THE STORY-TELLER. THE FATHER'S SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

THE STORY TELLER. THE FATHER'S SECRET. "Iihdeed, father, William has told me nothing but-but--" "You may trust your father." Mr. Willis spoke in a tone so mild and so terder-so full of fond and earnest sympathy, that the fair girl's heart was opened, and with a beaming look she continued : " He has said but little to me, father, but yet I feel that he loves me." " And you, Caroline, were you dis pleased at the knowledge." " Displeased, father ?" returned Caro line, somewhat puzzled by the strange expression that rested upon her father's features. " Then you were not displeased." " 0, father, why should I be displeased to receive the love of one so noble and good.

THE HORSE AND THE LION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

THE HORSE AND THE LION. I was carelessly carrying my rifle upon my shoulder, as I pushed my way through the opposing thorns, when a sudden roar, just before me, at once brought the rifle upon full cock, and I saw a magnificent lion standing in the middle of the glade about ten yards from me; he had been lying.on the ground and had started to his feet upon hearing, me approach through the jungle. For an instant he stood in. an attitue .of l attention, as we were hardly visible; but at the same moment I took a quick but sure shot with the little Fletcher. He gave a convulsive boiunid, and rolled: over backwards-; be fore he could recover himself I fired. the left hand barrel. It was a glorious sight. I had advanced a few steps into the glade, adtd Hassan had quickly handed me a spare rifle, while Taber Noor stood by me sword in hand. The lion in the greatest fury, with his shaggy mane brisstled in the air, roared with death like growls, as open-,mouthed he endea vored to charge upon u...

CARBOLIC OR PHENIC ACID AS AN ANTISEPTIC AND DISINFECTANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

CARBOLIC OR PH?ENIC ACID AS -AN ANTISEPTIC AND, DISIN FECTANT. The disinfectant, or rather. antiseptic, properties of carbolic acid are very re markable.. The beautiful researches and discovei'ies of AM. Pasteur have shown that all fermentation and putrefaction is due to the presence of microscopical ve getables or animals, which, during their vitality, decompose, or change the organic substances, so as to produce the effects which we witness and carbolic acid exer cises a most powerful destructive action upon these microscopic and primitive sources of life. Carbolic acid, therefore, is an antiseptic and disinfectant much more active and much more rational than those genierally in use. Disinfectants,. such as chlorine, per-; manganate of potash, or Candy-fluid, operate by oxidising not only the gaseous products given off by putrefaction; but all organic matters with which they come in contact; whilst carbolic acid, on the con trary, merely destroys the causes of putre faction, witho...

SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

SCRAPS. LITTLE PREBENTS.--"I will give youmyhead." said Montesquieu, " if every word of the story I have related is not true."-" I acceptyouroffer," said the president, "presents' of small value strengthen the bonds of friendship, and should never be refused." CnoxIrG.-The nearer young men approach manhood, the less liberty they allow their necks. On " entering the world," a dandy submits to almost as much choking as felonsdo when going out of it. Queer that there should be such a close connection between gentility and strangu lation. TRIED AND ACQUITTED.--A person, looking over the catalogue of professional gentlemen of the bar, with his pencil wrote against the name of one who was of the bustling order, "Has been accused of possessing talents.". Another seeing it, immediately wrote under, "Has;been triedand Acquitted." EarnPAsIs.--The force of emphasis in giving meaning to a.sentence is well illustrated by a brief colloquy we overheard between two per sons the other day. 'f Do you...

