A City Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
A City Dinner. Peter Flamingo gave a dinner. I' should say he rather presided at a dinner given to him, for there was no dish lupon the table that might not have borne above it the banner of the noble house from which it emanated. Believe Flamingo, and the ban quet was no other than a colldction of offerings .made to him by the English n.p bility ; he could have pointed out the re presentatives of the Peerage, from the-noble who came to cut throats with William the Conqueror at Hastings, to the last baron eh nobled for cutting the throats of his con stituents at Westminster. How Flamingo's guests-benevolently picked out by him from the very mob of tradesmen-wondered at the banquet; how they praised their hdst for his high connections; and how they hated him I The dinner passed off with excessive cordiality. The wine, every drop of it from the cellars of the peerage, made at all events a passing call at the hearts of the drinkers,. ere it mounted into their heads: and all was sinceri...
MIXED FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
MiXED FARMING. Combination is illustrated as among the important means of increasing the revenue of the farm, and it is held that when each part is well done too many things cannot be combined. Nevertheless, it must be remem bered that it is fully as difficult to carry out a large combination of interests in agricul ture as it is to undertake several trades or. professions under one .management.. Few persons can carry out the breeding of tirf or draft horses in their several strains, breed several families of beef and dairy cattle, and at the same time carry on a system of general cropping and of dairying. But one and the same man, if he has good business ability, may select a single breed of horses or of cattle, whether beef or dairy, one of sheep, and one of hogs, and at the same time carry on cropping, and if he keeps a dairy breed of cattle he may carry on dairying successfully. In fact, a man cannot breed successfully without also combining an in telligent system of cropping tu...

Agricultural, &c. BRIEF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
BRIEF NOTES. The American Garden says : Most nuts will not sprout after they becomethoroughly dry, and should, therefore, be planted as soon as ripe. When a screw in wood becomes loose, it is easily tightened. Plug up the screw.hole with cork and insert the screw as before.. It will be tight and stay tight.. . The Farm _ournal humorously observes that if the craze for hornless cattle becomes universal the average cow doctor, who knows but two diseases, hollow horn and wolf in the tail, will find half his occupation gone. He will have to confine his practice exclu sively to the tail.

OUR ILLUSTRATION. THE PRINCESS BEATRICE, The youngest child of the Quoen, was born· in. 1857, and is, consequently, now in her. thirthieth year. For many years it seemed that she wouid remfort and solace to Her Majesty in her old age, but this expectation has not been roalised as she was married in July 1885 to Prince Henry of Battenburg, the brother of the prince who was ejected from the throne of Bulgaria in such an un ceremonious manner through Russian intrigue. The princess . has one child, a'.: daughter, born the latter end of last year.

