CHAPTER III. Mr. McGinnees was beginning to see that he stood in need of a companion to take the place of the late defunct Mrs. McGinness. His suspenders, pants and socks stood sadly in need of darningnud Mr. 3lcGinness stated emphatically that, "he'd be darned it he didn't get some one to darn 'em." lie well knew that it was late in life, per. haps, to arrive at this cenclusion. This he could plainly tell by the sidernal regulating chronometer which he had lately procured at the enormous outlay of 5s. 6d., from the pawn shop of 3fo?es Shambaugh. It was precisely four o'clock thirteen minutes and ten seconds in the afternoon when he ar. rived at the conclusion intimated at the be ginning of this chavter; this being the pre cise moment that he ripped the leg of his venerable trousers and burst his last sus. pender, and likewise ripped out the horrible execeration above recorded. He would, in fact, have mado a good im. personator of ,ip Van Winkle without any further "make-up," for he...

During the eucceeding day on which he paid his visit to the convict boatman, Ward was exceedingly busy. He visited no lee than six of the out lying shepherd prisoners, and won upon them to such an extent-by the aid of a glib tongue and tobacco-that they each promised to visit Fitzimmons' hut that night, armed with the password. He even made arrange ments whereby IHendrick found himself at liberty to join the conspirators, and complete the secret circle.

Dr. Baruardo's ml o?es. THE sympathy generally entertained fr the great enterprise that has for ts bject the rescueof theshelterlesschildren of the slums of London is so widespread, that people who fully recognise that justice stands before generosity and that libera. lity begins at home, find the appealsof Dr. Barnardo on behalf of his enormous familyof depedents altogether too formid. able for the slender guards upon their pockets, and usually give as though suf. fering struck away geographical bound - aries and made the whole world akin. This of course amounts to saying that.the Sale of \Vork which took place in the grounds of the local Presbyterian Church on Tuesday was,!thanks Ito the band of generous donors, workers and buyers, in every respect a complete success.

ODDS AND ENDS. -.- A Shark's Dinner. How a Foolhardy Young Pennsylvanian Courted Destruetion. We had been fishing for sea bass in Great Eg4 Harbor, says a writer in an sichange, and had hauled in our linen to eat luncheon, when, glanc;ng over the port quarter of the yacht, I encountered the eyes of a bshrk. His enout and head were there, of course, but I scarcely saw anything but the eyes. The water was as clear as glass, and he was not more than two feet above the surface, Such eyesl They hadn't the fire cf a serpent's nor the glary.green of a mad dog's, but there was somettrag eo devilish in the way he stared at me-something so mur derous and malignant-that I yelled right out and was made the butt of ridicule. One and all, except the sailor in charge of the boat, vigorously denied that I had seen a shark. When he was appealed to, he soberly re plied: " I cannot eay,but I know that man-eaters come in here." We had with as a young man from Western Pennsylvania, a tall, raw-boned, de...

CHAPTEn II. ~cGinness came very near being lynched by the desperate citizens of Cragsville, for compelling Mrs. MCGinness to hitch the "young" mule while he always tackled the disabled 'old" one. The community at large seemed to prefer the martyrdom of Mr. MeGinness in the interest of the peculiarities of muledom, than to have eacrificed the lees discerning Mrs. MLGinners. And so, very shortly subsequently to this momentuous event. MIr. MecGinness, with the ponderous accumulations of his years of toil in the Terra Del Oro, packed in an old time wcrn carpet-.ack, care-worn and weary, de parted for the home of his youth, where he could rest from his labors and soothe the mutiplicity of his sorrows in his declining years, in reveling in the Bacchanalian plea sures afforded in imbibing Budweiser beer at the "free" and "easy" saloon, around the corner. The fleeting years fled. Alasl how soon have they fludden.

A Pitifully Thrilling Story of Blighted Hopes. A Double Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 February 1892

A Pitifully Thrlling Story of Blighted l lopes. ----- --- A Double Tragedy. I said " good night," as usual, and left Uncle Sidney Stone in the library. The hall lamp had been turned down, and was burning dimly as I shut the door behind me and started upstairs. Somehow the heavy shadows on the stair, case malde ire feel " creepy," as uncle would have said, and a strange feeling, as if I were not alone, came over me. The impression grew more distinct, and I hurried up the steps, seized with a terror al. together new to me, and one which prompted me to make each step quieter than the one preceding. I did not stop to ascertain the cause, or to question the influences impelling me in thianovel fit of cowardice, but fleow across the corridor to my rooms a, if a gaunt spectre was in full pursuit, instead of the quielnessof Piedmont gathering about me. Opening my door I rushed into the light and warmth of my apartments, with such relief coming over me that I sank into the nearest sent laugh...

The death of Mrs. McGmnoess was a ter rible blow, that is, it was a terrible for Mrs. McGinness.

TiThras Gruot ?T?iiciaus. -- -.---?o.? .---.. - The Cruel Financial Struggles of Beetho. yen, Sohubert and Mozart. ------- In the cemetery at Wabring, a suburb of Vienre&, three tombs have long lain close to. gether, inscribed with the names of Beetho. ven, Schubert and Mozart. The cemetery, says a London paper, is now to be destroyed and not long ago the remains of Beethoven were removed and reinterred with all suit. able honor in the central cemetery of the city. The same will be done with Schubert's remains, and his native country will strive by manifestations of its reverence to wipe out the memory of his neglected life and unhonored death. With Mozart it is too late even for this tardy reparation, for his monument covera no tomb and hise body can never be rescued from the pauper's grave in which, to the disgrace of civilieation, it was laid. The lives of musicians are, for the most part, sad reading; and the last days of Bee. ahoven, Schubert and Mozart may divide the p...

About Opals. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 February 1892

About Opals. The opalhas been conspienous in the ea. peretitions of nearly every age, and the first mention of the gem, either in history or tradition, invests it with a sacred character. One of the earliest traditions of the opal is found under the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, when he carried the Hebrews away into captivity. The tradition rune that the Israelites had so mingled idolatry with Judaism that the latter was almost lst in the orgies of the Assyrian priesthood, and what is known as the Babylon Talmud for a time superseded the Levitical laws and canons. During the captivity a small num ber of Jews found refuge on Mt. Lebanon, where they built a tabernacle. Beside the altar, in the tabernacle, was a golden ser. pent guarding a tablet on which lay an opal of marvellous brilliancy. The priests taught ihe worshippers that in the stone was im. prisoned the spirit of Moses, who was under. going penance for his sin in murmuring be. cause the water that lowed from the rock of MlIrah w...

CLAPTERI IV. TIt " MIGIIT H.VE MEEEN. Before the rain had ceased to rattle against the solid gables of Fernbrook, all was in readiness for the performance of Massinger's comedy, "A New Way to Pay Old Debts." Many objections had been set up and demolished before the dramatis personme were fitted to their several parts. Luckily for Ralph Warce, ho he had taken upsin himself the responsi bility of the affair, Aiton Lyndhurst proved himself an able stage director and mainager. But with all his tact the young author found himself at fault. No one could be found to perform the leading role. In this dilemma two strangers ar rived at the Rock, and were forthwith in troduced by the Master of Fernbrook to his guests. "These two gentlemen are my especial friends," he said. "On the continent of Europe and elsewhere we have sojourned together, sharing the same roof, and the same table. In the name of friendship I bid them both welcome to New Zealand." The new comers were evidently men of the wor...
