The Van Dioman's Land authoriites seemed to take a special delight in distribut ing their convict stations. No less than three penal settlements 'were established within a few years of each other. The first inde'uief at Ilobart Town (Port Arthur), the second on the Tamar (Launceston), and the third ins 1S1i at Macquarie Harbor. Of all those stations the last was the worst and most dreaded by the felons. Macguarie Harbor is situated on the south-west coast of Van Dieman's Land.. In all the wide world there is not a wilder nor more nnh?scsitable coast than this. The gigantic cliff; have to maintain a perpetual battle with the bleak and stormy Southern O:ts.

Words of Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 July 1891
Words of Wisdom. It is certainly right to seek for and to recurs a fair return for all labor; but the consuming desire for more than this, the restlessness that is never uatisfied and that never says, "It is enough," the discontent that always undervalues what it poseetaed and covets what is out of reach, is the worm at the core of real happinese.

Seizing a favourable moment, the driver jumped frou his scat and tried to seize the hlorses leads, butthli bus ran over one of his feet, and while hie hopped about on one foot, clasping his wounded leg, and invoking all the curses in Christendom on the fractious horses, they galloped merrily along Lygon-street and got as far as the Rising Sun hotel before they were stopped. M?eanwhile there was a lineal descendent of Brianr. oru, begorra, in the bus.-a Mrs. Johanna 3M'Gilli cuddy-and as she was banged against the roof, and concussed violently on the floor, or shot...

Not that lie was in a light or trifling mood.for he was not. , No one seeing him then would have taken him for the indifferent, impassive man of the world he was generally conceded to be. There was an unwonted fire in his eye, and the lines of his face seemed to have hardened into a mask, as if he would perforce prevent their betraying the hot thoughts that surged through his brain. He watched the carriage as it drove out of the grounds, and then with a set purpose took his way after it. It did not matter to him how far the hall was away. It suited him for the moment to follow the woman he loved. He made no secret of it to himsel...
Helen Benton's Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 July 1891
Helen Benton's Story. When I took passage on the Castle Clifford for Australia 1 went, like the boys in the story books, to seer my fortune. It was a comical thing for a girl to do, but I was alone in the world, and the pros. pect of being a goveuness, or a companion to a lady, which w.s all I could be in Engluud, made me desper.te. There in the New World, I said to myself, I could set to work to make my fortune. I lould, perhaps, with what money I had, buy a little land and cultivate it-- had a talent for that sort of thing, I believed, and, with the help of a few laborers, I could have a model farm, a beautiful dairy, raise fruit, and live amongst the greenthings growing to the end of my days. Oddly enough, the thought that I might marry never entered my mind., At twenty-five I considered myself "set tied." and expected to be a spinster. Of1 course on ehipboard one alwayu maies acquaintance with some of the other pas eengere, and the captain, seeing me alone, introduced me to a go...

Whist as She is Played " Iris" Pictures a Quiet Evening At Home. (ScEmE: The small sitting, room. A polished floor glimmering between rugs. book-shelves with calf-bound "favorites," which no one ever thinks of readine. A sofa with two pillows, on which Lilian's fair hand has depicted some strange, prendamite forms of vegetation, of future value as illus trating the first savage stares of decorative art. Round a green-baize table fit the family playing whist. Mamma, a benign, stout, gentle lady, with eyebrows perpetually lifted in a state of mild and plaintive deprecation, and glasses well down on the tip of her nose, plays with paps, at whom she gazes with timorous appeal. Papa, rotund, flushed, gray-haired, tilts his chair back on its hind legs, or elec hitches it close to the table. As the interest of the gamor increases, he un fastens, one by one, the buttons of his waist coat, beginning from the bottom, till it gapes open and reveals a triangle of shirt. The opponents of Papa an...
