ECONOMICAL HOUSEKEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893

ECONOMU'CAL HOUSEKEEPING. There are few housewives who do not find it an absolute necessity to practise economy m re, or less, but unluckily it is generally those whom circumstances re quire should do so rigidly who know least of the ways and means which give comfort with but little expense. The young wife who begins housekeeping on a very hmited income has too frequently but little know ledge and experience, w hichalone can enable her to manage successfully. She has pro bably never ordered a dinner before, and p)isibly h.s never tried to solve the pro blezn of how to prJvide ample nourishing food at a reasonable price, To add to her difficulties the inexperienced housekeeper often has to deal with an equally inexperi enced cook, or if she has guarded herself against that danger by engaging a woman ot more mature age and knowledge. she too often finds that her domestic, instead of helping her to economise, resents her attempts at thriftiness as " mean ways," and manages only too suc...

FRECKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893

FRECKL ES. Feeckles are considered by some to be a sign of beauty ; indeed, many good-looking ladies are proud of them if they are fortu nate enough to possess just the right quantity of them. and in the right place. it is always people with delicate skins, and generally people with good complexions, who potsess them. They are most common on the fc-e, but sometimes are found on the hands and other parts of the body. They are seldom met with in young children. All people have a colouring matter in the skin, which without it would be white and ghastly, and it is this pig meat or colouring matter which makes the difference between the white man and the negro, the , hinese, and the Red Indiar. If, then, fair-complexioned people have places in the skin of the face where there is an extra amount of pigment, they naturally have the appearance commonly known as freckles, which. being darkened by the light of the sun, are more prolin ent in winter than in summer. Those who have a face covere...

THE FUGITIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893

THE 'F. UGITIV E, BY- FRBNK H. COLEBURN. Circumstances certainly pointed to the fact that John Logan was a thief. The horse had been found in his possession, and he had been unable to satisfactorily explain how he came by it. Everybody in Rocky Gorge knew the horse. How was it possible to mistake that white nose and evil eye ? The owner was willing to swear to the animal. and the owner was an honest man. What further'evidence could be desired ? John Logan protested his innocence, hut so would the most hardened of criminals. No, no ! The jury was quite correct .in their verdict of '. Guilty," and the judge improvised for the occasion stood up and solemnly pronounced the death sentence. John Logan heard it unmoved. He was not afraid to die. He had been a citizen of' Rocky Gorge for three years, and had not made a single friend. He wms the 'most -unsociable man alive. During the day he worked at his claim ; when. night fell he sought his lonely cabin and kept it. Three times he had sav...

THE DEMON PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893

THE DEMON PLANT. By MAJou GREEN. "I hate all Americans ''" sneered Signor Berteliini, regarding the hand some, flushed face of Alan Loyd with an evil smile. " My Ilma shall wed her Cousin Giovanni, who has long loved her. Sooner would I lay her a corpse at my feet than s,,e her the wife of a cursed American !" ' That is your final word ?" demanded the younger man, turning pale. " Yes. Look you, Signor Loyd-you are a fair-appearing young fellow, and my daughter loves yoa, you say. So much the wo-se for you both. My sister wedded one of your nation, 'neath the sunny skies of our beautiful Italy. In a year she came back to our father's house to die-broken-hearted, deserted by her scoundrelly husband. He-the traitor was fair in appearance as yourself! Look you, Signor Loyd-I emigrated to this island that my daughter might be spared the curse of loving an Ame rican. Now go, ere, remembering my sister, I strike you to the earth !" Alan Loyd turned without a word and left the house, with a...

THIE BUiTTLEJORK REVENUE... (TO THE EDITOR OF THE SUNBURY NEWS.) SIR,--Adverting to the disposal of the Buttlejork revenue, about which we have heard so much of late, perhaps a few remarks from an impartial observer through the medium of your valuable journal will not be amiss, espee?lly now that the " municipal atrms " have sub siiod. Na right-thinking person will mistake the intention of our able repre sentative, Counc;llor Starkie, still in this he appears inclined to gofurther than circumstances will permit, and I an sure he will be found always ieady to support any movement having for its object the advancement of our town. However, to get back to my. subject, I would suggest that, instead of diverting the whole of the Buttlejork revenue to the use of Sunbury, our interests would be better served with the half, and let the other half be expended on the direct road between here and Gisborne, or, as it is better known, " the back road " to Gisborne ; thus on its completion bringi...

THE LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893

THE LECTURE. After the tea meeting an amusing and instructive entertainment entitled "' The Journey of Life," was given by Mr E. Adcock, of Melbourne. Mr Brown. of Green Hills, occupied the chair. The proceedings commenced by the choir giving a selection, after which Mr Brown briefly introduced the lecturer. whom he declared to be nothing if not a humorist. Mr Adcock said life was a great mystery--the birth of man was a great mystery-and sleep was agreat mystery. In fact all life was mysterious. He. amusingly described the various characters of man, " the masher with the moustaches," who sets his life on pleasures, the miser who lived for money ! money ! the student who burnt electric light at Nhill, gas in Melbourne, and the oil " of loving kindness" in Sunbury. It had been said life was a thrilling drama from the cradle to the grave. Some commenced the journey of life with a silver spoon in their mouths, while others started with a wooden spoon. (Laughter.)

THE FROZEN MEAT INDUSTRY IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893

THE FROZEN MEAT INDUSTRY IN VICTORIA, It is generally admitted that the great re action in the colony of New Zealand, from a state of depression to an exceptional con dition of prosperity, is due to the develop ment of the frozen meat export trade; and it is now being urged that Victoria can fol low the example with equal results. A re cent arrival from London amongst us advo cates the erection by the Government of an extensive freezing works on the Goulburn River, where the North Eastern line crosses it at Seymour, and be states that if his suggestion is adopted he will guarantee an annual rental for the works of 5 per cent. per annum upon their cost, estimated at £40.000. When this gentleman's proposal was first made public, it was pointed out to him that as the Government hal already agreed with Messrs. Turnbull, Hotson and Co. for their freezing works at Newport, it would not be fair for the Government to build a second set of works, almost, as it might be said, to compete with ...
