The Storyteller. The House on the Sunless Side. CHAPTER VI.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 5 February 1904
The Storyteller. 'l ie Houge or tie ýSutleg Side. CHAPTER VI.-OONTINUIRD. She looked out, but, beyond a slight movement among the shrubs in the border, could coe nothing. She wondered whether one of the dogs had got loose. After a little interval she fancied that she heard a noise again in the direction of the portico. Then she was quite certain that she heard footsteps crossing the wide landing outside her door and going down the staircase. She opened her door softly and looked&lt; ont. It was completely dark on the landinig, and thousands of footsteps had ceased, and Bab was about to return to her room, wondering whether she had been the victim of a nervous fancy, when she became conoione that there were whispering going on somewhere not very far off. A whisper in the dark without the know. ledge whence it came, gave the listener a very unpleasant chi I. Barbara was so much startled indeed that, by an involuntary movement, she pulled the handle of her own door, causing it ...

The Municipal Stakes. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 5 February 1904
The Municipal Stakes. [Br VEDETTE.] THE Municipal Stakes this year gives pro mise of furnishing an exciting contest, not for first place, as it is an easy task to select the candidate who will have the honour of topping the poll. Take the favourite (Dr. Blackall's representative) away, and we have three competitors left and- these to my mind will make an interesting contest for second and third places respectively. Two of these candidates are old and tried per- 1 formers and the third, Mr. A. 0. McPherson's representative, will for the first time make t his appearance on the Municipal track. 1 Privately this colt has shown his admirers t some excellent work, but in public very 1 little (beyond that he is a straight and popular candidate) is known of him. Yet he has the makings of a good and solid representative, and if he shapes in public as well as he has done privately, his party have great expectations of his success. On nomination day only two candidates put in an appearance. Th...

CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 5 February 1904
CHA'TER VII. IT seemed probable that, after the enoounter that night in the hall, the two ladies brought together in such strange circumstances at Hayle Sands, would feel some constraint on both sides. Indeed Barbarba, when she came doi n to breakfast the next morning, greeted Luoette -who was already bustling about the place with a basket of keys on her arm-with a markedly frigid inclination of the head. Bnt the Frenchwoman was not so easily put out of countenence. Advancing towards the girl with one of those mechanical smiles which Barbara was no longer inclined 'to consider charming, she put the tips of her fingers lightly upon her shoulders, and said, with her head on one side ' Well you are still angry wid me for' de little fib I told you last night-n'eat-ce pas?' Barbara stammered, and blushed, and tried to escape; but Lucette, the strength of whose grip she had reason to know, held her fast.
