A BROTHER'S LOVE By GRAHAM BROWN, Author of "Tho Soul of Lucllle," "The Leaguo of tho Sacred Scarab," etc. Published by Arrangement with Cassell and Co, All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIX. The Confession. The words wore quietly uttered, yet if a bombshell had fallen Into the room the effect could not have been more electrical on Eric Galbralth, His face became the color of paper, and the cigarette he had been lighting fell from his nerveless fingers, "Oh, heavens!" he groaned, "what do you know about Nellio Charlton? You have told Elsie--oh, you-" "Be quiet, Erie, Elsie will never know from lme." "But what do you know? Some friend-" "Do not try to hide it. I know everything, Eric," and in a quiet voice Angus told his brother of the mysteri. ous letter. "Show me the letter, old man," said Erlc, brightening, "perhaps it's a hoax." But he trembled in spite of his attempts to pass it ont lightly. "The letter," said Angus, "Is burn ed," "Burned!" and the boy's eyes flash ed fire. "Is this ...

NORTHCOTE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
NORTHCOTE THEATRE., Dr. Rowe and Company proved an enormous attraction for the earlier part of the week. Over4000 people attended, and were entertained with a bright, smart show, some of the items being wonderful and aniusing. "The Shepherd of the Southern Cross," an Australian film play, is at present the main feature. It is a picture of great merit and speaks well for the success of local enterprise. The scenes are pervaded by a thorough Australian atmosphere-one almost smells the wattle-the acting is superb, and the photography is just as good as that of the best European or American pictures. It is a triumph for Australian producers and actors. On Monday next, July 27th, the mas terful police drama, "The Third De gree," will be screened for three nights. This remarkable picture is founded on Charles Klein's famous drama, and shows the inside workings of a great police department, This is of specialin terest owing to the recent discussion on the Australian Police Department copy ...
FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
FOOTBALL. ---------- * _ Northcote put up a very disappointing display-in the second half especially against Brighton at Croxton on Satur day last. On their form in recent matches supporters of the home team were in hopes of them proving more than a match for the seasiders. North cote had considerably the best of the game up to the half-time interval, at which stage they led by 13 points. Brighton, however, outclassed the locals in the third quarter, during which the latter seemed disorganised. Play was of an even character in the con cluding quarter, Brighton eventually winning by 20, Final result-Brighton, 8.17; Northcote, 6.9. Cole, as usual, was in fine form for Northcote, other prominent players being H. Thomas, Mills, Teesdale, Bassett, Goodall, and Willis. Northcote play their last match at Croxton to-day, when they will meet Footscray. Mr. Fred Swale has resigned his posi tion as trustee of the Croxton reserve. Northcote played all over their oppon ents last Saturday for hal...

A TOUGH SITUATION. A Gambler's Story. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
A TOUGH SITUATION, A Gambler's Story. "The toughest situation I was ever in," said a young man who lives by his wits, "was when I went into a Sixth-avenue gambling-den in New York, and began to play roulette on a bluff. It was the most desperate mo ment of my life. I hadn't a cent ln my pocket, and I had to have one hun dred dollars at once, or else-well, I had to have that hundred. I turned into the Sixth-avenue place, and went up the three narrow flights of 4tairs to the room where the tables \yere. There were a few hard-looking men playing at the wheel, one or two were sitting in at the faro game, and a pok er party was at work In one cornrer. "As I glanced round, I noticed, sit ting all alone in a chair tipped against the wall, an old white-haired man with kind blue eyes. He looked at me quizzically through the smoke of his cigar. "I saw that the man keeping the roulotte-wheel was just about flipping the marble. I stepped up qulokly to the table, and as the marble went spin ning...

THE VANISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
THE VANISHED. A thing on which I used to dote Was lovely woman's petticoat. Of all the duds she ever wore (And heaven knows they've been galore), None was so dainty, and so natty, None was so feminine, so pretty, None seemed so modest, and so neat Above a pair of pretty feet, None had the charm o'er which I gloat Like the old-fashioned petticoat. I loved to see her lift her gown When crossing puddles in thle town. I loved to see her petticoat Its lacy, fluttering frills afloat Blow round and round her ankles small, In graceful eddies rise and fall, As if to say, "I am too gay, Too lovely far to hide away," Sometimes 'twas petticoat of silk Or shimmering satin, or that ilk, And as biefore the cosy grate We two were wont to meditate, The flame burned high, with maiden thrift Her pretty evening gown she'd lift And bring to my enchanted view Her petticoat of rosy hue. Or if to work she was inclhined, Her petticoat bespoke her mind. Of gingham, simple, strong, and plain, 'Twould wash and...

