THE WORST CRIME [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
THK W0U3T CSIME. A ractropoliKT.i journul ridioulc-B ilii? idea that tho Giiltou erinu: is (he most terrible in Ausiinlian rccor.is of horrors. It. recalls ilic Couroy's Gap trngedy of 30 years p.2fo, the killing 'of (hree fiheplierds nfid Ivlr. aud Mrs. Conroy by a madman, lmmod William MnnOay, wuo nui Mar.cl; wiui an axe. It also mentions thn murders bj the roadman Lyuch. The outrages were indoed appalling, bat thpy do not ap proach in devilish determination and inconceivable cruelly the work of the Gatton ghouls. There aro certain unprintable features of -the Queens land Horror, which, if printed, would pickeu civiliaatii.u. They point to tho fact that the perpetrators took every precaution not only to nsenult and murder the girls and bludgeon aud mutilate their brother, but also to de file the dead bodies. It would seem that they lingered on the scene in order to devise diabolical indignities. Of this there is all too much proof. This being so, it is to be f cored that Uic broth...
Why West Painted "The Death of Nelson." [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
Why West Painted 'The Death of Nelson.' That was a very fine compliment which Nelson paid Benjamin West, the painter Nelson was at a public dinner given in ins honour, and happening to sit next to West adroitly turned the conversation upon art. Nelson lamented that he was to a large extent deficient in artistic percep tion, hut there was one picture, he said, which had an especial fascination for him. West asked what the picture was, and Nelson returned the gratifying answer that it was the 'Death of sir John Wolfe,' one of West's paintings. ' Why do you not paint more pictures of that kind ?' asked the Great Admiral. ' Because there are no more subjects my lord,' replied the artist. ',But I fear your intrepidity will yet furnish me with such another scene ; and, If it should, I shall certainly avail myself of 'Will you ?' cried Nelson. 'Then I hope I shall die in my next battle.' Nelson's hope was destined to be real ised, for his next engagement was the Battle of Trafalgar, West b...

THE PHILLIPINES. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
THE PHILIPPINES. The Phillipiuo Islands, which the Americans are about to take possession of, are about eight or ten iti unmoor, of which Mauilla is tho capital, and St. Agnes, Ki Kiana, Samboaugo and Barcelona, in Bareelon Straits, the most prolific iu commercial commodi ties of the remainder. The climate is an equable one, mild iu both summer aud winter, whilst the absence of raiu is moro thau compensated by the heavy fall of dew at night. One bears it dropping flora the eaves of the houses like rain. With snnli a olim.it e vege tation ia \ory donso, and such fruits as cloves, nutmegs, and cinnamon grow wild.

He also burrowed £5 from me and left the country. I write to inform you that 1 am still alive, and long to see the old parental ronf again.

WONDERFUL EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
WONDERFUL EYESIGHT. The Duchess of X ? once went to Green wich to see the marvels of the Observatory, tt was a lovely night, and, fur the fair Duchess's benefit, tbe great telescope was duly levelled at the dazzling field of stars. ' What is that star ?' ah* said, pinting to ' Oh, that's Aldebaram, a star of the first magnitude!' ' Is it very far off ?' asked her grace. ' About six or seven light-vears, your grace.' i ' What, is a light-year ?' ?? Merely an expression which one uses to convey aa idea of tbe distance which light travels in i year. ltoughly speaking, light travels at the rate of 190,000 miles in a lecouii, and there are about tliirly-one mil million five hundred and thirty-six seconds in a year. In one year, therefore, light travels about five billion nine hundred and uinety-ope thousand eight hundred and forty millions of miles. The -*xpressiao ' light-year ' includes these figures.' ?? And iB that star all those millions of miles away ?' ' Yes, your grace, as nearly...

, HARD ON JONES. ? There is a man in Manchester who hap at. moBt uncommon name. This is how he came by it.

BETWEEN KISSES. A WOMAN'S FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
BETWEEN- KISSES. A WOMAN'S FANCY. You say yon lore me now; no doubt You think yon do; you may be right; The winds of summer blow without — The fields with dawn are white. But in tbe dull days yet to be. And under life's wan skies of rain, This heart which now you take from me Hav nnlv throb with Dain. \ Ah, me! who knows? Will then theisweet Same passionate pulse be mine and yours? Life's rapturous hours have flying feet; Only the pang endures. And if love fall, tbe pitying years For you new joys will hold apart; We women only see through tears The Bhipwreck of a heart. HITCH AT THE ALTAR. The possibility of a bitch arising from a sudden change of inclination on the part of the principal* is ludicrously illustrated by the cue of two couples who, on one occasion, presented themselves at the mayoralty in a suburb of Paris, to carry out the civil por tion of their marriage contract. During tlie ceremony one of the groomsmen saw, or fancied he saw, his partner making ' shecp's eyes ' at...

The Raison d'Etre. She was evidently £. brand-new bride of the middle-aged school, and was not bashful about telling her love story to the woman who sat by her in the suburban car. ?' Yes, I thought you'd be surprised. I'm surprised myself, for I never did intent! in trf^t murrltaH atroln And Dick, he says he never intended to either. Tlie way it happened was awful funny. Henry, you know, my first hus band, was buried in the old cemetery, and his grave was gittin' kind o' caved in lookin', an' 1 thought, as he was a sol dier, anyhow, I'd jes1 have him dug up an' burled over again in the Soldiers' Cemetery— wouldn't cost no more than fixin' up th' old grave — an' would be a heap more stylish. Well, I fixed to have it done ; an' them cem'tery men said it would be all right. Fust news I know here comes Dick— my new husband, you know— but I'd never seed him before— and said I'd had his dead wife dug up and carted over to th' Soldiers' Grave yard-an' burled-an' if I didn't have her dug u...
A New Stamp. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
A New Stamp. The new French postage atamp will not only, as preface writers say, gratify a long-felt want, but (says a Paris correspondent) 1t will be the starting point of a new development In.phllatelics. The long-felt want lias been for a stamp symbolising Uie French Republic. When the Government decided last year to have a new stamp an open competition wan formed, but first-rate artists did not respond, and the result was a lament able failure. M. Lebon then took upon himself to apply to M. Grasset, the French decorator and engraver. The latter has worked for eight months at his design, which has been approved by M. Mosnreur, the successor of M. Lebon at the Commerce Department. France, or the French Republic, is represented by the figure of a girl or very young woman or noblo and winning- appearance. The face is three-quarters profile. The large eye, wide open, is expressive of. spirit, intellect, und action. The mouth la rc-fined, and the profile pure' In style. The shoulders ...

Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Bright. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 20 January 1899
Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Bright. In the following quotation from the -Magazine of Art.' Sir John Tenniel the famous ' Pinion' cartoonis't, makes an interesting reference to Mr. Gladstone «?»» Mr. Bright:-' As I never use a model, I never draw from life, but always from a photograph, though not In quite the same spirit as Sarobcrcrne floes 1 get a photograph only of the man whom J want to draw, and seek to iret his character. Then, if the photograph is In profile, I have to ' fudge' the full fa«e and 'vice versa.' ; but if I only succeed In getting tihe character, I seldom go far wrong— a due appreciation being an almost Infallible guide. I had the oppor tunity of studying Mr. Gladstone's face carefully when he did me the honour of inviting me to dinner at Don-nlng-street, and I have met him since ; but I fancy, after my ' Mrs. Ckimmldge' cartoon and 4 Janus,' I don't deaerve to be honoured i again ! His face lies much more charac- I ter and is much stronger than Mr Brigflit's was. Mr. ...
