SHORT AND SWEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898

SHORT AND SWEET. Though tbe great Napoleon was not accus tomed to tolerate ' talking back ' on the part of -the people about him, several instances are on record in which he uot only forgave but re warded a certain degree of bluntness of speech from persons whose loyalty he had not reason to suspect. Victor Hugo tolls a story of Monseigneur Myriel, in which Napoleon a;ked, '* Who is that little man who is stariug at me r'' and was answered by Myriel himself : '' You, sire, are looking at a little man, and I am looking at a great man, aud it may be to tbe advantage of us both.' The story is declared to be true. The emperor mide a bishop of tho little priest the next day. It is related in a recent volume of Napoleonic reminiscences that as Napoleon was one day passing in review some of bis troops ht- came iu front of an old aud faithful officer, who, per haps, from want of brilliancy on the man's part.had never been advanced beyond the grade of captain, though he was well enough known...

Presently she turned and, seating horself at a table, com menced to read. She wns soon absorbed in her hook, unconscious of n fnco which wns pressed against the window, and of two dark eyes that were noting every detail of the well-furnished moms, returning always ton closer inspection of their young mistress, who looked very beau tiful in her gown of dainty silk with tho soft light of the shaded lamp fill lint upon her. Suddenly the face was withdrawn from tho window. A moment later asorvunt entered the room. ' A man wishes to sso you, ma'am, but will give no name,,' she said. ? ' 1 do not wish to be disturbed this evening. Tell him to call to-morrow.' The young woman disappeared, but soon re turned with the announcement that the man refused to go away, as his business was import ant. ' Show him in, then,' said her mistress, impatiently.

WALKING BIRTH CERTIFICATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898

WALKING BIKTH CERTIFICATES. It is quite common in Fiji and Samoa for a man to bear upon his arm or body a certificate of his body which is practically indelible. Tattooing is carried on in these islands to au absurd extent, and it is the practice to tattoo on the hind of a mother the date of her child ren s tiirtus. bomettmes, also, au enthusiastic father will tattoo the date of the birth on the child itself, and no matter hnw long it lives tho certificate will remain easily decipherable. In some adjoining islands every child is tat tooed almost from head to foot on its completing its twelfth year. The result is very remarkable, especially if the child is growing rapidly, ro that the spaces between the tattoo marks in crease in size year by yeai. Some men have had every available space on their anatomy tattooed ' year after yenr, until they appeared to be nothing but walking collections of grotesque signs and symbols.

THE CAPTAIN AND THE PIRATE. The tragic fate of Captain Wilson Hubbull} commander of a trading vessel during the; French warwith the United States, in 1798, i«t recorded by the historian of Stratford, Connec ticut. While returning with a cargo of molnsses from the West Indies, Captain Hubbell's nhipj was overtaken and enptured by a FrencR privateer. A prize-master and two French sea men were put on board the captured ship, and; the privateer sailed away in pursuit of other^ adventure. Only Captain Hubbell, one seaman,; tnd the cook were left on board the trading/ vessel. Although seemingly resigned to his fate, the, captain folt his situation keenly, and determined in some way to recover control of his ship.

Double Drowning Fatality [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 April 1898

Double Drowning Fatality We have to record a double drowning fatality, which occurred at Riley's Hill, Richmond River, on Saturday afternoon last, whereby a man named James Markham and a boy named Daly lost their lives. From the information to hand, which is of a meagre nature, it would appear that the boy and his uncle were fishing from the Government wharf, when by some means the boy fell in. Markham, who was a good swimmer, immediately plunged in to rescue the little fellow, and succeeded in getting hold of him. A young brother of the lad Daly ran up the bank, and meeting a man named Greenaway told him that his brother and uncle were in the water. Greenaway im mediately rushed to the wharf, but could only see the two hats floating in the river. The body of Markham was recovered in about an hour's time, but all efforts to restore animation failed. The body of the boy was not recovered until noon on Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Daly were away in Woodburn when the sad fatality oc curred. Ma...
