THE CHAMPION STAMP-LICKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 20 May 1898

THE CHAMPION STAMP-LICKER. Sho is a lady, aud she is an American. Her name is Ada Crawford, forewoman iu a Phila delphian publishing house, and she can lick 3,000 stamps an hour and keep that up for days at a time. It is not a sponge, or a damper, or a roller that she uses to moisten the gum ; but she does it witn a dainty iick or ocr tongue, one has felt uot the slightest ill-iffects from the pro ceeding, and has even gone so far as to assert that her appetite falls her if trade is slack and there are no stumps to lick. Miss Crawford has been at this sort of work for four years. Now, according to her own fhures, she can stamp 24,000 envelopes a day. Allowing for slack days we might say she works at this pacfi two hundred days in a year, a cal culation whic'a brings tho number of stamps up to 4,800.000. In four years 19,200,000 postage stamp will have passed gumside down over her dainty tongue, equal to more than the total number of letters sent through the Norwegian post-office in ...

SAVING THE EXPRESS. ? ' Is it true, John, that you are to drivo the express to-morrow night ? ' There was :t world of solicitude in Mary Sextoivj,« voice as she looked up into John Manning's face, her eyes showing oven more than her voice the dread which bad taken possession of her. ' It is true, Mary darling, but ha\e no fear, I can manage u all right,' and John smiled ns he endeavoured to reassure his sweetheart that there was no danger in connection with the trip ' But the Luke is nearly even full, and it was said this morning that the dam might break. In that ease there will bo plenty ol danger at Lake Pass,' pursued Mary. ' Tush, little one, that's only the talk of one who knows nothing about the dam. It's stronj: enough, and you need never fear ahou', its breaking. Good-bye, sweetheart,' he said, bi'iiding over and pressing his lips to hers. But she still clung to him, loth to let him start ; he dise-ugaaged himself, hurried to the station, inil stepped upon his iron horse, an...

Editorial Notes. Amending the Constitution. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 20 May 1898

Editorial Notes. Amending the Constitution. anotuek misrepresentation which, is boing secl uously circulated throughout tho country is as follows:— If tho peoplo of Now South Wales and Victoria wore unanimously in favor of an amondtnont of tho constitution, it could not bo amended if the handful of peoplo in South Australia-, Western Australia, and Tasmania were opposed to such amoudmont ; but those handful of pooplo, by combining together, could alter the coLstitution in whatever wuy they liked against tho will of tho representatives of tho Doooie of New South Wales and Victoria.' This is pure misrepresentation. The throo smaller colonies could not alter the constitution as they desired, and against tho will of the two larger colonies, for the simplo reason that to do so itwouM bo necessary to secure tho assent, of a majority of both Houses in favor of tho pro posed change, as well as a majority of Stales and a majority of the total votes cast in a referendum to tho peoplo of the C...

Th» Wit and Wisdom of Mr. Eeid. The Premier's dull antagonists and his duller critics who havo beon in tho habit of classing him a clown aro only envious of his subtle wit and abundant humor.
