LOOKING AHEAD. Mother: " Laura, you ought to make that young man of yours go home earlier." Miss Laura: "But we are engaged, mamma, andI don't see why-" Mother: "You will get him into habits of staying out late that you will be sorry for some day, after the honeymoon is over." What.letter is that which is in visible, but never out of sight ? The letter I. Why is swearing aloud like an old coat! 1.'J a bad habit. Why is there no such thing as a whole -.y ?

DRIVEN ASHORE. Boom ! [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
Boom I I iiishalf-pist five in the morning, and the little town lies fast asleep in the dark ness. AllU night long the wind has been rushing dead on shore; the air is full of the sound of it. Through the sweeping and tearing of the blast suddenly beats the heavy boom of a gun. There is only time to rouse yourself and wonder what it means, when Boom I There it comes again. As you hasten to the window the quivering rush of a rocket tears through the air, and for one brief mo ment lights up all the little place lying widespread below. It is the signal to call the crew of the rocket apparatus. All over the town lights begin to twinkle. Voices call to each other through the darkness; heavy footsteps tramp past as the men turn out in hot haste. Somewhere out in the thunderous dark of the ocean a'ship is in distress and men in danger. Look I As you strain your eyes into the thick gloom a faint blue light shines out-flic?? - -oes out. It is a cry for help. Alreab + s nals of distress have b...

THE VEGETABLE FLY OF THE WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
THE VEGETABLE FLY OF THE WEST INDIES. One of the most curious natural pro ductions of the West Indies is I.se famed vegetable fly,an insect about the size and colour of a drone bee, but without wings. In the mIonth of May it buries itself in the earth and begins to vegetate. By the beginning~of June L sprout has issued from the creature's back and made its appearance above the surface of the ground. -By the end of July,the tiny tree (k:nown on the island as the fly-tree) has attained its full size, being then about three inches higl', but a perfect tree in every particu lar, mauch resembling a delicate coral brinch. Pods appear on its branches as soon as it arrives at its full growth These ripen and drop off in August. Instead of containing seeds, as one would naturally suppose, these pods have from' three to six small, hard worms in the interior.

IS THE RACE DECAYING? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
IS THE RACE DECAYING? Until the discoveries of the bones of the cave-dwellers and the d ift men it was quite frequently assume that the men of-aicient times were aller arit stronger than those of the p sent day. Poets wrote about the giants, and nursery tales abounded in adventures of races compared to which our people are pig mies. As a matter of fact, no skeleton of the prehistoric period appears to have be longed to a man whose stature was equal to those of our tallest men. Some skele tons found on the Mediterranean coast seemed to have formed part of men whose height was six feet; but by far the greater nuimber of bones found in the drift in France, Germany, and Belgium belonged to men who were about five feet six, and Whose strength, judging from their arm andleg bones, must have been less than that of a.strong man to day. The chances arethat the intellecttial force of our ancestors was as inferior to the intellectual force of the existiig races as their physical force. In work...
DOG FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
DOG FARMS. - The Chinese Empire is pre-eminently the country of fantastic trades.' The reason of this may be,that out-of-the-way avocations fall in with the strange tastes 'and habits of the "Sons of Heaven," or it may be that the celestials have the good sense to turn to account materials and products unutilised by othercountries and peoples. In any case the Chinese possess nmistakably the genius of com merce, and contrive to make the most of everything that offers itself to their great commercial activity. It is in Manchuria, that isto say, in the most northern part of China,. that the cultivation of dog-fur reaches its highest development, and here it was that the industry had its birth. Every year,in the port of New Chevang, an important traffic is carried on in cloaks and carpets made of dogs' skins. We have advisedly- used the word indrritry, for they are not stray dogs-any sort of dogs-which furnish the material for these articles. This may have been the case at first, irut i...

Kings, Lords, and Commons. ENGLISH LESSONS FOR AUSTRALIAN LEARNERS. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
Kings, Lords, andt Commons. ENGLISH LESSONS FOR AUS TRALIAN LEARNERS. [BY 'HisToIucus." (Continued.) - "Like Father, like son," is. rn old adage which may bh generally good in the case of common people; but in the developement of hereditary rule, the pro verb but seldom obtains; a?:l forms one of the strongest reasons why not only kings, but lords if indeed we must have them, should be elected. Again. and agqin, the pages of history portray the facj, that after a vigorous king comes a week one; after a wise, a fool, and thtough the practice of breeding in and in, the majority of royal families are phy sically and mentally unsound and carry with them the elements of their own rapid extinction. The English House of Lords, so much in evidence to day bears ample testimnoy of Kingsley? sa4ing that, " Scrofula, gout, and mad Their vicious lives would speedily clear t1e ancient chamber were it not that teir ranks are frequently recruited by t4e Premier uf the day who is often compelled to ...

PLENTY MORE. A boy was rather rudely dragging along his younger brother one day. 'Take care of your little brother,' said a lady to him, ' you may hurt him, and he may die, you know.' 'Don't care,' was the unfeeling re spinse, 'I've got plenty more at home, and they're all a lot quieter than this one .

MY FIRST POSE. HOW IT FEELS TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED FOR THE FIRST TIME. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
MY FIRST POSE. OW IT FEELS TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED FOR THE FIRST TIME. "Not quite so soleinn, my boy," the artist said, after placing the two cold iron discs of the head-rest against my bumps of "hope." "Solemn '" I thought. Who wouldn't feel as solemn as. an owl an unmerciful photographer had ed two chunks of cold iron against L ewly-cropp:d pate, and twisted his ders about as he would those of a y Indian? "Solemn !" It seemed e that a Chinese prisoner awaiting piled more gloom into his benighted koul than I felt then. He shuffled around his camera and screwed and adjusted the thing until he got the muzzle pointing square a: me. He then asked me to smile. I didn't see anything funny, but I attempted it, though my features didn't seem to re spond readily. My cheeks wouldn't rise up in joyful heaps as they were wont to do when I smiled from impulse. They felt cold and dank. There couldn't have been much of the sunshine of the soul reflected in that counterfeit smirk-at least, it didn't fe...
