THE RED TERROR [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

THE RED TERROR This story I can only tell as it was told to me by the son of a man who took uii active part in tho French revolution, Incredible as the narrative may seem to the averuge render, the old gentleman wlio related the incident to me firmly belioved it, and a few oxpertn in electrioiby havo admitted that such thinas are oossible. When the revolution was at its height in Paris 'during 1792, a young doctor numed Gaspard met a horrible fate under very singular oircumstunces. The doctor was dovoted to science. He had mastered muny of the secrets of electricity, and there is good reason to believe that if he had lived in our generation lie would have been far in advance of/our leading electricians. Dr. Guspard loved science and hated Du mon.b, a dreadful rival in his own particular Held. One niehb Dumonb was arrested and carried before the revolutionary tribunal. Ho was tried and convicted of treason be fore midnight and ^yas sentenced to die ut an early hour the next morning. ...

TROUBLES OF A SHY MAN [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

TROUBLES OF A SHY MAN , George Meikle IComp, tho architect ot the Scott Monument at Edinburgh, was a man who raised himself from obscurity by sheer force of talent and deteimination. He had a retiring nature, and u thy and shrink ing manner towards strangers. The habit of hund-shaking created in him an embar rassment and aversion which he could scarcely control, and one of his friends gives an amusing description of the manner in which he accomplished' the, deed when ib became inevitable. , The two wete walking along one of the streets in Edinburgh in tho full flow of all animated conversation, when Kemp sud denly became aware of a friend approach ing them in the opposite direction. Instantly the curronbofhis bhoughb was urrestid, he lost bhe bhread of conversation, and then . became silent altogether. A whimsically troubled expression -crept over his face, and a nervous commotion developed itself in his manner. ' 'Extraordinary movements began, in his right hand and arm, which * he...

Daysdale. January 31. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

Aiiysrtalc. ?January 31. Things arc still looking very bad as re gards water, although we had a shower of , .25 points a few days ago, which'-. helped the. house tanks. I hear that Mr. Rankin, of Goonambil, is sending 8,000 sheep away to-day. Tho annual races went off very quietly on Thursday last, the attendance both of people and horses beiric small, and there were no spielers and only about two drunks to be seen on the course. The horseowners, trainers and jockeys seemed dissatisfied at having to pay Is. entrance fee at the gates, and at first talked of not going in, but when the bell rang up for the fir»t race they de cided on paying the entrance money. It is a great pity the races hero are not better patronised as the stakes here are as large as in a good many far larger places. A dance was held in the hall of the Mechanics' in aid of the. institution which was very well attended, but came to a sudden stop at about 2 a.m. owing to a disturbance, which I believe is to be the sub...

A KITTEN IN A FLY-WHEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

A KITTEN IN A FLY-WHEEL. Mr. Slocum, of Manchester, says that he pos sesses a kitten which has travelled about as rap idly and as far in one day as any other animal in the world. On morning, about a month ago, the kitten strayed into the faetory a short time before the machinery was started. It took up its pusition iu the big fly-wheel, where, without being noticed, it nestled down and went to sleep. Soon the machinery was put in motion, the wheel movinc so rapidly that the poor kitten could not escape, indeed, it is probable that puss was soon uucooseious from dizziness. A little computation shows the distance the cat travelled. The wheels move at the rate of 250 revolutions a minute, and at every turn pussy went 17ft. As the wheel was kept in motion 390 minutes without stopping, the kitten must hare travelled during that time a little over 300 miles. When the wheel was stopped the kitten was discovered and taken oat, more dead than ulive ; but it shortly recovered, aud, although i...

Coonong Siding. February 2. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

Coononar Siding-; ; February 2. ?Most surprising I I have to chronicle tho fact of a race meeting being held in this district on Saturday last. It is the first of the, kind held hero for many years. Mr. Winnacot, lessee of the Hamilton Hotel, was the instigator nnd was, I believe, greatly benefited by it, as the hotel was crowded ail day. Those present showed by their thirst what a warm and dusty day it was, but there were only a few too 'sick' to walk home without help. In that light it was rather a model meeting, though there was plenty of room for improvement in other things. To me the time between the races, . an hour, seemed rather long, but soma of the more fortunate ones seemed to enjoy themselves immenssly in their own par ticular way. Flirting, gossiping, and lernon nde drinking seemed the order of tlio day, to - say nothing of the great quantity of fruit consumed. Mr. Hogan's (Urana) represen tative had the best collection of fruit on the course that I have seen for some t...

