Do you another thing recall, That used to often ha ,pen then; How simply passing ilnthe hall, H?'d stopto stals and kiss again? Do you remember how I satt And, reading, held your hand in mine, Caressing it with gentle piat One pat for every blessd line?. Do you recall how at the play Through hours of agony we tarriedl ?

An Interesting Country. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888
An Interesting Country. Philosophliidly, Tincia is the most interesting country in Europe (writes Mrs. Lynn Linton in the 't. Joes's (/arefte). Politically, thins are different; and if, on the one hand, the Nihilists are wrong in theirmethods andtorriblo beyond justification, on the other the Govern ment is more detestable, more inhuman, more tyrannical than aur other extant in Europe; and he would do a deathless service to man who . should destroy it as a Power.

WOOING A .?·TiE INATRE. Allamacher, the printer of Versailles,' who was supposed to have inherited 25,000,O00f: from a testator who died in' Americas, is still playing the part of a " wandering heir." It is stated that the printer really received over £3,000 from a banker in oider to enable him to go to America, where his property was awaiting him, and that the now Monte Cristo has actually sailed for the "States." One, thing,::how ever, is certain (says the Paris correspondent of the Daily Telegraph). Ever since 'the announcement of Allamacher's reputed good luck the office of the printing establishment of Versailles wherein he worked has been inundated by letters from all parts of France.

OVER NIAGARA. A SHIP PLUNGES DOWN THE GREAT ABYSS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888
.OVER NIAGARA.' A -SHIP PLUNGES DOWN THE GREAT - ABYSS.. I was permitted recently to copy from a letter, which .was written'by a former, resident of Lancaster,- an account of a most remarkable occurrence at Niagara Falls sixty years ago which the writer of the letter witnessed, and of which it is doubtful if many people of to-day over heard. No history of Niagara Falls that I ever saw gives any account of it, al. though nothing that over occurred at the great cataract has a more peculiar interest. The letter is especially interesting as giving an illus. tration of the manner in which people went on excursions in the days before railroads. It is doubtful if so many people have over gathered at the falls at one time sinmcoe the day described in this letter. Here is the extract: BurrAo, 9th September, 1828. I was in hopes that I should have got back to this town from the Niagara Falls last evening in time to have dropped you a line re specting the fate of tie schooner Michigan, but owi...
