TWO USES FOR A CANE. A well dressed man, says the New York Sun, who sat in a forward row at the Star Theatre, lifted the head of a handsome silver headed walking stick to his right ear the mo ment the curtain rose and kept it there all through the play. A tiny curved silver tube projected from the handle and fitted easily in the orifice of his ear. "What are you trying to do with that stick ?" asked a man behind him who had watched him with constant increasing curi osity. the manturnedthe point of the handle towards the questioner an. the question was repeated. "Oh,"heanswered, "this is a new style of ear trumpet. It is made for pesopls who are hard of hearing and don't want to carry around an ear trumpet with thun everywhere they go.

AN IMPUDENT BARRISTER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 February 1895

AN IMPUDENT BARRISTER. Lord Eldon, when a barrister, made one of the neatest excuses, and one of the most im pertinent, too, ever offered to a British court of justice. A young counsel, lacking in self control,hearing judgment given against his client, exclaimed that he was astonished at ouch a decision. He was ordered by the judges to attend at the bar next morning to answer for his irregular remark, and Lord Eldon, then MHr. Scott, undertook to see his friend through the little difficulty. When the name was called, Scottrose, and said-" My Lords, I am very sorry my young friend has Eo far forgotten himself as to treat your honourable bench with disrespect. He is ex tremely penitent, and you will kindly ascribe his unintentional insult to his ignorance. You must see a; once it originated in that. He said he was surprised at the decision of your Lordships. Now, if he had nol been vec every day, had he but knownfyou half aslong as I have done, he would not have been osto. nished at a...

THE TIGRESS AND HER YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 February 1895

:9-E TIGRESS -AN1D HER YOUNG. "Like a tigress robbed of her young," is a common expression ihtended to de note intense ferocity. No doubt tigers, like most other ant mals, are attarhed to their Offspring, but contrary to popular belief, they, as a rule, prefer to sacrifice them rather than incur danger. This statement may probably surprise many of those who, livitg in England, endow the striped prowler of the woods with several good attributes, and who believe that she would always rather die than desert her-cuhs.Alas I for Jiger na ture that thi is not so. The truth is that never had aibeing a ~qutality mobre wrongly attributed to it than bravery to a tigress. - As soon astthe tom-toms beat near her den, Mddme. Tigress will make plans for escape, and if she sees a method of sav ing herself and her cubs she will do so; hut when, from the continued shouting and firing, she perceives that a regular planned attack is being made on her in her fastness, she only thinks of her own safety ...

THE MUSIC OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 February 1895

THE MUSIC OF THE FUTURE. All art constantly aspires towards the condition of music. .... It is the art of music which most completely realises this artistic ideal, this perfect identification of form and matter. In its ideal consummate movements the end is not distinct from the means, the form from the matter, the subject from the expression; they inhere in and completel saturate each other; and to it, therefore, to the condition of its perfect move ments, all the arts may be supposed con ?,tantly to tend and~asoire_ .AIi-=h Thorti noCpoetiry; as ?s often supp~osed, is< -the true type or measure of consummate art. Therefore, although each art has its incommunicable element, its untuans latable order of impressions, its unique mode of reaching the "imaginative rea son," yet the arts may be represented as continually struggling after the law or principle of music, to a condition which music a'one completely realises.- Walter Paklt

THE ACROBATIC WONDER. Relating some incidents of the life of the famous acrobat Majilton, a writer in the Philadelphia Press says: "He was with Spalding and Rogers when they ran their floating circus up and down the Mississipi and its larger tributaries, and it was while with these managers that he made himself famous in his character of Jocko in * Jocko; or, the Brazilian Ape.' " The original of the character was Harry Leech, an Englishman, whose professional name was Otto Motti. His body was of the size of an ordinary man's, but his legs were only a foot long, yet such was his agility that he could outrun, on all fours, a .eryfair runner. His skeleton is in Mme. Tussaud's exhibition in London. The Rauls after ward introducedth-s character in their pan tomimes, but it twas left to Majilton to brin, it to perfection. -He had waznerful strength in his hands, and could walk with his hands hanging on an ordinary floor joist, his whole weight depending upon the grip between his thumbs a...
