THE PRETTY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
THE PRETTY WOMAN. Apretty woman must first of all have clearly-cut, regular features. She must have full, clear eyes. She must have a skin that is above re proach, untouched by rouge or powder. She must have glossy hair thaf has never known, tt thtuch of bleach or dye: She must have a good figure, plump. enough. yet slender enough, though nev er suggestive at an angle. She must have a white, expressive hand, preftrably a small one, but not of a necessity, if it is well kept and white. She must have small ears,and a throat that is like a miable -lisuifi fir her head. She must know how to put on her clothes, or she loses half her beauty. She must fully understand what best suits her in the way of hair dressing, and cling closely to that. A woman may have all these attrac tions and unless her own personality is charming, nnless she has tact, it dawns on you, after you have seen her once or twice, that she is not a pretty woman,but a pretty doll.

A Narrowr Escape. A NASF'V GASH. An extremely narrow escape from instant death was experienced about sight o'clock on Thursday evening last by a-man named John Lord, 6o years of age, who resides at Hudson street, Coburg. It appesrs that Lord was in the act of crossing the Coburg railway line at one of the level crossings when he observed a train close upon him: A moment's hesitation would have ended his career on this earth, so he made a a dash to pass in front of the engine, but the guard iron struck him on the right leg, and laid it open from the knee down to the ankle. The unfortunate man was at once conveyed to the Melbourne Hospital. where he was adm'tted and received the necessary attention. The doctors entertain a hope !that amputation will not be necessar-.

Should the Franchise be Extended to Women? (Contributed). [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
Should the Franchise be Extended to Women ? By "Ecao." (Contibuted). -A writer says:-" It is self-evident, as that two and two make four, that human beings born under the same conditions ought to have the same general rights, nd'why are the conditions so different in this case?" That is, between men and women. There is no one that I am aware of who understands anything of political matters would deny to women the same general rights that are common to men. No man, nor no body of men, has any right to give to the human race that which belongs to him. Natural rights are the hereditary possession of every man and woman born into this world. I know very well that men and women have lost their natural rights; they have been snatched from them by the insatiable hand of greed. In satiableness always leads to presumption -and a presumption of the most arrogant kind-and this presumption is the last sin that mankind will repent of, and hence it will continue as long as the human race exists, ...
"Gas and Gaiters." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
"Gas-and Gaiters. " By "Fszxzt." I take it that it is only right that my opening "par" should be that of extend ing the fist of welcome to the Brough Boucicault combination, which takes root, in the production, to-morrow night, of "'The Second Mrs. Tanqueray," at the Princess's Theatre. Ever since its initial production in London, some time back, Mr. Pinero's play has been an abounded success. It cannot lose anything in its interpretation by the B.B. firm. It is said to be one of the finest plays which modern acumen has brought forth, and during its lengthy run in Sydney it gained the highest econiums of the most critical of theatrical experts. "It's Never too Late to Mend," as the old grandame said when she heeled the familystocking, filled the Alexandra pro gramme during the week, and has drawn the usual number of thousands who fre quent this pleasurable resort of the pub lic Mr. Dan Barry as Peter Crawley and Mr. F. C. Appleton, the old Mel bourne favorite, as John Meadows, ex ce...
Football. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
Football. There was no football last Saturday; that is, there was no premiership match. owing to the players from all the clubs being engaged in the intercolonial contest which resultad very dis;astrously for the South Australians. The local representa tives kept up the reputation of the team admirably, and had the rest of the team only played as well on the following Mon day we would not have the sorrowful duty of" Gazette "-ing a defeat at the hands of our visitors from Adelaide.
U.A.O.D. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
U.A.O.D. -... Last Tuesday night, the Cre'cent Lodge, of the above order provided amnuseurent and instruction f.ir the imem bers and their friends. The nmusement lay mainly in the direction of harmony, some of it slightly discordant, but, taking the will for the deed, each ef:,rt was listened to quietly till the performer was finished, except in the case of one vocalist, who, after struggling valiantly to enter the dwelling of harmony with the o"lar --lkoy, .wile- his accoum panyist was equally successfully attempting the feat with the front door key, at last ad mitted himself beaten, and sIught refuge in his seat, leaving the pianist to finish by hi'nself or follow the example set. Recitations were few in number, but the absence of quantity was more than com pensated for in quality; ' Druidism, Past and Present," an original com position by Bro. C. Drake (Mona Lodge), and recited by h'mself, was es pecially well received, and a humorous piece by Bro. Allen so took the audieace that...

