A ROYAL QUEEN OF HEARTS, OR Love's Devotion. CHAPTER VII.—(CONTINUED). [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 22 July 1893

QUEEN OF HEARTS, OR *. Love's Devotion. By MRS G. SHELDON. CHAPTER VII.-(CONTINUED). Clifton called the next afternoon, after his duties were over, to enquire regarding Shirley's condition. He found her sitting up and looking very 's'eet and lovely, in a pretty blue wrapper, although she was quite pale, for her burns were still very painful. She flushed rosily, however, when Abby announced Clifton, for she could not forget his impassioned words of the previous evening. " I cannot rise," she smilingly said, as she held .out her hand to him. " But I know you will excuse me under the cir cumetances " "I am sure you do not need to make any excuses," he returned, with a tender glance, while he clasped her hand in away that brought a deeper colour to her cheeks. "And," he added, "I cannot for give myself for not insisting upon your leaving the steamer long before you did." -'L. 3 not have gone a moment earlier," Shirley replied, "for if I had, and anything had happened to one of those dea...

PROFIT IN CAPONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 22 July 1893

PROFIT IN CAPONS. The claims male for the more rapid crowth of capons than of cockerels hardly seem sabstan'iated in the birds which I have examined. Capons and cockerels of the same brood at seven or eight months of age were about of equal weight, the c ckerals, if there was any difference, being the heavier. Were these birds to be kept for a few months longer it is possible that the capons woald have outgrown the cockerels. iu', despite this failure to make more gr ,wth a! an early age, there still seems to be some advantage in caponising the male - irnls They become less pugnacious than those ,t operated upon ; they remain " soft," ttat is, in a chicken-like condition of flesh, much longer; and in time they do take on more weight and fatten more easily. The op-ra tion is easily learned and quickly perform, d, and is not accompanied with mucei prin. The loss of birds from the opera'i n. when properly performed, is very slight, and the birds which die are really not lost, as they b...

The writer remembers, during one of his voyages across the Atlantic, one tempostuous night, when the wind and sea. e ee,,cd L.. howl a funeral dirge, a seaman directed his atten tion to a shark which appeared in the "rniidst of the heaving billows. He recognised its presence by the phiosplur: t n. e, " the flask of golden fire," that glinted h ::le his shining scales. lie seemed to lust for a victim. He moved with a swiftness of motion that out stripped our vessel, and with a snap of his powerful jaws he could have cut a man in two. A story is related of the ship " Karnak," that as she was leaving the port of Nassau some years ago, a piiut fell overboard from his boat, in which lie .-wan being towed. The ship was stopped, and the boat instantly left for his rescue, while two life-buoys were thrown from the ship. The boat got close enough to give him the end of an oar, which he took and cried. "For God's sake save me." The men were about to haul him into the boat, when he w...

WORDS OF WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

WORDS OF WISDOML The world's judgments are no doubt su perficial, and therefore very commonly defec tive or false; but the world's conventions that is, its rules tacitly agreed on for the preservation of the order and decency of social intercourse-are, on the whole respect able, and to be observed. SWhat we choose to call the higher employ ments of life can acquire the right to that title only by including within them the simpler details and labours that lead up to them. The best labour can never be per formed without labour. Leadership is one thing and dominancy another. It is well, if we have not the qualities of leadership, to be willing to bI led; but to have our minds dominated and controlled is another and entirely different thing.' The important lesson to impart to children is that of sound independent thought. And, if it lead to strong-minded ness-that is, tenacity of opinion-it will be well, provided opinions be carefully and thoughtfully formed.
