The Tables Turned, or How Mr. Pepper was Cooled. Written Expressly for THE WATCHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902

The Tables Turned, or How Mr. Pepper was Cooled. Written Expressly for The Watchman. By Budoeuvgah. Mit. and Mits. Pepper liavb just returned from their honeymoon, which they had spent among the -wild but beautiful scenery of the Blue Mountains, to their commodious residence, Cayenne House, No. 13 Chili-street, overlooking the Centennial Park. Mr. Pepper'-having married rather late in life, is disposed to entertain rat'jer crude ideas on the question of wifely obedience, and is resolved to begin his new life by exacting from his spouse such compliance to his wishes as he fancies he is entitled to, so on the very first morning after their return home lie thus addressed her: •. "Mrs*'Pepper, I labour under the impression that it is high time you were preparing breakfast. As xuy former housekeeper understood inv wishes with regard to this matter, I had no need to give her any further directions respecting them—but;with you it'is quite different. As you have never taken a meal in this h...

For Sunday Afternoon. PENTECOST. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902

Tor Sunday Afternoon. PENTECOST. By A. Lloyd Thomas. 1 Co. 3, 1C, Know ye not that yo are a tcinple of God and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you (R. V.) If there is any doubt about the day of Our Lord's resurrection being colled Easter, as would appear from Ben Israel's letter, based as it seems to be on the mummeries indulged in by Ritualistic and Soman Catholic Cliurches; no such question can possibly be raised against the day we honor on account of its being the anniversary of the first outpouring of the spirit when:— Pricked to the heart three thousand cried "What must we—can we—do ? We nailed the Just One to the tree The Prince of Life we slew. The apostles1 memorable address on that occasion, prefaced as it was by the prophet Joel's words, then only partially fulfilled, but used in so marvellous a manner by the spirit of God that, to that cry:— The answer came, but not in words By human wit devised: And o'er thut mighty host was heard "Repent and be baptized." The epistle...

BURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902

Bunvs. the pot national poet of Sc« tlnnd, is worshipped by all creeds and nationalities. Ho left behind, hiin a ric.li heritage of poetry, teeming with " wise saws and modern instances" of humane nature and practical experience of life. The line, " Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn," can be echoed to-day by thousands in the Commonwealth. ..It is interesting to learn that Burners cottage and^homqstend q£te been^e^tored as nearly as possfble to tho state tTioy were in when Burns's father erocted them and resided there. "With a view to preserving carefully the collection of relics, a veiy line hall has been built.

The Literary Lounger. BIBLE IGNORANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902

The Literary Lounger. BlIlLE IGXOIIAXCE. I hear a good deal about Bible ignorance, and in many quarters I find arguments, more or less logical, advanced to account for tliis state of matters. One reason, I tliink, is that we are getting so that we take the Bible too much for granted, just as we do Shakespeare. The common people do not read Shakespeare today, though in earlier times everybody did who read anything solid. And why ? Because we have heard so much a^out Shakespeare that we are disposed to tliink we know enough. "We are ready to take him for granted as the greatest of all English classics, and let it go at that. We admit Shakespeare, and turn to something more novel and unexploited. That is quite a general, though unconfessed, sentiment among the mass of reading people today; and the same feeling pievails about the Bible. We encc unter Bible Literature, analytical, expository, exegetical, critical, eveiy\x=req-\ where, and in all possible forms. The Bible lias become—ns C...

The Protestant Watchtower. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902

The Protestant Watchtower. Popish Persecutions— « _ Have been usually carried on with the political machinery of Parliament, law courts, and gaols, compelled to do Rome's bidding. The history of the Papacy is a history of politis, and a very dirty history it is; full of deceit, debauchery, and bloodshed. The Belgian people have a hard struggle with the spiritual octopus that strangles nations, and sucks out   the life blood until, as the Romish Prime Minister of his country a few years ago, said "the nation, was anæmic" Lovers of freedom will sympathise with the Belgian people in their death grapple with Popish tyranny, which it is to be hoped, they will crush forever. That Other Despotism— The Greek Church, has aroused the Russian people to resistance of a spiritual incubus very similar to Popery. The Greek Church is just as bigotted, cruel, and superstitious; and a wide-spread disaffection is manifest, not only among the masses of the Russian Empire, but also in the a...

The Editor's Letter Box. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

Tlie Editor's Letter Box.ll Alone.—You admit you hare learned shorthand. The capacity to write and transcribe it, is not by any means the only acquirement necessary to make a competent reporter; but it I is practically the foundation on which the reporter must build his reputation. You should cultivate a clear and expressive literary style? and endeavor to writo with good taste. There are several manuals, written by recognised authorities which you might study with advantage. Cobbettfs " English Grammar" (Ward, Locke & Co.) is a capital guide to grammatical composition, and "The Queen's English" (Q-. Bell & Sons) is an excellent guide to accuracy of expression. One of the first departments of newspaper work is paragraph work. The skill to write acceptable "pars" on the wide range of subjects touched on in our newspapers can, of course, only come with experience, but the novice should lose no time in acquiring sufficient ability to write good " pars " on ordinary subj...

AN INTERESTING SIGHT. I Wo had the pleasure of visiting Balmain Branch last Tuesday, along "with .Councillor "Watt. A fine' programme d£ songswas' submitted. Special mention must he made of a young lady whose recitation took the audience by storm. A few words of encouragement from Mr, "Watt, words such as that brother can give, were very helpful.

Total membership, 200. "Well done Balmain. Prom information to hand from Par...

Our debt to Holland. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

Our debt to Holland; ClLAS. E. Suttox Tuiixsh. The pr&^nt illness of tae Queen of Holland calls attention once more to this little nation, which yet occupies so great a place in the history of Europe. It is well known that the ^country is surrounded by envious and coveWtts eyes, eager to make a people's troubles their opportunity- Holland has made eaoimous sacrifices in the past for that independence which is to-day her proudest possession, and it would indeed be a calamity if, through failure in her uynasty, she ,is deprived of this boon. The present Queen is the last of her race, and with a vacant throne there is every reason to fear that trouble will arise. That this terrible disaster may bo s averted must be the heartfelt *wish of all who prize liberty. " May this country," exclaimed the Queen Regent, in a proclamation she found it necessary to put forth, " become great in everything in "which small nations can be great." This is the spirit which has animated *he inhabit...

Archbishop Kelly and State Aid to R.C. Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

Archbishop Kelly and State Aid to EC/Schools. [By KEV. J. E. <~!ABBUTHEBS.] The claim set up by Archbishop .Kelly at Manly on Sunday last for State assistance to Homad Catholic Schools is one that has beea so frequently made of late that it may be regarded as a standing demand of the Roman Catholic authorities in this State. Benefit is' incumbent on those of us who oppose' the demand to state as publicly as the Archbishop has done our reasons for so doing. So far as I am concerned, I do this in no spirit of hostility to Roman Catholics as such. They are citizens, possessing the same rights as all other citizens have—but no more. Their Church is also entitled to the same perfect toleration as other Churches enjoy, and if any State emoluments are being dispensed, that Church is entitled to a shave of the same, proportioned to its position in the population of the State. So far as present arrangements are concerned, the Homan Catholic Church lias on this score no reasonable ...
