The family threads are drawing together. Ortho Penhale is home again, the war with Spain being ended. But he is a cripple, and enforced idleness stares him in the face. Naturally he returns to his old game-smuggling on a large scale.
Meanwhile, his natural son-the only heir of the Penhales, though he does not know it - is appointed lieutenant-in-charge of the Preventive Service on the coast and becomes engaged to Ortho's niece, Jennifer.

There is a good deal of talk nowadays of settling refugees in British Guiana, on the uplands where there is some prospect of their making good in agriculture. British people do not often penetrate into British Guiana's hinterland, but Gwen Richardson , who has been gold prospecting there with her husband, has a lot to say about life in the jungle, which turns out to be unexpectedly healthy and full of interest and excitement.
Gwen Richardson is the author of 'On the Diamond Trail in British Guiana'.

A commentary on the 100 metres Men's Free Style, and the 400 metres Ladies' Free Style, by Stewart MacPherson , from the Empire Pool and Sports Arena, Wembley
This is the second night of an international swimming, diving, and water-polo contest between England and Denmark at the Empire Pool, Wembley, which opened on Saturday.
Particularly interesting will be the women's event. The Danish women's team are recognised as the finest team in the world.
Schoolgirl Inge Sorensen has a breast-stroke action of pure classical beauty. Her time of 8 mini. 1.9 sees. for the 500 metres is a world record. The Danish women's relay team hold the world record for the 4 by 100 metres. The leader is Ragnhild Hveger , seventeen-year-old daughter of an engine driver. She has been hailed as the greatest woman swimmer of all time, and holds an unbroken sequence of fourteen world records for free-style swimming.
In the men's events England's chances are more promising. In addition to winning most of the races, they should also prove to be superior in diving and water-polo.
