CAUSE OF INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
CAUSE OF INTEMPERANCE. A word to those who, with their whole hearts and souls, are crusading against the evils caused by alcoholio drink, not in the way of drunkenness alone, but of those tippling and treating customs which do so much to sap the health and shorten the lives of millions. Let me tell them why all their zeal and self sacrificing work produce so little result! It is because they deal with the drink question as one which stands alone. Intemperance is only one of what Mr. Spencer so aplly calls " physical sins." All violations of the laws of health are sins of the same kind, though not equal in degree; and if a child has been taught from the nursery upwards that what is unwholesome it will be easier afterwards to set his mind and his habits against the abuse of strong drink; "nips" and " drinks " are the natural successors of irregular feeding, of casual ices, and chocolate creams, or even occasional cigarettes. Here I may say, in passing, that I believe the injury done b...

CONFESSION, CONVICTION, AND EXECUTION LONG DELAYED. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
CONFESSION, CONVICTION, AND EXECUTION LONG DELAYED. On May 16, 1882, a man of most uncommon and ill-ominous surname, Thomas Fury, was executed at Durham for a murder committed at Sunderland. The circumstances were most singular, and, in fact, no exactly similar case appears to be recorded. The crinio had not only been committed as long ago as over thirteen years previously—namely, in 18(59 ; but the criminal was convicted entirely in consequence of his own voluntary confession. His victim was one Maria Fitzsimmons, or Fitzsimons. In a paper written and delivered by him before his death, he stated that he was bred a London " streel-arab,'' a wander ing thief, in consequence of his father being obliged to flee from Ireland, owing to lus connection with a secret society, while this son was very young. The executed man also left it as his opinion, recorded on this paper, that most juvenile crime is due to ignorance of .the laws, and he urged that it is the duty of society to teach all y...

A HEW DYNASTY. THE BRITISH EMPIRE IS RULED OVER BY THE HOUSE OF SAXE-COBURG-GOTHA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
A HEW DYNASTY. THE BRITISH EMPIRE IS RULED OVER BY THE HOUSE OF SAXE-COBURG-GOTHA. A point that may not be generally known is that the accession of King Edward VII. marks the beginning of a new dynasty. Startling though it may seem, the English people to-day are ruled over by the House of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. The late Queen Victoria was the last who by birth was of the family of Este, Guelph, or Hanover, whichever be the most correct description, for his Majesty, the present King, though the heir of his mother, and as such King of these realms, undoubtedly belongs to his father's family, that of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. Consequently his Majesty is the first of a new dynasty, which will probably be known as the dynasty of Saxe-Ooburg. The point is established by the pre | cedent of George I. He came to the English throne under the Act of Settle ment of 1701 as the son of the Princess Sophia, Electress and Duchess-Dowager of Hanover, who wus the youngest daughter of Elizabeth, daughter of Jam...

A CIVIL SERVICE ANECDOTE. ONE MAN ONE BILLET QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
A CIVIL SERVICE ANECDOTE. ONE MAN ONE BILLET QUESTION. Secretary Carlisle of the United States Treasury Department, once issued an order that no two members of a family should be employed in the Department at the same time. This order caused several dismissals and forced resigna tions, and one young woman, whose mother had been forced to leave, entered an indignant protest with Logan Carlisle, the secretary's son and chief clerk of the department. She pleaded, threat ened, and finally said, ' Well, Mr. Chief Clerk, it's' a poor rule that won't work both ways. Both your father and yourself being here, the rule is violated, and I think it a great shame that such favouritism should be displayed I' Logan drummed on his desk with hi8 pencil and assumed a far-away look. Finally he said,' Well, I guess the old man will have to go.'
HUSBANDS WHO COME HOME LATE. A WIFE'S NOVEL INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
HUSBANDS WHO COME HOME LATE. A WIFE'S NOVEL INVENTION. Ex-Governor Connell, of New York, used to tell a story at bis own expense. It seems that when in office, at Albany, he would sometimes return home late at night, after his better-half had retired, and when she asked him what time it was, would answer, 'About twelve,' or ' A little after midnight.' One night, instead of making the usual inquiry, she said, 'Albert, I wish you would stop that clock, I cannot sleep for its noise.' All unconscious, he stopped the clock. In the morning, while dressing, Mrs. Connell inquired, artlessly, ' Oh, by the way, what time did you get home.?' ' About midnight,' replied the Governor. ' Albert, look at thatolock 1' The hands of the clock pointed to 2.30. The Governor was crushed.
BEER LOZENGES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
Beer lozenges are among the latest things which hare been produced by science in Germany for the convenience of humanity. The lozenges are made of the powder obtained by evaporating lager beer and contain all the ingredients, so that in order to convert them into sparkling ale all that is necessary is to dissolve them in water to which some carbonic acid has been added—possibly soda-water would be a not inefficient substitute. For those who like this sort of thing no doubt compressed beer will take its place in the armamentum of the travelled, though it is likely that most people will still take their chsace on the proximity of the "pub," which has never yet played them false since beer became a national drink.
PRESIDENT McKINLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
president Mckinley. Here ia a good story about President McKinley. The President was taking a stroll in a Washington suburb, when he observed a little girl of six or seven superintending the aquatic movements of a retriever of which she was in charge. To please the child Mr. McKinley threw his stick into the pool, and the dog, promptly seizing it, brought it to the batik. The maiden shouted, "You are a dear good dog, Mao 1" "Mac! Why Is ho named Mao?" adked the head of the Republic. The child, unaware of the President's identity, replied,'' "Why, sir, papa called hitn 'Mac' after Mr. McKinley, the President, you know, because he can fight our neighbour's dog that's sal led-Bryan." President McKinley gave the little damsel a coin, and walked away, looking very much amused.
RANJI'S SMARTNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
RANI'S SMARTNESS. ! F. S. Jackson tells a good story respecting Ranji. One day during the progress of a match between Cambridge University and Yorkshire, Jackson was bowling to Tunniclifle, Rauji being at slip. Tunniclifle cut a ball which wasn't seen after leaving the bat. The bats men, certain it had gone to the boundary, never troubled to run. Ranji stood quite still with hia hands in his pockets, smiling, apparently not troubling about the ball, which rather vexed Jackson, who asked why he was standing there, grinning like a Cheshire cat, instead of Gelding the ball. Upon which Ranji pulled the ball out of his pocket, he having caught it and placed it there by way of a joke, so quickly that no one had seen him do it.

Thore is a hope will cheer (he heart, Though all its joys may fly; Though all its gladness may depart, This hope will never die. 'Twill cheer us in tho hour of gloom.

WHERE HE PLANTS THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902
WHERE HE PLANTS THEM. A well-known bishop some time ago lost his third wife. A former curate of his, who had known the first wife, returned from Africa recently, and wanted to see the grave. He called at the cathedral, and saw the verger. ' Can you tell me where the bishop's wife is buried V 'Well, sir,' replied the verger, 'I don't know for certain, but he mostly buries 'em at Brompton.' Young Hardup's spirits are cast down, And now he s lying ill in bed ; For when he sought Miss Billion's hand, He got her father'* foot io«t««d.
