Forty Years on. the Throne, POLITICAL CHANGES DTMRSRO THE HEIGHT OF THE EMPEHOE OF AUETMA-HTTNGAEY. The Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria Hungnry baa just been celebrating' the 40th anniversary of his ascent to the throne. Al though he has reigned for so long a period, he is only 58 years of age. He sucoeeded his uncle, Ferdinand, when he was a youth of 18, in 1848. , As he looks back over these 40 years, the Emperor must feel that greater political changes have taken place in his Empire, per haps, than any other European State has un dergone in the same time. When he assumed, as a mere lad, the Aus tri.an crown-which he did as a result of the abdication ;of Ms uncle, Ferdinand, and the refusal of his father to take the throne Austria Hungary was a despotic monarchy. The power of the Emperor was at that time almost, if not quite, as absolute as that of the Russian Ozar.

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 April 1889

PERSONALITIES. The Sultan never uses a plate, but takes his food usually with a spoon or his imgern directly from the little - kettle in which it is cooked. King Kalakaua of the Sandwich Islands has become a prey to the cigarette habit. The influence of his example has affected Queen Kapiolani, and she rolls a cigarette with the skill of a Spanish senorita. The late Lord Stratford de Redcliff© died in his ninety-second year, after one of «the .most' laborious of lives. At no period of his long career did he ever sleep more than three hours at a stretch, and during many a night he never went to bed at all. The first Earl of Salisbury came into power in the reign of James I., and ever since it has been the practice in the family that the eldest son should commemorate that monarch's favour by bearing the name of James. Every Marquis of, Salisbury until the pre sent has been so named, and the Prime Minis ter had an elder brother James, who died in 186-5. The lady who writes under the ps...

NOVEL. , ?-4- * Dunraven Ranch. BY CHAHLES KING (in Lippimotfs). GHAPTEQ VII. -{Continued,.) There was instant rush and commotion.

Perry held Ins pistol high in the air, threatening his nearest assailant, yet loath to use further force. He was still in the broad glare of. the parlour lights,-a conspicuous mark ; eager hands had grasped {lis bridle reins close to the bit, end he could not break away ; and then missiles began to fly about his devoted head, and unless he opened fire he was helpless.

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 April 1889

CHAPTER IX. At just what hour the post surgeon returned to Fort RoBsiter that night no one seemed to know. He was present at sick-call, and im perturbable as ever on the following morn ing, and the few officers who were at head quarters after guard-mouating were able to affirm that the colonel had been courteous as usual in hie greeting to the medical officer, and that uothing whatever had been said about his being away so late. Captain Stryber came home soon after midnight, had a brief talkwith his colonel, and went over to the stables to,inquire intoGwynne's con dition before he went to bed. Parke came into Perry's room after morning stables, and said that 4 something was up,' -he didn't know what. Later in the day Perry was sent for by Colonel Brainard, and found the commanding officer in consultation with Captain Stryker and two other troop commauders. At their request he repeated the story of his adventure at Dunraven, be ginning with his instructions to the men he left at the ...

Kurrajong. A tree that which is doing well at the Kurra jong is a date plum. About Central Cumberland it was regarded as a sort of novelty, but it is known to have been in the Kurrajong for fully 16 years.

The Kurrajong Orangeries. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

The Xurrajong Orangeries. Fruitgrowers of Central Cumberland (says the Aim us) have realised during the past one or two seasons that in the Kurrajong orchardists they have to compete against men who are learning how to grow good fruit. It seems a strange thing to say, but there are a couplc of retail fruit dealers in Parra raatta who will astonish you by handing you a first class orange with the remark, '. That is from the Kurrajong, sir." Fancy fruit dealers in Pana ma!, la going all the way to Kurrajong for their fruit, when it is lying around their own district, some times in hundreds of cases under thfr fruit trees or upon the trees ripe enough to be picked, if a market were available. Two things account for this. First, the Kurrajong fruit grown in the valleys comes in very early, while the mountain fruit wiud3 up the season; and, seccond, the Kurrajong grower has a more business-like way of disposing of his produce, and seems content to jog along with a fair profit. Notwithsta...
