' I shall have a pleasant task this afternoon, Miss MacKeith,' eaid Adrian nest day, at lunch. ?*' Mother is driving over to HacUne3s to make some calls, and she has given the children a half holiday. They are going to spend it in the good old English pastime of archery. Have you ever shot with the bow and arrow ?' '?Ho, .never,' said Vida. 'But I have ever thought it must be a delightful amusement.' ' It was more than that in the old timeh,' said Adrian, laughing. 'When we lost the battle e£ Hastings, chiefly through the great superiority of the Norman archers, the value of the bow began to bo understood. Edward the Fourth, Richard tho Third, and other monarchs, passed Acts of Parlia ment encouraging the manufacture and use of the bow, and it was only the introduction of gunpowder which graduully rendered the bow useless as a weapon of war.

Giants of the North. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
Giants of the XTorth. Nowhere will you see such noble specimens of adult humanity as in Stockholm's streets. The feature seems to pervade all classes, though it is not least striking among the nobility. Six feet is a common height for a man here, and really I do not believe I exaggerate in saying that men of six feet three or four inches are as abundant in Stockholm as men of six feet with us. The tallness of the women is just as notoworhy. Tou remark if; Ies3, however, because they are bo well proportioned. They say it is easy to tell by the size of the boots outside the doors which rooms of a hotel are occupied by the Swedish fair. This is a very endurable hit at the Swedish ladies. Though they do wear sixes or Bevens iu shoe leather, no sculptor would find fault with them on professional grounds. Moreover, they have most winsomo complexions, and, of course, blue eyes are nowhere more intensely blue than here. It is comfortable to know (I speak on tho evidonce of one of the pensum...

No title Sydney, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
[Feoh the Press Telegraph Association.] Sydney, Thursday. The scene which occurred in the Assembly last night is the only topic in political circles this morning. The general opinion is expressed that it may tend to the retirement of Mr. Copeland from office. It is not known how the unfortunate affair may affect the Government when the House pro ceeds to vote on Mr. Beid's amendment. The Minister of Lands called on Sir George Dibbs this morning, and subsequently proceeded to his office. The nature of the interview is not known, but it is almost certain a Ministerial statement will be made this afternoon, and the announcement that Mr. Copeland intends to resign will not come as much of a Bixrprise. The Government organ in a Btrong article calls upon Mr. Copeland to resign forthwith. Members on both sides of the House express regret at the occurrence which tends to drag the dignity of Parliament in the dirt. Ministerial supporters loudly condemn Mr. Copeland's conduct, and especially ...

Elizabeth of Austria. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894
Elizabeth of Austria. Soon after the marriage of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria she was visiting a barrack, when above the beating of drums in a distant courtyard she heard sharp cries of pain. ' What is that ?' she aBked. ' Merely soldiers undergoing the punish ing of the whipping-rods,' she was told. The young empress's attention was not to be diverted until she had made further inquiries; then she begged of her husband, as a wedding gift, that this barbaric punishment should be abolished. The new law on military punishments — of Janu ary 15, 18S5— shows that Franz Jo3ef yielded to her entreaties. Subsequently she had the chain ing of prisoners stopped, and many other hardships of soldiers and prisoners lessened. As these incidents indicate, she has a tender heart. The story is told of her that because one of the nurses of her little girl, Marie Valerie, was worried about her aged parents and little children, from whom she was separated, the Empress took a long ride twice a week...

The tipping tables realize a movement we are anticipating through, the intervention of a real movement of the hands )f which we are not conscious. Mind-reading by those who divine by taking your hand where you have hidden anything is a reading of imperceptible motions by which your thoughts are translated without your being con Ecious of them. . . . ; In cases of fascination and vertigo, which are more visible among children than among adults, a movement is begun the suspension of which is prevented by a paralysis of the will, and it carries us to suffering and death.
