A WOMAN WITHOUT HOMEDUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
A WOMAN WITHOUT IOME DUTIES. A woman who has no homce-Udties, or who does not attend to such duties, is a pest to her acquaintances. i.t ! :" take her a long time to make ha; ;;?.ifast toilet, but her outside garent:=.;: : ,o on like magic when she has once` dci:ded to make a morning or afternoon .:i. She will not work, and she will not let her neighbours work. Her acquaintances are kept in a state of chronic discomfort in the expectation of a visit, and a door bell in her vicinity cannot tin: -ithout striking terror to the hea;:r o t i lady of the house. A call from this I ii; person means simply loss of ti: witinut the slightest compensation. The 'ork in the kitchen or the nursery must be aban doned : and thlis means. with practical conscientious housbeceepcrs, not only a giving up of the work for the time, but some time yet to come. I'he work planned for that day and om.itted for that day means overwork at another time, confusion, and anxiety.

THE LAST STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
THE LAST STRAW. Colonial readers only partially understand the height of culture which has been reached in Boston-Bawston, to quote the correct local pronunciation. The following illus tration of Bostonian elevation of thought and taste, given in the Chicago Tribune (Chicago does not like Boston), is to the point. They were standing by the window look ing out at the golden sunset. His arm was around her slender waist, and her head rested confidently on his manly shoulder. Life looked rosy to the youthful pair, and not a visible cloud obscured the firmament of their hopes. "Perseus," she murmured, " it seems in credible that we never met until three weeks ago." " It does, indeed, Andromeda," replied the youth. "We have had hardly time to be come acquainted with each other's views of life and its problems, not to speak of each other's peculiarities and prejudices. Yet it seems as if we must have known one another always." ' And that reminds me, Perseus," rejoined the lovely New Englan...
MIGHTY WINDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
MIGHTY WINDS. - 4-~-- A surprising feature of Swiss avalanch es is the blast of wind-the " Lawinen Dunst"-which precedes the snow mass like,a messenger of death. In order to understand the force of this blast we must bear in mind that hundreds of thousands of tons of snow are suddenly set in motion in contracted chasms. The air displaced before these solid masses acts upon objects in their way like breath blown into a pea-shoo ter. A woman was going to church, follow ing a valley path which some of her neighbours had taken a quarter of an hour before. An avalanche-it must have been a very small one-came down the mountain. The blast which rushed be fore it was so strong that it swept her from the road, lifted her into the air, and landed her at the top of a lofty pine, to which she clung with, all the energy of desperation. The snow rushed under her and left the pine standing. Her neighbours on their way back from church, found her at the top of the tree, and rescued her. At another ...
RATHER COOL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
RATHER COOL. " So you want to marry my daughter, do you?" inquired the father to twenty-two years' growth of trembling manhood. ".Yes, sir, I like her and-and-r" "How can you support her ! What salary do you get ?" "Oh, my salary is small, but I'd come and -and-live with you!" -' Come and live with me, eh ?" And something as hard as an Egyptian pyramid struck the young man amidshiph, and gathering himself up he con cluded to board with his mother a few weeks longer. A mince-pie at bed time is the shortest route to a menagerie. Colonial girls are not mercenary. All are anxious to give themselves away. A certain old Philadelphian has learned that a man sometimes loses by politeness. Ia littd his hat to a young Wai 04 the
SOME THEATRICAL MISHAPS. A RAILROAD ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
SOME THEATRICAL MISHAPS. A RAILROAD ACCIDENT. One of the thrilling scenes in " Across the Continent " is a train of canvas cars that dash acrost? the stage. Why an audi ence will pay to go wild over a lot of bogus ears in a theatre when they can see any ,quantity'of the genuine article down at the depot for nothing is oize of those things I i.eould never find out. The train was such a success that, like Oliver of old, the audi ence was continually asking for.more, and the cars had to be shunted back and forth several times to meet the demand of the time for high dramatic art. There was a glare of light, a shriek of whistle, a roar of steam, a clanguor of bell. and on dashed the locomotive, baggage, car and passenger coaches amid deafening ajlplause. They ran it once not wisely, but too: ill. ' The eengi neer of the locomotive; who in 'the daytime was a carpenter's apprentice, not being 'used to such rapid transit, lost his balance and ,the oil-can he held in his hand. He made ,one w...
WELCOME NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
WELCOME NEWS. Ten little tom-tits Waiting in the snow, Where to get the next meal . Wishing they could know. Two older tom-tits, Perched upon a rail, Bringing such a story, Like some fairy tale : "There's a lovely creature At a cottage door, Scattering us sweet dainties From her pinafore ; " Quite a spread I tell you -Cake and seed and orumb; And when all is ready She will bid us come. S"Oh, her eyes are coloured, Like our heads, soft blue, Ilouths like summer rosebuds, Curls of sunny hue." " Has she wings of silver, Snowy white, or grey ?" "Wings I they have not come yet, But they will, some day !" Little Folks.
Red River Gully. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
Red River Gully. The camp fire. burnt low one clear summer evening ; the full moon had risen, and, as she floated through the banks of fleecy clouds, cast her reflection on the lake in a golden path of rays that stretched from: shore to shore. " Tell you a story ? Wall, I guess I kin," said:the old hunter. looking round the circle with alert bright eyes., "You boys always does want amusin' at this time o' night. 'Red River Gully,' you May. Wall, I s'pose I'd as soon tell you that as ainythin' eise.". He cast a keen glance at us, to be sure he 'should have our attention, and to humour, him, we feigned to move closer, that we might not lose a word.' His weather-beaten face re laxed into a smile ; he was a born nar rator, and loved a sympathetic audience. "L.warn't much over twenty, I guess, boys, when I fell in with a crowd as wanted to go out a gold-diggin' to 'Red River Oully,' out theer to the Black Hill :region. Wall, I hadn't no objections to makin'. money easy, and we was told a...
