No Title [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895
UNLESS the Anglo-Saxon looks to h'\ laurels he is in danger of being oustci from this land which he has come to regard as his property by the efforts he has put forth in bringing the soh under subjection. He has undertaken the work of the pioneer only to find that having prepared the house he is confronted by an invading tenant. Brotherly love is all very well as : sentiment, but practically there is no bond of sympathy between the Asiatic and the European. Although in umany ways they are examples which our own countrymen would do well to follow, they are content with so 'ittl.e of the comforts of life while here, that when they enter the field as competitors,the Englishman is too heavily weighted to have any possible chance of coming oiff victorious. To protect ourselves from insanitary surroundings, strict by-laws are passed prohibiting certain animals from being kept in thickly populae:ed cities; sanitary laws are enforced, and well-paid inspectors are appointed to see that due r...

News and Notes. THEATR ROYAL-The Hon. George Coppin announces the engagement of Ilr Charles Erin Vernon, in '-Shames O'Brien" to-morrow night. UNFILIAL CONDUC'I-Thus did Dr Lloyd characterize the actions of a pris oner in Count on Monday; Tile accused hadassaulted his father, which elicited the enquiry from the Di. as to whether he had ever read the ten tomiandments, and recommended the fifth to his special notice. THE OxFOBD--Cogill Blos. still gather round them nightly big audiences. Bro. Charlie whips Melbourne with his oddit ies.

TO THOSE ABOUT TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895
TO TtHOSE ABOUT TO MARKY. . Do not have any secrets or confidences apart front each other. I heard a girt not long ago who-was just going to be. married saying to a friend of hers, "I ' wonder if I ought to tell him all ?" Pro bably this "all" did not refer to any thing more criminal on the girl's part than some mild flirtation, but I certainly did think it would be best for her to tel: her future husband all. Nor ought married people to listen us-? censure against each other, even though it fall from father, mother, sister, x"-. brother. Indee,, the best way of keep- -, ing upon friendly terms with one's rela tions-in-law (and we ought to try to de. this) is not to see very much of them,.. especially during the first year after mar-.t- - riage. Sometimes from a false notio. - of economy, the mistake is made of try-- ing to get two families to live in one.s. house as if they were one; but the re-- su!t is nearly always disastrous. I un.- heard a man say bitterly : "I hate the-. very...

THE MISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895
TIHE lIS'TRES~ The best household mistress is that woman who has a practical knowledge of household duties A knowledge of cookery will enable her to point out to inefficient cooks the cause of mistake and failure; and she should not only know how things should look and taste when sent to table, but be able to judge of, and choose well, every kind of provision. It will not be easy for cooks to 'pouse on a lady who knows exactly how much of every ingre dient is requisite for each dish, and who is able to estimate the quantity of food re quired daily for her household. It may not, under all circumstances, be necessary for a lady to exercise her knowledge in these important matters ; and if she has a cook who has proved herself trustworthy, she will do well to delegate large powers to her. But it is obvious that, to judge the skill and honesty of her cook, the lady must possess the knowledge indicated. Nothing can be done to make domestic life better, until all women who take the conduc...
A QUEER PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895
A QUEER PICT'UURE Paul Veronese, like many other painters, was given to eccentric moods and odd habits. On one occasion he accepted the hospi tality of a family at their beautiful country villa. He assumed great liberties during his visit, claiming absolute possession of his room, allowing not even a servant to enter. He would not suffer the maid to make his bed, and the sweepings of the room w\ere left every morning outside the door for her to remove. He slipped away with out bidding the family good-bye. On entering the room the servant found th.- sheets of the bed missing, andat once reported that the painter must have stolea them. After careful search a roll was found in a corner, which proved to be a magnificent picture of "Alexander. in the Tent of Darius." It was painted on the missing sheets of thobed, and the artist had chosen this curious way of recompensing his hosts for their generous hospitality.

DRIVEN ASHORE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895
DRIVEN ASHOBE. Booms! .;?: - I It is half-past five int he morning, and' the little town lies fast asleep in .the dark ness. All night long the wind has been rushing deed on shore ; tile air is lull of the sound of it. Through the sweeping and tearing of the blast suddenly beats the heavy boom of a gun. There is only time to rouse yourself and wonder what it means, when Boom ! There it comes again. As you hasten to the window the quivering rush of a rocket tears through the air, and for one brief mo. ment lights up all the little place lying widespread below. It is the signal to call the crew of the rocket apparatus. All over the town lights begin .o twinkle. Voices call to each other through the drkness ; heavy footsteps tramp past as the men turn out in hot baste. Somewhere out in the thunderous dark of the ocean a ship is in distress and men in danger. Look I is you strain yo'r eyes into the thick gloom a faint blue light shines out-flickers-goes out. It is a cry for help. Alread...
