CHAPTER VII. A WOMAN OF WITS AND WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 18 August 1916

CHAPTER VII. A WOMAN OF WITS 'AND WILL. Except for a dim light burning in the deserted hall, and a bright light burning in a single chamber, the house "on Riverside Drive waB in dark ness half an hour before midnight that Christmas Eve. The balmy aroma of evergreen and the scent of' choice exotics yet hung about the parlours and hall, but the .festal laugh and the song of joy, and praise had given way to the silence of ap proaching midnight. Alone in the lighted chamber, EMna Bardolph was again seated at her desk. Now the door of her room had been securely closed, and her evening dress was changed for a loose robe of grey wool. As she had been seated staring at the anonymous letter two hours before, so she now was seated, with her stern white features fixed by! intense thought, and her hands tight ly clasped on the desk where the dreadful page was spread. The events of the two hours, the : discoveries and disclosures, together with her close observation of Elgin— I these had convinc...

CHAPTER VI. CONFLICTING FORCES. "Then you recogniso the deceased, Mr. Elgin !" exclaimed the detective, quickly taking up the other's impetu ous cry. Though deathly pale, Elgin had the reins well in hand over himself, nor for an instant thereafter did he lose them. "Perfectly," said he. "His name is Paul Gruber. ITe is a bachelor, and lives at Mount Vernon. He for years has been employed with me in the Ark Bank." v "Ah, we may be striking a clue," remarked Nick, 'with a curious light in his grey eyes. "In what capacity, Mr. Elgin ?" "For three years past he has been the bookkeeper." "Did you say y.ou were the cashier of that bank ?" "Assistant cashier, sir." "Have you reasons to suspect any irregularity in the business of the i bank ? Or, to put it another way, do j you think Mr. Gruber can have been ■ guilty^ of misappropriating the .funds ' of the bank ?" "I cannot think so, sir," exclaimed Elgin, on whose bloodless face Edna Bardolph's dark eyes were gravely riveted> "Unless t...

PART THREE. CHAPTER V.—(Continued.) Edna Bardolph's sinking heart rose 1 again, and hung suspended between hope and despair. "I thank you for the assurance, Mr. Elgin," said Nick,- bowing slight ly. 'I wished to spare the ladies any sudden shock. The fact is, briefly put, . a man occupying a cab, to the driver of which he had given directions to be brought to this house, has met with an accident," "Accident!" echoed Elgin, 'with knitted brows. "In what way ?" i "The evidence, indicates that the man was assualted in the carriage by an acquaintance, . 'who subsequently escaped, unsuspected of the crime at the time of his departure." "Crime! Crime!" gasped Edna, with grey lips and< aching eyes. "The man is not—dead ! " ~ "The man is dead," Nick answered, sin.ply. . • She on whom the awful horror was perhaps falling heaviest waB of the three by far the least moved out: I vrardly.

CORRESPONDENCE. Chain Letters Again. To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 18 August 1916

! CORRESPONDENCE, I Chain letters Again, tfte Editor Sir,—May I utilise your columns to warn people against that hardy perennial, the Chain LeUer, which has again made its appearance. It is accompanied by a threat of calamity and misfortune. Oi course it is not only stupid, but grossly super 1 stitious and unchristian. Recipients wiil do well to. adopt the Rishop of London's advice and put the letter ! straight into the fire, May I also take this means of acknowledging the receipt from an unknown friend in a Melbourne suburb of a ten shilling note to be devoted to any Church purpose I ^choose. Not being able to thank the anonymous giver personally, this acknowledge^ ment may ehance'to catch bis eye, This suggests to me the thought that there may be other fprmeir parishioners of Ma'don, now resi dent elsewhere and in- receipt^ of good wages, who - might like to remember their'old Church, Sunday School or Choir in a similar way. Thanking you for the hospitality of your columns.— Yours...

Australia's population is only .4, 951,073. Yet it has £87,918,204 in savings bauk deposits and' £174,979, 236 deposited in banks of issue. It is the richest country per head on the earth.

ZEPPELIN BOMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 22 August 1916

ZEPPELIN BOMBS. German aircraft have known to have dropped on the British Isles four different patterns of bombs. Kach varies in form, size, and weight, although there are only two types or classes—namely, the high explosive bomb and the incendiary bomb. Por tions of all four have been picked up in different parts of the country, and occasionally complete unexploded bombs have been discovered. Several j are reported to have been picked up in Scotland, and one at least was j safely delivered to the proper au thorities who are charged with the destruction of such dangerous mis- I siles. | Asphyxiating bombs have not been traced, and although a sulphuric smell was detected after several ex plosions, that is accounted for by I the presence of a limited and prac tically harmless (in an asphyxiating ; sense) quantity of phosphorus which the incendiary bombs contain. J I The incendiary bombs are compara I tively light missiles. They are tor j pedo shaped, have a cast-iron casing ; j and th...

The motor-cars of the Imperial family always have on the box a trumpeter, who disperses the traffic with huge blasts with no particular tunefulness about them, but plenty of noise. A five-year-old urchin was playing on a second storey balcony. He had a toy trumpet, and had^been trying for a long time to get a real good blast out of it. At length lie succeeded ! The edges of the pavement were instantly lined with loyal Berliners anxious to do their obeisance to the god in the car. A lieutenant in full regalia, who was. crossing the street as if it be longed to him, clickcd his heels and sprang Btiffly to attention in the middle of the road. There he stood, and there the folk stood for three minutes. No car appeared ! But surely that was the Imperial bla...

INVENTIVE ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 22 August 1916

INVENTIVE ITALY. A Many people seem to think that the Southern races are not endowed with the perseverance and skill which mark the successful inventor. This iB quite wrong. As a matter o,f fact. Italy can claim the lion'B share of our present-day war devices. Signor Caproni, the inventor of the Italian aeroplane and controller of the -air fleet, is a recognised genius at his work, and even Germany haB had to admit the Italian machine's complete mastery over their own. The first balloon ascent in England was accomplished by an Italian, Vin cenzo Lunardi, in the September of 1784. He was the inventor of the machine. Guniberti, another Italian, first drew up the plans which subsequent ly went to form one of Britain's strongest defences—the Dreadnought. The St. Gothard Tunnel is yet an other example of their engineering and inventive skill. The railroad is over twenty-one miles long, and sure proof of the Italian engineer's extra ordinary accuracy lies in the fact that when their plans...

A little later, another M. P. referred to her as the oldest. Both gentlemen, deBpite the appar ent contradiction, spoke the truth. For, whereas Portugal is the lateBt entrant into the field of battle on the side of the Allies, England concluded a treaty with her as long ago as 1386 ; while long before the Kaiser plunged Europe into a sea of blood and mud, another treaty was drawn up between the two old fnen s, whereby, in return for certain coaling and harbour facilities, we promised to defend Portugal in case of at tlWhen the Eurpoean war broke out, our friends promptly offered to send an expeditionary corps to F1*ndcrs" The offer was accepted, but the plan could not be carried out, owing to the unprepared state of the Por guese Army.
