A Boy of Iron. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1885

A Boy of Iron. A year or more ago, as the foreman of one of the ironworks of Cleveland, Ohio, was crossing the park, one day, he espied a little skip of a boy, seemingly nbt over eleven years old, seated on a big fly-wheel, and chewing the cud of bitter reflection, "Who are you ?" "I'm Jack." "What are you doing here 2" " Resting." "What do you want ?"': "A job." Those were the questions and answers. The boy was pale and ragged, .but in his steed blue eyes the foreman saw game. And, too, the idea of a waif like him, setting out to battle the world, touched a tender chord in the heart of the man, who had boys of his own, and so he set Jack to work in the -yard. No one thought the boy would stay a wdek, and no one cared to ask where he came from or who he was. But he stuck. He was hard-working and faithful, and, as the weeks went by, he made friends. One day he walked up to the foreman and said : " I want to learn the trade." "You Ha I ha ! ha I Why, Jack, you are not big enough to ha...

Too High a Price. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1885

Too ;Hgh a Price. The following story is told of Bensley, the actor: The spirits who alarm Richard III. in his tent were wont to appear up a trap en buste. Bensley, having been playing Henry VI., was waiting impatiently to display his upper half as his own ghost, and having been invited to sup ; with some convivial friends after the performance, divested himself of half his costume to save time. Presently he appeared under the stage, his upper man solemnly arrayed in black velvet and bugles, the lower in a. tight pair of smart new nan keen pantaloons. He placed himself upon the platform, cautioning the carpenter at the winch not to raise him too high, and, the cue being given, up he went. Close by stood a mischievous' low comedian, who had been laughing at Bensley's odd appearance; and, the spirit of fun being too strong for him, he suddenly gave the winch a few rapid turns, ran King Henry up to the level of the stage, and jerked him forward full into the sight of the audience.

A bad jury in a law-suit-Perjury, England maybe master of the C's, but'she.: has never yet been able to fairlyniaster the H's. The hair of a young lady in Prahran turned white in a single night. She fell iito a flour sack. Better bare feet and contentment there with than patent-leather boots and a corn on each toe. There is a man in Richmond who signs himself " T. Pott." It is said that the least - thing makes him boil over. One half of the world doesn't.know how' the other half lives. And'tis just as well. It . saves a great deal of gossip. A very eulogistic obituary of a lady says: " She was married twenty-four years, and in all that time never once banged the door." A well-known authoress gives it as an item of domestic felicity that the man of the family should be absent at least six hours a day. A girl has visited a music-shop and asked. for " The heart boiled down with grease arid care," and " When I swallowed home-made pies." The shopman at once recognised what she desired. A...

Refusing to Shell Out. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1885

Refusing to Shell Out. Gaston , Vassy-whose real name was George Perodeaud-will long be remembered as the most brilliant newspaper reporter of his time! He may be said to have elevated the reclntme to the dignity of a fine art. It is about four years since that evening, when, on his .return from a great state ball at President Grevy's, he called upon the editor of a paper to whom he had promised a report of the official fete. The editor, a well known Deputs, on taking up the manuscript, observed that all the splendours of the ball -the robes of the ambassadors' wives and other distinguished ladies-were fully de scribed, but that not a syllable was mention. ed of the dresses of Madame Grevy and her daughter. "Vassy, you have forgotten the principal thing--viz., the dresses of Madame and Mademoiselle Grevy," said the editor. "Not forgotten, but passed over," was the' phlegmatic reply. "Then quickly add a few lines "'--" Not a word i" "Why not I You know that our paper has now been rep...

Some amusement was caused to the uninitiated onlookers at the administration of the form of oath the celestiats went through Taree of the foreigners proved the throw-   ing of the stones and the continued an- annoyance they have been the subject to for six months. This statement was strength- ened by an Englishwoman who is married to Monyon.
