WAY OF THE WORLD PART XIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
WAY OF THE VVOLiLD. ' PAET XIII. Among the many admirers who gathered urounil the vaiu woman was this Mr, Edwards. He was then a young man, coarse enough, as he is now, and by no means a gentleman, but possessed of in dominitable auda.ity, which, in American society in particulars better than fine man ners or a handsome person. This man, cool sensual, and cunning, had early counted on the ruin of Mrs. Harrington. An IllilUl UtlflSCll, 1IC WHO «*VU-LU WJBV 11*^1 beauty and talent — she had both poor creature — would serve his purse ; and for this reason, as well as from desire, he set about coolly and deliberately, to accom plish her ruin. How he contrived to gradually wean the poor foolish creature from all sense of duty, I know uot ; how in his coarse manner and commonplace appear ance he did not suggest a comparison which alone might have warned and saved her, I cannot till. I only know that one day we were stunned and most cruelly' grieved to hear that the forlorn sinful creature...
AMERICAN SARCASM [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
. AMERICAN SARCASM. The San Franciso Argonaut, commenting on the alleged democracy of Australia, derides our hankering after Ihe British nobleman thusly -.—'Lord Brassey has scandalised Mel bourne society. The first time he occupied the vice-regal box at the theatre, he noticed sitting in the gallery several sailors from his y»cbt,»nd terrible to relate, he nodded familiarly to tbtm.' In this respect Melbourne only follows the example of the eastern states of America, but it is extremely doubtful whether Australian ladies would act like their Transatlantic «* lens and invite Yvette Guilberte, the singer ol disreputable French chansons, to ln«ir

Submarine Navigation. Holland, the inventor of the sub tnarin? torpedo boat which is now be ing built for the Uuifcrd States Govern ment, says if the boats are a success, and he lias unbounded faith in ihi'm, they will be used for carrying passen gers between Dover and Calais. Tbe claim mad*1 by the inventor is that Lhej are absolutely safe and free from motion ; wither fogs nor siorma can have anv effect on them, and thnrp will be r.o possibility of collision, as they will sail far below the largest ocean liners. The passage across the Channel can be made aloug the bot tom of the sea in two hours, Holland claims, and with compressed air the. ventilation will be perfect. Great things are expected from these boat?, and if they realise the expectations of their inventor modern warfare till be completely revolutionised.

The Wheat Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
The Wheat Harvest. The Government Statistician's official estimate of the whe.it crop places the har vest not far abort of 10 million bushels, not withstanding the effects of the drought which blighted the prospects of what, in the month of October, bade fair to be an no u1u4lly.ber.vv yield. The complete returns ihow that the actual area sown to wheat trai 1,191,309a, wbioh is an increase of 16 per cent, over last year's area. Of this it is es 938,25!., gh-iog a total yield of 9,745,000 bua, or an average of about 10J bus per acre. Tbe area cut for bay is very large, viz., 253,05Sa, and it is safe to Bay that 150,000a of this was intended for grain, and bad the earlier prospects been realised the result would have been a yield of 14 million bush els. About 7,900.OO0bus will be r. quired for consumption daring 189S, and 1,500,000 bus for teed, so that it would appear that not only has the colony produced sufficient for its own requirements, but there is a ema.ll surplus.

Our Sydney Letter. [From our Svdnev Contributor.] A certain Mr. Irwin, mine manager, from Coolgardie, is just now in Syd ney.

WORSE AND WORSE [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
WORSE AND WORSE *' BY A GRUMPY MAN. In these days of New Women acting as doctors, and Old Women acting as justices, legislators, and parsons, it is do wonder that as a member of the old-faBhioned school, I am a grumpy man. When re proached with the fact that the old school was also slow, I come out with the biting , retort that the new school ie ' fast.' There is ii keen sarcasm about that that I relish. I try to chuckle inwardly, but a Buasm which my enemies attribute to gout pulls me up witn a round turn — I nave to lorego tne chuckle, I am content to admit all the wonderful achievements of this rushiug, brilliant age, but I ask myself— I can't ask others, be cause they are too busy — what does it all cud to? Is the life of the average man to-day happierby these discovries of science ? He cau flash through space at over a mile a minute in an express train ; he can go at some phenomenal rate on an absurd, perilous looking invention which I believe is known familiarly as a bike ; he...

Short Story. ~. A Tale of Alsac?e. The caiTirtgo was going at a terrific pae»\ The horses, (mutually excited by the white wine tljat had been poured over their oats, dashed through tiie air Which.. whittled past their cars. Their hoots resounded loudly ou the hard frozen road. The two carriage lanterns shout' in the night like the slowing eyes of some huge prehistoric monster. This mad, furious course in the dark something mysterious, sinister, and all the more so, perhaps, that It was taking ?- place in the aiiuw terrible— the terrible - year wheu the Germans were in Alsace. The carriage, like a vessel in distress on a raging sea, oscillated from left to ' right and from right to left. When the vehicle, which had been fly ing down the slopes of Otirot, raced through the Tillage, passing like an ex press train the houses with their litlte low roofs, ou which the moon east a sil very light, the good women, suddenly frightened, made the sign of the cross with a trembling of the knees ...
Acting the Lowest Art. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 8 January 1898
Acting the Lowest Art. Under the title of -Players on Play Vctins ' Mr A. H. Wall publishes m his new magazine, 'The ShaUspearlan.' tie scholarly though perhaps mistaken in dictment preferred by Fanny Kembl. against acting as a high art. She wrote : — '? I am a living and breathing witness that a person may be accounted a good actor, and to a certain degree deservt the title, without time or pains of any sort being expended upon the acquisition -f the reputation. ? But on other grounds ,^t!n-r has nlwavs auDeared to me toix. the very lowest of the arts, admitting that It deserves to be classed among them at all. which I am not sure it does, in the first place, it originates nothing : it lacks, therefore, the grand faculty which all other arts possess— creation. An actor is at the best but a filler-up of an outline designed by another— tho expounder, as it were, of things wiiich .another has set down ; and a fine piece of acting is at best, in my opinion, a fine translation.

A Smart Stamp Collector. Stamp collectors nave quite a ioik lore of their own, but a London corre spondent doubts whether the following true story of the 'cuteness of one of the kings of philately Is known to most of them, says the ' Birmingham Dally Post.' It goes back to Uie time when there was not such a boom In stamps as there is nowadays, and shows the advan tage of being first In any field. Just before the Zulu war there was in Mauri tius a gentleman who had preserved from his school days the taste for collecting stamps. He was a friend of the local postmaster, as was perhaps only natural. Learning from him one day that there was to be a. clearance' of the old stock, he got permission to collar the unused ' block' of stamps and other valuables of the kind which were about to be thrown away ae waste. This suggested to him that there might be similar spoils at other of our smali colonial offices. He ' moved round,' acquiring them without difficulty. When one learns that a single...
