THE LIFE OF A MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 16 November 1883

THE LIFE OF & MAN. -------o -0 Mnan, born of woman, is of a few days and no teeth. And, indeed, it would be money in his pocket sometimes if ho had less of either. As for his days, he wastoth one-third of them, and as for his teeth, he has convulsions when he cuts them, and as the last one comes through, lo I the dentist is twisting the first one out, and the last end of that man's jaw is worse than the first, being full of porcelain and a plate-roof built to hold blackberry seeds. Stonebruises line his pathway to manhood ; his father boxeth his ears at home; the big boys cuff him in the playground, and the teacher whipshim in the school. room. He buyeth North-western at 110, when he hath sold short at 96, and his neighbor unloadoth upon him Iron Mountain at 631, and it straight way breaketh down to 521. He risath early and sitteth up late that he may fill his barns and storehouses, and lo I his children's lawyers divide the spoil among themselves and say, " a ha I " He grow...

CONTEMPT OF A JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 16 November 1883

ICONTEMPT OF A JUDGE. When the Doric arrived at Auckland wharf there was a great rush to get on board her. A quartermaster was told ofl to prevent any one getting on the dock, and he had turned a number of persons back, when (sa:ys the New Zealand lerald) his Honor Judge Gillies passed through the crowd, and, in happy ignorance of the order given, and of what had occurred, went straight up the gangway. The crowd began to cry out, '"Put him back, too : make no fish of one and flesh of another." But the remarks were quite superfluous. The quartermaster, in a twinkling, had the Bench in his vyco-liko grasp. The Judge remonstrated; but the only re ply was, "Can't help it, sir; if it was the ship's ownerorders must boe obeyed." At this juncture Mr. Batger, the local manager of the New Zealand Shipping Company, who was on board, got sight of what was going on, and, horrified at the contempt of Court which was being committed,b'gan a series of pantomimic gestures to the sailor, to the effe...

As the majority of the in habitants are from Evelyn the news will be read with interest. Mr. Thomas Lees, formerly of Glonhurot, near the Lodge at Lilydalo, has named his farm hers after the above property. I was, a few days since, favored with an invi tation to inspect the farm and its arrangements, and was much pleased with my visit. Mr. Lees has over 60 head of horses for breeding and stock purposes, as good a stamp as any in South Gippaland. " No Surrender," the old Lilydale favorite, is still with him. The TL brand made a good show lately at Melbourne. Ono of his colts, " Roan King," sold for a high figure and has gained several prizes for the new owner. With respect to NMr. Lees' dairy establishment it is in every way creditable; lhe has over 30 cows milk ing, with a return of 160 Ibs. butter per ...

A HANGMAN IN A NEW POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 16 November 1883

A HANGMAN IN A NEW POSI. TION. The writer of London "Town Talk" in the Argus relates that when Mar wood, the public executioner, recently visited the House of Commons holooked with peculiar interest at one of the more prominent of the professional ob structionists as a tailor regards a pos. sible customer with an eye to a fit. lio was accompanied by a small bridal party to which he had previously acted as "best man." What a curious choice it seems for a bridegroom to make ! One bears a gentleman at the altar jocularly spoken of as being "turned of," but that he should employ professional as sistance of this kind is something amaz ing. In ease, however, the system should become fashionable, Mr. M. was careful to leave his address--hureh. lane, Horneastle, Lincolnshire-with the doorkeeper of the hereditary cham ber. Perhaps in the case of a Governs. ment official entering the matrimonial noose there would be a certain nppro priateness in employing him, but I doubt his over being patro...

PENNY READINGS AT CHRISTMAS HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 16 November 1883

PENNY READINGS AT CHRIST MAS HILLS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A meeting of the Christmas Hills Penny Readings Society was hold in the Mechanics' Institute on Monday evening last, it having been postponed from the previous Friday through the unfavourable state of tile weather. Mr. John Smith coumenced the pro gramme by a comic reading, which he gave in a good style, "Darby Doyle's Voyage to Quebec," which occasioned great laughter, especially amongst the juveniles. The second name called upon was that of Miss Ashmooro, who sang a most beautiful song, " The star that lights my lover home," with such pathos and feeling that one could scarcely help thinking she has recently noticed one more brilliant than the rest, performing that service on the lonely read leading from "Lone Vills." At tih risk of repeating what I have written on previous occasions I must express the pleasure it gave mo to hear her rich, powerful, and sweet voice. Mr. Benjamin Smith was now called upon, who, with g...

THE LATE MAORI CHIEF, METE KINGI. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 16 November 1883

THE LA'T'E MAORI C|IEF, METE KINGI. Mete Kingi, the Maori chief whose death has lately been announced, was (says tie IllustratedAuAtralian Nesws) a well known character in the Wan ganui district of New Za!land. His ago was a question about which there was a good deal of doubt, but he was plpularly said to have passed the cen tury. It is possible that the popular tradition in this as in other respects may involve an exaggeratron, but the age of the old chief tust have been greatly beyond the average of human life, fur Mete Kingi was a character fdriliar to two generations in the dis trict in which he lived. lHe is de scribed as a brave and loyal leader of a fast decaying race. The Now Zea land Government accorded him the military funeral due to a major, and the ceremonies were witnessed by an immense crowd, numbering about 5000 pakehas, including almost every resident, young and old, in the dis. trict for miles around, and 1130 Mraoris.

WESLEYAN CHURCHII, WIIIT TLESEA. Quito a novelty in the shape of a tea meeting took place in the above church last Wednesday. , It is not often the quiet township of Whittlesea is dis turbed by the folks coming to a tea and public meeting, and partaking of the cup that chears but does not "inebriate," at least as far at the Wesleyan portion of the community is concerned, seeing it is about four or five years since one was hold. IHowever, the friends thought they would like to renovate the House of God and for this object held a tea meeting. in order, to raise the funds. They were rather dubious as to the suc cess on account of it being so close to Ciip Day,'and thought many of the men employed on the works would go to the city and attend the great event of the year, but there was no cause for their fears, as it was well patronized by old and young, about 300 being pre sent, and, judging from aplearanau s, came with a full determination to do full justice to the many excellent things...

A MODERN MAORI PAH. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 16 November 1883

A MODERN MAORI PAIH. 0 Pakhowhai Peh, on the 1ýgaruroro River, is one of a number of modern ised pabs in the Hawke's Bay district. Instead of the old raupo or bark where which usually forms the habitation of. the Maori, these pabs are con structed of weatherboards with a shingled roof, a wide verandah invari ably being added for the sake of appearances. As a rule, however, these buildings are intended more for ornament than use, as the owners will generally be found wrapped in their blankets in some smoky tumbled down old where alongside. In the extreme distance is the runanga or church, which is almost always well attended, the Maoris, generally speak ing, being strict observers of the Lord's day and appear to rejoice in the fact that there is at least one day on which it is not even 'necessary to make a pretence of working.-2Ae llUwltmted Auatralian News.

As he reaches the famous Victoria Embankment, there rises over him on the right hand the new Times ollce, and on the left lhand the new tower crowned works of Messrs. JASres Errs & Co., both phases of Italian architecture. It may be said that those two buildings are typls of a far reaching business energy of the nineteenth century, for it has resulted from such means that these tno establish ments have brought themselves to the fore, and that the annual issue of each has come to be estimated by millions.
