THE PICTURE. CHAPTER II. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

STHE iPICTURE. ,,(Cenlinsu d.) I stared at the speaker, first stupidly, then incredulously; then with glowing conviettion that: the marvellous revelation was neverthe less true; then my uncle and I by one im. ipulse turned round and looked at the picture with a fresh gush of wonder; then we turned back to the Count again and glared; but found. no words. At last I managed to stammer out, "Be. trothed to ker, and not married I" "Strange, is it not ?" said the Count, with, a satirical 'shrug. "Permit me," said he, with ironical meekness, " to urge in my de fence that I have not married any one else." I said I could well understand that. "Pooh I" said my uncle; "he has been taken up with affairs of state." " That is true," said his Excellency.; S"yet, to be frank, my celibacy.is partly 'due to that fair person. She administerd' a lesson at a' time of, life. wheniinstruction, deeply engrayed, remain, in the mind for ever." "Tell us all about it," said myunole, " if itiisiot a sore subjec...

A Pointed Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

A Pointed Joke. A certain State School teacher was a very: fatherly sort of mani, particularly toward his young lady pupils. .Whenever' a young lady would ask a question,. he would place his hand lovingly on her head, and make con siderably more fuss than was necessary. Of 'course the girls got tired of this, and con spired to break him of his fatherly proclivi. ties. :One of them hit upon a plan. She :nrked ;up a nice little pin-cushion, had the pins inserted so that they would stand on their heads, point upward, and then adjusted the 'machine on the top of her head, covering:; it with 'just enough of her hair to hide it from view. , This done, she, left her seat, walked de murely up to the teacher's desk, stood a mo ment in his'august presence, and then, ii a. nmek and plaintive tone of voice, she asked' him whether Napoleon crossed the Alps on ice or on horseback. He raised' his hand over;her'head and soothingly said`: "Well, my dear little child---" We'll have to end his sentenc...

A Modern Version of an Old Song. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

A Modern Version of an Old Song. When other lips and other eyes Their tales of love shall tell, Which means the usual sort of lies You hear from every swell; When bored with every sort of bosh, You'd give the world to see A chap whose love you know will wash, Oh, then remember me.-&c. At a school, some time since, a boy was re citing a poem referring to some ancient mariner who insists upon living by the sea side, because he cannot dwell beyond old ocean's roar, but, unfortunately; '¶ grim palsy holds him to his bed." " What is grim palsy?" cried the schoolmaster, interrupting the boy. " Grim- palsy, sir; please, sir, it's his wife, sir I" answered the boy.

Catching the Speaker's Eye.: The celebrated assembly known' as the Long Parliamenit, which met for the first time at Westminster, on the 3rd of Novem ber, 1640, commenced proceedings at eight in the morning; but after some time the attend ance of members being found elack and ir regular, sundry devices were resorted to with the view of counteracting a movement which gave'tob much favor to early risers. At one time a roll, was called; and at another it was ordered that whoever did not come at eight o'clock, and be at prayers, should pay a he of one shilling. On the first morning after his order was made, there was an excellent .endance. The House was full, but prayers could not be said. Mr. Speaker himself was not there. At a quarter before nine in he walked. Prayers being over, Sir"Henry Mildmay congratulated the House upon the good effect of the order made on the-previous day, and said to the Speaker that "he did hope that hereafter he would come. in time," which mane the Speaker "...

Business men, and 'in fact everybody should, steep all letters and papers received through the post in water for three days ; after this operation, which is destructive to most ii flammable substances; they may safely be taken out and read. ' Post parcels should at once be carefully conveyed to the central police station, where they will be destroyed on paymient of a small fee. Cigars and cigarettes arriving in nailed or sealed up boxes should be submitted to an experienced locksmith and a certificated chemist, But, as the cigars themselves may be charged with explosives, better give up smoking, and make a judicious distribution of cigars and cigarettes among your: most particular -foes. When about to open: a porter, or champagne bottle, get an expert pyrotechnic to examine the corks and strings. On the report proving :satisfactory, cautiously pour the fluid into a glass. If it ...

Setting the Case out of Court. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

Settling the Case' out of Court. 'A laughable story comes from the London Courts of Common Law. Two costermongers claimed individually the ownership of a donkey, and as the case was one calling for friendly arbitration rather than judicial in terference, the presiding judge reodlnmended the suitors to go into the yard and settle the matter between them. His Lordship's kindly meaning seems to have been misunderstood, for in the course of half-an-hour or so, the " costers " returned into court, one of them with his eyes blackened and his face cut and bleeding; and the other in a state of excite ment betokening the authorship of his friend's injuries. The judge learned, when it was too late, that his advice had been ao cepted in its Whitechapel sense,: and that th'ey two men had belabored each other nntil,one of them resigned the donkey to save getting half killed. rS .r. ,i

Easily Understood. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

Easily Understood. It is stated by a writer, with regard to the walk of a horse, that he found that, "sup. pesing the off fore-leg to begin, it was im mediately succeeded by the near hind one, but the off hind-leg seemed not to follow the fore-leg at the same time as before; but this was nothing more than the alteration of the form of the body, when either the one walk or the other took place. For when the off hind-leg began, it was succeeded by the off fore being lifted up, and when the off hind. leg was set down, the near hind-leg was lifted up. But the off fore and the near hind legs seemed so connected together by the poise being on the same side, that it was the near hind-leg which appeared to begin the action. The poise being altered by the will of the horse, the off fore seemed tobegin, and not to be succeeded by the off hind-foot being set down at the same time after it as in the walk of the pace. The near hind-leg is in both the common walk and the pacing walk taken up afte...

She Smiled. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 July 1884

She Smiled. Within a private box she sat, a vision bright and fair It seemed to me Inever saw a heuty half so rare, Rich.jewels: glittered at her throat, and in her laughing eyes There glistened vagrant little gems from sum mer's cloudless skies. The comedy was on, and'all the people'rouni A me laughed At quip or jest; but my glad soul a draught of nectar quaffed So deep and so ecstatic that I minded not the play The vision in the private box drove grosser .thoughts away. Then, as I gazed, methought her eyes-twin orbs of light-met mine They sent me beams or precious gleams, half human, half-divine, And in my heart there softly rose a music sweet and low, That into happy lays of love changed all my songs of woe. Then suddenly a smile chased merry dimples o'er her face She bowed, and as she bent he head I felt infused with grace; Strange hopes arose within me-then I-saw, oh, misery ! That she had recognised the man who sat in front of me I!
