TO THE NORTH POLE. UNDER THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
TO THE NORTH POLE. UNDER THE SEA. &nbsp; &nbsp; Herr Anschutz-Kampfe, of Vienna, has practically completed his plans for the most remarkable of Arctic explora- tions, in which he will actually attempt to reach the North Pole by means of a submarine boat. When the Austrian scientist first brought his project before the Geo- graphical Society assembled at Vienna, a year ago. it was looked upon as visionary. One objection after another was raised, and there were many who regarded the idea as simply preposter- ous. Herr Anschutz-Kampfe, however, like Columbus, was convinced of the feasibility of his idea, and he did not give up because scientific men thought &nbsp; unfavorably of it. &nbsp; &nbsp; By applying first to one capitalist &nbsp; and then to another, by the hardest &nbsp; kind of work, backed by the greatest &nbsp; The wonderful Boat which will make a Dash for the North Pole. amount of determination, he has at &am...
Our Sunday Serial THE MALLISON MYSTERY. BOOK THE FIRST. AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. [COPYRIGHT.] CHAPTER I. THE LADY OF WOODLEA PARK [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
THE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MALLISON MYSTERY. BOOK THE FIRST. CHAPTER i. &nbsp; THE LADY OF WOODLEA PARK &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The sleety January day was dying out and giving place to a savage, screaming wind-swept night. The yellow line that lay close to the wes- tern horizon struck a saffron gleam over the fallen snow, and brought out in sharp relief the skeleton shapes of the writhing wind-worried trees; and &nbsp; over the ice-locked bosom of the Ohio River, and up the white slopes of Woodlea Park, the gale came scream- ing and howling in fierce cyclonic gusts that were sometimes like the shrill, &nbsp; high-pitched notes of a wounded eagle, and sometimes like the deep-toned bellow of the sea. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; In the darkening stormy distance the lamps of Coal City glowed fitfully, &nbsp; like fireflies tangled in a web of crape; &nbsp; &nbsp; an...
CHAPTER II. KATE BAWTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
CHAPTER II. &nbsp; &nbsp; KATE BAWTRY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Instantly, unhesitatingly, Hilda un- latched the window, threw up the sash, drew the poor, benumbed crea- ture into the warmth and radiance of the luxurious room, and with a word of tender sympathy led her to a deep soft seat beside the fire; but, with a &nbsp; moan of desolation and despair, Katy Bawtry broke away from the gentle hand that rested upon her shoulder, and turning to Philip Mallison, dropped down on her knees at his feet, drawing her child down beside her and pressing its blue, benumbed hands together in the attitude of prayer. "Pray to him, baby ! pray to bim for the poor father's sake !" she cried in a think, bleak voice of agitation and anguish. "Oh sir! oh, Mr Mallison ! for the Lord's sake, save my Jem ! save little Katy ! save the old granny ! save me ! It's us you're a-sacrificin', sir! it's us at'll suffer the most; and and WE never armed you, sir— never ...
THE CORONATION. KING'S HISTORIC CHAIR. LEGENDS OF THE STONE OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
KING'S HISTORIC CHAIR. &nbsp; LEGENDS OF THE STONE OF FATE. The Regalia used in the latter coro- nations are, with one or two exceptions, of modern origin. The ancient Regalia, including the golden eagle, and the glass vial containing the holy oil brought down from Heaven according to legend by the Virgin Mary, and the crowns of King Alfred, were destroyed or melted down by order of the Long &nbsp; Parliament. The English Regalia &nbsp; consist of the Crown, the Sceptre, the Virge, or rod, symbolising power, the Orb (also called the mound) of sovereignty, the Sword of Mercy known as Curtana, the two Swords of Justice, the Ring of Alliance with the Realm of England, the Armillæ or Bracelets, the Spurs of Chivalry, and &nbsp; various ecclesiastical and regal vest- &nbsp; &nbsp; ments. To some extent the &nbsp; Coronation Chair &nbsp; may claim to be included among the Regalia, and as it is far and away the most ancient of...
