WILD DOGS IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
WILD DOGS IN PARTS. So many startling events happened from day to day during the Reign of Terror that the apparition of wild dogs in 1'aris is commonly overlooked. But it was quite natural. Thn greater part of those grandees' who fled or went into biding kept dogs, and -very fow of them were able to make any arrangement for the poor beasts when they left home. The dons, abaudoned, took to tho streets, of course, and shortly they began to congregate in two packs, one occupying the Champs Elysees and one tho Bois do Boulogne. Soon they be came a public danger. Carlyle pokes fun at Santerre, the brewer, who proposed a law that all dogs should be banged ; be bad not noticed the paragraphs in the newspapers telling how people had been attacked in tho Champs Elysees. At length the situation became really grave, as is easily understood when thousands of starv ing animals have to tind subsistence in a starv ing city. Many of them were wolf hounds aud of powerful fighting breeds. So in Septe...

THE PARISH BANG-BEGGAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
THE PARISH BANG-BEGGAR. On week days the beadle in some parishes superintended, when necessary, the use of the duckmg-stool and the branks, or gag, for feminine scolds — brutal methods of punish ment which have long been abandoned. Auotber duty of the beadle was the 'whipping of vagrants. It was this which earned him, in the Midland districts of England, the old name of ' bang-beggar.' The whipprng-post was a painfully frequent ornament of English towns and villages in the ' good old times.' John Taylor, the Water Poet, writing in 1630, says : In London, and within a mile I ween, There are gaols aud prisons full eighteen. And sixty whipping-posts and stocks and cage s. And these posts were very freely used. In old municipal and parish accounts throughout the country there are innumerable records of payments to parish beadles for the whipping, not merely of criminal offenders, but of mere vagrants, or wanderers, as they were oftea termed. Nearly three centuries ago the magis trates o...

A VALUABLE PARCEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
A VALUABLE PARCEL. A man in rustic attire shambled along the streets of Berlin, carrying in his hand a packet which was sealed and addressed, and with an inscription in the corner to the effect thatit con tained £25 in notes. A passer-by, who was struok wilh.the sheepish look of the man, asked him what be was looking for. By way of reply, the countrymi! n held the packet under his nose and asked him to read tho address, as he had for gotten it and was unable to read himself. In a tone of pleasurable surprise, the other replied V ' By Jove, the parcel is for me! I have been expecting it ever so long !' ,:,V The messenger appeared, satisfied at bavins, accomplished his mission, and added that he wanted half 'a crown for his trouble, which was paid on the spot. The new owner.of the parcel at once retired to a dark corner to examine his treasure. He found nothing but a couple of sheets of printed paper, and in the middle a white label with the single word ; 'Sold !'

ATHLETIC LUNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
ATHLETIC LUNG. ' Athletic Lung ' is a medical term used to designate the abnormal development of lung possessed by somo athletes. The condition is produced by tboso forms of eiercise that call for the constant 'use of the kings at their highest power. Tho resnlt is an enormous development of lung capacity. Such men, upon giving up their active athletics and taking to sedentary pursuits, aro peculiarly subjent to pulmonary complaints. The over-developed lung is only used in part, and the unused cells easily fall a prey to disease when once an athletic lung has been restored to health. The wise physician forbids any violent athletics on the part of the patient, for a second attack is likely to be followed by collapse. The term athletic heart is applied to a similar condition of the heart produced by like causes.

A CLEVER SPENDTHRIFT A good story is told of a young man who, besides being of the spendthrift order, is a splendid mimic, and can imitato his father's voice to a nicety. Not long ago the young man wanted, with out delay, an amount of money, aud ho knew that the father would treat a request for the same with cold contempt. Waiting till he kuew that his father wnuld be away, ho went to a telephone call-room and ran up tho office, call ing for tho cashier. The cashier was forth coming, and wheu he was at tho other end, the young man imitated bin sire's voice. ' 1 say, Blank, if that scapegrace of a son of mine comes round and asks for twenty pounds, don't give it to him. Only give him ten pounds.' The cashier promised that he would fulfil the commands. Not long after the son called at the office and demanded twenty pounds. He was refused by tho conscientious cashier, and. nu purentlv in auger, the young man contented himself with the ten.

HE WAS SURE OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
HE WAS SUKE OV IT. ' My father,' said Simpson, solemnly, '? was more sensitive to colds than anybody I ever knew. The slightest exposure gave him a cold.' 'That must have been very disagreeable.' ' Indeed it was. He never could sit near a draught for a minute without catching a cold. 1 remember on one occasion he was sitting in the house of u friend when all at once my father began to sneeze. He insisted that there was a draught in tho room. Every effort; was made to discover where the draught was but in vain. The doors and windows were closed and there was no fireplace, but my father kept on sneezing and insisting that there must be a draught in the room, and so there was.' 'Whetewasit?' ' It wns'found that the stopper had been left out of the vinegar bottle.'

The Federation Bill. Motives of the Opposition. On the 3rd of June the electors will havo to decide whether or not this colony is to fedorato with ita neighbours for all time. In a general kind of way, it may bo said that the people of all Australia are unanimous in tho opinion that Federation is desir able, but tho range of opinion as to the extent and nature of such a union is innui'.e, and numbers of people aro prepared to oppose any kind of Federa tion that does not agree with their own particular views. But reasonable people aro ready to deal with tbo measure in a spirit ot give and take and to have regard only for tho groatost good of tho great est number. Tho completion of tho work of the Convention iu the preparation of a bill that is soon to be submitted to tho popular voto has come at a timo when the electors of Now South 'Wales wore preparing for a general election, and when tho country was already filled with tho din of the old provincial party cries of Free Trado and Pr...
A BATCH OF FAMOUS SPENDTHRIFTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
A BATCfl OF FAMOUS SPENDTHRIFTS. Henry VIII. had a remnrknble facility for getting ri'l of money. Ifo wpenfc hi a very few yearn the hug« sums which his father hnd accumulated, tho Field of tho Cloth of Gold costing nlon.;, it is estimated, a quarter of a million. Charles II. of England, too, was a spendthrift of no mean standing, and his prodigality wns so great that ho all but ruined Kngland. But it is in the middle of last century, and from that time onward, that wo find the best examples ot the spendthrift fraternity. The first Earl of Carlisle, for arample, was dis tinguished by his unbounded profusion, and in tho end ruined himself. And no wonder, for the following story, told of him by Osborne, is but a sample of his everyday prodigality. It wns not onoiigh for tho ambition of this nobleman that his dinnorNhouUlplcam; the taste alone —the eye also had to bo gratified. Tho company, there fore, wns ushered in to a table covered with tho most delicate art and in tho greatest pro...

THE SETTLEMENT OFDEADLOCKS. Iheke are features of the bill which must bo con sidered apart from the conflicting interests of tho town and country, or of tho different colonies, and which affect tho people as a whole. Of these feat ures, it appears to us that the most objectionable aro tho clauses for tho settlement of deadlocks between the two houses of the Federal Parliament.
