Fables from Æsop. VII. THE FOX AND THE CRANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885
Fables from Esop. VII. THE FOX AND THE CRANE. A fox one day;,hospitably ink: lined, sent ah; invitation to his neighbour the crane (Memo.;-The paper was ink lined, not the fox) .to come and. breakfast with him, no doubt ultimately with the intention of break 'fasting on, and not with him. The innocent crane got himself up in his Sunday-go-to: meeting clothes, polished his beak beak-ause he expected plenty of maxilliary work, and arrived at the fox's abode, having ren-ard all the way; but this astute quadruped, just as(t)ute expect, had provided soup in a souperlatively flat dish, which the crane,-as you'd soupose, thought dishgraceful; for, whereas the fox could lick it with ease and his'tongue, the crane's long bill (like all bills) was always in the way, but never in the soup. However, he expressed no surprise at this soup rise; but, some time after, invited the fox to supper, which he suppervised him self. It consisted of capers in a long bottle; and when the fox found he wasn't ...

What is it All About ? [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885
-What is it All About? ? Very few peoplelunderstand the mission in, life of the sb-called '".society" paper. It panders to the vanity of the few who,.are blessed with a plentiful supply of this world's goods, and it contains a good deal of valuable information on subjects which would other wise remain a deep mystery. Glancing over the columns of one last week, I was startled to observe this interesting item of news: '" Chemisettes and plastrons of tulle gauze or embroidered prape are most'fashionable forerevening .wear. They are also made in goldlace, adorned witheembroidery repiesinht ing flowers." Now, this just shobws youitlihe actual value of. a' societypi?er.

A Poser for the Official. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885
A Poser for the Official. A good story is told of a certain irominent railway official, who is equally renowned for his ability to make and take a joke. A rail way employe, whose home is in the country, applied to him for a pass to visit his family. "You are in the employ of the, Govern ment 7" inquired the gentleman allud?kdto. "Yes." * " " You receive your pay regularly ?" cc "Yes." : . 1 "Well, now ;suippose you were working for a famner' instead of the Government, would you expect your employer: to take out his horses every Saturday night and carry you home 7" This seeeii?eda poser, but:iV wasn't. -"'NoO,' said the man .promptly,' I ibuld not expect; that;. but; if; the farmer had his horses out, and,was going my way, I should call him a veryimean fellow if he would not let me ride."-' .

Bosh, Bubbles and Bunkum. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885
Bosh, Bubbles and Bunkum. BY YJEiPF AEBR. i(From Australian t1t-Bits.) Another Queen's Birthday has come and gone. I drank her health a good many.times ; in fact,:too many; and at every drink I murmured, '. The Queen, God bless her," and she deserves to be blest. . Under her benign rule. we :have lived contented and happy; Those that haven't have probably only them selves to blame. Only under such a rule as hers could Australia have become great, and produced such men as Dalley, Jack Robert son, Graham Berry, Service, Sargood, and last, but not least, the editor of Tit-Bits. I therefore, again repeat a toast that all good men. and true have. nodoubt drank in foam God blessiheir I" 'i " iA-friend' of ine'', pbssessing immense wealth, *ade in mniingaspeculation, speak-' ing. of societyj here,,;aysthat:Mellbourne is the nost inhospitable city in the6ifl d.~ e, has "inst charming family, consisting.oftwo' biht iintelli t grlsantwo well-edu cat~id sois, adalthough living:lii a fashion ab...
A Gentle Hint. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 13 June 1885
A Gentle Hint. I heard a gentleman remark the other day that you could always tell a gentleman by the way he blows his nose. This may be con sidered a society item. It is not my way of ascertaining whether or not a man is a gentle man.. His definition, however, reminded me of a good story told of a member of the'house. He had often been offensive to those who sat next to him by his' manner of blowing his nose with his fingers and expectorating in a reckless manner under the desks. In the language of my society critic, he was no gentleman. His neighbor happened to be a gentleman' of great heartedness, and carried a handkerchief. He was excessively annoyed and was often divided in his mind as to whether he should pull thehandkerchief or 'insult his tormentor. ' Finally h! decided on the more peaceful course, and, purchasinig a dozen good handkerchiefs,-placed themin the no gentleman's desk. As it was just before the Queen's Birthday, the no gentleman was not surprised or offended. He ...
