Certainly the Council had a representative at the con ference, when the bye-laws were framed, t but so little interest seems to have been attached to the proceedings, that ill considered regulations were drawn up, which press very unfairly upon the public ---especially where situated at sonme dis tance from established union centres. About July in last year, it may be re miembered, the Itispector visited Morwell, and the tradesmon had to pay-not only 1 the cost for adjustment, but a mileage rate, that was in every instanue reckoned from Trarlgon as a centre. This con stituted the hardship, as the mileage was based on a particularly high s...

Thanksgiving. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1887
ThauksgIwlng. Brown autumn's lavish hand bad spread On bush and brake her berries red, And from the burrs o'erhead, In which all summer they had lain, With pattering sound like drops of rain, Ripe chestnuts fell upon the plain. And barn and granery were stored With the ripe corn-the winter board; And plenty reigned at every board. And once again returned the day, When, casting toil and care away, A people lift their hands to pray. And bless the love and Sovereign will That did their homes with plenty fill. And keep their bounds unshakent still. On many a cottage hearth that night, Glenmed ruddily the faggot's light, And round it gathered faces bright. Without, were wind and storm and sleet, Within tile sound of dlancing feet. And bursts of laughter wild nmtl sweet. By the hearth of farmer Stone, iHe sat with his good wife alone, Save that the dog who now had grown, In faithful service old and gray, Curled up upon the hearth-rug lay, And dozed tlte erening hour away. The farmer spake...

Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1887
Evening. TnM sir is ehill and the day grows late, And the clouds come in through the Golder Gate. Phantom fleets they seem to me, From a shoreless and unsounded sea; Their shadowy spare and misty sails, I Unshttered, have weathered a thousand gales ; S!ew w1heling, to ! in squadrons gray, They part, and hasten along the bay. E oeh to its anchorage flading way. Where the hills of Saucelito swell, Many in gloom may shelter well, And others-behold ;-unchallenged pass By the silent guns of Alcatraz. Na greetings of thunder and flame exchange The armed isle and the cruisers strange; Their meteor flags, so widely flown," Were blazoned in a land unknown, And, charmed from war and wind and tide Along the quiet wave they glide. What benr these ships? What news, what freicht Do they bring ns through the Golden Gate? Sad echoes of words in egldnees spoken. And withered hopes for the poor heart. broken. Ah, many and many a venture we Have rashly sent to the shoreless sea l Ah, many an hour have...
(TO THE EDITOR MORWELL ADVERTISER.) [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1887
(TO TI?E EDITOnI MORWELL ADVERTISEP.) Stn,-Will you kindly allow me through the medium of your valuable paper to draw attention to the dangerous state of the bridge over Middle Creek near my selection. It is thorouglly dangerous to travel over it, yet the public are forced to make use of it. On Sunday: last I drove across with my wife and mother in a conveyance, and nar rowly escaped a severe accident in conse. quence of the flooring of the bridge being so much inclined, tlhat the conveyance' nearly slipped over the side. Mr Quig!oy's bullocks were crossing on another occasion, and one of them s ipped off the bridge, and I had to cut the yoke, and let it fall into the creek, which caused it to break ott one of its hbrns. One beam is completely rotted away. and the flooring is only hold together with nails. Surely, now, this matter has been made public, the council will see that a new bridge is built at once, or provide a ford for the public to cross the creek, as the present state o...
Washerwomen of Etretat. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1887
Washerwomen of Etretat. Orn of the cerious features of Etretat is the washerwomen. There is a sebrerransan stream here, whiobh, at high tide, tills all the aisterns with a sweet, fresh waterand leaves them dry at low tide. This river empties in to the sea at the barn of a high cliff to the south of the place. Woen it is low tide the washerwomen go down to this place with their clothes. With a wooden shovel they scoop out a hole by pushing aside the otones, and behold a well of fresh water, a natural washtub, always full of pure, fresh water. Nature has provided them a model wshb honue. They may be seen by the dozens washing away among the etones, for at a di. tance no water can be seen. In fact. one mi.y walk directly over the bed of " La Fontain," as the stream is called, and not know it, but push away the stones, and there you have the water fresh and pure. After the linen is washed it is spread out on the beach to dry, the comers being held down with stones to keep them from flyi...
O, Wae Be To The Orders. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1887
0, Wae Be To The Ordern. BT WILLIAM MOTIIERWELL. I know of only one song which surpases this, If it does surpass it, and that is Auld Robin Gray, which is less purely poetical in expression, but rather more in keeping throughout with the simple, homely char acter of the imaginary singer. To be able to touch the heart is not given to many poets, great or small. It was given in the eighteenth century to Lady Anne Lindsay, and in the nineteenth century to William Motherwell. s. H. STODDARD.] O, was be to the orders that marched my luove awa'; And was be to the crnel cause that gars my tears down fa', 0, wan be to the bluidy wars in Ilo Ger manic, For they have ta'en my luve, and left a bro ken heart to me.

Parlor Magic. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1887
Parlar I~!a c. A hat is borrowed; likewise a cigar. The performer breathes on the latter to mes merise it, and declares that when so mes merised he can compel it to stand upright on the crown of the hat. lie endeavors to make it stand up accordingly, at first without suc cess, but presently the cigar does actually stand upright, self-supported, on the crown. At command it will bow to the company, salute the ladies on the right the ladies on the left, and so oni. The performer then asks for a little music, anl begins to move the hat about, still crown upward, first in one hand then in the other. The cigar retains its vertical position, but sways about. ?ometimes to one side, sometimes to the other, as if endeavoring to I:eep time to the music. At any nmoment tie performer can request a spectator to take the cigar from the lhat and to satisfy himself that it is not attached in any way. Toe seeming mystery rests on the use of a very simple piece of apparatus-a little rod about the size...
