[By Bertha m. Qlax] OHAPTEB XXXI. A blast of wind sbook the gal lery an u silenced him. As it it had been the stern face" of an ac cusing angel, Maida cowered and hid her face. 4 Come, myfdear,! he said with a troubled look. "What are we doing here? Why should we weep before your mother's por trait ? If those were her eyes and lips, in very truth, they would beam and smile in very joy at your—at our happiness—for what remains of my life is bound up in you, my darling, my poor wronged wife's child! Constance, I shall never forget the night—-that night when I misjudged her so cruelly, | the night she fled from her home i —from this house. She took you with her, a wee thing that I loved oh, so dearly ! but I hardened my heart and strove to thrust you out j of it. Ay S and to my cost, nearly succeeded, until X learned that I had wronged your mother. Well we, , - Do not let us go back —all that is passed. Come dear, let us go down to dinner.' But she did not move. Half kneeling, half cro...
CHAPTER XXXII. THE EXPOSURE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898
CHAPTER XXXII. THE EXPOSUEE. How long ihey remained 'thus neither knew. A step in the gal lery recalled them to the world. It was a servant. He paused afraid to disturb them ; but as Sir Richard, turned his head inter rogatively, the man said: 'Hie Grace, the Bake of Bel daire is in the library,' ' The duke ? Let us go, child,' said Sir Richard, and with his arm linked in hers went slowly down the stairs. Maida drew back at the door, but the old man turned an imploring look on her, and still arm m arm they entered. The duke was pacing the room, and started forward as they entered. He was pale and agitated and stared at Maida with a strange troubled earnestness, as he held Sir Richard's hand ? ' Sir Richard—Constance,' he began, then stopped and mopped his forehead. ' Upon my soul I I have never had such a difficult task. ' And—and yet, Constance, I have come about a trcublesome business—a stupid piece of blun dering, which shall not go un punished. At such a time, too. My dear, I do...
Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898
A public meeting, conyened by the! Mayor m accordance with a resola-j tion passed at last Council meeting, was held iu the Masonic Hall on j Friday evening, " for the purpose of taking steps to urge upon the Raii-! way Commissioners the advisability of making Parkes the terminus for the trains running from Condobolin" The Mayor presided. About sixty gentlemen were present. The Chair man, in initiating proceedings, read > the advertisement convening the meeting, and called on Mr. McGee (the prime mover in the affair) to move the first resolution. Mr. McGee said he thought an j injustice was about to be inflicted on the people of Parkes by the Railway Commissioners, and it was their place as townsmen to show these gentlemen the injury they were about to do the town's interest. Of course, it was the Government's business how « many trains they should run, but still it was not right that they should benefit one town afc' the expense of another, twenty miles away.

raw! rains mm» If your liver is out of order, and von have studied your case at all, you will know that one of the great difficulties to be met with iB the fre quent recurrence of constipation, which brings with it headaches, sallow complexion and lack of energy. An American medical man, after giviner a great deal of study to this subject, came to the conclusion that the great trouble lay in the fact that the medi cine used was often for the effect and, not the cause, and frequently the reme dies applied were the cause of the in jurious weakness and bad after effects which followed an attack of constipa tion. He set to work, therefore, to compound a medicine which would aid the liver to secrete healthy bile, to flush out the sewerage of the body, the bowels, and the results was a pre paration now well known as Bile Beans. This great remedy aids nature, and enables the liver to do its own work, the cure thus effected being permanent until another irregularity occurs from the same cau...
Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898
[By w Ndci&odRA."] Ttfue to their electioneering pledges, some T of onr aldermen have given pwictical illustration of their desire to " do in the future as they had done in the past." Hence the " scenes" which blemished the deliberations at the Council boa^d in days gone by are being repeats d, Of course, it will be said,' human nature is human nature everywhere; and it doesn't follow that brcause a man is an alderman he si. uld act in any other way than if he •were an ordinary or garden variety of man. With all due respect to such ^iiaions, I maintain—he should. Surely, one ■ of the qualifications of an alderman is that the candidate should have arrived! at the years of discretion, :Tbat: granted,s it naturally follows that he should be old enough to observe the grains of gold set forth in the head line of his copy-book in boyhood : Command your tongue and temper." If i ithese are not commanded, the offender is aipt to get himself disliked. And then, #hen he or tfrey who of...
