Hw weBeat the I A PARODY oas GORDOec's WE.-oN POESL Aye, Spider, said Stevens, the 'Roys tak ing evens, The match is all over, bar shouting, they say. But North ought to eat 'em-here's two beers we beat 'em ; AL. Woodham, he swears we can win all the way. The worst of it, Spider, is, I'm an out eider; You aint got a sixpence to shout a cove in. These clubs make a blunder, in playing for plunder A bloke cannot barrack outside on a tin. You roar punted fairly, and some fellow, churly, Whose ear is'nt used to your soul-stirring sound. Sez, here youug 'un, stow it, and then, 'fore you know it, He kicks at yer tin, and yer flops on the ground. They say we have no test, to warrant, a protest For 'Roy playing Banks, who is now very fit; But didn't some muscle get in a tussle And he'll have to show us a doctor's per-I mit.

Football. NORTH V. RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894
Football. NORTH V. RICHMOND. The local club is still pursuing its com paratively victorious course by defeating Richmond last Saturday. The result was a victory, but one that Richmond sup porters had no need to be ashamed of, as the repr-sentatives of the yellow and black un'form made our chaps "go for it " all they knew, and pessimistic Northernites are very dubious about the result of to-morrow's match against Essendon. During the first quarter the Richmond were extremely busy round the enemy's goal posts, to the delight of the local barrackers, who thought they saw four points added to their club's record; while the wearers of vertical blue and white colours in their hats were whistling to keep their mouths in shape instead of getting down. Shot after shot was sent to raise those two flags, each attempt being frustrated by the energies of O'Dea, Wilson, Reid. Tuckwell, and Rolent, who all worked hard to keep their opponents' scoring board clean; and the first moiety oftime was pa...

Sir Charles Noodie. " These porters are very stupid," said one of tao gentleman who, coming into the same compartment as Tommy. had noticed his apparent annoyance.

As to the cholera. not one of us gave it a thoug.t. Not likely it would touch one of us ! It was on the second day after leaving Arcot that Private Thomas Atkins. wito was my right tile, suddenl...
History of the Women's Franchise Movement in Victoria Continued. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 13 July 1894
History of the Women's Franchise V?Movement in Victoria BY S. BAzKER, J.P. Contitucd. Civilisation is but the aggregation of tbe individual acts of duty that the indi Tidual owes to the community. Paid, they are its a-et', brighter than gold ; withheld, they are its debts. Xet, to be paid or extracted-frequently in op pression, sometimes in blood, often in obliteration-the ne iect of this indivi dual duty is rasped by the community in the "Dead Sea Frit " of its wasted, blasted lives. The neglect of sanitary laws brings disease and death - the neglect of moral laws brings dtsintegration and decay. For are we not a community of interests, of which society it bun the raw material, and of which the individuals are but the warp and woof; events the patterns; the weaver God? Let us, therefore, strive "For the cause that iacks assislance, For the wrong that needs res'tanco, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do." The committee brought up their re port, which was adpt...

Taxes isshigh, and dad is out of work, and we don't want no dead horse to carry these hard times." She made it threepence and another vote of thanks, and he seemed perfectly satisfied.

TO WAIT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
'Tis woman's happy lot to wait, To wait with glad exI ectaxcy And buoyant heart lifted elate, The folded future's mystery. Whatever joy may come to bless, Howe'er love sends his messenger, No word nor any half caress May ever be forestalled by her. And though her heart yearn overmuch, Its tenderest song is never sung : She may not raise with lightest touch The curtain o'er the future hung. Iflove come soon or love come late, Or saddest, never come at all, 'Tis woman's patient lot to wait Through all the lengthening in terval.
