To all whom it may concern. Loafer is derived from the German-laufen, to run; laufer, a runner-an idle man, who seeks his living by sponging or expedients.

"Love's Labor Lost." Yak was a beef, who was tired of being courted for his clean, smooth skin. So he backed through a narrow, hedgeway: six or eight times, which made his hair stand the wrong way., He then went and rubbed his sides against a charred log. This made 'him look untidy.. " Now," he said, " I shall be loved for my. self: alone." . So he wandered about until he came to a farm on which Was placed a windmill and a post for hogs to'scratch 'against: They were equally comely, and the fame of their-beauty had gone far abroad. To them Yak naturallypaid'his attention. The windmill, who was called Lucille Ash tonbury Clifford, received him with expres sions of disgust.

A Holy Sell. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

.,One of the mostillustrious-of our.living judges, Baron A., a contemporary; tells us, was travelling once with a friend through the South of France, and so into Italy. He was at the time.of his journey the possessor of a brand-new' and very splendid chronometer, of .which he was very: proud.. A constant source of complaint on the journey was that nio watch-pockets were affixed to foreign beds, and that the chronometer, placed under the pillow at night, slipped, after the custom of chronometers, from that, position, and, in so5.doing, incurred risk, of breakage. At. length, at a small hotel near Lugano, at which a night's rest was to be taken, the Baron found, to his great delight, the pocket the absence of which had marred the plea 'sure of his journey. So overjoyed was he that there was some talk of arranging the next day's journey with a view to returning to sleep once more at an inn so far in advance of its rivals in its attention to the comfort of guests. In the morning, howeve...

Slow Returns but Large Profits. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

Slow Returns but Large Profits. '3o9 e interesting 'particulars are given by a 'oatemporary of a suit of armour that origi. nally belonged to King Erancis'I. of Fraice.e This! armour was bought. by the late Sir Anthony. Rothschild. for £100, and sold, by him to the late Lord Ashburnham for £1000. Some years: afterwards it w/is `sold by Lord :Ashlurnham for £4000 to'a dealer in cnrios?. ties, who.re sold it within tweinty.four hours to" a wealthy customer for no less a sum than £17,000. The subsequent history of, the armour is still more remarkable. It was de. posited by its purchaser in the- Belgrave' Square Panitechnicon, and when that unfortu nate building. was- destroyed' by fire, the armour was buried beneath the ruins. Dug out of the debris, it was sold for a few pounds as old iron. ,It survived, however, even this degradation; for, after undergoing a process of renovation, it was subsequently sold 'to Mr. Spitzer,;of Paris, for £12,000, where it is said to be now on sale for £...

A Forty-year-old Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

A Forty-year-old Murder. About daylight nie 'day in 1840 a farmer on his way to Pittsburg, Pa., with a load of meat, passing a graveyard, heard :the sound of splitting timber. Curious to know the cause, he alighted, quickly climbed the graveyard fence and stole alorig in the direc tion' of the sounds. He had gone but a short distance when he discovered .a man stooping in an excavated grave and in the act of lifting a b6dy out of the coffin. The grave was that of a prominent young woman who had been buried only the day before. The farmer was so. filled with horror and indignation that before* the man could spring out he seized a club that lay near and dealt him a powerful blow on the head. The man neither uttered a sound nor moved after falling. The farmer became alarmed. Dropping into the grave himself he raised the grave-robber's body, and recognised the sexton of the old church, a man who stood high in the community. Fearful of the 'consequences, the farmer hurried home, and, tell...

SUDDEN FORTUNES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

SUDDEN FORTUNES. A certain barrister has owed professional suscess to the mere lucky, or let us say pro vidential, hazard which sent him out on a trip to China. Having lived three or four years in chambers without getting a brief, he was almost destitute, when a friend of his in the tea-trade offered him a free pas sage to Shanghai and back on condition of his transacting some piece of business there. On the passage out, the barrister had many. conversations with the captain, who chanced to have lately given evidence at Westminster in a lawsuit which was of great importance to the shipping interest. But he had been disgusted with the "stupidity," as he 'called it, of the judge and counsel in the case, when talking of maritime and commercial customs ; and he exclaimed, " Why don't some of thosei lawyers who mean to speak inshipping cases study our ways a little ?" These words struck the young barrister, who, after thinkiag,the matter over for a few days, resolved to'live at sea for a...

An Eccentric Public Benefactress. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

An Eccentric Public Benefactress. !The city of. Lyons has just fallen heir. to the large fortune of Mmine. de Cuzien, a lady eighty-nine years of age, who had long been known as the most eccentric. inhabit ant of that city. For thirty years she made it her business to embitter the lives of the various prefects and inayors by ingenious annoyances, the consequences. of which she escaped by her marvelloiis knowledge of law. Once, in. order to spite a neighbor whom` she disliked, she had a high tower erected from which she watched his every movement, ringing an immen?se bell at any hour of the night. On another occasion she invited a number of her acquaintances to meet M. Ducros, the Prefect of Lyons, at her house. When they' arrived they were led, with .great ceremony,' to a pig on a dunghill. All her eccentricities, -however, will be forgiven in view, of her beqiuests, amounting to 15,000,000 franes, which, however, will benefit those of her own sex only.

