MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

MIsSOJiiLLANEOUS ITEMS- I Archibald Forbes on War Probabilities. — ' I have (writes Mr. Archibald Forbes, the famous war correspondent, in the North American Review) the confident anticipation that the present year will elapse without echoing to the clash of arms ; and I consider it very probable that 1895 will also pass without bloodshed.' His reason is that all depends upon Russia, and that Russia has not yet her supply of magazine rifles. ' A year ago there was not a magazine rifle in the Russian army, and the great majority of her soldiers are still armed with the improved ' Berdan,' a very inferior weapon both to the German and the Austrian rifle. But Russia retains still the warning memory of her fearful losses before Plevna from the ' Remingtons ' which America placed in the hands ot' the Turks, and with which her obsolete 'Krenkes' could not cope. After much tedious experimenting a year ago a definite selection of a weapon known as (lie 'three line,' rifle, and the productio...

An African Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

An African Tragedy. You will fiad mere tragedy than romance in Africa. Sometimes), far from the haunta of civilized m?n, lines of life drawn frotn other lands croos and recross, and the old story of human passions is told anew, says the San IVanciaco Ohroniclc Sometimes there are drnmatie incidents that in a country dE mails, telegraphs, and newspapers would be eagerly picked up and recounted in all their details, but in Africa they are never fully told, and are soon forgotten. This is such a story. It is true, and it did not happen ao long ago that the real names ran be used : The coaat of southeast Africa is one of the moat dangoroue i'u the world. Currents, con stantly varying both in direction nnd inten sity, curry the navigator far out of his course and often laud hiai upon acme reef or sand bar. Tho fact that the Robert Miller, from London for Bjmbuy, should have been wrecked near the Bay of Port Natal, was, therefore not strange. But what was unusual was the great loss of lif...

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

SYDNEY BOITDOIPk GOSSIP TBy Zara.1 Thero was quite a little excitement in the Town Hall on Thursday last, although the heavy rain prevented many visitors from appearing, when Miss Duff and her three sisters came to open the chrys anthemum show. They were accompanied by Miss Ottmann and Mr. Arthur Galton. Of course, there ?was no ceremony, nor did Miss Duff attempt a speech ; she and Miss Heather were presented with bouquets by the gentleman of the committee, and then they walked round the hall and inspected the exhibits. But it was a charming little novelty Laving the children of our Governor taking his place so gracefully. The table decorations this year were in much better style than in previous years. Many of us disputed the right of giving the first prize to the table with a mirror in the centre, for mirrors are quite out of date, and the roses, although effectively arranged, looked very stiff amidst a mass of green foliage. A table arranged with white cosmos and red salvia look...

Some Curious Superstitions. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 28 April 1894

Some Curious Superstitions. _ Young women of Germany have a snpersli- . tion that iE they bury a drop of their blood under a rose bush it will ever after insure th& experimenter a pair of rosy cheeks. Welsh mothers put a pair of tongs or a knife in the cradle to insure the safety of their children ; the knife is also used for the same purpose in some parts of England. The Grecian mother, before putting her child in its cradle, turns three times around before the fire whilst singing her favourite song to ward off evil spirits. A Kansas epicure has discovered that per simmons are no good unless 'possums have climbed all over the trees. Mediaeval doctors considered chips from the gallows on which somsbody had been hanged a good remedy for ague. The London mother places a book under the head of the new-born infant that it may be quick at reading. In Scotland it is said to rock the empty cradle will insure the coming of other occup ants for it. In Ireland a belt made of woman's h...
