CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
CHAPTER VII. Mr. Stanwell having concluded his business with Miss Devereux, had left the room, and was passing along the broad corridor which led to the front entrance, when he suddenly came face to face with Joyce Redgrave. "Who are you, sir?" demanded the latter angrily, placing himself in front of the detective.' "And what is your business here?" "I am a friend of Miss Devereux, and came here at her request,' replied the other with an urbanity of manner which contrasted strangely with Red grave's .haughtiness. "That is only a partial answer to my question. I asked who you were. Perhaps you will be good enough to oblige me with your card. Here is mine," and Redgrave, who had been kept in ignorance of Stanwell's visit, field out the orthodox piece of paste board. The detective took it, glanced at the name, then bowed stiffly. "I suppose, as you have done me the favor of a self-constituted intro duction," he said, feeling in his poc ket for his card case, "it devolves upon me to ret...
THE CROXFORD MILLIONS. A Strong and Absorbingly Interesting Story, CHAPTER IV.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
H Strong and Absorbingly Interesting Story* E. CAWERON- MORRISON. AUTHOR OF "The Strange Case of Mr. Fen wick," " The Man with the Withered Face," " An. Image in Wax." etc. CHAPTER IV.-Continued. ' "If your uncle contemplated clear ing out secretly and of his own free will, liow can we reconcile this aspect I of the case with the partly-written note he left behind him? Also, why should It become necessary for him to forcibly open at least two drawers in this escritoire, from one of which I have not the slightest doubt the bun dle of notes was extracted? Further, if I understand you aright, Mr. Crox ford is a man of immense wealth, practically a millionaire, therefore, it would stand to reason, if he really had arranged to make a voluntary flight, that he would have provided himself with something beyond the paltry sum represented by these notes. Does this view of the case not strike you as the correct one?" And as Mr Willington stopped, he pulled open the two draw ers which earlier ...

The Problem of the Hour. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
The Problem of the Hour. When spoken to about the doming referenda the majority of people betray a lamentable degree of ignorance regarding the subject, and when an effort is made to explain the effect the proposed change in the constitution, if carried, will have upon our State-, they manifest an amount of in difference that is absolutely criminal. If these, people would only take the trouble to read even a tithe of what appears in the public prints concerning so vital a subject they would speedily realise that if they ^ neglect to record their votes on April 26th against the proposed alteration they will have endangered a birthright that they possibly may be powerless to regain. Grant what is asked by the Federal Gov ernment and we will soon realise that we might just as well hand over the balance of our rights and submit to being ruled by a heterogenous body with conflicting interests and little sym pathy with our special industries and the development- of our peculiar resourcesi...

Wattamandara Peak Hill. ' (Contributed). " Leaving Wattamandara about noon, we started on our overland journey to -Peak Hill, The weather was all that could be desired, a gentle breeze tem 'pering Ihe summer heat. . The recent rains had left the roads in good order, and we had no dost on the first stage of our trip. The grasshoppers were numerous, but not travelling on account . of the quantity of green feed in the stuble paddocks. The first open air meal was partaken of near Mr. Thomp son's farm, Back Creek, and was most pleasant. After packing our tucker box, we were soon on the move again. Passed Mr. Bush's, school about 4.30 p-m, arriving at the Grenfell road half an hour later. JNight coming on we put up at Leahy's (late ChiverB') Wag gon and Horses Hotel, and succeeded in getting a secure and well-grissed paddock, for the horses, per favor of Messrs Delaney Bros. The country , around here looks well, and prospects appear good. Mr. Leahy's hospitality is well up to the standard...
