Auat Jane's Orchestral Ex perience; When I was up to the city last, I went to hear their band; : hey call it some outlandish name I couldn't understand. It plays in their big-music hall Law sakes ! It made me mad That that red curtain back o' them Needed a dustin'-bad. They played a piece called "Opus ten,"; Whatever that may mean ; Such a disturbance as they-made I never yet have seen. They started in all softly like, When-oh I it made me start A feller whacked a copper drum I s'pose he thought that .smart ! The leader shook a stick at him, As angry as could be. The more he shook, the more he struck. " I'll break this up," thinks he. And then I thought that I should die ; But, sure as I am born, A feller with a long brass tube Swallowed up half his horn.

Matilda Jane. A TRAGEDY. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 28 May 1887

Matilda Jane. A TRAGEDY. CHAPTER I.. She was tall and pale. She had a marble brow. It is quite the proper thing for heronies of romance to have marble brows. In ordinary life we have never met pale damsels with stone fronts, but we write not of ordinary life; we write the romance, we tell the tale of love, the yarn of agony. The maiden was beautifully fair. She leant upon the wicket-gate. Ah! happy wicket gate ! Would we were a wicket gate ! But we aint. Gaze enraptured upon that wondrous vission, note the depths of .those liquid orbs ! Could you bottom them with a clothes prop ? Nay, nor a fishing-rod. Her luxuriant hair almost falls to the ground as she stands; it would have fallen, but she caught it and fixed it on again. She waits the coming of her love. He, the pride of all the land, so tall, so strong, and yet a teetotaller. He, the great politician, so clever, so -distinguished, the member for Mudflat! The country is mad .about him, the brilliant orator ! Why, he talked for t...

For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 28 May 1887

Wedding toilettes are becoming altered in many ways fromwhathas been so long in vogue. The pretty and hitherto orthodox orange blossom is not now a necessary portion of it, and the flowers worn may be of any variety and not artificial. This last style of having natural blossoms is a charming one, if the blossoms chosen are of a kind to last well in heated at mospheres, but very few of the sort fit for such an occasion are strong enough to stand the various phases through which they must pass belore the wedding costume is changed for the travelling one, and a bride with fading wreath and dress-sprays would be anything but a plea sant sight. Orange-blossom, rose-buds, carna tions, &c., will last for some time,.but the list of such flowers is but a short one. Thebeauti ful lily of the valley is to be much used for bridal bouquets. The Greek style, as it is termed, is the last novelty in a bridal dress-it is wholly of white and silver fabrics, the front of the skirt being arrang...

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. JUBILEE LYRICS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 28 May 1887

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. BY SILAs SNELL. JUBILEE LYRICS. We are not angelic;. if an impression to that effect has got abroad, we will not be hield respoioi-blefor it- it-is eridieous, and we get up at daylight to seize the earliest opportunity of correcting the misqoncep. tion. . We are far from immaculate; we have done things which we ought not to. have done, and left undone things which we ought to have done, on a number of occasions. We often fall into wrapt contemplation of the gilt female pictured in the crown of our hat at church, and remain rapt. till the plate goes by ;. but we have never killed a poor widow or stolen a farm. and, vile as we are, we do not deserve to be afflicted with such a trial and tribulation as the Jubilee poem. We could suffer one Jubilee poem a day with the stoical forbearance of that philosophical patriarch, Job; but two are apt to make us mad and unfit to be at large. We have gone through a lot lately, and borne it with all the calni serenity at our co...

Bernhardt's Last Victim. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 28 May 1887

Bernhardt's Last Victim. The "divine Sarah" made a queer capture on her voyage between Mlontevideo and Val paraiso. The human fish that blindly swam into her always-extended net was none other than an English sailor employed on the good ship " Cotopaxi," that bore Sarah and her fortunes round the Horn. From seeing her frequently on deck, it seems that he con ceived a violent passion for the celebrated artist, and attracted the attention of the en tire ship's company by his awkward attempts to plesse his inamorata. . One day, in conversing with his mates, he remarked that he would give anything to be a dramatist, and the happiest moment of his life would be that-in which, were he an actor as well as an author, he would share with Sarah in the applause aroused by their joint interpretation of the dramas of Scribe, Sardou, and Dumas. Just before the vessel arrived at Valpa raiso he confined to a few " pals " the fact that, in spite of his lack of stage trainingi he had decided to appea...

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. THE CHIMNEY SWEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. BY SILAs SNELL. TEE CHIMNEY SWEEP. ThW professor is always a dark, lank man. We do not know what instinct there is in the soul of the brunette which directs his talents towards the art of scouring flues, but we suppose it is synonymous with that strange, mysterious something in his nature, which enibles him to sustain a monopoly of the supply of heavy villains in modern melo drama. The sweep is a modest, retiring man. No body ever met a sweep's father, or mother, or wife, or Aunt Jane. When he is not out upon the highway, following his calling, he is either in a public-house or is a case of mysterious disappearance. Who ever knew a sweep in private life? Who ever saw him washed? We never yet came across a per son who could lay his hand upon his heart, and cl.im.n acquaintance with one of these useful gentlemen; and the party who be held one without a casing of soot upon his expressive countenance must' have died whlen we were yet a child, or else he has been pu...
