A VICTIM OF TWINS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

A VICTIM OF TWINS. [By C. M. Thompson.] Mr. and Mrs. Prescott stood on the piazza at the side of their cottage by the 6en- watch ing the twins. Standing with their backs to their parents, these young gentlemen were proudly regarding a gigantic backinet at the end of their tennis court. Directly behind the net was a small grove of scrubby pines, which in the twilight showed merely as an irregular blotch of black. Dressed alike in suits of white flannel the twins appeared against this in bold relief, like white silhouettes. The back-stop which the twins were so proudly regarding was, to tell the truth, rather shaky. They had somewhere found an old fish net, which they bad nailed to two poles. So ? ?', much of the work had been easy ; but the task ? \ of setting the poles upright in the ground had ?% been long and difficult. ? -: When the uprights were finally planted, and - their bases abundantly bolstered with rocks, ; they appeared desirous to fall into each other's % arms, like lon...

Ptle Jfdfe*. AUNT DOROTHY'S LETTER. My dear Nephews and Nieces— Something has happened this week which has given me a great deal of pleasure, because it shows that some of my little friends, at any rate, not only read my letters but are led by them to take notice of what is going on around them. Only a week or two aso I told vou about li.ivinc seen the swallows feeding their young and since then about seeing the little ones. being . taught to fly. I am glad to say that tftiib has led some or my little iriends to keep tlieir eyea on the swallows' nests and to watch the same things going on that I told you about aud tried to make clear to you, for I have heard from some of them that they have seen the older birds feeding their young as I said they did and teaching them to fly just in the same way that I spoke of. This, as I said before, has ideated me very much, as I think if we have a little time to spare and can, with out neglecting our duties, watch the ways and . doings of insects...

THE THIRD "AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

THE THIRD 'AT HOME.' The Theatre Royal was again filled to its utmost capacity on Tuesday evening1, when the famous American humorist, Mark Twain, held his third ' At Home,' regaling his guests with a repetition of his initial collection of good stories. There was no mistaking the cordial nature of the reception which greeted the most popular humorist of the century, and for two hours the attention of the audience was riveted by the recital of some of the best stories from his widely-read works. There could have been few among those present to whom the ' Jumping Frog of Calaveras County' was a perfect stranger, or to whom the eccentric gambler known as 'this yer Srniley' was totally unknown, and yet the history of the redoubtable couple as recounted by its originator sent the audience into fits of laughter, while the well-known recital of a personal encounter with a 'genuine Mexican plug ' was respon sible for a renewed burst of merriment. The gruesome story of the dead body discove...

THE FOURTH "AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

THE FOURTH 'AT HOME.' There was a fairly large attendance at the fare well matinee given by the celebrated American humorist, Mark Twain, at the Theatre Royal on;Wednesday, and the repetition of the collec tion of stories given at his second ' At Home ' gave universal satisfaction. . The audience fairly revelled in the humor of the incidents surrounding the stolen water-melon, and the gigantic enterprise known as Tom Sawyer's crusade tickled them still further. The pathos with which' the story of the old negress separated by slavery from her children was invested made a lasting impression, and the concluding ghost story as related by Uncle Dan'l riveted the attention and awakened the interest of the audience in a marked degree. Loud and continuous applause was accorded the prince of humorists at the conclusion of the ''At Home,' and a large number of the audience assembled on the platform of the railway-station to see the last of Mr. Clemens, who left for the eastern colony by the M...

HOW TO AVOID THE INJURIOUS EFFECTS OF Stimulants.— The present system of living— partaking of too rich foods, as pastry, saccharine, and fatty sub stances, alcoholic drinks, and an insufficient amount of exercise— frequently deranges the liver. I would advise all bilious people, unless they are careful to keep the liver acting freely, to exercise great care in the use of alcoholic drinks, avoid sugar, and always dilute largly with water. Experience shows that porter, mild ales, port wine, dark sherries, sweet champagne, liqueurs, and brandies are all very apt todisagree, while liljht white wines and gin or whisky largely diluted with soda water will be found the least objectionable. ENO'S 'FRUIT SALT' is peculiarly adapted for any constitutional weakness of the liver ; it possesses the powers ot reparation when digestion has been dis turbed or lost, and places the invalid on the right track to health. -A world of woes is avoided by those who keep and use ENO'S -; FRUIT SALT,' theref...

