AFTER THE STORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
AFTER THE STORM. By Carti. Ci.aiik. Tho wind increased in fury. Gust after gust struck angrily against the window of the room in which Hetty Maynard sat trembling. It was a night to make; thu stoutest quail and Hetty was only a lone girl. The floor shook beneath her feet und tho win dow-frames rattled threateningly as the war fan; of thn elements went on. Hetty Maynard sat by a little work table making all but futile efforts to finish a letter which lay before hor. The raging of the storm without and an uncontrollable, tumuli; within had mado the, task almost impossible to her. .She had stolen up to her bedroom after tea on Sunday 'ovening, and had essayed to settle tbo question of her life. Under ordinary circumstances the seclusion of her chamber would have been most fitting for so momentous a task. But on this night the fury of thcstnnn bad dispelled all sense of rest and quiet. For nearly an hour she had been trying to pen a few coherent words, but tho angry gusts had distracted...
ONLY THE COAL MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
ONLY THI5 COAL MAN. Some time ago I met with a most ludicrous adventure while delivering coal at a private lun&liu isyluin just outside Dublin. Having been admitted by tie lodgs-keeper, I led my horse and dray round to the back of the bouse, aud, as I could see uo one about, rambled into one of the corridors in search of someone to whom 1 could deliver my load. Coming to an empty cull, curiosity prompted me to sb-.p inside, wh«n,carcle.ssly handling the door, it banged to, and it having a catch-latch, I found myself a prisoner. I shouted myself hoarse, and was delighted to see the small slide, in tho dour open. It was a gentleman, who, with bis wife, was visiting tho KHyluui. To him 1 explained my predicament. Imagine my disgust when the gentleman said to his wife : — ' Dear me, Marr, how cunning some of these creatures are. Did you hear this poor man's story ? Who would ever think he was mad ?' ' But I am not mad,' I explained. ' I'm the man that brought the coal.' ' Dear, ...
DEAD DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
DKA.D DOGS. There are so many dogs drowned in the Thames that it is necessary for thu Thames Conservancy to employ sereral men for the pur pose of taking the bodies out of thu water and burying them. In a chat I hud the other day with one of tho Conservancy men, I gathered that, as a rulo about fifty dogs a day are picked up in a dis tance of about four miles. On the day of our chat my informant told me that he and another man had picked up and buried forty-eight, while sometimes as mhny as sixty are found. With :-? twinkle in his eye he »aid that there were not many sausage shops in the neigh bourhood, or ho might he, able to make a better living ; as it is the pay which the men receive for their unpleasant work is by no means excessive.

Cutting One year old Cane. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
Gutting1 One-year-oid (Jane. Sin, — In your issue of tho 22nd March ' Southern - ito' writes as follows : — ''But just imagine to your self the intelligence possessed by this 'old planter,' when he tenders tho public the information that the Company will need to agree to cut one-year old cane first if it is frosted. Imagine to yourself any mill owner cutting one-year-old plant cane registering five degrees when nothing less than seven will pay.' Your coriesnondont cannot he a caneo-rower. nor does he write in fairness to the growers or tho Com pany. For tho last ten years at least one-year-old plant cane below Maclean has averaged over seven dogrees. I can mention quite a number of farmers who had their frosted cane tested at Harwood mill and the Company admitted it marked nine degrees and even more, but they would not cut pieces of from 10 to 15 acres in area because it was plant cane and they said if they cut such cane on one part of the river they would be expected to do it all o...

INVERTED M011M0NISM A PLURALITY OP HUSBANDS. The women of tho Ladakh tribe, who inhabit Middle Thibet (says Mr. Notovitcb, the trav eller), are far in advance, both in physical graces as well as intelligence, of their senii civilised sisters of other tribes and nations.

