BEES WORK AT NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 June 1894
BEES WORK AT NIGHT. In answer to the question, Do bees work all night? the editor of Gleanings in' Bee Culture replies:--"Bees work all night whenever there is work to be done ; and there is always more or less to be done during almost every month in the year. Brood is fed all night as much as in the day-time. Cells are prepared for the queen to lay in, and the Queen goes on with egg-laying just the same. Dlr ing the honey seas n, more comb is built during the night than at any other time, and both pollen and honey are taken from the cells, where the workers deposit the honey during the clay, and properly pack it away and seal it over." Fashionable A?nt: You ought to acquire the faculty of being at home in the best society." Nephew :-"I manage that easily enough, by staying at home with my wife.."

HOW TO TAKE LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 June 1894
HOW TO TAKE LIFE. Take life like a man ;,TakeiSt just as though it was-as it is-an earnest. vital, essential affair. :Take it just as though you personally were born to the task of perform ing a merry part in it-as though, the world had waited for your coming. Take it as though it was a grand opportunity to do and to achieve, to carry forward great and good schlemes; to help 'and cheer a suffering. weary, it may) be heart-broken brother' The fact is,life is undervalued by a grea majority of mankind. 'It is notl made half as much of at should be the case Where is the man or woman' who accomlllishes dn tithe of; what might be done ? Who cannot look. back upon opportuoities lost. plans.unachieved, thoughts crushed, aspirations unfulfilled, and all calsed fromi the lack of the necessary and. lpos?iile effort !

He 5'od. She was forty-nine if she was a day. He was twenty-two, and he had to lend his watch to a friend in the other car tc keep it from stopping while he sat if the sama seat with her on the train. "Are you a traveling man ?" she asked, ruddenl-. "Yes, medam, I am." "In what line, sir?" "Groceries, madam." "it is you then, you horrid, horrid man! Aren't you ashamed of yourself, to so annoy a lone woman traveler?" "I, madam? What do you mean?" - "Oh, you base wretch; you know it it gou that has been scattering rice all over the floor to make people think we are a young married couple!" He took one look at that face, dashed to the car platform, and, though his baggage has been held two weeks at the station, he has never appeared to claim it.

A Bank Teller's Story. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 June 1894
A fBlnk Teller's Stoy. I hare met with some odd character, a miy time, and one of them is a mss, who comes in about twice a week, lap down a dime or two nickels, and ask for ten bright, new cents. After he hlid done this a hali-dozen times I began te expect him and later to have a curiosity to know what he did with them, as ] observed that he always placed them car~efutly in his fob pocket. One day my curiosity overcame my politeness. and I asked him bluntly what he did with the pennies. He blushed, smiled in a deprecating way and said they were for the children. Eut not for his own, understand; no, for the waifs of the street. Whenever he met a crying o, sorry looking child he tossed it a penny. Then hew quickly smiles chased away tears I I fell to thinking over the whole matter, and found myself trying to fig ure out, in some such manner as we compute interest, the amount of hanoi ness that man got out of 10 cents,Athe price of an ordinury ciger, and the resuli is I always carry a...

Her robes are stiff with diamonds, and the strands of price less pearls, with their great pear-shaped pendants fall like a network nearly to her feet. Scarcely an inch of textile fabric can be seen, for the entire train is covered with embroidery in gold and pearls and lined with Russian sable. The imperial treas...
