Her sister-in-law never regained consciousness, and died later on. A Juror : Was she a sober woman? Witness : Well she used to take a littip in a regular way. mostly of an evening.

It was almost dinner-tiine when the Archdeacon returned to the yacht, and ho had but the briefest word with Hugh. "A very difficult case," he said, evasively. "I am quite at a loss, my clear fellow." His further pro mise to discuss ' the whole thing frankly at a later hour of the night sent the young baronet to his cabin with tho vague, l;ope of a man who relics rather uppn a friend • than upon himself. He did not tell the -worthy ecclesiastic just how intoler able the hours of waiting had been, or how difficult he had found the commonest conventions. They talked of many things at ■dinner—Jack Bowles of Freddy By water's straight and narrow ways <and the half-crowns they were cost ing him; Mat Michel of politicians and tho new taxes he was not called upon to pay ; the Archdeacon chiefly of the products of the Moselle Val ley.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 March 1914

II. It seemed an eternity to him be fore he saw the red glow abovo the funnels of the Christabel, and knew that tlio firemen were at work. He had given the order for the yacht to sail immediately Joseph answered his ring, and soon the bruit of an imme diate departure awakened the sleep ing ship. "It was just like the Governor," the men said. The skipper, a dour Scotchman, by name Macdowell, had sailed with Hugh too long that any caprice should surprise him. Meanwhile, in the saloon, the four played on unconscious of the amaz ing happening. A hissing of steam did bring Jack1 Bowles to the quar ter deck when ho was dummy; but it ■never occurred to his obtuse intelli gence that the activity aboard was unwonted, and ho reported nothing to the others. Had curiosity taken him to the cabin skylight, he would have seen Desdy and Leila at sup per below ; but he did not see them, and voices calling him to the table, he went without tidings. For his part, Hugh had fcjrgotten his friends comple...

CHAPTER IV. LELLA IS AFRAID. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 March 1914

CHAPTER IV. j LELLA IS AFRAID. I. A seaman would have helped Leila up tlie ladder, but Hugh pushed him aside almost savagely. There was a good electric light just above the gangway, and it showed him the figure of a woman wrapped in a long Shetland coat; of a child whose face could hardly be seen for. the fur cap which covered his black curls. And yet he would have known L-eila and I)esdy had the place been black as night. She had come to him—ho never doubted that she would not return. A small kit-bag was all the lug gage she carried, and he perceived that her hand trembled very much, and closed so nervously upon its handle that the seaman could hardly take it from her. When Hugh had led her to the upper deck, she stared about her with the haunted look of a woman pursued, but chiefly over towards the town of Newcastle, from which she had fled. What ho said to her he never know ; he tried to tell her that she was welcome to the ship, but it was many minutes be fore the man himself sp...

When the people ol the Commonwealth turned their atten- i tion seriously to. the matter of defence, they called Lord Kitch ener to their aid and adopted his scheme though it involved a very large outlay- Lord Kitchener's estimate has been exceeded, and it is more than doubtful whether the ends at which "his scheme aimed have oeen attained. Clearly Aus tralia cami.ot defend the Northern Territory till there i's a Tvnns-con- 1 tinental line running from the populated south to the practically ; unpeopled north; the Commission ers. appointed to inquire into the . construction of the proposed rail ' way put the cost of a broad gauge line fit £7,000,000, of a 3ft Gin line at £5.000.000.
