THE BUDGET SPEECH. LARGE SURPLUS. PROPOSED REDUCTION OF FOREIGN AND COLONIAL POSTAGE. London, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 4 May 1897
TSE BUDGET SPEECH. LARGE SURPLUS. PROPOSED REDUCTION OF FOREIGN AND COLONIAL POSTAGE. London, Friday. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach in his budget speech said, that the revival of trade had been well maintained. The year's receipts had been £103,050,000, and the expenditme £101,470,000. The expenses of the navy had increased by 40 per cent, in five years, and of education in the same time 43 per cent., but it was doubtful to him if the elementary system gave the best results. The national debt had been reduced by £7,584,000. The estimated receipts were £103,360,000, and the estimated expenditure £101,791,000. The gar rison at the Gape had been increased, but in no aggressive spirit. Great Britain would fulfil all her obligations at the Gape, and it was expected that other countries would do the same.

AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 4 May 1897
AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. To be easily described a thing musb hare clear outlines and unmixed colors. In othei w rds it must be simple. A rent in one's clothing, a boil on one's body, a tumble while walking, the shape of a box, &c , are easily feel forth in words. On the contrary the oomples and comprehensive things puzzle the mind and take the meaning from language. It was for this reason that Miss Sabina Mitchel), alluding toan experience of illness, says :-" At this time there came upon me aa indescribable sensation. It was as if the powers of Ufe were going to foil me, and I should sink down without help, as a stoni sinks in water. Yet in saying this I convey no adequate idea of the nature of that feeling. I hope I shall never have it again. " The illness which led to it began in the spring of 1892. My health appeared to give way all at once. I found myself tired, heavy, and feeble. My appetite was poor, and after eating I had much distress at the stomach and pain at t...
