Bridges was standing near the edge of the cliff surveying the fair scene in front, when he thought his companion addressed him. ' What did you say, Tom ?' he asked, turning round and facing his comrade. 'I didn't speak,' came the answer; and' for a few moments both were silent as Bridges turned to the east. ' Eh ?' he suddenly uttered, turning round. ?? 1 never opened my tnoutn. vvnars the matter with you?' protested the under-constable. * , ' I could have sworn I heard a voice. I mustn't be thoroughly awake yet,' the ' officer answered, with a low laugh. For several ? minutes the two men stood on the cliff trying to catch a glimpse of their companions, who,, by that time, must be out searching the jungle.

DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898
DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ' 'ON.: '?? . The recent death of a celebrity, Colonel Robert A. Alston, has led a correspondent into a lengthened history of the dutinguishedjiua with which he was connected. Colonel Bob (be says) balonged lo a remarkable i family, known as the Fighting Alstons of Halifax, Nova ? Scotia. It has been for half-a-century a tradition in the 'family that its men died with their boots on. For generation after generation this has proven true. The Alstons were gallant - men of gentle blood and uuusualiy laige for- tunes. They were freo livers and utterly ruck less fighters, and frequently became involved in difficulties that drained their estates with costs and forfeitures. Probably the beBt known of them, Colonel Ben Alston, had several affairs or honour, und wounded his antagonist every '?- time he went to the field. Ho was an impetuous, imperious man, and was as cool under firo as he would be in his own drawing room. Tho '^ Alstons' estates lay about Halifax, and t...

THE QUEEN'S PRIVATE ROOMS. The Queen's bedroom, more than any other room, is, in this sense, her chief treasure home. For this reason imperative orders have been given by the Queen herself that on no consi deration must her bedroom and dreBsing-rooui be shown to the public eye. In tbe top left haud corner of the White Drawing-room is a secret npring, faced by a magnificent cabinet aud surmounted by a costly mirror.

MEN WITH ONE DREAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898
MEN WITH ONE DREAD. ' It is strange,' said n doctor, ' how many men o»o finds, not otherwise detlcient in cour age, who have one particular thing they dread. ' I know one man, a doctor, who is bo afraid of being burnt to death at night thai he can hardly sleep peacefully in bis bed. At homti his bedroom is on tho ground floor, so that ho may escape upon emergency, and whun hu visits a friend's house he will not occupy a room higher up thau the second floor, and he carries a rope' ladder in his portmanteau with him. ' Another geutleman is peculiarly afraid of dogs. He says be is fond of them, but they fill him with a strange dread. Even in his dreama he tells me a mad dog often plays a prominent part. ' 'An officer in the army, a man whose courage has been very well tested, has a horror of rail way travelling, and will not, except upon oc casions when there is no getting out of it, set his foot in a ruilwuy carriage.
