The sting, for Aut lians? of the following and article, contributed by Mr Frederic Green its wood to " Macmillan's Magazine " ied in the in's tail of it : and Though the risks of a general warmust was needs weigh heavily on all the Continental a-. Governments, they do not weigh equally. The older and more civilised Govern Sof ments must feel them most, even re Edy snecitated France for one; but, for is manifest reasons, Germany and Italy feel r of them more than France; and Russia least of the all. Partly from geographical extent and conditions, patty from a certain capability of s self-eupport patly from the very barbarism d orhalf-barbarism of the country, therisks of in thedreadedwr ar are nothing like so great for nd Russia as forthe otherEuropean Powers.

The Guillotine at Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

The Guillotine at Work. Eugene Bcaujean, who in July murdered an unfortunate named Valentine Dolbean, was guillotined near the Pont Colbert at Versalles. Pauline Siller, his accomplice, who urged lHeaujean to commit the crime, and stamped on the dying victim was informid that her centence was commuted. Beauieanhad been awake two hours when the magistrates and the executioner entered his cell. He displayed great courage, and was left with the chaplain, to whom he confessed, but declined to hear mass or receive the com. munion. He was then taken on a cart at a slowp?ace to the Pont Colbert,about half a mile from the prison. Beanjean jeered at the crowd and the mounted gendarmes in thoroughly Parisian slang. Arrived at the scaffold, he embraced the chapiain and delivered himself up to Deibler. Forty seconds after, all was over" The body, which was buried at the Gonarts Cemetery at Versailles, will not be handed over to the medical faculty, at the special request of the condemned man. I...

A Memoir of Lola Montes. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

A Mlemoir of Lola MRontes. Lola Montes, Countess of Landsfelt, is well.nigh forgotten by this generation, but there are some interesting glimpses of this once-famous person in the Memoirs of Charles Godfrey Leland (Hans Breitmann) just published by Mr Heinemaun. She was the great favorite of the King of Bavaria till, as Mr Leland says, the Jesuits and the Munich mob proved too much for her. Mlr Leland knew her in later years in America, and he thinks he must have had a great moral influence over her, because, as far as he is aware, he is the only friend she ever had at whom she never threw a plate or a book and whom she never attacked with dagger, poker, broom, chair or other deadly weapon. Her highly-privileged friend declares thathealwayehad great and strange respect forher singular talents. She is described as very emall, pale and thin, with beautiful blue eyes and curly black hair-a typical beauty, with a face full of character, and a person of great and varied reading. She had ...

The Miners' Strike in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

The Miners' Strike in England. The London " Daily Chronicle" adopts a very strong tone in support of the miners who are out on strike in England against a reduction or 25 per cent, in their wages. It say.: "The fact remains that the Federa tion miners are fighting for their homes and their families with the British pluck which never says die. If they wore red coats instead i of fustian and were keeping out a foreign invader instead of the men who would force them back into perpetual poverty, the country would ring with their heroism, and no words would be too strong in which 1 to paint their noble qualities. We main tain, however, that the miners in resist ing the attempt to lower the standard of living are doing a national service which every patriot should be grateful for. They are fighting the battle of Labour all along the line. The domination of a foreign Power appeals to everyone as a hateful thing. As a matter of fact it is not more dreadful than the domination of ideas which...

Together. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

Togither. We two in the fever and fervor nrd glow On life's htgh tide have rejoiesd together, We have looked out over the glittering snow. And knew that we were dwelling in Summer weather. For the seasons are made bythe heart, I bold, I And not by the out-door heat or cold. We two in the shadows of pain and woe, Have journeyed together in dim, dark, places, Where black-robed Sorrow walked to and fro, And Fear and Trouble with phantom faces I Peered out upon us and froze our blood, Though June's fair roses were all in bud. We two have measured all depths, all heighte, We have bathed in tears, we have sunned in laughter. We haveknown all sorrows and all delights They never could keep us apart hereaftor. Where ever your spirit was sent I know I would defy earth-or heaven-to go. If they took my soul into Paradise And told me I must be content without you, I would weary them so with my lonesome cries, Aud the ceaseless questions I would ask about you They would open the gates and set me ...

The Poet Laureateship. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

of The Poet Laureateship. at Gray, the poet, was offered the post of Ps t'oet Laureate on the death of Colley Clibber i in 1757, butrefused it for the contemptuous it reasons set forth in a letter to his friend s 3loon. The psssage which is quoted in the e article on Contororary Poets, in the new r number of "The Edinburgh" is ta follows : * "If any great man would say to me, 'I 7 will make you ratcatecher to his Majesty, a with a salary of L200 a year and two butts 0 of the best Malaga ; and though it has been y usual to catch a mouse or two, for form's sake, in public once a year, yet, to you, sir, we shall not stand upon these t things,' I cannot say that 1 should jump at e it. . . . but I do not pretend to blame anyone else that has not thesamesensations. For my part, I would rather be a trumpet. major or a pin.maker to the Palace."

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

THE WIDE WORLD. It appears that Shakespeare was right afer all in calling the toad " venomous" as aell as "ugly," and the witches in Macbb, when they added a toad to the ingredients of the poisonous "holl-broth," knew what they were about. Dr Leonard Guthrie has come upon a curious account of a wicked Italian woman, whose hus band was dying of dropsy. He took so long about it that his wife became tired of the process, and thoughtshe wouldhelphim on. She accordingly caught a toad and put it in his wine, so that he should drink the liquid and die, but instead of doing this, to her as tonishment he completely recovered. " Forty years ago," says a correspondent of the "Lancet, " " this story would have been scouted as mythical, but now we know that it s precisely what the woman would have expected if she had only been acquainted with the researches of modern pharmacology." The skin of the toad, it is explained, secretes a poison, the active principle of which-phrynin-hbs an action very ...

He es. coarted them to the bazaars, and bargained for them in Arabie. He got a boat, and took them fore sail. He vointed out the hoopoes flutter ing like big butterflies, and the golden bee eaters flashing overhead in the sunshine.

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

GENERAL EXTRACTS. If half the allegations agaiust him he true. Mr. Henry Chamberlain, who was committed for trial at iournemouth last month, is a decidedly promising young man. He affected, it would teem, a military role, and among the names he pressed into his service were the follow ing :-Earl of Airlie, Captain II. C. Berners. W. Eardley Wilmot, A.A.. ; Earl of Elgin, Captain D'Arcy Commerell, Lieutenant B3erners. After this it is not altogether surprising that he should have deluded the otlfficers at Christchurch Barracks, and induced them to parade for his inspection the battery of artillery stationed theLe. or that he should have got the Coastguard officials to show blue lights from tile pierhead for a despatch boat to come from Portsmouth to pick ltlt up. It these escapades hoverer, there is more of malevolent trickery than anything else. But one who posed suc cesstully as an earl might (says the " Westminister") have taken care that he should have been committed for trial on...
