BOTH WERE SURPRISED. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 31 March 1898

BOTH WERE SURPRISED. An American bishop told the following story. He must therefore be held respon- sible for it.   "As far as I can remember," said he, "I       never was quite thrown off my ???? except on an occasion, and that happened to be by a Chicago reporter," "Ah, those fellows from Chicago are a sharp lot," suggested an attentive listener.   The bishop smiled on the interpreter, and there was a world of meaning in his smile.   "On this occasion," he went on, " I had delivered a sermon at an important church   service, and I concluded it by quoting the Lord's Prayer. After the service the re- porter to whom I have alluded, came round     to see me.   " 'That sermon, bishop, was one of the finest things I ever heard,' he said, 'and I've got all its main points for the paper, but I want the exact wording of your   presentation?, and I w...

A STORY OF KIPLING'S YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

A STORY OF KIPLING'S YOUTH. In current Kiplingiana many amus- ing items may be read. An unsym- pathetic English critic, in his notice of' Captains Courageous,' heads his article ' The Art of Catching Cod.' Anybody who, not in the fishing busi- ness, has taken a trip in a Gloucester smack off the Banks is amazed at Mr Kipling's, absolute mastery on the subject. How to take in cod, and even the'occasional halibut, is so accurately shown tliat it might form a separate chapter in a forthcoming bulletin'of the United States Fish Commission. The Academy tells a story of Mr Kipling w;hen,he was a lad. He went on a sea voyage willi his father, Lockwood Kipling, the artist. Soon after the : vessel, was under weigh Lockwood Kipling went- below, leav- ing the boy on deck. Presently there was a. great commotion overhead, and pne.of the ship's officers rushed down and banged at Mr . Kipling's door. 'Mr'Kipling,' he cried, 'your boy has crawled out on the yardarm, and if he lets go he'll drown.' ...

DECADENT SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

DECADENT SPAIN. In view, of tlio war now imminent be- tween Spain and America, the following detail« of Spanish nationality furnished by a correspondent, may provo interest |ing :-Spain is not only devoid of pro- gressive spirit, but she cannot muster up sufficient energy to govern herself : the electorate is an inert mass. She is the most backward country in Europe. For- tunately for her, while France stands as a buffer between her and aggression on the North, Great Britain protects her in the South at Gibraltar, otherwise it Ls notr unlikely that she would be in the position of the sick man whose inherit- ance is coveted by stronger Powers. Sho luis great resources, but in a modern serse is an undeveloped country. Tho people are. shamefully taxed : a peasant cannot bring his load of faggots into a town without paying octroi toll. The administrative departments are Oriental in their sloth and management. The hotels are bad. Fresh butter is obtained from France. Tho railways do as1 ...

A PYRAMID OF SEVENTY HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

A PYRAMID OF SEVENTY HORSES, Probably none of the remarkable sights witnessed at the greatest show on earth, at Olympia, London, have caused greater, wonder to the half million or so of specta- tors who have witnessed it during the last few months than the pyramid of horses introduced by Mr John O'Brien, one of the world's most famous equestrian trainers. In this scene seventy horses respond to the roll-call, and: take up their places on . the steps of a " circular structure in .. the middle of an arena. Each horse knows exactly its own place, as a boy knows his place at school, and,-go obedient are the animals that a hitch rarely occurs, At the top of the pyramid sits the trainer, seated on a -pure Arabian gray horse, once the property of a royal monarch, and below the seventy horse« march. round in opposite ;.cycles, . prodaciaa; 4M-.,-antrmmttjr:^ßi;H*J,: ^The preparation for this pyramid involved au immense amount of trouble, the trainer devoting several honra a day to the task ...

MR. CUTTEN IN REPLY. [To THE EDITOR "MORNING POST."] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

MR. CUTTEN IN REPLY. [To THE EDITOR "MORNING POST."] Sir,-I see that yo« have made a most unwarrantable attack upon me touching an experience I related, . as perhaps accounting for tho paucity of visitors to the Kamerunga Nursery. I would not trouble to reply "butthat those who do not know me, might think you have silenced me. " The occasion of my visit was just after attending the court sittings in May, 1895, and was well known to my travel- ling companions, the late Mr Kenion and Mr Jose Cowley, Newtown, Sydney. I- might not have taken, so much notice of the discourtesy, but that it was in such marked contrast to what I received from Mr Justice Cooper, and. the Court officials, and from Messrs Pryn, Bendick, Malcolm and others whose orchards or gardens 1 visited. Touching the mal od rous plant, with a flower like a large snap-dragon, it was closely, so cannot-say if it had testicu lated roots. I* doubt if Mr Cowley can define an orchid, It was at this time that I saw three fine br...
