SEASICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
SEASICKNESS. There is nothing, I suppose, that is more universally dreaded by the average woman tourist thau seasickness ; and yet one cannot travel far afield, no matter how small an island we live upon, without having to cross some strip of water. Now, although seasickness in a few isolated cases will defy all attempts to cure it, these are the rare exceptions ; the majority of people could do much to ameliorate its terrors they would only go to work tho right way, and in many , cases they could prevent it entirely. I have travelled more than fifty thousand miles by water, in ali weathers and ail climates. My expsrience has been that quite half the people worry themselves into seasickness. Long befor the steamer is under way thoy are discussing the all important topic with any interested j listener they can lay hands on ; and, as , everyone seems equally anxious to analyse j the subject down to its smallest details, ! this is not a difficult matter. I have ; known women actually s...
VARIETIES. CAPPED. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
VARIETIES. CAPPED. It happened in this wise. Mr. S ? , a well-to-do farmer, residing a few miles from his friend Mr. J--- -, a coal mer* chant of the town of P ? , in the North of England, used to purchase his yearly stock of coal from tho latter ; and, send ing in his carts at the usual time for the usual quantity, wrote ou a sheet of paper the following- simple inscription : , — which was duly conveyed to the wag i goner to the merchant, who, catching tho idea of his correspondent, and fulfilling the order, capped the laconic epistle ! (falling into his friend's humour) as follows : Perusing these lotters by the aid of an interpreter the reader will find the first ' Sob my coal on/ and the reply ' Coal on/ I written in a style that beats everything in stonograp by.
MUNICIPAL MATTERS. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
MUNICIPAL MATTERS. (to tup. r.uiTott.) Sin,— I notice that your cnntcm ijurary's correspondent, ' Observer,1' las another letter in its last issue on Municipal matters. It commences — 'My letter in your issue of oOtli ult., tylilch occupied half ft column of your j space, is attempted to be replied to,' and further on — ' Pro Bono Publico,' who apparently has sat so long himself at the Council table, that he cannot conceive an}7 other person than an alderman having any qualification for figures, jumps to the conclusion that 'Observer' is the happy occupant at the saniL',tub/e' The italics are mine. Like his figures, the*, two sentences quoted require a good deal of explana tion. I honestly confess that so far I have not yet been able to understand the sentence in italics. I should not, however, draw attention to this jumble of words, only to show that if 'Observer' makes such a mess of his sentences much cannot be expected in the way of figures from him. ' Ob server' invites 'Pro Bo...
TO SAVE YOUR TIME! [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
TO SAVE YOUR TIM IS! Havo you over noticed that when read ing you waste a certain amount of time in turning from end of one line to the beginning of the next ? Long ago, when the world was not so busy as now, columns were of a much greater width ; since then they have been narrowed more and more. Of jcourse in an hour's reading little tiuic is lost, but in a lifetime it is likely w wo cuuBiuoiauio, jxuausing t-ms, some ono has suggested that type should bo arranged as follows. You read to the end of the line, drop the eyes, and read back wards : — What a luxury tuohtiw daor ot tho inevitable ta kcab repmacs the end of each s'ti woheoS.onil done ? The argument is that practice will make perfect. Five minutes' practice is generally found more than sufficient for most people !
GOOD SPIRITS ARE ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
GOOD SPIRITS ARE ESSENTIAL. ' Oh, no, it doesn't do for a man or woman of low spirits to live and work in tins sort of atmosphere/ was a remark made by a well-known philanthropist who has spent his lifo amongst the slums of great cities. ' The secret of success is to keep cheerful. A low-spirited slum- ! worker soon becomes a morbid one, and then he is worse than useless.' The friends of this philanthropist know that liQ keeps upon his library table a figure of a laughing donkey. The beast is so convulsed with merriment that no one can look at it without a smile. ' Why do you keep that absurd figure there?' ho was once asked. | Why/ was tho promptly reply,' ' simply because I cannot look at it with out a smile. 'Don't you think that is a good enough reason ?'
TRAVELLER. FAMOUS LONDON FOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
TBAVELL1SR. FAMOUS LONDON FOUNTAINS. What au indescribable charm there i6 about a plashing fountain on a hot sum mer's day ! How singularly grateful and comforting it is, after a weary tramp through the stuffy streets of a great city, to suddenly come upon a graceful column of water dancing in the sunlight and broaking into a glittering mass of dia monds. Considering its huge area and vast wealth, Loudon may be said to be but poorly provided for ill the matter r,f fountains, and continental cities a quarter its size, and with only a tithe of its riohes, are greatly in ndvanco of the world's metropolis in respect of the num bur and artistic variety of thoir fountains. Here and there, hidden away in odd cor ners of that great city, however, a quaint old fouutain may still bo fouud for tho seeking — its stonework, may be, dilapi dated and worn, but its jet of water as pleasing and frolicsome as ever. Such an one may bo soon in tho lovely little oasis about the church of St. *Boto1ph, i...

