ESSAYS AND SKETCHES. ON THE UNITY OF LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 April 1885

ESSAYS AMD SKETCHES* On the Unity of Language* • Language, in its most general s&nsej may be define A as that faculty of the mind wlaich enables one animal to communicate an idea to tlife brain of another animal, and is pos sassectv at least in a modified form, by many of the higher animal organisms. Taken in its more restricted sense, and viewed from a mechanical stand-point, it is an art; and may be cultivated to a particularly unlimited extent towards perfection. It is the art of so enunciating the articulate sounds of the human voice as to create in the mind of the person Hearing them a definite idea ac cording to conventional rales previously ac^ quired. Ideas may be accorded in a tangible form for future reference by means of pic tures or arbitrary signs made on various substances such as metals, stone, wood, paper, etc. The power of articulation must have been the first discovery mado by man. Modern philological research tends, in a most remarkable manner, to verify t...

THE SILVER LINING. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 April 1885

THE SILVER LINING. (Tjtbhe's never a clay so sunny - But a, little cloud appears : 'There's never a life so bappy . v Bub has had its time of tears; Yet the sun shines out the brighter When the stormy tempest clears; There's; never a gardon growing , With roses in every plot; .There's never a heart so hardened . But it has one tender spot; Vie have only to prune the border' To find the forget-me-not; ' •There's never a cup so pleasant . But has bitter with the sweet; ^here's never a path so rugged That bears not the prints of feet: •And we have a Helper promised . For the trials we may meet. There's never a sun that rises But we know 'twill set at'night; The tints that gleam in the morning At evening are just as bright ; . ■And the hour that is tho sweetest Is between the dark and light. There's never a dream that's happy But the waking makes us sad; There's never a dream of sorrow But the waking makes us glad:' We shall look some day with wonder At the troubles we have had. v There...

ELECTRIC LIGHTIN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 April 1885

ELECTRIC MeHTING. The lull in the recent excitement concern ing electricity as a rival illuminant to gas may be traced to two main causes. One of these is the circumstance that many un deserving inventions were pushed to the front by unscrupulous or ignorant speculators. Companies were formed, only to come to grief after a brief period of existence. In this way, capital was soon frightened away from electric-lighting schemes, however pro mising they might be. The other cause of depression was due to the siringent rules adopted by tho Board of Trade to prevent the recurrence of a monopoly such as is pre sented by the gas and water Companies. These rules have now been considered by a Committee, with Lord Bury as chairman, and this Committee has given in its Re port. Several modifications are recom mended by which the Electric Lighting Act of 1882 may be made workable; but it is doubtful whether the gasCompanies have any need to fear a rival until some much: improved method of producin...

A NASTY OLD WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 April 1885

A NASTY OLD WOMA& We learn from a London paper that some uncomfortable revelations were made at the Gateshead Police Court in the case of a woman who was sentenced to three months' imprisonment on a charge of stealing cats. It appeared by the evidence , that the pri soner was in the habit of stealing cats,which she killed, skinned,and then sold as "Scotch hares" at is. 3d. per cat. She seems to have found the industry si, profitable one ; for she had,- it was stated carried it on for about three months, during which period the con sumption of cats in the neighbourhood was large, great number's of these animals having been eaten by various people on the supposition that they were hares. .It may be well imagined that the deluded customers of this unprincipled deal er in cat's flesh are much disgusted at the trick that lias been played upon them. There are parts of the world where cats are esteemed a delicacy. It is mentioned in Cook's Voyages that the inhabitants of the island...

j LETTEES WITH HIDDEN MEANINGS. A young lady, newly married, being obliged to show her husband all the letters she wrote, sent the following to an intimate friend:—■ " I- cannot be satisfied, my dearest friend I blest as I am in the matrimonal state, unless I pour into your friendly bosom, which has ever beat in unison wibli mine* the various sensations which swell With.the livelist emotions of pleasure, my almost bursting heart.

A TERRIBLE REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 April 1885

A TERRIBLE EEVEME. A new form of murder, find that of a most ingenious kind, has been invented aud car ried out by a Pole, of the name of Bazinski, at Philadelphia, a traveller for a firm who manufactured a compound called celluloid. He and Rosenthal, a German, were rivals for the hand of Uebecca Ivavoritsky. The girl preferred Rosenthal, and Bazinski swore he would be revenged. Outwardly he re mained good friends with his successful rival, and after a time presented him with a handsome meerschaum pipe. Rebecca, on being told by her lover of the gift, was sus picious of this generosity on the part of Baz inski, for he was generally close and stingy in his ways, and warned Rosenthal to see that there was no trick in the affair. Rosen thal examined the- pipe, but could see no thing unusual in it, and on reaching home' filled it with tobacco and lighted it. A min ute latter it exploded with fearful force, completely shattering the face of the unfor tunate man. Bazinski was arrested, an...

SHE WANTED COMEDY* Three mouths ago,- when a new servant girl came to a well-to-do family, the mis tress said she desired to post the girl in advance on one ceratin little point, She and her husband belonged to an ama teur theatrical company, and in case Jaue heard any racket round thef house she must not imagine they were quarrelling— they would simply be rehearsing their part. The play began on the third evenitg of the girl's engagement. The husband taunted his wife 'with extravagance, and said she pic yet! " poker" for money, and chairs were upset and footstools were kicked around, and threats were made of 'going home fco mother.' Next morning the mistress said to the girl:— ' Did you hear us playing our parts in The Wronged Wife last night ?' ' Yes'in !'

A HOTEL ENTERPRISE, The 'manufacturers of Nottingham are watching with interest the development of a novel enterprise which has been undertaken by Mr: John Cooper, of that towu. Affected by the depressed condition of trade, and see ing no immediate prospect of improvement, Mr. Cooper conceived the idea of transport ing to; America an entire factory—machin-; ery, operatives* and all...

CROOKED ANSWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 April 1885

CEOOKED ANSWERS. The knowledge attributed to the proverbial •" schoolboy" must always have amazed any .person of only ordinary intelligence. Re cent sebool examinations Lave, however, re pealed a depth and variety of information possessed by juveniles, which bids fair to make the coming schoolboy throw his pre decessors quite into the shade. Amongst '.-.many st'artling items pf. information may be instanced that " a fort is a place to put men in," and a fortress " a place to put -women in." " A famine m the land," it appears, is what made the Tower of Pisa lean ; and " cos the moon is soon changin," is the reason why it is of a different gender from the sun. The surface of the earth consists of land and water, "said a bright youngster ;. but when asked, " What, then, do land and water make?" he instantly replied, " Mud." In many cases, it is evident that the pu pils do not understand what the questions mean. When inquiring, " What comes next to man in scale of being ?" it is rather ...
