The Art of Reading. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

The Art of Eeading, In the new number of the Religious Review of Reviews is an interesting article by tho editor, on the Art of Reading. He says it is said that when Demosthenes was asked the rules of oratory, he answered, 'The first is delivery, the second de livery, and the third delivery.' This is another way of saying that an orator should so speak as to teach, to please, and to persuade. Without doubt the best delivery is that which is f.lift innRf: natural, thp mnnfc fv.-i.-i Frnm fvi.il artifice, and that in which the speaker is most self-forgetful. Never think of yourself when speaking, but only of your subject. Every sentenee may be a flower, but tho hand of the gardener must not be seen. Every line may be music, but the musician must be neither seen or heard. The modest speaker always labours to obliterate himself. What was the great secret of Thomas Chalmers' success ? It waa that he abandoned the measured, artificial delivery, and adopted the colloquial, offensive to the...

Irritated Bears. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

Irritated Bears. The first impulse of some men when thoy stub their toes against a stump is to turn and kick it. The bears of India, when wounded, always bite something. ' Threo illustrations of this' prompting of physical irritation are given in General Hamil ton's ' Sport ic Southern India.' He shot at an old she-bear, ? and the ball struck her ia the fore-leg. Instantly she seized the leg between her jaws and bit it horcely. At another time the general .fired at a bear with a cub. On receiving the shot, the bear, with a ferocious roar, rushed upon the cub, cuffed and bit it; while the little one kept screaming, as if to say, ' I didn't do it, ma I' Onco the general Baw two bears, a male and a female, feeding on the slope of a long hill. He went round tho hill to get above them, and on look ing over the crest, saw the male bear not forty yards off. He fired and apparently wounded it. Th§ animal jumped into the air, bit the wound, and then rushed furiously at its companion. Sho, li...

FICTION. ?'n;... ?? FromEiigHMi. AmcrlMin, nml other Periodicals. A DARING GAME. CHAPTER I. THE GAME WELL BEGUN. Sir Harold Wynde, baronet, was standing upon the pier-head at Brighton, looking idly seaward, and watching the play ot the sunset rays on the ?waters, the tossing, white-aapped waves, and the white sails in tho distance against the blue sky. He was not yet fifty years of age, tall and hand some and stately, with fair complexion, fair hair, and keen, blue eyes, which at times beamed with a ?warm and genial radiance that seemed to emanate from his sonl. The rare nobility of that soul expressed itself in his features. His commanding intellect betrayed itself in his square, maesive brows. His grand nature was patent in every look and smile. He was a widower with two children, the elder a son, who was a captain in a fine regiment in India, the younger a daughter still at boarding-school. He possessed a magnificent ?eafcate in Kent, ft house in town, and a marine villa, and, at...

A Game Fight. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

A Game Fight. A man, whose height is scarcely five feet, and whose weight iB not an ounce over 140 pounds. He has a mild blue eye, a frank face, and his voice is pleasant to the ear. You'd pick him out in a crowd as a mild-mannered, tender-hearted man, and yet he is ' Dakota Jack ' and has killed nine or ten men. He has been slashed and cut, and shot and clubbed, but he seems to bear a charmed life. It is high noon, and the long, straggling street of the frontier town is almost deserted by human life. Not because the sun beats down fiercely, nor that the half-civilised population iB asleep, but becauBe the town marshal said to Dakota Jack last night at ten o'clock : ' If you are in this town at noon to-morrow I will hunt you dovjn and kill you like a dog !' Well, 12 o'clock has come. The threat came from a man whose bravery is unquestioned, and whose skill with tbe gun is marvellous. He had uttered similar warnings before. . Some of the desperadoes had left for other fields; others ...
