THE GOOD SLEEP OF A BAD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
THE GOOD SLEEP OF A BAD MAN. In a cortain prison that we have all heard of lay a convict upon his narrow iron cot. He was to be hanged the next morning. Yet he ?lay there, covered by a rough blanket, sleep ing aa quietly and soundly as a tired school boy. Occasionally rthe guard in the passage outside peered between the bars of the cell, only to find his charge breathing deeply and regularly. This man had violated the law prohibiting murder ; yet ho had not violated tho physical laws governing his own body, and Nature rewarded him as if he had been the noblest of his race. That same night, less than a mile away, a rich man tossed and tumbled upon his luxurious bed. He waa a good and useful member of society, yet he could not sleep. And, , worse still, this happened to him every night. Sleep — that blessing which the Psalmist says, ' God giveth bis beloved,' was practically a stranger to this man. What ailed him? The tortures of conscience? Want of money? Tho fear of enemies? Nothing...
THE NEXT DISCUSSION. "Is it Better to Invest Savings in a Bank or in Life Assurance Policies?" [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
THE MXl DISCUSSION ' Is it Better to Invest Sayings in a Bank or in Life Assurance Policies ?' j Full consideration of this question and freo discussion will, wo think, be of value to the people at large. The forms of life assurance are now so varied that it is freely contended in somo quarters that they afford equal if not superior attraotions to tho Savings Bank or Funded Stook for those who require safo in vestments. Our readers aro invited to dis cuss tho question. It is a subjeot of interest to all classes and both sexes. As usual, one guinea will bo forwarded to the writer of tho letter adjudged to be the best. Letters should bo sent in as oarly as possible, but for the con venience of distant readers tho discussion will j not clcso uutil April 25. Writers must not j refer to insurance institutions by name. j
IN FRIENDSHIP MEN "TAKE THE DAMPER." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
IN FRIENDSHIP MEN ' TAKE THE DAMPER.' A.C.T. says: — 'But, although myself ono of the delectable female portion of humanity, 1 am constrained to admit from experience, that in friendship 'men take tho damper,' and aro more trustworthy than Womon. Most assuredly poor frail woman means to keep a secrot and merit the confidence reposed in her, but it often happens that when in a con fidential mood with dearest M— — — over a cup of tea, the spice of Mother Eve in her nature triumphs over discretion, and thoy revel in tho choice morsel. There is no vice that doth bo cover a man with shame as to be found false and perfidious in friendship, so the lords of creation are trustworthy, merely because they find honesty the best policy. In a staunch, truo friend give me a Bensible man, one, howevor, who is sensible enough not to fall in love, and spoil or cement the friendship, whichever it may bo, A cheque for one guinea will be forwarded to the writer of the letter Bigned ' Phyllis Fairplay,' ...
A WOMAN KEEPS A MAN'S SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
A WOMAN KEEPS A MAN'S SECRET. 'Hard Case' writes: — My experience is this : A woman seldom koepa a seoret for ' another woman, but a man's secret she will keep to the death, and, vice versa, a man will keep a woman's seoret, and, as a rule, oan bo entrusted with any confidence ; but I have known exceptions even to this rulo. Yet men will yery soldom ' put one another away,' but I am sorry to say I cannot say that for my own sex — women seldom spare one another. In matters of business though, I do beliovo women are quite as trustworthy as meu. Give a woman chargo of any business, and she will seldom give cause for doubt or forfeit the confidence reposed in her. For my own part, as far as friendship is concerned, give me a male friend, but I know soveral gentlemen who would far rather a female friend and con fidant than one of their own sex. Men and women usually prefer a friend of tho opposite box to repose oonfidenoe in, and I think they are right.

