CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911
CHAPTER XI. For some little time the two men sat facing each other in silence; then all at once Redgrave seemed to re member an important point in the affair, a point which he could not un derstand forgetting at such a moment. Like a flash the thought of a partly written note left- behind by .his uncle leapt into his mind, and all trembling with excitement, he ventured to broach the subject. "After you had gone, uncle, what do you thinlc we found?" he asked in as steady a voice as he could command. .. The other started slightly at the question, but answered with well feigned composure. "1 have no idea. In my hurry to get away I may have left half-a-dozen things knocking about behind me." Redgrave was becoming more mys tified than ever. The whole case was beyond him. He could neither compre hend nor grasp it. -Surely, he argued to himself, if his uncle wrote the note which was found on the table-and it was without doubt in his handwriting -he would have some remembrance of having don...
CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911
CHAPTER XII. When Joyce Redgrave, an hour later that same night, left Deepdean, and returned to his own residence at Hails brook, it was with a mind full of sur ging and conflicting thoughts. Just at the moment when he considered Croxford was safe enough 'elsewhere, he suddenly returns, and at one stroke destroys all his plans. It was true that his uncle had promised to give him henceforth a splendid income for life, but the sum mentioned was, in comparison with his relative's mil lions, a mere flea-bite-a drop in the ocean of his vast wealth. Had the scheme of which he wa3 cognisant turned out successful, he would him- j self become a millionaire, but for the | present he was doomed to disappoint ment in that particular respect. 1 Upon reaching home, he, in spite of the solemn assurance he had given l his uncle never to again revert to his disappearance, sat down and indited the following letter to Willington, the Scotland Yard detective: - Dear Sir,-f have surprising news . -? for...
CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911
CHAPTER XIII. I Perplexed beyond measure at the re ceipt of this mysterious communica tion, and with no idea as to the author of it, Miss Devereux was quite unable to decide which course she ought to take in the matter. If the man who had turned up at the Hall was not Croxford, her lover, who, then, was he? But, she argued, the whole thing was perfectly ridiculous. She had ocular evidence before her that it was Mos tyn, although she was prone to admit that his voice was somewhat different. Yet this was a mere detail, and lots of things would account for that. In deed, Croxford had complained to her of a severe cold, and it was undoubted ly this fact which made his tones so thick and hoarse. As regards every other respoct, the man who had return ed was her lover, at least she could come to no other conclusion. Still this anonymous letter-so earnest, so forcible in its language-what did it portend, and whom was it from? These were questions which kepi on repeat ing themselves all the ...

The Referendum. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
The Referendum. | In our columns is published an 1 | advertisement showing the form of the referendum voting papers to be used on the 26th instant. They are remarkable specimens of the politicians art. They could not well convey less information to the' voter concerning the issues at stake, and yet they are framed with the object of making vaBt, and far-reach ing, and startling changes in the relations of New South Wales with the Commonwealth. Any issue submitted to the people through the medium of the referen dum ought to be stated in the plain est possible terms. For instance, such a question as^'.'Are you in favor of the abolition of the ' House of Lords-Yes or No ?"-'leaves nobody in doubt as to the exact nature of I the proposition. But the referen dum questions to be answered a couple of weeks hence resemble noth ing so much as cleverly drown docu ments. The forms are involved, tho meaning is hidden, and those who are incautious enough to sign''the &lt; documents do so...

Love Tragedy, IN THE QUARTIER LATIN There lias been another love tragedy at the Quartier Latin (wired the Paris correspondent of Hie " Daily Telegraph" on February 1). A young Servian stu dent has been shot by a girl with whom lie was on intimate terms, and she is lying in a hospital with a self-inflicted, wound in the head, from which she is not expected to recover.

Her violent and jealous character had earned for Blanche Qucnault the nickname of " IBataille," as she herself explained to him on tliat occas ion, candidly adding that she never shrank from avenging herself on any one who had done her a bad turn. 4, Although not more than 20 years of age, the girl had already had ...

TRIAL BY RICE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
TBIAI. BY RICE. They liave peculiar methods .of trying suspects in Bengal. One, of these is call ed "Lrial by rice." At a recent trial, every person .-suspected was ordered to be.pres-. ent, . and all turned up;-. First, the people were made to sit in a semi-circle and'a "plate"-a square of plantain-leaf-was set before each. Then a.priest-walked up and "down chanting and scattering Mowers. This ceremony over, one of the clerks went to each man and gave liini riiw rice and told him to chow-It to a pulp. /After about ten minutes they were told to stop and ejeet it into the plantain-leaf. . All did so easily, with the exception of three men. One of these three promptly commenced to cry, and bogged for mercy, confessing everything, and saying that, another of the three was the chief instigator. It is a curious fact that fear, arising from an evil conscience, prevents saliva coining to the inouth, with the. result described.

A CURIOUS MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
CURIOUS MISTAKE. The chiropodist had just moved'into his new promises. Before his arrival they had been occupied by a dentist. Though as yet no white marble foot upon the pavement informed the uninitiated that within dwelt an operator upon corns and bunions at a reasonable rate; yet such was the case. A rushing business had been in pro gress all the morning, among others two young ladies aged about eighteen years. "Doctor," said one; "I bring you Norah. You relieved me from great pain some months ago." Tho doctor didn't quite recall what work ho had done for the girl, but po litely requested Norah to walk into the operating-room and" get ready. This, in the language of the chiropodist, means to remove the shoe and stocking. When the chiropodist entered the room where Norah was awaiting him, she sat leaning back in tho big chair, with a nervous ex pression upon her face, but without any change in her attire. The operator was a trifle surprised; but lie supposed this' was a new experi...
