His One Consolation. "Can you give me a drink, madam ?" begged the tramp. "I can give you a drink of water," she said. "Well," he said, after some consideration, " water'ill do, if you can give me an old beer bottle to drink from. I'm a poor and lowly wreck, madam," he concluded with pathos, "but, thank heaven, I have still left the remnants of what was at one time considered the finest imagination in the country where I was born."
Ossy[?] [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 March 1887
Ossyl Bertie, when in Mhelbr.unre, was the mashiest dude I ever knew. You ' never saw him out of his lavenders an i patents, but in spite of his effeminacy lie wa a bold rider at home on the station, and he had a manly love of horses. There was a butcher ini the vicinity who rode a fine bay horse that Bertie coveted greatly for its splendid.action and grand pace. So he made overtures to the butcher, and after a lot of bargaining, he secued the prize. When he had paid inp he mounted. eagerly to try a canter, when, to his surprise,t the horse refused to inove. Coaxing, petting, and patting were of no avail; the.whip was cqu-lly useless. "Look here, don't. you know?" he said to the butcher, ' it's a swindleg ; he won't stir a hoof." . " Not without the basket," answered the butcher; "here, take this:' And before he -knew it the basket was thrust into his dainty hand, and off shot the horse like an arrow. That's how the elegidt Bertie came to be seen by ..the Do Browns and the O'Jones g...

. A Woman's Memory. A woman in one of the Ballarat drapers' abops was in a quandary on last Friday fore noon. She had too many strings on .her fingers. "Now," said she, "that string on my forefinger is to remind me to get four yards of baby ribbon, and. that red string there is so that I won't forget to call at the stove shop and get the wash-boiler that's being mended.' The piece of yellow ribbon is for powdered sugar for cake for the festi val, and the yarn on my thumb is, lemme s-e-, is to get four sk-ins of domestic yar for socks for the boys. What puzzles me is this other piece. Seems though it was somethin' about givin' the horse some dinner somehow, -but I don't just remember. Oh, dear me I How-nervous it makes me I Iwant twelve yards of unbleached cotton cloth and two reels of thread..

The Naughty Little -Girl; She is cunning, she is tricky, I am greatly grieved to tel',' And her hands are always sticky With. chocolate caramel; Her dolly's battered features, Too, tell of many a frantic hurl; She's the terror of her teachers That naughty little girl. She dotes upon bananas, - And she smears them on my knees,; And she peppers my Havanas, And she laughs to hear.me sneeze:; And she steals into my study, And she turns my books awhirl, And her boots are always muddy That naughty little girl.

A Fight With Convicts.:. All was quiet in the house,.but. there was still light in one of the upper front windows. I saw, with a throb of joy, that it was one which Young used as a sort of private study ; he kept his papers there, and often sat in it alone, especially at evenings; and it could be reached from the roof of the verandah'.:'-- Thad feared he would have .gone to bed; -and wondered all the way hiowI :could get speech with him without alarming the house. The window was open, the blinds up, and I could see him, as he sat a'table writing-the same badnidoine' head with the curling brown locl the same face, the same attitude, only it sewied to me that he looked older, colder, and sterner. " However, this was no time to think; IDhust get over into the garden. All was per f~itfly still. The cook must have kept her pro cfiiih as regards the dogs.

TO CURE A STUMBLING HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 April 1887
TO CURE A STUMBLING HORSE. Some good horses, says the Pittsburg Stock. man, are addicted to stumbling while walk ing or moiing in a slow trot. A well versed ,ecl?ar1. ";statthat thereaere two causes that `woiuld:.ii teind to proiJne. this faulty action; one a general' weakness in the muscular system, such as would be noticed in a tired, horse ; the other,. a -weakness of the exterior muscles of the 'leg, ·broiught about by carrying too much weight on the toe. To effect a cure, he adds, lighten the weight of each front shoe about four ouIces; have the toe of the shoe made of steel in stead of iron ; it will wear longer; have it rouhded off about the same as it would 'bie when a third is ivorn out' in order to pre vent tripping; allow one week's rest; have the legs showered for a few. minutes it a time with cold water through a hose, in or-. der to create a spray ; then rub dry briskly from the 'chest down to the foot. Give walking exercise daily during the week for 'about an 'hour ti...
About Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 April 1887

He didn't differ much fi -m the two-legged pugilist of modern days, o ly he was more of a gentleman than to walk ui to a man and shake hands with him, and 'then haul off and ?break his face. He was awful indifferent too. It made not the slight, st difference in the world where he got his grub so long as he got it. And indepen dent-why, he used to go around: like as if he owned the'town. One day hw wna l'afing around and he happened to'drtip into a pub. The publican had a big Newfoundland dog, so he shut the door and went and got him, and dropped him on Nero's back--(l forgot to mention, that my dog's name was Nero.)