The MuiTumVulgec Presby tery. The Presbytery of the Murrumbid gee met at Narandera on Wednesday last, R*v. Jennings, of Hay, pre siding. ' In addition to a large quantity of correspondence, and business effecting the internal working of the various charges, the following matters were ueaii witn. An application from Rev. Johnston Smith, of Wentworth, to be placed oil the Aged and Infirm Ministers' Fund, was recommended to be granted, sub ject to the certificate of the medical referee of the Church. An overture from the Home Mission Committee was considered, proposing that the Western District of the colony should be formed into a special mis sion district, and that tlie Presbytery be empowered to induct a minister into a pastoral charge without the formality of a call for a limited period not exceeding^ve years. The Pres bytery after discussion decided to ex press approval of the overture. Mr. R. Moodie, of Deniliquiu, was recommended to the Home Mission Committee for employment as a...
REGARDED WITH HORROR. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
REGARDED WITH HORROR. * They hold madness in the utmost hor ror and fear/ says a traveller, speaking of the vast army of Russian peasantry. ' Here is a case in point : * A woman, in defending a child against a wolf, was bitten by tho animal upon the arm. The brute was finally killed, but a great fear came upon all that the woman might go mad. Weak as she was from loss of blood, and suffering from her wounds, they seized her and shut her up in an outhouse without attendance, with out water, without food and fire. For twenty-four hours she lay there, almost delirious with fever, not knowing but that she might have been bitten by a mad wolf. 'At last, as she showed no signs of hydrophobia, she was allowed to go at largo, but for months the neighbours shunned her house, saying, 'Who knows but that she may suddenly go mad P'

Heard Komid About. [liv Quiz.] That the Town-hall question was Jjefore the Council on Monday night, and the report of the Committee on tho proposed white elephant's pro portions, general appearance, and arrangements for its birth, was adopted. That not one of its fathers felt dis posed to breathe a word about the unchallengeable facts put forward in this journal by editorials and letters to the editor. That, seeing that they cannot ques tion the .solid sense of those facts, those favoring the proposal should, like men and true citizens, admit the error of their ways. That owners possessed of not more than 500 slieep, and butchers, dealers, and salesmen are required to register their runs and premises with the Sheep Inspector of the district on or before 14th January, 1931. That owners of more than 500 sheep are required to make on or be fore January 1, 1901, a return of the sheep then in their possession, A ! fine of .£20 will be imposed in case of [ negligence.

(TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
(To Tiie Editor.) Dear Sir, — X was pleased to note in your issue of tlie 17th ult., that ' Sharpshooter' in his Stray Shots had touched upon a subject that should claim the earnest attention of the elec tors of lliverina before recording their votes at the forthcoming Federal elec tion. The subject to which I refer is Mr. Ashton's attitude upon various questions sincc entering Parliament, that gentleman's desertion of Hay fov Goulburn, and his opposition * to the first Commonwealth Bill may be par doned as Parliamentary privileges, but liis championship of the Boer's cause in the present war, which he publicly stated was the 'Wickedest war of modern times,' is in my opinion a far more serious matter, and I think the majority of those who read the daily papers will agree with me when I say that it reflects no credit upon a legis lator of a British colony to practically take sides with the foes of the flag under which we are, or should be, proud to live. Mr. Ashton characterises the ...
TO KEEP THE HANDS NICE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900
TO KEEP THE HANDS NICE. Cleanliness is the first essential, and, therefore, when rough work has to lie done, it is wull, if possible, to put on gloves. Prevention is better than cure, and as nothing spoils the hands like jet ting them grimed, thid should be avoided as far as possible. It is, however, not always possible to WearylOTW? for dirf.r wnrlr ra mm fmict 1m prepared for one's hands being sometimes very much soiled. When this is the case, don't go to work upon thom with soda, soap, and a brush, for that would roughen thom dreadfully. Instead take some vaseline, lard, or oil, and rub it into tho hands, and then wash tliein thoroughly with a good toilet soap, and a piece of flannel in warm water. The flannel will soon clean them, and without injuring the skin in any way. It is far better than a nail brush for ordinary use, and if used regularly a nail brush will bo found almost, if not entirely, superfluous. That is a thing to bo remembered, for the use of a brush roughens the ...
