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

A "Bent" Joke.   " He isn't the sort of bird that you'd ad-   mire for his looks now," said a gentleman of our acquaintance, contemplating affection- ately an old cockatoo, that had evidently seen better days, but who now squatted de- murely in a corner of his cage, a feathered wreck. "He's lost one eye," continued his owner, sadly, " and his claws are all gone ; and he's so weak, though he don't think it, that we have to lift him on his perch, and when there he talks a lot of the biggest rot you ever heard in your life, till he tumbles off; but he's cute yet -- one of' the cutest birds you ever saw. "What do you call him?" we asked. "Before he was all broke   up we called him ' Pretty Poll,' but now we've christened him 'Tommy Bent,' "replied his owner.

ý,Soap a Dangerous Compound. *Some people are averse to the use of soap, .and it may come to a conviction on their part.that soap is dangerous. That it is dangerous now seems to be,: n established fact, if we can credit a frightful accident that took place a few days ago. The gentleman 'had just moved to a new house: with'.very steep stairs and a very short hall. He was arranging things in the upper rooms while his wife and the girl, armed with soap and its accompaniments, were renovating things below. They. had just finished the stairs, and were at work on the. six feet of rail in front of them, when his wife saw a mouse. She. landed on the top of a table, and, shaking her skirts madly, she let off a series of shrieks that would have shamed into silence- the shrillest engine whistle ever heard on a railway.. - At : that precise moment the gentleman happened to be incumbered with a basket of clothes-pins on one arm and a clock under the other. Of course he never thought of anything ...

FALSE PROPHETS. SOME OF THE PRINCIPAL IMPOSTORS OF ISLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 July 1884

"8OME OF THE PRINCIPAL IMPOSTORS OF ISLAM. The false prophets of whose coming Moham med'forewarned his disciples, and who have continued to appear at intervals from his time down to that of El Mahdi, had begun to fulfil the prediction even during his own lifetime. In 631 an impostor named Moseil man established himself on an oasis in the 'Arabian desert, announced himself as 'a prophet, and gained so many adherents that Mohammed was preparing to march against his rival in person when death overtook him. ' His favorite General, Khaled, however, took command of the expedition, and one hard. fought battle ended the reign and life of the pretender. About 150 years later another and more formidable impostor appeared in the south of Central Asia, whose career has become fa -miliar to English readers in the pages' of Moore's ghastly epic, "The Veiled. Prophet "df Khorassan." This was Hakim Ben Has , chem, nicknamed " M1okannah " (the veiled) Sfrom the veil of silver gauze he always wore. F...
