[ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] CHAPTER 1 i lr oy idle cnance you suouia bvwi : find yourself in the Beddyngly road, , West, you will discover that Nos. 17a, | 17b, 17c, and 17d are flats, jnicrosco pic in dimension and modest as to rent. The name-plate in the hall be low will indicate that the occupants: are Mr George Gilmor, Mr Stanfield Wrench, sjnd Mr Byfield.i No. 17d was, until recently, unoccupied. When one is living: in "digs.," with-, out much society or amusement, small excitements are apt to assume the rank of big ones. Both Mr Gilmor and Mr Wrench were lonely young men, working in . different depart ments of the same big bank, who were "tended for" by the same angular, drab-colored charwoman. Byfield did not fall within quite the same cate gory. A clever, albeit insufficiently pushing, young man, he kept the wolf from the door by free-lance literary I and artistic work, and formed the odd I member of the trio. j It was upon a windy Monday in I February that Bu...

The Man Who Would Not Fight [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

The Man Who Would Not Fight By Nonxian Innes. The man iri the chimney corner looked the newcomer up and down, and, ignoring his greeting, settled himself once again beside the hearth. For the best part of the afternoon he had sat there staring into the depths; of the glowing logs, and now and again taking a pull at the tankard upon the settle at his side; a lank, clean-featured youth, dressed with some, pretence to fashion, he made a strange picture sprawled in the ingle nook, with the firelight playing on his boyish face, unpowdered hair, his ruffles and his steel buttons. "There's a promise of a roug'h night, sir/' said the stranger, hanging his clqak and hat behind the door. "Devil take the night," growled the other irritably. ~ His companion stared, and at that moment the innkeeper entered with a jug of spirits, sugar, and a lemon, and set" the tray upon the table, and began lfghting the lamp, for the dusk had fallen and the room was all in shadow. "Landlord, how far am I from C...

General Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

General Notes. In Sydney the local Reehabites defeated a Victorian team by 155 to 23 and 90, the home players thus 'winding by an innings and 42 runs. During the holidays many senior grounds have been occupied by a junior carnival in which picked teams representing the various Metropolitan Junior Associations have played each other. These inter-associatlon matches, promoted by the Y.C.A. and the Sub-District Association, have provoked much interest, not only among the players, but also in the dis tricts represented. The carnival may be set down as a decided success. It should secure the twofold purpose of bringing the various associations Into closer friendliness, and o! quickening the interest and ambition of our junior players. The interstate junior game, Victoria v. South Australia, played at Adelaide, resulted in victory for the local men by twelve runs. The scores were:—South Australia, 157 and 176; Victoria, 237 and S4. In a match Fitzroy v. Balrnsdale, played at the latter pl...
