A Hero of the Goodwins. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

A Hero of the Goodwins. The author of ' Heroes oE the Q-oodwia Sande' records a gallant deed of Henry Marsh, one of the lifeboat crew at the Downs, in the eastern part of England. A furious tempest wab blowiug, and several vessels had gone ashore and broken np in a few minutes. Then Marsh determined to go down the beach and «ee if something conld be done. ' Don't you gu Lieur i/uhiij : aaia uis wiie, learruny; but he only replied, ' I'll juBt tuke a bit o£ bread and chee-e in my pocket, and my short pipe, and I'll be back soon.' — He found tha tbe beaob crowded with spectators, and the sea breaking over a French brig which had jnflt gone ashore. Tbe rigging was thick with ice, and the snow froze aa it fell. She was rocking wildly with the motion of tbe tremend ous sea. Between her and tbe beach were ten feet of deep water, which, with each giant recoil, swept round her in fury.— ' Are all the people out of that there brig ?' called Marsh. — All but two,' said the by Btandera, ' »nd ...

MINING NEWS. WORKING THE SEA SAND AT PORT MACQUARIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894

MINING NEWS. I WORKING THE SEA SAND AT PORT MACQUARIE. The following letter haB been received from Mr. L. A. Wilkinson by his father, Mr. Alex Wilkinson, and will no doubt be interesting to many. Mr. Lance Wilkinson left Maitland with a party for Port Macquarie, and they have been trying a Jeiger gold saving machine there Tacking Point, Port Macquarie, , „ . , May 3rd. Mitchell arrived on Monday afternoon with the mactune. Now for the result of the test on the I sand : in one word it is a failure ; but, remember, she was not evidently intended for this work, and Su Ptesen^. I know of no appliances which can save the gold ; it is bo fine it floats on water, and being accorapanicd by iron sand, &c., all this remained with the precious metal, and when we endeavour to separate it the gold flows away also. We have bad three days' fair trial in every way we could suggest, but without success. The machine saved for us on a trial with ten coarso specks of gold, and in two minutes wo...

Literary News, Notes, etc. I 'We obtain aa amusing glimpse in Lady Cfranville's Letters , o£ our Sovereign the Queen, just oh she was beginning to toddle : — 'The Duchess of Kent raves about her baby. 'It is my happiness, my joy, my existence. It is the imaae of tbe lato Kiim' (Gesoree the Third). Think of the baby. They say it is King G-eorge in petticoats. So fat it can hardly waddle.' A new novel by Mr. E. P. Benson, the author of Dodo was to be ready in London in April. E. and E. Olark, the Edinburgh printers, who get ready the books issued by some of the principal London publishers, have been interviewed by the Westminster Gazette re specting the employment of female hands. One of the firm says^: — 'Nearly a fifth part of the 550 hands we employ are girls and women. They have been employed ever since the great strike of 1872. First we introduced them only in the composing department, and it speaks well for their work that at least one them is with us still. Now we employ them i...

Literary News, Notes, etc. 'Writing --n '* The Progress o£ Pbaraaoy ' iu the Humanitarian, Dr. Lauder Brunton ad* vancea a very , interesting explanation why, with solemn Btep, the weird sisters should ' round about the cauldron go ' and ' now about the cauldron sing.' Usually - when one wants to boil an ogg, one puts it in boiling water, and allows it to remain for three or four minuteB by a watch ; but when watches were not so plentiful, the time used to bB measured by an hour-glass, in which the sand slowly ran through a narrow aperture. A. still simpler way iB to sing or chant a few verses of Bome song, and I believe this is still sometimes done. If the boiling is to be long continued, it will make the measure of time more accurate to dunce as well aBsing, because tbe rhythm of the song and dance to gether will tend to fall into the natural rhythm of respiration, which is about sixteen or eighteen per minute. In this way both {Shakespeare's witches and the primitive uharmacists ...

