Captain's Flat. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 8 January 1904
Captain's Flat. (From Our Correspondent) 'NEW YEAR's DAY :-" It is a poor heart t: at never rejoices," is an old proverb, and very often requires little verification. The Xmas holidays were allowed to pass by in our town without the quintessence of a demonstration to show that the festival season was at hand. Without a doubt it was the quietest Xmas known for many a year on the Flat. The few old hands remaining felt the situation keenly, and over a few " pints " participated in by them the - conversation would often go back to by-gone years and Xmases and their happenings. Exclamations of "'I wonder where So-and-o80 is to-night," were numerous Then again many who interested themselves in promoting amusements hero for the Xmas holidays are now scattered from one end to the other of the States and others have left the country altogether. However to avoid a total aberration occurring, a few formed themselves into a committee to promote a day's amusement for New Year's Day, and which to...

The house is a four roomed cottage and has for about eight months been occupied by .1 ames Mineham, his wife, Florence \lary Minaharn, and their 16 months-old daabhter. Miineham, who earned his livelihoo I as a dealer, had always been regarded by his neighbours as a quie t, inuoffeasivo man when not under the influence of liquor ; but unfortunately hoindulged in occasional drinking bouts, when be some tim&lt;'s became violent, and treated his w fe with cruelty, for which he invariably ex pressed sincere regret when again in his normal condition. Ordinarily, the relations of the couple, according to the testimony of neighbours, were of quite a happy character. About a fortnight ago, however, Minehan began drinking very heavily, and remained in an almost continuous state of intoxication. During this period he was occasionally in a very quarrelsome...

The Storyteller. 'Ae ooue o the $urle$ $idse. CHAPTER 1. Although his allowance was a small one and his salary at the bank where he was a clerk was smaller still, the beautiful French. woman, who had apparently very little notion of the value of money, had appeared quite content, and had agreed to his proposal that they should start housekeeping in a small flat in an unfashionable neighbourhood. At first things went on pleasantly enough Madame, though perhaps a little less amiable at home than she was abroad, was still charming, accepting graoiously and gratefully her young husband's devotion, and managing her own little income and his with what at first looked like infinite intelligence. For the home was always beautiful, comfortable, luxurious, well ordered, the table was well served, and the rooms were bright and pretty with dainty lamps and fragrant flowers, Gradually however it was revealed to him that there was a serpent in the paradise-an ugly monster of debt coiling beneath ...
War Imminent. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 8 January 1904
War Imminenit. LosDON, January 5, 2.40 p.m.--The " Novoe Vremya," the leading daily paper of St. Petersburg in a pea imistic article, says that, despite the efforts of the Russian and Japanese Governmeuts to avert war, the former desiring peace, the latter wishing to avert bankruptcy " war is approaching nearer and nearer." The paper holds the chauvinism of the Japanese newspapers and people responsible. It is generally believed that Russia's reply toJapau is disignedly dilatory, in order to enable further re:forcomonts to be sent to the Far East. Lloyd's quotation against war within a month is nominally 50 guineas per cent. Insurance on cargo to Japan in Japanese steamers is about 25s to 30s per cent. The " Daily Express " states that King Edward is using his strong influence with the Czar to secure peace. The Korean Charge l'Affaires in London states that Korea will never agree to her northern frontier being converted into a neutral zone. The Japanese proposals, the Charge d'Affai...
