Tue deve!opment of a ou:' natural resource' s":ould -L' ti-e c'jiof object of a government. The cult'iv. -. tion of the soil is of cou'se the main factor in a natson'. walth, but it is not by any means the only aid to progress. Pastoral and mineral pur suits do much to build up the fabric of national success. In a colony like Victoria, abundantly blessed with mi•neral deposits, a. full share of attention should be given to the de velopment of such natural vrealth. The gold cra brought uncxauzplcd wings, and even non- it forni an knpuriaat icaura of ou, s ,ir .rl world. It is highly probable that. for halfa century to come, payable gold will be found in the colony, either in deep sinkings, or in new areas. Ex pensive machinery will no doubt be required, but that will only give fresh life to the engineering trade. It is not, however, in gold that the greatestmineral wealth lies. In such humble substances as coal and tin there are possibilities which are not to be. found in auriferous ...

On Saturday last there was another very large audience greeted Mr. Turner, who had provided an ,xcellent programme.

I would advisa anyone who wishes a good evening's entertainment to pay a visit to the Exhibition any Saturday evening.

The West Melbourne Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894

The nian, a wharf laborert named Weymouth George Wash, resided with his wife and fam ly and two lodgers in Latrobe Street, and owing to the drink ing habits of the one and the shrewdish conduct of the other, the relations of thi two have never been as happy as one might wish. The immediate cause of the tmurder was a quarrel over some wages which the wife had expected and had not received from 1:et l,::h~t-c. :ho had evident:y lett some with a publican. Failing to satisfactorily account for the missing money, the man was assaulted with a tirade of abuse, to escape vwhich he retired to a bedroom to have a sleep,, warning her at the same time time not to disturb him.

PETERSHAM'S PERFIDY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894
PETERSHAM'S PERFIDY, Anna Maria Selina Guffhad, likemany historical notabilities, two strings to her bow-or rather two beaux to her string. That fact stated, what more natural than that the rival individuals should hate one another with abitterand acrimonious hatred ? What more probable than that their names should be Potts and Peter. sham ? The beauteous Guff doted on savages; she certainly loved savages better than she did Potts. As for Petershamn, though he was the favoured swain, his place in Miss Guff's regards was still a trifle lower than the savages. " Mr. Petersham," said the fair one, on an afternoon when the love-morn youth had been basking in her smiles to a degree which almost rendered freckles a possibility, "it's the evening for the mis sionary meeting at Exeter Hall, and dear Dr. Moffile presides. Let us go." And they went accordingly. Curious to relate, Potts went also. He caught sight of Anna Maria Selina and her companion in the Strand, and he followed them on the...

THE KING'S LITTLE JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894
THE KING'S LITTLE JOKE. A Swedish statesman recently inveigh ed most eloquently in Parliament against oleomargarine. Next evening he was invited to dine with the king, who loves a joke. There was only oleomargarine on the royal table, and the statesman liberally partook thereof. At the close of 'he meal the king asked him "\Well, sir, how do you like our butter ??" " It is excellent," replied the states man; "thl contrast between it and arti ficial butter is very marked." "But," said the king, "that is artificial butter !t" The other guests roared with laughter, but the "old parliamentary hand " re turned, quick as a flash "Your Majesty, if one can be deceived so easily, there is all the more need of strict laws against bogus goods." By listening to the discourse of the -rsump with the servant eirl, yo'll find that the trans's qite ta as a?n.attr dinner a.?e.?, . .

MELODRAMA IN REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894
MELODRAMA IN REAL LIFL A little ofthe romantic, Swift tells us, is no ill ingredient to preserve and exalt the dignity of human.nature. And in this dictum all will concur. But there is a great tendency on the part of minds both great and small to impart alittle too much of this sort of thing into everyday affairs. We all know the story concern ing the draniatic instinct ofasoldier who bore a reprieve for a companion ordered to be shot. He rode at headlong speed until he reached a summit command ing the camp wherein the doomed man lay, and then waited until the sun had risen above the horizon, and the firing party had turned out and was proceeding to the place of execution. One of the outposts remonstrated with him for de laying his glad tidings, asking why he did not ride on, and so relieve his com rade's feelings. "What !" exclaimed the messenger, indignantly; "would you have me spoil all the dramatic effect ?i A minute later he clapped spurs to his horse, and waving the reprieve a...
