THE MAN WHO ARGUES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

THE MAN WHO ARGUES. Is there anything on the face of the earth more disagreeable than the man who argues ? A thief and a liar can be endured, because one cannot be perpetually lying or stealing; but the man who was born with the spirit of argument in his composition follows the business of arguing continually. You cannot risk saying that the grass is green, or a rat's tail is longer than a mouse's without being contradicted and challenged to Prove your statement. He will discuss the subject pro and con, to show-you that you are in error, and if you don't see it he will insinuate that some folks are intellectually blind, and then your temper will rise, and his Ilkewise, and you will ~ay something hot, and so' will he, and there will be trouble in the camp. When it domes to' married life, it is safe to say that two-thirds of the divorces are caused by argument. Phople who do not argue seldom appear in the divorce courts. It has been said over and over again that no two persons can be ...

GOOD RULES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

GOOD RULES. When engaging a servant be careful to ex plain her work to her, and let her understand that that w:ork must be done in your way, and not in the'way of any former mistress she may have had, and this explanation must be made so that it shall not reflect upon the routine of any other household. Try and arrange the housework so that each servant may have an opportunity to attend church on Sunday. When your servants do well encourage them to do better by a few words of praise. Do not allow them to have visitors until after certain hours in the evening. Give your orders for the day to the cook as early in the morning as possible. Insist upon being informed when any thing is broken or lost. See that the chambermaid wears a clean apron while making the beds, and that she knocks at the bedroomndoors before enter ing. Order the maid who opens the door not to leave visitors standing in the hall, nor to give parcels to strangers- without previous in struction. When your reprove, do ...

WISDOM OF WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

WISDOM OF WIVES. A man's wife often knows more than he knows about a great many things, and while he need not lower himself in her estimation by admitting her mental superiority, it is sometimes well for him to silently recognise her superior intelligence and profit by it. If he is a wise man he will not be too ready to come into accord with the opinions of his wife, but will affect a great deal of wisdom of his own, even though he knows that he has none. It never increases a wife's respect for a husband to know that he is inferior in any thing;. and it certainly does not increase her respect or affection to have him intimate by word or lbok that she does not know any thing at all.' The judgment of the average woman re garding the disbursement of money is often better than that of the average man. It is often better, when it comes' to spending money for domestic purposes. It takes a 'shrewd shopkeeper :or market man to get ahead of the average woman, while a marketman who is new to ...

YOUNG WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

YOUNG WIVES. To the thoughtless young girl who has been in the habit of choosing her associates at her own sweet will, and coming and going unchecked and without question, the restraint placed upon her by a husband is often irksome. She has neglected to learn that a deter mination to accommodate one's self, to one's company, is in no case Fo indispensable as in wedded life. While Fingle, we may go where we list; if persons annoy us, we may avoid them; if we dislike one locality we may remove to another. Not so after we are married; we cannot then change our companions; the conice does not depend on ourselves alone ; there is another to be consulted, to whose wishes we must, to a certain extent, sacrifice our own, and when this is known to be' the case, how absurd to make matters worse by opposition and resistance ! Let those who have entered the matri monial pale not be daunted at finding them selves somewhat mistaken in the temper and disposition of each other ; in the common cours...

AN IDLE WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

AN IDLE WOMAN. There is no greater terror to the busy woman than the visits of her idle sister. The latter is so situated that she has nothing to do from the time her husband leaves for his office in the morning until his return at night, and she therefore de termines to put in some of the time that hangs so heavily on her hands by visiting a friend who, it is to be regretted. cannot drop all her duties and give herself up to the pleasure of entertaining every casual visitor. As her home or room is set in order by ten o'clock, the idle party is very much amazed when she walks into her friend's house to find that individual either en gaged in the kitchen or going about pick ing up here and there, setting things to rights after the little folks have left for schooL. The first time Mrs Idler calls,the house keeper takes her hands out of the dough, and, assuming a sweet smile, enters the room where the visitor awaits her. As one hour goes by and there is no sug gestion of departure in t...

