Mr. Benting turned to the judge. ' This is hardly the place to talk with him ; and if you've no objection, I'd like to see him a few minutes in your office.' 'Certainly,' said the judge, with a despairing thought of his dinner.

A Duel to the Death. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

A Duel to the Death. It is well known that during tho American revo lution there frequently existed groat bitterness between the families of the Whigs and Tories, aud that, where the state of the country was such as to give neither parly mnro than a temporary ascend ancy, these antagonistic* feelings sometimes vented themselves in open hostilities. In one of the upper counties of Virginia there lived two families, named Belcher and Mason, who during tbe progress of the war, became deadlv enemies— the former being staunch Whigs and tho latter Tories. The family of Belcher consisted of five persons — father, mother, two sons and a daughter. The senior Belcher was a gray-headed man, verging on 50, very lame in one leg ; his two sons were stout young men, in the prime and vigor of life, and his daughter was a comely lass of 20. At tho breaking ont of the war tho sons enlisted in the American army, and were offered commissions which they accepted — the elder a captaincy and the younger s...

A Fast Train. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

A Past Train. ' I cannot tell a lie, father,' etc. — -3. Washington. ' I had my first ride upon a lightning express train last week,' Baid the New York drummer. 'During two hours of the trip the momentum was terrific. How did I know it ? Proof was plentiful and convincing. The telegraph poles passed us so rapidly I could liken them only to the teeth of a fine-tooth comb. The wires I couldn't see at all. The speed was such that the eye was unable to fasten itself to a near-by object of anything less than six inches in diameter. Closely behind us was a cloud of dust as thick as the proverbial London fog. In this cloud were mixed stones and pieces of rock that had been literally pulled from their earthen or stony sockets by the suction created by the train. They tumbled around in mid air and knocked together, the sound resembling that made by castanets. ' As we ran through one town at eighty miles an hour, we tore a big, jagged piece of rock from the end of a tunnel through which we ha...

Failure of a Labour Colony. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

Failure of a Labour Colony. The Labour colony at Leongatha, Victoria, has proved a failure. It was, indeed, impossible (says the Melbourne Age) that any other result could attend the scheme. The colony is situated in an unsuitable locality. The land is too heavily timbered to permit of its being easily cultivated, in addition to which there is no opportunity for the settlers to earn money for the support of themselves and families whilst the crops are growing by worKing tor mie surrounding farmers, in order that a labour colony may be successful it should be located on good land, requiring little clearing, and in close proximity to a farming population, so as to enable the settlers to support tho colony by working for farmers during tho ploughing and harvesting seasons. Tho im mediate stoppage of the Leongatha labour colony, which was inaugurated by the Mayor of Melbourne and a number of philanthropic gentlemen, will be due to the cessation of private subncriptions. It was organised...

Money No Object, ' I want a position,' ho said as he entered the office. ' I'm sorry,' said the head of the firm, ' but we really have no need of any men at present.' ' Oh, that's all right,' said the caller oheerfully, 'I don't expect any salary. In fact, I'm willing to pay for the privilege of having employment.' 'What kind of a position do yon want?' asked the merchant in astonishment. ( ' I don't much care, as .long as it's ons degree higher than the typewriter and the office boy.' ' Why those two particularly ?' 'Well, you see, it's just this way,' explained the caller confidentially. 'I'm married and have one child— a boy. Now that boy won't mind me, and his mother just laughs when Itry to exert my authority. So I've got desperate, and I thought if I. could get a position where the typewriter girl would have to obey mo and the office boy would have to get up and hustle when I spoke, it would sort of square ine with my dignity, which is rapidly getting away from me.

The Question of Luggage. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

The Question of Luggage. Probably no one likes luggage for its own sake. Most people are rendered uncomfortable by the thought of it from the beginning to the end of their journey ; and often the. thought of having to pack it all up again and personally conduct it home addB a drop of bitterness to an otherwise plea sant holiday. Some people carry their dislike of luggage so far as to dispense with it almost entirely. They prido ohemselves on being able to live for a month on — or in — what they can carry in a knapsack. They call this independence. But, however great may be the advantag03 of this independence of cabs, touts, and porters, with the running accompaniment of tips which these imply, it may be questioned whether the annoyances do not outweigh the comfort. It is all very well to tramp over the Welsh hills, or through a mountain pass in Switzerland, feeling that all one's necessaries are s'ra|iped upon one's back. That may be pleasant. But it is quito a different thing to ar...

The Bronzewing Cricket Club. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

The Bronzewing Cricket Club. (By an Australian, in the G lobe.) W® were known as the Wallabies and we rather fancied ourselves, sported colours, and laid claim to the title of the premier inland cricket club in =any direction. Witbin a get-at-able circumference we had beaten everything.

There had even rrone rmmd a bated whiBpor of the metropolis, coupled with such names as Bruce and Bannerman, * Syd' Gregory and 'Sammy' Jones, Why shonld we not venture to show ourselves at Moore Park, and ?discover whether ' Long Jim's' terrific yorkers, or ' Sludger Mick's' deadly breaks would prove as effective there as on their native soil ?

Suicide Made Easy. ' I have solved the problem and future genera tions will bless my name,' said the Philosopher, and his face wore a look of mingled complacency and triumph.

' My invention is founded on that king of foros,. electricity, and in brief is this : The subject is tired of life, he is out of work, with no chance of employ^ ment ; his sweetheart has forsaken him for some more favoured suitor ; he has taken too much wine and the future looks black to him.

Searching for the North Pole. Dr. Nansen, who sailed from Christiania a few weeks ago on his little vessel Fram, to force his way into the Arctic ice near the New Siberian Islands, for the purpose of drifting to the North Pole, took some precautions for a possible retreat which were not mentioned in his plans of the expedition. A party had been sent out to leave stores of pro visions for twelve men at two places on the Island of Kotelnoi, the largest of the New Siberian t-i ? j_ mi ? j ? — :n idoi and 1S95 to see that they are still serviceable. They are to be maintained for the purpose of replenishing the stock of food if the explorers find it necessary to abandon their ship aud retreat south over the ice to the Siberian coast. Dr. Nansen will not retreat south unless fatal disaster overtakes his vessel before he reaches the North Pole. If he should lose his vessel after reaching the pole he would stock hia boats with food and drag them south on sledges until he reached the open wa...
