ARAB HORSE MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
ARAB, HORSE, MAXIM?S. Let ydour colt be dbmesticated and live with youi from his tenderest age, and when a horse he will be simple, docile, fatihful, and inured to hardship and fatigue. If you would have your horse to sezve you on the day of trial, if you desire him then to be a liorse of truth, make him sober, accustombd to haid work, and inne cesible to fear. Do not beat your horses, nor speak to them in a loud tone of voice; do not be angry with them, but kindly reprove their faults; for they understand the language of man and ith meaning. If you have a long day's journey before yon, spare your horse at the start; let him frequently walk to recover his wind. Con inue this until he has sweated and dried tbree times, and you may ask of him what you ple'ase; he will not leave you in diffi culty. Use your horse as you do your leathern bottle; if you open it gently and gradually you can easily control the water therein; but if you open it suddenly the water escapes at once, and nothin...

A .LADY PROTECTED BY A CAT;. The Fifeshire Journal states, that a young lady, in the neighbourhood of Dun= fermline, has in her possession a large black cat, a very surly, ill-natured animal, It is,. however, a capital destroyer of ver min, anid as it shows no small attachment to its mistress, it is with" her a great favourite. This young lady, with another young lady, the other evening, sat up rather late, finishinga dress. As no gen tleman was gallant enough to see her friend home, who was rather timorous in going out at night, without a protector' the young lady volunteered her services, and escorted her friend hbme, a distan : of about half a mile, at? which, when they arrived, the young lady was saluted with the vehement mewing of a cat, which at first alarmed her. However, as soon as a light was got, she found that it was her own cat, which she lifted in her-arms withthllat expression of tenderness' becoming a lady towards a favourite. She was returning home, carry ing puss in...
STILL SHE ACCEPTED HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
-STILL SHE ACCEPTED HIM. "One word," she said, "before we part," and her bright eyes' glowed in the mellow light of the turned-down lamp. "Are you sincere P" "I ain sincroe," he replied,: in tones whose truthfulnese eauld not be doubted by anyone, save the most ogbtfrmed pesri. mist. "Then yeou cannt give met a" ilaca' by' LakeComo ?" ahd she looked into his'L oy as if shew6ould reai! his inmot soul : . "I camnot,"' he answbred;. "Not even a stone fronli . .,. "No." There was a wozli-rful fi~i ulilo a don't-you-forget-it-ness in the tones' in" which this momentous monosyllabld' as spoken. "Not even a villa in the suburbs?" '!Not even that,' darling."' There was an anguish in his accents that indicated a mind wholly given up to the gnawing inroads of a sharp-toothed affair. "What can you offer me, then ?" she asked; "what can you offer me as an in centive to induce me to become your bride ?" "A share in 30s. a week, with a pro spect of a rise next spring," He said this with all the d...
THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
THE WOOL MARKET. The Now Zealand Loan and mIercantile Agoncy Company, Limited, issue the following monthly reprt of the Sydney Markets:- Woo.--Tho turnover in, this article has again been very large, balky catalogues being the order of the day up to the tonmoencoment of the Christmas holidays, which, as useal, had the effect of contracting tihe volunnme of business passing in the staple. Tho arrivalsof wool to date, although showing a great falling off on the quanitity re ceived during thIe precedling montlh, are largely in excess of the arrivalt to a similar date last year. and the reception of such large supplies, although attended in some inLstances with some little incon venience, ims, on tihe whole, been carried out with - ?ntedition and success. It is a matter of great satisfaction to note that the lorivals in Sydney are seemingly swelled by consignments which have in fornmer years gone further south for sale or lshipment.

THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. The aspect of affairs along the wharves this morning was quiet (says Wednesday's Melbourne Herald). The men are;making no demonstration, trusting to a peaceful solution of the difficulty between them selves and the shipmiasters. The centre of attraction was the s.s. Leura, as the owners aremaking strenuous efforts to induce nmen to assist in unloading her. So determined are they to get the cargo discharged from the vessel that the wharfinger himself and half a dozen clericks from the leadoffice areperforming lumpers' duty. The spectacle is somewhat amusing. The clerks appear to great advantage in their attire. Fashionably-buttoned boots, masher collars and ties, and starched white shirts really do seem incongruous to the situa tion. The spectators appreciate the humour of the, thing, and occasionally lively sallies tickle the crowd immensely. One lumper philosophically remarked to a friend, "that the mashers, when in' a few days they had returned to thei...

Seymour) severely wounded, the ship so roughly treated that the, remaining officers were considering the necessity of surrendering-a cock, having escaped from his coop, suddenly perched himself upon the stump of the main-mast,' clapped his wings, and crowed with ex treme vociferation. In an instant three hearty, exhilarating cheers rang thoughout the ship's com pany. All classes immediately renewoed their efforts to defend the ship; victory at the same time appearing to be inclined towards the British fleet, and succour being rendered to th...
