The :Toast of the Queen.: English loyalty is commonly ;verbose. enough, andl effloresces in ornate periods: quite naturally. A verbatimi report ? fa o. speech, in giving the toast. of- The;Queen,'. at a recent .agricultural show diindr in Schotland, is going the rounds of ' tle press, which :illustrates. loyalty of the inarticilite sort.

M. Victor Saint Paul has placed £1000 at the disposal of the Paris Academy of Medi cine as a prize to any person, whatever may be his vocation or nationality, who shall suc ceed in discovering an infallible means of, curing diphtheria. A new claimant for the invention of the.' telephone has appeared, and M. le Comte du' Moncel supports him. So early as 1854 Charles Borseul, a Frenchman, is reputed to have invented the telephone substantially as, it is now, and published his discovery in the autumn of the year mentioned. The Weekly Medical Review states that the smoke test is being used in England and.. Scotland with great satisfaction. It is ap. plied by a small machine with powerful fan ners, which blow the smoke of ingited cotton waste, saturated with oil, into the drainage system, 'and in' due time the smoke issues from all defective points and imperfect traps showing the leakage. Professor E. Fazio has been making notes in Ischia as to the impressions made upon the victims befor...

A GREAT TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
A GREAT TEMPTATION. Alice Arnden was not a woman .one would select for a heroine because of her personality. She was neither large nor small; she was beautiful, I think (beauty is a hard thing to define and limit), but it was a beauty of no wonderful or unusual type, and was of that kind which grows on one gradually as his knowledge of the possessor of it grows. There was a wealth of sweetness and'purity shining up in her eyes which tears could never wash out; and the mouth indicated firmness and resolution, which had its begin. ning long before the night's vigil which had left it so sternly agonised. ,The, trouble which has come to Alice Arnden is of no unusual kind. It is a sud den sorrow, of a kind which has crushed out all hope in life, many times in the past; and will many times in the future, as long as men and maidens are proud and wilful. One may say, "?Only a lover's quarrel," but one should remember, that there are heart tragedies in this world, under the torture of which ...
Agricultural, &c. BRIEF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
BRIEF NOTES. All the rubbish that can be converted into manure should be-saved. Beans are liable to be injured, by heavy rains,- and should be pulled as soon as they are ripe. Leave the vines in rows for a time to cure. .. run in the pasture at night, is much rel ishled by the workl:horses, but the 'regular ample stall feed should be giiren them before being turned out. SA bushel of seed wheat to the acre is ample, if the land is in, good heart and well prepared. Otherwise sow a bushel and a half: .If with this quantity of seed you cannot raise a full crop, wheat will not pay you at all, and you had better sow something else. , ,-There is no way in which the farmer can get the produce of his farm to market in so comnpact and valuable a form as in the pro. ducts of the dairy. - In this form the farmer pays a smaller tax in the form of tran sportation charges than in almost any other.

Good Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
Scandal will rub out like dirt when it is dry. Contaet with the world either breaks or hardens ther heart. 'He who knows only his own side` of the case, knows little of that. Variety of mere nothings gives iore plea sure than unifoinity of something. The world is'comedy'to those who think, a tragedy to'those.who feel. Love without.esteem cannot reach far, nor rise 'ery high; it is an angel with but one Bad temper is 'its'own -scourge. Few things are bitterer than to feel bitter. ,A man's venom poisons himself more than his victim. Experience shows that success is' due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to work, body and. soul. So great a happiness do I esteem it. to :be loved that I fancy every blessing, both from gods and men, ready to descend spontane ouslyi upon him who is loved. Man lives apart, but not alone; He walks among his peers,, unread ; The best of thoughts that he hath known, For lack-of listeners, are never said. Pride, ill-nature and wan...
LORD R. H. SPENCER-CHURCHILL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
LORD 1., H. SPEWEUR-CHURCHILL. ORD RANDOLPH HENRY SPENCER SCHURCHILL is a son of the late Duke o fMarlborough, by Lady Francis Anne Emily, eldest daughter of the Marquis of Londonderry. He was born in 1849, and was educated at Merton College, Oxford. In 1874 he married Jennie, the daughter of L. Jerome, Esq., of New York. He first became member of Parliament in 1874, when he was elected in the Conservative interest as member of Wood stock. His parliamentary actions have, at 'least of late, given apparent evidence of that want of harmony in the councils of the Conser vative party of which so much capital has been made by their opponents. He has gone far be yond his nominal chief in his attacks on Mr. Gladstone and the Liberals, and has many times declared his independence of party discipline and party counsels. The. noble lord is a " chartered libertine" in politics, and the House is amused and interested in his escapades.

Marcy came running to grandma in great excitement. "Oh, grandma," she cried. " Nellie's going off up the road bare-headed !" Nellie hadn't any harness on.

COMIC INCIDENTS. HOW THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES ARE OFTEN INTERRUPTED BY ODD HAPPENINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
COMIC INCIDENTS; HOW THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES .'ARE OFTEN INTERRUPTED BY ODD HAPPENINGS. The performance of a play, like the course of true love, does not always run' smooth. Interruptions will constantly occur, and whatever want of effect there may be in the play itself, there is generally plenty of it in the unrehearsed incidents. They are fre quently those touches of nature which make the whole .house, for the moment, kin. There are, indeed, sarcastic people who con sider these unrehearsed effects as the best of the "show," and wish that the plays themselves could be only half as natural. One source of these effects is the strong hold which the illusion of the scene takes upon unsophisticated spectators. We have all heard of the sailor who, seeing the virtu ous heroine of the piece beset by wretches, jumps over the footlights to her defence. An adjuration to "Let that gal alone, won't yer," has often been heard at the East End and over the water. It is not always gal. lery occupan...

A PARTIALLY NEW SUBJECT. "We ought to do something about this Band of Hope," suggested the religious editor, scratching his head dismally, and looking hopelessly at the managing editor. " I don't know exactly what we ought to do, but we ought to do something." "What is it all about?" asked the manag ing editor, glancing up wearily. ".What is the Band-of Hope? How many times have I told you not to interfere inpolitics ?!" "The Band of Hope isn't politics," sneered the. religious editor. "It's a Sunday school teiiperance organisation.": - "' Well, what about it ?'.' demanded the managing editor, impatiently. "' Do they want to be brought, before the public ? Are they after'a notice"' " ' "Not that I have Beard of. But you told me to pick, some religioun. subject, and I thought we might have, something about that, if. you couldn't think of anything else.

THE BRIDE OF A DAY. CHAPTER THE SECO)ND. S (Concluded.) Eleanor did everything correctly. Since SMaietta was determined to leave het, she should go ; but it should be under the escort of their old servant; and she should only start for home when Miss Lascelles was . reiidy to let her go. Therefore Marietta and the artist did meet again, but the young girl looked so cold and held her head so high that he did not venture to speak to her. He was young, this was his first love, and his failure, even so much as to make it known, plunged him into the depths of despair. When, with a tenderness and grace for which few people would have given her credit, Miss Laseelles broke to him the news of the young girl's departure-"I am afraid she wishes to escape from us," she said-he was like one distraught. If it was he who had caustd the breach between them, he earnestly entreated to be allowed togo away anywhere, in the world or out ift," But Miss Lascelles answered, with regret, that things were ...
