The Game of Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889
The Game of Life. Suppose it were perfectly certain that tho life and fortune of every one of us would, one day or other, depend on his winning or losing a game of ches-j. Don't you think that we should all consider it a primary duty to learn at least the names und the moves of tho pieces ; to have a notion of a gambit, and a keen eye for all the means of giving and getting out of check ? Do you not think that we should look with a disapprobation amounting to scorn upon the fftUier who allowed his son, or the State which allowed its members to grow up without knowing a pawn from a knight ? Yet it is very plain and elementary truth that the life, the for tune, and the happiness of every one of us, and more or less of those who are connected with us, do depend upon our knowing some thing of the rules of the game infinitely mure difficult.nud complicated than chess. It is a game which has been played for untold ages, every man aud every woman of us being one of the two playero in a gam...

Is Love as Failure? [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889

Marriage is not an ethetical but fc, social , institution. There is au old and true adage - that matches are made jn heaven, but no one has dared to argue that marriage contracts ' are signed there. If marriage is now and then a dismal and dire failure, the general cause may be found in the character of the contracting parties, not in* the institution, and any discussion of marriage brings us squarely up against the physiology of love itself, upon, which all marriage is or ought to be founded. * And xhis ought to be said at once; Lova has never changed in its impulse, Us purpose, or its unreasonableness in all the years of its tu...

Our Bone Frame Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889
Out Bone Frame Work. Nature uses at least 200 separate pieces of bone to hang a single man's muscles upon, and to encase certain parts which, like glass and pictures, require to be (_'NndIed ' with care.' Bones are not held of 'much account either by the gravedigger or tho cook ; but that is because the gravedigger and the cook are both very unscientific persons. There is a story, familiar to all schoolboys, to the effect that a countryman, visiting the museum of his country town for the first time, was shown the skeleton of an ass. He gazed with open-eyed wonder at the many separate pieces, the peculiar joints, aud the various cavities made by the articulated bones ; finally expressing his admiration in the scientific language most familiar to him self — 'Ah, sirs, wo are, fearfully and wonderfully made.' The laugh is held to have been against the countryman, because he placed the ass in the same order as him self. He was, however, a genuine Darwinian before Darwin's time. — The Ho...

Confused Ideas. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889
' Confused Ideas. Some capital illustrations of the confused ideas that children are apt to derive from their teachers and l«sson-books are given in some ' Studies of Elementary School Life,' in Lonymorie Magazirv.. A Biblical paper is instanced which commenced : ' The man OHVUU WHO UJ/ ll£LUt? U, JJULI laiUII. AJkAV I1U didn't bring up his sous to be patriarchs, coz they didn't take to it, except Joseph. He had twelve sons, and behold there was a famine in the land. In them days people lived on corn, aud behold there was a famine in the land. In them days people lived on corn, like horses do now ; not on vitlles and tea. The patriarch Jacob never eat scarcely nothin, except when there was a famine.' Another youthful essayist related that 'Samson became very sinful, for he got courtin' a young woman who was a relation of the wicked Phillistins.' From this he drew the moral that ' men should never court young women from uther coutries, except they are good. Never mind abart them bein...
