Her Great Renunciation. (All Rights Reserved). [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902
Her Great Reiiuiiciatioii. (By Nilyah.) (All Rights Reserved). At the front •window of a coinforta ble-looking residence in one of the suburbs of Sydney a girl was standing looking out in a dreamy sort of "way; her eyes seemed to rest on nothing iii particular. She heeded not the garden gay "with spring flowers, the shrubbery, the pretty villa residences beyond, the view of lulls and shimmering patches of blue water, and sunlit sky; her vision seemed to go beyond, as if into unknown spaces. She was a lair girl, of medium height; a graceful figure, well set off by a long trailing robe of an indefinite pink shade; her features were regular, and her eyes deep violet, with long lashes and dark eyebrows. It was more than a pretty face, and showed strong lines of character in its still girlish softness. ' Presently the door of the room opened, and a voice exclaimed, Oh, here you are, waiting for Harold!" . The girl started from her reverie, and turned to meet the speaker with a pleasant s...
THE VEGETABLE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902
THE VEGETABLE GAKDEN. Nothing is more important to'ihe large or small householder than n vegetable garden, be it small or big. There is nothing so interesting as gardening when thoroughly gone into, and when it is carried out in a proper manner it is j very useful to its owner in many ways. • The first thing is to plan out the little vegetable garden. Plan out the beds, making allowance for walks, etc. Then, when this lias been done you can commence to dig; of course, if there is not a natural drainage, then it will be necessary to drain the land. I find thut in making beds for vegetables it does not do to make them too big. For my pait, I never make a bed more than H x 8, except, of course, when you are growing on a largo scale; you have then to decile for yourself. Now, of course, no soil aver comes to that state when it is useless, I intend to deal, however, with tliis matter as if your soil was badly drained and therefore j*ou would need to drain it. Unless the soil is stony or ...

The Simultaneous Mission in the Country. GENERAL NOTES. Tho Missions already held, and those in progress, are yielding good results. The Orange Mission—liev. E. B. S. Hammond, miBsioner was blessedly fruitful. The Bev. T. W. Dunn has just finished his work at Albuiy. The whole town was stirred.- Prayer meetings at 6.30 a.m. Bible Headings and outdoor meetings later on every day, and at night crowded gatherings.

Literary Notes. [By " Tinea."] A Laureateship goes "by favour. -Whom the Sovereign delighta to honour has no option. in the matter. His greater fellow in "the poetic realm not bo honoured in equally without option. A mighty genius of inferior social repute is not eligible now for a host at Court, "which is necessarily of a high social di&lt;ruity. And the acceptable man must have already won the monarch's favour wheu his Laureateship was an unthiukublo liappeniug. So Mr. Alfred Austin was choson. He has already given us "Lyrics," " A Defence of ISngluud's Spring/' aud "England's Darliug." His connection with the latter earned biw in club-laud the sobriquet, " Austin Alfred the Great.1' Nor is the title ridiculous, morally considered. Mr. Austin is a truly English, religious-minded gentleman of high and spiritual aims and purposes for the good of his fellow Saxons. So far he has succeeded in keeping piratical publishers —the litenuy Danes—off our shores. This is something. Th...

"If you cant make things out, why don't you ask the parson, or," he added, as if a second thought, " we will go , orer to St. Mary's next Sunday; Father M gives a first-class sermon, and I daresay you will drop on to 6ome idea that will help you-" " Harold, we agreed not to try and convert one another from the religion in which we had oach been brought up." "W^oli, I don't see that there is a very wide difference after all, and, if you do, why should ' you ask me anything about the matter?" he said, a little sullenly, for now that he had recovered from his alarm, he felt aggrieved with her for causing it.

"We have an altar, whereof they hare no right to eat which serve the tabernacle " By Sim therefore let its offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually.** Heb. ziiit 9,10,15. j The Christians to whom this Epistle was addressed, were Christians under peculiar circumstances. They had come out from Judaism, hut were being attracted back to it. The drift had set in stroDgly in the direction of the old religion. They were in danger oi going back —back to their old faith, to their old ritual, to their old altars; and the writer exhorts : them against this, both by setting forth j the awful guilt and consequences of apostacy, ; and ako by shewing tliem that what they had come to was something far better, fuller, and richer than what they had left behind; and auioiig the priv...

Personal and Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 14 June 1902
Personal and Otherwise. •A .Sydney clergyman is known as the smoking Carr. Anybody seeing Melbourne's R.C. Archbishop's jaunty walk might dub Mm the Motor Carr. Up Walgett way it was proposed to give a retired municipal employee an honerarium. Said one of the councillors : " Sure, what's the good of giving the poor man an honorarium ? He couldn't play on it if ye did, he bavin' no more ear for music than a cow. Give him a few pounds an1 be done wid it." One suburban clergyman said that be know a certain euro for insomnia* " My dear chap," said a brother of the cloth, " if I ever suiter from sleeplessness I'll certainly come and hear you preach." A Melbourne, mystery to, rank with the miss* ing man, is the mystery of Ned Kelly's armour. Once stored in the Treasury lumber room, now gone nobody seems to know whither. Of course, all the Waxworks have, as per their managerial notices, "the original armour as worn by Ned Kelly," but this theatrical dodge is about as genuine as the claim o...

Woman's Column. Martha" will bo glad to receive and answer any communications addressed to her, care of the Editor 9 Jamieson Street.. Church HilLl Dear Doecas,—I am going to speak generally oil the fashions of the day, and I will begin at the last, but certainly not the least, of those 101 "Trifles" which characterise a woman'B dress, and add so much to the finish. TJiis beiug the ladies* column, I can speak without fear of disdainful interruptions. Mankind, with an air of calin superiority, pretend to regard with contempt our 4&lt; trifles" in dress.

Having veiy little time at my will ask you to go with me into the above subject and listeu to some of the dainty trifles now worn in Sydney. # ♦ * Ruffles, boas, scarves, are immensely worn, not for warmth, but for ornament, and they do not fail in their mission. The ruffles are composed of wave upon wave of chiffon...

She entreated business men to» give heed to politics and purify the party by purifying the primaries; not to say that politics were too dirty to be touched by respectable people, but by their presence to bring about the return of men who represented those who voted for them.
