The Fear of Thunder. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The Fear of Thunder. Electric stormis are far less daufierous than the majority of people imagine. That a severe lightning storm is terrify ing admits of uo question, aud will .sometimes bring uneasiness to the heart of the strongest man. But the real danger is slight. The chance of light ning striking a house, for example, is not one iu a million. Particularly is this trim in ,»itliis. 'strnni? .*l£ most of Ilieiu are with electric wires. The greater danger froiu electric storms is iu the country, aud even there the danger may' he lessened if the simplest and most ctfiuiiion--ieuse of precautions are qx.H' cised. The surest electric conductor is a draught, aud if, when a thundeiistorm approaches, it is seen that all windows and doors liable to occasion a draught are kept closed, the danger is at .once reduced to a minimum. If a woman is .'caught' out- iu a ' thunderstorm^ the. safest shelter is a house ; the fiiost dangerous a tree, particularly an. oak tree. It is a peculiar, but ...

The International Out-Look. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The InternatEsnal Out Look. Speaking at Birmingham on Friday night, 13th instant, Mr. Cliatuberlftin, Secretary of State for the Colon ies, said that ' Great Britsin, iu following a policy of strict isolation, is liable to b6 confronted at any moment by a combination of the Great Powers. This peril has already drawn all parts of the Etunire closer together, and is infusing a spirit of Imperial patriotism aiid a spnse of common interests with regard to trade a/sd defence. With war near our doors this is more strongly felt. Our next duty is to maintain the bonds of permanent amity with our kinsmen across the Atlantic, whoso ijtereBte are identical with our own, and more definite arrangements in this direction will lie better for both nations aB well as for tbe world in general. War,' Mr. Cliatnberlaiu continued, ' will be cheaply purchased if it results in the Stare and Stripes and the Union Jack waving together over an Anglo-Saxon alliance.

PUMPING THE PARSON. : Inquisittveness ia an important item In the make-up pf the' old-fashioned Scot. It ia veiled by a careleBBiiess which he intends shall hide it, but which in truth .gives it power and persistence. To get the secret of a neighbour's intentions oat of him without Beeming to do it is an art brought to its rarest perfection by every Scot of the teal old type. Evasions are fruitless ; unwillingness is unnoted — steadily, though with unseeming in difference, he keeps to the trail like a bloodhound. The Rev. Mr. Duncan took his seat in the train at a station north of Inverness. Thoughtlessly he left 'the carriage door open. He paid the penalty in the ap proach of an old Scot. of the undoubted type, who fastened himself to the minister without hesitation or compunc tion. It was' clear that the fate of the 'parson -was settled, and that in a few ' minutes ho would be aB dry as a tin whistle'., i ' -?'?.'? 1 A nice mornin', Maister Duncan' — illustrated with a seductive s...

RULE BRITANNIA. The band of Maoris who were brought to England to take part in the Jubilee celebrations left New Zealand with the belief that the Queen rules the whole world. Certain fellow-voyagers sought to amuse themselves at their expense. When they arrived at the Straits of Magellan it was explained 16 the Maoris ' that they could see land which the Queen did not own. They were surprised, and seemed to doubt the statement ; but were assured oi its accuracy. They took a glance at the country, noled the glaciers and the precipices surrounding the Straits, and then their curt and contemptuous oomment was ? ' Of course, not good enough !' And the fellow-voyagers referred to subsided. They had got very little change out of the Maoris so far. ' Later the ship arrived at Monte Video, and here their faith in the complete sovereignty of- the Queeu over the dominions of the world was again tested. The answer previously given -would not do in this case, for the land the Queen did hot own ...
