DIGGER'S REST. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
DIGGER'S R:ST. [rao 1 ou0 oW\ CO11E5sPONDN.l T.] Friday: A couple of our residents were str prised a few mornings ago to find their clothes lines completely denuded of their contents by some cowardly miscreanut during the night. Will the gentleman who took the clothes kindly call ?nd get the lines as they are of no further use to the owners without the clothes ? A meeting will be held shortly to take into consideration the ardisability of holding a social at a not very distant date. During the second day's coursing at the last meeting at, the Plumpton the record was broken, 25 courses being run without a kill resulting, puss being very fait, completely outdoing the dogs, whicuh reflects credit upon the mana.ge wuent of the caretaker.
CLARKE'S CALF FEEDER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
CLARKE'S CALF FEEDER. Dairymen as a rule show a singular aversion to rearing calves, owinglargely to the little trouble they involve at the outset. Hosts of calves are slaughtered' - and given to pigs without the slightest effort being made to even fatten them for the butcher. What has been wanted for successful calf rearing is some simple appliance which will obviate the necessity for constant attention during feeding time. MIr W. W.Olarke, of Elsternwick, claims to have evolved a little invention that will enable the calf to feed itself as naturally as if it were drawing the milk direct from the mother." His feeder consists of a thin leaden tube turned at one end, to which is affixed a teat similar to the fixture on a feeding-bottle. All that requires to be done in feeding the calf is to attach the bucket containing the milk to a picket fence, place the tube in the bucket, and put the teat through a hole in the paling at a con venient height for the youngster to reach. The teat ca...
A BIT OF WAR ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
A BIT OF WAR ROMANCE. "I'm a Mason," said the man of soldierly bearing, when the drummer had finished a yarn, " and am also a soldier, or was in the late war between the states. I was a general of brigade in the union army, and saw some of the romance as well as the reality of war." " There was more reality than romance about it, wasn't there ?" queried the drum mer. "Rather," smiled the soldier, "but: it made the romance only the more delightful. I remember on one occasion when we were down in Georgia, where most of the office seekers come from now. I was out one morning with a couple of orderlies, riding along a hillside road, which just ahead of us met another coming up from the valley. As we rode slowly along I heard the sound of a horse's hoofs on the road below and the clanking of a sabre. None of the enemy in force was anywhere near that locality, and I felt sure that some stray confed was riding that way; and we went ahead till we could command a view of the, road below, and...
THE USE OF BRAN IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
THE USE OF BRAN IN THE DAIRY. As a plant makes all its substance from food, and it is necessary for the production of a crop to supply it with every element of its substance in due proportion, so with animals, every ele ment of the body and the expected product is to be supplied in excess of those needed to sustain life. Bran is a valuable food for certain purposes. It supplies the material for making bone, and this is needed by old animals as well as young, for it is known that the bones of an old animal are replaced to some extent during the whole of its existence. It is also an excellent flesh producing food, and it provides the elements of milk except the fat. Bran has all the needed elements for nutrition for the sustenance of life in the pro portion required, but it is deficient in the fat needed for butter. Thus, alone, it is not a suitable food for the dairyman. To furnish the quantity of fat for a pound of butter, a cow must eat forty pounds of bran, allowing for the un avo...
WIT IN THE PULPIT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
WIT IN THE PULPIT. Although an extreme gravity of demeanour is g?nerally considered essential to the proper conduct of religious services, num berless e_:: :ples are on record in which the occupant of a pulpit has thought it not in consistent with his position to indulge in outbursts of wit, or to give free reign to his sense of humour. In so:ne i s ances, of course, this has been done de!iberately, for the purpose of more thorouu;hly engaging the attention of the congregation ; but the effects have been occasionally somewhat startling. Sydney Smith was once preaching to a con gregation in Edinburgh, m?ade up almost ex clusively of ladies. He chose for his text the words, " 0 ihat men would therefore praise the Lord," laying special stress on the word men, and looking significantly around the church. The Rev. Dr. Howard, rector of St. George's, Southwark, and chaplain to Prin cess Augusta, was so fond of good living that he ran considerably into debt with many of the tradesmen in hi...
