Imperfectly Rehearsed. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

Imperfectlv Rehearsed. William M. Polk says, in his life of Bishop Polk, that when Lafayette, in 1824, made his memorable tour through the United States, many amusing in cidents accompanied his passage through North Carolina. General Polk, the governor,' and a cavalry escort, under command of General Daniel, met the distinguished guests near the Virginia line. There was much handshaking and speech-making. Lafayette spoke but little English, and understood leBS. He had retain' d a few phrases, such as 'Thanks!' 'My dear friend,' 'Great country!' '* Happy man !' ' Ah, I remember !' And though be usually uttered these in an effective mannerj they were sometimes ludicrously malapropi3. At Halifax the cortege was met by General Daniel, who had stationed a company of soldiers by the roadside, flanked by the ladies who had assembled to do honor to the gueBt of the state. It had been arranged that the ladies should wave their hand kerchiefs as soon as Lafayette came in sight, and when Danie...

SINGLETON. Sudden Death.— Another old resident of Single ton has been called away to join the silent majority, Mrs. Clerihew, widow of the late William Cleriliew, of George-street. It appears that Mrs. Clerhew, who had attained the age of 75 years, had been suffering from a cold for several days, but she did not aeem it sufficiently serious to obtain medical aid. The old lady rose from her bed at the usual time on Saturday morning, and as was her wont lighted the fire in the kitchen, and afterwards fed her fowls. ^ In the meantime a young lady named Bliss O Brien, a dressmaker, who was occupying a room in the house, also got up, when Mrs. Clerihew complained to her of not feeling well, and stated that Bhe would lie down, and requesting Miss O Brien at the same time to make her a cup of tea. Miss O Brien complied with her request, and some 20 minutes after Mrs. Clerihew had partaken of the tea Miss O'Brien re-entered the room to see how the old lady fared, when to her astonishment sh...

A Head Master on Modern Education. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

A Head Master on Modern Education. Mr. J. D. M'Clure, M.A„ head master of the Mill Hill School, preaching at Highgate, on April 1, said : If you would be great mentally, if you would have a strong intellect, if jou would be wise, able, powerful, you must endure hardness. At times I am driven to fear, and the fear is not a pleasant one. lest in our anxiety for knowledge we are losing sight of this fact. There is a growing tendency amongst us, I think, to take things easily. Books are no use to us 5 we only want abstracts. We cannot bear to read even a column of the newspaper unless it is broken up for us into sensational headings. We want, in other words, our knowledge on the tit-bits principle short paragraphs of a few lines. But the effort to acquire, the effort to master this seems to be lost sight of, and so we find people advertising ' paint ing in twelve lessons,' French or German in three months. These are hideous travesties, gigantic lies — it is impossible. There is only one...

TAMBAR SPRINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

TAMBAR SPRINGS. Obituary. — As the news spread last Wednesday afternoon announcing the almost sudden doath of Mr. James O'Rourke, there was a general surprise and sadness in our midst, as the deceased gentleman had met his death in very peculiar circumstances. It appears that Mr. O'Rourke was proceeding to the wedding of his grandson, Mr. Louis O'Rourke, when the vehicle in which he was driving collided with a stump, and he was thrown out, and it is supposed the wheel passed over him. The poor gentleman was quickly conveyed to the residence of his Bon, Mr. John O'Rourke, but, notwithstanding the utmost care and tender nursing of friends and relatives, he passed away about 4 p.m. the same day. The deceased gentleman was attended in his last moments by the Rev. Dean Sullivan, of Gun nedah, who had come out to celebrate the marriage ceremony above alluded to. Mr. James O'Rourke was 85 years of age, and was greatly esteemed by all who knew him, and when we say that Mr. O'Rourke was both...

