Correspondence. RELIGION! WHAT IS IT? To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

Correspondence. RELIGION ! WHAT IS IT? To the Editor of the "Watchman." Sir,—The frequent utterances of the now absent Cardinal, and the Co-adjutor Bishop re the piety and charity of the adherents of the Soman Catholic faith, have naturally enough, led me to It ok for some exhibition of those virtues from men in the foremost ranks of the Church. At the Hibernian gathering on St. Patrick's Day no man was. more applauded than Mr. Crick: he takes a high position in the Church " for services rendered,"' and yet some one whispered in my ear that he was being burned in effigy in several of the country towns. Well, if he be a man of great piety that can be under stood. What I; want to know is: "What is the character of the man bo loudly acclaimed at the aforesaid gathering. Is he a fair representa tive of the piety and charity of hi? Church ? Ib he a leader ol men in all that - makes for righteousness? In prosecuting my enquiry I Tegret that Mr. Crick's speech at the gathering does not nea...

PRIZE COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

PRIZE COMPETITION. I ! Come and let us look at it. It is a very ugly word, One which should make us shudder whenever it is heard; It may not .always be wicked, but itmuBtbe always bad, And speaks of sin and suffering enough ta make one sad. .They tell us it's a compound word, and that is : ; very true, And then they decompose it, which they are - " freelib do; But why of the 12 letters should they take off first three, And leave the 9 remaining ones as sad as they ', con be. For: though they seem to make it less, in fact, : they make it more, And the brute creation now comes in, which was not so.before. Let us see if we can't mend it. It is possible we may If only we divide-it in Bome other fashioned way. Suppose instead of 3 and 9 we. make it .4 and 8, You will say it makes no difference, at least not very great. But only see the consequence, that's all that need be done, To change a mass of misery to unmitigated fun! To ward off Bwords and pistols, revolvers, bowie knives; And all...

Lodge Meetings. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

Lodge Meetings. The band of LodgeNo. 53 held a harbor excur sion on Tuesday night. The night being fine, the beauties of Middle Harbour and the Parra jnatta River were seen to great advantage, and the noble outlines of Port Jackson, Been by the light of the moon, realized the poet's lines:— The moon lovely, from her clouded veil - Soft gliding, lifts her silvery lamp on high, Lit up the landscape all sublime. The band,' under the direction of Bandmaster Bro.Lane, played in fine style various selections. Musical items were contributed by Bros. Hall, Hayton, Sefcoe, Hood, Austin, and S. Jones, Messrs. L. J.

Maliuki. AN INCIDENT OF LIFE IN THE KING COUNTRY, NEW ZEALAND. By Glaxcb MacLean*. (All rights reserved.) CHAPTER 3X ' The'morning opened bright and clear,'and I •was up and out in time to 6ee the mist rolling in great -white clouds in the depths of the gullies amongst the hills, as if in trouble at its approaching dissolution, or stretched like a' gossamer web along the tree tops away up on the hillsides and vanishing like a dream before the omnipotent warmth' of the sun's morning rajs.

The Protestant Watchtower. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

I : ■ — r* The Protestant WatclitQwer. St. Patrick's Day passed off very quietly in the Newcastle district. Owing to the action of members of the A.P.D.A., stirring up the gene ral public and'the merchants of Sydney, there was no proclamation of a general holiday for this part of the State, and it is to be hoped that the attempt of the R. C members of the Minis try to introduce this sectarian holiday will open the eyes of all Protestauts to the encroachments and presumption of the Papacy in this fair land. Volunteers attending Popish Services— Special service was held in the Hamilton R. G. Church on Sunday ICth, when men from the Scotch, Irish, and other corps attended, the Protestants (?) attending * out o;f sympathy for the corps whose patron sunt is St. Patrick.

Woman's Column. ["Martha" will be glad to receive and answer any communications addressed to her, care of the Editor 35 Queen Victoria Markets, York Street.] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

' Woman's Column. [*' lTartha"'Will be glad to receive and answer any com . muni cations addressed- to ber, care of the Editor 1 35 Queen "Victoria Markets, York Street.] Dear Doecas,— . ; The rage for tlie game of .ping-pong, in Sydney, is being followed by tlie ping-pong costume, but it is really nonsense to have any frock for it It does not answer to lrnve full or long lace ruffles if the game is being played in the evening, but any dress that allows free movement of ..the arms will answer well. Trains should not be worn, as they get in the way of the players. I have been asked if X like the game; but as I have;never placed it, I cannot say. I dislike the noise of it very much; and, in common with many others in this country, it is being overdone, And that brings me to that poem of Kipling's u The Islanders," which gave so much offence, both here and in England; but a little reflection would prove to anyone who was endowed with common-sense that it was the abuse of sport which ho...

