AUNTIE'S REPLY. "Watchman" Office, 35 Victoria Markets, York-street. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

AUNTIE'S REPLY. ." Watchman " Office, 35 Victoria Markets, TTnrk-Rfcreefc. Dear Estelle,—I was very glad to get your letter of the 6th instant, and to see by it that you .are.anxious to join "The Little Folks" column. I hope you will have the honour of winning some of the competition prizes offered. You seem to be very fond of pets, and I am sure when your kind father • buys you the promised pup you will take good care of it. I think Toby would be a good name for your little dog, and 1 will tell, you why. I have a friend who has a small terrier named Toby, and it is one of the cleverest little creatures I've ever seen. When its mistress tells it to shut the door, it goes at once and does her bidding; and when asked if it likes the Bight Hon. George Reid's policy it barks furiously in assent, but when asked the same question about Mr. Bartou it turns away it head and sniffs as if in disgust. These are only two of many clever things which +*"*« clever little little creature does. Now,...

BOYCOTTING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

BOYCOTTING IN AUSTRALIA. The word boycott is defined in Webster's In ternational Dictionary, thus:—"To combine against a landlord, 'tradesman, employer, or other persou to withhold social or business re lations." As most people know, the word has found its way into our language from the treat ment wliich Captain Boycott, a land agent in Mayo, Ireland, received from the Irish Land Leaguers. In the last issue of Tiie Watchman* 44 without any reference to the word and its origin, has shown how its principle is in active operation in the colony of N.S.W. against the Oddfellows, Foresters, Druids, Good Templars, Kecliabites, and all kindred societies, which have not the approval of the K.C. Insti tution. The introduction of such a principle of action into this young nation is a very serious matter-indeed, and more especially so when we consider the source from which it emulates, and the societies which it attacks, those "who have not the approval of the Church of Home." That is to say, a...

THE Watchman [?] [?] SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1902. AUSTRALIAN LOYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1902. AUSTRALIAN LOYALTY. Tub crowded gathering in our spacious Town "FTftll on Monday eveuiug was a magnificent demonstration of tlio loyalty of tlie Australian people. The officers of the A.N.A. are to be congratulated upon the success they achieved, although, as a matter of fact, the meeting would have been equally successful under any aus pices. The fact is, people were only longing for an opportunity to show that the handful of pro-Boers who have been advertising the weak ness of their cause does not in any sense repre sent the prevailing sentiment of the Australian people. Professor "Wood has our sincere sym . pathy. He has evidently made a mistake, as the best man sometimes will, and we would by no means join those who clamour for his summary dismissal from the Chnir of History in the University. The Professor evidently forgot for the time that he occupied a representative position,£and that'while he had a perfect right to voice hi6 own convictions aB a...

Shakespeare's Heroines, CORDELIA IN ACT I, FROM KING LEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

Shakespeare's Heroines, CORDELIA IN ACT I, FROM KING LEAK. By FLORENCE C. KIKKBY. Tlie character of Cordelia is most worthy of study. In almost every respect she differs from her sisters Goneril and Hegan. She vraa not impulsive, nor over ready of speech, but carefully weighed a matter before expressing her opinion on it, and her decision was then final. This trait is apparent in the king's test question, for, while he addressed her sisters, she reasoned with herself, "What shall Cordelia do." Then she mokes np her mind— " Love and be silent." From that resolution she never swerved. Cordelia loved King Lear, her father, with a deep abiding love that only such natures as hers are capable of. Yet, I think it was the manhool he had once pos sessed, and the nobility of the sane king's character, which were enshrined in her heart and memory. This respect, love, and obedi ence were given to the poor witless king as an offering to his former self. It can hardly be imagined that a woman of ...

The decorative arches fronting the choir stalls (the work of Mr. W. H.

