THE VERGER'S HALF-CROWN- I A clergyman, talcing occasional duly for a friend in oca of the moorland churches of a remote part of England, was greatly scandal ised on observing the old vercor, who hud been collecting the ottcrtory, quietly ab-lriiet a balf-ciowD before presenting the piate at the altar railB. After service he called the old man into the vestry, and told him, with emotion, that bis ciime had been discolored. The verger looked puzzled.

PERSONS WITH HOBBIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
PERSONS WITH HOBBIES. It has remained for a Nebraska ,U.S. A., collector to gather looks of hair Bhaved from tlie heads of noted criminals when tliey enter the peiietentiary, and these he labels and indexes with great care. Superstition sometimes accounts for the fancy prices oBeied for such ghastly relics. Frenchmen obtain them as charms against ill-luck. A Jersey man devotes himself to collecting door-handlei,old and i>ew, and claims a museum numbering over 3,000 examples, A national collection of figureheads is to be made Vy the Admiralty. A COLLECTION Of RAILWAY TICKETS. There is in Southampton a mm who has for some years been pursuing a very curious hobby. He has a mania for collecting railway tickets. He not only collects the tickets, but decorates his mirror with them. When he has been able to successfully dodgi the collector, as it were, and retain possession of the bit of pasteboard, he is as happy as a child wilh a new toy.

LUCIUS SULLY. IN THE BLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
LUCIUS SULLY. BY LECHMERE ANDERSON. IN THE BLOOD. " I sometimes tliink it wouldn't Dp a bad idea fur a young fellow to sot up as a [)i o/eaa ional tliief; I believe it would supply h long-felt want," said Lucius Sully, as ire dawdled over our dessert. ( We bad thought of going to the tables, but the season waa rapidly drawing to a ! close, and the evenings weie too warm to be pleasant. It was I who had suggested it would be preferable to remain where! wt were,with the cool heliotrope-scented air blowing gently in through the open ' window, somejBlarct of the finest vintage j on the talile by our hand. Sully had assented readily. Personally, i do not think he muoh cared for play ,* it had palled upon l.'iiu, although, contrary to usual experience, he won heavily. I know now that many a poor tenant in Ireland had'cause to bless an unknown benefactor,but of this Sully said nothing.

THE ORATOR'S INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
THE ORATOR'S INFLUENCE. There are things whioh type cannot repro duce. The recorded sermons of Whitfield do not glow with the fire of his wonderful oratory. The discourses of Jonathan Ed wards fail to disclose the secret of liis great and resistless powers. The speeches of the - greatest orators are read without emotion, when the audiences that heard them were swept and swayed as by a whirlwind. The face of Cicero gave power to his word. The concentrated energy of Demosthenes carried conviction with his argument. The kind ling eye, the play of emotion in the mobile countenance, the curling of the lips, the pointed finger or sudden thrust of the hand, the erect and quivering frame, the blood mounting to the temples, the momen tary pause, the rush of rapid, eager speech ; all that belongs to an intense and vital per sonality, grappling with great thoughts, moved by strong passions, urged forward to high. endeavour, cannot be transferred to plates of metal and traced upon paper. If sub...

