The wed ding was ono which had been postponed for a week in consequence of the death of a near relative of tho bridegroom ; but the delay had only served to add interest to the cere mony and to increase the attendance of tho friends of the happy couple. Tho church was brilliantly lighted and lavishly orna mented with flowers, and as tho organ pealed forth its wolcomo no ono dreamed that a cloud of sorrow would 60 soon overshadow tho scone. The heart of tho officiating minister was at his work, for ho had been the groom's precoptor, and affection as woll as duty promoted the words of exhortation and advice which he addressed to the young couplo- as. a preliminary to the sacrament....

? Only a I'liiittr's Dream* . ., A printer sat in liiB office cliair,, his boots were patched and his coat threadbare, and his face looked weary and worn with caro. While sadly thinking of business debt, old Morpheus slowly round hiia crept, and before he knew it he soundly slopt, and sleeping, he dreamed that ho was dead, from trouble and even toil his spirit had fled, and that not even a cow ueu loueu ior tne peacoiui rest oi his cowhide sole. As ho wandered among tho shades, that smoke and scorch in lower Hades, he shortly observed an iron door, that creakingly swung on hinges ajar, but the entrance was. closed with a red-hot bar, and Satan himself stood peoping out, waiting for travellers thereabout, and thus to tho passing printor spoke — ?.'Come in, my dear; it ihall cost you nothing, and never fear.

How to Break Horses to Harness. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 May 1879

.'How to Break Horses to Harness. I propose giving you and your readers the benefit of my experience in teaching horses to pull quietly in collar, and I may preface my remarks by telling you that I have nevor tad a failure whero I commenced upon a horse that had never-had.,a collar on bofore, and I have tried it upon all sorts of horses — wild and quiet. Tho horse should be first broken to lead, and it is also advisable to have bim broken to saddle, even if he is not intonded afterwards for aught but draught work, as it familiarises the animal with man, and uses him to the constraint of straps and I buckles. The first step in tho special educa tion for collar-is to teach a horse to drive in front of you, with long reins, but without winkers ; next accustom him to the winkers, and then tho remainder of tho usual draught harness, and do nothing further till he will allow tho harness to be put on and off with out fright or flinching. This having been done,, drive him .about with the lm...

MISCELLANEOUS. How Sir Walter Raleigh Won a Wager. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 May 1879

OTSCJEliIiA3¥EOUS. HOtv Sir Walter Raleigh Won a Wager. Havtjtg weighed out a sufficient quantity of tobacco to fill his pipe, he came into the Queen's presence, and as tho wroatlis o^ smoke curled up, he offered to bet that he could tel! their weight. Elizabeth accepted the bet, and Sir 'Walter quietly finished his pipe ; then, having shaken out the ashes he ?weighed them, and substracting tho weight of the ashesfrom that of the tobacco origin ally put in the pipe, he found the weight of the smoke. Elizabeth paid the wager, and thus learned that matter is indestructible. The indestructibility of matter is forcibly brought to the mind of the chemist, who ?witnesses every day in his dealings with matter such marvellous transformations, dis appearances, and reappearances. Such changes are constantly going on in the oper ations of nature. One body perishes, and of tho material that composed it another is formed. Our own frames may contain par ticles that were in the bodies of Adam, Noa...
