MARIE'S LOVE. THE STORY OF A DISENCHANTMENT. Leaving her triend, Ethel Le Mar, with her mother, Mario started towards the cliff. As sho ncared it she heard from the other side a clear, sweet voico and stopped as if turned to stone. Ah, surely she knew that voice I ' Martie, it was saying, 'we have been here five days, and you have proposed to me exactly five times ; now if — ' But Marie waited to hear no more. ' Goldiu Fitzgerald !' she breathed. ' Oh, why did I come hero ? What if Gerald should bo with her ? I cannot— I will not meet him !' ' Plcatbe, mith, lemme have that flower you'th spoiling.' The lad held out a grimy hand, and Marie laid her rose in it. ' Thanky, mith. I want it for Beth Wil liamth. She'th blind.' Marie watched his crooked form as be ambled away, and then smjled. It takes so little to change a woman's mood. ' Such 'a rude casket for so kind a heart I' she mused. 'He bos nothing, I so much ; and yet I am rebelling at fate. Truly I am ashamed of myself.

Recipe for Seasickness. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

Itccipo for Seasickness. Those who go down to the sea in ships should be in possession of a recipe for seasickness. Professor Charters, of the University of Glasgow, says that If people will only be careful regarding their irastronomic eccentricities before they start, it thoy will take a lilue pill on the night preceding their voynge, fol lowing It with the. old-fashioned doso.;of citrate of magnesia In the morning ; and If, lastly, they will, when on board the ship, take » dose of chlorobron? and sim ply rest in the cabin, their former troub- '-. les will most llk.ely be unknown. A full , dose may be' taken on retiring to r^s.t ?'' if the voyage Is made by^jilght ; if ..»$?.' day, a moderate dose win. suffice. ' A second dose is rarely found to be neces- , sary.

British Cavalry. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

British Cavalry. Cavalry in the last century was not the dashing force wo know now : it trotted calmly up to the enemy, and flred a volley, when, if tho foe showed - signs of confusion, the troopers drew their long swords and went at them ; but If they stood firm, the squadrons wheeled and tried for bettor luck in an other quarter ! At one period tho horses had their ears cropped innd their tails docked and cut into a species of knob, and It is said that in Germany they were so maddeno.d 'by tlie flies, which thoy were unable to whisk off owing to that barbarous regulation, that thoy wore sometimes rendered un manageable, and consequently useless fls a force. An Insight into the cavalry of that period may bo obtained by a few curious anecdotes of Ligonier's Re giment, then called ' The Blacks,' and now the 7th Dragoon Guards. It was on the Irish establishment for thirty years, and was so popular with the younger sons of good families that they often paid from twenty to tliirty guine...

Compulsory Education in Switzerland. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

Compulsory Education. in Switzerland, Primary education is compulsory throughout Switzerland, and no mercy Is shown to people who attempt to keep their .children away from school. In Solothurn parents aro not even allowed the option or having tnolr offspring educated at home or In private institu tions. Considerable trouble is taken, however, to arrange the school hours with due regard to general convenience. In summer the classes begin at 7 o'clock in the morning; thus, when the children have done working with tholr heads, thoy still have time enough to work with their hands. Thoy have their holidays, too, in the autumn, so that thoy may be able during the harvest to help in the fields. Not only is primary educa tion fret, but in poor districts food and elothlpg are distributed at public ex pense nmong such of the children as need them.

TOMMY ATKINS'S GHOST. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

TOMMY ATKINS'S GHOST. Tbe passage leading to the mortuary attached to a military hospital in India was formed of timbers similar to railway sleepers placed end up, and securely fastened to cross rails. A defunct warrior occupying; tbe duadhouse, a sentry, in accordance with regulations, was posted at tbo end of the passage. After about a quarter of an hour's ' sentry go '' this man appeared at the guard-room door, and, pitch ing his riflu into the arm-rBck, said : ' Make a prisoner of me. I'll do no moro guard there. Why, Bill has got up from hiB coffin and gone down to the nativo bazaar.' He was promptly placed under arrest, and sergeant proceeded to put another man on the guard. At the same time he made an inspec tion of the mortuary, where he found the dead soldier just as he had been placed there. The ' non-com.' returned to the guard room, and was soon startled by tbe appearance of sentry number two, who, pale and agitated, said in effect the same thing as the first man. Having...

