Leichhardt, eaid: " My subject to-uigHt is • My reusous for joining the Protes taut Defence Association.'" First. Because the Roman Catholic Church is losing her hold on those countries where it has had full sway is doing its level best to establish itself in these uew lands. Little did I thiuk when penning those words a few months ago4 that a nigh dignitary of the Boman Church would, in a few weeks, give them confirmation, yet such was the case. Dr. Kelly, Co«adjutor Archbishop, said, on his arrival in Sydney (see "Herald" report) "Things are very unsettled in Italy. Matters are very bad indeed iu coanectiou with our religion in France; the Jesuits have been dis banded already, but continue their work iudi vidually.

Mother—" I don't like to see you hanging over the gate with that young man." Daughter—" Well, there's a great deal to be said on both sides." In a grocer's shop, about a quarter-past-eight in the morning, the shopmen wore gossiping, when a boy entered. " Give mo two ha'pennies for a penny, please." u Coats off, gentlemen !" cried the foreman. " Business has begun." The wicked, witty prodigal returned, and in his old manner accosted- liis father:—" Well, guv'nor, I've come back. Are you going to kill the fattod calf?" But the old gentleman was a match for him, and said:—"No, my son; I think I'll let you live." "If I stand on my head the blood all rushes to my head, doesn't it ?" No one ventured...

Musical Sydney. IMPRESSIONS OF A SATURDAY NIGHT ORGAN RECITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
Musical Sydney. IMPRESSIONS OP A SATURDAY NIGHT ORGAN RECITAL. (By Our Special). Sydney hasjof late been distinguishing her self in the musical world, and a well-known poet and writer lias christened her " the Athens of the South." There is no doubt that Aus tralia as a whole, and Sydney in particular, is rich in musicians and composers, but the great majority of them are "cornstalks" only by adoption. Very few native composers exist. At the same time it must not be inferred that the country, though young, is unfavourable to the development of musical genius. Austra lians are decidedly a musical people, and now that Federation isa realization, no doubt wo may yet live to see the establishment of a national school of music for there can be no reason to doubt the growth of a style of music as charac teristic of Australia as the Italian, French, and German schools are of their respective countries. If we are well stocked with exponents of " music's magic art," we have a public that is ...

Unprinted Literature. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
I . . ■ —— : :— Unpriiited Literature. "Wha peoi)le read ib always a -topic of greater or less interest. New novels receive a due share of attention, and while new, if exciting1, are freely discussed, commented on, and criticised. Standard works, classics, and poets stand steady as hills in the realm of literature. Books are read by all sorts and conditions of people—books that elevate and inspire, and books that demoralise and degrade. Most of us feel that existence would. be rather dull without our printed friends. But there is a cla^s of people, liappily a small one, owing to the advance of education, who cannot read. There is another class whose daily duties are so numerous and pressing that they plead that they have no time for reading. They are wrong, for all people read, even those who do not know the alphabet. They read from the great library of imprinted literature, which is to be found in streets and homes and every haunt of humanity. In our domains, parks and prisons stor...

A Dream of Reclaiming Zion. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
A Dream of Reclaiming Zion. The Zionist Congress at Basle, the fifth that has been held in successive years, gives evi dence of growth in this movement for coloniz ing the Jews in the land made forever glorious by their forefathers. It is attended by a tliousad delegates of the widely-scattered people, gathered from nearly all parts of the world. In America and England meetings have been held to express sympathy in its purposes, and the enthusiastic nature of these, gatherings betoken an interest that lias in creased from year to year since Dr. Herzel, of Vienna, started the movement. So far ns I know there has been no meeting held in Syd ney, but that is only a matter of time. How far the plan of ultimately establishing a Jew ish commonwealth in Palestine, or even colon izing the land on any large scale with Jewish settlers, may bo practicable is a question, but it is certainly an alluring dream, not only for that ancient race, but for all who can appreci ate sentiment of attachmen...
"A Moorland Parish." [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
" L Moorland Parish." BY TEEMATNE DUNSTAN. f [all nigiits jie8ekvzd ] Jolin "Wesley won some of hie noblest tri umphs in the West of England. When ho carae into Cornwall first the squires and par sons gave him a hostile reception, and suc ceeded in arousing the enmity of labourers, miners, and fishermen. One parish near our own was so determined i its opposition to the Methodists that it stoned Wesley and liie helper out of the village, and the evangelists left the place slinking off the dust of their feet as a witness against it. It is a singular fact that from that day to this that village has been notorious for its irreligion. But Wesley triumphed eventually, and Methodism lias in Cornwall one of its strong holds. Every village and hamlet lias its little chapel; sometimes two, for the minor divisions of Methodism aro also represented, and it is by no means nn> uncommon thing" to find two chapels on the high road, with scarcely a house in sight, one of which is known locally as...

She had made him a good wife, because her nature was as sweet as sunshine, and her temper exceptionally good. "She is very young," said Dr. Baronal as he lay on his death-bed; "but she has been a good and faithful wife. I'm not sorry that I nave loft all the property to her." There were two cliildren — bright-haired, blue-eyed little cherubs—and in the society of those dimpled rogues Mrs. Baronal found her happiness. "Of course she'll marry again," sourly said Miss Lois, Dr. Baronal's maiden sister. "Why shouldn't she ?'' said Mrs. Dean, the minister's wife; there's no law against it, is there?" "I know," said Miss Lois; "but if all poor Zedokiah's money is to go. to strangers, he'd a deal bettor have left a little of it to me and his own relations.