EARL RUSSELL'S DIVORCE BILL. LIBERAL MOVE IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
EARL RUSSELL'S DIVORCE &nbsp; BILL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; LIBERAL MOVE IN ENGLAND. The text of the Divorce Bill which Earl Russell has introduced into the House Lords has been issued, and it is of interest as indicating his views on the subject. Clause 1 proposes that either party to a marriage may pre- &nbsp; &nbsp; sent to the Court a petition for dissolu- tion of marrriage on the following &nbsp; grounds :—(a) That since the marriage the other party to the marriage has committed adultery or is so doing; (b) that since the marriage the other party to the marriage has been guilty of cruelty to the petitioner; (c) that the other party to the marriage is under- going penal servitude for a term of not less than three years; (d) that the other party to the marriage has during the year preceding the presentation of the petition, been found or certified to be of unsound mind under the Luna...

A PEERAGE ROMANCE. SON OF A SECRET MARRIAGE CLAIMS A DEVON TITLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
SON OF A SECRET MARRIAGE CLAIMS A DEVON TITLE. A pending claim to a British peer- &nbsp; age promises to reveal a story of real &nbsp; life which, for romantic interest, will rival many of the better known crea- tions of fiction. If certain statements can be sub- stantiatged, every element dear to the heart of the modern novelist is there— &nbsp; the nobleman who married "beneath him," the secrecy of the nuptials and the concealment of the bond that existed, the birth of an heir, the disap- pearance of the witnesses of the mar- riage, and the death of the parents, leaving behind the heir, who is now to make a bid for his rightful heritage. This is the point at which the &nbsp; &nbsp; thread of this romantic story is about to be taken up and pursued to the emd. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; For some considerable timo past a gentleman living at Plymouth has caused no inco...
NEW YORK POLICE SCANDALS. ALLEGED MURDER TO CONCEAL CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
NEW YORK POLICE SCANDALS ALLEGED MURDER TO CONCEAL CRIME. We extract tbe following from the &nbsp; "New York Herald," It is a most eloquent comment on the New York &nbsp; Police Force :— Whereas : 1. James McAuliffe, a citizen of New York, was found dying in the street on Sunday morning, Feb. 16 ; 2. Said James McAuliffe, when found, had been brutally beaten, his skull being fractured, his nose broken, and his body bearing other evidence of savage maltreatment ; 3.

THE FRENCH PREMIER. A CHARACTER SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
THE FRENCH PREMIER. &nbsp; A CHARACTER SKETCH. &nbsp; When still young, Pierre Marie- René-Ernest Waldeck-Rousseau took office under that thunderous Gambetti. For a few months only, it is true, but it was enough. From the mouth of the master he learnt the lesson which by its teachings leaves France to-day in a state of suppressed convulsion. For nearly two years he served in the same post—of Minister of the &nbsp; Interior, his position to-day—under Ferry, to his own and his country's advantage, but, let it be said, without &nbsp; &nbsp; clear indication of the man who was to come. Still in Parliament, but some- what wearied, it may be presumed, of &nbsp; &nbsp; the drudgery of public affaire, M. Waldeck-Rousseau retired, about 1889, into the lucrative position of the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; greatest barrister of his day. His fame in this part of his career is world wide, and it is at a great sacrifice of &...
DINNER AT DALTON'S. AN EPISODE OF EARLY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
DINNER AT DALTON'S. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; AN EPISODE OF EARLY DAYS BY PHARISEE. In the boom days of Coolgardie an enterprising individual named Dalton ran a hash and doss house in Ford- street. The building was made of bush timber, covered in with hessian, and was divided into three compart- ments—a dining room, a kitchen and a sleeping-kennel, which contained about a dozen bag stretchers. Nothing gave the long proprietor greater pleasure than to drag new-comers throughout his premixes and dilate upon the luxurious make-up of the establish- &nbsp; ment. "Them beds you see there can't be beat in the town," he explained to a now well-known M.L.C. who took his provender at Dalton's. "I'm thinking of goin' in for a cheaper line. These are too comfortable, and I can't get the bloke out early enough." The pros- pective legislator looked at them doubt- &nbsp; fully and asked what reforms were...
A CURIOUS LAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
A CURIOUS LAMP. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A curious lamp has been constructed &nbsp; by a professor. A glass globe placed &nbsp; on a metal stand is nearly filled with a liquid composed of luminous marine microbes. There are two tubes run- ning from the globe, and through these a supply of air can be sent to the interior when the light grows dull, the effect apparently being to revivify the microbes. The light from this lamp will last for several weeks without renewal of the illuminating medium. All your medicinal requirements, toilet &nbsp; requisites, patent medicines, etc., will be attended to promptly by ringing up tele- phone 84.