RATS. T : BT :'( AsSIL .' S L! . L" YPerhaps there is nothing tends ti keen tlhe average woman's wits about her more than rats. They engender a forethought, a look before-you-leap kind of phase into her every day life, which prevents a good deal of; the hurry and confusion that' would otherwise' attend the care of a large family. She.is. constantly on the look out for them, not altogether that she wishes to find them, but simply because of a something in her nature, a.kind of a desire to know the whereabeuts of every rat within a hundred yards. The amount of flour saved in a year by this feel ing is enormous. Ii places where there are no rats, a woman: rushes to the flour bag with a saucer in her hland, and in her hurry jerks the'flour which is in the folds all round the place. But just" notice the suspicious woman where rats are plenitiful.

Robbed of his Jest. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

Robbed of his Jest. SAMUIL FOOTE, the English dramatist and wit, once made a jest which cost him dear. It was after he opened the Haymarket Theatre on his own account, and was doing well in.the way of money-making. One evening, as he was walking alone down a street in the neighborhood of Oxford Road, he was accosted by a man, who very politely asked him if he would be so kind as to direct him to Newgate prison. Now it was utterly impossible for Foote to return a civil answer if he saw an opportunity for a jest, and few men could find material for a jest as readily as could be. He straightway an swered the man, "My good fellow, you have only to rob the first man you meet, and you'll find your way there easily." Unfortunately for Foote, it chanced that this man was a notorious footpad, who was on his way to visit, if possible, a pal who was in limbo. "My dear man," said the highwayman, who had originally not a thought of evil to. wards the gentleman whom he had honestly interrogated, ...

Cuban Courtship. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

Cuban Courtship. As a natural sequence to the restraint under which Cuban lovers are held, 'there are a great many small intrigues and innocent en deavors to circumvent the detectives. There are elegant glances, signals, fun-talk, and the sly interchange of notes. Then the iron guarded window,"instead of being'a protec. tion, becomes a great convenience. It is more than the front gate with us. She knows when he will pass by, and stands inside with a fair hand clasping the bars of her cage and waits for him. They stand there with the :iron between them and talk. Every day it is so, and if mamma wishes' to stop it, she must come and stand in the window also. There are other respects in which the young man has a hard time. He must come every day. He must, and she holds him to the strict letter of the law. He is bound to shbw, by every means in his power, that he holds all other women in contempt and detestation. He must not dance with any other, and had better not be caught holding on ...

How a Gay Gallant was Guyed by a Giddy Girl's Motheri Mri. H.: A. Van Fredenberg is one ;of the most famous of gallants. It is true he is a little past the age when gallantry is an ab sorbing passion, having scored 53 years~ but he is remarkably well preserved, and, were it not for his bald head, might readily pass for a young man. If there is a young lady to be interviewed, Van is always' ready for the task. His propensity in' that direction re cently got him into a situation th?? was any thing but agreeable. Miss Idlewild Gardner, the young lady who ran away from home and was arrested with her lover, was in Court.' The hearing was about to begin before Jidge'Cox.` ,'an was sitting by Idlewild, plying her with questions and smiling at her. At this moment the irate mother of the girl came in. Entering the bar her eye lighted on Van Fredenberg, who, all unconscious of her presence, was still chatting and smiling with the girl. The old lady was petrified with anger. She saw something ...

A Terrible Snow-Slide. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

A Terrible Snow-Slide. A monster snowv-slide destroyed and buried under twenty feet of snow the cabin in which Joseph and Sam Steele, George Morris, J. F. Thorn and J. T. Tate were living. The site of the cabin was up Conun drum Gulch, Colorado. The bodies of the five unfortunate miners were taken out the following Friday, after much hard work, as the snow was packed so solid that it had to be cut out in blocks with an axe. One of the men was found with his pipe in his mouth and his pocket-knife clasped in his hand, and the others in positions showing conclusively that they were instantly killed. Thorn had a dog that he prized very highly, that always made his bunk where the men slept, and of course everybody supposed the dog was killed. On April 14th, Mr. Bevere and Charles Johnson of Aspen were tunnel ling in the slide looking for a trunk contain ing valuable papers, when they heard the dog whine, and finally dug him out from under the bunk alive and well, but thin after his thirt...

An Exciting Event in Mormon SLife. i ot'long previous to the death of Brigham Young, one of the most effetive leaders of the early Mormon Church preceded him to the6world beyond the grave. In 1833, this early apostle was known ai John Mills, but soon after that period, for certain reasons, he had assumed another name. He was one of the twelve apostles originally appointed by Joseph Smith, and had been designated to lead a colony westward from the main Sbody at Kirtland, Ohio. With them, in the year named, he had made a settlement at Independence, in Jackson county, Missouri. Johin 'Mills was then quite a young man, full of enthusiasm in the Mormon faith, and one of the most popular preachers of the LatterDay Saints. So great was his fame, that whenever he addressed anaudience, ':he attracted crowds of Gentiles as well as of his Mormon brethren. ,The influence he was beginning to wield led 'to a violent opposition amongst the M-issouri people against the strange religion. ists who ha...
