The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XXVI. "Rex v. James Gilbert. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914

The Great 'Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XXVI. "Rex v. James Gilbert. Before many hours were over the Press blazed with paragraphs relating to the arrest of Robert, Lord Monta mor, on a charge of murder. Sensa tional headings met the public eye from the boards which set forth the contents of the many newspapers. "The claimant arrested on a charge of murder," ran one. "Tragic de velopment of the Montamor Case," was the heading of another. "The Montamor arrest for a crime," was the dark lint of an evening paper. Robert, standing white, motionless, while the cab was being fetched to convey him to Bow-street, thought with a shuddering horror of Netta and his mother. He must send a tele. gram. In his first interview with his solicitor he would give no account of the substance of his defence until a telegram had been despatched. "I am detained for a time on an absurd charge, which I can absolute ly disprove," he wired to his darling. "All wi...

DAIRY PRODUCE. PROSPECTS AND PRICES. THE IRRIGATION AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914

DAIRY PRODUCE. t -------- PROSPECTS AND PRICE3. TEE IRRIGATION AREAS. Conditions throughout Victoria point to a rather bad winter for the dairying industry. From this, however, it does not follow that the price which householders will pay for butter this winter will be much higher than usual. The re t markable season in New South t Wales will be a factor limiting to a considerable extent the poseibilities I of extreme prices in Melbourne. The Western district (says the "Argus") is badly in need of im mediate rain, which, if it falls within the next week or so, might cause an increase in the supply of milk and butter. Otherwise it will be very unlikely that any increase will take place in the Supply com ing to Melbourne from that quarter until June or July. The butter now coming to Melbaurne from many factories is very poor in qua lity. Owing to the small supplies of cream in many parts of the country, farmers' cans take longer to fill, and consequently produce only very indifferent ...

GOOD FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914

GOOD FRIDAY. THE Commemoration of to-mor row has for its object one of the greatest landmarks of the world's history-perhaps the greatest - and the beginning of a new era for the race. It is true that current chron ology takes as its initial date the supposed time of the birth at Bethlehem-though in that matter it is not exact-but Christianity as a system had no organisation until after the death on Calvary. The real Anno Domini was that in which he ' suffered under Pontius iPilate, was cruicified, dead, and buried," and the event referred to in these familiar words is that which has impressed itself most deeply on the imagination of the world. It is one of the parodoxes of history that the life of what is not only an eclesiastical, but also an ethical system, a spiritual force as well as a religious cult, should spring from and be sustained by the death of its founder, more especially as that death was one of ignominy and shame. In this respect it stands alone, without precedent or...
