Oricket. (Se rt~aries wishing to 'have their reporte inserted should send them into the office not later than Tuesday in each week.] NORTH MELBOURNE v. SOUTH MELBOURNE, The clubs resume l their match on Saturdsy afternoon, when the Scuth, who on the pre vious Saturday had 3 wickets for.142 runs, were all disposed of for 294. Sam Morris contributed 41' (ntPout);. and it was hard luck for him that .hi partner (Smith) was throw out by Jack Gerber, when he, Morris, only wanted two runs to gain a bht promised by Mr. E. D. Heather in the event of his making tha half century. J. Gil er played a good inningd for 34, and in conjunetion with Ingleton deserves credit for the plucky man ner in which they played. In score was 43 compiled by good-and vigorous cricket. J Trott had only made a single on the continuation of his ini-gs. and when cutting at a fast rising ball from Maplestone, he gave Ming the opportunity of effecting a magni ffsent catch, great was the j~y of the North erns to see him...
THE GRAPE AND THE TOMATO. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 February 1895
THE GRAPE AND THE TOMATO. The Western Mail is rcsponsiblo for the following strange story:-" A most singuolr growth has taken place this season in a small conservatory attached to Portearreg Cottage, the residence of Mr. Howell Howells, en Mayor of Carmnarthen. A vine branch, bear ing a goodly supply of fruit, drooped from the glass roof, and several of the grapes hung alongside some tomatoes that grew -lose to the wall, and one of the grapes ap pears to have fallen in love with the form of a tomato which grew nearest to it-nearly a couple of feet off. Gradually the grape be g?- to assimilate itself to the shape of the tomato, and persevered until it became the esx-ct picture of it in everything but size and solour. Every llne of indentation, down to the little cavity on the end furthest from the dem, was faithfully copied. It did not, of course, reach the magnitude to which it aspired, but it is more than twice the size of the other grapes on the same twig." An Irishman, who wa's a...

The-Rechabites!LReason. In Easte a on by erelied an aged man, Who gave etoman aments to-hissosu d thus his precepts ran: My sons, if now my words have power, .let uar oldienceprove, Your safety in the path of life, wheln death shall me rel * Build ye no house, sow ye no seed, nor vineyarda ti i e Through all the changing scenes of life, beware y6 drin p eine.

SThen Rechab's sons obedience gave, unto their father's word, Nor hailded house, nor planted vine, put did as they had heard. While time whose chas'ening finger now, had dimned the patriach's eye, . Gave warning of the approaching hour, when Jonadab must die, The ancient sire, whose glaring eyes shewed the approach of death, Then called his sons, and blessings gave, with his expiring breath; T-ien as the " spear of Azrael" fell, they made the parting sign, And with accordant voice there rose,...
Public Library Retrenchmen [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 February 1895
Public Library Retrench t ::would appear as if the trustees of the Public Library entertain a strange way of affording assistance to the over burdened taxpa)er in the way of retrenchl ment. The presence of tsio Iuniformed men, in the garb of policemen, doing simultaneous duty in the building has latterly directed attention to their neces sity, when, heretofor, one official was found sufficient to guard the institution and scare ]the scmvolent student. It seems however, that the "policemen" are not policemen at all ;but two retired constables who, pruned offMr. Chomley's branch of the service with compensation and pension respectively, have grafted themselves on to Dr. Bride's rose bush. Some time back the trustees asked to be relieved of the extravagance of paying the chiefSecret-jy's Department for the services of a constable. In his place an ex-constable vho had been paid a lump sum as compensation was found willing to again employ his remaining energies to the seivice of his blee...
