UMBRELLAS AND HATS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

UMBRELLAS AND HATS, : Of umbrellas lost and purloined, found. r. rescued at peril of life; the stories are numerous. The hat has not had so ro Inantic and chequered a career, but this little hat story equals the average um brella anecdote. One wet. day, ..recently, a gentleman upon entering 'a restaurant placed his well-worn hat upon, the seat, and was, in a short time, busy with the contents of his plate. At the conclusion of the meal, and whilst preparing to de part, he was much astonished to find that his weather-beaten castor had been re placed by a bran-new silk hat, and he accepted the exchange in a philosophic spirit. The next day, upon visiting the same restaurant, he was accosted by. a young man, who politely remarked, "Doctor, allow me to claim my hat, and apologise for the apparent mistake. The fact is, I had no umbrella, and you had. I did not know what to do to pre vent my new hat from being spoilt in the rain, and as I saw yours could not be affected by the wet, I borr...

ONLY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

ONLY. Only a baby, kissed and caressed, Gently held to mother's breast. Only a child, toddling along, Brightening now its happy home. Only a boy, trudging to school, Governed now by sterner rule. Only a youth, living in dreams, Full of promise life now seems. Only a man, battling with life, Shared in no.v b" io;ving wife. Only a father, burduned with care, Silver threads in dark brown hair. Only a greybeard, toddling again, Growing old and full of pain. Only a mound, o'ergrown with grass, Dreams unrealised-rest at last.

SCALLOPED BEEF. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

SCALLOPED BEEF.-Chop the remainder of some cold beef finely, as for hash, put it into a greased dish, and moisten with gravy or melted butter, into which has been stirred a good teaspoonful of Worcester sauce. Be careful that the mince is not too dry. Spread over the top a thick layer of mashed potato, which has been softened by the addition of half a cupful of milk, a beaten ctg, and a tablespoonful of butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake (covered) for twenty minutes and then brown. PEA Soup.-Take any stock made from the remains of joints or bonos by stewing them slowly the entire day. Into the liquid thus obtained put two large onions and six large carrots chopped very fine, salt, pepper, and half a pint of split peas ; also a little stale bread cut up small. Be most careful to skim off every particle of fat from the liquor before adding the peas and vegetables ; turnips cut up small may also be added. If this soup is allowed to simmer slowly for five hours, more hot water being...

ASTHMA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

ASTHMA. Asthma may be described as a disease con sisting of paroxysms of difficult breathing. The difficulty may be due ta.one or more of several canses ; in most cases it is probably produccd by a nervous or spasmodic con traction of the muscles surrounding the bronchial tubes, by which their calibre is greatly reduced so that an insufficient supoly 'of air can pass along them. An attack of asthma is practically partial suffocation. The same difficulty of breathing can also: be set up by the flow of too much blood-to the mucous membrane of the bronchial tubes, for the excess of blood thickens the mucous membrane and diminishes the passage through the tubes. Beth the above causes are really of nervous origin, and might exist entirely without any physical defect or mechanical interference, but asthmatic tron bles may be caused by the latter, for various lung diseases as well as kidney and heart diseases may set up the shortness of breath, or particles of irritating dust may enter the...

"LOVE AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

"LOVE AT HOME." A lady writer says :-"A true mother should not allow herself to believe that her children will always naturally love each other. It should be her duty to teach them to do so. She should begin from their early childhood. Each should be taught that he or she should be willing to divide everything with sisters or brothers. They should not be allowed to dispute or quarrel. The boys should not have to give up to the girls be cause they are girls, nor the girls to the boys because they are boys. Each should be com pelled to respect the other's rights. There are few sights more beautiful than a family of brothers and sisters confiding in each other, protecting each other, delighting in each other's society-but, alas, how seldom we see it ! Too often we hear a brother grumble if asked to escort his sisters, and few sisters are willing to discommode them selves for the sake of a brother. A kind, attentive brother so surely mikes a good husband, and if I were a man I would nev...

