A man may ,.be homely, and still be popular. Whiskers coveri tip the rmost of his face, and if he has got a large mouth, nobody mistrusts at, nd if he has wrinkles on hise fore head, his friends speak of his many cares a;id of his thoughtful disposition, and tell each :other that his wrinkles 'are lines of thought. -Lines of thought indeed Irin all probability, hris forehead is +wrinkled by the habit 1e hra of sci:owling at his wife when the. coffee Is't trong enough; A woman must always be in good order throughout. -Her hair must be frizzed and hanged as fashion demands, and she must manage to looksweet, no matter how sour she nmay feel; and her laces maust bhalwiys spotless, and her boot bittons all in place; and her finger naials clea; a nd she.mustn' twhistle; nor climb fences or stone cats, or swear whe...

MELBOURNE. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 23 November 1882

MELBOURNE: -4-----' (rloo oUa owne ConnSroomrr.) Wednesday. The first match of the all England Eleven against a Victoirian Eleven was commenced onlFriday, resulting in a three days match, which. was finished on Monday afternoon. Timhe English in their first innings ran up a score of 273 with some very brilliant play, and the Victorians, orestfallen doubtless by the big odds against them, only succeeded in putting together 104 in their first innings, when they again went to the wickets. A good deal of fear was ex pressed that the Victorians would be beaten in one innings, but this our men just managed to avoid, mnaking 273 in bothinnings with two wickets to fall. An extraordinary charge was mado in the Central Oriminal Court, on Saturday, against a young womnan em ployed as head seamstress in the Mutual Stose, of having stolen goods from the establishmont to the value of about £50. The charge was a most unfounded one, and considerable sym. pathy was expressed in courbt for tho prison...

OOMMENTS ON EVENTS. "The birds whose music fills the air, Do chirp and chattor hoodlessly."' -ANON. I heard a rather good story the other day. Some young swells called on a jovial old widower 'who resides near the metropolis and does not forgot that he was young himself once, as evinced by the fact of the partiality he displays for the company of some of the gay young swells of the period., Being a widower, his, daughter is frequently called upon to do the honors of the house which she did in proper style on this occasion, Some three or four young gentlemen called oatoensibly,on. Miss----, but in, reality to. have." a quiet wino", with' thoeold:gent, who as usual inimediately'ordered the decanter and glasses. "Pardon me, Papa," said the young lady,.. ".these gentlemen are my guests, is that not so i aind I never soet anything stronger than lemonade before my friends."

MR. M'LEAN ON THE LAND ACT AMENDMENT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 30 November 1882

MR. M?'LEAN ON THE LAND ACT AMENDMENT BILL. Mr. M?Lean said that he quite agreed w..ith those hon. members who had re ferred to the importance of this measure, for it was the most important that could engage the attention of the Legislature. He thought that in dealing with any question of this nature they should not treat it in a party spirit, or use it for - strengthening or weakening the position of a Government It should be treated solely in the'interest of that aggregation of parties which constituted the popu lation of the colony. If they were pro pared to deal with it in that spirit, then the best way to give effect to their views would be to read the bill a so cond time, on the understanding that the Government should allow every reasonable latitude in committee to amehd the bill in the best way the col lective experience of the committee could suggest. He would content him self at present with a brief review of the most salient features of the bill. The first and most import...

SUNRISE ON THE SEA. In the early morn we stand On a hill close by the sea, And the waves break on the strand With a murmur soft and free. .The glad birds around us sing Their sweet songs before employ, Till the brakes and woodlands ring " With their melodies of joy. The sun's bright and golden beam All at once lights up the sky, Till the objects round us seem Of a brilliant rosy dye. And across the ocean's breast, He doth cast a flashing mray, Till each foaming billow s crest, Blushing, bows to the Orb of Day. FLilenun.
