THE LINE OF HEART, [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

THE LINE OF HEART, « Do you-believe it ?" *' Ï don't know," he answered, doubtfully, " I never had opportunity of judging." " Then I'll read your hand." " What, you ?" " Tea, really," she replied, nodding her pretty head. '* I've been studying it. Books j and all that sort of thing, you know. Come over by the light." He rose and followed her to the corner, where a softly shaded lamp diffused a mellow glow. Outside the wind was howling bitterly but an old-fashioned wood fire blazed com fortably in an old-fashioned grate, for this was an old-fashioned house. He had never noticed how.round and white her arms were until the loose sleeve fell back when she took his hand. The touch of her cool fingers thrilled him. ** I thought so," she began, " you are a dreamer. ahd you do not want the world to find it out. It's been cather a hard life in some ways-you haven't always had all that you wanted. He shaded his eyes with his other hand, and rested his elbow on the table. " Safe observation," ...

ON BUSINESS OF HIS OWN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

ON BUSINESS OF HIS OWN. " While following the life of the gentle shepherd on the plains of Montana a couple of years ago, 1 used," says «tn Americn writer, " to watch the wolves a great deal while tending the sheep, and though I usually had my good rifle in my hand, X once had the opportunity of facing a wolf empty handed, and I don't knott which was the worse scared, lt happened thus: " The sheep had bunched during the heat of the day upon one slope of a little valley, and I occupied the opposite slope, the better to see that they came to no harm, and since I knew that they would not move for hours, I was taking a bit of a doze, now and then opening my eyes wide enough to see my sheep and then dropping off again with my face on my arms, stretched out on the hot rock. Suddenly when I looked up in a dazed condition, I became aware that a very large wolf was coming right at me, not sixty yards away, his red tongue lolling out, and his i yellow summer coat reminding me of a hyena j at ...

An Unfortunate Mistake. In a little village in Kent, it was the custom on Saturday afternoons for the labonrera and tradesmen to meet together on the common and have a good game of cricket. At one time, when the game was first started, a grey-headed old rustic fielded a ball very well, but, to everyone's surprise, he threw it with great force at tbe batsman as he was half way across the pitch, and knocked him senseless. The umpire, in a great rage, yelled : ' Man, you are not allowed to do that.' 4 B'aint it the same as rounders, thin T was the quick rejoinder of the astonished villager.

CURES FOR INSOMNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

CURES FOR INSOMNIA. One of the gastronomic magazines bas an article giving some comprehensive direc tions regarding the eure of sleeplessness. It ÍB sensible in admitting the complexity of a case of insomnia and of the doubts'often connected with its origin. A man may apply all his own knowledge and that of his medical adviser,. and yet be unable for a I time to overcome the tendency of the mind to drift along ia helpless consciousness through the long^fiours of the night. But there must be a cause for this perverseness and a remedy for it, though the core may not be found without a persevering quest. The modern man needs a full share of sleep. He works hard with brain and nerves,, and is apt to play as hard as he works. To lie in bed with the wheels of thought running on waste material is a sort of torture as well as a danger to health. Napoleon's faculty of < going to sleep on the instant «as one of the greatest advantages he had over the com manders on the other side. ...

A MILLIONAIRE'S FREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

A MILLIONAIRES FREAK. M. Blanc, the founder of the Casino at Monte Carlo-which means really Monte Carlo itself-was very eccentric If he had ever been young there is no record of the fact, for he is always described a little old gentleman, clad in a long coat, and walking with the aid of a yellow cane, without which he was never seen during his waking hours. Though enormously wealthy he was exces sively thrifty in trifling matters, and would haggle like au old clothes man to save a franc on articles for his personal use, though he thought nothing of expending thousands of francs in beautifying the Casino and the miniature city. He was never known ta play at the tables, excepting on one occasion, and then it was a somewhat costly experience. While on a visit to Wiesbaden Casino with Mme. Blanc, he was in the habit of accom panying her on a morning stroll each day. During one of these walks madame com plained of the heat of the sun, and requested her husband to buy her a parasol.

THE SABLE HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

THE SABLE HUNTER It ie to be wondered whether the elegant lady wrapped so snugly in her winter furs gives a thought, even a passing one, to the subject as to where that magnificent sable skin which she wears around her neck origi nally came from. Up in the great watershed dividing Siberia and Mongolia lives a peculiar race of people half Chinese, half Thibetans. Few Europe ans have «ver seen them; in fact, with the exception of one or two enterprising explor ers or geographical enthusiasts who have crossed the Altai range, European eyes have never gazed upon the aboriginal Syots of the Northern Mongolia. Yet these peculiarly clad, peculiarly look ing' people supply a goodly quantity of the finest sables to the fur markets of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris, and London. Maybe that the very sable skin around my lady's neck was once the sport of some half clad nomad, and was probably shot with a gun made from a piece of gas pipe plugged up at one end, and the bullets formed of small ston...

Is Consumption Hereditary? [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899

is ConsnmptioD Hereditary? There is lio doctrine more firmly ? impresa ed on the mind of the average director of a life assurance company j than ' the hereditary transmission of consumption. Yet, like other cherished beliefs this doctrine is beiug attacked on all aides, and if it is to remain as one of the fondamental principles of life assurance, fresh statistics must, the " British Medical Journal " thinks, be collected ao aa to confute the statement« confidently made by its opponents. The discovery of the tubercle bacillus and confirmation of the infectious nature of consumption has thrown quite a new light on some of the questions connected with the transmission of thia disease. Dr. T. O. Edwards has treated thia question with much force and lucidity in a paper entitled, " Facts, not Theories, in regard to Consomption from an Insurance Standpoint."
