Short Story. Hearts' Desires. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

Short Story. Hearts' Desires. 'Couldn't you wait for me ? asked     the boy eagerly. "Wait for you ? W hat an absurd idea !" laughed the girl. "Why, you are   only 16 ; it will be ten years at least be-   for you are able to marry, and in ten years I shall be quite old. You see," continued the girl sagely, " I am old enough to be married now, that is where the difference comes in. And I am going to be presented and go to parties, and wear lovely frocks—I do hate these shabby old things—and then I shall marry somebody rich and great, and live in the world. I'm so tired of this lit- tle pokey place, with nothing but lessons and Sunday school children and rheu-   matic old women"—then suddenly look- ing down at the golden-haired lad stretched an the turf at her feet—"only, of course, I shall miss you, Herbert." " That is all very well for you ; but' what is to become of me ? I want, to marry for love, and how can I if you...

The Telling of Fortunes. An Interview with the Gipsy of the Dyke. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

The Telling of Fortunes. An Interview with the Gipsy of the Dyke. The telling of fortunes apparently in some cases leads to the making of for- tunes, and this is borne out by an inter- view published in " Black and White" with Mrs. Lee, who is known as the Gipsy of the Dyke. Thackeray's romance of Mr. Frederic Altamount driving down from his residence in Islington to his crossing near the Bank in a well-ap- pointed dog-cart, with a tiger behind, does not now appear so far-fetched when we hear of Mrs. Lee, the fortune-teller of Brighton's famous Dyke, driving over to her dally pitch in a pony carriage. She has told people's fortunes ranging from the Prince of Wales to Mr. William Whiteley. She alleges having foretold Mr. Gladstone of his defeat, ' and .also predicting that princess Louise of Wales would become the Duchess of Fife ; so that it will be seen that she moves in highest circles of society. " Do you get many presents ?" asked the interviewer. "Lots and lots, dear," replied ...

So Eager to Pay. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

So Eager to Pay. They were leisurely enjoying an ex- cellent luncheon at a fashionable restau- rant and discussing their private affairs with the freedom which publicity gives. " How awfully interesting," said the tall blonde when the other girl had finished telling her, at great length, just why she and Fred arrived so late, at the Van Duzen picnic ; " do take another ice, you know this is my treat."   " I believe I will have another, but it isn't your treat, it's mine." " No, it isn't ; you paid the car fare down." " But you treated to cream soda." " I know, but I mean to pay for this." ' Indeed, you shall not, I---- " " Well, we shall see. How good these ices are. Do you know, Ethel really made that pink gown herself, and only sewed Madame Fitts's name into the waistband." "You don't say so ! Why, there is Susie Fisher over yonder. I wonder who paid, for her luncheon to-day ; that girl is a regular sponge." " Isn't she ? Don't look at her ; she is capable of coming o...

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Cassilis. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.)   Cassilis. The Xmas holidays passed off quietly here, the only attraction on Monday being a small race meeting, hurriedly organised by a few sporting members of the community considering the short time allowed to canvas for subscrip- tions towards the day's sport a very liberal programme was presented to the public consisting of some four events, the prize money totalling nearly £20. -The entries were good, and each event saw good fields and fairly good racing. The three princi- pal events resulted as follows: — Opening Handicap 7 furlongs.— Harvey's Retort 9-9 1 ; Kearney's Agitator 9-0 2; Piper's True Love 8 10 3. A field of seven faced the flag for this event and the finish was exciting, Retort just winning on the post.

Goulburn River. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

Goulburn River. Our local team played a cricket match against Denman on Monday last, and came off victorious, though they considered when starting that they had far from their host team, having to include two beginners, whose play was not very certain ; but the results show the beginners to be formidable opponents one of them (B. Buchanan) having actually captured five wickets in two overs in the match. This is a really meritorious perfor- mance, and bids fair to place him in the front rank of our players. The scores were Goulburn River—first inninga 195, second five wickets for 77 ; Denman—first innings 136. [Our oorrespondent has supplied the full scores ; but we are reluctantly compelled to hold them ovor till next week.—Ed.] We were in hopes of a wet Christmas ac- cording to Mr. Russels forecast, but were disappointed; so every one was dull and dis- pirited. We never recollect so quiet a Xmas, which may be taken as a sign of the financial prospects of the district. We have a few...

