THE CHRISTMAS FAIRY, CHAPTER I.—SAVED FROM THE WRECK. She was the only one saved—a tiny, deli cate, fragile child, of barely three years old. A large passengor ship from Sydney; had gone to pieces in a heavy gale one September night, and this frail creature was found noxt mormng by a fishing-boat, lashed to a floating spar-, and the master made all speed for the little fishing hamlet of Alva, and carried his prize, all dripping and sense less. into the Tre^eunick Areas. , With no small trouble, the woi-thy land lord—wife lie had ...none—had brought the.' poor child back to hfe, and, now she was ly ing iu vi deep sleep, wrapped; in a blanket before the parlour fire-, and a group of rough men stood round her, talking iii muf fled tones., Hiindful. not to >vake'her. A* yet she had -only cried out for " Father, father! " and clutched convulsively a torn piece of paper, which had been found inside her likilo dress, and which they did not try to take from her.

THE APPROACHING MILITARY EMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 20 May 1885

TP APPROACHING MILITARY »E MONSTRATIOfi. In view of the immediate return of the Con tingent, it is under consideration whether tliia military display, which it is iutended should take place on the occasion of her Majesty's Birthday—or rather on the 25th instant, as the 24th falls on Sunday should not be postponed -until the day of the arrival of the Contingent. It would bo extremely inconvenient to bring down on two occasions within so short time, so large a number of Volunteers from all parts of the country "as are now enrolled. It is therefore now being considered whether the assembling of the troops on the occasion of the arrival of the Contingent- would not be more gratifying to the public, to our; sol diers who aro returning',_ and to the men who have enrolled themselves in such large numbers since their departure. The matter will be decided iii the course of a (lay or 'two. Full arrangements ' have been made for bringing down the Volunteers, so as tb en able them to take part ...

A GREAT UNDERTAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885

A GREAT UNDERTAKING. This year will see the completion of one of the greatest submarine engineering feats ever undertaken in Britain. The Severn tunnel was first begun by the Great Western j Railway sixteen years ago, and the accom plishment of this great work has been de layed by difficulties which a few years back would have been thought 'insurmountable. Twice has an enormous volume of water flowed the works, through theaccidentaltap pingof land springs ; besides which, fissures in the rock were met with which let the tidal waters into the tunnel. The river is two and a quarter miles broad at the site of the works, but the tunnel itself is nearly double that length, in order to allow for the neces sary gradient on either side, the crown of the tunnel being fifty feet below the deep est part of the river. The enterprise has. cost considerably more than a million of money.

BONES ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885

BOHES ON THE FARM. It is well enough known that bone, when ground fine/ makes on e of the best and cheapest manures. The need of farmers with abundant capital are well enough met in the commercial fertilisers; but the high price of this comminuted bone deters many farmers from U9ing it in a very large scale, «ven where there is no doubt thai the in vestment wonld pay. In a limited way the small farmer has the means within his reach, of reducing several barrels of bone to a fine powder every year. A solution of potash will reduce bone to a fine condition and make it available for the plant food. Most farmers still use wood for fuel, and the ashes from the fifteen or twenty cords used in a year, if saved, would reduce all the bones ordinarily within reach of the farmer. The old fashioned leach that used to stand at every farmer's back door for «oa[J-makirig was a good cont rivance for re ducing the bones. But any tight strong oask cir box will answer quite as well for this purpose. Wa...

HUNGARIAN JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885

HUNGARIAN JUSTICE, The way in which justice was'administered in Hungary some years agb forms the sub ject of an amusing story, which, though apparently only lentrovato, recalls to miud .the actual reality of Chinese justice at the present day. An Englishman, so this story runs, was anxious to see the administration of justice in Hungary, and an obliging pro vincial magistrate, who happened to have a prisoner awaiting trial, accompanied him. "The wretched creature was brought in with , tlie prosecutor >and a witness, and the fol lowing dialogue ensued:'-— Magistrate to Prosecutor : fl Well, sir, what have you to say ?" Prosecutor r " Please, your High Mighti ness, the prisoner stole my goose." Magistrate to Witness: •' What have you to say ?"

MARRIAGE OF A JEW TO A ROMAM CATHOLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885

MARRIAGE OF A JEW TO A ROMAM CATHOLIC. The S,M, Herald correspondent, "Stella," writing under date March 13, says;-*Consider able interest has been roused in Catholic circles by the dispensation just granted by the Pope, for the marriage between the son of the great Jew banker Baron Popper, of "Vienna, with a Catholic lady, The pap acy lias occasionally licensed marriage be/ tween Catholics arid Mussulmans, orPagans; but never before has it authorised a mar riage between Jew and Christian. The'con sent of the Curia is explained, however, by the fact that Baron Popper is the owner of immense estates in Hungary, and, as such, patron of twentyrseven 'Roman- Catholic benefices. His religion does not debar him from appointing incumbents to these bene fices, for the church in Hungary is'almost: free from papal control. However, the Baron is believed to have paid not less fhan 200,000 florins for this dispension. It is the NariciO'liere in Paris who has managed the affairs the general impo...

THE EMPEROR OF GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885

THE EMPEROR OF GERMANY. On the occasion of the Emperor William's birthday, the Standard made the following remarks:-r-If the Emperor William were nothing more than what is called, in the vulgar idiom of the day, a "connecting link" between our times and times which for most men are only a part of history, he would still be an eminently interesting figure. But, as all the world knows, ho' belongs to our days even more truly than he belongs to the days that dawned and died so long ago. He commands our respect not merely by what he still is doing, and by what he yet may do. We watch him, it is true, as a splendid monument of the events by which the present was shaped, but we contemplate him also as a guiding and abiding influence in the shaping of the future. He has been the great instrument in making the German Empire. That would be enough to stamp him as one of the memorable rulers of men. But he stands before Germany and Europe in a light more splendid than any that can' be reflecte...
