True to Self. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 3 August 1894
Ttrue to Self. A bruto of low conditoln You've heard of him, I s'pose- Had meekly gained permissron To warm his precious nose; Andl then with rough assurance, Quoth he, with brazen face, "This crowd-'tis past endurance I Old fogies, leave this place." Now for this fable's mission : When faults peep through your gate, Don't let them gain admission Beside your cheerful grate ; But turn them the cold shoulder, And chill them through and through Lest they grow bhld and bolder, As fabled camels do. Yoear face may be as charming, , As that of fairest rose; But deem it most alarming If there's a camel's nose But touches it with small deceit. I'll tell you what to do: Just show that camel to the street, And "to thyself be true." Your raiment may be simple, Though very rich and fine; Your cheeks may wear a dimple; Your eyes be "just divine." But if you shirk your duty To spy out others' sins, I would not for your beauty Give half a row of pins. You may perchance be " homely,, But if your tho...
Shadow Buff. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 3 August 1894
Shadow flltff.-This is another and amus ing game of blind man's buff, suitable for evenings, and is played as follows :-The shutters being closed and the lamps lighted, a white sheet must be stretched at one end of the room, in the same way as it is arranged for a magic lantern performrncee, or a large tablecioth may be fastened on the wall. In front of this is placed a chair. Having de cided by lot who shall act the part of blind man, and supposing it to have fallen on a little girl, she must be placed in the chair facing the sheet, and with her back to the lights, but without having her eyes blind. folded. Her companions then pass one by one behind her, so as to cast their shadows oi the white surface. They may put on wigs, hats, shawls, they may walk lame, dance, hop, bowl hoops, throw balls, and dis. guise tlhemselves in any manner that may oc. cur to them, so as to make the slhadows more grotesque andl more diflicult to find out. Three guesses are allowed to each filure, andi w...

SKETCHER.I loys lflho iltle 'c ecoIle Fernous. SNATCHED FROt A FALLING JiOUSBY. The month of Jnsuary, 1759, was loug re. membered in the west of Scotland as the stormiest of the whole year. None save the: boldest fisocrmcn--and very few even of, thert-dared to renture out to sea in the' teeth of the roaring gales which had raged unceasingly ever since Christmas Eve, while the hardiest peasants of the hills, though familiar front their childhood with every ridge and hollow for miles around, often had hard work to find their way front place to place through the blinding snows andt furious winds of the stermy season. The last day of the month had come, nnd still the wild weather continued unabated. Iut neither tihe howl of the rushing blast nor the crash of the falling trees along the frozen river disturbed the slumbers ofa little boy, hardly a week old, who lay sleeting in the rude clay hovel which his father's spade had hastily thrown up not many months be. fore. A sturdy little fell...
Who Built the House [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 3 August 1894
IWto Butilt t1he lHoraseo The house was in a pond. Peoplo passed along the rold in full sight of it, but never saw it. Boys came and caught frogs and chased turtles and captured blood.suckers, but did not notice it. In plain sight. it was, not twenty feet from the shore. The roof wne covered with a thatch of rushes, to keep out the rain. Within, there was one roomt a cosy bedroom, with a bed of dry grass, as soft as cdown. The walls were of mud. There were no pictures hanging on them nor was there either stove, chair, table of dish in the mansion. There were no win. dows. There was no chimney. And thodoon was under water. This Iouse had a very wet cellar-in fact, it was full of water. The ducks often swam close to the hooue, plunging their broad bills in the mud, and sometimes diving out of sight, but they never tried to enter. The frogs sat on the large lily leaves near by, and croaked long and loud ; but not one went in. The turtles sometimes climbed to the roof to san them. selve...
