To resuscitate a drowned Englishman, place a piece of roast beef under his nose. A French- man, a pinch of snuff. An old maid, an offer of marriage. How is it we know that our common mother Eve did not belong to the High Church party ?-Why, because, don't you see ? Adam used to say she Eve-angelical. Lady (engaging Laundress, and nervous about small-pox) : I hcpe you are very particular about infection.-Laundress : Lor, Mum ! we never uses none of it. We always washes the clothes with our 'ands ! A shrewd old lady cautioned her married daughter against worrying her husband too much, and concluded by saying : " My child, a man is like an egg. Kept in hot water a little while, he may bcil soft ; but keep him there too long and he hardens." A young lawyer, who had long paid his court to a lady without much advancing his suit, accused her one day of being " insensible ...

Bishops and their Flocks. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

Bishops and their Flocks. Bishops are in a place where they are demanded of conscience to speak the truth and the whole truth, and if we find good men, such as all our bishops are, keeping just this side of the whole truth, we are not going to charge them with wilfully shutting their eyes, when what is evident to the lay mind appears to be weightless with gentlemen wholly given over to the spread of Christianity as they understand it. No well-read man now-a-days has patience to listen to the wild jeers of unin- structed men against religion. There is a species of Eo called free thinker who runs amuck at every thing, and whilst showing up some abuses trans- parent enough to everybody, think they have not delivered their souls unless they make themselves offensive. 8uch men carry no weight except amongst the unthinking. At the same time it is not a good thing that any of sort of bishop, what- ever lus abilities or virtues, should remain ignorant of the fact that from the very nature o...

THE HON. J. L. PARSONS' FIRST QUARTERLY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884

THE HON. J. L PARSONS' FIRST    QUARTERLY REPORT. STILL proceeding with the agricultural interests, the Resident mentions the names of those who are at present engaged in the cultivation of sugar-cane, the amount of work executed by them, and the probability or otherwise of their operations coming to a successful issue. From the report before us we extract thc following pointed remarks :- . "It must be confessed that the results furnish but a sorry record after the glow- ing reports, promises, and anticipations. It is easily explained, however. The small cultivators at West Point, who have grown good cane, have not had sufficient capital to erect milling machinery; and at Delissa-   ville, where machinery has been provided, the land is too poor to grow cane. Nor is it difficult to explain why large sugar growers in other places have not embarked in the enterprise in the Northern Terri- tory:-(1.) They have waited for the results of Delissaville. (2.) They h...

AN AMERICAN ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

AN AMERICAN ROMANCE. I Twenty-five years ago George Wellington, I a young English adventurer, clandestinely married the daughter of Charles Schuyler, a New York nabob. The stern father turned thé young couple ont of doors, and they went away into poverty and Connecticut. Subsequently, an aristocratie Theodore St. Quentin married Schuyler's other daughter. Of this marriage was born a son; of the other a daughter. Young St. Quentin has been brought np in luxury; Laura Wel- lington has " lived out," and still does so, for her living. But when grandfather Schuyler died it transpired that his will left his estate to these two, provided they would marry each other. So far it reads like a novel of Mrs. Southworth or Miss Braddon. Nor does the resemblance cease when we learn that Miss Wellington declines to marry her cousin, preferring to relinquish her share of the wealth, and that he presses his suit with ardour and " personal" adver- tisements in the local paper at Bridgeport, Connecticu...

A REMARKABLE BEQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

A REMARKABLE BEQUEST. At Berlin on Joly 14, an extraordinary bequest was the subject of proceedings be- fore che Irish Master of the Bolls. It was made in the will of the late Miss Elizabeth Haughton, of Eccles-street, Dublin, who died On the 25th May last, possessed' of personal estate amounting to about £7000. An action was brought by Mr. S. Haughton her brother and executor, for the direction of the Court as to certain trusts in the will, which was dated September 2th, 1883. The testatrix provided as follows :-" I give and bequeath, after my death, the sum of £1000 sterling to the national cause for the independence of Ireland-liberty for my country to rule herself. Being a Repealer in my youth, I am unable to understand the political phase of the present day, and I prefer the interest of £1000, which I hope will be £50 per annum, to be given yearly by my executor. I appoint my brother, Samuel Haughton, my executor, and I leave the power in his hands to dispose of my bequest towa...

DON'T USE ICED DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

DON'T USE ICED DRINKS. There is no more doubt that drinking ice water arrests digestion, than there is that a refrigerator would arrest perspiration. It drives from the stomach its natural heat, suspends the flow of gastric juice, and shocks and weakens the delicate organs with which it comes in contact. An able writer on human disease says .-Habitual ice water-drinkers are usually very flabby about the region of the stomach. They complain that their food lies heavy- on that patient organ. They taste their dinner for hours after it is boiled. They cultivate the use of stimulants to aid digestion. If they are intelligent they read upon food and what the physiologist has to say about it ; how long it takes cabbage and pork, beef and potatoes, and other meats and esculents to go through the process of assimilation. They roar at the new bread, hot cakes, fried cakes, imagining these - to have been the cause of their maladies. But ice water goes down all the Bame, and finally friends are...

LEARNING TO SWIM IN FIFTEEN MINUTES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884

LEARNING TO SWIM IN FIFTEEN MINUTES. ' " This subject of swimming,'' says a well-known professor, " is most important when it is considered how many lives are lost from want of the knowledge of swim- ming ; and when so much attention is given to all sorts of athletics it is strange that so little is thought of the art of swimming. Some persons think that there is some mystery in learning to swim, but I expect confidently to do away with all the mystery and again ask-Why does every animal, from tiie horse to the mouse, swim when put into tiie water, and that a man does not ? I have never received a sensible reply to this question. I have seen men run races under the water (in Lough Erne, Ireland^, but they started with stones in their hands to keep them down. Why does a man lying on the bottom in a bath with two feet of water over him rise to the sur- face when he has filled his lungs through a tube reaching over the water! Thinking out these facts lead on to the establishing of the ...
