\ ? ? 1 TAMWORTH. Christmas holidays were somewhat dull, owindoabtleaa to the intense heat and depressed statef the times. The various ehurches conducted their;rvicea in the usual befitting manner, and attraod large congregations. The ecclesiastical Berviciwere creditable, and decorations, though profus.were tasteful. ' Comparisons are odious,' Therefe it is just to say that each of the raoernfies afforded instructive and impressivo sermoni.One pleasing feature was apparent through .SHfe.AS'lthat was an absolute absence of excessive ' show,' and the endeavour of each denomination io outdo the other.

Exiled to Siberia. When the Grand-Duke Alexis, of Russia, visited the United States, he had upon hia staff a young naval officer, named Stuniuk ovitch, who was very popular with those who met him in New York and other American cities. His father was a Russian admiral, and the young man was considered one of the most promising men of his age. He had special fondneus for literature, and after his return bomn from the tour with thn i grand-duke, he resigned his official position, and turned hiB attention to authorship.

Adventure with Wolves. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

Adventure with Wolves. We were camped on the north shore of Eed Lake, way up in Northern Minnesota. There were but two of us, my companion being an old guide and hunter named Jim Bascombe. On an October afternoon, while I was following the trail of a wounded deer, and was about three miles away from the camp, I got my foot caught in a mass of roots or»H thrnnm rin1«nfr,lr fn fVia nnAntJ T was running at tbe time, and the fall not only stunned me for several minutes, but I had no sooner recovered consciousness than I rea lized that I was helpless. My right leg was not broken, but I had given it such a twist that it throbbed and ached from ankle to hip. I got up after a bit, but only to fall down again. I couldn't bear an ounce of weight on that leg without acreamiug with pain. I dragged myself a few feet backward to a big tree, and when I had secured a rest for my back I began to wonder what I should do. Jim had gone off before noon by himself, and even ifjin camp at that moment he c...

Wine Testing. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

Wine Testing. The art of wine testing is but little under stood by the majority of consumers. Every person can, perhaps, tell what he likes him self, but it is only the trained palate that can distinguish between the multifarious flavours and qualities of a wine, or even detect the approach of disease or unsoundness. In tbe correct testing of wine four senses are brought into play — Bignt, smeu, tasie, uuu touch. Primarily, the sense of sight is em ployed. The first judgment to be made is whether the wine is clear, which iB the proper condition of wine that is ready to be con sumed, or whether it is turbid and in what degree. A perfectly fermented wine kept in an even and proper temperature should be clear in from one to two months after making, but it will not become quite bright until after the secondary spring fermentation is completed. If, toward the time that the grapes are setting, a wine is Hot quite clear, there is probably something wrong with it ; either some sugar still r...

Dumas, the great chemist, had a just opinion of \ his value to the world, and nothing annoyed him so i much as being mistaken for the novelist. On one occasion, a lion-huuting English lady, after praising him in the most effusive language, and observing that she knew every line of hiB writings, from 'Monte Christo' to the ' Mousquetaires,' added, 'I hope you will allow mo to send you a card for my next soiree.' 'Madam, I am in no way con i nected with the writer you allude to,' said the savant, with a cold disdain that no asinine, snub- . prooE coat-of-mail could resist. 'Oh, I thought you wero the great Dumas !' exclaimed the be wildered lady.

Terrible Anarchist Outrage at Barcelona. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

Terrible Anarchist Outrage at, Barcelona. A terrible outrage was committed in Barcelona recently, says Beater. The Liceo Theatre was filled with a large and dis tinguished audience, who had assembled to hear the popular opsra ' William Tell,' which waB to be performed for the first time after a long interval. While the perform ance waa going on, two bombs wore hurled from the topmost gallery into the midst of the stalls on the floor of the house. One exploded with an appalling report, spreading death and destruction on all sides. The second bomb did not explode, having, it is said, struck a soft substance. The whole audience rose to their feet in intoriBe terror, scarcely knowing what had happened. The theatre rang with shrieks of fear and cries of pain and horror! For a moment, the house was filled with a blinding smoko aud dust, and almost before the people knew what they were doing, a mad rush for tbe doorB took place. The scene was one which could never be forgotten. The terrifi...

A Reminiscence of Lord Palmerston. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

A Reminiscence of Lord Pal merston. Lord PalmerBton was for many years , and up to the time of his death (in October, 1865,)' member for Tiverton, where, on every reelec tion, he was always opposed. by an eccentric butcher. Wo one enjoyed the fun more than Lord Palmerston, who, on the last occasion — the butcher being absent through illness kindly inquired after the health bis old op nonent. A good story is told in the ' Gallery, writes a correspondent, of an adventure which three sessional reporters once had with hia lordship at Tiverton. It appears that three parliamentary repor ters who were engaged for the session only went on one occasion to Tiverton, to ' take ' Lord Palmerston's speech. There being no other candidote, the high sheriff declared Henry John Temple, Viscount Palmerston, duly elected, and having thanked the electors for the honour they had again done him in returning him, the proceedings terminated. His lordship, however, had been invited by the Mayor and burgeRse...