THE FATAL EXPLOSION. THK ADJOURNED INQUEST. The adjourned inquest on the ' body of Sidney Skewes Parker, who died from the effects of a chemical explosion recently, was resumed at the City Coroner's Office on Mon day morning by Mr. G. H. Ayliffe. Mr. R. H. Lathlean watched -the proceedings on behalf of the father of the deceased. Frank Johnson, a lad, deposed that on October 5 he met the deceased, with whom he agreed to make gunpowder. Though Mr. Parker told them they might manufacture half an ounce or an ounce witness thought that they need not restrict themselves to that quantity. The ingredients used were white sugar, saltpetre, and yellow prussiate of potash. Had made gunpowder on previous occasions, but could not recollect the quantity. On this occasion the proportions they used in making the gunpowder were — one of sugar, one of salt petre, and two of prussiate of potash.

SUNDAY-SUHOOL UNION. THE JUBILEE FESTIVAL. The jubilee festival in connection with the South Australian Sunday-school Union was continued in the Exhibition Building on Friday week, when a limelight entertain ment was given in the main hall for scholars and teachers. About 40 schools were repre sented, each being admitted in a body, and there were fully 5,000 people present. The seatinor accommodation was taxed to the utmost, and consequently the heat in the building was intense, but the fre quent . bursts of applause evidenced the fact that the entertainment was greatly appreciated. A large ecreen, 25 ft. square, ?was erected near the mum entrance, upon which an excellent assortment of views, includ ing Westminster Abbey, leading English buildings, the Killarncy Lakes, Scottish lakes, and several interiors of prominent cathedrals and universities were thrown. Altogether 130 pictures, nearly all new, were exhibited and each was accompanied by a brief description by the Rev. Edwin H. ...

CONGREGATIONAL UNION. THE ANNUAL MEETINGS. The annual meetings of the Congregational Union and Home Mission of South Australia were commenced on Monday. Tea was held at G o'clock in the Stow Memorial Church schoolroom, at which the chairman (Rev. Thomas Kyte) held a reception to the ministers, delegates, and their wives. This waa followed by a meeting in the church, which was largely attended. The Rev. T. Kyte, in giving the chairman's annual address, said he had taken as a subject 'Some of the perils of our social and religious life.' He did not wish to be classed among the croakers and pessimists who thought that of all periods in the world's history their lot had been cast in about the worst, but his faith was that they were living in about the best. They could rejoice that they lived in thiB age of broadening liberty, of growing light, and of Christian activity and success. In these colonies they enjoyed a freedom almostun unknown anywhere else in the world, and there was an abs...

LORD AND LADY BRASSEY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

LORD AND LADY BRASSEY. In view of Lord Brapsey's imminent arrival in his yacht the Sunbeam, we reproduce a sketch of the vessel, together with Lady Brassey's cabin, and a portrait of Lady Brassey herself. The new Governor of Vic toria is of courso no stranger to our shores, which he visited some years ago. His lordship has been twice married. His first wife was the author ot the lamous Voyage of the Sun beam' — a voyage round the world undertaken some 20 years ago. Lady Brassey died on the homeward voyage from Australia in 1887, and was buried at sea* Lord Brassey is one of the wealthiest of peers, and the reduction of his salary as Governor is not likely to have any effect upon his expenditure, which it is believed will be as lavish as that of his pre **? Ladt Bkasset. decessor. He will be greatly helped by Lady Brassey, who isdescribed as a woman of great personal charms and active habits. Lady Brassey, whom Lord Brassey married in 1S!W, is the youngest daughter of the late Viscou...

THE PEACE OF GOD. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

THE PEACE OF QOD. [By Proi'essob E. Aeihtage, M.A., of ?? . Bradford.] ' 'In nothing be anxious, but in everything by j-rayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace Of God which passctb all understanding shall guard your hearts and j our thoughts in Christ Je6us.'— PhiL iv. 6, 7. Surely there -is a benediction for us in the very words of this text. I think we ire all sensible of a deep tranquillity breathing in these words, and address ing us who are ? so often anxious and troubled and disappointed. But look at the man from whom they come ! Paul is in a strange city— he is in Rome. Poor though he is, he in the great, proud metro polis, and he is in a poor chamber in his own hired dwelling, and be is not alone. ?He is not alone ; there is a soldier with him, and that soldier is his gaoler. And as Paul writes these words, with every movement of his body there is the audible clanking of the chain p'y which his wrist is-bouud to the wr...
