Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Our Sydney Letter. [From our Sydney Contributor.] In replying to tbe toast of his health Mr. Stodiart, at the close of the recent Test Match, complained of the illman ner of the crowds ou the cricket groun.i during a test match. Their boorislmess is uot directed only against the Englishmen, for similar demonstrations of feeling are frequent in an intercolonial cricket match. The crowd cannot stand their side getting worsted, and they hoot and hiss at any opponent who dares to appeal to the umpire, or keep the interests of his side in view. It is perhaps eight to say that it is only a minority of the Bf ectatorB who give way to these brute sentiments; but they are a loud mouthed minority who make their presence felt in proportion to the cad dishneES of their expressions. The great majority of the public go there as lovers of good cricket, and, although naturally enthusiastic about their own people, are still able to appreciate, aud like to see, good play from the side of tbeir oppone...

He was altogether different from the average oiaterial — so much out of his line that the recruiting officer looked him over and growled out that he'd bet hie boots ' the dude ' would be posted as a...

A Rapid Speaker. v The, -most rapid orator in the world, aud the fnreinost of the swiftest short hand' writers, according to the 'Ber- liner Tagblatt,' is the Italian Deputy and ex-Miuister, Barnardino- Grimaldi.

Electors' Rights. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
Electors' Rights. As a general election is not far distant, «leotors who wish to record their votes at the coming contest, should look for their electors' tights, and if they have lost them, obtain substitutes ; and in the event of any error in the spelling of names, this also should be attended to, as it may lead to con fusion when the holder desires to record his vote. If the name be spelt wrongly, the proper course to pursue is to send the right to the Chief Electoral Officer, Sydney, who will issue an amended right.

Astonished Them. The Rev. Mr. Pairbank, an American Board missionary in India, writes :— ' My touring has been much facilitated by a bicycle, which 1 was enabled to purchase through the kindness of friends in America. Whole villages turn out to see the ' foot carriage.' Some are much astonished at. the speed of the machine. Others think 1 ought to go much faster, and frequently while go ing along quietly 1 hear men say : ' Now. brace up, let us see what you cau do.' 1 am frequently asked whether the pro l-elling power comos from my feet or my hands. Wherever I go I h'nd plenty of peopie willing 1o come and listen to my preaching if they cau only catch a glimpse of the horse that needs neither grass nor grain.'
The Nose and Character. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
The Nose and Cli:irnct«r. You will rarely see a very small or insignificant nose on the face of a man of marked individuality. We may not perhaps go so far as to say that 'the nose is a signpost; that points to charac ter' ; but we may say that n great in dividuality very seldom has an insigni cent nose. . ?? Napoleon used to sny, 'Give me a man with a good abundance of nose, when I want a hard-working man.'- Certainly, a small, short nose upon a full-grown man's face always gives an expression of weakness, and a sort of childish look. General Sommer, commanding the Aus trian brigade In Bosnia, has been ex perimenting successfully with dogs for war purposes. A hundred and fifty dogs have been taught to carry the mails jn the mountains to distances that occupy j them two or three hours.
How Gaol Birds Talk. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 March 1898
How Gaol Birds Talk. Not the least interesting evidence given before the I'lisons Committee re lated to the Voile of signals in use among regular gaol birds. One ex-prisouur very obligingly explained these to the committee. The first thing, it seems, which a prisoner attempts to communi cate to his friends is the length of his sentence. Some of his signals are a plain and simple use of the fingers, but there is an alternative code to express one term of imprisonment which puzzled the committee very much. The prisoner either holds up both lists, or touches his ear with one finger. This latter gesture was found to signify twelve, months, that is to say one (y)ear.
