LOST IN THE FOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
LOST IN T1 O FOG. , Evc old hunters, who have roamed the plains and mountains until they are fanmiliar with every foot of the ground, are liable t under peculiar circumstances to become bewildered. They are completely "turned a round," as the common raying is. The streams all flow the wrong way, and the sun " sets in the east. As soon as the experie:ncCed hunter realises his condition, hle makey a camp, lies down, and goes to sleep. \Vhee She awakes everything has come round right. ] But more troublesome than such on attack is the coming of a fog. In a few minutes s the peaks and headlands, the guides by which the traveller lays his course, are [ obscured and the sun is hidden. In an article contributed to " The Big Game of I North America," the Rev. Joshua Cooke narrates his experience in a fog, while hunt. ing with his son among the mountains of Oregon. One morning, though there was every indication that a fog might roll down by noon, they started for a hunt. Several deer fell to ...
WISE WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
WISE WORL)S. IF the fox is king, bow before him. Deal with those who are fortunate. The rivalry of scholars advances science. Teach thy tongue to say "I do not know." A single light answers as well for a hun dired men as for one. There are two opposite ways by which some men get into notice-one by talking a vast deal and thinking a little, and the other by holding their tongues and not thinking at all. Thy friend has a friend, and thy friend's friend has a friend ; be discreet. There is a false idea afloat in the stream of life, which is that when people love up we can be rude to them, that because they know we love them they will forgive every lack of courtesy. Now this is absolutely untrue; the closer two peole are united by the bond of love the more necessary is it for them to observe every law of polite ness. If a word spoken in its time is worth one piece of money, silence in its time is worth two.
HE DID NOT RECOGNISE IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
HE DID NOT RECOGNISE IT. A WeLLttNoWN citizen who resides in the northern part of the town, when he went out bbrheaded this morning after the paper, found a hat lying on the sidewalk in front of his gate. Some fellow, while on a spree during the night, must have lost it, he thought. The hat was a little the worse for mud, but it was a good one, and he picked it up and took it to show his wife. " Mary," he said, "just look what I've found." " Why, that's a real nice hat, John,"she said. " Well, I should think it is." " Where in the world did you find it !" " Oh, out on the sidewalk." "But how dilld he get there?" "Get there !" he said in surprise. "Well, that's a nice question to ask I Get there I Great Scott I Do you think it grew like a mushroomn-hey? Mebbe you imagine it walked there on its ear. Get there I Why, any fool would know that some chap lost it on a howling drunk." "But he might claim ib ?" she interposed mildly. Oh, no-I bet he was so full he can'6 remember now whether ...

STAGE FRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
STAGE FRIGHT. I ONC. senlt "on " a young mI.ea student in the character of a lover who had to make a declaration, be accepted, be sur prised by a rival, challenge him on the spot, declare he would net stir until this green sward was stained with the blood of one if not of both, order parenthetically pistols for two at once and coffee for two in ten minutes, and, in fact, go through the greatest amount of bombast compressible into a abort time. Of course the lovemaking was to be of the most highilown character. On he went, and at the sight of the audi ence and the lady seated at her work-table subsided immediately into a very abyss of fear. Instead of rushing frantically toward the object of his affections, flinging himself on his knees, and bursting into tremendous rhapsody, as bhe ought to have done, he simlly stared at her, twisting his hat feebly in his bands. Not one word could lie say, but in dead silence crept across the stage, slowly took up a chair, offered to sitdown, looke...

FORTUNATE FOR THE COLLECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
FORTUNATE, FOR THE COLLECTORS. A sontPsaxNo numberof interestingsouve. nirs of Napolcon are to be found in collections of objects of interest in France. Various mantles which the great General wore ab Austerlitz, and a quantity of wearingapparel which he must have found inconvenient at Waterloo, are proudly displayed by collect. bra. A more valuable and important relic than any of these is, of course, the pen with which Napoleon signed his abdication. Arsane Houusaye, a French journalist and man of letters, had two friends who were onthusi untic possessore of the abdication pen. He had the happy thought of introducing them to each other. He explained that each had a pen of undoubted authenticity, and wasted to see what would happen. "It is easily explained !" exclaimed both .ollectore. " Napoleon abdicated twice." NownaER in the world Is it more true that in the midst of life we are in death than among the tribe of Makololos. Despite the comparative civilizatiun of the old fol. lowe...
PHILOSOPHY OF LONGEVTTY. What Men and Women Who Aspire to be Centenarians Must do—a Training. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
PHILOSOPHY OF LONG~V1TTY. What Men and Women Who Aspire to be Centenarians Must do-a Train ing. There is much in modern life that tends to shorten existence and to diminishi the probability that a man or woman will reach 90, to say nothing of 100. We lead more ex citing and more wearing lives. It is in vain that a person lias a splendid constitution to begin with, wears flannel, or the equivalent of flannel, next to his skin,dwellsin a warm, dry house,andeats and drinkseverythingthat Is good and wholesome, if at the same time he habitually overtaxes his strength, looks upon his muscles as mere machinery to be driven at high pressure, and ruthlessly calls upon his nerves to squander their reserve power when every other source of energy is exhausted. Men or women who intend to be centeua rians in thesoe ays must Ceoolne someuLlllng of the new mode of living. They must,Iwhile availing themselves of all the scientific dis. coveries and sanitary appliances of the age, Imitate their grand...

Sketcher. Cold Charity. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 22 June 1894
Cold Charity. "God helps those who help themselves, and the true typo of the worthy poor always prefers to depend more upon Providence and Iis own exertions in thiJ terrible and unequal strugglea against the gaunt wolf of poverty, than to accept the refrigerated, methodical charity that is flanked by perpetual espionago and arbitrarydictation,strained and grudgingly bestowed. It is true that, in a world so tainted by fr.ud and'iplrosition, certain precautionl are necessary to guard against the artful and designing, tihe crafty and worthless ilmpostor; and hence it hal)pens that in the provisions of systemised benefac tions, tihe innocent often sautffer with the guilty. In the humiliating surveillance of charitable detectives, the innocent are always compelled to partake of the de grading and bitter draught prepared for tihe hypocritical alms-seeker; and so gal ling at times, are the wounds inflicted upon a sensitive spirit, inl the efforts to heal the bodily ailments, that the tortu...
