THAT MUSICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895

IHAT' MUSICAL PIG. Some years ago a clever player of that queer instrument the batsoon was upon a tour in Ireland with an operatic company, and after a successful season in Dublin, oe had a few days of leisure before open ing at Cork. Our friend took advantage of the oppor tunity to go into the country, and took his quarters at a little waysido inn, near Skibbereen. He took his bassoon for the sake of practice, and in order not to annoy the inmates of the house used occasion ally to run over a difuaalt passage in a loft over the stable. One day during a pause after practico he heard voices outside. "Doubtless," thought the musician, "they are criticis ingmy performance"; and he listened to the speakers " Whisht! Patrick, did ye hear that now I Sure its the ould pig, takin' a les oun in music." "Ye omadhaun !" cried his companion, " what music would ye get from a pig but a grunt '" At this moment the musician gave a flourish on the bassoon;- and the unbeliever was convinced. " Begorr...

Irish Wit and Humor. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895

Irish Wit and Humor. By T. L. COLEMAN. Among the many forms of national humor which we find varying as often sa, the languages of tne different races vary, there is one which stands out distincl from all others, and at once proclaims itself the brightest, the purest, and the most entertaining. Brightest, because in no other nation do we find any approach to the spontaneous burst of instinctive sharpness which marks the true Irish repirtee. Parest, bec-ause it is nuseully free from vulgarity or profanity and though dazzling in its brilliancy, it has also the atteadant virtue of seldom or rever wounding its vicim, and entertain ing, because no other species of humer has caused so mluch genuine amunsemnent as the subject under reviewv,-Irish Wit and Humor. By studying the histories and traditions of other nations we wilLfind that at one time or nothller, iien have in ide names for themselves as wits in taleir native tongue. Perhaps many of them are alive at the present day. Still we se...

THE PAPER AGE. WeJaye.had the age of stone, bronze, and Iron;"it.haid'been.sggested that the present bought to be callcd the paper age. from the enormous consumpton of that commodity in the world. The following data we take from the recent. issue of a German statistical journal: "The snnual Froduction of this article in the United Statesis 207,000 tons; in England. 180,000 tons; in Germany, 203,000 tons; in France, 132,000 tons; Austria, 97,000 tons; Italy, 50,600 tons ; Russia, 32,400 tons; Spain, 30,600 tons. In the United States about 11 lbs. of paper are annually consumed per head of the total. population. In Eng land the consumption is about the same ; in Germany it is about 10 lbs. per head; and in France, 7; Ibs. It is pretty generally agreed that the production of books, pro perly so called, is on the decline all over the world. The increased consumption of paper. is owing to the development of newspapers and magaziies."

It is not etiquette for the gentleman to speal to any iody, but if he is moved to tears hi, weeping is considered a most appropriate setio:n.

DOCTOR JOHNSON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895

DOCTOR JOHNSON. There is more real equality among men than people think. When Dr. Johnson was paying court to Mrs. Porter, whom previous experience did not disincline to a second matrimonial experiment, the honest scholar .thought it no more than fair to hint at some of his antecedents, a degree of honesty which is not always observable in more modern marriages. He told her plainly that he was or mean extraction; that he had no money, and that one of his uncles had been hanged. The sensible woman responded that she had no more money than he, and that though none of her relatives had been hanged, she had several who ought to be i

CLEFT FOR ME. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 March 1895

CLEFT FOR ME. The sonnets of the Rev. Charles Tennyson Turner (brother of Alfred Tennyson) are among the very best in the.English Inan guage.- Healthy, pure and vigorous in tone, they combine the devotional feeling of old George Herbert, with the perfect melody, and faultless accent of the poet Laureate, and will richly repay the careful study of the most cultivated mind. In one of them, en titled "The Barmouth" Sea Bridge," the poet, when crossing it on the railway, and admiringly contemplating i:s ', hugesea pil lars," and " vast mechanics," mighty to con vey a length 'of -cars high over flood and ooze," for a moment-but only fof a mo ment-unfavourably contrasts spiritual with material stre'jgth, deeming the powrer of song vague and weak, in comparison with such a tangible display of engineering skill. Soon, however, the transient erroneous im pression passes away, and seeing truly, he asserts that thamuse is' mightier still; for do not brave songs nerve an oppressed people for st...

