OFF THE WHISKY. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
OFF THE WHISKY. Dean Ramsay recounts an illustration of fertility of reaourae in the »tory of the dying rustio who ' speered* at the parish minister if there would be any whisky in heaven. On being rebuked for this mundane anxiety and irreverent curiosity, Sandy replied in self-excuse : ' TliRt it waana beoause he wad tak ony if it were offered him, but jistin respeck that it wad look weel on the table.' Our home is like a millinery atore ; It makea me feel quite rash To hear them calling o'er and o'er For ' cash, cash, cash I''
The Irish Census. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
The Irish Census. The fuller roturna of tho Irish census etnphasiso tho fact, already known, that tho population of Ireland continues to decline. It has done so for the last sixty years, ever Binco 1S11, when tho Irish people numbered over 8,000,000. Tbe decreaso in the intervening period is nearly 3,/ uO, 000, and there has been a falling off in tbe last ten years of about 200,000, The process of depopulation affects all the four provinces,- though it ia least evident in Ulster ; but, as in Great Britain, the largest towns are growing at the expense of tho rural districts. Ireland, however, is never likely to be a country of large towns, and it is practically certain that the next census will show a further decline in tho total population. The most obviouB deduc tion from this Btate of things is its bearing upon the representation of Ireland in the House of Commons.

TROUBLE OVER WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
TROUBLE OVER WINE. A correspondent writes to the London * Standard ' X was recently staying in one of the largest hotels in London. I ordered a bottle of wine for lunch. Not feeling in a drinking humour, I only consumed one-third of it. At dinner the same evening I asked for the wine that 1 had left, but waB informed that it could not be produced, aa all the wine left on the table is considered a waiter's perquisite. Finding that the authori fifin nf fliA hnfnl vittAfAiulo tho head waiter's contention, I iBBued a summons. My solicitors havo, however, just informed mo that the hotel authori ties have thought better of the matter, and have paid my claim and coata into court.
THE TRAGEDY OF MODERN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
THE TRAGEDY OF MODERN lift The age of Byronism, as it used to bo called, is over. Possibly, says F. Marion Crawford, tragedies are more real and froquent in our day than when tho last century was young ; at all ovents, those which take place seem to draw a new olement of horror from those undefinable, mechanical, prosaic, pBeudo-Bcientific conditions which mako our lives so different from those of our labueio. Averytniug is ternoiy suaaen nowadays, and alarmingly quick. Lovers make lovo acrosa Europe by telegraph, and poetic justice arrives in Iosb than forty-eight houra by the Oriental Ex* press. Divorce is our weapon of precision, aud every pack of cards at the gaming-table can distil a poison more deatruotive than that of the Borgia. The unities of time and place are pre served by wire and rail in a way which would have delighted the hearts of the old French tragics. Perhaps men seek dramatic situations in their own lives less readily since they have found out means of making the...
WARDING FOR SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
WARNING FOR SHOKERS. Professor Furst, of Leipsig, solemnly warns those who 'chew' their cigars that they cannot escape infecting the membranes of their mouths with nicotine. With every whiff of smoke they lead into their stomach poison particles, for nicotine easily dissolves iu uk tkD a. smoke the nicotine lodges directly behind the burned part of the tobacco ; and with every whiff, the remaining volume or content of tho cigar or pipe becomes more impregnated with nicotine | as well as with the other inherent pro perties of tobacco, namely ammonia, carbonic and other acidB and carburetted hydrogen gas. As a consequence, the stump of a cigar ia not only ill-smelling, but a dangerous object to consume, in bad cigars especially ; and this is, of course, equally truo of cigarette*endB and the bottom-layer of a pipe. Never smoke a cigar, cigarette, or pipo to the 'bitter' end.
