CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

CHAPTER II. LESLIE and I had lived together about six months, when there came to another of our village schools a gentleman, as head teacher -a widower, with one little child. Tall, with a dark, haughty style of manly beauty, he attracted notice inevitably by his personal appearance. Reserved, calm, cold, in outward manner, reticent in speech, stern and uncompromising in judgment ; this was Ralph Kingston. He repelled us at first, but those amongst us who got to.know him, soon learned to value deeply his highly cultured mind, and to admire the clear-sighted, large handed benevolence he exercised towards all who needed it. Leslie and Mr. Kingston, from the first, antagonised one another. I must confess that I never saw the child appear to less ad- vantage than before him. She carried the natur al.buoyancy of her manner into puerile frivolity, and evidently exercised the most unswerving carefulness in concealing from him her many accomplishments, and natural abilities. As for him, at ...

THE AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL PROVIDENT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

THE AUSTRALIAN MUTUAL PROVI- DENT SOCIETY. OF all tlie schemes which human wis- dom and philanthropy have devised, that of Life Assurance is, undoubtedly, the noblest. There is no other which possesses the means . for the accomplishment of so much good, and the bestowal of so much unostentatious charity, and whose operations are so far removed from the taint of selfish- ness. Starting at a period distinguished by the absence of all reliable data on which to rear its fabric, and opposed, as all novel and untried schemes are, by the blindness of pre- judice, Life Assurance has steadily pursued its course, surmounting all obstacles, and expanding its . operations at every stride, until it has established itself on the broadest and firmest possible basis, and has made its benefits felt in every ramification of society. True, the pages of its history are tarnished by some dark spots, notably the late disas- trous failures of the Albert and European offices, and although no excuse can be ...

Poetrn. OLD FOLKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

OLD FOLKS. Oh, don't be sorrowful, darling, ' Oh, don't be sorrowful, pray ; Taking the year, together, my dear. There isn't more night than day. 'Tis rainy weather, my darling, Time's waves they have heavily run ; But taking the year together, my dear, There isn't more clouds than sun. "We are old folks now, my darling, ' Our heads are growing grey ; And the time of year is coming, my dear, You will always find the May. We have had our May, my darling, And our roses long ago ; And the time of year is coming, my dear, . For the silent night and snow. And God is God, my darling, Of night as well as day ; And we feel and know that we can go Wherever He leads the way. Aye, God of the night, my darling Of the night of death so grim; The gate that leads out of life, good wife, Is the gate that leads to Him.

FORSTER BRIDGE, CEDAR PARTY CREEK, WINGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

FORSTER BRIDGE, CEDAR PARTY CREEK, WINGHAM. OUR illustration on page 1, is of a substan- tial timber bridge-erected some months ago over the Pahpoo, or Cedar Party Creek. This is a small northern tributary of the Manning River, county of Macquarie, and forms one of the boundary lines of the township of Wingham. The country surrounding Wing- ham is chiefly agricultural, the district not being so well adapted for pastoral occupation. The geological featui'es are sandstone and lime- stone. The distance of Wingham from Sydney is 195 miles, and the communication is by steamer from Taree, distant from Wingham about eight miles. Wingham has a post office, courthouse, and, being the oldest town- ship on the river, a District Court is held there twice a year. The roads of the district are under the control of a local Board. The sur- rounding neighbourhood consists of mountain- ous and scrubby country, with stony ridges, and great quantities of limestone of superior quality, for which the Man...

Selections Crane and Cap. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

Selections <§rabe anti EDITING A NEWSPAPER.-Editors as a rule are very reticent in connection ?with their own business. A contemporary, however, thinks it right to say:-"We never could see the yirtue of the boast which is so often made by the papers and magazines, that so large a portion of their pages is original. Such originality is of ten maintained to the detriment of the paper. The best exchanges of our acquaintance are by no means those which have the greatest amount of original matter. There is more of editorial tact and talent required to make proper and practical selections than is put in requisition by the production of the vaunting original papers, who seem to consider originality as the only requisite for a good periodical. A good newspaper is always dependent upon other resources than its own. And the boast of a periodical that it is entirely original is too often like the boast of a library if it should claim to have the production of only One author. To DEV...

BAKER'S CAT. A Californian Story. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 8 July 1872

BAKER'S CAT. A Californian Story. BY MARK TWAIN. WHENEVER Dick Baker, of Deadhorse Gulch, was out of luck, and a little down-hearted, he would fall to mourning over the loss of a won- derful cat he used to own (for where women and children are not, men of kindly impulse take up with pets, for they must love some- thing). And he always spoke of the strange sagacity of that cat with the air of a man who believed in his secret heart that there was something human about it-may be even supernatural. I heard him talking about this animal once. Ho said, "Gentlemen, I used to have a cat here, by the name of Tom Quartz, which you'd a took an interest in, I reckon-most anybody would. I had him here eight years, and he was the remarkablest cat I ever see. He was a large grey one of the Tom specie, and he had more hard natural sense than any man in his camp, and a power of dignity; he wouldn't let the Gov'nor of California be familiar with him. He never ketehed a rat in his life 'peared to be a...