Obiter Dicta. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

Obiter Dicta. We publish iu this issue a letter from a correspondent who states tliat he is a subscriber to the capital fund of "The Watchman," and who deals with the policy of the paper. He protests against any reference to the theatres in our columns, aud taken exception to even the indirect reference to the staging of 'Ben Hur,' which appeared in the womans* column last week. He says, at a meeting of the A.P.D. Association it was. distinctly stated that the paper would hare nothing to (lo with horse racing, gambling, or the theatres. We do not* know who made this statement, but we do know that the editor will not take his instructions from stray speeches made iu any meeting, and if any man was foolish enough to associate theatres and plays, good as well as bad, with horse-racing and gambling, we cannot be res ponsible for his want of common sense. : " The "Watchman" is a newspaper, nud as such cannot cater exclusively for the good people who are represented by "Koorawatha."

Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselves responsible /or the view* of our correspondents.) [To the Editor of the "Watchman, j Sir,—I am a subscriber to the Capitol Fund of your paper, and am consequently greatly interested in its success.

Your first two numbers are, I tliink all that could be desired, and I sincerely trust you will nim at the maintenance of the liigli standard you have set for the "Watcilxlax. There is, however, one matter to wliich I wish to draw attention. At a meeting of the AJP.D^ Association held lately, it was distinctly stated that the paper would have nothing to do with horse-racing, gambling, or the theatres. Notwithstanding tliis, I find in the " Woman's' Column," con tributed by " Poppy," a paragrah relating to the forthcoming production of "Ben Hur" in. one of our local theatres, which, in my humble, opinion, would have bfcen more suitable.for the. | "Bulletin" or "Era."

Woman's Column. Poppy" -will be glad to receive and answer any com munications-addressed to her, cure of tha Editor, 204 Pitt-street] Deaii Moxa,—. Now is the time to display your ability with the paint brushes. One of the prettiest schemes for giving your appearance a note of smartness, is to decorate your loose collnr with a dainty design in oils. On a sailor collar of satin, say of a delicate tint of pale green, think how ! pretty a little straggling branch of peach-bloom ! would look. # * C * At a big sale of work in the old country a while ago, there were on view several sets of buttons, made of satin, embroidered in filoselle, and moucted on tailor's canvas. They were the works of a dear old body,—a widowls mite, in fact—and it must have been a great pleasure to her to see her pretty work sell as soon as they were seen. She took orders for more, many ladies being glad to have their own designs and colorings made up to har monize with certain costumes. Now that the general tast...

Commercial. The Watchman Office, Thursday Evening. WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

Commercial. The Watchman Office, Thursday Evening. WHEAT. New*' South Wales is now in a position to export large quantities of wheat beyond the State, in addition to providing for her own internal requirements. But it will take year to settle doira to a proper system for handling the large and increasing surplus available for export. Last season several local firms made an attempt to take up this business, but owing to want of experience and capital, principally the latter, no success accompanied their efforts, and this year most of them are conspicuous by their absence from the trade. It has been left to two or three Adelaide and Melbourne firms, who have for years been handling wheat in large quantities, and who have opened branches in Sydney, to step in and practically seize the whole of the trade, notwithstanding the efforts made- in this direction by Sydney merchants. Early in the season these firms competed keenly on the la.q. basis for blocks of grain while yet in the ground....

The Choir Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

The Choir Gallery. The Musical Herald aoiiie time ago gave an interesting description of the organization of the Church Choir at the Brooklyn Baptist Temple, which may be of interest to readers of this column. The choir is in charge of Pro fessor Edward M. Bowman, A.R.C.O., a choir master of repute, with a capacity for detail and power of enthusing his members that is the great secret of his success. The Church is one of the largest in the city, and is perfect in'its equipment of organ, grand piano, music room, library and recreation rooms. The choir si compbsed of four complote choirs of 50 voices each. Each choir has an off Sunday in each month, when the members may either attend the Church and listen, or be absent. All four choirs are present when there is a fifth 8unday, but the whole choir is on vacation during July and August, the hottest months. I It will thus bo seen that many liands (or voices) make light work. One of the require- j ments is that any member who may be absen...
