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

Eccentric Gastronomists. Some one' has well said' that what is one man's meat is another man's poison. The history of gastronomy furnishes, us with abundant examples of this" truth. ' Louis XIV. is described as a very great eater, and the Duchess of Orleans declares in her memoirs that she often saw him eat, four platefuls of different soups, a whole pheasant or partridge, a plateful of salad, mutton hashed with garlic, -two good slices of ham, a dish of pastry, and afterwards fruit and sweetmeats. Napoleon Bonaparte loved to satisfy his appetite the moment he 'felt the sensation of hunger, and even when on a campaign his table service was so arranged that at any hour the slaves of his will promptly set be fore him roast fowl, cutlets, and smoking coffee. His cook must have been kept con stantly employed. Before the battle of Leipsic he ate voraciously of roast shoulder of mutton, stuffed with onions,, and is said to have lost the day because he was suffering so severely from indige...

"O,U,G,H." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

"O,, IT, H.'" These four letters, as finals to words in daily use in this country, are certainly, a puzzle to foreigners./ First, we have the rhyme : Though the tough coagh and hiccough plough me through, O'er life's dark lough my course I still pur sue. The difficulty, however, to those who know is not so great after all. Take, for instance,. the following simple key : If your first line ends with cow, Rhyme o w with plough ; Should your second nicely go, Seek o long, as found in though; Thirdly, would you try this too, Double o is found in through ; * Fourth, a variance we'are taught, Like a u is heard.in thought ; Speak you, fifthly, of a sorrow, Give the o obscure in borough ; In the sixth place, ,you may pick up Sound of up in a hiccough ;" -Turn your seventh couplet of, Assuming of as in cough; Eighthly, sing you of a rock, Echo c k with a lough ; Ninth and last, and quantum suff., Sound uf, and cry-enough!

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. THE JUBILEE PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. BY Sues SNELLT, THE JUBILEE PICTURE. Judging from a rough calculation, there are twelve thousand seven hundred and a fraction persons prowling round Melbourne endeavoring to sell high-colored Jubilee pic tures of Her Majesty the Queen, as she appeared when in the pink of condition. If those pictures are reliable we arrive, by induction and a simple mathematical prob lem, at the fact that Victoria by the grace weighs fifteen stone two pounds and a bit first thing in the morning, and so the com mon boast of the loyal that she has filled the British throne so well loses much of its sig nificance; it would be a very large throne which she could not fill ; she is very robust. It seems to us that all the fish hawkers, book-agents, pedlars of corn-cure, sewing machines, eye-wash, floury potatoes, and tinware have resigned those light and lucra tive callings, or else sold out to Chinamen, and assuning a suave address and an air of respectability have started harrassing...

Peculiarities of Policemen. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

Peculiarities of Policemen. Much amusement.is frequently occasioned by the manners and sayings of witnesses in our various courts of justice, and this invari ably finds -a record 'in our public prints. Quite as much fun, however, can be extracted from the -peculiarities displayed by our guardians of the peace; these, too, not being confined to the rural districts, but often oc curring in our metropolitan courts. Soon after the first formation of the city police, one member of the force informed the magistrate that his case was "No. 9, ye washup, against a female woman for pretty harnessing"-the charge actually being for petty larceny. On the same day one of his confreres, on being cross-examined as to how he was capable of giving so detailed an ac count of the occurrences of the previous night, told the court he was certain he was correct, as "it was a moonlight night, though the Melbourne moon was not so good a one as they had in Ballarat"--he .had come from Ballarat. Not so long s...

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

First Prize. A butcher at .the Western market last week displayed the carcase of. a fine, fat heifer that had taken first prize at an agricultural show; and the monster of fat, which was considered the pride of the market, was hung up in a most conspicuous place, in order to attract the gaze of all beholders. Dr. C--, a wealthy-doctor of laws, was providing good cheer for the entertainment of a few choice friends,, and ordered of the butcher four ribs of the tempting-looking beef. The man, unwilling to cut up the animal until it had enjoyed a full share of admiration, wrote upon a piece of paper, "Prize Heifer-four ribs for Dr. C- ; ;" this he pinned upon the carcass of the beast. Shortly after the doctor 'quitted the market, and a very stout young lady and her mother came up to the stall to make some purchases ; a young man was leaning care 'essly against it, watching with bright eyes the busy scene. Being an uncommonly mischievous fellow, and very fond of prac tical jokes, a thoug...

