Lauena' Gossip. A lady died a short time eince and be. qoeathed the whole of her fortune to the editor of a neweapper, because she had had so many hours of enjoymentfrom pernaingit columns.

Byron often received visits from a spectre, but he knew it to be a creation of the imagi nation.

She Was but a Country Girl. She was a pretty country girl, rustio but sweet and Innocent as a flower. He was an artist from the city, and a poet, and he loved the rustic maiden. It is so sweet to love in the pristine prettiness of the provinces. He hadfound it so, and this soft night in September, when the moon was touching the earth and the air with its silver fingers, he had ohosen to tell hislove and claim the heart he felt was throbbing in unison with his own. As she sat by him there in the gleoaming, with the soft breezes making harp strings of her golden hair, there was a tender musio in his heart he had never known before. " Dear one," be murmured, as he held her hand tightly in his, "I love you; love you with all the energy of my passionate nature and, here, this night, in the presence of the stars and yonder lambhent Luna, I ask you to give me that place in your young affections every true man should be given at the hand of the woman he would make his own forever."'

The friendly hands we take to-day Tomorrow may be cold as clay, And even love will pass away. Affections fade, and sorrows bend Above us as we near the end; The sweetest wordol allis-"friend!'" So let me say to-night, as we Take different routes across life's sea, You'll always find a friend in me. --T. C. Hanoon.o

HANDS ANH CHARACTER. There are seven different kinds of hands. Everybody's hand must belonz to one of theseeeeventype and each type ehowa the per THE ELZHIEN:APS OR WER TTI'E. 0onalcharacter of the owner. These sec e typeahave teehnioainames. They are called (1) the elementary or lowest type; (2) the knotty or philosophic, (3) the epatulate, (4) the square, (5) the pointed. (6) the psychic, and (7) the mixed. The elementary or lowest type of hand is one familiar to everybody, perhaps be oause it is so common. It is a broad hand, witL short, thick, stubby, awkward fingers, heavy palm and a thumb reaohing generally to the root of the first finger. This hand merely indicates animal life, such as is found in the low oames Hindoo, and the lower order of all hu. manity. A man poseessine such a hand would be one of brutal passions and coarse ideas, quite capable of committing a murder by violence, but ordinarily cowardl both in thoughtand action.

THE BRITISH IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894

THE BRITISH IN SOUTH AFRICA. A recent cable reported Mr Cecil RhodeWs expression of opinion on Mr f. Labouchere, whom he called a "cynical sybarite." Mr Labouebere's harrying of the Charterd Company resulted in a " scene" in the House of Commons on a motion for adjournment a few weeks ago, which is thus reported : Mr Barton said: The House will re member that yesterday the hen. member for Northampton asked me a question in refer. once to information about the con dition of the Matabele wounded in the engagements with the company's forces. I have now received a communioation from the company, and I think that, in justice to them, the House would desire me to read the material portions of that telegram. They say, speaking with the authority of the British South Africa Company-(Mr La. bouchere : Who are they ?)-The British South Africa Company in London have sent this telegram, which was received from the company at the Cape. They say that the information contained is supplied by Capta...

A Ridge of Corn. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894

A Ridge of Corn. With heart grown weary of the heat, And hungry for the breath Of field and farm, with eager feet I trod the pavement dry as death Through city streets where vice is born And sudden, to ! a ridge of corn. Above the dingy roofs it stood, A dome of tossing, tangled spearn, Dark, cool and sweet a. any wood, Its silken gleam and plumed ears Laughed on me through the haze of morn, The tranguil presence of the corn,. Upon the salt wind from the sea, Borne westward swift as dreams Of boyhood are, I seemed to be Once more a part of sounds and gleams Thrown on me by the winds of morn Amid the rustling rows of corn. I bared my head, and on me fell The old, wild wizardry again Of leaf and sky, the moving speli Of boyhaod's easy joy or paem, When pumpkin's tromp wee Retried's born Echoing down the walls of corn. I saw the field (as trackless then As wood to Daniel Boone) Wherein we hunted wolves and men, And ringed and twanged the green baseoon, Not blither Robin Hood a merry ho...

Attempt to Bribe a Government Official. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894

Attempt to Bribe a Government Official. -0 Mr Bomanjee Cnrsetjee; one of the pro. prietors of the Sorab Mills, llombey, has (reports' the "Daily 1News ") been convicted of attempting to bribe a Government official under very remarkable oiroamstanoee. It seems that the Sorab Mills bad a eon tract with the Ordnanea Department for the supply of " jhools "-that s, of cavalry horsecloths, and that the military authorities rejected the goods supplied on the ground that they were 'not of the proper weight. The proprietors of the milla protested that the contract did not prescribe, the weight deo. mended, and, further, that such a weight would entail at the stipulated price a heavy loss on the manufacture. This was the dispute under inquiry when one day Mr Bomanjee Curietjee went to the house of Mr Dyer, an assistant overseer in :he department, whose duty it was to report on the matter, and privately handed to Mr Dyer s wife an envelope containing live ten. tepee notes, wl4ch be requested h...

THE: WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894

THE: WIDE WORLD. Though nothing has yet been dfally deter mined, it seems more than likely that teams from South Africa and P1'hladelphba will be seeu on our cricket fields next summer (says the London "Daily News.") Both will be welcome, but it would be better if it could be arranged that one eleven should. come next yearand theother in 1895. Neither aspires to meet the full strength of England, but both wish to play good class cricket, and with the preseure of county matches there may be a difficulty in arranging saltable programmes for them. Some definte in formation will be anxiously awaited both from the Cape and Philadelphia within the next: few days, the meeting of county secretaries, to arrange nextseason's fixtures, being held on Tuesday next at Lord's. Unless the countlesapprove, it will, of course, be folly to attempt to carry out the proposed plans. The South African players would seem to have the prior claim. Their tour has been talked of more or less ever since Mr Walt...

Princess Elizabeth. I now hear that the idea existed, and was much favoured by the Emperor, but the young Princess frustrated these plans. More than a year ago she becan to look ap provingly upon a handsome young lieu tenant, Baron S. The young officer began by 'ridmg past. her.windows a couple ofcimesa dayo then he obtained a room with windowsfacing Prince Leopold's palace. In the winter, at court balls, the Lieutenant danced oftener than any other with the Princess, and in the spring lawn tennis brought them more together still.

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. The Lord Chamberlain hes decided that the comic clergyman in the piece A Gaiety Girl at the Prince of Walese Theatre, London, must be cut out. The Pall Mallpaper states that this action is in consequence of the re presentations of a certain lady of high degree to the Lord Chamberlain. The clergyman's part Is now to be altered to that of a doctor. This is the third instance in London lately of the licenser of plays having passed matters which he was compelled snbsequently to have amended. Mr Laurence Castley who, it was men tioned a week or so ago, intends devoting himself In future to the lyric stage, was to be given a matinee benefit at the Lyric Theatre, London, about the middle of last Decem ber.
