POETRY. NOTTINGHAM HUNT. (AUGUST 22, 1642.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
POETRY. -?-' NOTTINGHAM HUNT. (AUGUST 22, 1642.) Oh, the dawn is all about us and the dew is . on oar faces, Dashed from off the rushing branohes as we" ride and, riding, sing : Yoiks ! The hunt is up, the hounds are out, the beaters in their places ; *T is a gallant day for hunting in the name of Charles the King !* Hi! the chase is well-nigh over, for tho . - . game has broken cover, 'Sondding out into the open, while the moors and meadows ring "With the yell of horns, the bay of hounds, the shout of lord and lover : 'Tia a gallant day for hunting in the nimo of Charles the King. . . Const the rascals as they soamper ! If there's : . . " one, there's one-and-twenty ; : There *s the gray old fox Noll Cromwell, crafty Pym, and coward Byng, Hampden, Hollis, Vane, and Essex,-Lord ! there's sport enough in plenty; . .

CANLEY VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
CANLEY VALE. Txrrc regular mooting of the Socinl Tmprovomonfc and Musical »Society was hold at tho Association Hall on Wednesday evening, 12th instant, thc Mayor presiding. Tho attendance was small, compared with other occasions, probably owing to thc exces- sive heat. Several songs woro rendered, chiefly by the ladies. Most of the sterner BOX did not care to indulge in too tn uah singing- they said it was too liot, and, and tho fact of their having boon toasting afc Liverpool during thu afternoon - firstly at a municipal willow and leather match, and secondly beneath thu bounteous slieltor of Host Cloke-it was not Lo bo wondered at that thoy would not warble anything but " For he's a jolly good follow." They were as jubilant as school-boys at defeating their municipal brethren and boasted they will " lick 'em again hands down, and with narrower bats into the bargain." The meeting appeared, to be turned into &nbsp; a free and easy affair—a friendly " corroboree" so to speak—...
LIVERPOOL MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
LIVERPOOL MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. THE regular meeting of the above was held at the Council Chamber on Tuesday evening last. Present—the Mayor (Alderman Moreshead), and Aldermen Chapman, Cole, Christiansen, C. A. Scrivener, Tillett, Smith, Marsden, and H. Scrivener. Minutes of previous meeting were read and confirmed. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PRIVILEGE. Alderman Chapman drew attention to remarks made by certain members of the Water and Sewerage Board, at a recent meeting of that body, respecting &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the council's action in appealing direct to the Board of Health relative to the alleged impure state of the local water supply, He contended the coun- cil were perfectly justified in the action they had taken in the interest of the public health. It was all very well for Mr. Ahern to sarcastically infer that the residents looked upon Liverpool as the most important place in Australia. This they were quite justified in ...
A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [BY W. T. C.] Leaving here and retracing my steps I came into Cheapside, which, like the Strand, is perhaps one of the busiest thoroughfares of the city. ll a.m. is the best time to ob- serve the pulsing of this great artery. Every person you meet seems to be in a hurry, every face you have time and space to sean is wholly pre-occupied. " Business" seems as much written upon each countenance as it is indicated over the windows and door-ways of the shops. Alluding to this impression, the great German scholar, Heine, remarks of his first view of London : " I have seen the greatest wonder the world can show to the Astonished spirit; I have seen it and am still astonished-forever there will remain, fixed indelibly on my memory, the stone forest of houses, amid which flows the rush- ing stream of faces of living mon with all their varied passions, all their terrible im- pulses of love, hatred and hunger-I mean London." It was hereabouts I fir...
ST. JOHN'S PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
ST. JOHN'S PARK. THE Public School here has at last been pulled down. Mr. Vallance, of Bankstown, is the con- tractor, and it is hoped that the re-building will be done in a more lasting manner than originally and that the work will be pushed on with all possible speed in order that the pupils may be taught nearer home. THE orchards and vineyards are looking splendid. The recent rains have swelled the grapes consider- ably and caused them to ripen earlier. Taken all round the crops are of a satisfactory character and the pastures are wearing a cheerful aspect. SNAKES have been plentiful during the past few weeks, most of them having taken a fancy to perambulating at the rear of residences, in kitchens and in pantries—evidently on " tucker" bent. Several of the reptiles, of various species, have been killed by the residents.

