Youthful Independence. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Youthful Independence. Scotchmen are tenacious of 'the glorious privi lege of being independent.' When Scotland's eloquent divine, Thomas Chalmers, was a youth of eighteen years, ho took a tutorship in a family in which there were ten children to teach. None of them bad the least regard for their boy-tutor. The elders of the household, being rich, ignorant folks, treated the youth, who had graduated from the Academical and Tlu ological schools of St. Andrew's, with cold, contemptuous reserve. jLue puputi were uiburuerjy, »nu young uuaimers had to resort to strong measures in order to secure obedience. His discipline offended tho ladies of the house, who showed their displeasuro by high looks and a forbidding manner. Even the guests of the family, taking their cue from it, regarded the tutor as unworthy of their notice. His employers were in the habit of giving supper parties, in which the tutor was not included, though his pupils were. He had his supper sent to his own room. This la...

Five Hundred Bears. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

Five Hundred Bears. Mr. Theodore Roosevelt, in his 'Wilderness Hunter,' speaks of General Wade Hampton, of South Carolina, as the man who, ' with horse and hound, has been the mightiest hunter America haa ever seen.' His special game has been bear and d«.er, but he has also had the fortune to kill some sixteen cougars — the panther of the East, the mountain lion of tho West, and the lion and puma of South America. Of black bears, according to Mr. Boosc-velt, lie has probably killed more than any other man living in tho United States. Thirty or forty of these he has killed with the knife. His plan was, when he found that the dogs had tho bear at bay, to walk up close and cheer. them on. They would instantly seize the bear in a body, and he would then rush in and stab it behind the shoulder, reaching over bo as to inflict the wound on tho opposite side from that where he stood. He escaped scatheless from all these encounters save one, in which he was rather severely torn ill the forea...

BROKEN LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 20 January 1894

BROKEN LAWS. Two men— one of them indifferent to religion, tbe other an earnest believer in the claims of Christianity upon the human soul — went together to the valley of the Cnnemaugh after tho great disaster that came from the breaking of a dam in the hope that they might he of use to the sufferers. As they stood looking at the awful field of wreck age, beneath which lav hundreds of ruined homes, nnd uncounted decaying bodies, the first man said with a shudder : ' And yet you believe in an all-powerful, merci ful God ! Whore is His mercy'here ?' ' This is man's work, for which he alone is responsible,' was the prompt reply. ' God made the water and gave it a certain weight. He made earth and gave it a certain force of resistance. He made men and give them the intellect to under stand these inexorable laws of weight and resist ance. When men enclose a huge body of water behind a clay wall, which they ought to know is too weak to hold it, and then build their houses in a gully befo...

Vertigo Induced by Height. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Vertigo Induced by Height. Chevereul's well-known experiments with the exploratory pendulum and the divining rod show that if we represent to ourselves a motion in any direction the hand will unconsciously realize ifc says the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette, and com municate it to the pendulum. The tipping tables realize a movement we are anticipating through the intervention of a real movement of the hands, of which 'we are not conscious. Mmd-reading by those who divine by taking your hand where you have hidden anything is a reading of imperceptible motions by which your thoughts are translated without your being con scious of them. In cases of fascination and vertigo, which are more visible among children than among adults, a movement is begun the suspension of which is prevented by a paralysis of the will, and it carries us to suffering and death. When a child I was navigating a plank on the river without a thought that I might fall. All at once the idea came like a diverging forc...

Elizabeth of Austria. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Elizabeth of Austria. Soon after the marriage of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria she was visiting a barrack, when above the beating of drums in a distant courtyard Bhe heard sharp cries of pain. ' What ia that ?' she asked. ' Merely soldiers undergoing the punish ing of the whipping-rods,' she was told. The young empress's attention was not to be diverted until she bad made further inquiries j then she begged of her husband, as a wedding gift, that this barbaric punishment should be abolished. The new law on military punishments — of Janu ary 15, 1855— shows that Franz Josef yielded to her entreaties. Subsequently she had the chain ing of prisoners stopped, and many other hardships of soldiers and prisoners lessened. As these incidonts indicate, sho has a tender heart. The story is told of her that because one of the nurses of her little girl, Marie Valerie, waB worried about her aged parents and little children, from whom she was separated, the Empress took a long ride twice a wee...

A Fatal Dream. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

A Fatal Dream. Soon after tho assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the late Charles Dickens was her Majesty's guest for t. day at Windsor Castle; and in the course of conversation with the Queen he related to her a remarkable dream of President Lincoln's. On tho afternoon of the day on which the Presi dent was shot (April, 1865) there was a Cabinet Council, at which Mr. Lincoln presided. Mr. Stan ton, who wa3 at the time commander-in-chief of the Northern troops, arrived rather late. They were, indeed, waiting for him, and on his entering the room tne rresmenc DroKe oti m something tnat ne was saying, and remarked, ' Let us proceed to busi ness, gentlemen.' Mr. Stanton then noticed, with great surprise, that the President sat with an air of dignity in his chair instead of lolling about in it in the most un gainly attitudes, as his invariable custom was; and that instead of telling irrelevant or questionable stories, he was grave and calm, and quite a differ-* ent man.

Mozart at Vienna. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Mozart at Vienna. The imperial family of Austria, at the time that the child musician Mozart began -his career, were enthusiastic lovers of music. The Empress Maria Theresa was the daughter of Charles VI., who was an_ accomplished performer on the piano. All of her children received a good musical education. _ At court they used to have concerts in which the littla archdukes and archduchesses took part. So the little Mozsrt was received by them all with open arms when he visited Vienna. At his first visit to them he sat on the empress's knee, and kissed her as if they were old friends. The entire court were delighted with his talent and his sweet, bright disposition. The Emperor Francis I. passed hours with him, and named him his ' Little Sorcerer.' Of the little princes and princesses, Marie Antoinette, who was only a few months older than he, became his special friend and protector. One day when he slipped on tho polished floor and fell, she ran as fast as she could to help him up...

Wonderful Sun-Clouds. Theories as to what the sun is, and how it manages to supply such a. marvellous quantity of light and heat, a very small fraction of which suffices to keep the earth a living planet, must always comai, ind great interest when they come from men of high standing in science. If such theories do not cover the whole truth at least they teach us something that wo did not know, or had not thought of before. Recently Dr. G. Johnstone stoney Jias restated some laeas 01 111s aoout uie sun wliieh were originally put forth more than twenty five years ugo. He thinks that late discoveries have tended to confirm his theory. In his view the photosphere, which.is the shining shell of the sun that we see, and from which most of its radiation proceeds, consists of sooty clouds raised to a temperature of incandescence. These blazing clouds are on an average two or three hundred miles broad and several hundred long. Between them is seen a less luminoub background 2'roducing tho ap...
