Too Diffident. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
Too Diffident. : In a case before a Paris court, iu which a popular actress has had to appear as a witness, the Judge seems to have shown considerable diffidence about asking the lady, as he was in duty bound to do. what was her age. Evi dently he considered that such a ques tion, 'put to a witness, would be a direct incitement to perjury, so he asked her her age before she had been sworn. 'How old are you, madam?' 'he said. After a little hesitation, the lady owned to being 2!) years of age. ' And now that you have told the court your age,' con tinued the gallant Judge. ' you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and noth ing but the truth.'

The Home. The Hvtfppnp of the Rockinif Chair. Great interest has been excited In America by the news that Dr. Laine, a French West India physician, says the use of a roekiug-chair is good fur the health. Hi; has been talking of what li-- calls ' the good effects that the lul l'lby-chiiir exercises on subjects affected with atony of the stomach.' Atony is want of tone. Dr. Laine savs t.linl. a course of rocking-chair after every meal, the oscillations being quiet and regular, ' stimulates gastro-intestinal peristalt ism,' and that dyspeptics should take notice.

The Choice of Children's Books. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898
The Choice of Children's Book6. In the selection of reading for chil dren (says Sire. Ada S. Balliu, in the ' Paris Mode') we should avoid all tha± is of the morbid aud moralising tendency so frequently found. We want to keep our children young as long as we cau, aud to do this we should keep them, as far as possible, from the knowledge of sin and sorrow, which much of our modern literature is endeavouring to force upon them. What 'the youngsters want is to be interested aud amused, uot to have their feelings harrowed up and their imaginations painfully excited by tales of sorrow and injustice — of how Dolly passed a miserable aud friendless childhood, aud Billy was ill-used by the other boys at school. Of all literary characters, moreover, ' the good little boy that died' is. to my mind the most objectionable. . . . I would recommend to others the plan adopted by my kind mother aud eldest sister when my brother aud I were chil dren. Kvery day one or other of them would read aloud t...
