SLUMBERS IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
SLUMBERS IN CHURCH. A WORTHY clergyman in the west of Scot land was regularly annoyed in the forenoon service by a sleepy carrier. In the course of visiting, Saunders was remonstrated with for his drowsiness, and pleaded as an excuse heavy'work and porridge for breakfast. His clerical guide advised tea, but to this Saunders demurred, as tea " wouldn't lie on his stomach." It happened one very warm day that his reverence felt sorely annoyed at the hearly snore of Saunders, who sat in the gallery. Stopping suddenly in the middle of his sermon, the rev. gentle man, Who knew every member of the con. gregation, called out to some one to wakei Saundere. This having been done, to the bowilderment c? thu sleeper, he was thus addressed : "Saunders, thli -ill never do. Yc maun either no come to the kirk in the forenoon, or tal' a tea breakfast." - -,

Traveller. Mid-Winter in California. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
Eraeltlirt. Mid-Winter in Califoranit Before the middle of December of thill present winter new potatoos were in the market, and there hans been an abundance of them ever since. The new potato, about as large as a henu's egg and tapering off to the size of a pigeon's egg, goes quick in the market, not because it is very good, but because it is new. In its half-grown state it is a crude vegetable, about as heavy as a leaden bullet and a little more digestible; but then it is now and its crudeness is excused. At about the ad vent of new potatoes the new crop of peas came in and are now abundant in the markets. hi several places in Alameda County almond trees are now in blossomt. They are not forcing the season, but the season is forcing the buds. , The almonds ought to have held back until Febriulsy, but these warm days have brought the fruit buds forward nearly three weeks in advance of the usual time. The almonds are bursting their buds in all warmns and sheltered places ; cherry bu...
IN THE DENTIST'S CHAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
IN TIIE DENTIST'S CHAIR. .IT" AVING a tooth extracted is a moman. tons event in a man's life. It is a sharp, acute pain, to be sure; yet, after all, it is rarely more than an instant in dura tion. It is gone so quickly that when it is last we wonder why we should have dreaded it so intensely. Perhaps there is no pain of which we have such a horror as that nacompanying a drawn tooth. The moment a man starts for the dentist this horror seizes upon him. It intensiliesas he reaches the dentistry. It grows so rapidly, and reaches such colossal proportions by the time lie arrives in front of the offices as to entirely.engulf the ache of the tooth. This causes him to stop and wonder if, after all, it ie necessary to have it pulled. He stops and speculates. He slowly mounts the stairs, reaches the door, and is about to enter. Then lie suddenly retraces his way and goes walking round another street to obtain a back view of the building. Then he returns, preceded by the ache, and goes up the ...

T'ICIlKED I SrvtlMrAL years ago, when a landscape painter was lmakinlg a very beautiful sunset picture, lie had one evening just succeeded in fixing his canvas iwhere he could catch the Inst fiery glow--a peculiarly gorgeous one-to a nicety, when a well-dressed man canme somewhat hastily around the bend of the road, and, and, seeig the artist, paused to inquire if he had noticed a gentlenman attired in a suit of rough grey tweed pass that way within the last Ihalf-htour. The arti-t replied that since his arrival no one had passed the spot. Whereupon the new comner brielly explained that he was in quest of a gentlemtan who wias a lunatic, and had, througih exceeding cleverness, given him the slip that morning. The keeper further remarked that his patient was to all appearances as sane ais himself. Indeed, he said, strangers had frequently held long conversations with hint without discovering that he was utll'ering from any mental atlliction. Just at tlat moment; however, approach ing...

NO VACANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
NO VACANCY. ITis not true that ." the tailor makes the gentleman," but it is true that a gentleman cannot safely neglect the tailor's services if he wishes people in general to take him for what he is. A gentleman prominent in Canadian political life was somewhat too careless in this respect. This statesman was once on his way to call upon a friend in Quebec, and stopped an Irishman in the street to inquire the way. " Can you tell me where Mr. Hunter lives '" he asked. "It's no use your going there," nas the unexpected reply. " But do you know where he lives ." "Faith and I do. Butit's no use going there." The inquirer began to get angry. "I didn't ask your advice. I simply want to know where Mr. Hunter lives. "Oh, well, he lives down that street y?nder-the first house round the corner; butI tell you it's no use your going there, for I've just been there myself, and ho's already got a man." Mr. Hunter had advertised for a ser vant the day before. The statesman, so the story goes, we...

