CORRESPONDENCE. fWe do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed hy oar corres pondents.] THAT WATER TROUBLE. To the Editer of the ADVOCATE. DEAK SIR,-Kindly allow me space in your valuable journal to say a few words in connection with some re marks that were passed at a meeting of the Union Delegates held last week, when the matter of disqualify ing the Park Yilla wicket came on for discussion. If such remarks are allowed to pass -unchallenged, I, as a cricketer, think that the hospitality hitherto Bhown to cricketers through out the district will lack much of its warmness. I refer to the remarks made by the College Delegate, when he stated he had gone to Park Yilla, and couldn't get a drink of water for love or money. Now, BÛT, I have been to Park Viüa wicket every season sincera club was formed there, and have always found plenty of water, and have always been treated most hospitably, not only by the members of the Park Yilla team, but also by the residents a...

RETURNED TO BE HUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
RETURNED TO^ BE KUNU, In tile Choctaw Indian nation there is no jail in which to confine convicted murderers, and therefore they are allowed to ran at huge, on parole to be present on the day appointed for their hanging. Say* a gentleman in the Washington " Star : Whee I first went to tile Indian Territory I settled ia the Choctaw nation, and hearing that a certain Indian was an excellent hand otf tb» ranche, I bunted him np and asked him if he would work for me. " I will work un tal Hie twentieth of nexl month." he said. *' Why not longer ? " I inquired. " I am to be hanged the twenty-first," was j bis reply, io an unconcerned way. j I hired him, and upon inquiry learned that what he said was true. But one man has ever failed to return for hanging after he has been j sentenced, and my Indian did not prove an ! exception to the rule. On the day before the execution was to take place he left as calmly as though going on a visit, and the hanging took place at the time appointed. Notwi...

(From our own Coptspondents). A lad, whose name is unknown to the writer, had the misfortune to fall from his horse opposite the local post office one day last wefek. Luckily he escaped from any serions injury. Mr. Eemxnington h^^at îîis orchard on the Vine BoadV almost promising crop of grapes, whioh^escaped the late frosts, owing to the vineyard occupy ing a sheltered, portion. In fact, when the crop is matured, he will have the finest i^pes for many miles around the district. A niece of Mrs. Wjieaton's, I am sorry to report, had a severe fit a short time ago.

Always the Bicycle. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
! Alwav* «he Bierde. j There seems to be no limit to the uses of the bicycle. In the United States they ride to church on their bicycles, and attend funerals on them. An elope ment on bicycles has also occurred, and it has been pointed out that the famous picture of the cavalier anxiously wait ing at the castle door for bis lady-love to appear and mount the palfrey which is to bear them both from, tyrannical guardians cannot at all compare with the picture of the "pneumatic steed with its doubled-up lovers pedalling away to freedom !" Romance, it is considered, may as well take a back seat till the bícyclé boom is past-if it ever will be past. v
SUMMARY PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
SUMMARY PROCEEDINGS. When Prince Metternich was s yoong saan he was Austrian Ambassador to the Court of France. The Persian Ambassador at that time was an obstinate, impulsive persos), orer whom no one had mock influence except Metternich, for whom he took a strong lilriag ODS morning the Persian doctor catered Metternichs apartments hastily, and begged him to go and make the Ambassador hear reason. The doctor had fon sd the Persian's serrants armed with naked swords, and about to eut off tho head of one of their fellows by their master's orders. The doctor told the Ambassador that such a proceeding was contrary toFreach law, that the Emperor would be angry, that he would get himself into trouble ; but the Persian was im placable. He said that the man belonged to bim, and deserved death, and that if he chose to cut off the caitiff's head it was his private affair. Finding his on appeals of ño avail, the doctor had recourse, to Metternich. Metternich hastened to the Persian, and with...
Right and Left Hand. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
I Righi and fjctt Hand. It is a strange fact that the right hand, which is more sensible to the touch than the left, is less sensible than the latter to the effect of heat or cold, if yon dip both hands simultaneously into two bowls of water of equal tem perature, the left will experience the higher sensation of heat, and this will happen even if the thermometer shows that the water-in the left bowl is iu reality a trifle colder than the water in the right one. The reverse happens in the case of persons who are left handed. -

