OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. flnii^ as u- tlloso iiv'''i lU tllu 'ther sociations are all pleasant nevertheless. In Engl.uul you delight to summon your family from the four quarters that vo'u may seo them once more beneath the old roof 'tree ; you scat them round the glowing yule log, or the nearest approach to it that your circumstances will allow. In this 'lair land, nn the other hand, people's .me »ic.it aim is to get as far away from the l.iinilv fireside as p-Mwiblr, for wi'th the thmm.mlt'i registering HOdcg. in the shade the vide l..g would be, to say the least of it, too aggres sive for endurance. Christinas from the religious and social standpoint is the same at both ends of the world, but climate is stronger even than sentiment, anil our Christmas dinner is taken wherever possible beneath the trees, with the snowy cloth spread on the jellow-brown grass, and ices instead of brandy sauce to accompany the pudding. Even our kissing has to be done without the aid of real m...

Grace— Ethel— for goodness sake suggest something, or we shall begin to fight. Mrs. Deslmrougli, what do you recommend for three distressed girls out of occupation? Shall we play cricket in the ball, or shall we try to mesmerise the cat ?' Mrs. Desborougb looked up from her needlework with mild reproach. ' You would bo sure to break something in Hie hall, Mabel.

PLAYING BRAG. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
PLAYING BRAG. That was a goml story told of an occur rence which took place in a stage-cnach one morning many years ago. A young, con ccitcd fellow, who had been monopolising almost all the conversation of the com pany, consisting of sixteen passengers, had been narrating the wondorful exploits he had performed, the prodigies of valour of which he had been the hero, and the won derful escapes of which he had been tho subject. At last he related one adventure in which he was the principal actor, which was so perfectly astounding, that a low whistle of incredulity was a simultaneous demonstration on the part of the passengers. All old gentleman, with a solemn visage end an ivory-headed cane, sitting in the back corner of the coach, here observed— ' That last adventure of yours, my young mend, is a very extraordinary one— very extraordinary. Ono could hardly believo it without having seen it. I did not seo it ; but I can relate a circumstance which hap pened in my family, anil in which...
A Christmas Bet. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
A Christmas But. At a Christmas dinner, a gentleman said he would make a bet that he would show them something no one had ever seen boforo, and no one would ever seo again. A bet was made. The gentleman took a nut off the dessert plate, and cracking it, held up the kernel between his finger and thumb. ' Now, gentlemen, no one ever saw that kernel before, and (swallowing it) no one will ever see it again. Fork out 1'
Neatly Put. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
Neallj Put. Tho barber had just finished cutting a gentleman's hair, who was grumbling and saying that it was not level. After the barber had given it an extra trim, the customer stood in front of tho mirror still trying to find fault with it. Suddenly an Irishman, who had been l inj^ ^ , , n ' Why the deuce didn't you bring a spirit level, matey ?' The customer made a rapid exit amid roars of laughter. In a Dublin ixilice-court the magistrate was about to pronounce sentence on an Irishman for the theft of a Christmas ' And is it upon tho oath of thim two witnesses that yer honor's going to condemn me ?' said the prisoner. ' Certainly,' said the magistrate. 1 Oh, miirther ! to condemn mo on tho oaths of two spalpeens who say they saw me take the Miird, when I can bring forth a hundred witnesses who will swear thoy didn't see me take it 1'
Christmas Cards. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
Christmas Cards. The Christmas card is the heir of tho valentine. The Christmas card represents the mechanism of sentiment in a state of adaptation to the wants of a busier age. It is all but uniformly politc-that is one thine in Us lavour; and it cuts the' sentiment short, which is another. Every year the artists of the Christmas cards produce new patterns by the thousand, for multiplication into millions by the printing press. It is said that we have ?JOU.tHHI varieties ol design in the English branch of the trade alone. One collector has already filled TIM) volumes with specimens, and liis library weighs And it is all tho work of the past century, and indeed the last haff of it. The Prince Consort is credited, or charged, with the introduction of the idea. He may have found it in embryo in Germany, anil brought it over. But honours are not easy in his claim. Sir Henry Colo is said to have given Mr. Horsley, K.A., acommission for a post-card as far back as 1846. In one corner they...
Unlucky Names for Ships. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
Unlucky Names for Ships. Nothing is ever likely to shako Uie n«yaj superstition that ships named »ft#jv things that sting are doomed to lot*. Besides the Viper and Oobra, U» 8«pent was loat with all htr orew ; Tb« W»«p wa( wreoked with heAvy, loss off Tory Island, and a second Wasp, a gunboat, disappeared in a typhoon, never to bo heard of again. In consequence of double disaster to ships named Wasp, this name has been struck out of the Admiralty list of available names. In the past we have Io3t a Rattlusnake, Gadfly, and Hornet, Probably a new Viper and a new Oobra will be built, but should anything happen to either of them the name of the other is almost certain to be changed by the authori ties, in difference to the sentiment that prevails afloat concerning unlucky name?. The only exception that obtains is the Resolution, The present ship h the tenth. No fewer than eight of them have had tragic fates, and the present one somo yrnrs since very nearly met disaster at sea. Most of t...

