AMERICAN WOMEN AND WINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 March 1898

AMERICAN WOMEN AND WINE. American womsn ate supposed I o drink far; less wine at luncheon and dinner limn Englist women. One of the compluiuts thiit Brothet' Jonathan made agaiust us is this, lhat wo duu'tj rest content with one glass of claret at either oli our principal meals. Now, Brother Jonathan: has tn ken it into bis head that reforms shoukl begin at home.

CHINESE SAYINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 March 1898

CHINESE SAYINGS. A great many of the quaint and curious sayings of the Chinese have come down from the times of Yao, the Yellow Emperor, thousands of years before our Christian era ; some are attributed to Lao-Tze, and some to Confucius, Mencius, and others, but they are all assigned a great age by the Chinese, who have an exaggerated veneration for anything at all indicative of their descent from times that their wisest chroniclers can but feebly reach. The cynicism of some of China's sages would have done credit to the Diogenic order of the Tub. Even the gods did not escape their drastic re marks, for we learn that Confucius warned his disciples in regard to them in a speech as laconic as it was pithy : 'Respect the gods,' said he, 'but keep them at a distance.' This is only equalled by the somewhat less respectful, but more sarcastic, proverb : ' No image-maker worships the gods; he knows what they are made of.' ' If you can't draw a tiger, draw a dog,' reminds us of Demosthenes,...

NARRATIVES OF THE BUSHRANGING TIMES [COPYRIGHT.] A True Story of Macquarie Harbour. IN SEVEN PARTS. PERIOD, 1848. PART IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 March 1898

NARRATIVES ' .-? OF THE BUSHRAMING TIMES .:.......:'.... [Copyright.] A True Story of Macqnarie Harbour. ? BY CAPTAIN LACIE. i . ? ' . ? '' . IN SEVEN PARTS. j PERIOD, 1848, PART IV. ' We are lost,' said Glenmore in a resigned way. 'The boat must have - gone out of this last night either to : come round to us or make out to sea. In either case it would go hard with the craft, and it is quite certain it can't . : get round our way. What will we do?' .'Why, go ahead as I said, and see -where the schooner really is. There isn't the least doubt the boat would go down in the harbour with such an ex perienced captain and crew as were on board. It may be standing out in order not to be beached here,' Gunn answered. This seemed reasonable, and after a little further inspection the men went on round the bluff which stood out on the west. It was a matter of some . danger and trouble to get round this, and then an undergrowth denser than any they had experienced was encoun tered. This past, th...

Pre-emptive Seats. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 29 March 1898

Pre-emptive Seats. There is quite a commotion in the correspond ence columns of the 'Daily Telegraph' and 'S. M. Heralp' aa a result of the candidature of ? Mr. E. D. Mesgher for the Tweed. That gentleman is roported to have said that the ,. reason why he did not seek election for Philip ? division, which seat he resigned as a result of the Dean case, was because Mr. Lyne desired ? him not to disturb Mr, Copeland, who was relumed at the bye-olection, having been .defeated for Armidale at the general election by a freetrader. Had not Mr. Meaghor precipit ously and no doubt foolishly resigned his seat : for Phillip division, Mr. Copoland would have romaincd out of the present Parliament, like his colleagues Sir George Dibbs and Mr. F. B. Suttor. Now, on reading the statement just quoted Mr. Copeland rushed into print with an attack on Mr. Meagher, to whom one would have thought ho would have displayed gratitudo for two distinct favors, one lor the Philip vacancy and the other for leav...
