MODERN THIEF MAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 20 May 1899

MODERN THIEF MAKERS Theru wouil not be balf as mai.y robberies committed if it were not for the gentry who make a living by buying tbo ' swag.' A good many ' fences ' ire.icutteied smehg tbe silversmiths and working jewellers ; they buy watches, el aius, nugs, and other goods of cne same cnarpcter,alter thorn to pn lenb recog nition, and Hill them privately to dealers in other neighbourhoods, by whom they aic resold to the public. Watohes art- easily disguised by adding a llEiire or two to the number, reversing the ' engiue-turning ' on the case and changing the bands for a pair quite unlike them. Some times the works' of one watch are put iu - diffetent ease. To alter a watch, a new .swivel, bar, and pendant «re substituted Tor tbo original ones, and generally the length of the chain is less ened.' With rings, a bold design is skilfully chased on the surface, so an to blend with that already there, and yet to alter the general effect. £ton« rings ueed very careful handling, and man...

THE FATAL LILIES The Lady of Larchton Mere. CHAPTER IX (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 20 May 1899

THE FATAL LILIES, — OR — The Lady of Larchton Mere. ? o ? CHAPTER IX (Continued). Lady Cunjnor's anguish seemed to have overcome her dignity. There was neither anger nor malice in her words, nothing but the calm dignity of despair. ' lie has killed our child !' she repeated. I will tell you how and why he did it. He quarrelled with me just before he took little Hugh in the boat. Any of those who were present will bear testimony to the truth of what I say— any of them^ you, Lady Brooke, you, Captain Anson, were both present when my step-son quarrelled with me.' 'It is true,' replied those to whom she appealed ; ' we heard it.' ' You hear, Austen,' she said — ' we quarrelled. I told him abruptly what I had better have left unsaid. I told him that you had made' Hugh heir of Larchton Mere.' 4 You told him that before others — so cruelly, so publicly ?' said Sir Austen. ' Yes ; he irritated me, he angered , me, and I cried out to him that lie was no longer heir of Larchton Mere ; and tho...

'IHH DUKE'S WAY. The Duke of Wellington possessed a singular power of sleeping at will ; and doubtless this faculty greatlly contributes to efficient action uud mental power. On arriving ab St. Sebastian, during tbe Pen insular War, tbe Duke was informed tbat the breaching batteries would not open for two. hours. ' Thou,' said he, turning to his aide de-camp, ' the best thiag ire can do, Burgersh, is to go to sleep.' was f«»t asleep in a nioment,and Lord Burgersb speedily followed his example. On another occatioc, when the army was in full retreat, an officer suddenly announced the near approach of the enemy. Ou being loused by the aide-de-camp, the Duke said, ' Send ' You have been hotly pursued all the day ?' be inquirad. ' ' Yes, inv lord,' replied thu officer. ' Are tho troops Terr tired ?'

THE PALM TREE. ITS NATURAL HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 20 May 1899

THE PALM TREE. ITS NATURAL HISTORY. This invaluable tree figures in the legends, leligious ceremonies, nnd romances of every Semitic and many another Oriental race. To the botanist it is 'among the most attractive of plants, on account of the ancient allusions to its two sexes, and the need of fertilisation in order to the production of fruit. Tho Greek naturalist Theophrastus, who died nearly H00 years n.c, has left us a masterly work on tho history of plants, from which Pliny and the latter writers have borrowed with the most perfect freedom. The dis sertation is divided into ten books, and these again fall into numerous chapters. In ISook II. we , find the eighth chapter headed (/riirni Palmarnm in the Latin transaction, and under this heading wo have arranged all that the ancients knew of the natural history of one of the most valuable of trees. Atten tion is drawn to the fact, then but imper fectly understood, and only elucidated in a scientific way during the past centjiiy, th...

GENERAL ITEMS. Sheep are used aB beasts of burden in India and Persia. Women aro employed as letter-carriers in several districts in France. Italy has a higher murder-rate than any other country ill the world. Two-thirds of the royal families of Europe aro of German origin. The largo gnns of modern navies are worn out after they havo boen used about sevonty-five times. Powdered rico is said to bo remarkably otticacinua in checking bleeding from . cuts and bruiaoe. Bells are never used on Mahomedan mosques, for the Moslems believe that the sound of bells conjures up ovil spirits. Asparagus is so plentiful on the Russian steppes that the cattle eat it like grass. The seeds are sometimes dried and used as a substitute for coffee. One of the hottest spotB on tho globe is the region around the Dead Sea. The sea is said to loae at least one million tons of water a day by evaporation.

Somehow, my thoughts went back to the timo when she hod stood hetoro me aa iny muster's young and blooming bride. It always seemed queer to me, even then, -. thut sho should Imve been so fond of him ; Much an eccentric, reserved sort o man as he wus, never saying two words when one would do. Ho wus so many years older than herself, too, and 90 much taken up with Ins scientific books and queerly-written slabs, thut he did not seem, Co my mind, the sort of man to be a lover ; anil yet what n winsome bride he had ! Her hair was lack as jot then, and linns in a bunch of shining ringlets at each side of her face. The gown she came home in was of lavender salin ; and well do I remember the white silk bonnet she wore, with its overhanging veil of lace, that cast such flickering shadows across her fair forehead.

READY TO PERISH. Clarence Mansfield stood under the clear, autumn moonlight in a secluded spot in Hyde Park, a homeless, hopeloss, stricken man. He wa3 filled with despair too deep for words, and the most bitter thought iu his heart was that he had been brought to this terrible pass by his own mad folly. The quiet sturs shone above him ; and tho night winds sighed mournfully through the trees und amid the long grass us tho despairing jnan moved slowly ulong, and thon sunk upon a seat with a groan. A sound struck his ear — :the hour called . aloud by many clocks. He mechanically drew from his pocket a handsome gold watch, nnd by the uncertain light regarded its face. As he re placed the watch in his pocketabitter smilo crossed his pnle fuco. ' What matters tho our V he said aloud. The man was in that lonely spot with a fearful purpose — he had come there to die.
