A ROMANCE. (NEW YORK TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

A BOMANOE. (NEW vYOB rmxs.) There is in a rural Kentucky village amiddle-aged, grey-haired school teacher. He is near sighted, excessively bashful, and densly ignorant of the nature and habits of girls. Everybody concedes that he is a good man, but he has always .been believed to be as impervious to romance as is a rhino ceros in a travelling menagerie. And yet into this dry and mathematical person's prosaic life has lately.come a unique and charming romance, and he has been led to study girls and their uses-with snointerest even greater than that which he formerly found' in com pound fractions and cube roots. Last ,winter this remarkable man was engaged to teach the Harlansville district school. He did not know a soul in the village; but the -school :trustees, knowing that he had. conducted the male department of a Frankfort school with eminent uccess, engaged him" at .as largel_'salary. __The :Harlasville scholars included the youth of both sexes, -and were, for the most part, ord...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. 26/9/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY CosMOPOLITE. 261 .9 178. Sie the Vicinityo f ,a oor and Sinith streets, Fitzoy, there is an hotel which, if rumour be true, is frequently the scene of actions that should not .be.tolerated in any locality bearing pretensions to respectability; and the proprietor of which, for the credit of the neighbor hood, should be compelled to conduct his business in a less obnoxious and disgraceful manner. On Saturday night last, about twelve o'clock, the said locality was made hideous with the row created- by some young. fellows who asserted loudly that they had been robbed in the hotel in question, and the proprietor thereof was to be seen whirl ing a stick over his head and vowing vengeance on somebody or another who had aroused his ire. One individual was staggering about the footpath with an ugly gaping gash in his forehead, howling like a maniac, and hardly a feature to be recognised. Another one had his arm hanging down by his side in an apparently useless conditio...

CHAPTER XXI. BAD NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

CHAPTER XXL. BAD NEWS. During these many weary weeks Ada continued to work assiduously in the evening in the little parlor, having Edith for her sole companion, if we except Mr. Pipkins, who was teased worse than ever by that saucy girl. Ada, in her solitude, could not re frain from shedding many bitter tears. She had sacrificed everything for Charles, and now he treated her with cold neglect. At times, in the privacy of her room, she gave free vent to her sobs and sighs. For she could not help perceiving notwithstanding his protestations to the contrary, when oc casionally she ventured gently to remonstrate with him for his coolness to her, that she was no longer as well loved by him as formerly. There was a time she thought, when, where her shadow fell, there was his likewise, and when their voices followed like an echo one upon another. One evening Edith said to her "I have no patience with that cousin of yours. He appears to shun you. He is a worthless fellow, and you should fli...

CHAPTER XX. A BARGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

CHAPTER XX. A BARGAIN. The following morning the Mulloch family were loud in their united praises of our hero Charles. Never tufore-had a young man of his tone, his savoir vivre, and his polite bearing graced their parties by his presence. The great aim and end of the Mullocks-papa, mamma, and daughter was, having money, and a redundancy of it, to gain a position in fashionable and in literary society, and to move among the elite. This they wanted to do, however, on the cheapest terms possible, in the way of preliminary entertainments. The mamma Mullock, who, on the plea of her daughter's health, would yearly save a quarter's school fees, money that she expended in extra gorgeousness of apparel, was charmed with the young man. He had admired her dancing. Yet as she con fessed to him, with much pride in the admission, as it was strong proof of her intuitive talent for the graceful accom plishment, she had never had a lesson in it in her life. "It is so easy," she said, "if you do but...

THE RUSSIANS BEFORE PLEVNA. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

TEE R USSIANS BEFORE - PLEVNA. He who watched the dreadful scene from one of the neighbouring hills, and who has given us this vivid description of what he saw. heard the tempest-gust of wrath, half-howl, half-yell, with which the Russian infantry, - their bayonets' at the charge, rushed on to avenge their colonel, who had been struck down by a Turkish shell. In another moment they were over the parapet and shelter-trench, 'and in aiimong the Tuiks like an avalanche. The: slaughter was terrific, but the outer edge of .the first position was won.'- The assailants ought' now to have turned the shelter thus obtained against the main position of their ad versaries; but, inspired; probably, by their temporary success. they continued to ascend the slope, though in some what broken 'order; The' Turkish'fire from the next position thinned their ranks to an alarming extent; yet, _whil?ehesitating_ once- or_ twice, they continued to advance. It took them half-an-hour to traverse the ground. b...

ANECDOTES OF ANGLING. COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

ANECDOTES OF ANGLING. coUraY. - ANECDOTES of angling are probably more interesting to 'anglers than any amount of dry disquisition osi the gentle craft. I confess, anyhow, to a liking for a good yarn, and to a love for spin ning one, and, if the Editor will permit. 1. as well as "Rambler," would ltke to have my say. I am essentially a Thames fisherman and, as one of, forty years' standing, and lookaback obnthe grand old river and I people its banks and- its. placid surface with memories dear to me some 'of the living, but more the long since_' departed--of great, anglers, mighty Nimrods of the water, quaint old Thames fishermen, and splendid days' sport, before the steam launch, and before the omnipresent clubbite appeared on the scene. Oh, what a host of grateful recollections rise as I think of the multitude of days I have spent on our national river ! Some curious incidents have occurred, too; in this my long experience. Well d6 I recollect, at Sunbury Weir, standing, one bright ...

THE BITERS BITTEN. (BENALLA STANDARD) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

THE BITERS BITTEN. A very good story isbeing circulated through the North-Eastern distriet just now, concerning two itinerant shanty keepers, who, when they hear of any large contract which is being carried on immediately go and pitch their tent, and cariy on a system of sly-grog selling, to the detriment of the health, as well as the pockets, of the unfortu nate narvies employed there. These two individuals migrated from Victoria over the border, to where the railway line from Albury to Wagga Wagga is being'constrncted, but, as- the sequel shows, they were not 'the first in the field there being already a vendor of liquors on the scene-one Mrs O'C-- Nevertheless, they, nothing daunted, "opened shop," and soon established a very fair business, which in a short time obliged them to send for stock, wherewith to supply their customers. But alas I with all their success, they were not exempt from feelings of jealousy towards their rival ; so to get rid of her, as well as to ingratiate t...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, SEPT. 28, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 September 1878

PUBUSHED 'EVERY SATURDAY. Labo omn ia'incit. SATURDAY, SEPT. 28, 1878. OUR contemporary, the Argus, on Wednesday last inserted a communica tion from its Jikashire correspondent relative to the Shire affairs of that district. , The information,' therein contained exhibits only too forcibly the great straits to which that Co'uncil has been financially placed, in consequence of the abolition of the tolls. With some of the conclusions and opinions ventured by.the Argus correspondent we cannot coincide; nor are we inclined to regard the position of the Shire as irremediable, notwithstanding' the deprivation of the great revenue it derived from the road toll. With the general question of the tolls our readers are well aware of our opinions, as we have repeatedly, in our leading columns, thereto given expres sion. The writer in question, after detailing at length the unhappy state of the Shire, rails at what is evidently regarded by him as the extravagance of the local dignitaries, in refe...
