' M.itliurine had only permitted /.To/nine •to come and see him once ; and Ma.cliins —strange ns it. seemed—had not sought to break through t:liat:cruel decree, but appeared.to be completely in agreement on that subject The reason was that, in iiis sick dreams. 1'joehic had so often rupoatcd tlie name of Joanne, and with such despairing tenderness in the tones of his voice, that , the old pilot- feared he had discovered that iovc existed be i.tween tliem.' • Jeanne, whom lie saw. i every day at her aunt's, appeared, how i ever, firmly resolved to keep her pro i mise. .Slie bad allowed her hand to be ! ofllcially asked of Mathurin...
"Reserved Seats" in Railway Carriages. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 February 1898
" Reserved Seats" in Rail way Carriages. Complaints are sometimes made by travellers of the annoyahcc occasioned them ■by persons "Jumping " their seats when they leave a carriage.for refresh ments or other purposes. It has been recognised that there ,is no law govern ing the: matter, the question being one largely depending upon the observance of mutual courtesies between travellers, as it is always^ understood that, the occupation of a seat for a portion of a journey, by general usage gives a person the right to use it throughout. At the same time it is- impossible, practically, .to reserve seats, and ■ a . case which recently came before the Courts in England will therefore be of interest. • Transport, of 24th December, last, states that: " A case of no small im portance in; that the circumstances are such as have ofter suggested themselves to the minds of intrepid travellers who dare to leave their seats on a long journey, has . been decided by Judge Emden, at, Tunbridge Wells C...

How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 February 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local paper your general printing; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely : you can af ford to'give'the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. .... The newspaper man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free, no tices he-gives you and your town; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may come >\vhen a newspaper may live simply ..ivpory the revenue derived from the subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing.- Therefore ,if you waiit a good newspaper—one that will still help your, town —give it all. your printing. Further severe heat is predicted by the Queensland weather. Bureau. . "I...

Fortunately liberal and enterprising counsels prevailed, . aid, despite the severe aud inevit able drawbacks, due to the cause we have mentioned, the Show was more Siccessful than had been antici pated.

The Burnt out Gippslanders. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 February 1898
The Burnt out Gippslanders. It is with considerable pride that we reflect that the first town in New South Wales to send, tangible as S!stance to the burn-out Gippsland ers was Muswellbrook. The sum transmitted by Mr. E. 0. Brecht, our worthy Mayor—£50—was in it self a substantial donation, and would enable the Yictiorian Relief Committee to render assistance which, without it, would be out of their power. It is, moreover, only a first instalment, and it may be hoped that it may be followed by. another equally liberal. ' The rav ages of the bush fires have been' so terrible as to claim practical sym pathy, and sympathy unaccom panied by actual help, in cases where help is practicable, is of no avail. We all remember the story of the , good old quaker who joined a crowd which had gathered round a case of genuine and acute distress : " I pity him five shillings" he said, handing out the money, "How much does thee pity him ?" We feel sure that timely help given to so worthy an object a...
