mmm [?] CHAPTER L THE ENROLLED VOLUNTEERS. It was on the evening o! the 10th oE March, 1793; tea o'clock was striking from Notre Dame, and each stroke sound ing emitted a sad and monotonous vibra tion. Night had fallen on Paris, not boisterous ami stormy, liut cold, damp and foggy, fnris itself at that time was not the Paris of our day; glitteriug at night with thousands of reflected hguts, the Paris of busy promenades, of lively chftt, with its riotous suburbs, the scene of audacious quarrels and during crime, but a fearful, timid, busy city, whose few and scattered inhabitants, even jn cross ing from one street to another, rancou cealing themselves in tne uarKness 01 i'-= alleys, and ensconcing themselves be hind their porte-cocheres, like wild Vasts , tracked by the hunters to tboir wir. As we have previously said, it was the j eTOning of the 10th wf lUrcli, li'JS. A , lew remarks upon the extreme situation j which had produced the changed aspect of the capital before we commence...

The Sketcher. A Friendly Wrestle. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
The Sketcher. A Friendly Wrestle. The large lawn at the back of the riverside hotel is in pressing want of a roll and a shave and a brush-up. In normal times of tea parties and trades men's outings this matters little ; this evening the growth of grass on the hil locks causes folk to stumble and to suspect practical jokes. The bill in the diamond-paued window says that, to night will occur A Friendly Wrestle in the Lancashire style for a Purse of Two uunds Ten. Jack Lucas v. Charley Rooke. Admission, 3d. Lovers Ales and Spirits iu the Neighbourhood. The wooden tables of the two summer houses at the end of the uneven lawn have been ejected to enable th ewrestlers to dress for the struggle.

On the tables two stout ladies (the property of tlieir respective hus bands, arguing loudly with others at one of the summer-hous...

Sneezing. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
Snceziiig- Sneezing is a reflex act caused by an irritation of some portion of the large nerve supplying sensation to the face. Excessive sneezing may be the result of some irritant, usually of vegetable ori gin, coming in contact with the mucous membrane liuiug the nose, or it may be associated witb some general disorder. Whooping cough aud asthma are often aecoiimaiiieii !-v violent Ills of sutw.inir. Persons of a ' gouty' tendency are often afflicted with frequent sneezing, aud the same is true of persons who possess a somewhat hysterical or exceedingly ner vous temperament. A sneeze aud a cough exert much the same effect over different portions of the respiratory tract. In sneezing an effort is made to get rid of some substance irritating the mucous membrane of the nose ; iu coughing the same tliiug- is attempted for the throat. Sneezing is iu some instances produced by looking at a strong light or vivid colour. Tho inflammation may be increased, if uot. actually produced, by ex...

The Japanese Toilet [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
The Japanese Toilet. Itoften seems to a' stranger as If the Japanese were striving for the shadow rather than the substance of cleanliness. This Is especially notable of tlieir baths, which are used over and over again by successive persons, In the order of their dignity and Importance, until the water becomes far from inviting. The result is practical cleanliness for the average, however. In Ironing clothes, the Japs, like the Chinese Sings and Wung-s who have come hither, spurt water upon them from their mouths. From 5 to 7 in the their teeth, an act wliicli is, in warm weather at least, generally performed in public, with a toothbrush whose handle is a foot and a-half long. In a country village the toothbrush Is dipped in the brook, which flows, rank with sewage, from the villa and the rice fields. As a natural result, cholera, dysentery, and typhoid fever spread rapidly wherever they gain a foothold. In the larger cities a purer water supply and more know ledge of hygienic laws ...

On June 22nd (Jubilee Diy) a labourer's wife, named Harvei', at Bedinins.er, near Bristol, gave liirth to twins.

Short Story. Lil and the Others. — ^ A cat -was the cause of it all ; a fact which E,il insisted was most, peculiar, as she had always held the feline spe cies in especial abhorrence. The three girls, Lilias Maynard, Prue Palsgrave, and Mary Baldwin, kept house together, and a very pleasant home it was. The house belonging to Pruo, who was the possessor of a hand some income, and her liberality enabled the other girls to live in a style to which they could otherwise have had no pretension. Both depended upon their own exertions, Mary a« a teacher in the High School, Lil as a shorthand writer In a railway ollice. Prue was considerably older than her companions, who admired her for her extensive ex- j perience of life. ] Prue, a woman of speculative and theoretical tendencies, was honestly do-! voted to Lil, and excessively jealous of ; nny interference with her own influence. | Lil herself was an impulsive young person, thirsting for everything that' was sweetest in life, and feeling...

The War Cloud. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
The War Gioud. The very emphatic intimation issued by the British Government on the Chinese question bears an ominous warning. Sir Michael Hicks Beach, the' Chancellor of the Ex chequer, has announced that Eng land will oppose, even to war, any action on the part of other nations which would impair the trading greatness of the empire is contained much more in its enormous trading interests than in its actual landed area, and figures show that English ships carry infinitely more of the Chinese trade than all the other na tions of the. world put together, so that she has something to look after which is well worth fighting for. But the odds against her in a war . on Chinese territory are very great indeed ; her most likely enemy would be Russia, and the English ! navy would have little opportunity ! of helping the army, for the fighting ! would be probably confined at first ; to the borders of Russia and China, j The Russians have just completed , their railway line, which connects St...
