Life for a Comrade. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

Life for a Comrade. It was during a hot attack io the Dardanelles, at a point where British landing-parties had gone ashore to complete the demolition of some of the forts, that a British "Tar" gave his life for a comrade. One man of the Royal Naval Division, a marine, was seen retiring, carrying one of his comrades on his hack. Shots were fired at him by the Turks, and the man tried to take cover. In an in stant he was up again, struggling with his human load, and once more shots rang out. The gallant effort was repeated several times, until the brave fellow fell not to rise again. The man whom he was carrying afterwards recovered consciousness, but does not know the name of the hero who sacrificed his life to save him. The crazy vehicle went bumping over the uneven pavement. "This is enough to drive a man to drink," groaned the passenger inside. "Yessir," said the cab-driver. "Most of the fellers that hires it think, it's good enough for that. Any p'ticular place you was wishin' t...

Miner V.C. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

Miner V.C. Although only twenty-one years of age and formerly a Durham miner, Private H. H. Robson, of the 2nd bat talion Royal Scots, has proved him self one of the greatest heroes of the war. The Royal Scots had taken part in an attack near Kemmel, between Ypres and Armentieres. Private Rob son, while in a trench, heard one of his non-commissioned officers calling for help. He at once left the trench and, finding that the sergeant had been hit in the neck, brought him in under a very heavy fire. Later, Rob son saw a very big man lying in front of the trench wounded, and again he went out, still exposed to a terrible fire, to get him into cover. The sec ond man was too h^avy for him to carry, but he put his hands under his armpits and began to help him along towards the trench. A bullet struck Robson in the right hand and went clean through it, but he continued to drag the man on until he was again hit, this time in the right thigh. The same bullet must have killed the man he was t...

A Hero's Errand. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

A Hero's Errand. Blackburn is proud of Thomas Dux bury, of the East Lancashire Regi ment, and justifiably so; for the gal lant achievement which won for him the Distinguished Conduct Medal stands out prominently among the thousands of other heroic deeds which have been performed in this war. Duxbury volunteered to con vey an important despatch for the commanding officer to a regiment seven miles away. His hazardous er rand lay across the firing line, where shells and bullets fell thickly. After traversing five and a-half miles he was badly wounded in both legs. De termined to accomplish his mission, he crawled the remainder of the journey, suffering agonising pain, and delivered his despatch. Duxbury, by the way, is the second Blackburn sol dier to win the D.G.M. • •

CHAPTER XXXI. Vaynor's Surprise. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

CHAPTER XXXI. Vaynor's Surprise. As George Conway drove back from the wood after liis discovery that the revolver was gone, it must have been with all the sensations of a condemn ed ma>n. But there was little in his face to show the condition of his mind. Nothing, indeed, beyond a certain set expression of determina tion and a look rather more preoccu pied than usual. Otherwise, he was characteristically alert, and returned the salutations of people he met with a pleasant word and smile. No one could have imagined as he drove by, smart and animated, that blood was on his hands and death in his heart. About a mile from home he over took Hubert Vaynor on foot. "Can I give you a lift, Vaynor?" he inquired, much .to the other's sur prise. "Thank you, Conway, but I am just out for a stroll," he responded, un certain whether to accept it or not. "Never mind. Jump up! I should like a talk with you," Conway insist ed pleasantly. Vaynor could not well refuse, and they drove on together. "...

The End and the Resolve. "There is not very much, more to tell," Rolt continued; "seeing that the rest of the story dates from the time when, on the discovery of the body, the Home Office took the case in hand. Up to that event, Conway, although professing some anxiety as to the missing lady's fate, had, ^vith the exception of giving formal, and not particularly urgent, notification to the police at Fulborough, been con tent to wait for the mystery to devel op itself. "The accidental find in the yew-tree must have been an unpleasant shock to him, but even then it would seem he had little .to fear, since, with the tragedy disclosed, the suggestion that he had been in any way privy to it would have appeared absolutely pre posterous.

FROM THE FIRING LINE. The Bravest Doctor. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

FROM THE FIRING LINE. The Bravest Doctor. This story stands out for cool, su perb heroism. Learning that an offi | cer wa's lying 'badly wounded in a trench 400 yards beyond the dressing station, Dr. D. C. Turnbull, a lieuten ant in the R.A.M.C., determined to bring him in. Although it meant al most certain death, to attempt to reach the officer by daylight, Dr. Turnbull took the risk and won through. Finding an operation ne cessary, he decided to remove the officer, but could not get beyond the communication trench. A heavy Ger man fire was directed at him, and all through that day he lay in the trench, compressing an artery by hand to check the bleeding. As dark ness fell, Dr. Turnbull, helped by an orderly, lifted the officer and started the perilous journey. He got his pa tient safely through, but in doing so he received a shot through the lung, from which he subsequently died.

