FRENCH FUNERAL FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 14 September 1894
FRENCH FUNERAL FASHIONS. A msost painful custom at French funeruls is the posting at the exit door~of the church wherein the ceremony takes place, of the male head of the decewoed person's family, the widower, or she eldest son and brother, wyhose duty it is to shake hands with every person wshos rnas been present at the obee quies, soiree once they are over, and people are goirg away. It is not etiquette for the gentleman tio saesk to anybody, but if he is moved to tears his weeping is considered a most appropriate acLion. A very beautiful and impressive adjunct to an aristocratic officii Parisian funeral is the presence in the procession of the ceura of the deceased, the horse or horses led by rooms irs mourning livery, and the lanterras lihitled and veiled in long streamers of seori trarsparent crape. Tire effect is at once sombre and pictury' 1q00, and is especially striking at the obseqqies of some great personage, such as 31. Ttiers, Gumbetta, or Victor Hugo. Nobody, not even ...

REBUKED. It is much easier to start an evil report than to stop it. Even after a rumour tIns been proved false the harm it has done cannot always be undone. Before repent ing a biI of gossip it would be well to ask ourselves three questions. First, " is it true? " Second "is it kind?" Third " is it neceossry? " This pratica would be sure to sase us many bitter memories and regrets. The pious Phitlip of Neri was once visited by a lady who ancused herslf of slander He bade tier go to the market, buy a chicsen just killed and still, covered with feathers anmsd walb a certain distance, plucking tile bird as she went.

A WEE SUNBEAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 September 1894
A WEE SUNBEAM. Even in the life of a grimy ralroad engineer, whose existence is- one of al most constant'danger, there sometimes falls a spark of light, and a ray of human sunshine illuminates his smoky cab, penetrates his greasy blouse and finds its way deep down into his bres.st. A little incident happened down at the mole the other evening after the arrival of the overland train, which, thoug. of a simple nature. will long be remembered by a certain C. P. engineer. The great iron monster attached to the :rain was throbbing and puffing after the long and sinuous trip over mountain sides and rocky defiles, trembling trestles and marshy stretches. The din in the depot was deafening, but out of the chaos of sounds a sweet, girlish voice was heard welcoming home her parents, who had arrived on the train. She was a little, golden-haired beauty, scarcely six years of age, with a quick, intelligent eye and a loving nature, to which she gave full vent in the radiant and impulsi.'e way she...

AN EDITOR'S TROUBLES. Itotlong ago, nicking up an evening paper, I I read a short paragraph aboist the diflic'cl lies encountered by a humourist in using names for the various brain people whom ho writes about on aceosnt of the numbers of real flesh and blood people who will persist n. bolieving that they are meant, owing to an accidental similarity of nomenclature. It brought forcibly to my mind an experi ence of my own when I had just started on the highway of authorship. I had been asked to take temporary charge I of a small country paper-well, we will call it the "Turnoverandover Argus "---during the absence of a friend of mine, who was ra pidiy gaining favour as its editor. .

PATHOLOGY OF ALCOHOL OR ITS AFFECTS ON THE ORGANS AND TISSUES OF THE BODY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 September 1894
PATHOLOGY OF ALCOHOL' OR ITS A?FECTS ON THE ORGANS AND TISSUES OF THE BODY. A single indiscretion in the way of in toxication-lasting, say, for a day-can not be said to leave any permanent ill result on the system. Next day there may be some hsadache, thirst, and a poor appetite, indicating digestive disturbance, but these symptoms soon pass off ... ! But repeated over indulgence inflicts certain well understood damage on the organs. The nervous system and brain become diseased, as is indicated by tremor of tne limbs, shooting pains, specks before the eyes, dull headache, and loss of the intellectual and moral powers. The digestive organs, particularly the stomach, sustain injury. There is nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, foul tongue, and a peculiar and characteristic ftctor from the breath; the whites of the eyes become yellow, as a result of the poor appetite, the diminished power of digestion-the general nutrition of the body-sufers, and you often find, in spirit drinkers e...

SPIRITS. Spirits are produced by the distillation of fermented liquids, and have, as their base, the alcohol which is formed during the process of fermentation.
