"CHEER UP," DO ! [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 20 July 1899
'CHEER UP,' DO! By H. E. S. - j ' Gloomy shadows oft' will flit If you've got tho grit and wit Just to laugh a little bit.' * # * # # ' The rainy weather has helped me to Bolve a conundrum. How is it that the ladies wear pretty petticoats underneath their dresses r I was walking along Goorge-street, Sydney, the other day and the inspired answer came when I saw how nicely the colored and embroidered under-Bkirts were revealed whilst attempts were being made to prevent the dresses from becoming be spattered with water and mud. j # # # # # I do not think it is at all fair that all the pretty colors should be worn by the ladieB.

Facts That Are Stubborn. If Wellington people are not convinced by local testimony, they differ from other ; people. v : Oar readers will have noticed how in the past two years ' CureB ' ? multiplied in the newspapers very fast, and the public are be coming sceptical. Pacts are demanded, but it as also become esBeritial to know who - supplied these facts and where they are from. People will not now accept incredible cures from the other side of the continent.

The Accident of Birth. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 20 July 1899
The Accident ot Birth. Speaking on Monday night at the Salya- 1 tion Army, meeting, Mr. Wise said he often ' thought in court.it was only by an accident that he was not behind the ' spikes' instead of. standing at the barrister's table. He. had not been placed in the position of I ever having to withstand the temptation of I poverty, to witness the. horrible scenes of the slums, or to share in the squalid lives ' led by the outcast*. , Those people they had heard about that night' lived in thiB immor al atmosphere, and it was not surprising that so many of. them fell. It is not difficultto imagine Mr. Wise as the head of the 'Sock's Push,' or of a band of burglars. But we should be thankful that an accident threw him into another sphere of usefulness, tor Mr. Wise as a ' Eocks' captain would not be satisfied, until he had pulled down the police barracks and taken possession of the whole city. As a burglar he would be the moBt ingenious and daring on record. As a politician he is alw...

Norah at once, and raised his hat; but e?en in the dusk she could see how embar rassed and shy he looked. Timidity and nervousness were things of which Miss CaBhel knew little or nothing. She spoke nonchalantly and easily, although her laugh was slightly deceptive and tremulous. ? Mr. Ardmore, you appear just in time to. rescue. two forlorn damBols !

DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New South Wales Stock. .From the Agricultural Guzelte. of N.8.W. -r'' — 0 ? — : ' By M.' A:.. O'CjLllaohah. PART III. ... l am frequently asked the question : What, is the, best breed of cattle for dairy .purposes ? ,Now, ho more in definite query could be put, because the breed of cattle which will suit any dairy farmer will depend upon the land and olimatic conditions, the size or area of tho holding, the treatment which the farmer interids to give his cattle, as well as the purpose lot which the milk is intended. NeedleBB to say, the breed 'of cattle that suits any farmer best is, that 'whioh leaves!him the greatest net profit at the end of ' the year ; and as thiB £ a. d. amount. is not directly pro portional to the amount of milk yielded, many things have to be considered before a. satisfactory decision can be arrived at. The same breed of. cattle will rarely suit two dairy farmersr-one of 60 and the other of (say) 3,000 aores. The latter will pr...

' You needn't sit any longer,' said the frightened artist. 'What's that?' she hoarsely whis pered,. without changing a muscle. ~ 'I say you needn't sit there now — I have finished,' he exclaimed. ' Ain't I to pay ye three and sixpence?-' she interrogated, in the same guggling tone, With her eyes strained on the qtark. 'Yes.' ? ' Well, then, do ye mane to say I'm to give ye three an' sixpence for only five minits in the ohair ? .. Begorra, I'll have a full tin minits fur the money, an' that't little enough in all conscience !' Arid she had it.
