AVOIDING THE UPPER CUTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 June 1894
AVOIDING THE UP'PER 'UT S.. The Rev Dr"Wace anid Professor Huit ley have been engaging in a religious controversy ih hwhich they have shown, great skill in avoiding each other's blows: As thus;-for instance:- " Huxley : Pretty bad business abot\t those Gardarene pigs, eh, doctor? . Wace: Never mind those pigs, profes sor. Just look at the Sermon on;'the Mount. Huxley : Humph ! I can prove that: it. wais the sermon on the plain ; but, conme riow, just see whdt science has done. Wace: Oh, :\eil, )ou are .only; an infidel, and youi know it; so what's the ute of talking about it. Huxley: I don't care if I am; so there. Then somebody takes the whole thing to a printer, so that we can all witness the fight. And the Christians shout "Hooray forWace," and theinfidels exclaim Bully for Huxley," and that is all. Ono who knows RIs: .tThe man who is excessively urbane to his wife before strangers is also her band t liind..'tdii? backs!" - Being askiied what made. im so dirty, an.: unvashed stre...
A "T" TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 June 1894
A "T" TRAGEDY. The thunder threatened, the tempest tossed the trees.. throwing their trembling trunklets topsy-turvey. Tripping towards the town, Theresa thought " To-night Theodore treads the tiresome thoroughfares, thinking things that-" Thud ! The terrified truant turnel to trace the threatening ttrnloil. There towa-ds the tollgsate tramped Theo. dore trying to throttle two thieves. "Take to the timber, Ti'erea !'" thundered Theodore. "Tell that to timid things," thought Theresa, treadin:g tiger-like towards the trio. Then, telling Theodore to throw the taller thief, Theresa taking t'other's togs, tied through the thickness the thief's throat. Thus terminated the terrible trorbles that threatened the twain. They murned trium' pantly to-town to tell the tale. To-morrow ties them together! A man asked for admission to a chow for half-price, as he had but one eye. But the manager told hinm it would take him twice as long to see the show as it would anybody else and charged him doubl...
NOT IN HER LINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 June 1894
NOT IN HER Ll E. A marked trait of the peasantry of West moreland, among whom the poet Wordsworth lived, is a native love of truth, which neither anticipate.: the answer a questioner would like, nor e':presses sympathy with a sentiment they do not feel. An old woman who had been in Words worth's service was keeping a lodging house at Grasmere. One evening a lady, on re turning from a walk, said to her, .' Oh, Mrs. D- , have you seen the wonderful sun set?" "No, Miss I-- ," answered the o:d lady, drawing herself to her fuil height; "I'm a tidy cook, I know, and they say a decentish body for a landlady, and sic like, but I doan't knaw nothing about sunsets or them sort of things; they ve never been in my line.

HINTS FOR HOUSEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 June 1894
HINTS FOR HOUSEKEEPERS: If the fat in the frying kettle is hot before you are ready for it,.put in a dry crust of bread. It will not burn as- long as it has something to do, only.when it is left idle. It is convenient to have an iron holder attached by a long string to the band of the apron when cooking; it saves burned fing;rs o- scorched aprons, and is always at hand. A spatula or palette knife is the best thing for scraping batter, porridge, .etc., from the sides of bowls or pots: it is not expensive, and soon saves its cost i v Prcventing waste. Keep i clasp knife or a knife with a handle diierent fremn those in common use, for the &lt;olI purpose of peeling onions, and to avoid thei flavour and odour of them where it is neithe.r expected nor desired.

