Your Wife's Relations. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

Your Wife's Relations. To be on friendly terms with one's wife's relatives should be the modest aim of every married man. I would extend this friendly. sentiment even to the mothers-in-law,' than whom no class of human beings, male or female, has been more or less unjustly maligned. - I speak not of the puny darts of the humorous paragrapher, for he is to be forgiven much in that he suffers much, but of that unwholesome sentiment pervading' all 'classes which has invested the mother-in-law. with the form and semblance of a social dragon, to be hated, despised, combated, driven out, but never loved. There is a great deal to be said on her side. A mother, look you, rears her daughter with what ex. penditure of care,' money, heartburning, anxiety she can. She sees the young thing ripen into the fullness of her beauty, and is no mother at all if, in her eyes at least, that: beauty is not more beautiful than any other in the world. Thus, Dolly's complexion may not be good, but then she w...

HOW TO CLARIFY WINES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

HOW. TO CLARIFY WINES. Mention was made some time since of a method which had been hit' upon' by D. R. Prevost for the clarifying of wine by the ad dition of a small quantity of pure extracted honey to the juice of the grape. The gen. tleman referred to has been experimenting by the admixture of honey with various kinds of liquor, and was very muchesurprised to see that, no matter how clear and pure the liquor treated might have been origi nally, a heavy deposit of impurities was pre cipitated to the bottom of the vessel used. It then struck him that the discovery might be of 'value in the clarifying of new wines, and a series of experiments showed that in a sur prisingly short time every single ,paiticle!of impurity in a cask of wine could be 'pre cipitated and drawn off, while at the same time the quantity of honey used was so small, and it also settled with the impurities in the liquid, that no trace was' left of the presence of any foreign substance in ,the wine. The method of u...

April Foolishness. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

April Fooi Lhnes., ' It is rather behind the times to tell an April-fool story at this date, but a good one has just come to my notice, and will, I think, be worth telling. In a certain first-class hotel in my native city; there is: a young German 'employed who does small jobs about the kitchen, He goes :by the name of Sax, and he was badly gone on one of the waiter girls whose name is Anna. He doesn't care for her now, and he is sadder and just a little bit wiser man. Anna didn't care a little bit for Sax, and as he annoyed her con siderably by his attentions, she determined, without exactly giving him the cut direct, to get rid of him somehow or other. It so hap pened that an idea struck her just on the first day of April by which she thought she could accomplish her wish's. So along in the morn ing, after the breakfast work was over, she, witha' mysterious air, beckoned Sax into the laundry room, and he, thinking he was to be favor d with a lover's quiet tete a tete, of course fo...

A Sundowner. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

A Sundownr. She was on the front step mending Farmer Thornley's stockings, when Baxter, the new farm hand, came and sat down on the rude peat by the door, and hung his hat upon his knee and took his pipe from his mouth. "D5o you mind the pipe ?" he asked. Polly looked up in surprise; non.i of the farm hands had ever consulted her on the subject before; even Mr. Thornley himself smoked and smoked without a dream of asking her permission; that is, whenever Mris H:mnah was not near to reproach him with tiuriiig their substance into smoke. Everyone declared that Miss Han nah was the close one, but that Mr. Thornley himself was " mighty near." They used to tell how Miss Hannah had gone to the doctor's, once upon a time, to have an aching molar ex tracted, and how her heart had failed her when he produced the instrument of torture, till the unpatient doctor was forced to say, "Come, now, I'll give you a shilling to have it out and done with, free of charge !" and Miss Hannah p'ucked up co...

Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

Revenge; I have served in the French army (as surgeon) and' sacrebleuJ I never yet stf fered an insult from mortal, being to pass nuavenged. It was in the Tyrol last year. While wandering through that 'picturesque country, I freqfently encoantered two la dies--one elderly, the' other' a widow charming, petite, spirituelle-Adrienne I At last we found, ourselves quartered at the same hotel, and I rapidly succumbed to the fair widow's charms-she was so sym pathetic, so vivacious, yet with all that sa. voir faire of experience which an elderly bachelor knows how to appreciate. Her figure-how delicious its lines ! What masses of magnificent tresses I What perfect rows of. ivory'her coral-lipped smile permitted us to see I What healthful bloom the exercise and mountain air; had lent to her cheek I Yes, I would priopose that evening. .That night I went up to dress for dinner -an important business with me, and one requiring time. I, had arranged in the morning with the maitre d'hotel to ch...

The "Delusive Phantom." AN ESSAY, BY SIM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

The "Delusive" Phantom." AN ESSAY, BY SIM. What would life be without hope? How many of .us would wish the curtain which obscures our fatiire?~olled?away that we might iwe"p down the coming years with the eye of prophecy ? How many. of us would shrink from the prospect, and, rather than bear the ills'tbocme,' ". lto others we kiiow not of ?" I had come to the' conclusiontl long ago, when the bright, hopeful dreams of youth had been in a measure dissipated by the stern realities of ", grub-getting," that hope was de lusive, but still how I hearken to the voice of the siren. 'How. often I have listened to the creak of the stairs as they echoed beneath the tread of that rent-collector. How. often I have vaguely hoped those stairs might break and precipitate him into the coal-cellar. But they never did. How often 1'have gazed into the cold cruel eyes of the proprietors of my hash-mill, in the vain hope of discovering some tender emotion in those flinty deptbe which might induce me to at...

Two Off-Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

Two Off-Wheels. Old Barty Willard was a wheelright by trade, and though anr excellent workman was'remarkable for his habit of proCrastinat ing. He would promise and then break his engagement over and over again, with as little scruple and as many " positively lasts " as a theatrical star. Having pledged his word to a very urgent customer, for the third time, that he would have his cart done by a certain day, Barty again failed to keep his engagement, and, on the arrival of the owner, the cart was still unfinished. " Well," said the customer, "you'have got my cart done by this time, of course I" " Yes," said Barty, " I had done the work, and supposed it was quite ready for you, when I discovered I had made a mistake-a very unaccountable mistake-that will put me back a fortnight." "Ah, indeed," said the customer, "what's the trouble ?" " Why, you see," said Barty, with great gravity, and an air of extreme vexation, "you see - have made a mistake-I never made such a blunder before in m...

On A Half-Penny. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 6 August 1887

On A Half-Penny. It is almost impossible to attach any im- portance to a half-penny; but, at the same time, it is a very important coin at times. It will take a paper to Queensland, and it will make you madder than a hatter and a March hare combined when you go to pay your fare on a tram car and find that you have but two-pence half- penny and a ten-pound note. Then will the wanting copper seem colossal. Es- pecially when you see the conductor fold your ten-pound note and stow it carefully in his vest pocket,, and then begin to deal you out a lot of change that looks as though it had been in circulation since the Refor- mation. One half-penny is very small when you present it to an organ-grinder's monkey, but when it is added to the rate of interest you receive on a big transaction, it possesses a stern magnificent graudeur that carries you away like a strain of music. 463

That's business. You go upon the pavement, And back a horse or two, And dream about the "certaintry" That's bound to pull you through; But when the night is closing in Upon that racing day, You-see that fickle fortune Has gone the other way, That's gambling.
