GOOD FOR DIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
GOOD FOR DIGESTION. She was really charming, and-seemed to enjoy very much the "quail on toast," until her pearly teeth struck a couple of shot: then her countenance changed, her expression became wrathy andishe said, " It is too mean to leave those nasty shot in the birds." "Why," remarked he, "they are good for the digestion." " Yes," said she, " that may be, but I don't want to die jest that way." Nature uses a good many quills with which to make a goose, but a man can, make a goose of himself with only one. A young lady ate half a wedding cake, then tried to dream of her future husband. Now she says she would rather die than marry the man she saw in that dream.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S PLAIN SPEAKING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S PLAIN SPEAKING. When President of the United. .States Abraham Lincoln was inclined toia rough and-ready style of argument. "It is a disgrace to the country," saida disgusted Government clerk, "that such a boor should be President !" What made him say so was this. He had asked the President to give a brother, who had been honourably dis?harged from the army, a place in the Civil Service. "Let me see," said Lincoln, "I believe you yourself are a clerk in one of the de partments 7" "Yes, said the applicant ;"Lam in the Treasury Department" " I thought so," continued, the Presi dent. "And your father holds'an office in Washington, does he not 7" " Yes, sir; he is the chief of a bureau in the War Department'" replied the beggar, beginning to feel rather uncom fortable. "Is ther any other member of your family holding office under the Govern ment " was the next query,, anwered with " Yes, sir; I have a younger .brother in the Interior Department." Whereupon Lincoln put h...

THERE IS NO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
THERE IS NO DEATH., "There -is no-death f The stars go do*enr' To rise upon some fairer shore; knd bright in heaven's jewelled crown They shine for evermore. There is no death ! The dust we tread Shall change beneath the summer showers To golden grain or mellow fruit, Or rainbow-tinted flowers. The granite rocks disorganise To feed the hungry moss they bear; The forest leaves drink daily life From out the viewless air. There is no death ! The leaves may fai, The flowers may fade and pass away; They only wait through wintry hours The coming of the May. There is no death! An angsl form Walks o'er the earth with silent tread; He bears our best-loved things away, And then we call them " dead." He leaves our hearts all desolate, He plucks our fairest, sweetest flowers; Transplanted into bliss, they now Adorn immortal bowers. The bird-like voice, whose joyous tones Made glad these scenes of sin and stie, Sings now an everlasting song Amid the trees of life. And where he sees a smile too b...

WHAT WAS DONE WITH Tom` BUTTERMILK. A young lady from the city, boarding for the summer at a farmhouse on the borders of Delaware county, visited the dairy attached, and watched with marked. attention the country maid in her toil. "Your task is a laborious one," she re marked to the maid. "Somewhat, ma'am," was the reply. "Nature is indeediwonderful m her workings," continued the lady. "Observe the green grass in the fields, and in a short time it is converted into milk, and from milk into butter." "Yes, ma'am." " Honey is a strange anomaly also. Ob serve the little bee wandering from flower to flower extracting the sweetness there from, and depositing it in the globular form into the comb." , " Yes, ma'am."

"If I am not exhausting your patience, may I ask you what use is made of the buttermilk 1" "We feed some of it to the hogs, and what's left we feed to the boarders.'

NOVELTIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
NOVELTIES. White crepon dresses embroidered with coloured flowers are delightful toilettes for summer weather. Skirts of this material are made up with green satin bodices cc.vered with guipure lace, the collar and waistbands being of pink glace velvet. Fanc7y black grenadines are all the mode. White flannel dresses are fashionable with short Eton jackets of black silk; and large hats, either straw, crin, or black lace, with large ribbon bows standing up, and tufts of feathers to go with these. The dainty little coloured chiffon even ing bodices, made in satin, are supplied with a plain white satin skirt which, in these days of contrasting skirt and bodice, vary a toilette in the most charming way.

To many a young girl, several of the coloured bodices are suppli...
WHEN SHOULD A CHILD GO TO SCHOOL? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
WHEN SHOULD A CHI:LD GO TO SCHOOL Dr. Jacobi, after a careful examination of the growth and development of the child,' fixes the school age at the end of the seventh year, and Hufeland, in his work on the "Art of Prolonging Life," says--" All labour of the mind which is required of the children before their seventh year is in opposition to the laws of nature, and will prove injurious to the organisation, and prevent its proper development." Spurzhein and Broussais alike condemn intellectual labours during the early years of life, and agree that "precocity of mind'is nearly always disease." Tissot, a learned philosopher and practical physician, says-" No custom is more im proper and cruel than that of some parents who exact of their children much intellectual labour and great progress of study. It is the tomb of their talents and their health." A man said his doge were Al. They should have been K9. Old lady-"Are the matches there,Hary?" Yes, mum, there's wan." "One I Suppose that one...

SHYNESS. Many girls, especially those who have I just begnl t,'o 'go ot', suffer much minaery from shyness. Naturally they lesire to be appreciated, to a certain ext-lt, by the majority of people they mo-ot, but they tiad that their :habit of slthrmkin'- from strangers. nil the awik-war.lness of their s.iyness, ;alaysi tells against themi in rnespec :, this.

ATTRACTIVE ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
ATTRACTIVE ROOMIS. A fancy prevails for having rooms fittel up in what is called the " Old Co.lony " style. The rooms have high waiuscots, and walls panelled and having stucco wreaths and decorations. Thin- doorframes are low, and the mantel shelves ihigh in proportion. The corners are filled in with cupboards, with plenty of ornaments, and jars and vases for flowers. Hearths and fireplaces arc of polished red brick with fire-dogs, and glittering brass furnishings. The woodwork is enamelled white; the hard-wood floweris are stainrd dark, and polished, and with Turkish rugs over them.

ICEBERGS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
ICEBERGS. The main feature of the Polar .Seas con sists o- the icebergs, those huge 'inasses of ice which are so frequently a source of'; danger to whalers and sealers. They are of every size, from a few feet to 200, and, in certain instances, 400 feet high. Now it is supposed that only one-seventh part of a who!e berg projects above the sea -level, so that an iceberg which shows 100 feet above water would probably be altogether 800 feet in height. Though they serve no purpose useful to man, they are largely resorted to by the auks, eivers, and other birds which affect the Arctic regions, the smaller frag ments being occasionally occupied for a time by seals, and more seldom by the white polar bears. Their origin waslong a subject of dispute, but it is new certain that they are derived from the land ice. Off the western shores of Greenland they are very numerous, and there indeed is the chief place of their birth. For they are s:mply portions of the great stream of ice, which, trave...

It is of length to reach to the waist, is circular, and turns back in front into revers, which are made to button across if required. At the back a deep, square collar falls over the shoulders, and th e cape is often covered with straps from the neck to the edge. Lighter capes are trimmed with lace in many pretty ways to enrich .their appearance.
INVITED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 9 November 1894
INVITED. " Mother sent me," said a little girl to a neighbour, "to ask you to come and take tea with her this evening." "Did she say at what time, my dear ?" " No, ma'am: she only said she would ask you, and then the thing world be off her mind." " Come to my alms," as the poormaster said to the traelp.' The work of the hardy miner is all in vein, and yet he is happy when he finds it's ore. Artists have adopted different emblems of charity. We wonder none of them ever thought of a Ciece of India-rubber-a subr stance so easily made to give.
