YANKEE YARNS. WAITED FOR AN ANSWER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893
YANKEE YARNS. t, WAITED FOP. AN ANSWER. There was a loud ring at Mrsi Blank's door-bell one evening last week. The one domestic had gone up to her room but came down and opened the door. It was a messenger boy, and he brought a note to Mrs. Blank. "Tell him to wait until I see if there is any answer," said Mrs Blank over the balus ter. The girl handed the note to her mistress and went to her room in the back part of the house, leaving the lady to answer the note and dismiss the boy. The note was from Mr. Blank. It ran thus: DARLING (they were recentlymarried)--A customer of the house is in the city and has asked me to go to the theatre with him. I will not be home till late, but do not sit up or feel uneasy. Hurriedly. YOUR OWN T031. Mrs. Blank sat a long time with the note in her hand, trying to analyze her feelings. She was disappointad, lonely., a trifle jeal ous, and somewhat distrustful. This mix ture of emotions made her forgetful. She feared it was the beginning of the end. i...
OAKLANDS HUNT CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893
OAKLANDS HUNT CLUB. (BY RED ( OAT). The Oakland hounds met at no ,n on Wednesday 28th June, at Keilor, to hunt game. S.,on after the appointed time, the master, Mr ýM['Dou':Lll, led the way to Imlessrs Taylors' paddocks. where we quickly found a hare. The hounds ran it very fast for about three miles, when we sighted the quarry dodging along almhost done; and just when we were.expecting to run into it, a fearful squall of wind and ramin came on, which completely destroyed all scent, and we were done out of a well dIeserved kill. Crossing into Mr Bodels paddock over a bare wire fence and a fair stone wall, we son got going again, ,nd away - we raced, over fine galloping country, with an occasional stone wall, to the railway line. Crossing the line, we jumped a stone wall, and right on to, the S:iltwater rivecr, and the hare turning sharp back, we had a road with a wire fence on each side to cross. DMr Brannigan got away from us all there, his horse, Milkman, following him like a dog....

FUN AND FANCY. The man who dyes his hairnever succeeds in "keeping it dark." Everybody sees through i" ~ Bare faced i~bberies are generanly commit. ted by masked men. "I tell yez, Biddy," said Micky Dolan, of Limerick, as he sat down to his supper, " it is not fer me to be oncharitable to me feller men, but when Dennis O'Brien, wid his wood leg, takes to carryin' a walking stick besides, it looks too much shtoyle and ex travagance, so it do." Hunker : " Hallo, Rickets, when is your marriage to Miss Annie Warburton coming off." Rickets: "It has been indefinitely post poned." "What's the trouble ?" " Oh, I have to wait till her husband is dead.

AN EPISCOPAL WIG. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893
AN EPISCOPAL WIG. The first episcopal effort put forth by Bishop Blomfield was an attempt to persuade the King to dispense with wigs on the heads of bishops. But George IV. was conserva tive, and would not permit the discontinu ance of the episcopal wig, and, in fact, it was not dispensed with until the reign of William IV., when the abolition of the troublesome clerical environment was brought about by Sir George Sinclair, the intimate friend of William IV. Sir George was stay ing with the King on a visit to Brighton, when he went up to Fulham Palace to visit Doctor Blomfield after his elevation to the bishopric of London. Ile a ked thei Bishop whether he could deliver any message from him to the King. The Bishop jocularly re plied, "You may present my duty to his Majesty, and say at this tropical season I find my episcopal wig a serious encumbrance, and I could wish that he would not consider me guilty of a breach of Court-etiquette if induced to lay it aside." Sir George re peate...
The Sunbury News. Be Just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY. JULY 8, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893
Be Just a'nd Fear not. SUNBURY,-SATUR DAY. JULY 8, 1893. THE new Sunbury Asylum buildings, on the brow of the hill, are now stand ing out prominently, and are being remarked by visitors as well as per manent residents for their picturesque ness and ornamentation. The position they occupy is elevated, healthy, and conspicuous. Messrs. Cockram and Co., the contractors, who deserve con gratulations, so far, for their masterly work, contemplate completion in a few months, and the buildings will very shortly afterwards be fit for occupancy. Every provision is being made for the comfort of patients, and thel conveaienee ofofficials, and when finished they should compare favourably with any such public buildings in the colony. The building at the renr of the hill, known as "the Criminal Wards," is finished, of course, some time, and Mr O'Meara will, in a very short period, finish the fencing. This edifice was originally intonded for criminal patients, hence the appellation "Cl:iminal ?.ard...
GLOVES FROM HUMAN SKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893
GLOVES FROM HUMAN SKIN. When a man is said to step into a dead man's shoes, that is a figurative way of putting the fact that he has taken another man's place or married another man's wife. This saying is likely to lose its figurative character soon, for a great physician is re ported to be the possessor of a pair of slippers made from the human skin. Besides slippers, this same physician has several pairs of gloves made from the same material; indeed, the tanning of human skin for this purpose, he says, is extensively carried on in France and Switzland. The best glovos are made from the skin on the breast and the skin of children. Just as the skin of a kid is superior for gloves to the skin of the goat, so the skin of the child, being softer and more pliable, is superior to the skin of an adult. If all this be true, we are not so very far removed from the Red Indian who adorns t himself with human scalps. The only difference is we wear the human ornamenton our hands; he wears it su...

ADVENTURE WITH ELEPHANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893
ADVENTURE WITH ELE PHANTS. d While on a hunting expedition in Africa a] with my black servant, Jumbo, I found my self in a complete labyrinth of shrubs, plants and creepers, out of which I should have never extricated myself cxcept for the assist ance of Jumbo who expressed with great con fidence his knowledge of our whereabouts. Suddenly he stopped and touched me on the arm making a significant gesture to be silent, and listening I heard a loud flappingnoise as if some machinery were at work. Rising from my cover I observed a high brown back look ing like a vast mound among the foliage. It soon began to move, and the head and ears of an enormous elephant appeared. It seemed to me the creature was looking straight at us. A noise on my left side caused me to look in that direction and there I saw another huge head with a trunk lifted above it. Had I been an experienced hunter I would have known how to act, and being afraid to ask advice lest the sound of voices might arouse the curio...
