She Died with Him. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894
She Died with Him. Doctor Junker, a scientific explorer, travelled through Africa without armed escorts, accompanied only by his native attendants and carriers. He had brought from west of the Makua a pair of red-tailed parrots. Their wings beiug clipped, they were allowed to go about freely in the enclosure ; but tho queen, who was specially attached to Doctor Junker, would perch half the day together by his side. Unfortunately the pair came to a tragic end. The king bird had somehow fallen from the perch, and received some internal injury. Seeing him on the ground, bleeding from the beak, says the Doctor, I brought him to my couch, and laid him first, on one side and then on tho other, to give him a little ease ; but all to no purpose, and in about an hour he lay dead, with outstretched wings. Meanwhile the queen parrot, who had probably witnessed the accident, came in, and began to behave in a most extraordinary manner. First she imitated to the life all the movements of her dyin...
SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1894. THE COMING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894
SATUKDAY, JANUARY 13, 1894. THE COMING ELECTION. Accoedihg to the estimate of the Chief Electoral Officer, there will be about five thousand appeals to the revision courts for enrolment upon the electoral lists. Toe greater number of the appeals come from claimants in the metronolifcan district;*. In the country districts it is said that either the liBta were perfectly compiled in the first instance, or omitted electora have not cared to inspect the rolltt and make application for insertion of their names. On the whole, fleeing that no less than 2177 appeala were lodged in the metropolitan electorates, that the activity of appeal was largely the activity of leagues and associations in stir ring up electors rather than tba spontaneous activity of individuals, and that the whole of the remaining appeals up to five thousand, . are scattered over all the provincial elec torates, the prospects of the general election some time hence are not assuring to the friends of good government. For...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. PARLIAMENT AND THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. PARLIAMENT AND THE LAND. Sir, — It is noticeable that amid the multitude of election addresses now being delivered very few allusions to the land question are to be found, although it is one o£ vital importance to the colony. There is a good deal said about throwing the whole Burden of taxation on the land, but very little about inducing people to settle on the land, or encourage those already in occupation by lease or purchase to persevere in the work of developing the pastoral and agricultural industries. In South Australia the results of neglect or improper treatment of the land question is shown in the utter prostration of the pastoral industry. The pastoralisfca, instead of being assisted in their struggle against the difficulties of soil and climate, have simply bean driven to throw up the sponge, and abandon the conflict. What has been done in South Australia is sought to be done in New South Wales. On the pretence that it is sought to encourage settlem...
A Gambler Gives his Life to Save his Wife and Baby. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894
A Gambler Gives his Life to Save his Wife and Baby. A company of ranchmen sat about the railroad station in Pomona the other afternoon waiting for the belated overland train for Los Angeles. Every man in the party knew the others, and there being an hour or two to wait, story-telling of the early days on the border and in Arizona and California came natural, jssories 01 01a mines, wuen xuaians were bad and the white pioneers knew what bravery meant, were related. John Wilson of El Monte, told the most absorbing story of the hour : Talk about sand in a man, gentlemen ! I am telling you that it takes sand of the genuine article in any man to try and stand off single-handed forty or fifty Apaches, when he knows just how the scrap will end and that the end will be his own death. But that was just the kind of saad that was in Felix Knox when he was killed by the Apaches. You see, Knos was an all-round gambler, such as the tenderfoot from the East scorns so much and knows so little about,...

The Spider and the Fly. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894
The Spider and the Ply. A. case which was decided at Worship-street, London, ouNot. 6, throws considerable light upon the ways of the less reputable sort of money-lender. An unfortunate person named Kane, who had been a bombardier in the Eoyal Artillery, and was entitled to a pension of £4 a quarter, was intro the name of Woodroof, who advanced him £2. When Kane's pension of £4 fell due Woodroof appears to have taken the whole of it, and to have made him another advance of £2 upon the same favour able terms as before. This amusing game was, apparently, kept going for three years, the whole of Kare's pension, £48 in all, passing through his creditor's hands, which retained now more, now less, of the quarterly 6um. As Mr. Woodroof's advocate truly enough stated, there is no law against usury in this country, and, had he con fined himself to the exaction of 200 per cent., he wonld have been all right as far as the law is con cerned. Happily, he waB juat a little too clever, and, in con...
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894
ITEMS OP INTEREST. [Original and Selected.] . The last place one would look for a joke is perhaps an Act of Parliament, yet one has been discovered there before to-day. Probably the next most unlikely quarter for that sort of thing is the actuarial report of a life assurance society ; but we read in connection with recent calculations of the actuary of the Australian Mutual Provident Society, as published in a contemporary : ' Mr. Teece found that, contrary to the experience of other countries, the mortality among women at the child-bearing ages was less than among men, the risk of death in childbirth being found hera less than that among men, probaoly from accidents or other causes.' Will Mr. Teece kindly explain ? At the inquest conserning the death of an old man named John Russell, aged 73, who wa3 found in the Yarra, it transpired that he was penniless and in debt. He left a letter in which he stated, ' I have outlived my time.' ' Did I know Wild Ryan ? Well, I should just think...
