TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

T A L., K. Talk is said to be cheap, but that is a' according to who do-s the talking. The re sponsible person may, and generally d c.e talk very little ; but what he does say may usually be taken at par. The person who said it wwas cheap, pr3b ably meant idle babble instead of tall, it. which case he should have gone much fan h':t and said that it was utterly -worthless, as well as ruinous to industry and tihe self. respect. Surely there is nothing more demoralising than ceaseless chatter.. And what silly waste it is-waste of time. purpose and possibilities I For unless you talk rather well, you only bore where you try to interest; and if you can talk well, it i. criminal perversity not to put the talent to a better use-that is, unless you are an auc tioneer or an insurance agent. But then that's business, and therefore out of the question. The trouble with most talk is that, after all the talker has said nothing. And when we want advice, do we go to the talker? Not but that the ta...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

FOO 0 T B L L. The Sunbury Junior Football Club held a " scratch " Fancy Dress Football match. on Saturday, which drew a large concourse of spectators, who were rather amused with the novelty. proceedings. A procession, headed by those in fancy c.stume, marched up O'Shanassy-streat, to the football ground, tie ' musical instruments" they had causing a lot of fllowers. There they immediately commnvnced " action" and kept the " ball rolling" for an hour or so. Verious characters were admirably ta~ken off, =uclh as Measles, Clowns, Darktown Celebrities, and the like. The Clowns, assisted by a daring-looking Cowboy. made a collection in aid of the club's funds at half-time, and were successful in obtaining 15s. Mr A. G. Boardman, in the regalia of a sailor, took the duties of central umpire and often encountered " breakers ahead," for the laws of foot ball were repeatedly ignored to add to the novelty of the pastime. The outing, on the whole, was amusing. Ameeting of the Sunbury Jun;or ...

A LESSON FROM LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

A LESSON : FROM LIFER. Ambition is an excellent thing, but some times it causef the man who is seeking a short cut to fortune to neglect the oppor tunity which leads to his goal in a roundabout way. Tea years ago, a French painter lived in a garret and earned a scanty pittance by copying pictures. He was always dreaming of great things, and longing for an oppor tunity to produce a classical canvas which should charm the world. He shared the fate of many who aim too high. He became poorer every day, and at last resolved to end the struggle by committing suicide. One evening he bought poison. Re-entering his room, something brushed past his feet. Be lighted a candle and began to write a few lines, merely to save trouble at the inquest. Suddenly there sprang upon the table a little yellow kitten; it rubbed caressingly against his face. Evidently a waif, for it was thin and half famished. With bread and milk, ally that he had, the artist fel the kitten; then warmed it within the breast ...

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

GRAINS OF GOLD,;-"-"'-":° BROTHERS AND Sisrsns.-The intim3acy and familiarity of brothers and sisters ought to bring forth the choicest fruits of sympathy and affection. Never through life is there a better opportunity of under-. standing one another's coaracter and of entering into one another's experience than is here afforded, yet nowhere perhaps are such opportunities more frequently thrown away. It is strange to see how easily these near and dear relatives fall into habits of coldness, hardness, and even positive un kindness they would not think of showing to those for whom they really care much less. RssroNsxsmarTr.-Responsibility should be a recognised element in both education and sell-culture. Wisely and tenderly, but steadily and gradually, should it be laid upon the young. They should be accustomed to make frequent decisions of their own, and allowed to take the con sequences. Perhaps the responsibility of deciding is one of the hardest to fulfill, and shows most plainly ...

DIGGER'S REST. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

S1GGER'S REST. c [FROM OvY OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Thursday. t A- littte consternation was caused y here on beholding two teams one com prised of four horses and the other three d attached to huge loads of hay proceeding I along the Castlemaiue-road in the direc- I tion of Melbourne at a break-neck pace, d minus their drivers who were observed following in hot haste, but despite their j efforts were evidently running a bad second as they were fast loosing ground in the chase. Fortunately the road r from the spot at which they became l aofrighted, to a distance of about three quarters of a mile had a rising gradient t which greatly impeded them in their mad career. They were brought to at standstill before they had reached the top by Mr James Murphy, who on observing them approaching proceeded to the centre of the road and with outstretched arms succeeded in stoping them, no::,damage being done. Had they reachei:the top of the rise adjacent to the Oval Hotel, unmolested, the result would...

HER FIRST TREASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

HER FIRST TREASURE. Other and dearer treasures may come to her as she grows older, but to the little girl there is nothing quite so precious as her doll. It may be ugly to every one else, but to her it is the very quintcssence of all that is lovely and beautiful and delightful. Its tattered heal. is perfection ; its staring blue eyes are all that eyes should or could be; its broken nose is artistic ; its matted and fuzzy hair is charming; and its stiff jointed legs are objects of profound admira tion and deepest solicitude-even its saw dust insides are precious, and the little girl will gather them up as they spill out through some unlucky fracture in the doll's anatomy with great care and much lamenta tion. That doll is probably the first worldly care which comes to the little girl. With its possession she takes up the burden of life. She loves it, she pets it, she worries about it. She hates her big brothers who stick pins in it, and toss it in the air, and hold it wrong end up, a...