China and Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

China and Russia. In view of the unsettled state of affairs in Eastern Asia, France has de- cided to send a cruiser to China. The Chinese Government have inti- mated that they regard Russia as the only friend of China, and add that they consider the influence of Great Britain   to be nil, largely owing to the failure of the loan negotiations with that power. News has been received that Russian   officers are engaged in drilling armies in the north of China. The Russian   Government are negotiating with firms in San Francisco and China for the supply of large quantities of canned fruit and meat, which will be sent to Vladivostock, the chief Russian naval station in the Pacific, in view of pos-, sible trouble with Japan. The United States Government remain passive with regard to the activity of the Powers in the East. The Chinese Government have-accepted an offer by Russia of   120,000 Berdan rifles, payment of which is to be made af...

A Narrow Escape. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

A Narrow Escape. A boy named Sidney Walton, aged   11 years, who was a passenger by a   train from Lewisham to Stanmore, had a miraculous escape the other day. The train he travelled by was a through one from Petersham to Sydney. Of     this fact the boy was unaware, and when the train approached Stanmore station the lad got out of the American carriage and stood on the platform waiting for the train to stop. As it dashed, through the station the lad re- alised that he was, being carried past his destination, and when the, train got clear of the station Welton evidently got frightened and jumped from the train. The speed by this time was about 25 miles an hour. The boy fell upon some ashes between the up and   down lines. Ticket collector Teague, seeing the boy jump and fall in a heap on the ground, ran to his assistance.       Before Teague. however, reached the lad the latter ju...

Collision in Sydney Harbour. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

Collision in Sydney Harbour. A marvellous escape from a terrible maritime disaster occurred shortly after noon 0n Monday at Circular Quay, when the steamer Princess, laden with passengers for Athol Gardens, came into collision with the North Shore ferry boat. Cammera y, and sank a few     minutes later. By great good fortune those few moments allowed sufficient time to get the sinking steamer back to the wharf and unload her passengers, which some eye witnesses calculate must have numbered about three hun- dred. From the story of one witness it appears that the Princess, outward bound, well laden with passengers off for the holiday excursion, had just backed out from Circular Quay, and was making down the harbour, when she came into collision with the Cam- meray, then approaching the wharf from the North Shore. The force of the impact was tremendous, and the Princess, which was struck in the bows, was at once seen to be sinking. The water came in in a consi...

Br. Barnado's Homes. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

Dr. Barnado's Homes. Dr. Barnado's NIGHT AND DAY for   November repeals the story that so many public, charities have had to tell,   namely, that owing doubtless to the   many, funds now making their drafts   upon the.benevolent, receipts have ser-   iously fallen off, and that there is urg-   ent need of immediate help to main- tain the efficiency of the work. Severe retrenchments have been effected, and   yet the well known Homes, which have   rescued 32,000 boys and girls, and which have nearly 5,000.children now under their care, are crippled for lack of needful income It is an interesting and suggestive story, however, of bene- ficial work that Dr. Barnado has to tell. The late Mr. Mundella devoted his last public utterance to a warm eulogium of the boarding out methods of the Homes, although he admitted   that at first he had "grave doubts" about these methods. ...

A Son Assaults His Father. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898

A Son Assaults His Father. A man named Michael Gregan was arrested by the Clifton Hill (Mel- bourne) police on a charge of murder ing his father James Gregan. The father and son on Monday night were alone. Accused's statement was to the effect that deceased and himself were drinking together in the house. Deceased used some terms of abuse respecting his dead wife and accused's mother. High words ensued, and eventually blows which led to a regular fight. At last accused struck     deceased a blow in the face, which knocked , him insensible. Accused   then went to bed, and when he got up in the morning he found his father laying in the same, place, apparently dead. The son then ran for Dr. Stocks, who, on seeing deceased, pro- nounced him dead. The post mor-   tem examination showed that Gre- gon's death was the result of natural causes. At Hampstead, England, a man re- manded on a charge of attempting to murder his wife and child an...

An American Woman Taste. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

An American Woman Taste. One of the favourite American lady writers on fashion has recently put the relationship between speech, manners, and clothes pertinently before the pub lic (says the St. James's Gazette)* Between lauguage and clothes, she says, there exists a legitimate and per fect relation, as well as, on the other band, a repugnaufc and distasteful dis cord. Fine laDguage, fine manners, and fine clothes are a beautiful har mony, but cannot be separated with out producing disastrous effects and a sorry spectacle. The beauty of clothes is not always their cost or their color, though good things always look better than common ones. It is the style and suitability of the robes that make them elegant For instance, a young girl on the threshold of life always looks well in white or in a delicate shade of colour, and a woman who knows how to grow old gracefully wears black and white or a soft grey or rich violet. Cultured society recognises the fitness of Quaker tints, relieved ...
