Short Story. Plagiarism and Love. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 March 1898
Short Story. Plagiarism and Love. This is a tale of love, pure ami simple, which shows liow my brother 1 nearly won the privilege of providing for the keep of Miss Mary Ashlon, our. cousin, for the term of her unnatural life. She, however, now ornaments' another's homo, and Herbert's heart is dead. My brother had a heart in those days, though-lie was old enough to know better. It was a kind of a hobby with liiin. Herbert had long loved Miss Ashton, literally from afar, she being sublimely long, and he more than common squat. However, this defect he shared with Cupid himself, who is always repre sented as diminutive and podgy, and Mavy, I really think, was not averse to IUy brother's suit, for she frequently dropped smiles oil the top of his tall lmt, much to its wearer's content. She also said she would not hoar a word said against him. This was generally when there was nothing more to say. Jfiveu a bishop could iiml something funny to say pf a short man. Nevertheless, Her bert was ...

'Ah !' smiled tho father. ' Yes, sir,' said tho young man. ' Indoed ?' continued^ t.^o father. ' Yes, sir,'still insisted the young man.

Industrial Assurance. Taj? gr9B)}Bej}p9 ^}c^hag bgpq given «»r!ai ftaaiwmqo f§a4srs of late to iuuuo.... - "~~ aome warning timely and necessoij. The idea is to ensure working men's lives for comparatively small sums and to send round collectors for the premiums. It necessarily follows that the greater part of the premiumo on the policies which remain in force is absorbed by the expenses of collection. The benefits when compared with those of larger societies are meagre and paltry in the extreme, and Buch as they are, few policy holders are likely to stand tho persistent dunning long enough to claim them. The persona insured principally pay their money to maintain a host of collectors. If they were to make equal payments into tho Savings Bank they would find the results much more satisfactory, and they would, moreover, bo able to get their money whon they wanted it. Our financial editors are keen and trenchant in their denunciation of alleged misdoings on the other sido of the globe...

Explosion at Dudley. 15 Men Below. Search Party Stopped. On Monday morning about 9 o'clook a terrible explosion occurred at the Dudley Colliery. Fire damp is nup posed to bo the cause.

The Heathen in Our Midst. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 23 March 1898
The Heathen in Our Midst. The other day a contemporary made humorous reference to the fact that a small collector for the missions to the heathen, when asked where the heathen were for whom the subscription was desired, replied " At Newcastle." But according to the statement of one oi the local ministers it would appear that there are heathen very much nearer home. During a recent trip in the country the rev. gentleman referred to visited more than one home where there were numerous children, who with few exceptions had never been taught to read or write, and who had □ever been taught to pray. In fact, there are growing up to manhood and womanhood even in this highly favord district young people who are worse ofl than the heathen of the South Sea Islands, and little or no effort is made to reach them. It seems strange that more systematic efforts are not made by the various church organisations tc bring within the sphere of religious teaching every family residing in the colony. Whe...

" Skipped." It is reported that a firm of Chinese gardeners, not a hundred miles from this town, who were a bit behind with the rent, during the hours of darkness recently " folded their tents like the Arabs, and silently stole away," leaving some growing crops and working plant to satisfy the landlord's claim—a rather heavy one.
Creamery Company Disbanded. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 23 March 1898
Creamery Company Disbanded. At a meoting of shareholders of the Glennie's Creek and Goorangoola Co operative Company, Ltd., held last Saturday, it was decided to confirm the action of the directors in disposing of the two creumeries to Mr. D. J. M'Lean, of Newcastle. A motion was also carried agreeing that the com pany go into voluntary liquidation. The meeting was very lively at times, aud an animated discussion was carried on for a oouple of hours. From the faots disclosed it was gleaned that the sale of the two plants was made for £359, an offer had been previously made of £620, but through some alleged delay on the part of the directors the latter offer was with drawn, and they were now compelled to accept the other figure. It was freely contended at the meeting, too, that the directors had no power to make the sale in question until they first consulted the shareholders in meeting. These objections, however, were overridden by the majority of those present, who supported the ac...
