War Pictures at Linton. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 5 June 1915

To-night (Saturday), the Walton | and Naylor Company will appear at the Parish Hall, Linton, with the latest | war pictures, which they have secured by. energetic persistency and great cost some true moving pictures of actual fighting at the front in this the very greatest war in all history. Owing to restrictions placed on pictures of battles a great risk is involved by being caught taking pic tures, for it means certain death. The only pictures allowed to pass by censors are ruins and devastations wrought by. tke invading Germans and Austriana. The compauy holds the exclusive right of the following pictures, taken from the firing line: The seige of Kio-Chow shows the attacking of the forts by British arid Japanese, the last stand of the Germans, hand to hand fighting, storming the batteries, and brilliant charges. The Dardanelles Blockade, shows the silencing of the forts by the monster super-dreadnoughts, with Queen Elizabeth's big guns in action. This picture was taken through a...

THE TREMENDOUS ADVENTURE OF MR. JONES I. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 5 June 1915

THE TREMENDOUS ADVENTURE OF MR. JONES By Paul Urquhart. I. Until lier engagement to Lord Mal travers was announced, society had almost forgotten that Lady Dorotny had ever been married before, ihen^ the newspapers, by the simple process of turning up their back files, publish ed extensively the story of her pre vious matrimonial experience. Eight years had elapsed since, at the age of seventeen, she had run awav from her father's house with Mr. Ralph Galton, the Australian adven turer, whose meteoric career on the turf has been the sensation of the. season. The marriage, which had be gun on the top-note of romance had rapidly developed into a sordid tra gedy. At the end of a brief six weeks Lady Dorothy had returned to her father's house. A fortnight later a terrible accident to a racing "special' on which Ralph Galton was known to have been travelling seemed finally to have set her free. Amidst the heap of charred remains that had once been human beings, actual identifica tion was ...

MACHINERY AND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 5 June 1915

MACHINERY AND WAR. No other great war has depended so much upon machinery as the pre sent. This fact may do much to has ten the end of the struggle, through the wear of the machine rather than the exhaustion of the man. Gun and motor-car are undergoing a test of endurance such as they have never undergone before. Every time a gun is fired some of the interior surface with the delicate rifling is wiped away with a proportionate loss in accuracy, and the larger the bore of the gun the greater the erosion. Even more severe must be the depreciation that is going on in the motor-car transport service. The motor-car is a highly developed machine, which calls for careful upkeep to maintain it in full efficiency. In ordinary commercial - service the motor-car and the automo bile receive, as a rule, considerable care and watchful maintenance. In the present war, however, the treat ment of those vehicles must in the nature of things be extremely brutal, and the depreciation must be very rapid...

CHAPTER XIII. The Carriage Window. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 5 June 1915

CHAPTER XIII. The Carriage Window. Having sent word to the doctors that they might begin their work, Rolt went out to the stable-yard, where Judd, the coachman, with a troubled face, was waiting. "Now let us have the brougham out here in the light," he ordered, and it was forthwith drawn out of the coach-house. Inspector Shrewton had now re joined his chief, and the two men be gan a careful and systematic exam ination of the carriage, both inside and out. The rugs and cushions were brought into the light and care fully scrutinised through Rolt's mag nifying glass. He then got inside and subjected the whole of the upholster ingfi and fittings to the same pro cess. Nothing, however, appeared particularly to arrest his attention. After going carefully through the whole interior of the carriage he got out and began an examination of the exterior. "It is unfortunate," he observed to Shrewton, "that the brougham should have been used since that night; but, of course, the people here don!t...

''We are going to hear from the pecple who saw him all there is to be told about this mysterious for eigner," he said. "But I'm afraid they won't give us much to go upon. You have seen the body?" "Yes, sir." "And have stopped the autopsy till I have examined it?" "Yes, sir. I have seen to that. The police surgeon and another local me dico are waiting." "They must wait.

CHAPTER XIV. Love, and a Visitor. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 5 June 1915

CHAPTER XIV. Love, and a Visitor. I Next day, the inquest on the body I of the Countess was held at the Manor House. The medical evidence was so far remarkable in that both, doctors who had made the autopsy agreed that death had been due to strangulation and not to the stab wound over the heart, which had been inflictcd after death. As the police .authorities asked for an 'adjournment in order that they might pursue their inquiries, little evidence on their behalf, other than that relating to the discovery of the ! body, was given. Rolt was present, but beyond suggesting a question o~ two, took no part in the proceedings. George Conway gave formal evi dence of identification and so forth, and after the absolute, known facts had been deposed, the coroner ad journed the inquiry for a fortnight, when it was thought the police would be ready to throw at any rate some light on the mystery. So, amid a scene of considerable bustle and excitement, for the sensa tion was how at its height, t...

