VARIETIES. EFFECTED A CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

VARIETIES. EFFECTED A CHANGE. I The manager of a provincial theatre waB much ' annoyed by complaints con cerning the aggra-ating height of ladies' hats in his audiences.. He made no boisterous observation ; he gave no stern orders — not he. He merely printed in large letters on his playbills the master r.wvw wt gvuiuo ; — 'The Manager begs that all good looking ladies will remove their hats for the accommodation of the rest of the audience. The aged, the bald, and the plain are not expected to comply with tbi6 request/ From that auspicious night the soaring bonnet and the mountainous hat were in visible at that wise manager's theatre.

FRAGILE BUT PRICELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

FBAGILE BUT PRICELESS. Have you a good collection of Sevres porcelain ? If so, you have a possession as valuable as it is fragile, for this ex quisite production is capable of command ing exceedingly high prices. Cups, saucers, and bowls go off readily at one hundred pounds apiece, or more. At a sale, a pair of Dubarry vases was vuwj puruuutiea xur eignroen nunarea ana fifty guineas, while cups and saucers realised one hundred and fifty guineas. Single plates have been sold for more than two hundred pounds each. PerhapB a record price was reached when, some time ago, an enthusiast paid the enormous sum of ten thousand pounds for a set of three jardinieres which were once the property of royalty.

WHEN CHARGERS GO BY RAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

WHEN CHARGERS GO BY RAIL. When the horses of our soldiers are taken by rail, the floors of the trucks conveying them are sprinkled with sand to give the animals a foothold, instead of straw being used. This is done for fear of sparks from the engine ; and for the same reason, on a long -journey, the horse is fed from a nosebag, and all hay or other forage that has dropped is carefully removed. As a rule, the horse travels with its harness on, but when the journey will take more than six hours, the harness is removed. Horses are frequently very timid of railway trains, and for this reason a steady old stager is selected to lead the way to the truckB. With a nervous horse the man leading it is always specially directed not to look round, but to go straight ahead to the train. If the man leoks round the horse often becomes suspicious.

SELF-CONDEMNED. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

SELF-CONDEMNED. Railway people have an arrangement by which they can register the speed of a train. It looks like a steam gauge, and is connected with the axle, so that the pointer registers the number of revolu* tions every minute. There are so many revolutions to the mile, and by an in genious arrangement the number of miles an hour is shown upon the dial. The apparatus is expensive as well as delicate. The late Jay Gould, the American rail way magnate and millionaire, was one of the first to adopt it, and shortly after a register waB placed in his private car, his friend, Mir. Russell Sage, was making a journey with him and inquired what it was. Mr. Gould explained the mechanism and the usefulness of the machine with great care. Mr. Sage was silent for a moment, and then, looking up, inquired — ? Does it earn anything ?' ' No, I think not/ said Mr.,GouId, with a smile. 4 Does it save anything ?' ?No/ ' Then I would not have it in my car/

The Temples of Ancient Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

The Temples of Ancient Egypt. J .Mr Frank Walker in the j ' Australian Independent,' j speaking of Karnak, a square ; mile of ruins, says : — ' The j material used in the construc tion of ancient Egypt temples was a fine sandstone, very similar in appearance to the building material used in ap pearance to tlie building n:a terial used in Sydney at the present day. AU the surfaces, inside and out, shrine, pillars, and pylons, and even the roof slabs, were covered with hieroglyphics, large and small. These inscriptions may be ; briefly classified as follows : — 1. The King, who is always represented as towering head and shoulders above his sub jects and enemies, offering sacrifices to the gods. 2. The armies marching to war. 3. Tlie battlefield, where the King is represented slaying his enemies with astonishing vigour and success. 4. Victory, and the flight of the enemy. 5. Prisoners marching in chains ,to Egypt, holding up their heads in supplication to their conquerers. G. The offer...

CAPTAIN CLOSE. CHAPTER XVII.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

CAPTAIN CLOSE. by captain charles king. I CHAPTES XVII. — (Continued.) Here Dolan flung himself from his horse, tossed the reins to one of the men, saying, ' Hold all you can. Lead 'em to the hollow yonder/ and, kneeling, drove a long-range shot at some gaudily-painted warriors clustered about some object half-way up the opposite slope. A pony plunged and reared, and a yell of rage anu ueuance went up. Man after man, nearly all the little squad sprang to earth and opened brisk fire on every Indian within rifle-shot, and every man for himself, following the general lead of Lambert and Dolan, strode forward up the gentle ascent towards a dingy mound, half earth, half logs, about a quarter of a mile ahead of them, until Dolan bhouted right and left, ' Cease firing ! Stop your noise! Listen]' And, borne down the wind, faint and feeble, yet exultant, there came the sound of distant cheers, and the rescuers knew they they had not risked their lives in vain.

POETRY. GOOD-BYE TO THE CRADLE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

POETRY. GOOD-BYE TO THE CRADLE. Good-bye to the cradle, the dear wooden cradle, Tbe ivide hand of Progress has thrust it Hide ; No more to its motion, o'er Sleep's fairy ocean, Our play-weary wayfarers peacefully elide; No more by the rhythm of slow-moving rocker Their sweet, dreamy fancies are fostered and fed; No more to low singing tho cradle goes swinging — The child of this eza is put into bed ! Good-bye to the cradle, the dear wooden cradle — It lent to the twilight a mystical j charm ; When bees left the clover, when playtime was over, ! How safe seemed this shelter from danger and harm ; How soft seemed the pillow, how distant the ceiling. Bow weird were the voices that whis pered around ; What dreams would come flocking as, rocking and rocking, We floated away into slumber profound. Good-bye to tke cradle, tbe old wooden cradle, The babe of the day does not know it by sight ; When day leaves the border, with system and order The child goes to bed, and we put out the light. ...

The visit of the Rev. A. W. j Brough, to Christ Church, New Zealand, has been a great source of inspiration, and as one special result, Miss J. Inglis, M.A., who has been for ten years a member of Trinity Church, has offeredlier self to the London Missionary Society for work in the Coim batoor district. It is hoped that friends in the Church will be able to guarantee the greater part, if not the whole, of Miss Inglis' salary for five years. Tlie whole of the family were well-known in Hay some years ago. Bot flies threaten to become, a serious trouble in the Warren district. Mr. Dyce warned ? his neighbours that he had dis- 1 covered bot's eggs upon his horses some weeks ago, and | now several report trouble with their horses from this cause. Mr. P.

The Imperial Troops. London, Nov. 13. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900

The Imperial Traitps. London, Nov. 13. The departure of the Im perial representative corps from Waterloo station yesterday was simultaneous with the arrival in the metropolis of Sir Red vers Buller. The Natal commander-in-chief was anx ious to see the Australian guard of honour, but the crush on the station was too great to enable him to do so. The men are an exceptionally fine lot phj'sically, besides being selec ted for smartness and good conduct. The average height of the Grenadiers is Gft 4 Jin., and among them is Private M'Cullocli, height Gft. 9in., the tallest man in the army. The gunners, too, are very big men. The 21st Lancers will lie sure io arouse interest in Australia, for every man in the detachment rode in the famous charge atOnidurman. Captain | Gordon Wilson, late of Mafe king, is in command of the de tachment of the Household Cavalry forming part of the 'guard of' honour. Lady Sarah Wilson will not accompany, him.
