THE WHIRLPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 7 October 1893

THE WHIRLPOOL. BY ALPHONSE KARR;. I It was an oppressive evening in the a month of July. The air was surcharged I with moisture and overhung with clouds sI of a coppery grey, which, as they a touched the tops of the distant trees, a sent through them a tremor ~ithout arousing the least rustling sound. At ti times a dull reverberation was heard ti afar, following a lightning flash. I Involuntarily subdued with that awe h which accompanies the approach of a I storm, and which seems to be shown by b Nature herself, three men sheltered in a a chamber conversed together in subdued tones. In these convulsions of the outer I world man endeavors to make himself f small and imperceptible, like a child a who, to escape the anger of his teacher, c seeks to conceal himself beneath his c bench. I " My dear sirs," said the youngest of r the three, whose worn features and v feeble voice indicated deep fatigue and t prolonged vigils, "you know what-. I desire.

QUEEN OF HEARTS ; OR, Love's Devotion., By MBS. G. ShELDON. CHAPTER XXVI. SHIBLEY HAS A TRYING TIIE WITH lADAaitf. " What do we think ?" demanded Helen Montcalm, as she arose from her chair, her little form quivering with indignation, her face crimson, her eyes blazing with scorn. " I'll tell you what I think; I think that your friend-and I should despise such a friend-is very vulgar and disrespectful in the way she speaks of Madame Marton, while what she has written about Miss Livingstone appears to me to be character ised by an ill-bred spite that is simply despicable." " Mercy, Helen i what a little radical you are!" exclaimed Miss Lovering, re gardiffg her with astonishment. '" Perhaps you would like to have this girl succeed in her artful schemes, and marry Mr Vining." " If he loved her, and was worthy of her, there is no reason why she should not," Helen spiritedly replied. "Horrors! His father is a millionaire, and he has been reared most luxuriously ; while she, it seems, ha...

MATTERS MUNICIPAL, NUISANCE IN O'SfIANASSY STREET. The many eyes of the Bulla Shire Council must have. been closed 'of late - when they allow the drain passing the chemist's shop, and running along O'Shanassy-street to Station-street, to be blocked with congealed mud, stag nant water, and refuse of every de scription. Imagine anyone with half an eye failing to see it ? It appears the culvert reaching across Station-street to the creek is either broken or stuffed up, for when the water reaches there it is denied admittance and dammed back. The result is obvious. The water be comes polluted in a very short space of time, the mud gathers, and the next thing.to reach,our ears vilLbe that somea contagion has: sprung up in our? midst and, from where it originated will not be hard to know.

RIDDELLS' CREEK. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] ,Thursday. 0 I hear one of our local sportsmen 1 landed a fine trout recently, the weight being five and three-quarter pounds. O have to record the death of a youn;r woman formerly resident in this locality, viz., Mrs Bacon, wife of Mr Bacon. contractor, of Brunswick, Mel bourne, a daughter of the late J.

I hear of a sad and fatal accident occurring at Castlemaine, the victim being Mr F. Marston, formerly of Lancefield Junction. He was in the act of shunting trucks, when he stepped off and was caught by an incoming train running tender first. He leaves a wife and two children. Mrs Marston is the daughter of Mrs M.

READILY ANSWERED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 14 October 1893

READILY ANSWERED. When a man tempts fate by reminding a spinster of her condition, his punishment is generally swift and sure. In a county of Ireland where the Quakers are numerous, the entire body were on one occasion gathered together for one of their Quarterly Meetings. After the exercises of the morning, a public luncheon was held, at which all the Friends attended. The con versation turned on matrimony. " Bridget," said an unmannerly youthful member of the society, speaking across the crowded table to a prim elderly maiden lady, " wilt thou tell me why thou hast never married P" "Certainly, friend William," responded the ready Bridget, in a voice audible all over the room. "'Tis because I am not so aisy pleased as thy wife was." "You talk a good deal in your sleep, John," said Mrs Henpelck. " It's the only CQ $,I'vvo 9t," saidm John, meek',

ALL WRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 14 October 1893

ALL WRONG. Wifely anxieties do not always spring from the causes assigned them by self complacent husbands. Jones lives near the sea, and is in the habit of getting up early and going for a swim before break fast. One morning his wife remarked at the breakfast table: " George, I am so anxious while you are away bathing in the morning that I can't sleep a wink until you get back." George felt very much flattered that his wife cared so much for his safety, and being desirous of allaying her apprehensions, he said: " Don't be alarmed. I know how to swim, and there is no danger of my getting drowned." "I was not thinking about your getting drowned. That never entered my head; but I am afraid some thief, knowing that you leave the house early in the morning, may sneak in while you are away and steal the silver."
