Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. WOM-AN'S SFFR.AGE. your correspondent "Watchful Eye," has likened me to Poe's Itaven for alleged re dundancy. The analogy is a singularly unfortunate one, and suggests the Un happy similarity between himself and the sorrow laden dreamer, to whomr the con sistent lird cioaked its convincing monody. It is sometimes necessary to resort to tautology in order that thi truths cuunci. ciated may find iodging in the conscious ness of one's o.;ponents. MIy last letter vwas a resume of the arguments t'o and con on this question, and was, accordingly specially designed to be rzcapitulatory throuloat. Notwithstauding this, hov ever, "Watchful Eye ha:s failed to g'-sp the import of my contoelions, or els.e nmis distorted my statentl:lts to suit his specious arguments. I dliL not say that "all the qualifications necessat-y for go verning properly were possesse.l by every person who happens to pay taxes and obey the laws." M?.y position is this.

".The Elections. There w'as but little excitement evinced for the annual Municipal Elections in the town. Cr. Carter (the prospective mayor-elect) having been returnedx unopposed for the AMiddle WYard, and the faithful services orf the genial veteran, Cr. Costello, being recognised in a simi'ar manner by the Western Ward electors, there was only one contest, and that was in the E.\STERK WARD. The candidates for the repre-: sentation of this portion of the town were Cr. Ca:no (retiring) and DMr. %V. H. Fuller, .T.P. But little excitement; was aroused over the representation of this portion of the town. The poll;ng place was in the Wesleyan Schoolroom, Howard-street, over which Cr. J. Bar wise offic:ated as Returning Officer, Mr. 1arwise, jun. as Deputy, and Messrs. Kingston and Alexander as Poll Clerks. Both sides were active in their can vas, the retiring councillor being greatly assised by the mayor and his friends. Mr. Fuller seemed, from a cursory. glance to have the friendship o...

HANDEL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
- . . RAN.DED BYr lttARGBiET J 1OY000. Bare and cold the garret chamber, : Gloomy with its shadows di ; Hung with dusty, drooping cobwebs, Drapery weird and grim. Rattled loud the loosened casement, Bleak the night-wind rose and fell; In the pauses of its wailing Tolled tbe midnight bell. Suddenly from out the shadows Of the old, deserted room Came a strain of faintest music Through the ghostly gloom. Fiercer howled the wind and stronger Swelled the strain exultingly, Till there rolled among the rafters Waves of melody. While the night grew still to listen, Soft and slow the music sighed, And, in melting, minor measures, Into silence died. Say, what skilful, rapt musician, In that lonely room apart, Thus made glad the sombre midnight With his wondrous art? From the moon, now bright, no, hidden In the clouds that crossed her way, Through the misty garret window' Shot a slender ray Glanced upon an ancient spinet, O'er whosa keys, with dust defiled, Ran the eager, dainty fingers Of a l...

THE THRUSH'S NEST. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
THE THRUSH'S NEST. "Mamnma,. dear." cried Johnny, "there's such a lovely brd in that hedge, with spots on his breast, and he sings such a pretty song." Just then a thrush flew out of the hedge, and away over the field into a tree. " H ere, Johnny, let us .ec if we can find its nest.' said mamma: " but .re must be careful not tc touch it." And looking quietly into the hedge there was the pretty nest, snugly tixcd in tlhe branches, and partly hidden by leaves. "Oh, mamma, do let nie have it " said Johnny. "What sweet little eg;s .' "No, my dear boy. Wha-it would poor birdic say when she came back and futnd that some one had stolen her e-g-. that she loves so much ? That would 0 ot be like a kind little boy to do such a cruel action. Let us coume away and see if tl c mnther bird twill come back."

ALL ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
ALL ABROAD. "A representative Australian went to visit Europe a while, back, and- took his wife in tow. She had- saved up a dc:d of lucre, but he was very deficient as a linguist.; most representative Australians are. This man's name was George. He had some more nanie, but George is elnough for us. His first dinner in France was -eaten at one of the big hotels in the capital. His wife was with him. They consulted the bill of fare, and George pointed with his finger to the first item. The waiter bowed, went off and soon returned with a copious sup plhyof soup for two. It was palatable, and George did full justice- Consulting the bill of fare once more, he -pointed to the second item, somewhat to the sur prise of the garcon. But he nodded his head emphatically, and ejaculated "oui " two or three times. The conquered wiaiter brought him two more plates of soup. George had to pretend now that he was very fond of soup,.so he ate it w-ith great relish, although it had a very filling effec...
THE LUCKY GUESS OF AN ANXIOUS LOVER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
THE LUCKY GUESS OF AN: ANXIOUS LOVER. With a gesture expressive of firm reso lution as if the affair was quite settled, the Countess Madeline pointed to her lacquered Japanese cabinet that 'sheite mered in the lamplight and said veiy gravely : "Opens one of those three drawers, Valentine, and be: sure that you choose the right one. Each drawer contains an answer to the prayer which you have ad dressed to me- for the past six months. If you open that which contains the answer Yes, I will be yours-and will marry you as soon as you please.- But take care that you do not get the wrong answer, for if you do you will never .see me again." - "Alas" said Valentine, there are two chances to-one against me. How cruel you are, my darling !" "Well," said the Countess, "if I marry you -I can at least lay the blame on Fate." The young man hesitated a long time. His hand wandered. from drawer to drawer, not venturing to touch any, and his heart sank with the -fear of choosing wrongly. At last he s...
ALEXANDRA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
ALEXANDRA THEATRE. Dadi Birryj plods along manfully with his capital company at the Alexandra, and draws large audiences. En Arzssant Dan related to me the other day- a piece of theatre filling strategy that consiJerably opened- my oculars. And he further spread my. auriculars round the occiput when he told -of the brass-bound im pudeuce of. the applying deadhead, as a result of the unwise tactics of another place.

THE ALHAMBRA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
THE ALHAMIIRA. I think a man is an enemy to his own peace :of mind who does not visit the AlJhambra, where Harry Rlckards has drawn great houses for the week. Un fartunately the Rickard?s engagement is only for seven nights,- which is a regret table brevity. Harry is the same old electric spark, and galvanizes the human frame nightly with his budget of jollity. Then there is the redoubtable Frank Clark, WilL - Whitburn, Eddie Simpson, W. H. Speed, Muriel liarbrow, the clever Barteles, the Alhambra Ballerinas, etc., who make a big artistic unity. If Frank will only prevail upon Harry Rickards to stay over for- another week or two, he would confer a boon- upon this boom bursterd city.
BIJOU THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
BIJOU .THETRE. The Amateur Opera-:Co. gave a par formance of " The Gondoliers" last Satur dy night. For an amateur perforn cce it sva-s commendable. The ladies took the cike fur sang-froid, and without' ihat quality little good acting can be expected ; they also' looked highly engaging, being well-built; and gracefni in style. The aentlemien wvoula do well to take some lessoins in elocution, some voices being indistinct, while others were used ex cloiively in one register and consequendy became mnonotonous. The was the best all-round, acted character, th:s gentleman being free from nervotsnes, accented the proper words and did not hurry over his sentences and also modulated his voice in a cool and effectual mannier. With os re tutoring the company will in time be excellent.
