IN MEMORY OF EDWIN WILTON BICE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 15 June 1878
ýE i)n uWILSON DCE. 'He gently knocked at manbood's doO4 ad answer came, He knocked at Heavens pte, sad God forthwith enrolled him citisen. Ethereal blue fills the vast vault above. Decked with a thousand flames of living light. Whose lustre dims as the great orb of day: In all his strength, dispels the gloom of night; Now hid from mortal sight they still shine: on; With glory shedding light on other worlds In silence shining as they roll along, Launched into space, each in its orbit. whirls. To us the dead are also hid from sight. Our vision far too weak to follow them, Nor are they lost but ever dwell in light. Before the Great eternal throne they shine, In heaven's bright firmament they have a place, Cloudless their sky of glory, all divine, Effulgence ineffable fills all the aps . .,. , -W. J7C.

FITZROY SCHOOL OF DESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 15 June 1878
FITZROY SCHOOL OF DESIGN. The annual exhibition of the Fitzroy School of Design., which is usually held about this season, will probably take place early next month. The classes of the school, which now number one hundred and sixty scholars, are held in the Town Hall, and a visit there on Thursday night will amply repay those who take an interest in this and kindred institutions. When originally formed, some nine or ten years ago, the school was confined to youths alone, but a general opinion soon prevailed that its sphere of usefnlness might be extended by forming a separate class for girls, and a few years since the experiment was tried with a result that fully realised expecta tions, there being now an attendance of nearly equal proportions of both sexes. Both classes are held in the large hall the boys in the body of the room, and the girls on the platform, a temporary screen being thrown between. The school is well supplied with copies in the several depart ments, the want of w...
PRINTERS" "PIE." [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 15 June 1878
PRINTERS' "PIE." A deliciitus"piece of" pie" (says the Sunday TiMies) was nearly being served up to the readers ebf a Liverpool paper the other day. The previous evening its reporter had to attend a meeting at a Wesleyan chapel -for the conversion of the°Hebrews io Christianity, after which he reported the address given by, .General -H. Y. D. Scott to the Polytechnic Society on the conversion of sewage into lime and cement. In the printer's hands the folios got mixed up, and the ireport read :-" The Chair man, after the meeting had been opened with prayeir; eiplained that the con version, of the Jews was one .of the greatest works.that could engage the attention of our sanitary authorities. Filtration was the most perfect method that- could be adopted for purification, but a filter had its limits. There was a popular notion that the sewage con tained a vast amount of wealth, but the sludge must be taken out of it for pur poses of irrigation, as it otherwise choked the pores of the l...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 12/6/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 15 June 1878
NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY CosSopoLrrxE. Fitzroy, 12 I 6.178. While the residents; of 'Prestoh and surrounding districts aie agitating for railway to that por~ti6n.of the c. .ny, 'Mr. Arnold, of Fitzroy, is'taking steps to afford a reasonable' and easy' means of communication with' the nietropolis, having started to. run a line of busses to Preston Via Northcote, from H. B. Railway, at intervals during the day. This is taking time by the forelock, and as Mr. Arnold depends, entirely. upon the appreciation of the public for the success of his venture, instead of demanding a subsidy prior to thei starting of his line, he is deserving of their support. Last Tuesday a man residing in Johnston-street, Collingwood, was fined: £5 for selling apples and ginger-beer on Sunday. 'after having been cautioned by Mr. Seijeant Fenton that he was infringing the law. I cannot say that fault is to be found with the bench for inflicting this heavy penalty; for it appears they had no otheri alternative, an...

THURSDAY HALF-HOLIDAY ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 15 June 1878
THURSDAY HALF-HOLIDAY ASSOCIATION. The inaugural concert in connection with the above association was held on Thursday evening last, in the lPitzroy Town Hall, and despite the inclemeocy of the weather there was a good attendance. No effort had been spared to make the affair a suc cess, as evidenced by the erection of a pro scenium, and its necessary adjuncts. Owing to the absence of some of the performers at the commencement of the cmncert, the pro gramme was departed from, consequently many were in a state of uncertainty as to the name of the artist, or the piece being performed. Mr. W. Hart was the first to come forward, in the song Bonnie Scotland, I Adore Thee, and was well received. In the quartett What Beams so Bright, Messrs. Connar, Fitzgerald, Hailes, and Peacock appeared, and being unaccompanied, af forded an excellent opportunity of listening to a well-executed performnance, all the marks of expression being faithfully ad. hered to, so much so that in answer to the conti...
VULCAN'S VASSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 15 June 1878
i UCANS VASSALS. 'ALTHOUGH Vulcan takes firm hold of any district in which ,he plants his `standard,' yet he frequently changes his place of grasp. Several considerations, such as the exhaustion of. the fuel .that rives him breath,- the using up of the raw food on which he feeds, and the changing requirements of his patrons, force him to remove his hold now and again., And thus the seat of his king Idom has moved northwards--irregu larly" and slowly; and now the seat is in what was only a score or two years ago the unknown district of Cleveland. Out of that type of the good land of bld, "whose stones were iron," there has throughout that score of years been an increasing .quarrying .of ironstone; black :ind costly indices 'of 'prosperity, smelting furnaces, have b'en planted aliEgthe side of 'the nearest iver ;and the eff.ect on: the district and on other: trades~as.,bee. incalculable.t The, coal trade has willingly contributed fuel in vast proportions, and the lime quarries of Durh...
