QUEER VOICES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 June 1894
QUEER VOICES. No one who has not lived in the coun. try and in the neighbourhood of trees has any notion of the strangeness of the sounds that are heard at night. The owls have very different notes. One snores, another to-woos, and another screams. In Ceylon the devil bird is a constant source of alarm and inquiry. No one knows exactly what bird it is that pro duces the horrible blood-curdling cries that thrill through the night air, but it is supposed to be an owyl. A person who has long lived in Ceylon says. "Never shall I forget when I first heard it. I was at dinner, when suddenly the wildest, most agonising shrieks reached my ears. I was under the impression that a woman was .being murdered outside the house. I snatched up a cudgel and ran forth to her aid, but saw no one." The natives tegard this-cry oftthemys terious bird with a superstitous teircr They believe that to hear it is a sure presage of death, and they are not wrong. 'When they have heard it theyj pine to death, ki...

ANOTHER WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 June 1894
ANOTHER WORLD. She does not know when the change came. Her last memory is of the familiar surroundings that blended themselves with her first dreaminess and were lost in the deep sweet sleep that followed sleep undisturbed by visior.ni of the change that was to come. And now the awakening to this new world of dusky silence I Vast gloom stretched from either side. Strange shapes for which she knows no name, rise dim in menace. For long after the first glance she is hushed and motion less ; then the terror grows too great to. be endured, and a cry quavers from her lips. The voice is hers--she is herself though all her world be gone. Again and again the shrieks pierce th. brooding night ! demanding-pleading -defying she knows not what. What is the memory that eludes her? What horror impends ? But no voice speaks her doom ; there is only the increasing darkness and the silence. It ends ! She hears a hurried rushing so3und-she feels herself caught up in a quick clasp--she is borne quickl...

Had he remembered the argumients and- faets stated in my former letter, he woull not so readily accuse me of founding a theory against Women's Sufrag"e from insufficient dati. Hoi ever, I m!ill throw in another argument grttis to give Mr. Watt something more to cheyw upon for intellectual benefit. Let us analyze the woman s character. What is the mainspring of women's action ? Vanity, I am bold to say, is ever the uppermost feeling throughout woman'a earthly pilgrimage. And it is quite right that it should be so for abstract thought; an impersonal view of life is sufficient for man. Now, Mr. 'Watt does not instance an individual excep philosophies and experiences of liftiand I'll lay that I have made an argumeita; tive noose from which you cannot with draw your int...
