Eyery-Day Philosophy. WHES weariness with life my spirit nil», . When deep disgust consumes me with my lot, I draw some store of comfort from the ills I haven't got. To find that fortune at your coming flies, . To he bankrupt in health, in fame, in parse. Is bad enough ; but, I philosophise, It might be worse. Incessantly we make a great ado. Tho month of Misery is wido «gape ; Bat happier we, I fanoy, if we knew What we escape. The common woes of life are bad enough. Misfortunes foll os easy os the dew, And still for every morning steak that's tough, ' There might be two. This one is sick : his wayward fate cries ont Against the leech, the calomel, the bed ; O inconsiderate person, cease to pout Yon might be dead 1 And this one hath the mitten ; be has wooed ; Vainly, alack, his wooing it hos sped; Well-even in this there's comfort, rightly viewed He might be wed! And here is one who whines : his all is swept Away in panic; he has had to "fail." He should, I think, be cheerful, tha...

The Opening Turf Season. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884
The Opening Turf Season. Every day brings ns nearer to tbe big sporting events of tbe coming year, and sportsmen all over the country are busy looking over and considering the entries, weights, and acceptances. The thorough exposure of the bogus con- sultation men, whose rascality compelled the legislature to stop all investments in that direction, leaves the sports- man precious little means of selecting and backing his fancy. The difficulty, however, has to a great extentbeen removed: Mr. E. E.Jones (the famous "Janitor," whose consultations were conducted from first to last with absolute straightness and fidelity) has notified his readiness re the events of the coming year. Mr. Jones, who is probably one of the best-known, and certainly one of tbe most trusted, men on the turf, executes commissions on the receipt of instructions by post or wire. Former patrons all through the country may rely on the latest and most reliable information being forwarded them, together with the very...
Beautiful Art Glassware. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884
Beautiful Art Glassware. Certainly it can be Raid that the great International Ex. hibition at the Garden Palace, Sydney, was not without its substantial benefits. The great Exhibition did a mutual service in showing the colonial world something of the art industries of Great Britain, and at the same time of point- ing ont to English mannfactnrerers thc splendid new field which awaited their enterprise in Australia. Of all the British exhibits ut the Garden Paloce there was none, it will be remembered, moro attractive than the show of art glassware and chinawarc ; and it was an admitted fact that the exhibitors liad really no competitors. So wide was the satisfaction then expressed at the exhibits by the thou sands who thronged the immense building that thc princi Sal manufacturing exhibitors, Messrs. Thomas Webb and ons, resolved upon establishing a central representative house in Australin. This step, which has been signally successful, secured to the colony the magnificent exhibi...

ANOTHER ENOCH ARDEN.

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884
Political. " That was an historic speech," says Reynolds' paper "when Mr. Gladstone narrowed down the action of Earl Salisbury to the miserable shuffling of which that ? statesman has through in- numerable bnnglings shown proof. His opposition is based on no principle;;beyond that of leading a party, and for that end would Bacrafice everything." Just after reading that we stumbled on this in the DISPATCH : " There is the hnffishness of an undisci- plined child rather than the shrewdness of a states- man, conscious of; his own integrity and vigour and of the faults of hisjopponents, in his impulsive action on Thursday. Mr. Labouchere asked the Prime Minis- ter the question as to whether he would advise her Majesty to create sach a nnmbeer of peen as would render it more difficult than it is at present waa for the Upper Chamber to throw out measures intro- duced into the House of Commons by Liberal Ministries, and passed by large majorities. Mr. Gladstone, however, at once threw cold ...

Wit & Humour. Too " fly " to be caught-The ball that is , knocked over the garden vail. " Tanned kids " are not fashionable in a . family where the children never obey their parents. A Melbourne physician says that red noses are caused by tight, lacing. Getting lacing tight will have the same effect. A Brisbanite says before he was married he thought his wife was " s thing of beamy," and now he knows she is a " jaw forever." " No, I haven't been to the bird-show," said a man who was very deeply in debt ; "there are too many bills there to suit me, and just now I'm trying to find a way to feather my own nest." " Gentlemen of the jury," said a Sydney lawyer, last week, " there were jost thirty-six pig« in the drove. Please remember the fact-jost three times as many as in the jury-box, gentlemen.'' Every married man ought to get his life insured. In case of death, fighting the insurance company for the premium would occupy the widow's mind, and keep her from brooding over her m...

July. 21 à police constable discovered the dead body of a young man lying on the stèps leading from ; the Holborn viaduct into Farringdon-street, London. There was a fearful wound on the right side of the head, and in his right hand he clutched a breechloading pistol, which had evidently been just discharged. The corpse , was removed to the mortuary, and on being searched, a letter addressed to the coroner was found in the coat pocket. It was as follows :-" June 13.-Sir, - At times I have thought it a pity to throw my life away. However, I have chosen the better of two alternatives, and have given up the struggle with which I have become wearied and disgusted. I am not insane, but for the sake of frustrating the barbarous old law anent suicides, I have no objection to the usual verdict being nominally found. -Tours, &c, EDWABD JOXES."

Hanlan was loudly cheered on making his appearance, and when he had come upstairs to the room Beach entered shortly after, and the two shook hands. Among those present were many who had been pro- minent in arranging and carrying oat the match, the two trainers of the competitors, and a number of gentlemen who had taken an active interest in the match.

HANL AN v. BEACH. £500 A-SIDE AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD. Beach ! Beach ! !. Beach ! ! ! and Hanlan ! Hanlon!! Hanlan ! ! ! has filled the air and the papen for days and days, and now nothing will be heard for some time hat challenges and counter challenges, and rumours of challenges, and for a period the public ear will ring with profound tips and bets about Laycock Mid Boss and Clifford. Well, it was a grand race, and it is certainly amusing to hear what so and so said before-hand, and what deep designs are afloat about the inevitable return match. Every street corner, private house, and bar- room rings with it, and no doubt we shall hear of the Beach hat, and the Beach brand of whisky before long. The papers are full of the details of the racing.. The general impression left on the 'minds of men competent to judge is, that Beach is a greater man than anybody ever suspected, and that the race was rowed on its merits.

Charles Dickens—an Acrostic. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884
Charles Dickens-an Acrostic. Come to the grave of Diekens once again, Hearts near and far throughout the wide world's range, AB on the day when came death's mournful change, Bevealing what his life had been to men. Love's tears his silent epitaph were then, Ensuring more than scroll or song the fame,! So simply great, which o'er his honoured name Did rise throngh wondrous power of heart and pen. In our affection's bahn he rests, from whom Came fervent words of human-love and ruth, Kind drops that fall on hearts as rain on earth, Exciting blessed sympathies to bloom Nor holds his page alone bf e's pain and troth, Since o'er our tears gleams sunshine of his mirth. Cross and crown are on his tomb, Holly-branch and myrtle bloom ; ' And between them, as they twine, Bons " a spray of Western pine," lake a symbol or a sign. Ever thus the Master wrought Sadness with the sunny thought ! Death will sere the leaf and bloom In the glorious minster-gloom Crumple cross and crombie crown, Keep the...
