TURN IT ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

TURN IT ROUND. Some people seem to have the most un happy knack of turning everything the "seamy ' side outwards. They make even phasant things seem disagreeable by the way they talk about them, managing somehow to stir up everybody's cross tempers, and to put a big extinguisher on all good humour and cheerfulness. Little littyvand M3ay are highly busy at their dol's-house. It is very interesting work, and they don't want to be interrupted, for the dolls are " moving," andl there :s a great deal of sweeping and cieaning to do. But in the middle twelve-year-oll Madge comes in and ups-tta oi the fun. "Come," she says in a shar, tone, "clear up this litter and be quick about it, you can't stop here. Mother's got a headache and wants to lie down and be quiet, and so I've got to take you out, and we can't coma back for an hour. Just as I'm re.ling that new bxsjk, too, its a shame." The little girls look up at their sister's very dis contented face in dismay. They don't want to go out at ...

Football. NORTH V. ESSENDON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

Football. NORTH V. ESSENDON. BY "ROVER." The first meeting of the above-named clubs took place at the N.M. Reserve on Saturday last, and furnished the surprise of the day, if not of the season. The ground was in a frightful sloppy condi tion, and a high wind which blew towards the Arden-street goal further interfered with the play. There was a fairly large attendance in spite of the threatening weather, the local followers being espe cially strong in numbers. Rolent won the toss, and decided to take advantage of the high wind and dry ball. The North immediately forced the play, and kept Essendon's backs at their wits' end to prevent North scoring. The change of ends found North leading by one goal (from a splendid kick by Reid) and four behinds to Essendon's nil. This is the first time for many years that the premiers have not managed to score even a minor point in the opening quarter. With the change the red and black had a bit the best of the play, and at half-time had scored t go...

William Upworth, Farmer. AN ORIGINAL STORY IN THREE CHAPTERS. CHAPTER I [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

WIlliam Upworth; Farmer.. AN OBIGINAL STOBT IN TH?EE CHAPTERS. CHAPTEB I i life there is pleasure, in life ther is pain; And he who seideth the aunshine, sendeth also the rain. Mrs. Shackleton had been asleep. She had dreamed a dream in her sleep, and she -was pleased with it ; partly because it was a religious dream, and also lecause it flattered herself For it does not fall to every woman's lot to dream that she is a poet; and, moreover, to give evidence of her right to the title by composing many verses of poetry in her dream. That was what Mrs. Shackleton had done. She could not remember any more of her poems when she awoke than the two lines quoted atthe head of this chapter : In life there is pleasre, in life there ispain" And He who sendcth the sunshine, seideth also the rain. But they, at any rate, were something. She had always suspected that there was more ability than she herselfthought, and she arose from her rocking-chair with a pleased laugh at her own performance, re ...

Sporting Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

Sporting Items. The V.A.T. Club hold a race meeting at Caulfield to-morrow. Six races are listed, the principal being the Handicap Steeple chase of £150, in which a number of last Saturday's Grand National Steeple contes tants will again meet. The meeting will doubtless be a successful one, despite the unpropitious state of the weather, as the perfect arrangements at Caulfield heath preclude any insinuation to the contrary. The Winter Meeting of the V.R.C. was wound up last Saturday to a mode rate attendance. The club had the mis fortune to carry cut their rich programme of stakes under unfavorable circum stances, but nevertheless which could not be wholly unexpected for the season o! the year.

SHAKING HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

SHAKING HANDS. George Meikle Kemp, the architect of the Scott Monument at Edinbornugh, was a man who raised himself from obs curity by sheer force of talent and deter mination. He had a retiring nature,and, a shy and shrinking manner towards strangeas. The habit of hand-shaking created in him an embarrassment and aversion which he could scarcely contrcl and one of his friends gives an amusing description of the manner in which he accomolished the deed when it became inevitable. The two were walking along one of the streets of Edinburgh, in the full flow of an animated conversation, when Kemp suddenly became aware of a friend ap proaching them in the opposite direc tion. Instantly the current of his thought was arrested, he lost the thread of con versation, and then became silent alto' gether. A whimsically troubled expression crept over his face, and a nervous com motion developed itself in his manner. Extraordinary movements began in his righi hand and arm, which he kept dangling a...

