HOW SHAM JEWELLERY IS MANUFACTURED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
HOW SHAM JEWELLERY IS MANUFACTURED. There is, perhaps, no other trade or profession that gives greater facilities for common deception and fraud than the cheap jewellery trade. Gorgeous brooches and earrings, bought and sold as gold, often prove to be honest brass, or what istechnically known as " compo" jewellery-the cheapest of all articles. "Compo" jeweliery is made of a va riety of metals that look well when finished bright, the brilliancy of which colour is claimed by some as a secret. A gaudy shawl brooch, retailed at a shil ling, probably cost the vendor sixpence, and was originally produced for a frac tion above a penny ! Cheap earrings, pins, lockets, bracelets, rings, and other trinkets, sold by the noisy cheap jack, are made chiefly of this material, though to the eyes of his admiring audience they look equal to the Crown jewels at least. The commonness and cheapness of these articles is really astonishing. A few years ago, a little trinket, the shape of a volume, with hi...
A CURIOUS KIND OF PRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
A CURious iKND OF' PRIDE;. Dr. Jessop, in his book, "Trials of. Country Parson," tells a great many good stories, all of them based on his own ex- periences, none of which are better than those which illustrate the curious kind of pride with which country people of the labouring class appear to regard their matrimonial exploits. One old fellow is reported as having said with compla cency, "You didn't think, Miss, as I'd had five wives, now, did you? Ah, but I have though--leastwise, I buried five on 'em in the churchyard, that I did and tree on 'em was bewties !" On another occasion, the parson suggested to a much-married woman, " Don't you mix up your husbands now and then, Mrs. Page, when you talk about them ?' " Well, to tell you the truth, sir, I really du," she said; "but my third husband, bhe was a man ! I don't mix him uo. He got killed, fighting-you've heard tell o' that, I make no doubt. The others warn't nothing to him. He'd ha mixed them up, quick ennugh, if they'd inter ...
VICTOIRE, THE TRUMPETER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
VICTOIRE, THE TRUMPETER. (From the Paris "Echo.") -4~-- HE was under an unlucky star, this handsome trumpeter, this Jean Blouart, as he called himself, or Victoire, as his comrades called him. No one could sound the reveillU as loud, as long, or as joyously as he could sound it, and they were always able to recognise him, no matter how great the distance, by his alert and decided step. They had been fighting all day long. Already the sun was low upon the horizon, and still they battled, for both sides had sworn to conquer and no one dreamed of recoiling. And the trumpet rolled and cried its stirring music, sending its in spiriting notes into the very heart of the .:meie, mingling its voice with the fracas of the cannon, the screaming of the balls and the shouts and groans of the com batants. Jean Blouart advances always, drag ging at his heels the suldiers drunk with carnage and grimed with powder. They I'attled now hand to hand and body to ad y, Victoire, as if determined to justif...

Y-'; ANKEE YARNS. CORONERS' JURIES' VERDICTS A reporter went through the inquests returned during the year, anidfound some very unique examples of "English as she is wrote.

TAKEN I. Tramp (enteri) : " I say, could you let me have a glass of 30ilk7 I have no coin with ae, but I'll give you two stamps ifthat'll do.' Proprietor of milk sh-p (to get rid of him pours out the milk): "All right, here's your milk-" Tramp drinks it,smacks his iips,stamps twice on the flor, and walks towards the door. The milk dealer shouts to him to come back. Tramp returns. S"What doyou want?" "My stamps, of course." "Didn't I give them to you." "No; of course you didn't.u" "Well, here they are again." (Stamps twice more.) "Ah, Isee; ha ha! ell, that's a pretty good joke, but I'll tell you what I'l do; I'll give you a penny to try that on that man across the street." " Why he just gave me twopence to try it on you. The prosperity of a stylish dressmaker is an example of the survival of tha fit _ .
SOMERSETSHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
SUM n ERETSHIlE.: . Somersetshire cannot compare with its adjoining 'enn D vJon-.1: ?for; ulc tures.ue-scener. but some of the towns are most interesting on accaount of their historic asica:ntions: It would take too long to give a deserip. tion of many of toe townm in one paper, so we will take ?athi and Glasto'lbury. _ Bath, or The City of Waters, as it is commonly called, on aceonnt of its hot wells, which are of such benefit to invalids, is built in an amphitheatre of-hills. The Bathonians tell us that a. certain British prince, having Leprosy, was banashed from home and friends. . He had a hut near the river Avon. Some cattle in the visinity had the same disease, and the princes noticed .how from time to time they would dip themselves in whatseemed like a pond of water, and were in time cared of their Leprosy. He at once felt assured that there must be some efficacy in the waters, and tried the same remedy with the same result. On returning to his home, the King decided it would...
THE BUSHMAN IN THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
THE BUSHMAN IN THE CITY, -49---. I had written him a letter which I had, for want of better - - Knowledge, sent to where I met him, down the Lachlan, years ago. He was shearing when I knew him, so i sent the letter to hin, Just "on spec," addressed as toilows " Clancy of ' The Overflow. " And an answer came, directed in writing unexpected. (Which I think the same was written with a thumb nail dipped in tar) ; 'Twas his shearing mate who wrote it, and verbatim I will quote it : " Clancy's gone to Queensland drovin', and we don't know where he are." In my wild erratic fancy,visions came to me of Clancy Gone a-droving "down the Cooper,' where the Western drovers go. As the flocks are slowly stringing,Clancy rides behind them singing, For the drover's life has pleasures that the townsfolk never know. And the bush hath friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars. And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extende...

