The Grave of the Suicide (WHO THOUGHT BETTER OF IT). [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 July 1884
The Grave of the Suicide (WHO THOUGnHT BETTER OP IT). My eye grew as dull as a- half-scallop'd oyster, And soonwould :my death in the Age have S rejoiced her; So to Albert Park lake -- for no waters are moister I hurried to drown both myself' and my woes. Down life's sunny stream many seasons'I'd floated, Till pleasures now bored me on 'which I had doted, So I vowed that my death should by lovers be quoted Where the: 'pale sentimental asparagus grows. 'Alas I" I exclaimed, with a half-broken S hiccup, . " One soft crumb of comfort no more can I pick up; . . My sorrows arei mixed, as it were, in a tea cup, Without any sugar to take off the taste." Kind fortune invisibly often stands by us When sorrows are often inflicted to try us, And now on the roof of the famous Scotch pie house, The blinker-eyed goddess was' luckily placed. She kindly assured me my views were mis taken; That really by Polly I was not forsaken ; So I walked back to town and quickly had taken The train to return to...

He hadn't got any. The unsaucoeBsaful suitor of a witty Ameri. can girl, who was not only a great bore, but very stupid to boot, in his despair determined to go to California, and called one evening on the obdurate lady of his choice to announce his intention, which he did thus: "I am going to California on the first steamer, and going to the mines, and going to get rich. If I can't get rich-any other way, I shall go on the highway with my pistols, and when a miner comes along with a bag of gold, I shall blow out his brains and take his gold." "'No, John, don't do that," said the young lady; "take his brains 1"

Public Morality and its Protectors. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 July 1884
Public Morality and its Protectors. A certain legal gentleman has made a strange discovery, His moral nature has been shocked, 'tis feared beyond recovery. Our parks and gardens, so he says, are used for assignation, And says what happens there at night: ex ceeds imagination. There's not'a doubt this' moralist is capable ofjudgingr And what he knows of sinful ways there's certainly no fudge in. Opinions such as his have weight when given without pelf ; We- feel quite sure this moral man ne'er courted late himself. He never in the evening cool sat by his char mer's side, And heard the postal clock strike: twelve as' sweetly there he lied; He never was a naughty man, nor with the ladies tarried;. He thought such weakness infra dig. till after he was married.' How it would jar his moral nerves to e'er receive a fee From Billy Nutts, the magsman,.or some gay immoral she. He coildn't take it, no, not he; he hopes to, gain his laurels By poking round our public parks and culti vating'mora...

Revelations of a Fashionale Tailor of Melbourne. In the course of a lengthy chat with a well iknbwn fashionable tailor of Melbourne, sonime interesting particulars were gleaned as to the frivolities of fashion as peculiar to the men. Much has been said against the absurdities of female dress, but far more astounding are the vagaries of:male attire.. " Of course you are aware," said our friend, "it is no secret that corsets are much worn by the men. They always have been as far back as I can remember, though of late years, with the advent of aesthetes and dudism'in general, the fashion has been on the increase The ultra dudes nearly all wear stays, bu. there are others too who are by no means dudes, or especially effeminate either.
