COURAGE UNDER DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 14 September 1901

COURAGE UNDER DIFFICULTIES. Tho coolness of the Maori character was manifested some years ago during a debate in tho House of Representatives at Wellington. There was a great com motion there ; not a political, however, but a physical convulsion — an earth* quako. Tho roof swayed first in one, thou in the other direction. Members started up in alarm, prepared for a speedy retreat. A few seconds pause, during which eyes wero turned in questioning torror first at the roof, then at the frightened faces around ; and then Major Te Wheoro, who had been ad dressing the House, and now stood quietly waiting, remarked, with imper turbablo calmness, that when the honourable gentlemen present had re covered their equanimity he would proceed with his observations.

DAYS OF DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 14 September 1901

DAYS OF DANGER. The most terrible timo of the French Revolution has a sickening record. Ono half of the entire number of victims — namely, 1,356— were guillotined after the Law of Prairial. No deadlier in strument was ever invented by the cruelty of man. Innocent women no less than innocent men, poor no less than rich, those in whom lifo was almost spont no less than th0B0 in whom ite pulse was strongest, virtuous no less than vicious were sent off in woe-stricken batches all these summer days. A man was informed against ; ho was seized in his bod at five in the morning ; at seven he was taken to tho Conciorgorie ; at nine ho received information of the chargo against him ; at ten ho wont into the dock ; by two in the afternoon ho was condemned ; by four his head lay in the ovecutioner's basket.

FRENCH MARRIAGE LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 14 September 1901

FRENCH MARRIAGE LAWS. So rigid &ro the marriago laws in Franco, that if tho rules aro ncglcctcd, if tho registrar neglects to state in tho marriage certificate that tho consent of the parents has been obtained, ho is liable to a fine of three hundred francB and aix months' imprisonment ; and when tho prescribed noticcs arc not carried out, to a fine of three hundred franca and ono month's imprisonment. wo can seo now tins extraoruinary French law may operate in cases where Englishwomen in their own country arc so unfortunate as to marry Frenchmen. Tho case to point to is that of Gertrude Belgravc, a young English lady, who was married to Jules Alfred Dcsainte, a French teacher, aged twenty-two. . Tho marriago took place at tho parish church of St. Matthias, Earlscourt, Middlesex, after the banns had been duly published. His father only became acquainted with his son's marriage about three years aftorwards, and telegraphed that he would como over from Paris. He did so : ackno...

BALL-ROOM ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 14 September 1901

BALL-ROOM ETIQUETTE. , Iu a publication called ' How to Dance,' it is laid down A gentleman's arm should not oncircle his partnor's waist in dancing, but his right hand should rest on the side, with the thumb slightly curved towards tho palm, and should be placed lightly against hor form at the waiat. Again, it ia an excellent rulo for the lady, instead of placing tho left hand on a partner's shoulder, to bond her elbow and rest her foroarm slightly on the arm encircling hor waist. The position is useful in warding off collisions, as tho pair move more in concert with each other. Tho book coutains 4 Hints to Ladies ' and 4 Hints to Gentlemen ' on thoir dress, and among the latter thero is much that might be taken jocularly were it not obvious that tho writer is in quite doadly earnest. 4 Love-making in a ball-room is an ovidonco of bad breed ing,' says our author, but she quickly adds, ( No rulo bars a gentleman from paying complimento to his fair partners.'

NATIVES AND POLYGAMY. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 14 September 1901

HATIYES AND POLYGAMY. Tho Bishop of Mashonaland has been drawing attention to tho evil effects of polygamy which prevail amongst the native tribes of South Africa, and to which ho asoribes the native man's great aversion to work for work's sake. The native women are marketable commodi ties, practically bought at so much a head, and the husband's first considera tion is to make his investments pay. Consequently he makes his wives do all the work, whilo he wastes his timo in laziness and beer-drinking, and is thus insensible to tho demands of the social conditions of civilization. Tho plurality of wivos is an old difficulty in tho mis sionary field, and overyono will remember the wicked story of the Fijian chief in tho early days who, finding that he could not bo baptised as a Oiiristian whilst ho had more than ono wifo, went away Borrowful, but came back joyful, having solved the difficulty by eating tho superfluity. But the Bishop of Mashona land's proposed remedy is much moro up to...

INVETERATE SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 14 September 1901

INVETERATE SMOKERS. The consumption of tobacco in tho form of oigars is almost incredibly large iu Ouba, and for tho city of Havana alono it has been estimated to amount to an aggregate cost of five million dollars per annum. Evory man, woman, and child appears to be addicted to the habit. It strikes a Northerner as rather odd for a lady to sit smoking hor cigarette in her parlour : but thiB is not at all rare. The men of all degrees smoke everywhere, iu the dwelling house, in tho street, in the theatro, in the cafds, and in the counting room ; eating, drinking, and truly it would also seem sleeping, they smoke, smoko, smoko. At the dinner tables of the hotels it is not unusual to see a Cuban tako a few whiffs of a cigaretto between tho several courses, and lights aro burning close at hand to enablo him to do bo. If a party of gentlemen are invited to dine together, the host so ordors that a packet of tho finest cigarottes is frequently passed to his guests, with a lighted taper, in...

PERSECUTION OF JEWS. In England, during tho time of the Plantagetiets, tho Jews were in turn tolerated or oppressed, as suited tho interest* of tho reigning king, until, at last, they were driven forth by Edward I., and mot no furthor toleration uutil the time of Cromwell* In 1189 the Jewish colony at York waB forced to take refuge in tho Castle ; finding oscapo impossible, thoy chose to die rather than fall into the hands of thoir enomies. Tho Jews at York. — As the council closed, night descended, and while tho besiegers watched upon their arms, lo, within the stronghold flared the blaze of a furious conflagration. In the morning an entrance was easily forced, for the walls were no longer defended.

DEATH OF SIR JOSEPH ABBOT!, The news of the death of Sir Joseph Abbott, which took place ori Sunday, will have been received with great regret not only throughout this State, but all over the Commonwealth. For a great many years, the deceased gentleman figured prominently in the political life of this country, and took a:i active interest in muny private movements calculated to help forward the best interests of the S'ate. As Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, he discharged hia duties in a way which not only showed that he was an authority on Constitutional Law, but also in a way which added dignity to i he position and commanded 'he re spect of all. He occupied the chair during some of the most arduous and stormy sessions, and great rearet was expressed when he. had to relinquish his duties owing to failing health. His health continued to fail, and to such an extent that he was not again able to take an active part in politics. He was for several years Chairman of the Directorate...

The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 17 September 1901

The Passing Show. From present appearances, there is no doubt that the present State Par liament will compete with some of its predecessors in the matter of waste of time. The ajournment has been moved so frequently of late that complaint is being made of the fact. On Thursday night, for instance, a great deal of time was taken up by Mr. E M. Clark moving the adjournment to urge tne j carrying out of the recimmendation of a Royal Commission, and of a motion passed by the House a year ago that the man William Creswell, now an inmate of the Parrauiatta Lunatic Asylum, should be immediately re leased. This means, of course, the re-raking up of the Tichborne case, about ' which it seems as though wb are never to hear the last. It was contended by Mr. Clark and those who followed him, that the decision of the House had been ignored. It was shown that Creswell's friends were willing to take care of him, a id it was therefore contended that there was no reason why the Government should not...
