The Devil's Own. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
The Devil's Own. When the ' Iuns of Court' Volunteers paraded before Kiug George III., some thing in the carriage of Hrskine's troops must, it is supposed, have impressed his Majesty. It is suggested that it might have been the bearing of Attorney General Law, who. according to Lord Campbell, never learned to know his vio-li^ fnni- frn\i\ lijo Tof+ i-n 41m il?lv nf his dismissal. At all events, the King inquired how She corps was recruited. ' They are all lawyers, sir,' said ISrs kine. ' All lawyers !' exclaimed his Majesty. 'Then call them 'The Devil's Own.' ' Aud ' Tho Devil's Own' they have remained to this day.
A Temperance Tale. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
A Temperance Tale. Sir Wilfrid Lawson says that he never received a knock-down till, espy ing a labourer walking along with the old familiar black bottle protruding from his pocket, he entered into conversation I with him and pointed out the misery ! which had resulted from the buttle, and earnestly exhorted the man to Hoe from its contents. The man was so over- I come that he took out the receptacle and | emptied the liquor into the road. Sir Wilfrieil's face boa mod with pleasure, aud, handing the man sixpence, he said, 'Take that ; it will buy you something better.' The man, to the disgust of Sir Wilfrid, entered a public-house and spent the sixpence in beer. The liquor he had thrown away was cold tea.

' 1 really cannot be bothered,' said the publisher, as he declined to examine the author's manuscript. ' It is of no use for mo to look at your sketch. We have hundreds of such things iu hand, and have really nn time in doiil with vours. even though you .were in a position to guarantee the cost, which I very much doubt.' 'J'heu Tolstoi, in true storybook style, dis closed bis identity, and the humbled publisher made every effort to secure the manuscript, but without avail.

A Cynical Fable. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
A Cynical Fable. Mr. Lanigan's fable of ' The Two Turkeys'' has a fine cynical flavour that prodigal sons will relish : ' An Honest Farmer once led his two Turkeys into his Granary and told them to eat, driuk, and be merry. One of these Turkeys was wise and one foolish. The foolish Bird at ouce indulged excessively in the Pleasures of the Stable, unsuspicious of the Future, but the wiser fowl, iu order that he might not be fattened ana slaughtered, fasted continually, morti fied his flesh and devoted himself to gloomy reflections upon the Brevity of Life. When- Thanksgiving approached the Honest Farmer killed both Turkeys, and. by placing a Rock 4u the interior of the Prudent Turkey, made him weigh more than his plumper Brother. ' Moral.— As we Travel through Life let us Live by the Way.'

A long spoon should be handed with it to take out the ice cream. A variation of this can be maJc without the vanilla ice cream.

Remarks on Drunkenness. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
Remarks on IM-iinkcniicss. Frof essor A. ? Crum Brown, In his re cent lecture on the eyesight and the movements of the head, delivered at the University Museum, Oxford, made some ?interesting remarks on drunkenness. Alcohol. makes all the reflex actions of the body sluggish, so that the nerves and senses perform their automatic or 'office' work, as the professor calls it, less promptly than usual. The con scious ' I' or ' Ego' of the person may not notice anything wrong, but even a moderate dose of alcohol may delay the transmission of a nerve signal to the eyeball, so much so as to affect the balance of his head, and make the world fcctly sober man sees the world go round if lie wags his head, because the 'office' work fails him, hut a little alcohol makes It fail still more rapidly. Even in ex treme Intoxication a man may see tlie world steadily if he can keep himself steady, but if he allows his head to move! he reels and staggers. It Is possible that a good many falls from scaff...

Federal Rivers. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
Federal Rivers. The cramped views of the Provin cialist have been very much in evi dence at the Federal Convention lately. There has not been any question of great importance dis cussed, the attention of the delegates : Being, for the most part, confined to '? the proposal for Federal control of oavjgable rivers. So much time was taken up in this discussion, and so many threats and forebodings in aujgea in, tnat one would tninK, on a superficial glaace, that the subject under discussion was of the gravest import, and that the fate of Federa tion hung in the balance. A careful examination of the facts will show that this is a vague and unreason able view. If the delegates did not . show a lamentable ignorance of the subject, they certainly indulged in an enormous outflow of claptrap -absurdities, more worthy of provin ? cial champions than of leading states men. The proposal of the Adelaide Convention was that the river Mur ray alone should be under the con trol of the Federal Parlia...