IS WAR NECESSARY? [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
IS WAR NECESSARY ? The great social forco which operates in giving prominence and predominance to tho monarchy is war; and, though war is unquestionably an evil, it is an evil only as death is, and a form of dying accompanied not soldom with an exhibition of moro manhood than tho u&perience oi many a peaceiui aeatn-oed can show. In fact, as stout old Bal merino said on tho scaffold in 1746, 'Tho man who ia not ready to die is not fit to live that is, wo hold our life under the condition that we may at any timo be called on to sacrifice it, whether for the preservation of oar own self respect, or for the integrity of tho com* munity of which we aro a member. All great nations, in fact, have been cradled in war, the Hebrews no less than the Greeks and Romano ; and it is only an amiable sentimentalism, pardonable in women but inoxcusablo in men. that in contemplation of hard blows, red wounds, and gashed bodies with which war is accompanied, will allow itself to forget the hard...
A DROLL MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
A DROLL MISTAKE. Before the Paris Exhibition waa open to the public, and when tho building 1 contained only the cases which were being ranged for the respective exhibits, quite a crowd one Sunday flattened their noses against the glass entrance-door to look at the contents of a case containing a' pair of boots, a battered hat, an over* coat much the worse for wear, and a necktio of many colours, the report being circulated that the objocts be* longed to King Dagobert, Robespierre, or Charles X* The enigma was solved by a painter arriving and throwing off hit blouse aud slippers, aud commencing to dress himself amidst, what waa a puzzle to him, loud laughter, in which the police joined.
ARRESTED AFTER MANY YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
ARRESTED AFTER MANY YEARS. The case of the man Lilywhite, arrested iu Now Zealand and taken over to England on suspicion of being the person who committed a murder at Colchester some years ago, sorves as a reminder that the English law takes no account of the lapse of time in criminal cases, and that, contrary to a common notion, a criminal may be tried at any time, no matter how long after tho com* mission of tho offence. Thus in the middle of the eighteenth oentury Eugene Aram was convicted and sen tenced for the murder of Clarke fourteen years after his crime. Home waa executed for the murder of his child thirty*five years after his crime. In 1802 Governor Wall was executed for a murder committed in 1782. In recent | years a man named Sherward waa executed at Norwioh for the murder of his wife more than twenty years before. Sir Fitzjames Stephen, indeed, mentions as a curiosity that at the Derby winter assizes in 1863 he held a brief for the Crown in a case in whioh a man was cha...

WHAT MAMMA SAID. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
WHAT MAMMA SAID. Little Tommy : ' Papa.' Papa : ' Yes, Tommy ?' ^ ' Mrs. Brown was here to-day, 'and guess what she said about you ?' ' Oh, I can't 1' the old- gentleman replied, beginning to get interested. ' What was it ?' ' She told mamma she thought you «v*rA ciirh a hanricnmp-lnnkincr man. and carried your age so well.' ' 'She did, eh?1 he replied, pretend ing that it didn't make any particular difference to him what Mrs. Brown had said. ' But,' the sweet child continued, ' mamma told her she ought to see you in the morning, before you put in your false teeth and get the side-hair brushed over your bald spot.' The merino sheep of Spain have the whole of that kingdom for their pasturage. They spend the summer generally in the pastures of the Pyrenees, and, as winter draws near, migrate to the plains in the southern provinces, accomplishing in doing so a journey of four or five hundred miles. Mrs. Clubleigh : ?' But, Henry, dear, in this photograph you have only one button on you...
GENERAL CLERY AND HIS CHEF. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
GENERAL CLERY AND HIS eflEF. General Sir Francis C!ery, who has been 11 placed on retired pay,' is in many respects a remarkable man. In appearance. Sir Francis is striking; in speech, brusque and dogmatic — he haa never lost the manner of his professional days— in movement, active to a degree. Qe is a fine rider, both his horse and himself beiug always faultlessly groomed and turned out. Something of an epicure in diet, he is, amongst other curious things, credited with having taken a French chef out with him when no went to join bir ivedvers Duller tn Natal. Someone asked him why, aa the staple of food was bound to bo nothiug but 11 bully' beef and biscuit? 41 All the more necessity for a Frenoh chef to make it palatable,' was the General's incisive reply, rapped out in his own inimitable tonea. Sir Franois, too, was the only man in the Army who dared to trifle with a cocked hat and feathers. He wore his own perched on the right* hand side of his head like a forage cap, aud looked...
