III. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
III. They watched their guest ashore, and then fell to the discussion of a plan. Hugh had already dispatched a telegram to Heresford, and lie paced the deck impatiently as though a re ply must reach him before lie slept. George Hedges, a little frighten ?d by 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 us 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 vinco 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 came...

CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock House. I. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
CHAPTER XVI. At the Rock House. I. It was just twelve o'clock on the | following morning when the train, put them down at the station of Cintra and they 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, also, 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 iiir was glorious here upon the height' and so redolent of sweet perfumes' that they might have been set down 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 were 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 old palace of the M oorish kings •• now flying ...

It was pleasing to note that the majority were.members who have been connected with tho dub since its inception seven years ago, showing that tho rifle as a sport is not a passing fancy. Public interest in the club has alwavs been fully sustained, and at tho present it is stronger and in a better position than over it had been. Tho reading of tho balance sheet showed a satis factory state of aiYairs, the receipts being considerably augmented by the team's winnings throughout the year, being a total of £12. Several mem bers expressed satisfaction with the balance sheet, and commended the committee for its management and control of the club's finances. Oapt.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
II. I-Iugh, 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 of Dan Heresford by his American friends were justified be yond cavil. The man was ah 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 table—"it would have been returned to me, surely, 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. The peoples at the bureau say, Sir 'Eresford, he is ill, and no mis take. His doctor, Mister Smeeth, ho gone away to America lo...

HOSPITAL FETE CONCERT AND ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
HOSPITAL FETE CONCERT AND ART UNION. The curtain was finally rung down on the Hospital Feto of 1914 on Wed nesday evening last, when the con cert and drawing of the art union prizes took place in Bailie's Theatre Royal. Tho committe were not for tunate in their choice of an evening as a more boisterous and unpleasant night could hardly bo conceived, and this, combined with the fact that tho Nhill public have of late had a surfeit of entertainment, was no doubt tho cause of such a small number putting in an appoarance. However, the com- 1 mittee decided on proceeding with : the programmme, and this was done, the state of the weathor outside seemingly did not dampen tho spirits of the ladies and gentlemen on the committees or the ardour of the artists who took part , in the eniertainment. Two long tables had been placed at the front of the hall, and on these were arranged numerous articles to be disposed of both by sale and art union, and considering the limited number present, the la...
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. Handsome men are generally only clothes-props. Cryin' over spilt milk ain't no good —it on'y makes it skimmier. A man may And a woman's eyes beautiful and never know the exact color of them. The real man-hater doesn't exist, and the sham one gives up directly her lips are kissed. The capable woman will always have a baby to nurse, and the baby will be her husband. Poetry is a charming hobby, but there's no money in it, and it has a shocking effect on the hair. The happiest woman' is the one who does not marry the man she loves; then she can go on loving him. Most women regard men as they do the Ten Commandments—something to be studied, but not obeyed. It's easiest to get a man to marry you when he first loses his head; then he'll do anything, and not know he's doing it. A platonic friendship usually ends in the woman losing her heart and the man his temper . . . or- the man his appetite and the woman her complexion. Modest demeanor is not only becom ing but discr...
TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. Coal is not used as carefully as it might be. When breaking up a large lump of coal it is generally done by striking it vigorously in a haphazard fashion with the back of the axe. which wastes the coal by pounding it to a dust. Now a coal chisel costs but a few pence and this applied to the lump of coal along the grain or seam a*. Mice splits it cleanly and without any waste of dust. Actor: What, back so soon? Didn't the play take? Actress: Yes, the play took; the manager took the receipts, the bai liffs. the scenery, the landlords the trunks, and the author took to drink!

TEA AND TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914
TEA AND TEEXII. It has been asserted that excessive tea drinking is responsible for the mo dern increase—if increase there really is—in denial casrs. No doubt the con sumption of hot solutions of tannin sweetened with sugar, and drunk while eating bread and butter, is highly cal culated to cover the routs of the teeth with a good culture medium for the hostile microbo, and. as the poor rarely adopt any measure of bussal hygiene, wo are quite disposed to admit (says a medical journal) that the ravages so commonly observed among the teeth, even of quite young people in the pre sent day, are contributed to by the pre valent devotion to the drinking of de coctions miscalled "tea."
