Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 6 September 1893
Vasse. ? « ? (From Our Correspond ent.) Vasse, Saturday. 1 see m my last letter that your compositor made a sad blunder in reference to the new show ground, making it appear to be quite a mile nearer the township than the old one. He was evidently thinking of the new race course at the time. The site of the new show ground, as I stated before, is only a short dis tance from the old one, and close to the River. The committee, I believe, have de cided not to have the ground ploughed until after the next show, when it will be ploughed and sown with couch grass. When this is done, the ground will be available for sports. By this means, it is hoped, by charg ing a small price for entrance to the ground, it will be the means of in creasing' the revenue, and adding materially to the funds. I also notice that I inadvertently stated that the Race Committee meet on 3rd September, to inspect and mark out the new race course. It. should have been the 'third Wed nesday in Sej)tember.' The sweeps...

BALL GOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
BALL GOWNS. Satin of brilliant sheen is the fabric chosen for ball gowns in preference to tulle or chiffon. The youngest debutante wears an entire gown of satin, while other young women, either married or single, have the further choice of brocades, in which satin prevails. There are many white satin gowns, but most are relieved wi+'i oolor, whether embroidered with gold or silver, or completed by sleeves and revers of shaded velvet. The preference, however, is for colored satins — pale pink or yellow, Nile green or mauve. A pink gown remains the favorite for a girl's first ball, after she has made her bow to society in a very simple white toilet — Harper's Bazar.
THE MATTER OF NOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
THE MATTER OF NOSES. You may put these two rules down as nearly always certain ; that the retrousse nose is generally the accompaniment of a bright mentality and a cheerful wit. There is a good deal of humor in the possessor of one of this kind of noses. The piquancy of the nose seems to go hand in hand with the piquancy of the mind. And the clever man, whose cleverness is really solid and something -more lhan skin deep, has a good sized nose. Not one of the beefy kind, bnt one of generous proportions, with an arch or straight line from tip to base. I never saw a man with a goodly nose who was not the possessor of some marked virtue and who oould not be relied upon in case of emergency.— Chicago Post.
Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
Ladies' Column. ? * ? Low- out gowns are no longer in vogue for reception wear. Social usage decrees that white is the only oolor for a debutante. The fashion of oar grandmothers closely resembled the modes of the present minute. Irridesoent or shaded velvets are muoh used for the sleeves of silk or o loth dresses. The fancy in jewellery is the making over of old-fashioned earrings into stick pins. The real tip-top London swells now con sider it bad form to turn up their trousers when it rains. A scientific authority has just given out that a woman's beauty arrives at its maxi mum only after she has passed her thirtieth year. A young oak tree growing in a glass or vase of water is not only ornamental, but interesting. Place an acorn suspended by a thread within half an inch of the surface of the water. Let it remain undistubad for a oouple of months, save for the filling up of the vessel to replaoe evaporation, and an occasional complete change of the water by a siphon. The acorn wi...
The Golden Fleece. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
The- Golden Fleece. BY J. HAWTHORNE. CHAPTER 1. The professor crosssd one long, lean leg over the other, and punched down the ashes in his pipe- bowl with the square tip of his middle finger. The thermometer of the shady verandah marked eighty- seven degrees of heat, and nature wooed the eoul to languor and revery ; hat nothing could abate the energy of this bony sage. 1 They talk about their Atlantises, — their submerged continents !' he exclaimed, with a sniff -through his wide, hairy nostrils. ? Why, Trednoke, do you realize that we are living literally at the bottom of a Mesozoio — at any rate, Cenozoio— sea ?' The gentleman thus indignantly addressed contemplated hia questioner with the serenity of one conscious of freedom from geologic responsibility. He was a man of about the prof essor's age, — say, sixty years, — bnt not like him in appearance. His figure was stately and massive, — that of one ?who in his youth must have possessed vast physical strength, rigidly developed a...

THE SAXON AND THE GAEL. [' The Lowland Scot is utterly devoid of artistio feeling. But, whenover the Celtic element cornea in, there you get ait, eloquence, music.' — Sir George Eeid, Pressdent of Royal Scottish Academy. In vain, in vain for fame I've wrought In music, eloquence, and art — Alas ! I'm but a Lowland Scot 1 I've done my best with brush and thought ; ||My pictures never find a mart — In vain, in vain for fame I've wrought ! Mine might have been a happy lot Had Highland blood fallen to my part Alas / I'm but a Lowland Scot / O, bag-piped Gael with a genius fraught, The E.

It may not be : the Macs have got, E'en where men buy and sell, the start — In vain, in vain for fame I've wrought. Alas / I'm but a Lowland Scot. —N. C.
THE GRAND VIZIER'S LITTLE JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
THE GRAND VIZIER'S LITTLE JOKE. The Shah of Persia, probably for a little diversion, some time since ordered his grand vizier to make a list of all the block heads that held a public offico in Persia. The vizier did as commanded and headed the list, whioh was a long one, with the name of the Shah. That worthy potentat3 was in an excellent humor and did not become ansrry at the vizier's audaoity, but asked why his highest minister considered him a blook-head. 'Your majesty,' replied the vizier, 'I have put you on the list beoause two days ago you intrusted a large sum of money to some doubtful individuals to boy horses in other countries. The horsa dealers will never return.' ' But what if they do return ?' asked the Shah. ' Then I shall take my list, erase the name of your majeaty and substituta for it the names of the stupid horse dealers.' John Milton, according to Professor David Masson, was editor* of a London newspaper in 1661. i] The King of Greece rectefvjis the smallest pay ...
THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13, 1893. FORMAL OPENING OF THE S.W. RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
THE BUSMBURY HERALD WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13, 1893, FORMAL OPENING OF THE S.W. RAILWAY. The great event of Friday last — the formal opening of the South western Railway by His Excel lency, the Governor — the consum mation of the aspirations of years of deferred hope, constituted a notable day in the history of Bun bury. The distinguished array oi men of mark, light and leading, who assembled on the joyous oc casion, is probably unprecedented in the annals of this or any other municipality. The most striking, singular, and gratifying feature in the day's ceremony was the unanimity with which it- was re peatedly announced amid repeated plaudits, that our railway was des tined to benefit not alone these dis tricts, but that it was also expected and predicted to exercise an in fluence for good to the colony's remotest confines. When we con sider the intimate knowledge of the country's capabilities and needs possessed by the numerous speakers who propounded these sentiments, and the still n.o...
Poetry. GREY EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
Poetry. — * — GREY EYES. Grey Eyes, that laugh at IJove, and, laughing, show No mercy when a suppliant lover sighs, Why did I meet you to my overthrow, Grey Eyes ! Have you no passion, woman overwise ! Or, foolish virgin, no sweet tears that flow To grace the happy hour when passion dies 1 O foolish wise / while youth and beauty glow, Untimely are the frosts of cold Good-byea — Will you for ever flash your steely No, m. Grey Eyes ? — E. L. T., in the World.

Humour: [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
Humour: If there were no offioes there would ba no politics. A hasband at homo is worth two in a saloon. Champagne is an engaging beverage, the corks pop so pleasantly. We ask for justice, and what do we get ? Jnst ice ! Self-conceit always puffs us np so that oar eyes go shut. It sometimes takes an entire lifetime to pay for one folly.
