All Expensive Yacht. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

An Expensive Vnchl, Mr. Vanderbilt's yacht is quite tbe most expensive built up to uow. She cost £200,000 before she left the ship builder's yard, and, as far as size goes, she can only be compared with an At lantic liner, for her length measurement Is 285ft, and to work her properly a crew of fifty-live men Is required. The speed of ibis gigantic pleasure y n;bt is 15 knots an hour. The general get-up of the vessel is unsurpassable, mid not a single requirement has been neglected. The American millionaire must have everything of the finest. Amongst the ship's equipment are two cows to supply frcsb milk, and a fowl run. Lord Uosebcry purchased recently a magnificent necklace which la said to ha\e once formed part of the French crown Jewels, and which cost the Premier | something like £20,000.

A Thier's Gratitude. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

A Tliiel's Gratitude. How can a thief who is grateful to Providence for favours lately vouch safed express that gratitude In proper terms ? He can hardly offer up his thanks publicly in church, because the police want him badly, and would lie sure to be fellow-worshippers (suys the ' Pall Mall Gazette'). Tlie only way that seemed possible to Heir Ludwtg Swietly — escaped swindler, ' house in breaker and prison out-breaker,' as the German papers succinctly define him— was to remember the sad case of those ne lert behind him in the Salzburg city gaol, and to forward 1000 gulden to the Prisoners' Aid Society in that place. The evasive philanthrop effected his escape from the Salzburger Frohnfeste in fashionable female clothing, and a smart waggonette. From that moment he was no longer heard of till the secre tary of the abovenamed society re ceived a number of notes, al stolen and mai'ked as stolen, which were dedicated to ' the poor prisoners in gratitude for my successful flight.'

A Modern Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

A Modern Dilemma. The democratic tide flows on ; It has invaded the German railway carriage, where certain Socialistic ladies are at tacking what they style the antiquated system of things (says the ' Pall Mall Gazette'). On .some lines the com partments reserved for ladies only have been called Damenkupees and Frauen kupees, or ladies'1 compartments and women's compartments, according to the class and money value of the said ladies and women. And now the So cialists will awav with this. Oall us all ladies or all women ; choose which. And some ladles object to the rough simplicity of the word Frauen, and some advanced women refuse to accept the title ladles. Hence the dilemma. It is purely a modern one. The ancient Greeks knew no degrees : a woman is simply a she-king, a she-despot, or a woman, the English grades lady, young person, woman, common woman were unknown 'to these ingenuous minds. But In the land where the philosopher is king the railway people have applied to a philologi...

Actors' Earning. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

At-iora* enrulnKK. In ' London Home' Mr. Ralph Cnino has some remarks to make on the earn ings of ' the profession.' To the merest beginner they may be no more tlian the barest living wage of £1 per week ; to the actor or actress who has created ' au Impression' the earnings may easily rise to £20, £40, or fGO a week. Actors who are also managers often make, as Mr. W. S. Penley is now making, a sum nearer £500 a week. Still, if salaries never rise to this sum, they can pass a long way into three ligures. Wide awake comedians like Mr. Arthur Ho berts are, Mr. Caine says, positively cheap at f 100 a night.

The Injury to Health Caused by the System. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 March 1899

? The Injury to Health Caused by the System. It Is Uie same kind of injury as that caused by worry. It means destruction to brain-cells and misery untold, with a corresponding degeneracy of the mus e\rtar system and WooS supply, and this no amnunt of games in tlie playground can ever counteract. It is the multi tude of his little cares and studies that weary or c-ven kill the schoolboy, just as they do older people. Now, I know from experience how baneful it is to the brain to have a multitude of little, matters all sera mni ing tor . attention at the same time.
