II. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
The usual crowd was gathered be neath the low and blackened ceiling of the George. Tom Dawkins, once of Burnley, and his mate; Fisher, the big carter; Larry Ironside, of the Impos ing' manner; Benjamin Steele, who had lately done six months for wife beating; Dodd, Oram, Breedon and the rest. Some of them nodded as Jerry walked in. "Come into a fortune, Jerry?" Fisher hazarded. "Feeling a bit queer, that's all," said Jerry throatily. "Pint, miss. Fisher returned to his audience of Ironside, who was explaining French military tactics with the aid of the proprietor's map—which may, it may be noted, contained only British flags, all of which were perforating the black circle called Berlin. This was patriot ism, according to The George school of citizenship. "Listen!" said Dawkins' mate. "There's a child crying. A baby." Fisher turned to him with a grin. "When you've had as many as me and my missus you won't think that s any thing to make a song about," he com mented. "Go on, Larry. You ...
WHY FRANCE WANTS ALSACE. It Contains Minerals Worth Millions Of Pounds. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
WHY FRANCE WANTS ALSACE. It Contajns Minerals Worth Millions G~f Pounds. The Paris "Journal/' speaking of the recent French successes in Upper Al sace, says that in 1904 deposits of po tassium salts were discovered in this district. Thirteen wells have been bored which permit of an estimate to be made of the value of these deposits. The value is put at two thousand four hundred million of pounds. By taking possession of the _ Mul house district, an area of about thirty seven miles in width, France will therefore obtain possession of capital enough to cover the whole expenses of the war. "An excellent affair," adds the writ er, and if the estimate is correct he is certainly right, for no gold mine that ever was discovered can be mentioned in the same breath with this subter ranean treasure house. Mineral de posits have a deal more to do with war than is generally supposed. Many people have marvelled why Italy went to such enormous expense and trouble to conquer Tripoli. The fact is t...

It is to be hoped that the effort will be successful, as there are many fine, young fellows about Linton who ought to be already at the front. It would be a pity if any of onr youug Lintonians held back till conscription forced them to go against their will, and such a contingency is by no means improbable...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
—* ' | A very one-sided game was played on the Reserve at Linton on Saturday be tween teams representing the Scarsdale and local clubs. As usual a late start was made, Linton's goal was hardly ever in any danger, whilst Scarsdale's was continually menaced. Linton scored 5 goals 5 be'ninds, whilst the visitors, though playing all they knew up to the finish, failed to score a point. There was very little play on either side that could be called specially smart or clever, though the principal Linton players showed good concerted tactics at times. E. Sandow captained the Linton team, and Gleeson the Scarsdsle. A. Taylor acted as central umpire in a fair and im partial manner, but be does not follow the play closely enough.. To-day's fixture is Berringa v'. Linton at Berringa.
WAR PRISONERS. Rules as to Their Treatment. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
WAR PRISONERS. I * Rules as to Their. Treatment. According to reliable reports, Ger many is violating the rules formed by the leading nations at The Hague Convention, and shamefully ill-treat ing British prisoners of war. This is a crime against the law of nations, which emphatically states that war ring forces must treat their prisoners in a humane fashion. The object of internment is solely to prevent prison ers from further participation in the war, and unnecessary limitation of liberty,. unjustifiable severity, all treatment, and indignities are forbid den. The rooms in which prisoners of war are accommodated must be as healthy and clean as possible, and they should not be situated in prisons or convict establishments. Captives must be given the same scale and quality of rations, quarters, and cloth ing as the troops of the Government" which captures them, and prisoners must be paid wages for any work they may do. The latter must have no con nection with the operations of war, b...
Mortchup News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
The social held in Morfcchup school in aid of Mortchup and Chepstowe War Relief Fund proved very successful. Al though the weather was not all that could be desired, still there was a very large gathering, the outlying districts being well represented.

