POPPIES. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
POPPIES. Not roses—the glow of their burning heart* Seems lit at my life's own fire; They mind me too much of my passionate past And the flame of its fierce desire. Not lilies—the cool of their stainless snow Would chill me, like saintly eyes Gazing passionless, pitiless, into my heart Prom the unforgetting skies. Not pansies—for down in their purple depths ' Dwell thoughts that I dare not see; The shrunken' face of a thwarted hope And a Joy that might not be. Not daisies—the sheen of their white and gold, Inwrought with my childhood's hours, Brings memories tender with noshed tears And fragrant with, fadeless flowers. Bring poppies — the scarlet poppies of sleep, That as long as my life shall last; For immortelles never may bud or bloom On the grave of my buried past Then weave me the crown of forgetfulness, Let me linger where Lethe flows, Till life's barrens are sown as thick with years i As the Northland is with snows. ;. __ .

TRUE DIGNITY. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
TRUE DIGNITY. I do not know how wealthy lie may be; He does not ride along In gorgeous style, Bnt, dressed with modest taste, he passes me, And always with a friendly bow and smile. I do not know how distant he may trace The line from which, be sprang, nor do J care; For self respect Is written on his face, And sodtten greed ijs merer mirrored there* His air is never coldly grave nor pronS. As one who moves along in constant dread Of being lost within the common crowd: The humble see him kindly nod Ills head. His hair is white, bnt still erect he stands; His high brow tells a tale of buried wee, And I can see upon his big, strong hands The record of hard work done long ago. I do not kno*w how wealthy be may be, Nor of the line from which God let him spring; I know btit this, that In his face I see Such dignity as woul&amp; exalt a |j°^
THE WAITING. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
THE WAITING. « &quot;BY JOHN Q. WHITTIEB. I wait and watch; before my eyes ! Methlnks the night grows thin, and grey; I wait and watch the eastern skies To see the golden spears uprise Beneath the oriflamme of day. i Like one whose limbs are bound in trance I hear the day sounds swell and grow, And Bee across the twilight glance, Troop after troop, in swift advance, The shining ones with plumes of snow. I know the errand of their feet, I know what mighty work is theirs; I can but lilt np hands unmeet The thrashing floors of God to beat, And speed them with unworthy prayers. I will not dream in vain despair, The steps of progress wait for me; The puny leverage of a hair ■ The planet's Impulse well may spare, A drop of dew the tided sea. The loss, if loss there be, Is mine, i And yet noc mine if nßdexst&lt;K~i,_ | For one shall grasp and one ««£?;
A TRIO OF DEATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
A TRIO OF DEATHS. Of the three men of mark who have just died, Philip James Bailey, the author of &quot;Festus,&quot; Sir Frederick Abel, the authority on explosives, and PROFESSOR RUDOLF VIRCHQW, the last, was, of course, far the most eminent. It is given to few to be both a master of science and a great social and political reformer, but Virchow was a man of such a vigour and versatility that of him it might well be said that he touched nothing that ha did not adorn. Beginning life as a young- Pomeranian doctor, he became at 26 a lecturer in pathology at the University of Berlin, founded that storehouse of original research and observation, the Archives for Pathological Anatomy and Physiology, and a year later was appointed to investigate and take measures for stamping out the outbreak of typhus ia Silesia. His report brought him into public notice &amp;3 a great doctor, a gTeat sanitary reiormer, and a courageous speaker of the truth. He denounced in stron...
LONDON, September 5. A SULTAN'S CORONATION IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
LONDON, September 5. A SULTAN'S CORONATION IMPRESSIONS. An interesting book could be compiled of the impressions of the rulers and soldiers of the native races congregated in London for the Coronation, To them the personal element of sovereignty appeals with far greater force than to white colonials. What the Sultan of Perak and his companions thought of England is vividly recorded in an article called &quot;Piloting- Princes,&quot; by Mr Hugh Clifford, C.M.G., in the September number of &quot;Blackwood.&quot; None of the Sultan's companions had been in England before, and when, they first arrived the weather was cold. &quot;On the night of their arrival,&quot; says Mr Clifford, &quot;I found two of the chiefs sleeping- on the outside of their beds, with only a silk coverlet, such as is used in their own country, pulled up about their necks,. They were shivering miserably, and I roused them and inquired what they were doing1. T...
THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CHARACTER. MS PEJBCY P. ROWLAND'S ESTI-j MATE. , i|: &quot;Among the Australians you&quot; find determination, pluck, sportsmanship), gOod humour, religion without theology, civility without servility, and an uncommon power of common, sense.&quot; This is how Mr Percy F. Eowland sums up Australian characteristics in an article on the beginnings of an Australian National Character in the September number of the &quot;Nineteenth Century.&quot; In Australia, he says, English* Scotch and Irish provincialisms get rubbed away, and pride of Australian; nationality takes their place. The Australian is very sensitive to criti* cism of his country and vain of its physical charm and of the mental and moral excellence of its inhabitants, and until recently he showed a determination not to appreciate, or at any rate not to express appreciation for, the achievements of greater peoples, or the monuments of older civilisations. But wit...
