Victorian Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 13 December 1900
\ Victorian Settlement. It will come as a surprise to the pub lic to learn that the demand for land at Walmer- Estate, near Horsham, which was recently purchased by the Government for closer settlemeut, has been comparatively small, and it is feared that some of the farm blocks will remain on the hands of the Goverment. The estate was divided into 40 allotments, varying in area from 300 to -100 ji ths, and the land was offered to the public at £3 Gs per acre The successful applicants are to have 31 years in which to pay for the property, the instalments, including interest, being G per cent per annum on the total purchase money. Applications for tlie land closed on Saturday, and there were 22 received for 17 out of the 10 blocks, so that more than half the estate was unap plied for. As the last Government was induced to purchase this property because it was assured by the local residents that the blocks would be over applied for by the sons of fanners resi dent in the 'district, the...

The Rivci' Fatality. THE CORONER'S INQUIRY. On Tuesday afternoon, an inquiry into the death of Andrew Anderson, employed on the barge of the river steamer ' William Davies,' down the hold of which he fell and broke his neck last Saturday, was held by Mr Coroner Martin. Peter Westergard, master of the river 'steftme'r ' William Davis,' said lie was on board the steamer about six miles above Carrathool on the Stli inst., about 5.30 a.111. He was towing a barge, and it was daylight. The steamer got stuck on a sand bank in the middle of the river, and he called out to the man at the wheel of the barge, Andrew Anderson, to clear his barge of the steamer. Witness then ran down to see what water there was in the river, and as he was running along the deck the cook called out 'A man has fallen down the bold.' Then he saw one of the bargemen — Harvey — run and jump down the hold of the barge, and call out ' I think Andrew is dead.' The barge did not bump against the steamer, and he did not t...

Inquest on tlie Fire IN WARADGERY STREET. On Monday afternoon, Mr W. G. Martin, P.M., Coroner, held an en quiry into the fire which destroyed the residence of Mrs Margaret Morgan on the previous Wednesday morning. A jury was empanelled, and viewed the scene of the lire. , Margaret Morgan, a married woman, said the premises destroyed were owned by her four children, and oc cupied by herself.

Tbe building, which was of weatherboard with an iron roof, had six rooms and a kitchen, whilst there was also a bake house, a bedroom and bathhouse de tached. When she bought the pro perty it was insured for £325, and she continued to pay up the premiums to Mr Brown, the last being paid in March. The furniture she had in- ; sured herself in the same house for t £80, and the buggy and spring cart | for £15 each, including the harness, | but the buggy was not on the premises at time of the fire. On the night, of the fire s...
The Bishop's Tour. CONDITION OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 13 December 1900
Tlie Bislioji's Tour. Condition of the Country. The Bishop left Hay for his long north-western tour of visitation at the end of September. His route was from Hay to Booligal and Hiliston ; thence across to Mossgiel and Ivanhoe and up to Wilcannia. From Wil cannia he travelled north, as far as the White Cliffs opal field. From the opal field he drove to Broken Hill, and after spending ten days in tlie silver cityhe struck the Darling at Menindie i and followed it down to where it joins the Murray at Wentworth. Whilst at Wentworth he took a trip in tbe river boat 'Gem' to Lake Victoria. On returning to Wentworth he came up the Murray to Euston, got on to the Murrumbidgee at Balranald, and struck the Lachlan at Oxley. The four rivers mentioned are those which are implied in the name of the Diocese. It will be seen by this that his Lord ship traversed a large tract of coun try. He reports that all, with the 1 exception of patches of ' blown,' the I country was good until he readied the ...