Position in Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
Politlón in Sleep. j , The question is often asked-Shall we sleep on the right or left side ? The hygienist sleeps on a hair mattress with a bair pillow and an open window, and he sleeps on his right or left side as is most agreeable ; generally he changes from one side to the other during the night, often in his sleep, without waking. This change : is advantageous, for it relieves the pressure on one iside and gives a chance for the blood to flow more evenly in different parts of the body. It also relieves the internal organs of too long-continued pressure in one way. Sleeping on the back is not to be advised ; sleeping on the face is not objectionable if not continuous. Sleeping with the mouth wide open is wrong. It makes no difference in sleep whether the head points to the north, south, east, or west.
COCK-CROWING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
COCK-CROWING EXTRAORDINARY. Suw&roff, Kassia's great military commander, was a little man, insignificant in everything but that intangible power of mind and character with which physical strength is never to be compared. He had been sickly in his youth, but became bardy ander the stimulus of cold bathing and the benefits of a plain diet. Buckets of cold water were thrown over him in the morning, and bis table was served with fare which guests would fain have refused, bat dared not, lest be should think them effeminate. He despised dress, and delighted hi drilling his men ia bis shirt sleeves, sometimes with his stockings literally ** down at the neel." But bis hardihood of life and action had its t Sect ea the men be commanded. He was «^tOast-^aj» aud about hy -laidoigbt. mod wonid salute the first soldier whom he saw moving with a piercing cock-crow, in commendation of bis early risine.

Business Aphorisms. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
RiiiiineMH Aphorism*. Carlyle wasn't a man of business, but he would have made a success of it had he tried it. In his writings one finds -these iines of solid business truth : A laugh is worth a hundred groans in any market. Have a smile for all, a pleasant word for everybody. To suc ceed, work hard, earnestly, and inces santly. All honest men will bear watch ing. It is the rascals who cannot stand it Better have the window empty than filled with unseasonable and un attractive goods. When you hang a sign outside your place of business, let it be original in design and of good quality. Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness ; altogether past calcula tion its power of endurance. Efforts to be permanently useful must be uni formly joyous, a spirit of sunshine, graceful from very gladness, beautiful because bright The decline of Italian shipping is noted with regret especially in Southern Italy. The populous port of Naples counts in the list of the Italian mercantile navy only one st...
Use of Captive Balloons at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
I Use of Captive Balloons at Sea. j An expedition was recently sent out from St Petersburg to search by the"aid of a captive balloon for the ill-fated Rus sian warship Rusalka, which foundered with all hands in the Gulf of Finland. A transport was fitted up to facilitate the ascent of the balloon, and when at its proper height it was towed for several weeks over an area supposed to compass- the vessel. The balloon had a capacity of 20,000 cubic feet, and ascended to altitudes varying from 656ft to 1443ft With a head wind it could be towed at the rate of 2% knots' per hour, while with a favourable wind 6% knots per hour were attained. It was found that objects at the bottom of the sea were more readily discernible with the naked eye than with" glasses. At a height of 1300ft, with a favourable light, rock and sand banks were clearly defined at depths varying from 19ft to 40ft down in the sea. Observations are more easily carried on at sea from a captive balloon because the air current...
Electricity in saving Life. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
Electricity in saving Ole. The third report of the Royal Com mission on electrical communication with lighthouses and light-vessels has recently been published, and it gives some interesting particulars regarding this very important addition to our means of saving life at sea. The recom mendations of former reports have been carried out, and now an additional list of stations is named which it is sug gested should be brought into -circuit with the telegraphic system of the country. The system of communica tion which has been adopted with regard to light-ships is that known as the "Sunk" system, a name derived from the first light-ship with which a cable was experimentally connected nine years ago. This is the ¡»est method yet de vised, for the mechanical arrangements permit of the vessel swinging round with the tide without injury to the line of communication, and also allow the telephone to be employed, which last is a most valuable provision. But the commissioners suggest that exp...
Shoplifting and Kleptomaniace. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 October 1899
Shoplifting ana Kleptomaniac*. The recent great increase in the num ber of cases of shoplifting, not only in London and the provinces, but in Paris, has led the representative of an evening paper to interview Dr. Forbes Winslow upon the subject of kleptomaniacs and their methods, in view of the fact that that particular form of insanity is so frequently put forward in defence of the delinquents when caught. Klepto mania, Dr. Winslow states, is far more common among women than men, though the schoolboy is often by no means exempt from its clutches. Klep tomaniacs generally move in good society, and quite as often have ample means to procure the articles they en deavour to secure without payment, and of which, it may be added, they may already possess an ample supply ; for instance, one woman who came under Dr. Winslow's notice stole every um brella she could lay her hands on, not withstanding the fact that she had scores at home which she never used. The kleptomaniac. Dr. Forbes Wins...
