Leaves from a Lawyer's Notebook. [No. 1.] MR. TEMPEST'S WILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
Loaves from a Lawyer's Notebook. [No. 1.] ? ? ? MR. TEMPEST'S WILL. Few people associate the word 'law' with romance; and yot wo lawyers see more of romance in its widest, fullest sense than any other class docs, be it what it may. Those who don't under stand this fact dub us 'dry-as-dust,' 'six-and-eightpence,' and other equally unattractive nicknames. And I must confess that the ordinary routine of our lives is very dull, very prosy, very sordid, and uninteresting. We pore over musty old deeds, we delight in long, drawn-out phrases, wbich, to the fair sex anyhow, are almost unintelli gible; we draw up long, terrifying bills of costs, and at a first glance it is easy (o understand how we have come by our nicknames. But go deeper into the subject Pierce through the outside shell of hard facts,, and you may find the kernel of romance inside almost every nut that is brought for us to crack. Murders seem ghastly and repulsive enough at first sight, but what curi ous secrets lie at the ...

WHY I DISLIKE UMBRELLAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
WHY I DISLIKE UMBRELLAS. By A Retired Burglar. 'To this day,' said the retired bur 'tlar, as he watched a woman close bud place a dripping umbrella in a stand, 'to this day I never see an um brella without thinking of an experi ence 1 had with a lot of them once in Ihe kitchen of a country farmhouse. '1 had had a complete view of the whole interior of the kitchen, as I walked past tbe house by day, and I hail taken, as one might say, in a single glance, an instantaneous photo graph. I knew there was no table standing in the middle of the room, as you are likely to find in some kitchens, and 1 knew the location of every chair, where the stove stood, ami where the door was that opened into the other part of the house. 'But that night, when I set out to walk simply across tbe middle of it, I came to grief. 'The back door I opened easy enough, and, in fact, it seemed as if everything was going to be easy, but at the second step lorward across that kitchen I kicked against something that...
FOR WOMEN ONLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
FOR WOMEN ONLY. Perhaps the queerest city in the world is lhat of Nang Harm, the home of tbe royal family of Slam. This city's peculiarity lies in the fact that it is composed of women and children alone. It is in the centre of Bangkok, has high walls around it, and in its population of several thou sands there is not a single man, though tne King occasionally pays a visit. The name Nang Harm means 'veil- ed women.' There are shops, mar kets, temples, theatres, streets, and avenues, parks, lakes, trees, and flower gardens; a hall of justice, judges and executioner, police, generals, and sol diers; all the positions, official and otherwise, being filled by women. The only man in all Siam who can enter this city is the King. It is the home of his family and of the family or ihe King before him. The ruler of Siam may have as many wives as he pleases. Each wife has her own chil dren and slaves — therefore a small city is needed lo provide accommoda tion for them all.
WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
WIT AND HUMOUR. Young Doctor: 'I find it hard lo draw the line between a common cold and influenza.' Old Doctor: 'It ie hard, my boy; but social distinctions have to b« made; there's no help for it' The Oldest Inhabitant: 'I met the old squire this morning, and he tell me that Master Philip up in London 'ave been called to the Bar. ' Called to the bar,' I says, 'from what I remember of Master Philip he didn't want mucb calling.'' Old Crusty (to beggar) : ' Look here, ' my fine fellow, an able-bodied man like you should work, not beg- You ought to be given in charge.' Beggar (bitterly): 'I'm safe agin you, anyhow, if ther's any givin' in it: you ain t no bloomin' giver.' She had risen several times to let a gentleman pass out between the acts. 1 1 am very sorry to disturb you, ma dam,' lie remarked, apologetically, as he went out for the fourth time. 'Oh, don't mention it,' she replied, pleasantly. ' I am most hainy to ob lige you. My husband keeps the re freshment bar.' A man return...
A Trifling Altercation. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
A Trifling Altercation. 'Where did you get lhat dreadful black eye, Mrs. Hawkins?' said a lady 'slunjnier,' as she seated herself on the extreme edge of the least dirty chair in the Hawkins' room. 'It were the result of a trlflln' hal tercatlon with my 'usband, ma'am,' replied Mrs. HawldnB. 'Dear, dear, dear!' cried tbe visi tor, holding up her hands in horror. 'How dreadful! What a wicked man your husband must be!' 'Not at all, ma'am,' retorted the other, with dignity. ' 'Awldns Is 'asty, but 'e's a puffed gentleman at 'eart. I can hassurc you that after 'c'd give me this black eye 'e sat 'oldln' a piece of raw beefsteak to It for hupwards of a hour, a-tryln' to deduce the swellin'. A little battenlion like that goes a long w'y toward makin' married life 'appy, ma'am, as. I deBsay you've found it yourself!'
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Here is a simple and economical re cipe for an omelet. Beat the white of an egg on a plate to a stiff froth. Put the yellow into a basin and beat it, add two tablcspooufuls of milk, a pinch ol pepper and salt, half a teaspoon of pars ley, and » pinch of green oniou, and salf an ounce of butter. Always use a white lined saucepan. Warm the pan, and put in another half ounce of butter before putting iu the mixture. Have a nice clear fire. Stir the mixture until it is set, then hold it in front of the fire until it is nice fawn colour. A mixture of salt and lemon juice re moves iron rust. If a teaspoonf ul of chopped parsley be added to sage and onion stuffing for ducks or geese it will be found to be perfectly digestible. Eggs switch much more quickly in a draught. A teaspoonful of soda added to a quart of hot soapsuds will effectually cleanse the dirtiest lamp. Dry quickly after washing. Lamps to be quite safe must be clean, dry, and filled to within an inch of the to...

