ON THE BATTLEFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

ON THE BATTLEFIELD. I thought the soldier at my feet was dead-killed by a fragment of the ssiue shell which had rendered me helpless-but as the night came down and the dew began to fall lite came back to him. He lad on his back, his white face upturned to the heavens, and as I peered through the gloom I saw that his eyes were open. By and by, as he whispered and muttered to himself, the smoke of battle which had hung for hours like a black cloud over that part of the field floated off before the night-breeze, and the purple canopy was studded with bright stars. His eyes saw them as well as mine, and presently he cried out in a joyful way : "Ben! Little lien : Ah ! Thank CGod I was dreaming of him, and I dreamed that I got home from the war to find him lyirg in his coffin. I wept over him and called him by name, but he was dead. Kiss me, Benny! Toank God, that was only a dream !" He was talking to one of the bright stars above him. "And that's Nan !" he went on after a minute. " I dr...

PROMOTION OF THE REV. W. C. FORD. RURAL DEAN OF KYNETON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

PROMOTION OF THE REV.. W. C. FORD. RURAL DEAN OF KYNETON. We stated in these columns a few weeks ago that a beautifully illuminated address of farewell was presented to the Rev. Canon Carlisle, the Rural Dean of Kyneton, who for the past six years so ably presided over their deliberations, by the members of that chapter. We are now pleased to inform our readers that the Bishop of Melbourne has appointed the Rev. Charles Ford, of Sunbury, to the position of Rural Dean of Kyneton, vzce Canon Carlisle. The rev. gentle man has held the curacy at Sunbury for a number of years, has won the good feeling of the whole district, and we have not the slightest doubt he will prove worthy of the new trust reposed in him by the Bishop. The Rev. Ford is one of the ablest preachers in the colony, as well as being a christian, a scholar, and a gentleman.. We only echo the voice of the community when we wish him happiness in his future life, and success in his new sphere. It may be as well to state, a...

A DOG'S LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

A DOG'S LUCK. Alfred de Musset, the famous French pt , t, was at one time conducting a canvass fIn .n election to the French Academy, M3end lis of this distinguished body are ele:te: to it by those who are already members: and custom requires that an aspirant shall go about soliciting the votes of members. Musset had gone from one Academician to another, and was on his way, on foot, to the house of the Count de Saint Aulaire, j nst out side Paris. whose vote he hoped to gain. When he almost arrived at the place, a large yellow dog began to follow him ; but the dog sneaked behind, and as the poet was too much wrapped in his thoughts to look round, te did not know that what perhaps was the most hideous dog in Paris was at hii heeli. When the poet rang at M. de Saint Aulaire's door the dog watched his chance, and as the door was opened slipped into the house. The servant supposed the dog was the new comer's, and the poet supposed that it belonged to the house. The host and his family w...

THE RUPERTSWOOD HORSE ARTILLERY. PRESENTATION OF PRIZES. WITH THE SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

THE RUPERTSWOOD HOnrSE ARTILLERY. PRESENTATION OF PRIZES. WITH THE SOLDIERS. On Tuesday night a parade of the Rupertswood battery was held in the drill-room, Sunbury. A good muster turned up on the occasion, and Major Hughes took the opportunity of pre senting the men who had won trophies at the Islington and Dublin Military competitions with their prizes. When the Victorian Horse Artillery journeyed to England Major Hughes was handed £20 by Colonel Freeman as a prize for the man who made theobest record at the tournament. Lieutenant Ham, of the 2nd Regiment, gave him £10 as a second prize. The first was won by Corporal Nicholson, and the second by Driver James M'Kedn. When Major Hughes presented these prizes to the successful competitors, along with the trophies won by members of the team generally, he complimented them on their success. He told them to strive to maintain the good name they had won by their visit to England. They had been honored by their trip, and doubtless h,oked...

IRON NERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

IRON `NERVE. There were four of us who had ent trm pl for the night on the Gunnison river, in Western Colorado. We had been prospect ing for gold with decidedly poor sucoess and were therefore rather disheartened, but we endeavoured to keep up our spirits while we lay about the roaring campfire and smoked. Suddenly we were startled by a peculiar whirring sound which every man of us recognised instantly. " There's a rattler in the camp," cried Jeffries as he started up. " Look out fir it!" We all moved rather hastily with the exception of Bolton, who lay quite still on his back, his hands under his head, his cob pipe having fallen from his teeth. "Sh !" he whispered. " For heaven's sake, keep still I The snake has crawled into my shirt!" 1We all knew what that meant, and we became motionless instantly. I felt a chill of horror run down my spine as I thought of the poisonous reptile snuggled to Bol ton's bosom, in which it might plant its deadly fangs in a few moments. The flar ing fi...

