THOUGHT IT AN EXCELLENT JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894

THOUGHT IT AN EXCELLENT JOKE. Years ago a naval chaplain with a tall hat was passing through the dockyard gates at Devonport, when one of the policemen on duty noticed that he had a piece of tobacco sticking out underneath his hat. The chaplain was requested to remove his head covering for examination; but he refused. "I am an officer in the navy," and I con sider your request an insult." The officers were polite but firm. They were sorry to put so distinguished a gentle. man to inconvenience; but their orders were explicit to search every person whom they xsuspected of carrying out articles liable to duty. "I.have no contraband," said the chap lain, in dt rage ; " but, as you doubt soy word, I will take ott my hat." He did '-o, and there was nothing inside. On the day following the chaplain passed out again. "Well," he said, with a grin, "would you like to have me take off my hat to. day ?" " Oh, no, thank you, sir," said the police, with effusion-not to-day ! Ha, ha, ha !" and the...

ARISTOCRATS IN POVERTY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894

ARISTOCRATS IN POVERTY. Although wealth is an initial condition of aristocratic existence, the mutability of human affairs is such that titles and riches are often thrown far apart. It is no uncom mon experience in these days to find a noble name dragged through the mire of the Bank ruptcy Cour,, or to see present-day bearers of illustrious titles forced to face the battle of life like ordinary people. Vice, folly, and misfortune, however, break through all ranks and distinctions, and hereditary honours are of small account in rescuing a fallen house from poverty when once it has sunk into decay. Bot long ago, Prince Napoleon said, in a speech to a provincial delegation, " I am poor, and I feel honoured to be poor ;" but when it is remembered that between 1852 and 1870, the prince received some milions from the nation, there does not seem to be much cause for pride in the confession. Many princes and mushroom nobles, whose fortunes were linked with those of the third Napoleon, sank ...

NOT QUITE SO EASY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894

N-'OT QUTITE SO E ASY. What other men have done you know you'd do at least as well, But Eomehow, when to prove it you have sought, You're forced unwillingly to own, though why you cannot tell, It is not quite so easy as you thought. There's Jones has made a fortune by a lucky speculation, Five thousand pounds-not bad,but rather small; You're going to make a larger one, but find, to your vexation, Within a week you've lost your little all. There's Tomkins, old and ugly, poor, dull, insincere, and hollow, A chaining wife (an heiress, too) has got; While you, compared with him, appear both Crosus and Apollo, And yet your love says, "Thanks, I'd - rather not!"

HOW A TRAMP TALKS IN KENTUCKY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894

HOW A TRAMP TALKS IN KENTUCKY. A man whose garments appeare I to be in the last stages of decomposition, whose hair was unkempt, whose shoes wereworn and whose step was weary, shuffled up to the rear of a Kentucky residence, and, greeting the hired girl with a smile that looked like the crack of doom, began: " I have this day arrived on Kentucky soil "-, "Bad for Kentucky soil," interrupted the girl. "I have, I say," continued the stran ger, "this day arrived on Kentucky soil " " You weren't expected, sir." " To reach here, my good woman, I have travelled a lon; distance. To this spot from the clime where the Sierras lift up their minarets of snow, like white hands held to Heaven, is no day's jaunt. My boots show that. No. This journey, like Rome, wasn't made it a day. It required weary marches and counter marches sides by stealth on cattle trains; hours of suspense from the rear axle of an emigrant waggon, bringing to mind many scenes long gone by, when covetous companions creled t...

A NEGRO FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894

A NEGRO FUNERAL Just before sundown we were called to the funeral of a young man who had fallen from a mango tree a few days previous, the injuries sustained proving fatal. As may be imagined among a people with so limited an amount of knowledge, a great deal of superstition is exhibited on such occasions. Though doubtless our presence checked to some extent the full demonstration of their feelings, yet what we witnessed, filled us with pity for their ignorance, and led us inwardly to pray, " Lord, send forth Thy light and Thy truth." On reaching the hut we found the body in the uncovered coffin, laid on two chairs outside. And while the carpenter stood with the lid in his hand, ready to screw it down, the relations were saying, " good-bye" to the dead. One by one they came up and shook hands with the lifeless body, begging it to speak a word to " Massa Jesus" for them. The mother was the last to do so. Taking the cold hand in hers, she began, "Joseph, mi dea boay, you gan ? WVell: ...

The Mayor, in a brief but pithy speech, welcomed Sir James tc the town? He knew the interests if the town would be safe in the.hands of the Premier. He would ask the company to drink the health of the Premier. Sir James Patterion responded, and acknowiedged the sterling qualities of the Mayor, whom ~hley had tried and acquitted without a stain on his cha racter. He would ever remember the kindness of thw weh',om. Speaking if Parliament, he thou.,.ht iast session was devoted to Wind and Wisdom.

Oh, joy ! At last a-ross the bay. My ship comes sailing in!" Men said in low whispers, " It is the passing bell, At last his toil is ended." They prayed, "God rest him well !" .* Ho, captain, my captain ! What store have you on board ?" "A treasure far richer Than gems or golden hoard; The broken promise welder firm The long-forgotten kiss; The love more worth than all on earth. All joys life seemed to miss." The watchers sighed softly, "It is the death change. What vision blest has given That rapture deep and strange ?" "0 captain, dear captain, What forms are those I see On deck there beside you?
