Shocking! THE ETERNAL THRONE MADE IN GERMANY." [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
Shocking! THE ETERNAL THRONE .' MADE IN GERMANY." The editor of this paper eight or nîné years ago was compelled td stand his trial before His Honor Judge Cooper, charged with " blasphemous libel." Our playful and prayerful little effort was not a patch upon the fol- lowing, which we extract from a recent Sydney "Bulletin." And yet we filled in the committal interim with a weighty bail tethered round our apopleptic neck, and if we had'nt taken the common-place precaution to square the jury, would assuredly have trespassed upon Her Majesty's hospi- tality from any period ranging from 6 months to z years. On the present occasion this paper is not sneakingly inferring that the editor of the " Bul- letin " should be favored with an in- timation that the Chief Justice wants him,- but we just feel like pointing out that the spirit of the hour is evidently more libéral than when our august and reverend friend, Mr Leather Livered Chester, P.M.-, suffered at our hands the mortification of an...

"He's a Good 'Un." [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
.'He's a Good Un." Finding myself in the company of a well-known pugilist recently, I deter- mined to profit by the occasion, arid raised several knotty points for his advice. " In the event of being suddenly attacked, say, in a street row, what would you advise me to do, I asked him. " First," he-replied, " takéj off your coat: The other chap does the same, and while his arms are behind his back you knock him down. He'll not get up again ; he won't want any more." - ~ ? " Bnt supposing he does get up and goes want some more?" " Then you hook' it ; he's a good 'un."

A CURIOUS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
A CURIOUS STORY. Connected with the murder of . Mr Terris( there is (writes the » London "Spectator ") ; a very curious story of prevision/ ' Mr Fredrick - Lane,r Mr Terns' understudy,; declares that on the night before " the murder he dreamt that he saw Mr Terns' lying on the landing surrounded by à crowd, and that he. was raving! The story is a vet}' curious one: Even, granted that the dream was not a mere coin- cidence, "it does not prove positively a prevision of,the future. . Suppose, as is quite possible, that Mr Tenus' mind was occupied with the thought, '1 hope that mad fellow I had to refuse any further help to will "not take it into his head to revenge himself by murdering me.' If that thought did occur, there is no reason, under: the theory of , thought-transference, why it should not have been transferred from Mr Terriss' to Mr Lane's mind.
HER BICYCLE BEFORE LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
HER BICYCLE BEFORE LIFE. .' Had it been a man," snorted the large and athletic doctor, " I should have known what to do. But woman is a conundrum in herself and in a majority of her actions. I had been attending a family for weeeks, I patch- ed the husband up after his almost fatal misunderstanding with a tram-car. I saw the young wife through- a serious illness: After months expired, I sent a most reasonable bill, with a modest hint that I was in need of some money. It seems that I could not have selected a more inopportune limefor this gentle dun. " The husband was lamenting the aggregate of family bills and the paucity of the family purse. There was a continuons and unending call ; upon his slender resources that had become maddening. He would pay the doctor who had been faithful and considerable, but there he would draw the line for some time to come. They must retrench. l"\Vheu the wife came to settle she was depressed.

Short Commons in Cloncurry. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
Short Commons in Cloncurry. There is no doubt (says the Clon- curry "Advocate") thc outlook to face on Clohcu ry at present in regard to food, is a serious one, owing ta the very small amount of any description of food on hand in the local stores or held by private people. Thc drought of the past three years has seriously militated against communication, and this year has crowned it. There are no teams now travelling towards this centre from Hughenden, although some of the teams have been on the road since last August ; they are now camped and thc horses turned out on the .Woolgar tableland. There are a fejv' teams with general supplies coming from Normanton, but have not yet.reached Donaldson, 60 miles dis- tant. This is the state of things in dry seasons ; now, if rain falls in any quantity, and a good wet season (which we all pray for) intervenes, the residents of this town and district will be in a difficult fix for food. There is no rice, no great quantity of flour, sugar, or t...

JUMPING SEATS IN RAILWAY CARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
JUMPING SEATS IN RAILWAY CARRIAGES. . : A decision of Judge Emdens at Tun- bridge Wells County Court last week will meet with the approval of colonial rail- way travellers, and chc^k the practice of "jumping" seats which ^si> .frequent-.. Passenger No. 1, leaving his.carriage at\ Tunbridge.Wells for a'moment, deposited, on his scat a magazine and umbrella. Passenger No. 2, on the guard's invita- tion, lo " take your seats," took the seat of passenger No. 1, and on being, asked to restore it to its rightful owner, de- clined to stir. Thereupon, passenger No. 1 took the law and the obnoxious "jumper" into his own hands, and ejected the latter. Litigation ensued. No. 2 brought an action for ten guineas damages. No. 1 counter-claimed for the same sum. The judge held tint there was obvious necessity for passengers to leave their seats occasionally, that there were sufficient signs cf prior possessiou ou the seat when it had been appropri- ated, and that the owner was entitled to use r...
FRUIT AS FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898
; FRUIT AS FOOD. During hot weather many persons worry a lot as to what they shall eat, drink, and avoid, but a great number take things just as they come, making little difference in ; their regimen whether the thermometer stands at Sodeg. dr loodeg. The latter class, those possessing strong digestive powers, are to be envied ; yet, although no ill results are at one3 observable, it ] is admitted by nearly all that good j ripe fruit should, especially in hot weather, form a good proportion of our-daily food. ? ft has been stated that tru£t>anana and the date alone contain ample nourishment for the support of life. The banana has of nitrogenous "matter +.82 parts, of sugar 73*9, and -of fat 0*63 to every roo parts. The fig con- tains 58 per cent of sugar. Although the bananais, when in proper condition, a most wholesome article of food, it is questionable if its value is not seri- ously impaired by the time it reaches the bulk of our Victorian consumers. Gathered when quite green...

** MORNING POST." "Neither ty fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone?' Thursday Koala* 7«b- V7, 180S MULGRAVE CENTRAL MILL MATTERS. "When a lot of little curs make a practice of yapping behing a big St. Bernard's heels, the latter can afford to look benevolent and pass on. As with canine, so with human nature. No man ever yet raised himself head and shoulders above his fellows, but what the herd of pigmy men looked upon such elevation as the special act of Providence to enable them to get a better shot at him with their splenetic missüs." The above was intended as portion of an essay of which the object was to ad vocate the Tolstoian contention that the best.thing- that could happen lo thc human race wu its utter extinc- tion, but it will serve to point a moral in another direction, (and that moral we now proceed to point with the finger of scorn..