The Woman and the Rib, Adam gave his rib To make a woman's shape. (Thus the story's writ, There is no escapel) Many an Arctic whale, Witless of the blame, Also gives his rib For to make the same. I sorrow not for man, He gets hlls rlblet back, But for the poor old whale, Alack, my friends, alack!
WHEN ACCIDENTALLY POISONED. Things To Do. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
WHEN ACCIDENTALLY POISONED. Things To Do. Now for a few special hints on the poisons most commonly taken by ac cidtlent, always remembering that the first thing in all cases is to empty the stomach: Poisoning by mineral acids may be neutrallsed by chalk, magnesia, even the plaster from the wall in watery solution, For any burning or corrosive poison much help may be given after the vomiting by raw egg In milk. White of egg Is particularly help. ful in corrosive sublimate poisoning. Carbolic acid poisoning is unfortun ately common and unfortunately fatal, The anesthetic effect of the poison prevents the action of the usual emetics, A large drink of whisky or alcohol will help to modify the effect or the acid, Renewed efforts should then be made to induce vomiting. Raw egg and milk are helpful, but the proper antidote Is sodium sulphate. Concentrated lye has brought ago. nising death to many children. The antidotes are water containing vine. gar and lemon juice to neutrallse the alkal...
Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. \Vilctoria is lagging behind Westralia and New South Wales in respect to grain carriage in bulk, These two widely-divided States are preparing to erect grain silos and elevators, and no doubt they will induce shipping companies to fit up their holds specil ally for the reception of uubagged wheat. Such ships will shlui the port of Melbourne until it is brought into line. The grain production of Austra lia is still in its infancy. Distance fromn the European market hampers its growth. Bulk handling would cut away part of this handicap. Tlhe Country Party in Victorian Legisla ture has the chance of its lifetime now to press for grain elevators, while the new Premier is gingerly gathering up the lines of his policy and is in a pliable condition and sen. sitive to the promptings of any rea sonable section of his followers.
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
FROM VARIOUS 8OUROES. "A Bloke" has this to say.-"A low brute of a working man," as E. de Vere Smythe would say, had a bit of luck the other day. He was toiling and moiling at excavation work, when he came on a handy little pile of 18 sovereigns planted by someone in the days that never come back. "Some 'as luck and some 'asn't." For in stance, a Wooloongabba (Brisbane) carpenter was demolishing an old wooden house in thlt suburb, when he came upon a find of 27 spade guineas, probably planted there when Mloreton Bay was a convict settle ment. As spade guineas go, they are worth more than the ordinary twenty. one shillings, and the lucky finder got a bit over when he realised on them. Then the "low brute" took a ticket in Tatt.'s, and, his luck still holding, won a £5000 Tatt.'s prize. Then the "low brute" launched out on his own in railway construction work. His luck held good, and he made his pile. He is no longer "a low brute." He has emigrated from the land that made him and runs...
TRIVIAL CAUSE OF A DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
TRIVIAL CAU8E OF A DUEL, One morning a Prussian officer came to an inn and ordered a pickled herring, which was soon brought to him in a caper sauce. Not far from him sat an Australian officer who spoke to the Prussian thus: "That is something good, isn't it; I have seen it grow myself in Italy." "You appear to be in a merry hu mor," replied tile Prussian, "I must request you, however, not to talk such nonsense08080," "There is no nonsense about it; I am perfeootly serious," was the reply. After arguing together in this strain for about ten minutes, the Prussian said angrily, "I am tired of being hum. bugged with such nonsense," and growing very excited, he shouted, "Come to-morrow morning at ninq o'clock in the wood near by, with i second, and I will give you an answer with a bullet," "Right you are," said the Austrian, drlnking up his wine. The next morning the two met, to. gether with their friends, In the wood at the appointed line. The Austrian as the insulted party, had the fi...
ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND THE MARBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND THE MARBLES, An elderly gentleman, now residing in Washington, tells this story about Abraham Lincoln. "I was about tell years of age and given violently to the game of mar* bleis. One cold March day my com. panions and I were playing on the sidowalk before my father's shop when I slipped on a piece of ice and foll, cuting my chin. The other boys seized as many of my marbles as they could and made off. Wild with anger, I started after them, calling them names and threatening to anni hilato them, and so on. Suddenly a hand on my collar stopped me and a deep voice said "'We've got enough ill-feeling go ing on in this country these days with. out you boys catching itl" "A big man swung me around and wiped my wounded chin, and then went on "'I saw what they did, my son, Have you any agates left? Good! I'll put up three chiny-alleys, and we'll see who'll win.' "He drew from his pocket three marbles. "'I got them from my boy Tad,' he explained, and then I know who he w...

A CINEMA KING. HIS6 RISE TO SUCCESS, One of America's very latest mil. lionaires is Mr, Siegmund Lubin, the film king. How many millions Mr. Lubin possesses no one seems to know. He himself is not sure, but one thing is certain-every penny of his hluge fortune has been made out of moving pictures. Twenty years or so ago Mr. Lubln went out to Amork. ca from Germany.

TRADE RUNNERS. NOVEL LIFE IN AUSTRALIAN PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914
TRADE RUNNERS. NOVEL LIFE IN AUSTRALIAN PORT. An Interesting phase of life in the port of Newcastle (Australia) a few years ago was that of trade-running. The' ships running to make port were sought out in the open sea by "but cher" boats manned by expert oars men, whose object was to gain the quarter-decklr of the incoming sailors before rival traders, so that they tlight secure the orders for mneat, bread, or clothes, To-day steam tramps do a large share of the coal-carrying trade, and even with the sailors that remain the provldoring of the vessel Is often arranged beforehand by the owners or charterers. The story of the trade-runners Is full of excitement, and not Infrequent ly smacks of dangerous adventure. It was the keenness of trade rivalry that added zest to the game. There were the lookout men, the well-trained oars men and cox, and all the excitement of the chase. Those old marauding sea men of the Mediterranean who chased their prey in evil-looking low-cut ves sels with ...
