For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
Some of the newest Parisian evening dresses promise to be very elegant, one of plain and figured gauze, both of a lovely shade of sky blue, has the skirt gathered at the waist and forming thick pleats under the arms; three ribbons of the same hue are passed over and under the pleats just mentioned, terminating in a bow on the left side. The right side of the skirt is very draped, and joins the pouf made of the figured gauze. Plain gauze is used for the remainder of the toilette. The bodice is cut low and draped from the top down, and trimmed with five bows of ribbon matching. the dress; similar decorations are placed on the shoulders. Some rather sensible hints are given in some of the French illustrated papers, one or two of which may bo welcome to our readers. A half-high bodice when a little faded can be a good deal renewed by being veiled under a Charlotte Corday Jichu of some delicate ma terial trimmed with lace. In many cases this bodice is quite sufficient with a pretty skirt...
LAMENESS FROM CASTING A SHOE [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
Frequently, while driving a' horse over a rough road, he will cast a shoe, and 'before reaching home or the next' blacksmith, will go lame. If the foot be examined it will be found hot, and tender to the touch, and the horn of the hoof, where the edges have come in contact with the ground, turned up and ragged. The cause of the lameness is due to the separation-imperceptible, .perhaps-of the lamina or layers of the horny hoof. The treatment consists in rest and the removal' of the rough, jagged edges of the hoof _with a good horse-shoer's rasp, such as should be on every well-'ordered farm. ' If the tenderness persist, let the horse stand with his foot in a pall of warm water. The horse may be shod in a day or two.
Agricultural, &q BRIEF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
BRIEF:NOTES. A- comparatively ignorant man may hit on the` best method- of raising a crop, but success in farming does not depend on lucky hits at random. Every movement must tell to a definite end, and a keen eye must detect any mistakes. When a poulterer starts with common stock, with'a view of ultimate success and pecuniary profit, he has "uphill" business before him, -Do as he will they will pro .duce their like. He cannot successfully compete with improved stock. The best way to remove gapes in chickens is to insert a feather (shaped'for the pur-. pose) in the windpipe, and with a twisting motion bring with it the worms, the cause, out of-the windpipe. "Occasionally kerosene is applied with the feather. Prof. J. W. Sanborn says: "The' belief that a pound of organic matter in green food is worth more than it is in dry food is with out proof, and contrary to- much exact data.. Also the belief that cooked food is more valuable than uncooked; is opposed by the solid facts of trial....

Foolish Waves. " Oh, George !" she said, catching her breath as she gazed out on the bay, " there seems to be no limit to old Neptune's broad expanse; and the waves, George, how playfully they gambol along the shore !" "The waves are very foolish, dear," said George, with a sigh. " How foolish ?" " To gamble where there is no limit.'

A Strange Story. A YOUNG GIRL CALLED FROM EARTH BY HER DEAD LOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
A Strange Story. A YOUNG GIRL. CALLED FROM EARTH BY HER DEAD LOVER. Miss Athalia Gilbert, was 16 years old at the time of her death, and appears to have ,been possessed of one of those warm, loving. bright and even-tempered dispositions which endear the owner to every one with whom she comes in contact. Though so young, she took a busy part in all church duties, and in improvement associations and in the Sunday school her name always had a prominent place. Some three or.four years ago she formed an intimacy with a young man named John Cunliffe, the son of a neighbor, and, despite the tender years of both,' they became strongly attached to each other, and provoked no end of comment at their old fashioned devotion and steadfast affection fdr;oiie eanother;. This; state of affairs con tinued until the girl was 15 years old, when the association was rudely broken by the death of young Cunliffe. He lost his life from the kick of a horse about- a year ago.

Often he'd climb to a high ladder's top.' An...

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. THE LARRIKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. BY SILAs SNELL. THE LARRIKIN. The larrikin is a native. Understand, this is not written in a spirit of sinful pride; it is bare truth, and-we revere truth above all, things - including rum. The dingo is also a native. The habits of the two animals are similar in many particulars ; the same peculiar traits characterise them, though heretofore no philosopher has noted the fact. When the dingo ventures forth alone to course the, squatters' lambs, he doesn't dare to show his teeth to .a flukey, distempered, one-legged collie, or cross the path of a palsied Chinaman; but when a pack of the measley crawlers start out to ravage, the flocks and herds, they'sweep down on their victims.like a hurricane with its hair loose, and stir up suich a frightful racket that you'd think every meagre cur ,was a lion. In this respect the dingo is so like the sportive larry you'd swear they were brothers. The dingo is the nobler beast of the two; he has a loftier ideal, and his bump o...

He'll nevah come to this kentry, don't ye kniow, for he says you're all a set of blooming cads. He's a deuced clevah fellah, is Sir Charles; I'm shave you'd like him. He and I were great chums. Such larks as we used to have, deah boy! One night, after a bit of a supper with two little chorus-singers-Sir Charles introduced them to me-we took a hansom, and Sir Charles got on the box and I got inside, and he drove until he upset the hansom and smashed it into little bits. We we. enot hurt, and on our way home we amused ourselves, dao't ye know, by smashing nearly every blooming shop-window we passed. Next day Sir Charles paid for it all. Oh, you'd like him, I asshaw you. He's the fahstest man in Lon don, and his family's one of the oldest in the kingdom. He's a gentleman born and bred.'
Browney on Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 March 1887
Browney on Tobacco.:. I like to see a man (not too young a man though) enjoying a good-cigar once in a while, when he seems to feel that it is good for what ails him; and 'it does mne good to see him loll back comfortably in his. chair t and puff the fleecywreaths, and seethem curl I 'lovingly around his head. When. a cigar seems to go right to the spot, and, make a t man good natured and better disposed to the t world in general, I say let him smoke it. t The majority of mankind are illnatured enough, and anything that will tend to make c them better in disposition or temper is a good t thing. But it must be a good cigar unless c the smoker wants to poison everybody in the i ..room, and make them rave about the vileness r of tobacco in general. Nothingon this earth f is so destestable as a poor cigar, unless it is N the man that smokes it. If you can't afford a to buy good cigars don't smoke, any at all. s I have just said that I like to see a man t smoke a good cigar, and so I do,...
