DISRAELI AND GLADSTONE IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 12 June 1875

DISRAELI AND GLADSTONE IN PARLIAMENT. Tlio following description of tho nbovo two great politicians, tvo clip from English papers :—Mr. Disraeli— The logs aro crossed, tlio arms folded, and tlio head bent down, showing from horo one of tho most remarkable styles of doing tho human hair, that over I beheld. Tho hair is combed forward from tho crown of tho bead and from partings on either sido and brought on to the forehead, wlioro it is apparent/y pasted together in a looped carl. It looks as if somo fairy skater from an othoroal " Princo's" had beon ■ trying to mako " the figure of oight" on tho gentleman's head and had got it rather small at ono end. This> is Mr. Disraeli, as I know without being told, though I seo him now for tho I first time. Ho is wonderfully old looking with sunken cheeks and fur rowed lines about tho mouth and oyos.

STOCK AND STATION KKPOKTS Advep.tikeis Office, Friday Evening. At the (Into of our Inst report indications of coming rain were evident, and these were verified by a decided change in the weather on Saturday, when the rain came down, as the popular phrase is, in torrents. The fall continued with force on to Monday after noon, when the .sky cleared up again, and throughout the remainder of the week it lias continued dry, with the mornings ushered in by most disagreeable fogs. The fall of rain iu the surrounding districts has been con siderable, so that creeks and water courses of great and low degree have been running full to overflowing. The Yass river was at one time so high as to warrant some fears of a flood in the Murrumbidgcc, looking at the quantity of water which found its way into the stream from other sources. At one time at Gundagai the register was 27 feet, whilst here we have had it bank and bank, taking a turn, however, without oversowing, l'he reports of our exchanges g...

Thk opinions of the Press of this town ro» garding the Badbam Scholarship ,irc some* what as follows:—The Murray and Hume Times, which claims to be an organ of a high style of writing, says that parents would do far better to train up their boys to habits of industry, patience, energy, perseverance— and above all—sobriety. With these quali ties well fostered the learned editor thinks there will be greater happiness to individuals, to families, and to the nation at large. The editor does not approve too highly of classics, and least of all of seeking out for " genteel occupations" in the Civil Service. I go with the editor of the Times, for I ain satisfied there is more genuine classics in that oft»quotcd expression of Hubert Burns than may be found in tomes of Greek or Latin.