HOW TO TAKE A REAL HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

HOW TO TAKE A REAL HOLID)AY, Take your holiday in bed, if you are wise. People have tried a holiday in bed before now, and found it a failure, but that was because they were ignorant of the rules. They went to bed with the open intention of staying there, say, three days, and found to their surprise that each morning they wanted to get tup. The proper thing is to take your holiday in bed with the vague intention of getting up in another quarter of an hour. The real pleasure of lying in bed after you are awake is largely due to the feeling that you ought to get up. To take another quarter of an hour then be comes a luxury. To enjoy your holiday in bed to the full, you should let it be vaguely under stood that there is something amiss with you. Don't go into details,for they are unnecessary ; and besides, you want to be dreamy more orless,and the dreamy state is not consistent with a definite ailment. The moment one takes to bed he gets sympathy. He may be suffering from a tearing hea...

"Gas and Gaiters." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

"Gas and Gaiters." Br "Fsa-veum The talented company at the Theatre Royal nightly draws immense audiences. Unquestionably Mr. C. Holloway's en gagement by the proprietary has been a financial success in every way. It could not very well be otherwise, when the mounting of the plays is of such wealth and the company includes no dead stock. "A King of Crime" has been kept on for the second week in compliance with the request of a number of patrons, who de sired to witness a repetition of this suc nessfnl d-ama. To-morrow night .Mr. H.

History-of -the Women's Franchise Movemhent in Victoria, Continued. By S. BARKER, J.P. The Society was now fairly started on its public career. The several commit tees had set themselves to work with a will, burn of a high hope and a noble purpose. The late Chief Justice, Gee. Higinbotham, had given' the infant Society sage counsel, He was very solicitous that the members should not ask too much at this, its itnception, but secure the main principle-public ap probation-also the inclusion of the clericals, lawyers, and others who had strong prejudices to jin tile Society, and so create a strong political opinion. His Honor's heavy judicial duties pre vented his taking any prominent part in the Society's work, but lie allowed his name to her.d the list. and gave £3 as his yearly subscripticn.

OWNED THE EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

OWNED THE EARTH. A good story is told of a distinguished American who made a tour of Europe last summer. In Belgium he walked into a shc-p and called for a cigar. Several were thrown on the counter. ' How much are they worth?" he asked. "Three for a quarter of a dollar," an swered the shopkeeper glibly. "Why, you must take me for an American ?" " Of course I do." " How came you to guess my nation aL.ty so easily ?" "Because when an Englishman comes in here he asks for a cigar. pays for it and walks out." "Well, when one of you Americans come in here, you walk up to the counter, and call for a cfgar just as if you owned the whole blessed earth. The American threw down the money, picked up the cigar, and walked out without a word. There is no accounting for taste ex cept on the principle that some people haven't any.

Serip-Scrap. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

Scrip-Scrap. Br Jonu'uy COPs. 'In a familiar style your thought. convey. And write such things as, present you would say." Some months ago I predicted that there would be no dissolution of Parliamcnt be fore the expihy of the three years for which it wvas elected. Still, although there is up to the present every appear-. :nce that the forecast will be fulfilled, the fact of delaying a general election with out a patriotic reason for such delay is a matter whieh shculd be commented on as something to be deplored. For want of a little healthy public spirit the members of the present House-or, at all events, a mnajority of them-keep in power one of the most incapable Cabinets that ever held sway in Victoria. When I use the term "incapable" I mean as applied to anything good. Capable of doing wrong they certainly are, and, worse than all, when the blunders they commit are pointed out, the, have tne hardihood to brazen out their folly, and desire to obtain credit for it as wisdom !

GRIEF WITH ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

GRIEF WITH ECONOMY. "There are funny incidents in the life of a photographer," said a .well-known portrait taker. " A countryman came in the other day and looked over my col lection, asking variouis questiodis." "' Do you wanit a sitting? I asked. "' I don'tsee nothin' like what I want, he replied. - "I told him that if he would indicate wvhat he wanted that I might arrange it. "' I don't kiow as you can,' he said, for I don't see nothin here atall like what I want.' "I repeated what I" had already said. He asked me to sit while he.told me. "'You see, it's like this,' he began. LI had a girl that I loved and we was goin to git spliced. She had her thingsmade up, and we was all but ready when she was took ill and died. And what I wanted was a picture of me sittin' on her grave weepin.'