CHAPTER XXXII. Alas! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

CHAPTER XXXII. Alas! When George Conway reached home he found Rosamund alone in a snug comer of the drawing-room. "We have all been wondering what had become of you," she said with a slight touch of reproach. He_ made a, common-place excuse for his absence, and, crossing over to her, bent down and kissed her lips. "Do you imagine I find any pleasure in being away from you?" he mur mured. "You disappear so mysteriously," she said with a happy smile of for giveness. "I should like to think it possible never to be parted from you, even for an hour," he declared, kneeling be side her chair, and putting his arm around her. "I would give up the whole world and everything it pro mises for you, to be always with you, my love." His voice was vibrating with • a passionate longincr, and something more. She had never seen him so moved. "Why should you?" she objected gently. "That is the last thing I could wish you to do." "I know. I know!" he responded, kissing her again. Then he rose from her ...

THE BOND. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

THE BOND. By Constance Enne. Tliey were very young wlieu they married; very modern and up-to-date, and they had all the happiness money could buy, being quite rich as the world goes. She was smali and fair and loved all the gaiety and sunshine and laughter she could cram into ex istence—a beautiful, wayward, very expensive butterfly wife. He was good-looking, too, well set-up, and tan ned by the sun and wind, and he ador ed her. They had planned out what they assured each other would be an ideal existence. She said she thought there were heaps of things in the marriage service that ought to have been left out. "And what, exactly, d'you mean by that?" he asked her curiously a few days before the wedding. She sat in one of the big chairs in her mother's drawing-room puffing up saucily into his face the blue rings from the cigar ette he'd just lighted for her. "Well," said she, and puckered her brow a little, "the word 'Obey,' for instance. Why should I agree to obey? You—you're not su...

SAVING THE VENUS OF MILO. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

SAVING THE VENUS OF MILO. i During the war of 1870, when the German army drew near the French capital, one of the first messages the Parisians took was to place the art treasures of .the Louvre in safety. The paintings of Raphael, Titian, Paolo Veronese, Rembrandt, and Ru bens were carefully packed and ship j ped to Brest. There they could, if necessary, have been put on ship- \ board and taken from the country, j It was not so easy to save the ; j pieces of statuary, for their weight and fragility made them difficult to handle; but the French determined that the famous Venus of Milo, at lease, should not fall into the hands of the Prussians. So they took her 'own from her pedestal and laid her in a casket carefully padded and wrapped. At night the casket was ' taken out through a secret door and . hidden secretly in the cellar of the police prefecture, at the end of a se cret passage. They walled in the casket and cleverly gave the wall an appear ance of great age and dilapidation....

THE TURKISH METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

THE TURKISH METHOD. The Turk is invariably a brave man when he is in a subordinate capacity. Directly, however, he becomes one having authority he turns to pecula tion. There is a true story of a.>Turk ish warship which, had a wooden pro peller shaft, her captain having sold the original shaft at scrap-iron prices. There is also the story, equally true, of a battleship laid down many years ago which, when nearly ready for launching, had her construction sus pended for lack of funds. A' few years later the Kaiser, in his capacity of the friend of Islam, having arrang ed a German loan, it was decided to complete the ship. But when they came to look for her no trace remain ed. Everything had been peculated! I-Iumor in his home, which is. really every man's club; jollity at his own fireside, and wit, be it ever so mild a form, is the solving of nearly all domestic trouble. A man simply cannot growl when everybody else is in glee over some funny joke; he can not scowl when he sees a s...

A Hard Case. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 July 1915

A Hard Case. The performing brown bear had es caped from the menagerie, and he roamed eagerly around the countryside in search of prey. Suddenly he espied a sweet maiden standing beside a tree, waiting for her sweetheart. Stealthily creeping up behind her the bear seized her in his tremendous paws and pressed her to him in a mighty hug. For five minutes he held her thus, and was just about to drop her life less body to the ground when he heard her murmur: "I don't think you are quite so strong as you used to be, Harry." That night a miserable bear crept back into his cage. The modern girl had broken his spirit. Mrs. Jones: Why have you taken such a dislike to that doctor? Mrs. Aston: He cured my husband's rheumatism, so that he can never tell when it is going to rain now, and last week I spoiled a brand-new hat through it! It should be the constant endeavor of every man to deserve the good opinion he has of himself. An old but clever doctor was noted for his brusque manner and old-f...

He was stationed at Nor folk when his remarkable daughter was born, and Winifred is proud of being a Dixie's land girl. The secret of her education has been the play spirit. Whatever she wa...