Hon. the Earl Maltravers—I've, .-read all about it in the newspapers, my lady. Won't you come a little this way, please?" j In the darkness he bowed her as if s.^e was a customer towards the j lights of the motor car. For the first ! time he noticed that the road had been rudely blocked with piled stones J and two hurdles, and that lying among j the debris was the figure of the chauf- j feur. I "Lor'!" he exclaimed. "I hope he j hasn't killed your shower, my lady."

A few feet from the rear wheels ^of the car he sat down on his haunches and listened—a .very troub led and a very frightened scrap of humanity. Dimly he could see the figure of a man—a man of his own height—leaning against the door of the car, his head and shoulders thrust through the window. He was speak- j ing, and every word he uttered reach- j ed the ears of Mr. Jones, "Don't know me, my fine lady, eh? | Can't you give a guess?

CAUGHT IN THE ACT. j When his uncle Peter died suddenly at his residence, Brook House, Rains bury, without having made a will, Dick Fortescue, being his sole surviv ing relative, succeeded to Brook House and any other real or personal estate Peter Blaine might have left. Dick talked it over with the girl he was engaged to—Julia Carr—be fore going down to Rainsbury to look after his interests there. He was only a clerk in an insurance office. Julia Carr had deemed it rather a ■condescension on her part to accept him as her lover, her father being a bank cashier. "I haven't any idea, you see, what Uncle Peter was wortn," said Dick to his adored one as he sat perched on the arm of-her chair in the twilight. "He never gave me anything while he lived, apart from a cheap watch that only went when I carried it. He, seldom wrote to me. I know that he was fond of collecting coins, and that he spent a lot of money on his hobby. Well, we can sell his collection and Brook House, too, unless you...

j CHILDREN FACE DEATH FOR FRANCE. Little Lise and Jean Aid Mother in Saving Hidden Soldiers. Braved Prussian Sabres. Paris, March 25.—A French work man serving on the eastern frontier sent the following touching letter to his two little children at home at Neuilly-sur-Marne.— "My dear little Marcelle,—I want to tell you how two little ones saved the lives of twenty-eight papas. "In a lonely farm a detachment of thirty men was resting, concealed for the night in a cellar. In the kitchen two little children, Lise and Jean, were seated with their mother by the fire. Suddenly cavalry approached. " 'My children,' said the mother, 'the Prussians are coming. They will see that we have sheltered French soldiers, and they will surely want to make us say where they are. They will take them and shoot them. If we tell them a falsehood they will re venge themselves upon us. Listen: I'll speak nothing but patois to the Prussians. They will not understand a word. You must do like me, and ; whateve...

THE BOTTLE-MAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 12 June 1915

THE BOTTLE-MAKERS. How many people, when they take up a cruet bottle, or some beautifully colored article of glassware, stop to ask how it was made? In many glassworks, especially those equipped for the manufacture j of medicine bottles and similar small goods, the old-fashioned type of fur nace is still in use. This furnace con sists of a series of smelting-pots, ar ranged symmetrically in a fireproof brick casing, and heated from all sides by direct fire. These pots are charged and used successively. When the glass in any ( given pot has attained a sufficiently high temperature, each workman on the shift in turn inserts a long hollow iron rod, called a blow-pipe, into the mouth of the pot, and by a peculiar twisting motion extracts a sufficient quantity of the molten metal for the manufacture of a bottle. The glass is inserted into the neck of a mould, and the bottle is blown into the re quired shape. As the bottles are made they are placed in the "lear," or annealing stove. This ...

IV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 12 June 1915

IV. Mabel Lockhart remembered but little of what had occurred. She had a vague idea of- her horse being wounded by a bullet fired from behind a boulder, and of a mounted man riding furiously down upon her, snatching her from the earth in spite of her feeble defence, and throwing her sackwise across his saddle. Then she fainted, remembering as she lost consciousness that this was the re sult of disobedience and bravado, for she had been forbidden to stray more than five miles from the fort, and never to cross the river. When she awoke to full conscious ness she was being borne over illim itable distances at a speed that took away her breath. It was growing light, and the country about was wild in the extreme. She opened her eyes listlessly, hardly understanding; but when she saw a dark, devilish face gazing at her with wolfish ad miration, she gave a little cry of fear. "Have no fear, white woman," said the Pa than. "I do but seek a host age, perchance a wife. In the house of Khoda K...
