Three Days with Tyson. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Three Days with Tyson. IB? E. A. D ? t, in 'The Queenslander.'] About five years ago I travelled north in the Arawatta. It was growing duBk as 8he left the j -wharf, all good-byes had been said, and as the supper gong was sounding most of us picked up our travelling traps and dived for our cabins. In my cabin there were two bunks ; on the lower of these lay a tall man with coat and waistcoat off, and a red handkerchief bound around his head by way of a nightcap. I bade him good-evening. He nodded, and then in silence watched mo as I unstrapped my bag and got out some things. Seeing me unfold nn/1 tliom «n f/Ka fnn V-n n I- V,o asked : ' Are you going to turn in now ?' 'No,' I replied, ' not quite ; but you look as if you had gone to camp for the night.' ' Ah !' he said. ' You're a bushman, I see. I thought so at first, but tho travelling bag and the pyjamas puzzled me a bit.' And he looked proudly down at an old worn Ruddle valise and a rug rolled up in a tanned kangaroo hide. 'Do y...

An Actress's Recitation. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 27 January 1894

Aii Actress's Recitation. Madame Modjeska, tlie actrcss, is a bright woman who doebn't heBifcate to play practical jokes in an innocent and justifiable way. She was recently, says a writer in a contemporary, a visitor at a mansion, and was asked for a brief recitation. But, though she racked her brain, nothing apropos recurrixl to her, aud finally she beggod to bo let off with a short selection in her native tongue. The suggestion was applauded, and inadame began. Although her liatnera could not understand her words, her gestures aud some thrilling fconen held them enchained until tho final syllable, when alio was overwhelmed with plaudits. As she was preparing to depart, her hostess asked her for tho title of tho selection she had given, and much to her surprise, Madame went into a small-sized paroxysm of laughter. ' I am sorry to deceive you,' she said, smiling, ' recitation hasn't any name, but my memory failed so badly that as a last resort I recited the numbers from ono to two ...

Tragedy in Fact and Fiction. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

Tragedy in Pact and Fiction. Here, by the way, is a short and true story of the day that few novelists would have dared to invent, Kentucky is a hot-headed, warm-hearted, fearless State. Picking up a Kentucky paper you feel that , compared with an English county, it is indeed a new corner of a new world, though America is beginning to have its antiquities and to talk of its ancient buildings. One of the latest incidents of Kentucky is singularly tragic, not alone in a sanguinary tense, but dramatically. One L. D. Woods, a respectable inhabitant of Cleveland, had a sister who, desiring to visit a sister in Somerset, was placed by a rail road guard in charge of the night clerk at a station which was only a mile from Somerset. While she was waiting for the train Mr. Barney Higgins, the mayor of Somerset, came upon the scene and offered to drive her to her sister's house. The night clerk thought the offer a polite and kind one, and Miss Woods went out with his worship, who took her to a...

E. W. SPARKE'S I5EP0RT. I ?feat Cattle.— Supplies at Campbell's Hill on Monday were not excessive, but with only a limited attendance of the trade sales were none too lively, and prices were without alteration. The bulk of the cattle forward were light ; in fact there are no prime heavy bullocks reaching this market at the present time.

A Boy's Remarkable Memory [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

A Boy's Remarkable Memory Barnwell county, South Carolina, possesses a negro boy, twelve years of age, who is looked on as the owner of the most remarkable memory of which the world has any record. He committed the entire book of Genesis to memory the other day in the j space of three hours, repeating every chapter after ] reading it over once, and forgetting only some half rlnznn words from the first versa to thfi lank. Some weeks ago a local politician delivered a speech of nearly two hours4 at a county meeting, and on returning home the boy was able to tell the dis course over with such accuracy that the following day the man who delivered it went to see him to take a copy of it from his mouth, having himself lost the manuscript on which it was written. This gift seems unaccompanied by any unusual degree of intelligence, the boy being a day labourer in the fields, and he appears not to take in the sense of what the camera of his mind preserves, but to repeat it after the manner o...

The Sculptor's Night Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

The Sculptor's Night Work. An anecdote about Alexander Munroe, the sculptor, is thus recorded by Mrs. Josephine Butler in the memoirs of her husband: — 'Brought up among Scotch moors, and of humble but gifted parentage, he had much of the sweet character of a child combined with true artistic genius, great quickness of intellect, and a rare enthusiasm for all that was good and noble. The task was committed to him of designing a numbar of statues, represent ing various scientific men of past times Munroe worked in our house, not infreciuentlv on the clav models of portrait busts lie was engaged with. Ho showed even then a tendency to the consumption which carried him off! so early in life. He was warned by his doctor against liis habit of working at night. He did not sufficiently regard the warning, [and hiB delicate looks made our hearts ache. We removed his lamp and all means of obtaining a light at night, in order to oblige him to retire to rest.
