The above heading will, of course, appear to m^st peopln ab the height of absurdity, yet tho absurdity is more apparent than real. It goes without saying that a finish' d musical education in the regular course cannot be had for a 'crown, or even with several hundred additional crowns; but can it be truthfully said that the person with a sufficient knowledge of music to plav accompaniments on the piuno or organ, to all the popular and standard aonus of the dny has no musical education ? Assu redly not. A musical education sufficient to enable one to play correctly accompaniments to the songs sung in the home, frequently gets and gives more pleasure from the modest accomplishment than does many on whose eduoatiou large «un» have been ex pended. . , To the more modest musical education the abort heading ap...

Very Much, to the Poiat. This is tho way in which a girl recently dis posed of a young man : — ' You have asked me pointedly if I can marry you, and I have answered pointedly that I can. I can marry a man wh-- makes love to a different trirl everv month. £ can marrv a man whose main ocoupation seems to be to line up with others in front of the church and com ment audibly on the'people who are compelled to pass along.

Ingersoll's Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 26 January 1898
Ingersoll's Philosophy. The desire to acquire great wealth is a kind of insanity. Neither mendicants nor millionaires are the happiest of mankind. The man at the bottom of the ladder hopes to rise ; the man at the top fears to fall. The one asks, the other re fuses ; and by frequent refusal the heart be comes hard enough and the hand greedy j enough to clutch and hold. ! Few men have intelligence enongh, real greatness enongB, to own a great fortune. As. a rule, the fortune owns them. ' , In judging the rich two things should be considered : How did they get it, and tvhat.are they doing with it ? Was it honestly acquired! Is it being used for the benefit of mankind } The time will pome when the truly intelli^ gent man cannot 'be happy, cannot be satisfied, while milllions of his fellow workmen are hungry and naked.
