Is a Novel "A Pack of Lies?" [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 30 November 1898

Is a Mel 'A Pack of Lies?' ? * v ? ? ? ? The late Mr. Anthony Trollope was an official of high standing in the PoBt Office, and it was onoe his painful duty to give evidence in a case in which a letter-carrier was accused of stealing money out of a letter. This case was as plain as a pikestaff. The marked money was there, and the author of 'Barchester Towers ' swore to having seen it put in the letter. The young and enthusiastic Irish counsel who defended the prisoner for a time looked blank enough, but at last a happy thought struck him, and he proceeded to cross-examine the dis tinguished novelist. 'Pray, Mr. T., are you not a writer of works of fiction ?' 'Yes.' ' And are nob works of fiotion all u pack of lies V ' Really, my lord, I appeal to your lordship's protection.' The benoh is dumb, and the advocate goes on : ' Are you not a writer of works of fiction, and are they not all a pack of lies?' ' Well, they are not expected to be strictly true ; they are imaginary.' 1 No preva...

EGYPTIAN PRINCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 30 November 1898

EGYPTIAN PRINCES. In 1880 the Ithedivo Tewlik determined to appoint an English tutor to tnke.chiirgo of tho education' of the L'rinces Abbas and Mohammed 'AH; his sons, who wero then little boys of six and fivo years old. The gentleman selected was Mr. Alfred Butler, a Fellow of ? Brasohoso ''College/ Oxford. Ho was summoned ' to TVvnf. hv tnlnnrrnnli. whence it might havo been inferred that his presence was required with some urgency, and that tho Viceroy was impatient for the instruction of his sons to begin at once.

REID'S REVENUE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 30 November 1898

REID'S REVENUE « ? e ? Never before in any Austra . lian colony has political life been so prostituted as was the caEe in the Assembly last week. Recently Mr. Reid de clared that, owing to the nuni !-:«»? r\t KnA efwenno r.lirnmrr! which the colony had to battle, its finances wanted repairing, and,- fearing to attack the land exemptions, he does a pretty political somersault and decides to secure revenue, through the Customs House. But George this time reckoned without his host — there was one joint in his political tail that refused to work without oiling, and a stoppage of operations was threatened unless some lubrica tion was applied. The Labor party — composed of men sup posed to represent the working classes— could not conscien tiously countenance fchp inflict ion ot duties that would most ly .effect waee-earuers — so they , said — and, Premier Hoid, find ing that he was likely to bo de Bertcd by his scorbutic s^rfs when the pinch came announced that he would let the cocoa and ...
