THE WRY GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

THE "WHY GLASS. When X was a little girl I lived with my father, and Bisters, and brothers, in a large house, where we had many servants, and wore fine clothes. My mother was dead, and my eldest sister took care of us. I used to fancy she was very cross, and very " fussy t11 but I know now that she was only trying her befit to make nie obedient and orderly. I am sure we were wilful and untidy enough. About six miles from our "house lived Aunt Pfcoebe. I was her godchild and favourite, and X used to go and stay with her sometimes, which was the greatoflt pleasure I could have. Her house was called •• Strawberry Cottage," and was not at all like our grand home. It was very small, for Aunt Phasbe was not rich. She only kept two servants—Sarah, who did everytliing in the lioiiEe; and Roger, who kept the garden in order, and groomed the old pony. And yet I thought my aunt's house far prettier and nicer than the Hall, as my own home was called. I thought everything looked better amd taste...

One of these is contained-in a brief extract from an unpublished fragment of autobiography which Stevenson wrote 'at San Francisco in 1880, which shows in enter taining fashion the extreme buoyancy of liis spirits during liis student days in Edinburgh. It appears that one of the Stevenson set fiad been travelling from "Wales to Edinburgh, " strangely dilapidated," as usual, in the matter of coin. He was stopped by the booking office at Crewe for the lack of a paltry half-crown,'; when a brilliant idea struck him. He had fif teen minutes to spare, and rushing down town he exchanged for a half-crown a pair of dr««w trousers at the most convenient pawn office.* On that pair of trousers he was, so to speikjj' triumphantly wafted on the way to Edinburgh!^ When asked h...

What is a Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

What is a Gentleman. By EDWIN PUGH. Haky Jane, on lier " Sunday out, meets her bosom friend in the park and says; "Annie, allow mo to introduce you to ray young gentle man," and proudly presents a sheepish youth in dazzling raiment, that is only marred by some such trivial anon^ly as a tall silk hat in conjunction with bro^N boots. TJie "young gentleman " comes for\vapd, raises the hat, and extends a huge, gloved hand. He squeezes the fingers of Mary Jano's friend rather too heartily, and she winces. " I beg 3*our pardon, miss, I'm sure," says lie. " Granted, mur murs the lady sweetly. And Mar}' Jane re marks, " 'Arry is that strong, you wouldn't believe." Is 'Arry a gentleman ? Before wo grapple with that thorny question it would aa well to arrive at some idea of what the word "gentlemen" means. lixact defini tions are always a bore, seldom satisfactory, and very often merely an excuse for epigram. Perhaps it would be better, then, first of all, to get at the popular conception »of...

It was always [ n wonder to me that such churches could be ; built in such little hamlets, and our church was -one of the wonders of the west, though the village of which it was the centre and crown had hut a few hundred inhabitants. It was a fine old Norman church with square tower and a rich peal of bells, with massive granite columns, recessed arches, and richly mullioned windows, with an oak screen and curiously carved pews, and adorning the walls monu ments which set forth the valorous deeds of the mighty dead whom the parish delighted to honor. It was a church with which none in these now and wealthy lands can compare for aivliiUvtural magnificence and beauty. It was built when labor was in command of the lord of the manor...

Ping-Pong Rules. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

Ping-Pong Rules. Whilst the game has undoubtedly attained its present popularity under the onomatopoetic title of ping-pong," Hh . more enthu«;fi«fcm mul. serious devotees objectto the somewhat frivolous suggestion.which this name conveys, preferring to style the game table tennis, and there-fleems little doubt that under this latter title it will ~ live in the long run. Table tennis is played on almost exactly tlio same lines as the "single game" of lawn tennis, except that, as no courts are marked out, the full expanse of each half of the table is avail able alike for the service and the Teturn. Whilst the game can be enjoyable and skil fully played on any ordinary dining or drawing room table of six feet or more in length, the size of the regulation match table has been fixed for the present by general consensus of opinion at nine feet long by five feet wide. The height of the net should be in the pro portion of about three-quarters of an inch to each foot length of the table—Le....

De Profundis. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 February 1902

De Profiindis. Sydney is sucli a suiartly dressed city that many a reader may say of its "submerged tenth"—"did'nt know there was one.!" ,< But if our poverty does not personally, adver tise its woes, nor lift up the painfully impor tunate voice that makes-.the dominant noto of other streets, the fact is duo to municipal mercy leaving the "dosser." undisturbed in domain and park. Local misery has a milder cry— merely for lack of protest against the eternal ** moving on " meted elsewhere. The philanthropist has no need to pass city boundaries for his charitable objective, nor has the student of humanity to hunt his material with nioro effort than a walk to the nearest park entails; there lie will find subject matter of every degree—the whole gamut of the social scale is at his disposal levelled all by the broad brotherhood of want. " Poverty " is too relative a term to convoy much idea of misery. Some men find a four figure income inelastic to stretch round the year, but t...