AN ICE BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

AN ICE BATH. The Esquimaux are dependent upon the sea for everything they eat, and for the clothes they wear, but none of them know how to swim: This seems strange at first, but becomes less remarkable when we take into account the fact that in the Arctic Ocean the temperature of the water is never above the freezing point. The na tives of that region guard against the danger of drowning by making the cover ing of their boats so tight about the body of the fisherman that there is no leakage even if they do happen to overturn When the steamer Kite was in MicCor mick Bay with the party of Lieut-nant Peary, one of the crew took a swim, which is thus described by Dr. Keely : "After we had returned to the ship Mr Verhoeff declared that the water lolked so pleasant that he would swim from the ship to the shore and back again. Those who heard the assertion attempted to dissuade him, pointing to the numerous icebergs which floated about in every direction. Even when he stripped, we all thou...

SELF-RELIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

SELF-RELIANCE. As soon as a cildl is old enough to under stand the value of money, it should be taught to keep a small cash account, if only to show what use is made of the funds placed at its disposal. If the family is living in the country it is an excellent plan for the boys and girls to have a vegetable garden of their own, and sell the vegetables to the family. as it is said to be the custom very frequently in good English families. This should not be a mere matter of play. The vegetabets shonid be purchased on their merits alone. and at the prevailing market prices, inferior ones beirg thrown back upon the young gardener in order to teach him practical methods of business. Such simp'e vegetables as radishes and lettuce may be easily rsisei by a boy, or a girl either, for that matter. It teches children self-reliance to earn their own spending money. It is just as necessary that a girl should learn tiiis as that her brother should. An important matter to teach her is the value ...

POE.TRY, The Stepmother. The marriage-rite was ovtr, And though I turned aside Ibo keep the guests from seeing The tears a could not hiae, I wreathed my face so smiling, And with my little brother, I greet my father's chosen, But I could not cll htier mother. She was a fair young creature, With a sweet and winning air, With blue eyes, mild and tender, And silken sunny hair. I know my father gave her all the love he bore another, But if she were an angel, I could not call her mother. They took my mother's picture From its accustomed place, And hung beside my father A younger, fairer face.: They made her dear old chamber Tie boudoir of another, But I never will forget thee, My own, my angel mother ! Last night I heard her singing A song I used to loeve, When its sweet words were uttered By her who sings above. It pained my heart to hear it. And the tears I could not smother, For every word was hallowed By the dear voice of my mother. My father in the sunshine Of happier days to come, ...

A SOURCE OF DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

A SOURCE OF DANGER. One day a physician chanced to see some mounds of j-dlv standing just outside his kitchen window. He askeo his wife if it was the cook's custom to leave the j-llv thun unprotected. She answered in the astlirmna tive. Then he said-" Don't you know that wlen we medical men watt to secure minute organisms for investigation, we expose gelatine to the air. or in places where we have confined malignant germs,' The gela tine speedily attra ts and holds them. I'm afraid your flavoured gelatine does the same. Co 1 the jelly if you must, but cover it with a piece of sheer close muslin; or, better, if you have it, some pieces of glass, taken from some broken window pane." There is a hint here for everyboly.

Lord WVallace showed Shirley marked - attention during the remainder of the evening, with the express purpose of letting Miss Lovering see that he resented C her unexampled rudeness to his guest. 1 He was not in the habit of dancing very Ii much, unless it was necessary to make out a a set, or to prevent some unfortunate n maiden from becoming a wall-flower. But b on this evening he solicited the favour of h Shirley's hand no less than three times, while the other young gentlemen guests, a among whom the story of Miss Lovering's insult had been freely circulated and in dignantly discussed, vied with each other P in trying to make Shirley have a good s' time and forget the unpleasant occurrence.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 September 1893

THE LADIES' COLUMN. When a reliab'e authority in matters of style accepts a fashion, the world of women can safely follow the given suggestions. However, it is well to realise the fact that no one feature of fashion should be accepted generally in its original slate, but it must be subject to modifications and embellishments to accord with the personality of th wearer. Fashion seems content to keep within a happy medium between the gored fourrean and the ample balloon. On the other hand, bodices are of moderate length, not coming down beyond the natural limits of the waist Sleeves which are now drooping, not puffed up, are much trimmed upon the shoul ders with draperies, jet fringes, or loops of ribbon. For spring walking toilets, a favorite model is the Spencer, an over-bodice of velvet or silk. It is cut round-waisted, has a close collar, aed balloon sleeves. It is worn over the dress, and need not be matched to it in color. It is chiefly made of black or dark blue," or violet vel...
