Coonamble District. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Coonamble District. [By Rambler.] A storm of great violence passed over this dis trict on Sunday afternoon last, 11th instant. At Gunyelah (Billeroy), where your correspondent happened to be at the time, it blew a perfect hurri cane, unroofing bark tenements, beating under the' eaves and deluging rooms, tearing off limbs from the trees, and oven uprooting the trees themselves. It is estimated that fully three .inches of rain fell at Gunyelah and Billeroy, while about two inches n.lt -i. TT-l ? ? J /S1\.

As a matter of course, the country is immensely benefitted by this timely downpour. Indeed, a complete metamorphosis has come over the entire scene. The recent brown and barren waste has given place to a stretch of verdant fertility, which has dissipated all fear for the flocks and herds, and kindled, I trust, a spirit of universal gratitude to the ' Give...

Literary Eews, Notes, etc. I In Mr. Prothero's life of Dean Stanley is given the letter written to him by the Queen on the death of Lord Beaconsfield, in April, 1881. The Dean was an admirer of Disraeli and preached a sermon on his life at Westminster Abbey. Tbe Queen wrote : — ' Dear Dean, — Thank you very much for your sym. pathy in the Iocs of my dear, great friend, whose death on Tuesday completely overwhelmed me. His devotion and kindness to mo, his wise counsels, his great gentleness combined with firmness, his one thought of the honour and glory of the country and his unswerving loyalty to the Throne, make tne death ot my dear Lord Beaconsheld a national j calamity. My grief is great and lasting. I know ho would wish to rest with the wife he loved so I well, and not in Westminster Abbey, where, how ever, I am anxious tbat a monument should be erected to his memory. — V.R. and I.'

Blood-stained Gold. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

| Blood-stained Gold. I ' I know where there 19 a piece of gold that four men cannot lift with their bare hands.' Pancho Gonzalez made this remark to me aB he and I were sitting alone at our camp-flre in one of the lonely canyons of the Guadeloupe mountains ? iu Western Texas. Joking was not one of Pancho's characteristics. He was rather sober and taciturn, and not given to speaking often unless spoken to. For three years I had known Francisco, or Pancho, as be was called for short, and during that time we had come to be pretty good friends. He was a handsome, brigan dish looking fellow, spoke English well, ana core traces of what was probably considered in his country a good bringing up He had always been reticent as to his past, but I had many theories of my own in regard to his former occupation in his native land. 'Yes,' he answered, as I urged him to go on with his story. ' I will tell you all about it. I never told anyone else because it is dangerous ; but I can trust you not ...

Saved by his Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Saved by his Wife. One of the most touching stories in the history of those Fren«h prisons from which so many politi cal offenders have been sent to the guillotine is that of Couat Lavallette and hiB heroic wife. The count was imprisoned in 1815 in a Paris prison — one of the many victims of a re-action in political feeliag. He was condemned to the guillotine. Every effort was made by his' wife and friends to obtain his pardon, but in vain. When he had but forty-eight hours to live his wife came to him and explained a plan for his escape. He protested against it, but she was firm, declaring, when he spoke of the risk to herself, that she should surely lie if ha perished by the gnillotine. At five o'clock on the day before he' was to be jxecuted, the countess came to his cell, accom panied by their little daughter Josephine, and by a t'riend, Madame Dutcit. She wore a long cloak, and brought with her a black skirt. She said to her husbasd : ' Everything is ready. These things will di...

EUWYLONG, RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

EUWYi.OWG, P&Y&iOfJD TERRACE. On Saturday last a very enjoyable tea and con cert' was held in the school grounds, Euwylong under the auspices of the local Progress Committee, and these gentlemen are to be warmly congratu lated on the highly satisfactory way in which all the details were arranged and carried out. There was only one drawback, occasioned by that perverse and erratic individual, the Clerk of tbe Weather, refusing to be controlled by the Progress Committee or any one else. The visitors, however, paid little heed to his sullen looks, for despite black clouds and muddy roads the grounds were crowded early in the afternoon. After a time the good temper of the visitors re-acted upon the, weather; sunlight crept between tho clouds, aud blue skies pre vailed for the lemainder of the evening. A pretty marquee stood in one corner of the grounds, and in it was spread a most de licious 'tiffin.' The prettily decorated tables fairly groaned beneath the weight of eve...

