" CHRISTMAS HISTORY." [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
'CHRISTMAS HISTORY.' ^ ? WHILE we are enjoying the 'merrie Christmas-tide it ia interesting to gather and examine a few out of the many historical 'threads and thrums' which are so largely woven into the elements of the season. Ever new as it seems, alwavs associated with the evergreens twining about its brow, Christmas is old, old, and the locks beneath the ivy and holly are hoary. We have no certain traces of the cele bration of the Nativity, or birth of Christ, until nearly two hundred years after His death ; but we find with that celebration the singing of carols or sacred music began. These were also sometimes called 'mauger songs,' particularly in Germany, where also first appeared the 'Christ tree,' adorned with nif e for the household and friends. Iu England 'merriment and piety were pleasantly combined' in these songs, but in Franoe the carols were far more guy than sacred. In the year 1525 tlie holiday lime in England was known as the 'still Christmas.' for owing to the il...

HOME, SWEET HOME. — »»♦ The story of the circumstances of its' composition, with the verses as ori ginally written and as presented to the public, also verses added to the sheet miiBic by Mr. Payne for his relative, Mrs. Bates. John Howard Payne, the author of ' Home, Sweet Home,' was born in the city of New York, June 9th, 1791, and died at Tunis, April 9th, 1852. Among the many compositions of which he was the author, was an opera entitled ' Clari, the Maid of Milan.' The music was composed by Sir Henry Bishop, and includes many beautiful melodies.

Mr. Payne relates that when he was travelling in Italy he heard a peasant woman singing a sweet and tender air, which made an instant impression on his mind. He induced the woman to repeat it until he could write down the' notes.

THERE lived in this good city onoe a man of eighty-seven, Brimful of gouty aches and painB, just ripe for death and heaven ; And as it was good Christinas Eve he thought he'd try his luck By hanging up bis stocking, for he still loved fun and pluck. Next door to him a maiden lived, a lovely, charming miss ; She had but sixteen Bummers seen, was full of life and bliss, Her eyes, her cheeks, her hands, her face — well, they were just perfection! And she hung up her stocking too, with bright and gay reflection. On ChriBtmas morn that aged man his stocking full he found, With plenty more' of other things pinned up and nailed around. r r He wiped his specs five hundred timrs, his laughter turned to screaming, On opening such queer packages ; he thought he mimt be dreaming. A. bustle, hair-pins, bracelets four, gold garters, eighteen veils, A gross of gloves, nine bonnets gay, a caBe to shine the nails, Bix dresses, stylish, flowing trains, two muffs, and seal-skin sack, Two parasols, a d...
Home, Sweet Home, as originally written by Mr Payne. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
Home, Sweet Home, as originally written by Mr Payne* 'Mid pleasures and palaces tho' wo may roam, Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. A charm from the sky seems to hallow ub there, Like the love of a mother surpassing all other, Which, seek thro' the world, is ne'er met with elsewhere. There's a spell iu the shade where our infancy played, Even stronger than time, more deep than despair. Chorus. — An exile from home, splendor dazzles in vain, Oh I give me my lovely thatched cot tag.: again. Ihe birds and the lambkins that came at my cull, Those who named me with pride, those who played by my side. Give me them, with their innooonce, dearer than all. The joys of the palaces through which 1 roam, Only swell ray heart's anguish, there's no place like home. John Howard Payne, the author of ' Home, Sweet Home,' was for years without a homa/'and used to hear his own song sung in oitiea when he had not a shilling to buy his next meal or a place to lay Iiib head.

SCARFPINS FOR THREE. A CHRISTMAS STORY PART I. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
SCARFPINS FOR THREE. A CHRISTMAS STORY Part l r was Christmas Eve in name only. By nature it was far from being so. The howling of the winds, the drenching rain, alter nating with cutting flurries of sieet, suggested anything but theseason of peace on earth and goodwill to men. These found me silting, a prey to gloomy reflections, in my lodgings, smoking, and raging at the hard fate which had kept me in town over the Christmasholidays, while all myfriends were off in the country enjoying the hospitality of that prince of enter tainers, Dawson. I was particularly unhappy over my enforced absence from the gaieties of the Dawson house party at Belmore, for the very good reason that I had laid my plans to put a long-deferred and exceedingly im portant question to Dawson's sister Helen during my contemplated stay there ; and ray unhappiness was further aggravated by the fact that I had reason to believe that my friend and rival, Gerald Parsons, who, more fortunate than I in having no bus...
The Farmer's Last Penny [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
The Farmers Last Penny The farmer went out of doors in the warm spring morning and looked around, A pleasant breeze blew across the fields, bringing, a soent of fresh green grass and of first cuds swelling on the thorn and briar. The spring oorn was -all sown ; harrows with sharp teeth had mixed earth and seed ; and the big smoothing roller had done its final work. The farmer's thoughts went on to a time when hotter, sunnier skies would ' stretch above the cornlandB, and lighten up. , the toll-ioad whioh ran like a white line through the little highland strath. He pictured the fields covered with yellow grain; the reapers thrusting in their soythes ; the great waggons bearing home thoir precious loads ; he heard the shouts as the hut sheaf was gathered in— and then the old man sighed, tears wetted Mb cheeks, long unused to tears, and at length he sobbed aloud, ' Ay,' he sadly said, ' 'twill a' be there, the bonnie hairst wark, bit I'm fearing' no for me.' ' He turned and went inside...

