"Out Lights!" [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

'!Oat Lights 1"' ' All lights in the barrack rooms liave to, be turned out, and ashes thrown on the fires, to prevent blazing, when the bugler sounds " Out lights," and it is the duty of: the orderly sergeant: to go round the barrack square and, by looking up at:the 'windows, see that the order is obeyed. . One moonlight night Dennis Connor was orderly sergeant, and had had a pretty fair share of mess whisky, but managed to pull through all right till " Out lights" sounded. Away went Dennis round the 'barrack square, looking up at tlie windows. There seemed to be' more. windows than usual: to him, and at last he caught sight' of one where thelight still shone brightly. ?'?Out -lights 1" .roared Dennis ; then waiteda few moments, but the light 'was still there. "Out lights, No. 7 I" he roared, louder still, but without any effect.

Seven Stages of Drunkenness. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 6 June 1885

Seven Stages of Drunkenness. All the r"world's a pub, And'all the inbn and women merely drinkers.

And then the argu ments; Trying like Hercules with a wrathful front age To refuse one more twopenn'orth. Then the mystified, Full of strange thoughts, unheeding good ad vice, Careless ,of honour, sodden, thick, and gutt'ral, Seeking the troublcd repetition Even in the bottle's mouth ; arid hen quite jovial, In fair good humour w'hile' the world swims round, With eyes quite misty; while his frieUds him' cut, Full of nice oaths and awful bickerings ; And sd he ays his part.,, The sixth , age shifts Into the stupid, slipping, drunken man,, With "blossoms" on his nose and bleary eyed, His' ...

His Last Waltz. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885

His Last Waltz. A terrible example has been made in Tonqiuin. One of the special correspondents attached to the expedition now in the field was Camille Farcy, well-known as a brilliant writer.. He had long been connected with La France, one of the leading journals. The army which he was detailed to accompany was that of General Forgemol. This officer is a martinet, and entertains the most rigid ideas regarding discipline. Before the ex peditionary ;forces landed, he, in conjunc tion with General Vinoendon, concocted the following pledge, which all journalists were. obliged to sign : " I,-, promise upon my honour to transmit no information whatever either by telegraph or mail, or by any other means, without first havihg. submitted manuscript to the officer commanding the expedition, or to such other officer or officers. as he may delegate that power, to. I further agree that any failure to keep this pledge will expose me to the rigours of iartiila?I---" This document was signed -by a...

Railway Highwaymen. - Atthe switch five milesjlnorth of Little Rock a bullet went whizzing by the head of the.engineer of the south-bound night pas senger train and a cry came from the bushes- . "Stop the train, or you are a dead man I" The engineer glanced ahead to see if the switch was all right.

Ready Money. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885

Ready Money. : We listened to that genial rattle, De B attledaw, in blank amazement. "In debt l" said De Battledaw, "no doubt. The bank was good enough to place to my credit a couple of hundred last week, just to carry me smiling through Christmas. After Christmas the deluge II have come to the conclusion," he continued thoughtfully, " that there is nothing in the world like ready money, do you know, my boy, and for this simple reason. To-day is yours, to-morrow belongs to nobody. 'Give me health and a day,' says that old opti mist Emerson, ' and I will make the pomp of Emperors ridiculous I' I say, ' Give me health and half a sovereign always in my pocket and I will forget the past, rejoice in the present, and regard the future-" Here De Battledaw paused. The fact is, DeB. never had a future? "My dear fel low," he resumed, " what is the use of talk ing about the future t There is really no such thing. It is the mere bugbear of poets and moralists.

The Girl of the Period. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885

•The Girl ofthe Period. All that' girls are taughtiis to be pretty, and hide:?hfiir fiults, an i read love stories, and crochet, and makr sponge cake, until someone asks them to marry. So the poor creatures, through fear.tthat they will miss their chances and fail t,i marry, begin very early to pinch themselve. iu some places and pad themselves in others. Sometimes they wear clothing enuiigh to founder a ship, and. again it is pronounced "lov.ely " to appear without any to speak of. With the iujunc tion ringing in their ears, " Whateveryou do, be pretty," girls paint their lips and crock their eyebrows, and take opium to made their eyes soft, and arsenic to make their complex. ions clear. It was an unfortunate day when Paul or somebody. else said :that the joy of woman was her hair. What nameless and untold tortures has this appendiage to the human body not been subjected to .. It -has been' tilled with :"rats"and "mice," heroicaliy pulled out by the roots to make the forehead nigh,...

GUM ROT ON FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885

GUM ROT ON FRUIT TREES. Thisr~aisease is noticed by small excres cences forming on the apricot, prune and cherry tree. near the ground, and often ex tends up into the limbs. '!It is generally very prevalent after hieavyrai is, which extend late into spring. The'. blight in the pear and apple, curl-leaf in peach trees, and black knot on grape vines, are traceable to the same con ditions. This diseased state of fruit trees, which is becoming more frequent every year, invites the attack of certain insect pests, which would never occur if fruit trees were kept in a healthy condition. Some learned professors and many fruit-growers ascribe these disea~es to the: sudden changes of the atmospherel;otl6ers,. to insects and abrasions or wounds. The disease, however, is caused by'an unhealthy state of. the roots, induced by excessive moistire,.which, chills, the soils below the growing .point.?; This.1 condition oif the soil rots and ,scalds the' young roots -"nd so disarranges the. flow, of s...

BRIEF NOTES. Should you run out of taxle grease some busy time, mix two parts; of lard with' one each of black lead and wheat flour and apply. Sprinkle a little lime (air. slacked) over the potatoes in your cellar. It will tend to prevent rot, and purify the air of the cellar. A new remedy for the worms which de stroy house-plants is a number of sulphur matches placed in the flower pots, with their heads down. The experiment has been tried. with success. Pear, apple or plum trees which are large enough to bear, but do not, should be root pruned. CutbOff' afew' ftheliige'roots: This will check growth; and: beI likely ito cause fruitfulness. / The recent' poultAy 'show.in the Crystal ,Palace, London, was the largest ever held in -any country.

Lotta's Luck. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885

Lotta's Luck. Little Lotta Crabtree, the celebrated American actress, seems to have had her. heart hooked at last, and this time the circumstances are even more romantic than. the many entirely fictitious engagements that she has been every now and then credited with. It has always been a matter of wonder that Lotta has not been married long before this. She is a pretty little thing, full of life and vivacity, and what is not generally supposed, has a fortune estimated at about £100,000- This fortune has been securely invested, mostly in real estate, by her carful and entirely frugal mother, Mrs. Crabtree. It has, no doubt, generally been suspected that Mrs. Crabtree was the cause of Lotta's not marrying all these years. If this ever was the cause, that oppositions seems now to have been withdrawn, possibly be cause Mrs. Crabtree has at last found the suitor for her daughter'.lianid who suited her as well.
