DYING TWICE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
DYING TWICE. It is not often that an actor or actress is seen to die twice on the same evening in the same piece. The incident we are about to describe occurred not long since during the performance of II Trnawre. A well-known prima donna, who was se cured at only a few hours' notice to sing the part of Leonora, had no rehearsal on the stage, and being deceived by the long projection in front ofthe proscenium arch, died too near the footlights. When she happened to look upward she saw that she was directly under the curtain, so she calmly arose, walked a few steps up the stage, and proceeded to dic all over again, amid the convulsive laughter of the audience. The Earl of Chesterfield has returned to England from the C )e. Having brought his Cbesterfleld, it's a pity his grace left the Capse behind.
THREE OF A KIND. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894

They were all ambitious to have swell weddings and stunning out fits, but their purses were not long enough for both, and to possess the latter even was a financial puzzle which gave them many a sleepless night. Finally they put their heads together and hit upon a plan. They decided to give up the big wedding, but they would rave the bang-up outfit by co-operating :heir moneys. No. I, who was to be married first, was to make a bargain with :he dressmaker to make any alterations desired in th...

LIFE IN THE ALLEGHENIES [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
LIFE iN THE ALLEGHENIES - A type of pioneer.still existing in the Allegheny mountains, but fast passing away, is the old-time lumberman and wood-chopper. At the present day the number of men engaged in that healthy but arduous occupation is but small com pared with the thousands that laboured in the pine forests a few decades since. Still the lumberman met with occasion ally in the interior of Pennsylvania faith fully portrays the characteristics of the class. Attired in a costume which would cause a sensati-n upon Broadway, he stalks along without attracting the slightest notice from the inhabitants, with whom his appearance is too familiar to cause comment. The genuine old time woodsman will be seen in midwinter wearing a fur cap, the material-of which is possibly a trophy of his rifle. A heavy and exceedingly loud pattern flannel shirt is his only chest covering, for he scorns the coat and vest of the towns people. A pair of commonplace trousers tucked into long stockings cover h...

HE WAS A THOUGHTFUL MAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
HE WAS A THOUGHTFUL MAN. A moody man walked into a cheap but very well-patronized restaurant on Park row, and sat down at a table. He ordered eggs boiled, medium, and then sank into a reverie, from which he was aroused by a waiter, who had not seen him at first, say ing: " Ordered, sir !" "Pickled lambs' tongues and a cup of tea," was the reply of the forgetful cus tomer; and the second waiter hurried away. He had hardly gone when a third waiter, heedless of having been forestalled, re peated the question: " Ordered, sir ?" "Beef and beans and a glass of milk," answered the thoughtless man. A fourth waiter respectfully inquired what he wanted before the first order was filled, and he begar with, "A piece of mince-pie, and a"- when a waiter with two eggs and a cup of coffee pushed the other aside, saying : " Oh, shut up ! Hcre'swhst he ordered." "No, it ain't," said a -servitor, who car ried tongue and tea. "' This is what he told me to get for him." "Out of :he way?" crieda zealons ...

HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
IILtSBANDS. A good wife makes a good husband. 'fhfb is an adoom. If there is any husband who has not heard of it, she. will not. be in the least surprised, because the gentle sex is accustomedn to being held responsible for a1i the ills of mankind. But woman doesn'r minds Sle is accustomed to it. So when the axiom says, " A good wife makes a good husband." she refrains from disputing it, but she doesn't believe it. There are some women reading this who are saying this minute. " Now. I'm a good wife, and look at the husband t"ve got I" All the same the ?tle holds. Women who haven't got good husbands may be good themselves-they may be too good. It's wrong to be too good, and the only successful way is to be good inr the right way. As there are all sorts and conditions of men, so ther9 are all sorts and eondtions of husbands. Fate sometimes apoik a good bachelor to make a bad hsuband. And Socrates gave the key of the situation to his brethren by saying,- "Marry or not1 you'll repent it...
PLATFORM HELPS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
PLATFORM HELPS. The following advice to temperance orators may be useful to public speakers generally: - "It is always a mistake tocrowd into a single speech the whole of the phases of the temperance question. There are so many points of attack that it is policy to onI fire one or two shots at a time, but it is necessary to so fire them as to hit the mark. Put heart into your address. The best speech in the world falls fiat if it lacks enthusiasm and earnestness. Have a purpose in speaking. Before every meeting ask yourself-What object have I in standing on the platform ? If the answer is, simply to gratify ambi tion, do not do it But if the answer is, that temperance may be helped, and that men may be instructed and edu cated, depend upon it that your effort, however barren it may seem, wil! be blessed. The joy of rescuing one poor drunkard is a sufficient recompense for all the speechesof tile best advocate. There must be sound common sense in our speeches. The mere flowers of rhe...
