Beside the bed— ha f roc hidden in' her hands — knelt a woma% plainly a very young woman: she waV-*o slight in figure ana contour. She knelt eo lone, it almost seen A the, too, must be atleep, or had lost consciousness been turned1 to atone even. But at length something ronseu her. It was the whine of a dog under the win dow, a dismal sort of half moan half vail as fur a tat master : an ominous sound enough, moat of all at that hour of the night. To the girl— for suoh ehe was— it plainly came as a warning and omen that she oould not but heed. She rose from her knees and bent over the bed. Something bright gleamed in her hand —not her wadding ring....

A B-aotlemro xcrived with ?--? bride-elect to undergo the civil cere moar. ?Whore,' aaked the official, ?ie tbe certificate of your ialhoi's demise P' ? My. dear sir,' replied the) bridegroom, ' there is my father, alive and well.' 'But,' retorted the official, 'your mother ie dead, and she is returned in the lists as a widow.' The bridegroom explained delicately that his rmther had run away from his father and preferred to give her self out as a widow. - Hut,' he con tinued desperately, my father i* cer tainly alive.' ' lit has no right to be. Officially, be is dead. I cannot many you without a certificate of his demise.' Rather a hard cue. Dul the othtt is still harder.

ON PINSTICKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 February 1905
ON PIN3TICEINQ. I see that there is a question s*k* - »s to whether there is any trick in running a pin into the fleshy part of the arm. 1 oan aaaure you that there is no trick whatever. When i was in the army years ago, Z used often to «stcnlsh the mess by hamtnering a pin into my leg. All yon have to do is to get a pin oot too long, double your knee up as tight aa pnuiDie, aoa uammer we yia iuw *»u museuiar part about six Inches from the bend of the knee. You only fed the prick very slightly. After that you feel nothing, ana the pin is ia your leg up to the head. Draw it out quickly when yoa do draw it ont. A I have stumbled apon some facte relating to the secretion of pins ia the human body which seem to be extremely curious. The parson concerned wbj one ELitty Hudson, a girl in humble ciroumstances, a native of Nottingham, where she was bora in J 7 05. When quite a child ehe was employed to tidy ' and sweep ont the pariah chu*ch, and she was eapesLally enooureged to collect all ...

THE BUSKMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 February 1905
tks Bvmm. God, the day He fashioned them, Toiled to make them true, Hand and head and heart of them, Blood and bone and thew ; Set them in the foremost rank Giants* work to do. God, the dayHefashioned them, Then, when He had fashioned them, Tried them for His pride ; Sent His droughts and chastened them, Sent His flames to chide ; Sent His floods to harry them Wasting far and wide. But the strength He set in them Braced His fighting brood ; Bravely face to face with Him, Shoulder-firm they stood— Then the God who fashioned them Knew His work was good. So, when He has gathered them, God will not forget ; High at the right hand of Him He shall have them set ; Paying thus for pride of them Seven-fold His debt ! —Wat H. Ogilvie.
