The little girl replied : "I'll have her in a minute !" In a' few mo ments the child appeared in the parlor, and, sitting by the fire place, laid the cat on a rug.

Once during the evening the cat started, toward the doorway, but its owner hastily closed the door and sent it back by the fire.

But One Pair of Stockings to Mend To-night. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 April 1887
But One Pair of Stockings to Mend To-night. An old wife sat by her bright fireside, Swaying thoughtfully to and fro, 'In an ancient chair whose creaky frame Told a tale of long ago; While down by her side, on the kitchen floor, - Stood a basket of worsted balls-a score. The good man dozed o'er the latest news, Till the light of his pipe went out, ,And, unheeded, the kitten, with cunning paws, Rolled and tangled the balls about ; Yet still sat the wife in the ancient chair, Swaying to and fro in the firelight glare.. But anon a misty tear-drop came In her eye of faded bliie, Then trickled down a furrow deep Like a single drop of dew; I So deep was the channel, so silent the stream, The good man saw naught but the dimmed eye beam. Yet he marvelled much that the cheerful light Of her eye had weary grown, SAnd marvelled he more at the tangled balls; So he said in a gentle tone: " I have shared thy joys since our marriage vow, Conceal not from me thy sorrows now.", ,Then she spoke of. th...
How Mrs. Langtry Fences. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 April 1887
How Mrs. °Langtry Fences. Mrs. Langtry is not an egotistical woman. She is hardly conscious of the beauty of face and form which has been the talk of two hemispheres. Her triumphs as an actress have not made her proud; but there is one thing of which she is vain. It is her skill with foils. The redoubtable Senac'says,she is the most clever feminine fencer he has met with. Servants mnove aside bits of the luxuriant furniture of the great music-room - ma dame's salle d'armes. The rich folds of Chinese yellow silk which separate the re ception-room from the" music-room are drawn close, sunlight streams in the low French windows and sends innumerable tiny shaftsi through the costly yellow laces which screen them. Madame's : audience.,is always feminine. "Madame is,: coming," says madame's maid, and in'another moment a material bit of shapely loveliness enters. " Bon jour, madame." " Bon jour, Monsieur Senac." The little cap goes'twirling on one of the low divans, the crimson cloak parts...

A Phrenological .Curio. Some time ago a back.block farmerof a:an enquiring turn found a large turnip ' in his field of the shape-of a man's head.and withi tefe'iefismblince of the 'fea uresf ' man. Struck with curiosity, he had a cast ipade of it, andtsent the cast to a phrenologist, stat ing that it was i.ken from the head of a celebrated colonial statesman, and requested an opinion thereon. After sitting in judg ment it was reported that it denoteda mnan of acute mind and. deep research; that he had the organ of quick perception and-also of perseverance, with another that indicated credulity. The opinion was transmitted- to the owner of the cast, with a letter request. ing as a particular favor that he would send them the head. To this he politely replied that he would willingly do so, but he was prevented, as he and his family had, eaten it the day before with their-mutton-for din. ner.

Curious Ways of Making a Living. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 April 1887
Curious' Ways of Making a Living. What a volume could be written upon this subject if one had. the time, and the scope, and the humor l: But it would be almost 'as long as the book written by some German -which took three years, night anhd day, to-read.? n M in all agesand stages of civilization have found the struggle of life a, hard one. Your ordinary man with the gift of perseverance can, by dint of un ceasing industry and economy, manage to keep himself on the surface of this planet for his allotted time in a tolerable way for the first ten or twelve years, and afterwards, perhaps, in comparative comfort and ease. That' is when 'there are not too many ordinary men with the same gifts of perse verance and industry and economy-as in China-to compete with him. When there are, he finds life a hand-to-mouth game at the best-with very little in the hand to carry to the mouth at times. The man with a little spark of genius then comes to the fore. You can find him doing'so in the sculpt...

Hungry Anaxamander. Anaxamander Mahaffey stood at the cor ner.f o one of the main streets, watch ing with wistful eyes the great seething tide of 'humanity surging to and fro,. especially to. Anaxamander was only) a newsboy, a tiny, ragged waif, with large dark eyes like a fawn's, and a dark ecru patch.'on the seat of his trousers. Oh, how hungry he was ! The long, long day had passed and he had -eaten nothing but seventeen b.th buns .aid two mutton pies.;: and yet the children of the rich weie'revelling in all the good and wholesome stuff of:the season. Anaxamander was trying, oh i! so hard, to sell the bundle of papers that he tried to' cover from the driving rain by hiding them beneatli his ragged jacket. It was very pathetic. Suddenly an old gentleman turned the corner grid ran against Anaxamander, kniock ing him in the gutter and out of time. He was a very stout old gentleman, with-a white waistcoat, a broad-brimmed hat. His smile was benevolent and he nodded so pleasantly to A...

Rather ,Rough. There was a missionary concert at a Rich mond church the other evening, and among other things was a paper on missionary work read by a young lady. When she had finished the leader of the meeting said " We will now sing ' Hallelujah! 'tis done.'" Whereat everybody smiled. "Oh, thank you, dearest William !" effu sively exclamed his young wife when he pre sented her with cash for a new-fashioned head-gear. "You are a Platypus." Then, noting the expression of pain that sprang to his manly brow: " No, no! I mean you are a duck, Bill."
