Forbidden to Smoke. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
Forbidden to Smoke. I hear from Kussla (says the corre spondent of an English paper) that the young Czarina is so excessively averse to ladies smoking- cigarettes that, -not content with steadily refusing to smoke herself, hoping the hint would not be lost upon her people, but finding they still clung to the cigarette, the Empress has now peremptorily forbidden the use of tobacco to any female, lady or other wise, in the I3alace. Here she will doubtless succeed ; but the habit has^ taken too firm a hold upon foreign feml-' nine taste for even a Czarina to abolish. ,

More about Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 20 April 1898
More about Wheat. We hear that one of the best crops of wheat harvested in this district was that of Mr. Syl. Thornton, of Spring Creek, which returned an average of between 46 and 47 bushels to the acre. A few more wheat crops like that-of last season, with good prices ruling, and farming will become a profitable industry. ' ."'
Spain and America. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 20 April 1898
Spain and America. The American Senate, by 51 to 37, has adopted the amendment recognis ing Cuba as a Republic. Eight regiments of infantry havo been ordered to New Orleans, seveu to Tamara, seven to Mubilo, and six cavalry corps to Ohiilcamanga. The flying squadron which left Hampton Roads, and five patrol ships of the naval reserves, have b&lt;>en diu patched to guard the coasts of Mary land, Massachusetts, Michigan, and New Jersey, There was a prolonged session of the Senate on Friday. During the debate, Democrats endeavoured to imposo a mandate on President M'Kinley, leaving nothing to his discretion, nnd to force immediate hotilities. The majority of the Republicans desire a war, but do not desire to discredit President M'Kinley. The report that the rebel leaders, Generals Gome/ and Grurcia havo tendered their submission to Spain on condition that autonomy is grnnted to Cubn, is confirmed, the alleged reason being that the Cubans are discontented at Congress having d...

The Late Mrs. George Organ. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 20 April 1898
The Late Mrs. George Organ. This lady, who had reached well into the eighty fifth year of lior oge, and liad resided about three-fourths of hor life time in Wollongong, passed away to the life hereafter on Saturday morning last. Advanced though she was in years, she continued with few intermissions, fairly strong and active until within tho last few months, when prostration overcame her, and she gradually succumbed to deca}' of nature. Although rarely heard of in public, she was ono of tho truly noblo of tho earth, all the elements of a true woman and humble and devoted Christian being happily blonded in her nature and manifested in her everyday life. Of numberless good actions on her pnrt from time to time, perhaps tho only ono which she was unable to carry out on the principle of the left hand not knowing what the right hand did, aa was her practice and desire, was the granting by her of a beautiful piece of land for a site for the Bulli Hospital. Her husband (the late Mr. Gwrge O...

Wesleyan Sunday School. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 20 April 1898
Wesleyan Sunday School. For some time past the officebearers and ihe teachers of the Wesleyan Sun day School have desired to possess a library for the use of the scholars, and last Sunday afternoon the movement was inaugurated by a special service. The scholars were trained to sing, and assisted by their teachers they rendered a very pleasing programme of solos, duets, and choruses. The Rev. W. Brown delivered an appropriate address and explained the nature of the service, and asked for the co operation of the parents and friends, after which a col lection was taken up in aid of the school library. Many -of the boys and girls recited appropriate selections, and entered with zest into making the ser vice a success, which it undoubtedly was. ' It is intended, we believe, to have further services of a similar char acter in aid of the same object.
