ONE FROM OF RUDENESS. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 31 March 1883

ONE 1COBM OF ltUDliNKSS. A fi/IVghant breach of politeness, and one. which is more annoying, to rofinod and sou sifcivo .-people is the very general practice of interrupting one's conversation. The im punity .with, which this is done lias degra ded rational conversation, which ought to bo the greatest charm of social intercourse, into a provoking farco. A man or woman who has anything to say that is worth say ing, desires to say it in his or her. own way; and tlioso who have brains to appreciato it will be equally desirous of hearing it without interruption. Yet it is a common thing for a parlour conversation to partake moro of the nature of a Tower of Babel than a con versation among rational beings, who are supposed to laiow and appreciate what each other says. One begins to relate an inci dent, and before lie has finished two sen tences, some parrot with fine clothes chimes in with her senseless gabble, blinking tho thread of discourse, and compelling tho nar rator to begin again...

HOW TO SWIM. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 31 March 1883

HOW TO SWIM. THEUE is really' uo mystery in learning to swim-an accomplishment- which is pos sessed in perfection by the most stupid of frogs. More than once wo have explained how anyone cau teach himself. Tho trunk less the arms, is heavier than the water; with the arms it is lighter ; all, therefore, that a person has to do is to acquire the habit of drawing in tho breath when he is preparing to make a stroko, and expelling the breath when he is making it. Let any any one do this and keep calm, and ho will find that he can swim. But, perhaps, it is better to acquire confidence by a preliminary course of floating. To do this it is only necessary to lio liat on tho water, stretch out tho arms with the palms of tho hands downward, throw back the head, and when ever tho body sinks low, slowly to fill the lungs with air, London Truth.
