' It isn't anything more than I expected." moaned Consul Green when heheard whither he was to be sent. It was a place with a" long name ending in " chew." and, of all districts. in the Hunan province. " There will be no European society fit to touch the hem of your dress, dearest," lie continued. "Of coure I can bear it. well enough, for I shall have you with me. and you are all the world. But I call it a beastly shame none the less. And if there are rows -well, we all know the kind of cattle they are in Hunan." ' "Rows I What do yon mean I" inquired? Isabel. She had begun to loathe this good little husband of hers. !Neither the diamonds he lihad bought her nor the reverential caresses lie bestowed upon her could doaunght but increase her loathing.

11. The cbnsuliplumed himself, vastly upon his wife on the P. and -O. stediner which duly bore them both to Shanghni. The other pas sengers were amused. But they did not think the little man was far out in making such a fuss about his possessions. At least the men did not. On the other hand, the women whispereds together a good deal. Isabel was less sensible than most girls. 'that mattered little, however, on boaM ship. for she soon levrnt that she could attract males by merely lifting an eyelash: and that whereas certain other of the ladies failed to make themselves Interesting to the gentlemen though they talked like the wind, "yes" and "no" from her lips served her matter. Her husband was kindness in in itself to her; but then so was every other man on board ship. She haul searcely been married a month. Isabel supposed that in so short a time her heart could not be expected to yearn towards Benjamin as site imagined a wife's heart ought to yearn towanis ther husband. But it was s...

Butr the rioters had good exchange for the victim they lost. For having gopbher husband into the yard, Isabel herself slippedl outside the house and snappel the door after her. For a anidnent the men held their sticks aloft and kept their tongues silent while they looked at her. : , *" You can kill me if you like," shesaid with complete gahnness and that stu tge smile on hIriftan'lwhidh the Iitiror'hoad seen. And kill her they did. They had sca*ielye succeeded in this when the crack of revolver shoots sounnded in their rear. Four of them bit the dust ere they could escape from the five Europeans , who had comenic in a body to the rescue. Consul Green. recovered eventually, but poor Imlrel. found a grave in the Celestial 'Land, which is often nevertheless so infernal a- place of pilgrimage for the European allottaed to it.

IV. % The Europeans met at the Club House to take proceelings for their self-defence in case of neled. It was arranged that when the crisis became acute they should all mass in the consulate. well armed. With a dozen re volvers and rifles they reckoned themselves a match for any ordinary horde of "pigtails." The one missionary admitted that he would pull a trigger like the rest. Burit his two rivals said they would do no such thing. If they were to die, they would die without the stain of bhlow-shed upon their souls. Consul Gree n made protest after protest to the mandarins in local authority. But his Aelve4eMtate?i the' -i-feeli ?m i s the "foreign devils."

White, Feather. (FROM OUR oW ?C?uBERPONDEmN.) In matters mining I an pleased to be able to report that we are making good progress in developing the various leases here. I am informed that matters are looking very well at the 4eneral Gordon and that the stone islookinlg as well at 50ft as it did at the surface, with the advantage that.the reef has widened out a. good deal and that the Gordon Consols have picked up the; main reef. I hear that there are about 80 leases taken up there. I am pleased to learn that the Progress leaseis being. floated locally under the pamne of the White Feather Proprietary. This claim is one of the best in the district, and I wish it every success. I notice that our well known townsman Mr Baldu is the represen totive here, and is, I believe, to be appointed local director. The Rising Sun is another lease that, as work proceeds, is turning out well. There are several lodes on the property, and under the energetic management of Mr J. Northey these are being...

BROWN HILL JUNCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 5 March 1896
BROWN HILL JUNCTION. It is reported that good gold has been struck in the eastern crosscut from the 130ft level of this mine. The manager, however, refuses to give any information respecting it' at present, and we are unable to confirm the news. It is supposed that the lode Struck is a continuation of the western ore body noiv? being opened up in the Brown Hill Pro prietary mine, and the manager has some very good specimens in his quarters- but beyond this we are unable to obtain any in formation for the present. The Junction,, like another mine of the same name, is held by an Adelaide.company. A fair supply of water has, been struck in a winze in the Ophir Mine at the 1 0 U at a depth of iZ5ft. As the influx prevents the wince being carried any deeper a start has been made to sink the vertical shaft down, to drain the workings. -The mine is opening, _up well, and the Company's battery, which has arrived at Fremantle, will be sent on to the property as soon as the railway is again o...
