THE CHAPLAIN'S SIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 6 January 1899
THE CHAPLAIN'S SIGN. Army chaplains occupied a peculiar posi tion. While ofticc.rs, in a way, they were not hedged about with that divinity which doth hedge a man wearing shoulder straps. In consequence, says the ' Omaha World Herald,' the men in the ranks often bothered the chaplains a great deal by asking them questions whi :h they dared not ask the com. missioned officers. While Thomas was hiding behind the trenches in and about Corinth his men be came very anxious to know when the division would move out and take the initiative. 1 hey did not dare question their officer*, but they did ply their chaplains with questions. The chaplain of an Illinois regiment, had been an noyed by repeated questions as to when the regiment would move, and finally decided upon a plan to head off the questioners. Se curing the top of a hard-tack box he printed the following sign and stuck it up in front of his tent: — THE CHAPLAIN DOES NOT KNOW WHEN THE REGIMENT WILL MOVE. He thought this would save ...

Ice Creams. '? — Ice creams, as ordinarily sold in the streets, are a frequent . «w.iree of danger to children, and that of the- most sei-ion* ldnd. Typhoid fever, skin diseases, and many other ailments are often clearly traceable to the literally filthy nature of the creams sold In the streets and manufactured in the lowest quarters of cities, where cleanliness of the milk a, i*1 itt'lim, Inffrruii/in^A 4c ntlHivaitr Ittirn presented. Mothers slioiild on no ac count allow their children to partake of these creams. Ueconf investigations in to the nature of the contents of ice cream barrows reveal a literally shock ing state of matters, and il l«. Indeed, high rime that the ice-cream barrow should be brought under strict legal su pervision.
THE STORY OF THE RAILWAY WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 6 January 1899
THE STORY OF THE RAILWAY WHISTLE. 1 am told that on the railway line which I know best, the London and Soulii-Wcstern, the shriek of the railway whistle, so familiar to all of us, particularly at travelling tiincE, is soon to be heard no more. One cau almost as soon imagine a train without puffs and snorts and slamming doors as without a warning whistle. The whistle, however, is to have a Bueci-ssor, in a sort of waii or buzzer, called a ' siren,' such as they have on steamboats, and this, it is thought, will be pleawinter to hear. The railway whistle itself was not invented all at once. 'At first the driver of the engine used to bluw a horn, when he came near a level crossing, to let people know that a train was coming ami they hud better get out of the way. But the blaat of a horu is. not very load when com pared with the eoise Jjtid rattle of a train ; and one day a farmer * was crossing the line in a cartcontaining nis dairy produce for the market, 501b. of butter and 80 dozen e...

A FRIENDLY KIND OF FIGHT. FOOTBAIL THREE CENTURIES AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 6 January 1899
A fRIEMDLY tflNfi €F flCHT. rOOTBAXL THREE CENTBBEEB AGO. The prevailing notion is that 'flying - . wedges,' 'tandems,' and other massed ; plays in football are modern devices. Perhaps they an, but it seems that as early as'lSBSSiF in ye Bealme of England, an outcry wnsf' raised against the game as ' a bloody mid murthering practice.' Ono Phillip Stubbea published -in that year an ' Anatomic ' of ' the abuseB current in the realm, and here is what he had to say of football:— \ ' Now who is so grossly bliode that seeth not theBe aforesaid exercises not unly with- - draw us from godliness and virtue, but also huile aud allure us to wickedncsse and sins'.

STATISTICS OF CENTENARIANS [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 6 January 1899
STATISTICS OF CENTENARIANS The ' llevue Scientifiquo ' has a note on the statistics of centenarians, in which it ia stated that out of a population of 39,000,000 there nre 213 persons ' in France who have lived over a century. In Germany there arc 78, in England 146, in Scotland .46. in Norway 23, in Sweden 18. Belgium has only 6, whilst longevity is at a discount in Switzerland, since that country cannot claim a single 'centenarian. But ia the 'K«vue' sure of its figures? Centenarians to the number of 1,084 living in Koumania is rather ' tall.' Again, 401 are claimed for Spain. Thin can not easily be verided, but surely we should know .something about *he 576 centenarians ? accorded to Ireland, If this is a fantastic figure, then the joachman at Moscow, aged 140, the women in Siberia of 130, and I lie negro at Buenos Ayres of ISO inspire us with i little faith.
