Why Count Fosco was Fat. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

Why Count Tosco was Pat. Among themost sinceremourners of Charles Eeade was Wilkie Collins j they were great friends ; each admired the work of the other. Collins lived in Gloucester Place. Most of you will remember his story of ' The Moonstone,' and some of you the play. I saw him once or twice while he was adapt ing the story to the stage ; my first thought went to the effectiveness of the mysterious Indian guar dians of the stone ; but the author smiled as I talked of them. 'No,' he said, 'I shall cut out the Indians. I can only see them on the stage as I three Christy MinstrelB.' I pleaded for at Ipncfc nm to represent the romance of the story. 'No,' he said ; 'tho gallery would call upon him for a song.' * The Moonstone ' was not a success on the stage ; and I think Mr. Reade was more disappointed at this than tho author himself. Collins never left a novel onee he had begun to write; ho would work all day, and sometimes far into the night, without any other cxercise than trampi...

Literary News, Notes, etc. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

Literary ISFews, l^otes, etc. I Mr. John Cordy Joallreson in his Recollections says that he was suspected by Thackeray— and suffered accordingly — to have written the sharp criticism of ' The story of Elizabeth,' by Miss Taackeray, which appeared in the Athenaium. The rual author was Miss Geraldine Jewsbury, of whom he draws this pretty portrait In form, presence, fur, charm of manner, music of voice, and conver sational address, I have never seen Geraldine JewB bury's equal. Light, lissom, spirilucllc, her tall, slight figure was singularly graceful. Had it not been for her complexion, which was deficient in brightness and transparency, she would have been remembered for her beauty as well as her wit. A wo-nan or letters, living chieHy— it not altogether— at the point of her pen, she had need to be mind ful of the petty financial economies, but iu one direction she rea - self-indulgent in her personal ex penditure.

Navigation in a Canon. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

Navigation in a Canon. I In 'Life at Puget Sound' there is a description of an exciting and dangerous attempt at navigation in a canon on the upper Columbia. The most remarkable part of the river, the writer says, is where it is compressed to one-sixth of its width in passing through a mountain gorge three-quarters of a mile loDg. The current is so strong there that it takes from four to six hours for the steamer to struggle up against it, and only one minute fnv it t-n fnmn dnmn. lVfp.n who have nSBBed down through it in small boats, Bay that it is as if one were shot from the mouth of a can non. When we reached this ennon our real difficulties began. We attempted to enter it in the afternoon, but met with an accident which delayed us until the next morning. Meanwhile the river began to rise. We waited twelve days in the woods for it to subside. Everybody grew very impatient, and at length on6 night the captain said he would try it the next morning, although he had never before bee...

How He Waited a Minute She was one of these young women who are ever ready when called for, and the young man who was to take her to the theatre knew it. She didn't live far from the theatre, and was slower than usual. ' I'll be down in a minute,' she Balled to him from the head of the stairs. ' It's timo we were there,' he replied, and as she sung out ' all right,' he walked out of the house and to the theatre. When the first act closed he hurried back. When he had been seated a minute or two sbe came down stairs all in a flutter ile was smiling all over Bind happy as a clam.

True Physical Best. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

True Physical Best. There is an old story of an Indian and a ' pale face,' who, after a long day's journey, lay down in a deserted cabin at nightfall to rest. The Indian, wrapping himself in his blanket, stretched himself on the floor of the cabin, with his feet to the fire, and was soon asleep. His companion, meantime, has espied a feather-bed in another room, and con gratulating himself on his discovery, jumped in and was also soon in a doze. With the first rays of the morning light the Indian rose refreshed, and ready for the day's task. He went to arouse his comrade, when lo ! he found him dead from the exhaustion the previous day. uuxurious repose is never irue pnysictu rest. To enjoy that blessing to its fullest extent, free dom from restraint must be allowed every part o£ the body. A firm surface is required — one that will tend to keep the body stretched out at full length, that the lungs and heart may feel no sense of restriction by compression of the chest-walls, and that ...
