Uncle Boll's Lesson. Madame Betsey Patterson Bonaparte, the sister in-law of an emperor, waB born in Baltimore, and after living many years abroad, returned to hor native land, where she passed the last years of her lifa. She was a woman of great beauty, but of an ungovernable temper. A writer in the Boston Transcript tellB how her BenBe of humor once enabled her to accept a reproof graciously.

Travels of a Derelict. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

Travels of a Derelict. The utunmer Arcadia, passing to the north ward of Scotland, recently picked up off the Orkneys a three-masted iron British ship, and towed her into Kirkwall. The iiame ofthe veBBel was the Cubana. She had sailed from Newfoundland in October, 1892, with a cargo of copper oie for Swansea, but encountered a flncceBsion of violent storms, which bo knocked her about that the crew depaired of saving her, and got themselves carried off by a pass ing ship, That was on November 14, and the Cubana was not expected to float until another sunrise ; but somehow or other tbe ship took charge of herself, and made wonderful weather of it, although November and Decem ber were bad months on the Atlantic. A fort night after she was abandoned, the Cunard steamship Aurania sighted her, with her rigg ing all wrecked, but the hull as good ob ever, in the same parallel of latitude, bnt seven de grees more to the eastward. On December 9 she had driven three more degrees easterly, and ...

Needed Reform. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

Needed Reform. The Eev. Mr. Adams, of Leominster, was an eccentric character, and had no hesitation in speaking his mind, either to congregation or to individuals. Ho was about to exchange with a neighbouring minister, a mild and inoffensive man, who knew the bluntneBB of his disposition, and said to him in advance : ' You will find some panes of glass broken in the pulpit window, and possibly you may suffer from the cold. The cushion, too, is in bad condition, but I beg of you not to say anything to my people about it. They are poor, and disinclined to think of repairs.' Before Mr. Adams left home last Sunday morn ing he filled a bag with rags, and took it with him. When he had been in the pulpit a few minutes the draught began to make itself felt, and he de liberately took a handful of rags from his bag and stuffed them into the window. The sermon dwflt upon the duties of congrega tions towards their ministers, and he soon became very animated, and brought down both fists with tre...

GRESFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

GRESFOHD. Koads. — Our district roads, generally speaking, are in very good order. We notice Mr. Doyle, one of the last two newly-elected candidates, lost no time in getting a gaDg of men at work on his por tion of tho road from Vacy to Woolard's Hill. The road was s idly in need of repair, and wo are not surprised to hear that both Mr. Doyle and the overseer were puzzled where to begin. However, a steady gang is at work, and the road is becoming daily more passable, One goo'J innovation is tho use of wide, strong mattocks or hoes in place ofthe former narrow picks, whereby men can do much more work, as can be seen by the work of this gang, all of whom appear to be good men, well acquainted with their work, and not a ' chummy' amongst them. Cricket. — A team of married men played a team of single men at Eccleston on Saturday last. These teams were picked from Haltou, Eccleston, and Gresford Clubs, and the match ended in a decided win for the. bachelors by 112 runs on first innings. ...

MUSCLECREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

musglecreek. It is very rarely that any news concerning our little village appears in the columns of the Mercury . Although news is generally rather scarce in country places, I shall endeavour from time to time, in future, to let tho reBt of the whole world know how we are progressing. Ploughing is getting along favourably, although a little more rain is needed. Stock look well, and there is plenty of grass and water. To establish a creamery at Musclecreek, ha3 been long talked about. I know of no place more suit able for one. If some of our energetic residents wero to tako the matter in hand it would not be long till we should havo the matter in full swing. A few years ago I attended a rather stormy meeting regarding the establishment of a creamery in a certain placc. A great number of farmers wore against it; but energy carried the day. The creamery was started, and, I believe, now receives tiie hearty support of farmer and grazier for miles around it. And I firmly believe we shou...

The Power of Love. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

The Power of Love The little fellow had been born an hour, and was snugly nestling again»t his mother's breaBt. The mother, proud and happy, was smiling up to the father's fnce ; he, proud and happy, was smiling tenderly back to her, nnd, bend ing down, kissed ber cheek. She gently pressed his head to the bundle on her arm, till his lips touched the wee red head. Then he straightened up and walked from the room, tears of gladness and of sweet wonderment in his eyes. The mother turned her face to ber babe, with tender look and touch, thinking meanwhile of the father. Already, on the first day of life, the influence of the child waB felt, though he knew it not. The child was named Joseph. Little Joe thrived. He was tbe centre of that domestic circle, and the home was happier by his pre sence. Tbe love given to him was reflected in th* lives of bis parents. With the tender ness and responsibility of fatherhood, the man became more sincere and brave. With the grace and dignity of mother...

A word and the quarrel's smooth again ; A. time, and the parted clnen and kiss ; And even death i9 cased ol pain By hope of a reunited bliss ; But a love outgrown is stripped of this.

"Bias." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

'Bias.' (By J. T. Bosken, in tM ' Speaker.') People called htm ' Soapy in ironical allusion to his unwashed Btate. Some would ask him when he was going to sporfc his two ' greys' and retire. The boys hailed him as ' Golden Syrup Sandwich,' which was supposed to contain a delicate hint at the treacley nature of his ordinary diet. Certain ifc was that Tobias, or, as he was commonly called. Bias, took very little notice of this, but went patiently on, existing in rags and hardship. With his donkey tandem and shaky makeshift of a cart he hawked fish around the country-side, and when there was no fish to hawk he became a travelling greengrocer's shop, and when that line of busines was not brisk he sold scouring sand — for you muBfc know that Bias was a man of infinite resources in his way, and was certainly the most enterprising and active individual in his village. Ifc was said that he was left an orphan at any early age; that when offpred by the person the ohance of going to school he ...

An Emperor's Humility. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 26 May 1894

An Emperor's Humility. When Madame de Krudener was in the zenith of her spiritual powers, says Charles Ford in his biography of her, she exercised a wonderful influ ence for good over Emperor Alexander, the most autocratic of all the rulers of Europe. Napoleon had been banished, and Alexander was in PariB untangling the affairs of state. When one remem bers the barrier that separates the Czar from his servant, the following incident will illustrate a remarkable degree of humility : One evening when the Emperor was crossing the anteroom of Madame de Krudener's hotel, he turned to his attendant valet and asked him whother he had executed an order which ho had given him. ' Sire, I had. forgotten it,' replied the confused Joseph. ' When I give an order,' retorted the emperor, with great severity of expression, ' I expect it to be carried out, and failure cannot be overlooked.' When the Czar entered the salon, hia hostesB noticed that his manner was constrained. ' Sire, what is the matte...

Bridal couples are supposed to have a monopoly of Niagara Palls, and there are few to dispute it with tbem, but now and then Cnpid, unfettered, hideB himtherce, and poems are written in the lives of youths and maidens, set to the rhythm of the raBhing waters. Such a poem was that which Kalph Eeeder and Anne Martin inscribed one day before the roaring rapids, the towering cliffs and the great overhanging trees ns witnesses to their troth. They stood out on an impeding rock, far above the torrent, and in the temple of nature gave the word to each other that may never be gainsaid. .uear .anne, ne said, tor ne was a seri ous maD, not given to fine Bpeech, ' on thia rock we plight our troth.
