THE SOLE YiN HALF-HOUR. BY SILAS SNELL. STRANGE CONDUCT OF A GOAT. .There are few families which have not at sometime or other supported a goat. Once in a life time of the average wife and mothe' she gets attached to a notion that her swect babe is fading away for the want of goat's ,milk. She imagines the pure juice straight from the ruminant willbe the making of that babe, and cause him to become a strong and a good man. 'Tis then that she discovers the has potato parings, waste cabbage, scrap bread, and old boots enough t-, keep an ani mal with two appetites. She mentions the. idea to her husband, and dilates upon the advantage of having a nanny about the home, to play with the children, eat up the waste, and give wholesome milk; and she inakes much of the circumstance that it can board in the hen-house. Most likely the husband will oppose the motion, but when it is put to the meeting you can bet - six and .threepence that the " ayes " will have it When a .woman has:a yearning' i...

Our Glorious Foorce. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 21 May 1887
Our Glorious Foorce. The policeman iii a mian of appetite and zeal, a man with a cart-load of brains. If you study;the papers, closely you'll wonder how he manages to keep up, cumbered as he is with intellect. Thoigh he is usually cor pulent--weighing on an average sixteen stone, two pounds, seven grains-it is a very high difficulty that he cannot surmount and yet. retain his wind. If a difficulty planks itself in the way of the policeman, he grapples with it right on the spot, and don't you back the difficulty; ten to one it will get a bad fall. A curious thing happened to a guardian 'of the peace and quiet of this city the other day. He came' cross a gentleman in a fear .ful state of drunk and disorder, and gather ing that gentleman up in his arms, he nursed him off to a dungeon, and told the recording anigel~at the door to charge him with being in liquor and obstructing a public gutter. Next morning the prisoner had a head on. him like the pumpkins which abound in the' .vicinity ...

A Trip to Tasmania. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 21 May 1887
A Trip. to Tasmania. We had no sooner left the 'Bay. and passed throughlithe' Heads! into the rip than some thing got into the old steamboat. She began to bow and duck and kick up and perform in such a queer manner that we held 'a meeting and appointed a committee to wait on the captain and ask for information. The committee never returned. WIheth~ r the captain threw 'em overboard, or they got tired out and lay down under the piano to rest, we, never knew. Pretty sooh after that the steamer .began to act like a born fool; It would "rear up in front and kick up behind, and sich"hbrseplay' on the part of a straight 15,000 or 20,000 years old was disgusting.. We held another meeting, but as we failed to fasten the re sponsibility on any particular person no resolutions were passed.- -- - - --" Half an hour after being out it seemed as if some one ought to go to the captain and ask him if there was any particular object in.the boat behaving in such a manner.

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. A LESSON ON THE TAME EMU. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 21 May 1887
THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. BY SILAS .S~ ELL. A LESSON ON THE TAME EMU. The emu is a tallbiped, .with an inquisitive air and a handy neck for stretching after things. When roaming the plains in a state of nature, this bird is modest and retiring ; it will retire upon the slightest provocation, and if detained in the presence of a man its shy confusion is painful to behold. But a few months in good society quite eradicates that awkward embarrassment, and gives the most bashful emu the calm assurance of a stone Venrus. She soon picks up enough wickedness to last a life.time, but continues collecting as she goes, until she is nothing but a store-house of rascality and deceit and a woeful monument of the demoralising effects of European civilization. Give the timidest, most guileless young emu twelve months in the Zoo., where men will come to scrutinize her day by. day, and betray her childlike confidence by feeding her with strong mustard sandwiches and cayenne lozenges, and at the end of th...
