CHAPTER III. THE SHADOWING PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 16 January 1914

CHAPTER III. THE SHADOWING PAST. Durkin's first tangible feeling was ; a passion to lose and submerge him self in the muffling midnight silences, the silences of those outwardly quiet 1 aardens at heart so old in ?'ii and pain. ■He fell the necessity for some sud den and sweeping readjustment, and his cry for solitude was like that of the child wounded in spirit, or ituv of the wild animal sorely hurt in body.

"This whole place gets on my ner ves!" said Durkin, testily. Yes, he told himself, he was sick of it, sick of the monotony, of the idleness, of the sullen malevolence of it all. It "was gay only to the eyes; and to 'linn it would never seem gay again. "Oh, that, comes of not speaking the language, you know!" maintained the other stoutly, and, at the same time, comprehensively. He was still very young. Durkin re membered.
