QUEER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914
QUEER. The origin of Lhe word "queer" is due to Quin. He bet one hundred pounds, with a nobleman one evening that by the next morning at break fast time there would be a word in most people's mouths that was never heard before. That night, when the theatre closed, he got all the "supers" and others whom he had hired, furnished each with a large lump of chalk, and in structed one and all to go through the prinoipal streets of London and chalk on' the pavement the word "Queer." The next morning people were con founded by the writing on the flags. Some believed It was significant of danger—that a secret enemy was near, and this was his watchword; so the word went around in a' most ama aing way. It might be said to be not "!■ most people's mouths," but in "everybody's mouth." Quin, of course, won the wager.

Hugh, of course, was much dejected, and he would not deny it. To him it seemed monstrous that they must be sitting there in that busy hotel, cheek by jowl with tourists who had come to see the citadel and to tear orange blossom from" unoffending trees. The stories told of1- Dan Heresford by his American friends were justified be yond cavil. The man was an eccen tric, who shut his doors upon his fel lows when the whim took him, and would not open them even at the call of a woman's honor. It seemed in credible, but it was true. "He must have'got my telegram," he said at the —"it would liav>) been returned to me, surel.v, if he re fused delivery." Mat settled that doubt by sending Legarre immediate ly to the post office. The fellow re turned in ten minutes with the desir ed information. The telegram had been delivered "The nigger man, he got him, mi lord.

CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock House. I. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914
CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock hfouse. I. It' was just twelve-o'clock on the following morning when the train put them down at the station of Cintra, and tliey passed out to find a car riage "with three springs and a rope," as Mat Michel put it, waiting for them at the door. Here, alBo, was the interpreter whom Elkington obliging ly sent to them—the broth of a man whose speech brought tears to their eyes. There- had been' an early thunder storm down in Lisbon; but the air was glorious here upon the hoigbt, and ss redolent of sweet perfumes that they might have been set &lt;lown suddenly in an Oriental garden. Per fume of orange and lemon trees, of roses which made a bower of every house, of great gardenias and flower ing shrubs—rocks which v. ere hidden by blossoms, a vista of mountain and of sea beautiful beyond imagination, justified in an Instant all that had been said of this incomparable re treat. And dominating all upon the proud crest was the oid palace of-the A'"-yish king...

ni. They watched their guest ashore, and then fell to the discussion of a plan. Hugh had already dispatched :t telegram to Heresford, and ho paced the deck impatiently as though a re ply must reach him before he slept. George Hedges, a little frightened bj' the night air, and quite- without an eye for the beauties of Lisbon as the darkness revealed them, said that he did. not believe a word of what he had heard, and that the morning .would justify him. "If the man has any conscience at all, he will see you," said he. "Let ua all go to bed and sleep upon it— quite assured that we shall laugh at our credulity. My dear Hugh, is it either possible or probable that. the man who proved himself so good a friend to Lady St. Denys in the hour of her necessity, will .now try to con vince us that he is a scoundrel? I say that it is preposterous—absolutely pre posterous. There is no other word in th language." "Except the Portuguese for whisky and soda," said Mat, as a sudden freshet of hope ca...

Leila and Her Lover. By MAX PEMBERTON. ' Published by Arrangement-with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) II. Here it may be said that very defin ite news of tlie missing man had car ried these pilgrims to Lisbon. Not only did Patty's American friend as sure her that letters to Don Heres lord were being addressed to the post office in the city, but the detectives whom Hugh employed brought unim peachable evidence of his having been • seen at the theatre at the very time when Leila had gone into Scotland. That Heresford was just tlio man to be attracted by the Portuguese revo lution, and to wish to see it out, all agreed. He would have gone there in the spirit of the true adventurer; and nothing should be easier than .to find him in a country where every stranger was suspect, and none really welcome to the revolutionaries. Mat Michel had taken a bold course in all this, and he never doubted that it would succeed. "We have only to ask the American Consul ...
