A RARE DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
A RARE DISEASE. According to a New York eorrrspondent, a ease of ' acromypalia, the rarest of all known diseases,' is now engaging I he attention of the College of Dentistry in New York. A man who rejoices in the Polish name of Molanski is ' undergoing a strange bodily mctnmorphoFis. His bands and feet are lengthening, and his face is gradually assuming the characteristics of the past age. The degeneration, or, as some doctors think it, the retrogression, of Molanski is steady, and bids fair to result in the evolving of the long-sought ' missing link.' Why tbe dentists should make this strange prodigy their own is not obvious.
WITH A RING THROUGH HER NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
WITH A RING THROUGH HER NOSE. General Sir Hope Grant, on his return from the Indian Mutiny, in which bo greatly dis tinguished himself, was invited to dine with the Queen at Buckingham Palnco. After dinner he had a conversation with Hi r Majesty. Referring afterwards to tbo interview, Sir Hope said ; — ' I was very much tempted to relate to the. Queen nn incident connected with the Rajah of Mysore, but thought it better taste to forbear : ' He had given a splendid gold cup. value £1,000, at a race meeting. On this cup was an equestrian statue of Her Majesty, and, nnxioua to do English royalty full justice, he had caused the head of the. Queen to be encircled with a turhnn, and a ring to be passed through ^ier nc)ae — the highest hononr awarded to native Indies.' ^^__^_______— _______

' Yes ; but surely, Albert, you are not going to sneak of your gifts as if — ' 'It was young and speechless at the time ?' ' Yes.' with increasing wonder ; ' and it has never been out oi this parlour. ' There are no other young ladies in this house ?'

ANCESTORS TO ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 April 1898
ANCESTORS TO ORDER. It is related of a celebrated literary man that he once thought it desirable to have ancestors. He therefore walked straight to Wardour-street. where one can usually pick up an ancestor of the Crotnwellian, Queen Anne, or early Georgian period, according to fancy. Select ing a portrait of a Cavalier in half armour, with features not unlike his own, the author made a bid for it, but considering the pricu unreason able, said he would think the uiiutfir over. A fortnight afterwards, the ancestor fever renew ing its grasp upon him, he went again to Wardour-street, prepared to pay the dealer his price. Tho pi ture prove:! to have been sold, and, of coure, to au unknown purchaser. A few days later still, hu went to dine with a certain Cabinet Minister, and was very much astonished at finding tho imlentical picture in the dining room. Seeing that it attracted his guest's attention, tho Minister said. ' Very good picture that ! Cum« into my hands in a curious way. Portra...

Fighting the Capitalists. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 19 April 1898
Fighting the Capitalists. President Steyn, of tho Ornngo Froo Stato, speaking at Bloemfontein, warned his hearers against the capitalists, who woro sucking the life-blood from the voina of tho working man. Capitalists in tho fii«ter Ropublic, whon they could not get their way, shut down the mines. Looking north, there was a great Imperialist, undor tho guise of philantrophy, calling the working man into the land to slave for him, for he had a monopoly in tbo country. Down south the great Imperialist had tried to ingratiate himself into the good books of tho Afrikander Bond, Ilia only object being tho hoarding up of money bag.s. Just now he was an ulraIm perifilist, but if ho did not get his way he would bt;como a Republican. 'Hero in this land,' continuod Mr. Steyn, 'tho raco feeling has been engendered by tho great Imperialist who has traded on die national feeling of people all for the ssko of riches. It is against tho capitalist that wo have to light.'

Goraki Highland Gathering. We clip the following pars from tho R.R Heeald : — The sister rifer was woll represented, 83, in,' addition the ' pipers three,' dancers, athletes etc., we noticed many old familiar faces, among them being tho ever- welcome Mr. J. A. S. Murray (wnose aDsence would create a blank), Mr. D. McDonald (Maclean), Mr, J. McDonald (Cowper) and others. There were, however, a few defec tions in tho ranks, and two of these — viz., Messrs. W. Muiray and Cooper Wallace— caused a feel ing of deep regret in the minds of those who had long been associated with them, and had learned to regard their presence as a matter of course. In Highland games ' Big Donald' was, as usual, invincible, and it is evident that, if a fair number of entries in events in which the name of McLennan figures is to bo secured, the handi cap system will, in future, have to be resorted to. Everyone is not o, champion at this sort of sport, and does not possess a champion's record, and a glance at t...
