MAN AND WOMAN. SOME DIFFERENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 22 August 1896

MAN AND WOMAN. SOME DIFFEBENCES. The following are some of the differences in physical development between men and women, that appear to have a striking application. Most of them are explicable by difference in constitution, and the others by the very apparent difference in the conventional habits of the sexes. Very few yonng women can * it more than 200 pound*, and very few yonng j:; U mora than 400. Very few yonng women measure more lLaa 22 inches around the waist, and very few y> ung men less than that. The difference in this respect between the sexes is considerable. Only a few lung* possess the capacity of a gallon. Host.youngimncan inhale about seven-eighths of a gallon, and the average young woman about tbree-fourtlia. Few young women have lungs whose capacity is a full gallon, and few yonng men six quart*, but the per cent, is not more than two or thne. The difference in the weight of young women and yonng men is not as mnch as is generally supposed. . There is a. differe...

A WORD WITH IDEALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 22 August 1896

A. WOBD WITH IDEALISTS. (By WILLIAM LANK, in the Oosme Monthly.) " Nobody should be ander any mis understanding as to the imperfection of human nature in Cosme, and every where else. The most that any man can do is to try and be as good as he can, and veiy often forget to try, par ticularly in little things. It is by these little things that people mostly hart each other. And as it is easier to : make the big sacrifices than the little I ones, so it is easier to do most things than to avoid thoughtless talk; com* mon, ordinary, eve*yday sort of folk such as ire are in Cosme are not always at angelic pitch. Moreover, sense of the perspective of things varies in different people. What seems a serious thing to one seems a trumpery thing to another. Consequently there is always more or less of those storms in teacups which are ridiculous to all but, those whose' eyes are wetted. Everybody knows that the happiest married life falls short of the ideal (Feast of reason and flow of ooulit i...

VIVID AND REALISTIC PICTURES & PAST. Selected from ih^ Diary and the Correspondence of an . Old Colonist. ' PEARCE'SPLOT. (Iff TWELVE PARTS-) PART VIIL The loss of the burthen made a great difference to Pearce, and as he got through the cemetery and began to climb Mount Wellington the noise be hind got fainter and fainter. At last it ceased, altogther, and almost exhausted he threw himself down on a rock and rested. As he looked below m the direction of the town he could see numerous lights flitting about, and it seemed as if half the population must be out searching for something. The robbery of the treasury-chest j had, in fact, been discovered, and it was such a serious matter that the governor himself was taking part in the search after the culprit or culprits, for the officials thought there must be at least three or.four persons concerned in the extraordinary theft. Word of the out rage on the government was sent to the barracks, and detachments of soldiery were muster...
