A Budding Breach of Promise Case. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 February 1895
A Budding Breach of Promise Oase. BY "IOTA" About three years ago, a young gentle mIan of the mature age of 18 whom we will call John Jones, principally because that is not his name, arrived in Melboume co a trip from a remote part of this .olony. Being impressed with everything he saw, he finally decided that the country was only a poor place at the best, and he was nearly sure to make a small fortune in a little while in the city. There are lots of people of John's opinion, but that has nothing to do with us. Acting on impulse John wrote to his elder brother who was a quiet stay-at-home sort of a coot, an nouncing his intention to remain in Town uand stating that the said brother could have the old mare and also a fowling piece which John had won in Bill Smith's raffle, likewise administering a caution to be good to mother and not get too drunk when he visited the nearest township. Aftercharging the'brother with farewell messages to old chuns, john severed his connection with farm...

SMOKING IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 February 1895
SMOKING IN CHURCH. The English, and indeed not a few of the Lowland, readers of Sir Walter Scott's "IHeart of Midlothijn " were beyond men sure, surprised at the description which he gives of the manner in which the Captain of Knockpunder filled and lighted his to bacco pipe, and complacently smoked it during the sermon preached at the ordination of reuben Butler, anti declared that it must be either a gross caricature or at least a very unusual occurence. What would they have thought and fehl if they had witnessed asimilar breach of decorum on the part of the olliciating minister himself, as described by an eminent Profess;or in one of the Scot lish Universities, who was an eye-witness of the scene? In thecourse of a tour through the IIighlands, of which he was a native, the Professor worshipped one Sunday in a large Parish Church which used to be crowded be fore the Disruption, when both the minister and the people seceded from the Establish ment. He found the main door chokedwith...
THE LEADING CHARACTERISTIC OF THE INDIAN RACE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 February 1895
-THE - i4iAN G CfltACER .- -ISTIC OF~THE1.NDIA.: fRACE. W?hat in the genius or, leading charac teristic of the Indian race ?- Their lead ing characteristic is industry, a desire to, improve their condition, .willingness to work, in order to create and accumulate wealth. This uiniversal industrialism,' this innate desire for affluence, supplies the key for solving many of the complex Indian problems at which so many stand aghast. These traits of national char acter are the bonds of sympathy which unite the many nationalities, castes, and creeds of India; moreover, with the in creas:ng development of this feature, common to all, we have an ever-lengthen ing chain of sympathy binding India, not only to this countr;y, but to all civi lised.countries. That this desire after wealth is the leading feature of the Indian people may be illustrated most effectually, not firom volumes of statistics, or Blue books, but from the social customs of their every-day life. The natives of India travel ...
AN ESTIMATE OF IBSEN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 February 1895
AN ESTIMATE OF IBSEN. The Norwegian d~r~matist, Ibsen, isbe lieved to have had a wide and probably bitter personal experience. He writes like a man who has been disappointed in domestic life, foi ed in ambition, exposed in intrigue, and who assumes that all others are like h:mself. To his eyes all men and women are masked. His cha racters are evideitly intended to be t)ypi cal-; and the irevitable impression de rived from them is that all are like Dr. Jekyll. As a rule Ibsen divides people into two classe--those who are hypo crites and those ;vho are weak. He is a dissector rather than a diagnostician. He has apparently no idea that a cure is possible. The more hideous the moral cancer, the more surely does he tear off its bandages. -e seems to hunt for maggots, aud, having found them, simply leaves all the fou:ness uncovered. Unless Ibsen's writings nisrepreent him he has faith neither in h.man nature nor in the existing social order. His conception of freedom is utterly false. To ...

THE FUNNY SIDE OF SEA SICKNESS. " One morning," says Dr. Dutton, " in going my rounds, after having. had a dreadful niglit Sf it, I went into a vounon American Indv's cabin to inquire after her health. Sie stid she was mucli better, and 'guessed' she would be all right after she got on deck, but asked me to stay and ' yarn with her. I stayed about ten minutes, when suddenly an awful feeling came over me. To her request to stay longer, _ replied that if I did we should both have to share the same basin "- a proceeding which would have been by no means romantic. A little conversation overheard oneeverning seems to indicate tha: a sea voyage is not al ways the happiest way ofspendinig one's honeymoon :-" Darling, are you better ?" says first turtle dove. "No, dearest; worse! What is the use of having a doctor on board who cannot cure sea sickness, darling !"' A significant pause. "'It is absurd," says first turtle dove again.

WHY NO SCOTCHMEN GO TO HEAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 February 1895
WIIY NO SCOTCHMBEN GO TO HEAVEN. Long years ago, in time so remote that his tory does not fix the epoch, a dreadful war was waged by the King of Scotland, who, elated.by his successes, sent for his Prime Minister, Lord Alexander. " Well, Sandy," said he>" is there ne'er a king we canna conquer noo?" "An' it please your Majesty, I ken o' a king that your Majesty canna vanquish." "An' who is he, Sandy?" Lord Alexanmder, reverently looking up, said, " The King of Heaven." " The King o' whur, Sandy ?" ' The King o' Heaven." The Scottish Kiing did not understand, but was unwilling to exhibit any ignorance. "Just gang your ways, Sandy, and tell the King o' Heaven to gi'e up his dominions, or I'll come muysel' and ding him oot o' tllem; and mind, Sandy, you dinna come back to us until ye hae dune oor bidden." Lord Alexander retired much perplexed, but met a priest, mand, reassured, returned and presented himself. "' Well, Sandy," said the King, "ha' ye seen the King o' Heaven, an' what ...
