BULLA CRICKET CLUB V. SUNBURY JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

BULLA CRICKET CLUB V. SUNBURY JUNIORS. Whatever chance there might have been of. bringing this match to a definite conclusion on Ssturday, at Sunbury, was destroyed by the weather, drizzling rain all the forenoon preventing play being commenced till after three o'clock. The pitch .was then so slow that the batsmen found run-getting a comparatively simple matter, and as was only to be expected, after the visitors, made the huge score of 186, that the match ended in a draw. S, Daniel, whose play was invaluable to his side, made 112, but he had so much luck that his perforn ance could not be considered remarkable. He was missed several times by the fieldsmen whose,. " fieldi"-g' throughout the match was exceptionally bad. Fisher batted well fir 26, but fell a victim to W. Eadie, who effected one of the most difficult catches witnessed this seaon, A. F. Daniel, altliough not quite recover4d from hi- recent illness, added eighteen to the score. At the conclusion of the Bullaites innings ...

MODERN PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

MODERN PROGRES5. The nineteenth century has already seen the production of many scientific inventions which are the outcome and demands of the age, such as floating palaces, great engineering feats, colossal structures, electric motors, and aunberless contrivances which tend to make the old fashioned days we read of somewhat of a laughing stock to us of the present day; so that common sense ridicules the conser vative idea, and the theory held by some (with due respect to archieologists) even now, that what was good enough for their fore fathers is still good enough for them. While staying a day or two in Mfelbourne (en route for London on a holiday), I had an oppor tunity of witnessing the go-ahead character of the city man, and some of the institutions amongst which I sauntered, in order to bt prepared to answer any questions which might 1e put to me by the Londoner, who is from all accounts, sadly ignorant of the com nercial importance iof Melbourne and thE sntipodes in general. ...

SENSATIONAL BURGLARY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

SEV SATIONAL BI RG LARY. A sensational and audacious burglary, which has resulted in the dangerous wounding of a young man, was per formed early yesterday morning at Williamstown. In Nelson-place, the main street, running parallel with the Beach, stands the pawnshop of Mr Michael Crawcour. The shop is directly opposite the Gasworks, and is distinguished by the three golden balls displayed at the top of a pole at the edge of the kcrbstone. Here it was that, at a few minutes past three this morn ing, an exciting struggle took place be tween the proprietor and his son and two armed and desperate ruffians, who had "cracked the crib," with the expectation of making a rich haul. The result of the conflict has been that youngr Mr Crawcour, after a plucky struggle, re ceived an abdominal wound that has placed him at death's door. Fortu nately for society, both of the perpe trators of the burglary have been arrested, and the rnfian who fired the shot that has so nearly proved fatal was taken...

RIDDELL'S CREEK WATER TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

RIDDEL'S CREEK WATER TRUST. A meeting of the Commissioners of     the above Trust was held at the Shire Hall, Romsey, on Friday the 5th inst, Messrs Millane (chairman), Maxted and Sommerville being present. The correspondence included an ac- count for £191 13s 1d for interest on loan, and a letter from the Water Supply Department stating, with reference to the Trust's request that the interest charged should be suspended for two years to provide funds for the construc- tion of a service reservoir and other improvements, that the assistant en- gineer had reported that the existing supply gave 50,000 gallons per day for garden use. In view of this a servc   reservoir, although highly desirable, was-hardly warranted. As regarded the suspension of the interest it would be charged from 1st January 1894 instead of from 1st January, 1892.—Received. Accounts amounting to £44 15s were passed. for payment. Two applications were received for the position ...

