NO MORE DIRTY FIRE-GRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
NO MORE DIRTY FIRE-GRATES. From a single electric conductor the householder of the happy future will receive his supply of ligbt, heat and power. Transformers at the point of its entrance into the house will divide the olectric fluid received in its 'raw' state and lead it into the proper chan nels. In the kitchen it will cook and boil with the deftness of one of Alad din's fairy servants. That room will no longer bo a placo of horrors with a red-faced, sour-tempered woman as the presiding genius. There will be no stove with gaping maw to ff ed with expensive coal, no smell of burnt grease; no nasty, sooty pans and pots. In an alcoyo with a chimney to carry off the odours of cooking will stand' a table of aluminium and enamel. Upon ifc will appear the various in struments now uaed, so that each will have its- electric hoater incorporated with its construction. Tho turn of a lever and the walor begins to boil or the meat to broil. Another turn and the pot . or pan becomes cool. The w...
WHERE WE BEAT ALADDIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
WHEEE -WE BEAT ALADDIN. Aladdin had but to clap his hands, and, behold, a company of slaves enter the room bearing salvers of smoking viands. To-day the modern descendant of tho lamp-bearer simply touches an enamelled button and out does the feat of the magioian. The wonderful task of inclosing the mighty evil spirit in a bottle has its repetition in the bottling up of the human voice in the photograph, and in the record ing of living actions upon the film of the kinetoscope. The proofs are at hand that before another generation succeeds the pres ent even these things will ba outdoue, even as the telephone outdid the won dera of the magnetic telegraph, once the height of electrical ingenuity, but now on the verge of being discarded a3 slow and antiquated. The dwelling house of the future will contain so many advantages that it will beoome almost a purt of the human beings who will be so fortunate as to occupy !t. It's own construction will be a marvel. It will.be absolutely proof ag...
THE MAGIC HOUSES OF THE YEAR A.D. 2.000. WE SHALL ALL RESIDE IN THEM [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
THE MAGIC HOUSES OF THE YEAR A.D. 2.000. ? $ ? AYE SHALL ALL RESIDE IN TTT-TCM I The modern dwelling of the future — by which is meant the homo of the average person, and not of tho ex ceptionally 'wealthy — will resemble, if not excel, the fairy palaces of children's story books. It is true that the wonders of Aladdin's lamp will not be repeated, nor will palaces be constructed overnight by geuii, but there will be ' modern conveniences,' as tho advertisement describes them, that will be the peer of any of tho magical contrivances of tho boyish hero of ' Arabian Nights.' The magician who is to perform these wonders, and do it in a prosaic, matter of fact way, is electricity. The telephone, the ^telegraph, the dynamo and the kinetoscope are every day ac complishing feats that require no rubbing of magic lamps, A button is touched or a crank turned, and, lo .' the voice of one thousands of miles away is heard, or a brilliant radiance fills the room. Mountains are crossed and eeas tra...
HIS OPINION OF THE MATTER [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
HIS' OPINION OF THE MATTER Admiral Dswey was always a high spiritod lad, and tho spirit of adven ture that was in him as a boy i3 il lustrated in a littlo incident of which Georgo Dewy s brothers toll. George wag sont one night down the valley to drive homo the cows from pasture. Ho drove in his father's old buggy, and Wm. Redficld, a friend, accom panied him. When they' reached Dog River, below Montpelier, they found it greatly swollen. The ford waa doop in water, and had been for some days, so that crossing was attouded by danger, though somo people had crossed over. Redfleld was afraid to cross tho ford, and cautioned Dewey not to try it. ' What man has done man can do,' said tho future admiral, and with that ho whipped up the horse. In tho stream the buggy top floated off the springs, and tho boys wero obliged to crawl out on the horeo's back, They finally roaohod shore, arter narrowly escaping drown ing. When Dowey got homo tho doctor was awny on a professional call. Tho boy di...
PITIED HIM FOR THE NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
PITIED HIM FOR THE NECES SITY. Cardinal .Manning used to tell a [luuTWuwi story ai^-his-es-rly- eijpor-. iences as a temperance advocate. Ho was returning one night from some meeting when he met an Irish labor ing man, decidedly the worse for liquor. Dr. Manning stopped him. 'You are an Irishman?' said the Doctor. ' Indeed, I am, your rever onco,1' was the answer. ' And a Catholic ?' added the Doctor. ' Sure, what else would I be ?'' answered the inebriate, ' Then why don't you take the plrdge and keep from dis grasing your religion ?'' asked Dr. Manning. ' I only take. a drop now and then, and I am not so far gone,' answered the Irishman again. Then the future cardinal explained that he was a priest and ho had taken the pledge. The man crossed himself. ' Ah, then,' said he, ' I never thought I'd see such, a bad. day, to meet a priest that had fallen bo low as to havo to. take tho pledge; God help vour rc-voronce,1' said tho Irishman, and walked sadly, if uncertainly, away.

TRAPPED TRAIN ROBBERS. A BRAVE LITTLE WOMAN'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
TRAPPED TRAIN ROBBERS. A BRAVE LITTLE WOMAN'S STORY. Iu 1873, when but a «irl of 18, 1 left my home in Ireland und went to America to fill the position of night operator at a small station on the Pacific Railway. It was a dreary, desolate spot in the midst of a desert. The only build ings at thi station, besides the depot, wore the section house, occupii d by a line foreman and a few 'ChiueBe labourers, a water tank, and a coal shed. The day operator and agent, a mere boy, slept at tbe section house, 200 yards distant, bo that during tbe long dreary nights I was alone in the station. No. 4 express train, bound east, was due at 2.15 in tbo morning, but it never stopped unless signalled, and, as this was the only train during the latter portion of the night, you can imagine my lonely situation. The superintendent of the division, a buoyant light-spirited young gentleman, came over the line at frequent intervals and cheered me up with promises of a better position when a vacancy should...
