A SEASONABLE RETORT [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 18 October 1884

A SEASONABLE RETORT When the Mahdi, Mohammed Ahmed, made his triumphant entry, into El Obeid, he called on . the , Christians to change their religion and acknowledge him as the Messiah whose coming was foretold in holy writ. One of the French Sisters of Mercy, stepping forward, replied that it was said in the Bible that the Messiah would make himself known bv his miracles, and he would remove all doubts as to his Identity by kindly per forming one for tho benefit of herself and her colleagues. The Mahdi answered that her request was perfectly reasonable, but that the time for the working of mira cles had not yet come. Meanwhile, howr ever, he would take the missionaries un der his protection, with a view to pre paring them for conversion pending the day when he .would dazzle them all by his exploits. The courageous nun, in all .? probability, saved herself and her fellow Christians by this clever reply, which placed Mohammed Ahmed in an awk ward dilemma, — iSc-ir York Independent,<...

MARIE ANTOINETTE'S LAST WORK. When Marie Antoinette was impriso ned in the Conciergerie she was forbid den amusements of any description, and she is said to have devoted herself to needlework. As she was led forth to execution it is stated that she dropped a piece of needlework. An officer in charge picked it. up.

'u w ' 'Opinions may differ hpbii the personal appeatnnce ofSarah Bernhardt, as they do in all bthernihtter*, but thero can be very little doubt tlmfher own opinioa on the point is, to say the least of it, flnt lering.

Notes of the Week. Manly, ar ',bur. village,' as it is often called, has distinguished itself in many ways lately. Tliore is one way however in which it appears in n pleasing aspect namely, its flower shows held annually with financial success. Visitors ? pour into '?.??'? our village ' on those occasions' and thus the place becomes -better known. Again, St. Fetors had its flower show the other day for a first first time. That was a success also; ?Paddington also, or rather the Eastern Suburbs, can annually hold a fine floral show. But why cannot Newtown, Staumore, En more and Campordown, unite in holding an annual show? Why should not Bnlniain and Lcichhardt also unite for a like purpose ? Marrickville and the Glebe mi^lit bold separate shows. Putting aside other considera tions, is there a. more -refining, a more humanising, occupation than the cul ture of flowers? ??????'- After' a service of ten years, Mr, Charles Hellmrich, Council Clerk for the Borough of Paddington, is about ...
