A Comedy of Errors. CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 19 May 1883

A Comedy of Errors.: /. CHAPTER II. ELPBINSTONE had been through the fire-him self, and the ordeal had left him a little hardened and roughened outwardly, per haps-with little care for, or belief in the graces of life, but with readier sympathy for the griefs and needs of others. } For Wilfred he had even womanly tender ness and patience. He did not remonstrate with hiB anger. Ho would busy himself for hours with books and papers, never ob truding questions or condolence, when it suited the younger man to reman at homo in moody silence. He would walk with him the whole long summer night* throiigh city streets or dreary suburbs, or where the moonlight silvered even the murlty Thames, and made old Chelsea doubly picturesque. Ho showed no resentment, and felt none, when sometimes his companionship was un graciously accepted, sometimes querulously, rejected. " No-I will neither quarrel nor let you quarrel, Wilfred," he would say, good humouredly. " You may cut up as rough as you plcaBo ...

The Aepean Times, Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, MAY 19. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 19 May 1883

fftptn Slimes, .Publinhod overy Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, MAY 19. THE Bum of £85,000 voted by the Govern ment for the duplicate railway lino from Parramatta to Penrith} will, without doubt, enhance the importance of the latter town in the course of a few years, to a consider ably greater extent than is at present antici pated by the majority. Even during the course of construction, which will probably extend over a term of several years, the advantages which will be derived by the business people, from those employed on the work will be considerable, but not in com parison to that wliioh will accrue frorn those permanently employed in managing a duplicate lino. Tho present staff of railway employees is certainly large, and it would appear to an ordinary observer that the men are often in one another's way, still thor# are periods when the whole of them are busily engaged, and to provide workmen for those occasions. The Government must necessarily employ a large number. How ever, e...
