Theosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
Theosophy. We have been for some time in search of a defi- | nition of Theosophy which really defined it I Following, from the little treatise Do you know U ? E is a statement of the theosophic doctrine at once ( fuller and more concise than any we have previously I come across : — I Theosophy is a system of theoretical and practical j metaphysics, seasoned with spiritualism and based, j in its etsential principles, upon the most ancient I Indian and Grecian philosophies, notably that of I pythagoras who taught the soul possessed a distinct j existence and passed from one body to another. The Theosophical creed, s*ys its most able expo nent — Mrs. Besant— -' consists of three affirmations. First, the universe is fundamentally spiritual and matter is only an expression of Bpirit. Second, law reigns everywhere, in morals as much as in physical nature. That is, every act and eveiy thought pro duces its inevitable result, against which no prayer and no vicarious atonement is of the leaa...

A Clever Dog. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
A Clever Dog. A correspondent of an exchange says v — Watch I was a very sagacious dog. I taught him ta I sneeze after two or three lessons, but one bitter [ cold night he refused to. I punished him by tell- j ing him to sleep on the floor instead of the lounge, I his usual resting place. About midnight I was I awakened by hearing something moving across tho j floor. Glancing out of one eye I discovered Mr Watch with his no3S under the round of a chair, pnshiBC it across the floor: everv minute he wnnid glance at the bed and listen; thinking me fast asleep ha got the chair under my overcoat, got into the chair, shooK the coat off a hook, sat on part of ' I it, pulled the rest over him^ and lay down to pleasant dreams. Once when coming home from Bratfsle borough late at night, I thought I would see what he would do in an emergency. I accordingly stopped the horses and kept perfectly still for half a minute. Watch, who was under the pole between the horses, came out to the side of the...

Erosion of the Mississippi River Banks. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 February 1894
Erosion of the Mississippi Biver Banks. In an interesting paper recently read before tbe American Society of Civil Eoginears, Mr. J. A. Ockerson, M. Am. Soc. C. E., compares the recent accurate surreys of the Mississippi River, made since 1879, with an early reconnaisance, made in 1770, and with each other. He finds that tbe lateral motion of the river is very much less than is generally assumed, nearly every important bend now existing Deing represented in practically an identical position in the map of 1770, the changes in the river between that date and she more recent surreys being confined to a few cuts off which occurred at known dates between the surveys. Apart from these the river flows round the same bends and between the same islands now as in 1770, its excursions into one side or other of its mean position being in general limited within a rety narrow balk. Steps were taken in tbe 1879 survey, and since, to erect stone monuments at frequent intervals, forming permanent ba...
