YANKEE YARNS. PRETTY FEET, AND HOW THEY SHOULD BE CARED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
YANKEE YARNS ?RPET LY FEET; ND JIOW TEY iFiOULD BE OIRED FOR. ' is Lrthse is written on the shbjectof feet, yet a pretty.foot, although. necessarily con-: cealed much of the time-unless its owner'is resolved to display it-is quite as powerful. a weapon in the armoury of beauty as a pretty hand.: A slender yet plump foot of moderate length, with short toes, smallheel and arched instep, is the ideal of beauty;, and although many well dressed feet appear to possess all these requirements, it will often be found that much 'depends upon .the dressing. A. pretty ,bare foot is a rare possessi9n, and' a. sculptor, a young and gifted woman, who had' attained eminence in her heart, said that she found it almost impossible to obtain a desir able model beyond the age of childhood. At' this period the charm of bare feet is a theme for the painter.and poet as well as the scrlp tor, and in mamma's catalogue of baby's attractions the canning little.pink toes are sure to play asx important part.

Baker to defend him. _ Bakr was just coming to the.front as a'=great criminal advocate; was young, ambitious. Lambornuwas prosecutor, and he, too was young and ambitious, and felt that Baker was a foemain worthy of his steel. The author of this sketch-Judge 3Matlieny- was then studying law with Baker, and was some'hat skilled in the preparation of defences and selection of juries, and at Baker's request went with him to the trial. The whole country was intensely excit ed. The trial had assumed a political aspect. The man on trial was a Whig, and the man killed was a Democrat, the party lines were closely drawn, and the friends of the dead man were clamorous for the blood of the man who had killed him. The court was crowded to its utmost, capacity. The jury were empanelled, and the eviden...

It is the signal to call the crew of the rocket apparatus. All over the town lights begin to, thinkle.