As it is a matter of no importance to this interesting recital we will imagine that the clothes were Mbi ovn. .liss Podgers had never before seen this gentleman, nor had he met her at any pre vious time; therefore they were strangers.

sho Discovered Gunpowder? When it is considered what an important part gunpowder has played in the wars of the world, and in tlhe arts inl times of peace, it is not a little remarkable that the dis covery is a matter of considerable uncer tainty: It has been the custom to ascribe its invention to Uertholdus or Michael Schwartze r'uordelier monk, of Goslar,south of Bllrnswirr, in Germany. About theyear 1320. It tins been maintained by many writers, hoowever,that gunpolwder was known much earlier in various parts of the world.

HER EVENING OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
HER EVENING OUT. WHXEN Mr. Jones wenthome to supper the other evening, Mrs. Jones had not returned from a shopping expedition. This was so unusual that he felt uneasy. But when the entire evening had passed, and sheo was still absent, he became greatly alarmed. In his own mind, he had informed the police and the Mayor, and asked to have the river dragged. When Mrs. Jones came home, s)he was flushed and radient, and her eyes shone like stars. "Oh," she said, sinking into an easy. chair and sticking her feet out straigiht before her, " I've had such a good time." " Maria," asked Mr. Jones, sternly, " where have you been?" "Been out with the girls, and I' have come home sober, which is more than can be said of some folks I know." "Maria, this is no time for trifling. Tell me at once where you have been, or I shall take measures to find out for myself." "Mercy me, don't look so cross, Jeptha. I went shopping with cousin Kate, and she insisted on my going home to tea with her. Then we bo...
THE ECCENTRICITIES OF GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
THE ECUENTRICITIES OF GREAT S MEN. -UETONIUS said that, during the winter, Augustus would wear four tunics beneath a thick toga ; to these were added ashirt and a woollen under-garment; his limnh also were as, carefully protected. In summer he would sleep with both doors and windows open, and frequently under the peristylo of his palace, where jets of fresh water refreshed the air, and where, more. over, was posted a slave whose dt..y it was to fan him. He could not endure the sun not even the winter son-and he never walked abroad without a broad-brimmed bat on his head. Ferdinand II., Grand Duke of Tuscany, who died in 1670, says the Abbf Arnauld, in his " Memoir " was the slave of his health. Ihave frequently seen him pacing up and down his room between two large ther. mometers, upon which he would keep his eye constantly fixed, unceasingly employed in taking off and putting on a variety of scull-caps of different degrees of warmth, of which he had always five or six in hand, acco...

TRUTH OR FALSEHOOD? [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 15 June 1894
TRUTH Ott FALSEHOODt As some gentlemen were hunting lately in the East Riding they started a hare, which, after running at considerable time, stopped to breathe, at the very moment a poor old man was passing with a bag of turnips which he had got in an adjoining field. He caught puss, whipped her into the bag with the turnips, and slung it over his slhoulder. The gentlemen presently cominsg up, asked him if he had seen any thing of the hare. " Yes," said the old man, pointing over his shoulder, " she's gone over amongst these turnips."

ONE NIGHT'S TRAGEDY, cT sas a cold night out; the skyglittered , with frozen stars, the snow under foot crunched and creaked; the very air was full of splintered ice; people shivered hurrying by, and even the stately woman in the heated room of a marble-front mansion shivered. but not with the cold. She rose and moved restleosly around the room, finally coming to t stand before a cheval mirror. With bhands clasped behind her she stood looking at her self. She noted the perfe. .olds of her clinging gown, the haughty angle of her head. She Bame to the eyes and gazed fiercely into their mysterious depths. The eyes in the mirror gazed back as defiantly, and hers fell; then her full lips curled. "Afraid of yourself, afraid," and she menaced the figure looking at her. " What has come over you, Mrs. De Vere, "queen of society,' ' fashionable leader of the select circle.' Bah l" and she turned quickly away and began pacing up and down the room again. That there was a conflict going on in he...