THAT FATAL PHONOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
THAT FATAL PHONOGRAPH. (From the Pall Mall Gazette.) Of course, I had heard of the thing before. I had a notion that when you turned a handle it recorded human speech by means of electricity. I had also a hazy idea that in shape it resembled a coffee-mill. But little did I think what a power of evil 6an :..., in that seemingly simple mechanical appli ance. My first warning was in the case of my poor friend Spooner. Spooner, like some other young men, was an impressionable young fellow, given to saying things in the secluded corners of drawing rooms that he did not in the least mean his fair inter locutor to hold him to. I often warned him against this dangerous habit, but he always replied, in his jovial way, " My dear sir, I'm as safe as houses. Do you suppose I am not a man of the world ?-(Spooner had a fondness for that jegregious title.)-I never put down a word on paper." Poor fellow ! he was soon destined to find out his mis take. "As you like, of course," I answered; "but do b...
Saved by A Fox. AN ORIGINAL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 17 June 1893
Saved by A Fox. t AN 01URIGINAL STOR-Y. t His name was John Jones; at least, so t he said. He would never tell me where t he came from, and I am doubtful if he was ] so christened He was an old fern- c gatherer; and I. met him in the neighbour- ,i hood of Sedbergh. He told me many I .wonderful stories about himself and his, . doings, and this paper is the substance of one of them, but I have put most -of it a into my own language for the purpose of i publication. ( " You'll know the valley between Whern aide and Ingleborough, sir, just above the town of Ingleton ? There's some beautiful I scenery round Ingleton, sir-waterfalls and glens and shaded nooks: quite an artist's paradise, and as for ferns-I did very well round there, sir; got a good many fine specimens which found a ready sale in Bradford, Leeds, and other large towns. "It was in 18- that I nearly met my fate in one of them nasty holes which are so common round there. I was out one fine day in November, and as I crossed a ...
MARRIAGE MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
MARRIAGE MAXIMS. The following marriage maxims are worthy of more than a hasty reading. Husbands need not pass them by, for they are designed for wives ; and wives should not despise them, for they are addressed to husbands : The very nearest approach to domestic happiness on earth is in the cultivation on both sides of ab-olute unselfishness. Never talk at one another either alone or in company. Never both be angry at the same t me. Never speak loudly to one another-unless the house is on fire. Let each one strive to yield oftenest to the wishes of the other. Let self-denial be the daily aim and practice of each. Never find fault, unless it is perfectly certain that a fault has been committed, all. always speak lovingly. Never taunt with a past mistake. Neglect the whole world besides rather than one another. Never allow a request to be repeated. Never make a remark at the expense of the other-it is meanness. Never part for a day without loving words to think of during absence. Nev...
BONEMEAL FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
BONEMEAL FOR COWS. By some American dairymen bone-flour has been mixed, in very small quantities, with the food of cows, and it was claimned that it improved their vigour and health by supplying the waste of bone. In that country with a super-abundance of Indian corn, which is notably deficient in phosphoric acid-the base of bone-a little bone-flour might be! beneficial, and might sometimes prevent abortion. But where bran is an easily obtainable food, as it contains five times as much material to form and re lace bone as tmaize, it is better to feed with it,

"BABY IS DEAD." [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
: " AB Y IS DEAD." Three little words, passed along the: line, copied somewhere and soon forgotten. But after all was quiet again, I leaned my head upon my hand and fell into a deep reverie of all that those words.may contain-what sorrow they may mean. Somewhere a dainty form, still and cold, unclasped by mother's arms to-night. Eyes that yesterday were bright and blue as the skies of June, dropped to-night beneath white lids that no voice can ever raise-again. ['wo soft hands, whose rose-leaf fingers were wont' to wander lovingly around mother's neck and face, loosely holding white buds, quietly folded in coffined rest. Soft lips, yesterday rippling with laughter. sweet as woodland brook falls, gay as trill of forest bird, to-night unresponsive to call or kiss of love. A silent home-the patter of baby feet for ever. hushed--a little bed vnpressed, little shoes half worn-dainty garments-shoulder knots of blue- to match those eyes of yesterday,: folded with aching heart away. A tiny ...
LOVE-KNOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
LOVE-KNOTS. Love for the mad. Friendship for the sane. Love is blind. Marriage has telescopic eyes. Love is a tent. Friendship a fortress, . We love a lover, but we laugh at him. Real marriage begins in friendship and ends'in love. The little planet Love eclipses the. mighty sun Reason-but not for long. The lover writes lines to auburn tresses. The husband hates red hair. Love is a particular fire for which each bosom furnishes so much fuel. This fuel burned, the fire goes out.
FEED POULTRY REGULARLY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
FEED POULTRY REGULARLY. Early feeding is one of the most important rules on a poultry farm, especially with young stock. The best time to give break fast to both old and young is just after break of day. Especially is this important during the winter season. A young chicken above all other young stock needs early food for protection. It comes into this world with little or no protection from the cold, and must depend upon food for comfort and support. The food secretes the' requisite supply for feathers as well as for bone and muscle, and when the young are fledging is when good and frequent feeding is of vital* importance. For them to fast until 8 or 9 o'clock in the morning is too great a strain upon them, and they show it in their growth and health. Feed the old stock next, and then throw open the doors and windows of the fowlhouses and let in the pure fresh air. Where it is impossible to feed the youngsters shortly after sunrise it is a good plan to put a quantity of 'racked gra...
