Naturalist. BIG SNAKE STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 28 January 1901

Naturalist, BIG SNAKE STORIES. iM^KEABLY all the snakes you Bee in QlaDl? museums acd circus exhibitions 5H3K were sent to England from Africa or South America. The bea constrictor comes from Africa, and some very large specimens como from Brazil. It is very seldom that we can secure an anaconda. In both Africa and South America the snakes are captured by the natives, who very often, however, are afraid of them and do not undertake to secure them unless they are accompanied by an Americas ot European who will take the lead in the expedition. In Brazil the large snakes are some times captured with nets, which are thrown over them. The smaller ones are caught with a big stick, shaped at one end like a two-pronged pitchfork. The man approaches the snake soon after tho animal has partaken of a good ine&l and when ho feels heavy and sleepy. The fork is placed over the snake's head, and he is thus pinned to the ground. Then ha coils himself around the stick, and in that way is car...

Maloney had obtained from the local bench of magistrates a permit for music and dancing daring the Christmas and New Tear holidays. Young Australia dotes on waltz and polka. From the pseudo-aristocracy of the Metropolis to the real democracy of the rural township the taste for dancing; pervades all grades of society. The finery of the country lasses, although a little less elegant and ' modish, is very little inferior in cosfc uiwss to xne rauroom costumes ot city -? belles. It is on these occasions that Biddy and Maggie set off their coiffeurs to catch the admiration of the likely young bachelors of the district. The two lions at Maloney's ball on New Tear's Eve were Jack Cadd and his mate.

MODERN MOUNTAINEERING. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 28 January 1901

MODERN MOUNTAINEERING. Some two thousand tourists have made the grand ascent of Mont Blanc since the brave Bahnat led the way a century and a half ago. One is filled with admiration of the young Chamouni peasant who first had the courage to penetrate this tumbled world of eternal snow and ice. A passion for the mountains, a devouring ambition to be the first man to tread the virgin summit, lea nun onwaras. lie was nis own guide, he had not even a comrade when he reached the Grand Plateau. Down below in Chamouni he knew they were jeering at his efforts. Ho was ill clad, with only something longer than a walking-stick to help him up. Yon have only to stand by the striking monument which Chamouni has erected in his honour, and watch the modem moun taineer starting off for the summit, to realise the daring of the man. You will see the pallid tourist just from Piccadilly marching between two bronzed and stalwart guides, laden with ropes, ice-axes, wraps, and ruck-sacks, which probably co...

Ladies' Column. ROYAL MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 28 January 1901

Ladies' Column. ROYAL, MARRIAGES. .?WnlKANY people have been surprised' iBelP that the Czar so fully approved 'JKjjt °f '10 marriage of young King Alexander of Servia with a lady who was not only not Royal, but not even of noble deacent. The fact was that this marriage en tirely upset a scheme which would have boen a serious blow to the power of Russia in the Balkans. Lx-Iving Milan of Servia had long been trying to induce his son to make a match with tho Princess Alexandra of Schaura burg-Lippe, who was to have a dowry of jMO.000. Alexander, as his share of the bargain, was to pledge the subordination of his country to Austria and Germany. But the young King Bcorned the idea of such schemes, threw over the moneyed bride, and bravely married the woman he loved. The New Qitben op Skevia. ? Madame Draga Maschin, tho new Queen of Servia, is said to be a most fascinating woman. She was at one time lady-in-waiting to Queen Nathalie, the young King's mother.

Ways of Living. A LITTLE CITY PIRATE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 28 January 1901

Ways of Living, A LITI'LE CITY PIRATE. S1VHERE aro few Saturday nights of Ji1a2 my lifethat I do not join tho busy 5^2? throng in Argyle Stroot and Trongato. There is a some thing in tho jostling, leisurely, happy, laughing, off-tho-ohaiu prolo tarianism that charms and interests me, and which not even their nicotine and liquor-laden breath can dissipate. True, not a few you meet are more or less 'fou',' but nevertheless it is the very happygo lueky swarm of humanity, along with other oognate swarms in similar contres of population, that go to make up that great outstanding unrivalled entity, the British People, whose labour and pluck has built up the British Empire. I some times think that were it not for the de grading influence of whisky, those swarming multitudes of toiling men and women might by the wisa exercise of the ' [ franchise — imperial and municipal — j raise Ufa in our great cities and towns to la inu-b higi-r piano than even the most aruent of reforijiors. li.ivrt dr...

Sketcher. MILITARY SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 28 January 1901

Sketcher. MILITARY SECEETS. fT may Beem strange to the averago Briton that there are in England at the present moment some hundreds of spies belonging to foreign countries all in receipt ot large salaries, in return for which they find out as many of our mili tary secrets as possible, and promptly inform their Governments of what they discover. Now, it takes a tolerably Bharp man to be able to penetrate any of fch« Eserflta that rha War Office holds, hut it has been done before now. The foreign spy finds two great difficulties besetting him. He has not only to find out such secret information, but to do so in a manner that will not cause him to be suspected, Some years ago tho Admiralty suspected that information regarding somo new warships that were being built was being transmitted to a foreign Power. No proof was forthcoming, but Buch a deep-rooted suspicion had taken hold or the authorities that it amounted almost to proof. Soon the police discovered that if such a thing was goi...

Humour. That Settled It. — Jaggers : 'So he married tho widow ! I thought he hod his eye on the daughter.' Waggles : ' So he had, but the widow had her eye on him.' Johnny (sobbing) : 'Does it re-ally h-h-hurt you to whip me, mamma P' Ma : ' Yes, my son, very mueh more than 'it hurts you.' Johnny (drying his eyes) : I'm so glad.' A little boy was asked the other day what was meant by sins of omission. He astutely replied, without any hesitation, 'Those we have forgotten to commit.' This almost equals the little girl's de finition of faith as ' believing something wo know iBn't truo.' Henry—1 Yes, I can read Macpherson like a book.' James (who knows Mac pherson)— ? Like a book in the Fiji dialect, I suppose.' Little Freddie watched the stars as they came out by one. ?Look mamma,' he cried, 'the angels are lighting their bicyle lamps.'

WRINKLES. Bent Whalebones can be straightened after they havo been soaked in cold water for some hours. After being dried they will be as good as ever again. To Wash Bedsteads is highly necessary, especially in town, every now and then. Every part should be sponged carefully with very hot alum and water. Electric Bells.— If tho electric beU will not ring, it probably is because moisture is needed. Shake up the electric iars, and if that does not work a cure,' put more water into them.

XFKHE death, at New York, at the ago JW'Ib of 58, of Mr. Marcus Daly, tho (QKvs Copper King of Montana, brings to to an end one of the most re markable feuds in the history of the United States. Two millionaires Marcus Daly and William A. Clark owned between them practically the whole of Montana, one of the Western states of America. The feud between the two mon was carried on for years, and each squandered money with a lavish hand if he saw an opportunity of thwart ing the designs or ambitions of his rival.

Everyone, even to the judges on the bench, was a Daly or a Clark man. Both Daly and Clark called themselves Democrats, but political principles trouhLed them very little. Each wished to have solo control of the State for his own private purposes. How the feud...

The Painted-hall is not guarded at night, and on Saturday last it was locked up as usual by the custodians, who afterwards de posited the keys in the police office. On Sunday morning it was found that the place had been entered by thieves. They had either hidden themselves in the hall before it was locked up on Saturday evening, or had obtained access through a small window adjoining a rain pipe. The principal case of re...
