CONCLUSIVE REASONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
CONCLUSIVE REASONS. K TuriE is perhaps no more unfair ques tion than that which certain rejected swains are said sometimes to ask the object of their affection, subsequent to a refusal: "But why won't you marry me" A formula for a reply to a question of this sort is said to have been framed by a young woman who had to do with an importunate lover. Said shse: "I would marry you but for three reasons." "Tell me what they are," he implored, " that I may remove them." Unhappily for him, she did tell him. The reasons were as she stated them: "In the first place, I do not love you.. In the second place, I don't want to love you. In the third place, I couldn't love you if I did want to."
BELL-RINGING IN LONDON, 1609. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
BELL-RIN(GING IN LONDON, 1609. ON arriving in London we heard a great ringing of bells in almost all the churche., going on very late in thie evening. We were informed that thoe young people do that for thie sake of exercise and amuse' ment, and sometimes they pay consider., able sums as a wager who will pull the bell i the lonlgcst and ring it in the most approved'[ fashion. Parishes spend much money int harmoniously-sounding bells, that one" being preferred that has the beat bells. The old Qucen is said to have been pleased ' very much by this exercise, considering it a sign of the health of thie people. They do not ring the bells for the dead. When a person lies in agony the bells of the parish he belongs to are touched with the clappers until hlie either dies or recovers again. As soon as this sign is given everybody in thesi street, as well as in the houses, falls on his. knees, offoring prayer for the sick person.
THOSE SELFISH CHICAGOANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
THOSE SELFISH CHICA GOANS. Mins. MIuneass: " How did you enjoy your visit to the World's Fair " Mrs. Puggins: "The Fair was good enough ; but I don't think they had any business to charge cxtry for the gondolas and side shows and things. Seems to me the price of admission was enough to cover it all, and give a free lunch besides; but it didn't. I never saw such selfish, money eaving creatures as them Chicago people. The worst of the troubles, though, came at night. That was awful I We weroe packed four in a room sometimes, and one night the children had to sleep on the sofas. I never felt so annoyed in my life." " WVere you at an hotel ?" "No ; we was visitiu' relatives, and other relatives kept comin."
HARDLY FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
HARDLY FAIR. IT was a hot day, and the panscr of the suburban church, look'ng over his congre gation when about half through his sermon, noted many nodding heads. "I wonder how many of your brethlie," he observed in the somewhat monotonous tone in which heo had been preaching for nearly half an hour, "would be ready if the angel of death should make his appearance at this moment and call out in a loud voice, "All season tickets 1 " Forty-seven season ticket-holders in vari ous parts of the house awoke with a jerk, felt hastily in their vest pockets for some thing, looked confusedly about them a moment, and became instantly attentive and devout.
Science in Eating. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
Sciclce inl JEtlilng. Everything that can be done to teach people how to eat and what to eat is to the advantage of the producer. In a young country like ours, the science of cooking ande the coience of eating is not well understood. In the development of a now country people cannot give much attention to what they eat. It is not always what they would eat, but oftener what they can get to oat; and there is a sort of hereditary taint to appetite. If not exactly that, children are very apt to show a partiality for what they learned to eat in childtbood, all through their lives. Our mothers fried potatoes in a great deal of fat, and we shall bo very likely to be partial to greasy fried potatoco all our lives. And then Indifferent food, indifferently cooked blunts the taste, and many a man and woman with taste thus blunted, is incapable of distin. guiehing a finely flavored arliclo of food from one that has no flavor at all or an off flavor. A g.ntleman with a force of men at work in s...

THE FARM. . Diseases of .forcsa. There are no many diseases incilent Ct poultry that it is impossible to derocil'c thn symptoms of all in a brief article. Th( disease most prevr,letnt in the winter and spring is roup, which kills more fowls in thit. country than cholera and all other eauset: combined. Itoup is due to colds, and may be brought into the flook by contagion, by damnpners, by exposure to winds, and by imuproper shelter. There are several forms of roup, but the signs are discharges from the nostrils, swelled heads nod eyes, hoarse breathing, and whlitih sore throat.

Killing Flies by the Million. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
Killing Files i by tie Million. A druggist kills the swarms of flies about his soda fountain in a novel manner. He d!senvered that insect powder is of almost as rapid combustion as gunpowder, though the flame lives several seconds. By a further investigation he diEcovered that a portion of the powder, thrown from the bellows through the flame of a lighted match held six inches away, produced the required flame, and was eapable of destroying flies by the million. He therefore puts out some bait for them every morning, When they have collected In suf. fiBent numbers he gets his powder and match, and the work of destruction is sure and swift. No upilty fly escapes the scorching of the wings. Dy this means all the flies in the store can be destroyed in a few minutes. "' How Long Girls Should be Courted," is the title of an article in a contemporary. Much the same as short girls, we should say.

AN OLD CUSTOM OF "MERRIE ENGLAND." [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
AN OLD CUSTOM OF "M :I IRIE ENGLAND." IN England for many a long period a kiss was the ordinary form of salutation; a guest, upon his arrival, and likewieo upon his departure, saluted in this way his hostess, her daughters, and any other ladies who might happen to be present. It was the proper thing to do, and he did it ; they taking it as a matter of course. Foreigners commented with astonishment upon this singular custom, but fell in with it with remarkable rapidity; Erasmus, who lived in the sixteenth century, waxing quite enthusiastic when he dilates upon the way in which everybody kissed everybody else, and nobody was ashamed. It is declared that the Reformation had some effect in checking this time-honoured custom of " Morrio England ;" still, when we arrive at the time of James I., we find the Constable of Castile, that stately Spanish nobleman, gallantly saluting the pretty maids of honour all round, in the very presence of their muistress, " according to the custom of the c...

POVERTY AND TALENT. DVORAK ON HIS EARLY STRUGGLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
POVERTY AND TALENT. DVORAK ON HIS EARLY STRUGGLES. " IT is to the poor," says Antonin Dvorak, "that I turn for musical greatness. The poor work hard; they study seriously. Poverty is no barrier to one endowed by nature with musical talent. It is a spur. It keeps the mind loyal to the end. It stimulates the students to creat efforts. If in my own career I have achieved a measure of success and reward it is to some extent duo to the fact that I was the son of poor parents, and was renred in an atmosphure of struggle and endeavour. Broadly speak ing, the Bohcmians are a nation of peasants. My first musical education I got from my schoolmaster-a man of good ability and much earnestness. He taught me to play the violin. Afterwardq I travelled with him, and we made our living together. Then I spent two years at the organ school in Prague. From that time on I had to study for myself. It is impossible for me to speak without emotion of the straits and sorrows that came upon me in the long a...

LORD WINCHILSEA'S PET LION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 March 1894
LORD WINClIILSEA'S PET LION. IN the course of an article in the Chil dren's Pago of the "Cable," Lord Winchil sea tells of a pot lion which he obtained when in Egypt. One evening, he says, my Arabservant came in and told me that a man from the village wanted to see me,and had brought something to show me. Thou the man himself appeared, fol.owed by two Arabs carrying a largo basket between them, and when it was opened Isaw a baby lioness. Such a beautiful little thing. She was quite young, only about six weeks old the man said. He had found her far up the country in the dessert, and luckily for him her patents were both away looking for food, I suppose, so he took the little thing in his arms and brought her back. She had such a wise look, just like the grown-up ones you may have eeon at the Zoo. I was tempted to buy her, but the man wanted a very high price for her, so I shook my head, and with a very low bow he retired for that nihot. I know quite well lie would take less tian lihe...
