PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
PATRIOTISM. Mr. Artemus Ward, speaking of the Amcri can civil war, declared that it was a time when " every man should show his patri otism. Every man should make sacrifices for our great and glorious Republic. I my self am prepared to sacrifice my cousins, yes, and even all my wife's relations." A rifle captain marched his men to the very brink of a canal, and coolly commanded them to " fall in." On a dark night, with four clothes-lines t etched across the baok yard, the most
SHE HIT UPON A NOVEL PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
SHE HIT UPOiN A NOVEL PLAN. A pretty little lady residing in the east part of Bloomington suspected her derelict husband and his clandestine manaouvres. She felt morally certain that he had a post office box where he received private letters and surreptiously held high court with his fair correspondents. She inquired at the post-office, but received little or no satisfac tion. The suspicious wife hit upon a novel plan to detect her liege lord. He was called out of the city on business. In a true temi nine way she addressed a " personal" to her dearly beloved. The envelope at either end was stained heavily with blood-red ink. Sure enough it found its destination when it nestled in the private box of the wayward man. Stepping to the delivery window she said, in a matter of fact way : "Please let me have what's in box----. I forgot the key, and my husband wants me to forward the letters." She gave the number of the box through the glass wall of which she could see her own letter. The c...

NOT A LEGAL TENDER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
NOT A LEGAL TENDER. The other day a sharp-looking youth 1 walked up quickly to the counter of the post office in a town not a hundred miles from Melbourne, and, emptying a bag of coppers thereon, asked the cle:k, who was attending to other customers for five shillings worth of penny stamps. " Oh, you be bothered !" was the answer. "That's not a legal tender; it is all copper." "What is a legal tender, then ?" asked the boy. " Why, one penny is a legal tender for a penny stamp." " Oh," exclaimed the youth, " is it ? Come on then-" passing a coin from the heap-" a penny stamp, please." The clerk gave him one. "Another, please." A second was given him. "Ano -" " Here, stop that," the clerk said ; "give me the money. It will be the shortest way to get rid of you." After counting the money, he gave the value thereof in stamps to the lad, who was heard to muttter, " I thought I'd tire him out I"
THE VEGETABLE FLY OF THE WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
THE VEGETABLE FLY OF THE WEST INDIES. One of the most curious natural pro ductions of the West Indies is the famed vegetable fly,an insect about the size and colour of a drone bee, but without wings. In the month of May it buries itself in the earth and begins to vegetate. By the beginning of June a sprout has issued from the creature's back and made its appearance above the surface of the ground. By the end of July,the tiny tree (known .on the island as the fly-tree) has attained its full size, being then about three inches high, but a perfect tree in every particu lar,' much resembling a delicate coral branch. Pods appear on its branches as soon as it arrives at its full growth These ripen and drop off in August. Instead of containing seeds, as one would naturally suppose, these pods have from three to Jix 14 allý k4 ý?Q ;1t\ i i9 t4p ipty GaC
FICTION AND FACT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
FICTION AND FACT. There is rarely a circumstance or char acter invented by the imagination that does not find its parallel in real life. A year or more ago, a writer described in a story the adventures and vicissitudes of an erring lad who ran away from home to follow the sea. The tale was pure fiction, and the author invented for his young sailor, a name unlike any he had everheard. Soon after the story was published, its author received a pathetic letter from a sorrowing mother, saying the sailor boy in the story was her only son, and beg ging for his address. "Tell him, she wrote, " if he will only come home I will forget and forgive all the past. I am alone in the world, and if my dear son will but return to me I will be happy again." . .'' It was hard to write to this poor moth er that the sailor boy of the story, whose name, adventures, and life, so closely resembled her son's was but im agination. " While addressing a jury in a crimin al case a few years ago," said a lawyer, ...

"Darling," she said, "God did.not make little girls orily to please themselves : we must be kind if we want others to be kind to us." Next day when Reta, was reading, mamma came ini and said : "Who will come and carry some eggs to poor Mary's' sick child? I want them to go at once before the rain comes on." Dick and Daisy jumped up, but Reta wanted to finish her story. "I don't want to," she said. When they were gone. Reta felt sorry, and: still more so when Dick came home with a new boat and Daisy with a doll. Mam ma had afterwards taken them to the bazaar, where they had seen all kinds of beautiful things. Reta cried, and she never said " I don't want to" again.

NATIVES OF TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
NATIVES OF TASMAINIA. Early in this century the Island of Tasmania, or Van Dieman's Land as it was once called, began to be peopled by folk from Great Britain. Rough times of it these settlers had for many a year, but their chief troubles came from the blacks and the bushrangers. The numbers of the natives has: never been large, and con stant fighting with the new comers had reduced them still more. Now this state of things shocked a good many persons, and Sir George Arthur, the Governor, tried to put an end to it by attempting to persuade the blacks to retire to a part of the island where they should be out of harm's way. But this well-meant plan failed, and the cruel warfare went on as before. " There was, however, a certain man named Robertson, a bricklayer and builder by trade, who was pained at the treatment of the blacks, and he resolved to do what lay in him to change it. His notion was to go single-handed among the natives, and advise them to leave the mainland altogether. O...

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
GRAINS OF GOTD. If you be nettled with severe raillery, take care never to show that you are stung, unless you choose to provoke more. Whence comes happiness ? From tran quility and self-control. Men. without self restraint drift .before their, passions like rudderless boats before the wind. There is nothing in the world which gives such scope to discontent as idleness, no matter whether frced or voluntary. A man had better be darning stockings than doing nothing.

Mrs. Newrich (who recently entertained a Count): " Have you ever had any foreign noblemen as guests ?" Mrs. Manorborn (quirtly): " No; only as servants." Mr. de Rich :~" What a sad, sweet face Miss Psyche has! She never smiles, She must have met with some great loss." Mise Destuart: " Yes; she was in a railway ace: dent some weeks ago, and lost a fro:t tootlh." A simple, plain-spoken countryman once criticised city folk after the following pithy fashion:.--" They be either so stuck up that ye cannot reach them with a haystack pole, or so blamed friendly that they forget to pay their board. " My grandfather," said Coverot, died at the age of ninety-four." " My grandmother was 103 when she died, remarked Turpin. "And in my family," put in Guibollard, not to be outdone in boasting, "are several who ain't dead yet." "You shouldn't be so uncharitable towards your fellow men," said a man to a friend who had been railing at human nature in general. " Remember that all men are yourbrethren....
A MONSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
A MONSTER. Those who have seen, a diving-suit are aware of the frightful appearance of amin. arrayed in it. The front of the head-piec, is a large circular pane of glass, giving the wearer the appearance of a. hideous Cyclops. From the top of the head runs a rubber tube for supplying air to the diver, and there is also a rope for hauling him up. In the early days of the gold excite ment in California, a Mr Potts and his partner, both miners, decided that there was gold at the head-waters, of the San, Joaquin. They discovered a deep hole in. the bed of one of the forks, and concluded. that, if there was gold anywhere in the bed of the stream, it was in that. hole. They tried diving to the bottom; but the water was too deep, and they fouid them selves in a dilemma. Mr Potts' partner te thought himself of a diving-suit in San Francisco which he could procure,.and the decision was reached that he should.go and bring it. This he did, arriving with it after some time.. Mr Potts' partner a...
