The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

?\ß ïmnpû lierais PUBLISHED EV15HY SATURDAY MOKNING. SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 1898. IT is now abundantly clear that the pro- jected conference of Premiers will not come off and that the general elections will be fought out on the Commonwealth Bill. Although Mr. Lyne sues for a fiscal paladium for our perplexities and Mr. Reid declares he will strenuously oppose anything that will disturb the even tenor of a tariff tornado; and iii though a resolute band of Protection- ist and Froetmde members are appalled at the prospect of a campaign limited to the Commonwealth Bill, that issue is inescapable. And, after all, wherein is the pity of it 1 The question is superlative in importance and transcends all others in the opinion of most Australians. Mr. Reid knew the issue was inevitable and his usual dexterity was in the direction of putting himself right with those who favor Federation, whether or not they are satisfied with the Commonwealth Bill. When the referendum failed to record a statutory ...

Curiosities of Insurance. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

Curiosities of Insurance. -? A SIGNIFICANT symptom of tho highly specu- lative tendonoy of modern mercantile pro- gress is the increasing prevalence of what are generally known as ' fancy iuHuranooa.* This was, and that not so very long ago, whon Aro and lifo risks constituted practically tho only ones taken by reputable and old established offices. Now, even Lloyd's itself will, if BO desired, issue policies upon almost any and every conceivable contin- gency. For instanoe, there is an amiable lunatic living at Guildford, in Surrey, who every year insures all his worldly possessions against the BISK OF FOBEION INVASION. Insurances against particular and specified forms of aooidents are not by any means uncommon. One man, a miller, assured himself in the sum of one thousand pounds, at two shillings pee cent, per annum, against^ being killed by the revolving sweeps of him windmill. He was very absent-minded, and was often stopped by his men in tho act of wandering right under tho dea...

A LAKE OF WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

A LAKE OJJ WINE. It reoently took two powerful steam pumps a week to fill the largest wine re- servoir in the world. Properly speaking, it ia a lake-a lake of red wine 104 feet long, 34 feet wide, and 23 feet deep. Of oourBO, it is in California, that State of big things, that this wonder is to be seen, and the lake itself is tho blending of the juices of grapes from a --housand vines. As a system of blending it is in this respect as muoh a wonder as in point of quantity and place of keeping. It is another proof also that necessity is the mother of invention, for if it had not been that tho colonists could find no way to dispose of their wine in a profitable manner, owing to its abundance, it is probable the lake would never have been created, and another wonder thus lost to the world. The tun of Heidelberg, which the last generation, and even some of the present, learned to think of with wonder, ÍB but a ohild beside a full-grown man compared with the Californian creation.

A LIVING LIGHTHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

A LIVING- LIGHTHOUSE. Among nature's freaks in the vegetable -world the Asiatic Star Tree stands alone. Its properties are entirely peculiar to itself. Its history is olouded, its attributes unlike anything seen iu other trees; Enormously tall, a man of ordinary height is dwarfed into nothingness beside its trunk. Bare from the ground np to a distanoe of about forty feet, it puta forth at that plaoe a hundred tangled limbs. From the latter there sboot out great clusters of lon tr, pointed leaves, wnioh, bunohing themselves together, exude a kind. of phosphorescent light at night, giving a strange, spectral appearance to the big.tree. Travellers on the desert, deaorying this tree at night, frequently mistake the giant leaved thing for the illuminated window of a house or some lonely tower. " The light is not brilliant ; it is subdued but voluminous, and lasts until daybreak.

"COMFORT FOl^ THE OLD FOLKSY "; 1 SUPPOSE the wheels of time could suddenly bc reversed, and we rouM, in an instant, go back to the year 1814. Why, man, you wouldn't recog- nise England. You wouldn't Uuow how to speak, what to do, or how to understand the things around you. You would be as completely lost as though you were whisked away and dropped on the planet Jupiter. You would find no railways in England, no telegraphs, no running water in .the City houses, and might}' few of the houses themselves thut are standing now. Between 1814 .and 1894 the difference is. as great as between 1814 and 1600. Yes; and grouter.

TRAVELLER. LIGHT-EYED PEOPLE AT A DISCOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

.-*- v t . LIQ-HT-EYED PEOPLE AT A DIS- COUNT. A correspondent states that in many parts of South America the Indians are suspicious and very dangerous. Some of them will trade with strangers, but can never be relied on, while others will be friendly, and have a fairly good reputation in the matter of dealing with foreigners. But on one point all the tribes agree-they do not trust a man with eyes like a cat. In many places in South America a man with lixbt eyes is never safe, and the Indians are apt to kill suoh a man at signt. If no present opportunity should offer itself of gratifying this prejudioe, they will often hang around for days for the chance of dis- posing of the intruder, lt is related that not long ago a Frenoh trader was sitting quietly among some Goajira Indians, dis- cussing business, when a party of the same tribe, who had been filling up with mesoal, came along, and tho cry was raised : ' A man with eyes like a oat ! Let us kill him now.' There was a scramble and ...

CHAPTER XXXII. TWO WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

* CHAPTER XXXII. TWO 'WEDDINGS. Tho days of December at Nolan's farm were busy days for the Campbell girls, for on Christmas day they were to be led to the altar, and there joined for life to the men of their choice. They had come into the world together, and in the momentous matter of marriage they were not to part. It was arranged that the marriage should take place at the nearest church-the pretty little edifice that stood on the rise above the village of Howick, and one of the earliest churches built in the province of Auokland, and rendered for ever interesting and memor- able, beoause the beloved Bishop Selwyn had with his own industrious hands helped, to build it in the pioneer days of ohuroh work in New Zealand. That Christmas day, in the sixties, broke bright and fair. The sky was as olear as the hearts and consciences of the four young people who were to be mated. There were no pretences to a fashionable wedding. Two good English girls, refined, gentle, trusting, and lovab...

SKETCHER. PARENTS WHIPPED BY CHILDREN. TO REVENGE RIDICULOUS CHRISTIAN NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 18 June 1898

PARENTS WHIPPED BY OHII_DREN. TO BEVUNGE BTDICTO-OUS CHRISTIAN NAMES. * There'll come a day when he'll curse his father for giving him suoh a foolish name,' is the remark that scores of people make on hearing of an eccentric christening, and the prognostication ia pretty sure to prove a correct one. It is almost inconceivable that parents should be so blind to the future welfare of their children as to handicap them for life with idiotic names, and one cannot wholly blame the ohildren when they turn round in after years and ill-use the fathers and mothers who have exposed them to ridioule. To signify that their son waa born before daybreak, a simple minded oouple in a secluded hamlet OALIÍB» nra EAELY MORNING JACK, and stubbornly refused to be laughed out of their choice.

Four white-washed walls, destitute of piotures or ornament of any kind. Twelve, sixteen, or twenty bed cote. A. huge fireplace, which makes the fire appear small, and dull in comparison.
