THE INEXHAUSTIBELE BOTTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

TilE INIEXIIAUSTIBLE BOTTLE.); The inexhaustible bottle, which produtices' different liquors, and apparently in endless quantity, was first made popular in this coun try by l'rofessor Anderson, and since his day has been exhibited by very many "magnicians." .Oflatoeyears, it has been sold in the toy-shops and the public have learned that its ellect is duo in part to a well-known principle in phy sics, and in part to the wine-glasses used, which are made so as to contain at most not nore than a thiaablehull. The trick having become common and generally understood, conjurors began to look about for a means whereby sonmething similar in effect might be produced, but by altogether dissimilar mealls. The result is a bottle-trick in which lager beer is furnished in sufficient quantity to satisfy the thirst of a large audience. It is a very effective trick, and to it one well known performer almost entirely owes his success. It is only suitable for public exhib ition, however, as the beer ...

DIAMOND CUT DIAMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

DIAMOND CUT DIAMOND. "I've come all the way in from Canaan to git a leetle law," said a man with a horse whip under his arm, blue overalls in his boots, and a grey, stubby beard on his face, us he entered the Allen-house reading-room, where a number of the boys were talking polities, " lebbe some o' you fellers kin give me the correct thing without the nlick erin' of a lawyer," The speaker was a well kown farmer of the southern part of the country. He and his son Jim are noted for their sharpness at a bargain, and a readiness to trade horses, cows, waggons, farms, or anything that be longs to them, at any and all times a cus tomer may present himself. Jim lives on a farm, a mile from the old man's. " Ye see, boys," continued the speaker, " my boy Jim had a baymare that he traded a yearlin' bull and a cross-tooth harrow fur. She was a good critturi an' no mistake. I wanted that mare the west kind, an' mnde Jim 4 heap o' good offer for her, but he wouldn't' bite. Last'Wclnesday he cam...

Tales and Sketches. "FIRE!" [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

"FIRE !" I don't know who built Merriton-street, Lambeth; but, whoever it was, must have been a sharp fellow, and meant to make money. By the look of the houses, I should say that they were built about the days of William IV., and they were well built, too -even to this day looking better and more substantial than plenty of youri suburban rows of villas that have not. beenuup:ten years. But then, as I said, the man who huilt them meant to make money, and the way to do that, in the long run, was to put in good work. His cunning consisted in the number of houses that he contrived "to r-n up on the narrow strips of land on each side of the road. For there they stood-two rows of very tall, very_ narrow houses, with deep areas and highpitched, sharply-sloping slate roofs. There was something wrong with one of these houses-a great crack in the front through the giving way of a large drain-so the owner had it pulled down and rebuilt; but when it was down we all laughed to see what a tiny b...

The Warragul Guardian. THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1881. YOuNG men in the country often feel thmee hang heavy on their hands in the evening. In towns there are lectures, concerts, and other meetings; so many calls to be made, and friends to be received, that the evenings go merrily by. But in the bush, especialy of South Gippsland, people, by living far apart, are thrown more on their own r. sources to make life happy, and very often these resources are neither great nor nu nerons. And so it is that anything that holds out a prospect of an evening's enter tainment is eagerly seized, without enquir ing too closely into its moral or intellectual tendency. "All work and no play will make Jack a dull boy" is a liroverb no less true of young than of old Jack. Recreation of some kind must be obtained; and if that recreation can be made a means of improving a man's mind, much will be gained. 3iutual improvement associations offer a great deal in this way to their members. They meet, and are revived by each other's friend...

Wit & Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

According to tihe articlesof war, it is death to stop a cannon ball. " Tis is what I call capital punishment," as the boy said when his mother shut him up in the closet among the Red Gross preserves. A man advertises for " a competent person. to undertake the sale of a new medicino; and adds that " it will he found profitable to the undertaker." No doubt of it. A wife once boasted of having out and nade a shirt for her husband.in one day. "Yes," replied a wag of a fellow, "and he wore it out the next. When you are in at a neighbors in the evening, and a man asks his wife how long she will be before aho is going to bed, you may safely conclude that you had better leave. "No man can do anything against his will," said a metaphysician to an Irishman. "Be jahbera ! I had a brother," said Pat, " that wint to gaol, an' faith, I know that it was greatly against his own will." At the Sydney Hotel, the other day, a lady who wished for some stuffing front a roast fowl, which a gentleman was c...

