The Way of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
Hie Way of Woman. Dr. George F. Shrady writes : "WomBB moat take secondary place. This IB what Nature intended her for. In every way she is less than maftf. Sbe has her owe place in life, and when she occupies it as Providence intended she is to be envied. Why she should strive to depart from it is one of the mysteries. On man's own lines she cannot become bis equal. Every time a woman enters upon thé~t*r$!ks of life which Nature intended mail should tread, she makes a move toward repressing the natural development of her sex. Look at your so-called strong-minded wemen and compare them with woman as God created her. They are not as women should be at all. Woman is man's inspiration. She is the mother bird who cares for the nest while the male bird is foraging. The difference in the relative positions of male and female is exemplified in all classes of animal life. Nature knows what is right. Her ways are wise, even if they are sometimes past mortal understanding."

HUMOROUS COLUMN. ! Why the Passengers Smiled. ? i IA short time ago, a happy couple, off for their honeymoon, desired to .have a compartment to themselves ; but tn the bustle and excitement had forgotten to have one reserved. An obliging friend, however, rushed off to the station-master and procured one ot the usual labels marked * En gaged,' which he just succeeded in sticking to the window as the train steamed out of the station. Their desire for privacy was respected, though the smiles of other passengers, who passed the door at the various stations made them rather uncomfort able. Things were brought to a crisis when the ticket-collector, having received their tickets, facetiously wished them 'mach happiness,' at the same time pointing to the label. Judge of their confusion and wrath when they found that their waggish friend had crossed out * Engaged,* and written underneath in large letters, 'Married.' i

CHAPTER L. THE FLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
CHAPTER L. I THE FLIGHT. j It was a habit of Luline to always go out upon the hill-top each after noon, towards sunset, and watch the coming of twilight One afternoon, as was her wont, she went there, and she saw a small goleta sailing into the bay. It was a tiny Craft, and con tained but two occupants-an old man, the other a youth. These came slowly up the steep path, the old man seeming to walk with difficulty. They saw her as they reached the hill-top, halted, said a few words together, and then came towards her. Both of them took off their caps as they approached, and the youth said : ' We have come to see the Benora Barton a.* ' I am she, so tell me how I can serve you.' The old man then said : ' Senora, I am poor, and this boy is all that is left to me. I come to tell you the truth, and I beg you to hear my story. If you deem it false, then send me from you.' The old man's manner impressed Luline. Something, she knew not what, forced her to remain. 11 will hear what you haye t...

COLO (Prom «Tr nr-n rrr^^-T^. MöbT Ul roe local orcuhrdists have cent nearly all cf their oranges to market, Mr. William Jones has a good many yet and so as Mr. James Metherell, bnt it is'difficult to find even one or two to eat on most of the other orchards about ¿ere. We hear that Mr. C. Blondell, Hie well known boat-bnilder of Cpper Colo, is at present building a wager-boat oat of pepper wood. It is thought by a great many people that when built it will put the general run of wager-boats clean in the shade. Mr. Tom. Turnbull has purchased a large boat for the Colo trade. On account of there being so many large melon beds about this season he did not think that the boat he is¿running at present would be sufficiently large to carry the produce therefrom. Nearly all of the local farmers have their maize planted, and some of them say that they have maize fit to plough through. We hear there is one of our residents who has not yet finished gathering his last year's crop of maize. He o...
A Con for Snake Bites. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
A Con for Snake Bites. -? ' Many experimente have recently been made with the new mushroom serum for the care of snake bites, ail of which have been successful. The wide importance of popular knowledge of the caring of snake bites, particularly in those countries where snakes are numerous can easily be" estimated. It is an ex tension of Ute principle of like caring like. For counteracting the effects of snake bites many cares have been prescribed, varying from that of drink ing enormous quantities of whisky to the application of mushroom vaccine. Bear in mind that some snake bites act more rapidly than others, and conse quently the application of the remedy should be made promptly. It is hardly necessary to state that time is gained by applying the .remedy directly to the nervous system. Experiments have been made upon various animals, among those being a rat! After, having been bitten by a snake the rat"showed all the symptoms of collapse. A strong injection of the ' serum working ...

The Dumb Kans «Toke. Jones was Bauutering about at the National Gallery, and chanced to meet, a friend, a deaf mute, who was con-' versing with a companion in sign language. Greeting Jones cordially, the deaf mute drew out a notebook and pencil, and, after a brief pencil and paper conversation, introduced his com paniou by the same means, and shortly after withdrew. Jones and the stranger discussed the pictures pleasantly for twenty minutes or more, meanwhile covering the backs of sundry envelopes and scraps of paper with their pencilling!, when a fourth character in this drama came upon the scene-a friend of Joaes's new-made acquaintance. * Hallo, George 1' said the dumb man to the new-comer, familiarly. * Row do yon like the pictures this year ?'

The Attentive Patient. A clergy man, ou hearing that there waa no preaching in the asylum in a neighbouring county, songht the oppor tunity to do some good there. At his first service he was very mach gratified to observe the attention that one of ¿he patients paid to his sermon ; and he went away and told some of his friends that he had found a very hopeful field of labour in the asylum, which had been neglected too long. Next Sunday he noticed the same intent expression on the face of the hopeful listener. Again the next Snnday the same man gave eager atten tion. In the sermon the old story had been related about Hindoo women casting their children into the Ganges. The minister «ought an opportunity after service for a personal conversation with his eager listener. The patient grasped his hand warmly, and said : * I couldn't help thinking, while you were telling the story, what a great pity it was that your mother didn't chuck you into the river when yon were a baby ?'

CHAPTER XLVÏII. * BAD NEWS FOR THE BUCCANEER. More than three rears passed away after the flight of Luline Leslie with Basil the Buccaneer, and yet no word had come to the young wife from her parents. But she was happy with her husband, and but for the memory of the past, no cloud would have ob scured her life. After his return home without his ship, Don Basila, as he was called, seemed happy in his home life, per suading himself ..that he had buried [jtï^^l^kTjyBd_w9uld live for his beautiful wife, his tfarling" child, and ! hohe should ever know that Don Basila Bartona, the Corsair, was Basil the Buccaneer.

Talking Too Much. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
Talking Too in acto. ^| Many a person talks too much, and finds when too late that silence would have been golden. The Mongols have a story on this wise : Two geese, when about to start south ward on their autumn migration, were entreated by a frog to take him with them. On the geese' expressing their willingness to do so if a means of con veyance could be devised, the frog pro duced a stalk of strong grass, got the two geese to take it, one by each end, while he clung to it by his mouth in the middle. In this manner the three were making the journey successfully, when they were noticed from below by some men who loudly expressed their admiration of the device, and wondered who had been clever enough to discover it. The frog opened his mouth to say, " It was I," lost his hold, fell to the earth, and was dashed to pieces. Do not let pride induce you to speak when safety requires you to be silent.

He had landed by night at a small seaport, sent an agent, to purchase the place and put it at once in condition, and then, until ready for his wife, he had cruised about the seas. He had avoided all tracks of vessels, and no one-not even a seaman-would have suspected the schooner of being the pirate Basil's vessel. One night be stood in towards the little harbour near his home and landed. Up to the hill whereon the villa was situated he led his bride, while his men followed with the lug gage. The servants were there, awaiting the coming of their new master, and Luline was ushered into her new home. ...