" We can, Maria, if we want.to." "Then, John, let us go out to the front gate for awhile and' see if it will seem any thing like it used to ?" "All right, Maria. You go out and try it awhile, and if you like it perhapsl'll take a turn at it." But: Maria thought him too much of a bruce to do anything of the kind..
MAXIMUM POTATO YIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
MAXIMUM POTATO YIELDS. We are now digging and weighing the po tatoes of our rich soil plot, where, perl.aps, about 500 different kinds have been raised during the past eight years. The average yield seems to increase every-year, and the question arises whether it would not pay to treat large areas just the same as this little plot has been treated. The entire yield this year will certainly exceed 803 bushels to the acre. Our treatment of this land seems to indicate that potatoes, to give maximum yields, not only need complete fertilizers, but that they need every form of plant-food, the effects of which the chemist may not be able either to estimate or recognize. We have used upon this plot every available form of potash, phosphori c acid and nitrogen, as well as sulphur, magnesia, salt, lime, sand and muck. No matter, however, what the soil is made up of, if we could raise such immense potato crops year after year, evi dently it must not only be retentive and moist, but also well d...
KIND TREATMENT OF THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
KIND TREATMENT OF THE HORSE. The editor of the New England Farmer tells of a horse that was owned by a shift less, lazy farmer for many years, and which from colthood up always looked like an old time horse.' It was thin in flesh, rough of coat and poor in spirit. It had a lazy gait that was recognized by all the neighbors as it passed. Neither the continual jerking of the reins nor the repeated touch of the •driver's whip would make any. lasting im pression on its rate of speed; After getting along into his "teens," the owner concluded he must sell or swap. him off for what he would bring, and buy, a, new and young: couree, but he fell into the hands -6f ' different sort of a man, one who fed well and took good care of all of his animals. In six months the former owner did not know his horse when it was driven by. It was nearly 200 pounds heavier,. its coat was smooth and glossy, its head was up, eyes bright, and in general appearance the animal was the' picture of vigor and good h...
The Dog and the Cat. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
The Dog and the Cat. A dog' sat howling in a yard and a black cat sat on the wall. " Why do you make such a noise ?" asked the cat ; "'are you howling at me ? If so, I will go away at' once, as I do not wish to annoyyoi.",::, .?- ? , .im1 -?..t. u ?:?-?, ?. / Howling at- you,',indhee!'- replied the dog ; "'n6, I scarcely -saw you. I am howl ing at the moon." "Why?" The dog was silent for a moment, and then he answered : "I don't know. I have always howled at the, moon, and my father and mother did, and so did their fathers and' mother, and therefore I do the same." " What harm has the moon done to you ?" asked the cat. "Not any that I know of," replied the dog, " excepting that when it is night and ought to be dark, the moon shines out and makes it light. I suppose I don't like things being turned upside down. At any rate, 1 have bowled at the moon ever since I was a puppy, and I suppose I always shall. It's my nature, one can't help one's nature." " Ah," said the cat, "you should g...
An Exploded Idyl. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
An Exploded Idyl. Farwell, my dear, the summer's old; A day may bring us weather When we should find it too much- cold To ramble thus together. These happy weeks that we have passed In unrestrained communion. Were too idyllic, far, to last, Or lead to closer union. I like you--well,'I love you, then Your chivalrous attention Has made your rank, of all the men, The de rest I could mention., Don't be absurd-within a year. You'll certainly forget-me, As I shall surely you, my dear, If only you will let me. If all the year were March, mon cher, And all the days were sunny; If I had less expensive tastes, Or you had only money I think-yes, I am sure-perhaps, That should you try you'd win. Come, Don't be absurd, this gown alone Would costlyou two months' income.
Taking a Little Trip. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
Taking a Little Trip. Speak of devices.to get cool, the Historian is reminded of the case of a hanger-on upon the verge of jdurnalism who is well known. in the suburbs of the city. This individual bad established some sort of a connection with a newspaper published in South Mel. bourne, and the way he obtained "facilities" on the strength of that connection was the wonder and envy of all like-minded persons in the district. His facial area wae.im measurable. It is an adage in the transpor tation business, " Whoever zides free once never pays again." This newspaper man never paid again. One exceedingly hot day, having made up his mind.that the proper thing to do was ,to take 'a salt-water excusion, this man of cheek strolled along the wharf in order to pick out the likeliest excursion steamer he could find. He selected one at last, ,went on board, hunted up a chair, took a seat in a shady place, put his feet on the rail, and be gari to read a newspaper. ..In about fifteen minutes a s...

Dawson, of Louisiana, to Miss Alice Lemon, of Washington, D.C. This marriage is the seqdel to an unusually romantic story., George Dawson, a young cap tain in the Confederate Army, lay seriously injdred in 1864, a prisoner of war in the United States hospital at Indiana;:olis. One of the ladies who visited the h spital fre quently and ministered alike to the wearers of the blue and grey, was a Mrs. Lemon, the wealthy widow of-a Unionofficer.

Took His Chance. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 March 1887
.Took His Chance. A few evenings ago, two newspaper boys had a quarrel, which led to blows, and after a while one of them slipped and fell, the other, falling on him,;commenced punching like a young pile-driver. "Oh, don't hit him while he's down," cried a bystander. "That's all very well," replied the boy, "but it's the only chance I've got; he won't let me hit him when he's up.' The Old Maid's Address to Her Oat. - My cat, sit you down on this soft-cushion chair, And no longer repose on the mat; In Egypt your species, historians' declare, Was worshipped. How charming! I wish we lived theire, My Cats! I love you, my pussy, though ribald ones doubt If you'd dare to encounter a rat. Reflections like these I disdainfully scout, And bid your detractors at once to " gi tout, My Cat !
