An Amusing Story. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 16 November 1901
Ad AmuHiug Story. Mr. Arthur Roberts tells an amusing ?tory of the initiation of the custom of musical arti*U using priratebrougham-j. 'Jenny Hill,' he says, ' one of the cleverest performers who ever trod the stage, was the first to ride in h--r own carriage. The ttecond music-hall turn was a celebrated company of negro tketcb performers, three in number, They bought a brougham for about £5, and the turn out caused great excitement, and the nobility and gentry of the neighbourhood cheered when the third roan, slighting, banged to the door behind him in aristocratic fashion. That bang, however, was their undoing. When they essayed to re-enter their carriage, the door was stuck fast. The bang bad dislocated the works. So tb«7 bid to humbly walk round tho brougham and enter from the off-side. While ^oing alon^ the Mile End-road, tt the best gallop, the bottom of the £5 brougham fell out. Two members of the team managed to curl up on the seats. The third man, a very tall roan, had to r...
A Sweep in Court. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 16 November 1901
A Sweep in Court. All uncon;cious nf the insult offered to the majesty of the most ancient court in the realm, there entered to take his place among the jury at an inquest at Higligate a chimnoy-sweep, in the full panoply of ma trade— ebony black in face and hands, shaking the grime of the flues on lo the floor as he moved. The Coroner's officer at once espied this Beau Brutnmel of the soot ba^, and carefully separated him from the rest of the jurors until Mr. Walter Schroder, his superior, arrived. The delinquent seemed quite unaware of the iocongruity of his appearance; it was a busy month for Bwec-ps, and he had left his work only in time to come straight to the court. His servioes were dispensed with pending a much needed wash. Only a few days before a metropolitan magistrate had to reprimand a tradesman for appearing before him costless, with slet ves rolled up. Next we may have an under taker's man turning to assist justice in bis orapfi hat and weepers, or a Turkish bath atte...
FIRST OCEAN STEAMSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 16 November 1901
FIRST OCEAH STEAMSHIP. The first vessel to cross the At lantic, partly under steam, wns the 1 Savannah ' of 350 tons. She left New York on March 29, 1819, for Savannah (Georgia), where she ar rived on April 6. On the 20th of May she started for Liverpool direct, but the offer of good accommodation for passengers wns declined. Cork was made on June fj, nnd the soiling master's account of her greetings is curious. She was seen from the telegraph station at Cupe Clear, and reported as a ship on fire. Tho Admiral, who lay in the Cove of Cork, despatched one of the King's cutlers lo her relief; but great wns their wonder at their inability, with nil sail set, in a fast vessel, to come up with a ship under bare poles. After several shots were fired from the cutter the engine was stopped, and the surprise ol her crew at the mistake they had made, as well as their curiosity to see the singular Yankee craft, can easily be imagined. Unfortunately, the log had to chronicle ' no cole to git up ...
THE CHINESE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 16 November 1901
THE CHINESE FAMILY, Tcliengki-Tong, (or some lime Military Attache' of China at Paris, siijs, in his book entitled ' The Chinese painted by themselves :' — The Chinese family may be likened to a co-operative society. All ila members are under the obliealion to live in community, and to render mutual assistance. History mentions an ancient minister named Tchang, who united under his roof all the members of his family proceeding from nine generations. This example is cited as a model we should all en deavour to imitate. Thus constituted, the family is a kind of religious order, subject to fixed rules. All its resources are united in a single fund, and all con tributions are made without distinc tion ot more or less, lhe family is subject, to the regime of ' equality ' and ' fraternity ' — great words, which in China are written in lhe hearts, and not, as elsewhere, upon tho walls. Every member of the fnmily has to conduct himstlf in such a manner as to maintain haimony. This is a stud...

The Russian Peasant Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 16 November 1901
The Russian Peasant Soldier. To a particularly bright number of ' Pearson's Magazine ' Mr. W. Barnes Sleveni contributes 'A Character Sketch of Tvnn Ivanovitch, the Russian Peasant Soldier, the Backbone of the Czar's Army.' From the article one gets a very interpslimj and compre hensive view of the Russian soldier's life, '? Ivan Ivanovitch,' bpins; the Russian equivalent for 'Tommy Atkins.' He is the worst paid soldier in Europe, and thereforo has a very hard time during his four years of service, unless his good folks nt homn aro inclined to bo generous. Thn infantry soldier is paid about 8d a month and tho cavalry sold'cr snly a little more. Sprgeants receive nbnut half a crown. a rr.nnth, and young officers from JE3 to £10, according to their regiinnnts. Thn higher arn also very poorly paid in comparison to officers of rank in other armies But though ihn conditions of service are so hard, and thp pny so Rmall, bis country dops not forget the good conduct man.

The Coronation. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 16 November 1901
The Coronation. Apparently, says ' Vanity Fair, theio is a jjood deal of misunderstand ing with respect to the ' call ' that ie to take plncR in Westminister HaM next JunH during thn Coronation Week- It is being confused, perhaps pHrtlonuMy, with the ' call ' of ono or other of the Houses of Parliament ; liut the things as a matter of fact aro entirely distinct. The Ooionation ' call,' which lias been arranged for the date immediately following the ceremonial of crowning, is for the purpote of receiving nddrcsses to the Kinjj, and of lh« taking of the Oath of Allegiauce. A ' call ' of Parliament on tlie other hand is for purely Par liamentary purposes, and it is now virtunlly obsolete. It used to hn resorted to, upon urgent occasion*, lo insure the attendance of Peers or Commoners, und was enforced, if necessary, by line or evon imprison ment. All the arrangements for the Coronation ceremony are in abeyance until about the about the middle of November, Tlie whole of the cere n.ontal...
