Lady Guides' en Wheels. Like evorybody olao, the lady guide now rides a cycle. And a considerable aid to business she has found it. " In the ordinary -way thero is not a very extonsivo demand for lady guides," explained a most attractive member of that profession, with whom a " Hub" representative was recently privileged to enjoy a chat. " And when I saw how society was taking to cycling, I concluded I had better follow suit. So I learned to rido ; designod and made my own coBtumo; and, what was moro difficult of achieve ment, managed to buy a bicycle, as dainty a little bicycle as I could procure, because, as you know, amongst better-class people appearanco goes a vory long way. " Novices are the best patrons of the lady cycling guide ; peoplo who can rido, but who have not acquired tho assurance necessary for ridiug afar in their own country. Being fairly woll known, I had not long to wait after I had announced that I had become a wheelwoman. A lady wrote to mo to say that, her hu...

CHAPTER II. THE UNKNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

Like a stroke of electricity, this vibrating voice had touched Iiis heart. He turned toward the enrolled volunteers, who were talking among themselves. Humiliated y.t having been held in check by a single individual, they were now consulting together with the vMble intention of regaining their lost ground. They were eight to one; three were armed with guns, the remain der with pistols and pikes. Maurice wore only his sabre'. The contest could not be an equal one. Even the woman com prehended this, as she held down her head and uttered a deep sigh. Ah to Maurice, with his brows knitted, liis Hp disdainfully eurlud, and his sabre drawn from its scabbard, he r.tood ir resolute, fluctuating between the senti ments of a man and a citizen, the one urging him to protect this woman, the other counseling him to give her up.

Night had fallen on l^aris, not boistorous uiul stormy, but cold, dump and foggy. Paris itself at tliat time was not the Paris of our day; flittering at night with thousands of reflected lights, the Paris of busy promenades, of lively chat, with its riotous suburbs, the scene of audacious quarrels and daring crime, but a fearful, timid, busy city, whose few and 'scattered inhabitants, even in cross ing from one street to another, ran con cealing themselves in the darkness of the alleys, and ensconcing themselves be hind their porto-eoc.heres, like wild beasts tracked by the hunters to their lair. As we have previously said, it was the evening of the 10th of March, 1793. A few remarks upon the extreme situation which had produced the changed aspect of the capital before we commence stat i...
