A RIGHTEOUS RECKONER. " For tho loyo of heaven," ho said, " givo mo a little work to do. Anything that I can turn my hand to." Tho proprietor looked him over. Ho waa docontly drosscd, young and intelligent and had evidently aeon better days. " I have some work," said tho proprietor, but it is of a rough sort." " Anything,any thing," cried the unfortun ate man. * So ho was set to work sorting bolts, but ho hadn't really started tho job when ho was noticed to Btagger slightly. " You must excuse mo," he snid brokenly, " but I haven't tnstod food for 24 hours." Thereupon tho proprietor dipped his hand into his pocket and brought up a 50-cent piece.

UNEXPECTED VERDICT. At a murder trial held some yeara ago in nil IriBli assize court a curious incident oc curred. The accused was charged with the murder of n man with whom ho had been at onmity for long time. It seemed that on the day the crime was committed the two men had met at u race-meeting, and blows were oxchanged between them, and ngain on tho Bamo evening at a tavern, whore the inter ference of some of those preBont alone pre vented another light. Tho prisoner vowed vengeance against hia enemy, and was seen to follow him when ho left the tavern. The body of tho victim was found tho next morning with the face so bar barously mutilated that the man could bo identified only by his dress. Tho circum stantial evidcnco against the prisoner was fo strong that there was no doubt of Iub guilt. However, he was asked, as a matter of form, what he liad to say in his defeneo. To the consternation of tho court, ho called the murdered man, aud tho supposed victim came forward. It was th...
A STRANGE OMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902
A STRANGE OMISSION. Curiously enough, neither the birth, bap tism, nor confirmation of Queen Victoria is a matter of official public record. One might suppose that, Hied away in itB appointed place among the State archives, there could be found a document formally setting forth the birth of the child who, though not heir-prcsumptivo to the throne at the time of the birth, was removed from it by only threo dcgreeB. But such is not the case. With regard to her birth, all that was deemed necessary was its announcement by the State officials, whose duty it was to be personally cogniBant of the fact. In the huge public records building in Chancery-lane,wherein are jealously guarded tho muniments of ancient landed titles and tho records of lloyal' treaties, one may see tho marvellously well-preserved Doomsday Book, which is the beginning of all thingB to the English conveyancer; tho solemn com pacts of cardinals, envoys, ambassadors, and ministers; the priceless records of Royal prerogati...

Waffle is from wafel, a word of Teutonic origin, meaning honoycomb. . Hominy is from auhuminca, the North American Indian word for parched corn. Gooseberry fool is a corruption of goose berry foule, milled or pressed gooseberrica. Forccmeat is a corruption of farce-mcat, from tho French, faree, stuffing, i.e., meat for stuffing. Sally Lunn was a pastry cook, who, at tho closo of tho eighteenth century used to cry the tea bread which bears her name about tho streets of Bath, England.

ANCIENT BRITONS' GRAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902
ANCIENT BRITONS' GRAVES. An important archscologieal discovery hag been made at a small place called Danes dale, near Driffield, by Canon Greemvcll, of Durham, acting under the auspices of tlio East Hiding Antiquarian Socicty. At Danes dale arc a number of mounds, which for years have been popularly and locally known as " Danes' Graves." Further investigation lias been made, with the result that Cation Greenwell has come to tho conclusion that these graves, which are protected by a wood, are not Danes' groves at all, but belong to an age at least a thousand years before the ConqueBt—that is, about 2,000 years ago, and prior to the ttoman invasion. In ono of tho tumuli laid bare wero found, not Oiily the bones of an ancient Briton, but tho iron tyro of his chariot, the iron bit and trappings of his horse, and a bronze pin, beautiful in de sign and enamelled. Tho pin is a spocimen of early British enamelling, and of a type -quite peculiar to the iron period. It has a peculiar twist in...
WONDERS OF A WATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902
WONDERS OF A WATCH. Very few of the many who carry watches ever think of the complexity of its delicate mechanism, or of the extraordinary and un ceasing labaurit performs, and how astonish ingly well it bears up nnd does its duty under what would be considered vory shabby treat ment in almost any other machinery. There are men who think a watch ought to run and keep good time for years, without even a drop of oil, who would not think of running a day without oiling a common piece of machinery, the wheels of which do but a fraction of tliD service. By way of gratifying his curiosity, a correspondent has made a calculation of the revolutions which the wheels of watch mako in a day and a year. The result is as suggestive as it is interest ing. For example :— The main wheel makes four revolutions in 24 hours, 1,460 in a year; the second or cen tre, 24 revolutions in 24 hours, or 8,760 ii&lt; a year ; the third wheel, 192 in 24 hours, or 70,080 in a year ; the fourth wheel—which...

The natives of the local tribe ore very wealthy, and there are designing mothers among the aborigines as woll as in the different classes of civilised society. The young men of the Nez Perces tribe are regarded somewhat as the scions of royalty in matrimonial circles. The maidens from all visiting tribes were brought to Lapwai to find husbands.
