Annabel Montaire. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 November 1884

Annabel Montaire           Her name was Annabel Montaire   According to the bill, And she was most surpassing fair, And very versatile.     And when I first espied her form It made my bosom thrill. 'Twas at a well-known hall of ease I saw this charming girl; Her manners could not fail to please The most dyspeptic churl; And when she smiled her lips disclosed A set of teeth like pearl.       And for the brightness of her eyes Comparisons are tame; There's not a star in all the skies That shines with such a flame; And when I say that I was mashed, You'll understand the same. In gorgeous manner she was dressed, And silken was her gown, Her diamonds looked the very best   That anyone could own; Her beauty I'd have sworn could melt A heart of hardest stone, I cannot tell the songs she sung, But they were soft and sweet; And when she s...

DRYSDALE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 November 1884

DRYSDALE NOTES. From a correspondent. What threatened to be a most destructive   hailstorm passed over the district last week, causing the roads and channels to run in a most indiscreditably short time. Fortunately for the onion crops the hail was surprisingly partial, the heavy stones which fell confining themselves to the west of the township where but few onions are grown, otherwise they would have been cut about if not completely destroyed. As it is the rain was   most welcome, filling almost all the dams   within a favored radius to overflowing.   The hay crop throughout Bellarine with few exceptions will be short. Want of early rains has caused the wheat and oats to ear in some instances within a foot of the ground. Nearer Portarlington a day's rain just now would result in a very fair harvest. The fruit gardens in and around Drysdale, more especially to the south, are at present falling a prey to a very unwelcome visitor— th...

One of them can toss large and powerful men about as if they were but footballs, and if a house with a heavy mortgage on it should be placed upon a common.dining table she could pick it up as da~ily as theiexpertsha'rper can pick up the guileless` gullf at a'race course. The most astonishing feat yet accomplished by the other electrical female almost surpasses belief, yet we aie compelled to admit that it is true, for the newspapers relate the fact, and newspapers never lie.
