OUR NEW SERIAL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

OUR IEW SERIAL STORY. In our present issue we publish the opening chapters of a highly-interesting romance entitled "Winning a Wife in Australia; a Story drawn from Actual Experiences." The narrative is from the pen of A. Donnison, and it will prove of vivid interest to Australian readers, as it it deals with phases of life familiar to the colonial mind; and the portraiture of life and character in both city and back blocks will add interest to the charm of a well written love-story. There is no lack of adventure in the story, although there is a gratifying absence of that melo-dramatic nonsense so often foisted on the reader as typical of life in the Australian bush. The story will be read with pleasure by all who prefer a story of life as it is, and men and women as they are, to the mock-heroics and sickly rhapsodies of the ordinary run of writers on Australian life.

THE SUNBURY NEWS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1893. THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

T'HE MECIIANICS INSI;TUTE.L NowITrsTaiNDtiG that a: notice was posted in the readingroom,. aridl pub licity given in our columns, that the annual meeting of the Mechanics' In stitnte and F'ree Library would be held on Monoday evening, the meeting, so far: as the attendance of the g'neral 1ublic was concerned, was a failure. In'addition to the committee, there were only about three others present. And, consequently, the committee had the delicate duty to perform of congratulat ing themselves on the good work they had accomplished during the year, and complimenting themselves on the hand some balance they had to show. If the public does really appreciate the work done by the committee they ought to at least give evidence of that apyreciation by attending the annual meeting. The apathy displayed by the residents of the district is not at all encouraging to the gentlemen constituting the coimmittee, and if a more lively interest is not taken, time, we ventu...

BULLA. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

BULL A. [FRO3M OUR OWN CORRBSPONDYNT.] Friday. After a long spell of hot weather the atmosphere has at last broken up and a pleasant change has set in. No less than four snakes have been killed in the township this week. They appear to be far numerous this year than ever. Our cricketers are to journey to Keilor to-morrow (Saturday) to contest a match with that clu'o, when they expect to render, a good account of themselves. The annual cricket match between the town and country members of the Oak land's club, took place on Ilr R. Bell's estate last Friday, in the presence of a large crowd of spectators; the day being all that could be desired for cricket. This is the fifth contest these club's have engaged iii, and they are locked upon as the most pleasant outing's of the year held under the auspices of the Hunt club. A. Nash acted as skipDer for the home team. while A. McCracken pri formed a similar duty for the townies, and the former winning the toss sent his m.n to the wickets, w...

THE FARM. SUGGESTIONS ON MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

In the c urse of a do=tnstra:tion on butteer nukiIng, ?dr Tlhomas Smith. dnirv i:.suct'r for the .PBut Count.; C uncil (elivored an address fr.\m which we make the following extract : SOne of the Sfirst and most important el metn:s in the manufacture of butter is the p cpe- treatment of the dairy cow. I am afraid that on a great niany farms this is a matt r which does nit receive the careful attention which .rit mndoubtedly deserves, but, on the conitrary, it is often undertaken in a sliovenly and haphazard way. It is to be feared that generally too little atten tion is paid both to the housing of the cattle and to their proper feeding andci treatment. To milk a cow 'clean' has always been the ambition of the milker. and when that endi was attained he was perfectly satisfied. But to milk a cow in a cleanly war, althou4h of equal im portance, did not, in a large percentage of cases, come witlhin the scope of his consideration. I have, for exam...

NEUFCHATEL CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

NEUFCHATEL CHEESE. A contemporary prints the following directions for making this kind of cheese so much in favour amongst European epi cures: Neufohatel cheese can be made with equal parts milk and cream, or with fresh whole cream, or even skim milk. The directions given, are for equal parts cream and milk, and the cheese should be eaten fresh, or.a short time after. Mix half a 1 gallon of new nilk with half a gallon of cream (sweet) in a glazed earthenware jar. Mir one drop prepared rennet with ten drops of water, and pour into the jar; stir steadily for a minute or so, cover the jar, ' and wrap it in a blanket. In twenty-four hoars the contents will be of the consis- - teny of clotted cream, and ready to put in the itraining cloth, which must be suffici ently close in texture to retain the cream, but not so close as to prevent the whey draining off. An open wooden crate put over a tub is a good arrangement for drain- 1 ing the curd. During the first twelve c bours the curd may be...

PRINCESS THEATRE, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

PRINCESS THEATRE, MELBOURNE: The great success of the pantomime "Little Red Biding Hood" at the Princess Theatre is due in a large measure to the lavish expeneiture of money in mounting the production. The three acts simply bristle with brilliant scenic and stage effects ; the ballets are all on the most costly scale and the scenes are really magnificent1 Novel features run right through tee perfor. mance, and rarely have so much brilliancy of color, animated and continual movements bright music and singing, clever acting and exceilent c~ancing, been compressed into a singil entertainment of this class. The latest addition to the attractions of thi pantomime is furnished by the acrobat Don Juan Oaicedo, whose perlormances on a slender wire is really marvelous. It would be too startling for endurance were it not that the performer's manifest skill deprives It of theappearance of danger.

AMONG THE GEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 February 1894

AMONG THE GEMS. Garnets are brought fron' Bohenria Ceylon, Peru, and Brazil. The most common colour is a shade of red, but brown, yellow, green, and even black varieties are known. Pure stones are never larger than a hazel nut. Jet is a species of bitter bituminous coal. The best rubies come from Burmah. The finest turquoises come from Persia. The black diamond is so hard that it cannot be polished. The best opals are obtained from Hun gary and Honduras. Black, pink and golden pearls are more valuable than white. The emerald is now one of the rarest of precious stones. The star sapphire shows in its depths a white star with five rays. The emerald has long been regorded as a specific for sore eyes. The play of colour in the opal is due to minute fissures in the stone. Diamonds so small that fifteen hundred go to the carat have been cut in Holland. An uncut diamond looks very much like a bit of the best gum arabio. The best pearls are found on the Ceylon coast and in the Persian Gulf....
