THE LATE SIR WALTER BESANT. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
THE LATE SIR WALTER BESAHT. Hero is a little picture of the dead novelist from the sympathetic pen of Mr. Stead : ' It was a pleasant-faced, kindly middlo-agod gentleman,' he t writeB, ' who looked up from his writing i as the vi.itor entered tho room. HI. ! tablo was litterod with documentr; - many quarto sheets of blue paper covered with writing lay in front of hun ; there wero proof sheets about ; books tilled tho shelves — books relating ! mainly to Palestine ; tho placeoonveyed - tho idea of work, and, above all things, | of literary work. A more welcome i-, greeting than that which this yonng r man received from the novelist ia not t to bo imagined. He had entered tho |_ room overwhelmed with awa; he left it, £ feeling that he had found a friend, a [ man to whom ho might turn in momenta ^ of doubt and difficulty, a man who was / frank and open-hearted, ready and [ willing to assist with advice and aid all 1 who might be engaged in pursuing the ?

DEATH IN LUXURY. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
DEATH IN LUXURY. Tho man cursed with everything that he wants in this world ia in great danger of being dead while he liveth. He has no need of thought, no need of effort ; therefore all the thrilling, throbbing life of thinking and of aotivity may not come his way. It is the people who have to work, and the people who have to think, who livo. Seneca tella of the rich fool who was lifted from hfs hot bath by slaves, and set in a luxurious couch, and who said, ' An eyo jam sedeo !' — ' Am I now sitting down ?' Luxury had not left enough life in him to know whether he was sitting or standing. And Jeremy Taylor said of such lives, 'They nevor make a voyage, though they linger long at sea.' Luxuries come in very pleasantly in their season, like a soft bed after a hard day's labour, but to live in luxuries would be like staying in such a bed day and night ; it is fruitful neither in j health nor In enjoyment.

THE TESTIMONY OF BUDDHA. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
THE TESTIMONY OF BUDDHA. Buddhist teaching, as represented by its earliest documents and traditions, starts from the position that man must work out his own salvation by the force of his own determination and will, apart from external or supernatural assistance. In this respect Buddha declared himself unable to render any aid to his dis* cipies. It) is tho office of a Buddha to proclaim the truth — truth into which tho ordinary man is incapablo of peno trating untaught : whether he hear and obey, and by acceptance of the revelation and submission to tho doctrine and dis cipline, achieve delivorance irom evil, deponds upon himself alone. Evil, moreover, is not evil in a moral sense, but is summed up in the one word existence, and in ail that it implies. This deliverance consists of detachment from all the objects of sense, for ail lust and craving for continuance of life, and u is not to do attainea oy mere asceticism, but by overcoming the passions, and by resolutely pursuing a nob!...
"TOMMY ATKINS," The Name Rarely Seen in the " Army List." [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
'TOMMY ATKINS,' The Name Rarely Seen in the ' Army List.' Although the narao of Tommy Atkins is so popularly associated with our soldiers, yot throughout tho 44 Army List' not a alnglo Thomaa Atkins up pearo. And, further, there ia not an Atkins at all amongst tho generals, colonels, majors, or ofiicors of lower staff appoint ments. In respect to commissioned ranks tho cavalry has no Atkins ; the artillery is without Atkins ; tho engineers own no Atkins. Thero is not a doctor Atkins in tho Royal Army Medical Corps, nor a parson Atkins iu the list of chaplains. In the Militia's long roll of officers Atkins is absont, not yet present amongst tho holders of commissions in the Yeomanry. Of the considerable number of men who havo rison from tho ranks there is no Atkins between tho covers uf tho 44 Army List,' and of the records bear ing upon South Africa's present heroes who aro living, and the brave doad beneath the veldt, the name of Atkins hnB indeed rarely been noted.

