An Unprofitable Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

An Unprofitable Enterprise. I>- the course-of Lis speech-at the nomination of ; candidates for ihe vacancies in (ho local. Municipal Council, on Tuesday last, Mr. Sidney Lea. sevorety criticised many of the actions of the Council. Among other things he - said \tbo old ' wator ■■•...works cost the municipality in round numbers £800, and all they had now toshow for this large expenditure was a shed at the Gas "Works worth a few pounds and £10, tho price obtained for - the machinery. Ho said the machinery was given away and £25 could easily have been obtained for it. An engineer, who overhauled the machinery after it was sold said it was honestly worth £100, and he was astohished that it had been parted with for only £10. If this is correct, it is a pity attention was not drawn to the matter before the sale was completed, so that the municipality might have obtained: the I valuo of the machinery, and -.not I suffored such a heavy loss over the I old waterworks.

Waterloo Survivors. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

Waterloo Survivors. The recurrence of the anniversary of "Waterloo has led to a diligent search in France for French ■ veterans of . that great combat. - Only three survive, of whom.Victor Baillot is the eldest. He was born at Cnresey in 1793, and was caught in the last of Napoleon's con scriptions. Baillot was taken prisoner at' Waterloo, after receiving a - sabre slash on the helmet'which felled him ,to the ground,:, but * did not wound him! His chief recollection' of the battle is that the growing wheat impeded the progress of the French army, and , cavalry were sent" to trample it down. This, Baillot thinks, was a great pity, for it was : wanton destruction.

O'Brien's Bulls. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

O'Brien's Bulls. The late Sir Patrick O'Brien's ** bulls" rivalled the bulls of Sir Boyle Roche, and, like Sir Boyle Roche's impromptus, were 'in some instances not unpremeditated. His most famous bull was, perhaps, the observation " that the Irish Church Act had broken down the bridge that had previously separated the Catholics from the Protestants in Ireland." On one occasion, being interrupted by a titter of laughter, lie paused, and, looking angrily towards the quarter whence the interruption proceeded, said, " Hah ! Mr. Speaker, I hear a. twinkle."

Pith and Point. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

Pith and Point. Flattery is food to the avarice of foola. A man's best friend Is a fat pocket book. Time is the surgeon who sets broken hearts. We need sorrow as the flowers need night. Prosperity makes more fools than ad versity does. Time is the sandwich between birth and death. A well-regulated home is a millennium on a small scale. The reduction in England's debt last year was fS,5U5,000. The ideal husband and the ideal wife are purely creations of'the brain. Pleasure is very often merely the mask of pain ; happiness never is. . The first indication of domestic happi ness is the love of one's home. Opportunities are bald behind ; you must catch them by the forelock. A man thinks he knows it all, until a woman begins to enlighten him. Paradoxical as it may seem, the miner to be successful must dig in vein. The number of draught dogs in Bel gium is probably not less than 50,000. When a woman knows she is well dressed, it is difficult to ruffle her temper. It is well to profit by o...

The Japanese Toilet. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

Tlic Japanese Toilet. It often seems to a stranger as if the : Japanese were striving for the shadow rather than the substance of' cleanliness. This is especially notable of . their baths, which are used over and et again by successive persons, in the order of their dignity , and importance, until the water -becomes far from inviting. ' The result is practical cleanliness for the average, however. In ironing clothes, the Japs, like the Chinese Sings and Wungs who, have come hither, spurt water upon them from their mouths'. From 5 to 7 in the morning all live Japs seem to be brushing their teeth, an act which is, in warm weather at least, generally performed-in public, with <i .toothbrush whose handle' is'a foot and a-lialf long. In a country; village tlie toothbrush is dipped in the' brook, which flows, rank with sewage, from the villa and the rice fields. As a natural result, cholera, dysentery, and typhoid fever spread rapidly wherever they gain a foothold. In the large...

Sneezing. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

Sneezing. .Sneezing is a reflex act caused by an irritation of some portion of: tlie large nerve supplying sensation to tlie face. Excessive sneezing may be the result of. some irritant, usually of vegetable ori gin, coming in contact with the mucous membrane lining the nose, or it may be associated with some general disorder. "Whooping, cough and asthma are often accompanied by violent fits of sneezing. Persons of a " gouty" tendency are often afflicted with frequent sneezing! and the same is true of persons who possess a somewhat hysterical or exceedingly ner vous temperament. A sneeze and a cough exert much the same effect over different portions of the respiratory tract. In sneezing an effort is made.to get rid of some substance irritating the mucous membrane of the nose ; in coughing the same thing is attempted for the throat. Sneezing is in some-instances produced by looking at a strong light or. vivid colour. The inflammation may be increased, if not actually produced, by . e...

Short Story. Lil and the Others. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 February 1898

Short Story. Lil and the Others. A cat was the cause of it all ; a fact ■ which Lil insisted was most peculiar, us she had always held the feline spe cies in especial abhorrence. ! The three girls, Lilias Maynard, Prue Falsgrave, and Mary Baldwin, kept house together, and a very pleasant home it was. The house belonging to True, who was the possessor of a hand some income, and her liberality enabled the other girls to live in a style to which they could otherwise have had no pretension. Both depended upon , their own exertions, Mary as a teacher ' in the High School, Lil as a shorthand, writer in a railway otlice. Prue was considerably older than her companions,! who admired her for her extensive ex-1 perienee of life. » "! True, a woman of speculative and! theoretical tendencies, was honestly do-1 voted to Lil, and excessively jealous of | any interference with her own inliuence.
