CHAPTER XL. THE HEAD IN THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
CHAPTER XL. I THE HEAD IN THE WALL. To bo lianped at sunrise next morn ing I Over and over Dick repeated the words to himself. They throbbed unceasingly through his brain when ho sat down on the bench, with his back to tho wall, and tried to rca llzo what it all meant. At tho time of his capture he had anticipated tho worst, but somehow it was different now, with tho reality staring him in tho face. Ho had heard tho sontcnco and he shrank from death with hor ror and rebellion. He was not a coward, but it seem ed to him bitterly bard to die just when tho future had turned bright. He had not valued life very much in the past, but it was a thing to bo prized with Lucille to share it. And to lose hor ! To bo hurried out of tho world leaving behind him the woman he loved so passionately - it was a black and torturing thought. He did not utterly despair, it is true ; but at present, whilo the im . pression left by Gore's visit was so [keen, ho wns in no mood to consider I his situation fr...

CHAPTER XXXIX. THE SENTENCE OF THE COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
CHAPTER XXXIX. THE SENTENCE OP THE COUNCIL It was about two o'clock in tho morning, and tho lower town wae comparatively quiet; at intervals a distant voice, or an echoing footstep broke tho silence. This state of poace fulncss, the Russian assurod Dick, was a sure sign that Carlos had not yet been missed or discovered ; otherwiso there would have been a widespread alarm. So tho two pushed on hopofally through tho *darls and .deserted streets, aiming straight 'for tho ap proach to tho upper town. Thoy wero half way to it when a significant thing occurred. A man stoppod from a cross passage, tapped Volborth on tho shoulder, and drow .him to ono side, Dick waited in some alarm, while the two held a brief and whispered conversation. Then the stranger hur ried oit, and Volborth returned to his companion. "It is bad news," ho announced, gravely. "There is a warrant out for my arrest, and a lot of Gore's men have been quietly Boarchlng for me. They, aro in the neighbourhood now, Valentine...

There's your policy for this workaday world, and don't you forget it. If mistakes lmvo been made, endeav our to learn lessons from them, but for goodness sako do not let your mistakes interfere with tho next duty. It will not make for carelessness, so do not think so. Tho thought that If you do make a mistake it is re trievable, and you allow yourself no time to do it over again, should spur you on to do your best, and more than that no man or woman can &lt;l&lt;>. The only lime you really need to worry is when you have been half hearted over your work and have not done your best. That's the tiim> iu castigate yo»irsi'If, and to indulge in more self-...

A visitor to a Lancashire county asylum describes what ho witnessed there. Thoro was ono old gontloraan of venerable appearance, who had bo como insnno through tho shock caused by the failure of a company in which nil his fortune was invest ed, who spent all tho duy in fly ing a huge kite, in which ho seemed to take as great a delight as any ten-yonr-old boy.

A STILL TONGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
A STILL TONGUE. - T - .'.'A' still tongue makes a wise" head/ .?ays the proverb. In this chnttenii.-j .go It is difficult." to maintain a gol den silcnce. The foolish habit of talking whether one has anything to communicate or not leads hundreds .Astray. The beauty of silence may t)6 praised by philosophers, but it is seldom practised by pcoplfc ; in the religious orders ahyie it is raised to its proper position. Thero, indeed, ell religions agree, all state that vir tue grows- in silence, and power in creases with solitude. Silent meuls are the greaL aid to arresting scandal, of which there is far too much to-day. Constant chat ter about peopl-j invariably leads to exaggeration and unlcindness. If you Want, to'get on smoothly with your friends, cultivate Uie habit of silence. Petty details when talked about as sume undue proportions, whilst ovils decrease when treated with silence. It is astonishing, too, how we forget our wrongs when wo don't talk ti toout them.
Spring Balances [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
Spring Balances In a letter to the Malvern Coun cil, on Monday, the Master But cher's Association called attention to the present unsatisfactory method of administering the Weights and Measures Act, in con nection with the use of certain types 'of spring balance scales. Mr. F. Hughes, (town clerk) said that spring balance scales were not to be relied upon. . The inspector had recently tested 23 of the scales in the city of Malvern, and only eight of that number were found to be accurate. - The others showed differences of ounces. Cr. Carroll asked whether any of the scales showed against the re tailer. , The Inspector: 'Yes: several of them. Cr. Carroll said he thought some consideration should be given to re tailers using such scales. . If the inspector found, after testing scaies, that there was only a slight defect, he should allow the retailer reason able lime 1o remedy the defect. He should prosecute only in cases where the defect was not remedied after warning. It was ultimate...

What Martial Law Means. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 12 June 1914
What Martial Law Means. t J. - Tho great Duko of Wellington voiced tho duo to what happened in South Africa when ho s^id: "Martial law means no law nt nil, but tho will of tho gonornl till tho ordinary law con bo eithor establish ed or restored." JSvcn in times of peace nil civilians aro in somo sensoa subject to. mili tary law, inasmuch as for illegiti mate sale or wear of Army uni forms or medals they could bo pro ceeded against, to fray nothing of (heir obligations under tho Army Billeting Act. Hut under strict martial law a commander may order a curfew bell to ring, after which, hour any In habitant found with a light in his house or in tho streets would be liablo to arrest.

This has to bo produced to any offi cer or soldier who m...

"(JA.IU'1 01''Till!) IIANPS.

Jt is prescunicd that pur sons of refinement, will keep 'their hands 'in', a presentable; condition, und no. matter what the occupation may be,, with ordinary attention this may easily ; bo done. There is an old rhyme that would appear to divorce this cloauliness from in dustry "Better have black hands, and plenty of meat, Than ever such white ones, and no- . thing to eat." True, but ns soap is cheap and water plentiful, once tho task is completed there is no excuse for dirty hands. It iias been .said that the splendid health characteristic of the Jews is pavtljr due to tho in variable custom of washing their hnnds before eating. We cannot alter the shapo of our ...
