MRS. TRELON'S TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

MRS. TEELON'S TROUBLE. It was Mrs. Trelon's custom to breakfast on the wide verandah from the time spring was fairly out of swaddling clothes uutil the autumn winds drove her back into the house. She was such a tiny, fragile old lady that a gentle gale could have swept her away, coffee cup in hand, but the light breeze that was stirring one Septem- ber morning treated her tenderly. It lifted the corner of her fleecy shawl, it tossed a bright yellow maple leaf into her lap, and even ventured to take some liberties with, her white hair, but, on the whole, it forebore to play any impish tricks on the mistress of the Trelon homestead. She dwelt alone there; she could not be lured away by her married daughters. She was waiting patient- ly for the day when her son should grow weary of roaming and return to step into his father's shoes. Mrs. Trelon loved the fair domain that she had ruled over for so many years, but she was eager to abdicate in favour of her son's wife. Unluckily he had no...

POOR DICK WARRINGTON. MAT KENDALL in Longman's Magazine. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

POOR DICK WARRINGTON. Mat Kendall in Longman's Maga- zine. He had been a gentleman once, and a scholar who had won honours at Cambridge, and was regarded as one of the best men in a college at that time unusually rich in promise. He had just seen one familiar companion of his in the old days pass into the New Law Cathedral, outside whose gates be was lounging. The famous judge gave a glance at the disreput- able loafer as he went by, but never recognised him ; if he had done so he would ¿probably have spoken, for be was a kindly-heurted man. But this very fact made the reprobate more bitter. If his old Iriend had cut him there would have been some ground for declaiming against the hollowusss of mankind, but Dick Warrington knew well enough that he himself bud sunk out of recognition, and' one's own worthlessness is not so cheering a subject of meditation as the worth« lessness of other people. . He pondered over neither, but only gazed moodily after the retreating figure of his old ...

The accommodation afforded by The Goat Tavern Cb travellers, who re . quired anything more than refresh- ment by the way, was limited and indifferent, consisting of a lew small rooms with low eeilings, furnished in -a poor and comfortless manner. Nevertheless, considering the shabby appearance of the stranger, and the ^ fact that his travelling equipment consisted oi a rusty and ancient leather hand-bag, he might have been a little less hard to please than he proved when he was introduced to one of those sleeping-rooms by the landlady, who regarded him with evident disfavour.

AN EXCITING SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

AN EXCITING SCENE. .». Shortly after six o'clock on the evening of the 16th ult., Queen-street, between Albert - and George streets, was (the Brisbane Courier states) the scene of great excitement, and. scores of persons witnessed a collision between au omnibus and the horses of a tramcar, brought about in the most deter- mined and wilful manner. One of the newer kind of tramcars, No. 35, was returning along Queen-street from New -Farm, and had passed Edward-street. A New Farm omni- bus, No. 1, was ahead, driving along the tram, rood. The car driver states that he whistled and otherwise signalled for the bus driver to clear off the rood and allow the car to pass. The signals were apparently unheeded until near Albert street, when the bus was driven over to the other side of the street, and the speed of the car at once increased. It appears, however, that the bus had barely got off the tramway when one of its wheel» and the awning over the windows were struck: by the car. Subsequent ...

AN AMERICAN UPON ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

AN AMERICAN UPON ENGLAND. -«i-. An "American Banker," who has visited England with his eyes open, and written an interesting book, says : - "I had always heard much in praise of the rugged and vigorous out-of-door habi s of the young men of England : but my ideas in this regard received rather a set back when I studied the habits and observed the physique of English students at the famous school towns and university towns. I remember being somewhat astonished when I Was starting out one morning to walk from Rugby to London, to find that none of the crowd of rather delicate-looking boys who were walk- ing about the town, or gliding over its streets on bycicles or tryciclés, seemed to know much about the highway that would take them to London ; and this famous Tom Brown School is, if I remember correctly, only about seventy miles from the mighty metropolis of England, over highways the finest and pleasantest in the world. These young men were very much astonished to hear me talk of wa...

" You should not be," said the parson ; " you didn't preach a sermon yesterday." "No," said the lady, almost unconsciously ; " but I listened to one." Then followed an oppressive silence, which gave ihe minister time to reflect that ho had come out only second best. A white man ...

