Doctor Byles. The Rev. Mather Byles, of, Boston, who preached there in 1776, seems to have been as inveterate a joker aB Sydney Smith. . One Fast Day Doctor Byles had effected an exchange with a country clergyman, and each went on horseback to the appointed place. They met by the way, and Doctor Byles no sooner saw his friend approaching than he put spurs to his horse, and passed hiin at full gallon. 'What is the matter ?' cried tho other, in aston ishment. ' Why so fast, Brother Byles ?' Brother Byles shouted over his shoulder, with out slackening speed r ' It. is Fast Day !** One day, when he was busy in nailing some list upon his doors to exclude the cold, a parishioner called to him: ' Tbe wind bloweth where it listeth, Doctor Bylen !' ' Yes, sir,' replied the doctoe,. ' and man listethi where the wind bloweth.' : Ho was once arrested as a Tory, tried, convicted and sentenced to confinement on board a guardsbip, to be sent to England with his family in forty days.

IMPURITY Of the Blood leads to the worst and most dangerous disorders known to medical science. Impure blood is the cause of nearly every serious disease in existence, and one of the most painful of these is Kheumatism, which is also caused from the same thing. Rheumatism is Easily Cured if it is taken in time, by drinking, daily, WOlLiFJS'S ' ' . SCHNAPPS. Not long since a well-known professional gentleman in Sydney was cured of Rheumatism by this means, after being in bed for OVER S£IE9E YEARS- This is a remarkable case, and only goes to show that if people suffering from Kheumatism would only try this simple, inexpensive, and efficacious remedy they would soon find relief and permanent cure. The same may be said of Neuralgia & Nervous Debility. If people, instead of applying to Quack Doctors in such cases, would only drink, say, 2 doses a day of W^DlLiFiE'S 8CHMPPS, they would soon find their nerves braced and their whole Bystem purified and invigorated, .... .. . y ' ......

The Kabvles. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

The Kabvles. The Kabyles of the Berbers, some tribes of which are giving the Spaniards in Morocco no little trouble, are a brave and warlike race. They are said to be descended from the ancient Numidians, and certainly they exhibit the same dauntless and fiery spirit that characterised that nation. Inhabiting the mountainous regions ot tsaroary ana tne northern portion of the great desert to the number of between three and four million, theBerbor tribes that profess allegiance to the Sultan of Morocco are subject to no definite control, and their wild spirit of independence and impatience of restraint prevents the advance in civilisation to which their high physical organisation and intelligence would otherwise entitle them. Thousands roam the desert, constantly shifting their tents, and driving their, flocks and herds before them. Others, again, live in clay huts, and in the villages the houses are often built of stone. In appearance the men are strongly built, though spare of fles...

On Snobs. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

On Snobs. Snobs never value people for themselves bnt only for their money, tbeir connections, the letters they write after their names, or tome outward and visible sign of respecta bility. Indeed, there are thoBe which seem to be incapable of valuing their fellowmen by anything except tbeir clothes. xnere as a story tola ot a rersian prince which well illustrates such ? worldliness. Dressed as a poor man this prince went to a feast. He was pushed here and there, could riot get to the table, and had soon to with draw. On going home, he dreBsed himself ia his best, placing jewelled slippers ou his feet, and putting on a clotb-of-gold cloak. Then he returned to the feaBt, where, mutters were immediately altered. The guests made room, and the host, ruBh ing up cried, ''Welcome my lord ! What will your lordship please to eat ?' The prince's answer was very expressive. Stretching out his foot, so tbat his Blippers sparkled and glittered, he took hie golden robe in his hand, and said with...

A Professional Gamester. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

A Professional Gamester. Major-General John Scott of Balcomie claims a high place in the list of professional gamesters. He was for Bome time member of Parliament for Fifeshire. In married life he was not altogether fortunate, for his first wife ran away from him, and he was compelled to undergo the expense of obtaining a a divorce ; but in every other Btage of life he wns dubbed 'a man of wonderful good luck,' and his career has been tersely summed up as that of 'a notorous gamester who acquired numerous estates.' He is said to have won £200,000 at White's Club in St. James's Street, 'and at the time of hia death was considered the wealthiest commoner in Scotland.' A striking instance of his imperturbability is on record in the pages of the Gentleman's Magazine for 1776. He was playing one night in a tavern in Edinburgh, when a messenger brought him the new3 that he was bleBsed with a daughter. He turned to the company with the words, ' You see, gentlemen, that I must be under the ...

Mozart's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

Mozart's Wife. The wives of geniuses are so often not happy that it is pleasant to read of the tender, affectionate and cheerful companion that Constance Mozart found in her huBband. An example of the tone of hiB corres pondence with her is this gay littio letter : ' If I should tell you, dear, adored one, all that I say to yonr portrait, you would laugh at my folly. When I take it out of its case, I say, ' God bless you, aear ncue uonsrance ! wocl ireep you, amiable rogue, little curly-head and pointed nose, my joy and my grief!' And when I must separate from the dear picture, I Blide it slowly, slowly into the case and say, 'Wait, wait, wait, wait !' Then when it has quite disappeared, I say, ' Good night, dear little friend ! Sleep well.'' He waa a most gentle nurse when Constance was ill. At five o'clock he stole out of a house on tiptoe to go for a ride on horseback, but never without leaving under Constance's pillow a little note some thing like this : i ' I wish you good morn...