A MIDGET OF THE HORSE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
À MIDGET OF THE HORSE WORLD. The Tom Thumb of a horse, which must, as all other things eventually do, find its way to London, is the property of the Marquis ' Careano, a horse fanoier of Lombardy, who has a groat local reputation. He is the owner of some Shetland ponies which have for years been admired in Milan, and when he drives vhem four-in-hand, the event al- ways oreates a great deal of interest among the people. The Shetlands, aa a race, are Small, as everybody knows, but the smallest are rarely less than oiyht hands or 2ft 8in in height. The midgot Shetland, however, which is the wonder and remark of the horse world at prenent, is only two foot high. The Marquis Carcano believes in little horses, as his opinion in that they do more work in relation to their size than the larger horses, and oost considerably less. His four-in hand Btands him in sixpence a day for food. Who, therefore, would not be a keeper of horseflesh at this rate P It is almost cheaper than a oyole.
ON SENTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
ON SENTRY. A soldier tells of a strange adventure he once met with whilst on sentry duty:-It was in India. lt was just past midnight, and I was pursuing my measured march, when I suddenly perceived in that night of stillness and solitude an apparition arrayed in white, about eighty yards in front of me. I at once became determined, and resolved to settle this mysterious matter once and for ever. I challenged, but my strange visitor paid no heed. "Hardly realizing my rashness &nbsp; I brought my rifle to the 'present,' again challenged, and receiving no answer wildly fired. My white-robed stranger stood still for a moment, then reeled and fell. I ran to tho spot, and with indescribable horror beheld the form to be that of my own, Colonel. I will not dwell upon the awful details that followed. Suffice to say, as luck had it, I had missed my mark ; he fell through shock alone. It was shortly after- wards found out that he had become ad- dicted to somnambulism ; hence these quee...
SHOULD WE BELIEVE IN GHOSTS? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
SHOULD WE BELIEVE IN GHOSTS P It is difficult to determine whether the 'ought* of your query implies an ethical or a scientific obligation : and I am afraid the ono as little admits of a final answer as the other. The present writer remembers a lady interpolating in the midst of a discussion on the snbjeot of ghosts the following highly original objection :-4 Oh ! but the Bible says there may'nt bo ghosts !' This, of course, waa beside tho mark, even though the lady was prepared to quote chapter and verse-which I doubt. Ard some one, I remember, immediately hoisted her on her own petard with tho citation of the Witch of Endor evoking tho spirit of Samuel from the bowels of tho earth. There seems nothing in the existonco of ghosts actually at variance with onrrent religious notions. To ooncedo thoir existence is to poBtnlato im- mortality or, at any rate, a period of life of some sort after death. Though, on the other hand, it is possible to hold with the Bishop of St. Asaph in his o...
THE TWO-CARD TRICK [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
I THE TWO.OAED TRICK/ Hull Fair IB acknowledged to ba one of the largest of ita kind in the country. Thousands of excursionists flock in to the oity on Ootober 11th, and the succeeding days, and every blackguard, thief, and confidence trickster in tho North of England considers it a point of honour to honour Hull with a visit during the Fair Week. Games of chance and. gambling on or near the scene of the gala are rigorously put down by the authorities, but this year one swindler succeeded in plying his trade in spite of the police. He was a rogue, but an honest regjue-in one seneo. ' Gentlemen,'he said, addressing a crowd near tho Fair Ground, * I am a swindler, and I'm going to swindle you before your very eyeB. I tell you straight that you can- not find a greater rogue, a bigger black- guard, or a more knavish scoundrel than your humble servant, Tom Flee^ein, from Ohing-poo-poo. If you think you can get the best o' me, gentlomen, you'll ' drop' a bit, that's all.' This startling m...
CHAPTER II. LANDING IN AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
CHAPTER II. iiA.NDnr# m ATTcnrxAifB. No oity in the Britain of the Sooth Seas has known so many ups and downs as this fair, city of Anokland. It wag experiencing* tolerably good times just then, and on all hands it waB held that the one thing which militated against the permanent prosperity of the northern province was the native: .« difficulty, for the Maoris were masters .of, m'uoh of the very boat land to be found in. the province. ,., Waitemata Harbor was alive with ship-, ping, and many emigrants were landing, from different parts, and there was an air, of j aotivity and progress about the whole plaoe. The day after the arrival of the Edinboro? Castle, the emigrants landed with their lug-, gage, and the Campbells were more fortunato than some in finding temporary accommoda-, tion in a small tenement in Freeman's ¿Bay, which they took for one week prior to their departure to the country. By arrangement beforehand, Donald Preston was to take up his abode with th'cf Campbells for ...

LADIES' COLUMN. FOR AFTERNOON TEA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
.... Msm? ouunor. FOR AFTERNOON TEA. I have just been favoured with a reoipe for making the most delioious of confections. It disguises its virtues under the humble name of ' Scotchbread,' and owes its exist- ence to the following magic formula :-One , pound of flour ; half a pound of butter ; a quarter of a pound of oastor sugar ; the grated rind of one lomon ; a saltspoonful of salt. And the manner of dealing with these ingredients is delightfully simple. Mix them together, rub tho buttor into tho flour, press lightly into a buttered tin-a York- shire pudding-tin will do admirably-and bake in a moderate oven for fifteen minutes or so. "When done, sift powdered sugar over the top, and out into thin strips three inohes long.

DOGS THAT WEAR DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898
DOGS THAT WEAR DIAMONDS. Of course we all know the pampered lap- dog which feeds on mutton chops and truffles, and wears a fur coat ; and goloshes. He may often be seen .in Paris or Vienna, taking an airing in the park accompanied by his governess ; and he is not by any means unknown in England. But a ? dog that wears jewellery-and jewellery of the most costly description, too-is a less familiar object. In Paris there are, however, at least hali a dozen smart sooiecy beauties who have come to regard the jewelled dog as an indispensable accessory, and I notice that one or two stray specimens of this same jewelled pet have ulready found their way across the Channel. One little oreature-a - poodle, I think it was-I saw not long ago at the house of a friend in Mayfair, carried at least a hundred pounds'-worth of gold and preoious stones on his small person. A broad, gold collar adorned his fluffy neck, while a bracelet oomposed of gold links studded with tiny pearls ' and diamonds enoir...
