Bit Himself. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Bit Himself. A friend of ours lately specutilated in a new set of teeth. On the evening of the day they came home, he went to see " Called Back," at Her Majesty's Opera House. Finding the teeth a little uncomfortable, he took them out and placed them in his coat-tail pocket, and then inadvertently sat down on them. He rose instantly with a scream. "What is the matter?" asked a friend who was with him. "Nothing I nothing I" replied the in jured one; "I only bit myself."

The Night Policeman. Beside a noisy tavern door The night policemiian stands; And a foaming pint of hfalf and half :He.:cutcligs witli eage'r hands ; But little doth our Robert know He is ivatched'by theivish bands, His voice is thick, his speech too strong For any sober man ; His brow is wet with his tall helmet;: He drinks whene'er he can ; But the larrikin laughs in his face He arrests not any man. Through the dark night to the broadday'light You can hear him tramp below, Until the sergeant hath passed, and then .. He soo ffrim his beat doth go To visit a sprightly kitchen belle When the evening star is low. When the burglar, fixing a handy tool, Breaks through the bolted door, And quickly pockets the notes and gold And the glittering jewelled store Hearing the laugh as he gaily flies Come from the kitchen floor.' When Robert makes report'next morn Of naught but naughty boys, Householders angrily impeach He hears the inspector's voice; And he knows that his stately form no more W...

Louis Riel, the Canadian Rebel. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Louis Riel, the Canadian Rebel. "Louis Riel appears tob have come honestly enough by his revolutionary ideas. His father was a revolutionist before him, and on the 17th May, 1849, when his compatriots, Sayre, Laronde, Guillette audMcGinnis were being tried before Judge Thom, an officer of the H. B. Co., for infringing on that com pany's exclusive prerogative of trading with the Indians for furs; Louis Riel's father headed a sufficient force of half-breeds to over-awe the Court and restore the offenders to liberty. When this had been done the half-breeds fired three volleys, shook hands promiscuously and effusively, and shouted. vive la liberte and "Trade is Free." After that, according to the half-breed's version of the story, the elder Riel was a man whom the Hudson Bay Company's officers feared to offend, and it is even hinted that it is par tially to the generosity of that wealthy cor poration towards the elder Riel that the pre sent insurgent leader owes the educational and othe...

ROTTEN WOOD FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

ROTTEN WOOD FOR STOCKS Milch cows, calves, sheep, hogs and poul try, and'sometimes horses and mules, need some acid-absorbing substance to be taken into the stomach every few days, or else they will lose appetite and fall off in flesh. This is especially the case with fattening swine, and also with turkeys fattening for the market. But all: animals need some anti-acid, more or less frequently, during the whole of their lives. In all such cases in which stock have not wide range so that they can hunt for and find what, they need, the material must be supplied them by their owners.. Common charcoal is, beyond all question, the?best substance for this need of the 'stock, and. devery. farmer. would' do well to keep a barrel or two always on hand, to be used as required. It, is useful for many piirpbses besides relieving the stomachs of domestic stock. The next best article to take its place is fire-coal and ashes from the fireplace. This .is almost equal to the pure charcoal. And next i...

Securing a Prima Donna. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Securing a Prima Donna. Few London managers of the present day would condescend-or, for the matter of that, be able-to carry out such tricks as those recorded of Rich, who occupies so promi nent a place in theatrical history, and whom Cibber declares to have been "as sly a tyrant as ever was at the head of a theatre." A worthy followerin his footsteps was found in the person of a now defunct manager of the Princess's, of whom a story is told which, so far as we know, has never found its way into print. M., the inpressario in question, was giving operas, and his prima donna hav ing made a brilliant success received offers of higher terms at other houses. M. did not like the idea of loosing her, but neither did he relish the notion'of paying her anii creased salary, and one day when she called.. upon him to decide the question of.going or staying she observed on the table a superb diamond bracelet. M.. began: He could not afford to pay more-his money was safe, while promises of high p...

Stage Frights. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Stage Frights. Without going back to the days of Garrick or Macready, and a host of other tragedians who alwaps kept in bed nearly the whole of the day to calm their nerves before acting a new part, we can just call to mind one or two cases confined even but to one theatre the'old Adelphi. On the first night of a new, piece there the Keeleys were always very ill from fright. Leigh Murray suffered as much from it as a Cockney does in the "Chops of the Channel." Celeste used to dash on in aheer despera tion from it, sUying to herself : " Well, dey connot keel me for it." Alfred Wigan, one of the letter-perfect actors, was a martyr to fright-so much so that he occasionally totally forgot the words. As for his accomplished wife, he was obliged to divert her attention during the day, lest the dread of a first night should overpower her; and at night she, on one occasion, had to throw herself on the ground to subdue the beating of her heart from fright. S" Feel my hand," said Charles Kean...

The Wrong Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

The Wrong Man. I am certainly the most unfortunate man in the world. If not, how does it happen that I am not married to Miss Priscilla Prichard, only child and sole heiress of the late not much lamented Jedediah Prichard, of Pritch ardstown ? She is worth a hundred thousand pounds, at the very lowest computation; and I-I'm not worth a penny, except in the way of credit. But I am worth a good round sum in that way, and have plenty of unpaid bills to prove it. It was almost a sure thing. I know she would have said " Yesa" if I had popped the question the last time we met. SOh, why didn't I pop the question the last time we met? It is of no use, I suppose, to cry over spilled milk. She .has gone ands:married another man, I understand; and ILam done for. You see, I loved her passionately, with my whole heart and soul, and `was greatly in want of money. SShe entertained, I think, a strong feeling of regard for me; and as she had had very few offers for the last four years, she might eas...