A SERMON IN RHYME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

A'SERMON IN RHYME. - If you have a friend worth loving, Love him. Yes, and let him know That you love him, ere life's evening Tinge his brow with sunset glow. Why should good words ne'er be said Of a friend till he is dead ? If you hear a song that thrills you, Sung by any child of song, Praise it. Do not let the singer Wait deserved praises long. Why should one who thrills your heart Lack the joy-you-may impart 7 If you hear a prayer that moves you, By its humble, pleading tone, Join it. Do not let the seeker Bow before his (God alone. Why should not your brother share The strength of " two or three" in prayer P If you see the hot tears falling From a brother's weeping eyes, Share them and by kindly sharing Own your kinship with the Ekics. Why should any one be glad When a brother's heart is sad P If a silvery laugh goes rippling Through the eunshine on his face, Share it. 'Tis the wise man's saying For both grief and joy a place. There's health and goodness in the mirth In which a...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 13 January 1894

THE LADIES' COLUMN. So much trimming is used now for dresses that they become costly articles for slender purses, and the ruches, bauillonnt s, frills, and flounces with which the often costly material is arranged, require most skilful workers, for unless they are well made such ornamentations are far from being ornamental. Passementerie trimmings never were more magnifioent than they are now, and there never was a time when the success of a dress depended more on the trimming. Collar and belt pieces are elaborately ornamented with jet, coloured beads, and silk embroidery. Nets are covered with spangles, black with jet, or gold and white with silver or gold, and tbese often t -e the form of some floral design. Besides the great variety of bead trimmings there is a silken embroidery embracing all the daintiest shades of cream, mauve, yellow, green, and blue, liberally threaded with gold. The plain black stuffs worn for half mourning can, by the aid of silk or ribbon trimming, be tran...

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

"-No," Meda said in refusal. "Rather will I go back to Ridgeway, where my I father and I spent our last summer, and where the mountains, silent and unchangeable, shall keep me in remem brance. I do not wish to forget." Arrangements were accordingly made for her early departure ; and one misty evening, when the clouds.were as sombre as the habiliments she wore, and gaveas little promise of brighter days as her sad face, the young recluse alighted at the rugged mountain station. When she entered the little hotel parlor, however, with its hooded furni ture, and general air of lonesomeness, a familiar voice acc...

LITTLE TWO-YEAR-OLD'S APPLE. Very good he had been all morning, Thought Two-year-old's mother one day, So she said to the dear little fellow, On the nursery hearthrug at play : "See, here is a rosy-cheeked apple, But don't eat it all alone; Go and offer a half to some playmate, Who hasn't got one of his own." Just half-an-hour later she asked him (For mothers never forget), " How did you like your apple, - tAnd whom did you share it with, pet F" " Well, I went to my little pussy, And whispered into her ear, I've got such a pretty red apple, So will you have half of it, dear ?"' " I'm sure that you tried," said his mother, " To do just what you were told; But why wish to share it with Kitty, You queer little Two-year-old ?" Then Two-year-old looked up bravely, Though his dear baby-face was red : " Cause pussies don't never eat apples, And I wanted it all," he said.

TH.E RAILWAY LIBEL. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE SUNBURY NEWS). SIR,.--The Age correspondent for Sunbury must have found himself in a humorous mood ,then he took upon himself to-inform the general public that the residents here were in full sympathy with that paper, in spite of the adverse decision by the jury in .the Speight v. Syme libel case, on account of the in estimable service it had done the country. The thought occurs, is this a misnomer -inestimable ? -The jury thought so when they gave their decision, and ac cording to report Mr Speight had a majority with him all through, even in spite of the extraordinary number of witnesses brought forward by-the defend ant. But the query comes up ; on what basis did this correspondent make such a statement ? There has been no meeting nor subscription list to give him authority for making such a statement. It must have come through the central begging committee for the defendant to invoke the leading liberals to call a, meeting, and get the l...

So many attempts had failed tl a` they had given up the task as impossible. A young officer was appointed to the place, who said, on being told about her, that he would soon secure her conviction. Early one morning he left town and arrived at the old woman's house at seven o'clock. Walking in he saw no one, but noticing a bell on the table he rang it. The old woman appeared. He asked her for a glass of milk, which was set down before him. After a li tle while he rang again, and the old woman appeared. He asked if she had any whisky. "Aye, sir," said she, "we aye hey some in the bottle," setting it down before him. He thanked her and laid down a sovereign, which sl e took, and walked out.
