THE 111!StIcI O! 1h IIbYClRSl I$ By FRED. M. WHITE. Author of "The Ends of Justice," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London and Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER L. A . Kind Uncle. Ralph crept towards the door. Mari on came clo' to him, her hands fum bling. nervously with the bolts and bars. Some of the bars were heavy, and Mario nfs: fearful -lest they should fall' with a clang and betray her. . Ralph stretched out his' hand and drew back a bolt. "Allow me to assist you," he said. "I am used to this kind of work." A scream rose to Marion's lips, but she suppressed it. The effort set her trembling from head to foot. Yet it seemed to her that there was no cause to be frightened, for she had never heard Ralph's voice so kind be fore. "Uncle!" she stammered, "what are you doing here?" By way of reply Ralph opened the door. He gave the sign for Marion to precede him, and then followed her out into the night. The heavy door closed behind him. "I might with ...

THE Fisher ministry has been strengthened by the creation of a Minister of Naval Affairs, and the formation of a Committee of Nation al Defence. These are proper steps, but the actual effect upon adminis tration depends upon permanent officials, just as the effect of the Constitutional Amendment Bill, if carried, will depend, upon the use made of 'them. Therefore a good deal of the alarm about taking a Referendum vote in December next is forced thunder. "Let us clear our minds of cant," was long ago recognised a necessity in order to get sound reasoning upon any sub ject, and this referendum. business is one of them. - What the. great W. T. Stead called a Lib.-Lab. Party is needed in -politics. He was the greatest Statesman journ alist since Delane, of the London Times, and has had no successor. The Press, as the Fourth Estate, has been killed by stenography, which , is a purely mechanical acquirement, but it is the only passport to jouinalism, therefore intellectual ability has bec...

DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 17 July 1915
DEBATING SOCIETY. At the last meeting the annual Magazine, edited by Mr.* W. Wil iHams, B.A., was published: The edi tonal deplored the depraved literary taste of to-day, as compared with the days of Elizabeth. Then people flocked to the plays of Shakespeare, and read his works, also Gibbon's Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire; Milton, Emerson, &c. These were root read now, and one cause of it was the magazine writings. They had not the great literary characters as in the past. To-day, they were longing and thirsting for picture shows and novel reading. An article on "A trip to Heales ville" was read by Mr. J. A. Johns; and another on "Bacchus Marsh in 1925" -was read by Mr. A. T. Oliver. The Question Box was then pro ceeded with. - 1.-Is the millionaire necessarily a social monstrosity? Cr. J. Wills at first thought he was, but as he might become one himself some day, he did not wish to "turn dog" on his own class. Millions were no use to a man un less lie properly employed ...
RECRUITING MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 17 July 1915
RECRUITING MOVEMENT. The campaigin throubihout Vic toria has been more successful than ever expected. Over one thousand men per day have been enrolled, which has brought the total for Aus tralia' up to over 100,000 men. This is very gratifying. The meeting held at Bacchus Marsh on Saturday evening last could hardly be called, a successful one, except from an attendance point of view, 4s the Mechanics' In stitute was crowded. But as the meeting was sandwiched in between tea hour and a picture show, every= thing was done in a hurry, with not much definite result. The chair was occupied by Cr. J. Wills (Shire 'President), and whilst introducing the speakers was asked ivhy he did not enlist himself. Cr. Wills took this remark up. rather too seriously, and challenged' the interjector to come on the platform, but there was no response. He then asked for his name. Still no answer. Cr. Wills then said as his honor had been challenged he would enlist himself, and expected the interjec tor to...

HOTELS, AND COUNCIL REVENUE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 17 July 1915
HOTELS: AND COUNCIL REV ENUE. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-I crave space, to assert that "Ratepayer's" interpretation of Cr. Maher's motion is, in my opinion, totally wrong. The people of Wer ribee do not care one iota what re striction is placed on hotels, but they certainly believe in the Crs. who are wide awake to any Act that may materially reduce -Shire revenue. And after all, Cr. Maher's motion condensed, reads-"That the member for Bulla be acquainted with the facts that the restrictions on hotels will affect Shire revenue." Appar ently, Crs. Maher and Beasley pre sented to the Council a common sense view of the motion, otherwise it would not have received the unan imous vote it did. If Crs., in pro tecting the, finances of the Shire, are misusing their positions, would "Ratepayer" kindly define their duties. Did the Crs. misuse their positions in bringing £200 per year in from the Metropolitan Farm, which previously did not pay a penny? No. Thank heavens Crs. are electe...

THE EMPIRE'S CALL. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 17 July 1915
THE EMPIRE'S CALL. Among those to enlist from Bac- chus Marsh this week are included - Tom. Grant and Alf. Fairbank ("Fairy"), both prominent members in local football and cricket circles. T.G. is also in the very front rank of rifle shots, and is a member of the local Rifle Club, which Club, by the way, has had to lay dormant for a year or more through the dis- loyalty (nothing less) of one man placing unnecessary obstacles in the way of the Defence Department. The Club has therefore missed the opportunity of doing some good work. Tom Grant, not to have his ardor for, rifle shooting damped, joined the City of Melbourne Rifle Club. Patrick Barry (son of Mr. John Barry, of "Lucknow") was the only recruit to come forward after last Saturday's meeting. He too, is a member of the local Rifle club, also Gun club, and has a reputation for shooting running foxes in the ranges. May he have the opportunity to use his skill in the land of the Turk. Fred Russell, chaffeur to Dr. T. B. Ryan, an...
THE MILLER'S PLAN. In the Highlands of Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
THE MILLER'S PLAN. In the Highlands of Scotland. K- worthy miller was once pained by hearing that the minister was going away for want of a support, the church having decided that it could no longer raise his salary. He called a meeting and addressed his brethren very modestly, for he was one of the poor. est among the comfortable farmers. Hie asked if the want of money were the only reason for this change, and if all were united in desiring the ser vices of the pastor, could they still keep him. There was but one voice in reply: The pastor was useful and beloved, but the flock was poor. "Well," replied the mier, "I have a plan by which I can raise his salary, without asking any of you for one dol lar, if you will allow me to take my own way to do it. I will assume the responsibility for one year. Have I . your consent?" Of course, they could not refuse this: although they express ed surprise, knowing the miller to be a poor man. The year drew to a close. The minister had been bliss...
STEEL PEN MANUFACTURE. Joseph Gillott and Steel Pens. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
STEEL PEN MANUFAGTIIN., 1oseph Gillott and Steel Pens. Joseph Gillott was a Sheffield arti! san who, soon after he came of age, was compelled by stress of poverty, Occasioned - by long depressione of trade, to leave his home and seek his fortune elsewhere. He found his way to Birmingham, and entering the town on foot, stopped for rest and refreshment at an old public-house in Dingbeth. Long after, when Gillott had become a millionaire aid was buying up valuable properties in and about the town, this bouse came into the market for sale. Gillott bought it, and when the house was being razed he directed the work men to cut out a particular square of the settle or seat running round the tap-room and send it to his home to be made into a chair, that should be handed down as an heirloom in his family. It was the first seat he had sat on in Birmingham, and the place where he had spent his last penny before pushing on into the town whose fame and wealth he was destined so largely to share a...

THE form of State Socialism, knoWn as Co-operative Commonwealth, is automatically spreading all over the World, as one result of the World War; and eventually it will oust the "dismal science," called political economy.
