I'Yinoh Dukedom eit Cbatelherault, it must be regarded .is in every way fortunate! that the late pier and his brother, Kord Carlo, should each have died without leaving male issue. 1'or by tins menus the honours and dignities of this most illustrious of all bouses of tho British nobility have passed to another anel re.inoti! branch of Iho I'ainily.the blond of which is free From I hat terrible strain of insanity j which was infused therein by the marriage oT | the tenth duke, the grandfather of tho lates peer, to the daughter of William Beckford of V'lthek fame.

Ulmarra Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 27 May 1898
Ulmarra Letter. There is very little stirring here,both nows and business are quite. Since Messrs. McFarlane, Kethel and Kelly lectured here, very little has been heard about the Federal question, The League (if there is any) is not in evidence, and the matter appears to db a SBven aay s wonaor, and to ' have died — as most things do here — a natural death. Either all interest has lapsed, or the people are ' full' of the vexed question, or just possibly, they are deeply de bating ?within themselves the pros and cons. At the court on Wodnesday, before Messrs. E. Cameron and G. Bailey, J's.P., Mr. James Retallick obtainod a verdict for £3 3s 8d (includ ing coBts) againBt one Wm. Davis:a half-caste. — Wm.

POPPIES 2,000 YEARS OLD [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 27 May 1898
POPPIES 2,000 YEARS OLD The extraordinary resuscitating power of light received a very curious illustration a few years ago in the silver mints at Limrijin. The mines had 'ueeu abandoned more Mum 2,000 years ago as unworkable', and consisted for the most part of ' slug ' produced by the work ings of the miners. An enterprising Briton discovered that the mines contained plenty of silver, which could easily hi; removed by the superior modem appli ances. 1-Iu discovered, however, something far more valuable than the silver, namely, some poppies of & species which had disappeared for twenty j centuries, the seeds of which had lain dormant '. beneath the slag for 2,000 years. When the slag was removed to the furnace, tbe next visit to the mine found the entire space covered with a most gorgeous show of poppits. ' After their twenty centuries' rest they had bloomed us vigorously as ever, without the aid of a single drop of water or any restorative other than the royo of tlicsui). ...
FOUND ON DEAD PAUPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 27 May 1898
FOUND ON DEAD PAUPERS. Nothing is useless nowadays — not even a. defunct pauper. Often they are owners of rings or tiny trinkets, uot pawnablo, but still containing as mjch auriferous value us not a few modern gold mines. These have to be collected and also converted into cash by means of the melting-pot. In the Holhorn Union the nu-ltiug process takes place once a year, and has ju»t been accomplished for the present season. The jewellery dealt with is what is found on paupers ?who die friendless and unclaimed iu its various istablisbme'its. Kings, chains, brooches, aud trinkets have been melted down, and produced a bar of ijolel worth about £40. A good portion of it was got from the plates of artincial teeth. On oue set of artificial teeth there was at least £4 worth of gold. The proee-eds are paid into this common ejechtquer of tbe union.

A CURIOUS STONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 27 May 1898
A CURIOUS STONE. One of tbe most curious .'tones iu the world is found in Finland, iruc.ro it occurs in many places. It is a natural baromett r, and actually foretells probable changes in the weather. It is called semakuir, and turns black shortly before approaching rain, while iu fine weather it is mottled with spots of whits For a long time this curious phenomenon was a my.iter.y, but au analysis of the stone shows it to be a fossil mixed with clay and containing a portion of rock salt and nitre. This fact being known, the explanation was easy. Tbe salt, absorbing tbe moisture, turned black when the conditions were favourable for rain, while the dryness of the atmosphere brought the salt from the in terior of the ntoue iu wbite spots on the surfaie.
Queen's Birthnight. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 27 May 1898
Queen's Birthnight. Seldom does Maolean appear so animated or present such a variety of attractions as it did on tho night of the 24th. The hotols and boarding houses wero crowded, and the streets throngod with pooplo. Tho Wesleyan tea meeting was the first function that claimed attention whon the sports wore over, and the attendance thereat was largo. About 7 o'clock tho Salvation Army became the centre of attraction near tho Argylo Hotel, and for somo time the street and footpaths wero blocked with a large crowd at thia point, seeking edification or amusement acoording to their disposition. After a time Mr. Kennody's entertainment and tho cricketer's social drew a largo proportion off the streets, but tho latter were perambulated by a goodly number up till midnight.

Mr. Kennedy's Concerty. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 27 May 1898
Mr. Kennedy's Concert. Mb. Kennedy, the Scotch vocalist, was greeted with a bumper house in the Protestant Hall on Tuesday night. As a vocalist and humorist he is really worth hearing, while his portrayment of Scottish dialect and customs makes tho enter tainment peculiarly att'-acive and interesting. His introductory sing ' O Sing to me the Auld Scots Bongs was wen received Dy the audience, as was also 'When tho Kye comes hamo.' The humorous song ' The Laird 0 Cookpon' fairly brought down tho house, which waa cnlmad down bv tho pathetic song ' The Land O' tho Leal.' 'Scots wha hue wi' Wallace bled' was encored and resulted in tho rendition of 'The march of the Cnini-nm men.' After tho interval Mr. Konnody kept the houso in roars of laughter in his explanntion and rendi tion of ' Get up and bar tho door.
