The Romance of a Rose. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1885
The Romance of a Rose. A story comes fresh to us from the coal 'mines of the Lackawanna `Valley- simple story, but rich with immense possibilities. In the "Diamond " shaft there was no steadier, harder worker than Jim Gardiner. What he did with his money was long a mystery. He had n'o wife, no family, no expensive habits, no relatives that anyone knew of, and yet no savings' bank account. It was learned later that all but the little needed for his daily wants went for charity -found its* way quietly, unobtrusely, into the huts of women and children whose hus bands and fathers had: gone down in the .crush of falling timbers or come forth black and crisp 'from the scorching fire-damp. There was something about Gardiner that suggested a former life of a higher grade. He talked but little, but that little was in words well chosen and of choice dialect. His dress was as rough as the. roughest, but he carried it as a man who had been used to face the world smilingly. They called him "Gent...
Big Words. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1885
Big Words. . Julius Cssar's motto used to,be,; " Avoid an unusual word as you would a rock at sea,'. and Jule was right aboutit, too:. Large and unusual words, ;especially in; the mouths of ignorant people, are worse than ." Rough on Rats ' in:a boarding house pie. Years ago there used to be a pompous cuss i:ii Sandhurst, who :was a self-made man. Extremely so. Those who used to hear him assert .again and, again that:he was a self .made man 'always, felt renewed confidence in the Creator. He rose one evening in a political meeting, and swelling out his bosom, as his eagle eye rested oil the Chairman, he said: " Mr. Cheerman I., I move that the cheer .do appoint.a c'miýi ttde of three to attend to, the matter undef discussion, and that sayed committee be clb'thediby the cheer:with omi niscient and omnipotent powers."I" ' -The motion was duly seconded' and the chairman' said he thought: tliat it wouldn't be'necessary to put it to a vote. r", ' I guess it will be all right,' Mr. Pinkha...
ASHES OR SUPERPHOSPHATES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1885
ASHES OR SUPER]HOSPHATES. One of the moost vexatious questions ad.. dressed to agricuiltural editors is such a one as "Are aeses as. go0d a fertiliser as super phosphates ?" whichtis about equivalent to. the question, "Which is the best for a man, meat or drink?" .An:d yet (p. 684) "Our Country Hone " is quoted as saying that the neglect to save wood-ashes compels the pur chase of phosphates. True, there is some phosphoric acid in wood-ashes, but it is the error of all errors in the farming community to think that one: partial fertiliser may be substituted for another, or for a comjlete fertiliser; and it is the hardest of all errors to correct.. I have worked at it, as an editor, these twenty years, yet continually am asked these stupid, stupid questions., Certainly the agricultural journals ought not to fall into the same error.-Rural New Yorker,

Sports on the Sun. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1885
Spots on the Sun. It began 'to'rain again. 'soon after dinner the other day, and. a .disgusted citizen who came down in an ominibus, beside an old man remarked : " I presume this is owing to the spots on the sun," "Hey ?" called the other, as he put his hand to his ear. " Spots on the sun," yelled the other. "Hey? Spots ? Where are the spots 7" "On the sun." "'Hey ?" "On the sun." The old man rose up, looked out of the window, and squinted around for a minute, and then returned and said : "Can't see the sun 'tall. How did the spots come there ?" " I don't know." "Hey " "I don't know." "Have you seen 'em ?" "No.". "You have, eh ?" "I said no." "Oh, you haven't? What was your ob ject in telling me there were spots on the sun? I am not so old that I permit anyone to make a fool of me." The other now looked out of the window and assumed a.careless air, but the old' man was right after him with : "You come into a'bus when I amni mind ing my own business, and begin to talk about spots on ...

THE POWER OF RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1885
THE POWER OF RAIN. Prof. Tait calculates, according to the. London Gardeners' Chronicle, that theamount of force requisite to Iconvert one pound of water from the sea, or from moist earth, into vapor, is equal to the force exerted during one-half hour by a horse. This is given out again in the form of heat as it condenses, and the pound, of water falling as rain would cover a square foot of ground to the depth of rather less than one-fifth of an inch. Thus, one-fifth of an inch of rain represents a horse. power for half-an.hour on every square foot, or, on a square mile, about a million horse power for fourteen hours. A million horses would barely have standing room on a square mile.

The Sentinel. SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1885 [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1885
The action of the council in assisting the Sports Club by erecting a fence &nbsp; round the bowling green, is to be com- mended. Considering that they re- &nbsp; ceived a large amount of limestone with- out going to the expense of excavating the stone under these circumstances, it &nbsp; &nbsp; was the least they could do. The present state of the roads show that metal is the one thing needful, and this stone has not been used before it was required. Owing to the constitution of the council &nbsp; &nbsp; the representatives of the ratepayers cannot undertake such works as the lorination of a bowling green and tennis court, and works of a similar nature &nbsp; which are necessary attractions to a place like Queenscliff. The Sports &nbsp; Club is not trammelled with the Local Government Act, and owing to this &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; fact they can carry out necessary muni-...

Thursday, 9th. &nbsp; Before Messrs Hare, P.M., and Cain J.P.,) James Griffiths was charged by Constable &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Savage with assaulting him in the execution of his duty. The evidence of the witness went to show the beastly behaviour of &nbsp; &nbsp; Griffiths and he insulted respectable people &nbsp; &nbsp; without the slightest provacation. Owing to &nbsp; &nbsp; the repentant defence of prisoner the Bench &nbsp; fined him £5 or one month's imprisonment. &nbsp; &nbsp; James Holly was called and did not appear to answer a complaint of obscene language. &nbsp; &nbsp; Constable Mahoney proved the disgusting &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; particulars of the case, and gave accused a &nbsp; &nbsp; very bad character, also disclosing the many &nbsp; prio...
