A Capable Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 13 August 1887

A Capable Girl. K- is one of those new, thriving towns that spring up with the advent of a railroad; a splendid business place, with a great amount of bustle. Some good families had come, as they always do to such a town, making an os tentatious virtue of their " poor surroundings, so different from what we have been accus tomed to, you know." Capitalists had come in a cautious way, investing a few thousands in land, and altogether the place was flourish ing. The belle of the town was a Miss Dar lington, a dashing brunette, who taught music to the pretentious families of H-. Exactly where she came from no one could say, but they are not very particular about antecedents in those new railway towns. She was very lady-like, a brilliant musician, and certainly brought unexceptional testimonials from wealthy people in Melbourne. She had sung in a church choir, too, and talked of the great deprivation she experienced in the lack of a young woman's Christian association. It was she who sug...

A Reformatory Typewriter. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 13 August 1887

A Reformatory Typewriter. A business friend of ours, who has an enor mous amount of cdrrespondence to attend to, owns a typewriter, and he has an assis tant to work it. This man is so quick that, in taking letters that are dictated by my friend, he rarely uses shorthand, but dashes them off on the machine. There is only one trouble with Mr. Slack, the manipulator of the keys, and that is that he takes too much drink. He admits that it \is hurting him, but he dosen't seem to have strength of mind enough to give it up. Our friend has labored with him a good deal, and with some success. He dosen't want to discharge him -first, because be is a most excellent man; and, second, because -he is sure he will go to the bad when he leaves. He has never yet had the " horrors,", although he has come rather close to them sometimes. These near approaches always make him struggle to amend. We told our friend that what Slack needed was a real good tussle with the blue devils to make him quit the hab...

Little People. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 13 August 1887

Little People: " There is more pleasure in giving than in receiving," was the proverb that a mother was trying to instill into a youthful mind. " That's true about castor oil, mother," was the reply she got. A fair, young mother, just before going to a ball, entered the nursery with her husband to bid her little daughter good night. The child looked at her in astonishment, and a moment after the tears came into her big, ,blue eyes, and she sobbed out, "-Poo' mamma l Poo'. Nellie's mamma 1" "Why, what's the matter, Nellie ?" asked her father. But the latter went on sobbing and caressing her mother's cheek till the latter trembled for her make up. "What's the matter with your mamma?" asked her father. "Poor mamma's all squeezed up froo 'e top her dress I" Little Charley had been very naughty, and was imprisoned for an hour in the kitchen wood-box. He speedily began amus ing himself with chips and splinters, and was playing quite busily and happily, when a neighbor entered the house by...

It. Broke Up the Business. Two rather seedy-looking individuals met at one of the 'principal corners` lately, and greeted each other with effusion. " What you doin' ?" asked one. " Selling secondhand Jubilee prints of the Queen. What'r you doin' ?" "Ain't doin' nothin' now, except nursing this," indicafing a black eye. " How d' you get it?" " Got it doin' the rescue biz in Sydney." :"'Rtescuebliz ? What's that?" . *^ "Well, you are green. Me an' a pal o' mine. made good money.out of it in Ballarat and afterwaids in Sydney. He was a big, feller, an' could eat me alive. He'd. dress slouchy, and I'd keep myself up in pretty fair shape. We'd strike a.lonely street in a kind of a swell neighborhood, he taking one side of the street and I the other, and walk ing.along. until he saw a lady that looked as if she had cash. If there wasn't any one about he'd go up and spe'ak to her. Of course that would frightei. her half to death, but he'd just hang on and try to walk with' her. Then my turn...

A New Spring Bonnet. In nine cases out of ten the woman who starts out to buy her spring bonnet does so confessing publicly that she "hasn't* the least idea what she wants." This, of course, makes it easy and pleasant for the milliner and her assistants.. The milliner's assistant, who is one of the martyrs of modern times, comes forward and asks sweetly : " Were you looking for a bonnet ?" "Well, yes; that is, I-"' "'What kind would you like ?" "Well, I really don't know: I haven't made up my mind -yet. Let me see what you have." "Yes, certainly; how would you like a fancy braid with a-" " No ; I don't like those fancy braids.

For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 13 August 1887

Amongst the greatest treasures of the fine art collection that belonged to the late Baron Meyer de Rothschild, head of the famous banking-house, and whose death at Frankfort occurred last year, was a portrait of Goethe by Tischbein. It is said that the artist and poet were travelling companions on one occasion, and in the course of their journey found them selves entirely destitute of funds, so much so that the hotel bill was unable to be met. A bargain was made that Tischbein should paint his friend's portrait for the landlord in one day, and that it should be left in payment of their expenses. So admirably was the painting executed, that the man, when giving his receipt to the arsist, added thirty florns as expressive of his satisfaction; A very different sum was paid when the Baron purchased it. At the recent sale of Lord Crawford's library, the sum of £2,650 was given for a copy of the famous ". Gutenburg" Bible, printed about the year 1450. The Buddhist cloister at Haine, Thibe...

On one occasion I divi ded my money and gave half of it to Jack Davies, with the instructions not to let me have it until I was on my way to -the ,train., That same day I got broke as usual,- imme diately hunted up Davies, and made such a strong talk to him that he became dis gusted, gave me back my money,.aind told me never to come in, his place again.
