(ai.i. riaim T2f.sf.uved.) WHO WAS TO BLAME? BY AMELIA E. BARB. ■Nature intended the face of Donald Houston for a handsome face; but when lunw it it was racked by fierce passions, nnd I tliought it a very eviJ countenance. We were travelling from tlie- Uio Grande back to the eastern settlements of Texas, and stopped one noon at a small village. Only a feiv cabins ivere in sight, but ■ around one of them T noticed an unusual number of horses tii»d. Jt was not altO' gethor curiosity that led me to it; I tliought it probable that either sickness or an accident occasioned the gathering, ■ nnd that the medicine-chest in our camp might be of service. But as soon as I entered the log build ing I knew 110 medicine could avail the still, covered fiauve lying upon the rude pine table.

BURR A WANG. UNVEILINQ OF MEMORIAL, TABLET, Sunday last at Burrawang was a day which will long cling to the memories of the residents of that township and sur rounding district, on account of the unique and solemn associations connected therewith. For some wfceks past a strong committee of residents, headed by the Rev. D. T. Smith, Rector of Burrawang, have been soliciting and collecting con tributions towards the erection of a memorial tablet to immortalise the lives of two young men who, until several years ago, had lived in Burrawang, but at the call of their country had nobly offered their services to fight her battles, braving even death itself in the endeavor to up hold the honor and the flag of Britain; and, although others of their fellow countrymen were-allowed to fight and return to their homeland unscathed, yet these two fell victims to the bullets of a relentless foe, and their graves on the African veldt silently contribute two more instances of the gallantry of Britain...

HIS LAST JOKE. The following incident occurred in a plaeo' of public refreshment the other night. There were three men standing at the bar,when a pedlar entered and called for a drink. The manager was just leaving .the premises at the time ; but, spotting thu pedlar, he whispered to the other cus tomers that he would play a trick on him by giving him a bad two-shilling piece. Uoing up to his victim, he purchased a knife. " Oh, never mind the change, I'm in a hurry," he Bald, as he -rushed out of the shop. The pedlar scrutinised the coin, and, with a merry twinkle in his eye, ordered drinks all round.: .The manager's wife supplied the re freshments all right, and,taking the bad tivo Hhilling-pieee, handed over the change.

A HANDFUL OF PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

A HANDFUL OF PROVERBS. I ' Just in time " is the brother oi " Ju3t too late." It ia ahvnyH possible to do one's best. The old umbrella seldom gets lost. I Fail in love with whom you please, but be very careful whom you marry. Men should be judged only by the temptations. He who carries a guinea in each pocket walks between two friends. The man who cannot beat the 'donkey cents its saddle; it ia not always the real culprit that gets the blame. There are two classes of people in the world—people who ride bicycles and those who dodge them. Sympathy ia like a kiss—good for nothing until it is divided between two. Aflirni, but deny not; for truth is greater than thyself. Don't put up your umbrella before it rains. Onecsn never tell what Btyle of ugli ness an artiBt will admire. Who makes friends gives sympathy; who retains friends possesses discretion. To poke fun is sometimes to poke a fire.

HOLDS A MORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

HOLDS A MORAL. ' - J- ' - '• Once upon a time a donkey fell into a hole, and, after nearly starving caught, sight of a passing fox,-and implored the stranger to help him out " I am too small to aid you " said the fox, " but I will give you some advice. Only a few rods away is a hig strong elephant.' Call to him and he .will get you out in a jiffy." After the fox had gone the donkey thus reasoned': "I am very weav from want of nourishment. Every move I make, is so much loss of strength. If I raise my voice to call the elephant I shall be .weaker still. No, I- will not waste my substance, that way. It is the duty of the ele phant to come without calling." So the donkey settled himself back and eventually starved to death. Long afterwards, the fox on passing the hole saw a whitened skeleton, and remarked—" If it be that the souls of animals are transmigrated into men, that donkey will become one of those merchants who can never afford to advertise." • '
