' I want you to do some thing for me, Mr. Norton. You told me, you may remember, when my father's will was read, that if I needed a friend I was to come to you, and I have taken you at your word.' ' I will do all I can for you, Lady Maude,' he said. He looked puzzled and perplexed. 'Will you sit down and tell me what you wish ?' But I stood before him, the fire of lever in my brain and in my veins. 'No ; I am too restless, too anxious to speak. Answer me quickly. My father, the late Earl of St. Ne...

What is a Hareorama? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 30 November 1898

What is a Mareorama? An interesting novelty at the Pariti Exhibition of 1900 will be the Mareor ama, which will give visitors ihe illusion of a voyage by steamer from Marseilles .to Constantinople, with calls at Tangier, Algiers, Naples, Venice, Alexandria, and Smyrna. They will be standing on the steamer, which will appear to be in the aea, even lo the rolling of- the veBsel and the Bait hreezes. The unrolling of the oanvasea will make them think the ahip is moving, the principle being the same as that which miikoB railway passengers in a standing train think they are in motion when another train passes. The voyage of the Bteamer will be diversified by various scenes, such as meeting a fleet of warships, a tempest, with thunder and lightning, and sunrise and so on, besides other cui ious incidents. Thus, at Naples, for instance, natives will climb on board and perform the dances of the country.

A New American Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 30 November 1898

& New American Industry. It is reported that a couple of enter prising individuals from Kansas recently arrived at Freeport with the object of acquiring a piece of land for the purpose of breeding black cats on a large scale, They proposed to commence with 1,000 cats and 5,000 rats, the latter to serve as rooa ior cno iormer. .accoraing co cal culations, the cats would increase in number to 15,000 in the first twelve months, and to 225,000 during the second year. The economy of the design is ingenious, it being intended to devote the carcases of the cats killed for the skins to feeding the rats, and, as the latter increase five times as fast as the former, a perfect cycle — of small limit, it is true — of cat-rat-cat and rat again would go on till doomeday. As no men tiou is made of providing other food for either of the animals involved, it would appear that the establishment ia intended to be self-Bupporting, and that not only have the formulators of this scheme discovered...
