A Polite Car Conducter. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

A Polite Car Conducter. There was a decidedly novel specimen of a car conductor observed on a car of the Sacramento street line. He was learning the business, and the way in which he departed from the manners and customs and business-liko discourtesy affected by members of the professions stamped him on the surface as a raw hand. ' Transfers, ladies and gentlemen,' he called in a subdued and eentlemanlv voino. ' Da ™;„i. [ a transfer, sic F Excuse me, I did not see you Yes, this will carry you to Bay-street,' and he looked benignantly down on the line of amused faces. ' Excuse me, ma-lam, but would you be so k nd as to move a little so that I may handle this brat ?' Thanks.' Then he bowed low and drew aside to let a China man with a basket of clothes pass out. 'Tickets, please. Thank you, madam,' and he received the yellow pasteboards and thanked each passenger individually as they handed him their transfers. The gripman smiled blandly. ' That cuss makes me tired,' said the veteran ...

Pacts about Circus Artists. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 6 January 1894

Facts about Circus Artists. Writing to Cassell's Saturday Journal, a show man has undertaken to reveal some of the secrets of his business. He says : — Gymnasts and riders seen in the circus arena are made, not born, and fractured limbs and dislocated joints are frequent during the period of training. Of course every precaution is taken by some trainers to ensure the safety of novices, but accidents will happen in the best regulated families. In my young days a man who was a 'star' in a circus company would bring up all his family in the line, so that when he had to give up riding and take clown's place or act as ring-master, his son would jump into his shoes. Now, however, the line is so badly paid that artists as a general rule look for some other opening for their children. It is none so easy a business to learn to become a dashing bare-back rider, and although possessing nerve and daring, hours of practice must be gone through before the aspirant becomes proficient. The novice i...

M. Ollivier, the French statesman, who has recently been in Rome, has just answered thus the question, 'What do you think will be the results of the French policy of Leo XIII. ?' ' Tho result must be the moral annihilation of the Roman Catholic Church in France. Never at any time has the Church in France been in a more wretched condition. Bishops are appointed by the delegates of the Freemasons ; village cures are only accepted if the local Radical politician does not object to them. The churches aro bein«' laicised, just as the schools were by the Decree on vestries. At no distant date the tax-collector will regulate what is to take place in the sanctuary. Moreover the administrative authorities hold as a rod over all ecclesiastics tho threat of suspending their salaries. No church can stand these in iquitous proceedings ; but I conceive that the Pope must have some vast scheme connected with European politics, of which the sacrifice of the French clergy forms a necessary part.'

MERRIWA. We have experienced intense heat for the past few weeks whicti was showing its influence upon the country around, grass and herbage becoming parched up. On Friday we were favoured by a thunderstorm which was accompanied by some welcome rain, one inch being registered. The weather since that time being very changeable, with much promise of a further downpour which will be very acceptable as a refresher to the grass and herbage, which would grow vigorously with ?necessary moisture at this time of year. The live stock continues in good condition, although feed Lad become very dry. The maize crop requires showers occasionally and wfll be benefited by tho passing showers. The wheat crop has given a good return, the quality of the grain being much better than the previous crop and all harvested without loss or damnge.
