SJJÇAH»^ A SEVEN YEARS' SENTENCE. By T. C. BRIDGES. CHAPTER -XXIII.-Continued. "Fully." She paused. "But what's the good if Stort End is going to this dreadful man?" she added, sadly. "I don't believe ir¡_ this missing heir, Jill," said Jerry firmly. "If he exists at all he is probably a fraud. I stick to it that Faul is just trying it on." She gazed at him for a moment in silence, "Do you .really believe that, Jerry?" "I do, Honestly, I do." "You have some reason," she said, suddenly, and Jerry got rather red. "I'm not sure. Don't ask me anything yet, please, Jill?" Jill frowned a little. "It isn't fair to keep me in suspense, Jerry," she complained. "I can't talk yet, Jill. -Indeed, I can't. Wait a day or two and Just as soon as I know anything for certain I'll tell you." Jill was not quite pleased, yet she already knew Jerry well enough to bo. sure that she could not make him talk unless he wanted to. She out short their walk and went back to the house.

PRIVATE PICTURE SHOW ENDS IN DISASTER. Spectacular Fire at Boarding House. A private cinematograph show at Acton Court, a large boarding establishment in Gladstone Road, Highgate Hill, ended disastrously last night. The machine caught fire, and within a few minutes the building was a mass of flames, only one wing being saved. The blazing boarding house, an im- posing wooden structure of 10 rooms, standing on a commanding position on the summit of Highgate Hill, was a beacon that could be seen from all parts of Brisbane. The fire broke out with alarming suddenness, the boarders scarcely having time to escape with a few personal belong- ings. FILM STARTS FIRE. It is understood that about 9 o'clock a moving picture was being &nbsp; screened in the drawing-room, when the film jammed, and burst into flames. A moment later adjacent curtains and draperies were ignited. Desperate efforts were made to subdue the outbreak, but without avail. The South Brisbane Fire Brigade was summone...

GOLF HANDICAPS. STRICTER CONTROL. NATIONAL TITLES. The possibility Of arranging for stricter control of handicaps is be- coming a subject of interesting dis- cussions amongst golfers. The proposal is not suggested for club competitions co much as for open events. Its advocates contend that insufficient re- cognition is ßlven by club handicappers to the performances of their membeis on other courses. An Instanco quoted that of a member, who plays a round at another club, which warrants a reduction in his handicap, but in the event of no action belnï taken his generous club mark will apply the next tima he com- petes away from home. This, it is argued, would be obviated If club handicappers ¡jave due attention to the scores of their members under competition conditions at other courses, and it also Is pointed out that this control could be simply exer- cised, the standard scratch figures fixed by the golf council furnishing the infor- mation necessary for adjustments The Queensland La...
MODERN MUSIC. Lecture by Mr. W. Arlom. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 29 August 1933
MODERN MUSIC. Lecture by Mr. W. Arlom. The verdict of the future could not be forecasted, said Mr. Wilfred Arlom, of Sydney, in an addrecs" on Modern Music, given to members of the Musical Association of Queens- land last night. Mr. Arlom, who is a member of the Australian MSusical Examination Board, is visiting Bris- bane for examination purposes. He said that people were inclined to talk of modern music as if it were a sort of sporadic growth, having no re- lationship with music of the past, and likely to be short-lived, and as if its composers were a group of entitles who would be forgotten in a few years. Modern composers, with a few exceptions, were as earnest, as seri- ous-minded, and as skilled as those of past generations, and in some cases, more so. Mr. Arlom illustrated his remarks by playing a programme of modern music. Mr. Les. Edye presided and there was a good attendance.

PAPUAN NATIVE DANCES. Comments On Proposed Study. No good purpose could be served by bringing the results of the study of primitive dances before a cultured community, said Mrs. J. Williams1, J.P., State president of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, yesterday. She was commenting on a state- ment published yesterday, which re- ferred to the intention of Mr. G. Wensley-Waight, a passenger on the Strathaird, to study native dances In Papua in order to incorporate the movements in a descriptive ballet. In this ballet Mr. Wensley-Waight in- tends to show the evolution of danc- ing irom primitive type to the ultra- modern European school. Mrs "Williams suggested that such a course of action was the result of the modern liking for "something dif- ferent." "Personally," she said, r'I do not think it a good thing that the Insatiable demand of the public for novelty should always be satisfied." The trend of civilisation should be towards high ideals, continued Mrs. Williams, and to del...
