THE UNDERTAKER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873

THE UNDERTAKER'S STORY. BY MRAnK TWAIN. " Now, that corpse," said the undertaker, patting the folded hands of deceased ap proviugly, "was a brick-every way you took hbm he was a brick. He was so real accommodating, and so modest-like and simple in his last moments. Friends wanted metallie burial case-nothing else would do. I couldn't get it. There warn't going to be time-anybody could see that. " Corpse said never mind, shake him up some kind of a box he could stretch out in comfortable, he warn't particular 'bout the general style of it. Said he went more on room than style, any way, in a last final container. "Friends wanted a silver door-plate on the coffin, signifying who he was and wher' he was from. Now oue know a fellow couldn't roust out such a gaily thing as that in a little country town like this. What did corpse any ? "Corpse said, whitewnash his old canoe and dob his address and general destina tion onto it with a blacking brush and a stencil plate, long with a verse fro...

HORSES TRAINED TO WORK MACHINERY WITHOUT A DRIVER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873

IHORSES TRAINED TO WORK MA CIIINERY WITHOUT A DRIVER. lMachinery driven by borse-power, is now extensively, and increasingly, em ployed both on our gold fields, for various mining purposes, and on large tracks of our back sheep-country for the purpose of raising water from, very often, great depths. Such being the case, any means that can be devised for cheapening the working of such appliances will be advan tngeous to the graz:er, and, of course, through him to the country at large. A considerable item in the cost of working horse powers would he saved if the ser vices of a man to drive the horse or horses could be dispensed with. In some parts of France it is common to acee horses, asses, and mules, thus used without the attendance of drivers. The mode of training them to the work is as follows :-Attach a smllt bell to the pole, shaft, or lever, to which the horse is har nessed for draught, in such a manner that it will be rung continuously while the horse continues his round, and...

Farming & Gardening. FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873

Farming. & Gardening. S- FARMING. A FARMER of my acquaintance (writes the correspondent of an American agricul. tural journal) took pains to have his cons comn in' in tie fall eand winter, for the reason that he could get'a better price for the butter then thab in the summer, and that during the hottest season of summer, when harvest work was urgent, and butter making, at the best, unsatisfactory, and the cows rendered fretful and feverish by flies and beat, then was the time to have them dry. This.may be all true, but can you, asked I, make as much butter in winter or as good as in summer P He re plied-I cannot only make as much but better butter in winter; and this is how I do it: My hay is cut at the first blossom ingland cured in the cock. Mly meadows are then top-dressed with manure, and by September the second crop is ready to pasture off with the cows, and give them a heavy, feed. My fodder corn is cut early and cured carefully, and is nearly as green as when cut. In ...

FOOTBALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873

FOOTUBALL NOTES. S 3Br ScnEsIc3.sori. The North Melbourne Club having re ceived a challenge to play the Kilmore Club on the first opportunity thatoccurred during the season, the former club decided to avail themselves of Separation Day, that being a holiday with a good many members. The committee having met on Monday night, a team was selected to pro. coed the next morning to Kilmore. Tues. day morning came, but the weather was most unfavourable, and was evidently the cause of only seventeen men turning up at the station. Hiowerver, we took our seats in the 7 a.m. train, bound for the North-East, and determined to trust to fortune for fine weather. The rain never ceased, however, till we arrived at Gavan "Dufl'y Town, when to our gratiflchtion the sun peeped out from the leaden coloured clouds. We then made our way to the township of IKilmore, along one of the worst roads it would be possible to find in the colony. Arrived there we ordered breakfast at the Royal Oak, and wlile it wa...

Tales and Sketches. A CRUISE IN SEARCH OF A SLAVER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 16 July 1873

Tales and Sketches. A CRUISE IN SEARCH OF A SLAVER. (Concluded.) Dunrno the remainder of the voyage along the southern shores of Arabia nothing un usual occurred to vary the monotony of life at sea. The coast here is uninterest ing to a degree; nothing but a long un broken desert line meets the eye, and seldom do even a few date trees relieve with their foliage the depressing sameness of desert, desert, everywhere. Now atnd then we overhauled some miserable Arab " buglahs" creeping along fromn one ob. scure port to another. The swarthy mariners who sman these craft are certainly not gifted with the adventurous spirit of a Columbus, but closely " hug" the shore in their short voyages, and fly into tihe nearest port on the approach of an ordinary gale. At length, in spite of contrary winds, and light baffling airs, and dead calms, we arrived in the vicinity of Cape Mussendum, the trysting-place. Scarcely had we reached the bluff headland than a sail was sighted. We were a good many da...

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 6TH AUGUST. BOARD OF ADVICE AND THE HOTHAM COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 6 August 1873

AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 6TII AUGUST. BOARD OF ADVICE AND THE HOTHAM COUNCIL. The action of the Council on Monday ecening, 28th ult,, in refusing to allow the Board of Advice the use of the Town lall was, to say the least of it, ill-advised. It must be recollected that the Town Hall is the property of the ratepayers, and that the ratepayers returned the members of the Board of Advice, therefore for this reason alone we contend that they were entitled to the Hall. The gentlemen composing the Board are not paid, nor will they receive any emolument, directly or indirectly, for the arduous duties they will be called upon to perform. Surely, then, under these circumstances, some consideration ought to have been shown to a body which has only the welfare of the community at heart, in seeking to administer tile Educa. tion Act in its integrity. We have no hesitation in saying that neither Council lors White, Carroll or Fogarty had any other objection to the request being granted th...

IUltET IN HIOTI0AM. At last there appears to be some lilceli hood that the people of North ,felbourne will be enabled to derive the advantages which the presence of a regular market usually conflers upon the district in which it exists. At the meeting of the Hotham Council on Monday evening, 2Sth ult,Coun cillor Fogarty moved and Councillor White seconded a motion, which was unani mously carried, affirming the necessity that exists for a public market in Hothanm. We trust that the whole question will be opened up at the next meeting, and such action taken as will result in the speedy establishment of a public market in that borough, It is much needed.
