Married the Wrong Man. CHAPTER 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

Married the Wrong Man. CHAPTER I. The girl was decidedly pretty with oul being exceptionally beautiful, and she had the knack of dressing rather showily at a small coat — a very neces sary art to learn in these days, when purses arc light and fashions change every day. She was wearing a large coarse straw hat with a bunch of corn and poppies for trimming, a white cotton dress made by her own clever little fingers, and a light laco stole whose cost might have been reckoned In pence rather than shillings. She looked fresh and clean, and smart, anil amiable, so that the aver age man would turn his head after her, in passing, and think to himself: 'A nice little girl, that. Wonder who she is?' ? Her own sex,'while not denying a certain meed-' of- admiration perhaps, would b&ve expressed it differently: 'Rather pretty, biit spoils herself by lawdrv.jfinery,' and the vain attempt to imitate: fexperisive clones, in a very cheap material/: For the, fcffcct was always the same, ?whet...

RAPID TRAVELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

RAPID TRAVELLING. In answer to a correspondent, 'What is the greatest speed at which any human being has ever travelled?' an editor replies: — We should say ISO miles an hour, a rate of rapid travelling which, perhaps, only one man living has ever reached. In Switzerland there is a quarry high up in the mountains connected with the valley far below by an aerial cable, down which tbe stone blocks are sent. One day it occurred to a daring Univer sity professor that if blocks of stone could travel so swiftly and safely down this inclined wire he could do the same, and the experience would be both novel and thrilling. Equipped with a stout leather saddle and gloves he started from the dizzy mountain top, and, -gathering speed every yard, he was soon swooping through the air like an eagle, only. at a speed which no eagle has ever attained, the latter part of his journey being covered at the rate of three miles a minute. He has repeated the feat' many a time since — once head downwards — ...

A FLOGGING THAT MADE A MILLIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

A FLOGGING THAT MADE A MILLIONAIRE. It is not a method of fortune-making that is to be commended, or one that will ever be very popular; but, never theless, it is a fact that great riches have accrued to some people as the di rect result of their having been sent to gaol— riches which would not have come their way if they had never had a sentence passed on them. ?mere is toe case of the British Con sul at San Jose, In Guatemala, several years ago, Mr. Magee by name who died worth between £13,000,000 and £14,000,000, but who might not have been possessed of that number of pence except for the fact of the Guate malan Government making: a stupid mistake and putting him in prison. He protected certain refugees from the fury of a mob bent on revolution, and for doing so the Governor of the town put him in prison. Declining to recog nise the authority of his gaolers, and not conforming to the prison regula tions, he was flogged. When the Brit ish Government got wind of this ex traordinary...

Amusing Scene in Church. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

AmuBinq Scene in Church. The 'Orkney Herald ' gives au amu sing account of an Incident which oc curred in the parish church of Blrsay «ome years ago. During tbe singing of the first Psalm a goose entered the church and ouietlv 'waddled' un the passage towards the pulpit, just as the preceutor had got out of tune, and al most came to a standstill — a not very unusual occurrence at that time. Tho minister, observing the goose, ' leaned over the pulpit, and addressing tbe church officer, said: 'R ? , put out I he. goose.' That functionary, not ob serving the presence of the feathered parishioner, und supposing that the minister's direction had reference to the precentor, marched up to that in- , dividual, and to tbo no small amuse ment of the meagre congregation, col lured him, saying at the same time: 'Come out o' that, fellow!' .... A Scottish barber, Belling a special hair-restorer, has received a testimon ial from a man of high position. The following is a copy:— 'I have much pleas...

POLITENESS IN SWEDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

POLITENESS IN SWEDEN. When a train leaves a plattorm or a steam-boat pier, all the lookers-on lift their hats to the departing passengers and bow to them, a compliment return ed by the travellers. If you address the iwtnnrct. nprMn in fill* Kt-rpi'ts VOU Uktlst lift your bat. A gentleman passing « lady on the stairs of a hotel must do tlio same.

QUEER WAYS OF COUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

QUEER WAYS OF COUNTING. A few days since a little boy wa* studying about Guiana. I asked liim if he hod ever beard how tbe Indium of Guiana count. No; that had not been told in' his geography. Perhaps other girls and boys would bo as in terested to. hear about this system of enumeration us my young friend. ' Tbe Indians in Guiana, Bays a traveller, ' count by the hand and its four fingers. Thus, when they reach five, instead of saying 60 they call it a ' hand.' Six is, therefore, a ' hand and first finger.' Ten is 'two hands,' but twenty, instead of being ' four hands ' is a ' man.' Forty is ' two men.' and thus they go on by twenties. Forty-sU is expressed as ' two men, hand, and fust finger.' '

APHORISMS. It is a powerful magnetic current that connects the two forms of human thought and feeling, as expressed in poetry and music. — Liszt. Strict truth in declamation is the first and foremost requisite of vocal music. — Weber. A cultivated musician may study Raphael's Madonnas with as much profit as a painter may study Moaart's symphonies. — Mendelssohn. A musician who wishes to think cor rectly when composing should bv.ve melody and harmony simultaneously in his mind.— P. E. Bach, A true musician is imbued witb a spirit ot poetry.— Beethoven. It is essential that you should train your mind more than your fingers. — Hauptmann. The uniou of speech and music is the noblest bond that has ever been consummated. — Hiller.

