CORN COBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

CORN COBS. — ; — i The Electob will always be g*ad to receive notes from its country readers. More City Council dirty linen being washed in the law courts this week. Over 10,000,000 acres of pastoral leases in Queensland are to be made available as grazing farms shortly. Many people who are now rush ing to Africa will rue it. Distress will be sure to emanate from their prematurity. There are said to be in Victoria between 20,000 and 30,000 children either receiving no education or about whose education nothing is officially known. At the annual conference of school teachers Lord Beauchamp stated that statistics showed there were 255, aOO children of school age in the colony, but the daily attendance was only about 164,000. According to Lord Beauchamp (and to everybody else who is not blind) the number of children to found in the streets, both day and night, is a striking feature of Sydney. According to Dr. O. Ogle, in his table founded on the death rates from 1871 to 1880, out of a ...

' I c&me to say that while I was drawing water to make cofloe for breakfast a great fish came out of the pipe, and' ? ' ' Oh, I see,' the clerk interrupted, with an ingratiating smile. ' You came in to pay for it. That was very honeBt of you ; but we will no: accept money for a single fish. It is true we do not guarantee to furnish fish, but we shall not take advantage of your unequalled honesty.' With a magnanimous wave of the hand the clerk tried to dismisa the subject, but the caller resumed: ' But this fish was ? ' 1 A fine large one, and made an agreeable addition to your morning meal ; but still we would not think of charging you for it. YoumigH, however, keep count of the fish that we supply in that way, and after you have had, any, a dozen, we may make some sort of charge.' ? Young mnn,' gl .red the woman, ' do you...

GORE AND GLORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

GORE AND GLORY. The Dutch version of Baden Powell's 'Aids to Scouting,' speci ally translated for Delarey's com mandos, is called 'Aids to Scooting.' The Rhodesian companies have offered the Australian Bushmen large farms, practically gratis, on condition that they agree to settle in Rhodesia. Return of the invalids from South Africa. Lucky boys— but good luck to them, anyhow ! Whatever we may think of the war itself, the country is proud of the boys who volunteered. Boer war nearing conclusion ; panorama now changes to the Far East, where China, in her madness, is defying Europe and Japan. Her ompire will probably be given to tho Powers, but the bloodshed ere tho end comes will be fearful. Sir Wilfred Lawaon tells the story of a Scotchman who ex claimed in a 'bus, ' Ay, Kruger ought to be hanged.' A mild gen tleman in the corner said, ' Kruger perhaps might have something to say to that,' on which the Scotch man indignantly called out, 'Con ductor, put yon man oot ; this is no deba...

HARD LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 6 July 1900

HARD LINES. Another injustice to woman (and one of a particularly offensive and unpardonable character) is said to have lately been perpetrated in the ' land of the free and the home of the brave,' and the wooden nutmeg. According to an American paper, a young man in love not long ago pro posed marriage to a young woman, and was accepted. But hearing that her hair was false he declined to fulfil his engagement. She brought a suit against him for breach of promise, but on being cross-examined the plaintiff admitted that she wore a wig, whereupon she was nonsuited on the ground that she had won the young man's affections under false pretences. This is too bad. IE this sort of thing is to be tolerated there will have to be reprisals from the fair sex. And when a Lothario, who has been maintaining the symmetry of his mouth by the aid of the dentist's artful skill, wins a woman's heart and a promise of her hand, and ehe finds after marriage that he keeps his glistening white teeth on the...

"WOMAN AND WINE." [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 6 July 1900

' WOMAN AND WINE.' The following poem, so charac teristic of its author both for sub ject and treatment, was written as an appendix to the late Burne Jones's celebrated picture 1 The Vampire.' The poem, no less than the picture, created a profound sen sation at the Royal Academy recently. Of the painting it can be said that it ranks undoubtedly as the artist's masterpiece. The picture is weird almost to repulsive ness. It depicts a scornfully beautiful woman — figure and beauty such as only Burne-Jones could paint — gazing triumphantly at the dead body of the man whom she has entangled in the meshes of love by the witcheries of fascinat ing beauty, only to slay him. There is not even a trace of hatred in the face of the woman, but a look that seems to say, ' body and soul he is mine, and none other shall have him.' A fool there was, and he made his prayer (Even as you and I !) To a rag end a bone and a hank of hair (We called her the woman who did n»t care), But the fool he called h...

TWICE-TOLD TALES. THREE COLONIALS TO TWENTY BOERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 6 July 1900

TWICE-TOLD TALES. THREE COLONIALS TO TWENTY BOERS. Mr. Fletcher Robinson, the war correspondent of the new London morning paper, the Daily Exprets, relates in a letter from the Oape how a man from the front, be longing to the Irregular Horse, paid homage to the virtues of the Australians in a Capetown hotel. ' Bv the war. how have the Australians been doing ? ' asked the correspondent. 1 A splendid lot of fellows, and keen as mustard,' said the man from the front, ' but as scouts they have one failing. They're too anxious to do it all themselves. For instance, three of them went out the other day, and presently spotted some 70 Boers. Did they come back and report ? Not a bit of it. One took up a position on a kopje to the left, one on a kopje to the right, and a third behind some anthills in the centre. Then they commenced a general action, and what with loosing off their magazines, and what with shifting their positions when the ground favored them, they made the honest burghers fa...

WITHIN THE RING. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 6 July 1900

WITHIN THE RING. The Assembly has been engaged in routine work so far, and only one or two measures of importance have been dealt with. The Government have pushed forward their Bills re lating to the Wharf Resumptions, tho Harbour Trust, &c., and the House has been solid in its support of the measures. Mr. Rose, member for Argyle, re ceived a shock when he introduced his proposal for sale in preference to the leasing of Crown Lands. Mr. Frank Cotton made telling points, as he always does on land matters, and completely worsted the member for Argyle. The friends of the principle of sale were afraid to go to a division and an adjournment was granted — to ensure quiet death to the proposal. Mr. Wise introduced his Compul sory Arbitration Bill and made a good speech in support. The At torney-General, however, can, like most lawyers, say a lot and intend little. His bill is after all but a superficial remedy for constitutional trouble, and, indefinite as it is, is sure to meet wi...

The Tivoli — Variety Company. Cyclorama — Jerusalem & Illusions. Planquette's Old Guard, is styled in the French Les Yoltiguers and was first played at the Renaissance in Paris in '80.

In '91, Lauri took Elton's place and in '94, Joseph Tapley was the Gaston while Wallace Brownlow was the Marcel. To-day, not one of the original cast remains and the performance is not a patch on that of '91. Brownlow and Kenningham are fairly good, Lauri as usual seems half asleep, Ada Winston Weir can neither act nor dance in a part which requires both. By the way, Florence Young made her first h...

Women v. Bulls and Bears. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 6 July 1900

Women v. Bulls and Bears. I may say at once that the stock and share dealer did not impress me favorably. He was fat, he was clean shaven, and he wore gold rimmed eye-glasses. None of these things in themselves are exactly I crimes, but, taken together in a man, surely amount at least to misdemeanor. It was just lunch time, and ho was in the act of de scending the steps of his office, when I caught him, and remarked that I had come for a chat with my old friend, the senior partner. ' No doubt he'd be pleased to pea you, but he's been dead these five years.' ' Then you will have to act for him,' I said, firmly, and, plunging in at once, 1 Tell me,' I demanded, ' whether ladies do gamble on the Stock Exchange to the extent the society papers lead one to suppose ?'

Wages: Gangers, 11a per day; I miners, J 0s per day ; teamsters, j 10s per day ; navvies, 7s 6d per day.'
