Reminiscences of the Indian Mutiny. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
Reminiscences of the Indian Mutiny, Most readers of Mr. Kipling's inimitable military studies must have longed to come across one of the old soldiers who spun for him the yarns on which he has based his inventions. Few of them, how ever, can have had any very real hope that they would ever encounter such an incarnate human document. Yet, strange as it sounds, Messrs. Macmillan have just given to the world a volume of reminiscences which brings us into personal eon tact with exactly the sort of man who must have supplied the material for Soldiers Three. Battle scenes and camp-life from the officer's point of view we have had in hundreds, but here, almost for the first time in literature, we have a soldier's book about war. Not merely, be it noted, the book of a man who has served in the ranks — of such there are plenty — but the book of a typical normal private soldier, — a man who dug his bayonet, like the rest, into his enemy's bowels, who, like his fel lows, gossiped by camp-fires...

Frogs live on land the greater part of the year, and do not retire to the water till the cold nights set m, when they retreat for the winter to the bottom of stagnant pools.

They are so tenacious of life that they will continue to live, and even jump about, several hours affcor their heads have been cnt off.

DISTRICT NEWS. PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESrONDBNTS.] PATERSON. Mr. J. F. Holden came forward last night as a candidate for Durham, and addressed a meeting of electors in the Paterson School of Arts. Mr. Usher Tinkler occupied the chair. Mr. Holden stated that he came before them as a freetrader, a believer in Single Tax, compensation to publicans in the Local Option question, and adopts the Labour Platform. He enlarged on these topics for the space of half-an-hour, and then gave over. He had expected the aid of Mr. W. E. Johnson that night, a warm supporter and advocate of Single Tax, and, depending on him, he was himself unprepared to speak at length on the matter. Some laugnaDie incidents occurred dviring tne address, when the smart questions of some of the electors fairly puzzled the candidate. The meeting was well attended, but otherwise unsuccessful for the candidate. Mr. W. S. Bradford, manager of our Commercial Bank, who has been away on leave of absence for several weeks to recruit his...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. DIRECTION BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
LETTEES TO THE EDITOR. DIRECTION BOARDS. Sib,— If I knew the proper person to apply to, I would write personally to him and plead for thtt placin' of direction boards at the cross roads in the neighbourhood of Maitland, and especially on the Paterson side. But as I do not I wish to state through your columns that ifc would save the public a -rreat deal of disappointment and annoyance if a board showing the road to Paterson were placed at the turn-off to Maitland Vale. It has happened that friends of my own have more than once taken the wrong turn for want of a sign-board there, and have consequently been put to much delay and inconvenience. Ab far as I know, New South Wales is unique among civilised countries for having no such things as Bign-boards to her cross roads, and I respectfully commend to the proper authorities the suggestion that they should be supplied, at least in this neighbourhood.— Yours truly, J. SHA.W. Paterson, Feb. 20, 1894.

Grand Conversazione at the Town Hall. This afternoon the Grand Conversazione Floral and Musical Festival and Sale of Work in aid of the funds of the Wesleyan Church was opened in the Town Hall by the Mayor of West Maitland, Mr. H.

THE ANARCHISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
THE ANARCHISTS. English authorities have not been hasty in dealing with anarchists. Indeed it was com plained by some journalists that the Home Secretary had been too lenient. Aa for instance when last If o member Mr. Aisquirh permitted a bodv ol Anarchists to assemble in ; Trafalgar Square to commemorate the deaths of ' the Chicago Martyrs.' Eaglund has been for bo long a time recognised aa the home of the outcasts of svery nation, that ehe cannot easily shake ofi the old habit of welcome. However, the time has come for » change. And a change has been made. The gentlemen who aim at a reconstruction of society by means of dynumite are finding that even m free Englnnd they are not having their own way. The Buglish fashion is not to make a iuhs noonr a tning, cue to no it quietly. But the Anarchists were shown that the thing was being done. The supervision of the police over them was as constant as »fc waB irritating. Detectives mingled among the habitues of the bare to which anarchis...
