ETHEL AND JOAN; OR, True Love's Crown. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
Ethel and Joan OR, True Love's Crown. CHAPTER At the window of the house in one of the largost and most fashionable squares in Brighton, a young girl stands leaning against the pane,idly watching the passers-by as they hurry along with dripping umbrellas which they have some difficulty in holding tip, for it is one of those rainy, blowy after noons in December peculiar to a seaside place, and Brighton in particular. Many a male pedestrain as he passes however, in spite of rain and wind, gives a second glance at the pretty face in the win* dow, with its sad grey eyes, aureole of sun kssed brown curls, and sweet red-lipped dewy mouth—generally the softest, most tender-expression mouth in the world; but to-day it wears just a shade of discon tent and weariness at the comers, for Joan has only one more week to stay, one more week out of the close dark square in London where she lives, and it has rained almost incessantly for the last forty-eight hours, How. she longs to feel the fresh b...

Mrs. Keep and her mother, Mrs. Burtonr "hoth of East Maitland, occupy an awful ;ppsition. They lie in Maitland jail cast for death. They are both charged with the Tiiiurder of "William Henry Keep, the hus band of one woman and son-in-law of the other. The crime was- committed as far back as November, 1883. Dr. Howe, who "was called in to see Keep, at first thought the spasms arose from spinal irritation. Later on he became suspicious of poisoning by strychnine. Dr. Pearce confirmed his . suspicions. Mrs. Keep and her mother were tried, but the jury., could not agree. The jury agreed this time. It now appears that the jury at the former trial were all, save one, in favour of a verdict of guilty. .... .. * * # # Judges ought to be good judges of charac ter and of'how human nature will develop itself in critical circumstances.

An hour was sacrificed to dinner, and the game went on again all the second night and until half-past eleven the third day when Khalil Bey rose from the .table winner of the million.
PROPOSED TUNNEL UNDER SYDNEY HARBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
PROPOSED TUNNEL UNDER SYDNEY HARBOUR. As some rumors have been circulated as to a pro posed tramway tunnel to North Shore, it may not be amiss (says the Evening News) to let the public know what really has been done in the matter. For some time Mr. Charles O'Neill, M.I.C.E., lately Engineer-in-Chief in Auckland, N.Z., and Mr. F. B. Cripps, C.E., the well-known hydraulic engineer, have been at work on a scheme for connecting the north and south sides of the harbour by tunnelling The scheme was submitted to Mr. Dibbs in January last; but its consideration by the Government has been postponed in consequence of the departure of the troops to the Soudan, the anticipated war between England and Ku3sia, and other business. The matter will be brought before the next Cabinet meet ing by Mr. Dibbs. The proposed work will be 6400ft. long from ter minus to terminus, or about one and one-eighth mile long. The tunnel will be GOOOft long. The roadway will start at the corner of Macquarie and Alber...
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND. From a Washington correspondent we learn that Society circles are terribly shocked at President Cleveland's plebeian habit of breakfasting at 8 o'clock and working in his sliirt-sleves. He is credited with feeling a contempt for society ;as it is constituted in the capital. His attitude in this respect is all the more noticable when contrasted with the habits of his predecessor. Mr. Arthur's administration was a continued de light to society people. . With his courtly manners, his sesthetic tastes, and the bevy of charming ladies in the fragrant parlours, the White House grew to be a sort of Wind sor Castle, to be admitted to which all so ciety people felt honored. They are now disposed to look upon Cleveland as a crusty old bachelor, with severe ideas of business and a geat contempt for society. Therefore society fells a little rebellious, and some of its leaders have already resolved to keep away from the White House altogether. People Who are well acquainted ...
BRAVE MARY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
BRAVE MARY. TupY were alone in the cottage—Mary and her little brother John—as both their lather and mother had gone to town ; for it was market day. The mother was loth to leave her children alone in the cottage, but they could not possibly take them, so must submit to the inevitable. Mary was four years older than her brother, who was nine years old, and rather a small ohild for his age; but he had a bright intellectual look, and pro mised well at his studies. After taking an affection ate farewell of their father and mother, the children went into the house to " tidy it," as they said, but there was not inuch to be done in the neatly-kept little cottage, but when they had done the little there was, came the difficulty what were they to do lor amusement ? Mary proposed reading aloud, and John readily assented, so they wiled away the hours until dinner time. After that, being tired of reading, John said— " Mary, let us go for a little ride; I will go for the horses." "I should like...