Hardships of Early Musicians. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

Hardships of Eirly Musicians. There arc still, unfortunately, many who gauge social position entirely by wcalth. Judged by this. sordid stan dard, the musician of former times generally ranked very low indeed. One has but to think of Palestrina's re ceiving about £2 14s. a month at tbe time that he wrote his first masses, of Bach's widow going to the Leipzig poorhouse, of Haydn's receiving Is. 3d. per lesson for teaching Beethoven, of Schubert's obtaining about Is. 8d. apiece for his latest songs, to be con vinced that music is not an easy road towards bond-holding.

Music. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

Music. We drove a-field, and both together heard What time the grey-fly winds her sul try horn, Battening our flocks with thu fresh dew of night, Oft till thv star that rose at evening: bright Toward heaven's descent had sloped his westering wheel, Meanwhile the rural ditties ?were not mute; Tempered to the oaten flute. Rough Satyrs danced, and Fauns with cloven heel From the glad sound would not he absent long. 'One or two artists,' says an Ameri can paper, 'cannot.' create a musical atmosphere In a place which at large is apathetic. The late Antondn Dvor ak could not make., any appreciable effect upon New York in this respect. Joseffy cannot give, New York, nor can Sauret give. Chicago, a musical atmos phere. It is the spirit which perme ates the whole nation that creates the musical atmosphere.' Says Lancelot: 'Understanding, emotion, and sincerity are the three cardinal virtues of music, and the greatest of these is sincerity.' A group of pirates has now, been Indicted at Bow-st...

WORK AND HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

WORK AND HEALTH. Work, pure and simple, however hard and however constant, is rarely the cause of impairment of health, if only common hygienic precautions be observed. It is the hurried and Irregu lar meals, and still more irregular 'uick-me-ups.' which do mischief. Monotony of work is, however, in tbe long ruu. us detrimental to intel lectual vigor as is a monotonous diet to tbe digestive functions; but relief here is easily obtained by forcible di version of energy during some part of the twenty-four hours into another channel. The statesman, exhausted by the re sponsibilities and cares of office, may seek recreation in the felling of tim ber, while the wood-cutter, if he be wise, will take his over a book or a paper by the fireside. The complete change of occupation and mental activity on Sundays must be of immense utility to the jaded bank-clerk or busy tradesman, and, if for no other reason, is highly to be commended. ?

THINGS IN THEIR PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

THINGS IN THEIR PLACES. The old saying, 'Have i\ place for everything and put everything In its place,' is one of the best maxims in our language, but with the majority of us — yes, I include myself — it is one of the hardest to practise systemati cally. Many of us have the wellde fined 'place' for everything, but we do not always restore a thing to its place as soon as it has been done with, if i he gloves and ribbons are placed where they should be immediately they are taken off, they will he ready the moment they are wanted again. If they are not bo placed, some minutes will be spent in hunting for them. So it is all through the house. In cook ing, the more quickly the utensils are returned to their hooks or shelves the sooner the general tidiness prevails. The thing is to cultivate a habit In an these matters. Insist that your children shall fold up their clothes and put them away before leaving, their rooms: that the school-books shall al ways be put in the same place each day,...

VILLAGE CHOIR TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

VILLAGE CHOIR TRAINING^ The-Ecv. T. H. Spinney, FJLC.O., was lately, asked by a brother clergy man how to make the best of village musical material — twelve boys with an accent who sing through their noses, and four men, the. vicarage gardener, and three others. He replies in an article in 'The Treasury.' Here are some of his suggestions: — Show tact and punctuality. Always have something interesting in rehear sal, for the less a choir has to do, the worse It is generally done. Keep your temper. Have a system for the boys of small payments for regular and punctual at tendance. Place, these to the boy's credit. Give him a card with tbe sums marked on it. If he leaves of his own accord, or is dismissed for adequate cause, he forfeits the payments. If he continues, he receives the lump sum when his voice breaks. This keeps the parents interested. Make the elder boys prefects to keep the younger boys In order. Use a piano at practice, rather than an organ. Solos may be sung by three or ...

THE FIRST NEWSPAPER TELEGRAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 24 February 1906

THE FIRST NEWSPAPER TELE GRAM. The newspaper Which received the first telegraphic report was the 'Morn- ing Chronicle,' 8th May, 184E. Dur ing the railway mania of 1846 a meet ing of considerable importance was convened at Portsmouth to take Into consideration the respective merits of the proposed lines from London. A great desire existed to know the re sult of the meeting, and as it was not to take place at Portsmouth until after the last London train, recourse was had to the telegraph. A full report of the meeting, headed 'Portsmouth Lines, Communicated by Electric Telegraph,' appeared In a London paper next morning. The edi tor called attention to the fact in the leading columns as follows: 'In our article on railways will be found a report of a meeting held - yesterday evening at Portsmouth which was transmitted by electric telegraph. This is the first example of the electric telegraph being used for such a pur pose, and it indicates the Important and numerous services which tha...
