A Woman's Bible. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 March 1898
A Woman's Bible. . It .Is -ffrawsly.- announced.,-says ■" Truth;"!' that the Sisterhood of Advanced "Women are .compiling for pul.iIicn.1ion ; a- " Wo man's Bible," in which now readings of. those parts which, convey any .implica :-tiou = of: inferiority as applied to .what used to lie termed the " softer sex" are to be. given.. I,- am compelled t.o; admit: that the idea, if stupendous;: is. ably.i conceived,-- since, undoubtedly, the first i step towards, overthrowing .the absurd .1 notion of man's; superiority, which has i been prevalent for :so many- thousands of years, is to show that the .whole thing was a. mistake from the very beginning.: in fact that t.lie wily, creature -Man be-f gan his tricks so far back as when ,i " Adam dug,and-..Eve span."

Short Story. Smoking Flax. By MARTHA. M'CULLOCH WIL LIAMS. (Abridged from " Harper's Bazar.") "It was a. rath or hazardous* tiling— giving my daughter her name," Delight's mother said sometimes to her husband's sister as they two sat watching the girl Hit ahout, the house. . The sister answered usually r with . a little sniff which: she. masked with a sigh: "Well, no—not quite hazardous, hut it seems to me foolish. I hate those sentimental ■ names ; besides I do so want a niece called Violr.t.Caroline;" • Thou Mrs. Iveith, the mother, , smiled softly aud shook her head, murmuring-: " She is a. delight—you can;t deny that, Marlon. And 'shc~might sd easily hav,p boon—well, different.

What Is your name ? What Is your profession ?" .The ! :stress laid on the word "Now," and the ! itone in which it was uttered, had the effect of convulsing the auditors ; but ifc lj3 on record that most of the witnesses never seemed to perceive the little joke , at their expense. Kind Words.—Kind words producc their own iniane in men's souls—and ;i beautiful Image li Is. They soothe and comfort the hearer ; they shame liini out of Ills unkind feelings.

The Sketcher. Wives of " Great" Men [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 March 1898
The Sketcher. 1 Wives of " Gircat" Men All remind us—with apologies to Long fellow—that we cannot make our wives sublime, if we allow ourselves to be dragged along at breakneck speed by an admiring public and leave our better halves far behind. It was at a lady lion-hunter's dinner party. They had asked a cheap cele brity—I forgot liis name—and they had asked his wife, because it was, polite. The man had the mumps at-the last moment, and the wife came alone. I had to tako her down to dinner—a profusely powdered lady, who. wore a dirty pink silk dress, had pink rabbit eyes, and hair just half-way through some inex pensive dyeing process. She talked about her . husband from soup to ices, how often ho was interviewed by news paper people,; how he', had once been introduced to a Royal-Duke, how much lie- smoked, and .how loudly- he snored., At first-1, hadn't a. notion... who. her husband might be ; I only. knew ,that he had done something, ;a.ud whether lie, was1 - a.ctor, • champion' ...

The English Language. Will It Become Universal? [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 March 1898
The English Language. Will It Booomc Universal? More people sponk English than any oilier language now in use in tlie civil ised world, and (lie increase in the use of English is so rapid that it may ulti mately outstrip all the European lan guages collectively. At the beginning of the present cen tury twice as many people in Tpni-ope spoke French as English, and twice as many spoke German as English. More persons in Europe spoke ■ Italian than rCnglish, and, in fact, English : had ia subordinate rank. One reason of the rapid and general extension of the English language has been that colonisation' from Great .Bri-; tain has been very. much, -larger :ihim from -other, countries,; and the*; English have made their influence-feltmore de cisively. than liave'tlie people of other nations in colonies. ~ . . Thus, for instance, Holland has to day extensive colonies in various mparts, of the world. The present population of' Holland is 4,000,000, and of Ihe Dutch colonies 2-1,000,000. .But...

The attendance of buyers was not as good as usual, the cattle being rather young.and .too small for the general , run of our ,fatteners. This, together with the fact of; a large ! lot of cattle being advertised for yester day, had the effect of making prices rule somewhat lower than late rates.