Church of England Confir mation. ' The Bishop of Riverina administered the rite' of Confirmation in St. Paul's Pro-Cathedral last night. A large congregation witnessed and took part in the ceremony, the Church being well filled. Beside the Bishop, the Vicar, and the Rev. E. C. Ganly were present, the former acting as Chaplain and carrying the pastoral staff. Before putting the usual question, the Bishop gave an able and forceable exposition of the nature of the ordinance, its scriptural warrant, and the great assis tance it would he in the battle of life if received with right dispositions of heart. The question having been put ' and answered by each indiv idually, the ( i Bishop offered prayer, and the 'Veni i Creator' was solemnly sung by the | whole congregation. All the candi- , dates then received tlie laying on of hands, after which the Bishop exhorted them to guard and keep alive the gift which had been bestowed upon tlieni, and laid emphasis upon the Holy Sacra ment as the c...
THE SHAH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900
THE SHAH. During hie stay in Belgium the Shah caused a great deal of trouble and anxiety by his disregard of the public arrange ments made in his honour. When the Eastern potentate visits the West he thinks that railway trains and everything else ought to await his pleasure. The holiday-makers at Ostend were somewhat amused to see the Shah and his Grand Vizier fishing off the end of the pier. Shooting from the sea front at bottles thrown into the sea was also an Imperial pastime. One day he took a sudden fancy to hoar the London singer Mies Bradford. He telegraphed immediately for her, offering her £200 to come. He heard her sing for twenty minutes.
SCIENCE. DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900
80IKN0E. 4 ? 1 DIET. I ' Let mo tell you/ said Dr. Zelia, 'that I think young and working women do not ' pay sufficient attention to lunch. That meal is the most important of the day. Yet many of my friends — my acquaint ances I ought to eay, for if they were my friends 1 would teach them better — many of my acquaintances are contented with a sandwich, perhaps a glass of wine; some* times only water/ ' Well, some people I know delare that for the sake of the brain it is best not to lunch at all !' ' Why, that is contrary to reason. Health cannot be maintained at its high est pitch when the brain is allowed to go unnourished during the most hardwork ing hours of the day. Remember I am not a woman to clamour about women's rights and all that kind of thing, but I do think that all women of education could do as much as the average fa the way of making an income, did they take as good care of themselves in the way of feeding and enjoyment. A sansible man will naturally take a chop and a...
KING VICTOR EMMANUEL III. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900
KING VICTOR EMMANUEL III. The new King of Italy is but little known in his capital, for he has always lived far from Rome, and was recently at Naples as Commander-in-Chief. He is a fast friend of the German Emperor, with whom he keeps up a constant corres pondence, and, like him, is a good and true soldier. He follows the Emperor's pian ot suddenly giving the alarm to his troops, to make sure of their always being ready. King Victor Emmanuel is a re nowned numismatist, a learned man, and a good talker. He is also a good listener, and is fond of asking questions of people of superior attainments in art and science, for hia thirst for knowledge is very great. Queen Helene, hiB charming and beauti ful Bulgarian wife, is, as is well knows, childless, which naturally is a great grief to her. She is very fond of birds and flowers, but her greatest pleasure is in hunting. She is an excellent shot, and often used to accompany the King to the island of Monte Cristo on hunting trips. Coin col...
JEWELS PRIZED By MONARCHS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900
JEWELS PRIZED BY MONARCHS. Most of us have a ring or some other piece of jewellery of which we are parti cularly fond, and which we prize beyond any other pieces of jewellery in our possession. This favouritism extendB even to monarchs who possess so many rare and beautiful ornaments that one wonders how they are able to choose between them. The Czar of All the Russias has a ' re peater ' watch, worth four thousand roubles, of which he is very fond and which always accompanies him. William the Second to None, as a contemporary humourously christens him, invariably wears a little bracelet, hidden by his cuff. The late King of Italy always wore a scapulary chain of platinum. Marie Christine, the mother of the young King of Spain, is extremely fond of jewellery, and changes her rings, of which she possesses no fewer than two hundred and seventy, five or six times a day. The young Queen of Holland, on the other hand, dislikes jewels, and wears only a single diamond in each ear. The aged...

PRINCE OF WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900
PRINCE OF WALES. An American paper with a genius for multiplication recently asserted that the Prince of Wales pays J&l each for bis Cigars. This is, of course, absurd; but the paragraph led someone to inquire the actual facts in connection with his Royal Hichnesa's smokes. The Prmcn'n ritrara. it BeemB, are manufactured specially in Havana, Cuba, at the factory of Messrs. Suarez y Ca. , and are made exclusively ! from the choicest pickings of the tobacco grown in a district which is supposed to produce the most superfine grade of tobacco in the world. The men who make these cigars receive magnificent wages— fVow £7 to £12 a week! The best cigars take from ten to fifteen minutes to roll. During working hours the cigar-makers are continually read to — generally from the light novels of the country— so as to keep them awake.

TONICS, LITERARY AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900
TONICS, LITERARY AND OTHERWISE. Victor Hugo waB a great creature, a prose poet and a romancer, for whom the world should be grateful. Whenever you want a mental stimulus, after a course of the problem play or the psychological novel, take down ' The Toilers of the Sea ' or ' L'Homme qui Rit/ and read the marine chapters with the wind, and rain, aud the snow, and the tempeBt in them, and if that do»is not pull 1 you together go to the first volume of Carlyle's ' French Revolution,' and then tone down with a chapter from the Bible, and you will find the literary tonic as quick and exhilarating aB a champagne cocktail cor rected by a New York expert. This luxr- by the way, is not unknown in London j but our ' American bar ' is a far more expensive luxury than the real thing on the other 6ide of the Atlantic. Do you remember how deftly Mr. Lowne, in ' Thoroughbred/ at Toole's, 'en gineered' that American drink in poor Lumley's delightful comedy? It was a lesson in ' business.'