CRITICIZING THE CRITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

CeurrITl7INxi TUH CRITI.iCS.-In a text book on rhetoric used in one of our col leges, the Listener recently came upon this : "A sentence should contain overt word which is necessary to the eficient communication of thought or feeling, l-i: not one word more."

MILLIONS FOR CLEAN STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

MILLIONS FOR CLEAN STRETs...Belin fast becoming a city of asphalt, and you can drop your handkerchief anywhere and pick it up without soiling it. The City takes care of its own sewers, and it has a number of farms on its outskirts over which the street sweepings are scattered by paupers of the city. The sewerage. is pumped out of the sewer onto the farms, and through this the land has become the most fertile in Germany. A large part of the cleaning cf the streets is done by boys who get something like twenty-five cents a day, and who are at work on every block gathering up the dirt as it falls, and on a wet day scrubbing up the streets with a rubber broom or a sort of rubber hose. These boys sometimes work in gangs, and half a dozen of them will take up a street and push the dirt onto the sewers, lea ing the road as clean as though it were scrubbed. If this scrubbing is done at night clean sand is scattered over the streets to prevent the horses or men from falling, and the whole ci...

"GETTING INTO A SCRAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

" G ETTIoNilNTO A SCRAP."--The red and fallow deer which formerly roamed through the English forests had a habit of scraping up the earth with their forefeet to the depth of several inches, sometimes even of half a yard. The stranger passing through these woods was frequently exposed to the danger of tumbling into one of the hol lows, when he might he said truly to be 'in a scrape." The college students of Cambridge, in their little perplexities, picked up and applied the phrase to other perplexing matters, which had brought a man morally into a fix. P~T TOGRAPir?G IN COLOURS.-Photo graphing in colours has been successfully accomplished in Berlin. The method is based upon the fact that all effcts of light proceed from three primary colours-yel low, rod and blue. By means of coloured screens or by dyeing the photographic plates three negatives are obtained of the same object, each being sensitive to light only of one of the primary colours. It seems wonderful that, with all the range...

A ROYAL QUEEN OF HEARTS; OR, Love's Devotion. CHAPTER XX. MADAME AND SHIRLEY RECEIVE AN INVITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

QUEEN OF HEARTS; OR, Love's Devotion. By MRS. G. ShELDON. CHAPTER XX. MADA1ME AND SIIIRLET RECEI\'E AN INVITA TION. " Isn't she lovely, mother ?" Neil Wal lace asked of her ladyship, as they stood together in the great stone porch and watched Madame Marton and her yosu:g company drive away from Ivyhurst. "L suppose you mean Miss Livingstone," Lady Wallace remarked, with a quiet smile. " Yes, she is very beautiful, but who is she P" " I simply know her as madame's coin panion; I have learned nothing of her antecedents," the young man replied. But one thing I have discovered, and that is, in soul and character, Shirley Livingstone is one of the purest and noblest of women. Her mind is a store house of knowledge, wonderful in one so young, while in beauty and grace she has not her peer in St. Sauveur." " You are enthusiastic, my son," was the mother's rather cold rejoinder, but she gave utterance to a weary sigh as she thought of another who bad been almost as fair, and who had years b...

ALUMINUM BICYCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 September 1893

ALUMINUM BICYCLES. The long-looked-for application of alum inum in bicycle-making is now an assured fact. Its deadness or lack of flexibility and its fibrile weakness are said to have been overcome, and now the desired qualities will be added to lightness and bicycles will be light, strong and cheap. A St. Louis manufacturing concern holds a patent on a new process of aluminum making it possible, it is said, to give from two to three times the strengh, weight for weight, to be found in the common steel bicycle frame. N. H. Van Sicklen of Chicago, recently attended an experimental test at Washington University, St. Louis, in which a bicycle frame of aluminum was placed under a beam-testing machine. At 500 pounds pressure the permanent deflec tion amounted to only 3-1,000 of an inch and at 1,000 pounds only 14-1,000 of an Sinch. It required 2,375 pounds to break the bicycle frame. It is deemed practi cable to cast the bicycle frame in one piece brazings in aluminum being considered an...
