The Pastor's Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 10 October 1914
The Pastor's Letter. My Dear People., Daring the month I. came across the above document, which was entitled The Creed for To-day.". It is very beautiful. If men would live according to it, there would be a new world. This hungering for the best and highest is typical of our day. Yet notice thai this so-called "creed" is much of Jesus teaching, but there -is no hint of that given, no acknowledgement of its source. As if we could have life without a light bringer, could havejjie diamond without thj .carbon.- 'How/ slowly we .learn ! Beautiful as this creed is. you can lind its counterpart in the philosophies of the past and the moral teaching of all time. Where then lies the distinctive features of Christianity1? Just that it adds the missing factor. There was no POWER, to enable the seeker after the best to attain his aim "I can do all things in ILI.M that strengthen me" is the admission of one who had tried the old way and tailed, but,found success in Jesus. Behind the creed, be it...

O R I C K E T. RICHMOND V.

CHAPTER XXII. THE SECRET OF THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 October 1914
CHAPTER XXII. THE SECRET OF THE DEAD. With a dull crack the old door rest ed on its hinges, and a little cloud of fine dust settled to the floor. A puff of air, not close and fetid, but strangely fresh and damp, blew into the faces of the two men. They breathed a trifle shorter arid faster as they strained their eyes ' at the square blach opening which yawned before them, more repellant than in* viting. Trent- shrank back. "It's a queer sort of place," said he, fearfully. "It's just the spot for hidden trea sure," replied Charteris. "Come on, man ! What are you afraid of ?" He snatched the lantern from his companion, and advanced. He cross ed the threshold, with Trent hanging at his heels" like a dog. Before him; dimly seen, was a room about ten feet square, if such it could be call ed. He flashed the light on the ceil ing, which was of rotting black wood, with hanging' cobwebs, and on the walls of mixed flint and timbers, which glistened with moisture. Then he held the lantern down...

CHAPTER XXI. THE LAST TRIAL. "This is the last trial," said Char teris, in a low voice. "We'll have an other go at it, and if nothing comes of our trouble, we'll drop the whole business. I've wasted too much time as it is." I "And took a lot of risks as well," replied Abel Trent, otherwise known as "Isaac Cain. "I'll be glad when we've finished-it always seems to me as if a real ghost was likely to pop out on a fellow up here. It's an un j canny, hair-raising sort of place. But let me have a peep at that chart, | sir, before we begin." The two men put their heads to gether over the yellow bit of parch ment, with its mystic lines, which Violet had discovered in the library.
