PLUMP AGAINST A BIG FACT [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 13 January 1898

PLUMP AGAINST A BIG FACT It is not propei ly any part of my business to enforce lessons in ethics ; therefore I commonly leave that re. siKinsible task to whose vocation it is. But no man can continually write on the subject which constitutes the bin- den of these assays without now and then running plumb against a mighty fact in morals. If you will be good enough to read the following shoit letters I will then try to show why I ' was moved to apeak as I huye spoken. " My daughter Annie Jane'," writes that young girl's mother) ".now five years of age, was a fine healthy child up to March 1891, when she begun to sicken and fall away. She had no appetite aud every puticle of food she took came up. She lost strength rapidly and within a foi tnight she was thin as a rake, being not much e'se than skin and bone. For days and days she bid in a half-conscious con- dition, 8caicely moving hand or foot, and to all appearances lifeless. 1 lud a doctor attending her for four weeks, and he said...

A Good Word even for Satan. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 13 January 1898

A Good Word even for Satan. ' Some people are so finely organised that they never say an evil thing of anybody. A quaker lady had- a daughter, and a young lady friend was visiting her for a few days, and she admired the mother very much for the equable and kindly spirit she manifest- ed. The visitor mentioned it one day to the daughter, who replied, " Yes, I neve*» heard my mother speak ill of any- body since I was born. If people have unpleasant peculiarities the mothcrper mits them to rest. She talks only of that .f which she can speak kindly and well. I think if the evil one were spoken of rashly and unfairly in her presence she would take his part." At that moment mother passed through the room, and the visitor said to her ; " Ruth, what does thee think thy daughter says of thee ?" " I hope nothing bad.". " She says if the Evil On_._Jiitn_-__Ji_-tr_>r____spaI_-iin- o£ iili-_in_IK in thy presence thee "would take his" part." Without slacking her pace as she went through the ro...

BOOKMAKERS RECALLED. , It waa decided by a far from etrong majority at the annual meeting of North Queensland Racing Associa- tion delegates held at Charters Towers last week, to continue the embargo last year laid by the Northern Association upon all bootmakers, who, by special resolution were prohibited from fcettiftg or calling the odds in any registered tee- ing enclosure.

MILK. WHAT IS EURE MILK? MORE POST ENTERPRISE. Directly the Posl became aware of the fact that Messrs W. J. Munro" & Co. were about to take a third hand in the local dairying business, the thought struck us that as the milk industry was assuming such vast pro- portions in the colony, it. would be well to write to the highest European authority, and obtain from- him -the latest scientific knowledge in refer- ence to milk. We did so, and on the 14th August last wrote to Professor Abercrombie, D.D.L.P.E., Edinburgh, who is acknowled gedto hold a strong lead as an authority on matters affect- ing the supply and adulteration of basic foods-in fact this renowned savant is the only scientist in the world who has attained the distinction of "Doctor of Lacteal Philosoph}-." In writing, we deemed it well to be concise, and with a view to getting directly and at once to the heart of the subject asked the Professor to' kindly write for publication in the Cairns Morning Posl a special pa...

SPEAKING OF LONG AGO. To-day, ¡is I "pen these lines, one picture from the lung-vanUbcd past rises in my memory as cleaily ¡is though it hung on a wall before my very eyes. It is of a boy about four- teen yeais cid, propped up in ¡i »ieit ann-chair wjth pillows and bed- clothes and gazing through a window. He is just c mvalescing after a long and dangerous illness, and is sti 1 thin, pale, and weak. Tho strong anns of lils loving father have taken bim from tbq bed and placed bim snugly by the window in order that he may seo his-pláymates at their gaines in the snow ; for the time is mid- winter. They wave their hands to bim and he waves his baud feebly to thurn. . The ecene is from my own boyhood, forty years ago.- What magic has conjured it up now ? Only ¡i sentence from a letter. This: "I was so weak that, for yeai s I had to be carried upstairs to hcd.'^_ A hdy speaks thus of bet- giil hoodr What.» pitiable thing.

Mrs. Keating's License. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 13 January 1898

". Mrs. Keating's License. Mrs Keating has" been granted a license for her ne\v hotel to be erected opposite the wharf. "This paper opposed the license, on the ground tli.it the hotel was not required, as there arc plenty of licensed houses in Cairns at the present time without licensing new hous'-s. We did not know Mrs Keating' or Mr Keating in the" matter, w ich was in no way a personal one, but simply argued that as the pirillie demands wera amply provided';for at that end of Abbott Street by Messrs "üonegan, Walters, Hannaysee, and Mrs S. Byrnes there was no'need to infest the town with still another hotel. As Mrs or ¡\lr Keating has got the ' license we simply say we regret the action of the Bench, who I ave shown themselves oblivious to tim best' interests of the town, and further have exhibited a remarkable arnount of ability in'the art of going back on oneself. For all thal, it is not inconsistent on our part to exfend a welcome to Mr and Mrs Keating. They have scored, and w...

Telegraphic. Wednesday's News by Wire. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. BRITISH AND FOREIGN. LONIW, Wed. The officers in Marchahifs expedi- tion in the Congo State^ have made startling revelations regarding the cruelty with which natives were treated. Carriers were beaten until they could not stand, and in two instances they were held over a fire and nearly burned to death. Many of the chiefs were detained without food or water in order to make them provide carriers for the expedition. The object of the expedition is to unite Obok and the French Congo. Prince Nagatusky, speaking at a re- ception accorded him in Nagasiki said that the policy of Japan \va.s to go on increasing her Navy until she became the England of the East. Every opportunity of adding to the Navy would be taken, and special facilities would be offered japanese who wished to become seamen. The recent purchase of two 19000 ton cruisers would be followed' by the purchase of several lronplads and cruisers, and when Japan felt hers...
