SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 March 1885

?SUPPERS. ? Suppers are a mistake unless they are in fact, if not in name, late dinners, and taken at a reasonably early hour. When our forefathers consumed their princi pal meal at midday, somewhere between our breakfast and luncheon; they supped heavily at seven or eight o'clook, and went to bed about half-past nine or ten. This was equivalent ' to dining at the time now commonly chosen for our heaviest meal. Wo have in fact gone back to the old way of life, merely changing the names of our meals ; but !we, commit the extreme folly of sitting up; far -'m to the night, and some of us get hungry again, and must needs have supper, if it be only a dish of broiled bones. These same bones, or rather tho slices of meat on them, take, according to Beaumont's tables — which, be it re membered, refer only to the stomach process — nearly three hours to digest. It follows that the digestive organs are not left free to fall into a state of physiological rest or sleep, until towards morning ; a...

WHAT SHE WANTED TO KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 March 1885

WHAT SHE WANTED TO KNOW. A North-Devon magistrate was sitting in his room when there entered the wife of one of the tenants. Asked her busi ness, she said, ' Well, your honour, I suppose you unows my husband Jalin is vbry bad, not likely to recover ?' ''yes,' said the magistrate; ;,I have heard so. and am extremely sorry. He is one of my best tenants, and I shall miss him very much indeed.' ' Yes,' said Mrs. Smith, 'it's a bad job. Jahn is going sure enough. I suppose you knows Farmer ' Jackson ? r He's a widler (widower), and wants somebody '?^ery bad to mind his cows and calves ; and I'm sure, when Jahn's gone, I shall want somebody to talk to about the weather and crops ; so, please your honour, we've made up our minds to be married when Jahn's gone.' The magistrate said he did not altogether disapprove of second marriages, but he thought it was most indecent for Mrs! Smith ^ to be talking ' about marrying again before her first husband was gone, more especially such a good man a...

THE ACTOR CAUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 March 1885

' THE ACTOR GAtJGHT. A clever French comedian, when a , young and struggling actor in Paris, hit oil an ingenious plan to save himself the walk'from the theatre after rehearsal to his lodgings, which were situated near Montmartre cemetery. He dressed in black, and, if he espied a funeral proces sion with a vacant seat in any of the coaches.' nromDtlv nulled out a handker chief and hid his face'in it while hailing the Vehicle. Under the. impression that he was one of the mourners arrived late, he wa6j of course, immediately installed in the . - vacant seat. This went on for some time, till, one unlucky, day, the actor attempted to talk to his. compan ions; ' Poor thing, I weep for her !' he said from the folds of the handker chief. ' He is dead — not she,' replied his opposite neighbour. 'I know, I know .; ; - ' but so young 1 ' Our good friend was sixty eight last birthday,' objected ' another.

RESPECT FOR THE MUSKET. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 March 1885

. RESPECT FOR THE MUSKET. .' 'While near Nashville, during the American Civil War, General Steedman. had a -negro-regiment on the picket line, and a bright young mulatto, seijeant in command of a post got the- drop ' on a rebel post and captured ' the whole outfit.' The Sessionists were high class' young Virginians, and gome of them were irritated at the idea of having to .surrender to a ' lot or niggers. ; General Steedman took their comman ? der, a fine young fellow, into his tent, : showed him some little conrtesies, and, in' the course of the conversation, said, ' It was a little tough, lieutenant, to be ; taken 'in by coloured soldiers ; but war ! has /strange' experiences.' ' Well, Gen eral,' said the other, ' I've been in the j^rmy now nearly four years, and, if I've llearned anything, it has- been , si pro found -respect for the musket. When ithe- muzzle is thr.iist into my face, I don't . Uflually ask any; questions as ' to Iwho's got hold of the breech.'

SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 March 1885

SERVICE. I At what point in the social scale does tho word ' servant become objection able ? A public servant is proud of tho title.' To bo a- servant of the Church is the' ambition of brilliant and...loarned men.' Tho measuro of; professional and' scientific reputation is the service done. The expression of the most graceful courtesy is ' Command me— how can I servo you ?' The phrase ' of formal re spect is ' Your.obedient servant.' And yet, unaccountably, the very'service that friends do for each other,, that the mem bers of the family give in common if they happen to be poor in money, is absurdly considered disgraceful, a personal dishonour, when performed for wages. . The dishonour cannot come, in with the pay. Ministers aie paid and doctors and scientists. The fact is that heads are so full of nonsense about these things that it is hard to get at the sound reason which would set them right. Everybody must have relations' with other human beings, his' equals, his inferiors and h...
