The Pope's Encyclical. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

The Pope's Encyclical. I Theperaonol character of Leo theThirteenth is such tbat he speaks with power not only ex cathedrd to hia own vast flock, but to tbo world at large. In an encyclical Letter recently issued by his Holiness, and put in circulation throughout the congregations of the faithful, appear these pregnant pasaageo, which gain weight from the conspicuous wis dom, prudenc»-, und experience of t heir author, as well as from his exalted position. Leo the Thirteenth recognises many causes at work in the present condition of things, to loosen the bonds of public order and to withdraw i 1 ? i_ ? ? ? ,i ? i:Pn conduct. And then his Holiness proceeds : Th^ro arc three influences which appear to us to have the chief place in affecting this down-grade movement of society. These are — first, the distaste to a simple and laborious life ; secondly, repugnance to suffering of any kind; thirdly, the forgetfulness of tbe future life. We deplore— and those who judge of all things merely...

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. I [Br Zara.] I During Lent we can scarcely be expected to re cord local functions of a very exciting nature, still I attended a garden party last evening at the Bar racks, which although not wildly entertaining was exceedingly pleasant. The two tennis courts in front of tho mess rooms make a lovely sweep oE green lawn, and there in the bright moonlight ladies and gentlemen in evening costumes promen aded and listened to the delightful music of the Artillery Band. The handsome uniform of the New South Wales Artillery, and the officers ot a German war ship now in the harbour, adding considerably to the pictuvesqueness of the siene, aud the glanc ing throng gained a softening beauty in the lovely moonlight. The lustre of white satin was intensi fied, and the softer shades of blue and pink were charmingly contrasted by the warmer tones of rod and ruby. Some rich black gowns in velvet or satin made an effective setting for the wearers charms, and dresses of fairy -...

A Clever Dog. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

A Clever Dog. A correspondent of an exchange says : — Watch was a very sagacious dog. I taught him to sneeze after two or three lessons, but one bitter cold night he refused to. I punished him by tell ing him to sleep on the floor instead of the lounge, . his usual resting place. About midnight I was awakened by hearing something moving across the floor. Glancing out of one eye I discovered Mr Watch with his nose under the round of a chair, pushing it across the floor ; every miruite he wouH glance at the bed and listen ; thinking me taat asleep he got the chair under my ovprcoat, got into the chair, shook the coat off a hook, sat on part o£ it, pulled the rest over him, and lay down to pleasant dreams. Once when coming home from Brattle borough late at night, I thought I would see what lie would do in an emergency. I accordingly stopped the horses and kept perfectly still for half a minute. Watch, who was under the pole between the horses, came out to the side of the road, and seei...

Two Irish Misers. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Two Irish Misers. An old miser lived in Connaught, and seemed to b« an utterly forlorn creature, without ' chick or child' belonging to him. It waa rather fortunate for the non-existent chick that such was its state, for if it had had an existence it would surely have lacked the means to support it. This old misor was so mean that he denied himself bread, and only kept his miserable life in its tenement by gifts of food from charitable neighbours. But he was known to have plsnty of money hidden away in his wretched shanty, and his neighbours at laBt got tired of giving to one so entirely unworthy. r or some aays no one went near oia man,, and the cabin stood desolate. No one was seen bo go in or out, and at last the constable determined to take the obBtmate old creature to gaol. The door was broken open and the old miser was found dead. In his wretchedly starved condition, and frantic at the thought of leaving his loved money behind him, tie had died trying to swallow some of his ow...
