USE OF WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 21 March 1885
USB OF WORDS. A well educated person who possesses a college sheepskin, reads his Bible,' his Shakespeare, and' the daily papers, seldom-uses more than 3000" or 4000 words in actual conversation. Accurate think ers and close reasoners, who avoid vague and gene ral expressions, and wait until they find a-word that exactly fits their meaning, employ a larger stock; and eloquent speakers may rise to a command of 10,000; Shakespeare, who displayed' a greaiev va riety of expression, than probably .any;- '•vratSc&L any language, produced all his plays with- about' 13,000 words. Milton's works are built up.with 8000; and the Old Testament says all that it hajJ to say with 5462. In the English language there are, all told, 70,000 words.

CHOOSING HUSBANDS AND WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 21 March 1885
Of one tiling girls may be sure, and that is, that young men who make t-he best sons and brothers will- also . make the best bus bands. And young men may be equally' sure tliat those girls .who are the best daugh-: .ters,and sisters, will also as a rule be the best wives. If a young man, before he is . mar ried, is destitute of those affections and prin- ■ ciples which come out in filial obedience, fraternal courtesy,; and a controlling sense of duty, he-will be equally destitute of them after he is married. The mere fact of wed lock" will not change the fundamental prin ciples of his nature. He will be essentially the same human being after marriage—or, at least, after the honeymoon—that he was before it. The same principles hold true with regard to women. She who is selfish and vain and idle and deceitful as a girl will be pretty apt to be the'curso of the man who marries her. While the girl who is dutiful to her parents, and industrious and unsel fish aud truthful, will be almost...
THE EMPEROR OF GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 March 1885
THE EMPEROR OF GERMANY. It-is not unreasonable that the royalty of lEurope should gather to the celebration of jthe 89tli birthday of Kaiser- Wilhehri. His prolonged existence should be a cause of congratulation and of _ consolation. to them all. He has seen two presidents of the Ameri can Republic assassinated, and more'crown ed heads than can now be counted in Europe attacked, and in many cases with fatal effect, : He has lived through, the times of the fierc | est revolution the world has ever seen, and j ever since he assumed the crown he has iu !' sisted'upon "the right Divine of kings," and : has trodden down all sedition and rebellion,. , or even desire of a broader charter of popti i lar liberty, without compromise, and often , without mercy. He has been threatened with death by-many parties, on. many occas sions, and has been twice attacked, and once wounded;' Also he has-: fought."' He took part in the campaigns of -1813 and 1815 against France, and in every war Germany ha...
ROBERTSON. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 March 1885
ROBESON, Last Saturday' week was quite a gala day here among the children. Mr. Allen (the new teacher) arid Mrs. Allen got tip a first-rate treat for the child ren.- The funds wvere raised by subscription.
