Overawed. A celebrated actor was spending his Christmas holidays in the Sunderlaud . diatriot. Being fond of fishing, he de oided to have a day's angling in that well-known stream, the Wear. He had only just commenced operations when he waa accosted by the keeper, who asked him, 'by what right he dared to fish in that place.' The former, assuming a most tragic attitude, and with a tone full or dignity, repliert : , ' By what right do you say ? ' ' By that great right the vast and towering mind Has o'er the instinct of the vulgar kind.'' The keeper, quite astonished by the imposing tone of this reply, withdrew, saying : ' Beg your pardon, sir ; I didn't know that.' 1' NEGLECTED.

It did not seem exactly the thing for them to sit down all alone to a Christmas dinner, yet they could hardly expect any one in the city of Melbourne, or the whole colony of Victoria for that matter, to ask them to dine on that particular day. The idea of dining with no one and having no one dine with them some what oppressed the pair as Christmas time approached. The day before Mr. Sloddard' an- nounced that he proposed to go out into the highways and hedges and drum up a guest, and with this idea in view he went down to the Palace Hotel, and after scanning the register for a familiar name, walked into the bar-room and sauntered about the court in the vain quest of some one to share...

THE SPINSTER'S CHRISTMAS. MISS PIIIME wtts the village spinster. There were, of course, aevoral other maiden ladies of certain and uncertain ago in Evamlale, but, in the samo way that many wives belong to their husbands, Miss Prime belonged to the residents of the little town. She was theirs in sickness and in health ; to . the poor and to the rich, to the good and to the bad, she gave herself; and when death appeared in any of the little homes, Miss '. ' Prime was always summoned. All of which proves that sne was beloved in iivandale. She was a comely little woman, and looked not much older than she had looked fifteen years before, when her spinsterhood hadcom1 menced. That was when Elliott Seiidder had gone away from Evandale. Every one knew that Angy Prime had sent him, that her-heart had gone with Tiim, that she would thenceforth listen to no words of love, that the love story of her life had been told. Many and various were the ways in which her neighbours tried to lighten the ...

WHATTHEY DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 24 December 1898
WHAT/THEY DRINK. Pkople living down along the lino towards Coiiamundra way, who secure their water - supply from the water train running from Gundagai, evi dently think that they get the best of the Murrumbidgee fluid. But how mistaken they are. The railway sup ply 13 not taken from the 5 'J3;dgee, but from Morlej'a Creek, a stream that is often stagnant in summer time, and, of course, contains anything but good wat9r. The last dry season when we supplied Cootamundra and other towns, the water was drawn from Morley's Creek, and the case is btill the same. Gundngaites themselves, refuse to use the water from this creek when thfy can get a supply of far better quality from tho river.

I presume that you wi-l select the best samples (say six or thereabouts). No advantage would be gained by testing every sample competing, as anyone accustomed to wheat would eliminate all but a few, and if a large number were sent, we could not possibly ex amine them.