The salubrious climate of Beech woith was evidently not warm enough for Eliza Short, so sle cams to town; Her movements in the city d, not appear to have een rharacterised by discretior, as she was arrested by the police on warrant, and brought before the bench as a vagrant.

William Upworth, Farmer. AN OBIGI NAL STORY I. THREE CHAPTERS. C" CHAPTER II. -For a month things went on thus, and teLn there came a change.

It -was true Mrs.Furness assumed the mysterious air of-one who could tell something if she would, whenever the "sunbj?ct of Mr. Upworth's matrimonial intentions was brought before here. In spite of this, however, suspicion began to veer. round into the right quarter.

History of the Women's Franchise Movement in Victoria Continued. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
-History of the Women's Franchise Movement in Victoria BY- S. BARKERI J.P. Continued. The committee sent their leaflets to all the papers in the colony; nor was there a prominent citizen that did not receive one of their bright missives. The committee were kept well up to their work by the multifarious events that were arising. Letters appearing in the papers needed answering; de =bai were discussing the estio and n note -marrng if' he 'meambers of the committee would at tend or send some one to represent them. They had made it a live ques tion, and s ere now called upon to sus tain that life with their own vitality. They projected a series of public meet ings, at which they hoped to provoke public opinion upon the question of Women's Suffrage. Public opinion at the time was, if not quite hostile, not very sympathetic, judging from a re port of one of the canvassers, who sent in his resignation, that the public were not sufficiently educated up to the ob ject of the Society.

A BEAUTIFUL SPONGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
A BEAUTIFUL SPONGE. "Some of the most beautifal things. that live in the ocean are the sponges of the great depths, which have often very curious and interesting forms," said a atscJulist. "Not the- last remarkable Sae the so-called 'sea nests,' which are io the form of spheres or sometirnes egg shaped. The oater coat of one of these e?cimzns is a complicated network, over which a delicate membrane is spread. An ornamental frill adorns the upper part while the lower portion throws ,out a maze of glossy. filaments like fine white hairs. These hairs penetrate the semi-fluid mud in every direction, thus holding the sponge in its place, while a continuous current of water is drawn by waving 'cilia' through ail parts of the mass, passing out by a hole at the top. In this manner the animal absorbs what. eyver food may be afloat. -Detroit Free PreUs. The woman who enters the street car Iwith two big market baskets knows that she's unwelcome to the passengers, and fire knowledge of the fact...
Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
Correspondence. TO TEE EDIToiu. U)ESn Sir.-I am astonished at the ir2digerence shown by the representative of the ward, in not urging the council to construct a footpath across Flizabeth street, at the jnuction of Victoria-street, where thousands of people have to pass, especially is this the case on market days. I must say it is no treat to cross at this junction. I would also like to draw attentina to a lamp which I think might be altered a little: The one I refe?to is on the corner of Chetwynd and Victeria-streets, outside of Saligari's wine .shop, which appears as if it had been imbibing too freely of the wines kept in the said shop. I hope when the `councilors pass this point coming home from the next ban quet, that they will have a little sympathy with it, and see that it is put right. Yours etc., AN AGGRIEVED ONE.
WHAT BULGES THE B[?] PLATES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
WHAT. BULGES THIE ii :'.: PLATES >. authority upoi thi..e~i j- t .%i3 that hknging or bulging "f b?o?l .rp atss over the tire is in nearly erery case traced to the use of oil in the boiler. Oil is sometimes fed to boilors by the false economy of turning the exhaust steam into the water tank, where the enigine oil is caught, and whence that oil is pumjrd with the water into the boiler. Oil gathers the scum aud dirt into a caki, which may settle on the fire sheet, and thus prevelt contact with the water.

HE COULDN'T FORGET HIM. The patron looked like a generous man, and afier the waiter had served the order he hovered about the table. He evidently had been trained on the idea that a good waiter is practically a noise less one whl? says nothing. "Steak all righl, sahl ?" he asked. SI haven't tasted it yet," replied the patron coldly. The waiter said, "All riglht, sah." and moved td the other side. of the table. When the steak had been tiied, he ven tured " Rare enough, sar ?" "It will do." There was another pause,and then the waiter asked " Potatoes cooked right, sah?" The patron beckoned for him to come nearer.
