AN ANECDOTE OF HENRY CLAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895

AN ANECDOTE OF HENRY CLAY. Henry Clay, one of the most popular, American statesmen of his day, was travelling somewhere "out West," and put up for a night at a country tavern. "Mine host," in looking over the register; discovered the name, "Henry Clay." There was but one " Clay." Could it be possible that he had this distin guished man under his roof ? He was astonished, delighted. Next morning, as soon as the great man appeared, the ad miring Boniface bustled forward, and making his rude bow, said, "Mr. Clay, I believe, sir ?' "That is my name," said the gentle man, in his affable tone. "Mr. Clay, the Congressman 7" "Yes, sir." " Well, sir Irve heard of you, and I thought I'd just ask if you wouldn't give me and my old woman a speech before you go." Hair may be plaited and yet be golden. Man proposes; but the girl disposes.

VEGETABLE VAGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895

VEGETABLE TAGRANTS. Emerson somewhere describes a weed as a plant whose virtues we have not yet dis covered. Whatever we may know of its virtues, we think we are too well ac quainted with its vices; and foremost among these we set down in the indictment against it that it is too vigorous, it is diffi cult to kill, and not easy to discourage. We understand its virtues to include the ca pability of being turned to good account by man, either as food for himself or his do smestie animals, or in his manufactures. In either of these connections we should regard its vigour and cheerfulness as posi tive virtues; but should it possess showy or pretty flowers, then to be virtuous it should not be over strong, so that we might pot it; and pet it, and perhaps kill it, ad miring it the more in proportion to the difficulty of rearing it. It is quite clear that the possession of beauty is not all that is demanded of a plant, in order to lift it out of the catalogue of weeds. In addition, it must ...

Henry IV, in 1399, ascended the -throne of E.ogiand, and held possession of it till death released him in 1413. Be began his reign by perjury, and con tinued it with murder; but, alas ! per jury and murder was no disqualification for the office of king. This royal vaga bond was exceedingly jealous for holy church, and having intimated his inten tion to protect it against heresies, he caused his obsequious Parliament to pass a Bill called " De Haeretics Comburen do," by reason of which William Sautre priest of Lynn, was the first to suffer death by burning. By the provisions of -that infamous Act, bishops were now permitted to arrest and imprison all teachers-of jheresy, all schoolmasters, suspected of heretical teaching, all writers -and owners of heretical books ; and if these should refuse to abjure or relapse after abjuration, they were to be burnt upon some high p...

Mrs. Masterton sued her husband for arrear., amounting to £4 10s., due on a maintenance order. Mr. Daly, for the defendant, prevailed on the bench to strike out the arrears, which was done on the condition that the weekly payment of 10s. should be regular. THF-EATENING LANGUAGE. Sarah Greenwood accused Mary McLean of using threatening language towards her. Mr. Lyons, who appeared for the defence, denied the charge, and said that the nearest approach to a threat was the hope of Mrs. McLean that the " hand of God would be heavy o0 Mrs. Greenwood within a month." This, he said, was a prayer. He then put three witnesses in the box to prove that no threat had been used. The bench, after considering, said case would be dismissed without costs.

It was not long before the youths spotted the lady, and as is usual with the class to which they belong, they immediately fell to work criticising her to each other under cover of their knowledge of the art of telegraphing.

A WHITE NIGGER. Aremarkable freak of Nature, the ex planation and origin of which is unknown; is apparent in Solomon Teury, the"white nigger" of Caston's Panopticum at Ber lin. This young man, now 22 years of age, was born in Sierra Leone, of black parents, and although possessing the features of the negro type, his skin is white,and his crisp, curly and abundant -bair yellow as straw. - Solomon is the only white child of the -parents, the other members of their family being black lika themselves. He speaks perfect English, and is exceedingiy bright and intelligent. -Stuttgart Iliusi,$rte Welt. Tne man who constantly stands on his di nityis liable to sear it out.

HOW STATUES ARE CARVED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895

HOW STATUES AkE CARVED. Everybody is familiar with the work ing methods of the Paiinter, the Archi tect, or the Photogimpber, liut -very, few people have more than 'a. hazy idea as to the means which a Sculptor uses in the various stages of fashioning statues. There is many a Sculptor who has never had a mallet or chisel in his hand, depite the fact that these are con sidered the indispensible implements of his art. The real difficulty of his, as' of all other arts, is the realisation ofr the ideal which the mind of the genius has evolved. To do this, repeated trials - and failures are necessary, and therefore the material on which the sculptor does his real work-must be something much more plastic and manageable than the un yielding - bronze and marble. The master artist works not in stone or metal but in modelling day, a grey greasy kind of earth not unlike glaziers' putty. Like every other artist he uses a sketch as the foundation of his work. This fixes his ideas and from it he ...

Other clasical writers make mention of it Dioskorides writes very innocently about it: he says the name of sugar is given to a kind of honey which is found in canes, and is not produced by bees. Strabo writes to the same effect, and adds that when solidified it resembles salt. -- The sugar cane was introduced. into Sicily in 1148, and soon afterwards into Spain. About sixty years later ...