LOOTING LIQUIDATORS. EQUIVOCAL ESTATES ENTANGLEMENT. POCKETING PALTRY PERSONAL PERQUISITES. The Case of Hartle, Galt, Dunn and Co. Ltd. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
POCKETING PALTRY PERSONAL PERQUISITES. The Case of Hartle, Galt, Dunn and Co. Ltd. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It has become a recognised axiom in the commercial community that once an estate is handed over to the tender mercies of the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; liquidater or to assignees, that it melts like &nbsp; &nbsp; the baseless fabric of a vision, and the con- fiding creditors and shareholders (if a com- pany) may well despair of ever receiving anything like an adequate return from the realisable assets. It is simply a matter of &nbsp; book-keeping on the part oí the liquidator, and in the great majority of cases the estate is realised upon to suit the pockets not of tile creditors or shareholders, but of the un- scrupulous liquidator who sucks the whole &nbsp; orange and then hands the skin back. The &nbsp; public will understand us best by giving an &a...
GANGS AND GANGERS. SURLY SERVILITIES. BRIBING WITH WHISKY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
GANGS AND GANGERS SURLY SERVILITIES &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BRIBING WITH WHISKY If there is anything in the world calcu- &nbsp; lated to disgust ordinary humanity with the ideals of socialism, as understood in its poli- tical aspect, and implying public ownership and management through the Government of all avenues of human industry, it is the absolute disregard of -the common rules of &nbsp; henor and honesty exhibited by the average Governmental overseer. It is, of course, &nbsp; a necessity to have bodies of men directed by an overseer, or to put it in everyday work ing parlance, for gangs to have gangers. In an ideal state ot socialism the gangs, and gangers are mutually interested in serving the community ; their interests in no way clash, and they have no divided purposes ; and such words as "boss" and servant or master and slave have no meaning as expres- sive of their relationship to each other. Un fortunately this ...
LEAKE'S LOG-ROLLING. PERSECUTION OF POMBART. Sentence Before Trial. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
We have from time to time bad occasion . to calL'the atteu&îun of .tbe pu Wie io the cast of Mr. Ponibart, till recently clerk of th« Perth local Court. - That officer, to the l-eel of oar belief, has been a most conscientious and efficient Ferrant of the Government foi neatly five years, but his path, duriog th« last couple of years at least, has certainty not bee« bestrewn with rose ^peta's. It is à remarkable fact that in no other walk ol life does the Demon of Jealousy hold socîi undisputed sway as in the.

For the Farmers. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. &nbsp; To Poison Dingoes.—"Grazier" (Katanning) &nbsp; writes:—If not already tried, the following &nbsp; may be worth a test. Take a small blad- der (sheep's or pig's will do), and place therein a quantity of blood, with which a little strychnine has been mixed. Hang &nbsp; this on a low branch or twig over track which dogs are known to follow, the blad- der being suspended two or three feet from ground. A shy dingo may be &nbsp; tempted to take poison this way. An aniseed trail may be laid to the bait to ensure the particular track being taken, as occasion requires. A few strong dog traps set along a trail of this description might assist in reducing the number of dingoes, the traps to be hidden by a light covering of leaves or earth, and fenced round with a few saplings to pre- vent stock getting into them. &nbsp; &nbsp;
RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
RURAL TOPICS. Agricultural societies should unite and go in for the single judge system. The Kew South Wales experts are in- &nbsp; vestigating the cause of the spot hole disease in fruit. Properly managed the production of mush- rooms is a profitable business. The main thing is to have a cheap access to large quantities of horse manure. &nbsp; &nbsp; Coolgardie mushrooms fetch as high as 1s. 6d. in Perth. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To produce a ton of mushrooms requires 160 cartloads of manure. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; If a horse flinches while being shod remove &nbsp; the nail at once and disinfect the hole with 5 per cent. of carbolic acid. &nbsp; Experiments in England lately proved that pigs increased in weight better on raw maize than on scalded. They also looked healthier, and when hang up in the butcher's shop they had a better color. A thorough scarifying every three weeks om spring...
