STILL WAITING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 11 April 1902
STILL WAITING. A millionaire, famous for his 'love of horses, and also for the very low prices he paid for them, Baw a very good-looking hack in a Quaker's stable. As usual, he bid a vary low figure for the animal, which, to bia surprise, the Quaker ac cepted. His suspicions aroused, the rich man inquired if there was anything the matter with the hcrse. ' Have no fear/ said the Quaker. ' I can assure yon that you will be pleased when you see him go !' The horse, when home, turned out an inveterate jibber; nothing could induce him, when in harness, to more a yard. The angry millionaire interviewed the Quaker, ana exclaimed : . ?

HIS LITTLE JOKE, [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 11 April 1902
HIB LITTLE JOKE, The late Ameer of Afghanistan was a friend of England, but he had funny ways of showing his friendship. The Indian Government, for instance, gave him some ?£50,000 a year and provided him with rifleB, bo that he oould defend hiB country against the Russians. When the rifles got a year or two old, the Ameer sold them to the tribesmen cheap, and before long John Bull had anotheriittle war on hand with the tribesmen in question. But he was a friand of England, aB he again assured the Indian Government when they protested ! It was his game, indeed, to play off one nation against the other, for he did not want either Russia or England at Cabal. Once the Russian Governor of Turkestan informed the Ameer that a thousand RussUn cavalry were about to be exercised on the Afghan frontier, and he expressed a hope that it would not cause alarm. The Ameer re plied that he had no objection, as, by a most curious coincidence, he also was about to exercise a thousand cavalry opposite...

TWO MIN DS THAT THOU GHT AS ONE A leading English inventor of the time, though not popularly knows, is Mr Joseph Wilson Swaa, who celebrates his seventy-third birthday on the last day of October. The veteran's chief invention, and certainly the one which has made jumi uuv auvdu uavuojt, ID but} UlUttHUCDUtfllV electric light. Both Mr Swan and Mr Edison, the American, hit upon this method of lighting, and there was a dis pute as to the priority. Instead of going to law and ruining themBelveB, however, the two inventors joined forces under the same of Edison t nd Swan, and divided the profits. These it need hardly be said were tremendous. For example, their patent expired in November, 1895, and immediately that event took place the prioe of a lamp was reduced from 33 9d to 1b 9d. Another important invention by Mr Swan was the dry plate, which re volutionised modern photography, while he also discovered the metal by which photographs are made permanent Less than a month ago he received...
NEVER MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 11 April 1902
NEVER MORE. it appears that Madame Albam com pleted the first half-century of her existence lately, having been born at Montreal, Canada, in 1881. The fact that the famous singer made her life's debut in that part of the British Empire caused her to be much favoured by Queen Victoria. When Madame's fame began w ue iiuicrou otpuuii, xLor juajeBcy uesirea her attendance at Court. Lady Errol had charge of the youthful singer, and, when she introduced her to the Queen, Her Majesty asked in what language she could speak. 'In any language, Your Majesty — she knows them all,' replied her ladyship. So they chatted in Eng lish and French, and then Albani eang some songs. During the years that fol lowed the Queen never forgot har Cana dian songstress, and scoreB of times did Madame appear at Balmoral, She was one of the singers, too, at the service in the Memorial Chapel at Windsor last February. ?

Thus, taking; God's full cup of comforting, Let me giva thanks, and pouring out most free My life in loyal service let me bring To other lives the joy God giveth me.

Personalities. A CHINESE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 11 April 1902
Personalities, A CHINESE CASE. £}P« CHINESE! boy was, says the EM® 'Indian Medical Gazette,' brought ^£K I11*0 the Peking Hospital terribly injured .by a heavy log falling upou him. The doctors, to save his life, eut off his leg. The mother came, apparently to help to surge the lad. The patitnt, however, almost immediately afterwards died, ani expert examination ?bowed that his mother had given him arsenic. Eer reason, it i» supposed, was to prevent her bob from the disgrace of reachiog the next world in a maimed condition. This is a very strong point with the Chinese, who always pickle an amputated member to have it buried with them when they eventually die. In this instance, the family being poor, and the whole leg being difficult to pickle, the simpler course was taken of poisoning the boy, bo that he and his leg might go together.
