'lTo gItal of (&lt; Sanoeuds'it. The train had run into a snowdrift and the engine was butting its head in a rago against asix-foot bank.

STONE CROSSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 8 June 1894
STONE CROSSEI " . Stone orosses are first mentioned A.D. 852, and afterwards became conmmon. They owed their origin to marking the I)ruidical stones with crosses, in order, to change the woralship without breaking the prejudice. Many, presumtncd to be Runic, belonged to civilised Britons. Some were crected by Chrietian kings before a battle or a great enterpriso, with prayers and srupplications for tihe assistanceof the Almighlty. \Vhilanker thinks that crosses with scroll-works were antecedent to the Conquest. Preachring crosses-anclh as the Blackfiriars, in Here ford, were of hexagonal shape, open on each side, and raised on steps. In the centre was a.kindl of table of the came sshape, sn pportinr the shaft, whnich, branching out in ramnilifu tions, forms the roof ; and passing thrrough, it appearsabove in a mutilatel rstat.

A VICTIM OF ABSTRACTION. A mtooor man walked into a cheap, but I wellpatronised restauranbt the other day, endesat down at a table. He ordered two eggs, boiled medium, and thou sank into a reverie, from which he was aroused by a waiter who had not seen him at first, saying "Ordered, sir ?" "'Pickled lambs' tongues ana a cop of ten," was the reply of the forgetful customer, and the second waiter hurried away. lie had hardly gone when a third waiter, heedless of having been forestalled, repeated the question: "Ordered, irC?" "Beef and beans and a glass of milk," answered the thoughtful man. A fourth waiter respectfully inquired wlhat he wanted before the first order was filled, atnd he began with "A piece of mince pie and a-" when a waiter with two eggs and a cup of coffee pushed the other aside, saying : 011, shut up.

Tho railroad santndwich is still accasiunatly referred to in some of our more reckless and toolhardy humorous papers. It is now reported tlhant Mrs.Langtry hus :ccided not to marry right away. Great gea whir I Ilow long is this going to last any. how? "And now," saidl the enaot side belle, sweetly, turning to her ndinirer who wat paying her a visit, "if you will exeaue me for a time, I will go and undress for the party." A woman is not necessarily " the weaker vessel," because ailo cannot sharpen a lead pencil. Let her get her hand onl a rolling pin, and heaven help tihe man who is foolish enough to stand in her path. Miss Alice Shaw, the wlhiastler, is com itg from Eulrope.

SHORT STORY. The Lady's Maid's Story. "Yes, miss, certainly, I lived with Mrs. Birch-Miss Grigg that was before nos married Mr. Birch. I knew all about that affair. It was vecry singular indeed -very. I'n not sure that I ought to mention it, for if a lady's maid can't hold her tongue sho can't find good places. Dear me, I'm no talker. I'mI as muin as ait mouse. Bushels of pearl powder and quarts of rouge haveI applied with my own hands, and rover so much as hinted at. As fou .cotton, bless yourbeart, I've iverso miuch as breathed about it. "I lived with a tlady once that took rrenic regularly for her complexioln. That's no secret, for she took too much one dclay, by accidlent, and died. It all came out in the inquest. It's well it did, fpr suspicion pointed at the husband. Somehow it alwavys seems to strike a jury that a husband is the likeliest person to wishl a wife out of the way. " But this isn't anything about pastnt; Miss Origg being on the stage, made no secret of that. She p...

