MARK TWAIN'S INDIAN FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 October 1894
:- MARK TWAIN'S INDIAN SFIGHT. It was nearly twenty years ago when IDan DeQuille and Mark Twain attemated to start a paper in Mendoeino county. They tookl the type and material of their recently de funct newspaper establishment in San Fran cisco, andloading 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 circumnstance taken place it is quite evident that the same newsp.per which they contemplated founding would hnave been alive to-day. Their journey over the mountains Was utterly uneventful until they reached Smpson's station, a spot well known to old travellers on that route. Here they met a party of emigrants making for Lower California and ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 October 1894
t'HE story of the nineteenth century has yet to be written, and when some future Hallam or Macaulay unfolds its page, thle hundred years now al most expired, will present a history without parallel in the annals of the world. Ushered in with wars and revolutions, there are now portentous signs that the century will die in the same sanguinary manner as attended its birth. The close of the?h?sb+ntl centuy--w-rnessed -the .American ant. French revolutions. The Irish rebel lion followed fast, and 'apolean came like a meteor on the horizon of Europe. For fifteen years he was the arbiter of the Old World, and this century was baptised in the blood of the millions who were slain to uphold or destroy his power. Since his fall the civilized world has witnessed the most gigantic wars of ancient or modern times. Polan. was snufifd out, Russia and Turkey continued their life and death strugole, France and Austria came to blows, the civil war in Amer ica desolated that land, Prussia and Austria ...

BANQUET.-We are requested to an nounce that, in deference to the wishes of Mr. G. M. Prendergast, the .proposed banquet to him will not take place. A GooD PRECEDENT.-- During the hearing of a case in court last Monday it was noticed that the chair in which Cr. Barwise had been sitting was unoccupied and the gentleman himself was seen standing at the end of the magisterial platform taking no part in the proceed ings, he being a relative of one of the litigants. Such conduct is worth record ing, as the average man usually avails himself of the advantage which such a position gives.

LAND OF THE AFTERNOON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 October 1894
LANND OF THE AFTERNOON. I know a wondrous land of pearl And pink and golden gleam, Above whose battlements of cloud Broad crimson banners stream. Beyond the azure depths of noon, Far down the west it lies, Its gate, the setting sun, is cleft Through saffron-coloured skies. Its seas are floods of amber light, Where stately cloud-ships sail, And violet mists, its silvery domes And palace walls enveil. Athwart the dewy shadows, that Forever eastward creep, The long-wingecd swallows silent'y In mazy circles sweep. It is the realm of finished toil To weary hands a boon And 'twixt the day and twili~ght. lies This Land of the Afternoon. Mollie Corwin, of Shelbyville, Indiana, has just married her nint'.h husband, called Cu sack; six of her former ones are still alive. It takes nine tailors to make a man, but now this woman requires nine husbands before she is suit-ed. An Esquimaux young lady, Miss Olaf Krarer, is coming for-ward as a public lec turer. She stands only 40 inches high. She is...
RIVALS IN THE ORGAN-LOFT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 October 1894
RIVALS IN THE ORGAN-LOFT. The Dirr:i;tnhamn Gazette recently gave an account of a disgraceful scene which took place in a Wesli.yan IMethodist chapel in one of the Black Country circuits one Sunday morning. It appeared that for some time previous there had been a dispute with the organist of the chapel and the choir, and one Sunday morning a new choirmaster, appointed by the trustees of the chapel, was present to conduct the singing. For twenty minutes before the beginning of the service there was wrangling between these officials as to who should give out the hymns and tunes; and, notwithstanding the intervention of the preacher and others, neither would yield. The dispute was prolonged for a querter of an hour after the time for opening the service. The preacher then went into the pulpit, and gave out the first hymn. The strains of the organ were heard; but after two lines had been played they suddenly ceased, as the choirmaster was preventing the boy from blowing. Thereupon the o...
BEAUTIFUL SNOW! [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 October 1894
-DBEAUTIFUL.. 8N I .O Oh ! the snow, the beautiful snow I Filling the sky and earth below; Over the housetops, over the street, Over the heads of the people you meet. Dancing, flirting, skimming along Beautiful snow ! it can do nothing wrong. Flying to kiss a fair lady's cheek Clinging to lips in a frolicsome freak; Beautiful snow, from the heavens above, Pure as an angel, gentle as love. Oh ! the snow, the beautiful snow I How the flakes gather and laugh as they go Whirling about in their maddening fun; It plays in its g!ee with every one. Chasing, laughing, hurrying by, It lights on the fece end sparkles the eys; And the dogs, wit- a bark and a bound, Snap at the crystale that eddy around. The town is alive, anud it's heart's in a glow, To welcome the coming of the beautiful snow. How wildly the crowd goes swaying along, Hailing each other with humour and song I How the gay sledges like meteors flash by, Bright for a moment, then lost to the eye Ringing, swinging, dash'ing they go...