THE ANTHEM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
THE NTPi EMt. It was a new anthem, composed by the village organist, and this was its effect: The soraxno started off with the very laud able, though rather startling announcement, " I will wash." Strai,,htway the alto, not to be outdone, declared that she would wash. And the tenor, finding it to be the thing, wa ulied fortn he would wash. 'hen the deep-chested basso, as though c:L ing up all his fortitude for the plunge, be ,iowe:l forth the stern resolve that he also, ,\ould wash. Next a short interlud, on the7-organ, strongly suggestive of the :escaping of steam, or the splashi of the waves, after which the choir individually and coeicctively asserted, the iritu unshaken resolve that they would. Ai lastt they solved the ,. ,em by stating that tii:yv proposed to " ,vh :heir hands in On seeing a house being whitewadbhl, a small boy S-L.d, .Mlan, ift.` please, are you going to shave? , : J.U6 ' -: :-- £-' :2
IMPROVING THE MIND BY BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
IMPROVING THE MIND BY BOOKS, There is not a greater misfortune in life than the want of will to improve the mind. The want of this will is an inlet to misery and vice of all kinds, that tend to ruin the happiness of human life to a greater extent than might readily be be lieved. All leisure moments hang hea vily on the person on whom this grievous affliction lies, and as a result more evil propagated than good. When occasions occur that their ordinary manner of pass ing their time cannot be indulged in, the misery they feel is beyond description; being out of their element, like fish in a pine-wood, and failing to get their in satiable gratifications appeased, they feel miserable, and everything around them is inharmonious to their existence, no matter how beautiful and entertaining their surroundings may be. They know little, and care as little about them. The length of the clay is tedious, and they have the unreasonableness to complain of the shortness of life in general, because ...

WHAT DID HE EXPECT? [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
WHAT DID HE EXPECT? Mr. Slowpay: "I don't like to com plain about trifles, Mrs. Snapper, but my hash appears to consist largely of frag ments of deal board." Mrs. Snapper (the landlady) : " Well, what kind of board do you expect for the money you pay me? Polished ma hogany ?" "Yes, said the stranger, " I have made over £200 this year by parachute des .cents." "You are a baloonist, eh ?' "No; I am an undertaker.') AN AMERICAN OPINION ON THE LAWS OF DIVORCE. A man and a woman marry. They have no children, so it is only a question of them selves and society. After a time, what they mistook for love cools into indifference or sours into aversion. They agree that they would be happier and better off apart. Shall the State compel such a couple to remain bound to each other for life? If so, why? For the sake of their souls ? But the State has no business with this or any similar consideration. For the sake of their own good in this world, then ? But so far as any one can see, their own goo...
A REMINDER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
-A REMINDER. Lives of poor men oft remind us Honest men won't stand a chance; The more we work there grows behindi Bigger patches on our pants. On our pants, once new and glossy, Now are mtripes of different hue, All beeause cus1to!mnrs linger, And won't pay us what is due. Then let us all be up an.d doing, Send us your mite, however small, Or when the cold of winter strikes us We shall have no pants at all. Does this remin I you of anything. Never put off till to-morrow, etc. A Hastings business man, who had effected a 4.00 insurance on his pre mises but neglected to complete the transaction by sending in the necessary papers, was a heavy loser by the recent fire. Two days after he agreed to insure, the file camne and burnt him out. :Makes you careful? Missing word compe itors shou'l take care of their spicling. An office boy itn London struck the right word in one comijCtitioi , viz. : 'iiacc 1ntalhe,' and sent in three coupons so filled up. But he spelt 'unaccountable' with one c...
