CHAPTER LIII. RETRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

CHAPTER LUI. RETRIBUTION. Believing the story of Marco Madrid, Captain Rodney Randolph determined to go with him, as he had asked, to the home of the outlaw chief on the coast of Cuba. He felt, as Marco Madrid said, that if he escaped with his life in the wreck he would, having no vessel or crew, go to his home, where no one knew him as a pirate. Marco Madrid did not know, however, that the buccaneer had given up bis home in Cuba after the flight of Luline. He supposed that he still held it, and the finding of Luline, her boy, and the negress he could not com prehend, as he still supposed they were in Cuba. He made known to Rodney Ran dolph the finding of the boat at sea and whom it contained, adding : ' I guess the senora had been out in the boat with the negress and child, and been driven to sea by a storm.' ' His wife, you said ?' asked Rodney Randolph, as the two sat in the cabin of the wreck awaiting for the day to break. ¡ ' Yes, senor.' j * Her name ?' 4 He called her the Sen...

The Last of the Pirates; OB» DOOK DRIVBlir, A. Romance of the End of Ocean Outlawry.* Bv COL. PRENTISS INGRAHAM, Author of " Merle the Mutineer," &c, &c. -? CHAPTER L (CONTINUED). j THE FLIGHT. J Lui ine listened attentively to -the old man's story. She had heard every word, and it seemed to run into --fier heart like red-hot steel. She had wondered at many things, and could not understand them. Yet she had never held suspicion against her husband. She had found the kit of poor Lilla upon the schooner. There were letters in it, and papers, but she understood Spanish but imperfectly then, so could not understand all -~- that they told, though it was the diary of the poor girl. Now, as plain as daylight, the truth was revealed to her. S She looked like one who had been struck a stunning blow in the head. She rose, staggered, but recovering herself, walked away. She did not notice the old Cuban or his son. It seemed to her that she had dreamed what she had heard. Straig...

FROM OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

FROM OUR EXCHANGES-; The battle of Glencoe lasted ¿Ve hours, when the enemy was routed. Commander Symons was shot through the groin after four hours fighting, when Colonel Yule took charge. The Colonel telegraphed to England that the victory was due to Symon's skill. Colonel Yule is evidently of che truest type of sol dier. He forgot himself and re membered his wounded leader in the hour of glory. Conduct like his is an object lesson to humanity. Guardian." Quite a number pf journalists, including the editor of the " Aus tralian Star " and the Bub- editor of the " Evening News," have been appointed to the commission of the peace.

A DIAMOND RING. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

A DIAMOND RING. «. How is Cecil ? Mach better, thank yon," said Lady Essendon to her most particular friend, " and I shall be very glad when he is quite convalescent and in my own hands." I thought the nurse was such a trea . sure," said Miss Beaumont. " She bas nursed my boy devotedly, but I'm afraid he is a little too grateful." " Well, but I thought she was a person of good f»mily,and Cecil is not the eldest son." "Family-yes! But there is no position; her people are nobodies in the world ; she is nursing professionally-it is not a desir able alliance. Cecil is always romantic, and now there is the added glamour of a too pretty nurse who has had him almost entirely in her charge, and has done as much to save him as the doctor. No, Cecil is not the eldest,but he is the most brilliant of the two boys, and ought to marry a woman of pos ition." Miss Beaumont forbore to express an opinion. Kurse Margaret was still a nec essity in the house, so the risk must be run; besides, the young ...

I talked of Holmes and Schiller, Whom she didn't seem to know, I spoke of Robert Browning And hiB tangled verbal flow; I mentioned Buddha, Heine, Keats, In a careless sort of way. And she listened mest politely. But murmured " Who are they ?" I bought veats for an Ibsen matinee, She frowned : " O, what a shame ! Why didn't you get ticket« For the Yale and Harvard game?" I took her out to lunch one day. And ordered beans for two; She turned her little nose aloft And asked for oyster stew. Alas! Alas! My Boston maid. The ideal of your kind You've shattered, and my hapless heart Is broken too, I find. Beware, thea, sweet, Athenian girl. For damages I'll sue. And should I gain my precious suit, The reward I a...

MAKING A CHOICE. There ie nothing, which so damps the ardour of an hungry manas exasperating and unnecessary trifles. Therfore, when Smith picked up the bill of fare and found it printed in choice restaurant French he uttered strong words. Ue was serenity itself, how ever, when the waiter approached. " Look here, waiter," said he, " there is nothing on this bill that I care for." " We can serve^you anything you like for dinner, sir,"with an air of proud confidence. " llave you sine qua non ?" The waiter stared and answered, "No-o-o, sir." " Well, let me have some nice ignis fatuus -of course you have this ?" " No, sir, we don't serve them in Lent." " Have you any jeux d'esprit ?" " No, sir; not a single one." " This is too bad. Fou may bring some tem pus fugit." " Sorry, sir: it's just off." " Well, then, perhaps you have e plurtr.us mom ?"

WEBB'S CREEK. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

(From our own correspondent.) The contractor (Mr H. Douglas îor the road leading to Webb'f Creek Bridge, made a commence ment last week. When the road it finished it will be a boon to the place, as tho rodd formerly was simply a bridle track. Pedestrians beware ! one evening last week as Messrs. Gabriel and Mitchell were returning home in the afternoon from a friends, they came across a snake about eight feet in length lying in the roadway. Needless to say he was quickly despatched. One and all are inquiring when Mr. Ohasehng's new dealing boat is likely to be finished. Well I say sometime before 1900 It is Mr. Chaselirjg's intention to give a great " feast " to mark the launch ing. Hope he won't forget the creek people, as he always does a nice little trade up the creek. The s.B Hatte, under command of Mr. Macnamara, made her first trip up the Greek on Saturday last. One and all were pleased to see the crew and boat once again, as the crew are real jolly fellows. It is the intentio...

The Sketcher. Love and Age. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

The Skètcher. Love and Age. Mr. Thomas Harrington had come to I the conclusion that he needed change of j air and a holiday generally. The pri- i mary cause of this resolution was the ' fact that his wife was beginning to look worn and faded, and the hair that had once been all of raddy gold was showing threads of silver here and there. Not that Mr. Harrington had any in tention of incorporating his wife in this little scheme of change ; his idea was rather the enjoyment of a period of bachelorhood. The fact was that Mary had in some sort outgrown her beauty, as women are apt to do at thirty-six, and, without being cynical, one must believe the French author, who said, " The smallest wrinkle may be the grave of the greatest love." The most natural part of all this was that Mr. Harrington, who, personally, was more than forty, did not realise that he was not absolutely in the glory of youth himself ; that he had several silver hairs as well, to say nothing of a vacancy on his head wh...

FREEMAN'S REACH [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

FREEMAN'S. REACH One of the finest drives to fill in an afternoon is that from Windsor to Wil- berforce, via Freeman's Beach. It is some time since the writer had the plea- sure of this drive until Sunday last, and was therefore in a position to notice the great change that has taken place along this route during the past four or five years. Not that Nature itself is respon- sible for the great change, or that this picturesque locality has lost any of its charms, but the handiwork of man is responsible for the great transformation. During the past five years-since the common was thrown open for sale-a new settlement has sprung up on the highlands, between Mr. B. Conlan's cor- ner and that of Mr. C. Nicholl's. This scope of country, most part of which is situated on the south side of the Kurra- jong-Wilberforce Road has been cleared, and laid out with comfortable homesteads and fine orchards. It seems almost im- possible that this place could have gone ahead with the rapidity it has,...
