The Man Who Knows It All. BY W. D. IIOLLAID. You have teen the great wieracre, eolemnoholy as a Quaker, who will talk in all the seoaeones, winter, summer, spring or fall; He will talk without cessation, 'bout all things since the creation, so that you will see quite plainly, he's the man who knows it all. He will talk about the tariff, and will make you lose your hair if you but listen to his clatter, which he an argument would call. He's a Soorates or Moses, but he's reckless and he throws his knowledge left and right and backward, does this man who knows it all. His achievements he will mention, if you only pay attention to his stories weird and tragio and at times ex tremely tall. He is sometimes young and tender, and his income's somewhat slender, but on this point he'll deceive you, will this man who knows it all. As to talking, he's a daisy, and he talks till you're near crazy, and you tell him be should never leave his stable and his stall. For, despite his knowledge thoroug...

SHEPPARTON. V. RAIMBLERS. An association match, between the above teams, was played on the Sheppar ground on Wednesday last. The Shepparton team had only 19 men, owing to some of the Tatura players not turning up, on account of their horse refusing to proceed further, tlhn Ard morma. A protest was lodged against the Ramblers, on account of their having some unassociated players in their team. Notwithstanding the handicap of being undermanned, the play of the Shepparton was most admired, and, had the full tetiam been present, no doubt the result would have beenl reversed. Bond tatdIPrice for the losers, and fleggarty and Oritten don for the victors, obtained the honors for best play. The result of tihe game was 3 goals for the Ramblers (Uritten don (2), and hIeggarty), and 2 for Shepparton (Bond and Heasford.)

FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 29 June 1894
FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT. The heavy rains of Monday were accompanied by a strong wind which swept through the Dandenong Forest and uprooted great trees, one of which fell upon the hut of a settler named Hagboom and killed him and his wife and an adopted child outright, and seriously injured another settler named Ward and several children, who were also lying asleep in the hut. When news of the; accident spread round the S,.asettlement. assistance 'was quickly to hand, and the rescuing party set to work to clear away some of the branches of the falleni tree. When they had done so they found Hagboom and his wife lying side hy side, dreadfully mangled, and both quite dead. Hagboom's head was nearly severed from his body, and a great splinter had entered his breast, and almost cut his heart out, Between husband and wife the youngest child lay in a dead faint from fright, but quite uninjured. Two other children had escaped with a few injuries; but a third, a little girl seven yenrs of age, who...

Funeral Ode on a Cigar. No sculpturo solemn No urn or column iay'mark where my ashea lie; But o'er earth and air Shall the free winds bear Such parts as are doomed to die; Like the saints of old, I'm condemned and cold, to death through sulIering deiven; Dot I pass with a esmile From my funeral pile, To becomo a bright cloud in heaven. " My dear Amelia," said a dandy, "I bave long wvished for this opportunity, but hardly dare speak now, for fear you will reject sne; but I love you-say, will you be mine? You would be to me everything desirable; your smiles would shed-" Here he came to a pauee-" your smiles would shed-" and again came to a atop. "Never mind the wood.shed," ex claimed Amelia; "go on with the pretty talk." A rich old widower says that when his wile sler every father in that neighborhood offered to console him with one of their daughters; but a few weeks afterward, his cow having shared the esme fate, no one ever thought of replacing his loss by the oiler of another; the...
Knowledge and Pleasure. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 29 June 1894
Knowledgo and Pleasure. Pleasure is a shadow, but knowledge is oetatic in enjoyment, perennial in fame, un. limited in epace, and infinite in duration. In the performance of its great ollices it fears no danger, spares no expense, looks into the volcano, dives into the ocean, perforates the earth, wings its flight into the skies, enriches the globe, explroes sea and land, compre bends the great, amoends to the sublime-no place too remote for its grasp, no ephere too xaltecd for its reach.

THE KYABiIAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. o- FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1894. WE are glad to hear that anotller Arbor Day is proclaimed, to encourage the planting of a fresh batch of trees in the Botanical Gardens. These gardens have been the butt of a good many punsters, and the subject of nmCh good humoured jocularity; but surely all our" townspeople would be pleased to see an effort made to establish this reserve on a satisfactory basis. We may, however; say at once, that this will never be tile case unless the laying out, planting; and in fact all the. arrangements. are in the hands of skilled and capable men. It is a very fine idea no doubt that everyone in the loqality should visit and lend a hand in en deavoring to beautify the enclosure ; but there is an art in tree planting just as much as in anything else, indeed a good deal more than in many things; noi is the untrained eye always to be. depended on for correctness of angle and are, and those other matters of symmunetry w...

THE WAYS OF THE HEATHEN CHINEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 29 June 1894
THE WAYS OF THE HEATHENI CHINEI. i N "Chinese Characteristics" (Kegan J Paul), Mr. Arthur H. Smith has brought together some forty essays bearing upon the peculiarities, mental and physical, of the wonderful, mysterious, and rather uncanny race which, I|n the judgment of many observers, is called yet to play a great part in the history of the Western world.' Mr. Smith admits frankly that it is impossible to write a character of the.Chineso people. In some respects as like each other as one shilling is like another, they differ in others as two related faces differ. All he has attempted to do, therefore, is to study certain points of the topsy-turvy lcharacter, and to give us the result in a series of well-written and interesting chapters, from which we shall take an extract or two at haphazard. CHINESE CnRDULIFY. John Chinaman is the most credulous of mortals, as Mr. Smith shows uso y one or two examples : It is by no means uncommon to meet with scholars whoe talent, ganuged by com ...

A New Kind of Stove, A Philadpbhia papcr speaks of "an eaoen* trio stove dealer" of that city committing suicide ,y cutting his throat. le must have been i.sane. No sane man would think of doa!i'g in eccentric stoves. A little dot of a girl inquired of bar mother tn meaning of" trausatlantio," and was told," Across the Atlantic." "Does * trans' always mean cross, marma ?" she then asked. "Yes," replied her mother; " but don'S bother me any more." "Then I guess 'transparent' means a crone parent;" was the aoncluolon the un conscious little humorist came to as she ro. lapned into ellenoe.
