On Tuesday night,t he Meehanics' Hal was kept going with a bill consisting of many amusing and taking items, staged by The Baby Nicholls Tourist Company, who have just commenced a month's trip into the country. There was a fair attendance, and the weather was all that could be desired. The prices were low and good value was given for the money. The company started the pro gramme nicely by an overture, which included organ, tambourine and bones, while Aubrey Douglas and Wil. Walka;ns chipped in cith " Honey Suckle's and Maggy Murphy's Home" in first-class style. " You're welcome old boy," and " Drink up boys," were also included, and Douglas and Watkins wound up the ovcrture by contributing a duet and dance entitled "The Jubilee" Johnny Edwards supplied, " I'll say no more to Marry Ann," with a fair amount of diversion.

THE UNLUCKY STONE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893
THE UNLUCKY STONE, mE Fo bel From my earliest recollection we had un travelled, travelled the world over, it seemed, my mother and I. We had no kith nor kin de but one another, so can the world wonder sh that we were all in all to each other? My th alother's face, although. the sweetest and; 0 gentlest of faces, was always sad, even RE gloomy at times. She always wore the in deepest of mourning for my father, although sa I could never get her to mention him. And as after several inquiries I ceased to trouble her, for such a look of pain and agony ro would come over the dear features at the wi mention of Robert Radcliff. The only jew- ril ellery she ever wore consisted of two rings, a be plain gold wedding ring and a beautiful opal I set in a heavy band of gold. And when- a ever in a crowd or conversing with pe a stranger I would notice my mother looking de at her opal ring, which she wore on the m third finger of the right hand. Through Asia, nI Europe, America, and even to Africa a...

LORD BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893
LOrLD BYRON. There has been much foolish talk abouit attempts to reinstate Byron and their inevi - table failure, as though he were a sort of Humpty Dumpty whom not all the King's horses and men to boot will ever restore to his proud eminence. It is not exactly clear whence he has fallen or where it is proposed to replace him. It is not to be supposed, by anyone but a fool, that his name will ever again be a name to conjure with, or that his poetry will ever again bear the influence it bore in his life-time. The potent personality of Byron counted for so much in his poetry that when the present magic of that person, ality passed it was inevitable that something too should pass from his poetry. But if those foolish talkers mean that no one any longer cares for Byron's poetry, that it is now finally decided that he is not really a poet at all, that, in short, the poet is as dead as the man, they are foolish indeed. People read Byron now with cool heads that is the only difference. The...

A CHINESE BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893
A CHINESE -:BANQUET.':" -Mr. George Kehnan, who trvcelled through Siberia and China in` i887, has been lecturing on his adventures 'in the United States. He gives -the follo&ving account of a Chinese dinner to which he had the honour to receive an invitation : The first course consisted of seaweed boiled. Then followed a course of shreds of cold meat in jelly; another of mush rooms; still another of salad onions; then thin slices of sausage apparently, followed by a dish composed of eggs. These were succeeded by crawfish tails, and the final course of cold dishes was evidently a long fronded seaweed. Be tween each course a servant filled small cups set by each plate with hot rice brandy. The first of the hot courses served was meat-dumplings, which Frost (my companion) believed to be dog, and objected to on that account. The rest of the dinner consisted of about a dozen courses, and was completed with- nuts, sweetmeats, and champagne. Next day. I was taken sick, and was very...

HINTS FOR THE COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893
HINTS FOR 7HE COOK. When meat is to be boiled for Ferving at table, put it into boiling water at the com. mencement Df cooking, by which its juices are preserved. But if it be desired tc extract these juices for soup or broth, cut it in small pieces, put into cold water and simmer slowly. In cold weather a leg of mutt n is greatly improved by hanging for a week. When meat is hanging change its position frequently, to distribute the juices equally When boiling tough meat, a little vinegar added to the water improves it. Broiled meats should never be dishrd up on a cold plate, nor salted until after the3 are broiled. Fish which has scales may be freed from them by dipping quickly into boiling water, when the scales may be iemoved easily. .Let the water for making coffee boil briskly for half an hour before using it. Many "made dishes" are even more palatable than when first cooked. This applies equally to meat and vegetables; consequently there is rarely anyneeessity for cooking other...

If you contemplate a trip to the North Pole, do not mention it.
