INTERESTING SERMON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

.INTERESTING SERMOn:. --- ? BY THE RtEV. W. 0. FORD. The use and abuse of amusements, with' particular reference to dancing, was the subj.Ect of discourse of the Rev W. Charles Ford at St Mary's Church of England, Sunbury, on Sunday last. The sermon was preached from I Cor. X. S1. " Whether, therefore, ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." These words are, he said, the key-note ot christian action. They cover every possible relation, and they sanctify all. Nothing that we can rightly do is excluded-nothing is so insignificant as not to be included. All objective forms of christian life are herein summarised the Supper of the Lord,and the domestic meal, the crowning act of the church's worship and the commonest offices of nature, are all demanded by St Paul to be consecrated "to the glory of God." But in every age christian men have asked. Is this possible ? They have seen now liberty runs to licence. They have seen how asceticism degenerates into Phari s...

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

GRAINS OF GOLD. The-best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living. . " The tongue of a fool is the key of his counsel which; in a wise man, wisdom hath:ini keeping. We are born to be sociable to one an other;- therefore either reform the world or bear with it. It is' zot' in our open exposed deeds that we need' the still voice of the 'silent monitor, but in the small secret ever- day acts of life. A face which is always serene possesses a mysterious.and powerful attraction - sad hearts come to it as to the sun to warm themselves ag in. It is better to be a good tailor than a wearisome preacher, a smart shoemaker than a stupid lawyer, a dexterous carver than a blundering politician. One of the old philosophers says. that.i is the part of wisdom to sometimes seem a fool; but in our day there are too many ready-made ones to render this a desirable policy. Never to tire, never to grow cold, to-be patient, sympathetic, tender; to look for, tse budding flower and t...

HOW IT'S DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

HOW IT'S DONE. SaENE-Interior of newly-erected' building. Present, the builder and a surveyor, the former looking timidly foxy, the latter -knowingly pompous, and floridly self-im portant. Builder, in dusty suit of dittoes, carries one hand in his breeches pocket, where he chinks certain metallic subs stances-which may be coins or keys-ner vously and intermittently. Surveyor, a burly mass of broadcloth and big watch chain, carries an intimidating note-book, and a menacing pencil, makingmems. in a staccato and stabbing fashion, which is singularly nerve-shaking. Surveyor. (speaking with his pencil in his mouth)-Well, Mister-er-er-er-Wotser name, I-er-think-'m, 'm, 'm-things seem to be pretty right as far's I can- see; though of course Builder (hastily)-Oh, I assure you I've taken the greatest pains to conform to-er rules in-er-in every way; though if there should be any little thing that ketches your oyo, why,-yoavo only bo-- . . .

THE MAN YOU CAN HELP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

THE iAN YOU CAN HELP. There are plenty of men who will grasp your hand, With a pleasant, cordial smile ; There are plenty of men who will pass you by, In the most indifferent style. You may be "cut " sometimes by those Whom in boyhood days you knew; But a man will always treat you well, When he wants a favour from you. How glad is he that you look so well; And how do your children do ? Your wife is in good health, he trusts, And your business prospering, too He struck a new brand ot cigars to-day By the way, just try a few ! Oh, yes, a man will treat you well When he wants a favour from you. When the favour's done-alas I alas ! How suddenly he forgets How he loved you when he needed, perhaps, Your help to pay his debts; But the fast remains, and every one knows That this assertion's true : A-man will always treat you well When he wants a favour from you.

THE LITTLE GREY NURSE. CHAPTER I. THE GREY NURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

THE LITTLE GREY NURSE. By MAnR- LEIGH. CHAPTER I. THE GREY NURSE. It was a st ange chain of circumstances that led me to renounce my bachlorhood, and enter into the holy state of matrimony. I, John Martyn, M.D., M.R.C P., after thirty-four years of sweet, unrestrained liberty, in less than thirty-four hours, suc cumbed completely to the fascinations of a certain fair little woman of whom you will hear anon. "Come down for a week, Jack," Gregory Ormond had said that eventful December. "I know you enjoy a bit of shooting and hunting and I can give you both." I was extremely fond of both sports, but they were not sufficient to tempt me to spend the week with Ormond at his fine old place in H- shire. There was something about Ormond that clashed withemy finer feelings. He was very well as a club acquaintance, but I could never dream of classing him with my friends. Perhaps the ugly rumours afloat as to his private life had something to do with this prejudice. A man who is reported to ha...

