The United States and "Coloured" Citizens. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The United States and 'Coloured' Citizens. It is announced that the Ameri cans intend raising an army of '? Southeners ' to serve against Cuba. The word ' Soathener ' is presumably a modest way of describ ing the negro and half-cast element which predominates in the Southern States. This will probabiy mark an important step in the social history of the American people. These negroes were the innocent cause* of the civil war, wherein brother fought against brother, and father against sod, sowing the seed of hatred and bitterness in the white man's breast against the black man. So deeply has this resentment been imbrued in the sentiments of the people of the States that it absolutely drowns their sense of justice, fair play, and equal citizenship. No doubt there have been men in America born of negro parentage who have been remarkable in their time, being -by their intellectual capacity and edu cational attainments, superior to most, and equal to many of the best ; men among the white...
The Coming Coal Crisis. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The Coming Coal Crisis. Th-re sppears to be a strong disposition ou the part of the miners to hasten on the coming crisis in the coal trade. This opinion, which is general! was borne ont at ihe Ducting of the Wallsend miners on Fri day night, 13th inst., when the followiog resolu 'Od was moved for tut-misMOU to the di- net : 'That, in the opinion of this !odg- , the d strict officer should at once take s:en« to nrooiute & couterence. if D' s^ible. of colliery proprietors who are prepared to com bine and enter into an agreement with the miners, and endeavour to raise the selling price nl coal, a id th-reby cause an advance in wages.'

Pretty Walls. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
Pretty Walls. 'Pretty walls' we are , determined to ?have, and rightly ao, ijiit tiieir decora tion need not be. expensive. Indeed, wall-papers now can be had which are: really artistic for a very small sum of money, and as they are things which db not last clean for any length of time, it is well not to place too great a strain on the domestic exchequer for them, but to buy something inexpensive which may be easily replaced whenever it seems necessary. No room can be healthy with dirty walls, and certainly dust-resisting walJ-papers are those with a satin-like finish, so 'these are to be recommended for good wearing qualities. In choosing papers, remember that for low rooms dadoes and friezes should be avoided, and patterns should be chosen having perpendicular lines in them. Dark papers have 'the effect of making the rooms look smaller, while light ones give an idea of air and space which is pleasant. Be careful in- choosing a paper to see that it looks well by artifi cial light, ...

Our Position in Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
Our Position in Sleep. The influence of the direction in which the human body reclines in sleep, though often discussed, is doubtless generally regarded as a very trivial question. So eminent a medical man as Sir B. XV. Richardson has taken up the matter, however, and declares that tlie effect of the earth's rotation has not ?been properly investigated, and tnat it is prdbably of much importance, espe cially to invalids, feeble, and sleepless people. The rapid motion of the earth tends to affect the circulation. The blood is inclined towards the head or away frcm it, according as the head is placed towards the east or west, and Dr. Richardson finds he sleeps most comfortably, and awakens more readily, with the head in the westerly directian.
The Hour Before Dawn. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The Hour Before Dawn. A curious fact, never yet explained, is the temporary uneasiness of animals about an hour before daivn, 110 mat!02 at what hi.ur this occurs. Children turn and moan, elderly people awaken and turn over for another sleep, cocks crow, dogs liecome uneasy, and horses and cattle move about for a : short period, ?when stillness returns for a time. What asked, affected by some magnetic wave wli'lah precedes sunlight ah hour or so, or is the habit one of heredity, passed down through numberless generations from an original wild state when- an alertness just before daylight was neces sary for protection from enemies ?

That Masterful Yankee. Tbe writings of Mark Twain are full of in struction ns well as bumor. Possibly you have read that wonderful story of his culled '? A Yankee nt King Arthur's Court.' The hero is a ckiMed mechanic, the foreman of a great factory in America. He is accidental ly killed, ns we would say ; but. instead of getting bis body depobiud in the grave, as happen? to the most of us he roraes to life again, ami finds bimself at the Com t -if King Arthur in England in the sixth century, 1,300 years before ho was born. That was a time of deep ignorance and superstition ; people were but children then. So witli his knowledge and bis nineteenth cen'nry traiq ing he snon becomes master of everbody and everything. He controls tbe Government and runs the whole country — exactly as a college professor would be superior to all the children if he should take it into his bead to join a class at a parish school Mow let us see what this idea may mean to you or to In the autumn of 1873 Mr....

The "Better Bill" Fallacy. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The 'Better Bill' Fal lacy. (By CoKswTtJMONALisr.) One~of the lures which tlie Anti Federals hold out, to entice us away from the Union that is within our grasp, is that if we reject this Bill we can set to work to Federate under a ' Better Bill.' They say, very plausibly-, that 'the Bill of 1898 is admittedly better tliau the Bill of 16111 ; therefore tlie Bill of 1900 will be better still.' But the analogy is a false one. Tbe Bill of 1891. excellent as it wr«, was a first draft ; it was struck oft in one session, at a time when federal ideas were quite new to all but a ver; few of the Convention, and before every phase of the question had received the thorough discussion which it has since had. Besides, the Bill lacked one essential of a popular Constitution ; it had not the people's initiative behind it, nor the people's co u fid nee to support ii. A new s -art w. s inerrable, and the new start was made, under tbe Federal Enabling Acts, by the election of representatives by the p...
