CHANDOS. A Country House Surprise. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 25 April 1912

CHANDOS. A Country House Surprise. l)uring those first few weeks of my association with Chandos in London, I was struck in a remarkable degree with the number of friends he had. And 1 alone, of them all, knew Es sex Vaughan to be nnone other than Chandon, the during thief who stole for the (un of the thing. To the world he appeared to be a fairly well-off man-about-town. His flat off Piccadilly was an expensive one, and he kept a very fine motor-car. Occasionally, at first, I wondered how far these luxuries were maintain ed by his misapproprintions; but, after all, that was his affiair, ant I cacsed to consider the matter. Ono thing in particular lay heavily on m3 conscience these days. Al though I had not plunged deeply in to a life of crime then, the influence of Chandos was so strong upon me, that In sober moments I could not fall to realise what I was bound to drift into. And in those momentd my mind reverted to two soft brown eyes that had held me spellbound in other days. In t...

THE JOYS OF HAYTIME. FROM TWO POINTS OF VIEW. I. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 25 April 1912

THE JOYS OF HAYTIME. SFROM TWO POINTS OF VIEW. I. What is sweeter than a hayfield ? Wild roses on the hedges, new-mown say, the whetting of scythes-tihese typify the goodneSs of haytlme. Haymaking is the most pleasant, fragrant work in the world. Willing ly would I put aside all other work and pleasures to go into hayfields. reap and mow, turn and toss, rake up the haycocks against the threaten Ing storm, spread again, rake again, and then mount the waggon to take the great armfuls of hay from the pitchers' pitchforks, to press them down in place, and make trim the cargo of the wheeled ship before set ting sail for the rising rick. There is more pleasure in this work than there is joy in harVest. Pretty girls come in sun-bonnets to the hay field ; there is the sweet smell of the flowers and grasses; there come children, to he buried in the hay cocks ; the horses enjoy the time. II. Thus had I been musing, speaking my thoughts aloud, as it happened, for the benefit of a dear old gent...

Oopyright. GENTLEMAN AND o BURGLAR. P ---t-- A SERIES OF EXCITING DETECTIVE STORIES. By Heath Crichton, Author of "Philip Thorn, Detective," &c PART 2. I found myself gradually being worked up to a state of nervous ag Itation as the day, or rather, the night, arrived, but on the evening before Chandos was due all thought of him was banished by an utterly unlooked-for event. Lord Kelyn made up his mind to go abroad with Lord Verard in a couple of days, and' ho presented me with a cheque for three months' salary In lieu of notice. Three months' salary and I wanted £X300 to redeem myself from jeopardy I It left me about £250 short, and it might as well have left a deficit of a million sterling. I sat up late that night thinking over the events of the last few months, and cursing the gambling spirit which had brought me to such a predica ment. I wias on the verge of it pre cipice, and all through my own folly. Moreover, as far as I could see, there was no way of avoiding the cra...

THE ADVANTAGES OF A KNOW, LEDGE OF HISTORY. The study of history should be com mended and pursued as a sacred duty.

Under its guidance we make the ac. qualntance of the great and gentle of past ages, and enlarge the circle of our admiration and affection. Their wisdom, their faith, their nobleness and actions. Familiarity with the past strengthens our feeling of the solidar Ity of thoe uman famlly,,-ldelds our sympathloet and disposes us to labor for the benefit of those that shall coms after us.
