HE WAS SENSITIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 13 June 1896

HE WAS SENSITIVE. THE following anecdote of Handel illust rates the extremely sensitive condition of the great composer's nerves. Though out wardly of an uncouth and robust appearance he suffered so much that he could not bear to hear the tuning of musical instruments; this -was, therefore, always done before his arrival in the orchestra. A musical wag, knowing his failing, and wanting a laugh at Handel's expense, managed to gain access to the instruments, after the musi cians, having tuned, had left themfor a few minutes at "a performance" wKen the Prince of Wales was to be present, and unstrung them a half note or so lower than the organ. On the arrival of the Frince, Handel gave the signal for the commencement of the oratorio eon spiriio, whereon a terrible dis cord ensned. The enraged conductor started from his seat, overturning a double bass viol which stood in his way, seized hold of a kettledrum, and threw it with such force at the head of the leader of the band that he lost ...

COMEDY IN REPROOF. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 13 June 1896

COMEDY IN REPUOOF. The Attic salt was no doubt rccog;iise<I by all who took in the point of an answer once made to Sir Fletcher Norton by Lord Muusficld. The advocate was ploading in a case of manorial rights. He was ni» favoarite,ow,in£ to his brusque and peculiai deportment. In his speech for his client he gave an opening for rebufce. " My Lord," he said, " I can illustrate the point; by an instance in my own person. I myseif havo two little manors." His slight pause was filled to the amuse ment of tbo court. Lord Mansfield bowed, and with a bland smile observed .' We all know it, Sir Fletcher." Andacity that met its penalty was in a wonderfully clever rebuke'given by Liszt to the late Emperor of Russia. The great maestro was engaged to play atone ot the Imperial palaces, and many members of the Imperial family were present. Liszt gave a truly brilliant display, but abruptly stopped. His quick professional pride had been touched. He had heard the Czar talk ing Noting th...

Charleville Courier. TICK FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 13 June 1896

TICK FEVER. THE clear and exhaustive report by the Chief Inspector of Stock, which appeared iu the Brisbane Courier of May 30th, although, absolutely disproving the charge of snpineness which has been made against the Government in its dealings with this disease, is anythiug bat re assuring to cattle-owners. Whilst holding forth some hope that patient scientific research may yet discover some preventive on the familiar lines of inocalation, Mr. Gordon is evidently hopeless of stamping oat the disease. The problem at present is to con fine the ticks to that portion of the colony in which they have already established themselves ; bat we confess that a carefal study of the report and Mr. Tozer's comments thereon gives little encouragement to the hope that a solution is pos sible. The tick, it seems, is almost in visible for a considerable portion of its .career, and is capable of being carried not only by cattle and horses, bat in the clothing of haman beings or the wrappings of parce...

If we look round the circle of our acquaintance, says. ttie Stiitniuy IVhtd, be it large or small, * we generally know of one girl, at least, who is always welcome at town or country house, and might, if she chose, spend her life in paying a round of visits away from home. She - may not be nch, extraordinarily pretty, or clever, but for all that she iaa universal favourite with both sexes. ' What is the secret of her attractiveness t and why is she pressed to remain on for weeks perhaps to the astonishment of acknowledged beauties to whom hospitality has been offered for a few days only? The reason is not far to seek. With a good-tempered umelfisUness, she adapts herself to the company in which she is thrown, aud the ways of the house. She quickly Fees where and when she can be of use, is not above spending a morning in the nursery, amusing the children,:if the nurses have an, unusual press of sewing on hand, has ready access to a little work-case wherewith...

SAVED BY A PLAYBILL. A PASTY of Russian engineer officers ventured into the hostile territory' of Bokhara, with the hope of surveying a iportion of it before they were - discovered. Bat they were compielled to relinquish their design by the appearance of an over whelming force of Bckhariote horsemen, who quickly eurrourided them. Seeing that resistance was impossible, the Russian leader advanced with friendly greetings, 1 and announced himself as a special envoy 1 from the Czar to the Ameer, and in that 1 character demanded to be led into the presence of that important personage. The 1 ruse worked 'like a charm, and the party 1 made a triumphant entry into the capital, escorted by their captois.
