Ballington Booth, the commander of the Salva tion Army of America, plans to establish several ' Shelter farms' before long near New York city. Upon these farms social outcasts are colonized, and there ' shelter work' is provided for them. Sev eral of them are in successful operation near English and Enropean cities. A Sunday school teacher was trying to impress upon his pupils the care of the Deity tor all living things, great or small, and getting to the perora tion of his address he said : ' The Lord who made the mountain made the little blade of grass. The Lord who made the ocean made the pebble on the shore. The Lord who made me made a daisy.' And then he wondered why the class burst into laughter. The Cossacks and Circassians of the Russian army are mainly Mohammedans and consequently strict teetotalers.

Payment by Joke in Lieu of Fee. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
Payment by Joke in Lieu of Fee. In the course of my academic career at Oxford — now nearly forty years ago— I became acquainted with a Mr. Quicke, a well-known dentist, practising in St. Aldate's Street. He had a keen appreciation of humour, and although possessing a somewhat serious-looking countenance, dearly loved a joke. Having occasion to call upon him one day, he, in the course of conversation, told me of a lively patient who had secently paid him a visit with a view of beneawfng by his (the dentist's) profes sional skill. ' What college did he belong to ?' was my inno cent inquiry. ' He had finished his curriculum of studies, and needed no further polishing at Oxford,' was the laconic reply of the dentist. ' The patient I am alluding to hailed from the Emerald Isle,' con tinued Mr. Quicke. ' He entered my consul ting- 'room, hat in hand, with : — ' The top 0' the morning to ye, sor, an' I got a bad tooth, an' no comfort can I get short of a bottle of brandy, an' I've got one ...

On a Rational Training of Juvenile Minds. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
On a Eational Training of Juvenile Minds. [By Fkithiof.] Perhaps there is no social problem the satisfactory solution of which is of a more vital importance to the normal progress of our race than the practical training of the minds as well as bodies of the growing generation. Albeit in this century, great Btrides have been taken towards the accomplishment and improve ment of educational systems, for a thorough and practical training of the growing masses in most civilized countries, — still there remains obviously much to be done in the way of promoting universal, practical (above all), and also theoretical training, before the multitudes shall be suitably prepared for such fundamental social reforms as hitherto, by many, have been stigmatized as Utopian dreams. It is true that the present inequitable distribu tion of 'labour and its reward, — and also the rapid increase in population, and consequent augmentation of labour and keenness of competition, raise formidable obstacles to ...
LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
LOCAL HEWS. Thh Hallewell Party's Concert. — A fashion able audience assembled in the Town Hall, West Maitland, last evening, to enjoy the concert given by the Hallewell Concert Party. Both the East Maitland Liedertafel and the Philharmonic Society were well in evidence. As was anticipated, the concert proved a great treat. The programme opened with the glee, 'Awake, iEolian Lyro,' Danbv, suns by the company without inatrumental accompaniment. The harmonious blending of the voices and the careful maintenance of the parts were such that the rendering had all the effect of an instrumental performance, with the feeling added which only the human voice can give._ The tenor o£ the combination, Mr. Barrett, sang himself into acceptabloness by his presentation of Robertson's ?' Because I love her so,' and was heartily recalled. ?Hia number in the second part was ' Believe me if all those endearing young charms,' but he ?substituted 'The Minstrel Boy,' which was a fine rendering, suiting hi...
A Page from the History of the Indlan Mutiny. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
A Page from the History of the Indian Mutiny. ' When joined to Brigadier Rowcroft's Field Force, the Bengal Yeomanry were the heroes of a sensa tional incident which threatened to end in their annihilation. The rebels had been defeated in a slight engagement, and were falling back, when suddenly afc some distance on the right appeared an 18-pounder with a small escort of Sepoys. One only of the two squadrons of the Teomanrv ? 122 sabres — was deemed sufficient to deal with the menace ; and after undergoing one or two dis charges the squadron was close on the gun. Tefc the mutineers, with muskets levelled from the shoulder, stand like posts— a few strides more, and bayonet and sabre would have crossed each other — when, lo, in an instanfc, up sprang hundreds of Sepoys on every side, a3 if out of the very ground itself. They had been crouching, in fact, like tigers, prepared to spring from behind the village and the thin line of their front ranks, by which we were decoyed. Ifc was now...
NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. The inquest in connection with the recent tragedy ? at Young Wallsend was held yesterday. Mr. Cronin represented Mrs. Hyde, and Sub-Inspector Saunders appeared for the police. Mainly the evidence consisted of that of the police and medical man, whilst Mrs. Hyde gave her version of the tragic occurrence. The evidence was a repetition of that which has already been reported. The verdict of tho jury was ' that Mrs. Hyde fired the shot in self-defence.' The woman was brought before the Wallsend Bench, and Sub-Inspector Saunders then applied for her release from custody, which was granted, and the woman is now free. There is no doubt the conclusion of the case is popular. All who have known the deceased speak in terms similar to those of ' serve him right.' The work at the pita for the past fortnight was iu some instances an improvement on the fortnight previous. Five of them worked full time, which, was 9 days owing to Christmas intervening. At the recent meeting of the Labou...

GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
GRETA. Obituary. — Mr. Jesse Hawkins, sen., an old and respected resident of this place, passed away to bia Test at 6 o'clock on Wednesday evening. Mr. Hawkins had passed the alloted span of man's years, he being turned 73 when he died and, truth to say, there have been few in this town who have been so deservedly respected as the old resident; just gone. He has reared a most respectable family here, and his sons, like himself, follow the occupation of carters, and are liked and respected. Tha deceased had been ailing for over two years, but it was only on the first day of this year that the final dread summons came in the form of a paralytic stroke, and- since that time he has continued to sink, no amount of care serving to retard the end. He had a peaceful and happy death. The funeral took place to Lochinvar on Thursday and was largely attended; we counted 17 vehicles and 12 horsemen, but very many more would, no doubt, join en route. In the death of this old resident, another of ...