Exportation of Australian Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

Exportation of Australian Fruit. Our neighbours in the South are determin- ed to make a thorough attempt to introduce v Australian-grown fruits on the English mar- ket during the time of the Colonial Exhibi- tion. South Australia and Victoria nave enter tered into a joint arrangement with the Orient Steamship Company for a cool chamber in which to place the fresh fruit. The ship- ments are to be made fortnightly, and the ar- rangements are under the superintendence of the local Commissioners of the Exhibition. Besides forwarding fruit regalarlyonacconnt of the Exhibition, the Commissioners an- nounce that they wilLacçept fruit from pri -*ate individuals and land it in London at on- ly half the cost charged to the Commission for freight. It is fully anticipated that this concession will induce a large number of pri- vate shippers to experiment in the undertak- ing. Fruit has been frequently shipped to England from Adelaide, and the success of -these experimental shipments was just su...

Poultry in-and-breeding. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

Poultry iu-and-breeding. Some interesting experiments upon the tendency of indiscriminate in-and-in-breeding to diminish the egg-laying powers of poultry are recorded in an American paper. The ex- perimenter found that from the first in-and-in cross, produced from mating the male to his own pullets, there was but little diminution in the number of eggs. The produce of the second-in-breeding (brother to sisters) did not lay half as many - eggs annually as their mothers. From the third in-cross (mating the father with his own pullets, out of his sisters) not one fourth as many eggs wore laid as by the original parents, and they did not commence to lay until one year old, and some of this third cross never laid a single egg. The breeds experimented with were White Leghorns and White Hamburgs. Other- ex- periments with Cochins produced a like re- sult. These experiments explain in a clear way how it is that the egg production from the average uncared-for flock of the cottager is so seld...

The Oldest Bridegroom on Record. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

The Oldest Bridegroom on Record. .We hear nowadays of curious instances of longevity, and corresponding activity, but we doubt whether any register of thiB century will contain what is to be seen at St. Brid- get's Church, in Chester, where we read of Mr. George Harding,"aged 107, being united to Mrs. Woodward, 83 years old. A very long congregation witnessed the ceremony., The bridegroom served iu Queen Anne's army, I and also under George I. and II. This lady was his fifth wife, he having married his fourth bride at 1Q5 years of age ; and Mrs. Woodward had three husbands before Mr. Harding. As a triumph for vegetarians, it was stated that the hale old gentleman had, for the last 30 years, chiefly lived on butter- milk and floor, bread, and cheese.-Illustra- ted London News.

A Smart Jest. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

A Smart Jest. There was an eminent serjeant-at-law some years-ago who had a cork leg that was a triumph of artistic deception. _ None but his intimates knew for certain which Was the real and which was the sham limo. A wild young wag of the " outer bar," who knew the sergeant pretty weil, once thonght to utilise thiß knowledge of the Berjeant's secret to take in a green, newly fledged young barrister. The Serjeant was addressing a special jury at Westminster in his usual earnest and vehe- ment style, and the wag whispered to his neighbour-'* Yon see how hot old Buzfuz is over the case : now Til bet you a sovereign 111 run this pin into ;his leg up to the head, and he'll never notice «it, he's so absorbed in' his speeoh.

The Resurrection Morning. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

The Resurrection Horning. The household was recently increased by the advent, unwelcome to all but the young- est member, of seven kittins. Their doom of course, was unquestioned ; so, also, was the manner of their taking off, which, according to the custom of all civilised people, is drowning in a "wash-tub, followed by burial at the root of the grape vine. The sacrifice was postponed until such time as the young- er member aforesaid was absent on a visit of a day -when the deed was done. Arrived home, the first inquiry after breakfast was : " Where are the kittens ?" Diplomacy was neoessary. The whole of the «vwful truth could not be communicated without danger. " They died yesterday," he was told. M What did you do with 'em r" pursued the inquisitor. The place of burial was indicated, and with a face expressing thoughtful determination, the? infant investigator left the room. Nothing was surmised of ids purpose until,' in the course of the forenoon, he made his appear -ance at th...
