: Mr. and 'Mrs. Bowser. I don't want the public to get the iimpre.: sion that Mr.iBowser is.not' a good-hearted ';an; Such an idea would do him great in justice. He is a little queer in some of his ways, but all right as a whole, and a laore tender-hearted man never lived. When we. began housekeeping and got our first hired girl, Mr. Bowser called me into the library, shut the dood~ droppe?ihis voice down to the confidential pitch and said : '" Mrs. Bowsel, let's start out right. Let's respect the'feelings of that poor girl in the kitche" : - " Certainly." " She's jast as good 'as. w'are, and we mustn't put on any airs over her.

From a Young Wife's Diary. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 28 May 1887
From a Young Wife's Diary. George said last week that we must econo mise, for trade seemed to be paralysed. It, is funny that trade should have waited till we got married aad then get paralysed. But' we must do all we can, George says, to save our money. .I am trying in-every way to save what he makes. For three days Ihave been making my husband a pair of the nicest; night-shirts that anybody ever saw. They are long and graceful and trimmed with pink embroidery. George put one of themn last night, and we had our first harsh word. At first he laughed a low, bitter laugh, such as we hear on the stage when thevillain sticks a large knife into a casual :acquain tance. I did not think that my ow eoii ge would ever curdle my 'yungn blood with such a low gurgling laugh;. For.. a few. moments I yearned for my mother'sbosomto mourn on, but it was useless to yearn. . .

A Word About the Censor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 28 May 1887
A . Word Abouit the Censor. Going out for a little recreation, my son ? Well, that's right. I like to see you enj y yourself. ;I was just talking with your Uncle George'about boys. " I know but one' occupation for boys," said your Uncle George, "and that is work. Put 'em to work and keep 'em at it,.but idle ness is the 'arent. of all vice. Don't, map out any particular calling, but just keep 'em at. work and it .will map out itself. Keep 'em at work, and a habit of work will grow on 'em. -TUhat's the wayI ~asbrought up.' Thus wisely speaks our old fashioned Uncle George. Now, before you furry on to the football ground, I' want to say a word about your Uncle George. I knew him when I was a boy. He was a young man then, and the laziest man, I think, in the colonies. His clothes used to mildew before he had moved about in them enough to wear them' out. He could sit longer on a five-barred gate, his hat pulled over his eyes, blinking at the sun, than any man I ever saw. He' didn't waste...

FlANCISC.Q,: The drive in Sain Francisco is to the Cliff House, through the Golden-gate Park, and Americans like buggy-driving before any other kind of pastime An hour's pleasant drive or ride in a street-car brings you to this pleasure resort, and it is delightful to stroll about the cliffs and beach, and see the numerous seals disporting themselves on the rocks..
