LOVE TRIUMPHS OVER ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 3 June 1893

LOVE TRIUMPHS OVER ALL. By ALICE DALE. " I won't hear any more about Roy Trevor ! the idle good-for-nothing, let ting the weeds choke his corn and his hay spoil in the lot, while he wastes his time in the house with a vagrant nobody knows ! He'll be a pauper yet, and die in the poor-house. You shan't marry him, and that settles it," Farmer La vayne declared testily. " I think it was a noble thing Roy did, father," said little Polly, speaking bravely in defence of her young lover " He found the man sick and helpless by the wayside, and it was only human of him to take the poor fellow to his house." " I know all about it ; and i know that, if he had a bit of common sense, he wouldn't have lost four or five hun dred dollars' worth of hay and corn, nursing a stranger, who's maybe no better than a gaol bird," Farmer La vayne interrupted with asperity. " There was nobody else to nurse him. The poor man would have died only for Roy's care. And the corn' isn't really hurt after all ; and= t...

DOMESTIC ECONO:MY. Domestic economy can become:domestic meanness withouti a very hard struggle. The barrier "`etiveen meritorious saving nnd scriniping is so slight, thatýmany a tlhriftjr liOu~at all' does notknowo the dfferehee.

A NAKRROW ESC:; PE FROM.I DROWNING. AN EXPERIE:NCE DURING THE RECENT FLOODS IN A W1HIRLPOOL. A miraculous escape from drowning occurred to a young man named. Mr E. Whelan, of. Bulla while attempting to cross Jackson's Creek at a place well known as O'Brien's Ford, on Friday, 2nd inst, which was then heavily swollen by the excessive rains. He was warned not to cross, but took no heed of the advice and determined to risk it. With regard to the particular ford in question it may     be as well to state that it is situated on the road between Bulla and Digger's Rest; and is, without exception, the   most dangerous crossing in the whole district, being compiled chiefly of loss   and huge rocks washed down by the flood waters. At the foot-crossing, close by, there is a wire rope for assistance when the w.ýter iis npl T-hies rope is erectcd four orv"fl?ee a1ooe. the bride., and was -codvreel at the time, completely, which woqutld make the...
