THE GOOD SLEEP OF A BAD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

THE .GOOD SLEEP OF A BAD MAN. In a certain prison that we have all heard of lay a convict upon his narrow iron cot. He was to be hanged tho next morning. Yet ho lay there, covered by a. rough blanket, sleep ing as quietly and soundly as a tired school boy. Occasionally the guard in the passage outside peered betwoen the bars of the cell, only to find his charge breathing deeply and regularly. This man had violated the law prohibiting murder ; yet he had not violated the physical laws governing his own body, and Nature rewarded him as if he had been the noblest of his race. That same night, less than a mile away, a rich man tossed and tumbled upon his luxurious bed. Ho was a good and useful member of socioty, yet he 'could not sleep.' Aud, worse still, this happened to him every night. Sleep — that blessing which the Psalmist says, 'God giveth his beloved,' was 'practically a stranger to this man. What ailed him? The tortures of consoienoe? Want of money ? Tho l'ear of enemies ? Noth...

PUBLICATIONS RECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

PUBLICATIONS RECEIVED. 'A Sunless .Heart7' (Ward, Looke and Bowden), is a. strong piece of literary work — artistic, -too; and yet crude: Tho book depicts people whose lives aro passed iu shade rather than in the sunlight. Some are faith fully drawn, notably Gaspar and Gasparine ; it is not unnatural that, such strange creatures should evolve from such peculiar and inind warninsr surroundinera. The storv of Ga'smir arjd Gasparine reads like a true history — true in part, at any rate, if not the whole. The character of Lotqa. is -strong and beautiful, yet inconsistent. The girl who had the courage- to face the wor]d, as she did at 1-7, with ' an eueuinbnuice,' aud to fit herself by hard study lpr a high position in a college, would hardly break down when she had accomplished so much, and the path for furthor progress wasmado smooth. She would npt giv.e up when well armed the fight that she had foiight determinedly when defenceloss, when muoh younger, when less worldly wise, A man cam...

WOMEN'S VIEWS. And Chat Upon Various Interesting Topics. WANTED A SHAKE DOWN FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

WOMEN'S VIEWS. And Chat Upon Various In teresting Topics. 'WANTED A SHAKE DOWN FOR WOMEN. I've often wondered why someone don't start a women's hotel, a women's board ing-bouse, or sOnie sort of a respectable Bhake down 'for women only' in Syduey. We all know the difficulty a single woman travelling has in getting ac commodation in the city. Those who haven't got friendB here, or who are not known to fame, are driven from post to pillow. The reply is nearly always 'Eull up,' or 'No room, ma'am,' until one is driven to despera tion. Women dou't oare, as a rule, to confess this openly, but itisoneof the grievances of our sex. Single women in business have also great difficulty in getting into good boardiDg-bouses. Landlords of hotels and boarding-house keepers confess in a loud whisper that they ' don't like women.' Certainly, under any circumstances, wo aaunotget half the courtesy and consideration that is given to men. Of course I know that. there is a certain class of ' festive '* ...

THE STRAIGHT TIP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

[?] ' Ev ery Bullet lias Its Billet.'.' Tho man who drove dull care away found that it came back sharpened. Man is a Sign post. He can point out the right way for others, but he can fc go himself. Nobody will use other _ people's _ ex perience, nor has any of his own till it is too late to use it. Man is a good deal like a fish. You know the fish would never get into very serious trouble if it kept its mouth shut. ? 0 ? ? There is nothing more truly insinuating and deferential than the waggle of a little dog's-tail in the presence of a big dog with a bone. A man may forget home, kindred, friends, and almost everything else ; but he never forgets the first time he went to a barber'B shop to be shaved. It isn't the man with the biergest library who is the best informed. Generally he has to yield gracefully to the man who has only a score of books and reads them. ? o ? A man will unblushinglv comb his hair over a bald spot on the top of his head, and yet expect a fruiterer to put his s...

THE CORSET QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

THE CORSET QUESTION. (TO . THE. ED1TOB . OF THE ' SUNDAY (TIMER.'! Sib, — Having read the. letter in your last issue, I think the ninoteen-iheh lady right in respect to suitiug one's own taste about wear ing stays. But I think it is a fearful habit to tight lacc. It stands to reason . that, tight lacing injures one internally very badly, and, if XomjemoH oi/uuieu uidii lmhj m xeroses lusy would stiuu those ladies who do tight-laoe, for after marriage they are sickly and delicate wives and only handfuls of trouble. I firmly believe the. larger.- number of ailing women after marriage have crippled themselves by bracing themselves in to a ridiculous size when single. Men-that have any sense can pretty weli tell when they do it, and if they were to object women would rather loosen their corsets than lose their sweethearts. As for it being ^considered fast wearing corsets, it is a most ridiculous idea, for they are a support, aud when used properly are an improvement to any lady's ficure...

