Round Camp Fire A GHOSTLY CHAPTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 April 1892

A GHOSTLY CHAPTER. Muligan, as we said last week, led the way. the " Doctor" quaking with fear, bring ing up the rear. At length the party reached an opening in the timber, the moon sending a silvery shaft across the little clearing, until it struck a peculiarly white gaunt-looking object, which looked quite weird in the moonlight. They had halted near a tall gum, at once side of which was a rough bush fence, a board out of a whisky case bearing an inscription being nailed to the tree. As soon as the " Doctor" caught sight of the object opposite he gave a loud howl and would have run away had not Brady caught him by the slack of his pants and held him. The object was certainly weird enough to frighten anyone of a timid nature, or who was inclined to be superstitious. The figure appeared about seven feet in beiglit; the arms were outstretched, while the face looked quite demoniacal. A short sword in one hand, while something like an old fashioned pistol was held in the other. A pecul...

CHAPTER LXVIII.-COLLAPSE OK THE HOUSE OF RIMMON. The palatial residence and the Methodist cathedral were actually commenced. The foundation-stone of the cathedral bad been laid by Mr. Furniss, M.P. for .lumley j and there had been a great demonstration. St. Martha's church steps had been crowded with spectators, causing no little annoyance to the vicar who bad come in person to re monstrate, but had received a Black Country reception, which is equally strong for against as the occasion may require; and on this occasion it was against. It would have pleased Sir. Bimmon, could a foundation stone of the palatial residence have been laid, too, with a like display ; but he could see no way of bringing it about. Although he bad only thought this in the innermost sanctum of his bean and with all tbe doors shut, the wily Simpler was aware of at least the direction biB thoughts were taking, and awoke to tbe knowledge that this property would slip through his fingere if he did not bestir hims...

WHAT IS A KANAKA? [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 April 1892

WHAT IS A KANAKA? The Fiji correspondent of the S. if. Herald writes:-" Kanaka, applied in Queensland to what we here call Polynesian labourers, is no doubt the meaning or origin of which is ob scure to the majority of your readers; and, as it is being much used just now, the following explanation may be of interest:-Kanaka is a synonym for the Fijian tamata (human being); and in passing from group to group in the Pacific, it is interesting to note bow the latter word, by successive clianges in the consonants, becomes the former. Storting from Fiji with Tamata, wc find to the north-east that the m has become ng-like ng in our word sing-pro ducing tangata. A little further north the t changes to k and the word kangaka. A little more to the northward again and we find that the g has been eliminated, leaving it kanaka, which it remains past the line and on to Hawaii. So that the term 'kanaka labour' really means ' human labourers' or ' labouring human beings.'"

" He's never bappy to see people join our board, nnless it's to bis own interest," said the son, who bad jnst quarrelled with his father. " I guess the governor wants you to cash op, Rimmon." Jobal was engaged speaking to the ladies, and did not hear the last remark distinctly, for which reason Springwood tbe younger repeated it as Jubal seated himself. Jubal having bad little money as a boy. was most ambitious to be oonsidcred " flush," as he termed it, now be was a man; so be re marked with the air of a landed proprietor. "You shall have it to-morrow, Springwood. I'll bring it myself and go to the play after wards. I would pay you now, only a fellow can't go about with nothing in his pocket, you know; so if it will be all the same to you, I'll bring it in to-morrow." When the party rose to go to the theatre for rehearsal, .Tubal went...

" I've got caught in a trap," he said. " There's only one chance for me. I've sent a telegram to my nncle David." *' For goodness' sake tell me what it is," said Laura, blanched in ber turn. Jabal blurted out his nest words like a man who simply does not turn a tap but pulls it boldly. " I've been helping myself to his cash, that's it, for this long time past. It wouldn't have come to light at all, if I hadn't gone in for such a big lot this time.
