Lost and Won. CHAPTER XVI (CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

Lo$ and Won. OHAPTER XVI (Continued). I did not go to luncheon. A feeling of slupor and despair had come over me. My brain burned, my hands were icy cold ; at times a chill shudder came over me, and then burning fever ran riot in my veins. I thought then that I had reached the depths of human misery; I found there were greater denths still. The afternoon was warm and bright. I went into the library, one of the pleasantest rooms in the house, for the afternoon sun fell upon it. I found a book, but I could not fix my attention, and presently I gave up the effort and fell to crying bitterly over my hapless fate. I had not been there long before I heard footsteps outside. It was some one coming for a book probably, who would not remain. I did not care to be found weeping there, so I went to the great bay windows, and stepped into the recess behind the curtains, intending to go back to my own room as soon as the intruder had gone. Two voices fell on my ears— Gladys' and Daisy's. My cousi...

A Wonderful River. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

A Wonderful River. One of the famous curiosities of the Mammoth Cave is the Echo River, a body of water estimated to be some three-i'ourths of a mile in length, and from twenty to two hundred feet in breadth. Its depth at ordinary times is from ten to forty feet. Dr. H. C. Hovey, in a paper read before the American Geographical Society, gives a vivid description of the peculiar acoustic qualities of the vault by which the river is arched. ' Last summer in company with a party of four persons, no others being on the river at the time, we tried the effect of rocking the boat as violently as we dared to do, also hitting the surface of the water with our paddles, and in other ways making as much agitation of the stream as possible, and then await ing the result in silence. li T t.imprl'f.liia nnnnovf fVina nroatisrl and found its duration to be exactly half an hour.

What's in a Laugh? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

What's in a Laugh ? The voice is a source of fortune, but there are few men who, like Jno. P. Adams, a millionaire planter and steamboat owner of Arkansas, can claim to have made a fortune out of a laugh. Mr. Adams was a man of no more than ordinary ad vantages, physical or mental, but his laugh, frank, musical, and mag netic, had a charm which no one had power to resist. Before its charm all opposition faded, and enemies were converted intohelpers. Adams knew the value of his laugh, and frankly admitted that it secured him all his big contracts. When he went to Washington to secure the mail contracts, out of which his fortune was chiefly built, the officials came speedily under the magnetism of his laugh, and in spite of rival claims and , organised opposition the contracts invariably went to him. This laugh was of vital service at certain critical junctures in his life. At one time the steamboat of which he had charge was in danger of foundering, and a panic among the passengers w...

Lake Huron. An Englishman, touring through America, went on board a steamer late one night, and on the following morning, after walking on deck and looking round him, he stepped up to the captain and asked, 'I beg jjiuuuu, uui wuuiu y^u ivmuiy ken me what lake I'm on ?' ' The Lake Huron !' shouted Hie captain. The Englishman looked puzzled for a moment, and -'then, following the captain, begged again, 'Beg pardon, you said ? ' ? ' It's the Lake Huron,' roared the captain, thinking the man. was deaf or foolish. ' ' Yes, I know,' persisted the pas senger, 'but what's the name of the lake I'm orf ?' 'The Lake Huron !'. shouted the captain, incensed at what he thought gross stupidity, and he turned away to relieve himself by railing at one of the hands. The Englishman more puzzled than ever. 'The lake you re on is the lake you're on ! Of course it is ! The lake I m on can't help being the lake I'm on ! What impertinence! Let me look on my guide-book ; perhaps that will tell me.'

Putting the book hastily aside, the young operator, with the career of old Bond in his mind's oye, hastened to obey the summons. ' Young man, if I send a message now, when will it get there ?' asked the old woman. ' Where is it going, madam ?' ' Well, it is 'going to Aunt Jane, if you must know 1' snapped the old woman.

A rich bull is re corded of an alderman at cards, who, on inspecting the pool, found it deficient. ' Here's a shilling short,' said he ; ' who put it in?' At the time of the Home Rule difficulty, and when tho cause seemed to bo languishing, a meeting was held, and one of the speakers thus ad dressed tho audience : ' Friends, the cup of our trouble is running over, and it iB not yet full.'
