The Human Form Divine. A Buriks of Artici-ks Writtkn Sp£Ciaiyt.,V for thk 'Bi.uk Mountain Echo.' Bv A BLUK MOUNTAINKKR. III. -HANDS. ' The osseous structure of the hand and wrist is very complex and curious, com prising twenty-seven bones— eight in the wrist, five in the body of the hand, and fourteen in the fingers and thumb.' I war rant you don't stop to think of all this when you're doing a quiet little squeeze. Yet it might be useful to learn by heart, and verify next time you want an excuse for a little longer squeeze. That is, if you haven't got to the stage when excuses are no longer necessa^. If you are a woman there isn't much to choose from in this sketch. There seem to be onty three or four male hands depicted at most, and one pair of these, in folded contemplation, are the hands of one who is too well satisfied with himself to want to squeeze your hand. And another, even if the knife he holds is not bent on nefarious practices, is too busy just now with his ac customed i...

A Maltese Vendetta. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

A Maltese Vendetta. It was a lonely spot on the Strada Reale, which runs out from Valetta, in the island of Malta. A lonely spot indeed, overlooking a deep ravine, .with the raging sea beyond, and according to superstitious rumour, haunted by shrieking spectres — 'victims of the yawning depths below. Half a century ago the people of Valetta shud dered in the sunlight when they were compelled to pass that way, and few dared at night court the 1ir\ctvifa1-it'\» nf flifi 1~iniirni£»f r\f Tif^'i + li nc fr1if»v r-ci11pfl it, by venturing within its ghostly purlieus. So many mysterious deaths occurred there — crimes both committed and expiated, some bear ing the impress of murder, and others of suicide —that the British military authorities determined to place a sentry on the spot, who was instructed not merely to challenge all passers, but to report any circumstances that might happen during his guard. ' The following incident, related to me by a friend who spent some time in the island...

Of course I went to see a doctor, but he held out very slight hope of re covery. I persevered with the treatment he recommended, bufc without any good re Bult. At last I called on another doc tor, but h© failed .also to bring mo any benefit. I was suffering terribly then, and 1 thought I should go out of my mind, as I could neither sleep nor rest, night or day. The skin was. all hanging in ribbons, and the arms looked just like raw beefsteak, while the irritation was so terrible that I got desperate Bometimes and felt I would like to scratch my arms to pieces.

Equipment of Schools. FOR THE GOOD OF THE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

Equipment of Schools. FOR. THE GOOD OF THE STATE. The following is the circular issued by the Bom bala Parents and Citizens' Association in regard to the equipment of schools under the heading, 1 ' For the Good of the Slate' ' :— . ' ' The children of to-day are the men and women of to-morrow,' whose physical, moral and intel lectual well-being are moulded, to a large extent, by their good life and school surroundings : and the proper development of all three is unduly re tarded in many cases by unsuitable conditions ; as for example, the matters of lighting, ventilation, sanitation, and seating arrangements, which may affect their eyesight, general health, and even the formation of their bodies. In the past, these matters have not received proper consideration. School buildings and teachers' residences have been allowed, in most cases, to fall into a serious state of disrepair, and in many instances the over ? crowding of schools has been such as to call for severe condemnation, an...

The Lessons of a Mail Train. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

The Lessons of a Mail Train. [Written for the ' Mountain Echo' by R.S.] Having to meet a friend at the Central Railway Station, and finding myself at the appointed place rather early, I wandered on to the platform from whence the Western Mail takes its departure. Being the season for favorable travelling the train was packed to almost overcrowding, and late comers were greeted with that most exasperating chorus ' Come on, there's plenty of room on the rack.' The platform was crowded with the usual array of friends— the everlasting pests of the busy porters when wheeling their piled trucks of lug gage wmen now ana again orougni rorui a cry as the)'' went over the toes of some gouty old gent, or the tootsies of some fair damsel. Truly, a great drama is enacted nightly at our Central Railway Station, here business men were met with going for their well earned yearly holiday in search of new vigor to pull them through the strenuous year to come. Happy little children, the breaking up of...

The Handy Man. We bolted for the station when the call of 'fire'? ? came through, . ' Since we had a reputation to maintain ; But things were only middling and the air was fairly blue, With the captain jumping round and raising' Cain. For he hadn't any horses, and the crowd enjoyed the joke, , , When a dozen man-o'-warsmen came in view, And to save our cussing skipper from an apoplec tic stroke They volunteered to take the engine through. ' Never mind the blooming horses, serve us out a coil of rope And we'll take her into action like a gun ' ; Then they heaved until they got her fairly started on the slope,'' : ,' And went yelling down the High Street at a run. The pace kept growing hotter till the engine seemed to nV, And the wa}T in which they handled her was deft. 'Twas a pity that the building which was burning chanced to lie Round a ver}' nasty corner on the left. Now the tar that did the steering was a navigator skilled, ?? :'..
