News and Notes. Too Muca ENTERPnISE.-The ax mayor wanted to know at the Council meeting whether the members were aware of the conduct of Mr. Grigg, of Errol-street, in taking up the kerb atone, and making a roadway across the path.

PECK'S INITIATION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
PECK'S INITIATION. "Say, are you a Mason, or a Nodfellow, or anything 1" asked the bad boy of the grocery man, as he went to the cinnamon bag on the ohelf and took out a long stick of cinnamon bark to chew. "Why, yes, of course I am; but what set you to thinking of that,'' asked the grocery man, as he went to the desk and charged the boyea father with half a pound of cin namon. "Well, do the goats butt when yon nishiate a fresh candidate I" "No, of course not. The goats are cheap ones, that have no life, and we muzzle them, and put pillows over their heads, so they can't hurt anybody," says the grocery man, as he winked at a brother Oddfellow who was seated on a sugar-barrel, looking mysterious. "But why do you ask 1" " O, nothin', only I wish me andmy chum had muzzled our goat with a pillow. Pa would have enjoyed his becoming a member of our lodge better. You see, pa had been telling us how much good the Masons and Oddfellows did, and said we ought to try and grow up good so we cou...

AN ARTIST. "Cani you.draw at all, .yong man ?'(asked. Uncle Raphael of an appiieanta for private instruction. "O, yes, consoiersn e," replicd the candidate. "At ten 'ears ef age I could draw beer, cider, or a sled up a hill; at twelve, a truck loaded with cabbage; at f?teen, a prize in a lo:tery; at seventecn, an inference; and at twenty, a bill of exchange. If I were an actor, I reckon I could draw the largest kind of a house; but I'm going to be a tracher, and shall have to he content with drawing a salary, the bigger the better." " Well, you may draw up a chair and sit down," said Uhncle Raphael, "you'll do for . beinmnec."

ENJOYING THE AGONY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
ENJOYING THE AGONY. They sat anxiously await-ng the rise of the curtain. The play was one of these melo-dramas that cause the hair to stand straight up and stay there. Finally the music died away and the curtain rolled softly and smoothly up. The stage showed a winter scene-a woman dying in a snow-drift. "Oh,this is terrible!" sighed the young .iadyv? " It is warmeron the stage than 'tis here." said the young man; "and at the present moment the supers are arranging a summer scene on the back of the stage, with beautiful paper roses ioriing out of shaggy door mats painted green to luok like grass1" " But she seems to be starving." "She isn't though. That actress lives in grand style; one can see she is stout and suffering from indigestion. She isn't hungry, and if she is, she can send for champagne and sandwiches between the acts." " I can't help feeling sorryfor the pour woman lost in the snow." "That's notsnowjoh, no, nothingofthe sort, it's paper. The mar wh6 is above conducting t...
CLEM, THE OUTLAW. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
- ifLr, TEs otr.Aw. - -7? ipople of the Bald Knob neigh :horhood on the Missouri Pacific Rail wty, couldn't understand why Clem Holder should go wrong. His people were surely bonest, and certainly did everything that lay within the range of their ability to give the boy a start in life, stibe went wrong. But not in the tire some, everyday manner, mind you. He didn't steal a horse, and thereby invite the contempt of the neighbourhood ; hedidnot commit an offence so com monplace and so free from exposure that a man of ordinary nerve would have contemplated it without alarm. No, he jumped on a pay car, robbed the paymas ter and killed a meddiesome fellow who ventured to protest, or offer advice, or something of that sort. What a handsome fellow Clem was I He was strong and of rather good size, but his features were as delicate and as refined as a girl's. His eyes were of that peculiar blue that bespeak innocence or deviltry, you can never determine which. The Missouri Pacific Railway C...
TWO TYPICAL CASES OF HYSTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
TWO TYPICAL CASES OF HYSTERIA. A short time ago, in the out-patient department of a large -hospital, two quietly-dressed ladies stood anxiously awaiting their turn to enter the doctor's room with a poor woman wrapped in blankets, whom they had brought in an invalid chair and ambulance, with the greatest difficulty, from home. When the doctor saw them, he ascertained that the poor creature had suffered for years from a diseased spine, and for the last two years had been entirely supported and nursed by the two ladies, who, not being rich themselves, had at last found the burden more than they could bear, and had, as the last resource, brought her to the hospital, in the hope it would provide a bed for her for the remainder of her life. The patient was a respectable looking person about forty-five, with a placid, well-fed appearance, but emitting the most agonising cries whenever an attempt was made to move her. The ladies were thereupon asked fo withdraw and wait, and the back was ca...
PREFERENCES AND TREASURES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
PREFERENCES AND TREASURES. I'd rather drink cold water from the brook, Than quaff excitement from s gciden cha lice; I'd rather sleep on straw in shepherd's hut, Than lie awake and restless in n palseo. I'd rather earn dry bread in lusty health, And eat it with a sense of wholesome plea sure, Than feed without the zest of appetite Off gorgeous plate and unavailing treasure. I'd rather have one true unfailing friend, Than fifty parasites to crave my bounty; And one poor lass who loved me for myself, Than one without-a heart who owned a county. Nature is kind if our desires are pure, And strews rich blessings everywhere arcund uls; While fortune, if we pant in he. pursuit, Too often grants her favours to confound us. Fresh air and sunshine, flowers, and health, and love-.. -'Tese are endowments if we learn to prize them; - The wise man'e treasures better worth fhan gold, And none but fools and wicked men dcspise them. -Cl-ohamber's Jouroe.L
THE VEGETABLE FLY OF THE WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
THE VEGETABLE FLY OF THE WEST INDIES. One of the most curious natural pro ductions of the Vest Indies is the famed vegetable fly,an insect about the size and colour of a drone bee, but- without wmngs. In the mcth of May it buries itselfin the earth and begins to vegetate. By the beginning of June a sprout has issued from the creature's back and made its appearanca above the surface of the ground. By the end of July.the tiny tree (known on the island as the fy-tree) has attained its full size being thin about three inches high, but a perfec: tree in every particu lar, much resembling a delicate coral branch. -Pods appear on ihs branches as soon as-it a-rives at its full growth These ripen and drop off i August. Instead ol containing !eeds, as one wotild naturally suppose, these pods have from three to ?ix smell, hard worms in the interior
FICTION AND FACT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 26 October 1894
FICTION AND FACT. There is rarely a circumstance or char. acter invented by the imagination that does not find its parallel in real life. A year cr more-ago, a writer described in a story the adventures, and vicissitudes of an erring lad who ran away from home to follow the sea. The tale was pure fiction, and the author invented for his young sailor, a name unlike any he had trerheard, Soon after the story was published, its author received a pathetic letter from a sorrowing mother, saying the sailor boy in the-story was heronly son, and beg ging forhis address; "Tell him, she wrote, " if he will only come home I will forget and forgive all the past. I am alone in the world, and if my dear son will but return to me I will be happy again" It was hard to write to this poor moth er that the sailor boy of the story, whose name, adventures, and life, so closely resembled herson's was but im agination. - "While addressing a jury in a crimin al case a few years ago,"- said a lawyer, " I ma...
