A party of merchant travellers in. a train. ivere talking over their, travelling: experience and the danger. of accidents, and finally the question arose as to the safest partof the inain. Failing to settle the question among themselves, they called on the guard, and one of them said to him: "Guard, we have been. discussing the iatter of the safest part of the train, and want td know your opinion." "Want to know. the safest part, oh?" replied the guard. - . "Yes, that's it." "Well," continued the guard,"I've Sbeen on the road for fifteen years, and have been turned over.embankments, busted up intunnels,dumped off of bridges,telescoped . in collisions, blown off the line by cyolones, run into open switches, and had other pleasant incidental divertisements of a Iindred nature,; and. I should say, gentle men, that the safest partof the train was Tat .part which happened to be in the works for repairs at the time of the accident."
GAINSBOROUGH'S THEORBO. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 12 January 1886
GAINSBOROUGH'?S THEORBO. Gainsborough was the son of apoor man residing at Sudbury, in Suffolk, and en joyed but little scholastic education. That a seal education, however, did begin at a very early career is sufficiently certain when we know that he hadpainted several landscapes before h'e was twelve years old.. Subsequently he became a pupil of Hay man, but he did notaremain long in that position. He was ambitious to achieve independence. Reynolds was one of his earliest admirers. When Gainsborough offered his "Girl and Pigs" for sale at the price of sixty guineas, Reynolds took it and paid him a'hundred. Gainsborough was also anamateur musician; and it is well k]nown what a passion amateurs have for their pet enjoyment. Gainsborough's passion was most enthusiastic-most amusing. Not only were musicians the best fellows under the sun, but their very instruments seemed to his eyes worthy of an almost awful respect and love. Smith, who wrote the life of Nolle kens, found Gainsboroug...

THE BLUNDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 12 January 1886
THE BLUNDERER. p: Those who are familiar with examination obomsoknow well the aspect o' the Blun derer. Heis an innocent being, and tlhe . air of stunned app ehqnsion with whichhe marks 3 the inexorable march o the minute hond of the clock draws pity'from the tender haint. Hd is never in ,a liunmour for irreverence; he coild not commit him self like the flippunt student of Oxfoid: who said that "a little good works will not do a man much harm;"his earnestness is worthy ofany cause. Vasancy takes the place in his mind, yet the paperlies before Shim, and he cannot send the sheets away blank. But when nothing but a bare re quest for facts is proffcred by the exas miner, the Blhmnderer is reduced to sdre straits. ' History papers give him scdpe for his best efforts. .

PERSIAN ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 12 January 1886
PERSIAN ETIQUETTE. It is singular indeed, how little we know about Persian manners and customs. The Persian tongue has long beenthe language of Oriental diplomatists, and Persian etiquette is.remarkable for its elaboration. Indeed, Persia is now the only country where Oriental etiquette is kept up in al its ancient purity. Allmarks of respect are observed by the Persians with the utmost punctiliousness and exsetitude. On.the Shah entoring the throne-room on a state occasidn, and seating himself, an officialshouts "iHe has passed I" andall, present bow by stooping the body and. placing the palms.of the hands lightly on ths.knees. .The Grandi Vizier then walks backward frem the Shah, and, moving down the assembly, giveshandfula of silver coins from agolden salver.

THE MOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 12 January 1886
THE MOUNT. Before the war, my father, who owned a plantation and had a large number of slaves, also owned a string of racehorses, and was known all over the South for his love of turf pursuits. He was fairly suc cessful on the flat, but his favourite passion was hurdle-racing and stoeqplo chasing, and many a famous jumper took his first lessons on the old Georgia planta tioen. The last meeting on the Savannah before the war was a very brilliant one. It was,I believe, the only grass racecourso in the States, and on this occasion was graced with the presence of all the leading society of the South. The meeting ocen? pied the last week of the old year and' the fist week of the new, and the programme on Christmas Day was a long and brilliant one, the principal feature be'ng a steeple chase, over two miles and a half, iith some sensational jumps, which would stop anything but a first-class fencer: Our stable's entry was Lightfoot, by Lexing ton, and, like his illustrious sire, he was a g...

THE BRIDAL VEIL. A pretty, dark-eyed girlbeganto workit, whose lover was over the sea. She was a French girl, and came of a good family of lace-makers. "I'll work my own bridal veil in my leisure time," she. said, "so when Walter comes to marry me, I shall be a gay bride." But she never finished her veil. Walt~er come too soon. She married her English lover-as poor as herself-and went with' hisis to London, and the half-finished bridal :veil went along, carefully folded away at the bottom of a trunk, and for the tinie being quite forgotten. It may have. been forgotten in earnest during twelve years, for aught I know; cestainly it lay that long unnoticed. A lovely ten-year-old girl was the fairy that broke iWes long sleep at last. She had dark eyes, like the little peasznt of twelve years ago, but Wa!tor'e golden hair,. '"Oh, the,charming lace!'? she cried, clapping her hands and dancing delightedly as Elsie shook It out of the folds. "Dear sammnia, what is it ? and who made it P and...

BOTANY NIGHTSOIL SCARE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 12 January 1886
BOTANBY NIGHTSOIL SCARE. With respect totho recent disclosures s to the depositing of nightsoil in the vicinity of the Botany waterworks, the Mayor paid a visit to the ground yester day, the result of which led him to believe that the accounts published were cer tainly exaggerated. He is very well ac quainted with the district in ques tion, and states that not only is the land on which the nightsoil is alleged to have been deposited in such enormous quantities lower than the ad joining waterworks, but that several creeks and streams intervene which would prevent any flow of the sewerage, in the event of heavy rain, into the dams. The Mayor states that the plots ofland on which the nightsoil has been deposited have no connection with the watershed mwhatever. Nevertheless, the matter has the Mayor's closest attention, and this morning Mr. hevor Jones and Inspector Seymour had a short conference with him, and left immediately after to make a thorough inspection of the swamps and land a...

After confirming the minutes of the previous meeting aconsiderable amount of correspondence was put in. Letters from IMelbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Bathurst; were read; also an important communication from the Lambton miners. The last-named asked for assistance, and gave rise to a lot of discussion. Eventually it was proposed by Brother Dooley-~"That a sum of £60 be subscribed towards the Lambtonstrike." Brother Spencer seconded it, but Brother Lennon proposed an amendment suggesting that under the present circumstances it would be unwise to reduce the funds of the society by making such an advance. He proposed that this be made knoln to the Lamhton men, and that an express...
