TREAT YOUR BOYS WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 27 February 1877
T?BAT YOUR BOYS WILL . Some mothers try to reach the soft side of the boy's nature with a kind wordl; some with a harsh word; sad some with an old slipper. Some mothers try it in this manner :-" Now you great, big lubber, get right out of here, and stop that out landish noise, will you! Don't you know better than to whistle in the house? You are always in the road. Go away, and don't let me see your face again to day." Now Jim, John, or Peter-what ever his name may be - will withdraw, and boy-like will say nothing; but boy like again, will keep up a big thinking. Itf we could reach his thoughts it is more than likely they would run in this chan nel: "Now why can't mother give a fellow a kind word once in a while ! I know I ain't the worst boy in the world, but she appears to think so. If I am al ways in her way, why does she always call for me when she wants a pail of water or an armful of wood ? Why ain't I in her road then ? It must be a disgrace to be a boy, for she and sisters a...

The Chronicle. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 27 February 1877
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1377. Ir must be very satisfactory to the Turk to be informed that England has no intention of coercing him into making those internal reforms, which are abso lutely necessary for the continued exis tence of his empire. Of course, it is always unpleasant to be coerced, even into doing what is right and necessary. Any man, whether he be a kiog or a clodhopper, a sultan or a street-sweeper, likes very much to be allowed to act upon his own discretion, even though such action may lead him into all sorts of indiscretions. Personal freedom is precious to everybody, and it is always cheering to hear from our neighbors that they have not the least idea of inter fering with us. Such satisfaction, as we say, the Turk has received in regard to England. But the friendly assurance is backed up by a second intimation not quite so agreeable. England adds that she shall not interfere, even though any other power should take in hand to coerce the Turk. This assurance, we shou...

CRICKET. CAMPERDOWN Y. COLAC. The third match between these clubs took place at Colac on Saturday last, the resuolt oeing another defeat. to the strong team sent up by the local club. The matea was won oy 14 runs, but had there been time to allow fits being fiiL-hed, it would have resulted in an easy victory fur the Camperduwn J..C., who only had 21 runs to get, and seven ,vickets to fail The grund, as is usun a at Culac, was very bumpy, and this, together with the good fielding of several of the Colac placers, was mainlv attributed to the defeat of the visitors. Arcber was the tep scorer on the Ciiae side, making 16 in bot innings. fhorlntn and Brsudey batted well fur Cam perdown, but w hen the former had 10, he was uuaortunately thrwn out; Bramley carried out his bat f r 7. in the second innings of the local csub, Colborn and Henry played mr-h better, the former making 21 by good play. In the bowling line, Henry, in both i Osng', was again very destructive. The -c-res are as foliw...

FOOD FOR LEAN WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 1 March 1877
FOOD FOR LEAN WOMAN.I. The Druggists' Circular tells how lean women may grow fleshy, as follows :-A pint of milk taken before retiring at night will cover the scrawniest bones. There are many lean and lank females who sigh for the fashionable measures of plump ness, and who would be vastly improved in health could their figures be rounded with good solid flesh. Nothing is desired more by a thin woman than a full figure, and nothing so provokes the scandal of one of the " clipper builds" as the conscious ness of plumpness in a rival. In cases of fever and summer complaints, milk is now given with excellent results. The idea that milk is feverish has exploded. It is a great mistake to scrimp the milk pitcher. John A. Frampton, the man charged with imposing upon Mr. Dwyer of the National Hotel, Geelong. by means ef a valueless cheque was committed for trial at the Police Court on Monday. Mr. John Wilson, of Gala, Lismore, the gentleman whose name was attached to the cheque, gave eviden...
EXTRAORDINARY CONFLICT WITH BLACKS. (AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS TELEGRAMS.) BRISBANE, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 1 March 1877
EXTRAORDLYAR i COYFLICT WI'TH BLACKS. (AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED 'RESS TEELORA?MS.) BRISBANs., February 26. The steamer Blackbird arrired at Cook town on Saturday, and landed three wounded men from the schooner Douglas. The story of the crew and their encounter with the blacks is a most extraordinary one. The Douglas left Cairns last month for Guano Island. On the way, she called atan Island off Cardwell and procured three aboriginals. On her arrival at Guano Island, two of the crew and two blacks went ashore, when the latter killed the former ; then swam to the vessel, and killed the mate with an axe. Two other sailors and the captain came up on deck, when they were attacked, wounded, and forced to retire into the cabin. The cook took refuge in the galley, and the three sesmen in the rigging. Next day, the cook shot one of the blacks. The crew then armed themselves, and shot another black in the rigging, and afterwards the third, who had jumped overboard.
