TRAPPING AN HEIRESS. TOLD BY AN EX-DETECTIVE. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 11 August 1888
TRAPPING AN HEIRESS. &nbsp; TOLD BY AN EX-DETECTIVE. &nbsp; PART I. A few years ago I wee very well acquainted &nbsp; with a lot of impecunious men about the Strand, who 'lived upon their wits,' just as I am at this moment acquainted with &nbsp; similar men who exist in the same way in or about the same locality. The mode and &nbsp; style are different now, but the principle &nbsp; —or rather want of principle—is the same as it ever has been. &nbsp; They were a strange and merry lot of &nbsp; 'ne'er-do-weels,' mostly men of good &nbsp; education and superior families, who had somehow missed the right way in life. To &nbsp; decribe the first who come to my memory, &nbsp; briefly, I may say there was a 'retired' &nbsp; lieutenant from the Royal Navy whose &nbsp; titled cousin had a rent roll of about fifteen thousand pounds a year; a fully-qualified medical man, who was the son of a...
The Value of a Kiss. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 11 August 1888
The Value of a Kiss. She was weary, unhappy, and lonely, Her head and her heart ached as well, And a hopelessness, born of mute sorrow, Had caused the girl's bosom to swell; She was tired, so tired of thinking And planning things out for the best. And she knew that in vain were her longings For happiness, gladness, and rest. The children were tiresome and naughty, And tried both her patience and theirs— It seemed almost useless her trying To draw one load off from her cares. They were noisy, rebellious, and playful, And full of their mischief and fun ; Not one of them thought about 'governess' &nbsp; When once the day's lessons were done. She had wandered away from the schoolroom To be, for a time, quite alone ; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; And she knelt by the side of the window &nbsp; As she uttered a tired little moan ; For life was so loveless and dreary, And nobody seemed much to mind How she managed her noisy young charges; It was hard and, to h...

HOW BISMARCK WORKS THE PRESS. (MR. STEAD IN THE PALL MALL GAZETTE.) No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 18 August 1888
HOW BISMHAROL WORKS THE PRESS. (a?tR. STEAD IN Th~ PAL ? HALL GAZETTE.) ho. 2. The most marvellous example of the re anilts which can be attained under the r Gorman system of press nobling at home and of journalistio idlotoy abroad was the European scare produeesr by the alleged concentration of Russian troops on the German frontier. As a matter of fact, there was no such concentratlon. The Russian Government had moved 4,000 f troops from Moscow to Warsaw. That was the solitary and slender substratum of fact, which was of oourse perfectly well known to the German war office. But it so a happened that at that time Prince Bies marok, for'ressons beat known to himself, was anxlon o secure, with the moral saneti9n of kopo and the unanimous vote o of the Rloehbcag, the addition of 700,000 men to the German army, and also to oompel Austria to add several millions so her military expenditure. As n Europe was in a condition of profound peace the operation did not seem easy. To genin a howev...

FRAGMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 18 August 1888
FRAGMENTS. AN ancient duchess, 'when George the Third was King,' more famed for arieto oratio pride than for personal charms, had her osrriage stopped in the street one day by a dust-carr. This was more than her lady chip could bear; so, loaning her somewhat ancient elbow on the door of her carriage, the pointed to her crest on the panel of her coach, and thus addressed the unfortunate duetman:-' Man I don't you eee my arms an this carriageo' ' Yea, mum ! I does,'said the impertinent pnlverieator,' ' and a pair of coarsoe arms they are.' A SoorrIsa barrister, conducting a water trnst suit before an English judge, re. poatedly prononunced the word water as 'watter.' The judge at last lost patience, and asked the learned gentleman if he espelled water with two t'e. 'Na, no, my lord,' was the reply, 'we dinna spell water wi' twa t's in Scotland, but we spell mainnera wi' twa n'e.'

