CHAPTER XVI.—(Continued)         The sentence pronounced on me was     seven years' transportation, which, under the circumstatnces, was not a severe one. My speechifyfing had effect of bring- ing me rather prominently under the notice of the authorities, and the day after my trial I receivcd a visit from the sherif, who subjected me to a lengthy cross-examination. As there was a some- thing the manner of this functionary which was not calculated to invite confidence I was rather curt in my replies, and the turtle-fed gentleman (for it was rumoured in prison that, he imported turtle for his own private feeding) left me in high dudgeon at myreticence.

The Reason Why. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 1 October 1887

The EcasIno Why. She did not speak to me, tho' I Am sure she saw me passing by, Capricious sex! now who would know She was my sweetheart long ago, And gave my ardor sigh for sigh Her glance still mocks an April sky. Her cheeks a mermet rose outvie; I credit all her graces, though She did not speak. Has she forgot love's tender tie, That bound us each his sworn ally ? The vows we pledged for weal or woe, The kisses we exchanged P Ah, no I My wife was with me; that is why She did not speak.

True to Self. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 1 October 1887

Ttrue to Self. A brute of low condition You've heard of him, I s'pose- Had meekly gained permission To warm his precious nose; And then with rough assurance, Quoth he, with brazen face, "This crowd-'tis past endurance e Old fogies, leave this place." Now for this fable's mission : - When faults peep through your gate, Don't let them gain admission Beside your cheerful grate ; But turn them the cold shoulder, And chill them through and through Lest they grow bold and bolder, As fabled camels do, Yo.r face may be as charming, As that of fairest rose; But deem it most alarming If there's a camel's nose But touches it with small deceit. I'll tell you what to do: Just show that camel to'the street, . And "to thyself be true." Your raiment may be simple, Though very rich and fine; Your cheeks may wear a dimple, Your eyes be " just divine." But if you shirk your duty To spy out others' sins, I would not for your beauty Give half a row of pins. You may perchance be "homiel ...---?- But it y...

Boys and Girls. Boys Who Have Become Famous. SNATCHED FROM A FALLING HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 1 October 1887

Boys Who Have Become Fatuous. SNATCHED FROM A FALLING HOUSE. The month of January, 1759, was long re membered in the west of Scotland as the stormiest of the whole year. None save the boldest fishermen-and very few even of them-dared to venture out to sea in the teeth of the roaring gales which had raged unceasingly ever since Christmas Hve, while the hardiest peasants of the hills, though familiar from their childhood with every ridge and hollow for miles around, often had bard work to find their way from place to place through the blinding snows and furious winds of the stormy season. The last day of the month had come, and still the wild weather continued unabated. But neither the howl of the rushing blest nor the crash of the falling trees along the frozen river disturbed the slumbers of a little boy, hardly a week old, who lay sleeping in the rude clay hovel which his father's spade had hastily thrown up not many months be fore. A sturdy little fellow he was, and his strong arm...

Wonderful Clocks. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 1 October 1887

- - Ifondcl?rful Clocks. Many years ago, two clocks of great in genuity and elegant workmanship were made in London and presented to the emperor of China, by the East India company a wealthy organization engaged in commerce. Each clock was made in the form of a chariot, in which was placed the ligure of a lady leaning her right hand upon a part of the chariot, and under it was the clock of curi. ous workmanship. It was smaller than ashil ling piece,would repeat and strike the hours. and would go for eight days. Upon the finger of the lady sits a bird, finely modelled, set with diamonds and rubies, with its tiny wings extended in a flying posture. By touching a diamond button the bird Iwould actually flutter for a time. The body of the bird, although it contained a part of the wheels that gave motion to the clock, was not more than one-sixteenth of an inch in size. The lady held in her left hand a gold tube, not much thicker than a large pin, on the top of which was a small round box...
