THAT MUSICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
-XIAT MUSICAL PIG. So9mey remagoa clde-er player of that queer instrument the biasoon was upjon a ·tour in Ireland with an operatic company, and after a successful season in Dublin, he had a few dayc of leisure before open ing at Cork. Our friend took advantage of the oppor tunity to go into the country, and took his quarters at a little wayside inn, near Skibbereen. He took his bassoon for-the sake of practice, and in order notto annoy the inmates of the house, used occasion ally to run over a difficult passage in a loft over the stable. One day during a pause after practice he heard voices outside. "Doubtless," thought the musician, "they are criticis ing:my performance" ;and he listened to the speakers. "WVhisht ! Patrick, did ye hear that now? Sure its the ould pig, takin' a les son in music." "Ye omadhaun !" cried his companion, "what music would ye get from a pig but a grunt '" At this moment the musician gave a flourish on the bassoon, and the unbeliever was convinced. "Begor...

Irish Wit and Humor. (Continued. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
Irish Wit and Humor.. BY T. L. COLEMAN. (Continued Irishmen still hold the-pride of place,. no matter how witty other nations have become. Let him or three representatives. of as many nations get togetsher, and let the conversation be as brilliant as it may, Pat is sure to go one better than the best, if not by a stroke of wit, then by an equally amusing blunder, which answers the purpose just as well. Instances of this are not wanting, and we all remem ber at some period of our lives, how we have laughed heartily upon hearing such. For instance, take the example of the Englishman who boasted that he had been taken for the Prince of Wales. A Scotclhman, unwilling to be outdone, told how he had been taken for the Dokeof Argyle. "Faith" said an Irishman "As I was walking along the street the other day, a man came and slapped me on the back and sez he 'Howly Moses is that you ?"' Jokers, practical or otherwise, find Pat always the hardest nut to crack on account of.his wit. A well know...

ETIQUETTE IN TWELVE LESSONS. A French aristocrat has been trying to palm off his own notions on the world as the standard of taste. We scorn to do this; our system is based upon the collective wisdom and experience of the ages. 1. Always take your hat off to your hair dresser. 2. Never offiler your arm to adissecter until you are quite cold. 3. Alwars bow low before slowly-drooping chandelier. 4. Butlers should always be treated with deference, but servility is a mark of higher breeding. 5. Never precede your wife when there is an alarmnn of burglars. 0. Never eat peas with strychnine. 7.- Avoid making a noise while swallowing something in the pantry. 8. In introducing the lady you are walking with to your wife be careful not to mention the latter's name. 9. If in doubt, do as the others don't, and don't as the-y do. 10. Avoid politeness. Politeness is the mark of a saoundrel. 11. -Alway:s give up your seat in 'bus or car to a lady if you have arrived at your destina tion and if the...

OVER THE THRESHOLD. Over the threshold wi-ith dancing feet, Spring in the morning air wondrously sweet, Fly o'er the daw drops lik,' diamond rain, Flowers that curtsey and spring up again. Sing, sing as :;ou go along, Life is sweet to the young and strong; Out of the shadow and into the light, Past and gone in the mournful night, Nought behind you would fain forgot; Sing, dear beort, till the June sun set. Over the threshold at hot noontide, Pass, in the snowy veil folded, fair bride. tioh with the wonderful gift of a love, Tender and t ue as the heavens above; Sing, sing as ye go your way, Songs are meft for a marriage day; Out of the shadow and into the light, Life is waiting you. necand bright, Evening sha.owsr come by and by Sing, dear heart, while the sun is high. Over the threshold, with footsteps slow, fearing the quiet Dead, sadly they go, Under the golden leaves falling like rain Over the yellow grass fading again; Sing. sing as ye go your way, eJst is sweet at the close of...
TELEGRAPHING A JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
TELEGRAPHING A JOKE. An amusirg incident, which two youngmen will probably remember for some time to r?ome, occurIed in the dinner room of the Hotel del Jlcnte. One of the members of the etnductor'o pleasure excrsion to California, :?ith his pretty young wife, was seated at breakfast wh ?n two young district telegraph c'irators from the city, down for the "''hanksgiviag frolic to tonterey," entered Ibhe room and sat down directly opposite the Elastern man and his wife. It was not long be[ore the yooths spotted the lady, and as is uuol with the class to which they belong, thlleY immediately fell to work criticising her t, each other under cover of their knowledge of the art of telegraphing. "Pretty girl that," tapped one on the edge of his sau~r with his spwan, "think I'll try a mash." " Better look out," replied the other with his fork on his rlate, "the old stiffil smell a mice." "Net much," tapped back number one, "he don't amount to shuck. I'll bet I kiss her before night-what a ...
OUR GIANT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
OUR GIANT. We have a giant in the house, And not a neighbour lknows it; For neither age nor size nor strength Nor surly manner shows it. His-dimpled hand upon my arm Is rosy, soft, and waxen, Andhears no club; he wears no beard. His hair is soft and flaxen. He has two eyes and not a tooth Our strong one is no ogre. &lt; He wears instead of skins and claws A little RPoman toga. .. His voice is gentle as a dove's, His laughter is delightful; But cross his temper just a bit, His screams are long and frightful. He eats and drinks the best we have, And offers not to pay us; Indeed with Chinese wakefulness We fear he means to slay us. SThis giant does not like the dark Now is not this surprising? And, though he never works a bit, Insists on early rising. You cannot walk, you cannot talk, You helpless little giant I Your very life-ah ! here's your power - Is on our love reliant. So take our love and toil and care As long as you shahl need us, And we shall not go far astray With a l...
HOME HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 March 1895
" I-OIE ~HINTS. A nice bed-spread for the children's room in winter is madeof three and one half widths of turkey red calico sewed to gether and hemmed . This loolks bright and cheerful and saves the expense of washing counterpanes. A pretty spread for summer is of two and a quarter yards of sheeting.'* A large wreath or square is stamped ini the centre and worked in some fancy stitch with red, blue, or white cotton floss. I have one chain stitched in wh;ite floss, and it has been in ude for seven years. I do not like the practice of "covering" old bed comforters, as the latter are soiled, cold and heavy, especially for the purpose of covering small children. The old comforters should be ripped, the cot ton carded over, more added, if neces sary, and then put between new covers. I never allow any children to lie on comforters, hence, with frequezt airing, they remain soft and light for years. : One of those flat shopping baskets, in fashion some years ago, makes a4conve nient recept...
