NOBLE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

NOBLE jBOYS. We wish every school boy in the colony would read the following true story : Once when Dr. Nathaniel Prentice was head master of a public school at [lox burgh, he threatened to punish with six blows of a heavy ruler the first boy who should be found. whispering. In order that he might not omit punishing those who deserved it, he appointed :a certain number of boys as detectives. Soon'after wards. one of them called ;out; ." ohn Zigler is whispering." John: was ealled up and answered, " Yes, I was whisper ;ing, but I really was not aware what I was about. I was working out a new sum, and asked the boy who-was next to me to hand me an arithmetic that contained the rule I wanted to see." Now, John was a great favourite both with master and pupils, and Dr. Prentice regretted at once the hasty threat he had made; still, he told John he could not allow, him to whisper, or even to. escape the promised `punishment. "I wish 1 could avoid it, but I cannot without breaking my word...

THE RIGHT KIND OF A BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

THE BIGiHT KIND OFUKA BOY. " When I find a boy that grows maize or chickens, or honey, or strawberries, or onions, I)just like to take that boy by the hand and claim relationship," says Ernest Root; "and when our great nation of people get to where they can offer the boys encouragement in the way of good prices, we are on the road to better hmings. I allude especially to the boys that go out in the country and work for themselves under God's clear sky, instead of hanging around the cities begging for a chance to be ' bossed' by somebody."

DECOYED INTO DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

DECOYED INTO DANGER. "What did you say ?" asked the colonel of the shepherd, a Mexican. who had just come in. "Indians, sir, in the plain-Apache !" "Nonsense I" was the reply, mingled with some stronger terms. But the man stuck to his text, and offered to show the colonel and his companions the Indians. He seemed very anxious, I thought. Amongst us at that time were Ben Mellor and his sister ; her friend, a Miss Nevil ; and two other men named Ral cliffe and Michell. The colonel was my partner in the rancho (ranch). Bowler was his name-mine doesn't matter. "Indians !" exclaimed Miss Mellor; " surely they won't come here !" " Indians is queer cusses. But you may depend when they do come they won't give us much notice. Let us ride up and see." In the course of a few minutes we all rode out into the plain. On we went until road gave way to path, and path to desert track, and this to desert-a world of grass, with here and there a tree. Beyond, a pond of water, called by the natives esta...

A ROYAL QUEEN OF HEARTS, OR Love's Devotion. CHAPTER IX.—(CONTINUED). [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

QUEEN OF HEARTS, Love's Devotion. r}B 14 Rs i SHELDON, CHAPP IE IX.-(CONTINuaD). S It was not that Mr Vining objected tc Clifton remaining with Mr Norwood, fox his old friend was a sharp business man, and he knew that Clifton oould not be under a better tutor ; but it galled him to have his soa manifest preference for an other. It was also mortifying to have people know that there had been any dis agreement between them, and to be obliged to answer the numerous enquiries regarding their separation which met him everywhere. He felt that he had made great conces sions to him to-day-had been, indeed, extremely magnanimous; and now to be met with that calm, matter-of-fact rejec tion was humiliating to his pride, to say the very least. Still, he wanted Clifton to come home and his family to be in harPmonious rela lations once more, so he repressed his impulse to retort sharply, and remarked, instead : "Well, I suppose Norwood would feel that you were using him rather shabbily, and, for t...

THE FIRST OCEAN STEAMER [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

riME FIRST OCEAN STEAMIER The Savannah was built at Corlear's Hook, New York, by Crocker and Fickett. She was 380 tons burthen, and was launched on Aug ust 22, 1818, and built to ply between New York and Liverpool, as a sailing packet. About the time of her launch, Captain Moses Rogers, then of Savannah, Georgia, suggested to Messrs. Dunning, Scarborough, Sturges, Burroughs, Henry McKinna, and others, of that city, the idea of construct ing a steamer for plying between Savannah and Liverpool. They accordingly purchased this ship, just launched at Corlear's Hook, and well adapted for the purpose, and they named her the Sava nsnah. They allowed the rigging and other appur tenances for sailing to remain, and supplied her with machinery and paddle-wheels, the latter constructed for folding up like a fan, and to be laid on the deck when not in use, her shaft having also a joint for that pur pose. The wheel house was made of canvas, ex tended on an iron rim. She made a trial voyage to Sav...

PLUCK OF AN OPERA SINGER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

PLUCK OF AN OPERA SINGER. Fifty years ago EIuropean audiences listened with rapt admiration to Ruhii:i, a tenor of whom it was said that, though be himself could not act, he made his voice act for him. The intensity of expression he gave to his voice, the judicious use of the tremolo and the management of light and shade produced a thrilling effect. But his bestvocal feat consisted in taking the bass of the upper stave without preparation, thusr ie tamining it for a long time, and then let it im perceptibly die away. The listeners could hardly believe their. ears. The adventurous tare always on the edge of danger. On one ,ccasion, Rubini, after repeating this vocal ifeat, antl being a second time encoredfound ihimselt unable to produce the expected note. iDetermi .d not to fail, he gathered up his vocal strength'and made a supreme effort. The note came; with its.. wonted power, !brilliancy and duration,' but at the cost of a broken collar bone. A surgeon examined the singer anid fou...

GRASS LAND VALUATION. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE SUNBURY NEWS). [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 29 July 1893

GRASS LAND VA.LUATION. (TO TIE, EDITOR OF TiiLE SUNSIUIIY NJ Ws). SIr,-An,- epistle was published in your valuable paper of last Saturday, headed "Grass uand Yaluati,,n," a?! signed "Another Ratepayer," which for insolence and ignorance on matters affecting those which he has presumed to write upon stands unequalled. He. says-`" I amn not given generally to dip my pen i i ink over lpublic matters." Nobody will accuse him of that, as a perusal of his letter will suflice to prove his statement.. I shi uld say;- he- had dipped his pen- in gall, judging by the anmount of venom lie introduces into his frothy elffusion. I ram sure that whe:n Cr. Evans penned his reply to the question of lowering the g'a s land valuation, he never anticipated- such a cheap advertisement as having it twice published. But nothing less than a re publication would give the proper effect to the criticisms or flights of imagination of an appa;rently pre'udiced individual under the nom de pliume of ' Another Rate...
