A Brush with the Natives. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884

A Brush with the Natives. REMEMBER a narrow brush I had with the natives. I remember it with pleasure, for even the sight of a savage, - although he was eager to kill me, was a relief. I had lost some sheep at odd times within two or three weeks. I was actually pleased when I first made the discovery, for it gave me something new to think of. One night I ,determined to. watch; and sure enough, I ,came upon the natives carrying off half-a-dozen or so of the fattest sheep. I did not see them sooner than they saw me, and I had to run for it. I had provided for such a contingency, and when I arrived, almost breathless, at the hut, I made all fast in a twinkling, and prepared to receive them. They came up pretty fast at my heels, but I saluted them with three barrels from my, six-shooter, and all but two retreated, yelling, faster than they came. The hut was rather queerly built; just in a nook of some overhanging rocks 'and there was only the front of it exposed. This was an advantage t...

How I. Made 'a Fool of Myself. BY L. D..BRADLEY. HE ruinois about that little affair are becoming so exaggerated that 1li have determined to place the facts before the public. I do not - do this because the said facts are in themselves flattering tO me, but simply because, bad as they are, they will leave me in a trifle less uncomfortable position than that iin which the aforesaid rumors have placed me. ,To be frank, then, the thing was ,as fol lows. It happened last summer, sooi after .1 threw up my billet in the general store up Bubbleton way and came down to the metiopolis to' take a position iir the Civil Service. Of cburse that event was. the turn ing point in my career. I shook, the hay seed out of my head, procured a pair of tooth-pick shaped shoes,'got some skin-tight pants on time-payment, and set up at once as a howling swell. My' salary was not large, but as my labor was light.I did, not:grumble. My duties offered no very wide scope for the exercise of transcendeilt geniu...

"Wants Him Backy." (SEE ILLUSTRATION.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884

"Wants Him Backy." (BEs ILLUSTRATION.) LESS me I What a day I It's not fit for white folks to be out," said Mrs. Westlock to herself as she took her Christmas cake out of the oven and placed it on a rough but very clean bench that served as a side table in the living room of her hut. She gave a momentary glance of admiration at the beautifully browned surface of the currant 'sepckled cake ; then, wiping the perspiration from her face with a red cotton handkerchief, she turned to put four small loaves of dough, which were as light as a sponge, into the camp oven that was waiting, lid off, 'to receive them. SThis done, the good woman busied herself about the house, occasionally going outside for something she required. It was Mrs. Westlock's usual custom to keep at work on a very hot day, for she declared that one :;always felt the heat more if "idly lounging about." It was a picturesque spot where the ' Westlocks' dwelling stood. The building itfelf was a mere slab hut, with aroof co...
