THE SUMMER SUN IS WANING. The days are getting shorter; The nights are dark and chill; A mist is on the water ; A haze is on the hill; I hear the winds complaining : The summer sun is waning." The summer sun is waning I And this is what it means It's useless longer feigning To live within the "teens ;" My youth is disappearing The winter days are nearing. The winter days are nearing; The leaves are turning brown; The wind that's now careering Will beat the bravest down; The birds have ceased their singing, And some are homeward winging, The swallows, homeward winging, Can see the end's at hand; The pendulum is swinging Of sorrow through the land; I hear the winds complaining : " The summer sun is waning."

AGE-TELLING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894

AGEl-TELLIKNG. Hera is a device by means of which a smart youngster nay for a few moments puzzle an elder. The youngster undertakes to tell the age of the elder. He begins by taking as many nines as there are figures in the number which represents his own age, and from the number thus formed he sub tracts his own age. He then tells the result to his senior, and requests him to add to it mentally his own age, and to take the first figure of the resultant sum and add it to the last. Upon learning the sum of this addi tion, the youngster adds it to his own age, and thr.s obtairs the age of his elder. For examinle, let the boy be 14, and the man 49: ¶L'here are two figures in 14. and deduct ing 14 from 99, one gets 85. Adding 83 to 49 the elder gets 134, and removing the first figure of the result aud adding it to the last, he gets 35. This is the diference between the ages of the two, and by adding it to his own age, the youngster is able to say that the age of his senior is 49. Should...

A Methodist minister, while relating some reminiscences of his early days in the ministry, said : "One day, while travelling between stations, I so timed myself as to arnive at a good brother's in the country about dnner-time.

SOME CHRISTENING ODDITIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894

SOME CHRISTENING ODDITIES. It is simply astoml-fi ir-the mania that some parents of all classes hase for giv ing outrageous names to their children. It is really time some steps n ere taken to give the little people themselves a voice in the matter. To a large class Bible names have an irresistible attraction, and the famnil' de liberations are guided by a reference to the pages of Holy w-it. Here are a rew of the results. A Nottingham gentleman called his sons in the order of their birth, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and to preserve the succession, when the fifth and sixth arrived they were severally named Actnyer and Romanser. The same town rejoices in a Benoni, a Pha raoh, a Hephzibah, several Kerenhap puchs, and last, but certainly not least, a Maharshalalhashaz. Olive Cromwell, Latimer, Caractacus, John ,Xesley, Wesley Ann (Wesleyan?) Spurgen Luther, Mark Anthony, Ham let, Romeo, and Samuel Weller are a few examples of hern-worship. Some few people suffer under names which, i...

BURDETTS ADVICE TO A YOUNG MAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 5 October 1894

BURDETI'S ADVICE TO A YOUNG MAN. .fy son, don't be in too great a hurr-- to accept " advanced opinions." It is "the thing" to be advanced in this progressive day and generation, but there's a heap of shalloswness in it. Did you never notice, my son, that the man who tells you he cannot believe the Bible is usually able to believe almost anything else ? You will find men, my son, who turn with horror and utter dis belief of the Bible, and joyfully embrace the teachings of Buddha. It is quite the thing, just now, my son, for a civilised, enlightened man, brought up in a Christian country and an age of wisdom, to be a Buddhist. And if u ask six men who profess Buddhism who Buddha was, one of them will tell you he was an' Egyptian soothsayer, who lived 200 years before Moses. Another will tell you that he brought letters from Phwenicia and introduced them in Greece. A third u-ill tell you that she was a beautiful woman of farther India, bound by her vows to per. petual chastity. A fourt...

Indeed, I observed many little coquettish evideness of a desire on her par. to break the ice. With her weight she seemed calculated to break it if she felt like it. She was a blonde, with natural, ounry curls. She had generous dimples in her cheeks. Her feun sas ample. For one constructed on so large a plan her feet were small and they twinkled under her short but modest soirts with considerable fas cination. She were a red dress that moning, which did not lessen the general effect. II. I approached with ease and sang froid, but 'with the scareel'-eonceated consciousness of the power to conquer.

IMRI. AND :IRS. In earliertirmes an ordinary man was simply William or John; that is to say. he had merely a Christian name withon any kind of"handle" before it, or sur name after it. Some means of diatin --mngmiinshig one John or one William from another John or another William became necessary. Nicknames derived from a man's trade or his dwelling-pace, or from some personal peculiarity were tacked on to their Christian names, and plain John became John Smith. As yet there were no "nmieters " in the land. Some John Smith accumulated more wealth than the is ik of his fellows-be came, perhaps, a landed proprietor, or an employer of hired labour. Then he began to be called in the Normoar French, the "maistre" of this place or that, of these workmen or of those. In time the "amaistre," or "maister" as it soon be came, got tacked on before his name, and Ie became Maister Smith, and his wife was Maistress Smith. But gradually the sense of possession was lost sight, and the title was corn...
