At abont the same that yioiefc Tremaine was struggling through the snow-drifts, iu Lea: Wood, and, finally, sinking helpless therein, Harold Netherly and Sidney Pol warth, alias Earnest Brydone, were, reclin ing on luxurious, couches and smoking aromatic cigars on each side of a blazing fire, in a splendidly-furnished apartment of the Morley Hotel., There was amber and ruby-coloured wine, in richly-cut decanters, upon the table near them. The. wax lights of two brilliant chandeliers, multiplied in costly mii;i;ors, created a softly-lustrous atmosphere above and around them.; and the rich damask window-curtains falling in heavy folds, amidst which the. reflection, of the fire flames leapt and played, so comple tely shut out th? dark, stormy night, that the hovyl.ing March wind; sounded, when listened for, scarcely louder than the sigh ing of a summer breeze.

Select Poetry. ON MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 14 June 1884
Stlcct |§0CtV]T, OU. MUSIC. ' I love to trace where music dwells^ In village chimes, in evening bells, In gentle words, in kindly wiles, In loving hearts and tender smiles; In graceful forms, in gentle eyes Where lpve is warm and never dies; In forest, wild, in silent glen, Far from the haunts of busy men; In shady grove, by lake and wood, "VYheye heartless forms have never stop#,. Theresa, mi\sic in the gentle breeze That fans the lofty cedar, trees. There's music in the rocky hall. There's music in the waterfall. There's, music on. a summer's day, When all around is, bright and gay. There's music iu a. winding stream. There's music, in a. happy dream. There's music wafted to the. shore, On summer eve from boatsman's. oaar. There's music in the Sabbath bell, That sounds from distant woodland dell;. There's, music, on the voice of those Who some kind tele of love discloso, Who bid our cares and sorrow cease', And gently murmur words of peace.
Original Poetry. ON THE DEATH OF MR. H. K. TATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 14 June 1884
(©nqimii ftoctvn. ON THE DEATH OF MR. II. K, TATE. No word m oiir languago such sorrow can bring— No event in our liyes moro distress— Than the dolorous, dismal visitant L)eath, Whoso attack we all fain would repress. Behold hitn—grim, ghastly, throughout the wide world, Young mid old, rich and poor are his prey; Ah ! how true is his aim; and the arrow when hurled. Strikes down young ones as well as the grey. In our midst, Death, cruel Doath, thou hast fired thy dart. And a friend has been hurried away—: A friend we all loved, Ah, too fond yet to part, ' Has been called to return to the clay, His blaud smilo we all miss ; and the voice we all loy'd, On this earth wq shall ne'er hear again ; His heart here among us no longe? shall thrill In our joys, or shed grief o.'er our pain. One. seat is forsaken—the form we remem ber— And pur cup. with keen soitoay o'erflows; Those spirits so buoyant—possessed, witli ' the ember Of mirth which in youth wildly glo.ws— Now are restless—no more t'...
