Naturalist. PUMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

Naturalist. PUMAS. JMjfcHE name puma — doubtless one of fljl'lb native origin — was introduced into European literature by early writers on America. It is one of the largest feline creatures of the Columbian world. Known to Western Americans as the ' painter ' or ' panther/ it is recognised in the scientific world as 'Felis con color,' Although frequently spoken of as the ' Amerioan Lion,' chiefly on account of its colour, it rather re BembleB, in size and habitB, the leopard of ihe old world. The full prown virile puma usually measures some two score incheB, from note to tip of tail, of which measurement, v however, the elegant expanse of tail is I responsible for more than. half. The hoad is rather small compared with that of other 'cats' ; and the animal is unprovided with a inane. Its ears are lar#e and rounded. The caudal append age is massive and cylindrical. The general colour of all the upper parts and sides of an adult puma is a dirty yellow. The lower par£s of the body are...

QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

QUESTIONS. Is Boap a nutritive article of diet P ? Without committing oneself to the state ment that it is impossible for human beings to sustain existence on a soapy diet, we may safely say that soap is innutritions — highly so, in a relative if not in an absolute sense. Yet we should re member that this statement, while wholly correct, is not applicable to human beings. Among the lower animals, mice at any rate enjoy and, seemingly, thrive on soap as a food. It is familiar to housekeepers even uiti immtsat Utti ut sapu uacauuy compound is unsafe, left within the reach of mice. The little creatures look on soap ae quite a tit bit ; and their digestive organs must be able to deal with it in some way, as it is not possible for soap to be moistened with water, or dilute watery fluid, without being decomposed to a greater or less extent and manifesting new chemical activities. How do we describe beBt the celeBtial positions of the stars ? ? It was at one time the universal practice to ...

EGYPT AND THE NILE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

EGYPT AND THE NILE. Between Alexandria and Cairo the whole country iB one vast flat, inter ppersed with clumps of palms and syca mores, with dreary streams, which seem to rise and flow nowhere, with dismal mud villages on hillocks artificially raised, and often surrounded by a moat. As far as the eye can reach is waving grain. No hedgeB or wallB chequer the landscape, only black stones which serve as land marks, and heids of goats, camels or asses grazing dejectedly under the mid day sun. We are truly in a Biblical land. .^Tillage Rebeooas still go forth to draw VOIAU 1T11.U Miumac . ^6 J r vooooie uii their heads.

MIDDLE-CLASS SOCIETY IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

MIDDLfc-CLASS SOCIETY IU PARIS. I I have often mused, upon the unhappy j lot of a British policeman were oruel necessity to pnt .him down suddenly in Paris; he would find no servant girls. However, the Paris police are generally above the age which is susceptible to tbe blandishments of the fair sex. Only once did I observe a Boft-hearted police man with his head inside the door of a shop full of pretty young blanchisseuses ironing shirts and collars.

Where the elderly element prevails they play cards all the evening, whist first at two or three tables, and a round game for the mass, and fi...

A GREAT ORATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

A GREAT ORATOR. . John Redmond is SO years i,old. In figure and face he is the very antithesis of a lean and hungry Cato. . Rather below medium height, broad in the shoulder, and of ample waist,, he has an air of dignity often strangely out of keeping with his printed, {.words. His features are handsome ; heavy, but not coarse. He is said to resemble Napoleon in his later days, but it is rather of the senator of Imperial Rome that he is reminiscent. Were John ^Redmond to enter the House clad in a toga, it would hardly be noticed, so fitted-a* lie in face and figure to wear this classical -vesture. | He is the greatest orator :of'- the Irish party, possibly the greatest dratcr in the House. Healy is his superior: as a keen debater and a witty speaker, ? but John Redmond is the fine master: of felicitous phrase. His voice is powerful -and melo dious. His words are softer than butter as they fall from bis lips, no matter how bitter they may be in cold type. Mr Redmond has been twice ma...

Traveller. A JESTER'S LONELY GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

Traveller. A JESTER'S LONELY GRAVE. fN different parts of the country there may occasionally be found the graves of those who from eccentricity or otherwise have chosen to be buried apart from the rest of mankind, and an instance of this nature is afforded by the tomb of one Samuel Johnson, in the pretty village of Gawsworth, a few miles from Macclesfield. A playwright and dancing master by profession, this eccentric genius at his death desired that his body should be buried outside an ordinary place of interment, and in ful filment of his wishes a spot was chosen in the centre of a wood at Gawsworth. The grave itself is a structure of brick crowned with a massive stone, upon which may be read the following epitaph com posed by Johnson himself : — Under this stone Rest the remains of Mr. Samuel Johnson, Afterwards ennobled with tbe grander title of Lord Flame, Who, after having been in his life distinct from other men, By the eccentricities of his genius, Chose to retain tlie same a...