Part ii. I gazed in astonishment at my visitor for a moment, and then rose to welcome him. ' Why, Gerald,1 I said, ' what does this mean ? I thought you had gone to Belmore.' ' I'm on my way there now,' he re plied, gaily. ? I have a cab at the door. It is too wet to bring it up with me, so I told the Jehu te wail outside I've stepped in here to get you and insist upon your coming with me. Dawson told me some cockand bull story about your being too busy to get off. He doesn't know as well as I do- The idea of a writer ever being too busy. Why, it's almost funny, Jack, really.' ' It is strange,' I replied. ? Writing is such easy work. Nothing but dipping a pen in ink and then wiggling it over a sheet of paper— but tell me, how is it that you are not already at UCIIII'JIC T ' That's simple enough,' said Gerald. ' A man can't be at two places at once. I am here, therefore I cannot be at Belmore.' 'Nonsense!' said I 'I thought you were going up with the others at three o'clock.' ' So I ...

Ringing the Changes. AN AUSTRALIAN HORSE PASTORAL. BY C. H. S. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
Ringing the Changes, AN AUSTRALIAN HORSE PASTORAL. Br C. H. S. One steaming Sunday morning, we was riding slowly down— TLat's me and Joe from Walwa— to Tarioola town, Ani the chapel bell was ringing, as we cleared the bit of scrub Thai bounds the parson's paddock, at the hack of Riley's pub. We hadn't got a dcenar*, and we're anxious here to state We'd break no Sunday liquor laws— whilst Kiley kept a slate. This Bilcy seemed obliging, till he mentioned ?Toe'd a bill That stretched instead of shrinking up and settling in his till. So Joe to head him off talks horse, and, giving me a wink, Says, 'Kiley, what was you before you took to selling drink 1 I've heard as how you used to own a ringing good old gray: The Badger, quite a champion in the steeple chasing way.' First Riley wrinkles up his lips, half whistles, then hetpoke: ''Tis a very tinder topic, bhoys; that gray horse Bint me broke. But take a nobbier to his name, and while I tell ine tale, Just wish with me them Ooulia coves ...
"Merry Christmas." [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
'Mmy Christmas.' ' AIerrie Christmas,' with all Its tradi tional associations and rich remembrances is once more at oar doors. Not, as in England, do we, who are Australians by birth and adoption, celebrate this time honoured Season. Instead of the ice and snow of the dear old land, we ure surrounded by all the physical peculiarities of a torrid clime ; but, accompanied by many blessings which our grand old parent-land lacks, we have just as much reason to hail the advent of Christmas. West indeed is Australia I Remote from all those broils which embitter life, and make man akin to the Furies, the horrors of war have never plagued our quiet shores. Peace, with her olive, has been a perennial guest with us ; and, whilst many parts of the earth have, during the past year, suffered from plagues and afflictions, Calamity has passed us by as though uncon Fcioua of our existence. Christmas ! Season of mild mirthfulnexs and mellow jollity I Good time, beloved of all men ! when the twelvemo...

A "NEW" WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
A 'NEW' WOUIAh. ' You talk of marriage as if it were some thing to be dreaded ; you might be going to be hanged, lass, instead of married,' he said, angrily, easting wrathful looks at the curly head of a young girl who stood at the window. She was pinning a fly down by one wine as if the fate of a nation hnno on its escape. ' Wait a minute, wait a minute, Jack. This fly represents me if I marry yon pinned down, can't get away. See how it struggles ; and it never wanted to go till it felt itself bound ! ' and a merry shout of laughter rang out across the garden. The fly flew off, and the curly head turned round and revealed a mischievous pair of blue eyes and naughty, petulent lips, which contrasted oddly with the words the girl spoke. '1 do want my freedom, and I don't want to be tied down to humdrum matri mony, even with you, dear old boy. I like being engaged, and we agree so well (especially in letters !) but you see, Jack, women have altered now, and one hears so much against ma...

THE MAGNETIC CARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 19 February 1896
THE MAGNETIC CARD. If we should tell you that a postal card may be turned into a magnet, you would be surprised, no doubt, and yot it is true. Let us tell you how to do it. The experiment that we are going to describe should not be made in damn weather. Balunce a walking 6tick oil the back of a chair and tell tlie spectators that you are goiug to make it fall without touching it or the chair. Having thoroughly dried a post-oard, preferably before an open fire, rub it briskly on your sleevs and then hold it near one end of the stick. The stick will at once be attraoted to the oard, and will follow it as if it were a magnet. As it moves it will soon lose its equilibrium and fall from the ehair. Almost any kind of wooden rod will do instead of the walking-stick, and almost any kind of card. Of course, you under stand the principle of the experiment. By rubbing the card you waken electricity in it, and it thuB becomes a sort of mag net, with the power to attraot light bodieB.

Then a drop will fall from the opposite end, and a gentlo osoillationwill begin, which gradually increases in speed until the little figureB at the end will perform tho rooBt surprising antios at their game of soe-saw.
