Some Facts about Dates. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

MnaiwMiiTt»*Liiu.i.ii '''' '??'? ????'mmi 1 mi ? — ^— 1 Some Facts about Dates. The year 1900 will not be a leap year simply because, being a hundredth year, although it is divisible by four, it is not divisible by 400 without a remainder. This is not the real reason, but- a result of it ; the real reason being the establish ment of the Gregorian rule made in 1582. The nineteenth century will not end till midnight Monday, December 31, 1900, although the old quarrel will probably again be renewed as to what constitutes a century when it winds up, and thousands will insist on a premature burial of the old century at midnight of December 31, 1899. But, as a century means 100 years, and as the first century could not end till a full 100 years had passed, nor the second till 2C0 years had passed, etc., it is not logically clear why the nineteenth century should be curtailed and broken off before we have had the full l'JOO years. The 1st of April and the 1st of July in any year, and in le...

Humorous Cobblers. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

Humorous Cobblers. The author of a history of cobblers and shoemakers in France tells some curious and amuBing stories that were popular with them in the Middle ages. One sets forth how the notes of the musical scale were invented by an Italian cobbler. A young lady took a shoe which needed mending to a cobbler, and said, ' Fa mi la re sol la, in Italian, — ' Mend my shoes.' The cobbler replied, ' Vo la re sol la re,' — ' I will mend them,' — and a few more ingeniously composed sentences complete the scale and the conversation. Another story tells of a long discussion as to what is the essence, the nature, the principle, and the essential ingredient of a shoe. Finally a philosopher solves the problem by saying that the true nature and essence of the shoe is the heel, for without a heel a shoe would be a slipper, and no one can contradict this luminous statement. Some one asserts that he can make fifty pairs of shoes in half an hour. None of his brother shoe makers can guess how this...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

NEWCASTLE. At_ last the new waiting shed at the tramway terminus near the beach is to be constructed, and preparations are well in hand. A passage to the beach is aho to be constructed, and the Municipal Council have taken steps to carry this out. It is reported that the tramway to Tighe's Hill will be opened on Thursday preparatory to the public holiday. A motor and car has already run the length of the distance, and everything was re ported satisfactory. A daring robbery is supposed to have taken place yesterday, though very little information is to ho obtained at present. The music warehouse of Messrs. Paling and Co. was entered, and a cash box removed containing a quantity of notes and gold. Everybody seems to be very quiet about the affair and particulars will be difficult to get at present in the hopes of securing the delinquent. The young men who were arrested were brought before the Bench and charged with uttering forged cheques upon several business firms in town. Th=-y wer...

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

LATE GKEHERAL NEWS. A Cabinet meeting was held yesterday to arrange the business of the session. The Government will first deal with financial matters, and it is expected that in about a week's time Mr. See will make a statement explaining the accounts of the colony. It is understood that no decision was arrived at m regard to the resignation of Mr. Copeland as Minister for Lands. For the past half-year the net profit of the Aus tralian Joint Stock Bank amounted^ to £51,039. The directors propose to declare a aiviaena n\i me rate of 5 per cent, per annum, to place £22,779 to reserve, and to carry forward £5308. As the outcome of his visit to Bingera aud Inverell, Mr. G. S. Streeter considers that the dis trict is rich in gems, unfortunately of small com mercial value, and that it presents a problem to be solved which leans rather to the side of science than of commerce; but that if the problem be solved satisfactorily, a bright opening may be anti cipated for the diamond-fields of N...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

ITEM OF INTEREST. [Original and Selected.! The Eoyal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has undoubtedly done good work in the past and, ib is hoped, will continue to do so in the future in protecting our dumb friends, but at times - such institutions are liable to overstep the bounds of common sense, and tumble into a state of wild- ? eyed fanaticism, This one did so yesterday. John M'Lean, a butcher, was observed to brand a pig by piercing its ear wicn a pair ot plsars or pincers, and thereupon the inspector of the society summoned the man for cruelty to the grunter. For the de- ? fence Messrs. Stanley, Government Veterinarian, and Scott, veterinary to the permanent forces, were - called. Both gentlemen stated that this system of branding pigs was an old custom, and was not nearly so painful as branding with heated irons. Butchers were compalled to adopt it in order to reccgnise their pigs on being returned from the abattoirs. Ib was further stated that the instru men...

A Clever Ruse. 'Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to driak.' Few peop'e be ide sailori can apprec:a*;e the terrible impoit o- vhese simple words. On a short whaling, or, as Bti'ors sjy ' plum pudding voyage ' of the bri^ Arno'da, Shubael Higg'ns, master, they ran short of water, and at Hy'c the captain decided to put ialo Goree, on the west coast of Africa. As they neared the Cape de Verde Islands, however, and got into what are known to sailors as the horse latitndes, the wind fell calm, and the vessel drifted idly on the water. As day after day pessed with no sign of wind, Captain Higgins became impatient. The surface of the ocean was as smooth as a mirror and as the long heavy swells came from the regions of the trade winds the vessel rolled and tossed about like a cork upon the water. The square sails were furled to prevent their being worn out in slapping against the masts. The stay sails were all set and the sheets hauled tanf, which eased, her somewhat in her rolling. By ...

THE IMPENDING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

THE IMPENDING ELECTION. Sir.,— I take the liberty to further crave space in your columns with a view to discuss the above sub ject yvhich because of its importance I feel sure that you in your courtesy will accord me. I take it that it depends upon the composition of the next Assembly whether we shall have a return of solid prosperity or whether the present stagna tion shall continue. Prosperity can only return to the Colony if capital is invested in our producing industries, and we may be well assured that capita! will not bo forthcoming for such purposes if any considerable number of members are returned who preach Socialism, Single tax. or fads of like nature, and it must not be lost Bight of that a very large proportion who are candidates in what is called ' the labour interest' are people of this claBS.

ADRIAN'S RELEASE. CHAPTER IX. A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894

..'ADRIAN'S- flELE^SE CHAPTER IX. A NARROW ESCAl'E. A fortnight had passed away. The Indus had sailed for Bombay with Adrian's wife oa board, known only as Sybil Clare, the famous actress, going round the world on a theatrical tour in her great drama, ' Temptation and Triumph.' Bella looked with much curiosity and interest for her husband's letter giving his final answer to her insidious proposal. But it did tot reach her before she left Southampton, and she rightly guessed that he was unable to come to a decision on the momen tous question. Yes, Adrian was in a state of the most pitiable vacillation ; torn with coiiflictuig motives ; a prey to fiercely contending impulses. At one moment, as he looked into the pure, trusting eye3 of Vida BlacKeith, he swore that he would never do her such a cruel wrong as to deceive her still more basely than he had yet done. ' You cannot do it,' said conscience. ' It would be a dastardly act to let her believe that she was a true wife, perhaps a ch...