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

TAREE. During the last few weeks the weather has been of a moBt cheering kind, the days being delightfully warm, and the chilly evenings and mornings evid ently betoken that ' Jack frost' is not far distant. To communicate important items of news for cor resuondence is completely out of the question, as nothing stirring is at present going on, and if times are getting a little better, it is certain they are progressing at no great speed. By some accounts, many gold-seekers are return ing from Coolgardie, but those who went from this river ' to seek' their fortunes in the West,' have not yet returned to give a good or a discouraging account of what is now known as the ' gaol' of Wt st Australia. It is certain that Bome lucky born men drop on to a few stray nuggets occasionally. Many men are plying a busy task washing the sand on the sea beach for the precious metal, but whether successful or not they keep tho result of their experiments to themselves. For some time past a few have be...

MERCURY JUNIOR. THE IRWINS AND THEIR HOUSE. IN SIX CHAPTERS. CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 19 May 1894

MERCURY JUNIOR. The Irwins and their House. In Six Chapters. CHAPTER IV. More than nine months of Peggy's experiment had passed by on that J une evening when a heavy rain-storm pelted down in Dayville, pouring from eaves, collecting in ever- widening puddles, and giv ing to the meek-looking railway station a most wretched aspect. Sheets of water ran from the platform to the street, where they sported like minature brooks in wagon rnts left by the vellow omnibus. The ticket-agent, in peering up the track, rashly thrust his head from a rear door into a small Niagara, that deluged his' cap and adorned its brim with a wet fringe that trickled down his cheek most disagreeably. But the nine twenty-five train from the nearest city and other points west arrived in time in spite of the weather, and paused a moment with its cus tomary tumult and air of general importance. Only one passenger alighted— a tall, slender girl, who carried easels and mysterious sketching appliances strapped into a ...

Making up Time, The car roolied from side to side, and sometimes it seemed as though all the wheels on one Bide were off the track at once. The conductor staggered al ong, .catching hold of seats now and then to steady himself, and the pallid railway official stopped him. ' Conductor;' he said, ' this is an awful rough stretch of road.', 'No rougher than -It has always been,' replied tho conductor. ' There's something like 40 miles of it just the same right ahead of us.' ' But aren't you running frightfully fast ?' asked the pallid official, catching hold of the window-sill to keep from being thrown into the aisle. ' We're doing pretty well,' returned the conduct or, as he grabbed hold of a seat to keep from diving into the official's lap. ' We're making up time. The stations are some distance apart along here, .and it gives us a chance. We've got to get in on (time.'

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

COONABARABRAN. The Progress Committee held a meeting in the School of Arts last week, when several questions of more than ordinary interest to the townspeople were considered. An application was made through our senior member, Mr. Sheldon, to have a new wall erected round the Gaol in place of the one which does duty, and which in the first instance was only | erected as a temporary structure. It is altogether unsuitable for tbe object which it is supposed to do duty, and it is certainly altogether out of place when compared with the splendid building which it surrounds. I have no doubt, though money is scarce, the Government will see the necessity of complying with the request of tho Progress Com mittee through Mr. Sheldon. — Tho advisableness of taking steps for the formation of a Fire Brigade was also considered.

Early Evidences of Man in The Nile Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

Early Evidences of Man in The - tETxle Valley. Mr. W. St/ Chad Boscawen in his fourth lecture, at the British Museum, on Oriental arcbaology, discussed early Egyptian history. Afc the very beginning of the Pyramid age (about 4000 b'c.) the dynastic Egyptian (he said) afforded a curious paradox, inasmuch as there was. then a civilization higher in many respects.than afc grander periods. The analysis of the hieroglyphic inscriptions, as well as ethnological researches, showed that a racial conflict — probably peaceful— had taken place. The white roce had entered the country bringing with them a simple, but highly developed civilization, and the negro race tbey found there was soon reduced to a position of inferiority. The discovery of flint implements and indi cations of settlements afc a height above the Nile level on the edge of what was once the great prehistoric Nile, showed that the residence of a man in the Nile valley must be carried back to a great antiquity. Dr. Petrie's disc...