ABSENCE OF MIND. THE ODD THINGS SOME PEOPLE DO. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

ABSENCE OF MIND. THE ODD THINGS SOME PEOPLE DO. Almost every one has Buffered from absence of mind, if we include in that term moments of extreme absorption in thought during which we continue to act mechanically or fail to be aware of sights and sounds which at ordinary times would call out all our attention. If we take any of the well-known stories of absent-minded men wo find that they only record extreme cases of tbe abstraction which is common to all of us. For example, the poet Dante entered a bookseller's shop in Rome with the intention of watching a great procession. He took up a book to while away the time until the pageant arrived, became deeply interested in it, and went on reading through the noise and music without noticing that the proces sion he had come out to see had passed by. That is only an exaggeration of the experience, of any traveller who has become so absorbed iu his book or newspaper or in au- argument with a fallow-passenger that ho has failed to notice th...

THE IRONY OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

THE IRONY OF FATE. They were casting lots. For days they had drifted about on the raft at the mercy of tho waves. It seemed an age since the ship had sprung a leak and been nhaiidnucd. The last scran of biscuit had been saVagoly devoured a week bofore, and the few drops of water remaining in tbe barrel had become too bad far even a starving man to swallow. One by oue the few survivors had seeu their companions drop dead of privation or go crazy and jump overboard. To relievo their suffer ings they had done everything that shipwrecked men ever do, as well as a few of the things that writers of s«a stories say thoydo Then came the last resort. After casting hungry eyes upon each other for hours, they decided to draw lots to fee which one was to dio that tho others might live. Silently the six whito and one black button were put into the hat, and the seven miserable wretches huddled around to gamble with death. At longth each clutched_.hand held one of the buttons, and then one after a...

READING BY LIGHTNING FLASHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

READING BY LIGHTNING FLASHES. What is the secret of boing able to read by lightning flashes ? In tho hurry and bustle of the present day, it is scarcely possible to keep pace with the newspapt is, and snatch an occa sional hour for the magazines, far less to keep pace with tbo production of books, to say nothing of turning backwards to the we»lth of tbo past. What an inestimable boon, therefore, it would be if wo had the faculty of grasping cuntences, paragraphs, and, perhaps, pages at n little more than a glance. That there have been mi n gifted iu that way is an undoubted fact. Macaulay possessed that faculty in a remarkable degree, and most edi tors have it to a lesser cxti nt. He would take up a volume for an eveniug'a intellectual enjoyment, and before he retired he had tho contents fully impressed upon bis marvellous mind. Dickens was auother of tho remarkably rapid leaders. George Eliot's ' Adam Bede ' camo to him one day. Before his ordinary bedtimo he bad rend it and pronou...

A MUSICAL PERFORMANCE THAT FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

A MUSICAL PERFORMANCE THAT FAILED. When the celebrated violinist, Wieniawski, was in Paris —some twenty years ago— he was continually solicited to play at nuirecs. One baroness in particular was especially pressing. and at last, much against bis will, the musician yielded to her entreaties, and came one even ing with his accompanist.' Tbe bironess, who was receiving her visitors atthe head of thegrand staircase, welcomed him with effusion, and begged him to be seated in tbe salon till the other visitors had arrived. Teu minutes later, when a fe.w people were present, the baroness, snatching au instant from lit r duties of receiving, asked Wieuiawski to favour them by playing something, after saving which she rushed back again to tho staircase Tbe violiniBt glanced around ; tbe audience was scanty, aud looked anything but promising. ' Bah 1 ' said he to his accompanist at the piano, shrugging his shoulders, ' let ub play Ernst's ' Elegie.' Now, it should bo mentioned that tbo piece i...