FALLING LEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

FAiLLING LEAVES, They are falling, slowly falling, Thick upon the forest side, Sever'd from the noble branches, Where they waved in beateous -pride. They are falling in the valleys, Where the early violets spring, And the birds in sunny Spring-time. First their dulcet music sing. They are falling, sadly falling,. Close beside' our cottage door ; Pale and faded, like the loved ones That have gone for evermore. They are falling, and the sunbeams Shine in beauty-soft around .; Yet the faded leaves are falling, Falling on the mossy ground. They..are falling on the streamlet, Where the silvery waters flow, And upon its placid bosom Onward with the blue waves go. They are fallingin the churchyard, Where our kindred sweetly sleep ; Where the idle winds of Summer Softly o'er the loved ones sweep. They are falling, ever falling, When the Autumn breezes sigh, When the stars in beauty glisten Bright upon the midnight sky. They are falling, when the tempest Moans like ocean's hollow roar, When ...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR,-- . Respectfully, I take grave exception. to a pa ragraph in your last week's Summary in which you tell your readers-that the Chris tian Churches in Western Australia, of ALfL denCmiuations re ceive aid from the State. As a Nonconformist of the " Independant " Order, and a member of the " Congregational " Church here,. I beg leave to deny your statement, and to inform you that from the. days of the Great Protector, Oliver Cromwell-and those of Milton, Bunyan, and a cloud of witnesses, we as a sect, have never re ceived aid from the State, but from that period down to the present time, have ever steadily, constantly and consistently, repudiated it. In this our Colony, we have three Churches those of Perth, Fremantle and Bunbury;, each of which depend for success, support, and progress upon the free-will offerings of the people. So far as I can gather, as a religious body. we have never sought:for, or received the slightest assist ance from Imperial.o...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

THE Charon, Freeman, Master, arrived on Thursday morning from Nicol Bay after a passage of .18 days, three of which were lost watering in Flying .Foam Passage. She sailed three days before the Liberty, by which vessel the Mails will be con veyed. Having to °call at the Ashburton, she will ip. all probability be delayed several days.. We.regret to say that 'the results- of a four.months search has not proved remu nerative either to the 'Proprietor of the Charon,' or the other boats that arrived late on the fishing grounds. However dis couraging, -the fact ,by no means extin guishes the hope that these fisheries un der bettermanagement willyet prove a suc cessful industryand profitable occupation. Shells have been found on the reefs, and it is the opinion of many that beds of them exist in deep water. The further North by East the adventurers went the better the quality of: the shells.

In our Summary for: the last English Mail a paragraph, relating to Mr Glad stone's resolutions for the disestablishment of the Irish Church, stated that " all the christian Churches in this Colony accepted State aid." We admit that we erred in including the Congregational Churches in this Colony, in fact we were alluding to Establishments, and not to Churches in the spiritual acceptation of the term. We a re fully aware by reference to the Con grgational Churches Year Book, that the scriptural right of every Church to main tain perfect independence in the Govern ment and administration of its own affairs, and therefore that the union shall not in any case assume Legislative Authority or become a c...

REVIEW. W. A. Church of England Magazine FOR JUNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

REVIEW.. W. A. Church of En.gland fag azine Fox JuxE. The Magazine for this month, is, like the last, without the portion that is printed in Eng-. land. This we find is not intentional but acci dental. • As we stated in our notice of the Ma gazine last month, we are of opinion it would be an improvement, and conduce to the success of the publication if the whole of the Magazine could be got up in the Colony. It is of course a question of expense, and wehope the increase of circulation and advertisements will, enable the Editor to do without the English part, which, while very usefill. is scarcely of ; cha xaeter suitable to Colonial readers. We have. frequiently in these columns com mented on 'the question of Education in this Colony, and pointed out the defects of the system-which is expensive and inefficient.

FRIENDLY BENEFIT SOCIETIES. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

FRIENDLY BENEFIT SOCIETIES. To the Editor of: The Herald. SIR, One of the most pleasing signs of the times in old England, is the determina tion of the industrious classes to elevate their social status by frugal andprovident habits, cn 1 by joining Friendly Societies, which afford protection from those ordinary casualties incident to all, but which are felt more severely by them. And to those among us who know that self-reliance, independence, and morality are thereby promoted, and that the higher classes also derive indirect advan tage from Benefit Clubs, it is highly gratifying to observe the working men of Fremantle are forming' such an institu tion. . A few practical hints therefore on the operation of'Friendly Societies, it. occurs to me, may not be without their use just now. Societies of this character have lately engaged public attention :at home, and parliamentary inquiries have been made into the abuses which have crept in, or invaded their management; and legal attempts ...
