ARE YOU AWARE That tbis is the orLT E".AuBLsIhID Looa. Pa?&r. News and Notes. CONCERT AT THE UNIVERSITY. A concert at the 'ilson Hall, University, served to introduce to the public a talerted young composer, and the first Bachelor of Music of the Melbourne Univers;ity. The gentleman we refer to is Mr. Arthur Chanter. Madame Diederman sung his song to Shakespeare's words "Take, Oh Take Those Lips Away" with fine ex pressive phrasing and feeling. Mr. Chanter is a trained teacher of the vocal art, pianoforte, and harmony. His teach ing room is No. Io,4th floor Rialto, where he is to be seen on Friday afternoons. OLD TI.IES-A memento of days gone by was presented to the Council last Mon day evening by ex-councillor HIardess.

THE GOLDEN TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
T..HE GOLDEN T'DE;C There is many a rest on the road of life, If we only"vould stop to take it; Aad many a t.ne from the better land, If the querelous heart would wake it. To the sunny soul that is full of hope Andiwhose beautiful trust never faileth, The grass is green and the flowers are brigl:t, Though the wintry storm prevaileth. Better to hope, though the clouds hang low, And to keep the eyes still lifted, For the sweet blue sky will soon peep through When the ominous skies are rifted. There never was night \ ithout a day, Nor an eveni:g without a motning ; And the darkest hour, the provezb goes, is tlhe:hour before the dawning. There is many a gem in the path of. life, Which we pass in our idle peasure, Which is richer tar than jewvellea crown, Or the riser's boarded treasure; It may be the love ofa IEttlre child, Or a mother's prayer to Heaven, Or only a beggar's grateiul thanks For a cup of water given. Better to weave in the web of litfe A bright and golden filling, And to ...

"IT'S WELL IT IS NO WORSE." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
"IT'S WEELL IT IS NO WORSE." After the Asmerican revolutionary war, George III. ordered a thanksgiving to be offere: up throughout the kingdom.

THE MISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
THE MIISTRESS. The best household mistress is that woman who has a practical knowledge oi household duties. A knowledge of cookery wil! enable her to point out to inefficient cooks the cause of mistake and failure; and she should not only know how things should look and taste when sent to table, but be able to judge of, and choose well, every kind of provision. It will not be easy for cooks to impose on a lady who knows exactly how much of every ingre dient is requisite fo, each dish, and who is able, to estimate the quantity of food rs quired daily for her household. It may not, under all circun:stances, be necessary for a lady to exercise her knowledge in these important matters; and if she has a cook who has'proved hersel trustworthy, she will do well to delegate large powers to her. But it is obvious that, to judge the skil! and honesty of her cook, the lady must possess the knowledge indicated. Nothing can be done to make domestic life better, until all women who take the condu...
A QUEER PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
A QCUEER PICTURE. Paul Veronese, like many other painters, was given to eccentric moods and odd habits. Onl one occasion he accepted the hospi tality of a family at their beautiful country villa. He assumedt great liberties during his visit, claiming absolute possession of his room, allowing not vcren a servant to enter. He would not sufier the maid to makne his bed, and the swrcpings of the room were left every morning outside the door for her to remove. 1Ie slipped away with out bidding the family good-bye. On elitering the room the servant found the sheets of the bed missing, andat once reported that the painter must havo stolen them. After careful search a roll was found in a corner, which proved to be a magnificent picture of "Alexander in the Tent of Darius." It was painted on the missing sheets of the bed, and the artist had chosen this curious way of recompensing his hosts for their generous hospitality.

Northern Oycling Olub. -4-- The above club held its first annual social in the To.va I-Il o:l : Wednesday evening, 3rd inst.

No pains had been spared o make the evening an enjoyable one, the stage being covered with tandems and bicycles nicely decorated by MIiss Madden, who deserves special praise for her efforts. The music was furnished by Robb's band, which renders praise un necessary, and the floor was in capital order. The catering of IMr. J. A.

A USEFUL EYE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
A USE-UL EYE, A good many years ago there was man employed in the office of the Princess's Theatre, who, for the conveni ence of this anecdote, may be called Brown. Brown had in an accident lost one eye, and wore in the place of it a glass one, which, naturally, he could at any moment take out or put in without in convenience. He used to ride about a great deal in cabs, and like other people objected to the cabman's whip oemgn ilicked in his face. On one occasion a big, red-faced, brandy-nosed ruffrian drove him from the City to Oxford Street. The man whipped his horse unmercifully, and the knotted lashend kept spinning and twirling across Brown's eye. Brown remonstrated, and was answered by vol leys of oaths. "I know my own busi ness," the scoundrel cried. "You keep your - seat, andkeep a civil tongue in your -jaw." Swish, swish, the whip went again, this time hitting Brown in the face. The latter, without further ado, took his glass eye from its socket, and set up a fiendish yell....
SLAVERY IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 12 October 1894
SLAVERY INK E.NGLANIe The tollowing proofs of s?.ve-hoiild.g in England during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are not generally known, and are interesting as showing how late this custom was retained. The "London Gazette" of March, 1685, con tains the fellowing: "A black boy of about a5 years ofage, named John White, ran away from Colonel Kirke the 15th instant;-he has a silver collar about his neck, upon which is the colonel's coat-of arms and cipher; he has upon his throat a great scar; bare in habit. Vhosoever brings theliaforementioned boy to Colonel Kirke's House near the Privy Garden, will be well rewarded.u In the fifth year of William and Mary's reign (1693) the Court of Common Pleas decided that a mnan might have property in a negro boy, because negroes are heathen. At Hamp etn Court we may see a bust of William III.'s favourite slave. The head is in white marble, and the drapery of yellow marble Round his neck is carved a collar with padlock, exactly similar to a...