CRICKET. SUNBURY V. BURNLEY CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

C R I ©-K E T. SU' BUtRY V. BURNLEY ORICKET OLTUB. ;After.outplaying their opponents at all pointi. Sunbury gained a handsome victory last Saturday on the Recreation Reserve, defeat;ng the visitors by 121 runs. The game terminated rather un pleasantly and was characterisedby our boys:as one of the most unfriendly con tests they have taken part in.. The iBurnley eleven knowing that their bats men would be unable to put up 162, this being the number of runs obtained I by the home team, decided to "kill time" I vrhich they did to perfection, but to any thing but their credit. At a few minutes to six o'clock, with one wicket to fall and the score at 41 the captain called upon his men to discontinue, batting regardless of the umpire's de cision that time was not up. Tiey I therefore forfeit the match as the rules distinctly say that " When an umpire I calls 'play' the side refusing to play shall lose the match. Bob. Eadie batted I most brilliantly for Sunbury, and played a faultess innin...

LADIES, TAKE EXAMPLE! [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 2 December 1893

-LADIES, TAKE EXAMPLE I Madame Patti, who at forty-seven keeps the freshness of twenty-seven, de clares the secret of good looks to be sim ply good health. She eats the plainest' food, abjures pastry and confectionery, sleeps in a fire less room, with her windows wide open, goes to bed-early when she is not sing ing, andi above all, refuses to fret away her beauty, to allow horrible things'to be told or read to her, or to permit social claims tO devour her leisure. Opportunity is rare, and a wise man should not let it pass. Wife-" Do druggists keep dye-stuffs, dear?" ,Husband-' Yes. - In'fact; most druggists keep"little in their shops but die-stuffs."

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 December 1893

NEWS AND NOTES. A large party of Mr Groom's Ex celsior boys are now encamped on Jackson's Creek, not far from Eighnanc vineyard. They are housed in two splendid tents, and their wants are cared for by young cooks selected from themselves. They follow a kind oi military discipline, and it would be difficult to recognise in them the young gentlemen -who were the terror of Carlton and Collingwood Flat. Mir Groom has taught them a good many songs and hymns, and their rendering of some of them with fine volrime and heartiness might be a lesson for some older chliirs not a hundred miles. away. It is needless to say that their "guide, philosopher, and friend" is an enthusiast. or he would not have produced so fine results from such unpromising material. Over 400 boys have been already rescued by him from the depths of rascaldom and infamy, -and many of them' are now respectable citizens in leading towns of this continent. All honour, we say, to Mr Groom and his philanthropic supporters. On...

The Sunbury News. Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY. DECEMBER 9, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 9 December 1893

SBe /ust ad.'r Fear 'eol. SU:NBURY,- SATURDAY. DECEMBER 9, 1893. WIrr reference to some remarks by, the Sunbury correspondent of the Essendon paper concerning the performance of the Victorian Horse Artillery at ?Rupertswood last Saturday, they may he stigmatised as erratic and misleading. He writes:--" After going through some useful movements in the riding school, they were put through some .schooling over low fences, the awkward squad being the first to show the way, but in consequence of the badly trained horses and the want of knowledge on the part of their riders, some nasty falls occurred. A strange coincidence was while the experienced members were allowed the use of stirrips, the recruits had to be satisfied without them. Nearly all the horses showei an utter want of schooling. It strikes me as somewhat absurd, and, to say the very least of it, very dangerous, to compel young men without suffiient experience to ride such animals as they had." It may be surprisiag-and even in...
