FALLING IN LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 19 August 1893

FALLING IN, LOVE. Many a fond mother experiences great anxiety for her daughters and sons as they get into their later teens. She is afraid her son will fall in love with a pretty face before he is t'renty years old, and mar his fortune. Sh , is still more solicitous as to what may become of 'her daughter's susceptibility, because -she'is perchance of a romantic and dream ing nature. The anxious mother is the representative of a'lass which numbers thousands. :*-There are not:many things which cnuse more maternal solicitude than the fear that a son or daughter will be led while young into afoolish or disastrous marriage. Among the most prolific provocatives of such- youthful folly are idleness, lack of mental 'occupation, and the restlessness and dissatisfaction which are usually in duced by such stagnant conditions. Therefore, we say to any mother .who does oidt want her son to fall m love with a pretty face before the beard grows on his own, give him something .t<do:;'le...

THE CAPTAIN'S DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 19 August 1893

THE CA PTAIN -'S DAUGHTER. BY MARY KYLE DALLAS. Captain Kirk's daughter was the prettiest girl I ever saw. I'm an old man now, and you must excuse me for.saying that I have never seen anything like her since. She was introduced to me by the cap tain thus : " My daughter Kate, ilr Will Victor, I knew all your people when I was a boy, and I'm glad to see one of the family on board the Roaring Rusher." That was the name of the steamer, a Mississippi boat of the sort that ran then. You wouldn't take a load of potataes down on her now, but there she was, crammed with cotton, ham, and passengers, and considered a very fine boat indeed. And the saloon was very showy, with a big flowered Brussels carpet, looking glasses wherever they could be put, sofas and hosts of rockers, and a big black stewardess to wait on the ladies: Miss Kate was not in the sajoo1., however ; she preferred the deck. "Whenever I go up and down with pa," she said, "I keep outside all I can; and if you don't mind walki...

NATIONAL EXTRAV[?]GANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 19 August 1893

NATIONAL EXTRAV ýGANCE. Not the least unwelcome legacy of the boom is the record of national extravagances which the present taxpayers are asked to take up and Jiquidate. The appalling ex penditue, coupled with the revelations of extravagances in various State departments, go far to prove that the past Victorian Governments have been ac ua eit by a desire to see how much money Ihe:y could spend without counting the coat. What is tree of Victoria largely applies to all eLiu rarla-the great busin,-ss of maintaining a, rtte ;has. :. produced a lrger expenditure thhan revenue." The cardinal principle of private business is to secure as large a return as possible on, the outlay, but the majority of Arustralian'' Governments seem to have considered that prosperity was best assured by the reversal of:that principle. Anyway the individual is largely a gamoler-human nature as a whole likes to spendi money without considering 'whether or n6t it is gding beyond itsrevenue. This disregaid of en...

THE FIRST YEAR OF MARRIED LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 19 August 1893

THE FIRST YEAR .OF MARRIED LIFE. Many of the false ideas with which some young people begin their married life are d, rived from the Iropian picture of wedded b'iss frawn by well-meauing story iriters; hence, when the first novelty of the new relation has worn off, and the whiloni bride rand groom settle down into the routine of everyday life, there is almost.always some little feeling of disappointment, hardly even self-acknowledged, that creeps into the heart of. one or both. Of the two the wife is more likely to feel the slight shadow or chill. Her life has usually.been so much less practical andb hustling than her husband's that it has allowed her space fQr day dreams, and sbe.has an idealised conception of mar ried life. H er occupations in' her new honi?'keep her hands busy and allow her thoughts free play, and, unless she is 'exceptionally sunny in diapositior, she is prone to fall into the h bit of contrasting her anticipations of her mar ried life with what ihe now finds it...

" Don't you wish now that you I had married the banker, or white-goods man, or butcher, or whatever he was, instead " " Good heavens, no !" ejaculated Stella, "not if we had come to worse than this little room and an oil-stove. I belong to myself, at least, and-but I you were really a baby at the time, and have no idea what love means even yet. Jennie, to be married to any one I hated as I did Mr Kimberly Knatchball, i would drive one to suicide." " Well, poor, dear pa probably knew that he was going to fail then," said Jennie, "and tried to do the best by you, and Mr Knatchball was very easily rebuffed ; I guess he got an idea of it.
