" The teacher of a country school," con tinues the same correspondent, " once par. chased at my brother's store Artemus Ward's book as a prize to be awarded in his school. The pupil who received it was a young man, to whom the teacher remarked that if he wished some other book he could exchange it. A few days afterwards the youth came to the store and asked to have it exchanged. ' Don'tyou like it?' said my brother.

FABLES. (A good deal after the style of the Persian.) THE WOLF AND THE FOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882

FABLE S. (A good deal after the stUle of the Persian.) TME WOLF AND TIE FOX. A Fox who was making a journey across the country to see his grandmother once more before she died, discovered a wolf burying something beside the highway. Ho sliplpe into a fence-corner, and .waited until the wolf had passed on, and then crept forward and unearthed the object, which proved to be a dead chicken. "Ah, ha l" chuckled Reynard, "this comes from keeping one's eyes open as one travels. The hare would not have seen the wolf at all, and the oppossum would not have had the patience to wait for him to move on. It's a big joke on the wolf, and here goes for a. square meal." *The fox devoured his dinner with much smacking of lips, but hadscarcely finished when terrible pains began to rack his frame, and he fell down in the greatest torment, and was soon breathing his last. When the wolf re turned and saw the dead body of lecynard and the feathers' of the chicken scattered around, he scratched his car a...

MABSIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882

V MABSIE. ' Awholesome dread of prolixity, tempered by a not mnnatural desire to secure my read ers' immediate and undivided attention, im pels me to speak out like a man, andconfess, without farther reserve or circumlocution, that this veracious chronicle is neither more nor less than the record of as pretty a little love-affair as ever drew sigh from sympathetic bosom. Now, the. most interesting person age in a love-story is, beyond all. controversy, its heroine. And, the first duty incumbent upon the narrator of such a story is that of describing his heroine in the most glowing language his pen can command. Well, my heroine's name is Mabsie. Ahd, as a facetious young lady once informed the select but lim ited social circle in which I have the honour to revolve, Mabsie is " the short for Mab." This last announcement may seem trivial to the unobservant, but it is not so , for -it gives me the opportunity of explaining that my pretty Mabsie was really named after the famouslittle po...

All this time Bertha kept green the memory of her early friendship for Jack. While in Sydney, she was ever wondering what sort of a fellow he had become-whether he was as handsome and fascinating as of old. When she returned to Grit, she yearned to see the dear fellow, but for a time her longings were unsatisfied. Ones she asked her father about him, but he sternly rebuked her, and said that her mind ought to have been elevated above such companionship. But Bertha could not forget, and where there's a will there's a way; so she did manage to see Jack. It was difficult, however, for she never moved out now except in the carria...

ON?E day an editor, hard at work, trying to devise a plan to make his delinquent sub. scribers pay their dues, was called upon by a shoemaker, who called in to give the editor some valuable hints on running a newspaper The editor, overjoyed at the opportunity, gave the man his best cane-seat chair, honoredhim with a fresh cigar; and listened attentively to what he had to say. Quoth the shoemaker, as he lit his weed. "Your paper needs a hundred improved fa. tnures. You do not grasp the topics of the day by the right handle; you don't set the locals in the right kind of typo; your tele. graph news is too thin; even the paper itself is poorly manufactured, not thick enough and of too chalky white ; -you don't ran enough matter, and what you do run aint of the right sort; your idea about protective tariff is in fernally foolish, and your stand in the Conk. ling matter was bad.

Irce 4qairE ic PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND . . FRIDAY. ' FRIDAY, MAY 19, _1882. Mr.- Francis. on the Political Sitiiation.' THE speech of Mr. Francis, not delivered by that gentleman civa voce in the Assembly on Tuesday evening, owing to his illness, but printed and circulated amongst hon. members, proves him to be the Nestor of the Assembly. It does so from the fact that his remarks mani fest a tfio-ouh acquaintance with the requirements of the colony, and of the. possession ofthat srund practical wisdom which:is so mcic:bdemanded at the hands., ofthose whoar?hnow at'thehelmofaffairs. But, while the speechin question is char- 1 acterised bythe special qualities we have ascribed to it~it is at the same time as moderate in,:tone,._ and.'as .catholic in spirit, as it is comprehensive in its views.-- It-strikes us that - there is a judicial calm pervading its whole spirit and todie which distinguishes it in a most remarkable' manidr from those frothy and one-sided harangues which too f...

Miscellaneous. A FIELD OF BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 May 1882

fUiSCeellateou . A FIELD OF DATELE. I nAD my letter to write and post, and this involved a five.mile drive by moonlight to the rear across the most ghastly field which can well be imagined. I had some trouble in finding my carriage. I had left it at a well defined position on the battlefield of the day before, but to reach it I had to walk for more than a mile over a plain where the carcasses of men and horses were not merely thickly streown, but frozen into all sorts of fantastic attitudes. The thermometer had been sixteen degrees below the freezing point on the previous night, and men only slightly wounded, who had not been able to crawl to their comrades, had been frozen to death. One man was stiff in a sitting position, with both his arms lifted straight above his head, as though his last moments had been spent in an invocation, and it gave one a shudder in the clear moonlight to approach him. Others were crumpled up in a death agony, and so frozen. In places, many together, Fre...
