Her Stolen Brains. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 9 April 1887

Her Stolen Brains., BY C.B.M. On the 1st September, 1884, Grace Tyrrell finished a story called " My Darling's Hand," which, on the evening of the 1st, she read aloud to the family circle, consisting of her mother "and Edgar Price, who declared the story the best that Grace had ever written. Partly ow ing. to this encouragement; and the fact of a quarrel with Edgar afterwards, -Grace was .enabled to be quite positive, about the date b.pon which she had written "My Darling's Hand. 'The cause of her disagreement with Edgar was his simple request that their marriage might take place without delay. She had risen, M.S. in hand, and said- "Eddy, you're a good fellow; you always appreciate my writing; you don't burst out laughing at a sad part, or break into a dismal groan at a funny one, but you know that I don't mean to be married until I have secured some sort of a position." '"Progress ih literature is very slow,", Edgar meekly suggested. - "Yes, I know; but I mean to succeed if I wait...

Judgment of iEyes. "Wh it do you consider the most beautiful eyes? " was asked. - " Well, they're very scarce," said the old gentleman, letting his eyes-wander over the half dozen faces before him. "Not one here has got the ideal eye. It's a perfect violet, or a velvet brown, as soft and gentle as a dog's ::Violet eyes are ver rare I I us:a deyes,: ut ge nine purple eyes. Babies ave them sometimes, but 'I've "seen only one or two with them, and never a man. They denote too perfect a character for that-gentleness, intelligence, devotion and boundless faith. These virtues aren't often found in one person. "Brown eyes ? Yes, they are 'plentiful, and physically, perhaps, the most beautiful eyes in the world. I think they come next to violet eyes when they'are light enough to read feeling in them. Dark brown eyes are too deep.. They seldom mirror the heart feelings, but are fine to look at."

How a Life Insurance Agent takes his Game. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 9 April 1887

How a Life Insurance Agent takes his Game. Did you ever see how one of those life in surance fellows approaches a man? They are vastly different from the fire insurance man. There is all the difference in the world between them. The fire fiend ap proaches on his line of business at once, but the life-long fiend is a schemer. A life agent will call several times, before mention ing insurance. Finally, when he catches a inan absolutely at leisure, he approaches him* and crowds the thing through in a hurry from that time on. When they do commence once, they never let up, and in nine cases out of ten they pick out their vic tims before thay spring the object of their visit on them. Anrother thing, a fire insurance man never spends a penny with a prospective customer. He is to the point at once, while the life mars feels around. and makes certain that the gentleman is a sound subject and can pass examiatlion when' the final applicacion is made for his policy.. He asks the man into a pul....

He Won't Go Again. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 9 April 1887

Ho Won't Go Again. "Been' to the female barber's yet ?" asked a man of his friend the other day . "No." " The touch 1of that gazelle's hand .was: light, delicate, and soothing. When she laid' me back inithe filmy recesses of that oriental chair and lathered my'face with perfumed whipped cream, and rubbed it into my coarse face with her velvety hands, every hair be came attuned like the sighings of an ceolian harp. Well. I'll admit the razor was a little dull, and my face has been a little sore since, but then we must have the thorns with the rose. I shall never forget the great big, dreamy, hazel eyes that drank in the depths of my confiding soul when she reached over and pulled my right shoulder blade up under my ear and commenced rasping the back of my neck. She waxed my scant moustache a la Napoleon, and ruffld my eyebrows to make me look gruffy and manly.. Then she tattooed me with an occasional spot of bay' rum, squirted a couple of squirts of carmine grease in my hair and rubb...

The Shy Man. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 9 April 1887

The Shy Man. There are certain misfortunes which, while iniflicting a vast amount of suffering upon their victims, gain for them no sympathy. Losing an umbrella, falling in love, tooth ache, black eyes, and having your hat sat: upon, may be mentioned as a few examples, but the chief of them all is shyness. The 'shy. man is regarded as an animate joke. His tortures are the sport.of the drawing-room aiena, and are pointed out and disciussed with great gusto. " Look 1I" cry his tittering audience to each other, "be's blushing." 'Just watch his legs," says one.: "Do you notice how he is sitting ?" adds. another; " right on the edge of the chair." " Seems to have plenty of color," sneers a military-looking gentleman. "Pity he's got so many hands," murmurs an elderly lady, with her own calmly folded on her lap. "They quite confuse him." - " A yard or two off his feet wouldn't be a disadvantage," ,cohimes in the comic man, "especially as he seems so anxious to hide them." And then another ...

Our Cultured. Sister. She ,. It us when the days were long. And all the land flowed milk and honey, Our mother's heart was full of song, And father's pockets full of money. But things went ,wrong when mother died, And father seemed heart-broken nearly, And wanted some one by his side Besides a pack of rough boys clearly. And so 'twas settled out of hand That Polly should come home, for no man, Father said, a house could stand Without a useful, clever woman, And Dr. Brown was overcome With joy, and said how very jolly 'Twould be for all to have her home Our clever, useful, sister Polly. And so she came, and father gave Her full command of Bills and Bessies ; And told us each-to be her slave, And gave her keys of doors and presses; And bade us, if we'd please him,'we Must just obey her to the letter, Unquestioned, for all learned she, While we' were fools-or little better.

His Sight was Failing. He had been to a high-priced oculist about two dozen times to have his eyes operated on, and at his last visit the oculist remarked, confidently "You're getting along finely, sir, and you'll be all right in a few weeks." " I hope so, doctor, but I can't see now as well as I could at first." " Oh, yes, you can: there's a marked im provement." " But, doctor, I know better." "iYou only think so." "Oh, no, I know." " How do you know ?". " Why, doctor, when I first came I could see quite a snug little sum :to my credit in the bank, and I'll be hanged if I can see a pound there now." The doctor ceased his argument.

How He Struck a Job. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 9 April 1887

How He Struck a Job. On the North-Western train was a sallow. faced, red-haired man, with a pair of spec tacles on his nose and a far-away look in his eyes. In the west seat was a smooth-faced young man who said he was;! looking for a job. S"I want a young man to clerk in my office," said the sallow-faced man, " and if you can fill the bill I'll take you. I am an editor up near Sandhurst. Now, s'pose I' was sitting.at my desk and a big man with his fiats all doubled up and a wild look in his eyes should come up the stairs and in q'ire for the editor, what would you tell him ?" "I'd tell him the editor wasn't in," re plied the young -man ; "but that if he'd sit down and wait a few minutes you'd probably be back from the gun store, where you had gone to get a new seven-shooter revolver, and a knife thirteen inches long to cut up rollers and things with."

Not up to the Quack Business. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 9 April 1887

Not up to the Quack Business. A notorious quack in a small up-country mining town found his business increasing to such an extent that he was obliged to take an assistant. He did not, however, attempt to impose upon his junior as he did on the public, very candidly admitting that his re putation rested on a series of fortunate guesses and lucky accidents. " You come with me while I pay: a few visits. You will very soon get the hang of the thing." The first house they called at they found the master in bed. Quack Senior, the. moment he set eyes on the plaintiff, said : "There, now; how men of your time of life can be imprudent enough to indulge in a sur feit of cucumber, I can't see. How many cucumbers did you eat this morning ? The best part of three, I'll be bound." The old man, wondering at the acuteness of his medical adviser, admitted that he was right in every particular. The doctor prescribed some simple remedy, and took his fee and his leave. No sooner were they.outside thane...
