The Sphynx. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 14 January 1899
The Sphynx, Near the Pyramids, more wondrous and more awful than all else in the land of Egypt, there sits the lonely Sphynx. Comely the creature is, but the comeliness is not of this world; the once-worshipped beast is a de formity and a monster to this genera tion, and yet you can see those lips, so thick and heavy, were fashioned according to some ancient mould of beauty-some mould of beauty now forgotten - forgotten because that Greece drew forth Cytherea from the flashing loam of the tEgean, and in her image created new forms of beauty, and made it a law among men that the short and proudlywreathed lip should stand for the sign and the main condition of loveliness through all generations to conime. Vet still there lives on the race of those who were beautiful in the fashion of the elder world, and Christian girls of Coptic blood will look on you with the sad, serious gaze, and kiss your charitable hand with the big pouting lips of the very Sphynx,. Laugh and mock if you will at...

At the time appointed he was usahered into the presence of Her Majesty, and after shaking hands, the Queen remarked, cordially- 'Oh, Mr. Elliott, 1 have to thank you for tihe two beatttiful collie doga you sent me,' To this gracious remark the con. fused farmer replied 'Touts, wumman, hattld yar totngtue, .