ROBES OF STATE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
ROBES OF STATE. The robe or mantle worn by the King on state occasions is very voluminous and very long— indeed, it forms quite a train. The outsido is of rich crimson velvet, the lining of royal ermine. Many hundred ermine skins were needed for the purpose, and all were of tho finest quality. In order to give tho cloak the combination known in heraldry as uuuuver, uie ermine nas oeen Byinmetri cally spotted with upwards of 10,000 small pieces of black fur. A peer's robe ia of scarlet cloth, with bars of ermine and bands of gold braid across tho right shoulder and right side of the back. The number of these bars denotes tho rank — a duke has four in front and four behind ; a marquis four in front, three at back ; an earl has three each way ; a viscount three in front, two behind ; and a baron two each way. The lining of these robes is silk, of a delicate mauve colour, and thoy fasten with black ribbon strings. The bishops wear robes like temporal peors, with the difference of a deep...
COOL IMPUDENCE. A Pickpocket's Humble Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
COOL IMPUDENCE. A Pickpocket's Humble Advice. A thief once wrote to tho editor of tho 'Now York Tribuno ' : * Sir— Please advise your readers always to Joavo their names and addresses in their pocket* books. It frequently happens in our business that wo come into possession of portemonnaies containing private papers and photographs, which we would gladly return ; but wo have no moans of doing SO. Tr 19 tn about, ho we aro forced to deBtroy them. I romombor an instance when I mot with serious trouble because I could not mako up my mind to destroy a picture of a baby, which I had found in tho pocket-book of a gentleman, which camo into my hands in the way of business in tho Third Avenuo Road. I had lost a baby myself tho year beforo, of thosamo ago as this one, and would havo given all I had for such a picture. There was no name in tho pocket*book, and no way of finding out who was tho owner : so, like a bloomin' fool, 1 advertised it, and pot ahadowod by tho 'demons' (police). Toll y...
CRITICS CRITICISED. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
CRITICS CRITICISED. In his aormon on the death of Lord Tennyson, Dean Farrar used tho follow ing strong expression ' The insolent inoompetence of critics, which leaveB its furrow and its slime (tic) on tho lives of most of the greatest mon, as the wasp stings and the snail the life of Shelley and the death of Keats, raged like a lire against the name of Coleridge, availed for years to make Wordsworth a butt for shallow wit, and left Browning for half his life a poet without an audience ; but its baseness was unavailing from the first against the victorious splendour of Tennyson.' Tha critic who would avoid such abuse as this must be careful to offer nothing but the incense of praise and flattery. Solomon's wisdom may havo been due to the fact that he never smoked cigarettes.
The late Mrs. Everingham. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 7 September 1901
The late Mrs. Everingham. By the death of Mrs. Everingham which took place at the Imperial Hotel, of which he was licensee, on Monday evening the town has lost another of its old and highly respected residents. The deceased lady was considerably advanccd in years, having almost reachod the allotted span, being at the time of her death 68 years of age. Her death was not altogether unexpected as she had been in failing health for some consider- able time, but none of her friends who were around aud about her from day to day anticipated that the end was so near, or that it was to take place so suddenly as it did. Indeed, on the day of her demise, the &nbsp; state of her health gave no cause for any extra anxiety. She seemed better, if anything, and was able to read and get about to within a few moments of the actual dissolution. Whilst sitting in her chair a change, noticed by those around her, suddenly came over &nbsp; her and for the moment it was thought she had mere...

THE FUNERAL. The funeral, which took place on Tuesday afternoon, was one of the largest witnessed &nbsp; in Moree The remains, which were laid to rest in the Anglican portion of the cemetery, were followed to the grave by a large assemblage of mourners and sympathising friends. The cortege, which included &nbsp; between forty and fifty vehicles, moved from the Hotel shortly after 4 o'clock. The flags on the hotels and business places were lowered to half-mast, and doors were closed as it moved slowly along. The coffin, which was convoyed in an enclosed hearse, was covered with beautiful floral tokens of affection. The chief mourners were Mr. R. &nbsp; J. Nowland (brother of the deceased), Mr. R. T. Williams and Mr. C. H. Gall (sons-in- law), and Mr. F. Williams. A large number of friends gathered around the graveside, where the exceptionally beautiful service for the dead was read by the Rev. J. T. Bate, of All Saints', and in a few moments the mournful cerem...
