The Mistletoe Bough. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 April 1898
The Mistletoe Bough. The A merican mistletoe differs from the English mistletoe in the independence of the sexes. In the European, the male rtini female flowers grow upon the same plant, hence berries may be found on every plant. In America each Hex lnb-urs for itself, anfi grows *11 separate plants ; hence there are many plants wholly barren. Neither are the berries so lai'ge as the European varieties. On account of this difference In the be haviour of the sexes, botanists make -a distinct genus OH the American Phora dendron, instead of Visuam-Pboraden dron, signifying: " a thief on a tree," its parasitic, nature being referred to. Like its ICuropean brother, it is found on any tree frequented by birds that use the berries for food.

It may be said- that he appears to; be; unhappy ..with it;, but .I am quite siire'i.tbaf- ;the' state of his health is his main Interest in life, and witihout it the world would be to him an aching void, which even whist would not suffice to fill.

Horrors of War. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 April 1898
Horrors of War. A correspondent of the " Times" said that the road from Plevna to Tellche during' the Russo-Turkish . War was rendered melancholy by the perpetual,re currence of unburied bodies. We grew callous at last," he wrote ; ■' so callous that a dead body touched us no more than a milestone might have done. Murder with violence awakened a languid Interest. I do not know how I can more clearly or more terribly Indi cate the horrors of the journey than. bjr telling the simple truth about that one matter—that the sight of the body of any poor wretch done to death by famine, or beaten to death by cruel stripes,- or stabbed, or shot, or stoned/ awakened in the hearts and minds of half-a-dozen Englishmen no more than a momentary sensation of pity or of anger. We had' grown accustomed to these things, and emotion had grown tired, and would not be stirred by ^ny one of them." Many, of these dead bodies were the bodies of Bulgarians slain by the Turks ; but the latter also had suffere...
