CHAPTER LIV. DRIVEN TO DOOM. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

j CHAPTER LIV. I 'j DRIVEN TO DOOM. When Basil the Buccaneer stood awaiting the shock of his vessel driving upon the shore, he held , tightly clasped in hts arms his little boy. The shock came, the waters dashed , over the wreck, sweeping the deck, and the buccaneer was hurled against the wreckage with such a force that momentarily stunned him, and he relinquished his hold upon the child. > In an instant he regained his strength and consciousness, but the , boy was gone. He shouted for him, swam around in the wild waters, looking for him in the darkness, and , then, in'despair, was driven ashore. . Others sunk in the waves about htm, but he, weighted down though he was with gold and jewels, reached ; the shore. Believing his child dead, fearing that the boats would land and pursue him, he ran with all speed away from the scene, for he meant . not to die upon the gallows or yajd arm if in his power to save himself. ' Several days after, worn out, half starved, and wretched, he rea...

THE MISTLETOE KISS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

THE MISTLETOE KISS. " What ls your name ?" Although this had nothing to do with the liver-wing and the merrythought of the fowl, still the waiter answered, " Tosspot-Timothy Tosspot." "Then. Timothy Tosspot, answer my questions. Are yon a man who would eat his grandfather or his grandmother, or the liver-wing of his aunt, or, perhaps, the merrythought of his mother in-law, ali de ceased ? Knowing, Tosspot, that that thing that yon call a fowl might be one of those near relations, or, for the matter of that, only a distant cousin, do you mean to tell me that in cold blood yon would dismember that rela tive, and roast it, or boil it, or eat it cold, or grill its bones, or curry it. or make à spatch cock of it ?" Tosspot, during these inquiries, edged nearer and nearer to the door, for a vague suspicion that the new guest was a lunatic crossed his mind; and the carving knife was close te his hand, and so was the fork, and the former might in a moment be thrust into his heart and the la...

CHAPTER LI. WRECKED. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

CHAPTER LI. WRECKED. Upon arriving in New Orleans, Luhne, the buccaneer's wife, sought Iii-to find a hiding-place. She knew not ^Hfehere to go-what to do. But in ^^Rralking about the city, with Priscilla ^Vcarrying her child, she came upon a little vine-covered cottage that looked very inviting. W It was in the outskirts of the city, * was a snug little home, with flower and vegetable garden, and a most cosy retreat, in fact. Into it she went, and a kindly-faced matroq met her. Yes, the place was to rent, as she lived there all alone, and a married daughter in the North, whose health was poor, wished her to come on and live with her. ' If I could get the right parties,' the woman added, ' I would let my ' cow, chickens, and old horse and chaise all go with the place.' The price was asked, and it was most reasonable. ' I will take it,' said Luline. . For three years I wish to . let it, ma'am.' ' I will take it for that time.' The money was paid, and two days after Luline said, sadly ...

A NOTABLE PARISH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

A NOTABLE PARISH CHURCH. INo Parish Church in England has. says . che *' Sunday Header," during thia century, < gained a greater reputation than has that of i St. Peter's, Iieeds. Yet this is not owing to j the architectural beauty of the edifice, . though that is by no means small, but owing to the famous and wonderfully able men who j hare presided over its destinies as Vicars of 1 Leeds, and to the great reputation of its parish work and its choir, j Leeds Parish Church is a noble building with a splendid square tower, rather heavy and massive in appearance, standing in the centre. The chief entrance to che church is beneath this tower. There are che usual Bide aisles and massive pillars inside the edi fice, with a wide nave, and roomy cboir stalhv 1 A strong and wide oak gallery does much to darken the church, and spoil the effect of the stained glass windows and fine carving It would certainly be no small gain to the structure from the architectural point of view, to...

