"Then," he said, "if you have no thing special to say to me, there is no necessity for me to stay." "What's the matter with you, Charlie?" cried Torfrey. "It seems to me that I have a pretty collection of friends to help me in my difficul ties." . There was a note of petulance in his voice. Pudifin made no answer for some time. He was watching1 the faces of Diego and Benson. At last he said to Torfrey, "Martin, I should like to have a few words with you in pri-; vate." "In private? Certainly, my dear fellow, if you think there is any neces sity to manufacture more mysteries than you have ready at your hand." "I don't want to make more mys teries, Martin; but I have something for your private ear." "Let's ^go into the drawingroom, then. You'll excuse me, Diego and Mr. Benson?"

CHAPTER 12 A Little Burglary is Planned "If you are referring to me, Mr Par son," cried Diego, "you may take back the insult with interest!" Diego launched a blow at him; Pudi- ' fin stepped aside and avoided it. Tor- ^ frey intervened angrily, exclaiming: ; "You will both be pleased to remem- : ber that this is my house; I think you ; had better go, Pudifin." " • Pudifin immediately left the room ; and walked out of the house. It would be nearly time now for his interview with Mr Granger, and he hurried along the road to St. Maurice. The night was dark, but the road was familiar to him, and he walked fast, occupied by his own thoughts to i the exclusion of all exterior things. He noticed no unusual movement in his ; neighborhood till he heard a whistle from behind him. It was answered : by another in front. He could see noth- i ing.

i AIEETEGAN KNOCKED OUT. || In the presence of astonished spectators in if the 'Sydney Stadium on January 24, - H<ughie If jdehegan, the lightweight champion of Aup fetralla, was knocked out by Milburn Saylor, in the eleventh round in what was to have been a 20 rounds contest. Mekegan played considerably for the body, and at in-fighting he generally had the bet ter of matters, his two fists repeatedly beat ing a tattoo on Saylor's ribs. The eleventh round saw the defeat of Mehe gan. After having worked Saylor toward the corner, he bent low and dashed for- the body. Saylor threw a swinging right uppercut, which, finding its way past Mehegau's glove to the jaw, sent the Australian down for seven seconds. Saylor punished him severely and dropped him again with a right to the head. Mehegan crawled across the boards to the ropes, and pulled himself to his feet at the call of "eight," only to be knocked down again for three seconds. With admir able courage he rose again, but Sa...

CHAPTER 2 The Land of Allah [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

CHAPTER 2 The Uand of Allah When, on the following morning, Mrs Carter-Bonham passed from her bed room into their pretty pink-and-white private saloon where the petit-dejeuner had been laid, a note was lying beside her plate. Tearing it open, she found it to be a few scribbled lines from somebody named Marjorie Colyer, who apologised for addressing her, but asking whether it would be convenient for her to call at her saloon and see her at noon that day, as she wished to speak to her in private. The letter concluded with the words: "I know I am a perfect stranger to you, but if you will be kind enough to allow me to speak to you in private, please send word by the waiter to -Room No. 202. I think what I have to tell you may interest both yourself and your husband." "That's rather curious," remarked Carter-Bonham when his wife handed him the letter in silence. "Who is she, I wonder?" The girl who is here alone," replied Mrs Carter-Bonham. "I learnt last night at the bureau that her na...

TAKE-AL[?] SOMETHING ABOUT TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

TAKE-ALE SOMETHING ABOUT TREATMENT. In a letter answering an inquiry made by a Nhill farmer, Mr A. E. V. Richardson, M.A., Agricultural Super intendent, saj-s take all is caused by a fungus (Ophiobolus graminis) which attacks the wheat plant at the junction of the stem and root and robs the plant of the nourishment that should go to the development of the head and the grain. The disease is usually noticed in small patches and J spreads very much in the same man ner as an oil stain, that is in ever widening concentric circles. If any plants be taken from the centre of the take all infected patch, and the sheaf stripped from the straw, it will be noted that a curious blackish in crustation is visible near the junction of the stem and root. This corre sponds to an advanced stage of the parasitic attack, and the black in crustation is due to the spores of the fungus. The fungus can not only live on the wheat plant, but on many of the native grasses, and particu larly on spear grass and ...

ONION GROWING HINTS REGARDING CULTIVATION. SELECTING SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

HINTS REGARDING CULTIVA TION. SELECTING SEED. ■Mr J. Roebuck, of jLongwood.a STin. rainfall district in South Australia, has been giving his fellow-members of the local bureau of agriculture hints re garding onion growing on small areas. His advice should be useful to irrigatidnists, and residents in our village settlements. " When selecting varieties from which to grow seed," he says, "first decide whether the onions are for late keeping or for marketing straight off the land. The hard keeping sorts do not crop nearly so heavily, and they are not so juicy and mild in flavor. Further, the plants are more difficult to raise in cold, wet districts than the softer sorts, which wrill not keep long. It is a good practice to grow both an eariy and a late sort. "The seeds must be grown a good dis tance apart, as they readily hybridise. Select sound, fair sized bulbs of good color, firm right up to the neck, and small. Plant them in rows 2ft. apart, the bulbs being 1ft, apart in the rows. B...
