THE BABY EARNS THE LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 March 1895
THE BABY EARNS THE LIVING. --4- In most avocations men succeed better than women, but this does not hold true in the profession of begging. Women make more successful beggars than men because they appeal more forceably to the sympathy of the public. What can be more fetching than the sad and hag ard face of a supposed-to-be starving woman holding in her arms a weak, helpless, innocent baby. Yes, the baby is the key that unlocks the hearts and purses, and sends the coins rattling into the tin cup. The beg gar-man is handicapped by his sex. He cannot employ the strongest of all draw ing cards, a baby. And so, while the beggar-woman woos and wins fortune with only a sorry face and a little bundle of ragged clothes, through which the public may discern the wan face of a baby, the beggar-man must, if he would become a strong competitor for business, go to the expense of purchasing a hand organ, or something equally attractive. Furthermore he must placard himself in a manner to excite the...

Horseshoes for Luck. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 March 1895
Horseshoes for Luck. "Never take the horseshoe from the door," is the advice given in a recently pcpular song, which precept is followed by the injunction that while there the bit of iron will surely bring good luck. Be this as it may, there are certainly many thousands of people who to-day, while, perhaps not superstitious in other things, are either believers in the adage, or else, for the sake of effect, in ornamentation employ the horseshoe as an emblem of good luck by giving it a prominent place in household decora ticn. The great fad is to pick up a horseshoe in the street, and he who is thus "fortunate" is supposed, according to superstition, to Lacure extraordinary luck as long as the shoe remains in his possession. But all are not thus favored, and in order to secure a shoe, a visit to the blacksmith or junk man is found to be necessary, making it especially profitable to the latter. A visit paid to a iunk shop at the West end a few days ago showed to what an extent this cr...

SATHE L COSTLIW 'iE: ' Tflat taohe r tirrasCen t Comprisee In Tehkla. Dr. Hocquard, who reotly returned to France arter a residenco of two years in Tonkin, tells about the Annamese bride of a French officer stationed at N-amdinh. The doctor visited the of ficer at his home in the big town and there met a very pretty native girl about 13 years old, who wore a robe of violet silk and more rings on her fingers than WTestern belles regard as in good taste. "You see I have married an Anna mese," said the officer, laughing. "That is, I have bought her of her par eats for 45 francs. They signed the contract before the notables of their vil lage, in which they relinquish all their rights over their daughter. I can do with her as I please, but I must treat her well. If I choose, I may return her to her parents, and they must re ceive her again. It is a very easy sort of divorce. She cannot leave me with out my permission, and if she runs away from me her father is responsible and must return...

A LIFE'S RETROSPECT. A WARNING TO YOUNG MEN. (Continuation.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 1 March 1895
-f L E'8 RETBOBPEUI!T. A WARNoIN TO YOUNG KN.' (Conmu etion.) In one of my paroxysms I conceived that the little dispensary for the use of the wardeman, and which was situated quite close to my bed, was a bar, and that I was lying in a large room of an hote;, which had been devoted to hos pital purposes. This idea was engendered by a long continued rivalry between the municipalities of Ballarat East and West, and my notion was that the Eastern men had carried the vendetta so far as to establish a hospital of their own, and had engaged the hotel for the purpose. I could plainly see the barmaid, and I ac cordingly got out of bed to get a drink. I waited for some time, and the n, under the impression that I had been served,Icaught up a large bottle of carbolic oil, and was just applying it to my lip a when the wardesnan caught me, and soon hustled me back to bed. Thus again God's favour protected me. At length, I began to can. valeece. Many friends came to minister to my wants, notably...
