Arriving at Mother Kelly's, the bottle was opened, and then I started business in telling her I wanted to see her son Dan about Lloyd. The youn, fellow, being brought in, I explained to him and his mother that it would be a great feather in my cap if Lloyd surrendered to me Besides that I passed my word to use my influence to have him let down as lightly as pos sible. Having explained details clearly I got Dan to promise to bring in my man the following night. If you can con vince those sort of people that you intend to act fair if you can get them to promise they will keep to it. When Dan said he would fetch in Lloyd I was sure that he would stick to his word. All things arranged I ref urned to the hotel. The room I occupied had only one door and that opened upon the verandah. It was selected for that reason because it enabltd me to slip out' at any time un ,bserved. N'-xt evening, sitti...

JUANITA, OR The Mountain Maid. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 6 January 1894

JUANITA, OB The Mountain Maid. BY yM. B. H. With carmine in her cheeks, her hair about her face, Juanita sprang to the top. Jacques was there before her. J Iacques !" One knew then that she loved him. " Sweetheart," he said, "I began to fear you were not coming." He was educated, this Jacques, though he was a spendthrift. " They always. storm so. I shall have to stop coming. You must help me, Jacques, and make a stand." "I know it, Juan. I'm going to. I have a splendid offer now, and I mean to take it." " Ah, Jacques, you should have been rich." She leaned on a rock and looked down into the road far below. Suddenly she drew back. " What is it I" he asked. " Nothing," she answered, and held- him playfully back. He was doubly anxiously to look then. " Dungraveu 1" His face darkened. " Why doesn't that fellow let you alone? What's he waiting there for ?" " How should I know ? I must be going now. Jacques." " Because he is there waiting for you ?" " You know better than that. I shall be...

A SALUTARY EAVESDROPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

i A SALUTARY EAVES DROPPING, S B Mae M. L. BRAYNE. If all the misapplied and unlearned les sons of life were gathered into one vast establishment, there would be created a school of morals that would be original and unique. This is presuming the homely adage, what is one man's meat is another man's poison, to be untrue. No man applies the preacher's examples to himself. It is meant for someone else in the congregation, and the wonder is that Brother B. did not wince, instead of smiling as if he supposed the words were addresse to Brother A. Quaint human nature I It is the same to day that it was when Nathan spake that wonderful parable to David with its dramatic climax, "Thou art the man I" But this was a woman. And she was learning to live through one of, these mis applied lessons. Burns wrote : ' Oh, wad some power the giftie gie us To see oursels as ithers see us." Mrs Fallon was an egatist. She had broad humanitarian views of life from her standpoint, which was above and not on ...

A REMARKABLE STO-tY... An occonnt has reached St Peters burg of a remarkable experience that hefel a young girl, named Alexinmlrine Sehitkine, 17 years of age, who-was recently discovered lying in a stnae of comlplete exhaustion near the villege of ihgorodska, in the province of Moscow. She relates that she fell rsteep one evening on a heap of strar, and on waking some hours afterwards found herself lying under a mass of snow that had fallen during the n;ght and .en veloped her to the depth of. some three feet. All the girl's attempts to ex!ri:nat, herself proved unavailing, and she remained buried among the snow and striaw for 51 days, her only n urishment during the time being a few mors Is of bread that she happened to ha.e wctlr her. When at length rescued, the girl was, of course, found to be in a state of the most complete inanition, and it required several days of constant car, and nursing to restore her strengih.

PINCHING OFF POTATO BLOOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

PIING ITG OFF POTATO - -`` E .OOMS ;Opinions differ or tJhis as well as on a good many other subjects. The : ' d tiage. wm6uld depend greatly upon iwhether the variety in cultivation flowered freely and produced many berries. A few years ago a (:ermsn -grower carried out sune experiments with special reference to cutting off the -blooms. The results were that by pinching off the bilossoms he h 3d a con ,siderable gain, both in the weicht and quality of the tubers. An English antihrity writes that the operation may appear too minute a matter for the a farmer who cnltivates on a large scale : but when it is recollected that the seed in that part of the plant to which the ultimate effects of nature are always dire:ted, it n,·r-t, he allowed that the greatest part of tthe nourishment umist -; b devoted to it to bring it to maturity.

The man Kuntz, who murdered an old woman nam d Failguier in February last by striking her repeatedly on the heal with a leg of mutton bone; was be headed at La Roquette on the 18th ult. The fact that the execution was about to take place F'ad not leaked out so com pletely as on previous occasions. Con sequently there werve very few persons present around the scaffold, and none of the usual rabble. The morning was misty and un comfortable. The prisoner was awakened shortly before 7 o'clock. He then realised that his last hour had arrived. The man showed great courage in these last moments. He dressed himself without aid, and adopted the suggestions made by the executioner. It was only when he was brought out into the cold morning air, and saw the arrangements for his death, that he gave way, and begged that pardon might be granted to him for the er;me he had committed. He asked that his body after the execution might be de livered to his mother. He drank three ...

FIRE AT THE GENERAL POST OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

FIRE 'AT THE GENEr{PL. POST OFFICE "?'The first accounts of the fire which broke out at the Geheral Poat Office between half-past 11 and 12 o'clock on Thursday night were considerably ex aggerated, owing most probably to the difficulty epeirienced in obtaining even an approxim?ate idea of the amount of damage done in the' hurry snd bustle of a midnight outbreak, and also from the fact that it was practically impossible for anyone to say right off how much stockl or fittings had been irretrievably ruined.. Even yesterday no one, from MIr James Simbert. the Deputy-Post master-General-who remained most of the night on the premises, after being summoned from his home---do nwards, can give an exact opinion in figures of the injury effected by the fire. But the deputy is clear upon one point--that £500 .will cover the damage done to the stock, and when he has said so much, look at the gntted fourth floor of the red brick building, separated from the main building by the traffic passage, a...