CHAPTER XXIX. The Story Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
CHAPTER XXIX. The Story Continued. "The lady known as Countess Mor nay," continued Rolt, "was duly in vited to make one of the party stay ing at the Manor. House for Easter. There was nothing exceptional in that. She was a well-known figure in London society, and recognised as a friend of Mr. George Cosiway's. It seems that private business prevent ed her joining the party on the Thursday when the other guests as sembled; next day was Good Friday, an inconvenient time to travel, so it was arranged that she should travel down on the Saturday by the train reaching Fulborough at 4.16 p.m. On that morning, however, she got a let ter from Mrs. Conway, her prospect ive hostess, asking her to come by a later and quicker train, which arrived at 6.25. That alteration, was no doubt prompted by Mr. George Conway, in asmuch as in coming by that train she would arrive at Temple Westford after dark; an all-important consider ation. "That being settled, Mr. Conway must have laid his plans and made...

The programme will be concluded to day (Saturday), and chief interest will centre in the Grand National Steeple chase over three miles. ;fTabing Booligal 12.0., El Progresso 13.12., Tinto 11.9., and Anacrion 10.11. to supply the winner, I will place Tinto 1st., El Progresso 2nd., and Booligal 3rd. - The Minister for Agriculture (Mr W. Hutchinson) expressed the opinion on Thursday that there was no exaggera tion in the statement of retailers that there was existent a famine in stock food. The Minister quoted the census taken by the Price of Goods Board as an endorsement of the statement. Mr Hutchinson contended that no returns had been asked for or forwarded in cases where less than five tons of hay and straw or less than 100 bushels of oats or maize were in theliands of any h...
WORLD'S OLDEST NEWSPAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
WORLD'S OLDEST NEWSPAPER. In China in 1895 there were only nineteen native newspapers. To-day there are nearly 3000. But though- the number of newspapers in China has until late years been very limited, the Empire has always been able to boast that it possesses the oldest newspaper in the world, the "Kin Bo," or "Metropolitan Reporter," usu ally termed the "Peking Gazette," I which has appeared regularly for more than 1000 years. It is publish ed with the special object of. supply ing the people with news as to the acts of Government, Imperial decrees, reports from provincial Governors General, promotions and removals in the Government service, the result of official examinations, and the like.

