PHONETIC SPELLING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 15 November 1895
PHONETIC SPELLING. Ix Melbourne, a Mr. Thomas Lang is the latest apostle of phonetic spelling, but his converts are not very numerous at the time of writing., Setting aside as a flippant jest that. a large number of Australian justices of the peace are said to habitually use the phonetic method of spelling, it might very well be asked what would happen to the language if Scotchmen, Lancashiremen, Devonshire men, Ulstermen, Connaughtmen,. Cock neys and other natives of the British Isles, speaking dialects almost unintel ligible to each other if set down in print, were to adopt the phonetic system with out demur to please those whose mes thetic and sentimental faculties.are sub ordinatedfto the. rigidly utilitarian,- and shortsightedly:ntiliahrian at that. Some men would have all the country lanes cut perfectly, straight, ruthlessly sacrificing all picturesque irregularities, partly to save a couple minutes in. the journey from village to village, and partly because their mechanical s...
FAT AS A RESERVE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 15 November 1895
FAT AS A RESERtVEiFORCIE. -Tai theory.that fat is a reserve fyrcec (writes in Sydney journalist).' is but a surface truth, or rather a mistaking of effect for cause.. Fat is largely attribut able to temperament, and the " reserve force"..is really the temperament of which fat is the- outward and visible sign. The typical' fat man is complacent, narrow in sympathy, and callous' to things not directly affecting his own ego. Herein lies his strength, and as he offers fewer points for friction than the nervous strenuous and, miore sympathetic lean man, he is better fitted to witlstand tihe wear and stress of public and political life. The fat man takes little heed of "the world's woes'throbbing against the shores of wrong" so long as: theyoy are not his woes. His narrowness-of feeling, not of intellect-offers few points to fate's arrows, but once let misfortune find a way to his ego, and he winces more completely and irrevocably than the highly-strung but more virile nian. The public ha...

Yes, they wi're talking in sub .Asim. bu t o unkindly_tnes._ I hearo him bid her be composed, and caught, as I thought, a light reply that ought to have satisfied tme that Mrs. Urlquhart had simply sufiered from some nightmare horror at which she was as ready to laugh now as he.

"A TERROR FOR DRINK." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 15 November 1895
"A TERROR FOR DRINK." BY CHARLES JUNOIR. "JACK, slip .the rails and let the sheep out," said Squatter McAlister to his old shep henl, as the sun sank in the west, and the last animal left the liquid race of hot arsenic, through which all. foot-rotted sheep had to pass on Narara Station after individual treat ment with the knife. They had just' gdne through the '4000 head which McAlister held on his Ballan River property, wvhich was divided from Narara by a horse paddock, wherein certain special breeds of eattle were placed on trial, and where grass and water were plentiful. Naarra was a sheep run, and had several outstations at eaci of vhich a shepherd was placed in charge. All of these.were visited by the foot-rotters just before spring. The Ballan River flock had proved the worst of the lot, and naturally, as sheep unable to travel in search of their food perish of starvation, Old Jack's flock showed the greatest deficiency in point of numbers. They had now been three weeks at Ial...

Clucas came next, but his stay was short, for he only made 1 run and was clean bowled. G. Stewart then took the vacant crease and Scurry and he kept the Single men at itfor over an hour, the partnership putting on over 60 runs, but Scurry, after having batted splendidly, had to retire for a score of 49 runs, after which a collapse set in until Dr. Troup and J. lickett became associated, for the doctor hit out most un mercifu...