Correspondence. WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

Correspondence. WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE. TO THIE EDIT.IL. SIr,--ZIr. WVatt's latest attempT to bolster u Wuomen's Suffrage is brit a rehash of his former somewhat confused expressiors upon that subject. The same stale platitudes and vague generali ties are repeated--quite regardless of the fact they have been alrendy refuted --until their repetition has berme monotonous, and makes one think that, like Po-'s "Raven," he utters his "only stock and store." Tt may be well to hrie.ly summarise and review the aruuments 'lht have been advanced by Mr. Watt, so that lihe may have a further opportunoiy of realis ing the absurdity of his contemtiotms. * He states that every persons who " pays taxes and obeys the laws " should lihve equal political power with every other individual in the State. That it would be "just and expedient " to grant tlhi. power; that? manhood suffrage was extended for these reasons, and " there fore consistency demands that women should get the vote."

WHY HE CARRIED IT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

WHY HE CARRIED IT. Some few years since, residents of the little village of S- prided themselves upon the beauty of its principal " street," its over-arching trees, its well-kept walks, and general neatness. Only one thing was lacking; there were no street lights. Fi nally some public-spirited residents sug gested the purchase of a dozen lamps. The idea met with general approval save from one old man, Mr. Black, who made it a rule to object to everything that he had not suggested himself. He declared the pro-. ject a foolish extravagance and loudly pro tested against it. But the lamps were purchased and set at regular distances along the village street. Each lamp was to be cared for by the per son near whose house it stood. This arrangement answered very well, and the street was sufficiently well lighted, al though occasionally some one would forget to light his lamp. Mr. Black evidently did not think so. During the winter evenings he was fre quently noticed going about with a lante...

ABSORBED IN THE UNREAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

ABSORBED IN THE UNREAL. Some authors are firmly convinced of the reality of the men and women whom their minds have created. It is said that Dickens was obligep to tell Mrs. Gamp. his immortal nurse, that if she didn't stop whispering funny things to him, he would leave her out of print altogether; and there have been other writers of fiction who have even thought and spoken of their characters as if they were more real than reality itself. Edmund Gosse has told us that he was one day talking with Robert Browning of some common acquaintance. The poet 'seemed to take but a languid interest in the conversation, but suddenly broke into a vivid and passionate apology of an act of his own " Colombe," a favourite character from one of his poems. The novelist Balzac also found it hard to transfer his interest from fiction to actual life. All his men and women were his actual associates, whether as enemies or or beloved friends. One day an acquaintanne asked Balzac for some particulars of t...

HAD ANOTHER CUTLET. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

HAD ANOTHER CUTLET. The Brazilian nabob, Baron Fereau, who died not long since, was as miserly in trifles as he was extravagant in other directions. It was one of his peculiarities never to fee eorvants, and the waiters of the various hotels at which he sojourned wete, for that reason, not very partial to him. One morning, while staying at the mag nificent Mlaux Hotel, in Rio de Janeiro, he came down to breakfast, and ordered a cut let. After he had eaten it he ordered a second. "Baron," said the bead waiter, malici ously, " it is a custom with usnever to serve the same course twice at a meal." " Is that so?" said Fereau. and, rising from his seat, he left the room. In ten minutes he came back into the dining room. " Waiter," said he, " I have just bought this notel, and am master here now. As you will not be able to get accustomed to my plan of serving the guests according to their wishes, you are dismissed at once. Thereupon he took up his serviette again, and called to another wa...

SEEING A JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894

SEEING A JOKE. A well-known writer tells a good story with regard to the obtuseness of many Eng lish people in seeing a joke. Having occasion once in London to iii troduce two Englishmen by the names of Christmas and Holiday, he felt that he really could not do so aithout making some reference to their peculiar names, which he did by saying, with a smile " I take it you must be related to each other." "No," said Mr. Christmas-" no, I think not." Mr. Holiday, who appeared to be the more aristocratic of the two, drew himself up in a stately manner, and replied "I know our family very well, and we have no connection with any by the name of Christmas." Then he immediately changed the sub ject to matters of business. Some days after, in discussing the sub ject of the wit of various nations with an exceedingly agreeable English friend, who remarked that the majority of English people.were slow to see a joke, he quoted this instance as a case quite in point. When "e had finished his story,...