A STROLL THROUGH THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

A STROLL THROUGH THE IIEL BOURNE EXHIBITIOi. My friend and I are uncomfortably sure that when the Exhibition is over we shall indulge in many vain regrets that we did not visit it more frequently, inspect its contents more carefully, and drink its lager beer more copiously while opportunity to do so served us. It you, my dear sir, or most gracious madam, desire to escape similar compunction, you should make the best use of the few remaining days of March, for when the month departs the glory of the Big Show will go with it. In other words, some exhibitors, i.e., the Ger. mans, will dose their courts anti pack up, while others will clear out ." sold " exhibits, and leave their stalls in very ill-furnished con. uition. As the German gallery closes without failon the 3rst, my friend and I have been saturating our :asthetrc souls with every beauty of form and color which is to be appropriat:ed in that snug receptacle of the fine arts. But we get puzzled sometimes, and that disturbs the ...

LOOKING-GLASS SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

LOOKING-GLASS SUPERSTI TIONS. As a piece of furniture the looking glass is most necessary, and its very im portance is, perhaps, among the chief reasons why superstitious fancy has in vested it with those mysterious qualities which certaiuly do not belong to chairs and tables., A chair, however beautiful and costly in its manufacture, may be cruelly broken with perfect impunity; whereas, if some wretched,, dilapidated mirror is accidentally cracked, such an event is sure to be followed by misfor tune of some kind or other. Most read ers are, no doubt, acquainted with iBona. parte's superstition on this point. During one of his campaigns in Italy, he broke the glass over Josephine's portrait. So disturbed was he at this, as he thought, ominous occurrence, that he never rested until the return of the courier whom he had forthwith despatched to convince himself of her safety, so strong was the impression of her death upon his mind. In Cornwall, breaking a looking-glass is believed to e...

ANECDOTAL PHOTOGRAPHS. ISABELLA II. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

ANECDOTAL PHOTOGRAPHS. ISABELLA II. This august lady is fat, fair, and fifty, also frolicsome. As a child she may have dreamed of happiness, as a woman she has had to be content with amusement. To do her justice neither pleasure nor dis appointment has succeeded in souring her temper. She is a kindly soul, very kind indeed to those she likes, and not too spiteful to her enemies. Ferdinand VII. rendered his daughter but an ill turn when he revoked the Salic Law, which had been in force under the Bourbon dynasty. As a simple Infanta of Spain, Isabella would probably have enjoyed life more than as Queen of that faction-ridden country. One may pass over the fact that Ferdinand also be queathed a couple of civil wars and a standing pretext for rebellion to his un happy people; for Bourbon selfishness is proverbial. This King, by the way, is famous for savwing made almost as many matrimonial .entures as our Henry VII1. During a life of forty-nine years he led fire spouses to the altar, ma...

FaretiƓ. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 14 July 1881

Bald men are thie coolest.headed men in tho world. Can a man intoxicated by music be said tt he air-tight! The nman who was never understood, pro. bably wore his hoofs barefooted all his life. The purest joy we can experience in one we love is to see that person a source of'hap. piness to others. The strongest man feels thle influence of woman's gentlest thoughts, as the mightiest oak quivers in the softest breeze. The impecunious man who married an heiress always spoke of her as a capital wife. An exchange has an article on " Smoking ministers." Most of them are dry enough to smoke. This is the latest for wedding invitations: " Come around and see us capture a mother. in-law, at eight o'clock, sharp." The blind man should be the most con, tented man in the world, because lie call have everything le sees. "It's a long lIane that never has a turn," but the average paper collar generally comes to it by Wednesday. "Is your cough any easier "' asked 3eur. ply of an acqnaintance, on call...