MAY BE DANGEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

MAY BE DANGEROUS. These is no advantage in having Friday a Parliamentary sitting day. On the other hand, there may be some danger, If it is determined to sit ou that day the only way to make the sitting useful ig to allow private members business before tea and Government business after. If that were done the Government would see to.it that members mustered in fair numbers; if it is not dope, the sitting will be used by a handful of men who for lack of something better are content to idle their time away in Macquarie-stveet on that day, and who may, by indulging their fads, make New South Wales ridiculous. With Tuesday before tea and' Friday before tea for private mambera' business, and all the re mainder of tlie sitting time of the week for Government business, work would be done, and Friday's sitting could perhaps be justified. But to hand over Friday for a few members tc- play political shinty is absurd, and can in no way be supported in view of possible results.

A HARBOR TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

A HARBOR TROUBLE. A question has been raised, and probably none too soon, regarding the insanitary effects likely to result from a portion of the harbor being made the receptacle of increasing quantities of sewerage and other substances injurious to health. Up to a certain point, doubtless, the natural ebb^and flow of the tides, and the saline ?properties of the sea water might be expected to neutralise any evil effects likely to result from quantities of offensive aud noxious matter being deposited close to the foreshores of the city ; but it seems self-evident that there must be a point at which the accumulation of offensive and deleterious drainage may become too great to bo counterbalanced by the purifying influences referred to. It is, at all events, a patent fact thab even now the odorous emanations from the water at. Circular Quay when the tide is low are anything but agreeable, and appear to convey a warning that all is not right. The fact that the sewage and refuse from fou...

A NECESSARY PRECAUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

A NUCESSARY PRECAUTION. It is satisfactory to find that the police authorities are still exerting themselves to suppress the sale of adulterated liquors. In a case recently heard it appears that some so-called braudy, which was purchased by Inspector LentliH.ll and submitted to the Government analyst for examination, was pronounced to be not brandy at all, but a concoction of water, alcohol, burnt sugar, oil of cognac, and bhe higher alcohols {alias fusel oil). As such it was quite unfit for human consumption. Ib was probably made from illicit spirit, and was decidedly notbrandy. The valueof the flask full of stuff was nil. The fluid would be only useful for polish, or, as the magistrate facetiously observed, to polish people off with. A noteworthy circumstance, however, in con nection with this case as well as others previously tried, was the nature of the defence raised, and which simply amounted to an attempt to shift the responsibility from the retailer to the merohaut from whom...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

LOCAL GOVEBNMENT EXTENSION. Although by a species of fluke the Local Government Bill has passed its second reading in the Assembly with unexpected celerity, it was hardly to be expected that such a measure should be permitted to run the gaunt let without encountering1 more or less violent opposition from various direc tions. The Bill, whilst it will confer new and what ought to be regarded as valuable privileges, at the same time calls upon the recipients to dis charge oerfcain obligations whioh have hitherto been performed on their be- i half by the whole of the taxpayers of the colony, and it goes without saying that there are many persons who have a constitutional objection to taxation of any sort, even although I the proceeds are to be expended i wholly for their own benefit and under their own immediate direction, j Properly b peaking, money paid for such purposes 13 not taxation at all, and the mere fact that the objectors ' would be the first to protest against the withdrawal...

REVIVAL OF THE DUELLO. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895

REVIVAL OP THE DUELLO. Although one swallow does not make a summer, it seems strange to hear of the revival of the practice of duelling in j British communities, It is nob, however, so very long since Australians were startled by the issue of a challenge by a prominent South Australian politician to another member of the Legislature, and now the cables inform us that Mr. Whistler, an eminent English painter, has resorbed to the same method of settling a quarrel with Mr. Georcjo Moore, an author and art critic, and because the latter has failed to reply to the challenge, Mr. Whistler has denounced him as a 'runaway.' Whatever there is to be said for the duel as a mode of obtaining satisfaction for wounded honor, and apart altogether from the ethical view of the question, there is no doubt that it is altogether an anomaly in the present conditions of Bociety amongst English-speaking pooples. When murder and bloodshed were virtually regarded by the law as offences to be dealt with acco...