FRENCH CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
FRENCH CARDS. Of all ways of protecting an industry, that adopted by the Government of France for making a profit out of tho manufacture of cards must certainly take rank as being among the strangest. In the first place, there is no half heartedness about dealing with foreign competition, for the importation of cards is simply prohibited : whilo the manu facture is so hedged in by severe laws that it is in comparatively very few hands One of these hands, at least, is Governmental, for the paper on which these suits aro printed is manufactured by the Government, which insures its exclusive use by prohibiting the card makers from employing any other. Furthermore, the Government does not allow anyone to make the court cards, or the ace of clubs, tho plates for these belonging to the State, which merely sells the slips of printed paper to the makers, who have only to colour them and print the common-cards on the speoial paper which they have to buy from tho properly constituted authori ...
ENGLISH SCHOOL BOARD PROCEEDINGS. Monday is Washing Day. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
ENGLISH SCHOOL BOARD PRO CEEDINGS. Monday is Washing Day* ' You are summoned by the School Board for not sending your daughter, Mary Jaue Canter, to school on four consecutive Mondays; the charge is, I believe, correct P' 1 Quite, sir; and I nevor intend to sond her on any Monday, consecutive or not. Mary .Jane never has been to school on a Monday, and so long as I live Mary Jane never will go to school on a Monday.' And Mrs. Canter looked sternly ovor her mountainous expanse of chest at her diminutive judge aa she delivered her soul of this impertinent sentiment. ' May I ask why P' ' Monday is washing-day, Mr. Tem pest, * said Mrs. Canter, as solemnly as if she were announcing the Day of Judgment. ?Oh! ah 1 humph 1 I really don't see the connection.

MY HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
MY HOPE. The liglit lias faded from tho sky, And all the world's grown groy. My heart that once with joy beat nigh. Throbs dull and slow to-day. Love, did you know my heart would die When you had gone away P This earth onco bloomed a Paradise When wo walked hand in hand, N'nw Hnnnlnte and droar it lies For me a barren land ; I found my heaven in your dear eyes — Love, did you understand ? I'erchanco when joy has chased away The heavy mistB of pain, And in the light of God's own day The mystery grows jilain, The chance those unsaid things to say Will come to us again.
A BIG EXPLOSION. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
A BIG EXPLOSION. The tramcar conductor was hardly in tho best of humours. Someone had managed to give him a bad shilling, and ho had just discovered it; that waB why ho started the car before three women and a child had got much beyond the step. One of the women was exceedingly irate at such treatment. Tho conductor saw that as he started to collect the fares, but he was irate too. ' Look hero mum,' said he, as she tendered her fare, ' this child that is with you will have to be paid for as I well.' I 'I haven't any intention of paying its fare,' snapped tho woman. I 1 Then 1 shall put the child out,' j answered the conductor, reaching for | the bell-strap. ' You won't daro to do it,' flashed tho woman. Ting I The conductor brought the car to a stop, picked up the child, and deposited it outside, and then rang to go ahead. ? Well, mum,' he said grimly, 'you'll find your child on the pavement.' ' My child ?' snapped she ; 1 it isn't my child.' ' Whose is it, then P' gasped the con du...
CURIOUS TESTS. Electing a Mayor. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
CURIOUS TESTS. Electing a Mayor. It was the custom among tho Nostorian Christians, immediately upon tho con clusion of tho marriage ceremony, to carry tho newly-made wife to the house of her husband's parents, and place an infant in her arms, and three sets of baby clothes before her. If she suc ceeded in dressing and undressing baby three times to the satisfaction of tho critical matrons thero assembled, well nnd onnd ? hut if olio fnilnrl. shrt wn« Rf»nt ,0 her old home again, to stay there, a rife and no wife, until nble to face and pass a second trial. In olden days the burgesses of Grimsby tverc wont to decide which among them should bo mayor, by a vory odd process. Having chosen three of their number as eligible for the position, thoy blindfolded them, tied bunches of hay at their backs, and conducted them to tho com mon pound where a calf awaited tbeir coming. He whoso bunch of hay was first eaten by tho calf was pronounced most worthy of the mayoralty, and installed into ofi...
