HIS APOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 4 May 1889

HIS APOLOGY. A delightful story is told of Thomas Poole., When " a person of somd loca' impor nee? ; and with certain claims to respect and deference," which everybody recognised, took it in his head to hold forth in Poole's presence-perhaps out of pure love of irritating a fellow cireature :in aultho ritative disparagement of Coleridge and Wordsworth,. Poole boiled over, and told the reviler, in the most emphatic manner, that he was a fool. ..Poole was sorry for it afterwards '" Did I call him a fool? How very wrong of me! How very wrong ! Would it do any good to apologiso? I am sure if it would give him any satisfaction, I would apologiso in a momet."' So he returned. "1 am sure, sir, I am very sorry I was rude to you justnow I apologise most, sincerely. I wish I wasn't so hasdt"' It" wis extremely' wronsg-of me. But--but-but-(with a gulp, as if he were all but choking,)-how could you be such a confounded fool?"

A LADY PAGANINI. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 4 May 1889

A LADY PAGANINI. SI If report, speaos truly, we shall shortly (says the London correspon dent of the Dublin Mail) witness the debut of a young lady of fifteen sum mers, whose talent lies in playing with extraordinary dexterity on the single string of a violin. The Poga. nini-like damsel is said to be a marvel in her way. She is the daughter of a rich city merchant, and almost in her infancy began to develop a remark able taste for mnsic. Her father encouraged it, and her enthusiasm and indomitable persoverence sur prised and delighted all who knew her. She had her violin in her hand 'eight or nine hours every day, and then-only relinguished it at the strict injunction of her parents, who were afraid that her health might become impaired. Recently the young lady has developed a taste for performing extraordinary feats on one string, and she is now 'desirous of displaying her accomplishments on the concert plat form. The only obstacle is her father, who is at present strongly averse t...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. AFTERNOON-TEA GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 4 May 1889

THE LADIES' COLUMN. AFTERNOON-TEA GOSSIP. BY ELLA. Longfellow is said to have been one of the most generous and kind-hearted of men, and, in consequence, received many extraordinary requests for help. One of the most peculiar was that miadle by a girl living some distance from, and quite un known to, him. It was that she wanted a piano, ani " was sure' the poet would encourage youthful talent andisead herone. The bohlness of the letter so disgusted the recipient, that his refual was a very stern one, much to the delight of his daughters. Perhaps the following " nursery jingle," composed by Longfellow for his little girl Edith, may not be familiar to some of our young readers : Tliere was n littlo girl Who had a little curl That hung right down onher forehead, And when she was good She was very, very Rood, And when sho was bad she wns'horridl Now, I'm like that little girl Who had a little curl Bight down on'the middle of her forehead, or when I am good I mn very, very good, And when...

From what can be learned it is quite on the cards that our local senior club, the St. Kihla, will occupy a very prominent position in the list at the close of the ceason. Since their amalgamation with lrahmn, interest in the St. Kilda club has been steadily on the increase, and at pro oent they have a very large following in deed. Several of last year's playerswill be found absent from the team this sieason, but their places have been lilled by some very gooal players.

SELECTED POETRY. THE TOPER'S SOLILOQUY. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 4 May 1889

SELECTED POETRY. THE TOPER'S SOLILOQUY. All the world's a pub, And all the men and women merely drinkers; They have their hiccoughs and their stagger ings; And one man in a day drinks many glasses, His ants being seven stages. At first the gentleman, Steady and steadfast in his good resolves; And then the wine and hitters appetiser, And pining, yearning look, leaving like snail The comfortable bar. And then the argn. ments, Trying like Herclces with a wrathful front age To refuse one more twopenn'orth. Then the mystified, Full of strange thoughts, unheeding good advice, Careless of honor, sodden, thick, guttural, Seeking the troubled repetition Even in the bottle's mouth; and then quite jovial, In fair good humor while the world swims round, With cyes quite misty, while his friends him cut, Full of nice oaths and awful bickerings; Anl so he plays his part. The sixth stage shifts Into the stupid, slipping, drunken man, With "blossoms" on his nose and bleary. eyed ; His shrunken face ...
