In the corners will b9 piles of faggots ready to bo idded to this unexampled funeral pyre. It takes a great heat to undo the work of a Siburiau frost. Usually half a dozen men make up the parly that is to' puss judgment and determine. Four of the six aro peasants, and it is their duty to bring up tlie bodies one by one.

A POOR CLERK. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 5 October 1898
A POOR CLKBK. Spain and its affairs hare been more in tho world's eye of late than has been tbe case for yuars. Under the circumstances a word about its Prime Minister may be interesting. Don Antonio Canovas del Castillo, the son of a poor village schoolmaster, was born near Malaga, nearly 69 years ago. At an early age he went to Madrid— some people maintain that he covered tho distance on tout— ^und obtained a clerkship in the offices of a railway company. Iu spite of his. wretchedly low salary^ he con trived to pay the expense of studyiug law, and iu due time blossomed into a Lawyer, He attracted attention by two works, one on fiction atd the other on history. After occupy ing several subordinate posts, he became, in 1865, fecrelary for the Colonies, an'office which he considered tbe first step to a Miniiterial career. Thenceforth his rise was comparatively rapid, and bis name is as well kuown in Spain as is that of Mr. Chamberlain in England.

Starting from San Diego, he mdde the entire journey to San Francisco with a friend, without spending ur needing to speud money. Finding life so easy to the meio uronteui, he was uot surprised to lind how ad mi.'ably complete aud luxurious it is for the professional ' hobo ' in this hospitable country. Tramps' camps were frequently encoun tered, in some cases organised carefully, aud iu every case sustained by the fear or favour of the surrounding settlers. In one, place the amateurs were informed that the practice of' ' Moating ' was extensively carried ou. This consists in tbe tramp getting himself arrested, when he is comfortably lodged overnight iu gaol, well fed the next morning, and' floated ' | onward to the next night's lodging mid food.

MOUNT KOSCIUSKO OBSERVATORY. TAKING OBSERVATIONS. DIFFICULTIES WITH LAMPS. CURIOUS PHENOMENA. (By Mr. B. 'De Burgh NEWTH, Mount Kosciusko.) &nbsp; &nbsp; Slowly but surely is winter relax ing his icy grip, and though, the signs of approachiug spring are as yet far and far between, I think that we can say that we have had weather to con tend with at least as unpleasant as we are likely to have — in fact that we have left behind us the worst of the winter, and the observatory is still running successfully, in spite of the gloomy predictions of certain persons &nbsp; whose minds are overburdened with superflous knowledge of the mount tains. That there are dangers I freely admit, mainly connected with expeditions to and from Jindabyne, and, such excursions as we make among the mountains for our own benefit, not for forgetting the occasional narrow escapes from being blown away and lost, which an observer may experience whilst taking night observations in exceptio...
