Do Animals Think? [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 9 April 1898
Do Animals Think ? jrax Muller is responsible for the following " Language and thought," he s'ays, " are Inseparable. Words with out thought are dead sounds ; thoughts without words are nothing. To think is to speak low ; to speak is to think aloud. The word is the thought incar nate." Every one who owns a dog. a cat, or even a parrot will note falli bility and thoughtlessness in such rea soning as the above. Xo mortal amongst us is always wise, and Max when he penned that sentence was no exception. Animals are not machines. A dog who acted as a mere automaton, wound up by machinery asv it were, would be a far greater marvel and miracle than the dog who possesses thought and reason, and who acts thereon. In what langu age does an animal, say a lion who has never heard a spoken -word, think ? It Is. indeed, a pity that even our great est savants and philosophers " blether" sometimes, and, worse luck, die and leave the " blether" behind them.—Dr. Gordon Stables. Prtnitd At Ac** Watt* ...

Raiment. Ladies' Hats. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 9 April 1898
Raiment' Ladies' Hats. Ladies' hats form the most recent ob jects of medical criticism aud attack. A doctor lately wrote to the newspapers to say that cases of inveterate headache in women could be traced to the wear ing of large hats. When the hats were replaced by presumably lighter ones, the headaches- cea|>ed. .What puzzles one in this case is the fact that ladies' hate as a rule are not heavy things at all. Indeed, many of them err on the side of giving too feeble protection to 'the head in ' cold 'weather; Headaches are a very curious and complex form of affection, since, they arise from very many different causes.

The New Cape. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 9 April 1898
The New Cape. Now that exaggeration is quickly dis appearing'from sleeves, the most extra vagant Item In dress is tlie cape.. It rio'ts in every possible fantastic form, arid Is overladen with glittering trim ! mings of every description. It too often | jutis; straight ou't from the neck in a rigid 'line, devoid of grace, obscuring I the dain ty curve of'the shoulders, and is furnished with an immense frill which' makes the short-nedked look apoplectic. The rampan't sequin is heavily shower | ed over the assertive cape of the mo ment, and -further glitter is supplied by.. jet, steel, silver, gold, and crystal. On the wUiole the fashionable cape com bines the maximum of weight and "-.stuffiness." albout the neck with the - minimum of protejctiveness.

Those of my readers who are thcinseives of ancient lineage may, therefore, appreciate the feelings with which I found myself last spring, l'or the first time as I then thought, under my ancestral roof. I had been summoned to Fullwood House by Sir Francis Flaming of that ilk, 'to whom 1 stand in the relationship of third cousin once removed.
