FOUND AND LOST. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 September 1894
FOUND AND LOST. lii an upper room of a miserable tenemeent I found my love. There, in the squalor of those namealess sbsr routidings, she lay, her wa'sted arms stretched out over the ragged coverlet,. her breath coming and going slowly, with a dreadful hollow murmur. And when I looked on the yellow, unrecog nizing eyes, rendered additionally ghast ly by the traces of make-up lingering on the lids; on the thin wisps of hair, gray in patches, and green and yellow where the cheap dyes had faded :on the shrun ken skin, whose copper-hue spots con veyed to my praticed eye an only too common significance; on the mouth, where could be read more plainly than anywhere else that story of degradation -when I looked on these things I closed my eyes and, my love appeared to me once again, clothed in all the glory of the past. She is mine-my wife-my love. She was stolen from me, but I loved her. He the enemy of my boyhood and of my manhood had taken her away from me and then flung her in the mire,...

THE HOUSE OF BARING0 S... (From tc. fifalto.) ' There are six Great Powers in Europe," seid th Duoe de Richelieu in 1818; "Eng Ia n, France, ETissia;nAustria, Prussia., and Baring Brothers." Threescore years and twelve passed, and of the Duo's Great Powers. the sixth and last was no longer worthy to be counted in the number. A sudden financial earthquake rent to the foundations the famous house in Bishopsgate Street, and it was saved from a terrible and disastrous collapse only by the Bank of England, the Joint Stock Banks, and the City generally, rushing forward to but tress it up. In view of this startling catas trophe, one turns witth a curious interest to the story of how the great firm, whose name has become a household word in Europe, was built up to the height from which it was cautiously lowered in order to avoid a head long fall. TOE sIRST BO G. The Barings had the start of the Roths childs in England, though not in Europe. It was not until about 1800 that the first llothsc...

DEFINITION OF WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 September 1894
DEFINITION OF WEALTH. In striving to reach a higher order of ife than we have yet attaine- to, the first thing needftl as that we should acquire a know ledge of what wealth really consists of. The net thing is that we should realise the part which the social affcation and honesty-the natural outcome o.f the social affection play in the economic'relations of men. A true definition of wealth ithe possesion of the valuable by the valiant. In other words, there is no wealth but life-life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admira tion. That country is the most wealthy which nourshes the greatest number of noble and happy human beings; etha. man ia the mo't wealthy who, having perfected the fncmtions of his own life so the utmost, has .*ILo the wido-t helptftt i.L.uence, both per sonally and by meas of his possessions, over the ves of others.-Henry flose.

What would they have thought and felt if they had witnessed asimilar breach of decorum on the part of the officiating minister himself, as described by an eminent Professor in one of the Scot tish Universities, who was an eye-witness of the scene? In the course ot a tour through the Highlands, of which he was a native, the Professor wooshipped one Sunday in a large Parish Church which use to be crowded be fore the Disruption, when both the minister and the people seceded from the Establish ment.

TIHNTS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE. If thefat in the frying ketvte is hot before you are ready for it, put in a dry crust of bread. It will not burn as long as it has £omething to do, only when it is left. idle. It is convenient to have an iron holder attached by a long string to the band of the apron when cooking; it saves burned fingers and scorched aprons, and is always at hand. - A spatula or palette knife is the best thing for scraping batter, porridge, etc., from the sides of bowls or pots; it is not expensive, and soon saves its cost by preventingwaste. iKeep a clasp knife or a knife with a handle different from those in common use for the sole purpose of peeling onions, and so avoid the flavour and odour of them where it is neither expected nor desired. To mend 5 very large hole in socbs or woven underwear, tack a piece of strong net over the aperture and darn over it. Thus ;mended the garment will be stronger than when new, and look farneater than if darned in the ordinary way. -To k...

MAxY farmers on Long Island, New York, find it diffi?nt to get a good stand ofhill corn, owing to the prevaltace of large field mice, which in through the bills and eat theseed before it comes up. One farmer in this section has found the old custom of coating the corn with pine tar an effectual remedy.

Care, shonldbe taken in applying the tar that too thick a coating be not put on, as it might prevent germinasio. An old iron kettle has been found useful. to stir the corn in while applying, the tar. This same remedy will prevent crows, black-. birdsj etc., from pulling the corn after it, has sprouted.

A BALD HEAD. Mrs. Fenwick Miller, a journalist and lecturer, was latela asked bya corresponi dent whether she really thought that women could, if they liked, do all that men can do. She replied as follows: "Speaking for myself, there is at least I one thing that maily men have done and now do, which I know I should never have the courage to -o. I have studied medicine, contested elections, written political leaders--all lhke a man; but though I have never yet in my life worn on my head a tress of hair which bad not grown there, I am sure I never, never should have the courage to go about with a bald head."

A MEMORABLE TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 21 September 1894
A MEMORABLE TRIAL. In April 5687 James II. published solely on his own authority, and there fore illegally-a Declaration of Indul gence, permitting all to worship in their own way. Though undoubtedly made for Romanists, it gave liberty of con cience also to Nonconformists or Dis senters. The second, and more impor tant Declaration was now proclaimed; and a week later, it was followed by an Order in Council, commanding all ministers to read it from their pulpits on two successive Sundays. This order the London clergy disobeyed, and the Primate Sancroft, with six Bishops, drew up a petition against the Declara tion. James was furious. The seven Bishops were committed to the Tower, where they lay for a week before they were set free on bail. During these ex citing events, the news spread that a son was born to James. But few be lieved that the child was of royal blood The general opinion was, that by the connivance of Romanists, a child had been smuggled into the palace, and was now pa...

BIRDS V INSECTSu~ In NaT ae ?he?- is~- general ,ver-,-ling lawi-ich isroughly stated in the com mon saying, "The weakest must go to the wall,5 the action of which is very self evident to those who have given much attention to the study of birds and insects. It is only when man so modifies Nature that the law does not have free action that the balance is destroyed and evil results. ,Insects, as well as the birds, doubtless have their proper place to fill in the great scheme of creation, and, like many things else, when held within bounds are for the common good. "VWhen the cat is away the mice will play?" So when the birds are scarce +-he insects abound, sometimes to our dis comfort, and even dismay. I do not want here to make any plea for the protection of birds on the grounds of beauty oftheir form or colouring, or the sweetness of their songs, but upon the purely utilita raan basis of guardians of crops from the destructive workings of the various in jurious insects. Some birds do...
