THE MESSAGE OF THE CASEMENT CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
THE MESSAGE OF THE CASEMENT By COMRIE COLQUHOUN CHAFTKR X. It was night, and tranquillity reigned | In the garden o£ Trevor lodge. A crescent moon rode serenely through banks ot fleecy clouds, tipping the tops ot shrubs and apple trees with silvery light, and giving a subdued sheen to the trim lawn. The lights in the drawlngroom Had just been extinguished, and a few moments afterwards a young man climbed the , garden wall and stole noiselessly to . wards the house. He avoided the gravel path and kept to the lawn, the thick, •velvety turf deadening hlfl footsteps. When he arrived at the gravelled pla teau underneath the window he stooped down, and picking up a pebble, shot It from his flnger and thumb in the direc tion of a casement. He listened atten tively. Tat! The sound told him that the light pebble had struck the window. A few moments of anxious silence, and then his signal ,was answered by a gen tle tap on the window-pane. He retraced his steps across the lawn, sat down on a g...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
CHAPTER II. "It cannot be said that you possess the . Brownlow spirit, Mab. Fretting your heart out for a man who has ceased to . remind you of his existence—why, your conduct is perfectly silly." Yes, silly— that's the word." Mr., Brownlow was undoubtedly angry with" his niece. ' > "And to think that a wealthy man is sager to throw himself at your feet," he went on; "a man who can crowd your life with luxuries. Why, you ought to be thankful that that penniless doctor's assistant chose to make himself scarce, and so left you free to make a marriage in keeping with the traditions of your family." As he spoke, Jlab sat with bent head, her interlaced hands on her knee?. Her uncle's ivorda induced sombre thoughts. Suddenly she roused herself. Her blue eyes became illumined with a tender light. "I am bound to Gilbert Davenport by a promise," she said, quietly, "and I shall not break It. The fact that I have not heard from' him Is 110 proof that he has forgotten me. Many things may hav...
THE RUSSIAN PEASANT. WHAT HE WANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
THE RUSSIAN FEASANT. WHAT HE ' WANTS. J.P. in "M.A.P." writes:— The Russian peasant, while demand ing changes quite as revolutionary as the artisans of the towna, demands thorn in a somewhat different spirit, and looks to other agencies. To the Russian peasant, the enemy is not the far dis tant and half divine Tsar; the enemy is the iandlord, the bailiff, the tax col lector, the publican, who bleed him, and pauperise him, and starve him. It is against these immediate enemies that the peasant rages, and, therefore, in the Russian country districts revolution has taken the shape of burning landlords' houses and sometimes killing the land lords themselves. It is landlordism the peasant wants to destroy, not Tsardom. And accordingly, there arc two revolu tionary currents not altogether flowing In the same direction, in fact, flowing in opposite directions. The revolutionary movement of the towns is against Tsar dom; the revolutionary movement in the country is rather for Tsardom an J ag...
THE SHAM HUSBAND. A WIFE'S SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
THE SHAM HUSBAND. A WIPE'S SCHEME. "Would you like to have a new suit of clothes and 1001. besides ?" The words were addressed by an old lady to an in dividual who was strolling aJong one o£ the streets of Paris, shivefing, and in rags, as he was out of work, and hardly knew whither to turn for a bit of bread. Thinking this a poor jest, the man vouchsafed no reply, and when the offer was repeated he inquired, sulkily, "Do you want my life?" "No. All you have to do is to bo this lady's husband," said the venerable dame, pointing to a pretty young woman, by whom she was accom panied. This explanation would have been a riddle, even to the most astute, and the individual who had been thus favored made no effort to get to the bot tom of a mystery which was beyond his intellect, but the idea was not so very repugnant, after all, to any admirer of the fair sex; and the new suit of clothes and the money proving an additional, and even more substantial, inducement, ho accepted the propositio...
THE LEGION OF HONOR. FOR FRENCH ACTRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
THE LEGION OF HONOR. FOR FRENCH ACTRESSES. Nominations (wrote the correspondent at Paris o£ the London "Daily Tele graph" on the 2rth of Juiy) for Madame Bartet and Madame Sarah Bernhard; in the Legion of Honor, proposed by the Minister oC Fine Arts, having been re jected by the ancient and traditional chancery of the Order. M. Jules Claretie has applied to the very fountain-head and obtained the red ribbon for the for mer actress, the most distinguished lady societaire of his company. The President of the Republic is, by right. Grand Mas ter of the Order of the Legion of Honor. M. Claretie obtained an audience of M. Loubet, and asked him whether he disap proved of conferring the cross on so dis tinguished an actress as Madame Bartet. The President, on the contrary, approved heartily, and there and then signed the needful decree. This having received the sanction of the chancery, which was a matter of course under the circum stances, will appear shortly in the "Jour nal Offlciel." I...

THE CHRISTIE JEWEL ROBBERY. The sequel to the theft o£ jewels from Christie's was heard at the Old Bailey oil July 25th, when the woman, Annie Grant, described as an actress, wis In dicted for stealing a pearl necklace of the value of L2000, tlie property of Messrs Agnew.

WORRY AND THE LONG LIFE. A SUGGESTIVE LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
WORRY AND THE LONG LIFE. A SUGGESTIVE LECTURE. " Many - valuable and suggestive papers have been read before the Public Health Congress on a variety of subjects, from London drainage to sanatoria for con sumptives, but none has arrested atten tion more surely than the presidential address delivered by Sir James Crichton Brown on the possibility of living to the age of live score years. It was a Napoleonic maxim that no man was any good after GO; recently Professor Ostler startled young .men of 40 by telling them that their period of usefulness was over, and that by the time they reached 60 they had better take a dose of chloroform. : Sir James Crichton-Browne seeks to reassure them. Out of the fulness of his scientific knowledge he assures them that it is a good working hypotheosis that the natural life of a man is 100 years. We live admittedly in a neurotic age; we hear much of physical deterioration, on the one hand, and of nervous break down on the other. Yet, with-it all, the on...

Mi1 Waddel! at Cudal. While in Cudal a couple of deputations waited on Mr Waddell regarding local requirements. A deputation froni ;tlie School oi Arts' committee asked for a special grant to wards building a new School of Arts. TheX, however, received the same reply as the deputation at Canowandia, which was that no special grants we.-e now made, but there was a fixed amount for subsidy which they would receive. A second deputation representing the ratepayers of the municipality waited on the Minister to urge him to use his in fluence with the government to get the llorec Shire to withdraw their opposition to the absorption of.the municipality. M* Waddell,; in reply, said he did not Isnov/ if the shire council had the power to refuse to consent to the absorption.