The rareness of tha mountain air gives them an exceedingly clear complexion, of which they are very proud. They havo eloquent mouths, with escellei.t teeth, ami their faces are continually wreathed with smiles. Their disposition matches this make-up, being sunny and amiable. They are extremely neat. Though on account of the altitude the climate is very rigorous, they spend a great deal of time bathing. In their costumes they show a charm ing inclination for the picturesquely bizarre. They will often combine filmy laces and mnny hued fabrics with handsome though sombre coloured furs in the most bewilileriii;; fa...
River Bank Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
River Bank Protection. Sir, — After reading several letters in reply to one I wrote on river bank protection, I should like to say a few words more on tho matter. Of course the plans of other writers are allgood onough if there were no cobra to destroy wood work or floods to cut away under banks, but where these prevail it is of little use saying what could be done if it wore not for them, for that does not suggest a remedy that will meet the case. As a proof of my plan being a good one I would refer interested persons to the result that has been brought about on either side of the approach to Harwood ferry, Previous to these approaches being built the banks were fast washiag away there, but since nearly half an acre of land has beon regained, on which now stock can be Been feeding. Seeing that stone can be obtained m unlimited quantities within a few yards of doop water at several places on the Lower Clarence, protecting uho bank at Palmer's Island would not be such a costly undert...

"Owed" to the Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
'Owed' to the Council. The aldermon sat in the Council hall, The boss seat was filled by the Mayor, The genial William openod the ball, And bearded the lion in his lair. Aid. Davo chippod in his mag, And Toinmv of courso took a hand, But the latter soon struck a snag, For David was born to command. Aid. William, while on his feet, Grew eloquent, and pilod on ' jam,' He retorted the chair, with words so neat, And for the press he didn't caro a d ? ! Tho Mayor unburdenod himself with a sigh, And said thus to his colleagues few : — ' Gentlemen, — I fail to seo why, The press should my words misconstrue.'

THE BUTCHER'S LOVE. Oh ! could I but my love re-veal in words befitting you ! But such a cow ard I am made by those kind eyes of blue! I'm dreaming of you day and night ; in snon, l cannot stop — and as a Chinaman would say, ' My love you'll find ' first chop.' ' I never sausage loveliness ! and, should you pass me by, my feelings would be all cut up — pork creature I would die ! The world's a different stall to me since on your face I've looked. Oh, tell me you will be my love, or else my mutton's cooked ! The tall woman in the long white . garment looked down on the swaying figure of the abject man at the foot of the stairs. ' Haven't touched a drop, eh ?' she harshly repeated. ' Let me hear you say 'preliminary ultimatum.' The poor man gasped for breath. ' Peliminy ullimalium,' he wildly stammered. Then, overcome with humiliation, he sank to the floor. Wife : ' Dear, the doctor says it is necessary for me to spend the winter at Nice this year. What do you think I'd better do ?' H...

The Mayor and the Press. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898
The Mayor and the Press. The Mayor of Maclean, on being elected to his present position, said that ho hopod to get fair play from tho press, and that ho did not objoot ?to fair oommont on his public actions. It seems, from his attack on the Adyooate last Tuesday night, that his idea of fair play is that tho press should always commont favorably on Ma actions, and when ho falls into an error, ~~~ should draw tho cloak of silenco over it. Mayor ' Sohwonborg on Tuesday night charged the Ad VOOATE with deliberate falsehood and deliberate misrepresentation of facts in its comments on his ruling at the previous meeting regarding the powers of the Works Committee. Such ? charges on his part aro exceedingly unjust and - indiscreet — unjust because there were no good grounds for them, and indiscreet because they 1 ?were made under circumstances which cause them to fall back upon the accuser. The cir cumstances which led to Mayor Sohwon berg making tho above quoted charges against the Advocat...

Now, tho genial Hibernian need not have chew so loudly, as the present Mayor fills tho nous of tho man Friday. Tho real sel-kirk is behind tho throne and well Master Frank knows it. If Aid. William had rofcrrod to tho Mayor as an automaton, no would liavo boon nearer tuo bull s eyo Tho real Crusoe of tho show is tho monarch of all ho surveys in his own sphere.
