The Boy Who Will Remember the Jubilee. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887

The Boy Who Will Remember the Jubilee. :In an nupcountry town, they were m'aking great p eparations to celebrate the JiJllee. The walls of a private school there were liter ally covjered with green b ,ughs, with the exception of a space over the teacher's desk. One of the boys had promised to furnish an enpa-;^g of Queen Victoria, to aid in the decos.tion, and it was for this that the space! w:i ?t? bare. Finally, just as the teacher' •was g.ttiog out of patience at the boy's delay, she hailed his approach with joy, and even went so far as to carry a step-ladder over, and placed it beneath the space where the picture was to be hung. The boy came up all out of breath, and on being asked for the engraving, handed the teacher a postage stamp. The boy has not been in his usual good spirits aince, and it is the teacher's opinion that ne will remember Q teen Vic toria's Jubilee as long as he lives. At least, she did her best to make that day as warm for him as possible.

A Life Biography. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887

A Life Biography. Signor Tiziano Vermicelli Titian was born, just before cold weatherset in 1477, at Ci dore, about seventy. miles up the line from Venice. For many generations his family had been engaged in the general fame and military distinction business, which had never paid very well, and the old man, after he was defeated for supervisor, soured on the whole course of his ancestors, and made up his mind he would get his son into some pro fession which would bring ducats and honor without changing the combination. The future artist, who was usually called " Tishy " at home until he became large and strong enough to bear his full name, gave evidence, when only ten years old, of his natural inclination. He stole his sister's make-up box from her dressing-table, and with only the half-dozen colors to work with he decorated his mother's rollng-pin in so artistic a manner that there was left noroom for doubt as to what his future course must be. The old man was delighted, and the ve...
