He Had Studied the Manual. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 June 1887
He Had Studied the Manual. *A young man who had been prominent in amateur clubs and pauliaments, and whose strongest point, his friends thought, was the very natural and easy way in which he grasped Parliamentary usage, recently began studying for the ministry, and progressed so far that he was invited to tike charge on a certain Sunday of the services in a subur ban church' where the minister had' gone for his vacation. "He'll be a shining light, without a doubt," said his fi nds. .But som.ehow, when the young man came to get ap in church to open the, service, he felt himself all at sea, and didn't know what in the world.to do. So he provided for all icontingencies by inviting one of the elders to sit up in the pulpit with him, where he would be on hand' if any 'knotty questioa 'arose. . 'After the young student had' pronounced" the` invocation, and the choir had got up.of its own motion and sung an anthem, and a chapter of the; 'Bible had beeii read, the young man turned a little ...

Ohild's Etiquette. A South Yarra lady was teaching her baby the prayer, " Now I layme." She had learned it as far as " If I should die," when there: was company expected to tea, and the little one was given her first lesson in table eti quette.

My Mother-in-law and I. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 11 June 1887
iMy Mother-in-law and I. I am Moses Muzzeythorpe. ' My wife is Mrs. Muzzeythorpe. The story is about her, and myself, too, in a lesser degree. Perhaps it may be a lesson to some husbands. If any man contemplating matrimony should read this, it may be a lesson to him. 'I am past help myself, and I am free to own it. Some men may help themselves. I can't. I tried, though, and that is what I am going to tell you about. We were as happy as bees in a sunflower until Mrs. Muzzeythorpe's mother came to stay with us. ,he said it would be such a help and comfort to Eliza-that's Mrs. Muzzeythorpe. It wasn't to me, though. She was an old lady, with a cinnamon-colored false front, two large eyes of different color, a complexion like a frozen russet apple, and teeth that would persist in dropping out every time she opened her mouth a little too wide. She didn't like smoking; she thought', I was a brute for staying out later than nine p.m.; and she thought Eliza was crazy for letting me use a lat...

From Sydney to New York : OVER THE RIO GRANDE AND BURLINGTON ROUTES. By E. W. Mooi,:of the Newr York J1irror. j(Continued.) CHICAGO, The city of Chicago has many points of interest to tourists, and has a wonderful his- i tory,'but our space will not admit of such a I lengthened accotlnt of the metropolis of the z West as it deserves. Situated on the shores t of Lake Michigan, a few minutes' walk from ' the Grand Pacific Hotel brings one to the I Lake side, where myriads of small craft are sailing about, presenting a very charming I appearance. Canals run up into the centre ( of the city, and vessels of all sorts and sizes a are discharging grain and lumber. Many of the streets have bridges over the canal to the E north side, and in some instances you can a walk or drive under the river by means of a tunnel. In catching a train, a quarter of an I hour's grace is always given the cabby on I consequence of the blocks which occur on t the various bridges during the passage of a vessels....

A ghost's garment is a shroud of mystery. - Strange as it may seem, when money is close it is difficult to get very near it.'. Fish is good brain food, but it does seem a pity, in some cases, to waste so much fish. "Johnny, have you a paternal governmenti at your house ?". Johnny-" We have so.

The Heavy Villain. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887
The Heavy Villain. We viewed him first in tragic play, A heavy villain dark and ruddy, Stealing beauteous maids away, Doing deeds both black and' bloody. Three cops he slew in conflict dire ,. And poked a baby down the sink, He stuck his grandma on the fire, Put arsenic in his father's drink.' Some fifty folks he then did brain All with a waddy full of lead, Because the rascal stood to gain A fortune if they all were dead. A man of terror he, and gore; Good'for murder, theft, and treason.: - He slew of Chinamen a score Without the slightest show of reason., * Next morn we saw him mild and fair, As we passed by his cottage door; His dear wife had him byithe hair, Banging his head upon the floor .

Mrs. Norton's Mind-Cure. :" Onde of the most striking instances of 'mind-cure' I ever saw," said a Sydney lawyer one day, "was exhibited in an old lady.client of mine; but it was a case of self-cure ..-Her name was Norton. - She had been a second wife. She was in bed, seriously ill, and sent for me to draw upher.. will. " I hastened to the house with paper and , pen. She lived on a farm- out toward,, Parramatta. I found a table and chair ready for me at the woman's bedside, and in a few moments I told her I was ready to prepare the will, if she would tell me what she wished its provisions to be. I wrote thei:" introductory phrase rapidly, and, leariing,, o er towards her,' said, 'Now go on, Mrs. Norton.' " Her -voice was quite. faint, and she seem to speak with an effort.

About the Gaffer. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887
About the Gaffer.. The hardest all-round swearer south of the Line is the railway gaffer. We know that an idea exists crediting the bullock driver with the Auistralian championship for ground and lofty profanity. It is erroneous; the boss over a gang of navvies can be called upon to swear the most voluble bullocky off his legs in thirty minutes ten seconds.. We knew a wild-eyed youth of some forty-seven summers who handled a gang in the early days when the Geelong to Ballarat line was in:course of construction. He was an artist at profanity, a perfect daisy; he rejoiced in contorting oaths into all sorts of grotesque meanings, and was as proud of his fame as a professional swearer, or as a game rooster who has just clawed the head off the rival bird next door, One morning McGinnis had his push delving in a cutting, and was treat ing them to a specimen of his floweriest style of oratory: "Now, shift those blanked shovels I Do you want the sun to burn the --- tail-board out: of the sa...
