Flying Without Wings. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Flying Without Wings. 1 'One of tbe moBt dramatic accidental positions I ever witnessed,' said a com panion. upon one occasion, ' was observed m the island# of the South Pacific. I was wading over the reef near the Tonga Islands, with some men and natives, when one of the latter, a few yardB away, suddenly tdiew some coral back into the water with a crnBh, which caused a number of big, Bnarp-noBed gar-fish to start out of the water. They bounded away like arrows, tipping the surface with their tails, seemingly gaining fresh lm impetus this way. . ' Tho fish came directly at us, and I in stinctivelv dodged as one shot over my head. But iuBt beyond me was a native, carrying a flat, oval basket that looked more like a shield than anything else, and, seeing the fish, he threw it np, catching it fairly and squarely. The bill penetrated the basket, and, as the man braced back, he looked for all the world like a warrior receiving an arrow or spear ?upon his shield. I afterward learned that...

Should Journalists Marry? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Should Journalists Marry ? , Journalists, it ia said, are to our science loving generation what priesta and teachers were to the generations before seience was born. They are our prophets, onr apostles, oar teachers, our enthusiastic or judicial inapirera and exemplars. To men of this exalted calling, absolute independence of mind and clearness of judgment are indispensable. Can the journalist be clear in judgment and independent in mind if he ' liven to write, and must write to live' ? He may if he alone be dependent upon bis writing ; but when there is a wife at home, and, above all, children whose shelter and table moy be tbe price of a too transparent clearneBB of judgment and a too decided independence of mind, a new element enters into the calculation. Wherefore, it is urged, the journalist should not be exposed to these tremendous tempta tions of self-emasculation. At twenty he is a man. His mind is for the righting of hoary wrongH and i'or the building-up of newer and nobler...

A Serious Joker. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Serious Joker. ? ' The old collar-button joke is no joke in my case,' said the man who bad occupied the upper berth in a railway sleeping car. 'I lost mine when I got up thin morning. Saw it fall. Got down to the floor and looked everywhere for it. Couldn't find it because there wasn't any bureau in the car for it to roll under. You know how it feels- to have to use a pin for a collar-button, of course ?' ' No,' said the other passenger, a solemn, weary-eyed man in a snuff-coloured suit. ' I don't.' ' You don't often lose a collar-button, then ?' ' I never lose one.' ' When it dropB out, you never have any trouble in finding it ?' ' It never drops out.' 'You never have to get down on your hands and knees and feel all around under the bureau, and get pinB and carpet tacks stuck in your fingers, hey ?' ' Never.' ' Perhaps you don't use a collar-button ?' ' I always use one.' ' And — you never lose it?' ' Never.' ' Um — may I ask what your occupation is?' ' I write jokes for comic pa...

A Tragedy of Despotism. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Tragedy of Despotism. In T'hiers's 'Consulate and Empire,' a new edition of which is being brought ont by Messrs. Chatto and Windus, the author gives the following graphic account of the assassination of Czar Paul, the madman who ruled over all the Buesians, and who had become a close ally of the First Napoleon, Paul's policy had exasperated the Russian aris tocracy, and his crnelties had aroused the people : THE PRINCIPAL CONSPIRATOR. There was at that time, at the Court of Bussia, one of those men, dreaded by all, who never shrink from the perpetration of any audacious deed. Count Pahlen had served in the Busoian army with dis tinction. He possessed a commanding person, and concealed beneath the rough and sometimes famil iar manner of a soldier a deep and acute mind. He was endowed, moreover, with singular audacity, and an imperturbable presence of mind. As governor of St. Petersburg, entrusted with the police of the Empire, and initiated, thanks to the confidence of his master,...

A Change of Front. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Change of Front. Not so very long ago a large band of cattle were resting up a few mileB from Vinita, in the Indian territory, before being driven across the line to Kansas. The boys belonging to the outfit were a particularly hard lot, and in six weeks no less than five cooks had left the camp in disgust, as no matter what they did or how well the food was prepared) the men were sure to growl. The head boss was in a quandary when the fifth man left, as he knew he I would have a hard job to find another. To hiB sur prise, however, soon after snnrise next morning, a short, sinewy son of Erin walked into camp, and after lighting his pipe, sat down on a dilapidated gripsack, and inquired if a cook was wanted. It did not take the boss long to make a bargain with the man, who Baid his name was McMillan He was soon installed in his position, stowed hi grip away, and, after a wash in the creek, began the operation of getting dinner. The boys sized up the new arrival as the beans were dis...

A Mormon Divorce. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Mormon Divorce. There was no accounting for it. She could have been anything she chose in that little Georgia town. She could have married any man not already married, from the blacks mith up to the Justice of the Peace himself. But Bhe chose to throw herself away. When the proselyting elder of tbe Latter Day Saints left the town with his three con verts, Alicia among them, the people arose in their might and talked of running after him and hanging him to the most convenient tree. They talked a good deal abont the matter. That is the way tbey arose in their might. And so Alicia, firm to her new found faith, was taken across the plains in an emigrant train to Salt Lake. A cattleman named Nephi Hearn, who could quote verses from the Book of Mormon by the yard, came up from Arizona and met her at the elder's honse. He saw that she was fresh cheeked, large eyed and black haired, and he began forthwith to make love to her. Now love and all that were not a part of Alicia's programme, if...

A Chinaman's Experience of Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Chinaman's Experience of Football. The Glasynv Evanimj Times of a, recent date says: — Out at Hampden to-day an almond-eyed son of the land that is governed by tho Brother of tho Moon was an interested spectator of the match. There was little about him tliat suggested the Hea then Chinee. The cold Imezo which flourishes al most coiuinuously arouud Hampden P»rk is not one that makea the loose and light garments of the Celestials appropriate wear, and 'John' had care fully consigned the3e to his bag, and sported a buttoned-up pea-jacket and tho inevitable umbrella, while his pig-tail was carefully coiled away and belayed under a broad cap with a somewhat C1 Ger man-bandish' 'snoot.' John was in a charming condition or innocence ia reference to the beauties of football, and was equal ly ignorant of the mysteries or the importance of a ' final.' He was, however, very receptive, and was cheerfully willing to lend his feeble pipe to aid the shouts when a point was scored or a ^ood run w...

Examination Paper—on Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Examination Paper— on Africa. Questiou : State what you know of Africa ? ' Answer: Africa is one of the great divisions of tho eartb, and the Libya oE the Ancients, but they couldn't always lib yer, and so had to move on. Its most western point is cape Verde. Perhaps you've heard of ib. About two thousand five hundred miles of Africa is sterile, but when they do happen to ater-ile— — well, yon noBe it. Africa has many rivers, but Egypt once had a Iiivers WilBon. The Nils is the longest ; the Niger is aho a long one, and it falls into the Bight of Benin by its many months, but how long the bite has been in their mouths no one can say. Eichard Linder, the exr-lorer, discovered this fact about the Niger. He was not always well received by tbe natives, who sometimes gave him a lander. Vast oceans of sand exist in Africa — thousands of miles of it — so sand lu wuwivj -*uu w -y uibut&rieB can go there and get it for nothing. The Sahara, or Great Desert, is tbe largest of these ari...