POETRY. The Forgotten Man. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

P O E TER Y. The Forgotten Man. Unknown to glory or to fame, The world ne'er hears his humhbl name, Unnoticed he for praise or blau,- The father-in-law. Yet on his quiet way he plods, And c shes cheques or carries hods, Or rules the world with becks and nods The father-in-law. And when I view my better half, I often think, with sigh or laugh, Of him who winnowed wheat from chaff My father-in-law. WVho was it taught my youthful lord To drive a nail and saw a board, And follow truth in deed and word? My father-in-law. Who, in the dark house-cleaning days, My style and system oft wmald praise, And never mention "mother's ways? My father-in-law. Who, was it taught my husband how To shoe a horse and hold a plough, And 'to all womankind to bow? My father-in-law. Who, when the grocer's bill is due, And dollars hard to get and few, Comes to the rescue, firm and true? My father-in-law. Who more than grandma spoils my sons, And buys them marbles, knives and guns, And feeds the baby frosted bu...

BARBER-OUS! [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

BARBER-OtTS! Will some of the public spirited individuals who make it their business to explain the why and wherefore of life's daily worries please explain why a barber cannot learn to comb hair? It would seem to a snffering victim that the gentlemanly tonsorial artist shouli be abic, better than anyone else, to so arrange man's capillary adornment as to tend to a harmonious ensemble. Certainly the general character of the face has much to do with the proper and artistic arrangement of the locks. Who, for instance, could think of an aged poet without calling to mind a vision of flowing white lair and shining temples? How quickly is the gentlemen of sporting proclivities made known b - his closely cropped head, the hair growing low on his forehead. Equally distii.ctive are the crimped bangs of that harmless and nu.:h abused creature, the dude. When the average man sits down in a barber's chair and says concistly "hair cut,' it is with fear and trembling as to the probable effect the...

THE TRAMP MUSICIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893

THr TRAMP MUSICIAN. The household goods of a ruined million aire were being sold at auction and a fashionable assemhly of bidders were present. The auctioneer came to a handsome grand square piano, and, as he opened it, he observed that the maker's catalogue price for the instrument was £250. 'Then he invited anyone present to try the instrument, so all might hear its tone. " Please come forward and play something, someone -anyone," he urged, noticing nobody seemed inclined to accept the invitation. At this second call there was a stir near the door, and then a man advanced-a man who -seemed strangely out of place among the elegantly attired people assembled in that grand parlor. It was a-ragged, soiled: tramp, on whose face hardship and dissipation had left their imprints A murmur of astonishment and disgust ran around the room. How came such a creature there ? What right had he in that room with decent people ? How did he gain admittance ? The faultlessly attirea men fell back as ...

To :think that -a company, sup osed to be constituted of respectable men, could be guilty of such a mean contemptible trick is almost incredible. It is quite clear to anyone the motive they had in view in placing one of their wun number at the door as cashier, and not agreeing" to admission: by: ticket, which was the only way of possessing a check, After going to the trouble and 'expense of giving an- entertainment to find instead of a surplus, as should have been, the' club is unable to pay expenses, as not very gratifying ; but I ...

(TO t't E'DITOR OF THE SNB'URY NEWS) Sir,--I much regret the Tivoli Concert Company ever having associated its name 'with that of the Sunbury junior football ,club, after reading Mr A.

I have therefore to 'eqdes: that you will be good enough to ublish these few remarks on the effusion."

In the perpetual anticipation 'of finding something truthful in the text sentence or paragraph one forgot the disappointment which the last had so often occasioned. Notwithstanding the mnodestyof terming the letter an effusion for anything even though it be irrational can be such-one has come across few.

"How glad .I am, dearie, that our. tastes are, so very similar," said young Mrs. Honeylip to her husband when they' had re turned from their.bridal tour and were fur nishing the. flat in which they were to be ".so perfectly happy."

FUN AND -ANCY. Gas bills are, of course, written in long meter. Ask any one who has to pay them. Marrying rich widows, like drinking liquor, is often done solely for the " effects." The world owes every man a living, but it is a debt that he has to hustle to collect. " So you, too, have won a wife at last !" "I have; but, alas I she's the one and I'm two." A man asks a woman's love before he marries her; after marriage he demands her gratitude. Jack--"A friend in need is a friend in deed." Tom-- Um-ye-es-if he doesn't need too much." There is never any difficulty about get ting an " influential committeee " for any thing under the sun, "Don't you know, prisoner, that it's very wrong to steal a pig ?" " I do now, your Honour. They make such a row.' Mrs; Gazzam (reading the newspaper) "Here's an article about 'A Fatal Flirta tion.'" Gazzam-" They got married did they ?"
