THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 16 December 1893

TH EILADIES' COLU MN. The Eton jacket as a form of light wrap for outdoor dresses is really a remarkab e feature of .present..fashion. -Every--woman an- every young lady seems to have becomei the possessor of one or more gowns for out-! of-door wear, having this jacket worn either. over a blouse or shirt-waist, or a vest of. contil,.silk, or woollen, . Th. -plain revers of Directoireshape, spreading widely out below a notched collar, are:more liked than. almost any design for the adornment of the square sides, but the butterfly ruffles extending. over the large leg-o'-mutton sleeves, or only half-way, and starting from the sides of a ,tock collar appertaining to the vest or waist worn Deneath the jacket, are also. favorites. Sometimesthe jacket has no ruffle and only a small revers, and this .style has the advan tage of being cool. While the Eton jacket is, beyond all doubt, the main favorite as a light :wrap for outdoor gowns, there are yet many stylish, becoming, and fashionable c...

QUEEN OF HEARTS;" Ou, U) Love's Devotion. SBy RS,. G. SHELDON. it CHAPTER XXXIII-(CNTINUED). T. Shirley tried to speak lightly, and com- V pleted her sentence i ith a little laugh, b;t it only haif concelded the sob that arose to her ips, and fell reproachfully upon madame's ears. ' Well, I wouldn't have thought it,"r madame said in a softer toue than si1) h ad used for-many a day, " for I know that I have bden a. kind of human porcupine, shooting my sharp quills at you ever since you came to me, and I only wonder that a you dia not fly from me in disgust lon. ago. . Shirley laughed out musically at this original simile. " But, you see," she playfully returned, J I am beginning to learn how to rece LV the quillsa so 1 do not mind them as I did "Oh ! then you did mind them at first," a said madame, with an amused twinklel in her eyes. : "Why, yes; I couldn't help it, you know,' Shirley frankly;replied.

flH MErIRY REVELLERS. MECHANICS' HALL. Lyrich's " Merry Revellers" held their performance, as announced, at the Suabury Mechanics' Hall on SSaturday. night. The company, -which is promis. ing to be a good one, was fairly well patronised, taking all things:: into consideration,- and they purpose visiting here periodically --on Saturday evenings-should sufficient inducement be offered, The proposition seems favourable enough, and it ought to be very palatable to Sunbury play-goers to be provided with an amusing entertain ment every alternate Saturday or so.

They also accompanied the various vocalists.

A NOVEL IN ONE CHAPTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893

A NOVEL IL ONE UHAPTEB. Ernst Harcourt D'Aramore looked at his watch. It was just half-past eleven. He was returning from a poker party at a Brooklyn club, and his winnings, amount. ing to seventy-five or eighty cents in dimes, clinked melodiously in his trousers pocket. As he strode rapidly across the park to. ward Broadway a blight, girlish figure sudderly appeared before him. The city hall clock struck the hour of midnight. Beneath the dazzling brilliancy of the electric lights she looked to be almost of supernatural beauty. In her hands were clutched a collection of various coloured bits of silk, lace and other fabrics. The< girl seemed to be in distr'a -a: - he_ , .- _-. ,er a moanme and, raising his hat fully five inches from his head, asked with true D'Aramore courtesy and a look of almost human intelligence, "Can I beofanyassistan ce to you, madam ?" The girl burst into a passionate fit of sobbing. Then she approached nearer and said impressively: "I am looking fo...

Protection. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893

Protection. They sat in the gloaming and in the ham. mock. For some time their courtship had been nearing a business point, and as they swung lazily and swapped their little lov ers' secrets there was lightness in his heart and a feeling of captivity in hers. He had asked the momentous question, and she had coyly answered "Yes." "Hortense, darling, now that we are to be married there is one little detail that it will be well to arrange now." "Command me, my chevalier." "When we are ready for housekeeping, I wish you would ask your pa if we can't have your dog come and live with us." "And why do you wish it thus, darling?" "Your precious brother Johnny informed me when I first began to pay attention tQ you that whenever you were displeased with yourself or anybody or anything you were in the habit of kicking the dog. Should there be any reoccurrence of such symptoms after we are married, I think it would be of some protection to me for you to have the dog about."-Union County Standar...

THE SILENT [?] [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893

ýTBE S-LENT o --- An eminent lawyer in a Western city, when addratying an audience composed of young men, referred to the influence which had been of value in enabling him to resist num- rous temptations to waste his opper tunities and precious time in pursuit of so called happiness. He said: I was of a social nature, but I was also my mother's hope. I knew if I gained the education she desired for me I must buckle down to hard work and prac tice rigid economy. As a "good time" was more alluring to me than study, the prospecr was not inviting. When I was a small boy, every evening at the beginning of twilight my mother called me into her own room. Together we kept the " silent hour." I sat at her feet, my head lying in her lap. I frequently feli asleep. I was a fun-loving child, not given to fancies, yet even then I felt the hush and sweetness of this sacred silent hour. When the moonlightlighted mother's face, 1 thought an angel's could not be sweeter. As the years sped on we conti...

Shirley was thinking of something that Lord Wallace had written in his lastletter to her. " So you are to return some time 'next month," he wrote. " Such being the case I cannot deny myself the pleasure of re maining in New York until that time, to-l greet you and bid you welcome homej' otherwise I should now be back at Ivy hurst, for my course of stuly here is comr pleted, as are also the plans of a fine hospital, which will soon be erected in the' suburbs of Quebec, and where I hope to devot'the most of my future to the mter ests of suffering humanity.

A REMARKABLE PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893

A REIABRKABLE PRODUCT. The pop weed, which grows on the prairies of the Dakotas, is a remarkable product of nature. It has a stalk like a cabbage plant, with a large round top. When the terrific northwest winds blow late in the fall the pop-balls become detached from the stalk and roll for miles over the prairies, until they reach uneven country or other oostructiuns, where they occumu late and pile up like high houses of snow Behind these banks of weed the wild buffdlo found shelter in midwinter from the fierce blizzards. If the pop weed ball ccmes forcibly in contact with any hard object while rolling it explodes with a tre mendous report, a cloud of fine powder passes on through the air, and thousands of sharp fine needles are thrown out in every direction. These needles are the seeds of the pop weed and are wh.ýt "reo duce the mischief with stock, for they are very penetrating. The indians tell strange stories about the weed. It is said that the young braves of the tribe for dis...

HE GOT THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 23 December 1893

" I like a man who gets there quietly," observed the drummer in that peculiar tone which characterizes the preface of a story. •' Well, go on with the rest of it," sug gested the man next to him. " I was just reminded," he said, smiling, " by that whistle of how a friend of mine got there quietly. He had a fine old place in the town, where a couple of generations of his familyhad lived, and with the march of improvement a factory was built on a s quare back of it, by a wealthy man who had an elegant place in the country where he lived all the year around, and had many visit.irs. It so happened my friend owned ten acres adjoining on which he had a tenant and a barn. As soon as the factory started up my friend discovered that a most discordant and noisy whistle was one of the features, which was blown every morning at half-past o o'clock, to awaken the workmen. It did this very well, but was such a nuisance that an effort was made by the old settlers in that neighbourhood to stop it. ...

There was some very good batting by both teams and the Sunbury boys were rewarded for their efforts in a victory by a wicket and 58 runs.
