Not a Safe Charm. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

Not a Safe Charm. General Campbell, in his ' Indian Journal,' says that when he was on General Dalrymple's staff at Triahinopoli there was a dry well in a garden, which was a favourite haunt of snakes. One morning he discovered a large cobra-de-capello at the bottom of the well, basking in the sun. He ran to fetch his gun, but meanwhile some of the native servants pelted the snake with stones, and drove it into its bole in thp brickwork. General Campbell sent for the snake-cbarmers to get it out. Two of these worthies having arrived, we lowered them into the weil by means of a rope. One of fchera, after performing sundry incantations, began to play a shrill, monotonous ditty upon a pipe orna mented with shells, brass rings and beads, while the other stood on one side of the snake'3 hole, holding a rod furnished at one end with a noose. At first the snake, which had been considerably annoyod before it took refuge in its hole, was deaf to the notes of the charmer ; but after half an h...

A Drummer's Monument. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

A Drummer's Monument. 1 A recent decision that a monument shall bo erected in the Fronch town of Cadenet to Andre Estienne, a native of the town, who is called ' the little drummer of Areola,' recalls one of the most heroic episodes in modern history. It was an episode which illustrates the extraordinary military value of the 'spirit-stirring drum.' Napoleon Bonaparte's great career may be said to have been built upon a drum j for the battle o£ Areola was won by the beating of Andre Estienne's drum, and Napoleon always dated his confidedce in his own Eortune from! this battle, wliich. he won in 1796, m Italy. i'rl TT-l'fll o qrtlttll SirillV at Verona between two greatly superior forces, sailed jut at night, made a forced march, and with four teen thousand men, fell upon the rear of fifty thou sand Austnans. The battle lasted seventy-two hours. On the second day of the fighting the Aus rtians obtained such a position that they completely md murderously swept the bridge of Areola, wh...

The Life of a Millionaire. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 21 April 1894

The Life of a Millionaire. Less is known about Cornelius Yanderbilfc than about any other of America's famous! men. He is modest to the point of bashfulnesB. He never sees reporters. He never attends public dinners or other functions. He seldom goes to his clubs. In a word, he avoids pub licity, and keeps himself entirely in the back ground. He is a very busy man, and devotes his time to his great railway interests, his home, and his religion. Years ago he used to teach a Sunday-school class. Although he gives away in charity each year £20,000 or more, he is very exacting in all money matters. It is believed that he has added £2,000,000 or mor6 to the large fortune left him by his father. But even with this he is not the richest man in America. There are half-a-dozen others whose fortueea are larger.
