CHAPTER XVII. TOOK'S COURT, SOHO. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
CHAPTER XVII. TOOK'S COURT, SOHO. : Lance was highly elated by the Frenchman's letter, to which, natur ally enoiigh, he attached the great est importance. "What-a stroke of luc'.n," he re flected. "And it comes 'just at the .right-time;..?? when a stronger bit of evidence is needed than any Forwood and I have been able to pick up. I was certain that Lestocq was keep ing back something about Chnrteris, and this proves that I was right. While the old rascal's money lasted he was true to the man who paid him to be silent, and now that he is destitute again he turns to me for halp. That is the most plausible ; theory, and yet By Jove; could the letter be a decoy, intended to lure me into danger ?" This was a startling thought, but Lance dismissed it from his mind as quickly as it was conceived. He laughed at the absurdity of the idea. "Charteris is down in Norfolk," he reasoned. "I don't suppose he lias seen Lestocq since that day, and he would have been tog sharp to let him know where ...
CHAPTER XVIII. A STRANGE AWAKENING. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
CHAPTER XVIII. A 'STRANGE AWAKENING. V.Where am I ?" Lance spoke the words aloud as he asked himself the question which rose instinctively to his lips. A few moments before . he had opened his eyes in a strange place. He was iy ing, fully dressed on a bed, and at first lie had-no inclination to stir or to take note of ' his surroundings. When finally he sat up it cost him a severe effort, and it was all .he could do to keep from dropping back again. His head was dizzy, and throbbed i with pain. He was weak in every I limb. There was a nauteeous taste in | his mouth, and an-ugly sensation of sickness at his stomach. He felt dazed and confused, and he seemed to have utterly lost the power of reasoning - of concentrating his thoughts. "Where am I ?" he repeated, indif ferently. "What has happened ?" For an instant it occurred to him that he had been ill, and was now in his own chambers at Gray's Inn. But this impression was dispelled as he glanced about the apartment. It was a small an...
Youngsters Beware! [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
Youngsters Beware ! The children's truck nuisance has become so pronounced in Richmond that the Council decided on Monday evening, on the motion of Cr Barcelo, seconded by Cr Bell, to have the by-law extended to all streets throughout the city. At present it only applies to certain main streets. Uoungsters are be coming quite expert in the manage ment of these trucks and it is surprising the speed thny can rush down hill and steer clear of traffic, but, notwithstanding the skill of these youthful " motorists," several accidents have happened, and the practice is certainly a dangerous one.

He had thirty-five minutes to spare, and he made good use of the interval by returning to the King's Head and eating a substantial supper. He was ;in better spirits when he found him self in the train," whirling, swiftly to wards Norwich. It was Saturday night, and the streets of the old city were noisy and crowded. Lance took a short cut from the station, which brought him in a short time to Tombland.

WELL-EDUCATED CONVICTS. CHAT WITH A WARDER ABOUT GENTLEMEN "LAGS." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
WELL-EDUCATED CONVICTS. \ 4 : ' WITH A WARDER ABOUT GENTLEMEN .'LAGS." In the year 1879 a Royal Commis sion, presided over by Loid Kim berley, recommended that all first of fenders should be kept entirely apart from those who had been con.icted more than once. The advice was taken, and so the "star" class came into being, and I Portland became their prison home. ; Here all first offenders who are phy ! sically capable of hard . labour art 1 sent, and consequently Portland holds a larger number of well-born and well-educated .convicts than either Dartmoor or Parkhurst. According to a warder who has served in both Portland and Dart moor, the gentleman lag is either the best or worst of prisoners. At. Portland the first,offender usually fce haves well and gets full remissi n, and only 2 per cent, of the " sta: " class are re-convicted. " But," ad ded the warder, '"if there's one chap worse than another to handle, it is the educated lag who has gone, abso lutely to the bad and is beyend...
SHE WOULDN'T OVERWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
SHE WOULDN'T OVERWORK. She had the reputation of being a good servant, the employment agent said, but a terrible stickler for her rights. Work that she considered a part of her legitimate duties the did well, work that properly belonged to somebody else she wouldn't do at all. '.'And quite right," said the new em ployer. There will be no imposi tion in our house. Nobody's duties will overlap." So she hired the girl. At the end of their first day together the maid was instructed to mount the step ladder and Wind the tall 14-day clock. _ '"You h^ve to turn the key 14 times to wind it clear up," said the .mis tress. "Once for each day the clock runs." "Why didn't you finish ?" her mis tress asked. "Because," said the girl,- ''I'm not sure I shall be here longer than one week, and I'm not going to do the next'girl's work." New York "Sun."

ALASKAN MOSQUITOES. -Mosquitoes in thi icebound north ern country are a plague beyond re lief. They come to life about the middle of May, before the grorn'l 'is thawed out, and while many feet of ice still covers the lakes and all i but the swiftest rivers.

MONEY IN SUNKEN HULLS. 3,000,000 DOLLARS IN THE HOLD OP L'ORIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
MONEY IN SUNKEN HULLS. . 3,000,000 DOLLARS IN THE HOLD OP L'ORIENT. Evidently fortune hunters these days want something easier . than delving at the bottom of oceans, lakes etc., for sunken treasure ships. They have undoubtedly become aware that the sea has its own system of re taining whatever it took the trouble to relegate to Davy Jones's locker, an,d as the years .go. by one hears! less and less of companies orgen'sad j and private parties spending tl.i'ii-j money and time on ventures^ with such remote prospects. But still there ? are many person? ?who believe in the eventual discovery of the hiding-place of one or more of these treasure hulls, and occa sionally we hear of a hopeful who has become possessed of "dope" tending to be an exact chart of the location of a famous sunken bullion ship, and not long after we h~ar of him again., as returning from a fruitless', scarch for these richcs.' There are very few a'ith:ntic trea sure ships which still lie at the bottom of the ocean...
A CURIOUS LOOKING EGG. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 3 October 1914
A CURIOUS LOOKING "EGG. A shark's ' egg is one of- 'the most .jdd looking things imaginable, and lias no more resemblance to an egg, .ilrictly speaking, than it has to a .'aving-stone. In one variety it is i'lo,v-shaped, and 'has a long "horn," or "feeder," at each corner, ft is about two inches long, and the colour almost pure black. ! ' It is unprovided with shell, as we ! nderstand that word, but the con tints arc protected by a thick, lea th:ry covering, which has almost as miuh elasticity about it as a cover ing of rubber would have.; The "feelers" mentioned catch hold of and wind themselves around pieces of seaweed and other float ing objects, ahd hang until the egg is hatched. One variety of the shark lays eigh teen eggs during the month of April. These -float about until early in De cember, when the little sharks emerge.
