Its you he's mad about, lie told me so, and asked me' ? But here Miss Cumming paused in some confusion as Ethel burst out laughing. ' Come,' she cried, ' Confess, Elise, that you are his ambassador.' ' Well, I will,' answered Elise with some desperation. ?? I pity the young fel low. He is very good ueartea, rm sure. Look how he always smiles when he talks of his mother And then, as I said before, he's very rich and very soft. Besides, poor young man, he is consumptive, and can't live long, and you know its something to be a rich widow. With your beauty, Ethel, and L3000 a year, you might win a coronet.' And Miss Cumming grew enthusiastic and eloquent as she conjured up this glowing picture, clapped her soft white hands together in a sort of ecstacy. Still Ethel watched her curiously. She had never so fathomed...

The Rule of Islam. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898
Tlie Rule of Islam. ' What Is the result ?' asks a writer in the ' Quarterly Review.' ' Barbar ism, oppression, lawlessness, corruption, cruelly, ignorance, decadence have set tled like an Inexorable blight on all the lands of Islam. There is no exception ; not a single bright spot anywhere ; no green oasis in all that wilderness of sav ag-? desolation. And those lands were once fertile, populous, and flourishing ; homes of the arts, of science, and of literature.' Persia, Central Asia, Asia Minor, Ar menia, it is shown, were fruitful, pros perous, and civilised before they were overun by Islam. We know what they are now. ' Under Islam,' continues the writer, 'there is no such thing as na tionality. The social and political bond is neither race nor language, nor country; it is religion. There is only cne Mussul man State — Dar-al-lslam, or the Ma htpmedan World. Islam Ignores all other distinctions. . . .

Marriage a la Mode in Belgium. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898
Marriage a la Mode in Belgium. There is nothing new under the sun, and the New Woman and the New Era have long ago been anticipated in the neighbourhood of Ghent. Here, among the working classes, the triumph of woman has already taken place. Women take the lead in all things ; they are the protectors, not the protected, the pro posers, not the proposed to. The crux lies in their financial independence. As a rule, the women are richer than the men. for. although they do not earn so much, they make their money go further. They very rarely marry young, and they have a fancy for choosing husbands for themselves. Many a Belgian girl, who goes straight from school to a fac tory, has amassed quite a tidy little dot by the time- she Is 30. She then begins to look around her male acquaintances. She selects the one she thinks most .suit able, and offers to marry him. He may refuse, but he rarely does bo ; for he has gfJierally teen chosen on account of his youth and pliability. A glance at th...

The Closing Year. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 1 January 1898
The Closing Year. 'The year which is drawing to a close as we write these lines, has been a memorable one in the history of the empire. The outburst of loyal feeling which attended the celebration of the record rei^n of Queen Victoria, has without doubt been the event of the year. To add prestige to this great celebration, the Premiers of the whole of the Australian colonies were called away to London, and 1897 will be a red leuer year on tnis account atone. A retrospect of the year, now coming i ';- 1 may not be unprofitable- food for 1 !f , :-.t thought.

Concert. A oon;prt was given iu the. Oddfel lows' Hall 011 Boxiug night (Monday) by Mr. F. Knight, organist of St. Paul's Ohuroh, assisted by several pu pils, and lady and gentleman ama teurs. There was a yery fair attend ance, although thK hall was not nearly full, bu* then it must be rrmeniberi'd that the Oddfellows' Hall is consider ably larger than the School of Arts which has done service for so many years, and the audience present on Mouday evenina, if put in the School of Arts, would have represented a full house. This is the first musical entertain ment that haa been held in the npw hall, and we much regret to find that- i the ncouEtic properties of the buildiug I are far from being whet they sbouH be.
