' Ever since the first day I saw her, I have been madly in love with Marigold. It was more bitter for me than death ?when I waa forced to believe that she was indiffer ent to me. .but this letter she sends me discloses my mistake. MieB Carleton, there are some things a man would give his all for j the soft arms of the girl he loves are amoDg them. Do you think, then, that honor alone should separate them ?' he queries, wistfully. ' I would possess my love at any co3t,' Ethel as3ure3 him ; and if he had not been too much taken up with thoughts of Marigold, he must lave seen the wild light in her eyes. 'There shall be a marriage to-night in the forest chapel, but I will be Marigold's bridegroom, for something tells me that she loves me,' he declares, passionately; adding: 'It is singular that...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 February 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN SUFFRAGE. Sir, — As I intimated in my last letter, that it was not my intention to notice any further strictures which your courteous correspondent, E. J. Bowling might feel called upon to favour me with, I must apologise for tasking your forbearance once more for the purpose of setting myself right with tlie ladies. Your veracious cor respondent will persist in wilfully pervert ing the truth by accusing me of re garding women .13 mere automatons made expressly to minister to man's pleasures and to submit uncomplainingly to whatever treatment he in his caprice may think fit to accord them. Nothing could be further from my thoughts. I consider woman God's best gift to man, provided she is womanly ; but his greatest curse when she becomes a shrew or arrogates to herself man's prerogatives. Unlike your correspondent, I deny her right to the franchise, and if it is ever conceded it will most conclusively prove that men have degenerated, become effeminate, an...

ELDEHSLIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 February 1894

ELDERSLIE This little country village is gradually emerging from its quietude through the young folks making strenuous efforts to organise a lawn tennis club in their midst. A meeting was held last Thursday, when Mr. J. Walker was voted to the chair. The chairman briefly eulogised the game, and encouraged all present to take a lively interest in the club, and endeavour to make it by honest practice one of the best in the district. The selection of a Secretary and Treasurer was the next business, the honour falling unanimously on Mr. S. Forrester and Mr. F. Pankhurst. The meeting, after discussing various small items, decided to celebrate the opening with a picnic next Saturday week, when, through the exertions of the two young officers, assisted by the young ladies, the club shall lay a foundation worthy of its name. The work of forming the court fell to Mr. C. Bendeich, who is, so far, giving the members every satisfaction. The creamery is still plying its wheels with satisfaction ...

The followers of Confucius must vamoose this ranch, else his humble, hard-working European relative will find them spreading and growing and thriving, till those to whom Australia should pro- perly belong— after the exercise of a little Chris- tianity, the use of a few revolvers, a little rum and some loathsome diseases — will fall over the edge into some unpleasant and unknown territory.

LOSTOCK. This has not been a very dry month, even from its commencement, and it has finished up with a wet week. The first few days' downpoute was not unacceptable, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing, even of rain in summer. We had we river up tor a aay or two, and no mail on Tuesday ; always a disappointment. The crops are looking well, the corn splendid. Some will be fit to pull in a few weeks, and a good yield is anticipated. We have heard of some ex cellent yields in potatoes this season, and more are being grown than is usual in the district. It is a pity the town market is already so fally supplied. We are glad to be able to give a better report as to health than last month. We have heard of no fresh eases of serious illness. There is a movement on foot to supply us and our neighbours up river and down with a resident medical man, that luxury which may any day become a necessity. Many will be glad to liear that his residence is an accomplished fact. The fruit ...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. PRACTICAL JOKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. I PRACTICAL .TOTCRS. Sib, — Not many days ago a young couple were married, and, as a natural consequence, things were humming. Some person who, no doubt, considered his humour equal to anything yet discovered in the funny line, conceived the idea of surprising the newly-married couple on the night of their first jubilee, and sent out, with the purport of course that they came from the newly-married couple, about fifty invitations. The result was that the greater number of those who received _ the bogus invites turned up very much alive and had their appetites with them. Much to the discomfiture of the couple who, of cou'se, were not prepared for the surprise party. Most surprise parties bring along their own re freshments, but this party was instigated by one who did not comply with the general rule. He might have sent half a gross of lemonade and cut out the crown — for it certainly cost him halfa crown for stamps. I believe one little innocent waited under a...

Waterloo. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894

Waterloo We would say to those about to visit Waterloo, Don't j but if you will, then go by rail and omnibus, take a field glass and a plau of the battle, climb the mound, and study the country from the top of it. Employ no guide, and resist all temptations to purchase Waterloo relics made last year, or photo nlio 1 -.'1-1 i Mi ran Vifi nbfcainpd hotli better and cheaper in Brussels. The constant flow of English visitors to the field gives to foreigners, especially the Belgians, an idea that Waterloo was the only really big battle in which British troops ever fought and beat the French, and in histories used by Belgian school children they are taught to believe that the victory was mainly owing to tho prodigies of valour shown by the Belgian . troops. In Germany the victory is claimed for the Prus sians, and no two accounts of the fight agree even as to the hour when the first shot was fired. The Germans speak of the fi™ht as the battle of St. Lambert, the French call it Mont St. Je...