Agricultural, &c. VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

VEGETABLES. All vegetables that are grown for their leaves or stems require an abundant of nitrogenous manures, and it is useless to at tempt vegetable, gardening without it."~To this class belong cabbage, lettuce, spinach, etc. The other class, which is grown princi pally for. its seeds or pods, as beans, peas, etc., does not require much manure of this character ; ini fact, the plants are injured by it. It causes too great a growth of stem and. leaf, and the earliness-a great aim in vegetable growing-is injuriously affected. Mineral manures, as wood ashes, bone dust, etc., are much better for them. For vege tables requiring rich. stable manure it is best that they have it well rotted "and de cayed.

A True Christian. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

A True. Ohristian • An incident 'came under our observation last Sunday evening at a;suburban church that was a fair illustration of what true Christianity really is. A visiting minister came into the church, entered one of the pews and laid his long sleeved hat beside him on the seat. A fashionably-des'sed lady came sweeping up the aisle with an air of dignity about her which commanded atten tion. She stepped into the pew occupied by the reverend gentleman and sat down-upon his hat. Probably the effect of the hat did not penetrate through her gorgeous bustle, for she did not appear to notice that anything was wrong. The minister did, however, for he smiled placidly, and murmured ini the language of the bible : "O, Lordc"thy .will be donie." Nowhad it been anyone else but a minister, he would probably have said : "Suffer little children to come ?iito 6 e, but for heaven's sake, 0, Lord, keep the women off my Sun day hat,"

Do Women Propose? [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Do. Women Propose? It is a well-known and freely-acknow ledged fact that if a woman makes 'up her mind,she wants a man,: she wants him real badly, and will move heaven and earth to get him, and generally succeeds. No doubt she is often sorry that she does get him, but she has accomplished her purpose, and'there is considerable satisfaction in that. What married man ',will deny that his. wifeduring those romantic hours of moon-. light.iwalks and." sittings up " did not, in' all the tender ways for which the sex 'has beei noted for some centuries, make it ap parent to him, that his attentions were re ceived with pleasure; that she liked: to!have him some and see her, and showed her:pre ferennce.:for him, in many ? ittle ways in, Which there was not the least sign of-indeli cacy. If a man is modest 'aid baickwrd, a true sensible girl can soon make him feel perfectly at home and show that she appre ciates and esteems him, and in the course of time' the proposal comeseasy and natnural an...

Keeping a Right Balance. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Keeping a Right Balance. The remarkable swordmanship of the Tartars is proverbial. Their favorite weapon is a long curved cimetar, quite different from that of the Turks. It is made of the finest of steel, richly alloyed with silver, and a sword becomes an'heirloom in a familyand descends to the first born" so long as the family exists. 'Whet'ethe last representative of a race dies, his sword, which may have come down to him from a hundred genera tions, is broken and buried with him. The blades of the weapons, which are beaten out on an onyx stone anvil in the ancient Mogul city of Taztchintzy (the Holy Place), are very thin, and the wonderful feats per formed with them are astonishing. Once. when Robo, the cousin of the great Mogul, was caught in a rebellion, his execution, was ordered, The most skilful swordsman. of the empire was provided for the beheading, and the Great Mogul and his court assembled to see it. For a second the keen Tartar blade flashed in the sunlight and then d...

Well Known to the Police. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Well Known to the Police. One of the most amusing of Sergeant Ballantine's, the well-known English bar rister, experiences is thus told: One night, late-it might be early morning-I was in Piccadilly, and, attracted by a gathering of people, I came upon a policeman struggling with a drunken, powerful woman. She had either fallen or been thrown down, and he had fallen upon her. There were expressions of indignation being uttered by the persons -around,and a row seemed imminent. I touched the officer lightly upon the shoulder, saying, "Why do you not spring your rattle? you will hurt the woman."' He jumped up, and seizing me by the collar, said, "I'll take you into custody for obstructing me in the exe cution of my' duty." I remained perfectly passive, and in the meantime another con stable had come up and had seized the wo man, whom he was handling very roughly. At this moment Sir Alexander ,Cockburn, the Attorney-General, who was returning from the House of Commons, appeared upon the...

The Clown in Private Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

The Clown in Private Life. The clown in private life is a popular mystery. Like: many other very popular mysteries, that of his everyday existence is hardly worth penetrating. Off the stage, Joey is after all very much like other men. The current conception, mainly based on tales and illustrations appearing in Christ nas annuals, is that he is either a seedy looking, cadaverous individual, devoured by constant melancholy, or a portly and pompous being resplendent in the matter of jewellery, and delighting in displaying him self in a befurred and braded great-coat, even in the height of mid-summer. A well-known clown, deceased, by-the-way, was inclined to such sartorical extravagances, and so may have helped to foster this impression. Grave doubts, too, are entedr tained as to whether the clown carries 'his clowning into the sanctity of his domestic existence. Does he always keep the poker between the bars of the grate in readiness for unfortunate visitors, and retain a warm ing pan ...
