LOCAL NEWS. His Thoughts were Elsewhere — The easi ness with which aged people full into a mood of Teminieeenco is exemplified by an anecdote in 'Wetcas Sifting s. Johnny, who is much interested in American history, thought he^ would test his grandfather's knowledge of the subject. So, as the ?old gentleman sat reading his newspaper, joiinny ?began ; 'Grandpa, do you know what great war broke out in 1812?' The old man lifted his eyes and looked at Johnny over his spectacles. 'Why,' aaid he, ' that was the year I married your grand mother !' He Mispronounced It. — The Housekeeper's Weekly tells how a boy was led_ astray by a mis understood title. He was about eight years old, and wa 3 looking over the book-shelves for something to lead. A volume bound in red attracted him. It was Pope's ' Essay on Man.' He read it for a few minutes, and thenlthrew it down. ' It may be easy on .man,' he said, 'but it's hard on a boy.' Truly Feminine. — Some beneficial results may follow from tho sccon...

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP; [By Zara.] When I wrote my last gossip I was about to pre pare for the ball at Government House. Every thing that goes towards the success oE an entertain ment oE this kind proved most propitious. The weather was perfect, an immense advantage under any circumstance, but in this instance it meant com fortable dancing room, for it enabled the non-dancers — and there are many at these official functions — to promenade the garden, or to sit in the verandah, which was decked with bunting and fur nished most invitingly for the purpose. The cor ridors, staircase, terrace, and Lady Duff's boudoir were all available, so at no timo was the crush un pleasant. His Excellency and Lady Duff received their guests in the ball room, which was lavishly adorued with roses and other flowers. One mantel piece, decorated with zinnias and ferns, looked beau tifully fresh all the evening. The band was stationed in the usual alcove, and half-hidden in-, foliage. Supper was served in t...

Bank-note Rhymes. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Bank-note Rhymes. Theie is a great deal of writing on bank-notes which is mainly the product of the love of scribbling possessed by a good many persons. Much of it is ridiculous rhyme unworthy of repi tition ; but occasionally it is smart and apposite to the purpose of bank-notes. A sample of two such writings may be given. On a pound note appeared the following:— Ye ugly, dirty, little fcrnp! To look at hardly worth a rap ; And yet TU give my hearty vote None can produoe a sweeter note. ' Another inscription is : — It'e odd that any man should wleil A dirty, soabblt rag like this ; Yet mony a ane would cut a caper To get a wlieen eie bits of paper. The oilier quotation contains a blend of senti ment and pessimistic reflection : — Ye're my ain. ye're my ain, And to keep ye I'd bo fain ; But tii-? poor man can never keep his cash ; For 'twill gang, quickly gang, Like » n eaay-goin' Bang, Jjet ye bo however cur el u' or rash.

Aboriginal Cave Paintings. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Aboriginal Cave Paintings. Following is an abstract of the paper read on Monday evening at the monthly meeting of the Miitland Scientific Society, by Mr. Enrigbt, B.A., on 'Aboriginal Cave Paintings, etc., of our dis trict.' Mr. Enright tells us that he first visited a cave about two miles from the village of Bulga. He notes a red clay shale on the road from Singleton to Bulga which he takes to be identical with the red clay shale between Victoria-street and Thorn ton railway platforms, and which overlie the East Maitland coal seams. A brief description is given of boulders (erratics) which were embedded in the clay, and which the road makers found it necessary to remove. Mr. Enright noted about two hundred of them lying at the road side, and 6aw on them strong evidence of ice-po'.ish. After some further observations upon the geological formation and indicia of the locality, Mr. Enright brings us to the first cave which he inspected. It is in the Hawkesbury rocks, 23 feet long, 4J f...

ITEMS OP INTEREST. The case of Dowe v. Vickery was brought under the notice of the Chief Justice in Chambers on Tuesday. This was a special case stated for the consideration of the Supreme Court by the Police Magistrate at Tamworth. It appeared defendant, Sydney Vickery, had been proceeded against for destroying a brand; it seemed some sheep belonging to a selector named Teffrics were allowed to stray on Bective Station, managed by defendant; the sheep were branded' with defendant's brand by mistake, and when handed over to Jeffries defendant had his brand removed. It was contended defendant had com mitted a technical error in removing a brand once placed on the sheep. The magistrate dismissed' the case against Vickery. His Honor gave it as his opinion that the magistrate was right. Schellenberg, found guilty of selling copies of Barcl Cash, when brought up for sentence, said since he had been convicted it had occurred to him he might be given an opportunity of look ing through the ...
