IN AN OLD GERMAN TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894

If A3N OLD GiERMAN TOWN,. UT ISERE I5E 8. 8ACQtOID. We sonsider the Germans to be a praes tieal and business-like people, but in mesny ,f their old cities the inhabitants seem to as content to live much as their fathers lived before them and to dwell in old fashiened pieturesque houses, unteuched by the restorer. In many old English towns sonvenisun and sanitary considerations nave removed all traces of picturesque seauty from old houses, and the interest of nimne-honoured associations has been knocked out of them by the modern archi teet or builder. Even in York and Chester perhsaps the leasot medernised among onsW towns) remnants of antiquity have become scarce, with the exception of the walls, the gates, or " bars," the "rowns," and the churches. The quaint old houses have nearly all disappeared, and, as a rulin, ugly modern buildings have taken their places. As time goes on the same changes will probably take place in Germany: inNuram berg, for instance, much of the- picturesque...

HOW SHAM JEWELLERY IS MANUFACTURED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 31 August 1894

HOW SHAM JEWELLERY IS MANUFACTU RED. There is, perhaps, no other trade or profession that gives greater facilities for common deception and fraud than the cheap jewellery trade. Gorgeous brooches and earrings, bought and sold as gold, often prove to be honest brass, or what is technically known as "compo";' jewellery-the cheapest of all articles. "Compo" jewellery is made of a va riety of metals that look well when finished bright. the brilliancy of which colour is claimed by some as a secret. A gaudy shawl brooch, retailed at a shil ling, probably cost the vendor sixpence, and was originally produced for a frac tion above a penny! Cheap earrings, pins, lockets, braceleta, rings, and other trinkets, sold by the noisy cheap jack, are made chiefly of this material, though to the eyes of his admiring audience they look equal to the Crown jewels at least. The commonness and cheapness of these articles is really astonishing. A few years ago, a little trinket, thie shape of a volume, with...

Alh, but I have though--leastwise, I buried five on 'ett in the churchyard, that I did and tree on 'em was bewsies !" On another occasion, the parson suggested to a much-married wolmnan, " Don't you mix up your husbands now and then, Mhs.

I will transport you to a country where you will find a bitter-sweet fruit growing, and, having eaten of it, every care will fall off. You will forget the nams you bear, the country of your birth, the love-lit eyes of your sweetheart, all, everyth;ng, save the delicious now, the eternal present of hnappi ness. You will then have found that mythological figure, the jewel in the lotus, and ohave experienced the pleasures of which the poet sings: " In the afternoon they came unto a lanod In which it seemed clways afternoon." Here is the famnous Icte-tree, a native of the Noeth of Africa, growisg on the Syrtes by the shitling sasds of the Mediterranean. It i.s known there as the '" food of the poor," and it was doubtless this food that Homer's !otophagi ate. In hisitorical times the lotus eaters were found on the Island of Jerba, in Tunis.

THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 7 September 1894

H- " TOUGHT. Among the many mynsteries, physical as metaphysical, that asorround cur everyday life few are so puaIing as the " power to think.L' " Thoughti" What is it? and whmere is it? These?o eand such ike qouetions ) almost unanswerable, for the simple reason that they require the use of thought to fathom thought; a mystery to fathom a mystery. Cold unimpassioned thought is very often unwittingly describel as reason; often inten. tionally so. Yet is not this incorrect? Bea son, as I understand the term, is when thoubht and feeling act in harmony: hlen the pure impulse or emotion of the heart tallies in every litti detail of its action with cald, unimpassi3ned thought. •-cha combination is all powerful, the absolute and ultimate guide of conduct, hence reason. Thought or impulse singly could never be considered an ultimate guide, though the harmony of the two form an absolute atan. dard-" reason." Having drawn this broad distinctlIon be tween thought and reason, we may go on t, c...

The Use and -Abuse of Alcohol. A LECTURE DELIVERED sT D& K. NI. O'DONNELL LEFORE THE NOTH MELBOUrNE EnRANCH OF TIIE AU5 TRALIAN NATIVES' ASSOCIATION. The use and abuse of alcohol is a nro blem fraught with intense interest to mankind. Probably of all the articles o diet man consumes, whether beverages or solids, alcohol is the one pregnant with p.otentialities, for it is the only one which, if taken in moderation, is bene ficial to him in many ways; while, if in dulged in to exces, it works unutterable physical and moral ruin to the individual and perhaps others dependent on him. Rlecognising, then, the gravity of the issues, involved in the subject of my lecture, I feel a certain amount of respon aibility in undertaking it. It will be my aim to de ?I with the question scientifically and temperately, pointing out, to the besat of my ability the dangers of excessive in dolgence, while at the same time doing full homage to the many hours of exhilar ation and eoc:ality a modera...
