' : Dear me, Leta, you're, quite well no ;; I'm sure you don't need to watch for the doc :or's visits that way." "But my head is so tired, and it always does me good to see him." 'Well, seeing all he does is to look in your face, and take your hand so and say, ' How is my little patient this morning?' I don't see what good he does you. " When are you coming riding again with me, Leta? I've a new horse that would not shy at a circus band." Julian's voice was soft and' guttural,;-" as if," as some one says, "he brought every word to the tip of his tongue, tasted it, and liked the flavor." Julian's voice was always soft to Leta. " Oh, it's so hot, and my head is so tired," and the beautiful head fell back wearily among the cushions. A clatter of horses' feet. The fair head lifted just a little.- A question, and the raised voice of a servant in reply. T...
Latest Medical Science. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
Latest Medical `Science. There was' an accouiit in a paper recenttly of a man who had'the tendon fro ?dia~dog' leg successfully placed in 'his leg, where a tendon ' had. toi be removed. -The tenidon of I the dog's leg worked well, and the man, was not a cripple. ` Before advocating'the-use of "dog tendons in human 6gs, we shlould like to subject :the man to: an experimenit.-'?? should be taken out into the:woods, where i there are rabbits. Of" course, if the man. could. see a rabbit without a desire'to chase the, animal, the' dog's telidoni wul' d be :all right, but if he :should -puit:his. nose to the. ground and go galloping off after the rabbit, :barking like a dog, it would place him in an embarrassinig positidn. We do not know that a tendon from a dog's leg, placed i? a man's leg, would have that effect, but. if we were iu that man's- place ..we would go around among rabbits a' good deal, to watch the' effect, and alsomix?up with do?gs some, and see what the; symptoms' would b'...

His Initials. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
His Initials. There used to live in one of the suburbs an old gentleman who had a very reprehen sible habit of gossiping rather freely. about his neighbors. One day he was making some.,,, very severe remarks about some one, when one of his auditors asked "Say, Mr. B., who is it you're talking:?-. = about?" "Well, replied the old gentleman, "~well, to tell you the truth, I don't care to mention any names, but his' initials are.: Bill Joh?n son !" The cat cleared the bag with all four feet that time.
That Awful Box. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
That Awful Box. Most men are honest and respectable -till, they go into the witness box. We have had. neighbors whom wehaveregarded aspatterns of propriety, and to whom we would lend anything, from a stew-pan to a guinea um brella, without the slightest fear, until they were called upon to bear witness in a court of law as to the rightful owner of a speckled" hen, or to prove who struck the first blow in a case of common assault.. Then we were surprised to find them regarded as low thieves, receivers of stolen property, and the offspring of murderers and horse thieves. We have been shocked and grieved to find the man, with whom we have associated on terms of equality, turn out under the skilful cross-questioning of a cheeky lawyer with his character worse stained than a boarding house tablecloth. The man who wishes to keep clean in the eyes of the world should avoid the witness-box as he would a viper and an evil-minded tigress. Once we were whiter than the snow; our name was good a...

A Large Order. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
*, A Large Order. A countryfied-looking individualturnediuipo 4p one day not long since at a certain brewery. and informed the manager that he had a "large order" to give, and asked to sample the beers. The manager, all politeness, di-??? rectly heard the magic words-" large order", -directed the cellerman to "show the gen tleman sound, and let him taste all the beers." , This the cellerman did, but the visitor::; seemed hard to please. He sampled cask.; after cask-taking a fall glass from each but he did not seem to be satisfied ; one beer was " too dark," another" too pale," another " too bitter," another " too sweet," and so on, till it seemed as if he would have to go away and give the large order to someone else. At length, he pitched on a brewing that pleased . : him, and smacking his lips, he remarked " That'll do; I'll take some of that." His wish was conveyed to the manager,: and that gentleman remarked "Glad you like that beer, it is very good.: How much shall I send you 2...

Tact. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
Tact, One of the best qualifloations with which a business man can be bleat is that of tact. It takes the place of capital very largely, and is almost a stepping-stone to success, backed by honesty and good judgment. One man gets on amazingly well where another man has almost starved; and the difference is not to be explained on any other supposi tion than that the influence brought to bear on purchasers has been more powerful in the one case than in the other. What is this power?. It is not merely politeness, much less sycophancy. It is not simply the ability to press for custom. But now and then we find men. who can at once create sympathy towards themselves. They have that persuasiveness of manner, Ithat attrac tiveness of eye, that winningiess of voice, but chiefly that genuine, wide and thorough knowledge of human nature that levels all distinctions, and places them unconsciously on a level footing with all pith whom they come in contact, thus establishing mutual respect and sy...
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. H. RowE.-Your letter is very nice, but we feel ourselves in a peculiar position. What are you-male, female, masculine, or feminine? If any, state which next time you write. We are plagued on to the borders of the grave by people who write to us and sign themselves T. Brown, or H. Jones, or B. Smith, and leave their sex a dark mystery. We chanced, in a jovial moment, to address one of these as " old cock " in a letter, and a hungry father called round next day and wanted to paddle in our gore. fMATTnI writes- from queensland asking for a reliable'cure for "son' stroke. Marriage, Mattie, marriage; it cures after one applica tion. FARmR.--Now, how can you, in cold blood, discuss a head of cabbage under the head of "Phrenology?" To describe a J.P.'s occi put under the head of " vegetables" would be strictly correct, but this is. gross ignorance go to, farmer ! Go to, and get burnt.

Out-Lying. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 4 June 1887
Out-Lying. It was in the bar parlor of a city pub. And two disciples of Isaak: Walton were producing fabulous yarns as to the sizes and weights of their several piscatorial captures, vieing with each other until the credulity of their audience was fairly exhausted, when a quiet :old gentleman inthe corner asked : "Do-both you gentlemen live in Sydney?" "Yes," was the reply of one fisherman. " Why do you ask ?" said the other. "Oh, nothing," replied the ancient, pre -paring to depart; "but I thought you came from an out:lying suburb." And he gently closed the door behind hiinm, and passed out into a cold and unsympathetic world.

SNo.- precious." 'i Why ? Don't you like hearts as well as you used to?" 'Certainly, my child." " Well, then, why dosen't papa send you a lot of them ?" :!" Becanse, my unsophisticatedlittlecherub, papa thinks more of his stomach now- than he does of any heart." The cherub says, "Oh 1" and wonders if that is the, reason why papa always growls when dinner isn't ready.

' The old horse' trotted along:at a good gait until he came in sight of a little brown cottage setting 'well back from, the street, when'he suddenly swerved out of the roadway, without any guidance from, the reins, and came to a dead stop before the gate. : Mrs Ray thought this rather stranige, and, whipping up the old horse, started home. ,',.Three or four days later she was driving 'along'the same quiet street, when the horse again swerved out of the roadway and stop ped before the cottage.'

" 'Will you be so kind as to tell me who lives here?', asked Mrs.' Rae, surve...

I've rose my claim to six hundred. pounds, and' I'm goin' to push it until somebody hollers for mercy."
