The Roundabout. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 28 January 1898

(Compiled by " Echua.") It has been truly observed that the misery of human life is undoubtedly made up of a multiplicity of marring incidents, each separated from the other by certain intervals. One year the death of a child; years after a failure in trade; after another longer or shorter period a daughter may have married unhappily; the integral parts that; com pose the sum total of the happi ness of a man's life are easily counted and distinctly remembered. The hap piness of life, on the contrary, is made up of minute fractions; the little soon-forgotten charities, a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt com pliment in the disguise of playful raillery, and the innumerable^ other infinitesimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling. Unorthodox as is the assertion, I must confess to a lurking predilection for what are called " bad boys." The good boys of books are delightful creations, undoubtedly, but they are just as impossible as the Flying Dutchman. Almost all " good boys...

A SYDNEY MAN FALLS ON A HOT STEAM-PIPE IN A BATH. HIS FLESH ADHERED TO THE PIPE LIKE A STEAK TO A FRXINGPAN. AN AWFUL SIGHT. While in a bath in Pitt -street, a Mr. Jarvis had the misfortune to slip and fall on the hot water pipes, and before he could be rescued he was scalded and burnt in a terrible way. The shock of the burning and the fall proved to be very disastrous for Mr. Jarvis, and for a number of years after he was a confirmed invalid, suffering terribly from locomotor ataxia and other forms of paralysis. A few months ago, however, reports began to be circulated in the neighbourhood that Mr. Jarvis was getting round again, and that he had had a most marvellous recovery from the most apparently incurable malady. It was on account or these rumors that a special reporter from the " Sydney Worksr" was despatched to^ get all information regarding same, and one afternoon he made his way to his house, 45 Crown-lane, Ultimo. Mr. Thos Jarvis was discovered nursing a two'year-old bab...

The Storyteller. "In Love's Crucible." CHAPTER XXVII. AT THE TITAN'S SHIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 28 January 1898

[By Bertha M. Clay.] CHAPTEK XXVII. AT THE TITAN'S SHIELD. In the meantime the picnickers had reached the Titan's Shield, and moat of them had begun to make the descent. As ohere was no way of avoiding doing so with out exciting comment, Guy had taken Maida's arm under his. She was more apathetic than he now. She had expected to meet the reproachful eyes of Caryl Wilton, but, true to his promise, he had gone. Lord Algy assured Maida that he had done all he could to keep him, but without avail, and Maida had said to her . self that thus the last liuk that bound her to the old self was broken. And yet it was with no sense of relief that she compre hended that he had gone out of lier life. Hers was rather the apathy, the resignation of the condemned criminal. She had sent him away because she loved him too well to run the risk of haying him some day discover her shame, and turn from her with scorn. The path, narrow and winding, allowed, of but two abreast, and many of the party went in...

Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 28 January 1898

\FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The weather during the week has been cblight.fully cool, the nights especially so. Rain is however wanted to give a spring to the grass. The heavy rain along the tributaries bf the Lachlan has caused a welcome rise, and it wili be the means of doing considerable good in. purifying the water. Work on the railway drags its weary way along—such work that a few men and boys could do in half the time that has been devoted to it, if a bit of pressure were used. During this time the greatest in convenience is being experienced by a long-suffering people. An accident occurred to the anti quated eugine on Tuesday. The result was Sydney passengers had to return on foot, a distance of six mileoj and remain until the following morning—a very nice state of affairs ndeed for commercial men, who have made prior arrangements in their tour of travel. It is about time that an indignation meeting, representing the district was held, urging the Government to assume control...
