Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 17 September 1898
Gleanings, ? ♦ ? Switzerland enjoys tho un enviable distinction of having a larger percentage of lunatics than any other country In the canton of Zurich there are 3,2G1 in a population of 339,000. Within the last-thirty years there has been on the British coasts over 60.000 wrecks, ths loss being 20,000 lives. The Banbof England's cred it-was saved by the timely issue of £1 notes. The heads of persons be headed, for State offences were formerly exposed to view on long poles uponXondon Bridge The last head so exhibited was that of Venner, the fifth mon archy zealot, beheaded in the reign of Charles II. The cfonquest of France in 1S71 was a dear bargan for Germany after all. Tiio L200,000,000 indemnity was mainly, spent on fortresses, and ,' since the - war Ger many has spent over L600 000,0Q0 on her own army alone.

PUBLIC PRATINGS. [We do not in any way identify ourselves with the opinions expressed in this xolumn. — Ed. G.I.'] TO THE BDITOH, Sir, — In your last issue you refer' to Ashfield's Parliamentary represen tative in ' somewhat endearing terms ' — ' that brilliant and brainy Barny Wise' you term him. Well, in my opihionj Wise is nothing but a fraud ; he played rather lo\r down on his old chief, refused to have any truck with George Reid (jealousy the cause), and, now we find him in the enemy's camp — he, an avowed Freetrader chirping merrily under the wing of the Pro teotiohist ' clucker.' AVise may havo brains, but he has never put same to any practical use for the benefit of his country, whilst -as a politician he is shifty, and, besides, he has no sym pathy with anyone not within his own clique, and is no friend to tke working man — look at th« way in which he referred to his opponent at last elect ion as ' a common bricklayer.' * Yours, &o , .

X)f the many dirty devices that have been resorted to by the Reid Government nothing ever so scandalous has come under public notice as the conduct of the Minister for Works in connection with the present contest for The Macleay Up -?' there Australia's most bril liant statesman, the Hon. E. Barton, is seeking an entry in to the Parliamentary life of the colony, for the purpose of endeavoringto wrest from the hands of its enemies that cause ' for which he has sacrificed so much. That federation is in jeop_£U'dy is plainly palpable, ^._^jS«-5iat people of all shades of opinion wish to see Mr. Barton go to the rescue will admit of no denial. . But, with that' little-niindedness which so' oftimes seems, to actuate Mr. Reid, he is straining every nerve to bring about the defeat of federation's only recognised champion.

PERSONAL PARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 17 September 1898
PERSONAL PARS. Young Australians seem to be some what backward as regards adopting the calling of a Minister.' At the present time the Presbyterian Church, has ten scholarships going abegging. Jobn Norton is more forcible than polite at timea. He was speaking off a city balcony one night, and when he paused once to ' whet his whistle,' someone in the crowd sang out, 'What ia it, Jack ?' ' Oh,' replied the fiery journalist, ' something that would do your ewankey-drenched stomach good I' Some years ago that illustrious and now deceased statesman, Sir Henry Paxkes, was on a visit to a Southern district town, and among the several addresses of welcome presented to him, was one from the Good Templars Lodge. The old gentleman, in re sponse, said he felt proud to receive such an enthusiastic welcome from that great organisation known as the Good Templars. But he had not the distinguished honor of being a mem ber of that body. He liked his ' glass,' and took it whenever he felt so in clined...

A RECOMMENDATION. Thb Carroll-Seott Dramatic Com pony played. to a very poor house in Gundagai on Tuesday evening last, when they staged ' The Victoria Cross.' The members of the Com pany were greatly ' off colour,' and did not do justice to their reputations, being tired after their long journey from Murrumbftteman that day.
