Hopes to Break Him In. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

street employed a new assistant yesterday, and the present indication is that he will do the same thing over again to-day.' " ' hat do you suppose that fellow did? said the proprietor to a Life reporter. "Dont know? Of course you don't. " Well, when he'd been here about half an hour an old lady with gold specs came in and asked for a reel of forty cotton. I looked a minute later, and that idiot had fiveboxes on the counter that he had emptied, and was working away at the sixth for dear life. I knew that was an awfully stupid way to find the size, but I thought I'd let him work and he'd learn more than I could tell him. Pretty soon he came to me and said: " 'Mr. Blank, there's only thirty-eight reels of white cotton there, and that lady wants forty. What'll I do ?' " I told him to go and sit down and put his head to soak, and then I went and gave the woman her reel of cotton. She was getting in an awful hurry, and I don't think she'll come again. "The next customer was a young lady w...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. BALAATi.-There is no particular harm in riding a hobby if you don't take up the whole road with it. A CLERGYMAN asks-" Can a man be a Christian and; at the same time a successful 'business, man'?" He can if he advertises 'largely......: ..... CATERER asks-" Are, late . suppers bad if properly eaten ?" Of coui'se not.' The suppers are good enough. They are too good, in fact. It's the dyspepsia that's bad. BERTIE, Coliins street.-Fish is good brain food, except in instances when it doesn't find anything to assimilate with. COUNTRY CousIN.-Yes; we believe creased pants are fashionable, and rough-edged paper coming min. But we have heard nothing about frayed cuffs becoming a craze. SAD LESSO?s hits us with the following : He took two fingers brfore he went, To brace his nerves a bit; On hunting woodcock was he bent, And hunted away with grit : But the liquor muddled his whirling brain, As liquor will often do, And the gun went off in a moment vain, And it took...

An Obdurate Washerwoman. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

An Obdurate Wasnerwoman. All .things considered. washerwomen are the most troublesome of the " small fry" of duns. They are continually clamouring for their dues, and they are somewhat dangerous persons to offend. I once was acquainted with a younger son, whose stock of linen had degenerated (from too frequent visits to "my uncle") to one solitary shirt.: It is true he had ordered a fresh supply on credit from his hosier. but they had not yet been sent home. He was consequently under the disagreeable neces sity of lying in bed all the morning till this solitary shirt could be washed and dried for his evening use. One evening he was engaged to dine where a very pretty woman, and rich in the bar gain, to whom he had .long been paying his attentions, and 'successfully, was to be pre sent. The hour was drawing. nigh, the diner-out made all his toilet except one in dispensable article-a shirt. Enveloped in a "seedy" dressing-gown, he sat shivering with anxiety, waiting his washerwoman's ...

A soft hand indicates -:E fervent but fickle lover, while a hard hand ji denotes a long-enduring though possibly smouldering love. A spatula hand, wherein the tips of the fingers are broad and the tops flat, denotes inconstancy, desire for change, and love of locomotion. It is found in jockeys and colonists. A band with coni eally-tipped fingers indicates inspiration, in stinct, Bohemianism and generosity. A hand with squarely-built finger-tips shows order and arrangement, particularly when the joints throughout are prominent. A scientific hand, irregular to a marked de gree, the joints lumpy and highly developed -altogether a malformed conglomeration of knots and twists. This sort of hand is in variably small, while the analytical. hand is large. The hand of the idealist is the most symmetrical of all, and the most useless in every sense. A supple hand indicates generosity. A hand the...

Saving Fuel. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

Saving Fuel. The weather in Northern Queensland is so hot that the settlers bake their damper on the fences. "What are you doing with this tomb stone ?" was asked of an old fellow who stood near a large stone slab that lay near his hut. " Wall, I'll tell yer. Tu'ther day me an' Ab . that's my son-wuz comin' through a graveyard, an' as. this here rock didn't seem ter be doin' no good, we fetched it along." " What service is it .to you ?" "It saves us the. trouble of chopping wood." "How ?" "Ding it, ain't you got no sense ? We put it out here in the sun an' boil meat on it. ¥We ken brile a hole side o' beef at wunst." It is usually unmarried women who write on the subject of " how to manage a hus band." People nowadays should .be compelled to have their name written on their gate. A burglar last week made a great mistake in actually trying to burgle in the house of a Mrs. Taoroughgood, who gently but forcibly detained him by his coat-tails, and. though he kicked and. struggled, held ...

