THE FATE OF KINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
THE FATE OF KINGS. Cbarlos X. was expelled from France in 1830. For two years he lived in England, and for four on the Continent, finally dying in Hungary! His favourite amuse ment during his exile was card-playing. Amadeus of Spain abdicated in 1873, disgusted with the tedious ceremonials of the Spanish Court. He returned to Italy, and was glad to resume his honorary and nominal duties as an officer of the Italian . seivice. : Maxmilian, the unfortunate Emperor of Mexico, did not have a chance to go into exile ; but all the world knowB t:e story of the unhappy Caxlotta, driven to madness by the misfortunes of herself and huBband. Stephen II. of Hungary abdicted out of weariness m 1131, and spent his time after that date in travel. He visited almost every Continental capital, made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land; and enjoyed the reputation ot being one of the best travelled men of his day. Louis XVIII. had two terms of exile, the first lasting during the Consulate and Empire, the seco...
'SHUT THE DOOR.' [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
' SHU T THE DOOB.' Among the peculiarities of Dr. Burney were two of a very innocent kind — the first was the possession of wine of the beet vintage; the next, the dread o( a ourrent of air. ' Shut the door !' was the first saluta tion uttered by him to anyome who entered his apartment, and but few of his associates ev-?r neglected the rule. This custom did not abandon him on the most trying occasions; for having been robbed while returning home one evening in hiB catriage along the Green wich Bead by a couple of footpads, who were more eager in obtaining his money than contributing to his comfort, he called them back in a peremptory tone ; and while they were wondeiing what he wanted with them, he exclaimed in his usual manner, and with hiB own peculiar emphasiB, ? Shut the door !' A voice accustomed to command pro duced the desired effect, and he was in stantly obeyed.

BAMBOOZLING GRANDMA. ' Tnere never was a grandma half so good !' He whispered while beside hor chair he stood, ? - And laid her rosy cheek, With manner very meek, | AgainBt her dear old face in loving mood. ' There never was a nicer grandma born ; I know some little boys must be forlorn, Because they've none like you. I wonder what I'd do Without a grandma's kisses night and morn P ' There never was a dearer grandma ; there !' He kissed her and he fmoothed her snow wh'te hair ; Then he fixed her ruffled cap. And nestled in her lap, While grandma, smiling, rocked her old armchair. ' When I'm a man what things to you I'll bring : A horse and carriage, and a watch and ring. All grandmas are so nice (Just here he kissed her twice), And grandmas give a good boy everything.' Before his dear old grandma could reply , This boy looked up, ^nd with a roguish eye Thon whispered in her ear, That nobody might hear : ' Say, grandma, have you any more mince pie P'

The old boatman has an army of sons, but these have all become fully fledged, - have boats of their own, and their own kettleB to boil, bo to speak; so that the father has fallen back for assistance upon the two girls I have named, and the twain, who have been used to the sea and boats since they were babies, assist their father in the workiBg of his very large boats just as we'll as any men could. There is no more popular boat within' miles, for the girls are as modest and as well-spoken and educated as they are hardy and pretty ; and the two are credited, young as they are, with the Baving of at least ...

Ladies' Column ORIGINAL LONDON LETTER Bt MBS STRANGE BUTSON. ( A t.t. Bights Reserved.) A LOVELT TEA GOWN (^SKAN be made so easily that I wonder ffbb? such dainty ' negliges ' are not gKy more often worn. After a long day's bunting or riding, .at the end of a weary jonrney, or even a distant walk, how refreshing to change into a loose, easy garment of this kind, and rest unfVi nrto'a 1 ! H 1 n fan.ta.blfl at the aide of one's easy chair, or sofa. A costume of this kind is useful for more than this one purpose. Though, as.a matter of fact a tea-gown, it is equally serviceable for home dinner wear, or even a small even ing reception. It would also be quite perinieuible for a theatre or concert, so that it is ho extra vayance to have such a dross when it can be used in so many ways. Now as to the material. Well, that may be as rich, or aa simple as you like. I have seen a model like that above made in sumptuous silks, but quite as effectively in mousaeline de laine, nun's cloth or veil...

