A DOG'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

A DOG'S LIFE. BY SILAS SNELL. He was a fox terrier, with a dash of the Newfoundland in him, just enough to make him splaylegged, and ungainly, and grow patches of long hair'on his otherwise almost hairless.skin. : He was not what you might' call a handsome dog; his neck wis .rather long and thin, and lookedtoo much like a foot of his back-bone, which had grown out too far. So also with his tail; it was agged, and continued to such an extent as to appear unnatural.; He had a great fiat lihead; a sight heavier than was necessary .to so small a dog ; and stiff pointed ears, which stuck up out of his skull like two spikes through a pine board. " Thr:ws "a"Tidge along'his biack' like a damaged saw, ,and.all his food seemed to stop in one spot, just?ft his fore legs;? and when he had got on the right side of a good meal he sported ahump thdre like an American buffalo. Venus was his name. The m?a who lent him to me, and forgot to get him back again, gave him that name. He said that the poo...

A Singular Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

A Singular Marriage. A very singular marriage was one which took place at Leicester in the eighteenth year of Queen Elizabeth's reign, between Thomas Filsby, a deaf and dumb man, and Ursula Bridget, a hearing and talkative spinster. As the prayer-book required that the promises of marriage should be exchanged in spoken words, the clergy and civil authorities of Leicester were unable to say how this dumb man could be satisfactorily married. In their perplexity they appealed to the Bishop of London, who, with the help of another mem ber of the clergy, devised a marriage service by signs. The bride made her promises in the usual manner, and the groom did his part thus : "Having first embraced Ursula with his arms, he took her by the hand and put the nuptial ring on her finger. He then laid his right hand significantly upon his heart, and afterward, putting their palms together, extended both his hands to heaven. Having thus sued for the divine blessing, he declared his purpose to dwell...

A Mule's Antics. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

°A Mule's Antics. It is to an American poet, we believe, we owe the parody we have lately received of Mrs. Hemans' well-known ballad of "Casa. bianca." This is how it-begins: The mule stood on the steamer's deck, To land he would not tread; They pulled the halter round his neck, And cracked him o'er the head. Yet firm and steadfast there he stood, As though formed man to rule; A critter of heroic blood Was that there cussed mule. They shouted at him, but all in . vain; they lashed the "critter's hide " without result, until at last his master; watching the pro ceedings from.the shore, suggested the twist. ing of his tail.: On this a brave deck-hand stood forth, and approached with out stretched hands to twist that "critter's taiil." And here, evidently, we arrive at the crisis of ,the poem., All look on with bated breath. No sound but the heavy breathing of the excited mule and the agitated man is heard. All is still and hushed, when sudi denly, with the swiftness of Fate There came...

, Willing to Oblige Hini. . A Chicago murder recalls a very old story of the.Pacific slope. A good-natured miner made his first trip to San Francisco, with a lot of: gold dust for sale. So long as he had business on hand he attended to nothing else; but his dust once sold, he felt at liberty. He took a bath, got shaved, bought a suit of "atore clothes" and a "biled shirt," regis tered at a first-class hotel, dressed, and then started out for a good time. As he left the hotel door, he met, standing there,;a stranger with a pleasant-looking face, who nodded cheerfully to liim. "Why, how do you do ?" said the miner, grasping his hand with a squeeze like a vice ; "I'm desperate glad to see you. Been lookin' for you some time, stranger. Let's take a drink." The stranger politely expressed his thanks, but declined. A puzzled look stole over the miner's face, then one of wrath, and finally one of unmis takable sorrow. Under the latter mood he burst forth, "For heaven's sake, stranger, don'...

How They Feel. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

How They Feel. To wed or not to wed ?-that is the question. Whether 'tis wiser in a girl to.enjoy The tempting vision of single blessedness, Or, to -be led: by some- man of our -time to the altar, And by marriage end them? To wed, to doubt No more; and by that act to end The heartache, and calm the palpitating Bosom of some loye-sick youth ! 'Tis a con ; , summation Devoutly to be wished. A Scotchman, having a warm' disliute. with a Melbourne Hansom cabman about. his fare, said: " I'd have ye 'ken I am Mackintosh." To which the. respondent replied': " You may be a humbrella, for all. I knows; but my fare is two bob."' DIVING FOR FRESH WATER.-One of the hottest regions of the earth is along the Persian Gulf, where little br no rain falls.

The Cabman's Story. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

* The Cabman's Story: ?' One morning I was driving across Vaux. hall Bridge when I was hailed by a little crooked old man with a pair of spectacles on, who was standing at the Middlesex end, with a big leather bag in his hand. 'Drive where you like,' he said; 'only don't drive fast, for I'm getting old, and it shakes me to pieces.' He jumped in, and shut himself up, closing the windows, and I trotted about with him for nearly: three hours before he let me know he had had .enough. ' When I stopped, out he stepped with his big bag in his hand. "' I say, cabby !' he said, after he paid hi!" ' Yes, sir,' said'I,touching my hat. " You seem a decent sort of fellow, and you .don't go in the break-neck w' ay.of some, of your kind. I:don't mind giving you the same job every day.,,.

S A Peculiar Case. A curious case has lately been occupying the attention of the law courts in America,. and the following is a condensed account from the New York Atlas:--Just as the 2.15 train was moving from the Central station on Fourth 'Avenue, a young man; by the name of Jacob Low, sprung into a car of which the only occupant was a person of the name of Edward Chutt, who resides at 58th street with his widowed mother.

The Patient Shopkeeper. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

The Patient Shopkeeper. In days, of yore there lived in Chester an old tradesman who kept a drapery shop, and was remarkable in his imperturbable disposi tion, so much so that no one had ever seen him out of temper. This remarkable charac teristic having become the subject of con versation, one of his neighbors, who was somewhat of a wag, bet five pounds that he could succeed in ruffling the habitual placidity of the stoic. He accordingly proceeded to his shop, and asked to see some clothes suitable. for a coat. One piece was shown to him, and then another; a third and a fourth were handed from the shelves; th/is was too coarse, the other too fine; ;one was too dark a' color, another too light. Still the old draper con tinued placid as new milk; and no sooner did his customer start an objection to any particular piece than he was met by some other variety being laid before him, until the very last, piece in the shop was unfolded to his view.. The vendor now lost all hope of pleasing...
