SLIPPING HIS CLAWS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

'*.LIPPING HIS CLAWS. One or the difficulties which the keep ers of certain wild animals in ajnnsenms and other.coilections have to contend with is the tendency of the claws to grow into the flesh, in the absence of the wear and tear which they receive in the ani mal's wild state. A wild bear,forinstance uses his claws so much in climbing that thi'ey are not only kept sharp for use, bht ar worn down to a proper length. Do- mesrtic cats know -the necessity of this - prbocess, and may often be seen scratch ing vigorously onthe bark of a tree for no other reason than to keep down thlir claws. .Sometime back in the Museum 6f Nifima History in the Paris Jairdin des Plantes, it became necessary thus to trimn the dclaws 'of a-young bear of great strength,-cnning, mid- irascibility.- But the animal would not permit-lhinself to be fouched. *Strnt~gy waai resorted (t *-The cages of the museum communicate with one anpther bymeans of trap doors.

WHY HE CARRIED IT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 February 1895

* -- ·7wEYHE: CARRID IT. Somefew years since, residents of the little village of S--- prided themselves upon the beauty of its principal." street," its over-arching trees, its well-kept walks, and general neatness. Only one thing was lacking; there were no street lights. Fi nally some public-spirited'residents sug gested the purchase of a dozen lamps. The idea met with general approval save from one'old man, lr. Black,;who made it a role to object to'eve~j-thing that he had not suggested himself. He declared the pro jest a foolish extravagance and lo?ldly pro tedited against it. -But the lamps were purehased and set at regular distances along the village street. Each lamp was to be cared for by the per son near whose house it stood. This arrangement answered veryS ell, and t?ie' street was sufniciently well lighted, al though oeeasinally some one vould forget to light his lamp. Mn. Black evidently did not think so.

Gansp, his immortal nurse, that if she didn't stop whisp~ring funny things to him, he would leave her out of print altogether; and there have been other writers of fiction who have even thought and spoken of their characters as if they were more real than reality itself. Edmund Gosse has told us that he wras one day talking with Robert Browning of some common acquaintance. The poet seemed to take but a languid interest in the conversation, but suddenly broke into.a vivid and passionate apology of an act of his own" Colombe," a favourite. charactlir from oneof his poems. The novelist Balzac also found it hard to transfer his interest from fiction to actual life. All his men and women 'were his actual associates, whether as enemies -or or beloved friends.

CHILDREN'S MINDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 February 1895

CHILDREN'S MINDS. Children commence life, not indeed as sheets of blank paper on which we may. write at will, but with every variety of temper and inclination for good and for evil eqcueathed to them by those who gave them birth. The education which fails to recog nise this is radically defective. The ex ternal forces employed to train a child are soccssfult only as *they are adapted to draw out, to guide or to restrain the internal im pulses. Unless we discover what these ixI pulses are and are likely to become, unless we take pains to acquaint ourselves with their origin, their nature, and their prob.lble results, we are not fit to take part in the guidance of a youthful mind. Most of the failures of educators proceed from ignoring thea factsr Printed and Published oy A. E. BURGeEss BORN, for the Proprietor, L. L.

A COMPARATIVE MATTER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 February 1895

A COMPARATIVE MATTER. Age, like beauiy, is a matter of individual apinion. To the girl in her teens, the riper maiden of twenty-five seems quite aged.? Twenty-two thinks thirtj--five "an old thing." Thirty-five dreads forty, but con gratulates herself that there may still re main some ground to be possessed in the lifteen years before the half-century is at t:lined. But tily does not by any means 'ive up the battle of life. It feels middle a2ed and vigorous, and thinks old age along way in the future. Sixty remembers those who have done great things at three score; and one doubts if Parr, when he was mar- . iesd at ono hundred esd t.wratv. had at all begun to feel himnself an old man. It is the desire of life within us which makes us feetl ousng so long. If we lose that, old age soon tnakes possession of us, mind and body.
