Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

[By sc Melita.''] One had only to walk along the streets of Svdney to see the amount of thought and labour that has been expended for the holiday season. Per haps the efforts made in the interests of children attracted one most. At least a window of each saop was given up to the display of novelties for the younger generation. They were indeect novelties in eyery sense of the word3 so much so that they caused the most sober minded of the older ones to pause and inspect them. One cannoi help being interested in them ; they are such works of art. The most worthy of notice were the dolls and moveable animals—-the latter as you imagine are expensive. I stood in front of a window for fully a quarter of a hour watching horses prancing on their feet and bowing their heads, tigers proiruding their tongues and rolling their eyes about, and deer tossing their heads and turning their ears back. I?or the moment one could stretch the imagination and almost fancy them selves in some jungle. If th...

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

The peace of Europe is still grievously disturbed through so many European nations wishing to secure a piece, of China, and every fresh move made by the great Powers emphasizes the fact . that it is just about time Australia began to seriously clear her decks arid' prepare for. action. Minister Brunker has been " making en quiries," as usual, and he has now been officially informed that the defence authorities have 5000 rifles in stock, but the supply of ammu nitionruns to only 200 rounds per rifle. Mr. Brunker says he has double that amount, but even so it is very certain that if an attack was made upon us now our ammu nition would be exhausted in a few days, and then we would have to receive the enemy on the points j of our bayonets, or get a squad of j the sourest of our New Women i warriors to stand on shore and " shoo" the invaders off with their hideous skirts or scare them with their withering speeches, & & # That is not supremely satisfac tory,, and to height...

CHAPTER XXVI. A STRANGE BETROTHAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

OHAPTEB XXVI. A STKANQE BETROTHAL. A. couple of hours later, Guy was smoking a cigar in tk© gal lery. On the morrow the long looked-for excursion to the Titan's Shield was to come off, and, as an early hour or two in the fields had been planned, the male visitors, all ardent sportsmen, had gone to rest. Guy sat alone, his eyes half closed, his thoughts wandering to the little cottage at Lougham, and the sweet, friendless little organist there. He had done his best, during his long ride, to make up his mind and arrive at some decision. On one side stood his promise; on the other, the sweet face which had haunted him since the first moment he had seen it. There was no longer any doubt that he loved her, He would gladly have sacrificed any material considera tion to have secured her for his own; but what was he to do with his promise to his uncle? He knew that the old man had set his heart on the marriage between his daughter and nephew, and, with all he owed him, could he ask him to r...

The Storyteller. "In Love's Crucible." CHAPTER XXV—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

VWVWWVVWVWVWVWW^i/VWV^ [By Bertha m. Clay.] CHAPTER XXV—(Continued.) ' I will go,' he said, his dark eyes fixed on her face. ' Yes I will go. I will prove my love by obeyiug this cruelest command you can give me. I will go, but my love cannot; be slain or set aside so easily as I, myself, am set aside. If in the coming time you may have need of me, do not believe that my love may have waned, or doubt that I will come as quickly as I now leave you. That time may never come, but if it should, remember that a word, a look, will bring me to your side.' The last words were almost in audible by reason of his emotion . ■With a sigh he raised her hand to his lips and kissed it twice, passionately, and then was gone.

LEWIS PONDS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

LEWIS PONDS. Here we are in £he midst of the drought. Mr. Russell's rain god did not visit ua as promised. The gardens are as hard as a W.A. Band track, and the creek is as dry as the proverbial bone. Fossickers are ob taining a little of the precious metal, but it is small and hard to find. So the holidays passed over very dull. A gang of our young fellows have started for the Bogan scrub. Pulley's Bald Hill iB idle, the machinery having broken down. It will be aome time before it starts, so there is no work lor the men, Whitney Green is going on niceiy. Au hotel is being erected, and it is reported that cottages are to be erected for the miners. There are several other small com panies prospecting around the district, so we are in hopes of brighter days.

That a young; country with only four million inhabitants can gather to gether such a numerous assembly of thought, science and research, is highly creditable. The advantages of such meetings to the world are un limited.

Men of science assist one another, in this meeting together to relate the results of their individual inquiries and to help each other, by suggestion and sympathy, to keep on in their labours, even though they are disappointed, time and again, m the result of their researches. Any great discovery of science is a matter of personal interest to every one,...