RELIGIOUS WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
RELIGIOUS WORLD. IMMORTALITY OF INFLUENCE. A SERMON BY THE KEY. W. L. WATKINSON, M.A. &quot;Surely hs shall not be moved for ever; the righteous shall be In everlasting remembrance.&quot;— Psalm 112, 6. We think that when a man dies he ihas done wth the world, and that the has done with the world, and that the however, needs revision. There is inueh about a man that cannot be put into a coffin. Keats left for Ms epitaph: &quot;Here lies one whose name was writ 5n water.&quot; The names of men are generally so wrii; but the life and character are impressed on society deeply, indelibly. We need only glance around to understand to what a large extent the generations of the past are living to-day. We owe much to them of all that by which we are either blessed or cursed. They built our cities, enacted our laws, determined our Government, wrote our great books, consecrated our churches. If tie dead could return, and each take away what belongs to him, very ...
CHURCH NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
CHURCH NEWS AND NOTES. The Rev. Hugh Price Hughes, M.A., the celebrated Wesleyan-Methodist minister of England, has recently expressed the hope that he will still be able to visit Australia, presumably ■within the comparatively near future. By resolutions of the last Methodist Confei-ence of New South Wales, held in Sydney in March, Sunday, October 5, was observed through out the State as ''Intercession Day&quot; &lt;Gn hehaH of foreign missions. ■ The income of the Wesleyan Foreign Missionary Society of Eno-land, says the report, remained practically stationary, the amount contributed renaming what it WO s a quarter of a ;*«tjn* ago. Such a stationary in* oL sue fneoaie, means a stationary poUej, which is contrary to the past, history ali d traditions of the Methodirt CLurch. The Key. N. M.

THE CHURCH FARTHEST NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
THE CHURCH FARTHEST NORTH. Russian control has pushed its way to the extreme North-Western tip of Siberia, 1500 miles north of Yladivostock and the Siberian Railway. At the van of the Russian possession is the official Greek priest of the Established Church. All Russian resources are at his command, and all Russian officials and soldiery hasten to his bidding. Naturally in building the city of Markova, the northernmost town of the world and Russian outpost, an imposing Greek church Eeceived first consideration, with all its details of dome and minaret, although lumber and timber must come from long distances. In size it is larger and more pretentious than all the -Government buildings combined. The Greek priest at once on arrival assumed control over the ■ souls of all the • koryaks, other natives, Russian soldiers, officials and labourers of the province of Amadyr. He is personally acquainted with the physical conditions of all under his jurisdiction. On arrival of strangers he war...
LITERARY. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
LITERARY. &quot;Page's Magazine,&quot; widen is devoted to all branches of engineering, promises to be a valuable addition to the ranks of the monthlies. While the technical articles bear the stamp of expert knowledge, numbers of the contributions are in popular vein. In the September number, for instance (the third), there are instructive and comprehensive contributions on naval constructive progress and wireless telegraphy, which should appeal to &amp; very large section of the general reading public. There is also a good article on Sir Andrew Noble and the growth of the great Elswick shipping yards. The general get-up of the magazine is really of exceptional merit. Perhaps the most interesting portions of the September number are those dealing with mining machinery. The Coronation Ode competition started by &quot;Good Words&quot; has resulted in the infliction on the public of a volume of the lucubrations which the Empire's poets roused the...
STAGE JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
STAGE JOTTINGS. Though, the recent season of the Musgrove ' (so-called) comic opera company was a notable financial success, it must have seriously damaged the hitherto splendid reputation of Mr Musgrove for sending across from Australia nothing but the best. How on earth so very moderate a combination has been able to attract business in Sydney and Melbourne n gainst such. powerful opposition as that offered by the Royal Comic Opera Company and Williamson's Musical Comedy Company is as impossible to understand as how, in the name of all that is stupid, &quot;A Chinese Honeymoon&quot; should have been a notable success in London. Yet it unquestionably was. Melbourne again praised it, but in Sydney it was a frost. On the other hand, &quot;The Thinty Thieves&quot; was ay comparative ia'lure in London and Melbourne and a brilliant success in Sydney, while over here the general opinion seemed to be that it was &quot;not too bad,&quot; aud ...
HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
HEALTH HINTS. HEART AFFECTIONS. Dr. Andrew vilson' continues in &quot;Lloyds&quot; the interesting article on diseases of the heart, from which Borne extracts were made last week. There is yetjanother caution besides abstaining- from overtaxing: the stomach, especially just before retiring at night, to be observed in the case of those who suffer from palpitation, says the writer. If they will persist—as so many do —in rushing off to work just after eating a full meal, they will very likely suffer from disturbance both of digestion and of the heart's work. Rest after meals should be rigidly observed by everybody who is troubled with flushing after meals, and with heart irritation. This advice is founded upon sound physiological principles. Digestion involves a considerable expenditure of nervous energy, and many of us are not equal to the demand which exercise after a meal entails upon both stomach and heart. Pain over the region of the heart is a symptom which should...
DREW THE LINE AT RUINS [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 18 October 1902
DREW THE LINE AT RUINS American tourists are notoriously irreverent. One of those inevitables paid a visit to Chatsworth the other day, and after exploring the marvels of the Palace of the Peak, he said to a Sheffielder wh« had been also inside. &quot;This is a nice place, who belongs to it?&quot; &quot;The DulW of Devonshire.&quot; &quot;How did he get it?&quot; &quot;It was left to him.&quot; &quot;What does he do? Did he ever earn ten cents, in his life?&quot; &quot;Oh, yes; he's very clever.&quot; &quot;But did he ever do a day's work, like you or me?&quot; The SheS'ieWer was soon at his wits' end for replies, and by way of changing the subject suggested that the American should visit Fountains Abbey. &quot;Fountains Abbey,&quot;' replied Old Yank, '■what's that?&quot; &quot;It's a very fine ruin,&quot; was the answer. &q...
