UTNSUCESSFUL. A story, said never' to ~have been 'printed, is of a certain Brooklyn woman who finds a peculiar significance now in the woids of the psalmist, ' Pride goeth before destruction andlhaigh; ypirit before a fall." Her hus band is a man of prejudices, and one of thema is against wearing an overcoat: that costsr' more than $15. This notion porely tried his wife's aristocratic ideas, andr when expostu-. lation ''an'd entreaty availed :t niting she resorted: to strategy.: Collusion with: his tailor, on the occasion of his recent need ef an outdoor garment, :permitted his purchase of a $6'coat for his usual price, $15.

TAKINZ BUSINESS. A Detroit business man has a daughter and also a confidential clerk, and the confidential clerk has for some time been attentive to the daughter, but he has not-or,had not, a month ago-sufficient courage to come to tfi point, though the young woman, g60diel. knows, has'never done anything to scare himi` off, for he is a first-class fellow in every respect. The other evening he was making a call, and about 9 o'clock her father came in, " Ah, George," he said, "how about that deal we were talking about this afternoon? Did you see the party ?" "Yes, sir," replied George, " and I ex pected to see you this evening and tell you about it." "' My dear," said the father, turning to his daughter, "will you retire a few minutes? George wants to talk business for awhile.'". The daughter rose to ge, but hesitated. "Why do I have, to go?" she asked doubtfully. " Because, dear," smiled the father, "you are not interested. Why do you want to stay 7" She blushed and started out. "Be...

COLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893

COLDS, A cold or cough should never be neglected, especially in the case of children. No matter how mild or free from danger it appears to be, measures should immediately be taken to remove the inflammation which always accompanies a cold, in a greater or lesser degree, and the consequent irritation which causes the cough. If the cold be not attended to in time it will cause a thicken ing of the mucous membrane which lines the air passage, and when this occurs the person so troubled will be subject to an attack of. cold on the slightest change of weather, or on exposure to draughts or damp, and will be obliged to be very careful' to avoid the more dangerous form of cold, such as congestion of the lungs, or bron chitis, the membranes being reduced by con stant irritation to that susceptible condition which leaves them liable to serious develop ments on the slightest further provocation. In order to prevent colds in the little ones as far as possible, it is well to clothe them• in woo...

The Sunbury News. Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY. JUNE 17, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893

Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY. JUNE 17, 1893. WE heartily endorse the opinion ex pressed by Mr Burgoyne that there should be central wini-muaking establish ments in Victoria, which would dis pense with quite a host of difficulties. At the present time the small grower makes his wine without the proper appliances, hence it is not always of the best quality. Besides, the cultivation of the vine and the wine-making are what may be termed two separate in dustries, both of which desire very care ful attention. Under the system above mentioned, the small grower would be able to sell the grapes to a central establishment, just as the farmer sells his milk to the butter factory. The market would be found for him at his doors, and he would not be compelled to seek an outlet for ill-matured wines that can never command anyvery satisfactory price, The Argus wisely remarks, if this was done, " the great number of non-descript wines, as they are called, which appear in the Australian m...

(TO THE EDITOR OF THE SUNBURY NEWS.) [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893

(TO TaH EDITORt OF' TIlE SUanUR; NE S.) Sir,-The movement for securing the services of "Melbourne's Greatest Ama teur" for the purpose of augmenting the funds of our Junior Football Club was a commendable one, and that it failed to have the desired effect can not be attributed to want of patronage on the part of tile peop!eof Sunbury, but rather to members of the Tivoli Company, whose movements, in connection with the entertain:nlet,carry with them more than an ordinary amount of suspicion, and to the way in which Mr A. B Iard man allowed himself to be duped by MXr Richardson, Secretary of the Com pany. Of the merits of the performance it is not necessary to speak. But if viewed in the light of subseqluent actions there remains nothing but cnd emnation. Heretofore the members of the company have enjoyed, deservedly no donubt, a fair share of fame. and it is impossible to refrain from the expression of a regret that their talents could not raise them up to a loftier and more generous...

THE MIRAGE OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893

THE M1IRAGE OF LIFE. Behold, not many Ieagues before me rise, With glittering spires that touch the azure skies. The gates of some adrial 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 palace.- :nd streams, its shrines and lakes and flowers. I have been sleeping on the desert sand, Blind, within sight of this delicious land; Athirst and fainting; far too '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 my limbs, and 'raised my drooping head, To see from whence it came, and-oh, delight-instead Of scorching glare and empty sand, green lawns, Whose terraced slopes lull many a grove adorns; While 'neath their cool enwoven shade alway A thousand tinkling founts in lustrous grottos play ! Oh, bright those drops are, sparklin...

PROSPECTIVE PURCIHASES. A great many curious stories are told of the shopping propensities of ladies, and a Boston salesman in a carpet ware house has just added a good one to the number. One day a well-dressed lady called and asked to look at some carpets. With the usual politeness in such cases the goods were shown, every shade and pattern in the shop being spread out for examination. After looking at everything about the place, and driving some very close bar ains in the matter of price, the 1ad- selec:ed a carpet for each room in her house, run::ing up a bill which fiiled the courteous salcsmnan's heart with joy. Some hours had been spent in making out the important order : and when all was completed, the clerk asked where the carpets were to abe sent.