An Incident. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

an Incident, We sat within a railway car, A man named.TJoes and I, While I fond glances sent afar Unto a damsel nigh ; And thus by optic telegraph The trip was swiftly whiled : Her glances mingled with our chaff, And once I thought she smiled. " By Jove I" said I to Mr. Jones, My new conquest to air, In most enthusiastic tones, "Yon maid is passing fair, And ever since I sat me here She's wafted glances pert..-,.. She's pretty, and it would appear She is inclined to flirt." Said Mr. J., " Nay, think you so ?". (I know not well the youth.) " Well, if you say so, we will go, And speak to her, in sooth." Sn over to her side.we sped, My mind with sweet words rife ; And Jones, the villain, blandly said ' " Aw-Mr. Smith-my wife."

For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

The styles likely to be worn during the com ing autumn will be mostlyshort jackets or man tles, the former of liht materials and the latter of plush and velvet. Fabrics, in real ity, vary but very slightly; plush, silk, satin, cashmere, velvet-brocade, and woollen goods forming the principal ones, all of course having new and pretty designs shown in each ma terial. The favorite colors are to be black, garnet, rseada, grey, bronze, and mahogany, in a variety of shades, salambo, a pale blue grey, seal-brown, dahlia, and heliotrope. Woollen fabrics' are. principally checked or striped, those with very fine plaid designs will be much in vogue for ordinary out-of-door costumes. Other than plaids are to have wide 'tripes of one color, with hair-lines of various bright tints interspersed amongst them. Pompadour-brocade silk, with an over-dress of white lace, is now very popular for the evening costume of a young lady. The bodice is cut round in the neck, with bead-edging. The sleeves are t...

INTELLIGENCE OF DUMB ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

INTELLIGENCE OF DUMB ANIMALS. If any one has an idea that the dumb animalb of the farm do not very quickly learn the peculiarities of voic: and gesture of every person who frequeu s t:.e yarIs or stable, lit may as well disabuse Lis mind of this belief. Animals discern lte intent and temper of other animals a7 far as they can see the rx prtssion of the eye, and in the case of horses as far as the position of the head and ear can be detected. Thus, if a horse moves toward another horse, or for that matrer, toward a cattle beast or a pig, with head t xt, nied and ears thrown back, the animal approached needs no other warning than this to induce it to move out of the way;. This may be called mere instinct or not, yet it is more that instinct, for this is defiqed by Webster at being an "unconscious, involuntary, un reasoning prompting to action." Whaley says ' an instinct is a propensity prior to experience, and independent of instructiov,." Now, in the case of farm animals, the approac...

TREATMENT OF MILCH COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

TREATMENT OF MILCH COWS. It is common for farmers who have a num ber of cows to dry them off after eight, ten or at most twelve months of the greatest flow of milk has passed. This is good policy for those tnus situated, as a cog giving only three to five or six quarts daily is worth more to fatten than to keep for what milk she will give. But.for a small family, where but little milk or butter is required, a good far ro' cow may prove a desirable requisition. A really good cow may be milked two years; or even three or four, with careful manage ment, and givenearly.a constant mess during that time. , It is the dain on the cow from the calf sheo is carrying. that nccessarily shortens the milking period, however good the feeding.

On the Chimney. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

U* On the Chimney. . Twas when I was courting Kate that the ac cident I am going to tell you about happened. But for that same accident I don't think Katie an' I would be man and wife this day, for you see my father was set agin' the match, Katie being only a laborer's daughter, while he him self was foreman in the mills, getting good wages and thought a good deal of by his em ployers. An' if it wasn't for Katie, I don't think I'd be here now to tell' you about it, for 'twas she that saved my life through hitting upon a plan that never once came into the heads of me or my comrades-ay, or of those that you'd have thought would know better than any of us. I was brought up to my father's trade, hav ing been taken, when young, by a brother of my mother's, a master bricklayer living in the town. When my uncle died I came to see my father, and, finding that they were at work on the new buildings on the mills, I looked for employment there, an' got it at once. Lisgar van is a flour mill, a...

DO NOT FEED GARBAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887

DO NOT FEED GARBAGE. The best veterinarians discourage the feed ing of partially-decayed pot?ioes, turnips, cabbage leaves and all similar substances to stock of any kind. There is no econo:my in the practice, for the nutr.tive plopertics are destroyed by decay. Not only that, baut ihere is a liability or poisoi.ing tee system or producing indigestion to such an extent as to result in colic -or diarrhoea, and in case of cows with calf there is d,ngcr .of producing abortion. It is far better to pick up the decayed roots and vegetables and burn . r bury them than to suffer the cattle to eat such garbage.