THE IRON HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
THE IRON HOUSE. In his speech at the Engine drivers' dinner, Mr. Goodchap quoted Elihu Burritt, who said;—"I love to see one of those huge creatures, withsinewsof brass and muscles of iron, strut forth from his stable, and sal uting the train of cars with a dozen sonor ous puffs from his iron nostril's, fall back gently into his harness. » There be stands, champering and foaming upon the iron truck—his great heart a furnace of glowing coal—his lymphatic blood boiling within hip veins. The strength of a thousand horses is moving his sinews. He ,pants to be gone. He would draw. St. Peter's across the desert of Sahara if he could be hitched

A NOTABLE MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
A NOTABLE -MARRIAGE. . : A; notable weclding lias recently taken place. Miss Mackay, th'e adopted daughter of the American mining king, was married in Paris t'o Prince Fiernando de Galastro, an Italian' officer. She; is now, therefore, a Princess. She had a dowry of four millions sterling. ■ Tt,;was- not, however, the gilding that won ' her a husband, for her personal.appearance was charming, if all he true we've heard.' This is the description of a London contem porary:—She is "small, slim, of a pliant, fig ure, sufficiently rounded for beauty, and has an artless, happy countenance. She has neat features, the softest 'eyes imaginable, the simplest manner, complete self-posses sion, does not seem to know what nervous ness is, and yet has a modest air." Her dress was white satin, moulding the figure, and forming at the waist behind an immense .fpouf that rose high as it projected out and fell in a voluminous square train. She did not wear a jewel. . The bridal outfit is said to have ...
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND. The new President of the United States pre . serves in his career the tradition' of coming up from poverty and labour to the highest eminence in the Eepublic, which has only rarely been broken in the records of the White House since Jackson's time. Of the Six President during the last quarter of a ' century, Lincoln began adult life as a rail splitter, Johnson as an illiterate tailor, and .'Grant as a poor tanner, while both Garfield and Arthur were able to secure collegiate education only as they are earned the ne * cessary money by teaching school. Grover Cleveland is quite as striking an example of the self-made American as our whole his tory; affords. He was born in 1837, the son of a poor Presbyterian clergyman, whose large family were accustomed to frequent migrations and uniformly meagre comforts. The death of this parent,while the new Pre sident was still a lad, compelled liim to strike out for himself, and he became, suc cessfully, a grocer's boy, a tea...
MARRYING AND RE-MARRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
MARRYING AND RE-MARRYING. It appears to be no uncommon thing in the United States for men and women who have been divorced to re-marry their repud iated partners. A Vermont paper contains an account of a ease in point. A woman lately applied to the country court at Island Pond for a divorce from her husband on the grbund of incompatibility of temperament. The decree was in due course pronounced, but instead of going away in opposite direc tions the emancipated pair left the court arm-in-arm. The man insisted upon see ing the woman, first to the, nearest railway station, arid then all the way to her home, thirty miles off, and ere he parted from her he had persuaded her to marry him once more. Still more curious is a story which is reported from I^ewisto.n, Maine. A woman called to see a lawyer in that town, and having reminded him that twelve monthsvbefore he had been instrumental in procuring a divorce for her, explained that she had gince become engaged to her late husband, and th...
CONDITION OF CENTRAL AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 2 May 1885
CONDITION OF CENTRAL AFRICA. The war correspondent of theEvenincj News, writing from Aden, says:—" To all who have in the least degree studied the question it is patent that the condition of Central Africa must be improved, the germs of civili zation sown, the slave traffic stopped, the fertile lands tilled, the resources developed, and the dark continent, and the still darker doings of Turkish marauders exposed to the piercing light of civilization and humanity. And what nation is more fitted to perform so difficult and complicated a task than Eng land ? True she may not reap the reward of her labors yet, or at all. But, in a work of humanity, should the mercenary sordid element be a paramount consideration ?" In every land industry must be untramelled, enterprise fostered, aud the poor toiling, persecuted producer, given an opportunity to rise in the soale of existence. Hitherto the labor of the fellah in Egypt has evoked nothing but oppression, his industry avar ice, and his ente...
