ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 April 1887

ANSWERS TD CORRESPONDENTS JoE.-When your wife calls you a bear she probably remembers how you used to hug her. SPRrITUALIST.-Cures by the laying on of hards are not credited; but bad boys have been cured of wickedness in that way, when the hands were laid on hard enough, you know. AMATEUR wants to know whether there is any way to prevent the eyes filling with water whilst singing, None that we know of, except to steel' your heart against the sufferings of your hearers. FACEmAN.-The quickest way to get down a shaft is just to hang a moment over the mouth, then let go to moisten your hands. MARY JxNE's young husband refuses to rise and light the morning fire, and swears when she wants tea and toast in bed. We cannot advise her ; better speak to your mother, Mary, and leave the matter in her hands.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 April 1887

The Easter Review of 1887 is now a thing of the past and very lengthy reports have appeared in the daily papers from time to time; but from the fact that Point Franklin was manned by our own boys, we feel a special interest in their performances. On this occasion they have fully sustained their character for smartness and efficiency, and they have the honor of being the only bat tery that has carried away all its targets, thereby earning a well merited compliment from the commandant Col. Disney, in whose presence on Monday afternoon a shot from Sergeant A. Priddle's detachment shattered the target. On Tuesday a competition took place between the three detachments, com manded by Sergeant Priddle and Corporals   White and Haggar respectively, the former being successful by a good majority, one of their shells sinking the last remaining tar- get. The utmost good feeling existed   amongst the men through the whole encamp-. ment; strict discipline was maintained...

Death: BURN—On the 18th April, at King street, Queenscliff, Elizabeth Margurite Lillas, youngest beloved daughter of John and Mary Burn, aged 14 months. A little bud as white as snow Was by an angel given, But fearing earth would spoil its bloom, He planted it in Heaven. What rejoicing 'midst the angels, What a burst of music rare, As they watch our little Bessie Toddling up the golden stair. Our little bud in Heaven. IN MEMORIAM. In loving remembrance of JOHN WILLIAMS, upwards of 27 years a resident of Queenscliff, who depart- ed this life on Easter Sunday, 1886.

Asserting Her Credit. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 30 April 1887

Asserting Her Credit. A man with three or four 'possum rugs in a strap had called at a. house in the uburbs and rung the bell without arousing anybody, when a woman called to him from across the street " No use ringing there." "Lady gone" . ,, "They are too poor to buy anything." He was about to pass on when a chamber window' was raised and a woman stuck her head out and said : "I'll show 'em whether we are or are not i I think a carpenter's wife is just as good as a drayman's wife, and has just as much money for fine things. What is your best rug 7" "This one, ma'am-for thirty shillings." "Hang it on the fence where everybody can see it. Now take this five pound note and call at all the houses round here and ask for change. You won't get it, but I have the right amount to hand you when you come back. If you happen to say to 'em as youi go around that' this is the first thirty shilling rug you've sold within a mile of here, I'll give you some bread and cheese and a glass of beer." [...

A Bridegroom Nonplussed. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 30 April 1887

A Bridegroom Nonplussed. A young man named Christian asked at an up.country registry office for a marriage li. aense lately. 1He said he was 20 years old. " Ah 1" ejaculated the registrar, "you are not old enough, my boy. Go home and get a permit from your mother." The young man's face was as crimson as his necktie as he turned to leave. When he reached the door the man called him back.. " By-the-way, you may need a permit for your intended," he said. "Has she reached maturity 2" "What's that ?! "How old isihet" .? . : ."She's forty-five." ' "Well, you'll have to bring the consent of your mother, but you: won't haveto get-. the consent of your girl's mother unless- you want to." "I'm afraid I couldn't," remarked Chris tian, almost hopelessly, "'cos I believe she's dead."

