A TELL-TALE CLOCIK. Ex-Govtnor Connell, of New York, used to tell a story at his ownl expense.

One night, insteiad of making the usual inquiry, she ~.tsaid, " Alornz,, I wish you .. ould stop that, clock; I anntot .sleepl for itts noise."

FROM THE "BULLETIN." [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 5 January 1900
FIt6,A TIlE ' DULLETIN." :o: f The wife of an exciteable Irishman , in Raspheray Lanid lately discovered a snake prospecting her milk dis.hes, c whereupon her husband armed himself I with a club, and proceeded to argue with tle sarpint. As the assault and l batter' proceeded they were surprised s to see a lump rising in the reptile's in nerds, which? appeared to keep growing to the music of the whirling stick. c \Vhen he reckoned the reptile was about defunct; Pat held a post mortemu. Result--7)lbs. solid butter. London "Times " says the infoi-ma tion which led Methuen to fight the Boers at Magersfontein "was delibe- a rately false." That only proves that the Boers eice playing the game strictly. It is the business of every general to mystify, .:islead, and sur prise his opponent if he can, and it is t the business of the other fellow to take care he is not mystified and misled. War isn't run on pure George Wash ington principles. It is the biggest deceit of all the ages, and is not...

TOOLANGI. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 5 January 1900
TOOLANGI. -- --:o:- (From our Correspondent.) The clerk of the weather was in deed gracious to us on Friday last, for a finer day for our contests could not have been chosen. A slight delay took place at the start owing to the neces sary timber not being on the ground sooner, caused by the humbugging of the bullocky engaged to do the work; but once the programme commenced very little delay was observable. All the matches were confined to local talent, and as much zeal was displayed as though the stakes had been for large sums of money. The splitting niatchl was particularly keenly contested and excited the greatest amount of interest among the onlobkers, of whom there were a very large number iti attend ance. Many of those present were greatly surprised at what can be done with bush tools wheii handled by the class of competent men who competed in the different events. Appended is a list of the programme with the re sults : STANDING BLOCK, 18in. qho? First prize, 17s. Od. j second, ...
BUXTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 5 January 1900
BUXTON CASES. From bur Correspondent. The above races were held on Box ing Day, ahid wveie a great success. Rain fell diiiiig the afteirnoon, but not enough to render the course slippery. An unpleasant incident bccurred dur ing the day. Florrie; who was backed to win the Shire Plate, ran wide at the home turn; and lost a couple of lengths, but answering gamely to the Whip and spur, succeeded ih igeting on even terms with Dollj, and a fine race ensued. Florrie swerved just before reaching the winning post; and ran in side, and lost the race. Some of the sports (1) who had backed her to win a few shillings hooted and yelled for the stewards to rub the rider out. These officials, in ordei tb give him a chance to clear himself, called him before them. After fie _~inutes.de liberation the stewards declared theru selves perfectly satisfied that the mare was ridden to win, and the running off purely accidental. This did not give satisfaction to the " sports who lost their tin," and on Flor...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 12 January 1900
Business men should consider before sending away for printing to firms who have only their own welfare at heart and 'don't care how your own locality pro Sgresses, whilst the local printer has always to study the welfare of his own locality, by watching and recording any movement that tends to the advanccment of the dis trict as a whole. We don't blame the foreign printer at all, but the townsman, whose one aim should be to support local industry.whenever practicable, and in the inatter of his printing we can prove he hba no" get-away" at all. If he has his doubts let him give us a trial, and a con tiniance of his orders to di is assured

W~EAK, WEARY WOM.?EN.' HOW YOU SUFFER THIS WEATHER. :-. ENERGY AND AMBITION GONE. THE ABOVE ILLUSTRATES A MELBOURNE MOTHER'S CASE AWHILE .AGO. Summer means agony and suffering to most Australian mothers and sisters. Debility fol!ows the wake of loss of ap petite. and languor. Complications peculiar to the sex always crop up if the system loses tone, and the inevitable headache, throbbing in the temples, heart palpitation, dizziness, and other female ailments run :riot in the body. Mrs. Laura James, of No. 2 Rae-street, North Fitzroy, Melbourne, detailed her sufferings to a reporter of the "North Melbourne Gazette," as follows:--"For quite ten years," she began, "I have .been a sufferer from indigestion and 'be ehnduring agony if I.; had not had the good, fortune, to ^!have: tried Bile 'Beans. . And I can honestly say that a person suffering as I long suffered would be much better dead than alive. No 'food agreed with me. Even liquid nourishment made me suffer greatly, I dwindled awa...
BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 12 January 1900
BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES. A pathetic little, drama was once enacted in a court of justice. A poor needlewoman was charged with steal ing two sovereigns, from her-employer. Her defence was that, while waiting in her employer's house the child in her arms, unknown to her, was attracted by the sigh of the glittering gold on the mantel shelf behiind her, :and lean= ing forward over her shoulder, hadi clutched the ,coins in its chubby fist, and had so carried then? aivay. This she persistently and solemnily stated on oath.. Tihe court, however, were incredulous, and reproved the mother for her attempt to deceive. But she asserted her innocence with such pathetic power that• the sagacious judge determined to test the truth of her statement. He bade her stand bty his desk with the child facing over her shoulder in the way she had described. 'Then the tk several sovereignsw from his pocket, and placed tliem on the desk within reach of: the chiid.`A breathless 'silence ensued. Feryone waited t...

GEMS OF THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 12 January 1900
GEMS OF THOUGHT. Happiness was born a twin. Cowardice is the mother of cruelty. lird words mostly flow , from soft heads. Think with truth iand work with firmness. None is a fool always; everyone sometimes. If you would relish your food, work for it.. Debt is a horse that is always throw ing its rider. Love, like honesty, is more talked about than understood. The "faculty of genius' is the power of. lighting its own fire." -;R1any' peoplI. mean so be honest, but tihey live beyond their ,,eansi:'e Too many. ten .with bright futures before them are walking liackward. Endeavor evet rywheire to be useful, and 'then you. will be at home every where.' The love of m?oney imay he the root' of all evil, Ihut very little good can be effcted without money . 1 Features alolne cain never make a ,wouian handsome, any more than speech alone can make her witty, Mods sty, to- the fetiiale character, is what 'saltpetre is to beef-while it pre sierves its ourity,it iimparts a .blush. .

The minutes of the previous n~eeting having been read and confirmed, Mr. Lindupp said there was one thing that he wished to bring under the notice of the society, anc ithait was the actioni of the shire council ini plac ing blackberries under the Thistle Act. He did not think that for the sake of those who let "the berries grow' wild others who cultivated them for use should be -made 'to suffer, as wo'uld be the case if they wvere placed under the Thistle Act; He thought the council' should ?Ond-somie 'ther mearis to abate the difficulty, aind the so?'iety should' take the matter up before the Act is passed. Very often a hedge of black berries saved an orchard, as the birds would attack the berries andfeave tlhe other fruit alone. He moved that this soci.ty bring the matter before the council to see if the black...

Good Father above, and. so plentiful .are grapes. very few of His children need go without them. There ought not to ba.a house in the city.or country but what has a vine. trained against the wall, or on a trellis. Even without the fruit the leaves are. eautiful, but what a joy, before breakfast, to cut off a huInih with a blush antd dew still on and' eat it, even beforo the cup of coffee is considered, ' he scienitists say, as food for human beings there is nothing better in the vegetable world than ripe grapes.
