CHAPTER XV. FATHER AND DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 7 March 1914

CHAPTER XV. FATHER AND DAUGHTER. Violet watched Guy disappear through the door with staring, strained eyes, and if she could have found - her voice, she would surelj .have called him to come back to her; ;fpr a sort of frenzy of defrauded love overwhelmed her and made her catch at /her throat and gasp inarticulately after him. .Tnen she ran, or rather staggered, tovtlie-door, as if to go after him; but Lord Coldenham who had been .watching her, laid a restraining hand on her arm, and said : " You have done nobly. Do not undo: it now." . "Oh, Heaven ! what have I done? what have I done ?" she moaned. And then her senses failed her, and she would have fallen, had not Lord Goldenham been there to catch her ?in his arms and support her. She had riot fainted, but rather fallen-in a numb despair, which with her exhaustion had made her utterly nerveless. Lord Coldenham placed her gently on the sofa and waited until he saw tlvat. she had recovered somewhat, when he said : " You must not rem...

BRAILE'S BIG WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 7 March 1914

BRAILE'S BIG WELL.' . Perhaps the most idiotic of all the many idiotic schemes with which Brit ons have-been enamored in days gone by, was that which was known at the time us Braile's .Big Weil. M. Braile was a Belgian engineer, residing tem porarily in this country, who in 1848 approached the then Prime Minister (l.ord-John Knssell) with a scheme for sinking a huge shaft, a mile in .diame ter and twenty miles in depth, that "should tap the earth's internal heat, and thereby render England'indepen dent of her coal supply when this gave out. - Lord Russell, always rather attract ed by visionary projects, attentively considered the scheme, and caused plans and estimates to be drawn up. The first difficulty was the inrush of water, which would have been certain to occur, sooner or later. This it was proposed to keep under by pumping, caissons' being used for the purpose of further excavation, while the finish ed portion of the shaft was to be ren dered watertight by & "jacket" ...

GUNCOTTON, AND HOW IT IS MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 7 March 1914

GUNCOTTON, AND HOW IT IS MADE. It was a German chemist named Schonbein who, in 1815, devised I lie first satisfactory method of preparing guncotton, which he proposed as a sub stitute for gunpowder. It was first manufactured in England on a large scale two years later at Faversham. But, besides minor acci dents, a terrible explosion took place in the works there, which created so much distrust that its manufacture in England was discontinued for several years, as the cause of the explosion, with the then imperfect knowledge possessed on the subject, could not be satisfactorily accounted.for. . Improvements were made in Uie pre paration by General von Lenk, an Austrian- artillery officer, . and gun cotton cartridges were introduced to ? the;-Austrian Arrny; but these soon lost-favor. Undaunted by these fail-, ures and disasters, Sir Frederick Abel fand..-Mr.iE. O.

MURDERER TRACED THROUGH DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 7 March 1914

MURDERER TRACED THROUGH DREAM. It IS a somewhat remai'Kable fact that the perpetrators of some notor ious crimes have occasionally been brought to account by means of a dream, an instance of which happen ed in Sutherlandshire in 1830, and led to the detection of the author of a murder sordid in its character. After attending a wedding party at Assynt, in this sequestered Scottish region, on March 19, a pedlar named Murdoch Grant mysteriously disap peared from the public ken, his body eventually being found some four weeks afterwards in a lonely moun tain loch in the same locality. From the marks of violence upon: the head, and the fact that the pockets were empty and turned inside out; it ..was clearly evident that the pedlar .had been a victim of foul play;, but for some time all efforts to discover the murderer proved fruitless. Suspicion at last fell upon a school master named Hugh Macleod,: who was accordingly arrested, and after a searching investigation at the hands; of the sh...
