AN ECCENTRIC DUCHESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

AN ECCENTRIC DUCHESS. Few ladies ialiigh life have over been moro cocentric than Catherine, Duchess of Queens- | borry, whose good looks were celebrated by Pope, and who, in her early days, was described by Prior as " Kitty, beautiful and young. And wild as colt untamed." It was a freak of hers when in Scotland to dress always like a peasant girl. Her idea seems to have been to make a fool of the stately droBscB and formal wayB of the Scot tish gentlewomon who camo to visit her. One evening aome of tlioso prim and precise dames came dressed in all their finery. Her Grace proposed a walk through the woods, and they wore, as in duty bound, obliged to troop off, though sorely bewailing the prob- | able destruction of their starched-up frills and flounces. Their liosteBS, after taking them through hedges,'ovor stone walls, and by paths thicldy planted on both sides with bramble bushes, at last protended to be tired, and seated herself on the top of a heap of refuse at tho end of a farmh...

THE STORY OF SAMSON. I With distended eyes, mouth, and ears Tommy Traddles heard his Sundny-Bchool teacher tell about Samson nnd his long hnir and his wonderful feats of strength, nnd his weakness after Delilah had shorn him of his leonine locks. '* An' ho didn't have any strength at nil after lie got a hair cut ?" ho asked incredu lously. " No ; his strength was in his long hair ; and when his locks were gone ho was powor leaB," explained the teacher. When Tommy caino the following Sunday his facc was a Iriflo scrntchcd and one of his eyes discoloured. Ho had very little to say but was evidently doing a great deal of think ing.

A BLACK HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

A BLACK HEART. Just before President Lincoln issued hiB Proclamation, abolishing slavery for ever in Ameiica, I was present at ti large meeting in New York, which had assembled to sup port tho policy of the President. A well known Irish clergyman, who was viBiting America for the first time, was seated on tho platform; and as he was well known for his anti-slavery principles,he wvaa asked and con sented to moke a short speech. At least two thirds of the audience seemed to be well-to docoloured people,and theIrishman,whohad never seen so many " darkies " together be foro, seemed anxious to Becure their goodwill at the Btart. Accordingly, he commenced his oration by saying, " My friends, although I have a white Bkin, I have a black heart."' Littlo Harold had been a naughty boy, and his papa had sentenced him to an hour's solitary confinement in his bedroom as a punishment. When tho hour was over, and . the small prisoner was allowed to return to the sitting-room, hd went to his mamma,...

THE MODERN GREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

THE MODERN GREEK. Tho avorago man among Che modern Greeks !b a veritablo child in his fondness for Bport, for adventure, for everything whioh involves hazard and chance. For solid, monotonous, plodding work he lias little sense. The carry ing out in orderly, mechanical fashion of a systematically devised plan which shall have itH regularly assigned stints of labour, and Bhall bring with maohine-liko exactness its alow but cortain results, affords him little delight. He has marvellously little mechan ical sense or taste, and does not wish to be a machine himself or part of a machine. Among the peoples of Europe, says a writer in tho " North American Review," lie has least in common with the German. If ho engages in a mercantile pursuit, he persists in making it a game. If he is a shopkeeper he cannot tolerate tho one-prico system. That is ontiroly too monotonous and proBaic a method of procedure, quite unworthy the interest of a man who has the Bport instinct of a gentleman. Any ordi...

THAT OLD SEA SERPENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

THAT OLD SEA SERPENT. The fabulous soa-moiiBters of antiquity aro all equalled if not exceeded by the wonder ful animals, which, according to some modern accounts, inhabit the Norweigan seas. Among these, the sea-snake, or ser pent of tho ocean, is one of the most re markable, and pcrhapB tho best attested. In 1756 one of them, it is said, was shot by a master of a ship; its head reBembled that of a horse ; the mouth was large and black, as were the eyes; a white mune hung from its neck; it floated on the surface of the water, and held its head at least two feet out of the sea. Between the head and neck were seven or eight folds which were very thick; and tho length of this snake -was more than 100 yards, some say fathoms. It is said to hare a remarkable aversion to the smell of eaator; for which reason, ship, boat, and bark mas ters provido themaelveB with quantities of that drug, to prevent being overset ; the serpent'B olfactory nerves being remarkably exquisite.

TRIFLES THAT TELL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

TRIFLES THAT TELL. It is tlio littlo tliijiga which mark the gentle woman—littlo things which appear unimpor tant to the Btupid woman, but which her clovor Bister regards as'tho true marks of a ■well-dresaed woman. A soiled ribbon at the throat lias been known to spoil the entire ciFeot of an otherwise perfect toilet, and a tastefully doviHcd stock to redeem a positively aluibby gown and to givo its chic wearer an air of indcHcribablo daintiness. Tho unfor givable offence in tno ethics of the fastidious woman is the wearing of tawdry finery. Better a gown of coarsest serge and a whito linon collar. And then a woman's shoes. How important, are they in her general appearance. Nothing is more fascinating to tho masculinc mind than a pretty foot in a pretty shoo. A neat silk stocking, and, let ub say a bronze or headed slipper, will go further to reduce somebody to a Btate of desirable subjugation that the most fashion able gown ever fashioned by the hand of the cleverest modiste.

A ROUNDABOUT WAY HOME. A poor oid countrywoman wag found one evening in the Edgwarc-road, Loudon, with out a bonnet and with a bar of soap in her hand, she had not the least notion (oxcept that it was No. 3) where her homo was situ ated. She had come from Devonshire only the night before to her daughter's house, to stay a few weeks with her, and had mado herself useful during the day at the family washing. The soap had given out, and she had offered to fetch a bar from the grocer's. As she had been there that morning with her daughter, she felt sure she could easily find it—and, indeed, had done so; but now the Bliops were shut up and everything looked different, and she could not And it again, nor could she get back to her Sally at No. 3. She, of course, appealed to the policeman; but ho could give her no assistance. If she had been a lost child he would have askod her—" Where does your father get his beer from?" and out would have come, quite naturally, the name of the public-hous...

SPIDER-SHOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 January 1902

SPIDER-SHOWERS. All who have read White's ' History of Selborne ' will recollect his descrip tion of the gossamer-showers which he had observed, one of which continued for nearly a whole day, and where the gossamer was descending from a sur prising height; for when one gentleman ascended a hill near at hand, some three hundred feet high, he found that the gossamers were descending from a region in (he atmosphere that was still beyond the reach of his gaze. These gossamer-showers are great mysteries, and when once seen cannot be forgotten ; for the air on these occasions becomes literally crowded with tiny parachutes, composed of a few threads of almost invisible gossamer, - each of the para chutes being occupied by a Lilliputian aeronaut, in the shape of a very Bmall but active spider. Whence these aerial oreatures come, or whither they go, remains so far to be discovered ; but it seems clear that somehow- they have learned the navigation of the trackless region overhead which we ca...
