The Deceiving Hammock. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

SThe Deceiving Hamrmock. . . :"I've been a fool !" growled Harper,. yesterday, as he untied a-parcel in his front - yard and shook out a new hammock. :" Here I've been hopping around all. through this; infernal hot spell when I might just as well have been swinging in a hammock and had my blistered back cooled by the breezes." Anyone can put Uip a hammock. All you've got-to do is to untie about five hun dred knots, unravel -,abdut: five hundred kinks, and work over the ,thing :until you can tell whether the open side was meant to. go up or down. . This puzzled Harper for fully twenty minutes, but he. finally- got it right and fastened- the two ends to two convenient trees. Then he took off his hat and coat and `rol led in with a 'great sigh of relief. No, "he didn't quite.rollin. He was all ready to, when the hammock walked away.from him; and he rolled over on.the grass and came .to a stop with a lawn-mower under the small of his back. " Did you mean to do that?", called aboy .who w...

POULTRY RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

POULTRY RAISIN.G. • A lady correspondent, who is an extensive and, successful poultry-raiser, ; sends, 'the', following in : relation, 'to feeding young chick ns,; the most difficult piiart of--the oilrtryman's profession: " Forty years ago when we alllived 'back Exit,' we used to mix cornmeal'with cold: watzr+i in a stiff mass of dough and throw it. on thie ground for the newly-hatched chicks. Th.'y would eat it and then run. after the .ol1. mother hen to get a dessert of a bug'or a v orm. They lived and thrived without gapes, roup, cholera, lice, and numerous other ills that spring chickens are liable to, and were in fine condition for our old-fash ioned Thanksgiving dinners.. But here in California the man or woman who .would feed chickens in that style would change a prospective profit to a total loss. After having many years experience in California growing chicks hatched by both hens and incubators, I can say' that he or. she who 'supp?ose ' making' chicks requires"only a smal...

Only a Shell. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

Only a Shell. Last Sunday a young clt rgyman from a I young. congregation preached, by exchange, to a congregation which is one of the serene, old-fashioned, undisturbed sort, where the rising generation's undoubted human nature is allowed for in a quiet and sensible way. The visiting clergyman remained to the Sun day school, and after the exercises were about half finished he rose to make a little speech. " I know that you are an enterprising Sun day school," he said, "because I see you have so many new books. I know that you are a happy Sunday school, because I see so many smiling faces around me. And I know that you are a generous Sunday school, because that little boy over there by the long: pew door offered me a hazel-nut as I came in." The attention of the assembly was' instantly directed to the little boy, who began to snicker uncontrollably to himself. "Well, what's the matter, my little man?" asked the clergyman, "You're not sorry you- offered me the nut, are you ?" " Did y...

Mr. and Mrs. Bowser. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

Mr. .and Mrs. Bowser. One evening just before our marriage Mr. Bowser said to me: " I shall make you a weekly allowance of cash, and the money will be absolutely yours. The idea of a wife having to beg money of her husband strikes me with pain and dis gust. Half of what he owns bolongs to her, anyway, and yet some husbands make their wives account for the pennies as much as if they were errand boys. I shall give you two pounds per week, and you can either spend or save it." The first four weeks after marriage we were on our bridal tour, and I was too happy to think of such base stuff as cash.' It was all of seven weeks before I' made out and playfully presented to Mr. Bowser' the fol lowing little bill : ~?,. Bowser to Mrs.'Bowser, Dr. Te seven weeks' stipeied at £2 per week- £14 Received Payment. " What's this ?" demnianded Mr. Bowser, 'as he received it in a very formal manner.: "Myhlittle bill. You were to allow me two pounds :per week, you know." : " "For what ?" . So that I wou...

A Lecture to. Boys in General. " Well, you have been a good boy ?" "Oh, yes." Now; boy, that is not right. Or, if it is, why do you hang your head and color so when your mother asks you the question.

In Her Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

In -Her Sleep. One of the familiar effects of ether is to make the palient talk ramblingly of what ever may be passing in the mind. Charley Smith has a dear little girl, whom he thinks the world of, and rumor hath it that the two will shortly be made.one. Charley had an errand to perfo2 m and?whoshould he meet but Nellie. The poor little thing cut an awful appearance though, and the woe-begone, tear-stained face peeping out from the mufflers struck terror to his heart. She had been up most all night with a terrible tooth ache, and would an't Charley go to a- dentist's with her ? Of course he would and did. She preferred ether, and the accommodating den tist saturated a cloth with the stuff and held it under her little nose. She gasped some, but soon settled into desuetude, her ruby lips parted, and she began right off prattling away like a -sleeping baby. Charley was standing just beside the chair when she murmured i " Oh I Charley, don't." Charley looked up at the dentist, down at ...

Agricultural, &c. BAMBOO FOR FENCING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

BAMBOO FOR FENCING. W. Saunders, formerly a resident of Tehama county, but now at Saunders, Fresno county, sends the following to the Chico Enterprise : - " An enthusiastic Fresnoan predicted some years ago that an acre of rich valley land would produce more fencing. material in ten years than any acre of the best timber. That-prediction is now verified by the use of bamboos, weaving them into a fence with strands of twisted wires;with a machine, two men" making 'forty rods a day, at. a cost of a '`bit a rod' for wire. Not all bamboos are of value for fencing." Mr. Saunders, who has.over a dozen varieties, says the Arundi'nirzc is the-only:one of any value. He brought us a pole of one of these, over twenty-sir feet-' long, which shows strength, and says that. several pickets can be cut from each stem. The original stock of 'these bamboos was obtained from Japan. A hundred thousand pickets, four feet long, it is said, can be raised every year from an acre of well-established roots. U...

What He Would Do. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 14 May 1887

What He Would Do. "Isaac, my honest own, what would you do if I should die " asked a loving wife of her husband, as. she laid: her fair, white arms around his neck. "Well, really, my love, I hadn't thought of it," he answered, abstractedly; "-but I presuble I'd bury you, and then tell that red headed widow across the s.reet, who is al ways winking at me, that nothing in this world would ever induce'me to marry again." Then she tore herself froni him, plucked the flowers he had just given her from her heaving bosom, called him a knock-kneed sneak, went into hysterics, and screamed for her ma till the old lady came. Then wasn't there a rumpus. Two aboriginals up in Queensland became possessed of a bottle of brandy a while back. They were buried together-one died of concussion of the brain, and the other from alcoholic poisoning,