IN OTHER WORLDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
IN OTHER WORLDS. The people on Neptune are often in doubt as to whether or not the sun is shining. They are so far away from tho great central o'rb that it is » mere speck in the sky which only men with good eyesight can see. Plenty of planets that are swinging about in the heavens look bigger than the sun to the people of Neptune. Those on Uranus are little better off. Upon Mercury, on the other hand, tbo sun comes up like an immense new moon, and it burns with an intense glare, and is so hot that the people there can cook their breakfast by the light ot the morning sun. When the Bun sets on Mercury it is like a large part of the heavens dropping out of si|;ht,and a cold breeze immediately springs up. Even on Venus the sun looks so big as to scare an inhabitant of the earth could he be transported to that planet. From Mars it looks a good deal smaller than it does from the earth, but a yoar on Mars is equal to two years on the earth. Another curious thing about Mars is that it bus ...
UP AT THE NORTH POLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
UP AT THE NORTH POLE. 'It's like enough to be true. If Nansen got to the Polo with fair ease, tin' thought he could get back tho same way as he went without much trouble, he'd 'a been a fool to go for the Green land Sea to come back that way.' ' He would. He'd waut to get down to 75 degrees before be was sure of easy sailing.' ' Aye, aye ! Get out of the ice the best way you can, say I.' . ' Were you ever in it, cap'n V asked the flrst Bpeuker, taking bis pipe from bin mouth and smiling sceptically. '.Once, but it was enough. It wan very nearly all up with me,' was the annwer. ' How was that ? Did you got ' nipped ' ?' , The old man leisurely filled bis pipe before replying to tbo last questions. The four other members of the party watched him with good ' aaturcd curiosity. They were in the smoke-room of a Hamburg hotel. It was the house most frequonted by captains and officers of tbe British ships lying in the harbour. Unptniu Watson, oF the Nor man Queen, and Gi orijo Kxmouth, his...
ONE KING'S WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
ONE KING'S WAY. Frederick II. made himself very unpopular for a time by putting a tax on coffee. As be was one day riding along tho Jagerstrasse he noticed a crowd of people assembled about a large placard hanging on a tree. ' Go and see what it is about,' he said to the groom attend ing him. ' They have something posted up about your Majesty,' said the groom returning. Frederick rode up and found a caVicaturo of himself, a coffee-mill between his knees, grind ing with one hand and picking up fallen beaus with tho other. 'Hang it lower,' Baid the King to his groom — ' lower, that they may not hurt their necks looking at it.'
AN ELEPHANT AT AUCTION [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
AN ELEPHANT AT AUCTION I remember once (says a contributor to the ?' Gentleman's Magazine ') an elephant was being sold by auction in execution of a decree, and for some reason or other it had not its proper ' mahout,' or driver, on its back. The sale was taking place on the large ouen ground or plain around the (Indian) courts, and a small crowd had assembled to listen to the bidding. What with the noise and the absence of its propei keeper, tue animal began to show signs of irritation, which of course only increased the excitement and the noise among tbe people. Suddenly it ran atone of tho spectators, knocked him down, and was proceeding to tread the life out of him, when one of its ' grass cutters,' standing by, struck it with a spear and drove it off. The driver on its back then got fright ened, and, watching his opportunity as tbe elephant went under a tiee, seized hold of a branch aud swung himself up. The elephant tried once or twice to push the tree down, but not being able...
[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
[?] The Government will win, ?! Keid -will once again ' diddle' Lyne. - ' The venerable looking exPost master-General Dan'O'CoOjjor is only 54 years of age. Mb. Ba'bton thinks the opposition of Mr Sydney Smith ia only what might have been expected from Mr. lleid. The opposition to Barfim is only a political dodge to keep the Federal leader out in the cold as long as possible. : ? Keid expects a majority for the Government on the censure motion of at least ten, and says it might be any thing from that up to twenty. ' The only Jones' has had two tries for Parliament. At last general elee tion he polled ' splendidly' at Dar lington, getting three votes. .Most of the members will be seen to make speeches on the censure motion for the benefit of their con stituents, so it will be late in the week before the censure debate closes. The brilliant ond brainy Barney Wise ia not to be left rest. Political enemies are after his scalp, and his Ashfiold seat is to be challenged on the grounds of ...
PERSONAL PARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 September 1898
PERSONAL PARS. The land question was on the boards in the time of the Spartans. When Lyourgus -was supreme the lots of land of all citizens were unalion able. .. i .Some queer Sydney signs— ' Copy books and boot protectors ;' ' Ice cream and clothes dyed here ;' ' Con densed milk vendor and insecticide.' Emily Soldeno, the, ?? well-known Sydney lady writer, is very masculine in appearance, and judging by her looks and writings Nature evidently made a mistake in the gender of Emily. Australians are the second richest people in the world. Great Britain's wealth per head is £299, Australia second with £256. O£ course we own this amount only on average ? ' the thing a hen lays on,' an the schoolboy once put it. Oi*E of the best W.A. journalists— now editing a goldfield's paper — was at one time a pedagogue in N.S.W. Woman, lovely wotriun, was the cause of his severing hia connection with teaching life, as the respectable De partment of Public Instruction could not shut its eyes and ears...

Then the other got to work with hiB whip, and the pusher responding, the pair cue at each other until the post was pas3ed, and the udge declared a dead , heat. The stakes were divided, so there was no chance of a return flogging match between the jockeys^ Stewards took no notice of the affair, al though it went on right under their noses.
