FICTION AND FACT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
FICTION AND FACBT. There is rarely a circumstance or char Ster invented by the imagination that does not find its parallel in real life. A year or more ago, a writer described in a story the adventures and vicissitudes of an erring lad who ran away from home to follow . the sea. The tale was pure fiction, and the author invented for his young sailor, a name unlike any he had everheard. - Soon after the story was published, its author received a pathetic letter from a. sorrowing mother, saying the sailor boy in the story was her only son, and bek ging for his address. "'Tell him, she wrote, " if he will on come home I will forget and forgive al the past. I am(alone in the world; ai if my dtr son t,?ll but return4to 'me It wa, hard to write to this poor moth' er that/the sailor boy of the story$ whose name, adventures, and life, so closely resembled her son's was but im agination. " While addressing a jury in a crimiti al case a few years ago," said a lawyer, " I made up the following...
MIGHTY WINDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 4 January 1895
MIGHTY WINDS. A surprising feature of Swiss avalanch ei ?s the blast of wind-the "Lawinen Dtnst--which precedes the snow mass vlike a messenger of death. In order to understand the force of this blast we must bear in mind that -hundreds of thousands of tons of snow are suddenly set in motion in contracted chasms. The air displaced before these solid masses acts upon objects in their way like breath blown into a pea-shoo ter. A woman was going to church, follow ing a valley path which some of her neighbours had taken a-quarter of an hour before. An avalanche-it must have been a very small one-came down the mountain. The blast which rushed be fore it was so strong that it swept her from the road, lifted her into the air, and landed her at the top of a lofty pine, to which she clung with all the energy of desperation. The snow rushed under her and left the pine standing. Her neighbours on their way back from church, found her at the top of the tree, and rescued her. blown up into the a...

Cricket. [Secretaries wishing to have their reports inserted should send them into the office not later than Tuesday in each week.] NORTH MELBOURNE v. SOUTH MELBOURNE. *The local senior team travelled to Albert Park last Saturday, and com menced a pennant match against the South Melbourne team. Owing to the heavy rain the previous day, Bean, on winning the toss, presented Messrs. Trott and Co. with the privilege of compiling a large score. The feature of the game was Maplestone's bowling, his fast deliveries being destructive on the heavy wicket; although, owing to the sandy nature of the soil, it is one of the best around Melbourne in rainy weather. The interest, either locally or from North was very small, only 200 or 300 people turning up to see the opposite ends of Melbourne contest the match. The North team has undergone some slight alteratio5 O incfne Fa Uuvursivty watch; Eslick and Thurgood have been passed over in favour of " Jimmy" Hewlett and Gerber. Howlett was only out o...

THE BIJOU THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
THE BIJOU THEATRE. " The Judge" has been cutting out the running at a terrible pace for the past three weeks, and certainly should be visited by everyone. It is a panacea for all the ills that flesh is heir to, Elton who has a pretty wit entirly furwears his per sonality in the character of Sir John Pye. The picture of the hypochondmiacal dis penser of justice is quaintly unctuous and not at all overdone. Messrs. Shine, Ireland, Diver, etc., and Misses Clara Thompson, H Ireland, Katherine Hardy, and Mrs Bryer play with a completeness of comedy exposition that should be seen to be believed.
