A Bit of Advice. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891
A Bit of Advice. BT WAIjTEB PENOXEB, There ain't no use o' talkin' Tbe man that wants a wife Ought to find the kind o' woman, To suit his kind 'o life. A thousand pound manner, Is mighty easy got, But a sweet girl with a conscience Can't be bartered — no, nor bought.

But I'll tell yon, if she's laokin' A mighty serious part, What all your wealth won't buy her An' that's jeEt this — a heart.

Car[?] His Point. Dot Leedle Sherman Musician Gets His Innings at a Funeral. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891
His Point. Dct Leedle Sherman Musician Gets Hi« Innings at a Funeral. A funeral procession was moving solemnly through the street, a few days ago, with a straggling German band adding to ths woe ful aspect ot the scene by playing low and wheezy airs. It was a brass band of tbe order that requires gigantio instruments and restful attitudes to obtain the best cSsct. The instruments were on band, but tbe band was compelled to keep moving. The hordes moved forward at a speed far greater than the regulation funeral march. The l&tt man in the band had a complicated brass in strument of a light and giddy temperament that necessitated constant watchfulness to prevent it from breakiDg into rollicking music. Between this instrument and th« polG of the hearse, that frequently struok tbe poor musician in the small of the back, the procession assumed at times tbe festive ap pearance of a target company. Tbe musician was a short, phlegmatic-looking (German who had devoted the greater part...

TO CURE BURNS. Always Have Lime Water and Sweet Oil on Hand. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891
TO CURE BURNS. Always Have Lime Water and S^eet Oil on Hand. It ooFts only a little forethought to have alwayi at hand each, remedies as are most useful in case of burn ; a small bottle of sweet oil, a small box with finely powdered baking soda or starcb, a good sized bottle of lime water, a roll of cotton batting and a bundle of soft old linen. Indeed, a pair of scissors, a thimble, a enool of thread and a ball of coarse darning cotton should be kept with the above mentioned articleB, because even in well ordered households, it takes Borne time to collect all these things — time that seems doubly long when a dear one is suffering. Lime water is easily made by pouring three pints of water over half a pound of unslacked lime. Stir a few moments and then set away for half a day, then pour off as much of the lime water as is perfectly clear and free from sediment ; bottle, and provide with a stopper that may be drawn quickly. This ehould be made fresh every few months. Cotton batting f...

A Tramp Through Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891
A Tramp Through Vic toria. | Bt ' Footpad.' When I last contributed to tbia journal, a little over a month ago, those who read the tramp to Kilmore will remember that there were two of us. This time I was perforce obliged to set oat alone. Some people are under the impression that walking alone is a most miserable state of affairs. This, in my opinion, argaes a want of resoaroe in the person or persons who find themselves bored with their own society, In many oases to walk alone is infinitely more preferable than ha\ing to keep up a forced conversation out of mere politeness. I was sorry Alf would not come, as he always giyes in to me and does what I want, for 1 must aonfess I am as obstinate as a mule sometimes. I can Bulk, and of all things in this world that in one's character is most to be abhorred. Before I go any further I must ''grind an axe ' in reference to the utter discomfort which one is subjected to at holiday times on the Victorian Bail ways. The proverbial herrings in...
