BAD TEMPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 March 1898
BAD TEMPERS. Without temper man would be but an inane mortal. But it is a terrible thing to possess a bad temper, and a more terrible thing to give way to it. Men and women who allow their tempers to rule them ruin their lives and spoil the lives of those around them — in fact, do infinite harm by often committing small, contemptible acts which amount to positive cruelty, and which in sane moments (for passionate temper is surely a form of insanity) they would not dream of doing. Through bad temper we lose the respect, confidence, trust, and goodwill of all who know us ; and we become oured and embittered with our lot and life in general through allowing the arch-fiend to enslave us.. Sometimes bad temper is inherited and clings to a person through life far more than kindred, friends, and pos sessions. Seldom can its thraldom be entirely overthrown by its unfortunate possessor, even if he be conscious of his state of bondage, which is not always the case, however patent the fact may...

Scots-Groys aro a variety largely ex hibited in a few of tho most populous cities in Scotland, viz., Glasgow, Paisley, Edinburgh, etc. They are marked much like the Plymouth Rock, but for tho quality of the meat they rank next to Dorkings. They have Due lew patrons in England, classes being rarely pro vided for them in that country. Ono enterprising Victorian fancier has made several importations of the breod to that colony, but for some yet unexplained reason, they have made but little head way, and 'although of good repute as utility fowls there is littlo prospect of them having much effect on the poultry markets of the colonies.

A TREE IN A CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 March 1898
A TREE IN A CHURCH. In the old Parish Church of Kempsey, near Worcester, a cbestnut-treemay be seen growing from the tomb of Sir Edmund Wylde, Knight of Kempsey. The tomb is built into the fubiio of the church, and out of it the chestnut-tree ijrows. In the spiing it throws out fresh leaves, and brightens up tho sombre edifice with its vernal tints. Its origin is neither shrouded in mystery nor romnnce. Many years aj;o it was tho custom of the school-children to sit in thn chancel, and one morning a teacher discovered a restless boy playing with a chestnut. He snatched it from the child and threw it behind the tomb, where it sprang up and flourished. Many attempts have been made to cut it down, but though shorn of much of its beauty, the tree hns survived every assault, aud con tinues to astonish the eyes of tourists to that part of Worcestershire.

'''He swears like n-suckingdovo ' may be taken as the positive, or the m;xt ''b't-st-i stage to swearing not at all ; ' he swears liko a trooper '' represents the comparative, inobablv founded on the renown of our famous army iu Flanders ; and ut last the superlative, hit In rto wanting, his been found in the assertion, 'Me swears like a Kussi«n policeman.' Beyond that the objurgatory metaphor cannot go— at least that is the opinion of a Yiddishcr named Moses ICristal, .tailor, who, in thu Bow County Court, Mted his former employer, Simon Grull, for 39s. us wages in lieu of notice. In giving bis evi dence Moses btcaine very excited, and burst into his native language, which be spoke very rapidly and with much gesticulation.

It is made ot light wood, richly inlaid, with a strap extending over the instep. The Muscovite shoe is hand-woven on a wooden frame, but little attention is paid to the shape of the feet. Leather is sometimes used but the sandel is generally made of silk cordage and woollen cloth. The Siamese shoe has the form of an ancient canoe, with a gondola bow and an open toe. The sole is made of wood and the upper of inlaid wood and cloth and the ex terior is elaborately ornamented in colours with gold and silver. The sandel worn by the Egyptians is com posed of a sole made by sticking together three thicknesses of leather. This is held to the foot by passing a band across the instep.

In spite of the strenuous exertions made they were unanie to cover tne distance to the harbour, and it was only on the afternoon of the second day they emerged near the estuary of the creek at the haven close to which the camp had been formed. Collins was in front carrying a portion of a kangaroo which he had shot during the day, and he was about fifty yards in advance of his comrades. The small clearing made when the store-tent was erected was entered by the young man, and as he turned his head to the left where he expected to be hailed by Beazley he stopped instantly, for the camp was gone. He could not be mistaken, for the lately felled...

The Society Belle. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 March 1898
The Society Belle. She comes of course oi 'gentle' birth, And wears a haughty air, She also wears a dress by Worth, And some one else's hair. Herculturo is but thinly spread, Her morals rather weak ; She wears dead birds upon her head, And painb upon her cheek. She screws her body in those vile Contraptions, known as stays, She suffers torment — with a smile — And keopa it up for days ! And though to vanity sho clings With strength that might surprise ono, She never does a useful thing, And seldom thinks a wiso one. . But she can smile, and she can waltz, And lie, and flirt, and long ; Yet all that's fine in her is false,. And all that's real— is wrong. — Ol/AKIOK.

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 March 1898
Notes and Comments. [By C.S.] TiurriNO tho light fantastic is not unattended with danger, especially to the mulo sex. Recently n young man — tho only son of a widowed mother who supported him — was killed in a danco by 2001bs of a fomalo form, divine fulling upon him. This happened in America, but some youths in this district might find a timely warning- in it. At another dance, also m America, a young lady drew her revolver and shot a man who had stopped on her toes. But local balls are not always without sen 30 miles from Maclean, a young gentleman had a difference of opiuion with the M.G., and tho func tionary ojected him from the room. An ordinary person would under such circumstances express his feelings by hurling challenges and highly seasoned objurgations at the M.C., or kicking the outsido of the building. But tho man in question was not au ordinary individual, and ho came to the conclusion that the proper courso to pursue was to drown him aolf. Having announced his intenti...

River Bank Erosion. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 March 1898
River Bank Erosion. Sin, — From the numerous letters on the above subject that have recently appeared, it may may be gathered that protecting or arresting the erosion of the bank at Palmer's Island and other similar places having a good beach is a very expensive undertaking. But such is not the case, as the amount of material used and.expense incurred in forming and metalling a road is ample to protect the bank from erosion and keep the river from expanding and shoaling for a much longer time than tho samo material would last on a road on which there is a fair amount of traffic, and would probably prove n permanent job and last for all time. We have ample evidence here at Palmer's Island that checking tho scouring away of the beach in all that is necessary. The idea of the powers that be is to protect the bank by facing it with stone. I have seen ii drain made in the beach by the contractors to get tho facing down, in order that the water would have a littlo longer work to do bofore...
