Original Poetry. RHYMES FOR YOUNG READERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 30 November 1894
Original Poetry. BHYMES FOR YOUNG READERS. Kind friends, I'm but .; little girl, And not so very wise. Yet I can see the ills of drink, Where'er I turn my eyes. Perhaps you think I shon!uld not speak, But learn to hold my tongue, Yet I have learnt why chilkren cry, Although I am so youug. Thlere's little Nell comes to cur school, A quie: little thing; I never see her laugh or play, I never hear her sing. Anud when I ask her why she cries, And why she looks so qleer ? The tears flow faot, as she replies, 'My father will drink bre:e. And oftentimes he's o?t of work, And I want boots you see; Oh, if my father wan d not drink, How happy we should be. A year ago our little pet, My baby sister May, Took ill and died. anol then I heard My auother, sobbing, say ' If fel I am glad that baby's gone; I mua t be mad [ think; Oh, why do men make women cry?! I wish there was n' drank.' Oar brother Tom has had to leave His hom-. end to away; For fatle. is so eros, when drunk, He ciuld no longer st...

News and Notes. ELECTORA-L RIGHTS.- Owing to the greatinterest now beingtakenbythepublic in Parliamnentary affairs it is to be 'expec ted that the number of Electoral Rights which will be :aken out up to the end of this year is lilely to be greatly in excess of those issued in former yeals. Arrange ments have been made by the Authorities to enable Reglstials to get through their duties in a more satisfactory manner than heretofore. Sone complaints were made since the amending Electoral Act came nto force that persons who had simply moved from one di\vision of an Electoral District to another tad their names talen offthe list-. The Elector himself is to is to blame for this if he did not notify the postali authorities of his change of address. The electoral inspector of the district in ivhich this paper circulates de votes two houses each eve-ning from 6 to 8 odclock at his office, II Queensberry-st., to meet any such cases and to answer inquiries.

LOOKING FOR A NIGHTSHIRT ::IN- A DINNER-BASKET. A traveller on the New York Central Rail read relates the following incident of travel: -A middle-aged married couple turned in nua to me, having boarded the train at a r.ay station. They had evidently been mnuch hurried, and were out of humour, forthe wife was fretful and excited, and the husband growled above his breath in this style: " Now, I'll just bet you didn't put my r:ghtshirt in I" " S'hushl It's in the basket in the corner," rcpiies the woman. "I've looked in the basket., and 'taint there. I s'pose you put it at the ibottom, -.:.er the vittals." "In the vitals, indeed? Why, John, what on e-a-r-t-h are you a-doin' ?" "I'm looking for my shirt." "Don't ! that's the wrong basket. You've gone and spilt them pickles all over the bed i I never seen such a man!" " Never mind, Mary, you needn't tell the 'hole car." This in a whisper peculiar to the stage. "Looking for your old shirt in the dinuer basket ! I don't see what anybody wa...

BRITISH BEDSTEADS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 30 November 1894
BRITISH BEDSTEADS. The beds of our remote ancestors were very different from the comparatively luxurious accommodation which is '?sTred to even tlrhe poorest amongst us '.Thepii~irkit day. . In Anglo-Saxon times, the houses geuerally consisted of one large room, scantily furnished with a few trestles -ind boards, benches and chests. These answered the double purpose of tables and seats by day, and bedsteads at night Upon these were placed bags filled with straw, on which the family and servants slept. In the larger houses it was customary to place the bench or chest for the mistress and her daughters in a recess at the side of the ronom in the Inmanner wve sometimes still see in Scot landl, and this recess was separated from the apartment by'a turtain. The modern word "bedstead " means literally "a place for a bed;" and it is probable what we call bedsteads were rare, and only used by people of high rank. 1With the Norman Conquest many French fashions and greater refinement were int...

A Fool and A Woman. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 30 November 1894
A Fool and A WOman. a -Bminsterwas in afiutter of excite ment Chimbang had come at last. Some ten days past the old city had been vio lently awakened from its normal slum .tons mood by beholding one morning its quiet streets mysterioualv-almost magi cally - blazoned with ig'ntic posters, vivid and polychromatie as the aurora borealis, announcing the electrifying fact that Chimbang was coming. Later these were supplemented by others portraying the marvels-equestrian, pedestrian, dra matic, hippodrametic, terrestrial, and celestia--combining to make up that won drous whole, Chimbang's World-Famed Ciicus. And later yet, every dead wall in Bavminster w-as alive with the counterfeit presentment, on a scale of a yard to the inch, of the great Chimbang himself ; that identical Chimbang, who, firm in his re solve to bewilder Bayminster, had left the crowned heads of Europe to wear a golden sorrow. And soon, on a piece of waste ground in the outskirts of thb city, mnwonted signs of activity ...
LOST IN THE PULPIT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 30 November 1894
LOST IN THE PULPIT They make a great mistake who sup pose that extempore preaching has been the law with all great preachers; in fact, we may almost go so far as to say the re verse has been the case. Extemporising will often be exposed to difficulties which only a very honest mind can overcome, and make the best of. When Father Taylor, the Americas preacher, once lost himself and became bewildered in the course of his sermon, he extricated him self by the exclamation: "I have lost the track of the nominative case, my brethren, but, one thing I know, I am bound for the kingdom !" and the frankness of such a confession saved him from suffering in the esteem of his audience. A similar anecdote has often been told of the late Thomas Binney. Dr. Harris, the author of " Mammon," had begged his services for some anniversary, and Binney declared his utter inability to prepare a sermon - in those days he was a strictly extempore speaker. It was urged. "Oh, come and preach such and such a se...

The occasion was con s?deredi opportune bfor bowling practice, no less than six trundlers being tried. The most successful, was Eslick who took 4 wickets for 20 runs, Maplestone and Ming capturing a similar number for 26 and 27 respectively.

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 7 December 1894
THEATRE ROYAL" It wa~s a big house that greeted the company on Saturday night, when the "Child of the Regiment" (a comely opera) and "The Fool of the Fami-y"' were billed until Tuesday night. Miss Moore ~s Betty sang cllr old favoriteS "Shouldn't Wonder" and "Riding ii a Railway Ker." Numbers of people, it may be safely said, visited the theatre to hear Maggio's warbling of these quaint melodies. Then on T;esday night the "Colleen Bawn" was put up. Maggie Moore, of coure, played the "colleen," the picturesque Eily O'Connor. And-MaIggie o.or", aa p:reiictedl, played it to a la¶.Lh ing and weeping house. There is nobody in Australia, in light drama, who can hold up the sympathies, risible or sorrowful, than Maggie Moore. Even the most threadbare situations or dramatic dialogue bare of sentiment can, in the hands of this most capable and versatile artist be made the keynote to the affections of her audience. Mr. Harry Roberts, as usual], puts in sterling work.
