POETRY. The Better Land. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 16 December 1893

POETRY.. The Better Land. I see it in the distance dim, Sun-kissed and crowned with summer hue, While on the air faith's peacEful hymn Comes to my ears in measures new. I see its mountains grand and old, Rising in beauty to the skies, While on their wooded heights the gold Of morning light for ever lies. I see fair vales that stretch away Like rivers to the distant sea, Till lost in cilm eternal day, Where pain shall never come to me. Sometimes the land seems very near, So near that I can almost view The well-known faces once so dear, The faces once so fair and true. O holy land-O sun-kissed shore, O land of peace divinely fair; I know when life's wild storm is o'er - That nevermore a broken prayer Is needful in the better life, Beyond the touch of passion's breath,. Beyond the floodtide of the strife, Beyond the dying and the death.

INNATE REFINEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 16 December 1893

INNATE REFINEMENT. One comes across examples of innate re finement of feeling among the roughest men A year or two ago I had a survey to make of some land belongine to a large silver mine. I had takmn my wife with me, and the superintendent was most kind in 'howing and explaining everything to her, One morning ..were standing near a shaft. listening with great interest to his explana. tions concerning prospects, veins of or'-, values and estimates, when suddenly we heard some confused sounds of falling, fo! lowed by some exclamations and. we thour.ht groans. "What is the mat tar '' exclaimed my wife as the cage came up and a big, sturdy fellow stepped out. "Nothing much, lady." he answered, and he whispered something to the superintendent, who turned to us with an expression of great concern on his face. " One of the men who is working below has had a bad fall," he said; "his shoulder is dislocated, and they fear his leg is broken. Why do they not bring him up at once ?" he continue...

THE EMERGENCY HAD PASSED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 16 December 1893

THE EMERGENCY HAD PASSED. They had just three minutes to catch the tram, and were at the gate when Mrs Younglove halted and said "There, I have come away without my fan; won't you run back and fetch it, dear ? I cannot get along without it. And "-but Younglove was already bound ing up-stairs three steps at a time. .C It is there on the dressing-case," Mrs Younglovo screeched after him. " Hurry, or we shall lose the trim." Half a minute later Younglove puts his head out of the window and says,- " Where did you say it was ? " " On the dressing case." "I cannot find it there." " I'm sure I left it there." "Well, it's not there now.' . "Look in the green box in the lefthand corner of the upper drawer, • Perhaps I did not take it out, but 1-hurry, George; it's time for the car."

A BEAUTIFUL VOLUME. The most beautiful volume among the five hundred thousand in the congressional library at Washington is a Bible which was transcribed by a monk in the sixteenth cen tury. It could not be matched to-day in the best printing, office in the world. The parchment is in perfect preservation. Every one of its thousand pages is a study. The general lettering is in German text, each letter perfect in coal black ink; without a scratch or blot from lid to lid. At the. beginning of each chapter the first letter is very large, usually two or three inches long,: and is brightly illuminated in red and blue ink.: Within each of these capitals is drawn the figure of some saint, or some incident of. which the chapter tells is illustrated. There are two columns on a page, and nowhere is traceable the slightest irregularity of line,: space or formation of the letters. Even! under a magnifying glass they seem flawless. This precious volume is kept under a glass .ase, which is sometim...

A S E CRET 'ta UNRAVELLED. ti ti The-wholesale produce and commis- a sion store of Mr Purvis, on Delaware a avenue, near Vine-street, was robbed on a the night of October 17, 1865. The safe had been opened apparently by false keys, and upward of nine thou-, sand dollars in greenbacks were ab stracted. A package of bonds to the a amount of 3,000 dollars more remainedn untouched. Two clerks, both young men, usually n slept in the store. August Yerkes had been in the employ of Mr Harrison t Purvis for about four years, and enjoyed' the confidence of his employer. Per- a broke Sharon, the other clerk, had only recently been taken, but the manner in which he took hold of the business im pressed Mr Purvis so much in his favor C that he predicted a successful future for a the young man, as a very able salesman i and ultimate prominent merchant. Under this impression he placed implicit c trust in Sharon, and selected him a a a ccmpanion for Yerkes in the store at night. Both of these young ...

WIRE AND CUV NAILS. The holding power of wire and cut nails .vas recently investigated at the Water sown acsenal, and the cut nails were shown n- have a ioilding power about 73 percent. great:r than the other class. As the pro luction of steel wire nails now exceeds the iuaput of cut nails, and as the manufac-. turcrs of r~e latter climed for them a ;reater holding power,. a challenge was saued and accepted, and the arsenal test wss to iecide tne dispute. In fifty-eight series of tests the cut nails c.me out ahead n each, and in most cases very much. 1neid.

THE CHIMNEY-POT HAT. " The further we travel from the origin of our species, the less concern does male humanity show to enhance what, share of beauty it may lay claim to, or to sciedn the ugliness it is generally heir to, by grace of garments. Among civilised and well-to do men, gala costume .has no keynote now but respectability.

EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDE OF A BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 16 December 1893

EXTR,.ORD[NARY SUICIDE OF A BOY. Details of the suicide of a boy in Dublin are given in the Dublin Social Review. In a house in the Coombe lived a family consisting of a mother and four children, who had been well to-do people and were well conducted, but owing to the bankruptcy and suicide of the father had been reduced to penury and obliged to live in one room, which three other families also occ ipied. They were in rags, and almost starving. A little son of I ivies so distracted at the sufferings of his mother and sisters that, in despair of being able to support them, he bought with the few shilliags he had earned some articles of clothing and papers entitling the buyer to insurance coupons. He then went and drowned himself in order that his family might be helped out of misery by his death. In his childish ignorance he did not know that his doing so would be considered a fraud, and bring no benefit whatever to his dear ones. This is the letter the poor child wrote to his mother...

E:bch time a well person breathes 'he throws off into the u.ir a quantity- of car bonic acid gas and a certain amount of waste animal matter which the blooa has collected in its passage through the bndy and given to theibreath when it met itia the lungs.

DETECTIVE BERRILL. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 16 December 1893

DET-EGTIVE BERRILL. . B-Y.IxAAC .ATEY]. OHAPTER .] The beto of this sketch, the .late air William :Berrill, was as grand a man as the writer ever met in his experience. Truly he was a noblehearted, whole souled fellow, firm in friendship, affec tionate in disposition, and faithful in the discharge of duty. If it is an honor to be acquainted with any person, that per son was Berrill. Anthony's speech over the deady body of Brutus on the battle field of Phillipi, applies well to my hero. " HIs life was gentle ; and the elements so mix'd in him that nature might stand up, and say to all the world, this was man. " If there ever wais one who possessed those attributes which confer dignity upon the individual, IMr Berrill was their possessor in a very high degree. Certainly he had a sternl sense of duty, yet his inherent amiability prevented any display such as some men show when they are dressed in a little brief authority. In his demeanour he was plain, modest, and unassumning, and an u...