WHEN A FELLER IS OUT OF A JOB. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
WHEN A FELLER IS OUT OF A JOB. All nature is sick from her. heels to her hair Weil a feller is out of a job. She is all out of kilter an1 out of repair Wen a feller is out of a job. Ain't no juice in the earth an' no salt in the sea, Ain't no ginger in life in this land of the free, An' the universe aia't what it's crack ed up to be, Wen a feller is out of a job. What's the good of blue skies an' blossomin' trees "Wen a feller is out of a job? Wen your boy has large patches on both of his knees. An' a feller is out of a job. The patches, I say, look so big to yer eye That they shet out the lan'scape an' cover the sky, An' the sun can't shine through 'em, the best it can try, Wen a feller is out of a job. Wen a man has no part in the work of the earth, Wen a feller is out of a job. He feels the whole blunder of the mistake of his birth Wen a feller is out of a job. He feels he's no share in the whole of the plan; That he's got the mitten from Nature's | own han'; That he's a rejected...
CHAPTER XXVIII. Rolt Expounds the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
CHAPTER XXVIII. Rolt Expounds the Crime. When the sound of receding wheels had been heard and had died away, all four men emerged from their hiding-places and made their way to the road in silence. The situation was too grave, the proof too terribly ab solute for casual comment; and of the ; four men, three were .by official train ing not given to unnecessary words. It was not till the party had reach ed the road and were on their way to the neighboring village that Mr. Wal lace broke the significant silence. "This is a serious and most shock ing business," he observed to Rolt, with whom he was walking a little in advance of the other pair. "Even yet I can scarcely believe or realise it. I now understand some of your mys terious hints in the past. You have had an idea of the truth for some time?" "A vague suspicion from the first that one might be led to this conclu sion," Rolt answered quietly. "Al ways, let me say, coupled with a hope that I might be wrong. In spite of the man's a...
The Cloak of Darkness CHAPTER XXVII. The Ambush. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
By SIR WILLIAM MAGNAY, Author of "The Long Hand," "Paul Burden," "The Unknown Fourth," etc. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXVII. The Ambush. A few minutes later Holt was on his way to Drylaw Park, where he had a private interview with the Home Secretary. "Well, Mr. Rolt," Mr. Wallace said a little anxiously as he greeted him, "have you found your man?" "Not yet, Mr. Wallace," was the quiet answer. "But I hope to do so in a very few hours." Mr. Wallace looked rather sur prised at what, in that case, seemed a premature visit. "And you wanted to see me first?" he returned suggest ively. Rolt bowed affirmatively. "I want 3Tou, sir, to assist in the discovery of the criminal," he said coolly. The Minister was now fairly aston ished. "Me! Mr. Rolt?" he exclaimed with a rather serious laugh. "You want me to join in the hunt? What good can I do?" '.'Not exactly to join in the hunt," Rolt replied, "because there will be none. It is now merely a question of the criminal walking into a trap 1 h...
IV. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
I IV. Mrs. Ellen Fletcher prided herself that she had never stepped inside licensed premises in her life. But she smashed this record into atoms when of her own free will she enter ed the lowest-class public in the town the next evening. She advanced tru culently and turned a red face and a pair of very bright eyes to the assem bly. "Where's that precious committee?" she demanded pantingly. The committee, abashed, made noises and grunts. Mrs. Fletcher eyed them with all the scorn of virtuous womanhood. "I've just heard," she said, . . about that little bairn. You've sent her to the Workhouse because you found she wasn't quality, h'm?" Ironside cleared his throat and made a speech. "You sent her to the Workhouse when you were tired of quarrelling •over her?" added Mrs. Fletcher, brush-1 ing him aside. . ) Ironside made another speech. "So I've come in here to tell/you, to your precious faces, that you're a set of cruel, heartless wretches," al most shouted the virago. "It's cost me s...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
III. I The town received the news with 1 scandalised astonishment, and wanted I to know what the authorities were do I ing, and why such and such an. insti I tution hadn't been appealed to. A butcher who had once sent a shilling to Doctor Barnardo's Homes was very V .1 bitter about it. But tlie committee held solidly together, flourishing their deed of gift from the parent as the charter of their foster-parentage. The police took copious notes, put a "Found" notice outside the railings, reported the matter to each other, and dozed off again. The Vicar, good man, did his best to secure possession of Sybil Liza, but was rebuffed. And as the child always appeared well-dress ed and cared for, opinion gradually veered around and decided that the patrons of The George were perhaps not such a bad lot after all. True, Fisher's six children looked^raggeder than ever, and Mrs. Ironside turned her venerable stuff dress and sold her new one to. pay for the better feeding of Ironside junior, but...

ELEVEN SOLDIER SONS MOTHER'S SACRIFICE. Surely a World's Record. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 July 1915
ELEVEN SOLDIER SONS MOTHER'S SACRIFICE. Surely a World's Record. To give eleven sons to the Empire's cause is surely a record sacrifice for any mother. Yet it has been cheer fully made by Mrs. Leane, of Rose street, Prospect, Adelaide. Three dons are already at the front, and the remainder are either in camp or serv ing with the naval and military forces in Australia. Her only daughter, who resides in. Western Australia, has qualified for the St. John Ambulance Association badge, and at present is matron to" the boy scout troops of Boulder City, Western Australia, where she spends most of her spare time training the boys who will be the men and soldiers of the future. Just previous to the Adelaide "Her ald" reporter's entrance Mrs. Leane had received a telegram notifying her that her "baby" Ben had been wound ed in the fighting- in the Dardanelles, but there was no wail of anguish and no note of despair. "I know he'll do his duty," was all she said. "I want my sons, but my country w...