MODERN PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

MODERN PROGRESS. '---------- The nineteenth century has already seen the production of many scientific inventiona which are the outcome and demands of the age, suchas fl.,ating palaces, great engineering feats, colossal structures, electric motors, and numberless contzivances which tend to make the old fashioned d'ys we read of s',m.what of a laughing stock to us of the present day; so that common sense ridicules the conser 'ative idea, and the theory held by some (with due respect to archeilogists) even now. that what was good enough for their fore fathers is still good enough fir them. While staying a day or two in Melbourne (en route for London on a holiday), I had an- oppor tunity of witnessing the go-ahead character of ihe city man, and some of the institutions among-' which I sauntered, in order to b, prepared to answer any questions which might fe put to mebhy the Londoner, who is from all accounts, sally ignorant of the com mercial importance of Melbourne and the sntipoles i...

LOST! [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

S 'L-OST1 The keeper of the Eddystone light-house recently discovered a bottle contaiing the following pathetic sentences, the last ex pressions of a small band of ship-wrecked men : " We have been living upon a raft for ten days, and for. more than half of the time without water. We have hoped against hope, and now are ready and waiting for death. Anything is better than this agony. We cannot endure it more than a few hours longer.. Yesterday we saw. a vessel and tbought iwe were safe, but it passed on with out seeing us. To-day we have abandoned Such a death, away from friends and in such agony, is terrible. To look into the cannon's month requires bravery, but to face death coming slowly but surely needs only despair. There is no hope." The only difference between the experience of these men and thousands of others on land to-day is that the shipwrecked men realised their fate while the others do not. They are in just as certain danger, but are wholly unconscious of it. They are ...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

THE LADIES' COLUMN. 'There are many ways of cutting the new skirt,, but they all have the same end in view .-a- small top and a wide bottom, with a very round effect, on the model of the um brella. .... As now being made at. Paris, Ithis sirt, when doubled and laid flat has the lines of back and front at right angles, and the edge describes a quarter circle, or rather a quarter ellipse, since the back issomewhat lobnger than the front. The angle at the middle of this quadrant is hollowed out for the waist. When the cloth is wide enough, its width is taken for the length of the skirt in front, and there is a seam only in the back. This back seam is straight, and the cloth falls diagonally only on the sides. When the cloth is narrow many gores are. used. An approved pattern for narrow cloth is in seven pieces ; a front slightly gored,land three pieces on each side, leaving a gored seam to come in the back. Each piece is gored on both sides, but the side turned toward the front is very...

A COMPLAINING WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

A COMPLAINING WIFE. The man who is tied to her is to pitied. A complaining wife is like a northeast rainstorm in the month of October, there is no prospect of fair weather, and' no prospect of rain, and no prospect of any thing in particular. While her husband is at his business she is thinking over her grievances. She is cocked and primed with them by the time he gets home, and if he is tired, and cross, and hungry, as men often are when they come home at night, then there is anything but a pleasant time of it.' She tells him all about how the grocer disappointed her, and how the laundry woman brought home the shirts with the buttons all off, and the hems washed to tatters; and how Sammy fell dowstairs, and " busted " the knee of his trousers, and bumped his forehead, and how that beef he sent home for sirloin was nothing but round steak, and how soap has gone up, and coal, too, and flour, and Mary Ann wanting new shoes to go to Sunday-school in, and the poor child will degenerate ...

GRAVE AND GAY. Said she, with a supercilious air, " Give me a postage stamp." It was given to her, and, as she handed out the change, she said, looking disdainfully at the assistant.

Oh, what shall we do P' John Henry-" Hush-sh-h, I hear him; he's rumaging in the pantry now. Keep perfectly quiet, and he may eat some of that pie you made yesterday. Then we'll have him."

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 26 August 1893

ODDS AND ENDS. A solution of chloride of zinc made by dissolving zinc to saturation in muriatic acid is generally used for soldering brass. The addition of a little sal-ammoniae im proves this. The skins of the stuffed birds used for trimming hats or bonnets are sometimes saturated with arsenic. This is liable to get into the eyes and throat of the wearer, and inflame both. The best time for planting trees and shrubs is when they are dormant--that is, after they have made their season's growth and before they have begun to start afresh. Deciduous trees speak for themselves; when their leaves have fallen, they may be said to be at rest. Dr Blanche states in the Bulletin Th.'ra peutiquc that in chronic and simple bron chitis petroleum in teaspoontul doses before meals produces satisfactory results. In phthisis the experiments have not yet been long enough continued to ascertain whether the results are permanently bene ficial, but it diminishes the expectoration, which also loses its p...
