LAMENTABLE IGNORANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 3 May 1884
LAMENTABLE IGNORANCE. During the hearing of the Coorna rape case at the circuit court, Goulburn, one of the witnesse^ for the prosecution, named Bob ert Evans, who bolongs to the Coouia dis trict, displayod an amount of ignorance that one would soarcely imagine to be possible in these days of almost universal education. The witness was a shepherd, and a married man, and in giving his evidence ho stated, amidst suppressed laughter, that he did not konw tho month of tho year, and that he thought Christmas Eve was on tho 27th of September. In answer to Sir George Innes, he stated that he had no business to do with the months of the year at all. Witness, who was a respectably-dressed inan, gave his evidence in a most peculiar manner, and soemed to be in a state of fog generally. Tho complainant, a girl sixteen years of age, on being put in tho box, likowiso showed an amount of ignorance and depravity that was simply astounding. In answer to tho orown prosecutor, she stated that she coul...
THE POPULATION OF RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 3 May 1884
THE POPULATION OF RUSSIA. Tjie oensus returns give the following details about tho population of Russia. On January 1, 1882, the inhabitants of Russia numbered 91,118,514, living in G3 provinces and 11 districts. During the year 1881 there were 4,043,868 births and 2,820,488 deaths registered, the growth of the pop ulation being 1,217,425 inhabitants. At this rate the population would rise to a hun dred millions in 189Q, and in GO or 70 years it would have doubled. At present the pop ulation of tho empire is 94 millions. The growth of population is largest in southern parts and smallest in the northorn, where also the mortality is greatest,. It is difficult to say whether this is to bo attributed to the climato or the economic conditions of the country. The average of life in Russia is 2G years in Europe and 81 in Asia. This fact is explained by the enormous mortality of young chiliiron. It has been ascertained that 60 per cent, of the children die under the age of five years, which...

HOW A WOMAN RETIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 3 May 1884
ROW A WOMAN RETIRES. She began by wishing that she had gone to bed three hours before, but she had not the slightest idea that it was so late, although her 'grandfather's clock * had been staring her in the face the whole evening, and the 'clock in the steeple' had' struck one' several times during the same period. Aut she dreads going to bed, it is such a job. Then she moralises upon the bad effects of sitting up late, and then declares that no one knows how bad it makes her feel next morning. She says, however, that she must just finish the chapter, for she is most through, or must oom pleto this leaf in some embroidery, or knit into the middle of her needle ; or has got to mix up the head; or at any rate some excuse is brought forward to keep her up about an hour after sho had made up hor mind to go to bed. Then she unbuttons hot* shoes, or lets out the_ job, while she swears or affirms that she is so tired that she is just ready to drop, and is willing to make her affidavit to t...

DICKENS, THE TEACHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 3 May 1884
J>ICKEJSTS, THE TEACHER. An American lady who recently visited Ltou d hi thus moralises ou Charles Dickens :— All grimy old Loudon town was brightened, softened, yet mellowed and made altogether lovely by the humidly golden atmosphere which Turner painted so well and revelled in so manly. This atmosphere, in its tan gible presence, is London's one beautiful garment, and when it is folded about hor she is transformed from a gigantic hard handed, money-changing wench to a queen. Our American custom of Sunday morn ing late rising, loitering, and our eleven o'clock service, brought me to the main en trance of Westminster Abbey after every sitting in that part of the structure was oc cupied. I was directed to the ' poots' cor ner,' where temporary benches had been placed for the accommodation of the un ! usual number of worshippers. The toned | light, the exquisite music whioh flooded and echoed and lovingly lingered among the lofty arches, the dignified, impressive Church of England ...
