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

BLUNDERS. All the world blunders, misunderstands things, takes them up by the wrong handle, trusts its memory, is misled by similarities of sound, by popular etymolo gies, by a dislike to verifying its. refer ences. Mr Wheatley .has collected a number of human errors in "Literary Blunders" (Stock), . an amusing little work to which more research might add a companion volume. - Indeed a tiny appendix of Mr Wheatley's own blunders, or those of his printers, might be made. But as we are never so likely to flounder ourselves as when we are setting others right we leave Mr Wheatley to search for the tares in his own wheat. Anoie-book ,,f blunders w.,uld be amusing to keep. Even Mr Wheatley's book appeared a literary critic, wishing to show that sonnets in octosyllables verse exist in English, adduced as proof a sonnet in verses of six syllables. This is like the other critics who called "Thomasina " a monosyllabic title of a novel. Every one who writes or prints must know his own liabili...

The Sunbury News. Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY. JUNE 3, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY,- SATURDAY. JUNE 3, 1893. Oxa of the strange features in the case of the Mercantile Bank is the sudden disappearance of Sir Matthew 'Davies, ivholeft for Colombo on Satur day afternoon without giving even his friends notice of his action. We are assured that he was at the time suffer ing from nervous tension, and we can quite, believe it, but if he hid been made of the metal which perfers death before dishonour he would have stayed a few days longer and awaited the result of the application for the appointment of a grand jury. Being innocent, as he says, he could have nothing to fear, and patriotism alone should have induced him to see hinscelf, antl thro'igh himself, his country righted from a- foul slur. But h's action in running away two days before the application for the ap pointment of a grant jury will be construed to mean that he' f:ared the result and the colony will suffer by his departure. Sir Ma.tthew will also suff r by his conduct, but nob...

THE HEAT OF THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

THE HEAT OF THE MOON. The moon has no heat screens around it of any kind. It has no investment of either vapor or air. It consequently throws off the hcht from its surface with creat rapid~ity as sbon as this is turned away frc.m the direct influence of the rays of theo un. It has been calculated that the lunar surface is raised by sunshine to a temperature of something like 570 o Fahr., soon after the period of full moon, and that it is depressed by the influence of radiation into space to some thing like 187 0 btlow zero, ar 219 o below fr;st, soon after new 'moon. The heat which is thus radiated from the hemisphere of the. full moon is quite intense enough to make its way across the chasm of space which in tervenes between it and the earth but it takes effect only in causir g the absorption and dissipation of mists and cloude in t` e higher regions of the air. 'No lonar heat reaches the earth.. It is a curious circum stance .that the heat radiated from the fall moon thus in reali...

DIGGER'S REST. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

DIGGER'S REST. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Wednesday. After a protracted spell of fine weather, splendid rains set in last Satur day afternoon, and continued without cessation until 9 a.m. Sunday morning, intermittent showers falling during the rest of the day. On Monday morning a fog of great density . ung over the landscape, which was followed by a coni plete downpour, converting the low-lying lands into miniature lakes, and water courses into surging torrents. To night (Wednesday) it is raining heavily while I write, with every appearance of continuing throughout the night. It will prove very beneficial to the young grass and newly-sown crops. Several waggons pass through here daily, laden with merchandise en roitle for northern towns, which will make itself severely felt upon the roads during the winter mdnths. *An escapee from the S:lnbury Lunatic >Asyluin was observed: by some of our resi.lents last M )ndav ti?riingTben;ling. his steps in hot haste id the direction of Mel...

MELTON. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Wednesday. The ordinary monthly meeting of the Melton Shire Council should have been held at Toolern last Friday, but owing to the resignation of Councillor Shebler (a returning officer had to be appointed) and the suspension of the National Bank, where the shire money is, a a speeial meeting h4ad t:o be held a week sooner. There being very little business to transact, the- next ordinary meeting will not be held until Friday, 30th inst., at Melton. We have -had nice rain for the past few days, 3,43 points being registered for the month, From the 27th to 31st (to-day) 2.46 points fell.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

VHE LADIES' COLUMN. Morning Dresses for Busy Women.-The finest compliment I have ever heard paid to a woman was by her husband, and he said in speaking of her: " We always think of her as a morning glory, because she looks so bright and cheery and pretty at the breakfast table." About how many women can this be said? How many breakfast tables are presided over by women. who, it is possible, may have troubled themselves to be cleanly, yet make no effort to be dainty, and there are a great number who are at once untidy and even uncleanly to look at. The claim that household duties keep women from looking well in the morning is easily disproved for in many a househol t where the lady gives a helping band in the kitchen, a iig spron will thoroughly protect her dress, and then, too, cooking,unless one rmakesit so. is never dirty work. That woman comn mite an error who looks uncared for and badly dressed in the morning. The other woman, who wears any old thing to the breakfast table, is a...

'Done I" said Hood, and scarcely was the word uttered when they espied a signboard, the owner of which, wishing to advertise that he sold beer, had unluckily worded the announcement, " Bear sold here." " Ob," said Hook, ' I suppose that bear is his own Bruin I" " Well done l" cried .Charles Mathews. "Yoh'll have hardwork to beat that, friend Thomas."

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

NEWS AND NOTES. A correspondent sends us the follow ing:-On Friday evening, 26th ult., a number of ladies and gentlemen from Sunbury and the district surrounding, journeyed on an excursion of pleasure to a sweet spot previously agreed upon, and after a drive of an hour or two arrived at the hospitable home of Mr and Mrs C rinnion, Crows Hill. Needless to say the happy group was a surprise party. Of course all was expectancy for a night's thorough amusement amongst the way farers and of surprise on the part of the hospitable host. Yet, unexpected as the visit was, Mr and Mrs Crinnion rose to the occasion. A large improvised room was immediately set apart and tastefully decorated, while evergreens and lamps were most artistically placed, giving to the eyes of the guests a most unique and even grand appearance. In addition to the hall put aside for dancing purposes, a drawing-room, exceedingly well fur nished, was placed at the disposal of the company, in which some sweet music was dis...

The besieged were quite willing to capitulate on c ulition that they were not to be hangd, awln as everything is fair in war, a document was drawn up and duly signed to that effect That done they came forth, laid down their arms, and Fogarty seems to have been in particularly high feather, for puttin, on a jaunty air he remarked, " Now that it's all over let's have a snoko." Like many more who allect indifference, when it came to the pinch his fortitude deserted him and he had to be carried to the gallows, at least so said Martin Batey, a mana who could never see his road clear to hide the truth even to oblige his best friend. To adopt a modern expression, neither Jeffs nor Fogarty knew their way about, or else they would not have been bamboozled into a belief that a worthless scrap of paper would keep their necks out of the halter.