DECIDED BY CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
DECIDED BY CHANCE. The sun, a great glowing ball ol fire, had just descended behind the fringe of elm trees on Meadow Hill, and the parched Bummer world was free to breathe at last. Wayne Hillard, finishing his sketch of the forn-sliaded pool in the glen, dropped his pcncil and inflated his lungs with the fra grantoxygen. Mrs. Mix, cleaning trout for the morrow's breakfast in the kitchen, sighed a sigh of infinite relief. " Ono more day's gone!" said she; and Kitty aud Tilly, skim ming cream in the cool cellar, mado haste with their work so as to finish without the light of a candle, and as they worked they talked and laughed lightly, as girls will do. Who were Kitty and Tilly ? Why, they were Mrs. Mix's "hired helps"—the rosy ' daughters of impecunious neighbours, who | were more than glad to eke out their slender allowance of pocket money by assisting the harassed landlady in " busy timos." Kitty was a radiant blonde, with hair just warmed with red, eyes of mischievous grey, and a...
FIGS AND THISTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
FIGS AND THISTLES. The devil's arrows lire all dipped in the poison of doubt. H'ow easy it is to feel big in the pre sence of a dwarf. ■ No man can overcome himself with out help from Christ. The man who is not giving to God is stealing from himself. A man who will lie on his knees won't tell the truth anywhere. Nothing can hurt you so much as to doubt the Word of God. The people who need your prayers most are those'you don't like. All the philosophy in the world has never made anybody better. The man who stands ou God's. Word never travels 011 low ground. A preaclier with the big head is a mail the devil loves to look at. When there is a giraffe in the pulpit how the lambs-do suffer. • It takes inore than eloquence to make the devil let go of people. It is human nature to hate people who show us that we are little. The less a man who won't pay his debts prays in church the better. Watch a man in business who is afraid of getting too much religion. Good character is an excellent thi...
THE STAG FOXHOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
THE STAG FOXHOUNDS. "The man ( marry must be a Nim roil," remavked the fair Diana Trotter to Mr. Slumkins, at the Dainpton autumn flower show. " Must be a 'what, Miss Trotter ?'• . *'A Nimrod," repeated the fair Diana, leaving Mr. Slumkins as wise as ever. Miss Trotter was at the time on a visit to her uncle, Major Gibbins, her home' being Stag Hall, near Cornleigh, in one of the home counties, and her father being a squire of the old school, and owner of a fine pack offoxkoun.ds, which, taking their name from their owner's residence, were known, far and wide as the " Stag Hounds." Mr. Slumkins was a wealthy stock broker on the look-out for a blue-blooded wife, and the fair Diana's black eyes were not long in piercing him through. The worst of it was, lie had never been across a horse's back in his life.' " Confound it 1" he muttered that night in his solitary chamber. " What a nui sance it is that I never learned to . ride 1 But for that drawback, the fair Diana might be mine. If I...
W. C. T. U. For the Young Folk. The Great Importation of Little Words and Deeds including Little People. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
W. C. T. U. For the Young Folk. The Groat Importation of LiUlo Words .and Deeda including Little People. Lot us begin with tho little people first. People (I" mean big people) are sometimes beard to say, '• Oh I tliey are only children, don't take any notice of them." Now, this is said as it the thing said or dono was of no weight or value, or that it did not matter because fchny, the speakers or doers were children and, therefore, of no consequence. Now, in the first plnce, everything said or done, .and especi ally by boys and girls, is of great moment because your-thoughls, words and 'acli'tna go to form your characters; that is, they form in you the babits of speaking the truth or of saying what is untrue; of obedience or disobedience ; of using pure or impure,' good or bad words and actions ; of kindness or cruelty; of gentleness or rniiKhness. You are by your daily life, really making the mon and women that you will be in a few years if God, our Father, spares you. All our thou...
A Pagan Pleasure Haunt. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 March 1902
A Pagan Pleasure Haunt. By A BANKER. A short distance from the beautiful slioreB of the Mediterranean lies that city of the dead, that voluptuous pleasure lmuat of paganism, Pompeii. In its prime it was a busy, thriving city, the popular sea coast resort and residence of large numbers of the wealthy upper classes of Borne, who passed their leisure time in the amphitheatre, the forum, and the crowded streets, the stone pavements of which are worn down into deep ruts by their chariot wheels. The numerous wine ehops too, in which the large amphora? or wine vessols are still standing, were also doubtless favourite resorts of those dissolute patricians. But they were literally sleeping on a vol cano; they hud built their city upon a site ofbeanty, upon the slopes of the smoking burning mountain, which formed a weird, fire-illumined background ; regardless of the fact that, probably those blood-red flames, which by night lit up the pall of cloud and steam as if the universe itself,were on...
