THE OAKLANDS HUNT CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 27 May 1893

THE OAKLXNDS HUNT CLUB. It must have been most gratifying to Mr McDougalh, Master of the Oaklands Hunt Club, to be greeted by so large an assemblage of well-mounted and highly equipped ladies and gentlemen as gathered at that most popular trysting place, the Essendon cross-roads, on Saturday last. Allowing a few minutes for late arrivals, the master gave the word, and led the way along Wood lands-street until reaching an opening in Mr Napier's plantati,,ns, where the hounds were thrown in, and hitting off the scent immediately they went away with a loud burst of music. Heading in a northerly direction they crossed Messrs Kerman's, Peck's, Stevenson's, and XWilliamson's pro perties in their course. On arrival at the Tullamarine Junction the doubles of the Bulla-lane into Mr D. Williamson's paddock were taken, and a check was ordered. The hounds were again laid on, headed towards the Keilor Chapel, and thn turned to the right and went into Mr H. Delaney's, across into Mr Taylor's, ove...

THE DIVINING ROD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 27 May 1893

THE DIVINING ROD. (Br AQUtA PURA, DIGGaoR'S REST.) No doubt your readers have noticed in the metropolitan papers that a lady from Avoca, the wife of a squatter staying on a visit at Mr Brownbill's on Simpson's Creek, has caused a sensa tion in the district by her successful use of a " divining rod" in discovering spots where water exists in springs or drifts. Now. having had some practical ex perience with the above, and been a keen observer of its actions in the hands of others on several occasions, has fully convinced the writer of this article that the belief expressed by many that it has the power of signifying the existence of underground springs and currents is erroneous, and quite unbefitting the enlightenment of the nineteenth century. Is it not patent to every right thinking person that by sinking to a sufficient depth water will be obtained almost any where, though great depths will have to be attained in places outside the stratified area. Now the worthy exponents of the ...

WHAT'S IN A NAME. AN AMUSING DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 27 May 1893

WHAT'S IN A NAME. -- e-f- AN AMUSING DEBATE. Three hundred members of the County Mayo Men Association and representa- tives of other Irish societies held a mass meeting at New York on the 11th ult. to protest against the giving of Irish names to the antinals in the cages at Central Park. Joseph Healey, presi dent of the County Mayo Men, was in the chair. Thomas Tooney said " The two new monkeys are called ' Pat' and 'Bridget O'Brien.' The swans and gazelles receive such names as ' Princess Maud' and 'Reginald.' I consider such dis- crimination an outrage and a degradation." Daniel Shea then made a few remarks. He said "They have named the goggle eyed, thick-skinned baby hippopotamus 'Miss Murphy.' " (Cries of shame, shame.) Mr Maloney said '" They have insulted us by naming that dirty chimpanzee ' Crowley,' and the chimpanzee's dirty female companion ' Mrs Crowley.' It should be put a step to." Patrick Sweeney remarked " The next baboon should be called ' Balfour,' and the next baby...

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 27 May 1893

NEWS AND NOTES. Mr Meyer, of Lancefield. who proposes running a goods van regularly between Melbourne and Lancefield, commenced his -first trip on Thursday, '.with--a-fine roomy waggon drawn by three horses. The trial of potato digging machines, arranged by the`West Bourke Agri cultural Society, possed off last Satur day on Mr Sydney Seymour's farm, close to Romsey. The attendance was not so large as expected, which was no doubt due to the extreme coldness of the weather. Only two competed, viz.:- The Lee and The Wallace. The crop in which the trial took place was rather a light one, and the soil was not in a very lively condition. For some reason the Lee machine did not do such good work as it is reported to have done at Newlyn last week. A number of potatoes were missed, while others were dug and covered again. These defects, however, Mr Lee stated could very easily be remedied, and he promises more faithful work next time it is shown. The Wallace machine left no potatoes undug, b...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our corre- I pondeuts.-Ed]. ROYAL VICTuf LAN INSTI TUTE FOR THE BLIND. (rT THE EDITOR OF THE SUNBURY NEWS.) Stn,-Relying on your kind assist ance, we beg through the medium of your columns to make an appeal to the public on behalf of the Royal Victorian Institute for the blind, the funds of which are now at so low an ebb as to render it absolutely impossible for the Board of Management to continue the workof the Institution auless substantial help is forthcoming. For years past its income has been inadequate, and owing to the prevailing depression its indebtedness has increased to between £5,000 and £6,000. Vigorous efforts have been made during the past few moiths, including the giving of a number of concerts in Tasmania, for the purpose of relieving its more pressing difficulties ; but the funds so raised are unfortunately not available, owing to the suspension of the Institution's Bank.

SOCIAL EVENING AT TOOLERN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 27 May 1893

SOCIAL EVENING AT TOOLERN. On Tuesday evening a social, for the purpose of bidding adieu to Mr Clarkson, formerly Wesleyan Minister for Sunbury and district, aivl welcoming his successor, Mr Trebilcock, was held at the Mechanics' Institute, Toolern. The pretty little building was handsomely decorated with. chrysanthemums, corres nonding flowers, green leaves, etc., giving the whole a most harmonious effect. In fact, the design could be beneficially copied by many who under take the decorating of amusement halls, while the chrysanthemums equalled any on. exhibition at the various Horticultural shows recently held. Mr Brown. of Green Hills, occupied the chair, and in a few appro pr;ate introductory remarks, declared the procerdings as commenced.

When Whitelck, Cromwell's amhbassa dor, was on his way to Sweden, in 1653, he was greatly try ubled in mind as he thought of 'te distracted stat, of the nation, so much so that. when he stopped over night at Warwick he could not rest, but walked the room in his agit?t: i for into the mid night hours. His confi ientiia servent, who had a couch in his room, finding !hat his master could not sleep, at length said, " Pray, sir, will you give me leave to ask you a question?" " Certainly," was the reply. -- Well, sir, don't you think that God governed the world vry well before you ever camine into it ?" " Certainly," was again the answer. " And pray, sir, don't you think he will still govern it quite as well long after you have gone oat of it ?" " Certainly," was again the reply.

GOOD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

GOOD WORK. Bigotry sometimes receives the reproof it deserves. When musical instruments were first used in the services of the Scot tish churches many strict Sabbatarians object d to the iniquitous proceeding=. One of these perso:ls on meeting the minister some tiwe after leaving " the kirk," because of the introduction of a hanroniuw, said with a sneer, " Well, and how is your fanner getting o0 P' (a fanner being at winnow ing macaine, resembhn^ the bellows of an organ in its working). " Oh, splendidly," answered the reverend gentleman ; "it.'s just keeping the good coin and blowing the chaff away."
