THE Watchman CIRCULATION 13,000. SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1902. A DISAPPOINTED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 16 August 1902

CIRCULATION 13,000. SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1902. A DISAPPOINTED MAN. Once more the name of Professor Rentoul, of Melbourne, fills the public bills as one whose conduct calls for something more than mere censure. There was a time when the Pro fessor occupied a leading position in Protestant circles, and was looked upon as a man to whom the future might hold the greatest possibilities of honours and usefulness. His best friends, however, must regret to see how wantonly he has dissipated such hopes, and reduced himself to the position of a mere platform buffoon, one who apparently is pre pared to sacrifice every principle which men of honor value to the hope of achieving noto riety by other and more dubious means. For it is evident that this desire for notoriety is the key note to all his latest vagaries. To achieve this he wallows in inconsistencies, and indulges in criticisms of his opponents which are more conspicuous by their coarseness and vulgarity, than for their * adhesion to the...

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE Roman Catholics of Australia who favor Home Rule. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 16 August 1902

Afi OPEJ* LETTER TO THE Roman Catholics of Australia who favor Home Rule. No. H. ttENTLEMEN,— Last week I addressed those who were born in, or have visited Ireland, reminding them, of certain facts with which they were acquainted, but which by their attitude towards the subject of Home Bule they appear to have forgotten. This week I purpose addressing those who have not visited Ireland, who are strangers personally to that land to which they claim to belong, but who yet have ranged themselves upon the side of those who would give to that country the power to govern herself—that is, Home Rule. The first point to which I would direct your attention is that you have obtained your knowledge of Ireland from a tainted: source. I take it that the majority amongst'you have been educated at Boman Catholic Schools, and been taught from a history book specially compiled for Boman Catholics. I have seen one of these books, and can safely say that every statement therein made regarding the histo...

THE CAKE OF THE HAIB. " My hair is grey, but not with years;" so, says lSyron, and how applicable this is to many of us who arc distressed by personal and busi ness worries. Still, no trouble ever yet ob tained for which seine relief has not been found. The hair is one of Nature's adornments and should not be neglected. Proper attention should be given to its preservation, just as you lind it neeessnrfcto attend to am- physical ail ment. CAPILLA "FT ATR.

"The Scottish Covenanters." The Rev. T. J. Curtis preached to a large congregation at St. Luke's Presbyterian Church, Redfern, on Sunday evening, 3rd August, on "The Scottish Covenanters," taking as his i text, Mathew xxii., 21, "Render therefore unto Ciosar the things which are Cassar's, aud unto God the tilings that are God's." Having referred to the " Confession of Faith," drawn up by John Knox and his colleagues, and on which was based the Act entitled " Ratifica tion of the Liberties of the ^LVae Church," passed by the Scottish Parliament in 1592, the preacher said that the Solemn League and Covenant into which the majority of the nation I entered at that period was in terms of that Act. The Covenanters vowed to refuse all company with and countenance of idolatry, I and that by the grace of God they would, with all diligence, devote their whole power, sub stance, and very lives to maintain, advance, and i establish the principles of the Word of God; ' declaring that according t...

A Missionary Letter from t'liiua. Clmrcli of Scotland Mission, .

As regards the gospel outlook everything beckons the missionary on, for in many districts especially in the country the fields are "white unto harvest." Hundreds of inquirers pour into the chapels, and the print ing presses are pouring out books (tracts and Bibles) by the thousand. Indeed, one mis sionary was telling us lately that in his dis trict they cannot get books sufficient to supply the demand. The . principal work of the past six months has been the establishment of our boarding school, which, after much preliminary work, was formally opened by ILr. Deans in tho presence of our felkrtv missionaries and the parents and friends of the sch...
