DRESSED IN WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894
DRESSED IN WHITE. Twas, quite clearly I remember, On a Snid;ay in September, Sunday night; And in church we were together, She-a night of summer weather Dressed in white. I'd no book, by some omission, And the space of our diviston Lesser grew ; -Lesser grew since she, perceiving Plight, half hers would be relieving, Nearer drew. Then, if finge s stayed together Round the soft morocco leather, :n that song; If in singing, I leant nearer To her cheek, to read the clearer, Was it wrong? Was it wrong ? The cheek was blush ing Next to mine, and mine was flushing Next her sighs. If I thrilled was it amazing At the unexpected raising Of her eyes? And, I always shall remtenmber, 'Twas a morning in December, Frosty, bright ; That, in church again together, She was rightly-'spite the weather Dressed in white.
DREADFUL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 3 August 1894
DREBADFUL .How glad I am, dearie, that our tastes are so very .similar," said young Mrs. Honeylip to her husband when they had re turned from their bridal tour and .era fur nishing the lli"t in which they were.to be " so perfectly happy." " We agree about everything, don't we, darling?" she continued. " We both want cardinal and gray to be the prevailing tones in the parlour, -we agreed exactly about the blue room, and both wanted oak for the din ing room and hall. We like the same -kind of chairs. Ot, we agree exactly. don t we, and how nicec it is ! I'd feel dreslful if wa didn't agree, particularly about any impor tant thing." 'So would 1, darling," he said. 'Ia's lovely t's live in such perfect hIarmony. Now, I guess I'll hang this lovely little water c;olour your aunt gave us right over this cabinet, shan't I ?" "I don't hardly know, love. Wouldn't it took better over that bracket on the opposite wall?" SI hardly think so, love; the light is so much better here." - "Do you thin...
WIT IN THE PULPIT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 3 August 1894
SWIT IN THE PULPIT. Although an extreme gravity of demeanour is generally considered essential to the proper conduct of religious services, num berless e3amples are on record in which the occupant of a pulpit has thought it riot in consistent whlh his position to indulge in outbursts of wit, or to give free reign to his sense of humour. In some instances, of course, this has been done deliberately, for the purpose of more thoroughly engaging the attention of the congregation; but the effects have been occasionally somewhat startling. Sydney Smith was once preaching to a con gregation in Edinburgh, mad; up almost ex clusively of ladies. He chore for his text the words, "0 that men would therefore praise the Lord," laying special stress on the word men, and looking signiticantly around the church. The Rev. Dr. Howard, rector of. St. George's, Scuthwark, and chaplain to Prin cess Augusta, was so fond of good living that he ran considerably into debt with many of the tradesmnon in his p...
THE CASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 3 August 1894
THE CASTLE. In the heart of a mighty forest Bose a castle gray and old, And its loophole grates in the smncet Flashed, gleaming like burnished gold" Of old, from its highest turret, Waved a banner broad and gagy, And warriors tall, on the castle wall, Keept guard both night and day. In the courtyard, chargers trampled: . In the hall, both squire and knight Vied, eager to win the favour Of many a lady bright. And over the clattering drawbridgo Oft rode some young gallant away, To strive forithe spurs of knighthood, At the feet hi his lady to lay. And as oft from a loophole window Looked some maiden's lovely face, To. smile to her own true lover And wave him a parting grace. But now in the topmost tower Is many a wild bird's nest, And the bats and owls fly shrieking, When some chance disturbs their rest. And in the hall where fair ladies . Once listened to knightly speech, The moonlight lies on the roofless floor, In nue long, unbroken reach.. -',The lopphole from rwhich sweet maidens...

HASTY MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 3 August 1894
HASTY MARRIAGES. Better too long a courtship than a short one. Undue haste aften results in un speakable misery in matrimonial aliances. .vae is proverbially blind; he is more a is wilfuly blind, and should be made to open his eyes. A little corn n sense mingles advantage:usiy with everything; so far from being o:ut of place. it is abso ,utely essential to safety in affairs of the heart. Many a girl has had her whole happiness for life destroyed because she obstinately chose toe form her estimate of the character of a suitor exclusively by his behaviour toward her, and his profes sions of love, rather than by his conduct toward others. It is a pretty safe rule that a man whose whole life is but an e?x esrplification of selfishness, will not long continue generous in relation to his wife. Character is seldom revolutionised by marriage. There may be a slight reform temporarily; it rarely lasts long. And men suffer as well as women from ill ssarted marriages.

He gives the following sketch of what he s3aw on the Silver Banks, near Hayti: "The banks ofthe coral on which my divings were made are about forty miles in length, and from ten to twenty in breadth.

" The water varies frnao ten to one hun dred feet in depth, end is so clear that the diver cansee from two to three hundred feet while submerged, with very little ob struction to the sight. "The bottom of the ocean in many places on these banks is as smooth as a marble floor in others -t is studded with coral columns, irom tet to one hundrcd feet in height, and from one to eight feat in diameter.

A GRA VEYARD - ADVENTURE. "Then, boys, I Buppo. I have to go T" I addressed tle party with a cheerf'ul tone of affected indifttrer.ce, in hopes that come one among the number, more fond of midnight adventures than I, would v-olunteer to act as my substitute. " Yes," replied one of the students, smiling, "the die has cast your lot." .-" Hlaviing secured in me a tool to serve their purpose, they iushed me success i= my adventureo; and, bidding me good night, I coon found myself alone in the dissecting-rooni. As I sought for the implemrsts requisite for such an adven ture as I was about to engage in, I in, wardly wished tl?t I had never begun the study of medicine ; and bitter were the invectives I cast against the fate that had selected me as the unfortunate one.

TOBOGANS AND TOBOGANING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 3 August 1894
TOBOGANS AND TOI3BOGANING. A tobogan is a kind of sledge, or " sled," as they say in America. It is made of a plankof birch, in length from six to eight leat, about eighteen inches or two feet broad, and with a maxnimum thickncss of consider-ably under a third of an inch. -. is strengthened, moreover, by the addition of braces made of some firnt wood placed at a distance of a foot apart. About two fret of the front portion is turned up and back, nnd the bend thus formed is kept in shape 7by two strings of catgut. With thle addition ot • leading lines" for pulling it abut. cushions for sitting on, and a neatly painttc.l name, you have a tobogan of the most fer ekt-kin?.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 3 August 1894
Correspondence. TO TOE EDITOr. Sin,--Noticing in you issue of the 29th, inst., reference to the state of the City Council's side ot the Fiemington road, I thought it would be well were you to l,,k around a bit nearer home, and draw the attention of our own Council to the state of the road in Mun ster Terrace. Last week 1 saw a child attempt to cross this street, and before it had gone far stuck fast, and was only released by an elder chi:d pulling it out by main force. I have seen some bush tmrackis in no worse state than this road is in-and a so-called city street. This, sir, ought not to be tolerated by the -ratepayers for one moment. Trusting that wrhen you have drawn attention to this matter, the scrapers will be put to work, and soamne metal will take the place of this mud. Thanking you in anticipation, I am, A SPE8 TATOR.
