A Chat with a Favorite Actor of the Thornton comedy Co. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
A Chat with a Favorite Actor of the Thor]ton Comedy Co. A representative from "Quiz and the Lantern" recently had an interesting chat with Mr. G. P. Carey, of the Thornton Comedy Company, regarding his experiences of late years. The re porter, who found 'Mr. Carey at the Grand Coffee Palace, Hendley Street, Adelaide, was struck with wonder at the marvellous change which had taken place in his personal appearance since his last visit to Adelaide in 1897 with the Brough Comedy Company. Then ho was seldom able to walk without the assistance of a stick, his face nearly always wore a pinched expression as though he was in severe pain, and in fact he had all the appearances of a man whose system, to use his own words, was " completely run down." Now however, the stick is discarded as a means of assistance no matter what distance he walks, and his smiling face and genial manner show that he is in the enjoyment of perfect health. How this result has been achieved is perhaps better stated in...

THE RIBBON OF THE SUNFLOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
TUi RKIBBON OF THE SUNFLOWER. Many of our readers (says the "Womene Suffrage Journal") have probably never heard of the "yellow ribbon," familiar though we all are with the blue ribbon and white' ribbon of temperance organisations. Nevertheless, the " yellow sunflower ribbon" seems rapidly becoming as marked an em blem of a supporter of women's suffrage in the United States as the blue ribbon is of a temperance advocate amongst ourselves. The idea emanated from Kansas, where the president of the Kansas Equal iights Associ ation first suggested it about three years ago, and was receired with enthusiasm by men and women, whether members of the association or not. In a few weeks the idea spread beyond Kansas, and was taken up by both the National and American Woman Suffrage Associations. Already it is beginning to attract to itself those associations of ideas which give force and significance to a badge. Thus a correspondent in Kansas writes: " Fancies have gathered round it, as that t...
SHE HAD A TEMPER. BUT SHE MANAGED TO CONCEAL IT WHILE BEING COURTED. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
SHE .HAD A TEM'PER. BoT SHE MANAGED TO CONCEAL IT WHEn BErio CousED. ,A certain young ms.rried lady is fortunate in having a good kinj husband, whose devo tion to her has never flnagged for an instant since the first day he fell in love with her several years ago. She, unfortunately for her own happiness as well as his, was born with a temper like gunpowder. The follow ing little family dialogue took place between them the other morning just after breakfast, during one of her lucid intervals. It leaked out, no matter how. "Tell me," said he, "just for my own curiosity, how it happened that I never dis covered this unhappy weakness in you in our courtship( dais, when I thought you a para gon of perfection. How did you ever manage to restrain yourself then ?" The poor woman hesitated a few moments before answering, and then sobbing bitterly, dropped her graceful little head upon his sturdy shoulder and said: " I used to excuse myself from you for a few minutes and g-g-go upstairs and ...
POCKETS OF OTHER DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
POCKETS OF OTHER DAYS. e What would men do in these days with. out pockets? A purse, a handkerhabef, a watch, a knife, a lead pencil, a memo' randuom book-there are only some of the things that a man must have always upon his person. As for the schoolboy, it would be idle to attempt a catalogue of his indispensables in this line. It is no wonder the tailor caters.to so universal -a taste, and doubt. less it is true, as some one has said, that the number of these conveniont receptaclee in the olofhing of a modern man would have been the surprise and wonder of the people of antiquity. The ancient Hebrews carried a poneh, and the Rooman-matron a handbag, which was, perhaps, the origin of the modern handbag and reticule. This was at first made of netting, but later of leather. * The Roman toga wfe bound in a knot under the left breast, and a protuberance was there formed, divided into many folds, * called a sinus, which answered the purpose of a posllet. The Roman matrons con oealed val...

The Guardian. PUBLISHED SATURDAY MORNINGS. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1898. A Look Ahead! [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
PUBLISHED SATURDAY MORNINGS. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1898. A Look Ahead I FROM the reports to hand, as well as those which appear in the Melbourne papers, almost daily, Victoria is ex periencing a great mining revival, which:is more pronounced at the present time because of the fact that apart from new country being opened up, investors have recovered, in a great measure, from the depression mania, which made them watch and wait for years, and now that time has passed they are not slow to act. Western Australia, by reason of its fabulous finds, was rushed into prominence as an"Eldorado which only needed a pair of hands, with a pick and shovel, to unearth its precious ore, and, In some instances, this prediction was verified; but, for the greater part, the Western colony has failed to keep up its reputa tion as a gold producing country, and the result is-what The loss of the " bone and muscle" of some of Vic toria's ablest sons at that time was a matter of so much concern that it was...
WOMAN WITHOUT HOME DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
YWOMiAN WITHOUT HOME. ? - DUTIES. A woman who has no home-duties, or who does not attend to such duties, is a pest to her acquaintances. It may take er a long time to make her breakfast toilet, but her outside garments go on like magic when she has once decided to make a morning or afternoon call. She will net work, and she will not let her neighbours work. Her acquaintances are kept in a state of chronic discomfort in the expectation of a visit, and a door boll in her 'viciiity cannot ring without striking terror to the heart of the lady of the house. A call from this idle person means simply losspof time without the slightest codmpensation. The work in the kitchen or the nursery must be aban doned; and this means, with practical conscientious housekeepers, not only a giving up of the work for the time, but some time yet to come. The work planned for that day and omitted for that day means overwork at another time, confusion, and anxiety.
GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
GcNERAL NE WS. SO:?E of our readers will, doubtless, be interested to learn that Mr. T. W. Story (whose application for an in creased water service to enable him to work a motor engine for chaff-cutting purposes, evoked so much discussion at the last meeting of the Waterworks Trust) has decided, in view of the complications:that mightfarise through this mode of work, to abandon the proposal, and use a more adaptable en gine for his requirements. Mr. Story intends now to use an oil engine, which will, in every respect, answer his purpose admirably, and will be far less expensive than the first idea. The manager is now calling tenders for the erection of additional works to his building, and the premises when finished will be fitted up with all the latest appliances necessary for the suc-. cessful working of a chuff-cutting plant. The firm have opened a branch at Yarra Glen, and Mr. L. Willing, who is well'and favorably knowni here, is managing the business. THE. atmosphericalij eleme...

THE MIRAGE OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 10 September 1898
THE MIRAGE OF LIFE. Behold, not many leagues before me rise, With glittering spires that touch the azure skies, The gates of some aerial city, fair As heaven-born genii build upon the sunset air! Like a bright dream within the heart of sleep It rests upon yon mossy hills, that keep Guard o'er its rich domes and vermilion towers, Its palaces and streams, its shrines andlakeg and flowers. I have been sleeping on the desert sand, SElind, within sight of. his dedicious land; -AChirst-andffaint/ng;-far boo sad to care, That, like a hungry wolf, Death watched me from his lair. But, just a moment since, sweet music stole, An 'angel unawares,' upon my soul, Strengthened r-.y limb;, and raised my drooping head, To see from whence it came, and-oh, dcei.:ht-instead Of scorching glare and empty sand, green 1.e'ans, Who-? terraced slopes full many a grove adorns ; .. While 'neath their cool enwoven shadeoalway A thousand tinkling founts in lustrous grotits play ! Oh, bright those drops are, spar...