A MAN'S LEG. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
t MAN'S LEG. There was an immense sensation created at the M- Statio, the other day just previous to the starting of the afternoon express for Sunbury. The S. M. was about to start the train, when a short, fat, pursy old aentle man trotted up to him and ex claimed : Wait a minute, will- you: please while I Impossible sir !" interrupted the official, putting the whistle to his lips. Tie train is overdue now. But you must wait ! , cried he old gentleman excitedly. ? There is a man's leg underneath the wheel. Good gracious ! why didn't you say so at first ? Where is he ? inquired the horror-stricken Station bMaster. Hold on there ! And having stoppedr the train he hurried after the old gn.mtleman, while a couple of porters jumped down on the line, amid the excitement of a number of spectatrs. After a short seaich one of the porters handed up a rush basket con taiining a large and fine looking leg of mu tto n. Thank you, said the old gen tleman, and seizing the basket he entered a first...

BUSHRANGING IN 1842. (T THE EDITOR OF THE SUNBURY NEWS.) [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
BUSHRANGING IN 1842. ( T THE EDITOR 016 THE SUNBURY NEWS.) Sir,-In my account of the killing of the bushranger Williams, I adhered strictly to the narrations of Edward Theodore Flintoff, Esq., and Mr Martin Batey. Only a few short years ago, in a conversation with- Mr Flintoff respect ing those bushrangers. that gentleman made the statement I previously wrote. The forgone quotations, if not quite word for word, were the exact context of what Mr Flintoff related to me. My father, Frederick Nevins Flintoff, John Farrington (in the employ'of Sergeant son) Authony Beale, the Flemmings, the Bears, the Bells, Armstrongs, Donaldsons. James Dover Hill, Henry Redman Farrell, the Howdens, and a host of others, believed that Williams met his end in the manner I described. In accordance with what we accepted as facts, I represented Williams as being killed with a clubbed gun in the hands of Mr Peter Snodgrass. My crude sketch relating to the capture of those men appears to have given umbrage, j...
MERRILY GOES THE MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
MERRILY QOES 'THE MILL Merrily goes the mill stream on, Merrily goes the nmiil, And merry to-night shall be my song, As ever the'lark's ga; trill; While the stream rhall flow, And the mill shall go,. And my-garners are richly stored, Come all who will, There's a welcome ttill At the jovial miller's boawd. Merrily goes the mill stream on, Merrily goes the mill. Well mayothe miller's heart be light, Well may his-song be gay, For the rich man's smile and the poor man's prayer Have been his for many a day. And they bless the name Of the miller's dame In cots where the lowly mourn; For want and woe At her coming, go, i And joy and peace return. Merrily goes the mill stream on, Merrily goes the mill. Fair is the miller's daughter, too, With her locks of golden hair; With her laughing. eye and her sunny Drow, Still better is she than fair. She hath lightened toil With her witching smile, And if ever his heart was sad,. Let her sing the song He hath loved so long; , And the miller's heart w...
TRAVELLING BY PNEUMATIC TUBE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
TRAVELLING BY PNEUMATIC TUBE. A company has been formed at Hamburg for the purpose of putting into practice and working an idea for the conveyance of pas singers by pneumatio tubes, in the same way as letters and telegrams are forwarded in several countries. It is intended to commence by constructing a line, or tube, between Hamburg and Buo hen, a distance of 15 miles, and the journey will be performed in less than eleven minu tes, or an average speed of between 85 and 90 iniles an hour. This rate will be consid erably increased as time goes on and things get into working order. The passengers, three in number, ill take their seats in a cylinder about 42 inches in diameter and G}. feet long, which will be lighted electrically by a small incandescent lamp, and will be properly supplied with fresh air stored in a special reservoir. The iron tubes are being constructed by a special process; and the maximum speed will be reached in three seconds. In bpite of the great speed, the motion ...

SO FOND OF TRAVELLING.? They were sitting beside a river, in the ihade of a willow. The day was gloriously fine, and .the faces of the sweethearts, like the weather, were radiantly bright. " And do you love.me so devotedly, dear, he said, that you -will give i;p, home -and friends, and all that makes your young life bright and happy, to become my wife, and go with me to the, uttermost ends of the world, if necessary ?" " Yes, George," she whispered, softly; '" when I am your wife, your thoughts shall be my. thoughts. your hopes my hopes, your religion my religion; and, if you should want me to go to the uttermost ends of the world with you I will go-oh, so gladly, George-for I am so fond of travelling." _ .
