WIT SAVED HIM. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 22 March 1884
WIT SAVED HOT. At a time when England was swarming with strolling players, whose moans of sub sistence were : at times questionable, and the game laws very strict, a poor player, whose luck had not. been the brightest for somo time, and who was sadly in want of a square meal, was crossing a gentleman's game preserve. A plump hare ran across his path, and the needy one saw no harm in knocking it over with a stone. He picked it up, and was about to bag it, when the gamekeeper came on the scene, and, despite all the protestations ot the poor player, he was brought bofore the nearest magistrate, and charged with a bread] of the game laws. When asked what he had to say for himself, the worthy lcnight of the sock and buskin struck a theatrical atti tude, and addressed the magistrates some what after the manner of Brutus addressing the Romans on the assassination of CtDsar, thus: Britains, hungry men, and epicures! hear me for my cause, and be silent that ye may hear; believe me for mine h...

(Dnifutiil 11 cre.fr». «»> wo gone to rer doom. On'e moro poor unfortunato gono down to her doom. Quo moro lifeless body is laid in the tomb; Ono moro wretchod sinner could 110 longer restrain— Is driven to despair by her own madden'd bruin. As sho stood .on tlio cliff, lior thoughts how they ronm'd, Sho gazed 011 tlio deep, o'er the white bil lows' foam ; Oho leap from tho roclr, there's 110 ono to SftVfi, And sho was caught in-tho crest of that cruel dark wave. Ono moro burden'd heart is free from all pain, Ono more silent tongue shall ne'er speak again; In tho bed of tho waters sho had lov'd for to lie, To be caught in the wave sho long'd for to die; No thought of her soul, there's nothing to save— No dark ovil thoughts when once in tho grave. Somo thought it mere accident—others said suicide, As sho was dashed on tho rocks by the fast flowiug tide. Ono more wearied body lias gone to its rest, Her sins sho had thrown on her own Saviour's breast; Had she but trusted Him faithfu...
Select Poetry. THE DIGGER'S BURIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 22 March 1884
3clcrt THE DIGGER'S BURIAL. 0.7 the gory field of battle, 'Neath the dim and sulphurous sky, 'Mid the cannon's thundering rattlo, ' Bravely doth the soldier die ; 'Tis tho death, for him most glorious, When a bullet lays him low, And the battle cry victorious Tells of many a vanquished foe. Far upon the heaving ocean, Where the storm-king's in his wrath 'Mid tho■ elements emotion, Threatens all to cross tho path ; Mark your hapless vessel founder, , Gulphed beneath the greedy wave, While tho sea birds shriek around her, 'Tin the sailor's fitting grave. In the freshness of his vigour, Sea, in yonder narrow hold, Eagerly tho hardy digger Sinks in search of hidden gold ; Fathoms down his way achieving, Deep into the earth's dark womb, Foot by foot still stoutly cleaving, Digging for himself a tomb. Hark ! tho oartli gives way above him, And ialls in with deafening roar; Woe is me for those who love him, For they shall ne'er see him more. Down the sliaft his messmates calling, Listen wi...
THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN 1883. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 22 March 1884
THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN 1883. Reviewing the history: of the past year the Times observes:—In England on every side resounds a clamour as if the constitution were perishiug of a dry rot, or were being cast away by the most ignorant and reckless of helstiien. Never were, partisans more vituperated or fuller ot alarming prophesies. Social problems lwvo been perplexing the public mind. The American dynamite league has been parading its maliguity, however impotent. More spontaneously the nation has become suddenly awake to the existence of cancers and plague spots which its wealth has produced and appears unable to cure. Its territorial dependencies have added other topics of anxiety to aggregate fund. India has been convulsed by the Ilbert Bill, and India trade is harassed with cares of its own which necessarily arouse an echo in England. There has been a pause in the speed of Canadian progress. Radical faults have been discovered in the West India institutions. Australia has been setting...

And . the girl took a cover off a basket [ and remarked that she thought G5 lotters would do to begin with. j The other G5 would be produced as soon as the case was before the court. " And outside of these letters?" queried tire lawyer. " Mary Ann, produce your diary," said [the mother. "Now turn to tho head, Pro mises, and see how many times the mar | riage was talked over.