DO WE EAT TOO MUCH? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
DO WE EAT TOO MUCH? C OUNT TOLSTOI once expressed his views on the above quesion. His answer was emphatically "Yes," and in our opinion he is right. We eat more than we require. If you re quire proof of this, you can easily obtain it by substituting the usual tasty dinner by one which is not so good. Do you think that the amount consumed will be the same in both cases! Or suppose that you have for breakfast a rice fresh roll, which eats like a piece of c ,will you not eat more heartily than if a had to partake of bread- two or three asold. Gan it be alrd thit.f isaabsoh.tsl7 necessary to have several courses for dianer? After the second course we only eat for the sake of eating. There is no doubt that we eat more than enough to satisfy our - hun Ser. There is a kind of universal conspiracy to incite us to eat too much. Say that you think that (as a rule) one plate is suffeient to satisfy one's hunger, and you will be called an idiot. "What?" people will say. "not taste the tempting ...
WOUNDED IN BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
WOUNDED IN BATTLE. VERY few people, when talking so a soldier,says the Brussels La IlErne hose. who has been wounded in battle, fail to ask him what his feelings were when hit: every one is curious to know " what it is like." The answer is often disconceiting; the wounded man, in many cases,hadnot known that he was hurt until his attention had been called to the fact by his comrades. In the heat of battle the mental and physical faculties are so strained that thera is no room for physical sensibility, and men wounded in action generally feel less paon at the time than most of those who meet with accidents in the home, the workshop, or the street. Numerous instances can be quoted. A soldier, struck in the knee while on the march, continued to march with hie company quite unconscious of the wound until his comrades noticed that the leg of his trousers was saturated with blood; yet he had by that time lest so moch blood that he died. Another man was struck slightly on the armand severe...
SET A THIEF TO CATCH A THIEF. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
SET A THIEF TO CATCH A THIEF. The old saying is that 'there is honoos even among thives,' seems to lead many persons to be believe that a higher sense of honour prevails among the light Sngered gentry than is possessed by other people," remarked a well-known detective the other day. Now that is a sad mistake. Thieves are the best friends we have in our line of work. We get more assistance from them than from any other source; and I believe I should be warranted is saying all other sources combined. We often make one thief catch an other. Repeatedly we get a man into a very tight place, when, in order to help himself, he is willing to help us- It is a very commpn thing for prisoners to turn informers. Of course, there is a good reason for this sort of a display of virture: but it is almost a daily occurence for thieves to come to us with 'tips' and infor mation that they want to sell when ther is nothing to induce them to do so except a laudable desire to earn a little money. Jealous...
GUY'S HOSPITAL AND ITS ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
GUY'S HOSPITAL AND ITS ROMANCE. Few people think, or would imagine, that the splendid building known to this generation as Guy's Hospital owes its origin-its charitable origin-to the dis obedience of a servant. Yet such is the fact. The story is interesting, and can be briefly told. Mr. Thomas Guy was a bookseller. He carried on his business with considerable acumen at 'Number One, Cornhill "-a house frequently at. luded to, forming an angle with Lombard Street, and known as 'Lucky Corner.' Now it came to pass that the Exchequer, being in straightened cicumstances in the reign of the great and good William Ill, could not pay ready money to the de fenders of the country; and the sailor, particularly, was obliged to put up with 'paper'-a debenture or ticket whirl, the men were constrained to sell, and so sel ling, to lose on the transaction. Fre quently these buyers were in time com, pelled by necessity, to sell the tickets at an enormous discount, and the fortunate purchaser then oft...
CREMATION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
CREMATION. The Crenation Society of England is the purpose of practically demonstrating the best method of disposing of the body after death, and of disseminating infor mation the subject. It has, a therefore, nothing to do witc any religious rites of ceremonies that the relatives of a deceased person may think well to hold over the body. A funeral service may be held at any place of worship or at any place of resa dence before the conveyance ofthe body to the crematorium ; or, ii preferred, a religious service may be held in a hand some Gothic chapel erected on the spot. This is a red brick structure, with handsome mullioned windows, enriched with stained glass at each end. It isfir nished with chairs. In the centre is a bier, for the reception of the body about to be cremated, and there is a plain oak reading desk. Along the end of the building, and under one of the windows, are rows of niches, in which may be de posited urns-containing the ashes of the dead if the friehds of the ...
CHARLIE'S COURTING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
CHA1ILIE'S COUarLL*t. Young Charlie O'Niel cane to me one ay, And bashfully speaking he said: "You are older and wiser than emany know, And by your advice i'll be led. Now tell me how can I the question pro. pose To some pretty maiden I know ! I'm anxious to marry, but cannot, becaussý The asking it puzzles me so." I told him my thoughts, and urged him to' try The pleading a favour so sweet, "For life without love's like a field that in bare; With love-like a field full of wheat." When next I saw Charlie, so happy be seemed, - I asked him if love prospered so. He laughingly answered, " The pleading'bs so nice, "FI asked every girl that I know." -Century Magadsia
A SONG OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
A SONG OF HOPIS ?aE down the whndinglane of Years The weary world is slowly wending, Grim Walls of Fate and Gates of Tears To trembling prayers no answer send ing; a Yet through it all, sweet spirits call, Through lonely days of grief and ach 2ng "Hope's roses blossom on the wall, To keep the world's great heart from breaking 1" Across the sobbing Sea of Doom The weary world is slowly drifting. Eyes wet- with tears peer through the gloom, Yet see no sign of iest or rifting. Still angels bright, from some far height, Repeat throughhours of wearywaking "iHopes starlight shines through dark est night, - To keep the world's great heart from breaking I" O'er troubled waves, by paths of ruej Faint souls prs toward the Land of arnlon Burdened wjth crowes wet with dew, Fr tchii Getiea'mnane's lone garden; Yei to ant frm. now loud, now low, A roice is sweetest music making Ulope,singing on through pain and woe, To keen the world's great heart from breaking. -Sydne' Bdlldin.
SMUGGLING IN QUEER PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 11 January 1895
SMUGGLING IN QUEE 'PLACE& In a well-known hospital a woman lay dying, and on either side of her bed was a female friend watching her with sym pathetic interest. For a long time there had been silence, broken only by the rustling caused by the tossing of the sufferer's head from side to side. Pre sently the woman's lips moved. One of the watchers bent down, but no sound reached her. Pained that she had missed some solemn wish or dying message, the friend took up her old position. In a few minutes the eyes opened and the lips again moved. This time her mutterings could be distinctly heard. " Next time you come bring me some of the real old stuff." A pause. "And, if you love me, get it from Tommy Mor ris's." The woman never had her whisky k she died only a few hours after her friends had left-her. - to tilulstrate why it is that so much smug-' " " gling is carried on in connection with al) our public institutions.

Uricket. [Secretaries washing to h've their reports inserted should seed, the n into the office not later than Tuesday in each ieek.] t'ORTE MELBOURNE v. EAST MELBOURN E. The North Melbourne tirst Eleven had a very enjoyable day's outing at the ex pease of a team from East -lelboarne. The match was an " off" one not counting in the penant contest. At the same time it was of sufficient importance to bring any brilliant play under the notice of cricket ing authorities so that batsmen did all they kne* to run up scores while the bowlers and fielders tried their best to shine in thei," particular sphere. Ernie Bean was successful in the toss-up; the coin for a few moments seeming undecided but finally turned tall up which had been the North captain's chuice. It being only a "one day's" match Bean naturally de cided to send the East for field practice. The first to face the bowlers were G. Bean and Jack Hoilett who were:quite ":t husae with the bowling and seemed likely to mou opolise th...