CHAPTER LII. THE NEMESIS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

CHAPTER Lil. THE NEMESIS. When Rodney Randolph knew just who was the man who had so deceived him, he made up his mind that he would be avenged upon him. True, Basil Barton had saved his life, but the debt was cancelled. Possessing ample means, he ordered a schooner built, and upon the same model of the vessel of the buccaneer, for he went to builders of tbat craft and told them just what he wanted. The schooner was armed thoroughly, when finished, and Government put her in commission, making Rodney Randolph her commander with the rank of captain. The schooner Rodney Randolph j had named the Nemesis, and in her he meant to hunt down Basil the Buccaneer. About the seas cruised the Nemesis, her stern, sad-faced commander at tending to all duties developing upon him, yet ever with the determination ] to find Basil the Buccaneer. ! And (rom sea to sea went the desperate pirate, robbing, killing, and : escaping all vessels that attempted j his capture. Pirate though he was, he still loved...

A Walk Through London. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

n I Walk Through London. The largest city of the world is London, lying in four counties and having a population of 5,000,000, equalling the combined population of Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Rome. To walk through all the streets, avenues, lanes, and alleys of the city, never traversing the same one twice, would require a ten-mile walk every day for nine years. The streets, placed in a row, would reach round the world, and leave a remnant that would stretch from London to San Francisco.

PLEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

PLEASURES. There are pleasures of only a short' lived bloom \ That "perish and fall to an early tomb, As the green leaf meets decay ; Like flowers they bloom in a sonny clime. In youth's gay spring and manhood's prime But die when nipped by the frosts of ** time ; The pleasures of sense are they. Pleasures there are of a longer date, Born for a higher and nobler fate Of a more exalted kind. Youth may pass and the prime be gone, v And old friends part from UB one by one, * But still the immortal flowers bloom on ; These are the pleasures of mind.

A SOUTH SEA BRIDE. ( _ i A missionary to the South Bea Islands, thus describes the dress cf. a native bride on her first; appuarance ^+ -after the marriage ceremony:-" Her bridal gown was a man's drab-^oloured great coat, pat on above lier native grass skirts, and, sweep ing down to her heels, buttoned, tight. Over this she had hong on a vest, and above that again, most »maring of all, she had donned a pair of men's trousers, drawing the body over her head and leaving a leg dangling gracefully over each of her shoulders, and streaming down her back. "Fastened to one shoulder was a red shirt, and to the other a striped »jae, waving about her like wings, as she sailed along. About her head a red shirt had been twisted like a turban.and her notions of art demanded that a sleeve thereof should hang aloft over each of her ea re.

UNCANNY AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

UNCANNY AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE. One need not go to the realms of space, or time, or figures, to meet with the incompre hensible. One of the best known writers on occultism, Jacolliot, has left an account of certain things he saw daring his official sojourn in India,which, as they seem to defy explanation, may fairly be classed amongst things incomprehensible. The performer was a fakir whom he acci dentally met, and who required some per suasion before he would exhibit feats, which, he continually affirmed, were the woik of other Intelligences. On some sticks fixed upright in flowerpots were placed some leaves from a tree, with holes in each suffici ently large to make them fall to the level of the mould. Standing at a considerable dis tance, the fakir made a gesture with his hand. A slight breeze seemed to pervade the room, then the leaves quivered and gradually worked upwards on the sticks. Jacolliot placed himself between the flower pots and the operator,placed the sticks in the flo...

It was as if Death's icy hand had been laid upon him, turning his blood to ice and freezing the very marrow in bis bones. Bitter w inds rose and buffeted him roughly; weird snow men and snow women peered at him from the shadows; and great icicles rapidly forming n the ceiling seemed about to fall and crush him with their froze» wc'gut. He felt himseF slowly congealing, and slapped himself feebly ii the breast to restore his dying circulation. Frantically he buried his head in the pillow and drew the covers tight about him in the wild en deavour to shut out the horrors he saw on «very side and coax the warmth hack to bis benumbed limbs. Opening his eyes, he looked up and saw that the icicle above his head had assumed immense proportions and was hanging by the merest thread. Even while he looked it fell with an awful crash and roar, striking him square in th...
