CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 11 November 1893
C R I K E T. - The wicket was in good order on Saturday last, the threatening rain having kept off, when the Juniors paid a visit to Digger's Rest, and shortly after their arrival lost the toss to the home team. Consequently. Alick Gillon and Walker took the wood, and \VWash and Bert Eadie the leather. In the former's first over Alick hit what lihe considered a single but Walker failed to reach his crease. The umpire was ap pealed to, and the decision was given against the batsman. lMurphy filled the vacancy. Walsh in his next over scattered Alick's stumps with a beauty 2-0--0. Lines joined \lurphy at the wickets but the latter was not, how ever, destined to make a big score, for, after scoring 2 off Jim Walsh, he was cleaned bowled with little Berts first ball E. Whelan took the vacant crease bu' Walsh in the first ball of his over to th," batsman secured ano'her wicket. 4-0 -4. With such men as A. Gillon and t,. Whelan out, matters did not look any too bright for the home team. J....

As she ~arted from the curb at a busy 'junction tiar' the Brooklyn City fall she gave a" pert glance at a well-dressed coloured man T who happened to halt beside her, and he turned to cross the street, too.

MOTHER'S PIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 18 November 1893
IOTHER'S PIES. I've toiled and tried and worried,' I've gone the cook-bocks thr~m~ h, Till my brain is tired and flurried, And my bands and Fatienca, too. P've had the best instruction From the ablest cooks in town, And my pirs are crisp and dainty And delicately brown, But apples, mince, or meat pies, Of any form or shade, Are nothing to my husband Like the pies his mother ma'e. So I'll give the struggle over, And throw my pride away, But as sare as I'm a mother I'll be avcnee I some day. 3Iy bonnie lads are growing, And they'll not be afraid To tell their future spouses What , s f~:ir mother made. Advice is like counterfeit money. NMost p p!e are ready enough to part wl:h it, bu: none care to take it,

MR. BIGLER'S FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 18 November 1893
MR. BIGLER'S FENCE. I had just arrived in a nountain town on the Cumberland River, and after supper walked around to Ece it. On i.s edge I found a very nice frame house, well p .intet an I in good condition generally, but with a strong poet and rail fence around it. It seemed so inappropriate that I stopped to look further and as I did s" a man came up the street to the norncr where I stood. "Whose house is that ?" I inquired, afthr saluting him. " Purty nice place, ain't it ?" he answered. "Very, but I don't see why he has that kind of a fence around it, whoever he is." " It's J )hn Bigler's."

WHAT DODGES ! [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 18 November 1893
WHAT DODGES! By means of cleverly worded advertise ments or alluring prospectuses, the man with more wit than principle -lives very comfortably at the expense of honest folk. One of the latter class recently heard that a certain firm would give one hundred and thirty-five useful household articles in re turn for one dollar and the names of ten persons to whom catalogues could be sent. tie sent the money, and received by return mail one hundred and thirty-five sewing needles, worth in all aboct twenty-five cents. Even the consignee had to acknow ledge that each one of the one hundred and thirty-five needles was a "useful household article," but he felt he had been swindled and made the "matter public. 'lids scheme, which apparently does not come directly under the law governing the obtaining of money under false pretences, recalls several others of a similar nature. One of the most barefaced and at the same time, one of the most alluring offers, was made several years ago by a pictur...
THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 18 November 1893
THE :LADIES' COLUMN. Although msny have predicted that the wide skirts would no longer be popular, still the'new styles show no diminution in this respect, being. quite as "wide, and in some instances even wider than those seen uip to the present. The crinoline, used as an. inter-lining, is still being continued, and is a great improvement to all full skirts. It is not the stiff unyielding fabric known by the same name in the days of our grandmothers, but merely a moderately fine muslin that has been stiffened. Silk frills around the inside of the skirt or sometimes ruffi ts, are to be seen in all the new skirts. Some of those for evening wear are trimmed with one, two, or even. three frills of lace round the inside, instead of the silk. Skirts with many gores have been introduced, though it is evident that they are not favoured to any extent, except for narrow-width goods. Some skirts are made in two or three tiers, each tier being cut separately, and in some having a seam only in ...

Its advan tsges are manifest and its .aintiness d-tracts nothing from the handsome appearance of the wearer.
ENCOURAGE TALENT IN CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 18 November 1893
ENCOURAGE TALENT IN -CHILDREN. Nearly every ciild is endowed by nature with a faculty or aptitude for some special work, varying as the temperaments and in dividualities differ in each member of the family. It is here that-the fine discernment and discriminating judgment of the parents Should be exercised to ovokc talent, to en courage and foster its manife3tation by every means calculated to briLg it to perfection. Is it musical ability ? Then see to it that the patient drudgery of daily practice is honestly performed by personal swpervision, for it is natural in: children to shirk labor. Whatever the bent-3ven if opposed to the parent's desires-if decidei talent or skill is evinced, it should be cultivated in a prac tical manner for contingent practical neces sities,

THE BITER BITTEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 18 November 1893
STHE BITER BITTEN. The folio wing amusing story is told by a man who attempted to play a practical joke, but was nonplu?sed in a very unexpected way. He says ' I am very particular about fastening the doors and windows of my house. I do not intend to leave them open at night as an in vitation to burglars to enter. Yoli see. I was robbed once in that way, and I never mean to be again; so when I go to bed I like to be sure that every door and window is securely fastened. Last winter my wife hired a bit, strong country girl, and the new.comer was very careless about the doors at night. Oc two or three occasions I came down stairs, to find a window up or the back door unlocked. I cautioned her, but it did no good. I there fore determined to frighten her. I got some false whiskers, and ne night, about eleven o'clock, I crept down the back stairs to the kitchen where she was. She had turned down the gas msd was in her chair by the fire, sound asleep, as I could tell by her breathing; but ...

In. spite of his unkempt appearance and his poor fa.ted elo:hes there - was'a.certain bobility in his face that could not but atti act the casual observer. He- sat in the. ante-room of the police court; together with a score of other prisoners. Upon his knees he held a little girl, whose nncared-far appearance could not h'ide her childish prettiness. She leaned against his breast, and on her head there fell no,v and th n a great tear.

"T TAKING THE BUD. If the selection of the growths at the '" first break" was a ditficulty to the be ginner; very much more so will he find the " taking of the bu.'" I cannot now do better than giie the remarks of 'Mr Edward 1Molyneux in his excellent work, -' Chtysaiithenunis and their Culture." On this item he says :-" If there is one detail in the cultivation of the chrvyan t.hemum for large blooms that is of ut re importance than any other, it is taking the buds." Some persons may think this means pinching off the fiower buds, but this is not so ; it is removinlg of the ecowth sho)ts which fori aroitad the flower bud in the fronds of the branches (Similar to that which caused the -first break.'--W.S.)
