The Water of Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894
The Water of Life. The bodily comforts and personal wants o primitive man are so immediately apparent to his undeveloped intelligence that it is not surprising to find that to them, and to them only, he attaches any importance whatever, and that he rapidly per sonifies the influences which increase his supplies ?or deprive him of any portions of these essentials to his existence. Thus cold, hunger, and thirst are dreaded by the savage as evil influences ever at work to his detriment, constantly stealing away his companions, and aiming their darts at himself . while fire, food, and water are equally regarded as the chief figures in his pantheon, as bene ficial deities, watching over his safety, and fight ing by his side against the demons of want and privation. In all mythologies the priority of ? existence is assigned to water— the parent of all things — the first of all things. Even tbe gods themselves were born of water, said the traditions ? of far East and farther West, for the ...

THE RYLSTONE ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894
THE RYLSTONE ELECTORATE. Sitt, — As an electorate I presume Cassilis exists only in the mind's eye of Mr. Morris, although it is used as the heading to his long letter of local jealousy anent the division and nomenclature of the Rylstone electorate. I do not intend to wade through your correspondent's ' screed,' but I wish to protest against the unneighbourly love which streams r.nrougn ms letter against ms leuow elec tors on this side of the dividing range. Mr. Morris says ' As it is we must now pull against one another ; we must fight for our rights.' That sort of stuff, sir, may be good enough for the animalish propensities, but surely where a calm judgment and cool verdict has to be given, the less fighting that is done the better. If men edu oate one another — undei their waggons while on the road ; in the fields betwixt the ' spells' at work ; through their penny newspapers, which now scatter their blessings over the land; in their homes, — and by natural common sense awaken t...

LATEST MARKET NEWS.. [Br Telegraph.] NEWCASTLE. Fridays . Quotations under this head have been brisk this week, potatoes and onions perhaps attracting most attention. The prices ruling for the former are low, and consequently the remuneration to the grower does not pay for the trouble and labour ex pended. xne nrsL snipmeac or Jforc Arlington. 1 onions reached the market this week, and the quality is indeed splendid.
