CARELESS FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

CARELESS FARMING. Year after year our farmers go on plant ing corn, potatoes and similar crops in rows twice as close as they should be, and so crooked that ploughing or cultivation after ward is impossible, even if intended, and then they sit serenely down and leave the result to Providence, without even again touching the ground with any sort of an im plement. Year after year Providence treats their silly faith in the same way, yet year after year they repeat it, as if trying some grand new experiment in some new country. A similar folly is seen in the treatment of trees. Yearly they are set out in holes not half as large as they should be, wet earth stamped around the roots to bake as hard as a brick, cultivated a little in winter and en tirely neglected in the summer, which is the very time, when the plough and cultivator should run the most incessantly. Will such folly never cease ? How many farms. or orchards indicate one-half of what the soil will do? And how many strangers m...

Little Folks. Little girl-," Mamma didn't you say thate was God's book,' pointing to a bible. Mamma -" Yes, dear; why ?" Little girl-" Well, if it is, how did it get here"?" -This was a poser for mamma and she changed the topic. Auntie to little niece-" Bertha, will you have some more bread ?" Bertha-"No." Auntie (in a shocked tone)-" No-what ?" Bertha-" No bread." A gentleman was once giving his children (two boys, aged three and five years old) a lesson on deceitfulness,,saying, for-example, that-to injure any one" behind his back was deceitful. About an hour afterwards the eldest boy came in howling to papa, saying, 'i P-p.papa, wasn't Karli deceitful ? He hit me on the back when I wasn't looking." Little five years old was at her lessons " Lottie, learn those words for me," said, her mamma, pointing to some words in a spell ing book.

A Mannerly Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

A Mannerly Youth. The other day a parson called on Tony, senior, with the object of doing his" best to wards reforming the manners of Tony junior. Tony junior is a rascally young co. lonial, with all a colonial's cheek. Tony senior listened patiently, while the parson rehearsed the object of his visit, to which.he replied " Parson, I'd let Tony go to church every Sunday if I only know'd you's goin' to preach; but, parson, there ain't a boy in the colony of Victoria what's got more manners than my Tony, and I can .convince you of that in just a: minute. You see: Tony out there skinning them eels ?" The parson nodded assent. " Now, see, 'I'll call him ;" and raising his voice to the highest' pitch, he shouted, "Tony "' The response was quick and equally loud-" Sir." "Do you hear that, parson ?" said the old man. "Don't you call that manners ?" "That's all very well," replied the parson, " as far as it goes." " What do you mean by .' far as it goes ?' That boy,- sir, always speaks resp...

Humorous Verbal Ambiguities. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

Humorous Verbal Ambiguities. The ambiguity of words and phrases is the occasions of numerous misapprehensions and absurdities in curren u literature. There is something quite facinating to some minds especially the juvenile, in that peculiar effect in words which is called a catch. A man endorsed his companion, who wanted to get trust for a bottle of wine with the' remark, " If he refuses to pay for it, I will." The man refused to pay for it, and so did his friend, as he said he would. For such a person we have no sympathy, but we must admit a lurking admiration of that dilapidated student of the subtle dis tinction of words, who, when trying to effect a free intrance to a theatre, was roughly told by the doorkeeper, "Here I can't pass you," and who replied, with dignity, as he passed in, " You need not pass me, my dear sir. Just you stand where you are, and I will pass you." Persons unaccustomed to composition fre quently express themselves in language which is liable to very absur...

How a Woman Stops a Conveyance. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

How a Woman Stops a Conveyance.. Do you ever notice how the average woman stops a tram-car or an omnibus ? She' stands right in the middle of the foot path, and looks both ways to see if the right car is in sight, just as if she expected it would come from both ways at once. She knows well enough which car she wants to take; but just to make sure, she asks the first gertleman who comes along, and then she consults the policeman at the corner. Then she stands and watdbes, and fixes her numerous bundles, and gets her parasol into working order. Then she drops a package, and in picking it up jabs a small boy in-the eye with her parasol-handle, and knocks back the hat of a short-sighted man in working the parasol back into place. And when he swears, she looks astoniished, and when she drops another bundle at his feet, and he tramps on over it, she feels that he oug't to be lynched on the spot, and she will tell the next woman 'she meets about what a dreadfully rude man she encountered, ...
