THE ASS OF THE BIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
THE Ass oF THE BIBLE.-The domestic ass of the East is a very different animal from that of. Western Europe in size, power of endurance, and spirit. Much attention is paid to the breed by crossing finest specimens. In a certain play-room, not long' ago, a little girl climbed up in a chair for some thing, and tipping over, chair and all, began to cry as loud as she could cry.. Mamma comforted her. A little while afterwards, Edna, who is almost two years younger than her sister, tipped over in the same: way; but she didn't cry-not a bit of it. "What a brave little girl !" said mamma; at which Ava putout her lip.. "· Pooh !" said she, with a good, deal of scorn, "that isn't any thing. I think most piobably she couildn't cry if she wanted to ! I think maybe her cryer's broke ?"
PRETENTIOUSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
PRETENTIOUSNESS.. The writer of the present article has had three or four experiences lately which have connected themselves together in his mind. Some months ago, he was in one of the many British possessions beyond the seas. There he was asked to dinner by a gentle man holding a subordinate official position. The dinner was a very elaborate one. There was some water.y soup, and several entrees, with finer names than flavor; und a couple of badly-cooked joints; and a long-named, ill-made pudding. The wines were many, of which he can remember only the fiery sherry and the bad champagne. A short time afterwards, the writer had the honor to be asked by the governor of the province to dine with him privately. ,' He had an excel lent dinner, sharing with the great man a good leg of mutton, a delicious rice-pudding, and a bottle of sound 'claret. On the return voyage, he was sitting the first day on the deck of' the steamer, watch ing his fellow-passengers promenading up and down. Two co...
STONE THROWING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
STONE THROWING.. . TO THE EDITOR.: I fiid the' above' evil: exists here as ell, as. in other parts of the colony. :My :little boy: whilst: sitting. on the Doctor's pier was',; partially. stunned by ~ i'stoe,' arid his'head ba'dly cut' open, causiig .himi to fall6veik and bruise his forehead badly' as. well. The stone appeared to come from: amongst the trees; and if the perpetrator' 'could be found out I should feel justified iii pros ecuting him. The police will, if .they quietly. walk along. the Cliff, see boys frtquently throwing stones, 'trying` who can .thorow 'the longest distance, a practice which should :be stopped at once ; if' you. will kindly insert :this, attention will be drhwn'to it, and I hope the evil sthinped out.

AN ENTERPRISING CONSTABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
Ad.. ENTERPRISING CONSTABLE. A constable was awaking echoes on a silent night by the measured tread of his heavy footsteps on the pavement of a fashion-. able west-end street, when he was startled by shrillicries of " thieves !" and " murder I" close at hand. Being a young man, eager to distinguish himself, he ran at the top of his speed in the direction whence the sounds proceeded, and found a small group of men, including another constable, congregated outside a large house. S"What's up ?" he inquired of his col league. "Blessed if I know ! The 'woman seeinms bod frightened to do anything except scream," growled the officer-an old hanid-apostro. phiiing'the row of heads which were thrust out from the apper windows. "Hi, there-l colie down and open the door !" "Lbelieve somebody has beeriishot. :I'm sure I heard a report as I turned the corner," said a young gentleman in' evening dross, who was apparently returning-from a ball;'- . "Here, Smith, you run round to the back,!' said th...

THE ANTI-TOBACCO LEAGUE. (Morning Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 February 1884
THE ANTI-TOBACCO LEAGUE. (Morning Advertiser.) The counterblasts of the Aiiti-Tobacco League havehand the familiar result.of effort overdone or misapplied. The exaggerated fashion in which the use of the Indian leaf has.been denounced and its evils depicted has rather brought discredit upon the ene mies of the weed than made converts from the use of it. We doubt, indeed, whether a single smoker has ever yet been induced to discard his pipe or his cigar, his snuff-box or his quid, by the " frightful examples " the reformers are in the. habit of parading in support of their movement. The argument and the instances are all commonplace. It is not enough to be told that the smoker risks a peculiar disease of the heart and brain, that he is liable to a special form of amaurosis, that, if he escapes cancer, he is the more likely to perish by paralysis, and so forth. All this is very terrible, and so are the stories of victims whose lungs were found, on post mortem examination, shrivelled u...
