It was then I began to bo uneasy, and commenced to make Inquiries. X saw Mary, the house maid. From wha...

.'CHAPTER.' IV.' : Jolm Gale's Story is Interrupted. I leave it lo tlio imagination of my es teemed correspondent"to complete the pic ' ture or desolation that prevailed at Hani-.' merly Hall after the burial of "Little Reginald," and to; appreciate the bcreave : ment of the child's mother. Everywhere, you walked through;the grounds of-the old place, you /ft'ould be certain to come on a policeman, .-who was either watching something, following something, or plan ning something.. Speaking for myself, I must admit: that I felt the position acute ly. ■■■■.■'Wherever I appeared, X observed peo ple nodding tiieir heads, and regarding nio with what I feared was a suspicious look. I subsequently ascertained that they were only gazing at a man so important as to have been selected as the foreman of the ■■JU'ry." It was perhaps the same with every one. When Mary and X went out in the evenings for our accustomed strolls, we were certain to find an active member of the police force glaring at ...

NOTES OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
NOTES OF THE WEEK. It would appear that the New South Wales Ministry are adopting an attitude of graceful withdrawal, with a desire to "save their faces" in tho matter of the occupancy by tho Govornor General ol' Government House in Sydney. At first it. was announced that tho Federal leaso of tho residence expired by efflux ion of timo at the end of this month, and the genorul impression was that not all tho King's horses and all the King's men could in duce Mr. McGowen and his colleag uos to grant an extension of that lease, and its renowal for a set term was too absurd to think of. This impression was confirmed by the pronouncement " with regret " that tho Governor General would bo unable to again reside in Sydney. But since then a change has come o'er the scene, and Lord Denman and his retinue have arrived in Sydney with the intention of mak ing a lengthened stay. What is more to the point, his Excellency's headquarters are at thte Govern ment House, and the lease of that establi...