The Repeater at the Play. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 30 April 1887

The: Repeater at the Play. Of all the great nuisances living That man at the play is the worst, Who must to his neighbor keep giving The words that have just been rehears't. He repeats Hamlet's words to Ophelia; Othello's farewell, so sublime; And Rosalind's talk to Miss Celia; And Cassio's remarks upon wine; Macbeth's conversation with witches, And Juliet's balcony chat, Lear's rant 'mid the fens and the ditches, And the humour of Falstaff the fat. There is nothing can 'scape this repeater; He's revolving for ever and aye, He's a bore that would worry St. Peter, And he ought to be blojwn to the sky.

He Got Square With Him.

The Tallest Man of Modern Times. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 30 April 1887

The Tallest Man of Modern Times. There appeared at the London Pavilion last year, for' the* first time, the tallest man whose height has been recorded in modern times. The new giant is an Austrian named Win. kelmeier, and his height is 81t. 9in. which is over one foot more than that of Chang, the Chinese giant. Winkelmeier was born at Freidburg, near Salsberg, upper Austria, in 1865, his parents being in an humble station in life. He is the youngest of a family of five children, none of whom are of abnormal stature, nor are his parents or grandparents unusually tall. His fingers span two octaves on a piano, and the stretch of his arms is en ormous. He showed no development of this extraordinary growth up to the age of four. teen, but since then he has been growing rapidly, and medical authorities of Berlin and Paris have expressed the opinion that' he is likely to continue' --doing- so till he is twenty-five. The young man is healthy, strong and in telligent. Beyond doubt he is one ...

His Hand Was Out. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 30 April 1887

His Hand . Was Out. Jimmy Saywell's wife was visiting her family, and his friend Smith had invited him to share his quarters until her return to the city.* They had been out for the evening. As they started to mount the front steps, Smith' said : "Jimmy, this reminds me of old times, when you were a'bachelor. Ah, it's a great thing to be married. 1 wish I had followed your example and got married." Saywell said nothing. By this time Smith was probing around with his night key with. not the slightest show of success. - Finally he remarked : " Confound this night key. I never could make the bamed thing work. Jimmy, you try it." "No use, old man. I'm positive that I can't do anything with it."' "Nonsense I Don't you remember you used to be able to open the door every time when we used to enjoy life in the good old days ?" "I know it," murmured Jimmy, sadly. "But I would.not know 'anything about it' now. I'm married." And he breathed a- sigh that made the corner gas.lamp flicker dismall...

Jack and Gill. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 30 April 1887

" Jack and Gill. The difference in the style of poems, be tween those of the ancient: writers and. our.. modern bards, is really remarkable. While the modern style requires the as sistance of a bred and born detective, with the aid of a dictionary and a fine tooth-comb, to discover the meaning and purpose of the poem, which would naturally make it un popular with the classes, the old style has the advantage of being easily understood, and bears a conviction that the author was not guilty of fraud, with intent to deceive. Take that old familiar melody entitled "Jack and Gill," for instance. The author says s "Jack and Gill went up a hill." He introduces his characters, and launches them out upon a mission, in the very first line, in language that is too plain to be misunderstood. He does not weary you with a lengthy re cital of the beautiful surroundings-the flowery dells through which the subjects pass to reach the hill ; and in common with the general ran of readers who look with d...

I opsieur Lafette's Cojring Trick Br J. C. The eventful.evening arrived at last. All day long I was in a perfect fever of excite ment, thinking how I would act the part of host and provide the guests with sufficient amusement. Neville met me early onthe day, and coolly informed me that he was going to bring a French marquis, whom he accidentally picked up at the club the preceding night. " A marquis," I exclaimed I "What in the name of all that's wonderful will we do with him ?" "Never mind," answered Neville, gaily; "he is a jolly dog, and won't be particular. He heard that you possess good cigars and champagne, so he is going to grace your fes ';ive board with his presence." " Very considerate of him, indeed," I drily ejoined. "I .wonder will his presence at my estive board compensate me for the amount of cigars and champagne he is likely to con same." "Come, now, don't be getting stingy," laughed Neville, as he glanced at his watch; "you have fallen in for a big rent-roll,.and sh...
