MAN AND WIFE. THE WIDOW AT THE LION. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

MAN AND WIFE. THE WIDOW - AT THE LION. I was a country youth, and raw When first I cast my eye on The fairest sight I ever saw— The widow at the Lion.   Sho dawned upon my astonished gazo Like Hebe, sweetly smiling, And charmed me in a hundred ways, Each more and more beguiling. Her lily hands brought nectar rare. Her own October brewing; '.. I' faith, before I waB aware, ' My heart was out a-wooing. She spoke, and never nightingale Sang sweeter to my thinking; A subtler draught than nut-brown ale Was that I sat a-drinking. A brimming cup of fancies fleet How bitter my awakening! Yet every drop, I swear, was sweet, And Time has paid the reckoning. Now let a man drink deep or not. He cannot long keep sober Who mixes in his pewter pot Young love and old October. —Charles H. Taylor. WHY SHE DARNED HIS SOCKS. A well-known statesman, who has repre- sented his distriet in Illinois for a number of years; had the support of his wife in a manner which won for him tho reputation ...

A TREE THAT SLEEPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

A TREE THAT SLEEPS. Near the western border of Dupont circle, in Washington, D.C., stands a tree that goes to sleep promptly every night at 7 o'clock. The tree is known an the albizzia julibrissan, having been christened so by an Italian botanist in honour of the Albizzi family in Florence. It is, however an original of Japan, uuu iu Known mere as me ailK tree, probably on account of the silky appearance of its blossoms. Soon after 7 o'clock in the evening a general motion is noticed in the foliage, a quiver or trembling of tho Wninn ate leaveB. Each leaflet begins to stand up on edgo, und pairs with the ono opposite. Thoy claap each other tightly and then cloae up, so that each becomes a coverlet over half of tho preceding one. The entire transform ation takes place in about twenty minutes and usually at about 7,30 the respiratory organiam of this treo hangs limp ana droop ing on the branches. Small branches kept in a dark room t promptly close at 7 p.m.

NOT THE ONLY CASE OF THE KIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

NOT THE ONLY CASE OF THE KIND. Deacon Ironside (after the service) : Elder, I got in a little late this morning, but I don't think you had any right to take it out of me in your sermon. Elder Keepalong: Take it out of you ?   How ? v' Got back at me. Ain't that what you did ? I hadn't hardly got inside tho door when I hoard you Bay, ' And now cornea the worst of them all, tho chief rebel against the government of heaven.'

PERILOUS [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

PERILOUS Tiger fighting is one of the most popular sports of Java. The manner of hunting the animals, which differs from that employed anywhere else, is thus described by a travel- ler.     The tiger is set down in a trap in the centre of the Allen-Allen, or great square, and is surrounded by a triple ur quadruple line of spearmen, about a hundred yards dis tant from him. When all is ready a Javanese advancoB very slowly to the sound of soft music and sets fire to the trap, at the . same time open ing the door at the back part of the cage, which, by the way, is too narrow for the tiger to turn in. Ab tho fire begins to singe hiB whiBkers he gradually bacltB out. Tho man, as soon as ho has opened the door, begius walking toward tho orowd at a Blow pace, and the Blower he is the more applause does he gain. The tiger, meanwhile having backed out of hia burning prison, is rather astonished at finding himself surrounded by hundreds of people, eaoh pointing a spe...

MORE WONDERFUL THAN MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

MORE WONDERFUL THAN MAN. Man generally flatters himself that his anatomy is about the highest expression, or rather, effort of Divine skill: yet that of the insect is far more complicated. No portion of our organism can compare with tho pro- boscis of the common fly. Man can boast of 370 muscles. Lyonet, who spent his whole life in studying a single species of caterpil lar, discovered in it 4,000. The common fly has 8,000 eyes, and certain butterflies 25,000. M. Pouchet treats it as an established fact that ao fine are the sensory organs of ants that they converse by means of their antunme. Consequently the strength and activity of insects fur surpuas ours in pro portion. In the whole field of natural science there is nothing more astounding than the number of times a fly can clap its wings in a second. As the fly passes through apace at the rate of six feet in a -second, it iiv-st in that point of time vibrate its wings 500 or 600 times. But in rapid flight we are required to belie...

A FIREPROOF TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

A FIREPROOF TREE. A Government report from Colombia contains a description of a tree known as the chaparro, which is said to possess the quality of being fireproof. It grows on the vast plains of Columbia and the north of South America, called savannas, extensive districts which are parched with heat except during the rainy season. It has long been the cus- tom to clear the ground for the new vegeta- tion which springs up ao luxuriantly on these plains after the rainy season by means of ires— and such fires, miles in extent, kindled by thn herdsmen, destroy everything in the shape of vegetation except tho chaparoo tree, which survives to afford a welcome shade to an almost treeless region. It is a small tree, seldom growing to more than twenty feet in height, with a girth of throe feet, and it owos its protection from flro to the nature of Its hard, thick bark. The bark lies on the trunk in Iobo layers, which do not readily conduct heat to the more delicate parts of the struc ture. ...

NO WONDER HE OBJECTED. A certain learned professor in New York has a wife and family, but, professor-like, his thoughts are always with his books. One evening, his wife, who had been out for some hours, returned to find the house remarkably quiet. one nau ieic tne cnuaren playing about.but now they were nowhere to be seen. She demanded to bo told what had become of them, and the professor explained that as they had made a good deal of noise he had put them to bed without waiting for her or calling u maid.

REALISTIC PERFORMANCES. It was the turn of Miss Elita Proctor Otis of the Schiller stock company to tell a story, and this was her effort: — ' You ask mo for some incident of my career that has left a lasting impression on my mind. I have not had a very eventful life on tho stage, but I have had one or two ox pcriences of the character that you describe.

HOW LADY CYCLISTS ARE TREATED ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

HOW LADY CYCLISTS ARE TREATED ABROAD In some European cities and countries there have been enacted laws in regard to women riders of the wheel that in our coun- try would seem curious. Russian women aro not even allowed to possess a wheel excepting by royal consent, and this ia quite sparingly givon. In fact up iu yix monins ago oniy a very tewwomen, and they were of the royal family, were allowed to rido. In Franco most women rido; but all who wish to uuite with a touring club muBt pre sent, with thu petition to join, a signed de claration of their husband's full consent. Across tho line from them, in Germany, the wheel-women must pass a cycling cxaminution before the city police before they are granted a permit to ride upon the public streets, and, too, thoy must carry with them upon all cycle journeys their olficial document. , The lady cycliBt of Florence, Italy, is com pelled by inw to carry upon hci wheel two bells to warn pedestrians, and in Vienna no wheolwoman can take her ...

RICH SPECIMENS FROM THE UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

RICH SPECIMENS FROM THE UNIVERSITY. The playful Diarist in 'Cornhill ' is rich   in mild anecdotes of the kind that pass at a dinner of University men. An Irish Catholic deacon was sent to baptise a baby. ' In the cabin he could find no water, but there was a pot of tea. ' Tea,' he reasoned,   'contains water, the rest is but accident,' and proceeded to pour out a cup. But it was strong, even to blackness, so he went in search of water, and having found some, watered the tea down to a more reasonable colour, christened tho baby with it, and re ported thu. circumstance, as a case of con science, to his superior. It had not occurred to him, having found the water, to use it by itself. ' Other Btorics were donnish. One waa of an undergraduate's telegram: — ' I have missed my train ; what shall I do ? I will como by the next.' 'Another, of a tutor's letter of condolence sent to a bereaved parent. Thia was un kindly attributed to Oxford. The tutor wroto:— 'I am ...
