After a good dlt of valuable time had been wasted by ;Married team disputing over Gerber's in clusion, the toss was won by Chris Mc Master who decided that the Singles should bat, much to the disgust of the other side. One of the latter challenged the fairness of tue toss up, but Chris again proved victorious (more by sleight of hand than goodl Luc) and the M.rrie.t mina iook the fieldin thefull glare of the very hot sun.

THE PAIBIY BISHOP - *ifhltlley Iightime was a New Englanl nary of1turitan descent wbho preferred the blistle :ied excitemenet of sity life to the q'ister pleasures of the conitry. The Guidlu City of Manhittan being the oily s:?tlement in America that offered a metro pulitan existence, it came about that he -pent most of his time there. One after noon, as he was floating aimlessly down Fifth Avenue, invisible to others, but seeing everything himself, he noticed two beau Liful young ladies, who had picked up a kitten from a doorstep, Each girl, after kissing the kitten and pressing it against her cheek, handed it to the other, who fon died.it in a similar fashion: " That niust ba fan," thought Nightley.

Socialism Analysed. (Continued. COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

Socialism Analysed. By W. A. WATT. (Continued. COMPETITION* Another theory dominating socialistic philosophy is.the inherent evil of comfet ition, as it at present exists. The term " competition "is ambiguous and needs elucidation.. Socialists make a distinction between different species of competition. They affirm that there is one kind which means promotion to the successful com petitor, but not ruin to the unsuccessful. This they term emulation, and declare that it is pregnant with benefit to both competitors; rewarding the ability of one and stimulating the other to increased activity. This species of competition they say, can still be retained by under socialism, to the exclus:on of that kind whieh advances the few at the expense and degradation-of the many. Now since tile introduction of machinery the undoubted tendency is for manufactnre to gravitate into the hands of large cap italists. According to modern socialists this is due to fierce and implacable com petition. They re...

TREATMENT OF THE HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

TBEATMIENT OF THE HAIB. Luxuriant hair is to some extent an in. herited quality, and to a considerable ex tent it. belongs to. a healths constitution. But the hair can be cultivated; it can be made healthy and preserved in its natural colour until fifty with proper care and at tention. The first point is a clean scalp; thesecond entire freedom-not a pin, or a comb, or a twist, - or-a braid about-it; simply combed back from the forehead and hanging down behind, a ribbon confining it just behind and under the ears so as to pre vent it from roming forward over the cheeks. The first point is to. have it as freely exposedto the air day and night as possible, because the perspiration escapes in the form of sceam, and carries away the extra heat, and thus keeps the sealp healthy and cool and more clean than if confined with a kerchief or impervious ma terial. Whether covered or exposed to the air, as in squaws, there is one element alike tending io the preservation of the hair-itis undistu...

TERRIBLE TRAGEDY IN REAPA LFE. Here is a'terrible trigedy in real life, as touchingly told by a Vienna correspondent : " About ten years ago all Vienna was en thusiastic over a young actress, Josephine Wessely, who, a tradesman's daughter, had m-ade her way to the leading parts in Shakespeare's dramas, and was one of the chief ornaments oi the Imperial Burg Theatre. Notwithstanding her success she led amodest and retired life,; devoted her savings. to her family, -so thar; her father was able.to establish two largo businesses, and.was soon well enough off to invest some money in a house and large wine-cellar. Then Josephine 'Wesselnudadenly fell ill and died at the age of twenty-seven. Her portrait is in the Burg Theatre gallery, and many visitors gaze upon it between the -ctl. Those who envied the old shoemaker his daýiiter's success thought he had paid dear enough forhis stroke of.luck when she died.

SET A THIEF TO CATCH A THIEF. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

SET A THIEF TO CA'TOH A THIEF. The old saying is that 'there is honour even among thives,' seems to lead many persons to be believe that a higher sense of honour prevails among the light fingered gentry than is---possessed~-by other people," iemarked a well-known detective the other day. Now that is a sad mistake. Thieves are the best friends we hare in our line of work. Wie 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. IRep:eatedly we get a maninto a very tigbht place:, when, in order to help himself, he ig willinug'to help us" It is a very conrueon thing for prisoners to turn informers. Of course, there is a good reason for this so t of a display of virture; but it is ahlost a daily nccurence for thieves to coime to us withll 'tips' and infor mation that thley want to sell when there is nothiung to inluce them in do so ceaept a laudable desire to earn a lit...

Kings, Lords, and Commons; ENGLISH LESSONS FOR AUS TRALIAN LEARNERS. [BY "' HIsTORICUS."] (Continued.) HOUSE OF STUART. The Star Chamber in its doing has made a most nnenviable fame for itself. While during the continuance of the long parliament about four thousand per ished for so-called witchcraft. It is cal cslated by Barrington that during 200 years no less than 200,000 persons per ished for this crime. The Eng?ish of that day made history, and it would bj well for rulers if they reflected, the power that makes can also unmake ; they should beware of alienating by their vicious, grasping, and careless lives, that deep respect of the people, by whom alone kings rule. Let a people be really cared for by the occupant of a throne, and no guards will be needed nor rebellions feared, for strong in the love of a happy people, that light uporn the-throsn would .illumine, not desturoy.

GUY'S HOSPITAL AND ITS ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

G.LE'S ROSPJ.T.A.I..AND ITS ROMANCE. Fewpeople hinkV -r. would imagmine, that the splebbiid ihuildifig known to this generation aGGuiy's Hospital owes. its origin- its charitab!e origin-to the dis obedience ot a servant. Yet such is the fact. The sto-y is interesting, and can be briefly told. Mr. Thomas Guy was a bookseller. He carried on his business with considerable acumen at 'Number Orie, Cornhill '--a hiluse frequently al luded to, forming an angle with Lombard Street, and known as 'Lucky Corner.' Now it came to pass that the Exchequer, being in strailglitened circumstances in the reign of the great and good William III, could not pay ready money to the de fenders of the counitry; and the sailor, particularly, was obliged to put up with 'paper'-a debenture or ticket which 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 purc...

NOVEL-WRITING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

NOVEL-WRITING. The British novelist is a journeyman la bourer who works for Mr. Mudie. The divine and impassive laws of supply and demand regulate his output just as truly as they regulate the output of the collier or the slhoemuak.r. The public requires of the nove lisl a particular kind of literary ware; and the novelist makes haste to supply it, strictly according to pattern.-Grunt Allen. What a nice, jovial old man he is who talks of the wild deeds he did when he was young; but how society's hair stands on end if an old womantells of her youthfnl follies.

HE KNEW THE OW?VNEB. The late Judge Walker, of Aurora, Ind.., was, it is said, the personification of pom posity. He was pboud of himself, of his family, and of all his possessions. Illus trative of this trait of character a story is told of the old judge. Shortly before his death he kuit a splendid mansion on the high hill at the back of Aurora. He was in Irdinatelyproud of his house, which bould be seen for'miles up and down the river. One day be was returning home by steamer from Cincinnati. The judge no sooner taught sight of his residence than his whole lttention was fixed upon it. He wondered if everyone else appreciated the beaut)y and striking location of the house.. Finally he walked up to a stranger and said-" I beg pardon, but--ah-can you tell me who is. the owner of that--ah-palatial and bean tiful mansion on the hill ?" " Yes, sir,"replied the stranger, promptly. " That ol barn be!ongs to Judge Walker, thie biggest old fool in Indiana, although he thinks himself a sage....
