MARIGOLD. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 27 January 1894

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER I. It ie too beautiful a scene to possess the germ of a tragedy. The girls clustered under the great oat are all young and beautiful. But the loveliest of all is Marigold, who is read ing aloud Taylor's ' Bedouin Sonz.' A handsome young man, who chances, unseen, upon the scene, declares it to he the prettiest he las ever witnessed. ' What a face — what a voice ! Good heavens ! ?could Love ever find a better exponent ?' he ejacu lates, his eager eyes fixed on the fair, dimpled face of the reader. I love theo— I love but thee, With a love that shall not die Till the sun prows cold, And the stars are old, And the leaves of the judgment book untold, she reads, and then pauses, murmuring dreamily : ' The most beautiful thing in life must be love.' All the pretty, eager young girls agree with her but one— dark-eyed Ida Seaton. 'Love must be a grisly spectre, standing ever 'between one and happiness, when it is given in -rain,' she declares, moodily. ' Marigold will never...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE VICTORIA BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 27 January 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE VICTOEIA BRIDGE. Sib, — The writer of the article re Victoria Bridge over Wallis Creek, though a newcomer in the district, evidently knows from experience that to build a bridge as suggested by him is not an im possibility, as I have Been just such such bridges as he alludes to in the old world, built, as he says, long ages before the introduction of iron as a build ing material, and still existing, over much worse torrents than at the site of the Victoria Bridge. I am aware that much care will be needed in securing a proper foundation for a masonry bridge, but the same holds good for an iron one : a proper seating will be needed for the piers or cylinders. Probably the money spent in the construction of those solid masonry floodgates was sufficient to have made a better job, and faulty work, design, and construc tion were to blame for the overthrow. We had just such an example in the large concrete blocks UBed at the approach of the Belmore Bridge during ...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 27 January 1894

ITEMS OP INTEREST. [Original and Selected.] A raid was made by detectives in Melboucne yes terday on five totalisator establishments in the city and Carlton. About 40 men altogether were ar rested. Yellow fever, as well as civil war, iB raging in Rio de Janeiro. There is not very much communi cation between Australia and Brazil, but nerhans there is quite enough to render the transmission of the epidemic to this country a very possible event. If once it gained a footing it might give a terrible account of itself. It has, at all events, more than once been brought across the Atlantic to parts of Spain which, in climatic conditions, are very simi lar to this portion of Australia. On at least two occasions there have been fearful epidemics of yellow fever at Barcelona. A daring highway robbery was perpetrated near Liverpool shortly after midnight on Wednesday. A man named Alexander Cameron, while proceeding from Liverpool to Moorebank, was set upon by two men, who seized him, and after...

' The most winning whist player I ever knew,'says the late Lord Lyfcton, ' was a good, but not a first rate, player, and, playing small stakes, though always the same stakes, he made a handsome yearly income. He took up whist as a profession instead of the bar, saying, ingenuously, ' Afc the bar, if I...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 27 January 1894

NEWCASTLE. As usual the holiday takes precedence as nearly all persons were busily engaged onjoying them selves, aud putting all business aside they seemed to be doing so in a thorough manner yesterday. The tramways in the earlier part of the day were crammed, and any one not afc the starting point or within a very short distance had to be contented with letting the trams pass, and then proceed on foot. The trains were not so well patronised. The beach was crowded as usual, and the tents and temporary stalls formed the scene of activity all day long. The Eisteddfod commenced at ten o'clock, and the apace is so limited that we can hardly do justice to such an important event. The theatre at the commencement did not appear to be uncomfortably occupied, but as the day progressed the numbers increased, and the heat caused muoh discomfort. With the general arrangement wo mast express admiration. The pieces were given in a highly creditable manner (and our experience is not solely local),...
