VICTORIA'S FIRST ' MASS. Recond of 71 Years. Roman Catholic develop ment. It was 71 years on Sunday last since the first Roman Catholic mass was cele brated 'in Victoria, and the event was commemorated'at the solemn- high mass in St. Patrick's Cathedral on Sunday last. Archbishop Carr, in Ihis sermon, said that Pentecost marked two remarkable anniversaries, one in the general history | of the church and the other in tho ecclesiastical annals ? of the Church in Victoria. So far as this latter event was concerned, it was 71 years ago, on Pente cost Sunday, that the first mass was offered in Melbourne, in what was then the Port Phillip settlement. The mass was ofiered in a hired and unroofed store, at the corner of Elizabeth and Little Collins streets, on a spot now occupied by the Coloaial Bank, and the priest was the Rev. Patrick Geoghegan, who labored there with apostolic zeal and success until he was created Bishop .of Adelaide. A comparison between the state of affairs existing in...

A Treasure in Peril. j Indignant Wife: That new chau feur has only just brought the child ren and me home, and now he's tak en the cook out for a spin. Husband: Great heavens! He doesn't half know how to manage a car, and she's the ? first decent cook , we've had in a year.' Two farmers of the old school stood upon the platform of a railway sta tion the other day, when a lady'passed dressed in the height of fashion. . 'There, John,' said one, 'what do you think, of that lady?' ? . ? John eyed her for a minute and then said: 'Ah, Bill, it is bad ground that takes so much top-dressing.'

"THE MAJOR-GENERAL." A Story of a Father's Sacrifice. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
; 'TH E MAJOR-GENERAL.' A Story of a Father's Sacrifice. We called him the Major-General because he carried himself so erect and was so precise in his speech. He was a proud1 man, John Watt, arid he had reason to be. 'There never was a Watt against whom the breath of suspicion blew.' as he said it his eyes would flash and his stick would come down hard. 'And I hope there neve*r will be. I'm proud of my name, sir. There!' Since his wife died, thirteen years before, the Major-General and his only son had lived together alone. Young John had his father's abil ity, but he was wanting in that firm ness of mouth and fearlessness of eye that characterised the older man. Old. John had made him a clerk. He drove a pen in the office attached to the quarry for six years.- Then a fe ver of unrest gripped him, and he got a post in Glasgow. - 'You'll watch yourself in that big, wicked place,' his father warned him. It's so easy to go wrong.' ?'I'll be all right,' said the young one, easily. 'Ther...
THE CAT—AN APPRECIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
THE CAT— AN APPRECIATION. Of all domestic animals, remarks a contributor to the 'Evening: Stand ard,' the cat .retains the most traces of aboriginal wildness. And therein lies her charm. She ' is full of the unexpected. This . 'Angel in the House,' tnis mirror oi gentleness, nas . i a wonderful knack of geting her own i way. Mere human wills fail before i that quiet persistence, born of long i ancestral experiences .in the primitive forest. And. we, poor beaten strate- i gists that we are, take our shameful ' defeats like milk. For she . does it' all with so winning a grace, so coquet ? cish a charm, that she not only es capes the punishmerit which, were she a dog, she would instantly receive, but - . her very independence adds to the piquancy, of the minx's character, and makes us flatter ourselves all the. more upon the favors she deigns to give. Beside this quality of tantalising winsomeness, the obedience of the dog -g. is apt to seem tame and bourgeois. He is like the companion...
A Time of Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
A Time of Trouble. At ten o'clock the cashier in a cer tain establishment was seized with in fluenza; At noon the bookkeeper gasped and collapsed. ' Both men were sent home in a cab, and the criDDled establishment was left to get along as well as it could in such unforeseen circumstances. ?' At 1.30 the typist announced that he must \ go and put his feet into hot water, or his dissolution would follow. He was given permission to save his life. * - At two o'clock the three clerks suc cumbed together; they attributed the attack to some fish of which they had incautiously partaken. The proprietor was now left , alone, save for the presence of one small office boy. Presently he arose, and put on his hat with a determined air. , 'Tommy,' he said, 'I think you and I had better go and see the match, too!' ? 1
Four Months' Growth. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
Foilr Months' Growth. 'There,' exclaimed a traveller, after relating to his friend a thrilling story of a perilous adventure on Mont Blanc, 'that was a bit of hair-raising, wasn't it?' 'Rather,' said the friend; 'I should ju^t think so! ? But, you know, you've told me most of that story before.' 'Indeed?' exclaimed the traveller. 'I'm very sorry, old man ! When was that?' , 'Oh, last April!' carelessly replied the friend. 'And in the four months since then you have climbed to the top, succored a fainting guide, sus tained a snowstorm on the summit, aided two benumbed strangers on the way down, and guided an entire party to the foot!

FLUFFY-TAIL'S TEA-PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
FLUFFY-TAIL'S TEA-PARTY. I It ^ was one of the most select , tea parties of the season; one , to which all the other pussy-cats round about'would have given anything to have obtained, an invitation. Indeed, there were quite a number to have been seen— I had you taken the trouble to look — peeping through the crack between the garden door,, and straining to get a glimpse of their more fortunate rivals from between the leaves of the win dow-creeper; but they would not have been seen watching for anything, for to-morrow they will feign the utmost indifference &s to the whole affair. Still, for all that, the tea-party was one of .the greatest interest to tho catty world, and deep down in each little kitten's heart they acknowledged that the smell of those shrimps was inde scribably good, although,' with their small noses high in the air, it was' universally agreed that the. contents of that dish, were decidedly ancient and high! Yet not so, thought the two fortunate guests at Ma...

Dukes and Ducks. Mr. Charles Lyell, M.P. told a West ; Edinburgh audience that dukes were really not greatly different from ordinary, people. That was the disco very, once upon a time, madec by a auiau Doy at inverary, wno pestered his father until he brought him to see the 'Duke of* Argyll. ? Quite unabashed, the . youngster ap proached his ducal magnificence. 'Can ye swim?' he inquired. 'No, my lad,' said the Duke, much amused, 'I cannot swim.' 'Can ye flee?' was the next ques tion, put in equal callousness. - 'I am afraid,' replied the Duke, 'that I cannot fly either.' . 'Then,' said the boy triumphantly, 'ye're nae better than ane o' ma faither's- dUkes, for - they can baith swim and flee.' ? ?