Earning a Dollar. At a meeting of the ' W omen's Auxiliary ' in ? it was agreed that every member should contribute a sum, not less than one dollar, which she had earned especially for the pur pose. The money was to handed in at the noxt meeting of the Auxiliarv. The time came, and the contributions were duly turned over to the treaturer. Some members brought two or three dollars, and the total amount waB really handsome and encouraging. Then of course, the good women fell to relating their experiences in earning the money. One had done this and another that ; But Mrs. Allen said nothing. Finally her next neighbour asked : ' How did you earn your contribution, Mrs. Allen ?' ' I got Mr. Allen to give it to me,' 'Oh! oh!' cried several voices at once, and young Mrs. Stpith said, «' Why, that wusn't according to the agreements ! We were to earn the^ money ourselves. I shouldn't call it earning it if' I got my husband to give it to me.' Perhaps you wouldn't,' said Mrs. Allen. ' And then...

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. Maize fob Seed. — In selecting maize for seed the BUCooBBful American farmer takes as much care as if he were buying a horse. Tho seed is chosen from a patch of ripe Bt&nding corn which appears to have grown under tho beBt conditions. The ears are snipped off indiscriminately and carried to tho sorting-room, where the perfect eatB are selected and the huRks of these pulled down over the butt. The ears are then hung up and air-dried, but, for fear that the cob is not fully dried out, they aro subjected to the heat of a drying kiln at 120 deg. Fahr. until quite dry. Thus cured, no ordinary oonditions of temperature will affect the germ. The American seed maize distributed by the Department of Agriculture among Queensland farmers, and which has led to an outcry from Northern experi menters on account of its inferiority, was evidently obtained from a grower whoso only object was to sell that particular lot of maize, supposing it to be the only order he was l...

NEWS SY CABLE. A disastrous fire has occurred at a large store at Batavia, the damage being very large. AmongBt the stock destroyed were 55,000 kilogrammes of petroleum. The Marquisof Lansdowne, Viceroy and Governor General of India, publicly states that the mutiny , amongst the men of the 17th Bengal Regiment of Infantry stationed at Agra is not of a serious; nature. The whole of the members .of two com-'j panies of the regiment have been placed under arrest for insubordination arising out of their objection to the inclusion in the regiment of men from other regiments.

An Interpreting Voice. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

An Interpreting Voice. A good voice has a charm which enchains atten tion. No matter what may be the topic of the speech or the theme of the song, there is a physical advantage in a well-toned voice. Shakespeare hinted at that influence in ' King Lear.' Her voice was ever soft. Gentle, and low, an excellent thing in women. In his essay on ' Eloquence,' Mr. Emerson says that ' The voice, like the face, betrays the nature and disposition, and soon indicates what is the range of the speaker's mind.' He illustrates his opinion by an anecdote from the Persian poet Saadi. One day a person with a disagreeable voice was reading the Koran aloud, when a holy man, paBaing by, asked what was his monthly stipend. ' Nothing at all,' answered the reader. ' But why, then,' asked the holy man, 'do you take so much trouble ?' 'I read for the sake of God,' answered the person. ' For God's sake,' rejoined the holy man, 'do not read ; for if you reBd the Koran in this manner you will destroy the splendo...

Meeting of Sheepbreeders at Muswellbrook. ( From our otoa Reporter.) This year a good deal of dissatisfaction was expressed at the conditions imposed upon sheep breeders at the Muswellbrook Show by the Asso ciation, in making it necpssary that the animals should be grass-fed and unhoused, and which no doubt had its effect upon the number of entries. The Committee of the Association took advantage of the breeders gathering at the show to invite them to meet and express their -pinions upon the subject. The circular put the irst question to be discussed: Would P. and A. issociations have more successful exhibitions of jheep if they placed no restrictions upon exhibitors yifch regard to housed or unhoused classes, but illowed all to prepare their sheep as they pleased, rhe meeting took place at Mrs. Barklay's Hotel on Wednesday evening, the first night of the show, md was largely attended.