NAPOLEON'S FIRST LOVE AFFAIR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 June 1894
NAPOLEON'S FIRST LOVE AFFAIR. It is an old and well-worn story that of the young man who told his friend that he "might have had that girl," and when asked to explain, replied: " Well, I proposed to her once, and she said she'd rather be excused, and I, like a fool, excused her." And Napoleon's first love affair was very much the same. ' When Paul Francois Jean Nicholas Barras, the celebrated French revolutionist, first took. thepoor young officer, Napoleon Bonaparte, under his wing, he had a great liking and an intense admiration for him, and felt sure that he would one day be a great man. In order to succeed, however, Barras be lieved that he should have money; and re solved to find for him ai rich wife. SFor'some reason he pitched upon a woman for this position who, though very hand some, was no longer young. She was an actress. known as -Mdlle. Montansier, though she had been married, and was a widow. If is said of her that she knew ali the arts of the toilet to perfection, and ...

The wearied man responded:- " I feel discouraged." " Tut! You musn't give way to grief in that despairing way. You know what the poet sang-- Hope springs eternal in the human breast.' " "Ah, yes; but it ain't for me. When a man's seen what I've seen hope ain't for him." "Bless my soul, what can have hap pened ?" "I'11 tell you. Mayhap it will give relief.

Amelia was driving along Prince's Road with her father's carriage and a large blonde horse. She was alone. The horse saw aubakcr's waggon and began to shy. Amelia gave a ladylike scream, " Oh, please, won't somebody help re with this horrid horse ?" Percy heard it. He hastily jerked his hat off, and tapped his vest pattern a couple of times with it as a token of recognition and rushed out. "It were better fos that horse," thought Percy St. Vincent to himself, "that he had never been burn. I will throw him downman sit on hinm."

REMARKABLE RUNS ON BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 June 1894
REMARKABLE RUNS ON BANKS. Nowadays a run on a bank is quite as un usual occurrence. and when one does happen, the ease with which large quantities of spe- cie can be brought to the help of thu as saulted bank by employment of telegraph and express trains has the effect of making bankers better able to cope with an unusual demand upon their resources than was the case in earlier times. Those who have not witnessed a ran on a bank can hardly picture adequately to them selves the scene of lnad escitement and con fusion that the words imply. The doors of the bank are besieged by an eager crowd, each one trying his hardest to get in before those around him. Everc moment some ex cited individual, who has heard there is a run upon the bank in which his money lies, drives or runs up, and, afraid of losing his all by being among the last to :rrive, makes strenuous efforts to force his way to the front. These who have succeeded in making their way through the door are pushing and shouting in ...
SUNSHINE AND SHADOW. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 June 1894
SUNSHINE AND SHADOW. Only a bank of weeds, of simple weeds, Of sweet wild thyme and yellow, scented broom, Of tangled grass, and slender wind-blown reeds Of brown notched ferns and tall spiked foxglove bloom. And yet a world of beauty garners there, Low-twitt'ring birds, soft scents, and colours fair. Only a narrow mound, a long, low mound, Snow-covered, 'neath a wintry, leaden sky, Unlit by moon or stars; and all around Through bare, brown trees the night-winds moan and sigh. And yet a world of love lies buried there, Passion and pain, bright hopes and doll despair. Oh, golden bank, where sunbeams glint and play, Bloom out in fragrance with a hundred flowers ! Oh, narrow mound, keep till the judgment day The mournfui secrets of these hearts of curs ! Then in God's light let joy and sorrow fade, For near His brightneos both alike are shade. -C. L. Pirkis, in Te'mple Bar.
Astronomy. THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 June 1894
Astronomy. THE SUl. BY J. GLessoN. From the earliest times, even unto pre-historic ages, attention has been given to the heavenly bodies by the greatest men of all times, and rightly so, for is not the son himself (our life) a heavenly body, and the light and life of all the planetary atoms circling round his glorious orb. What if the Sun ? Well, to give a description of the sun as seen by day. would not be difficult, ppeaking broadly, but to give a tele scopic analysis of the different composi tions contained in the sun would be just the reverse. Of course, being such a bright body, one cannot study it with the freedom with which he can observe the less luminous planets; indeed, al though dark-coloured classes and other contrivances have been invented from time to time, there is yet much to be done for the convenience of the astrono iner who observes by day. 'Carrington, the celebrated English authority on matters connected with the sun, used to observe in the following manner: Fix...
