THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
THE TRUTH. Little by little must we receive the truth. The moral progress of mankind and the advancement of each individual depend on this. No ide;l of perfection springs up ready formed in any mrin l, but glimpses of a better life come to us all. There are times when each one sees how he may purify his own heart and ele vate his own character, how he may fur ther the cause of justice and help his fel low-men. It is for him to discern these rifts in the clouds, to let not one pass away until he has made it his , rn, not in thought only, but also in life. Tthus alone will his conceptions of moral gooaness ex pand and his character improve. What is that which runs, but has no legs ? Water. - Why is A like twelve o'clock ? because it's the middle of day. " 11 join you presently," said the mini -, ter to the young couple, as hie went for t..e church key. Why aes Dickens a greater mlan thb.n Shakespeare? Because Shakespeare write well, but Dickens wrote Weller,

A TWENTY YEARS' KISSING ACCOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
_A TWENTY YEARS' KISSING ACCOUNT.. A Frenchman recently died who, it is stated, on his vwedding-day. some twenty years ago, took the original-perhaps it may be said rather imprudent-resol: tion to keep a yearly account of the number of kisses exchanged with his wife until their union became severed by the death of one or the other. He was destined to be the first to go ; but when, on his sick-bed, foreseeing that he would nut recover, he begged a friend to let the world know the result of his twenty years' account-keeping. During the first year of wedded life the kisses exchanged reached the colossal figure of thirty-six thousand five hundred, or one iihundred a day on an average : but in the followin;. twelve months there was a notable de crease. not more than sixteen thousand being inscribed on his register: while the third year sho::s a still greater falling off, the average number of kisses being about ten a day. And after, the lapse ' 1 five years a further reduction is recorde...

CHILDREN'S COLUMN. THE THREE PHILOSOPHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
CHILDREiN'S COLUMN.'. THE THREE PHILOSOPHERS.: Three wise philosophers went out one day for a drive together. No doubt they enjoyed it very much, for wise men who think a great deal about difficult questions like to talk over their i:eas among them selves. When these three friends came back there was no one ready to attend to their carriage, so they left off talking philosophy for a little while, and began to loosen the harness and take out the horse themselves. They get him out of the shafts and unfastened the straps- and buckles, but they were all three puzzled when they tried to, take off his collar. " It's toc small," remarked one, "how could it fossibly have been put on'" '"I'm sure I can't uncerstand," said the second, with his head on one side wondering what they should do next, while the third tried once mote to get the t:resome piece of harness off. But it stuck fast at the. horse's ears, and the poc r brute shook his head and stamped restlessly, much astonished, no doubt, ...
THE LITTLE LAMB. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
THE: LITTLE LAMB. A merry lambkin, white as snow, While in the pasture straying, Was jumping, springing to imd fro, In wanton antics playing. - Hop, hop, it went, o'er stock and stoiie, To every fear a stranger. " Stop," cried the mother, "careless one You're running into danger." The lambkin only hopped the more, Up hill and down so featly; But soon she found her frolic o'er, Her pleasure spoiled competely. Upon a hill :here lay a stone; The lamb was springing o er it, When lo; she fell and broke a bone, And long wil she deplore it. Remememer children, every one, . And wisdoal from it borrow,"-? That pleasure which is overdone, Will end inh pain and sorrow. -Our Little Doti:.

