ADA AND HER COUSIN CHARLES, A TALE FOR VICTORIAN BOYS AND GIRLS. CHAPTER XXII. SELF-SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 October 1878

ADA AND HER COUSIN CHARLES, A TALE FOR VICTORIAN BOYS AND GIRLS. BY E. A. SAMSON. CHAPTER XXII. SELF-SACRIFICE. "Believe me, Miss Ada, when I vouch for the truth of what I said just now. Mr. Charles assured me that he would never take for wife any one but you," exclaimed the almost witless Mr. Pipkins in tones of the direst appre hension for himself, yet of the sincerest commiseration for her. He had just begun, mistily, to see that, in some way or other, how he utterly failed to ap prehend, that he had been guilty of an indiscretion. He was such an obtuse fellow, though such a well-thinking one, that he could not for the life of him understand how that anything he had given utterance to could have caused pain or grief to Ada. " What do you mean, you atrocious creature, by letting your tongue run loose in that reckless fashion ? You are an incorrigible stupid, and I hope I shall never set eyes on you again! There now ! Why, even should you ever happen to stumble upon the right thing...

TOM TAVERILL'S FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 October 1878

TOM TAVERILL'S FORTUNE. " WHEN poverty comes in at the door, love flies out at the window I" said Mr. Vane, thumping the table heavily, as, plethoric, and shining with toast and butter, be sat at his breakfast table with his daughter Marion and her sweetheart, a young bank clerk, by name Tom Taverill, a lodger of the Vanes, on a splendid winter morning. "Oh, nonsense, papa dear I" returned Marion. "Why, only last night you were preaching about 'love in a cottage,' and 'a dinner of herbs,' and telling us how you and miamma began life on nothing a year." - " Sixty pounds per annum from my saliiry as a elerk," grumbled Mr. Vane. ",Well, Tom has seventy-five." "Everything's dearer now," said Mr. Vane; "provisions, rates,. rents, and, above all, women's dress." . " Oh, I deny that papa. Materials are cheaper." " Then women want more of them," muttered Mr. Vane; "trains, to wit." Now, Mr. Vane, although by no means a wealthy man, -was what is popularly termed "well-to-do;" and like many a...

RANDOM SKETCHES. SATURDAY AFTERNOON. SATURDAY Afternoon, with its usual cricket and football matches, regattas, seaside trips, and other innumerable outdoor sports is a time looked forward to with vast interest in our young and rising city. As people differ in almost everything, so they do in their amuse ments ; and it would be impossible to enumerate all the sports indulged in. But we will, touch upon those which interest us most, hoping the reader will also be interested The Yarra is a favourite resort for the sentimental of both sexes, who think the Saturday afternoon can be best spent in sweet communion with one another., A little danger adds another charm to rowing on the Yarra.- Very oftei: the'yonng gentleman is rather shaky in 'his row ing; and if the happy couple'manage to tip the; boat over by" running into a snag.

CHAPTER XX.YIL AN IMPROMPTU MEETING. A couple of years have elapsed, and I one fine October afternoon, in Collins street, in that portion of it familiarly known as the "block," Mr. Pipkins suddenly came face to face with Charles, i who was sauntering about, objectless, purposeless, and with his heart full of the bitterest thoughts and the saddest retrospections. Our plodding, steady-going Civil servant, who had ultimately succeed in achieving for himself a good official position by sedulous attention to his duties, and not by any creeping, crawl ing deference to his chief, or by back stairs influence, was now in the receipt ! of five hundred a year. On seeing Charles, and on being in such close proximity to him, his first ! notion was to give him the cut direct, but this the latter prevented by seizing him by the hand, and expressing the delight he experienced at once again meeting him. " And how are they all at St. Kilda," I exclaimed Charles, " How is Mr. Grinnilge ? Is Edith as m...

TOM TA VERILL'S FORTUNE. (Continued from our last.) " Oh, that's a cat ofanother colour 1" said the boatman, snatching up his oars. "I'm your man, governor. Come along." In a twinkling Tom jumped into the boat and was speedily rowed alongside the Creole. The first mate came and looked over'the side of the vessel. "No more strangers allowed on board," said he, curtly. "Is Mr. Verinder on board ?" asked Tom, excitedly. "Both the owners are on board," replied the mate, in a tone that signified, "What's that to you ? " "I maust speak to one of them," said Tom, hurriedly. " I come from Messrs. Bond and Company." "Ah," said the mate, pricking up his ears, and he opened the gangeisy and lowered the steps. "Thu "? another thing. Come on deck young ster." And in another few minutes Tom stood on deck of the noble Indiaman.

CHAPTER XXVI. MARRIED LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 12 October 1878

CHAPTER XXVI. MARRIED LIFE. They all tacitly agreed to respect Ada's wishes, and from that day forth Charles's name was never mentioned in her presence. Yet they could not so far control their feelings as to regard him in the same charitable forgiving spirit in which she did. His conduct from their point of view had been more than inexcusable, it had been too dis graceful to be pardonable. Simple, honest Mr. Grinnidge, blamed him in his heart with just severity for his un feeling, callous, selfishness to Ada. Mr. Pipkins held him in supreme contempt, and as for Edith. she not only despised him, but she held him in positive hatred. Charles was now a member of the Mullock family, for the doting parents would not listen to his frequently ex pressed wish of having a separate establishment. His position among them consequently was not one of the most enviable. Mated for life with a self willed ignorant woman, under the daily espionage of his severely economical, not to say penurious moth...
