excess, even to suffocation. People were jammed together in tightly wedged groups at times unable to m...

He stepped into the four-wheeled cab that Colin Laing char tered just as if four-wheeled cabs were as common as sea gulls on the shores ot Lochna neal. And though his eyes wera bewildered and his ears dinned with the wonderful sights and sounds of this great roaring city — that eeemed to have the population of all the world pouring throngh its streets — he would say nothing at all. At last the cib stopped ; the two men were opposite the Piccadilly Theatre. Then Ha-nieh got out and left his cousin with the cab. He ascended the wide steps ; he entered tbe great vestibule ; and he had a letter in his hand. The old man had trembled bo much since he was a school- boy.

The Midland Road Board ajtd the Burba Co^pouatios. — Some months since the Barra Corporation annlied for nermission to make ar-- proaclies trom streets to main roads m the. town, and asked that the Board would grant one moiety of the cost. The Board at once replied that they would pay ialf the cost under the usual oonJiilonB. 'ilixa naaal-conii i Finns' are that th9 work of making the approaches shall be doa's to i\3 satis faction of the Surreyor so that no extravagant price can be charged for inferior work. Upon, receipt of the engagement mentioned the Corporation, proceeded to the construction of a number of approacnes which were required by the public but which they had not the funds to make without this help, they having already spent the whole of the rates for the current year. The account for the half-cost was then sent in to the Board, the sum being nearly £50 on account of the very large number of streets that cross main roads within 'the town.- Of course it was expe...
