Chambers's Journal" contains an ac count of an attack upon a trading station at the month of the Niger, in which three white men-two Englishmen and a Frenchman-made a heroic stand against a horde of negrots from the Brass River, a neighbouring tributary of the Niger. The factory was a ?wooden building raised some twenty feet from the ground above the mud and slime of a tropical mangrove swamp. The narrator describes IIOTV the ho£.te savages came down the river in their canoes, overpowered ami murdered the Ivrooboys and other black labourers; and then attacked the factory, iu which the three Europeans had stationed them selves. Then (he continues) the united body moved towards the Euroi>eans" house, a grotesque procession, most of them dripping with blood from tbe-ir own or their victims' wounds, all tall....

The Home. Home Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896

The Home. Home Co-raramect. A lioma governed by gentle innuences j is, when. compared to a home governed by man's authority, as different as a person is from a machine-one islife,and the other mechanism. A. "governed" wrfe may have bread just as light and * home just as tidy as one guided, not governed. The wife guided by respect and gentleness will fill the house with brightness, joy, and devotion, such as the governed wife cannot even counter# feit, because her happiness shines through every act so genuine and irre pressible that* it'cannot be imitated. There is no exaggeration in this state ment. We have; seen sucli homes and know them to be genuine. But in them no thought of supremacy or governing can ever intrude; and we verily believe that it depends ;itpon' the husband more than on the wife to build csueli homes, but there must'be ao Haw in'the founda tions. .The martiage must be a true union, each ni'tifti.illy helping the other, and the bond' wfiTcIi holds them iimst be per...
