The Far East, [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 January 1898

The Far East, Latest cable news rospeoting affairs in the East is of a disquieting nature. The British Government is strongth oning the fleet in Chinese waters by the addition of the twin-screw battle ships, Hannibal and Illustrious, of 14,000 tons each. The French fleet is to be increased bj' tho addition of the cruisers Bruix and Yauban. Japan is reported to be despatching nine warships to China, probably to Wei-hai-wei, and the Government is taking activo steps for the mobilisation of the army. Nearly all the British newspapers are commenting upon the gravity of the relations between Great Britain and Russia, in consequence of tho latter Power endeavouring to prevent China from accepting Britain's offer of n loan of £12,000,000 to pay off the Japanese war indemnity. The Standard says that either Rus sia or Great Britain must give way, and boldly aflirms that if Russia be permitted to coerce China into reject ing the British terms " a crucial trial of strength will be inevitable."...

To Country Correspondents; - Now that the Christmas sen&on is over, will country correspondents be good enough to send along' early in each week a budget of news from the localities in which they live. The publication of items from every centre of population in the district accomplishes much gooij in many direc tions. It draws public attention to th,e place from whence the items come; it causes the authorities to tako note of public grievances and to satisfy local requirements; and, last, but not least, it serves to prove that the place is not destitute of some person possessed of spirit and of sufficient knowledge of caligraphy to write a letter to the district paper. Will country corres-" pondeucs please take note ?

Arrangements are being made by   the Railway Departments of this colony and Queensland, by which the mail trains from both Sydney and Brisbane will arrive at Wallangarra 25 to 40 minutes later than at present. This arrangement will probably affect the times of departure of these trains from intermediate stations. A man, whose name is unknown, was shot dead in a house in Victoria Street, Darlinghurst on Monday morning, and the landlady, Margaret North, has been arrested on suspicion of causing his death. A bus capsized on the Newtown- road, Sydney, on Saturday evening, and several passengers were more or less severely injured. The cause of the accident was the breaking of an axle which caused the king bolt to break also. Lord Hampden expresses himself as in sympathy with the desire of the people to keep a white Australia, but thinks there is no immediate danger of an incursion of coloured races. On Monday Platt-Betts beat his previous 10 mile Australasian cycling record ...

It may be easily kept clean, and hot dishes will not injure it. i' ... Remember to use borax or ammonia, .'instead of soap in washing blankets. This^ will keep them soft, and help to • preserve. the brightness of the coloured stripes. . • ' Remember that sand and white lead make a cement almost as hard as stone. -It will stop leaks, and may be used for mending .where many other cements fail. . Remember that the best method of .cleaning: 'greasy dishes after render ing: lard' -or tallow is to heat them and .then rub with cornmeal or shorts." You will be surprised to see how easily they will wash. The meal used will be good for the chickens. ..

It was related/ by,, the wife of a well-known savant who" coifies.." up to London from a not far disfant suburb. His wife is in the habit of writing down for him a list of his engagements, and as he had on two -oceasions forgotten to take dinner, she on his latest visit wrote on the top of her list of his day's work, " Don't forget your dinner." WTien he had forgotten it, he' had returned. home miserable and with a.depressing headache ; so she-was joarticular'to iiftptfess the meal upon' his ^memory; Beginning her list of his: day's work in. town, she. also ended it with '•Don't forget your dinner."

Irish-American Ignorance. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

Irisli-Amcrican Ignorance. The " Boston Pilot," the principal organ in America of outraged Ireland, tis,. in. the habit of regaling' its readers with inac curacies about England, but they are generally political rather than literary. The following is quite up to their stand ard for correctness •— " 'T^iica Joko,' the English humorous weekly recently started by Jerome K. .Terome, hns died an untimely death. Mr. Jerome's humour is of a kind to sadden an undertaker and cast a blight upon the hilarity of an Arizona lynching-bee. ' Ltlca Joko' was hastened to its doom by Mr. Jerome's artist, Harry Furniss, who lias hardly the drawing capacity of a porous plaster." Most of our readers will not need to be told that Mr. Jerome never had anything to do with " iJka Joko," and that " Lik.i .Toko," so far from being dead, has swal lowed the " Pall Mall Budget," and taken the new title of the " Now Budget."— " Literary World."

Glimpses of London and London Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

Glimpses of London and London Life. (By the Editor of Great Thoughts.) An eagor artist journeyed far, To paint Niagara in ita prido ; But when ho marked its noisy war, And looked upon its rolling tide ; And heard its swirling waters hiss, Beneath him in the dread abyss ; Abandoning his futilo dream, He cast his pencil in the stroam. Thus he who fain would sketch thb flow, Of that great cataract which rolls Through London, charged with weal or woe, To millions of immortal souls ; Their levered dreams, their sordid cares, Their crimes, and passions, and despairs ; May well in impotent dismay. THE reflective mind, especially it religion has stirred it by its solemn issues, approaches with awe a subject like London. To it the very name of the world'B greatest capital is charged with solemn suggestiveness. There is a throb of doom in it, a sound as of low and ominous thunder echoed in the deep places of eternity. As we utter it, im mortal millions crowd through the portals of tho imagina...

MISCELLANEOUS COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

Ohe-half Your Body Cleverer Than the Other.—You might find it hard to believe that one side of your body is far and away cleverer than the other ; but that this is so lias boon scientifically proved over and over again. And, oddly enough, your clever half is not the right aide, as might bo imagined, but the left. It isn't going a great deal too far to say that a man might be dazzlingly brillia'nt'on one side of him, and a hope less lunatic on the other. To begin with, the left side of your brain is twice aa smart and alert aB the right. It takes its impressions more- quickly ; indeed, the brain often has to flash thom on to the left to save it from being uninformed altogether. Then the sense of touch is far more delicate and accurate in the left hand than in the right; whiie everybody walks more firmly on tho left foot than on the right. Following this still further, one seldom hear3 of a persori going deaf in the left ear, while any amount of people lose their hearing in the right ...
