"Excuse me, madam, but if you do not remove your hat I shall not be able to see anything." The lady ignored him.

His friends scraped his remains off the hanging wall with bits of hoop iron. His funeral was well attended. An English paper says that "the book that is now selling best in Italy is the Bible." We shouldn't wonder. It must be quite a novelty in literature there. The master of a state school asked a small boy the masculine of step-daughter, and the young rascal replied-" Step-ladder." That youth is very careful what he sits on now; he prefers an air pillow. A tiger at the Melbourne Zoo. was so en raged by the sight of a dude the other day that he tore off the sheet-iron flooring r:f his cage, and was in a fair way of escaping when his keeper knocked him senseless with a bar of iron.

Both of' them happened to bey at a Sunday school picnic, ands Mis Birdie wore some very large diamonds, the genuineness of .which was very much doubted by some of her friends.

The mendicant had on his finest woe begone look, but the odour of his breath was extremely suspicious. The gentleman re sponded-" Look here, my man, if I were to give you a nickel, would you buy bread with it or would you spenditfor whisky ?" "Well, I wouldn't spent it for whisky ; you can bet your last red on that." "How am I to know that ?" persisted the gentleman. " Say, mister, I may be tough and ornery and all that, but there's one thing I ain't got to yet, and that's drinking five-cent whisky." His honest pride was rewarded by a 15-cent donation.

Pretty Straight. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 April 1887

Pretty Straight. He was a colonial, and like all colonials was naturally bashful; and in - her company, was as dumb as an oyster.' She understood him, and one.evening asked plainly what made him so silent whenever 'he called on her. "I-er-I don't' know," he stammered.' "I always ah-have something to say before you come in, but I candt get it out. . Indeed ?" she said, encouragingly.: "' Yes. I am like a bottle that is corked up tight." V'ery tight, Mr. Smith?" "Yes, indeed, very." " Well, .that isn't sb 'bad .as you think. There is one?good thing about it." . "What is it, pray?" " Why, you know, the tighter a bottle isr corked, the more forcibly it pops." He grasped the situation at once, and now: she doesn't care whether he talks or not. She:; is content to do it all herself.

OUR ILLUSTRATION [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 April 1887

OUR ILLUSTRATION Comprises, in addition to a portrait of the English poet, Cowper, a view of his birth place and scenes from his best known works. William Cowper was born at Great Berk hamstead, in Herefordshire, in November, 1731. His father was the rector of his native place, and, after attending for a few years the ordinary country school of those days, he was, when a little over ten years of age, placed at Westminster, where he remained for some eight years. After completing his education he was articled to a London at torney, and at the age of 23 was called to the bar. He settled in the Middle Temple, and was soon after made a Commissioner of Bankruptcy, and through the influence of a relation was offered the position of Clerk of Committees of the House of Lords, but his temperament was of far too nervous a nature to allow him to occupy a position in which he would be brought so much in contact with Members of Parliament, as well as the general public, and his dread of the resp...

A Good Millionaire. The following touching item has been sent to us by a well known actor :-Dr.-, of Sydney, was a kind-hearted, but, at the same time, a very eccentric man. For instance, he was in the habit of going behind the scenes of the theatres, and conversing with- the actresses and chorus girls. He was a man who had a great deal of morbid curiosity and' and a great deal more hardcash. . One evening after the play was over, accom a n ýd?bth. m er of .thej theatre,. Dr.- .-was beiind-the'scenes tal- ?tn?ab thee elevating influence of the stage on modern society, when they were startled at hearing low agonising moans which proceeded fromn a ballet girl of about seventy-five years of age. " I wonder what is the matter with that child," said the manager. " I think I'll ask her." - "Do so," replied D.- ; "nothing is more distressing than the sorrows of the aged. The tears of old people are not like the shows of spring that bring out the roses and beautify the fields. They are more...

A Slight Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 April 1887

A Slight Mistake. She went into a furniture warehouse with her husband, a faint-hearted little man who carried a second fiddle under his arm. She dragged the salesman all over 'the ground floor, and, leaving her husband. down-stairs, she took the assistant to the second floor to look at some willow chairs. The poor fellow, tired and weary, finally made some answer that kindled her wrath. "Do you know who I am?" she asked. . "No, madam, I do not," he replied, politely. " Well, sir, I'd have you know I am Mrs. Blank, ahd that is my husband down stairs?" " Oh, I beg your pardon; I thought possibly you might be Mr. Blank, and that that was your wife down stairs." -

A Shark's Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 April 1887

A Shark's Mistake. ~ " Don't you do no foolin' with a shark," said a Geelong fisherman, as?he crowded to bacco into his pipe for, another' smoke. " Sharks is an animal as knows mor'n you think for. A couple of years ago I took a party out after fish in the yacht Mary. She belongs to Captain Small, or did afore he died. We were anchored up the Bay, and the fish were biting like smoke, when all at once the school left'us.-. I know that meant a shark, and I looked around for him. Purty soon he came alongside, and I up with a pole and give him an awful jab in the back. You can't hurt a shark's body very well, but his feelings are as tender as a child's., This fellow ran off a bit and then cocked his eye at me, and took a good long squint. Then he ran around under the stern to read the yacht's name, and when he went off he gave his tail a flirt which meant that he would call around and make it pleasant for me some other time. "Well, in the course of three or four days Capt. Small got hom...

But I suppose it is too much to expect; men are all alike, and care only for themselves." Mr. Minks-" Really, my dear, I don't know what you-are driving at." Mrs. Minks-" Oh, no, of course not. You don't even know that. this is my birthday, and .yet only a. few years ago the date was engraven on your heart, and. you `never: failed -to give me a present. Why didn't you do so to-day.?" Mr. Minks--" Because, my dear, I did inot wish to remind you of the painful fact'that you were a year older."
