Presently one of the party mentioned the name of a friend..: "Why, do. youn know him?" quickly spoke a listener... . k i "Indeed I do," was the reply. "He brought his fourth wife to see us .a short time ago." "His fourth !" exclaimed the other: " I wouldn't have been inthe house.

Payment with Interest. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
- Payment with Interest. When Charlie Molyneux, of the 99th Bengal. Skirmishers, joined the regiment en route for India, he declared that he owed a grudge to Mrs. Cholnondeley-Brown, which should be one day paid in full. And now he vows, as he once again:treads the pavement of Pall Mall, after an exile of ten years, that he is quite ready to wipe off that old score. Ten years ago, Mrs. Cholmondeley-Brown was a handsome matron, in the full-blown bloom of womanhood, possessed of sufficient beauty to be tolerably attractive, and, for the enhancement of her charms, resorted only to such minor artifices as a dark line under the eyes, and careful pencilling of slightly defective eyebrows. Ten years ago Mrs. Chomondeley Brown affected a playful assumption of age, which was intended to be, and was usually, strenuously contradicted by the devoted youth or youths who were the attaches of her court for the time being. But a decade had made a considerably change, and Mrs. Cholmondeley Brown was...

Duelling at So Much a Head. "We had," said " One. of. the Crowd," '" one of the funniest duels I ever sasw at a Aillekge. It Wiaspuit-up job, of course. The pistols were not 'loaded with ball, but the duellists did not know that. They stood up like men,' apparently, but one of them got so nervous he fired before the word was given. That placed him at the mercy of his opponent who was. a poor creature, but rather shrewd. As soon as ..the pistol went off the individual who fired it 'got utterly scared; The other- stood?calm and deter. mined,-and proceeded to .take -leisurely aim, "'Don't shoot yelled 'tie victini' 'don't shoot!' "I believe it is my turn, isn't it i' asked the other, and he turned to.his seconds. "' Of course it is, go ahead.' "And he again leisurely covered his man.

Singular Recovery of a Lost Ring. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
Singular Recovery of a Lost Ring. The story of the lady at Sorrento a week or so ago, whose fat pocketbook was dropped from a pavilion -into the waves, and who some.days afterward recovered it by having it washed into her hands while bathing near the same spot, recalls to mind a somewhat romantic circumstance which actually oc curred a few years ago, and which, if not so fresh, is equally remarkable. A gentleman, whose betrothed was away on a trip, wore upon a finger of the left hand a ring, which inclosed under a hidden spring a tiny curl of the lady's hair. One summer evening he visited. Portland.. Scarcely had he arrived and descended into the hotel dining-room when he remarked to a mutual friend of his prospective bride and himself a great loss he had sustained. ' "My ring-our ring," he 'said. "I can't find it. I had it this morn ing. I may have left it on some washing stand at the station." ' Search 'proved' un availing, the precious souvenir was not re covered. A full week ela...
KEEPING MILK COOL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
KEEPING MILK COOL. A farmer on Statan Island, N.Y., writes : " I keep alsmall dairy and sell my milk direct to consumers. The cooling question is settled by taking..the: milk, as soon as we have-finished milking, to the well, in cans of forty quarts, placing in tubs deep.enough to allow ;thne water to cover them up. to the neck, and drawing water fresh'from the well and placinglit around the cahs. . As soon as there is water. enough in the `tub? the lid of each can is taken off and the milk is stirredd until you can feel that .it .is cooled. The water is then. changed and the .lid .closed. After. supper it is stirred: ag4in, and; fresh water placed around the cans. This is the popular way of keeping milk by milkmen in this country. I have placed milk in stores and it has remained sweet on the fourth day, where kept in an ice-box, and no complaint from the retail trade., 'This in the hdttest weather."
Speaking in Figures. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
Speaking in Figures. 0, her tidy little figure, when I think upon , its curves In her light .nd lawny robe of lily whitr, Then my heart from vows of celibacy, very nearly swerves, . And I'm tempted to acknowledge Cupid's might. O, her tidy little figure has an undulating -grace Like the willow branches bending o'er a pond, And, to crown its graceful glories, she's a fascinating face, . With hazel eyes and curls of golden blonde. In short, when I her beauties surreptiti ously appraise, I affirm there's none so fair in West or East;. For a hundred thousand pounds I've made up. my mind to raise, And her tidy little figure's that at least.
