REPAIRING HIS FAULT. CHAPTER XXVI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

repairing hes fault. CHAPTER XXVI. Kit grew strangely absent-minded, in the midst of Lydia's pleasant chatter, and at last she became silent. Then Eli remarked : ' It seems to me you took a deal of pains to go to the cattle show, considerin' that there's no rail road direct from your place.' ' Yes, I did j pains enough !' assented Christo pher. 'I don't think I should care to go again, in just the same way.' ' It's a long jauut,' said Eli, for a boy like you. i^ian c wain au tbe way, did ye ? ' ' I walked, when I wasn't lucky enough to get rides,' replied Kit. ' I should think't would have taken ye about all day to get over there and back to my place, let t alone seein' tho show,' Mr, Badgor remarked. ' I didn't — see much of it — the second dav.' faltered Kit. ' What ! do ye mean to say ye wero there both days ?' said Eli, turning half around, and showing his square-built visage, in some surprise. ' I vant to know ! Didn't see me there the first day, did ye?' Kit could not remember...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

FLETCHER'S PILLS never fail to cure INDIGESTION, COSTIVENESS, SOUR BREATH. HEARTBURN, LIVER DISEASE, and KIDNEY COMPLAINTS. FLETCHER'S PILLS and CLEMENTS TONIC are the recognised household remedies of the Aust ralian colonies, and every designing quack tries to trade on their reputation and renown. This is the greatest proof of their merit, and sufferers want to be particular to got the genuine articles as regret and disappointment are sure to follow the use of the thousands of ' All-failing' remedies so freely advertised. The reputation and wide-Bpread use of Clements Tonic and Fletcher's PiilB are the greatest proofs of their appreciation by the public. If they wore not as represented they would havo passed out of memory long ere this, but instead their sale is greater, and they are more esteemed day by day and week by weefr, and thiB emphati cally proves their undisputed supremacy. Listen to no argument from interested parties; demand the genuine articles, and TAKE NO SUBSTI TUTE...

A Visit to Coonamble. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

A Visit to Coonamble. [Bt Raiibleb.] \ have just returned from one of my periodical visits to Coonamble, and I herewith present you with my latest impressions concerning this pro gressive and improving municipality. Like all tho rest of the up-country towns of the colony, this Queen of the Castlereagh ' has latterly passed through a period of unwonted depression, from which, however, it is now slowly but surely recoveriner. Tho hotels annoar fn ? i sufferers at this juncture ; and yet great improve ments are going on in respect to them, and one more (the Victory) has been added to their number. One often marvels at the insistent and persistent vitality of the licensed victualling interest. Nothing seems to afftct it permanently to its hurt. The emergence of boarding-houses, the growth of Good Templary, the settling down and steadying of the floating population, make no perceptible differ ence to its status quo. Other enterprises lapse and come to nought, but this enterprise can pere...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

There is a postman in Lemberg, who, if the prin ciples of legitimacy upheld by our queer little Stuart party were carried out, would be a king. His name is Joseph Jagello, and ha can trace his descent in u direct line from the famous Jagello dynasty, which at one time united the two crowns of Poland and Lithuania.

Novelists of the Past. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

Novelists of the Past. How many novelists upon whose pens the world of readers once huug enraptured are now com. pletely forgotten! In these practical days their style would be laughed at as stilted, their plots as impossible. The school of romance, originated by the success of Horace W'.-ilpole's ' Castle of Otranto,' enjoyed a short heyday of popularity. Mystery and horror were its watchwords — mystery j and horror which would now fail to raise a single hair of the most excitable of craniums. ' The Bravo of Venice,' ' The Castle Spectre,' The Mysteries of Udolplio'— such were the titles of the blood-curdling works that for a time wero eagerly devoured. The taste for this sort of thing was soon satiated, and the names of Mrs. Radcliffe, ' Monk ' Lewis, and Clara Reeve became a mere memory. The novels of Mrs. Aphra Belin and Mrs. Hagwood would now be classed as hopelessly improper. Even the ' Man of Feelinc,' by Henry Mackenzie, has rested undis turbed for several generations, while...

Something Like a Duel. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 February 1894

Something Like a Duel. The last special occasion when Colonel Bowie used his deadly knife was about the year 1830 at Natchez, where he was challenged by a resident of Alexandria, in Louisiana. Twenty friends of the latter went to the ground to see fair play, well knowing that Bowie would be supported by certain of his companions. They numbered as many as the Louisianians. Each party stood 50 yards in the rear of the duellists, making two hostile companies. The seconds and surgeons were stationed in front of these armed lookers-on. The fight was a valley. The adjacent hills were crowded with spectators. There was also a steamer in the river thronged with passengers who had paid heavily to be carried within view of the combat. Tho plan of the fight was the exchange of two shots twice with pistols and to close with knives. At the first fire neither man was hit. At the second the Louisi anian was too quick and took advantage of Colonel Bowie, who waited for the word. Bowie's seeond, sho...

A Brilliant Lady Journalist. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 February 1894

I A Brilliant Lady Journalist, One of the cleverest P.irisvm journalists is a lady. She signs herself Severine in her private notes and newspaper articles— Severine only. Her proper name is not so well known ; her friends and familiars speak of her a3 Severine, dropping the ' Madame.' Severine, lilre most French girls of her means and position, was married. Her first marriage took place when France was racked and torn with inter necine and bloody strife, a fitting setting for, and accompaniment to, the event which blighted and almost blasted hec young life. Her yoke-fellow was a pedant with ' views' on the duties of wives to their husbands ; and in his ardour to press them he was blind to the converse side of the question. Severine was not; and in her frank, open-hearted, humorous manner, shrewdly suggested that she, tbo, had rights. In the tempest of the Commune her large-hearted sympathy for fche weak and fallen threw her on the side of the vanquished insurgents. This led to domes...

Jottings by the Way. [By Pinxit.] The grey dawn had scarce appeared when I heard a tap at my window, and a well-known voice summoning me to awake from my slumbers and prepare for a forty-miles ride. With a ' right you are old man,' I was up like a lamp-lighter, and in less time than it would take a cat to lick her ear I was alongside my friend, who I may mention had a first-class breakfast prepared even at this early hour ; but then he was an old campaigner who had seen service in the Kaffir war, and was up to the ways of getting a snack in the shortest time possible. Chester and Tarragon, noted names of valiant steeds, saddled and ready, we were in the saddle and away just as day waB breaking.

GRAINGER AND FALKINER'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 February 1894

GRAINGER AND FALKINEr's REPORT. The most important features in the produce trade has been the great decline in the price of maize, and the demand for potatoes for seed purposes. Holders of maize are anxious to clear, while on the other hand buyers are reluctant to operate to any extent. We placed 150 bags from 2s 7d to 2s 9d per bushel. There is every prospect of a still further decline, as the new maize from the Northern rivers is coming to hand very freely. There is a slight improvement in lucerne hay ; other sorts dull. Lucerne seed is enquired for, and good samples would meet with ready sale. Wheat is a shade easier, with fair demand. Pigs selling well, good stores in particular. The prospects for next week are good. On Tuesday last wo disposed of the usual supply at the following rates : Butter 4d to lOd per lb., eggs lOifd to Is Id per dozen. Fruit : Grapes :]d to Id per lb ; peaches, large, 2d to lid' per dozen, small varieties from 9d to 2s per box ; plums 2s Gd to 3s ; pear...
