"Have you seen anything of Granny Banes lately ?" asked Mrs. Smith, of her neighbor, as tho twain were indulging. iu their usual morning's gossip over the back fence. "No, not ior mure tbnn n week," said tho other. "Why, do you think there's anything amis.- with Granny V* 4< Well. I hadn't seen her myself for several days, and I thought maybe she was laid up, or had gone away." " Oh, 1 don't think she'd go away without oiling someone. I daresay she's keeping to herself, nursing her old complaint. It's nearing the month of June, you know-" "And what <rf that? "Why should she keep nidoors on tliat account ?"

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 28 June 1902

OBITUARY. j The Venerable William Alacquarie Cowper, Beau of Sydney, has fallen on sleep, at the great age of 92 years. Up to the end Ms mind was clear, and lie passed within the veil consciously "looking unto Jesus!" The late Dean was a good man, a ripe Christian, a cultured gentleman, a loyal, earnest, but broad-minded ecclesi astic. He loved the Church of England, but he also loved the Presbyterian Church (as he has told us) and all Churches -which were faithful to Christ and His Gos. pel, and he was loved and trusted of all. His death creates a great blank in our publio life, for Dean Cow per was an historic figure amongst as. "He rest* from his labours, and his works do follow him." With the great Church of England in this State, and with the relatives of the late Dean we sincerely sympathise. Two of the oldest Ministers in the Presbyterian Church of N.S.W., have, within ten days of each other, passed to their rest and reward. The Rev. James Ben vie, of West Maitland, and the R...

INTER-STATE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 28 June 1902

INTER-STATE NEWS. Referring to Mr. See's statement that he would send an account to the Federal Govern- ment for £22,000 for fitting up Government House, Sydney, Sir George Turner says the only amount due to this State is £300. Sir George Turner is of opinion that under the Braddon clause the Commonwealth has the right to retain one-quarter of the Excise and Customs revenue received in all the States, without reference to the exact financial adjust- ment of each particular State.   Mr. See has informed Mr. Deakin that the annual cost of the Federal Weather Bureau in this State would at the average rate work out at £47,000, besides £10,000 for inter-State messages and £785 for clerical labour.   An inter-State conference, representative of   the shipping interests, was held at the Hotel   Australia on Saturday, to deal with the re-ad- justment of seamen's wages. As the result of the inter-State conference of   shipping ...

Sir,—Apropos of last Monday week's meeting at the Town Hall, it is, to say the least of it ratlier surprising to tind a politician in the responsible position of Mr. BL E. O'Connor, publicly associating himself with the present artificial and ridiculous attempt to rouse an j Australian crusade in the dead and discredited cause of Home Rule for Ireland, the cause wluch reduced the Liberal party in England to its present ktate of almost hopeless decrepitude, and which lias been openly abandoned by Lord Rosberv, the oiily Liberal leader whose opinions earn- any weight, or who could rally round him a following sufficient in strength and prestige to materially affect the legislation of the United Kingdom.

The Philippines Commission. THE INIQUITIES OF PRIESTS. MONKS AND FRIARS. A CHATTER OF MODKliN HISTORY. (Abridged! from tlic Boston Citizen May 11th, W01.) TJie United States Government appointed the "Philippine Commission" to investigate the iniquities of the friars, and send evidence to Washington. Immediately a strong effort was made to keep it secret; but a motion was made in the U.S. Senate that it be printed, aud the motion was carried by a narrow majority—all Romauists voting agjiinst it. That most important document has just been issued by the U.S. Government, is numbered '•Senate Document No. 190," and signed " William McKinley, President/' Romanists rave about the books of Father Chiniquy, Dr. Fulton, Dr. White, aud other Protestant writers; but certainly none of these have circu lated more damning evidence of the corruption j of the papal priesthood, than has the United j States Senate iu this book.

In the midst of tills series of triumphs a thunderbolt fell in the Spanish Camp which doubled their alarm and consternation. Louis of Nassau was supposed to be in France, negotiating' with the Huguenots for help in money and men. Suddenly, however, there cauie the news that he had surprised and cap tured the important city of Mons. This town was the capital of Hainault, and 14 situated in a fertile, undulating and beautiful country, protected by lofty walls, and a strong citadel."

Burke, who was a Mav nootli priest and a Yicar-Genoral of tho Romish Church, said:—" The language of Dens, Ad toine, and Liguori is pure morality compared with tho oral teaching of some college profes sors in the art and practice of the confessional."

The Ten Days United Tent - Mission. •SINGLETON. Coxi»ucTEi> by Rev. I). O'Doxnell. It is doubtful whether ever in the religious history of the State there has been such a wonderful record as that which reaches us from Singleton. In the days of the past tlierp have been some remarkable instances of the wondrous converting power of God, but surely the story that comes from Singleton is amongst the most marvellous. Out of a population of •",000 no less than 5G8, over one-sixth of the total, entered the enquiry room. The letters to hand from the missioner and his assistant are fall of interesting particulars and stories of the return of the prodigal and the gathering in of the young folks. Space forbids extensive extracts but the following details will prove of interest. Singleton, June 9th. Mr. O'Donnell writes: —"A good start yesterday, 50 out at the early morning prayer meeting : 500 out in the after noon, and 700 or 800 at night. Nine seekers went into the enquiry room after tlie...
