FREAKS OF ABSENT-MINDED MECHANICS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
FREAKS OF ABSENT-MINDED MECHANICS. The absent-minded mechanic seldom, ii ever, appears in print, notwithstanding "there is a great many of him. We oftenrend accounts of the peculiari ties of absent-minded individuals in other pursuits and professions, but somehow in reference to the mechanic nearly everyone seems to have kept silent. When we first entered a machine shop as an apprentice, the first specimen of absent-mindedness that we remember '-as that of a workman who took down the pump-valves on a locomotive to grind them in. This individual had fre quently performed the same task previous to that withoun: any trouble, but somehow he put in the upper valve of the pump up side down. The locomotive went out, and while running at a high rate of speed the water was turned on, when a loud report an nounced the fact to the engineer that he was minus one pump, it having been split from end to end by the enormous pressure generated within it. On one occasion we took a locomotive out of t...

HEAD-DRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
HEAD-DRESSES. The turban and the fez are the favourite head coverings throughout the Mohamedan world; but their arrangement and ornamen tation vary infinitely, from the simple piece of linen orcotton which the common Arab winds round his head, to the richly embroi dered and jewelled silken scarf which con stitutes the head-dress of the sheikh or pasha. In former times fez and turban were worn together, but recently the fez has become the official head covering of the regular Turkish army, and is now almost universally adopted by civilians aA well. Many tribes, roaming or settled in parts more or less distant from the great towns of the Turkish empire, have stuck to the ortho dox turban. This is principally the case with the Arabs of the desert, and the Moor ish inhabitants of the northern coast bf Africa adjoining the Mediterranean. In Tripoli, Tunis, Algeria, and Morocco the turban reigns supreme, and most elabo rately ornamented specimens are met with, especially amonz;t the vomen...

THE SUMMER SUN IS WANING The days are getting shorter; The nights are dark and chill;&lt; A mist is on the water; " A haze is on the hill; I hear the winds complaining : The summer sun is waning. The summer sun is waning I And this is what it means; It's useless longer feigning To live within the "teens " My youth is disappearing The winter days are nearing. he winter days are nearing; The leaves are turning brown; The wind that's now careering Will beat the bravest down; The birds have ceased their singing, And some are homeward winging, The swallows, homeward winging, Can see the end's at hand; The pendulum is swinging Of sorrow through the land ; I hear the winds complaining: " The summer sun is waning."
PATCHED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
PATCHED. There was a playful smile about his face, and an atmosphere of recently absorbed spirits about his person as he skipped into a failor's shop. "Do you sell patches here ?" he inquiredin airy tones. "Well, we don't often find people want ing to buy patches," replied the tailor; " but of course we'll sell them to you." "Good," said the customer; " I want a nice little flower-garden patch, a potato patch, and- " But he didn't finish. The tailor's boot sought the patched part of the customer's pants, and made a rose patch of it with des patch.

A FREAK OF FORTUNE. Close upon forty years ago Sir William Fortesque wooed and wcn a beautiful girl named Ellen Murray, the only daughter of a retired officer of the Royal Navy, then living at Hull. Ten years later, Sir William hav ing got rid of money, lands, houses, and even his good name at the gaming-table, husband and wife gathered the remnants of what was once a large estate, and proceeded to New York.

OPENING THE GATE FOR PAPA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
OPENING THE GATE FOR PAPA. Hurrying out to the gateway, Go two little pattering feet; Eagerly out through the palings Peer two little eyes bright and sweet. A footstep as eager is answering The sweet eyes that patiently wait, And papa is kissing and blessing The baby that opens the gate. And every day a1 the long Summer, At noon-time and evening late, The little one's watching for papa, Waiting to open the gate. And now the bright summer is ended, And Autumn's gay mantle unrolled; The marble leaves wooing the breezes, Are gorgeous in crimson and gold. At noonday the face at the gateway Is flushed with the feverish glow, At night the bright head on the pillow Is tossing in pain to and fro. The father kneels down in his anguish And stifles the sobs with a groan; He knows that his idol is going Going out in the midnight alone. He buries his face in the pillow, Close, close to the fast failing breath; A little arm clasps his neck closely, A voice growing husky in death. Says pleadinoly,...

LEAD POISONING IN DRESS MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
LEAD POISONING IN DRESS MAKING. Lead poisoning is often produced in an unsuspected manner. The occupation of dress-making might be regarded as one likely to be exempt from it; yet a dress anaker admitted into Leeds Disiensary was [ound to have a distinct blue line on her gums, with simultaneous symptoms, such as a furred tongue, inflammation of cthe lips, ~nd general debility-all signs pointing to the probability of poisoning by lead. The .,hvsician in attendance for some time Sailed to discover the source of the leadpsi soning, and was beginning to think the blue line had been caused in some other was, when he accidentally learned from a mer chant that silken tbread, being sold by weight, and not by length, is sometimes adulterated with sugar cf lead. He then questioned the patirn;, and she informed him that it had been a commron practice with her, when at work, to hold silk, as well as other kinds of thread, in her mouth, and that she had done this scre readily with silk, inasmuch...
Fun and Fancy. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
Fun and Fancy.... A cuff on the wrist is worth -tw 09 t-he ear. In a girl's room all roads lead tc the look ing glass. 'Tis trango that we should have fresh eggs as the resl-t of a fowl habit. A printer and a man who car's lobsters both follow the art preservative. A baldheaded man says his heir reminds him ai a fool and his money, because it is soon parted. Some unscrupulous person has defined a Chinese policeman as an "Asiati.: collarer." o" flow did you like the sermon to-day t" " Well, it was such a nod discourse, that I went to sleep."
