Parmer Spriggins Visits the City. ' Dear, dear, what things one seeB in a great city,' remarked Farmer Spriggens to his family ; ' 1 went to tho thayter, and what do you folks think ? There was some women came to see the play that was so poor they didn't have any bunnitB on, an' they jes' sat there bareheaded an' took their deaths of cold. I never heard tell of such Bhif'less ness.' ' That warn't all,' continued the farmer, reach ing for the buckwheat cake platter, ' ther wus a feller next to me that reached over and whispered, ' hev a glass ?' 'I don't keer if I dew,' sea I — what you scowlin' at, Melindy ?— an' he handed me a double-barelled bottle, but Lord, I couldn't get a drop out of it. I tried both ends, but it wuz as dry as corn cake. I reckin he thought I looked green, but I fooled him, for I seB 'Thankee, it goeB right to the spot,' and give it back to him.'

'A. sorb of certificate,' replied Kit,' saying that I had returned the horse which I had taken by mis take. Mr. Benting gave it to me, so that I shouldn't get into trouble on that account while trying again to find my uncle's horse.' ^ The officer smiled incredulously.

' Do you think,' cried the astonished Christopher 'that if I had stolen a horse here yesterday I should be back here inquiring for you to-day ?'

MERCURY JUNIOR. LITTLE CHILDREN. / We are but little children yet, ) Children yet, ' But D8 we grow, the more we know* We hope we may be wiser yet. We wish to learn to rend and spell ; We wish to know our duty well, And every one who asks we.UtelJ, That we fkull soon be wiser yet. Perhaps we are but naughty yet. Bit every day we try to say We,U be a little better yet. We mean to mind what we are told, And, if we should be rude or bold, We'll try to mend as we grow old: We'll wish that we were better yet. , You think we are too giddy yet, Giddy yet, , ft But wait awhile, you need not smile, Perhaps you'll flee ub Bteadv yet. For though we love to run and play, ] .And many a foolish word we say, Just come again on some fine day, You'll find ub all quite steady yet.

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

SYDNEY BOTJDGXR GOSSIP. [Br Zara.] I write my gossip this week surrounded by the , fogs of ICatoomba. I ran away from the hot town last Saturday for a breath of the mountain air, and . here in the midst of thundershowers, sunshine, rain, and mists all going on at the same moment in this wonderfully organised climate I revel in the delights of a well-earned holiday. The air is so lovely after the mugginess of Sydney, walking is a pleasure, and although we cannot indulge in the excitements of bush teas, we entertain each other in our cottages or are entertained in turn by friends nf n.'nnn(- A nf-..n I ,* n « hnfnU »' -?'«= UU1.U UJHOU u L nuruaiioii uutcia.

A Royal Com mission on Labour is sitting in England, and rrpoTta o£ ita doing arc being put forth la connection with the same subject — tbat of Labour — tho Labour depart ment of the British Board of Trade has just lBeued ii report upon the agencies and methods for dealina with the unemployed. The general effect o'f what the comDilHrs anv about existing agencies i'b that they touch the fringe of the evil rather than go to its root. Energy is, moreover, wasted by isolated action which might be conserved by co-operntion. The trade societies help thi-ir ' own members, but their usefulness is con fined to fclmse ; and, furthermore, the skilled trade3 only can afford to help their own ?unemployed. Even where there are unions of nuokilied labourers, they are not blersed with surplus funds. Neither do labour bureaus help the chronically unemployed class — the crux of the problem. As to finding relief work for the unem ployed, fhe experience of labour colonies irx Germany and elsewhere ia t...

Sporting Notes and Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

Sporting Notes and Notions, i [By TriE Vagrant.] Latterly our amateur horsemen have had very little chance to, show what they were capable o£ doing in public. Mr. Oatley, tho proprietor o£ Warwick Farm, however, has taken their case in hand, and in future Trill include a race for horses ridden by amateurs in each of the programmes run off at his courEe. Te handicapping and starting at the recent meeting at Coraki afford another example of tho oft-repeated suggestion that both a starter and handicapper should be appointed for all race meetings held on the Clarence and Richmond rivers. The adoption of such a course would be more satisfactory to owners generally, who have to find a large proportion of tho sinews of war requisite to carry on racing. While horseraeing has been a sport, it has not often been the case that a mare and her son both won a race on the same day, but such a thing occurred at Green's Gunyah on Boxing Day. Lucy, who annexed the Hack Race, is the dam of Broad Cedar...

NEWS BY GABLE. ( An extraordinary and terrible freak has been perpetrated by a Russian gentleman in St. Peters burg, at a dinner given by him to a number of his friends. The host, who, it has since been ascer tained, was insane, served up a dynamite cartridge at tho dinner. The cartridge exploded, and eight persons present, including tho host himself, wore killed. A T?ni,f-nr'c Wofrrnn, frnm W™l- 1 Africa, reports that a seriona conflict, apparently tho result of an unfortunate mistake, has taken place between English and French troops. According to tho details to hand, which are somewhat meagre, tho French attacked the British camp at Warina before dawn on the 23rd December. The British replied with musketry. The firing was continued on either side, and lasted for some time, until the French withdrew. Their commander, Lieutenant Moritz, was wounded, and was conveyed to the French camp, where he died. It is stated, in explanation of the fighting, that the French mistook the Britiah ...

TAMWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 13 January 1894

TAMWORTH. Weather warm and dry, though the nights are pleasant. Bain clouds daily hover about, but no rain to speak of has fallen. A downpour would be very welcome to all. Pasture is plentiful, bufc becoming dry. The New Year was quiet, and the only sports were those at Paradise Gardens, and a cricket match on the Oval between the local team and Quirindi, which resulted in an easy victory for the Tamworth contingent. Good play was exhibited on both sides, and, notwithstanding an intensely warm day. the game was a most enjoyable one throughout. Business is rather quiet now. Mr. John Cush — the owner of Nightingale, the Tatteraall's Cup winner at the recent Bandwick meeting — on his return to Tamworth received congratulations from his many friends, and es pecially (ifc is likely) from those who backed his steed. Nightingale was also fancied by Mr. Cush himself, who is looked upon as being a straight Bportaman — a rara avis in these days. Political matters are quiet at present, and upi...