MILLER'S FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

MILLER'S FOREST. The monthly meeting ot the Progress Committee was held ou Monday evening, the 10th instant. The attendance was very fair. Mr. W. Osborn, (President), occupied the chair. Minutes » f previous meeting were read and confirmed. The President was then instructed to purchase a cover ing for the flood boat. The Secretary was in structed to write to the Road Superintendent re a complaint made that some person lifts the floodgate ou tho now drain near Gallen's, and allows the tide waters to flow through, thereby causing damage to the drain and roadway. A resolution was moved by Mr. Wliitmarsh, secondrd by Mr. W. Monkly, that the Secretary be instructed to write to the manager of the steamship com pany, complaining of the very unsatisfactory way in which the boats are calling at the wharf for produce ; also the way produce is ex posed to all weathers through the dilapidated con dition of the shed, which was destroyed by the flood.

DISTRICT NEWS. OSWALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. I [From our Correspondents.] OSWALD. The Grape Harvest. — At the beginning of tho season we mado it our business to visit and inspect the above verdant little oasis by the river, and at that time, ifc will beremembered, we were able to give a glowing account of the forward condition of the vineyards of the place, and to hold out high hopes of a prosperous harvest for the vignerons there. It was but a dream, however; a mirage of the imagi nation that melted away with the advance of the summer, and left only disappointment in its stead to reward the industry of the husbandman and the lavish hand of nature. We were down there again on Wednesday, and in a conversation we had with Mr. A. Harmon we learned that his grape crop at least has been ft dismal failure, and that tbe crop barely paid for the labour of harvesting it. Mr. Harmau had, at the beginning of the season, .; over eight acres under grape vines, and at that time a more beautiful or promising vineyard would hav...

Miseries of Matrimony. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Miseries of Uatrimony. Fielding, the novelist, married a maid servant. Sir Thomas More's wife scolded him on the eve of his execution. Moliere, at the age of 40, married an actress aged 17, who soon ran away from him. HajUtt's wife caved nothing for his abilities, and kept hi in in hot water by her temper. Milton had trouble with each of his wives, the fault being perhaps, as much his own as theirs. Coleridge left his wife and children without apology or farewell, and never would see them ft!?ain. Catherine II. of Russia had her husband assassi nated, and from his death to her own ruled alone. Napoleon often swore at Josephine, and when she cried told her to hush, ' It makes your nose red.' Shelley married an innkeeper's daughter who proved uncongenial. He left her and she com mitted suicide. Bon Jonson's wife went to the inn after him if he stayed too long and brought him home, tongue laBhing him all the way. Boswell's ' Uxioriana' is a collection of his wife's sayings to him, whic...

Fortune Came too Late. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Fortune Came too Late. Seme strange things happen in mining camps. The number who have worked and delvad in follow ing a prospect nntil their money or their patienee became exhausted are many. And it not infre quently happens that such parties live to learn that they abandoned their claims when a few more days' work, or possibly ft few more strokes with the. pick, would have revealed the lead which they hadi worked to find. A story was told to us by an old miner of an East ern college professor who went to America in early days and started to prospect in some of the quarts leads around Grass Valley. When he arrived there he had 70.000 dols., and he bought up quite a number of claims and spent his money freely in prospecting them. He worked with a buoyant heart, confident that hiB labour and investments would be remunerated. He had a charming wife and four bright children. One thousand after another of his money was sunk into the ground until finally his last dollar was gone, and fro...

Curiosities of School Examinations. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 24 February 1894

Curiosities of School Examina tions. In the Canadian Magazine, Mr. J. L. Hughes, a Toronto school inspector, gives a number o£ curiosities of school examinations. Here are Borne o£ the good stories related by Mr. Hughes : — ' 'Whomade you ?' asked a primary teacher. The little girl addressed evidently wished to be accurate in her reply — ' God made me so long' — indicating the length of a short baby — ' and I crowed the rest.' ' 'Who were the foolish virgins ?' brought the prompt answer from a wise little girl — 'Them as didn't get married.' ' Boys,' said a teacher, ' can any of you quote a verse from Scripture to prove that it ia wrong for a man to have two wives P' He paused, and after a moment a bright boy raised his hand. ' Well, Thomas,' said the teacher, encouragingly. Thomas stood up and said solemnly, 'No man can serve two masters.' The question ended there. The words 'Hin Satanic Majesty' occurred in a story read in one of the Toronto public schools. ' How msny know who his...
