GREAT AMERICAN SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
GREAT AMERICAN SCHEME. Many of London's finest buildings are hidden away in narrow streets, and. eo closely sur rounded by warehouses and property of every description that their splendid elevations are completely lost to the passer-by. A number of American financiers who have secured the patronage of several Englishmen of distinction propose to expend two millions sterling on the erection of two buildings having a frontage to the Strand of 750 feet on the north side, slightly concave, the bettor to accommodate St. Mary's Church, standing in front of it, but with a spacious roadway between. The build ings will have eight storeys up to the first roof, and upon this roof, but thrown considerably back, will be four storeys more. These will rise frem the middle of the building, and'will be crowned by a great dome or cupoda, with a diameter of some seventy-five feet. Two car riage ways will lead through the central cres cent, and there will be a great courtyard under the dome. The total ...
A Toast That Touched Their Hearts. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
A Toast That Touched Their Hearts. &nbsp; &nbsp; Colonel Thomas W. Higginson said that at a dinner at Beaufort, where wine flowed freelv and ribald jests were bandied, Dr. Miner, a slight, boyish fellow who did not drink, was told that he could not go until he had drunk a toast, told a story, or sung a song. &nbsp; He replied : " I cannot sing, but I will give you a toast, although I must drink it in water It is, "Our Mothers. " &nbsp; The men were so affected and ashamed that some took him by the hand and thanked him for displaying courage greater than that re- quired to walk up the mouth of a cannon. This, Colonel Higginson says, was the bravest act he ever witnessed. // &nbsp; Recently, the Playgoers' Club (London) offered £100 prize for the best drama sent in in open competition. Out of five hundred, Miss &nbsp; Syrett, a school-teacher in England was suc- cessful, and her play will soon be produced by Mr. George Alexander and Mr. ...

A while ago, Mr. Mortimer Menpes' studio was filled by a large and enthusiastic crowd of smart people, who promptly saw that Australia knows how to produce players—on the piano, as well as on the cricket field.

The Holy War. [ORIGINAL.] "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
The Holy War. [ORIGINAL.] "The weapons of our warfare are not carrmL" What is this sound, that'n tlirilling through the land It is the cry of battle, yet it's note Is not as that winch' calls mankind to sHv; A joyous ring is in its summoning, Foretelling rest, strength, gladness to the soul, And as in anthem tone it rises high, Ascending to tiie Everlasting Tiirone, Angels of light pause in their higher strains, Ana, leaning down through starry spheres, behold The must'rnig band of warriors with glad eyes. But few their numbers, yet how tinn tney hold Their streaming banner to the stitt'ning breeze That blows from every quarter of the globe: Fearless of earthly storms and tiiundenugs Unfurled before all men their colors fly. Upon that waving length is written huge: "For truth in its tirst purity wo stand." And now their battle song ascends on high, Quick'ning the dead'ned air with stirring notes; Tiie sword of our defence no glitt'ring steel, "We wield no weapon of destructiveness, ...