BUSINESS AND MOTHERHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894
BUSINESS AND MOTHIERHOOD. One of the objections which the friends ofadvancement for woman have had to meet most frequently has been the plea that such advancement as was demanded would unfit woman for wifehood and motherhood. At a meetingof Sorosis, the New York society which has special charge of woman's advancement in that vicinity, there was a deliberate discussion of the question : " Should a Woman's Business Training Take Into Consideration the Fact That She May Become a Wife and MotherC The majority seemed of the opinion that wifehood and motherhood were not incompatible with business training or engagement in business; but it was very emphatically urged by one of the debaters that the talk about mother haod was "twaddle," and that "the average mother's soul is about as big as a hickory minut." We do not see how a woman who has a soul of the size of a hickory nut can be on tldat account disqualified. There are men in business in Detroit this very day whose souls would be lost ...
"LOSING HIS NERVE." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894
"LOSING HIS NERVE.? In that first year of the war men were terribly unjust to men. He who lost his nerve as he stood in battle line was at once stigmatized as a coward, and in some instances the disgrace folrowed him until he yielded 'p his life on the field. We did not know the difference between cowardice and loss ofnerve. We had to learn that as we learned a hundred other things in war. Did you ever see a coward in the ranks? No, not onel A constitutional coward could not have been induced to enlist. If drafted into service he de serted, or his fears made him really ill and kept him at the rear. You saw men, and you saw them in your own company' who were stigmatized as cowards, but later on you apologized for your mistake and took them into companionship again. You came to realize that the bravest of men would break down under certain conditions, and that to be found "off," as the men termed it, was a mis fortune and not a disgrace. We are in line at Wiliamsburg, and our regiment...
A JOKE THAT WAS COINED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894
A JOKE THAT "VAS COINED. " Co-ng ': jokes is a very common dgure of speech, but we lknow of only one instance in which the joke was actualy coined-that is, struck upon a graven die and issued from a legal mint. The fact is histarical, and is as fallows :-In the yearlG37 the Danes adl vanced with a large force upon Hamburg. but after a siege of considerable duration, seeing but little hpe of ultimata success, they finally ,ithd-ew and marched back. Thereupon the Hamburgers caused a medal tobe struck in commemoration of the event. On one side of the numismatic curiosity was the inscription--'.The STing of Denmarz came before Hamburg. What he gained by it will be cesn on the other side." On 2s. other side there was a total blank; When itis not fashienable to be at hItarc, nor proper o go out calling, there is neth.r:: to do buato pulldown the blinds and h e

THE BABY SAVED THE3IL "Why, what have you got here, Tess .' "It's the tail board out of the dray, Tom. I've got to barricade Daisy in with some thing. Leave it there, Tom, the door will shut aswell with it down, and I am afraid this little puss willcrawl out and fall down a shaft before we wake in the morning." " What a very lively imagination you must have, Tess." " Ah, yes, you men don't know what it is to feel a mother's anxiety. Where would you have been now if your mother had not looked so well after you?" retorted his wife with a wise little air of conviction. "Perhaps I should not have been here at all, and some other fellow would have owned you, and this little terror "-putting his arm around her and giving her cheek a gentle pat. " Don't call her a little terror," said his wife, praparing with caution to reinstall the baby limbs in their proper place beneath the covering. "For goodness' sakle, let her alone," whis pered Tom; '" she may take it ;nto her head to get up." "Don...

THE OLD SETTLER. (Ed. Mott in New York Sun.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894
THE OLD SETTLER. (Ef. Molt in New York Sun.) The old eat lay asleep in the corner of the kitchen, out of everybody's way. Little Peleg, having in view a game of marbles for teeps with Bill Simmons, sat on the floor iractising with his china alley an various ibjects. At last it struck him that the closed tye of the old cat would be about the proper ized target for him to try his skill on, and ne shot his alley at it, at short iange. It was a good shot. The marble hit the cat's eye fair and square. The cat jumped three feet from the floor, and the yell she gave awoke the Old Settler from his doze in the rush-bottomed rocking chair. "Jeewhizz l" he exclaimncd. "Be we 'tacted by cattymounts ?" "P-o-o-o-r Kittie !" said Peleg, with a voice full of sympathy. "Did the fire snap out of the store and burn your head ? Grand pop, that'chestnut wood is terrible snappy." The Old Settler gazed at his grandson for a moment in doubt and uncertainty. "Peleg," he finally said, "me an' yer gran'mammny...

THE DEVIL OF ST. GILDAS [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894
THE DEVIL OF ST. GILDAS Peter Csbana and his "wlfe Bridget lived alone in an isolatedacottagu near the village of St. Gildas. They were cited for 10 leagues around as a model pair, and St, Gildas took part in the celebration of their goliten wed din;. Is was their hope to die together at the same hour, at the same minute;' but man proposes and God disposes. One day Peter fell sick, made his will, at tended to his concerns with God and man. and quietly passed away in the arms of his weeping wife. The whole commune attended the funeral, and at the end of the day, so mournfnl for her, Bridget returned home, .where jt was her lot to remain in commnnion with her grief. The thought of retiring to rest scearcely en tered her mind. Seated in .a large straw armchair st the foot of the bed, with head resting on her bosom and hands joined, she asked of God the favour of soon rejoining her husband. An r'usual noise attracted her attention. Perhaps some "gorgon, dydlra or chimera dire," escaped ...
