Plaguey Pars. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 9 June 1900

Plaguey Pars. Ten out of eleven Ohinamen attacked have died of plague. The Citizens Vigilance Com mittee objects to the smell of the hide-salting rooms near Circular Quay. Under instructions, a professional rat-burner is being sent up to Wei-t Maitland to Bhow the local in cinerators how it is done ! ! ! The plague outbreak has been used as a means of extending and using political patronage — the matter not being provided for by the Public Service Act. Dr. Ashburton Thompson is # in clined to discontinue inoculation, it is so poorly taken advantage of and so expensive. Only ten or eleven turn up per diem at present On Saturday last there were six cases of plague, a confirmation of our statement that this disease was not quitting us but had merely postponed operations on account of tho inclemency of the wefythey. On Monday last there were 15 plague-stricken in quarantine. Seven were of the softer sex. Of the eight men and boys, one was a Chinaman. They almost invariably succumb to th...

Political Patter. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 9 June 1900

Political Patter. Barton said that Australia's choice was ' the bowl or the dagger ?' on her behalf, he chose ' the flowing bowl.' I It may almost be reckoned a cer tainty that the slippery Slattery will be the new vice-President of the Executive Council. Sir George Dibbs described Mr. 1 Reid's last squad of Upper House appointments as a multy lot. What does he think of Lyne's batch ? The new M's.L.O. consist of 10 Protectionists, 1 Freetrader, and 1 Labor man. Seventy-five per cent, of them will vote Conservative every time. They sty now that Hassall's appointment to Lands was only temporary and that he had the Commercial Agency in his 'kick' from the start. The clever ones say that Crick did not get Lands at first because they wanted to see if he'd harvested all his wild oats. We still think that Crick held off the Lands portfolio because of the the good practice he has in the court of that department. By the way, it is a scandal the way that temporary judges, P.M's,, and S.M's. b...

Corn Cobs. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 9 June 1900

Corn Cobs. Chicory, they say, is growing j well in the chill Blayney district. / According to the Warren Herald , a mixture of fat and 3trychnine is the best bait for crows. A Back Creek man earned in one day £9, representing 580 crows, with this bait. A Grafton youth, just back from Sydney, remarked : ' Be cripes, you get a stiff neck there looking up at the houses.' Dr. Talmage says that at Arma geddon the forces of evil will come in drumming with human bones on beer barrels to the tune of the Dead March. Two men had a dispute as to whether coal was a vegetable or a mineral. They asked a parson who said both were right for ' coal was of vegetable origin and mineral ex extraction.'

Gore and Glory. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 9 June 1900

Gore and Glory. Courage is cheap — it may be bought for one shilling a day. — John Bright. The Boers must have been very hardly pressed when they aban doned Johannesburg, the source of their funds. Evidently the yarns were incorrect so widely circulated about the manner in which Johannesburg was fortified. Had Johannesburg been fortified and provisioned as was said it is improbable that it would have been so easily taken. According to Rooinek, prior to the war the well-to-do population of Johannesburg was composed mostly of Jews. Nuff sed. America has a far worse job in the Phillipines than Britain has in South Africa She has 60,000 soldiers there to 8,000,000 Filipinos. Says Lord Salisbury : ' We seek no goldfields. We seek no territory.' Of course not — 'we' only grab them with both hooked hands and hold on, Melbourne's Mafeking drunk was more virulent than Sydney's for it only lasted one day to our eight days.

As each contingent, reeking with beer and blasphemy, sailed from our shores to poison the Pacific for a time withe thheavings of its stale orgies,...

THE FATE OF FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 16 June 1900

THE FATE OF FAILURE. Laugh, and the world laughs with you; vyeep, and you wesp alone ; This ^ grand old earth must borrow its mirth, It has trouble enough of its own. Sing, and the hills will answer ; Sigh, it is lost in the air ; The echoes bound to a joyful sound, But shrink from voicing care. Be glad, and your friends are many; Be sad, and you lose them all ; There are none to decline your necfared wine, But alone you must drink life's gall. There is room in the halls of pleasure Eor a long and lordly train, But one by one we must all file on Through the narrow isles of pain. Feast, and your halls are crowded ; Fast, and the world goes by ; Succeed and give, 'twill help you live, But no one can help you die. Rejoice, and men will seek you ; Grieve, and they turn and go ; They want full measure of all your pleasure, But they do not want, your woe. — Col. John A. Joyce.

Pages From the Diary of an Ex-Warder. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 16 June 1900

Pages From the Diary 'of an Ex-Warder, __ i ' No 333 ' awoke to the ex traordinary sensation of lying on a spring mattress ; he gently moved himself to make sure, and then held his eyes the faster closed lest the waking dream should leave him. For eighteen months a stiff hammock, slung from wall to wall of his cell, had been his resting place ; for twice eighteen months more he could expect nothing else. No wonder he was most anxious to keep the delusion as long as might be. After a little, he stretched out a hand and ventured to feel. Sure enough, he lay in a bed. He opened a tentative eye and not only saw a bed-foot, but within ten feet of it a cheery fire in a grate. Save on the rare occasions when his turn came in the cook-house or engine room, ' 333 ' had not seen a fire for many a day. Just then a cheery voice addressed him, 'Well, old chap, you're coming round,' and recognising the uniform of the hospital attendant, ' 333' discovered where he was. In a moment it all come back...

THE DISAPPOINTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 16 June 1900

THE DISAPPOINTED. There are songs enough for the hero Who stands on the heights of fame, I sing for the disappointed — For those who missed their aim. I sing with a cheerful cadence, For one who toils in the dark, And knows that his last, best arrow Has bounded back from the mark. I sing for the breathless runner, ' The eager, anxious soul, Who falls in the race exhausted, -?% Almost in sight of the goal ; ^ For the hearts that break in silence, With a sorrow all unknown — ^ f* For those who need companions, «- Yet walk their way alone. ''I There are songs enough for the lovers yi Who share love's tender pain, yji I sing for the one whose passion Is given, and given in vain ; For those whose spirit comrades Have missed them on the way, I sing with heart o'erflowing This minor strain to-day. — Ella Wheeler Wilcox, '?$ -5 ?--a

Songs of the Downtrodden. FOR THOSE WHO FAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 16 June 1900

Songs of the Down trodden* FOR THOSE WHO FAIL. 'All honor to him who shall win the prize,' The world has cried for a thou ? sand years ; But to him who tries, and falls, and dies, I give great honor and glory and tears. Give glory and honor and pitiful tears To all who fail in their deeds sublime, Their ghosts are many in the van of years, They were born in Time in advance of Time. Oh, great is the hero who wins a name, But greater, many and many a time, Some pale-faced fellow who dies shame, ' And lets God finish the thought - sublime. And great is the man with a sword undrawn, And good is the man who refrains from wine ; But the man who fails and yet Btill fights on, - Lo! he is the twin- born brother of mine. — Joaquin Miller. ? - X? - ?