Start Me. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
Start Me. " Start me I" cried little Alice from lier perch on the 8wins. " I want to go high! start me!" . "Somebody can't be starting you all the time," answered Tommy, half impatient of her demands upon him, half desirous of giving; her a bit of instruction. "Put your foot to the ground and start yourself." It is the same story, the same oiy the world over. People are longing to mount high along many lines, but for the most part they aTe sitting stall and waiting for somebody to start them. They want to reach success, but they want to swing high from the first—to be pushed by some one's money, strength or name. Those who are really willing to begin with their feet on the ground, and start themselves, are comparatively few. One who has been brought much into contact with young people, young women especially, and has been endeavouring to help them, recently said that her greatest discouragement lay in the fact that they all wanted at once the reputation, the pay and the patronage of...
For Sunday Afternoon. "JOB'S COMFORTERS." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
Foi' Suiiditf Afternoon. "JOB'S COMFORTERS." Job, *2-11—i4 Now when JoVk throe friends heard of all tins evil tlmt %vjls to conic njxm .liim, they «nne cveryouc from hit« own plucv; Eliphaz thoTeiiuuiite, »nd Bildad the Siiuhite, uiirt Zophur the JTmmm thite; for they luid nude un appointment together to come to mourn with him unci to comfort hixn.*'^ Theiie "was a time after this when Job was so embittered with life thnt he turned savagely upon liis friends, and said: "Miserable com forters are yo all." And because of that querulous utterance, of a man whose life had been darkened by unspeakable sorrow, Job's friends liave been roundly abused by a hun dred generations of nreachers, and tho .very phrase "Job's Comforters," has come to indi cate a comfort which is unreal, a friendship which is undesirable. - J • • "Give a dog a bad name arid hang him," the old proverb says. Well, Job's friends have had the bad name, and most people have had some hand in tho business of hanging, and e...
The Australian Protestant Defence Association. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
The Australian Protestant Defence Association. ; A meeting of the Association was held at Dulwich Hill on January 14tb. The secretary of the Association, the Rev. Robert J. Ferguson, was the principal.speaker, and in the course of an interesting address said: " Since I became identified with the A.D.P. Association (and I did so after careful thought) I have found in my peregrinations a spirit of antipathy to the movement amongst a number of protestant people, and where I least expected to find it. The cause of this is, no doubt to a large extent, the result of self-reliance, and an utter wrong impression, as to the real objects of the Association. As the name implies, it is a Defencc Association, defence against what? Those Protestants who take the trouble to keep themselves posted up in the doings of Roman Catholicism, and the Ritualis tic movement in the Church of England, both in JSngland, her dependencies and colonies have not to think much for an answer. This organi zation has ...
A Faithful Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
A Faithful Soldier. Who has not heard of the Roman soldier whose remains were found at Herculaneum ? About 1800 years ago Versuvius was in eruption, and sent down on the city a hot, blinding rain of stones and ashes. Everybody who could, fled for life; and no doubt the brave soldier would have been just as glad to escape as anybody else; bnt he could hot do so with honour. He was a sentinel on guard, and his duty required that, whatever may happen, he should remain at his post; and there he died—a martyr to duty.
Over the Tea Cups. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
Over tEe Tea "Cups. I The Australian Museum wants more curios, ! and appeals to the public to overhaul their I spare rooms, sheds, attics, etc., in search of stuffed animals, minerals, or thrown-aside articles of any sort, some'of which, if cleaned up and stuck under glass, would bo valuable additions to an institution that is woofullj' behind its fellows in certain departments. . Signor Hazon, the popular musical conduc tor, lias recently developed a habit of repeatedly rapping his desk with his baton. His audiences at the Philharmonic concerts won't take to it kindly. Is it the worry of fixing tho Federal capital or tho abuse about tho tariff that is causing Sir George Turner and Mr. Kingston to age so much? People who know both legislators well, say that they both have aged consider ably during tho past few months. The School of Arts held its annual meeting on Monday night, and the customary laudatory speeches were made. By the way, some of the ladv students at the classes compla...

Why Johnnie Wept [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
Why Johnnie Wept Johnnie and Jennie were having a tea party. " You can pour out the tea, Jennie," said Johnnie, graciously. " Well," said Jennie, greatly pleased. "And I will help at the cake," went on Johnnie. " We-ell," repeated Jennie doubtfully. 80 Jennie poured out the tea, and Johnnie cut up the cake. Mother had given them a large piece, which Johnnie had cut into five small pieces, all of about the same size. He helped Jennie to one piece, and began to eat one himself. Jennie poured out the tea, and the feast went merrily on." Presently rose a discussion, and tbeu came a prolonged wail from Johnnie. " What is.the matter ?" asked mother. "Jennie's greedy and selfish, too?" cried Johnnie. We each had two piecas of cake, and there was only one left, and Jennie took— she took it all." Mother looked perplexed. " That does seem rather selfish of Jennie!" » "Tee, it was!" Johnnie wept, "'cause I cut the cake that way, so's I ;ould have the extra piece.myself -Selected
"At tge Sign of the Red Pale." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 February 1902
At tlie Si^nof theKedPale." O.VE of the most interesting men of our .time is the new Principal of Hastings College, Lon don,Peter Taylor Forsyth, D.D. He. is only being discovered just now by the general j public, but it. says. something for the pnblic I weal that lie has been discovered at all. There are many writers and teachers who follow the apostolic injunction In administering new milk to babes, but not many can go further and provide "strong meat'-, for men. Dr. Forsyth can do botli these things—he can talk to chil dren in a marvellous way, because lie possesses imagination; and he can talk to men because ho has road widely and had a virile intellect. So, wliilo we wonder why some authors write so much, we regret that others write so little, and Dr. Forsyth belongs to that silent class whose next word is waited for. # « # Dr. Forsyth's first work of note was a re markable volume entitled, " Religion in Recent Art," published in 1889. It contains six lec tures, and the titles ...
