LI HUNG CHANG'S BULLDOG. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

LI H'TNG CHANG'S BULLDOG. An ajiusing story is' told of Li Hung Chang in connection with Uis visit to Europe in 1696. Out of respect to the memory of General Gordon, the Chancellor placed a wreath at the foot of his monu ment in Trafalgar Square. The Gordon family, desirous to show their appreciation of the act, cudgelled their brains to think of a suitable gift for the great man. At lost one of Gordon's nephews, a great lover of dogs, hit upon the idea of send ing Li Hung Chang a prize bulldog, of which he was the owner. The dog was sent just as Li Hung Chang was return ing to his own country. Some months later a letter was received from the Chancellor, in which he thus expressed his thanks. ' I was much touched by the splendid present you were good enough to make me; the beast was magnificent. Unfortunately, my digestion is not equal to such a delicacy, but my suite enjoyed it thoroughly.'

Once his assistants heard him 6igh heavily, and looking up, saw the doctor glaring at two glass receptacles on his table. ' What is the matter, doctor ?' asked one of the youngsters.

ALMOST INCREDIBLE. In the life of Sir George Grey, one of England's explorers and statesmen, is a pleasant story of the meeting with some boys in the Natural History Museum at South Kensington. Lads and lasses were his delight. ? Thoro is something in old age/ he said, ' that likes to have a young mind clinging to it/ He took creat oleasnre in linger ing at the museum, and watching the stream of visitors. One day he saw half a dozen boys gathered about an interest ing specimen. Presently they noticed Sir George, and a delegate approached him with a request : 4 Please, sir, can you tell us the name of the creature ?' Strangely enough, it was a specimen which he had sent home from Australia. He named it, and then the lad asked : « Where did it come from ?' He told them that, and the next question came : ' Who killed it ?' A pucker gathered on Sir George's face, and he hesitated, arguing with himself : ' If I tell them, they'll think me an im postor, and perhaps discount the other info...

Sir Horace Seymour, a widower and a very handsome man, who chanced to be seated near, lifted the fair one in his arms and took her from the chapel to his room6, where he left her in charge of his house keeper. .The next Sunday another young lady fainted, while on the same day of the week following a third damsel succumbed, in both instances the ladies being carried out by the gallant knight.
