Charles speaks of nothing now but stocks and mining shares, and rates of discount, of rises and falls in the market of premiums, of shares that are above par, of those that are below par. He has become a frequenter of the verandah The wonderful plan he had conceived for getting rich, an infallible one he thought, was by his superior sharp ness and intelligence to get the better of all the bemused and bemuddled old brokers, who daily congregated in and about the entrance of the Hall of Commerce in Collins-street, and this he thought he would be able to do by always purchasing at a discount and selling at a premium. Poor old Mr. Grinnidge, had frowned portentously, then had opened his eyes in amazement when first he learned how Charles proposed building up a fortune Ada, always good. and kind, and trust ful, never thought of opposing her cous...

LITTLE EVA'S LOST BROTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

LITTLE IVA'S LOST BROTHER. During the long run of Uncle Tom in an Eastern city, the family of the gentle "Eva" went to housekeeping, and during the occupation of the elder forces, a small boy-brother of "Eva" (the "Eva" on this occasion being Miss Lulu Prior)-strayed away and was lost in that city. Moving was suspended and hunting was commenced, but the child was not found. Audiences must not be disappointed, however, and so the poor little sister was forced to array herself for her part, wash off the tears and try and forget that her little brother was lost. But during the evening the runaway was found, and the parents to relieve their little daughter's mind, took him directly to the theatre. The death scene of "Eva" was on; "Topsy," with her apron on her head, crouched on the floor. Seeing out of a corner the recovered youth, "Topsy" said in a whisper : Hold your Nebuchad nezzer up." "Eva" lay on the couch-" St. Clair" bent over her with the question. " What do you see 'Eva," darl...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. 19/9/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY COSMOPOLITE. 19 19178. Tam weather has now assumed an almost Summer appearance, and people are beginning to don light clothing, wear straw hats, and speculate whether to-morrow will be hotter than to-day, or the advisability of taking lodgings at Brighton or St. Kilda for the coming season. Football and hurling are giving place to cricket and bowls; moonlight trips on the Yarra instead of a visit to the theatre or concert are considered more preferable. Householders are having their habitations repainted and freshened up for Summer, andpainters and decorators are anticipating "a good time coming." The itinerant vendors of trifling comestibles are rousing up from their hibernation, and beginning to perambulate our streets, making the echoes ring with melodious (?) cries. "The winter of our discontent" is being superseded by the "glorious Summer," and ere long hot winds, dust storms, and the inadequate water supply will form some of the principal topics of conve...

THE ISLAND OF CYPRUS. MURRAY'S HANDBOOK FOR TRAVELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

T??E ISLAND OF OYPR US. Muawan's HANDBOOK foR TRAVELLERS. IN view of the importance attached to the new acquisition of Great Britain in the Mediterranean, we give a sketch of the Island of Cyprus from "Murray's Handbook for Travellers," which will be read with interest. Cyprus is the most eastern island of the Mediterranean and lies off the coast of Syria. It is 145 miles in length, extreme breadth 55 miles, and its minimum breadth 27 miles, having an area of 4,500 square miles-about the size of Jamaica, or nearly a third less than Yorkshire, and has now a population of 200,000. It has hitherto been but little visited by travellers, owing to the erroneous state ments regarding it. There is, however no reason why travellers should not visit this island with as great impunity as any other part of the Levant. The climate varies in different parts ; the northern region is the most hilly and wooded, and the least fertile, and the heat in that district is tempered by the winds from the Ka...

CHINESE FEMALE EDUCATION. LEISURE HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

CHINESE FEMALE EDUCATION. LEIBURE HOUR. CHINESE books for girls consist chiefly of exhortations to discharge all their duties, as daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and especially daughters-in-law. If you go into a Pekin bookshop to examine what books are devoted to female training, you will find a little volume called "N ii er ching," which describes the daily routine of a girl's life before and after marriage. A larger work is "The Girl's Four Books," in two volumes. This con tains the best results of Chinese think ing on how the female mind ought to be trained. The duties of daughter, wife, and mother are here explicitly laid down and illustrated by examples. The boys have their Four Books, which they read before the study of the Five Classics. These were fixed upon in the Sung dynasty, 700 years ago. A century of Mongol rule followed, when the family of Genghis Khan held the throne. Then came the Ming dynasty, which ruled for nearly three centuries. It was at this time that the...

CHAPTER XVIII. MR. MULLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

CHAPTER XVIII. MR. MULLOCK. " How is it that Charles has not yet asked Ada to marry him ?" thought Edith some months after this event. UHe first struggled for fame. but he failed to get it. Then he aspired for wealth, in a striving for which he has ruined both himself and his cousin. It seems to me that now he should be contented with the love and devotion that could be his.own as soon as be. likes to claim them." Poor Ada, she grew pale and changed -her once bright colour was gone. Her fresh fair beauty was fading fast away. Her cheek and hands were very thin. She was silent, made no com plaint, and asked for no sympathy. Charles, in reply to Edith's frequent remonstrances, urged his want of means lo;support a wife. Mr. Pipkins, after much deep re f ection, came to the conclusion that Charles was an unsolvable enigma, for thought he " When he had plenty of money he wouldn't marry her, and now that he has none, he won't have her, and yet he persists in saying he loves -her dearly." ...

CHAPTER XVII. DEVOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

CHAPTER XVII. DEVOTION. The letter dropped from the hands of Ada, who fell fainting into Edith's arms. "Ruined !" said Mr.Pipkins. " Why he hasn't had the time to spend his money !" "Serve him right," thought Edith, but she didn't give expression to her thoughts because of her love for her friend. Ada, coming to herself, exclaimed "Oh ! dear, oh ! dear, he intends to kill himself. He says in his letter that he will never see me again, that he bids me good-bye for ever. I cannot let himt die for want of a little money. All that I have, is it not his ? Does Charles doubt my affection for him ? At all risks I must save him! Edith, dear ! quick ! give me my bonnet and shawl, and get on yours. Mr. Pipkins, please come with us. Oh ! do, pray, be quick ! We must hasten to Charles's lodgings !"

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, SEPT. 21, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vinit. SATURDAY, SEPT. 21, 1878. WE have during the last few weeks, in articles culled from various English and other sources, called our readers atten tion to the acquirement by the mother country of the Island of Cyprus, and the assumption of the protectorate of Asia Minor, by the terms of the Anglo Turkish Convention. The convention as it is well known has been the out come of the Treaty of Berlin. To Russia, as the Victor in the late war. it could not well be denied to allow her to somewhat aggrandize herself. This has been done in the retrocession of Bessarabia in Europe, and the extension of her Armenian frontier in Asia, so as to allow her to acquire Batoum on the Black Sea, the far famed Kars, and Ardahan. Although the British Government were certainly averse, to this advance of Russia in Asia, it cer tainly felt it could not in the congress resist Russia in the matte~' without most probably provoking further hos tilities, and entering up...
