WITH A WAR BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
WITH A WAR BALLOON. Cf all the varied military accesBorios which we have, none are more valuable to us than the war balloons. It is stating nothing short of what is a fact when it is declared that a force that has a captive balloon up in tho air, its car tenanted by experienced officers, is absolutely safe against a surprise attack. This has al leauy uueu mauy urnes pruveu. An armeured train, probably an ordi nary engine, with carriages and trucks protected by armour plating, has crept slowly out into tho country invested by the enemy, and at a safe and suitable spot the war balloon has boen inflated and sent up, an operation occupying porhaps about half an hour. The higher tho car goes, of course, the farther the occupant | cau survey the country around, and as he is aided by powerful glasses the immense range of his vision may be imagined. Nor is the use of the war balloon by auy means restricted to the day time. After dark the balloon goes up, and with its powerful electric searc...

HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
HUMOUR. High Time.— A church clock. A neck ot land is out of place on a body of water.

So Helpful. — She : ' I sent a shilling to a young woman for a recipe to make me look young ' What did you get V ' A card saying ?

WESLEYAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
WESLEYAN CHURCH. After a few Introductory remarks, the Speaker said that this Sabbath was in some respects the most impor tant they had seen or were likely to see. It was the lust Sabbath in the old year ; it was the closing .Sabbath of tbe. dying century, and it was the Sabbath immediately preceding the birth of a nation. These three facts comhjned tq ii)ake it njemorable.

CAPTAIN CLOSE. CHAPTER XVIII.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
CAPTAIN CLOSE. By CAPTAIN CHARLES KING. CHAPTER XVI I L— (Continued.) ' Why, whore's Mr. Lambert ?' was her startled query, as she mot him at the gate. Only the moment before as they saw the boat splashing away from the pier had Katesie, with madly beating heart, run from her side to bathe her flushed cheeks and hide in her room till puo heard his voice on the veranda and the first greetings wero over, and thon she would summon up all her saucy spirit and go tripping down to meet him with due nonchalance and levity. She had planned it all, poor child, rehearsed the little couiody time and again, and was stoeling herself to act li6r coquettish role, when her sister's words and Floyd's reply fell upon her astounded ears : i 'He had to go straight on homo. His mother's ill/ And not until thon did Katesie Walton know that she, too, 4 had surrendered.' All things come to him — or her—who knows how to wait; even an absent lover, wvon tho era of peace ?end good will be tween estranged and ...
THE DYING CENTURY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
TUG IHIXG CESTSKf. The century which expires to-night is in many respects the most remark able o£ all the centuries -which have dawned on man. It is remarkable for developments in the scientific world, having well earned the name ' a scien tific century.' In weighing the cen tury Sir A. R. Wallace says that the great scientific discoveries of all prece ing time number 12, including the dis covery of fire and the development of geometry ; while the nineteenth cen tury counts 13 great achievements, cliief among these may be named rail ways, steamships, electric telegraphs, the telephone, gas illumination, electric lighting, photography and the phono graph. To gain some faint conception of the importance of these discoveries, one has only to try to realise what the world to-day would be without them. What a deplorable state we should be in were it not for our railways, our steamships, and our electric telegraphs, to say nothing of many other inven tions. If the next century makes as mu...

PEBSONALITIE& Tho Archbishop of Canterbury h»s in j his keeping the book iu which the cigno tures of all royal couples married in Eng- j land are written. i Sir Thomas Lipton has recently under taken the education of a young Cretan, I Stellio Arghin, who, fer his years, has a marvellous mastery of languages. Though only thirteen years old, he speaks English, French, Italian, Greek, Turkish, and Bussian slightly. Four years ago l'.c was certified as an interpreter by the Italian admiral in command of the Allies of Crete, and similarly recommended by the Seaforth Highlanders. Arghiri ought to have a great future before him.

HER CRADLE HAS SURVIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
HER CRADLE HAS SURVIVED. The infancy of the charming, hapless , Mary Queen of Scots was perhaps the j only peaceful period of her unhappy life. \ The circumstances of her birth were ; pathetic enough, for the young fathor, | James the Fifth of Scotland, lay dying j just as she came into the world. In a handsomely carved cradle tho little | orphan queen was rocked in Linlithgow Palace; and there it remained, long after her life was over, as a memento of her infancy. But in the last century Linlithgow Palace was sacked, during the Jacobite uprising, and tlie carved oak cradle dis appeared. All trace of it was lost until, about sixty years ago, a man who was in search of old oak furniture for an anti quary's colloction happened to go into a tumble-down house near tho ancient ; palace, whero a woman sat rocking a child j in an old cradle with but one rocker remaining. ' What are you doing/ said the man (so the story goes), 'jumblin' your bairn's judgment in a thing like that ?' ' Eh, ma...
Commonwealth Services. PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
Commonwealth Scrviccs. PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. The Rev. Mr. Jennings, preaching on the Commonwealth of Australia last night, took for his text Genesis 1 2, 2nd and 3rd verses, ' I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee and make thy name great, and thou slialt be a blessing, and I will bless them that bless thee and ci^se them' that curse thee.' Australia, Jte said, abounded in the elements that constitute a great nation. First, its natural productions. Its mineral wealth had opened with surprise the eyes of other nations, its coal was sent to every part of the world, and other metals were here in a greater abun- ? dance than the present manufactures of the world could use. It was equallv wealthy from an agricultural stand point, the western lands only requiring the irrigationist to turn them into fertile pastures for our flocks. Se condly, its liberal constitution. Al though the Queen was the acknow ledged head of the Commonwealth, the laws were made and administered b...
SKETCHER JOURNALISTS AND MORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900
SKETOHER JOURNALISTS AND MORALITY. i. ; Mr. Aagosti&e BlrrelTc czitiotsm of the newspaper world has been treated as a jokfi. Perhaps M. Birrell thought it best to present the mattor in'that form, but humour and truth are closely allied, and behind Mr. Bir rell's light raillery solid warning oan be found by those who care to seek tt. Mr. Birrell objeote to his morality and religion being dictated to him by men who regard right aoc wrong, truth and falsehood as marketable commodities. The first law that a man learns in a newspaper office is that a journalist should have no opinions: Con servative leaders are written by gentlemen of strong Radical proclivities. E ^ord tie man writes he feels to be a lie, but that is not bis affair, but his proprietor's. Gentlo men vtho, in their inmost hearts, regard Mr. Gladstone as the curse of the country eit down and gush about him as the Grand Old Mau, and denounce Lord Salisbury, who they think, is only doing the richt. Gentle men rather ...
