National Debt. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 16 January 1903

Xaitional BeJtt. Although it is impossible, (says a Scotch paper) to give an approximate idea of the number of small investors in joint stock companies in -the United Kingdom, some conception may be gathered from the fact that at the end of 1900 there were . 8,439, 98o deposi tors in the Post OSicc Savings Bank, the amount, standing to their ' credit being £135,549,645, this being in vested in the National Debt. In other words, one person in five in Great Britaiu receives a portion' of the inte rest paid ou that debt. This is in marked contrast to 1830 when less than a quarter of a million persons drew dividends from it. The over whelming majority of these depositors belong to the working classes. Inas much, however, as the amount of de posit is limited, and many people wish to secure big dividends, 'it is certainly no exaggeration to say that the same class have an equal amount invested in speculative concerns. They do not take shares in railways, banks, or other big undertakings, ...

Mistress of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 16 January 1903

Mistress of the Sea. Few people nre aware that Britain's mistress-ship of the seas is more than an assertion, and that it is acknowledged by every nation. On entering a foreign poit 'iriariue etiijuette. requires a tnan.of-war to salute tho national flag by dipping' its own, and in return the host lowers its flag. But no British ship dips the Uni'in Jack until -the foreigner first dips his colours. In all seas, both home and foreign, Britain claims to be saluted first, and this homage is rendered by every nation as a tribute to her sovereignty.

Weddell and Co., in some figures published in their re- ] port, state that arrivals of Australian butter to date are 29c wt.

The Omrah, with the first parcel of new season Australian butter ou board, is due in two day's time. It will come to a good market, as the weather, after a week of moist conditions, has suddenly become tiue, clear, and frosty — just the state of things that butter shippers desire. The market for imported dairy produce has improved during the last few weeks, Danish advancing 2s aud Canadian followingsuit. ThePaparoa brought New Zealand's first large con tribution ; the quality of this shipment is highly approved of by buyers, the prices won being practically on a par with Danish, for best grades, say 11...

English Divorce Scandal. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 16 January 1903

l&iigtash JHvorce Scantlol. A London correspondent writes — Tlie Hartopp v. Hartopp and Cowley divorce suit is proving a veritable cause celebre. The result will possi bly be made known in a few hoars. As the facts develop, it is not easy to apportion the censure which public ? opinion meets out to all the leading persons concerned in the trial. Mr. C. H. Wilson, M.P., of Hull (brother to Mr. A. Wilson of Tranby Croft fame), conies in for his share of blame, because, in the search for a titled son in-law. lie permitted his daughter to marry ji bankiupt baronet. Sir Charles Hartopp had the further mis fortune of being morally as well as financially discredited, but the father in-law was so delighted with the prize, that he helped him not only to pay his debts, but to pension an old para mour.

Life's Happiest Period. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 16 January 1903

Life's Hnpiviest i'erioil. I When' an ancient Greek philosopher was asked which he considered was the happiest time in a man's life, lie promptly selected the period between the ages of 40 and 43 On bein^ preised for the reasons which in- , diu:ed him to make this selection, the phil osopher added : 'At 40 a man. if he he intelligent, has lost his illusions, and looks upon the wnrhl as it is, not as he would liko it to be. He is still young enough to par lake of the plensnres of youth, yi;t has suf ficient experience never to permit his heart to rule his head ; is moderate ill all tilings, and wisely shy of hazardous enterprises. ' On being further asked which he consi dered the Happiest time in a woman's life, the philosopher paused a long while, and when at last he replied ho prefaced his answer by asserting that this was the more difficult -|iiestion of the two. Finally he said : ' When she is too old to lie called a girl, and not old enough to he called a woman without the word ...
