Arthur Ogilvy followed the popular but not too remunerative occupation of receiving and paying away money. He was a teller in the Bank of Sydney. Successful with the oar and in the cricket field, life had been to him a long procession 1 of happy days.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894

THE LADIES' COLUMN. The double and triple skirts were looked upon by many as avant-couriers of a return to draped skirts; and now we have another overskirt that approaches very nearly to drapery, having all its effect. Instead of repeating the shape of the lower skirt, as these have done, this falls in a long point in front reaching very nearly to the foot, while on either side of the back are two more points ; it slopes up between the points, and hangs in many straight, rounded folds, though there is little or no fulness at the waist, Very narrow trim mings finish the edges of these overskirts -a jetted satin fold, insertion, or a half inch band of black epangles; while the underskirt may be trimmed with fur. The effect of these overskirts is Grecian, and in harmony with thenm the corsages are draped also, with but little fulness, just enough to avoid seams. Still other over skirts are like long redingotcs nearly covering the skirt beneath-which con trasts in colour or fabric-and o...

A LAWYER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894

A LAWYER'S STORY. ? The most curious and interesting case t 6o circumstantial evidence in my practice i was that of Nat Ford. It occurred when I was a much younger man than I am now. In fact I had never had a eriminal case, and was beginning to wonder if I ever should have one, when I received the following telegram : " I am arrested on a charge of mur der. You must defend me. Come at once. NAT." Nat Ford had been my friend from boyhood. Left an orphan at an early age, he had been adopted by a bachelor uncle who was said to be very well off. His home, called Winthrop Place, was like many' mansions in the southern states-very large, with numerous wings, and a double piazza on three sides. I had visited the house more than once, and remembered it distinctly. I wondered whom Nat could have been accused of having murdered. He was rather wild, but not at all quarrel some, and he never had an enemy in the world. It was useless to wonder : the telegram gave me no cue, and I must wait till ...

RAISING OLIVES. Uppermost among the products of the soil of Caliifornia which promises to be come one of the most profitable to the hurticulturist, is the olive. As yet the business of growing the olive and making olive oil is in its infancy on this side of the Atlantic, but there are a dozen or two even in -alhfornia who are paying special at tuntion to this industry. nhough has been done in this line of olive growing to convince the producer tt th??ere will be profit in it when the p-uple come to understand thoroughly the true merits of :olive oil. There are two pupular varieties of olives grown in Call tor?ia-the Mission, a large, meaty fruit, and the ltedding Pichaline, a stall fruit, rienly productive of oil. Wuen matured, it is about the size of a well-developed cherry and dark red in colour. The MLission is green, and is the variety usually found on the tables of restaurants and hotels. The Pichaline matures earlier than the Mission, and is gathered first. the fruit is picked...