THE BAGNO. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

THE BAGNO. In former times tbe punishment of the Baguo (batb), one of tbe most cleverly cruol infiic tious ever devised by an official of tho to.rture chamber, was administered in Italy, probably in Venice, where the water of the Lagoons played so prominent a part iu its penal systein The punishment was as followB :— ? — — * The prisoner was placed in a. rut, the sides of which' were slightly in excess of tbe average height of a man. In order to hold in check the rising tide of a supply of wiiter which ran into the vat in a constant stream, tbe criminal was furnished with a sco8jj-~jvithwhich to bale out the water as fast as it came*^ . . The respite from death 'by imm'.fsion thus obtuiued was more or less prolonged, accoidin' to the powers of endurance possessed by ft, victim. But imagine the moral torture, tile exhausting aud even hideously grotesque efforts, the incessant and pitiless toil by night and day to stave off the dread moment fast approaching, when, overcome by sleep an...

QUICKNESS OF SMELL IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

QUICKNESS OF SMELL IN HORSES. Most animals have at least one sharp sense. A dog and a cat, according to tho fable, lay in a dark room, ' Hark i 1 beard a feather drop,' said the dog. ' Ob, no,' said the oat, ' it was a needle, I saw it.' Whatever may be true of domesticated horses, the wild horse of the South American pampas possesses a most acute, and far-reaching sense of smell. Mr. Hudson speaks of it as a common ocour rence for the horses of a district, in seasons of draught, to migrate suddenly to Bomo distant place — SO miles away, perhaps — where rain has fallen A slight breeze from that quarter is enough to set them off. A still more striking phenomenon in, he says, familiar to every frontiersman. The gaucho horse has tho greatest terror of an Indian invasion, and long before the marauders reach tho settlement — often when they are still a full day's journey from it — all tbe horses take the alarm, and come flying wildly in. Thn horned cattln quickly feel the contagion , and...

DISCOVERED THROUGH A DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

DISCOVERED THROUGH A DREAM. Maria Martin was the daughter of a Suffolk mole-catcher, who resided at Polstead. She had a very pretty face and a beautiful figure, was aimple and artless, and readily fell a prey to the insidious advances of William Corder, a wealthy farmer's son. On the 18th of May, 1827, he promised the father of Maria that he would marry hia daughter privately by license, ami for this purpose she was to be in readinp.su lo go with him to Ipswich, dressed in male attire, which she could exchange on tho way for her own clothes in one of bis barns, known as the Red Barn. They met secretly at some distance from her father's house, and walked on together. From that time forth she was never seen again alive. Her mother questioned Corder, who said she was alive and well, in hid ing to prevent his friends discovering tho mar riage, which th«y had strongly opposed. Soon after, be left England for tbe Conti nent, to benefit bis health, as he said, expres sing curious anxiety b...

A JOKE ON THE DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 7 September 1898

A JOKE ON THE DOCTOR. The other morning, as a belated member of tbe Owl Club was steering home through a dense fog, he passed the housu of a well-known physician. The vestibule of this residence was onen, aud on its side the dim rays of tbo inonii, struggling through the gloom produced by the effects of the gas company, disclosed tho mouth of an acoustic tube, underneath which was tho inscription, ' Whistle for Dr. Potts.' Not wishing to be disobliging about so small a matter, the Owl stumbled up the steps, and Bteadying himsslf against tbe wall, blew into the pipe with all the strength of his lungs. The physician, who was awakened by the resultant shrill whistle near his head, arose, aud after wouderiug at the singular odour of whisky in the room, groped his way to the tube and shouted ?' Well ? ' ' Glad to know you're, well,' was tho reply ; ' but being a doctor I s'posu you can keep well at cost price, cau't you ? ' ' What do you want?' said the man'of pills, not caring to joke i...
