THE CITY OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
THE CITY OF THE FUTURE. The modern industrial city has been dependent for its rapid expansion on its superior advantages with respect to coal — that is, it must have either a navigable water front, or be a natural railway receiving and distributing centre, or be the natural focus of a coal and iron region. All this will be changed in the great electrical waterfall cities of tho future, writes Mr.E.H.Mullin in ' Caaaior'a Magazine.' Tho power, as a rulo, will be produced in the mountains, while tbo cities will bo scattered far and wido over tho foothillB. There will be better air. more room, better drainage, more oiviliscd con ditions of living than is tho case with tho present ovorcronded industrial beehives, built, for the most part, on the swampy deltas or in the valleys of great rivers. Under the pressure of dear coal and with the attraction of cheap wator-powor, tho face of Europe will bo changed. As indicated by Lord Kelvin, the Highlands of Scotland will becomo industrially mo...

FROM THE TALMUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
FROM THE TALMUD. Tho Jewish Talmud has some interesting sentences about women : — ' A housewife never allows herself to be disturbed from her work; oven while con vorsing ahe ia buBily apinning.' ?? An oia expenencea woman in a nouse holdiaan ornament to it like a pearl.' ' Ho who livoa in an unmarried atate knows no joys.none of tho blessings of home, and is without support.' ' The man who stands at the death-bed of his wife feels like those who saw the temple of Jerusalem reduced tn ashes, for tho wifo is the temple in which each man finds repono and quiet, whore he rests after tho labours of thn day, and where ho can givo expression to hiB feelings, joyful and mournful.' ' Tho Almighty has givon to woman more ability to judgu correctly than a man.' ' A good wifo is Heaven's noblest gift.'

RUSSIAN MACNIFICENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
RUSSIAN MAGNIFICENCE, No Western imagination can easily con- ceive an idea of the splendour with which the Russian rulers are habitually surrounded. Chairs und tables of solid silver.ivory thrones, [Lhlnzu with hriliiiintH and flamihirpR. wnllu nf amber and floors of mother of pearl— theso tilings aouud like an Eastern fable; but the Czar has them all. At Moscow, in tho great palace within the sacred Kremlin walls, thcro nre not only crowns, orbs, and sceptres covered with diamonds, but also saddles, atirrups und Bets of harness covorod with similar gems. Thoro are hundreds of awords, daggers, und soiinitnrs, tho sheaths of which aro literally masses of peurla.rubios, and turquoises. Rare tapestries, murvcllous china from Sevres and Japan, flawless gems from Asia, priceless antique MSS. and jowollod bookcuvcrs— these aro a few of the objeotB scattered about tho Czar'a twelve palaces with Royal prodigality.
CHRISTMAS WITH THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
CHRISTMAS WITH THE QUEEN. Christmas brings with it to the Queen a variety of very diverse associations. It was &nbsp; on a Christmas morning, 1838, that her engagement to the late Prince Consort was announced. Twenty-three years later she went to Osborne, a lonely and almost heart- broken widow, after the funeral of the late Prince Consort, to spend the most joyful season of the year in the saddest manner. For years after that mblancholy date he Christraasaing at Osborne was of the most perfunctory character. ft was Princess Beatrice who gradually persuaded tho Queen that it is not good to weep for ever, and it was under her influence that Yuletide at Court gradually resumed most of the fea tures which it had worn during the lifetime of tho lamented Prince. For Bomu timo beforo tho actual date the atir of preparations is in the air. The Koyal warrantholdors obtain permission to send in samples of their Christmas novelties, and tho same license is often conceded to other trad...

THE ROSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
THE ROSE. Early in tho New Year, lovely artificial flowers will be offered us, made by a new process — out of wood pulp. And so delicate will be the appearance of the blossoms, that it will be impossible to distinguish them from the choicest hothouse products. Many (lowers havo a signification, somo historical, somo national, whilo others aro used aa emblems of sentiment. Among tbo ancients tho rose was used as a symbol of . secrecy.and asadecoration in churches:hence the phrase sub rosa (meaning under the rose) applied to an avowal, as secret as tho Con fessional. It was also an old custom to hang it up at entertainments as a token that nothing which was said there should be divulged. The rose is one of those flowers which aro Bupposcd by the people of evory land to be bo well-known an to nocd no description, for it is a singular fact that every continent, with tho solitary execution of Australia, produces wild roses. Even the frozen regions of the North, whoro tho summer lasts but...

CHRISTMASTIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
CHRISTMASTIDE. Once again the flight of time has borne us on to the very brink of an- other Christmas. On Monday next all Christendom, throughout the length and breadth of the civilised universe, will join in one great and glorious celebration of the advent to this mundane sphere of the Son of Man. Notwithstanding the fact that in a few day's time nineteen hundred years will have elapsed since the Star of Bethlehem indicated to the Shep- herds where the Saviour of Mankind was to be found, Christianity under the new dispensation is stronger even to-day than it has ever been. Viewed either from the standpoints of the devout, the indifferent, or the doubters, the subject loses none of its force and faoination. At this particular period o£ the year nearly every one involun tarily firughos aside tno sorrows of the past, and is intent only I!} joining in the contagious merriment that every ivtere surrounds, ' Peace on enrth and goodwill toward men ' is a motto that each Christmas, right t...
WELCOME CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
WELCOME CHANGES. Perhaps the most pleasing war news which our columns contain this week, will be the change in the generalship of the British troops in the Transvaal. Mr. Craig, the talented Sydney writer on the war struck the key-note of British feeling with regard t0 recent reverses when he described our men in the Transvaal as ' Lions led by '°q°3- In effect this concise phrase is only too painfully true. In tho first place Gatacro blundered ; Lord Methuon sacrificed hundreds of his bravest mou, who obeyed their orders although it nioant certain doath ; and last comes to hand what hns been softly termed a reverse to General Bullor. In the first two cases tho dofeats could not bo called war, but could bo moro accur ately described as murder. Surely thoro must bo some routes to Kimbor loy, if reliof is so badly needed, bosides over tho kopjes where 11,000 Boors wero ontronchod in a position almost as impregnable for tho aggressors as Gibraltor itself.

REALISM IN EXCELSIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
REALISM IN EXCELSIS. In the 'Revue des Revues' there is a most interesting article on the Theatre in Japan, from the pen of Dr. Bauzemont : — ' The Japanese are psychologists who demand at the theatre a most profound analysis of human passions. Not two years ago tho celebrated tragedian Olowaya, in order to present un impersonation of a merchant ruined by financial catastrophes and broken down by domestic troubles, submitted himBclf to a regime which he conceived would properly identify himself with his part. He appeared in public in tho shabbiest of costumes, lio deprived himself of food and even abstained from his daily bath — an unheard of sacrifice for a Japaneso. Little by littlD ho sank into a state of melancholy, hia fcaturea became haggard, and his brain gave way. Ho became convinced that the ruined banker of tho piny was himself, and tho cerebral shock arising from this illusion wns so real that his friends were forced to appeal to medical assistance in ordor to save his li...

THE ELEVENTH MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
THE ELEVENTH MAN. When travelling in America we stopped at a flag station to take up a couple of men, and as they came into the smoker all saw that they were handcuffed together. It was easy enough to identify tho prisoner. He was a &nbsp; gaunt-faced, long-haired man of dejected de- meanour, and he seemed embarrassed at the sight of so many of us. ?? I reckon yo' can't run from me, now,' said tho officer as he removed tho irons. ' Sorry to hov put 'em on yo at all, Jim, bat I'm lamo and can't take chances.' ' Ib the man going to prison ? was the natural inquiry of ono of the passengers. ' A little wuss nor that, sah— he's goin' to ho convict camp, ' answered the officer. ' For what crime ?' '?

HOW A WHEN FEIGNED DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899
HOW A WREN FEIGNED DEATH. A writer in, 'Nature Notes' tells the &nbsp; following curious story: 'Hearing a sort of &nbsp; rustle in some newspapers under one of the dining-room windows and at the same time a scream of 'There is a rat in the room ; there is a rat in that paper, 'I went to investi- gate. I found in the paper a little wren. On taking up the bird it felt quite warm, and I could not see a trace of injury. It lay quite still and I thought I could feel its heart beating. Anyhow, I decided to keep it until next morning, so I laid it in an empty mouse cage, ono of the cages with glass fronts, where people keep white mice. It had been left here by one of my grandchildren whose pet had died. I took cago and occupant, a to all appearance dead bird, to my bedroom, and curly noxt day heard a fluttering noise iu tho cago; tho wren was moving about, As soon as the maid cuine in I got her to open tho window and put the cago on a tablo closo by, where I could see it, ...
