Love and Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
Love and Dinner. " Everything is possible to a man why has dinel well,' said my friend, Sam Westbrook, in his sententibus way. We had just feastel at toe Maison Doree, in Swanston-street, in the great hall of the Earl of Zetland H,,teL Jules Gandiol, rarest of clcefe, presides over the kitchen. Need I say that we hail dined well. "Yes, Sir, if we only look at the' matter with a practical, yet philosophi cal eye, we shall find that much of a man's success or failure is attributable to his dinner. Breakfast does not count, because that should always be a light meal. But dinner is a serious matter. It is a business; a function that demands and deserves deep con sideration. Heaven knows I am neither a gourmet nor gourmand, bat I give a great deal of attention to my dinner. Confess, now, that you feel at peace with the world. That Julienne soup was a work of art, those cutlets were divine, what could be better than that entreh? And the salad-and yet all this was so simple. That is fine a...
Jack Cohen and the Mummy. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
Jack JCohen and the Mummy. He was vastly interested in the mummy. Not that he is given to scientific speculation, or that Egyptology shares with bookmaking in his affections. Bat .Jack, practical as he may be, is not an idealist As he gazed long and earnestly at that dried-up remnant of what was o.Iue a human creature, fall of life and vigour. he forgot, for the time, the approaching carnival, and suffered his imagination to carry him from the stern actualities of the odds to tthe days when that withered parchment, per chance, was a plunger, or skinned the la u', at a race-meeting on the banks of the Nile. C gitating thus, he was suddenly startled by hearing his own name mea tinel. ' Jack,' said a voice s.veet ani musical, anol sounding as though far away. '.J ek.' ' Eh,' exclaimed the bookmaker, 'What?' -Tack.' dear Jack.' MIr. Cohen looked round stealthily; no one was near, yet the voice was a substantial fact-a woman's voice, too. It was extraordinary. 'Don't you rearember me, Ja...
SCIENTIFIC. MAKING INVISIBLE THREADS FROM ROCK CRYSTALS [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
SCIENTIFIC, [AXING ThWISIBLE THREAD)S FROM ROCK CRYSTALS lfr. C. V. Boys, F.B.S., has recently baen describing the immovements he has made in the suspending fires used in the construction of the most ea-ct scientific apparatus. In same inmesstigaons Mr. lo,-s required some thing very much superior to anything then existing, and this led him ultimately to the discovery of a way of making fibres by melt ing rock crystal in an cxyhydrogen jet, oraw ing it into rods, and then dr-aing these rods into the finest fibres by at-oching them to the tail of an arrow, which is shot from a cross-bow as soon as the rod is again melted. He made one of these threads less than one 10,000th part of an inch in diameter, and declares he could make them of any sire down in the limit of microscopic vision. The ends of these are the finest things known to exist, because it is impossible to trace them ap to the end with a microscope. They are certainly not more than one-millionth of an inch in diameter, and...

Nature's Mirror. THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
Nature's Mirror. BY " REFLECTOR." THEATRE ROYAL. The "Jack Sheppard" bill is as lengthy as a longiroster or a Chancery Lane law purveyor's. The most phlegmatic mallee farmer, laboring under the depression of bad seasons and rabbits has become spor tive and frolicsome under the witchery of Maggie Moore and her shining constel lation of satellites. The dancing, sing ing and acting of the dainty and versatile Maggie is a revelation. Two and three quarters, borrovedl !rom Old0 Father Time, passes qui,:ker at the 1Royal than a dead head into a showv, or a spook, when grabbed at, into dematerialisation. And fancy, the offer is open ev'en unto the poor antl weary with the humble but use- ful" tanner."

LOVELY SUNBEAMS.—A SONG OF SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
LOVELY SUNBEAMS.-A 'SO?G OF SUMMER. o lovely sunbeame through the meadows dancing On golden pinions all the livelong day, Kiasing young leaves, on crystal streamlets glancing, Changing to living gold their silver spray; Wee amorous elves, coquetting with the roses, .Wooing the daisy in her grassybed, Till the shy flower unconsciously uncloses Her dew-gemmed leaves, and blushes rosy red. O lovely sunbeams, like blest angels gliding Through courts of squalor, sickness, want and gloom, Telling of clouds like golden chariots riding, Proudly majestic o'er a world of bloom; Of winding lanes, and milk-white home steads peeping Like modestvirgins from secluded bowers; Of zhallow poo!s, and baby streamletsleaping In giddy gladness 'neath down-drooping flowers. On the poor children playing in the gutter, Nursed amid hardship, bitter tears, and sighs, Kissing their rags, like loving friends ye flutter, Warming their limbs and sparkling in their eyes, When from the dust they raise their beaming...
