THE Charleville Times. SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, 1896. THE HALF HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Times — 1 August 1896
SatcmiaY, Afcusr 1, 1S!I'J. TIIE HALF HOLIDAY. It may bo taken fro:n the result of Thursday evening';* meeting that the half-holiday movement in Charleville has bee:. well accepted l)y the buxi ncsn people of the to-.vn. At first blush it might appear an unreason able request to ask a btisine»M house to suspend trade For half a day each week i:i order that it* employees might enjoy a little recreation.

Sympathy. Sympathy is 0110 of tlia nobleat and most characteristic of tho human passions. Who has not heard the expression, "It make3 my heart bleed to hear a rccital of that woman's wrongs op this man's sufferings "? Sympathy is a natural outcome of a pure, good and bene-, volent spirit; it is an offering which the most lowly can pay to the tribolations of their suffering fellow beings, which the most exalted and wealthy can bestow on their equals and peers in the life of this nether world. A most wonderful sympathetic in fluence exists between the human brain aai all parts of the physical being. - AH-' tho nerves centre in the brain, and no part of the physical organism can be affected or dig organised without immediate knowledge being carried to the brain—the centre of the spiritual being; not the finest point of the finest needle can be applied to any part of the body without the brain immediately be coming cognisant of the fact, so perfect and wonderful is the telegraph-lite co...

Such an event would he death, and death only. Therefore, he urged on hia flying herd with desperation. Craclr upon crack from his long whip, resounded t hrough the hollow wood. The cattle themralvas seem to hear the ominous I sound, and sniff the~i?ow strongly perceptible dfaell o£ burning. Toe roar of the fire came louder, and ever and anon seemed to swell and surge as if urged on by a rough rising blast. The heat was fierce and suffoca...
