A QUEER PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
A QUEER PICTURE. 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 swelepings of the room were left every morning outside the door for her to remove. He slipped away with out bidding the family good-bye. On etering the room the servant found the sheets of the bed missing, and at once reported that the painter must have stolen 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 thebed, and the artist had chosen this curious way of recompensing his hosts for their generous hospitality.

A NAVAL PARALLEL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
A NALVAL PAIRALLEL. Whllen Sir Provo Wallis attained his hun dredth birthday, the papers recalled the story of the famous fight in which he bore a part. When the tale of the Shannon and Cllesapeake was first told, a writer of that day discovered that a remarkable resem blance in every material detail might be traced in the circumstances of that action and one that took place in the reign of Charles II. While negotiations for peace were going on, the Dutch tidmiral Evertz, being in the Mediterranean with his squadron, it hap pened that Captain de Witte, commanding the Schaerlaes. carrying thirty-six pieces of cannon and a l.undred and forty men, met withlli Captain Ilarman in the Tyger, a small English frigate, which lhad been careening at Tungiers, and 3ame into the harbour of Cs diz with the Echaerlaes. Jesting with De Witte, the Spatards told him the reason he was such gcod i'ends with the English clptainl was be:euse he durst not fight him. Admiral E:eriz, hearing this, thereupon...

HO1W TO CREATE A S;ENSATION 1. Arrive late at the opera. Impression created that you dine at a highly fashion able hour. 2. Do not apologise to the simple people whohave come at theadvertised time, and on whose toes you tread while crushing past them. 3. Invariably carry an armful of scores (the older thebettor). Impression created that you know something. 4. Beat time with the foot at all well marked movements. Impression created thatyou have a musical soul. A pedal obligato invariably enhances the enjoy ment of your neighbours. 5. Hum every ear-catching melody. Impression confirmed that you know some thing. If any cantankerous person re marks that he didn't pay to hear you sing, reply, "Then, sir, you have that into the bargain." 6. Start convulsively whenever a string breaks. Impression created that you have a musical ear. 7. Follow up the start with the remark that really those fellows ought to pay a halfpenny more and get good strings.

Be was not very well posted in book learning or in knowledge of the law, but his own tact and shrewdness invariably brought him through successfully, and his supply of both was practically inexhlaustible. On one occasion he was pitted against a sharp, dapper limb of the law irom a neigh booring towvn, who held up to ridicule a paper which Tomkins had submitted to the court. He remarked, amongst other things, that all law papers were required to he written in the English language, and zontended that thle one under consideration, from its wretched spelling and penmanship, ougha, therefore, to be -xcluded. " Geuelmen of the jury," said Tomkine, when he summedr up, " the learned counsel on the otherside finds fault with my svritin' anld spellin', as if the merits of this case depended...

A MEMORY OF BABYHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
A MEMORY OF BABYHOOD. A few weeks ago I went to see a friend ofmine, an old man who lives in a cot tage. He used to work as a carpenter, and a very good carpenter he must ihave been, but he has been unwell for some time, and not able to work." He lives quite by himself, for his wife is dead, and his children grown up nd away; and as he sits in his arm-chair by the fireside I expect his constant occupation is to turn back the pages of memory, and read those that have been written on and folded down long ago. He has many interest ing things to tell one, and he always does his best to entertain me when I go to see him. He has one story in particular that never fails to thrill me, of a wonderful dream he once had. He is a fine-look ing old man, on the other side of seventy years, with good features, and dclear blue eyes; and last summer a lady, who is a clever artist, painted his portrait in oils, a picture which hangs on his cottage wall, and of which he is justly proud. The other day ...