Brown's Creek, near Blayney, N.S.W., 16th June, 1888 -Two years ago, after being attended by different doctorse, I went into the Bathurst Hospital to go under an opera tion. The doctors tapped what they called a tumour on my liver. After getting a little stronger I left the hospital, but the tumour began to fill up again faster than before. I wrote the doctors it was filling, and they told me the only thing they could do was to have the tumour cut out. Rearing of " Warner's SA?v Core," I began its use, and have taken seven bottles, with the happy result that I am entirelyoured. It is now six months since 1 stopped taking the medicine, and there is no sign of the tumour returning. Mae. TaHOMAs MoLoNI.
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 18 August 1888
GBGIOULTURAL NOTES8...: The continued dry weather is beginning to boe. felt in nearly all parts of the colony; South Gippeland, perhaps, is. the only n exception; while north of the Dividing n Range in pariloalar the theme of convereas Zion is the wonderfully dry, but cold, t winter. The very opposite are the reports y from some of the GIppsland distriots. There have been no heavy rains at Nhill this a winter. The figures quoted by our Lower Avoea correspondent show that only 3jin. of rain have fallen in that distrleo since the beginning of the year, as compared with 71in. for the corresponding period of 1887. Around Eahuan and aeross to the Goulburn Valley, the ground is as hard as in mid. summer; still the crops and grass both wear a green and healthy appearanoe. At Bairns. dale the winter has been a most nnusually dry one. No rain worth speaking of has fallen for eight months. Numbers of the people are oarting water for domestic purposes, and cattle, too, have to be driven daily ...
GARNISH. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 18 August 1888
GARNISH. Week after week questions flow into the pages of "The Queen" desiring instruction in the science of housekeeping. It has often struck me what terribly dreary lives most of the querists must lead, if they try to live up to their own questions. Certainly amonget their weekly items they never think of a place for "garnish," and yet without that same how very cold and blank life would be. Truly they are not singular, far from It, alas ! for only too many of us utterly ignore the dear old-fashioned word, if not where we are concerned, yet most certainly in our treatment of others. Now that this is a mistake, very little thought on our part would speedily prove. We all know the difference a little taste and care make in the preparation of our food, and how much more palatable is the plainest fare daintily served than the most reoh-robd cookery if carelessly or untidily prepared The same rule holds good in the daily life, and no one should be more alive to the fact than our housek...
THE LADIES' COLUMN. ABOUT BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 18 August 1888
THE'R LADILS' COLUMN. ABOUT BREAD. BY VIVA. !' Broad is the staff of life," says Swift in his ' Tale of a Tab." This saying has been repeated until it has the force of an axiom. and the woman who has breakfasted cff i white bread and butter firmly believes th* t she has been taking in a supply of the "staff of life." Wheat contains all the necessary elements for the support of the human frame, and life may be continued or wheat alone for an indefinite period, with the solo additions of good water and air. But before wheat becomes white bread it undergoes a transformation that robe it of almost two thirds of its efficacy. Swift alludes not to white "bread, but to broad made of whole meal or unbolted wheat. Whole meal bread is the staff of life. A grain of wheat con tains, in its natural esate, fourteen parts of water, about neyenty of carbonates or fat. making food, about fourteen parts of nitrates or muscle-making food, and about two parts of phosphates or food for the brains and ne...
Old Age. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 18 August 1888
Old Ago. A medical m.n compares an old man to an old waggon; with light loading and carefo usage it will last for years, but one heavy load or sudden strain will break it and run it for ever. Many people reach the age of fifty or sixty or seventy measurably free from most of the pains and infirmities of age, cheery in heart and sound in health, ripe in wisdom and experienceo with sympathies mellowed by age and with reaseonable pros. pects and opportunities for continued useful. noes in the world for a considerable time. Let such persons be thankful, but let them also be careful. An old oonestitution is like an old bone-broken with ease, mended with difficulty. A young tree bends t tthe gale, an old one soaps and falls before the blast. A single hard lift, an hour of heating work, an evening of exposure to rain or damp, a severe chill, an excess of food, the unusual indulgence of an appetito or passion, a sudden fit of anger, an improper dose of medicine-any of these or similar thing...
