A mysterious Impulse. Have You Ever Felt Like This? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898
A Mysterious Impulse. Have You Ever Felt Like This? A good many years ago (says a writer in the ' Weekly Scotsman') I was stand ing at night on the Dean Bridge along with a friend of mine who has since gained distinction as a scholar and di vine. 'Have you ever,' he said, 'thought of the mystery of height? Have -yon ever experienced its curious influence ?' We compared our, experi ences and found them; tP bo partly simi lar and partly .??dissimilar. The effect of looking from a height. on my friend was to .arouse a desire to. precipitate himself from the altitude wherein' he stood, a desire that' increased the longer he gazed into the deep below. :. . I have since heard from certain others that their experience ds exactly similar. The height, on, the verge of. which they stand, at once, repels and fascinates them. ? They would shrink back from the abyss, yet the'! mystery of height', mas ters them,- and Retains them in a state of singular nervous tension. :, One man. : whom I know; ...

Andrew Lang on "Hacks." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898
Andrew Lang on 'Hacks.' The notions of. Major Pendennis, who had a hack for nephew, still exist. , So writes Mr. Andrew Lang. To be a hack, people think, is to bo destitute of genius and mechanical. Yet we could easily add to our list o£ men of genius who were hacks, like Thackeray in his early career, like Hood, like a hundred others r.f honourable names. The notion is that tho artiBt takes pleasure in his work, while the hack does not. But the hack can elevate his function by doing It with pleasure, with a zest, whatever the work may be. A man may delight, If he be happily tempered, even in making an in dex. To make an index is really rather enjoyable, and a good index, even, will not be compiled without enjoyment. No doubt Dr. Johnson enjoyed his own dic tionary. Mr. Lang can conceive a man writing with a zest even sermons nt half a-crown ; they will scarcely be worth the half-orown if he does not. The lowly estate is also elevated by its moHve, which may be the support of a fami...

Why He Hesitated. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 12 October 1898
Why He Hesitated. A clergyman was recently annoyed by people talking and giggling during the sermon. He paused, looked at the dis turbers, and said : ' I am always afraid to reprove those who misbehave, for this reason : Some years sinoe, as I was preaching, a young man who sat before me waB constantly laughing, talking, and making uncouth grimaces. I pauaed and administered a severe rebuke. After the close of the service a gentleman said to me, 'Sir, you have made a great mistake. That young man was an idiot.' Since then I have always been afraid to reprove those who misbehave themselves in church lest I should repeat my mistake and reprove another idiot. ' During the rest of the aermon there was good order.

Sat Upon. , A late police-magistrate was ft most painstaking judge in all hia cases; and in important ones it was his custom to defer summing up until the next sitting of the court. On one occasion he gave an exhaustive decision on a case, after which the lawyer for the plaintiff rose and questioned it. J. dlUVIIt 1UW) OU1U li'U tf 1/&O11 IU j J. cannot allow you to re-open this case after I have given my final decision. I may be wrong, but that ib my opinion.' The lawyer quickly replied : 'Then, your worship, I know it is no use my knocking my head against a brick wall. I suppose I must sit down.' The magistrate adjusted hiB eye glasses, and, looking sarcastically at the lawyer, Baid : ' Sir, I know it iB no UBe your knock ing your head againBt a brick wall ; bub I may add that 1 know of no one who could perform suoh an operation with loss injury to himself than you.'