A WISE JUDGE, Some time before 1870 a gentleman, in the midst of a squabble at a place of public entertainment in Vienna, exclaimed: "Non sense! the Emperor is an ass." He was forthwith taken into custody, and when brought before the "beak," the latter ad dressed him as follows: " The witnesses have clearly proved that you r:alled the Emperor an ass. Have you anything to say in your defence 1" Prisoner: " Certainly. I meant the Em pero: Napoleon." Judge: "That is -an idle-subterfuge. Everybody knows that Napoleon is an in telligent man. We know quite well you meant his Majesty the Emperor of Austria."

YANKEE YARNS. PRETTY FEET, AND HOW THEY SHOULD BE CARED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895

YANKEE YARNS."d PLEETTY FEET, AND HOW THEY SHOULD BE CARED FOR. Very little is written on the subject of feet, yet a pretty foot, although necessarily con: ceahd much of the time-unless its owner is Sresolved to display it-is quite as powerful a weapon in the armoury of bsauty as a pretty handc. A slender yet plump foot of moderate leng-h, with short toes, smallheel and arched instep, is the ideal of beauty; and although mans well dressed feet appear to possess all thes, requirements, it will often be found that much depends upon the dressing. A prettr Ibare foot is a rare possession, and a eculplor, a young and gifted woman, who had attair ed eminence in her heart,-said that she found it almost impossible to obtain a desir able model beyond the age of childhood. At this poriod the charm of bare feet is a theme for the painter and poet as well as the sculp tor, and in mamma's catalogue of baby's attractions the cunning little pink toes are sure te play an important part.

On the night of the 8th of Febroryr, 183o, a little peasant of Laleu, who was spreading snares in the ditches of the preserves at L'Ormiore, was witness of a frightful scene. A window of Madanme de Montdvrain's chateau suddenly opened ; a man dashed through it, but before letting himself drop, he remained for some seconds hanging by one hand, as if to calculate the distance whlich sepa rated him from the ground. This hesi tation was fatal to him, for another per son appeared at the window with a hunt ing knife, and with one rigorous blow reered the wristof the fugitive, who fell ettering a stifled cry. The little peasant, frozen with terror, crouenched down behind a hedge of wild mulberries, which borders the road from Vangoin to Port Neu£ From his hiding piece he saw a light appear on the threshold of Madame de Montevrain s house. A young man came out and, having gently c'nsed the...

Lady's Costume, CONSISTING OF . SHORT JACKET, BODICE, AND SKIRT. Thecostume is a new London model; and pourtrays one of those pretty blouse fronted badices which are greatly worn. Such a bodice is very becomingly made iu a distinct material as is suggested in the iilustration, when the trimmings and sleeves or the puffs or cuffs of these form the connecting link of the dress in being of the same material as the skirt In frcmr, the costume is shown ofachecked clothl with parts of plain cloth. Thile colours of the cloth were green, black, and grey, while the plain cloth was of the palest green. The back was made in a reddish-ribbed velveteen, with black mattles over the surface, and a plain brown cloth-an autumn combination of textures and colours. A lining having a smooth-fitting adjustment of double bust darts, and the usual seams make the foundation of the bodice, and this is the tened iu the centre-front with hooks and eyes.

THE MISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895

THE MISTRESS. The best household mistress is that woman who has a practical knowledge of household duties A knoisledge 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 0, and choose well, every kind of provision. It will not be easy for cooks to impo-, on a lady who knows exactly how mu:ch 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 circumst urces, be necessary for a lady to e.ercise her knowledge in these important matters; anid if she has a cook who has proved horself trustworthy, she will do well to delegate large powers to her. Butit 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...
