The Future Life. How shall I know thee In the sphere which keeps The disembodieod spirits of the dead, When all of thee that time can wither sleeps, And perishes among the dust we tread I For I shall feel the sting of ceaseless pain If there I meet thy gentle presence not, Nor hear the voice I love nor read again In thy sercnest eyes the tender thought, Will not thy own meek heart demand me theoren- That heart whose fondest throbs to me were given My name on earth was ever in thy prayer, And wilt thou never utter it in Heaven i In meadows fanned by Heaven's life-breath to.ingwind, ' 'In ti resplendeneo of that glorious sphere, And larger movements of the unfettered mind Wilt thou forget' the love that joins no here The love that lived through all the stormy past, And meekly with my harsher nature bore, And deeper grew, anrl tenderer to the lost PShall it expire with life and be no more A happier lot than mine and larger light Await thee there; for thou Iast bowed thy will In cheerfu...

GOOD TEMI'LARTY AT OAKLEIGH. Sir,--In answer to your correspondent of March 20th, signing himself "Boozcr," 1, as chief of the lodge which he vilifies, think that he must have been drinking too much of that commodity that makes boozer:, called beer, or else he could not have made public such unreliable state mcnts with reference to the platform he lays down.

THE ST. KILDA BOARD OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 13 April 1889
THE ST. KILDA BOARD OF ADVICE. Messrs. G. Connibere (chairman), J. 0. Prescott, G. A. Williams, J. AI. Yellhad, C. IV. Connibere and Jas. Hartley, mmblers of the St. Kilda board of advice, met on Monday night and transacted the ordinary business for the month, there being nothing of any interest to note. On the motion of Mr. Connlbero, seconded by Mr. Yellaud, it was resolved to request the Education de partment to abate the nuisance at the Brighton.rold school by having the grounds levelled and drained. This is no urgent work, and it is intended, should the depart mlent not accede to the request, to have a deputation to wait upon the Minister of Education, with a view to having the necessary work effected. As the balance sheets, etc., in regard to the recent picnic were not quito ready, the matter will be discusscd at the neat meeting. It was pointed out, however, that a good balaunce in hand would result after paying all en. 12ýe.

HER LETTER TO HER SAILOR LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 13 April 1889
IIEl1 LETTERI TO IIEt SAILOR LOVE. My own beloved, the day is long, The night comes lone and drcar, And sad the music of my song Since thou no more art here. Thought drifts to thee, my darling one, Aecross the distant sea ; Whilst wonder riseth, art thou lone, Forlorn, and lost like me 1 When stormy winds blow loud and strong, And moans the mighty sean, My poor heart bleeds in sorrow long With anxious care for thee. 'Tis tlen to God I bend in prayer To calm the waves and storm ; To bring you to a haven fair, And save my love from harm. Speed on thy way, my own sweet one And haste thee nlck to me; For 1 shlll be but sad and lone Till life is shared with thee.
