FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898

FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT As we do not often see Timor news in your paper, I send you an item or two. The monotony of the place was broken on Thursday evening, 20th January, when the young people of the district, to the number of about 24, assembled at the residence Mr. J.   Edmonds, and proceeded thence to Mr, H. Batterham's home, where they were wholly unexpected, but none the less welcomed. The large dining room was soon cleared of furniture, and the floor taken possession of by groups of merry men and maidens, bent on dancing and otherwise enjoying them selves. Mr. J . Batterham made an efficient   M. C, and the music was supplied by Messrs. A. Caban and W. Batterham. Dancing was kept up with great spirit until midnight, when the company adjourned to the supper room to partake of refreshments, with which (in the orthodox surprise party fashion) they had come provided. After supper dancing   was resumed, and was kept up with very few interm...

Timor. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 5 February 1898

Timor. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) The weather during the past few days has been exceedingly changeable ; in fact we have experienced weather suited to all the four seasons of the year during the Iast week or two. Taking the Timor district as a whole, it is looking better now than it has done for many years past ; the hills look almost like a wheat field. Although the late floood did a consid   erable amount of damage to the fences about the district, it did an immense amount of good in the way of providing a water supply, and in setting the creeks and rivers running again. Threshing is now in full swing in the dis trict. I hear that Mr. E. Watson is going to thresh most of the Box Tree wheat, as a number of the farmers out that way who reaped their wheat are waiting to get it threshed. A race meeting was held at the foot of Cran-ney on Saturday last, but as I was not present I am unable to give you a report, but I am informe,! tbat it was a great success. A ball, promoted...

Remarkable Works of Human Labour. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 February 1898

Remarkable Works or Human Labour. - The following are considered to have been the ten most remarkable works of human labour : — 1. The Pyramids of Egypt and -Mexico, the largest of which, near Cairo, known as tlie Great Pjran'id. built by Cheops. King of Egypt, took 3fiO,000 men twenty years to build. 2. The artificial reservoir — Lake Moerls —built by Amencinha, of. tho twelfth dynasty, which served to store up the waters of the Nile during the season of floods, and distribute them by canals over the land during the dry season. Its circumference was' 3600 furlongs, and on its being allowed to fall Into ruin, the fertility of the region became, to a serious extent, a thing- of the past. 3. The Ta] Mahal, a tomb erected at Agra, in Hindostan, by Shah Jehan, over his Queen, Noor Jehnn. It is built of tlie purest whjte jjiarble. an^ 5*e* seems? so airy that, when seen 'from a distance, it is so like a, fabric of mist and sunbeams, with its great dome soaring' up, a silvery bubble abbut...

Law Court Stories. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 February 1898

Law Court Stories. Here are a few stories from the Law Ccurts :— ' That is so, my Lord,' said a bar rister to whom an irate Judge had Just observed, 'I can't give you brains. Mr. So-and-Sp.' ' I myself have two small manors, my Lord,' said a very ill-bred, pompous counsel, to illustrate a ques tion of property la.w. . ' We all know that, Mr. ICewsey,' observed the Judge, with suave courtesy ' Look at me, sir, and attend to what 1 shall ask you,' thundered a. learned counsel, whose un fortunate ' homeliness' of feature had gained him the sobriquet of the 'Veiled Prophet.' ' This Is an Knglish Court,' rejoined the witness, quietly, 'and jou have no richt to impose- torture before putting the question.' Prisoners have a lair proportion ol ' happy .answers' credited to them. Of those perhaps the best known are that of the man who, ?when asked if be pluaded ' guilty or not guilty,' replied that he couldn't say till he had heard the evidence; arid the naive response of the prisoner to the...

The Sketcher. The History of Betting. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 February 1898

The Sketcher. The History of Betting. in tracing the history and origin of hotting one has to go back as far as the Old Testament for the lirst sporting wager on record. Iu the Hook of Judges, Samson asks his thirty companions a riilOle. and offers to wager ' thirty sheets and thirty chang-as of {.'.iniicnts' that they do uot answer it. Unfortunately for Samson the riddle was solved (the ' stable secret' being given away by his lover) aud Samson lost the bet, which he ' settled.' (See Judges siv. 12-10.) Although the history of betting has never beeu written, it is assumed that it owes its origin to the ancient custom of asking riddles, in which the pro pounder staked to lose a certain sum if llio solution was correct, or he would win the equivalent if the answer could not bo given. This was a popular form ut ;iimisoniont among the early nations, including the Hebrews, the Kgypliaus, the Phoenicians. Persians. Arabians. mid Greeks. It is not positively certain that the custom of bet...

A HAN WHO PROMISED TO REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 February 1898

A MAN WHO PROMISED TO REFORM. ? ? ? It was six o'clock on Sunday morning when the poker game ended, and he lost no time in getting one of those dejected jags that many men get nfter losing a lot of sleep and chips. He was a New Yorker in business, but had a suburban home in Jersey. He knew that his wife had sat up all night, rocking in the rocking-chair, murmuring, 'Oh, the cruel villain I Why did I ever marry him V and other pleasant things, for it wasn't his first night out. As thoughts of home came to him he ordered the drinks quicker. He was getting a quick jag. He believed he needed .it. Finally, when he climbed into a cab and ordered the driver to hurry to the Jersey ferry, he was in a melancholy mood. He talked to himself on the way over, and anathematised the big clocks on the tall buildings. He : declared that he had played his last-, game of poker ; he re solved never to take another drink ; he made up hie mind to leave the crowd. -. , When he shouted ' Good night ' to the...