CHRISTMAS IN A HAPPY HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
CHRISTMAS IN A HAPPY HOME. By Amy Torrent'*:. It is much the fashion nowadays to run down Christmas ; to call it a non descript (lay, with a shrug of the shoulders ; to connect it with annual bills and solemn family parties. But for us — I speak for our large and nourishing family — it is the same its it was years ago, and we are the same — almost ! The conventional garb of increasing age is thrown aside ; we are children once more, and the same old programme is rehearsed — with a few exceptions. For instance, when we wen; young — I mean very young — one of the most carefully preserved rules for Christmas Eve was the perform ance of a sort of wild Indian war dance on one of the largest beds in the house. I remember we greatly revelled in that war-dance. I need hardly say it is not perpetrated now. The system of presents also is slightly different. It was the custom many years ago focV us to purclmse our present* en musse — that is, we would all journey out together hand-in-hand, and...
Why Not Be Happy To-day? [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
Why Not Be Happy To»day? I liave questioned my hopes of the future. I have doubted my dreams of the past, I have roamed through the realms of ambition, With visions too lovely to last. I have longed for youth's fondest ideals, But those phantoms are now far away, And at last fair philosophy whispers, Never be dull on Christmas Day. Though storm clouds may darken life's valley 'And each heart has some shadows of care)' The bright sun will soon gild the heavens, And thy troubles will melt into air. So what is the use of repining ? Will it bless or ennoble you, pray? No! - The world does not care for your whining, We must be merry on Christinas Day. Ah. the old world at heart is too solemn, For life is at best full of trials ; But try to be cheerful, 'twill help you, If you brighten all pathways with smiles. Then life will be well worth the living, Let kindness illumine the way, And with Hope's gilded banner before us We will be happy this Christmas Day.

A Fifty-cent Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901
A Fiftj-ccut Dinner. There was an ordinary down town once, where, for the sum of fifty cents, you were entitled to sit down at a table groaning with substantial viands, and eat as long and as much as ever you chose. A naunt man from Maine, a Solon Shingle kind of indivi dual, entered this ordinary one day, and proceeded to cram his fifty cents' worth. He went in for beef, and ho went in for mutton, anil he went in for turkey and cranberry pass. He was dead on squash. He devoured stewed tomatoes until a person might have thought he was Eve's bcothor in-Taw. He was a whale on sweet potatoes. He punished the squash, lettuce, and the cold sl.iugh in a dreadful manner. He roamed like a bee from flower to flower— from beefsteak to apple-pie, from Vanilla ice-cream to pork and beans, from succotash to meringues, from Phipps's 1mm to Indian pudding. He ate. like Gargantua, the Easting Man (when there, was nobody watching him). He ate until the guests re garded him wilh affright, and the wai...

A pretty home, parents who adore you, reasonable pocket-money, and last, but best of all, a lover, handsome, devoted and true.

' Dearest Svlvia, I fully realise mv cause for thankfulness for all the blessings I am the possessor of : perhaps more so than if I was more demonstrative, but every one to their nature. You are so joyous, and carry your heart on your sleeve, that it makes me almost as envious of your disposition as vou seem to be of good 'fortune. But we 'are losing time. We must not forget our errand. We are bound for the hollybush clump, which is loaded with red homes, while close by is a splendid bush of .mistletoe.

Chrislmas Fallacies. That if you do not eat some plum pudding and mince'pie on Christinas Day, you are sun; not to he lucky the next year. That you must not scold any servant who neglects his duty, nor lose your temper if the cook is carried upstairs to bed in a state of insensibility just before dinnertime. That you have no right to uke any means of redress against any drunken man who aunovs you, or to bo vexed with any ' de voted ' young gentleman in tho height of his merriment who chooses to insult you. That you must atille your indignation, for fear of being condemned as a man who has no bouI for music, if the waits jolt you out of your sleep every night for weeks previous, and then coolly ask you ' to remember them.' That you aro expected to pay all cabmen double their faro on that day.
