E. W. SrARKE's REPORT. Fat Cattle. — Sales thia week were fairly we'l attended, and, with a brisk demand, all good fresh, lots of cattle sold at satisfactory figures.

Maitland Auctioneers' Reports. J. n. ijrunker's report. Fat Cattle. — The number or cattle yaraea on Monday though not excessive proved sufficient to meet the demand ; but with a good attendance of buyers, competition was active and late values well maintained. At yesterday's sales, the supply was lighter than usual and I succeeded in placing the whole of my consignments at advanced rates.

A Widow's Walk. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

A Widow's Walk. The Marquise de Beauminois had mourned sufficiently for a gouty and unreasonably jealous husband j she had recently laid aside her weeds and began a vouvaine, when an order from the King enjoined her to lodge, a captain and his squadron, which had been sent to cloar the country of an audacious band of brigands. The young widow submitted with good grace. While the dragoons had freo access to the pantry she did the honors of her table for their chief, the ?Due de Merval. Dom Marouflot, the chaplain of the chateau, acted as chaperon. One evening the Duke was talking and drinking in the large wainscoted room, whore he waB playing chess with Dom Marouflot-. The Marquise, who wore an exceptionally elegant toilet, was asking herself, for the thousandth time that week : 'Do I really love him ?' and though she reflected seriously, her question remained unanswered. 'That Gillou is a elever bandit !' growled the captain between two games ; ' for two weeks we have scoured the co...

The Cook's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

The Cook's Eevenge. ( From tlie New York Times.) Our esteemed contemporary the Courier des Etats Unis promulgates a merry jest that comes to it from the Pacific coast of South America. There is in Chile a town called Callipuli, which is largely1 populated by foreigners, and especially by French man and Germans. The German colonists had not long ago what the correspondent of the Courier calls the ' bizarre idea' of celebrating the anni versary of Sedan, and fchsy assembled at a banquet for that purpose. But they had reckoned with out their cook, who appears to have been a Frenchman or, even worse, an Alsacian, and this ingenious and vindictive artist mingled with the viands of .'the hated race Bubtle medicaments of which thfi efFpp.fc war. nn flip FrAnnli irlirtm Vine fv, make to jump the interiors of the feasters.

Theosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Tkeosophy. We have been for some time in search of a defi nition of Theosophy which really defined it. Following, from the little treatise Do you know it ? is a statement of the tbeosopliic doctrine at once fuller and more concise than any wo have previously come across : — Theosophy is a system of theoretical and practical metaphysics, seasoned with spiritualism and based, in its ebsential principles, upon the most ancient Indian and Grecian philosophies, notably that of pythagoras who taught the soul possessed a distinct existence and passed from one body to another. The Theosophical creed, s.iys its most able expo nent — Mrs. Besant — ' consists of three affirmations. 'Pirnf:. Hip uriivnrRn i.q fnndn.Tnpnfn.llv Rnirif.iml nyid matter is only an expression of spirit. Second, law reigns everywhere, in morals as much as in physical nature. That is, every act and every thought pro duces its inevitable result, against which no prayer and no vicarious atonement is of the least avail. T...

Gems of Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Gems of Thought. The clever thing to do is to find out people's merits. If a man is his brother's keeper, still more is he hie sister's. When master and workmen unite the work is soon done. Give one sin the right of way and it will wreck the universe. Every duty we omit obscures some truth we should have known. TJ. Ui ? n«r.nn 4-VinJ- nwrt. used tho most. Many of our careB are but a morbid way of looking at our privileges'. No space of regret can make amende for one's life opportunities misused. The real man is one who always finds excuses for others, but never excuses himself. The home where each member liaslearned to rule his or her own spirit is an ideal home. The vanity of human life is liko a river constantly passing away yet constantly coming on. Most of our misfortunes^ are more supportable that the comments of our friends upon them.

Considerable money was bet, for every one Snew what a 'cinch' Morris had, and an easy way to make some Christmas change was to back him. Many felt a bit of pity for the few so simple aB to back the ' greenhorn,' but when the race was run the greenhorn was first past the post, and a winner easily in lOisec. ' He proved to be a ringer,' Bays nf «in n- niirn(-rB. Doubtless. His front name ?was ' Old Fred' Stone.

A DARING GAME. CHAPTER XI— (Continued.) 'It will do, I think,'' said Craoen Black, exult antly. ' I might have made it stronger— ordered her to marry Eufus under penalty of a father's curse — but that would not have been like Sir Harold Wynde, and she might have suspected the the letter to be a forgery. As it is, Sir Harold himself would hardly dare to deny the letter as his own, should his spirit walk in here. I've mannged the letter with the requisite delicacy and caution, and there can be no doubt of the result. The hand writing is periKuu. . He inclosed the letter, and addressed it to Miss Neva Wynde, sealing it with the bronze wax, and Sir Harold's private seal. Then he inclosed the sealed letter in a larger envelope, that which had inclosed the Baronet's last letter to his wife from India. The letter which had come in this evelope 'was written upon three pages, and contained noth ing at variance with his forged missive. Upon the fourth and blank page of Sir Harold's last lette...
