DURING A STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
DURING A STORM. ? Captain,' said the mate of the good ship ' Cauliflower,' while, the Btorm was at its height, ' the ship has sprung a leak, the water-tight com partments are full of water and the blessed ship is going down. What shall we do ?' The gallant skipper's face blanched, but only for one-eighth of a second rliri he lose his self-control. ' Don't waste a moment 1' he re plied. ' Prepare at once an address thanking me for my coolness and heroism in the face of deadly and overwhelming peril. Let not a boat leave the ship's side until every man and woman has signed it 1'
ATMOSPHERE OF THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
ATMOSPHERE OF THE SDH. If some oi the latest results of astronomical investigation are to be accepted, the atmosphere of the sun is 5,000 miles deep, and is composed of various gases and vapours of metals. Then, as observed through the tele scope, its surface is covered with minute white forms, apparently float ing in an ocean of greyish fluid, these being clouds, composed not ol water, but chietly ot caroon, ana it is argued that, just as the electrician uses car bon for producing the brightest of artificial lights, so the sun employs the same agent in the production of its transcendent light and heat, the sun clouds being, in fact, made up of drups of liquid carbon, which have a radiance vastly exceeding that of the well-known glow of the filament in an electric lamp.
STORY OF THE CLAIMANT. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
STORY OF THE CLAIMANT. Sir Henry Hawkins was, it is curious to hear, at one time a believer in the Claimant's bona fides, and advised Hodgman to back him. Afterwards, however, he said that he had ' found out enough to hang him,' and our author was able to save his stake. An amusing story of how the Claimant gave himself away is the following : — ' Mr. Warner, of the Welsh Harp, was. at a time, one of the rhipf backers, and used to have him out to dine with him at Hendon. But one Sunday came disillusionment. The carving-knife cut rather badly, and Mr. Warner could not coax an edge on it. ' ' Give it me,' said 'Sir Roger.' ' And the deftness with which he handled carver and steel was an eye opener for Mr. Warner, who, when their guest was absent from the room, said to his wife, ' We're done ! He's a butcher, right enough 1'
MR. GLADSTONE AND BEACONSFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
HR. GLADSTONE AND BEAC0NSFIEL1). Mr. Gladstone used to tell how Disraeli once visited at his house. When the Bulgarian atrocities debates were at their fiercest, Disraeli one night flung across the table ol the House of Commons a note to Mr. Gladstone, saying that a set of Turkish Yellow Books at the Foreign Office were defective, but that he believer! Mr. Gladstone had a perfect set, and might his secretary call on the morrow to make some extracts ? Mr. Gladstone's reply was : ' Cer tainly not ; but if you will come in person I shall be delighted to see you.' Accordingly the next morning Mr. Disraeli called, and, on his going into the library, the talk was suddenly diverted to Bulwer Lytton, and thence to political novels, and especially to Disraeli's own writings. Said Mr. Gladstone : ' I was en tranced at his brilliant talk ; the time passed with wonderful rapidity. Disraeli looked ab his watch : fully an hour had gone, and lie was bound elsewhere. So he had to part, without a wo...

The Track of the Goldseekers. [Copyright.] Story of the Australian Alps. By Paul Wiseman. CHAPTER XXIII. [ Homeward Bound. I' How do you intend getting back to Melbourne?' asked Sterling on the morning of the goldseekers' departure from the surveyor's camp. ? We have a boat near Cape Conran, and when we get there, if not picked up by ft passing vessel, we will mako our way round the coast to the Lakes,' answered Foster. I' I can sena you across country on our packhorses if you care to go that way,' was the kind reply. ' Thank you very much, but we must go to the Cape, as some valuable pro perty remains there,1 cordially replied Poster. 1 Then all I can do is put you on the east side of the stream.' After partaking of some refresh ments, the three men were crossed in a dingy, and with a good supply of provisions, started for the Cape, the direction of which wus given them. They reached- the Cape in safety. The boat was taken from its place of concealment, and everything made ready to...

Brevities. It is questionable whether the CobAr Wilcannia railway can bo rc-introduced within twolve months of its rejection. The Minister for Works has his doubts on the subject.

