The Deserter. A story of the Far West. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 March 1898

The Deserter. A story of the Far West. " Corporaal, bring in the prisoner!" It is a June clay at Fort Davis, on the little Missouri river, and a court martial has assembled to try Private Samuel White on a charge of one of the gravest crimes a soldier can be guilty of in time of peace—striking a superior officer. Private White came to Company B, nth Infantry, from Jefferson barracks a year before. One day he walked into a lecruiting office in St. iLouis and offered himself for medical examination. The sergeant was surprised—the captain in charge was surprised—the medical examiner was surprised. Here was a man 26 years of age—sound as a dollar^a gentleman 111 speech and demeandur and. evidently used to the good things ' of life, who was anxious to go soldier ing 111 time of peace. He was alto gether different from the average material—so much out of hi? line that the recruiting officer looked him over and growled out that he'd bet his boots "the dude" would be posted as a de serter w...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. Sydney, Tuesday. The Meeting of Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 March 1898

LATEST TELEGRAMS.: Sydney, Tuesday. The Meeting of Parliament. Parliament will be called together J for the despatch of business on the ' 5th of April; much earlier than was. anticipated. The Premier gives no reason why Parliament should be called together before Easter, but in political circles the opinion is held that it points to an earlv dissolution. The idea is that to avoid expense both the Federal Referendum and the General Elections Poll will be taken at the same time, and the combined event will take place at the end of May or the beginning of June. Ouaack, the man wanted for the Rookwood tragedy, was seen this morning at Hornsby Junction, when he asked.some local residents for food and the day's paper. The police have gone in pursuit. The Executive has commuted the death sentence on Frank Holmes, fos attempted murder by shoo ing at hi s wife at Redfern, to twelve months' hard labor. Leave is given him to apply for a license of release at the end of three months. Owing to. ...

IN MEMORIAM HENRY BUDDEN, WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE FEBRUARY 5, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 March 1898

HENRY BUDDEN, Who departed this life February 5, 1898. Another friend has pass'd death's portal, Gone to his eternal rest;   Paid the tribute of all mortal, Gone to dwell amidst the blest.   Leaving loving wife in sadness, With her child of tender age,     Who may be her source of gladness Through life's toiling pilgrimage.   Death for none will over tarry, We must go when He appears : So was it with our friend Harry, Leaving us to mourn in tears. Quite a host in numbers follow In the funeral's solemn wake,   Speaking low with heart-felt sorrow, For kind-hearted Harry's sake. Lowered is the coffin—slowly To its earthly resting place, Whilst we gaze, our heads bent lowly, Picturing his well known face.   There, his aged parents bending O'er the grave in sad despair; And their lips engage in sending Up to heaven a silent prayer.   They now think of their son only Who was once their ...

The Issue of the Coming Elections. Upper House " Reform." [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

The Issue of the Coming Elections. Upper House " Reform." (By William Errs, Secrotary Austra lasian National League.) Mr. Retd has now raado clear what are bis intentions for tho coming general elections. The county- is to be asked to pronounce in favour of the abolition of an independentLegislative Council, and for the creation of a body which shall bo but a shadow of the party in power for the time being in the Assembly. It is not to be a Cham ber of Revision, as every Upper House is supposed to be, but a Chamber consisting of the creatures of aMinistry which may by some means, fair or foul, have behind it a majority for the time .being. It is as well that this matter should he fully and freely dis cussed, and the whole position made clear, before tho campaign begins. Mr. Ueid asserts, and possibly with some truth, that the legislative Council is not in touch with the popular senti ments of the day, and that the fact of its members being nominated for life induces a feeling of dis...

The Home. "Bending the Twigs." [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

"Bending the Twigs." Many people seem to hold the opinion that young children—dear as they are to a parent's heart—are utterly useless in the household. So they are, unless the wise mother • begins their domestic training at an early age. 1 know one wee girlie of :i, who, as soon as her father comes home from business, care full y carries him his slippers from their " slipper box," waits while the boots are taken off, and as carefully convoys them to tile kitchen.

What Bad Chirography Did. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

What Bad Chirography " It's a,bad thing not to write a. legible hand," said the philosopher, knocking the ashes from the end of his cigar. " Some times most unpleasant complications arise from the habit of not writing clear ly. I remember a row I once had with a friend Darby because of it. Darby had sent me a photograph of his wife with her four little ones, two on her lap and one peering over each shoulder. The children were great friends/ of mine, and lie knew I'd like to have it.: I im mediately acknowledged its receipt to Mrs. Darby, and closed by saying that she looked like a beautiful rose tree—the idea being that: she was'the tree and the children the roses." . . " Very nice idea," said I. ' ' " Yes," returned the philosopher sadly, "but my handwriting ruined it all. Darby met me on the street a few days later, and coldly-inquired what I meant bv- writing to his wife and telling her she looked like a dutiful rooster." " Har per s Magazine.

The Gladstone Family. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898

, The Gladstone Family. I think that very few persons indeed can now be living who remember the father of Mr. Gladstone. I have a viyid recollection of him . as a kind ac tion towards myself ™ tlie cause of a visit he paid to my mother, with whom I was. when he came into the room. I was sitting on a low seat ,in a corner :of the room, and, having shaken hands with my mother, he came Hp to me and gave me. the letter with a few kind words. I raised my eyes to him as 1 took it, and saw a; tall, quiet-looking man; simple though dignified in manner, with somewhat heavy features,- which, according to my recollection, bore no ' resem blance to the striking countenance of his distinguished son. ... I re ceived, however, great kindness from a much nearer relation of.Mr. Gladstone's —his only sister. She was a good many years older than, myself, and had often had me with her as a child in her own home ; but after I grew up I met her again in AVarwicksliire, and was (hen her almost daily compa...

Comic Cuttings The individual who entertains thought wouldn't always like a neighbour to see his guest.

After that it is other people who suffer. She : " You tell your sister I meant to write her a note, but didn't." He : " Thanks—she'll be glad to hear It."

The Baby's Nap. When a baby is well and dressed com fortably "It should spend fully three fourths of its time in slumber.
