BE CAREFUL WITH THAT LAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897

BE CAREFUL WITH THAT LAMP. I sincerely hope that Mis Filmer has abandoned the custom of keeping an oil lamp burning in her room of nights. She does not s*y what the necessity was, but I trust it no longer exists If possible to avoid it, no light should binn in a room wheiein people are sleeping. The reasons ought to be plain enough, yet we all need lessons in common caution. This lady had hers, and was foitunute incoming out out of the affair as well us she did. Writing about it she says : " It was in the summer of 1S8C, not long after the death of iny husband. I had been used to keeping an oil lamp burning in my room for convenience dining the night One night I accidentally over- turned the 1 imp, and a blaze kindled in an instant. TeniCed half out of my wits I sprang fIoni bed, seized the burning articles, and ran downstairs willi them just in time to prevent further disaster. Happily for me, I escaped with slight burns, but not from consequences of another kind. "The flight and s...

St. John. Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897

St John. Bai«-. The Divisional Hall on Friday 3rd Septem- ber presented an appearance which for color and aniaution woola certainly take a lot of beating. The Cake and Aproa Fair in aid of the funds of St. John's Church had long been a much looked forward to event, and the crowds of people who visited the Fair showed that the energetic committee which had the affair in hand were well acquainted with the ropes. Upon Mr T. S. Hope, who acted as Hon. Secretary the main burden in connection I with organisation and arrangements fell and that his efforts were in the right direction is proved by the big suocess which resulted. After the Mayoress, Mrs A. J. Draper had formally declared the fair open, the business of the evening began. The main stall was that of Mrs \V. H. Swallow where cakes of all kinds from the humble threepenny currant cake of childhood's happy days stood side by side with splendid wedding calces of enormous size specially imported by Mis Swallow from the South. Besides ...

The Commissioners and Rival Routes. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897

The Commissioners and Rival Routes. The Mundic Miner in dealing with the pro- posed connection to Georgetown by rail with either Normanton or Cairns publishes the following : " The report of the Royal Commission ap- pointed to inquire into and report upon the laws relating to mining for gold and other minerals, and the best mode in which assist- ance can be rendered to develop the mining resources of the colony is now before us. The minutes of evidence taken in the various fields, with appendices, fill 300 pages, while 78 pages are devoted to the report and recommenda- tions of the Coaam^foneis^ It is only to be npacted.üwt Brom na« composition of the Commission, comprising as it did iliree Ministerialists and two Labor members, there should be a divergence of views on some points of importance.

Show Suggestions. IDEAS BY A PRACTICAL MAN. IMPROVEMENT OR ABOLITION. INTERVIEW WITH A PROMINENT STOCK-OWNER. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897

Show Suggestions. IDEAS BY A PRACTICAL MAN. IMPROVEMENT OR ABOLITION. INTERVIEW WITH A PROMINENT STOCK-OWNER. With regard to our criticism of the recent annual Show held by the Cairns Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining Association, it was felt that criticism which is bare of direction to- wards improvement is of little value. In deal- ing wilh the Show space, considerations alone prevented us from saying then a good deal of what we arc about to say now. It was felt by us that the Cairns Agricultnral, Pastoral and Mining Association is an institution which if properly handled would prove a powerful factor for good in the district, and that mis- directed energy often does more harm than good. The admitted non-success of the last show, the poor sttendance and the paucity of exhibits at once suggested that something was wrong with the works of the Association and that unless the machinery were put into proper going order it would be as well to stop the whole affair for a period. A prom- ...

The Chillagoe Caves. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897

The Chillagoe Caves. [Br NOMAD] (Continued.) To those who pay a visit for bnt a day or two to this most interesting distriet, the " Royal Arch " caves will perhaps prove the piece-de-resistance In it is contained what ia in the greatest degree interesting in all of the other», besides having independent objects of interest which satisfy moie than mere curiosity. The "Royal Arch" is some two miles down the creek from those already mentioned, and the hill in which it is situated is surrounded by bold, rugged and fantastic rocks, miniature mountains of limestone, and an altogether strik- ingly enchanting environment. The country between is nicely undulating and as our visit was just at a time when nature was wrapt in luxuriance, and at the height of her season's beauty/ it appeared to be rather hospitable looking pastoral land. The hill itself is easily noticed by its many strik- ing and peculiar characteristics, the huge grey turrets being nearly blackened by long and continued exposu...

English as She is Broke. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897

English as She is Broke. English is said to be one of the hardest languages in the vroild for a foieigner to leam. The verbs and propositions are particularly puzzling.

"X begin to understand your Iancuase better," aaM »fc. wtmm^M^m.jnSSXf.".^ to me, -'but your verbs trouble me still. You mix them so with prepositions.

A LAND OP GOLD. Seattle, (Wash) July 29. C. M. M'Intosh, Governor of the Northwest Territory, in which is located the far-famed Klondyke district, is in Seattle, bein:; cn route to Rcflina, the capital of his wealth-laden land. The Governor, like many other re- putable men, freely subscribes, to the truthfulness of the stories sent out as to the richness of the new diggings.

It is of recent discovery, but already there are at least 0000 people on the ground, and nioie are flocking in that direction as f.ist as transportation can be secured.

In September List, at the head of a party of Indians, he left his hut, near Forty milo Camp, and started in a southerly direction, saying that he intended to find a new goldfield before his return.