Besant and Rice. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
Besuut aud Rico Mr. Percy Fitzgerald, the woll knowu Dickens collector, answers a ] question which has been much specula ted upon as to the character and measure of the collaboration between Sir Walter Besantund James Bice. In ' Beady Money Mortiboy' and other novels which resulted from their nartuership, llioe. it appears, thought out the plot and construction, whilst Besant did the description, dialogue?, and characterisation. ' They met at each other's rooms,' says Mr. Fitz gerald, ' and debated the story chapter by chapter, Bice, having read his friend's daily portion of tbo work, would arrive furnished ' with many ingenious expedients for unravelling or complicating the situatiou.

A Prince Snubbed. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
A Priucc Snubbed. The young Duchess of Marlborough, who, after spending a few days by herself in Paris, joined the SV, K. Vanderbilt party at Monte Carlo recently, created an enormous sensation by snubbing the Prince of Monaco with suoh severity that even Oonsuelo's most fervent admirers feel compellod to blame her mildly. The Prince, whose yacht was detained at Marseilles by the great strike of dock hands, telegraphed to Monte Carlo, asking the lady managers to postpone the charity fair for two days, because he wished to attend the opening. Learning that tbe young Duchess had arrived, he also telegraphed her, requesting that she accept a booth and attend supper the same night aboard his yacht, the Princess Alice. The Duchess did not deign to answer personally, but sent curt regrets through her secretary. As soou as he reached Monaco the little autocrat demanded explanations through the Marohiones3 of Anglesey, a friend of both parties. Oonsuelo ansered suavely, 'Tell him that, Prin...
Anthony Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
Autliony Hope. Anthony Hope. Hawkins, who colo bratcd his thirty-eighth birthday re cently, is better known in the world us ' Autliony Hopo It was under that name that hU earlier works wcro published, and, for writing purposes, he has stuck to it ever since. This course was perhaps necessary, because the f«ni« nnnCrf. „r.»r,1ftOt rntnit.od his connection with tho Bar, to which he was 'callod' iu 1897, nnd the older sort of lawyers don't liko literary barristers. However, lo the joy of his large circle of readers, Anthony Hope is now in activo partnership with literature. In America, particularly, the author of ' The Dolly Dialogues' is very popular. In 1897 he went lecturing across the ' herring pond,' and frequently held receptions to meet his admirers. ' I am very happy to meet you,' eaid one lady. ' I've heard a good deal about you and your books,' sho continuod frankly, but I've never road any of them,' ' You have not lost anything, madamo,' replied the only Anthony.

The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
I The Passing Show. No doubt many of our readers have read with a good deal af relish the very amusing account given by Mark Twain in the ' Innocents' Abroad' of the voyaging of the ' Quaker City'— in connection with which Mr. Clemens no doubt made a olose study of 'Tho Land and The Book,' and, in addi ,.lnn. nrnhahlv drew laraelv on hta imacinn. ; tive powers. Whether this remarkable exonraion ever did take place, and whether it proved enjoyable and instructive to those taking part fn it, matters very lictle, perhaps, to us, in the Twentieth Century, but it seems, from all acoouuts, tbat the future historian, when ho comes to record the doings in connection with the inaugural and subsequent prooeediugs of the Common wealth Parlfanwat, will have to deal with an excursion whioh, although not to the Holy Land, for attractiveness, and from tho humourous point of view, may compote 'very fairly with Mark Twain's Quaker City ?hivoo. The members of tho Federal Parliament are about to visit...
AFFAIRS IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
AFFAIRS IN SOUTH AFRICA. THE war in South Africa still drags its weary length along, and from all appearances, the end is by no means yet. The Boers seem to misinterpret the leniency and kindness shown them by Britain and aro holding tenaciously to the belief that their cause will yet be cbampioncd by some European power. Lord Kitchener's opinion is that we will have to ' wear out ' the enemy. ThB Boers in the field are looking on the kindness shown their captured wires and families as an indication tbat Britain is afraid to give the slightest opportunity or cause for intervention on the part of other powers, This is apparently the latest phase of the situation, and one which is beginning to attract a considerable amount of attention, Both Leyds and Kruger are leavingtno atone unturned in tho way of attempting to secure assistance in Europe. This is patent from the fact that a great effort is being made by Boer sympathisers at present to bring about a meeting between the ex-Presiden...
