The Advertiser SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 8 May 1897
SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1897. AFÍER dinner speeches as a role are largely discounted ia other parts of the . world, but if the after duiner speeches delivered in this colony were to be re garded as irresponsible there would be very few political utterances remaining. The ministers seem to spend the greater part of their time attending paltry cele brations followed by banquets, at which they have to speak, üo ministers in any of the colonies are so prone to pub lic flattery as ours. The most common place public buildings are formally dealt with, the foundation stone being laid and the opening ceremony being performed by a minister. One might think that the ministers had something better to do than rushing about the country for the applause of the people. These remarks are suggested by the ceremony at Ere mantle the other day. How many cere monies have been held at Fremantle, and how many bottles of champagne tere been broached there in connection with the harbor works, we cannot say, but th...

His small, ;.. - cruel, grey-blue eyes, willi their small pupils . and pale iris, ever restless, snggest the wolf. They are deep-set, with traivy lid», and covered with lowering tanby eyebrows, puckered np towards their meeting point, by two deep seams, which give bim, whether laughing orin repose, a -perpetual frown, which intensifies to an extraordinary degree when he is put ont. Then his whole ' face undergoes a complete metamorphosis. The lids of his eyes seem to become suddenly blood-shot, bis eyes glare into space, his fore head, puckers up, and his general expression demotes wild, ungovernable -ferocity, ta each a mood be might be capable of anything but bravery.

AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 8 May 1897
AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. -? To be easily described a thing mus!; hare clear outlines and unmixed colo'S. In other words it most be simple. A rent in one's clothing, a coil on one's body, a tumble while walking, the shape of a box, &c , are easily set forth in words. On the contrary the oomplex and comprehensiva things puzzle the mind and t ike the meaning from language. It was for this reason that Miss Sabina Httoheli, alluding to an exp >rience of illness, says :-" At this time there came upon me aa indescribable sensation. It wa? as if the powers of Ufe were going to fr.il me, and I should sink down without help, äs a eton J sinks in water. Yet in saying this I convey no adequate idea of the nature of that feeling. I hope I shad 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 fon od myself tired, heavy, and feeble. My appetite was poor, and after eating I had much distress at the stomach an...

FOOTBALL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 8 May 1897
FOOTBALL MEETING. A meeting of footballers was held at tbe Royal George Hotel on Wednesday evening. There was a good attendance. Mr. E. C. D. Keyser was voted to the chair, and in a short speech explained that the object of the meeting was to consider the advisableness of forming ward clubs. The Wanderers' Club had lately been formed, but ward clubs had not at the time been mentioned. He hoped they would adopt the feeling of the meeting as interest could not be maintained in clubs not representing the different wards. He then asked for proposals as to the best means of advancing the interests of football in Albany. It was proposed by Mr. Noonan that three clubs be formed so that players could join which one they chose. This motion lapsed for want of a seconder. The chairman said that the question of ward clubs must be taken into consideration or else the meeting would be of no use. Mr. West proposed, and Mr. Mead seconded, that in the opinion of the meeting the best means of advocat...

FOREIGN CABLES. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT] The Terrible Catastrophe in Paris. TWO HUNDRED LIVES LOST. HEARTRENDING SCENES. London, Wednesday 7.10 a.m. The great ladies of the Catholic Con- servative Party headed the bazaar. Five thousand people were present and it was the busiest hour in the afternoon when the fire occurred. The heat was great. The fire was first seen on the wall, the hangings near the kinematograph having taken fire. In thirty minutes the entire building had been destroyed.
