He devoted bis entire time tojgloomy forebodings, and wasneverso.happy as when drawing gruesome comparisons be tween the times that were and tbe times thnt are. lie would pinch a cent, dcprivcbimself of the common necessities of life, and preach sermons on the subject of economy to tbe veriest beggar who applied at his area door for food. Across the way lived a little widow, whose sole delight in life was to bring up her only child— a sweet little girl— nsasunbenm. The misanthropist detested the child, her glow and warmth, her red cheeks, round limbs. Her merry laughter wa3 saw-teeth to his ears ; and hor appearance of n bright summer morn when the sun sbonc brightest, when the birds sang sweetest, and when the sky was bluest, was nn eyesore to him as lie drew bis dingy curtains apart and looked forth from hischeerless room upon- the love liness of nature in her ga...

Oddities in Wills. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 9 February 1887

Oddities in Wills. Simple a matter as it really is, lawyers have not always been successful in drawing their own/wills. Lord St. Leonards, High Chan cellor of England, who as, Edward Sugden, was tho most eminent chancery lawyer in England, and who, with a number of law books, one particularly with a very elaborate chapter on drawing wills, drew his own will, and it required an expensive lawsuit and a decision of a court of chancery to give it pro per effect. The will of Lord Wcstbury, another Lord High Chancellor, drawn by him self, met with the same fate. I could give many similar instances/ There have been deviBes to animals or for their benefit which have been valid to cats, dogs, horses, and even parrots. Not un frc-q iir.lly people have undertaken to show their Bpite end hatred, and sometimes their humor, in wills.

It is a singular fact that blind Fortune usually seems to extend her favors to those who least deserve them. Thus in racing, for example, the world is every now and then BBtonished by the news that Mr. So-and-so has won an enormus sum of money through the victory of somo rank outsider — in ninety nine cases out of a hundred Mr. So-and-so turns out to be a professional bookmaker, whose arrangements were such that, in any event, he oould not possibly lose. Barely does it happen that suoh a stake is won by an outsider, although outsiders are very muoh more addicted to speculations which, if . fortunate, would have soma such result. At all games of chance, the same rule obtains— the winners of unusual amounts are, almost invariably, men who make play a business, and are untroubled by acruplos as beset the honest ...