THE TREE OF LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
THE THEE OF LUCK The inhabitants of Staleu Island re late an odd story about a tree which has grown up on a dock extending into the water from a cliff just above the quarantine station. The dock is constructed of piling and logs, and ex. tends from the shore a distance of about 50 feet, of which 25 feet are made up of earth deposits between the piles. In tlie centre of this earth rises an enormous willow tree, around which a fence has been built. Outeide of the fence, heavy beaches are placed, on which the fishermen and others who use the dock can take their comfort. II is related that when the dock was Qrst started in a small way, nearly 25 years ago, a small sprout came float ing down the water and was drifted so that it look root in the earth, where it has now become a (treat tree. The fishermen of that day discovered it tak ing root, straightened il up, protected it with environments, and have ever since defended it, so that they will not fiermit a person even to cut a twig rom ...
SORRY HE SPOKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
80BBT HE SPOKE. A tall, official-looking man, with a pocket-book in his band, called upon Tones, and in an authoritative manner «id ' I have reason to believe, Mr. Jones, chat you are the possessor of — let me -ce — urn— «h, oh, yes— a large black re triever dog with a small white patch on its chcstP' Visions of unpaid dog-taxes and heavy fines burst upon poor Jones, and he ner vously replied— 'Oh, nol nothing of the kind. He is a poor stray brute, of no value, who followed me home, bnt he doesn't belong to me. Indeed, I've instructed my maid several times to take him round to the police station.' 'Ob, indeed,' said the stranger; 'that's all right then, and I needn't havo troubled you. Only my friend, Mr. Robinson, accidentally shot the dog this morning, and I came round to try ind compromise the matter by offering rou £5 ; but, of course, if he is not your dog— why, good morning.'
A BACHELOR ON MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
A BACHELOR ON MARRIAGE. Old bachelors are sometimes enter taining. One of the genus was recent ly discoursing upon marriage. His re marks ran on these lines: — 'Young man, before you think of matrimony take counsel with yourself. Look in the glass and ask yourself the question, 'Am 1 such a specimen of manly grace and beauty that it would be a crime against humanity if I did not leave one or more reduplications of myself behind me for the delight of future generations?' Examine your in tellect and ask if It Is of such profun dity that you may reasonably hope that your children will be the intellec tual luminaries of their time. Look into your bank account — if you have one — and consider whether you are able to support a wife on a scale of comfort and .luxury somewhat higher than she has been accustomed to at home, and if she comcB of a poor stock, bear in mind lhat she will de mand, as things go now, more luxur ies than if she had been born in the purple. ?
MISTAKES OF MATCH-MAKING MAMMAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
MISTAKES 'OF MATCH-MAKING MAMMAS. ? ; By a Victim. It has often struck me as a remark able thing that among the many rea sons .given by ingenious scribes 'why the men don't marry' as they ought to do, the chief cause of their matri monial backwardness is rarely, if ever, mentioned— sad that is the well-meant but often tactless Interference of the matchmaker, especially the match making mamma. Now, however much one may de plore this estimable lady's bungling, one cannot blame her. Almost every woman is, by nature, a born match maker; she can no more resist tbe temptation to slay the jackal to Cupid than she can turn her back on a mir ror, a 'duck' of a hat or a seductive gown; she is, in nine cases out of ten, 'built that way,' and simply can not help herself. And when such a woman finds herself the mother of daughters whom it is an imperative duty to settle comfortably In life— which means providing each with a suitable husband and breadwinner — who can blame her for applying all he...

SMART YOUNG MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
8MART YOUNG MAN. A man in an obscure town, whose literary efforts had failed to find favor, sent this letter to an editor: — 'Dear Sir, — This Is a small place where I live, and whenever a story of mine comes back to me unaccepted the whole village Knows it. Now, I know you don't want the enclosed manuscript, but I am sending It along just the same, together with a post card, which I beg you to re-poBt to me. The postmistress will read it of course, and I need not tell you that within three hours the news of what is on it will be all over the town. I shall know when it comes that my manuscript is rejected, and you need never return it to me. But please post the card to me, and win my everlast ing gratitude.' ~ The postcard had been carefully typewritten and self-addressed, it bore these words: — - 'Dear Sir, — Your manuscript re ceived and accepted. Will write you fully regarding it as soon as possible. Is £100 a satisfactory price? — Yours truly. Publishing Company.' — - ~ The best...

Sporting Notes. The V.R.C. Autumn Meeting commences at Fleiniugton to-Say. The chief centre of attraction is tho Newmarket Handicap, the most important sprint rnco iu Australia. All the crack sprinters of the Common wealth are engaged, and the race .should prove very exciting. The winner will pro bably couie from Lachlan, Duke of Melton, Medallist or Step Out. Of the top weights Pendant aud Gladsome must both be dangerous. Tho 'Chronicle' will rely on Lachlan or Duke of Melton to furnish the winner. The Australian Cup is run on Tuesday. If tbe betting market is any indication, the race appears to bo a foregone conclusion. Tartan ia a very firm favorite, and if Mr Mscken's horse is at his top, he will take a deal of beating. Scot Free may be relied on to give a good account of himself, and tho battle between tho two should be worth goiug a long way to see. This scribe ex pects to see Tartan catch the judge's eve on Tuesday, with Scot Free second aid Ossian third. Lady Wallace will wi...

Horse Sales. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906
Horse Sales, Mr- Gun Plunkett aud Mr. H. Faech (Bartsch and Paech) held a horse sale at Keighran's yards on Saturday last. They sold alteruate lv and separately, although they both had the use of the yards. Some 120 head of horses were yarded, the largest number ever got together at any previous sale here. Prices ranged from £12 to £37 10s. There was a fair demand for young draughts. Buyers were not plenti ful, and only about one quarter of the number quoted changed hands. It is intended by those auctioneers to make a monthly general stock sale of it.
