TORMENTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 1 April 1893

TORMEN TORS. The mius or woman who seems to have adopted the fuacti.n of destroying tbe peace of every one who allows himself to be disturbed by a rancorous tongue is generally a cov-rdand crefully avoids those who are not afraid to retort upon their tormentor. Nothing is safe from peopie of this order; they love to destroy a friend's faith in his friend, a girl's faith in her lover. They rve thror the harmless egotism which make. nan stand fairly well in his own esteim by c'ciously holding the mirror up to nature. The- are the terrors of clubs, the scourges or married life, the c:.uses of 'i-sunion amona friends. the sor rees , f most evil-pea king, lying and slandering, and the oijec s of a timid ha'e and fear wherever trey go. Alas ! poor sou:s, through what unhappiness have they dragged themselves before they le.rned to .:ate all h± pinea in others' Moreover, the end cf the general tormen t r is that he be ones the seif-tormentcr, like Hood's hedgehog, " Tormenting himself with ...

THE GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 April 1893

THE GENERAL. 1BY ISAAC BATEY]. Be out' condition hiMh orilow,achl one of us, in pedantic language, inhabits his owin microcosu often bounded by a hor izon:of iriconsequentitl nothingness, in perfect keeping with the mind bias of the individual. ... Thus it lies within the scope of all to create a happy thought, ofteri a iidiclloiu little world for them selves. Nautically speaking, I am tarred with the same brush, seeing that I have created my small world in ink ,and if no profit has been derived therefrom, I have had the satisfaction of amusing ,manyi and ruffling the feathers of a few. With this prelude, as I a'n a gunning ma;i, figuratively, I will take some snap-shots at " The. General " in. my own particular style. In so doing, much will be related that is of a very trivial nature, but smack ing as it does of the manners of the time, doubtless it will interest my readers. Besides that consideration, the majri.ty of the people have merely a traditionary idea that a man named Jack...

SFROM 'OURi OWN CORntESPODENT.] We had a bit of a break-up in the weather- on: Good Friday, and it was badly -wanted as the. farmers had their ploughs ready as soon as they saw it threatening, A party: from Melbourne had rather an unpleasant experience on Good Fiiday. They were driving down the Lighthouse Gully Hill when the horse bolted and ran against a fence, tossing the occupants on to the road. One young man got badly cut. about the head and was at once taken to Mel bourne, where' :his Wounds were sewn up. The horse was killed on the spot and the trai smased into pieces. A- cricket -match was played on the Bulla cricket ground on Good Friday between the local team and a team styling) themselves "Shining Lights."

PER FAVOR OF THE EDITOR. THE BAY TRIP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 April 1893

PER FAVOR OF THE EDITOR. THE BAY TRIP. On Easter Tuesday last the Field Naturalist and Psych ;l gical Society of Sunbury, which was formed last March, paid its first visit to Sorrento, and, althouh the we.ather' looked somewhat doubtfull and breezy, the day proved most. enjoyable. As Rsoon as the roomy quarterdeck of the " Hygi;a" was rea'hed, President Johnston took the chair, and several important matters aflecting the society were discussed. The question of ' Mal-de-Mfere' was referred to-and although ruled out of order by the president, it proved the "order of the day." The absooce of an important member of the society was als, casually referred to-but the president explained that facility of detachment being a disting uishing feature of the society, he would not allow the matter to be discussed. [Some members here interjected that, psychically speaking, the absence of the member referred to was known to them several days in advance.] The president ruled the remark out of order,...

S.Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY. APRIL 8th, 1893. Wa stated in our last issue that the election to fill the vacancy in the West Riding of the Shire of Bulla, caused by the regretted death of Councillor Loeman, would be one of the most exciting and interesting ever witnessed. in Sunbury, as no less than six gentle men were mentioned as candidates for the municipal honour-but as it turns out to be-they were simply mentioned, and only two out of the six have been nominated. They are :-Mr Robert Evans, Emu Bottom ; and Mr Samuel Davis, Holden. We believe Mr Evans does not contemplate addressing the ratepayers before polling day, as he deems it quite superfluous considering it is just about aine months ago since his municipal views appeared ie?t tiz. paper. . That was the time 1iwhen1 he contested against Councillor Gellie, now president of Bulla Shire :Council The competition between these twvo was very keen and Mr Gellie won the day by three votes.

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 April 1893

NEWS AND NOTES. Tu' suspension of the Gommercial bank came as a thunderbolt upon nearly all business communities but Sunbury, although sorry, does not feel much alarm over the situation. However, great consternation is being felt amongst the farmers around the Bulla district, most of whom are large depositors. A few people about the Gap, we understand, are also in a great state of agitation. There is no doubt about the inconvenience to business people of such a serious event just at the end of the quarter, but it is to be hoped that it will be .as brief as possible. It is the unfortunate shareholder upon whom the severest weight of the blow falls. The Sunbury Mechanics' Institurto had about .90 deposit. Shall I teach you what knowledge is ?
