THE LEGEND OF GLAMIS CASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
.THE LEGEND OF GLAMIS CASTLE. If the convalescent soldier who dis covered the outbreak of lire at Glamis Castle had been a little less alert, a famous mystery might have been cither ended or explained. Glamis Castle is the seat of a terrible secret which is never known to more than three people at once-the Earl o£ Strathmore, his porter, and the heir to the earldom. The heir is not initi ated into the secret until he comes of age; but it is said that its nature is so appalling that a gay and irrespon sible youth lias, been found permanent ly sobered and awe-striclcen on his twenty-first birthday in consequence ol the revelation made to him over night. One version of the legend is that the Strathmore family was cursed in the good old days when curses had power, and that the secret is the sec ret of the curse. Another version is that a monstrous creature, with, the head of a bull and the body of a man, inhabits one of the rooms in the castle, and that once a party of guests determined...
AN EXTRAORDINARY DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
AN EXTRAORDINARY DISCOVERY. The invention of the X-rays startled the world, and its use has been most valuable to medical science. Now, it seems, a new discovery has been made which will develop self-made pictures of internal organs, and prove of ines timable benefit to the nation. It is stated that the name of the inventor is James Shearer, aged 30, at present a sergeant in the R.A.M.C., and work ing at a casualty clearing station. By birth he is a Scotsman, but he receiv ed his late education in America, where lie graduated M.D., Ch.JI., at the University of Washington. He could not be given a commission, as the medical degree he holds is not one of those recognised in Great Bri tain. 'With the X-ray, in a darkened chamber, it is possible to obtain a pic ture of the bones and more solid struc tures, but by means of his discovery it is possible in broad daylight to ob tain detailed pictures of any organ of the body, brain, liver, kidneys, spleen, and to see at a glance by what gros...
The Open Column. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with opinions expressed in these columns.] PROPOSED BRASS BAND. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
The Open Column. [Wodo not necessarily identify ourselves with opinions expressed in these columns.] PROPOSED BRASS BA.ND. TO THE EDITOR SIR,-1 think Mr Jack Lewis ia de serving of some consideration for his attempt to organise a brass band in the town, but judging by the report of the meeting in your last issue, Mr Lewis got very short shift from the chairman, and was to all appearances " outed " without getting a chance to explain his attitude. From what I can gather, there is no doubt Mr Lewis was responsible for t&e attend ance of tho3t townspeople. He con vened the meeting, and in justice to him, should have been allowed to spenk. Instead of that the chairman announced that the band had been re organised, an engagement accepted, and a most important item a band master appointed. Was this fair play ? I think not. We have had a long ex perience of bandojasters in the town, who have drav?n good salaries.-paid principally by the townspeople-and when "a few tunes were desire...

CHAPTER X. An Heiress—But a Murderer's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917
CHAPTER X. An Heiress-But a Murderer's Wife. Belle opened her eyes and gazed about her. There was something strange in the atmosphere of her sur roundings; a sense of wide space and brightness everywhere, a scent of flowers came dimly to her conscious ness. She stirred and moaned, and there followed at once the rustle of cool linen; a pair of soft hands touch ed her, one hand slipped beneath her head. "Drink this," commanded a soft, but imperative voice; and something cool and acid passed the girl's lips. At once she became aware of acute pain in her head, but before her newly awaliened brain could fasten itself on this fact a slow and infinitely pleasure able drowsiness laid hold of her, find she slipped away to a darkening val- > ley where mysterious music ebbed and [ flowed like the tides of the sea. Once or twice she had come back from that vague borderline between death and life, to know a slight curios ity, but long before she had emerg ed from the strange deeps into which ...

So it seemed as though the wind swept feather, had at last been blown into a haven of peace. But such mat ters concerned: Belle not at all; whether she was a working girl from n. slum, or direct descendant of this noMc house mattered nothing. "Why doesn't that doctor come': 1 demanded Lord Claremont, pacing fev erishly up and down. "We must learn the whole truth of the matter from her lips; we must set inquiries afoot, we must--we must "We must go down on our kness and thank God for His mercies," said his wife. But their unrest was allayed by tha arrival of the doctor; a grey-faced, capable man, who wasted no time in asking sentimental questions, but ap plied himself to his task with thor ough ability. As his slim fingers moved about the poor, injured head, his eyes stra...
