The French in the Central Soudan. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

Ih3 French in the Central Soudan. Owing no doubt to the widespread attention which Anglo-French rivalry oil the Niger is receiving from the public in this country, a French expe dition which may have the most far reaching results has been suffered to slip quietly away to Africa almost un noticed. We refer (says the Pall Mall Magazine) to the mission of'M. de Be hagfc, the well known explorer, who aims at establishing French influence in the vast states of W'adai, Kanem,. and Baghirmi, hitherto little troubled by the ambitions of European Powers. The task which M. de Behagli:. has undertaken is a particularly ardu ous as well as a particularly dangerous one. It is, in a measure, the comple ment of De Brazza's work of penetra lion along the Sanga towards Adamrtwa and the Binue, and the natural sequel of M. Gentil's courageous effort to lauch his aluminium steamer upon the unexplored wnteis of Lake Tchad. The regions lying to the north, eastj-and south east of Lake .Tcliad have not bee...

Made in England [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

Made in England Wo have had occasion fo poiut 'out before now that if we import largoly from Germany, tho Germans buy largely from us and that the trade be tween tho two countiies is a reciprocal benefit. The British Consul ot Mannheim confirms tho statement in. a recent report. " In all large towns in Germany," he says, " one sees an in creasing variety of articles of English make. Especially noticeable has this become within the last few years, and may be regarded ns smyptoraatic of the.growiug wealth of the country and its progress. Price with a rapidly multiplying elass of people is no longer the primary consideration; novelty, tasto and quality also com mand attention, and oven in country towns luxury nnd comfort are begin ning to be undorftood nnd de-sired.

PART XVII. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

PART XVII. The fat one had discovered that they we e tarrying at Naples, and had hastened from Nice,where she had sometimes resided, to welcome Ethel. There was sincerity in her eager delight when she met Mrs. Gordon. She kissed her a dozen times ; then held her at arm's length, and looked long into Ethel's beauti ful face, her own eyes beaming with affec tion. As we have seen, this singular woman had but one love in hev nature, and of this Ethel was the object. " We are living at Nice, dear," she said. " A beastly place ; but Simon is sd bad, - and . the doctors won't let him stay in Eng land." v . "Is Mr. Steel so very ill, then?" asked Ethel. " Dying, my dear," said the fat one, with the most perfect calmness. "He can't live another twelve month, poor little man," and Mrs. Steel took off her gloves.

A Woman's Way. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 29 January 1898

A Woman's Way. 'A woman'is a good deal like a" cat,' said the philosopher in the neligee shirt. 'You can never tell which way they are going to jump.'' 'Wherefore?'asked the man in the"alpaca coat. 'I was thinking of an incident: that hap pened over on the West Side a while ago. There is a row of houses in the street up there that is rather close together. One day a man who lives along in the middle of the row thought that he would have his house painted, and he straightway went down town and hired the painters to do the job. His roof was one of the fancy-shingle affairs and he'wanted it painted red. when the time came to paint the roof the three men who were working on the job fixed a ladder upon it and took places 011 the ladder, one at the peak, one in the middle and one at the eavea. They were painting along, when suddenly the ladder gave way and they were thrown into the air. The man at the middle had gone down to the eaves, and the combined weight of the two tipped the ladder ...
