Local and General News. Poisoned Baits. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
Local and General News. Poisoned Baits. We r erst t;- hear that the poison fiend is £b ut again. On Sunday night lost, we are iuformed, a valuable collie -!? g, the pr per ty of Mr. I'. F. Pott?, C.P.S , which dmiiig his absmce ou leave was in the care of Mr. H. Rro. k. of tbis town, vv.is poieoucil. The dog, so fir as we an learn, was not in the I habit of roa'i. ing ab?nt, but used to lie at the side -!ot-r v! Mr. Brook's residence all night. It is therefore moEb probable that the bait was thrown down somewhere close hamly, ami the dog devouring it was poisan ed and died. That there should be among ly distiibute poisoned baits about the town is to be deplored, ani we need hardly state tbat if the pcreon so offending can be con victed, the law provides a heavy penalty for Ench rn offence. In onr advertising columns Mr. Brook offers £5 reward tor the convic tion of the person laving the bait. Dr. W. B. Hush, Oakland, Fla., writes :- 'I employ Sander & Sjdb Pure Volatile E nc...

Rousing the Bishop's Servants. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
Bousing the Bishop's Servants. A quaint practice exists at the Bishop of London's Palace at Pulham, and this consists in what appears to be a time honoured custom of waking up the episcopal domestics by means of a long pole. At Fulharn the palace lodge-keeper has a reg-ulai- morning duty to perform in knocking up certain of tlie servants at. successive hours, beginning at about half-past 5. The venerable man is pro -iririari wii-Vi n Klpnder rod some 15ft. in length, and with this he raps on the antique casements of the servants' bed rooms in the quadrangle within the mas sive wooden gates of the large western archway, and he continues his attention until the sleeper gives a more or less grateful answer.
Too Much Haste. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898
Too Much Haste. ' Gazing upon the rugged mountain scenery of the Main Range, a young lady remarked : 'How strange that all this beautiful world should have been created and fin ished in the short space of six days '.' ' It does look as if it wasn't finished yet,' remarked a matter-of-fact man. It looks for all the world as if it had been thrown together in a hurry. It would have looked much more work manlike if it had taken three or four weeks to finish the job properly. Nothing that is done In a hurry Is well done.'

The desperado, according to the etiquette of his class, invited them to drink. One of tbe party, a tall, dignified son of person, abruptly declined. ' What,' said Brooks, ' do you mean to say that you won't drink with me?' 'We never, drink with strangers,' remarked the stranger with a fiery 3aok in his...

Our Sydney Letter. [From our Sydney Contributob.] Tho Sydney School of Arts, like its Bister institutions in the country, comes in for a good deal of ciustic criticism at times from some of its more go-ahead members. There is, no doubt, ground for reform with our in stitution, as it is undoubtedly manag ed on very conscrvali ve lines. Thp rrifo nf culiapi ml inn ic lurnrf* nniirr fia Gd per quarter, and. owing to Hie great number of subscribers, it is al most impossible for any ordinary citi zen to get a chance of the latest novel, although there might br several copies in the catalogue. One has to enter his name in a hook kept for the purpose, claiming a right to tha new work after the pTEon whoso name is ju«t above his own has had it. Of course, the reading room is well supplied, having almost everything in periodicals. Yet there is plenty of room for improve ment; the institution is not nearly bo popular as it should be. By the way, I notice that a number of the country newspaper...

' Novices are the best patrons of the lady cycling guide ; people who can ride, but who have not acquired the assurance necessary for riding afar in tlieir own country.
