CAN YOU SPARE AN ACRE [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 4 January 1899
'CAN YOU SPARE AN ACRE ? Many farmers who live within reach of towns are able to utilise a few acres in the cultivation of the small fruits and 'vege- tables, and here and there we find one can produce a few raspberries, gooseberries, apples, pears, etc. It is a good way to bring the boys along, and for that matter the girls too, and teach them how to make a beginning in the world and earn some _ thing for themselves. The tune will be when within the coming generation, these ♦owns will be largely populated, and vege table gardening profitable. It is always so for home use, and there is no* reason 'why it should not be so for market pur poses.

The Other World [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 4 January 1899
The Other World: It lies around us like a cloud, The world v» e do not see *. ~~. Yet the sweet closing of an eye May bring us there to be'. Its gentle breezes fan onr cheek Amid our wordly care3 , -?- ' Its gentle voices whisper, love And mingle with oni prajers Sweet hearts around us throb and beat, Sweet helping hands are stirred, And palpitates the veil between, With breathings almost heard. So thin, so soft, so sweet they guide, So near to press they seem, They lull us gently to our rest, They melt into our dream . ' And in the hush of rest they bring, 'Tis easy now to see How lovely and how sweet a pass The hour oE death may be, To close the eye and close the ear, Wrapped in a trance of buss, And geatly drawn in loving arms, To swoon from that, to this Scarce' knowing if «e vake or sleep, Scarce asking where we are, To feel all evil sink away, « All sorrow and all care ! Sweet souls around us watch us still, Press nearer to our side , Into our thoughts, into our prayers, With ...
A Medical Joker. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 4 January 1899
A Medical Joker. , .In the general way medical folk are not apt to be jocose. Is it because daily duty compels them to look upon sickness and suffering? Now and then, however, a reckless practitioner, impatient of pulse feeling, demands a guffaw from Ms brethren and has sufficient astuteness to know that the pleasantcst and easiest way of obtaining it is to have a little supper. On such occasions the medicos are not less ready to tap the jugular vein than they are to tap the jugular. Not long since the members of the New York Medical Club were summoned to at tend a regular meeting at the residence of a waggish member, Doctor Paine, and the notice ran in the followine classic style. 'SCIENS, SOCIALITE SOBRIETE.' Doctores ! Ducumnexinundinitu Panes: triticum at ait. Expecto meta fumen tu te and eta beta pi.

THE MERSEY REGATTA AND SPORTS. POSTPONED TILL JANUARY 23 [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 4 January 1899
THE MERSEY EEGATTA AND SPORTS. POSTPONED TILL JANUARY 23. After the elaborate and very efficient arrangements made for the annual Mersey Eegatta and Sports, it, was a keen disap pointment to know that the clerk of the weather, with inexorable will, had decreed that Monday's gala day should not be. This regatta, which is an institution of nearly 40 years' standing, and is one of the principal features of New Year gatherings in the colony, attracts a very great num ber of visitors from all parts of the island, and had the weather remained fine on Monday the attendance would probably have been a record one. As it was, Devonport was- thronged with visitors, md everything, with the one exception— ihe weather — made for a successful lay. The special and ordinary trains rom'both sides of the town brought large complements of passengers, the railway station presenting quite an animated appearance with * the busy traffic! Unfortunately, however, the prospect was a dreary one. On the streets,...

. T(K HOLIDAYS, A BAD EXDIXG. A NORTH-WEST GALE. TORKENTS OF RAIN. [ Though splendid weather, from every point of view, prevailed through the Christ-^ mas holidays, the New Year's Day of 1899, like that of its predecessor, was destined to be ushered in most inauspiciously— that is us regards the various sports gath erings that had been arranged throughout the north-west, or for the matter of that through tho colony as a whole. Indica tions' of the unfavorable change were noticeable on Sunday, and towards ci en ing the disagreeable rain showers were looked upon as the precursors of what was to be expected on the monow. Through out the night heaiy rain fell at intervals, and on Monday morning the grim forecast became verified, for the strong easterly ureezo smtteci round to the . north-west, mid all day long blew with the force of a galo, accompanied by a driving, penetrat ing _ rain, rendering all holiday seekers decidedly uncomfortable. The conse quence was that numerous fixtures th...

The export of potatoes has practically started ; the ss Tekapo, which left this after noon for Sydney, took abont 1,000 sacks. With regard to the quantity, it is rather unfortun ate that the departure of the steamer was delayed, as it can scarcely be expected that they are sufficiently set to stand delay or much handling. Some affirm that this lot will not suffer, and that the rain, instead of 'Injuring them, will be beneficial. The report ?of same on arrival at Sydney will be eagerly looked for, and it is to be hoped they will ! 'mve in good order. With regard to the ioson's output, it is now beyond doubt that ic yield will be good, the splendid rains of ?'stcrday and the previous night being all that could be wished as far as potatoes and ^oot crops aro concerned.