"AGES OF SUBJECTION PRODUCE INTRIGUE." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
'AGES OF SUBJECTION PEODTJCE INTRIGUE.' * most entertainingly discus-ge? the question : — The character of woman ie, in my qpinibn, so much more complex than that of iliata reply to the qupntjion psked can Qjjljr be given with qualifications. Thug the character of a woman in ljer friendships o.nd dealing with men is a very different thing from her charaoter when dealing with those of her own sex. Take a\yay the rivalry that seems always to a greater or less degree to exist between women, and a strong incentive to duplicity or nntrustwarthipess is at once removed, which agrpea with what I think I am safe in stating aa e. fact, 'viz., that men find woman far more trustworthy aud staunch than other women do. With this, and another proviso that love be left out of the questiont and my answer to it is that woman, from the very nature of her relative position and condition as regards man, is necessarily less trustworthy. What has been her position singe the earliest times that we have any...
MAN AS FRIEND AND WOMAN FOR HONESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
MAN AS FRIEND AND WOMAN FOR HONESTY. Thus ' Overplus ' Tho subject you have chosen for the discussion this week is rather embarrassing. Loyalty prompts us to defend the sex to which we belong, while hard facts may trend the other way. After due considera tion I am obliged to give my verdict in favor of the men on the first count. I do not think a 'man would stand by, or ;oin in tho fun, while his sworn friend's character was being dissected. It onoe chanced to bo my luck to arrive on the scene in timo to hoar my bosom friend touching off my peculiarities so ludi crously as to keep a select circle in a fizzle of laughter, which culminated in a roar, when the lively culprit turned and beheld my irate countenance. I could not see any comic element (in which I was singular), and the incident made me somewhat shy of female friendships. My next friend waa a man, and proved most trustworthy. _ It may have been, howevor, that more judgment was brought to bear in the selection. ? Women are v...
WOMEN NOT TO BE TRUSTED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
WOMEN NOT TO BE TRUSTED. Thus 'An Australian Lad': — So far I have never yet met a single woman who oould be trusted out of sight or hearing ; but per haps I have boen unfortunate. Men I con sider far more reliable in every way, for in nine cases out of ten when onoe a man (let lum be over so great a rascal) gives his word of honor to do something, you can be certain that he will do it, therefore proving himself trustworthy. But a woman will solemnly promise and then break hor word with the most charming effrontery iu the world. There is ah utter lack of real gonuino friendship between women — that feeling of goodfollowship so prevalent amongst men is conspicuous by its absence. Put two or three women together in a house for a week, and at the end of the seoond day they are dearest and beBt of friends, swear they love and always will love eaoh other as sisters 1 Such call one another all manner of pretty names, appear iu public with their arms round tho other's nook, wear the other'...
"AN EQUALLER." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
'AN EQUALLER.' 'Spectator' writes: — My opinion (bp.sed upon a very varied experience) is : Put her in business side by aide with man as a person of trust, and she will stand more than a favorable comparison. A woman may neglcct to replaoe a noniinal sum, but never, like rgany a Build ing Society promoter (even go so far back as tue south sea Hubble) doe3 sue wreoK tne homes and happiness of thousands. And npw as to tho nufder subjeot, 'friendship.' I think we may with safety give the palm to the sterner sex. A woman, with the calmest manner possible, can flatter you, smile upon you, and agree with you in general upon any subject, making quite a confident and a friend of you. But if you bo not a favorite, what a difference in your absence. Man, on the other hand, very soldom aots freely towards one to whom he has a dislike or is not well acquainted with, or slates a person of only doubtful friendship too muoh in his absence, actuated, no doubt, by caution, thus showing consis tency ...

EAST SYDNEY DEFEATS GLEBE. The contest between East Sydney and Glebe at Wentworth Park proved attractive to a largo gathering of spectators. The local team had a total at 157 to face, and as they had lost four wickets for 11 runs on the opening day, their prospects looked sombre. However, the remaining batsmen played up very well indeed, and mado an interesting struggle, inougn in tue enii cuey were in a minority of 37 runs. L. Poidevin jnado 32, and T. Cobcroft displayed his chiiracteristic stouewalljng form to perfection in making 29. Ives also made 10. C. Turner aud M. Shea secured four wickets each and G. Pitt bagged two for East Sydney.

THE MILITARY SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
THE MILITARY SCANDAL. It is impossible for anyone to regard the result of the Close case a3 satisfactory; The charges upon which Captain Close was tried were that he had been guilty of ' conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman ' on the grounds of 1. Se duction. 2. Suggesting an illegal pro cedure. 3. Suggesting an illegal operation. 4. Communicating a disease. The Court martial acquitted Captain Close on the first two charges, but found him guilty on the third and fourth. The Cabinet subse quently reviewed the verdict, and con firmed the findings on the first two charges, but refused to confirm the findings on the other two. This virtually acquits Captain Close on every charge, but, afc tho same time, the fact remains that the Court which took the evidence and heard all the witnesses found him guilty on two of them. It seems somewhat strange that the Cabinetshould be placed in the anoma lous position of a court of appeal from the decision of the Court-martial and interpose bet...
