The Sketcher. Confessions of a Cyclist. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 13 June 1896

The Sketclier. Confessions of a Cyclist. Having decided to learn -bicycling, my first step was to mate my wilL Next I took out'an Accident Insurance Policy, for I am the father of a family, and I judged it wise to neglect no reasonable precaution before embarking on this dangerous enterprise. As the time drew near when I must take my first lesson I suffered from a deep depression of spirits. My life appeared before me with that strange clearness 'With which the past reveals itself to drowning men. I thought of my friends ami my enemies, of the rash words I had spoken, and the outbursts of temper which had estranged more than one of those who were, dear to me. 'Most especially did I wish, at this crisis of my life, to be reconciled to Peter Williamson. For some years there had been a coolness between us, 'but when I knocked at his door on that memorable night in December my heart w^s soft and tender towards all man kind, and particularly towards Feter. He seemed a. little surprised t...

The Wages of a Poet. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 13 June 1896

The Wages of a Poef» A story Is told in the London " Daily News" about the new Poet Laureate. Or? the death of the Duke of Clarence Jig sent to a morning paper some verses lamenting the event. The contribution being- accepted, a cheque was forwarded for £25. This the poet returned with the remark that he "could not accept payment on account of a nation's tears." When the Duke of York was married he sent to the same Journal an eplthala mlum. This duly appeared, but was not acknowledged by a remittance, an omission that gave the poet pain. Being reminded that he had sent back the earlier cheque, he Insisted that the cases were different. ""Whl-le I could not," he said, " consent to make money out of « nation's tears, there Is no reason why I should not be paid for adding to a nation's smiles," A German has Invented a device to prer vent any fluid from boiling over, even on i open.

STRANGE CHARACTERS IN POLICE COURTS. IF the seamy side of life is seen where justice is dispensed, acd if there is much I to sadden the observer, on the other hand humour enters with the eccentrics. They are not of necessity prisoners in grip of the law. Sometimes as visitors seized by whim they run risks of punishment. . TO TRY HOW XT FRfcT. There was a carious incident in a London police court on a recent morning. A man dressed like a ooster stood with the usual crowd of people interested, and of the idly carious, waiting for the arrival of the magistrate. Suddenly he darted forward, passed the official!) on guard, and himself nswnmed magisterial state on the bench. He wanted to try how it felt, and to create a sensation. Of coarse, he was quickly ousted.

Chapter [?] MRS. RIVERS DECIDES HER FATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 13 June 1896

Gbapter jjtt i - TO" MRS. RIVERS DECIDES HER FATE. During the whole of the day following Everard's death. Mr*. Rivers remained with her brother. His condition did not change muter;ally either for better or worse. He rambled incessantly, and all his speech was of mortgages, debts, banktuptcy, and other similar topics which would have start'ed the many rivals who envied him his com mercial t riumphs. As the evening drew on he became some what quieter, however, from sheer exhaus tion, and Mrs. Rivers, whose plans were cow fully matured, announced her intention of going to Park-square, in order to see how Reginald did, and to give her ...aid, whom she had left there, some orders about packing. " I shall be back before midnight, most likely," she said to the nurses, and taking one last, brief look at her brother, she quitted the house. She drove first to Rivers Hall and there dismissed Mr. Lynwood's carriage, saying sha should probably take her own, which was still kept at the hall. , Sh...

The intimacy with the Rivera family, from which she had hoped fo much, seemed Eiely to die out altogether. Mrs. Hirers, of coarse, spent nearly all her time at Reginald's lodgings in Park-square, and Sverard also had almost deserted Kivers Pork. The gossips said his fickle fancy had bean caught by the charms of a beautiful &nriesqne actress, who had recently per formed at one of the Leeds theatres. Be (his ssa it may, he constantly ran up to toisn, and seemed to have forgotten the esisiencs of Sthel Melville. Mr. Lynwood too, did not appear anxious to continue tho acquaintanc...