THE- HOUSE F?F BARING. (Frots she I:iaslo.) " There are six Great Powers in Europe," said the Duo de licheli?n in 1818; "Eng land, France, Rus:;ia, Austria, Prussia, and Baring Brothers." Threescore yeas as:d twelve passed, and of the Duo's G.eat Powers the sixth and last was no longer worthy to be counted in the nnumber. A sudden inancial earthquake rent to the foundatiors toe famous house in Bishorsgate Street, and :t was saved from a terrible cnd disastrous ccllapse only by the Bank of Ingland, the Joist Stock Banks, and the City generally, rushing forward to but tressit up.

HOW THEY SAY GOOD NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
ROW THEY SAY GOOD NIGHT. The? have had a long evening togethe -three whole hours-but it doesn't seem more than five minutes to them. Still the ineorable clock is announcing .the hour of eleven in the most forcible and uncom promising manner. He knows that he ought io go, because he must be up early in the morning. She fully realises that his immediate departure is necessary, for has not hter father threatened to come down aid "give that young Simpkins a niece of his mind if he don't leave by eleven o'clock in the future? They both understand that the fatal hour has come, yet hot they hate to depart ! " Well, I suppose I must be going," he says with a long, regretful sigh. "Yes; I suppose you must," she rejoins. Then they gaze into each other's eyes; then she pillows her head upon his bosom; then their eyes meet, and he mentally swears that if he can get his salary raised he will make her Mrs G. W. "Simpkins without further agonising de lay. He asks her if she will not be happy when ...
THE CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
THE CIRCUS. The tented show on the St. Kilda road deservedly draws big houses. It is deci dedly a brilliant success. The academy of' trained animals is a novelty and a wonder. The various acrobats are fully up, to the excellence of other artistes which the Melbourne public have viewed. And what is more Mr. Neville 'Forderannounces that the mammoth pit is now open to the public for the admission fee of sixpence.
THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
THEATRE ROYAL. Jack Sheppard is a livener ! Packed houses all through the week. Even the disastrously punished punter finds suffi cient of the needful left to pay his respects to - the people's own Maggie. The remainder of the company make this successful musical burlesque flop along to large houses. To a great extent this combination has had the drop on the other shows since its opening-that is, taking the seating accommodation into consideration..,

THE PLANTER'S HOTEL. A REMINISCENCE OF THE OLD ST. LOUIS HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
THE PLANTER'S HOTEL & PREMrIScr-CE OF THE OLD ST. Loum HOUSE. " o the old Planters' Hotel has had to :los ?ip at last," said a gray-haired St. Louis merchant in an up-town cafe the other night as he read the despatch to that effect in the Tribune. "That's one of the old landmarks of St. Louis gone. I wonder what they'll do with it now. It seems only the other day when the build inc of it was begun with much ceremony; tI,..h i when you come to think of it that was over fifty years ago, and the centre of the town was down in the river district then, and we thought it was going to stay there. But it couldn't.

Nature's Mirror. THE PRINCESS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
H Nature's Mirror. ---4--. BY " REFLECTOR.t' THE PRINSESS. Distinctly French, the circumbient details of Mlam'zelle Nitouche are deci dedly.,of a visqgu tendency. Like other operas, in ,which a burlesque limning of congentional 'life is presented in conson ance with, the braggardism of the bar rack-room there are lines which closely approach the double enteudre. To some, this colouring enttances the perspective. The -music is light and airy. The tableaux vivants which follow are a series of ideal representations of poetic pic tures and celebrated statuary.

THE BIJOU. ....With John Gourlay and Marie Elsterin the principle parts of " Skipped by the Light of the Moon," Phil. Stewart had to;turn away money several nights this ;week. _The vocal oiio in the farcical absurdity is an extensive one. It em 6races many of the latest songs of the London hails, and is decidedly amusing.