Selections, #rafce anti <3ty* How SCOTT WORKED.-Scott threw off his MS. in rapid and careless style, tossing it into the post without a secoud glac ce, and reserving all his corrections till he saw how it read in type. We need hardly say that Sir Walter Scott's proofs were the terror of his printers. He sent Dr. Lardner half wild with the MS. of his "Scottish History. " It was full of slips of the pen, of false grammar, of incom- plete sentences, of repetitions and clumsi- nesses without end ; and all these Scott corrected in his proofs, till the doctor, in sheer despair, had to set a clerk at work to copy out the MS. and "make it read" before it was set. CIRCULAR SAW.-A paper, reporting a criminal trial, makes one of the wituesses say, "I saw him round the corner." That must have been a circular saw. SPITEFUL.-An old bachelor editor thus, in his spite, comments on a recent moonlight night :-"We left our sanctum at midnight last, night, and on our way home we saw a young ...

Elegant Arts for the Ladies. THE ART OF MAKING FEATHER FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

Elegant ajrtó for tlje £aWe& THE ART OF MAKING- FEATHER FLOWERS. THE art of making feather flowers is scarcely known or practised in this country, hut they can he made to equal foreign productions from the plumage of the common goose, and will, at trifling expense, produce bouquets of all the garden favourites. Indeed, it is an art which might well enlist the tastes and employ the lingers of our Australian fab ones, on account of the ease with which the most brilliant materials are procured. There is scarcely a tiut among all the beautiful colours of the garden tribe, varying hues of foliage included, which cannot be obtained among the gorgeous.,plumage of our parrots and parroquets, cockatoos, and other gaudy specimens of the feathered family. But, failing to procure these, there is scarcely a country home where the common goose feather cannot be obtained, and these will prove admirable subotitutes, although the dyed colours can never equal the natural in brilliance.

»tüntiSt Sfottfagö* PEBBLE GUNPOWDER -The manufacture | f the new "pebble" gunpowder for our , preat guns is now proceeding as fast as the resources of the Government factory will, nermib. Large supplies will also be obtained from the private trade. In appearance it is like black pebbles, whence its name. Its Combustion is so much less sudden than that of the existing powder, that the maximum strain on the gun, with equal charges, is greatly reduced ; and with larger charges the strain is far less than at present. This oermits of the charges of all our heavy guns being greatly increased, with a corresponding increase in the power of the weapons. "Modem Breech-Loaders; S-porting and Mm«ry." By W. W. Greener.

OUR MEAT EXPORT SUPPLY [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

OUR MEAT EXPORT SUPPLY THE increased demand for Australian beef and mutton, presses borne tbe important question, How are the growing demands of the markets to be supplied ? Clearly, great strides must be made in the management of our flocks and herds. It will not always do to trust to nature, genius and art must be called forth to action, and rapid strides made in the development of the kind and carcase of the animals. Some breeders have already arisen to the conception of what is wanted, and sheep of the largest carcase are being imported. This, however, is not exactly what is required. In a country such as this, small animals do and pay better than the large. What is required, beyond all other things, is a system of management best cal- culated to make the most of what we now have, lt is marvellous what may be done with real good managemet. Turning, for one moment, to our short-horns, live years ago the best of them realised not more than £100; now, calves realise three times tha...

THE TWO NEPHEWS; OR, WHICH WILL WIN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 2 August 1872

THE TWO NEPHEWS; OR, WHICH WILL WIN. AT the parlour window of a pretty villa, near Walton-on-Thames, sat, one evening at dusk, an old man and a young woman. The age of the man might be some seventy ; ?whilst his companion had certainly not reached nineteen. Her beautiful, blooming j face, and active, light, and upright figure, 1 were in strong contrast with the worn countenance and bent frame of the old man ; but in his eye and in the corners of his mouth, were indications of a gay self-confi- dence, which age and suffering had damped, "but not extinguished. " No use looking any more, Mary." said he, "neither John Meade nor Peter Finch will be here before dark. Very hard that when a sick uncle asks his two nephews to come and see him, they can't come at once. The duty is simple in the extreme-only to help me to die, and take what I choose to leave them in my will ! Pooh ! when I was a young man I'd have done it for my uncle with the utmost celerity.