The Literary Lounger. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

The Literary Lounger. It. is just as well that every side of .the war in South Africa should the-brought to light. The. very feminine epistles published in book form under the title of "On the_Warpath," written by Mrs. J. D. Leather-Culley, will help to make clear how the nursing of work was done for the British on the veldt, and what that work was like. The letters cannot be better described, from one point of view, than bv saving they are English. . Furthermore, a | good deal is said in them as to how Mrs. j Leaiher-Culley dined and how size didn't dine, under conditions of both the conventional and unconventional order. She was under fire on various occasions in the course of her nursing and comfort distributing1 experiences, and she actually managed to get photographed whilst in that and.other interesting^ situations. The photographs are introduced in the hook, and everybody knows "the apparatus can't lie." ' Biographies are always interesting,- and it is about time that-Lord Ro...

Esther Devotion. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

Esther Devotion. An address delivered by Mr. Arthur Wilson at th. Fellowship Association, Scoffs Church, Sun day, Mareh 16,1901. The wicked plotteth against the just, .and gnasheth upon him -with ms teeth. * The Lord shall laugh at him; for he seeth that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright con versation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken (Ps. 37, 12-15) is the observation of the Psalmist and a practical fulfilment of the promise is in the s to it before us this morning. In the foregoing books of Ezou and Nehemiah we are told how God in His providence watched over and cared for the Jews who had returned to their own land out of captivity, and what great acts were wrought on their behalf. There were many, however, who did not go thither for various reasons, doubtless worthy or unworthy, and these were the objects of God's care, as we...

For Sunday Afternoon. EASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

•For Sunday Afternoon. Ab the return of the Easter season brings to our zremoiy, more especially, tlie death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ than tlie ordinary weekly Sabbath remembrance of that great evdnt, if is opportune for us to make a few remarks on the subject. Tlie death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ are the key stones of Christianity. The Old Testa ment held forth the Saviour of. tlio world by types and ceremonies, shadowing this humilia tion and exaltation, which became an absolute process in this great work of redemption. From the consequences of the fall of the first parents of the human race, in which all man kind were involved, there was no possible escape which men or angels could devise. Hence it remained for the infinite wisdom of God alone to plan deliverance for us. If a ransom could be found for man that would adequately satisfy the requirements of Divine justice, for the transgression of God's hoty and righteous law, then he should go free,...

Ritualism in a Sydney Anglican Church. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

Ritualism in a Sydney Anglican .Church. After ail absence from Sydney of many years I attended a Church of England service in the church (where I had been a worshipper in my youth) and was surprised to see a Roman Catholic altar, dressed in purple, and having thereon a cross and eight candlesticks, besides two huge candlesticks on the floor, while a sanctuary lauip, before the altarand suspended from the coiling was dimly burning. Presently a boy vested in cassock and surplice carrying a lighted taper on a br&BS rod, comes froih the vestry, and on approaching the altar bows down almost to the ground; he then lights the candles on the right, bows again, lights those on the loft, and botvs again. The worshippers arriving bow themselves before the altar, and make the sign of the cross on their breast. A man now comes from the vestry. He wears a red cassock and embroidered surplice. He likewise bows and takes a brass processional cross from a bracket, and raising it aloft thrice...

Courting Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 29 March 1902

Courting Disaster. At the moment when Lord Denbigh, the Roman Catholic Earl, whose boast it once was that he was a Roman Catholic first and an Englishman after, was presenting to the Pope, the autograph letter of the King of Protestant England congratulating Leo on his Sacerdotal Jubilee, Lord Mctlieun was a captive in the in the hands of the Boers. - The envoy extra ordinary of King Edward was deputed to act as an indirect channel of communication with that Bishop of Rome of whom Article of Religion No. 37 says that he "hath no juris diction in this realm of England " and in so doing the King's advisers were sailing so close to the wind as to morally infringe upon the strict injunctions of the Coronation Oath. Between the Boer victory and this tampering with the King's great Protestant declaration^ there is the most intimate connection. He who is the friend of the Pope becomes the enemy of; God, and history records not only that the recipient of the Pope's blessing inevitably suffe...

For {Sunday Affceriiooji. SIN DETECTED. 44 Bo sure voursiii will iindyou ouL"—Niunb. 32, 23. There can be no truer words. The circum stances in, which they were spoken were simply these. When the people of Israel were draw ing near to the promised land, the tribes of Reuben and Gad, who had, we are told, a very great multitude of cattle, were struck with the fitness of the land of Gilead, east- of the Jordan, for pastoral purposes, and asked Moses to give it to them for their , inheritance. Moses asked them, in effect, whether it was right thnt the other tribes should have all the labour and peril of crossing tho Jordan, and conquering the nations on the western side of it, while they sat down at their ease to enjoy a region which cost them neither toil nor danger. He warned them at the same time against following the example of their fathers, whose unbelief and moral cowardice had brought on them the dis pleasure of God. They replied that they would build folds for their cattle and...
