CHAPTER XXIX. A Grave Suspicion. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914

CHAPTER XXIX. I A Grave Suspicion. At the end of a week Gay and Herepath were no nearer to a solu tion of the mystery o£ the missing pictures. It was annoying and d!s turblng, and none the less so be cause they had said nothing to the police. True, Gay had communicated the loss to the solicitors to the es tate, and asked for instructions, but had received 110 satisfactory reply. The matter, he was informed, had been reported to tlio trustees, who were "taking steps." Meanwhile, would- Mr.-Gay be so kind as to keep the matter a secret till he heard (rom them again. "Very far from satisfactory," Gay commented. "Still, I've done my duty in the matter. Perhaps those chaps know something and are keep ing it to themselves." "Perhaps it has happened before," Herepath suggested. "Perhaps I have stumbled upon some family scandal. Well, we have done all we can, Har old. But I've still got the idea th, the thief will turn up again. It will amuse me to look out for him." For the moment there wa...

THE MACHINE GUN. A Deadly Instrument of War. Something About It. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914

THE MACHINE GUN. A Deadly Instrument of War. I Something About It. ] (By "Barclay.") We have all heard and read so much < about the machine gun of late that we want to know something mors i about it. This comparatively little weapon has played an important and terrible part in the present war. We have read on several occasions lately that "machine guna mowed the oncom ing Germans down like corn," or some thing equally descriptive. There are Beveral types of machine guns. There is, for instance, the Maxim, Hotchkiss, Gatling, Krupn. Gardner, Nordenfeldt, and the Etir hardt. Each gun is constructed much on the same principle, although there is a quick iiring gun that iires small shells, and not the usual rifle ammuni tion. The French and Germans some- 1 times call a machine gun a mltrail- ' leuse. The only one I am acquainted with is the Maxim, invented by Sir Hiram Maxim, and it is a marvel of human inventive power. The Maxim has to be seen to bo appreciated. It has to be ...

OLD SHOES FOR LUCK. Few people are aware of the origin of the old custom of throwing shoes after a newly married couple. Many people are under the impression that it is done 'for luck," whereas it is merely a corruption of a very old pro ceeding, when the bride's father used to hand over a shoe to the bridegroom as a sign that he gave him full posses sion of his daughter. , From all time ehoes have denoted ■ possession—as the old expression of "stepping into hiB shoes" shows. "When a Bedouin chief is dying, one of his last acts is to hand over to his eldest son, or whoever his heir may bo, his shoes as a token of his taking his place. In many Eastern cities a pair of shoes placed outside a shut door mean that no one dare enter, and in Benares if a woman wishes to turn her atten tion from her market bag for a mo ment, she makes sure that it will be untouched by leaving her shoes by it. Even in the Bible the shoe is used as a symbol of possession, for Ruth's relative handed over a sho...

SAVED THE TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 October 1914

SAVED THE TOWN. It was in the year 1868, after a 'bat tle, and the streets of Madrid were filled with angry crowds, bent on de stroying everything and everybody. Suddenly an unknown man, tali and dark and strong, appeared at the oity hall. "Give me a band of musicians," he said, "and before nightfall I shall c ntrol all .Madrid." He must have been a man of rare personality to have been able to per suade the authorities at ail in that dark hour to give mm anything of the kind, but he did. Going out with the musicians he wandered through the city. While they played he sang—popular songE or some national air. When thes« bored the listeners he mounted old boxes and told funny tales, and by and-bye the people forgot to be angry, and followed their new leader wher i ever he went, laughing over his stor ies and songs. By nightfall peace reigned in the city, and the mob broke up and went home to bed. The man's name was Felipe Ducazel, and he was only twenty-two years old when ho clev erly a...

A certain politician has the happy knack of being able to parry incon venient interruptions with some smart retort that immediately squashes the opposition. He was speaking at a rather noisy meeting not long ago, and after a short time a big lump of wood was thrown at him. Fortunate ly, the aim was bad, and it fell harm lessly on the platform. The speaker picked it up and show ed it to the audience. "Good heavens!" he exclaimed is tones of mock anxiety, "one of our opponents baa lost his head."
