The Women's College. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

The Women's College. Those who have tilken any part in the eree tion of the- Women's College, the building of which wno opened on Satutday-by-irady Duff, mav be congratulated upon the success of the project so far. The existence of the college was not a necessary concomitant of the admission of female student; to the advantages of an university education. It has been pos sible to allow women to enjoy the University curriculum without finding for them areBidence within the precincts of the University. But the accommodation now available ought to have the effect of increasing the number of female students, because it will enable those to enter whose means will not allow them to reside in Sydney. Aa MisB Macdonald, the learned Principal of the Woman's College, said on Saturday, the college will give the students the joys of life as well as the joyB of learning. Girl students entered at the college will be as it were a family group, cheering each other by their companionship, urging eac...

A DARING GAME. CHAPTER XXIX. LALLY AND MRS. WROAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A DARING GAME. CHAPTER XXIX t.at.t.V AND MBS. WEOAT. The simple and bnBineB8-like announcement of ber nam-s by Mrs. Blight's young goTerneBB to Mrs. Blight's eccentric guest, produced a sensation as stalling as unexpected to X/all'. Mrs. 'Wroat uttered a strange exclamation and leaned forward on her staff, her black b taring at the young girl in a piercing gaze, her booked nose and her chin almost meeting aDd her shrivelled lips mumbling excitedly an inaudible whisper. The old lady's eagerness and agitation were shared by her maid, who stared at Lally with a wondering and incredulous gaze. ' 'Who —who did you say you were ?' de manded MfB. W rout as soon as Bhe could speak, in cracked, horse tones. ' Who ?' 'I am Mrs. Blight's governess, ma'am,' replied Lally, wonderingly, and concluding in her own. mind that Mrs. Wroat's eccen tricities verged upon madness. ' Yes, yes ; I know,' cried the old lady, impatiently. ' But who are yon ?' ' Nobody, ma'am— only Lally Bird, the governess.' ...

The Modern Greek. BY ONE WHO FOUND HIM OUT IN THREE HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

The Modern Greek. BY OHE WHO FOUND HIM OUT IN THBEE HOUBS. ( From the Pall Mall Budget.) The modern Greek says he is the lineal descendant and heir of the ancient Greek, but he is not. He may be divided into two classes : such examples of him aa look like the Young Apollo, and such as do not. Those of the latter class, which iB very far tbe larger, look, for the most part, like the Impenitent Thief. The dress of the modern Greek is a number of short petticoats not unlike those worn by a fairy in the ballet, only in some cases less clean. To call him dirty, however, as some travellers have done is most unjust. A chimney-sweep is dirty at the cIobb of his day's work. But with the modern Greek dirt is less a custom than an immemorial tradition. 1 The first cases of him seen by the traveller (supposing him to approach the country from that side) are in Meesenia. Thia fact has suggested to an antiquary that at tbe disas trous close of the first Messenian war in 735 B.C. the Messenians bo...

Habits of Noble Personages. {By James Payn, in the Illustrated London News.) Among the delightful details respecting the habits of eminent personages so lavishly eupplied by the press, we have now their ' characteristic gestures ' when engaged in conversation. I have seen eminent persons with some much more funny ones, but unfor tunately these have not been recorded ; the reporters have not hud my luck, or are too repectrm to mention inein. xiowever, let as ba thankful for what we get. The HeirAp parent of these ijles, we are told, ' if annoyed, winks hia left eye rapidly.' This is surely a proof of great mildues of disposition. Com mon people expreS'' th-ir annoyance much more unpleasantly — u.-e 'swear words,' or, if females, ' go upstairs saying things.'

Sporting Notes and Notions, j [By the Vagrant.] Few there are I suppose or my readers wnoee memories take them back some score of yeara or so who have forgotten 'Billy' Morgan, onoeavery prominent pedestrian in the Northern district, and one of the gamest and most popnlar men that aver laced a shoe.

Sheridan's Love-Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Sheridan's Love-Story. Before Sheridan had produced ' The School for Scandal,' nay, before he had produced ' Tbe Eivals,' he had had much personal knowledge both of competition in love and of public slander. It came about in this way. *Whnn he was about 19, that is to aay, in 1770, the Sheridan family, including TbomoB Sheri dan and hia two sons, Charles and Richard, went to reside in Bath. There they naturally enough, made the acquaintance of another farai'y connected with the profesBiou of art, the Xiin'ieyn, of whom the father was well , known as a composer and music-teacher, while the daughter Elizabeth, was, though still very young (about 17), already quite famous (in a concert-singer. She hod personal as well as intellectual charms, and had had many admirers. Among these, notably, was a Mr. Long, an old man possessed ot con siderable property, who bod laid himself and hut wealth at her feet. At this point we may quote from the story as told in the issue of the London Magazine ...

Painless Dentistry. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Painless Dentistry. [ ' Does it hurt very much to have a tooth pulled ?' inquired a tall man of a dentist. ' That depends,' was the reply. ' If the affected tooth happens to be a molar, with the roots at right angles with each other, or if it is decayed bo as to leave the ner«e unco vered, or even if it is worn down even with the gums, so that it is necessary to dig the flesh awny in order to get a good hold with the forceps, then the chanceB are that you will kick a little.' Then the tsll man trembled from bead to foot, and in a Bbaking voice said : — ' What do you think of that one?' accompanying bis words by opening his mouth to tbe fullest extent and indicating with his finger the seat of hia trouble. The doctor took up a small instrument with a little round looking-glass at one end, I and, running it into tbe cavern that yawned before him. made a careful inspection of tbe interior. ' That looks like a stubborn old fellow,' remarked the doctor, as he replaced the instru ment upo...

Sully. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

Sully. The friendship between Henry IV. of Prance and the Duke of Sully is famous in history. Sally was devoted to the king's in terests, and be was not afraid of his dis pleasure. Henty once signed a paper which contained his agreement to a marriage that Sully considered wrong and unwise. He did not hesitate to tear the paper in the kine's I presence, and tbe promise was not renewed. Henry gave bis consent to tbe levying of an exorbitant tax by which some of his courtiers would profit greatly. Sully, the minister of finance, refused to sign the ne cessary papers. Tbe courtiers complained to the king of Sully's brusque refusal. ' We must accept anything from so faith ful a servant,' said the king. Sully was an accomplished statesman. He reformed the finances of the country, and in every emergency his shrewd advice was of great nr-r»ice to tbe king. In June of tbe year 1600 the Duke of Savoy, with whom Henry had been at war, pretended to submit to him. Henry was deceived by bis pro f...