ELECTION APPETITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 8 June 1894
ELECTION APPETITES. Toe following may prove interesting to readers, being, as we are, on the verge of a cnoral election. It is an extract from " Hlarrington's IDiary " of these exciting times in 1661 and i1761. HIere is tihe bill for an election dinner in 1660: " For bread, ale, and tobacco, £1 17s. Od.; sturgeon and batter, £1 2a.: anchovies and oysters, 14s. Id.; eight dozen bottles of canary, £10 12s.; two dlozen of claret, £1 2s.; neats' tongues, Os. 2d. Total, £15 13s. 9d." There was not mucch to be grumbled at here; but what shall we say of the voters of a very small borough in 1761-exactly a hundred years later-who ate, on the day of election, independently of slighs refections of veal, mutton, poultry,- and pastry, a preparatory breakfast which cost tihe candi date £750 ! Afterivwards they dined, and tihe oor starved fellows demolished 780 stone of beef, I315 doozen of wine, 72 pipes of ale, and 365 eallons of spirits for ipunch.
ROTHSCHILD OUTWITTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 8 June 1894
ROTHSCHILD O!lTWITTrsa. AroNo the various admirable productions of tasto which the guests of Baron Roths i child never fail to admire is a magnificent service of porcelain, of singular beauty, I clegance of sihapeund finish, and remarkabl:o I for the artistic richcness of its paintings. 1 The way in which the Baron became pus- I sessed of it is worth relating. One day an old man, careworn, wrinkled, feeble, and apparently tottering on the verge of the grave, presented himself before M. de Rothschild soliciting the honour of anll interview. The old man was so naed, so poor, and had altogether so dejected an aspect that the Baron wans immediately impressed with a compassionate feeling towards himn, which feeling became one of lively interest on learning that he was a Jew. It is well known that the Israelites are very charitably disposecd towards all their brothren. The aged visitor took from hlis bag a rich and beautiful plate, so splendidly wrought that tihe Baron admired it exceed i...
Before Sailing. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 8 June 1894
Before Salling. Lean closer, darling, let thy tender heart Beat against mine that aches with heavy won; Drop thy quick woman' !tears tolsoothe thy smart, Ah, ma I that I could ease my sorrow so I But men must work, sweetheart, and women weep, So says the song, so;runs the world's be. best; Yet time will pass: and tender comfort creep, With hope in company, unto thy breast, Now, ere we part, while yet on lio and cheek Close kisses linger, clinging, passionate. There is a farewell word love fain would speak, A lender thought love labors to tran. slate In earnest words, whose memory through thy years Shall claim thy soul and dry thy dropping tears. If in thy garden where the roses blow, Or by the shelter of thy evening fire, In any Winter gloom or Summer glow. Thy soul float seaward with a fond desire (Fonder and stronger than thy tender use) Think thou: "One longs for me across the foam " And If, sweet falling like the evening dews. A special peace enfolds thy heart and home, Then say...

ELECTION JOKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 8 June 1894
ELECTION JOKES. MANY years ago, Captain White was a candidate for a seat in Parliament to represent a niortlhern county. During his canvass hle called at the hiouse of a worthy elector, where he observed a nice ham suspended from the ceiling, which roused his gastric ipropensities so much that hie forgot all about the main point (the vote), and asked, as a favour, if the good housewife would cool a slice for his dinner. She at once acquiesced, and, while still cooking, who lshould pop in before the captain had time to mnention the matter but his opponent. hBut White's readly wit, however, decided the all-important object of their visit by saying' "Come awa,' Mr. Leigh, come awa' in bye; ye're ower late for the vote noo, but ye're time enoughl for a bit o' the ham." It is said that Mr. Campbell, of Maonee, in pursuing his canvass,called on an elector to ask his vote. To the surprise of the candi date, thie elector said emphatically. "No, I would sooner give it to thl devil." Mr. Canm...

TIHE STOLEN SILKS. SOME time ago a rather extensive robbery, was committed at a wholesale store in this city. I was sent to examine the premises and He if I could rake anything out of it. I foundo the proprietors of the warehouses in great excitement. The robbery had been manageld so adroitly that no trace of it had been left. A large quantity of costly silks, worth 15,000dol. act the lowestfigure. had been taken from the premises; but no trace of the thieves had been left behind. The proprietors (four in number) were in close consultation in the private .office and were completely bewildered by the audacity as well as the neatness of the affair. I made the merchants furnish me with samplle pieces of the silks they Ihad lost, and told them to acnnounce in a few days that they had abandoned all Ihope of recovering the goods. These preliminaries being! arranged I took uy departure. I hlad not much hopeof recovering the goods, for the work bad been done so wisely that I had nothing to ...
