An Office Boy's Lucky Mistake. (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 2 September 1887

An Omce Boy's Lucky Mistake. (82,'PAUL PIONURO Prnas.) In a real-estate office the other day I heard a gentleman relating the experience of an Eastern friend of his who, many years ago, for a bad debt (i) of 20,000dol., was com. pelled 'to accept Western land of the esti. mated value of 15,000dol. He paid constantly increasing taxes upon the land fora number of years without going to see it. One day his agent telegraphed him, asking him what he would take for the land, which had finally come to he far wlthtn the corporate limits of Chicago. Theowner figured that, taxes and Interest, the land had coat him 30t000dol., and more in a Joke than in any thing else-not dreaming that the offer would be accepted-wrote a telegram saying that he would take 50,000dol. cash for the property. He sent the mesesae by his editsce-bo, when the clerk insisted that the sum be spelled out in the mesage. The ofilce-hoy re-wrote it, and by mistake wrote t00,000dol. instead of 50,000dol. In an hour back'cam...

General Wolseley and General Lee. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 2 September 1887

General Wolseley and General Le, Lord Wolseley has sent to General Charles Dahlgren a letter declining to answer the severe criticism of General Sherman and Jeff Davis on his (Woleeley'a) review of General Long's history of Lee. Lord Wolseley says :--"Anything coming from the pen of a distinguished soldier like General Sherman will always he of interest and weight. I have so much sincere respect for his military character and hie great achievements that were be to differ from me in opinion upon any campaign in which he, like myself, had taken no part, and of which therefore he was, like myself, merely an on prejudiced commentator, I should hesitate before I expressed any view at variance with his. " In the present instance, however, I think the outside world, who must be the oreat jury to eventually settle all such con. tested matters of opinion, will attach more weight to the opinions of European students of war upon the events of the great Confede. rate struggle than even to those...

The Facts of Fontenoy. (LONDON FIGARO.) [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 2 September 1887

The riact of t oetenor. (r.ovnoc eIAino.) It is really encouraging to find that one well.known historical saying seems to have been actually uttered. In these days, when we are assured that Cesar never said " Ei to, Brute i" and that Wellington certainly did not exclaim " Up Guards and at them I" that Nelson most decidedly never ejaculated " A peerage or Westminster Abbey I" and so on, It is something to have one cherished belief spared to us. The thanks of English. men are due to the Due doBroglie, who has written 'a most' interesting article on the Battleof Fontenoy in a French review. It was at this battle that a scrupulously polite French officer is said to haveezclaimed to the British Grenadiers facing him, " Mee. lisers lee Anglals, tiresles premiers I" and it is gratifying to learn thai as the reselt of his researches the Dun de Broglie finds that' something of the kind was actually uttered on the field. At the time referred to the French and English troops were halting oppos...

ON HAND SHAKES. (MANCHESTER QUARTERLY.) [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 2 September 1887

ON HAND SHAKES. (AiNcmsessaquEaRtULT.) Let me touch a few types with which most of us are familiar, and although the shakes may .be of various degree. of intensity, yet they are as truly living and moving models as any ever exhibited by a peripatetic showman to a'Britieh public ata nominal charge. The bony shake is not cot fined to either sex ; it may be found alike in tall and bhort, etout or thin ; and consists of an offer of the bones only of the right hand; not unotil your bhand closes round the shaker's palm can you feel the coldness, the lack of fervour in the greet ing ; theie is no responsive grip to answer to our own, but the munscles only of the fingers and the palm lie in your hand, m though you were handling that which may be fitly de scribed as belonging to one of the lemon squeezers of society, one who is a wet blanket on all enfoyment, sees clouds in sunshine, coffins in the candle, whose talk sets your teeth on edge, and in whose unexpressive eyes you can find no tra...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. SPRING FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 2 September 1887

,THE L'ADIES' COLUM N. SPRING FAHIONS. (B:-Vrv.A) It would be much easier to say what is not fashionable in millinery than what is, for it is a difficult task to specify each and everything- that is worn. Feathere and flowers are seen. Ribbons are much nesd. yet gauzes, crepes, and talles are equally fashionable. Bright colouar are noted, yet pdre white, sombre black, dark and light grey, greyish.blue or gobelino pale green, and modest heliotrope are quite as promi nent. Large hate are considered elegant, yet there are plenty of small ones for women who find them becoming. Few changes are seen in hat shapes. The somewhat high-crowned chapeau, with a berim that narrows at the back, and is quite broad at each side and in front, seems a favourite one. The milliner, by bending the brim, makes it becomlng to each wearer; sometimes it is turned up considerably on each side, and sometimes only on one side, while atanother time it slupturnsdinooronet fashion just in front. The latter, howev...

THE ORIGIN OF "'lYANKEE DOODLE." (OnalST?ar Ax woar.) The origin of " Yankee Doodle " is by no means as clear au Amerilean antiquarians desire.

The joke succeeded, and "Yankee Doodle" was hailed with acclamation as their own march. The account is somewhat apocry phal, ae there i no song.; the tone in the United States le a march; there are no words to it of a national oharoacter. The only words ever sExed to th...