Our Q;:en Column THE SPELLING OF CAN 0 WIN iJR A. (To the Editor,) j In bringing this matter before your readers I foel sure they will agree with me that there is neod of reform, for they must all have been strue'e with the readi ness which visitors from a distance fall into tho error of pronouncing tho word. Let him bo lawyer, politician, parson, oi anything else, one and alL pronounce it Oan'-o-winMra. Now I would suggest that tho Progress Committee take the matter up and have the 'i' loft out; this must bo getting rusty from disuse, for it has been there, and silent or blind for so loinr lhat it cm be easily dispensed with. Although it may not look like nn improvement, in print, it will at least be a relief to those having to go through the onleal of pronouncing it correctly. Whilst in conversation with a clergyman, a now arrival, some little timo back refer ence was made to the above, and ho told me tL;it alter one or two attempts ne gave it up, and when he referred to it it wou...
Mortality In Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 16 May 1902
Mortality In Horses. A few weeks ago some valuable horses belonging, to Mr. E.. A. Twiffg, of Broula, died suddenly under ' circumstances which led to the belief that death was due to poisoning. - Mr. Twigg accordingly had the contents of one animal's stoin.ch seht to 'Sydney to be analyse!. Mr. Waddell had the analysis conducted, the report being as follows : — ' No 'traces of mineral poisons were, found. Alkaloids were sought for. and Coinine isolated and recognised. We are, therefore, of opinion that Hemlock or a similar allied plant was the cause of death. We add that no food contents of the stomach were sent with the organs.' This information will, no doubt- be of interest to stockown ers generally. Two important, notices of motion will be dealt with at tha P., A & ,JT. special general meeting on Saturday next. ' All members of the A -socia' o i should at tend'. The first sec 'ion of the Oowra-Gregra railway survey has been paessd by the Department of Works. For Childre...

No j one however, I hope will hold me respon- j silile for the delay, as over and over again I have brought the matter under the noticii of the Department. Last November the present Minister (W. O'Sullivan) authorised the survey to be proceeded with, but what do we find? Seven months have elapsed, aud tho pub lic will observe by the answer contained in tho following official letter that the sur vey has not yet been completed If this is a sample of how the Minister keeps his promises, then I hope the public will not hold me responsible.

CELERY FOR RHEUMATISM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
CELERY FOR RHEUMATISM. Probably no class of people suffer mtre with rheumatism than farmers, and ret tbe remedy, for this dreadtul disease'is or should be, right at hand. If celery were eaten freely, sufferers from rheo i mansm would be comparatively few. It I is a mistaken idea that cold and damp 'prc | duce the disease; they simply develop it Acid blood is tho primary aid sustaining cause. If celery is eatbn largely,. -an I alkaline blood is the result, and where j this exists there can be neither rheu matism nor gout. It should be eaten eooked Cut into bite, and boil till toft in as little water as possible. Add to this half ai much milk as there is water in the celery, ihjekan with .flour aud season with butter, pepper, and salt. '

Gur 0p-3H Go.'uain. THAT GOVERNMENT TANK. (To the Editor.) Siu, — I was pleased when I read your leading article ou the above subject in ; your last issue, as I believe it will be the means of stirring up those people who j aro depending- on it for water aud so' cause them to work together and force ' those in authority to supply the da-n with the necessary appliances, so that ! those coecerned may bo ennhlfd to secure! a supply for themselves and their stock. With regard to tho porition which was ia circulation to liavo tho dam thrown open to the public I may say that I never saw it, and I was an interested patty, resid ing only three miles distant. The reason I think that the petition was signed by anyone at all was that a number of farmers residing near had at. the time a good water supply and thoy thought the dam would never bo required, and also because of some slight party feeling which existed at the time betveen those most interested in the tank. 1 hope however that t his il...