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. The author of 44 The Wire and the Wave ' relates a most singular case of love at Hist sight. Mr. Errington, a telegraph superintendent, was on his way to India. Going through Brindisi towards the steamor, he met a beautiful girl coming along the street with an older lady, Struck with the beauty of this dainty Greek maiden, aud feeling that she was his M fate,' he boldly accosted the ladies, introduced himself, and there and theu made an offer of marriage. The ladies only laughed. ' You must be crazy,' said the elder lady, whe could speak English, for they were Greeks from the Ioniau Islands, although residents in the town, 'Not at all,' said Errington. 11 1 never was saner in my life.' 44 But it is ridiculous, sir,' said the mother: 'sosnddeu.' 44 Madam,' said Erring ton, 44 my ship is about to start.

THE PURCHASE OF WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

THE PURCHASE OF WIVES. There are countries in which, if a man wishes to be legally married, he has to go out and buy a wife, though the market prices of that article differ considerably, hi Uganda, you can get what vou require for two or three bullocks, or even for six good sewing needles, or perhaps a box of percussion caps ; while in ferior wives can be picked up in exchange for a coat, and if one be indifferent to health and beauty, for a pair of shoes. In the Caroline Islands wives are cheap. A fatLer will let you marry his daughter if you give him a little fruit or a|small present of lish, while, io Samoa, matrimony runs you into pigs and canoes ; among the Fijians, into whales' teeth and mus kets. In Tartiry, it is best to marry beneath you (you can do it ou a few pounds of butter), because a wan who has lordly notions of a mar riage with oue of the Upper Teu must be au owner of horses. The aborigines of Australia mauaee their i marriages upon a most equitable principle. If A ...

Finley. January 31. [Newspaper Article] — Jerilderie Herald and Urana Advertiser — 3 February 1899

Finley. January 31. The Church of England social referred to in my last took place on Friday, 27th inst., and it could hardly be described as an un qualified success. The doors opened at 7.30 and the chairman seemed conspicuous only by his absence up till 9.15, when the per formance commenced in the form of a concert ; this was followed by a dance. I refrain from quoting programme for fear of exciting envy in the hearts of your readers other than Finleyites. The Deniliquin v. Finley cricket match took place on Saturday and ended in a victory for the locals by eight runs, it being decided on first innings. The scorcs were : Finley, 115 ; Deniliquin, 107. The match was exceedingly interesting, and both teams exhibited splendid play throughout. Lciting (38) and Davison (36) wero the principal scorers on the local side, while Trayer showed out the best for Deniliquin. Mcehan (Finley) secured the best bowling average for the day — 5 wickets for 35 runs. A smoke night was given in the eve...

KILLING A HIPPOPOTAMUS. Among the feats of huutiag described by Mr. Cumming, as belonging to his five years' South iVfricau i-xpt-riencej, is one concerning a hippo potamus : — ?? Just as the sun went dew« I entered a dense reed cover, and came upon the fresh icirs of four hippopotami. They had been lying sleeping on the margin of the river, and as they beard me come crackling through the reeds had pluuged into the deep water. I at onue ascertained that they wero newly started, for the froth and bubbles were still on tho spot where they bad plunged in. Next moment I heard them blowing a little way dowu the river. 1 thek headed them, and with, considerable difficulty, owing to the cover of the rteds, I at length came light down above where they were stauding. It was a broad part of the river, with a sandy bottom, and the water came half vvay up their sides. There were four of them— three cows and an old bull. They stood in the middle of the river ; and, though alarmed, did uot appear...

'Six Times Nine.' I studied my tables over and over, And backward and forward too, But 1 couldn't remember, six times nine, And I didn't know what to do, Till my sister told me to play with my doll. And not to bother my head, 'If you'll call her ' Fifty-four ' for a while You'll learn it by heart,' ahe a»id. So I took my favourite Mary Ann (Though I thought it a dreadful Bhame To give such a perfectly lovely child ^ Such a perfectly horrid name), And I called her my dear little ' Fifty-four ' A hundred times, till I knew The answer of six times nine as well As the answer of two times two. Next day Elizabeth' Wigglesworth, Who always acta bo proud, Said 'Six times nine is fifty-two,' And I nearly laughed aloud. But I wish I hadn't, for when teaoher said, 'Now, Dorothy, tell if you can,' I thought of - my doll, and— sakeB alive I— I'answered ' Mary Ann.'
