The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of- "The Money-Lender,'» "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc; (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. l'Jiorne's hand closed' "over the bank-note. The general public had con signed the Hasted bank robbery to the limibo of forgotten things. The police had pigeon-holed it. Only a very small portion of the money stolen, in the shape of notes concealed in Stan more's bedroom, had been recovered at the time. The police theory had been, and was, that the bulk, composed mostly of notes, bonds and securities, the greater part being more or less negotiable with caution, might after a time filter iback into circulation, protoaibly on the Continent. The race course was another recognised place for the getting rid of stolen notes. The police were pretty sure on one sub ject, whether Stanmore had invented the story of Roy Stannard to distract attention from his real confederate, or had worked the robbery single handed; when Stanmore had served hi...

The "Tsssies" Testimonial. i: On November 10, 1841, the com mittee which had boon appointed to consider what should be clone with the testimonial subscribed for by City and provincial companins and bankers, in grateful acknowledgment of a signal service rendered to the commercial world by t.lie " Times " newspaper, announced their decision to an interested public. This service afforded a very rc mtfrkable instance of the power of ihe Press. Early in 1811 the Paris correspondent of the "Times " re ceived information of an enormous scheme that was said to be form ing on the Continent to defraud l-y forgery all the influential bankers of Europe. The appearance of his let ter in the "Timos," revealing the plot caused a tremendous sensation. To follow all the inLricocics of the case and describe the results would be too tedious. Sufficient to say that an action for libel was brought against the proprietors of the "Times," and enormous expenditure was necessary in order to obtain evi denc...

" The vessel is to be used Tor a scientific investigation of the ocean depths.

OPPOSING FORCES' " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink, And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the price, And the price is low, If Lux'll give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink. Won't Shrink Woollens L«var Brother* Limited, S74n«y.

VISIT TO AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

VISIT TO AUSTRALIA Mr. E. W. Chaplin, who recently» took the long- sea voyage to Australia I for the benefit of his health, has col lated many of his experiences in the form of an interesting lecture on "Down Under and Back Again," which he delivered to the members of the Southampton Cameron Club at the Philharmonic Hall on Monday even ing (says the "Southampton Times" of December G). Mr. Chaplin acknowledged that a 13 weeks' stay in a great country like Australia made it impossible to give anything like a complete outline of the possibilities of this wonderful country. Australia is 25 times as large as the United Kingdom, nearly three-ciuarters the size of Europe, larger than the United States, and four-iifths the size of Canada. It is very rich in natural wealth, producing gokl, silver, lead, copper, and precious stones. In addition, there are vast deposits of iron ore which have been scarcely touched; but the pastoral industry, owing to the splendid climatic conditions, is per ha...