How They Went Housekeeping. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

flow They Went House-, keeping. Mr. Johnny Warner, aged 24, book-keeper to a drapery firm, and recently married to a pretty little school teacher of 20, had some very grand ideas concerning a future home. The question of a home had been, in fact, he only point in all their long ten weeks of married life over which Mr. and Mrs. Johnny, had warmed into anything that could, in the .most florid judgment, be deemed a dispute. "Let us have our 'ain fireside,' though it have only brick holes," was the stand taken by Mrs. Johnny. "Let us wait until we can at least have things. respectable," was the bronze pedestal on which Mr. Johnny planted his feet with italical firmness. Meanwhile they boarded. Mr. Johnny Warner's ideas of housekeeping had been gleaned from his Aunt Ann's home in the country-a dreary, sour-aired home in which he had been "brought up "' in a sorry fashion, and from which he had made his es cape at an early age. He always shuddered when he thought of that dark and musty pa...

The "Household" Column. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

The ".ousehold " Oolumn. In their way, " Household Departments " are very good adjuncts to a newspaper when edited by,a woman ;but the male journalist who dabbles with the heaven-inspired mys teries of cooking runs a frightful risk. The editor of the Back Block Bugle started a colamn of that kind recently, and a few days afterwards a fierce looking female came into the office, carefully concealing some object behind her apron. "Are your the man that published that new and imrproved_ way to make currant cake 7" He said he was. "You said to mix washing soda with the flour, and stir in a little corn meal and sweet oil to give it consi!tency 7" "I--I-believe so." " And to add fifteen eggs and some treacle, and two ounces of gem arabic, and set in a cool place to bake 7" " I think that was it."

For the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 18 June 1887

r_______ Hoods are coming again into.vogue, and are one of the most sensible styles we have to men- C tion. Heliotrope, navy blue and grey are .the present colors to be seen in all shades; and i dark green and ruby are also much liked. Checks and both broad and narrow stripes, mixed with the plain materials are greatly used by costumieres. Black lace mantelets have been occasionally remarked, but the season is rather cold for them as yet, though, being lined | with some bright color, they have a more suit able effect on a fine day than might be ex pected. Hats are of all kinds and much too fantastically trimmed in many cases, when a combination of flowers, feather and high loops is used. They are seen principally in black, but sometimes in red ; the most popular is per-. haps the " pierrot," the shape of which has a tall and tapering crown, with velvet bound, close, deep rim; but those turned up at the back, and standing out from the forehead, seem also to have their admirers.

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

Buried Alive. An Irishman took a contract to dig a well   on a farm. When he had dug about twenty five feet down, he came one morning and found it caved in-filled nearly to the top.   Pat looked cautiously round, and saw that no person was near, then took off his hat and coat, and hung them on a wind lass, crawled into some bushes, and awaited events. In a short time the citizens discovered that the well had caved in, and seeing Pat's hat and coat on the windlass, they supposed that he was at the bottom of the excavation. Only a few hours of brisk digging cleared the loose earth from the well. Just as the citizens had reached   the bottom, and were wondering where the body was, Pat came walking cut of the   bushes, and coolly said: "Phat's up'"   "Why, Pat, is that you?" said the citizens; "we thought you were at the bottom of the well." '"Never fear for that same," said Pat, "I     was only a...

He started with a will, but the rope broke. I happened to be looking on at the time, and noted an expression on the balky horse's face which was as near an approach to a:laugh as I ever expect ,to, see on 'an equine countenance. It ,was even more expressive' than: a laugh, for it" was a sardonic smile of complacency.
