A BATH-ROOM MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893

A BATH-ROOM MYSTERY. Not long ago there was great excite- . ment on board one of the large passenger steamers coming from the east. Day after day it was noticed that the bath room door was locked for an hour or more. At first the passengers thought it was merely that someone had taken an extra time over the bath. and had left the .: room so quietly as not to be heard. When days passed by, and the bath-room door ? was still safely locked at the same time, one of the passengers complained to the captain of the ship.. : "Send for me the next time it happens," -: he replied. Accordingly the following morning, I; when the door \ais tried in vain, the captain was summioned, as he desired. "" He made his way to the bath-room, fol lowed closely by a little crowd ot ladies. and gentlemen, all very anxious to see ' what was the bath-room mystery, " Open the door at once," said he, in i, his most authoritative voice. No answer. Yet there was a slight noise on the other side, which told that so...

QUEEN OF HEARTS, OR Love's Devotion. (ALL Rights Reserved.) BY MRS G. SHELDON. CHAPTER III. '"CLIFTON SECURES A POSITION. Clifton Vising \vent out from the home of his old nurse with a strange conflict of emotions within his breast. The adventures of the previous, night had made a deep impression on his mind. It seemed a strange combination of circum stances which had conspired to make him instrumental in saving the life of this young and beautiful girl. Had he been five minutes later in mak ing his appearance in Houston-street, that precious life would doubtless have been sacrificed, that lovely form would now be lifeless and floating upon the turbid waters of the East Biver.

The Marquis's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893

The Marquis's Revenge. It was a stormy October evening ini'the year 1780. All the day long the wind -ad been moaning and rushing through the great woods that surrounded the Ch&teau: de Vallonni?re, and now, as the murky twilight clouded in, the storm grew wilder, and gusty showers of rain began to fall. How the wind shrieked and wailed as it tore through the forest, shaking and scattering the yellow leaves that had decked the boughs so gallantly in the green beauty of summer 1 How the great branches rocked and groaned in the struggle with the mighty Destroyer ! The air was full of noise and tumult, and when the storm lulled for a moment; as if to gather strength for greater efforts, a deep, tremulous sound-more felt than heard filled up the waiting silence with' a dull heavy roar. It was the voice and cry of the great Atlantic, as it broke far offupon the lonely coast. "It is a devil of a night 1" said Mon sieur le Marquis. He might be qualified to judge, certainly ; both he...

MARK TWAIN'S INDIAN FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 8 July 1893

]MARK TWAIN'S INDIAN FIGHT. It was nearly twenty years ago when Dan DeQuille and Mark Twain attempted to start a paper in Mendocino county. They took the type and material of their recently de funct newspaper establishment in San Fran cisco, and loading the stuff on a big waggon, struck out into the country to retrieve their fortunes. They packed their type just as it stood in the formes, tied up the articles with stout cords by, a process well-known to printers, and packing them closely in boxes, vowed to establish a newspaper somewhere which would be the leading exponent of politics and historyfor the Pacific coast. Had not an unfortunate circumstance taken place it is quite evident that the same newspaper which they contemplated founding would have been alive to-day. Their journey over the mountains was utterly uneventful until they reached Simpson's station, a spot well known to old travellers on that route. Here they met a party of emigrants making for Lower California and the ...
